how god killed plan A

Okay peeps…it’ll take too long to relate the past four months in detail, so here is a summarized timeline.

-June…was a cool month.  school ended, and i got to visit the fam down in soCal.

-July…pretty boring, except for the 4th.

-August…began as another tedious working month, until i got the idea to travel to london in the fall.  that idea soon unraveled into an opportunity to LIVE in london, which i snagged with almost no hesitation.

-September…very, very interesting month.  the 1st was my fly-out-of-the-county date.  I flew out of seattle that night, and arrived in london on the 2nd, only to be sent back 12 hours later. (shoot me an email for details).  so, plan A was shot down, and poor summer was without an au pair.  problem was, i didn’t have a plan B, mainly because i am naïve and sometimes idealistic.  so here i am, back in seattle 48 hours after i tried to escape.  i have some very gracious friends who offered to take me in, and i stayed with them for 5 days.

now, guess where i am.  try.

you got it.

the very place i’ve been trying to avoid ever since i fled**. 

the place i grew up in.  the dry, dusty, deserty, windy, two-seasony, joshua-tree-prolificacy, dirty, hick-y,….ugh.  hesperia, ca.  the place where riding your dirt bike is the THING to do on weekends.  don’t get me wrong; i love my friends and family, but….hesperia.  why??

God really has a sense of humor, folks.  So, stay tuned as i develop a plan B.


** well, not really…try “evaded”…hmm, actually, that doesn’t work, either.  i did move away to school, where i discovered much better places.  let’s leave it at that.

    then come up and stay with me for a week while you look for a job in p town.
    that, my dear, is plan D
    however, i might move, which is my plan b.
    okay, gotta get back to my homework so i can pass my classes and accomplish plan a.

    bloggy indeed.
    i’m finding hardly anything down here in the way of jobs. i’m craving portland. so, if you stay there, we might be able to accomplish plan D 😉
