I was gone. For a while. I kinda have a lot to talk about, at least in my brain. Pretty sure it will be more than one post.
This. This is just where I am.
I had been busy the past month or so, not only with the holidays, but also with moving.
Yes. I moved. To another state.
Those of you familiar with the DC area will realize that it was not as significant of a move as it sounds. Really, only about 40 miles.
Maryland to Virginia.
I feel dirty for crossing the river. But I did it. You remember the talk about my commute? Well, now it is 15 minutes.
The downside is that my rent is higher and I have to pay for utilities. Utilities! What?! First time in almost five years. I have no idea how much it will be. Very scary. I like to live within my budget. Like hardcore.
I also would like to get a new car, TV, and bedroom furniture. And Christmas gifts.
MONEY! I MISS YOU!
But really, so far I am happy with the move. It has only been a few weeks, so things could go downhill. I don’t think they will, though.
Another thing about moving? I totally purged myself of most things that I do not need and moved the rest of it into a very clean new place. A place that I want to keep clean. I am going to try and establish a chore schedule. Some based on my mom – laundry on Mondays, sheets on Friday… then some other stuff like floors and dusting. Making my bed.
I think maintaining a clean adult type abode will be good for me. And only time will tell on how good of a move becoming a Virginian will be for me.
