it’s been a year.
i still haven’t changed the address on my license. i still don’t really know my way around (aside from my little bubble of a neighborhood). i still haven’t made any friends.
just the other day i was driving home from work looking around at the cows, fruit stands, and corn fields and thought “how did i get here? is this real life?”.
i’m still acclimating. i’ve discovered since moving to the valley…
that i hate driving. getting out of the valley just takes too long and too much effort.
in the valley, when farmers till their farms, it kicks up dirt/allergens that stay in the bubble of the valley and make my face puffy and i sneeze.
my body was not made to withstand the heat of the valley. 100 degrees? no please.
life in the suburbs is slow.
hard to find good food. i still haven’t found it. the only restaurant i love to eat it is a sushi restaurant that we frequent on date nights.
it gets so cold i had to buy a winter coat.
it gets so cold i get to cuddle up by the fireplace.
i still haven’t been to yosemite.
i haven’t gotten any produce from a fruit stand. if you see one that takes cards let me know.
i still love going to farmers markets on saturdays. especialy ones that have bacon on a stick.
i still want a goat and a duck.
we still haven’t put pictures on the wall or decorated. i just cant choose which ones to put up.
i’ve never gone wine tasting. i don’t know if that’s a valley thing but there are lots of wineries around here.
i’m getting better at cooking. probably because we don’t have cool restaurants to eat out at.
i love having a puppy and living with adam. even if he snores. and she digs up our backyard.
the list of things grows. eventually i will figure out life here and make friends and do things. but for now i have my routine and i’ve been putting a lot of time and effort into organizing/making the house look pretty 🙂
