Today, I received the keys to my condo. I am officially a homeowner. It freaks me out a little bit. I don’t really want to be a grown up, but meine Schwester kept insisting this was a good idea. What have I gotten myself into? I am very excited, but it really is kind of a scary feeling.

I’ve told my manager that I did it so that it would be harder for me to pack up my stuff and leave in two years, since that has been my MO. It is sort of true. I did think that I could just move back to the east coast after living out here for two years. I was so wrong. I really am a California girl at heart. I blame my grandmother.

One night, Meme and I were sitting up late talking after having helped Great Grandmother. Meme told me about when she and Bumpa had gotten married. They didn’t want to wait for him to get out of the Army, so she went down to Little Rock, AK where he was stationed and got married there. I guess Great Grandmother never let her live down eloping with her only child. Well, it seems that Meme wanted to move to California when Bumpa got out of the Army, but Bumpa wanted to go back home. Guess who won out?

So I feel it is my duty to Meme, to have packed all my worldly belongings, and move to California. I’m doing it for you, Meme. And I’m doing it for me. I really do love it out here. Of course, if Meme and Bumpa had moved to California, it is possible that I never would have been born…
