I know I go all over the place with my rants on so many ridiculous things about California. I don’t take back any of those things, but I’m compelled to go on the record as saying that there are a lot of things I really like about living here. I’m still not-so-secretly hoping that we’ll settle in Seattle or anyplace less hot than here, but in the meantime I’m actually quite happy here.
I have the opportunity to make a little money while staying home with the boys. It’s very hard work and it’s not a lot of money, but it feels so good to befinally improving our family’s finances. It’ll be a while before we’ve undone all the damage that living here has caused, but just knowing we’re on the path is a very good thing.
We have amazing friends. While we’ve had good friends everywhere I feel like we have the best support networks (more than one!!!) here than anywhere. They are so uplifting and inspiring.
I think we’ve settled on the kindergarten program in which we will enroll Little Red, next year. I have to wait to do the school tour in September, when school starts up again but Jen and I are already planning on being the first two people on the list when enrollment opens in March.
There is so much going on these days, but LIFE IS GOOD.
