I still miss the city life. But I also appreciate the giant yard we have and the lack of traffic. We live on a dirt road. We never have to sit in traffic, unless we drive to a bigger town. Compared to spending hours on the 405 or 5 or 22 FWY, it's a blessing. Everywhere you live has pros and cons. I guess I want the best of both worlds.
It looks like soon I'll have a ride to Rancho Cucamunga fairly regularly, at least until Feb. Then I'll have a ride into town more often if I need to visit a craft store. I've really missed having a local craft store. The Lucerne Market carries a few items if I get in a pinch, but it's no Michael's. Of course if I get a ride to town, I won't get a ride home for 4 or 5 hours. But I can take my knitting or a sketchbook or a journal or a book. I'm good at entertaining myself. In fact sometimes I get more done if I'm not at home.

Every day I'm frustrated because I feel like I should be doing more with my life. It's almost 2 AM and I'm blogging, mainly because I haven't written anything all day.
