Yesterday, yours truly retired from her day job. Yep, I did.
Tomorrow, I move out of the town I have lived in since my third birthday, to a smaller town that snuggles up to the Sierra Nevada mountains.
Today, I ask myself what was I thinking? I am not a mountains kind of gal. I’m more of a beach bunny, Sun God worshiper, the “I only like to camp at the Hilton” kind of gal. I just happened to fall in love with a mountains kind of guy. Bottom line, I will go wherever he goes and he is going to the mountains. Who knows, maybe I will love it up there once I’m used to the elevation and the isolated winters. I heard someone talking about wearing snowshoes one year. Once I can get over worrying about our neighbors, I mean the non-human ones that live in the forest. The human ones I haven’t met yet, but Hubby assures me that they are OK. Many people have told me that once I settle in, I will LOVE it.
I hope they know what they are talking about.
The fact that there is only one grocery store for miles, is making me nervous. No Starbucks. No Wal-Mart in a 50 mile radius – maybe farther than that. Civilization, as I know it, is not up there.
THANK GOD THEY HAVE INTERNET SERVICE THERE. So I will be back on-line July 29th when they install it. I really suck at keyboarding on my iPhone, so I will spare us both the annoyance. If I take a cool picture of something I will try to post it for your amusement. This offer is not guaranteed, BTW.
Oh, sorry! I got side-tracked there for a minute. I belong to an email list that sends me a Positive Quote of the Day every morning. Today’s quote is:
“It’s time to start living the life you’ve imagined”
— Henry James
Wow! How did they know?
One thought on “The Day’s Quote”
Good luck to you! You never know, it might be nice being isolated from the rest of the world. Love that quote of the day- think I need to follow that!
