I'm back from my exploratory trip to Sacramento. When most of us think of California, we think of San Diego, Hollywood or San Francisco. Sometimes Palm Springs, Napa/Sonoma, or even Yosemite. Rarely does anyone say "Hey, I'm heading to Sacramento for the weekend!"
Well, I did. It was foggy, cloudy, rainy and cold. Reminds me of Tacoma/Puyallup minus the elephant ears and the fair. Honestly, the area that we will be living in is very suburban so I am preparing myself for the adjustment. I've come the conclusion that I can do city dwelling or country living. The 'burbs is like a rash and there may not be enough caladryl.
The Fella and I spent a lot of "us" time which was just awesome. We did some exploring, even heading to the Wells Fargo History Museum in old Sacramento which is really a corner office packed full of information about Wells Fargo and the gold rush. On my to-do/visit list is definitely The Crocker and the State History Museum. And, I am looking forward to taking the Amtrak to San Jose. Yes, I am a total nerd.
My countdown at work is continuing. 2.5 weeks left and my position isn't posted, my boss hasn't selected a potential candidate from the pile he has already interviewed, and the work continues to pile up. But the best part is that I am no longer feeling guilty. I am no where close to making headway packing, I need to find a moving company and buy bubble wrap. Not to mention sell off the furniture. Luckily, a few items have been claimed but are still residing at Casa Ingomar for another few weeks.
Yes, I am sad to leave Houston. But I am excited for the new path I plan to take. On my horizon, I see school and travel.Oh yes, I guess I better fit some work in there too.
