Yesterday, yours truly retired from her day job. Yep, I did.
Tomorrow, I move out of the town I have lived in since my third birthday, to a smaller town that snuggles up to the Sierra Nevada mountains.
Today, I ask myself what was I thinking? I am not a mountains kind of gal. I’m more of a beach bunny, Sun God worshiper, the “I only like to camp at the Hilton” kind of gal. I just happened to fall in love with a mountains kind of guy. Bottom line, I will go wherever he goes and he is going to the mountains. Who knows, maybe I will love it up there once I’m used to the elevation and the isolated winters. I heard someone talking about wearing snowshoes one year. Once I can get over worrying about our neighbors, I mean the non-human ones that live in the forest. The human ones I haven’t met yet, but Hubby assures me that they are OK. Many people have told me that once I settle in, I will LOVE it.
I hope they know what they are talking about.
The fact that there is only one grocery store for miles, is making me nervous. No Starbucks. No Wal-Mart in a 50 mile radius – maybe farther than that. Civilization, as I know it, is not up there.
THANK GOD THEY HAVE INTERNET SERVICE THERE. So I will be back on-line July 29th when they install it. I really suck at keyboarding on my iPhone, so I will spare us both the annoyance. If I take a cool picture of something I will try to post it for your amusement. This offer is not guaranteed, BTW.
Oh, sorry! I got side-tracked there for a minute. I belong to an email list that sends me a Positive Quote of the Day every morning. Today’s quote is:
“It’s time to start living the life you’ve imagined”
— Henry James
Wow! How did they know?
