Girls Write Out
Friday, May 18, 2007

I'm sort of like a chameleon. My surroundings change me. I need color, vibrance, things I love around me. As we come up our hill to our house each day, we go through a gorgeous canopy of trees and every day I'm totally stunned I get to live here. I say something like, "I live here."
"Can you believe I live here?"
"I love my house."
My kids now just roll their eyes and say, "All right Mom, we get it. Enough already."
Today I asked them, isn't it better than what I used to say when we lived in the country? To which my sons replied in unison, "I hate this stupid town!"

I'm losing weight too because there's an open space preserve behind us. If I walk 1.2 miles up hill, this is my view. It reminds me at the end of the walk, I AM SO IN THE CITY!! WOOHOOO!! Happy Saturday people! I'm finishing the paint job on my very old, but very workable kitchen. : )

Congrats, Kristin!
I know you were so glad to get out of that other place and I'm happy you're finally where you want to be. Enjoy the view and the refurbishing.

Abundant blessings,
Jenny Cary

Kris, I "met" this girl online this past week and she said that she's pretty much a Christian hippie. Later, when she said that she likes to read I told her to go buy Poppy's book. She did yesterday and already loves it :) haha!

We're hoping to move very soon...I'm sick of living in an apartment! I want a house! God, Kristin finally got one where she wants it, my turn! LOL.

I'd live in the country any day over the city. We have a great house and a reasonably quiet neighborhood, but give me space, trees and no tall buildings...priceless.

Kristen,
I was in San Francisco last Thurs. and Friday for an 8th grade honor roll trip. We had SO much fun! We did all the tourist-y stuff- the pier, Ghiradelli Square (which was much needed after 16 hours with 8th graders), the cable cars. I love the city. I am taking my husband this summer to go to the Exploratorium. He would LOVE it!
