Let us take note that although The Dizzle is quite capable of making three grown women laugh heartily for the camera, little River was not amused at all in our little photo sesh. However, it seems quite apparent that Mishi here (shown in photo #4) has no problem at all in making that sweet babe smile. ;)
I currently only have a bed sitting in the middle of a half-painted room, but that didn't stop us from having a grand ol' time. Jamie and Vicki brought a little San Diego into my life this weekend, and it was just what I needed. Except now that they're gone, I'm feeling even more homesick than I did before. Guess that means I'll just have to schedule a trip to San Diego sometime this summer, now doesn't it?
I wonder how long it takes for a new city to feel like "home"? One month? Six? A year? The Dizzle seems to think that once we get "our routine" started, it'll be easier to adjust. I'm inclined to agree with him.
Speaking of routines...I'm starting a very important one today: My new job!
I'm excited. Very excited. Part of me thought I would have a slight feeling of dread when the time came to jump back in to a full-time job after having the luxury of traveling the world for six months, but dread is definitely not one of my emotions. I guess that's a good sign I held out for the right fit?
So far, anyway.
I've decided that I am going to actively embrace my new "home." I'm going to give this San Francisco thing a real shot. No half-assing it. I think I had slight hesitations for awhile, especially when we didn't have a place of our own. But now, I'm eager to get to know our new neighborhood. I'm excited to learn the "knowledge of the locals".
A new home, a new city, a new job, a new man (kiiiiidding! Love you, Boo). I think this is going to be a great year. No, I know it'll be a great year, because I'm determined to make it one. So, boom. There's a little motivation for your Monday. Go out and make it a great one, ya hear? :)
