From Fantasy To Reality

Ever get abruptly awakened from a really great dream? Ever have the rug pulled out from under you? Ever have a bucket of ice…? Okay, I think you get the picture.

But honestly, if you ever hear your husband say, ‘we need to downsize’ by all means brace yourself. Your life is about to change. Change in a colossal, dramatic way.

“I get that our house is upside down. Can’t we wait it out?” I asked.

“It’s too late for that. We need to move out,” he said. “I’ll find you a great house.”

“Can you try to find it in California, please?” Although, I’m sure I didn’t use the word please. I’m sure I used a ‘D’ word.

“Here’s an option I found nearby.” He handed me a flyer.

I must have gasped.

He frowned at me.

“A trailer park?”

“Let’s at least look at it,” he said.

Well, I would be able to stay local, I thought. How bad can it be?

  1. Life dishes up some interesting twists and turns. Have to keep our sense of humor or we just won’t get through.
