So, if you hadn't assumed already,we've made it safely to Oregon.
It feels like Australia was another lifetime ago.
It's cold, but not as cold as NYC and since it's January my brain accepts the cold much better than it was accepting the warmth of an Aussie summer.
We've settled in as much as we can here in Oregon while we wait for our renters to move out of our San Francisco house.
I've allowed to begin decorating again. Very exciting.
We adopted kittens. They're part of the settling down phase we've decided needed to happen. They will come with us down to Cali when we move.
And we bought cars.
Not sure I like having to drive to get everywhere. I much prefer the walk/train/ferry/cab to wherever I need to go. The only time it's nice to have a car is when you buy a lot of shit and can't possibly carry it all home by yourself.
Also, we live out in the country and it takes 10 minutes to even get into "town". AND no one delivers. This could definitely be a contributing factor to my missing big city life. "What do you mean I can't get wine delivered to my house at 10pm on a Sunday?"
But nevertheless, all in all life is good.
And it's good to be back.
