I love Yuma

O.K. so here it is, a Saturday night and I am sitting in the business center of the hotel blogging.

This trip has been awesome, and I am so glad that I made this trip! Everyday Rusty has kissed me and thanked me for coming with him. These sales are a big job and he truly appreciates the help that I give him. Spending time with the love of my life and knowing that my simple act of helping, means so much to him, is just another way for me to show Rusty how much I love him.

Tonight Rusty and I were driving around and I must say that I think Yuma is beautiful. Rusty use to come here when he was a boy and he has nothing but fond memories, and he loved showing me around.

There is something magical about a desert community. I love the desert, the Spanish influence and the sunsets here can take your breath away. I would be happy to live here.

While Rusty and I were driving around something very strange hit me. I remember my mom saying that she hated Yuma and that it was a hell hole. Yet, here I am loving this little town.

This past year has been very hard on mine and my mothers relationship. My mother has even cancelled her tickets, so she won't be coming out for Christmas.

You know, everyone has a right to be happy and to live their lives. That is what I am going to continue to do. I will not allow her to suck the life out of me, I will not allow her to say negative things, and most of all I will not be forced to have a relationship with someone that I have no desire to have a relationship with.

This is my life. I choose happiness and love. Tomorrow we will leave Yuma and go back home, and then it is back to my life.

Sounds like an awesome trip. I love small out of the way towns.
I've told Paul our next house is going to be out in the middle of nowhere nearby a small town where everyone knows you.

I had a feeling the Christmas visit wasn't going to happen.(Hugs)Indigo

It's always good to get away. Glad it was a good trip and that some soul searching was done.

I think any town can be beautiful if life is good for you there. Glad you enjoyed your trip with Rusty. I have gone past the outskirts of Yuma a number of times on the highway but never went right through it. But I find a lot these towns in Arizona to be pleasant and welcoming. Sorry about your on again off again Mom, canceling her trip. Not a lot you can count on there, it seems. but you have created a good life for you and your kids and your husband despite it. So you have risen above whatever unpleasantness she has caused. And that's progress! Gerry
