Okay, I know it isn't Monday but I just couldn't wait to tell you about what my favorite UPS guy delivered. Not because of what it is (I mean of course I love what I got) but because of what it means. I got 3 new audiobooks!! Why is this so important??? Because it means I am going to be driving...far. Yes, the time is here for my trip back to California!!! I am finally leaving Dementorville and going back to the state that loves me...for good this time. You have no idea how excited I am about this.

Yes, North Carolina has grown on me and there are things that I will forever miss (like the awesome thunder storms and the warm rain...even if it does create the most awful humidity ever) but California is where I am meant to be. My family is there and I mean really...I was raised in Sonoma County, where the best wine in the country, possibly the world, is made. Northern California here I come. Plus, if I am really lucky, I will be living even farther north in CA where I will be the proud...dare I say it...OWNER...of an adorable condo. Ok I can't say it because it hasn't been finalized yet and I just about had a heart attack typing that one word. Dear God escrow must be the longest thing to wait through known to man!

Moving on...

Knowing that this trip was coming, I have been scouting for the perfect audiobooks to join me on this glorious drive. I finally decided on Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen, Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer, and Waiting for Columbus by Thomas Trofimuk. And yes, I took the picture of them surrounded by the boxes that are overtaking my apartment. I can't wait to start listening. We hit the road a week from Saturday!

Oh, goodie!!! Northern CA rocks! Dementorville doesn't sound very appealing...

Water for Elephants & Into Thin Air are great choices. Haven't read the other one.

Have a safe trip!
