Most of you are well aware of my quest to leave the dark and damp Northwest and get myself to living in a warm weather place. I have many reasons for this and the warm sun is only a part of this dream, although a big part. The other two main reasons are a lower cost of living and overall lifestyle.
Southern California is a place that my husband and I love to visit. We have been there at least 9 times over the last 15 years. We love Disneyland, the coast, the desert, the weather. We are even planning on purchasing a second home in Palm Springs this year. There are actually quite a few companies that my husband could work for in the L.A. area. So what's the issue? Why wouldn't we consider moving to California?
Well... being as I am a big believer in the idea that freedom and common sense really do belong together, it's time for me to come out and say that even if California could somehow come down to earth with its cost of living, I would never actually be able to live there as a permanent resident.
Allow me to explain. If you would kindly click on this link: http://santamonica.patch.com/articles/supervisors-no-frisbees-on-county-beaches-26a4fef2 and try to get through the entire article without dying of laughter, I think you'll understand.
Turns out I like Frisbees and footballs year round and I can't even imagine having to bring a measuring device into my next sand digging expedition! Californians, I love ya, but you need to get real...
