It's Better to Read the Book

Have you ever read a book that was totally engaging? So engaging that you couldn't wait to finish it because you knew the best part was the last chapter? Yet those last six chapters or so seemed sooo long because all you really wanted to do was skip ahead and read the last chapter. But you didn't because for one you kind of liked the momentum, and two you knew that would be cheating and you'd miss some key parts of the story. While it's been a long time since I've read a book that good, I sort of feel that way right now.

I am finishing up chapters of my life here in Redlands. I am anticipating the last chapter that will read "Farah moved to Santa Maria at the end of July to find that all her dreams came true. Sequel of her life to follow." But no, I'm still on the last six chapters or so of my life. Here's a quick synopsis on the last six chapters of "Fauf's Life in Redlands":

Chapter 12: Fauf's job at her church office ends. She begins to say god-byes at church.

Chapter 13: The Neverland House closes. Fauf packs up her teaching materials and turns in her keys belonging to her classroom. She anticipates re-opening the Neverland House at a new school in SM. (featured in the sequel)

Chapter 14: Fauf and her fantastic roomie-to-be check out their amazing-fireplace-included home. They are very excited about taking up residence there soon...but not yet.

Chapter 15: Fauf makes a few visits to SM which is feeling more and more like home, but again...not yet.

Chapter 16: Fauf begins daydreaming of her future fantastic life in SM where she can see Michael whenever she wants because a distance of no more than 20 miles will separate them. (Cingular, your days of romance domination are numbered!)

Chapter 17: the last chapter of Fauf's life in Redlands. Sorry, but I can't give away the ending!
