hello lovely friends. I’ve missed you.
We are finally in our new home city (we arrived in Seattle on Saturday from San Diego) and trying to acclimate to even shorter days, lower temps, the fact that a little snow falling from the sky is miraculous only to us, and hotel living.

By tomorrow night we will have been living in one of three hotels for a solid week. While I like travel and don’t much mind sleeping in strange beds, it is wearing a bit thin not to have my own stuff around me and to not have the opportunity to eat home cookin.

Meanwhile, we have an apartment near downtown Seattle and an appointment to have movers transport some of our stuff (as we are going from a 2700 square foot house to a 795 square foot apartment) from the PODS storage site to said apartment on Saturday.

I can’t wait. It’s more than a bit challenging to try to feel like a new place is home when living out of suitcases and opening a door with a card key. Oh, and no mail!! I love snail mail so much and I’ve been denied for almost a full week. Ack!
