Welllllllllll, things don't quite work like that here. We are assigned three trash cans, one for trash, one for recyclables and one for yard stuff (leaves, tree branches and stuff like that), and if your trash doesn't fit in those cans, well then it just isn't going to be leaving your house. On top of that, we only have ONE trash day a week. Yes, even the week of Christmas when you have all that wrapping paper, all those boxes and all those turkey bones that you just can not stand to smell for one. more. freakin'. second.
I am trying to learn to be a cooperative Californian, but what in the world do people do when they move here and they have a house full of boxes, packing paper and bubble wrap??
Well, here is what we did. We piled the boxes in our back yard and every week we would put as many as could fit in the recycling can and then we would roll it out to the curb on Wednesday like all of the other compliant residents of this fine state.
........and, this went on for precisely 5 months!
I am happy and so proud to announce that as of this Wednesday we are officially done with our pile of boxes!!!!! After 5 ridiculous months of having to try to fold a wardrobe box into an origami swan, we have finally succeeded in getting rid of all of them.
Please, try not to be jealous of my life!

Who in their right mind would let their day to day life be filmed and then honestly believe that we are all wishing our lives where like theirs???? I may love watching the show, but mostly because watching someone else's train wreck of a life makes my boring life feel really, Reeaaaaaally good.
Please tell me that you caught it last week when Alexis went to the races with Gretchen. That entire scene at the table had me thanking my lucky stars for the man I am married to. If Alexis' husband said one more time how "OUR rule" is that we only judge by "OUR experiences" I was going to reach through the screen and slap his cocky, know it all, not very attractive self. If he is really all that (and he clearly thinks he is) why did he have to lie to his wife about Gretchen's friend coming on to him just so he could watch his wife have a lunatic moment?? Run Alexis, RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN. Yes, he may be rich and he may love to buy you trinkets NOW, but any woman who feels that she has to edit herself around her husband, tell her husband how right he is when he is being a know it all, or who feels that she has to look perfect around her husband is only asking for trouble. Shouldn't your hubby be the one who ALWAYS has YOUR back, who thinks you look perfect in the morning when you haven't brushed your teeth or hair, or when you have baby throw up all over your pajamas.....and it's 3:00 in the afternoon???
Keep these shows coming BRAVO TV......I love 'em! And just so you "Housewives" know, I don't envy you, I don't want your life nor do I want to be you.....but I do find you crazy fun to watch!

On the positive side, our weatherman is getting a lot of airtime and I can't help but be cheered up every single time I see his name on my TV screen....Dallas Raines! What a great name for a meteorologist! Seriously, that is like a handyman being named Rusty Nail or a dentist named Dr Payne. Gotta love irony!

Okay....so that's one for California
Then you have the weather which is comical to even bring up since we all know how much nicer the weather is in California. However, you do have the freakish weather phenomenons that can't be overlooked........
The Texas Tornado vs The California Earthquake
Neither are really the way I am hoping to meet my maker.
I will admit that I don't hate it here as much as I thought I would. I don't love it....but I am learning to appreciate it's good points.
Now, if you will excuse me, I have to get on with selling everything I own so that I can fit in my new version of "home sweet home".
