We’re coming up on six months in SoCal. This six months has gone much faster than the six that preceded it. Living with one foot out the door, unable to make long term commitments, knowing we were going, was difficult.
People say moving is stressful. It is. No one does this for fun. There are advantages living in one place an extended length of time. Reestablishing a routine is tough.
I had to go to Santa Ana this afternoon. About 20 minutes away.
It was someplace new, but landmarks looked familiar. Some, like the Orange County Register’s building, I’d only seen from the freeway. I hardly needed the GPS on the way back.
So many things to learn. Where are the light switches in the dark? Who’s got good pizza (not easy here)? We must find a dentist.
We have no wired telephone. Contemporaries ask about that, wondering if it’s a switch they should make. Probably.
Does AT&T have a cell plan where I could add a second number to my HTC One? That would be great. I don’t want to give up my 203 number.
Do I need 949?
Does anyone care anymore?
