First, let me address my cryptic post recently about being in San Francisco. I was barely getting settled in NY when I had to take off to SF for a week of training with my new job. I had fully intended to sit down that evening in the hotel and write up a big My New Life Thus Far post but I wimped out and made up some nonsense instead. My apologies to all.
So. I’ve been in the Big Apple for just over 2 months now. We’ve gotten all settled in and there are no more boxes sitting around. It’s kinda late right now, but remind me to post some pics of our apartment after the movers delivered all the boxes filled with our junk. Holy Moley.
I think about our life and friends and family that we left in Mississippi and I miss it all so. Fortunately, we like it here too and it balances out pretty well. But, Lord, is it cold.
We packed everything up as best we could and let the movers do the rest. It was weird to sit in our empty trailer after living there for 7 years.
We caught a last football game (and the Dawgs won!).
Then we rented a car and started our 3 day trip to NY.
We stopped in at the Natural Bridge.
I managed to snap a quick pic as we crossed the Mason-Dixon Line. Goodbye South.
We stopped at Hersey, Pennsylvania and tried not to spend too much money on chocolate.
I drove across Manhattan and over the Manhattan Bridge. Regardless of this photo, I was completely sober.
The next day, all our junk was delivered.
This is right outside our door looking up towards Prospect Park.
We live 4 blocks from Prospect Park.
This is our neighborhood, Park Slope, Brooklyn.
We took a carriage ride in Central Park. The horse decided to leave without the driver, who is taking the picture.
We’ve already had the first big snow storm though I’m not sure if we got any pictures. We also had visitors from Mississippi which was fun. Now the new year is upon us and we look forward to what it will bring. Personally, I’m hoping for less siren noise.
