Here I am

I've been doing a lot of things since I moved. Some of them fun, others...not so much.

Unpacking - Not fun. Going through box after box that I felt like I'd just packed trying to figure out where everything was going to go was grueling. Eventually, one by one, the boxes were emptied and broken down. My place is now coming together...but there are still quite a few things left to hang and things without a home yet. Pictures will happen once I'm satisfied.

Sunshine - So much fun! I've been over to the pool at my brother and sister-in-law's house a couple of times and taken advantage of having a yard of my own. I love having a backyard, I can throw on a bikini, walk out my backdoor with a book and feel like I'm hidden away in a warm world of my own.

Bike riding/taking the bus - Meh.... I made a HUGE mistake and for my first bike ride in many, many, many years I decided to ride over 7 miles to my sister Kareen's house. It was horrible and not nearly as flat as I'd imagined in my head. I couldn't believe how much longer the roads seemed and to make matters worse my seat loosened up halfway through the ride and got so low I couldn't extend my legs and the seat kept swiveling. It took me an hour to get to her house and my bike is still out there until I can trick myself into believing the ride back won't be so bad.
Riding the bus has been surprisingly okay. Although it's quite a bit different than public transportation in Portland, it's also a lot less crowded so I never have to sit by someone and people generally leave me alone. However the buses don't run after 6:30pm...so hopefully I don't ever need to go anywhere at night.

Family - Fun! I had Claire and Abby over the other night to spend the night and they were just oh too cute. I should have just video'd the whole experience because some of the things they said and did are just not as cute when explained. Plus when they woke up in the morning I could hear them giggling for about 10 minutes before they finally came out. I have no idea what they were doing but it made me happy.

Work - Surprising. I've found myself with two jobs for the upcoming year. Both dance related and I'm so excited about both of them! I've only just begun with them but I think they'll keep me on my toes.
