Wow. I honestly feel like I’ve been hit by a semi-truck right now.
I guess that’s to be expected given the past four days have been the most insane of my entire life but wow, I need rest.
Adam is being brave and letting me use his truck while he’s at work (muhahah), so this morning we grabbed some breakfast before I dropped him off at the office. This could possibly have been the largest breakfast I’ve ever been served:
It was a greek omelet with feta and spinach that came with hash browns and toast…..and some interesting little pink pom-pom sticking out of the eggs. Interesting. I ate about half the omelet and 1 piece of toast…..this could have fed a family of six.
I find it humorous that I am driving around northern california in a truck with texas plates, not knowing where I’m going at all….I feel so far from home right now!
I LOVED the apartment though that I looked at 9:30 and hopefully will be signing the lease in a few days. The location is absolutely perfect and it’s very “me”….it’s a very, very large studio apartment on the top floor of a really old victorian home in downtown healdsburg. It has a ton of character and potential, now I just need furniture!
I totally crashed at about 10:30 this morning. I pulled back on my sweatpants and sweatshirt and slept for almost three hours. I thought I would wake up feeling better but unfortunately, I feel worse! Moving is very emotionally and physically draining! I feel like I need to sleep for about a week straight to be caught up and the next couple weeks are just going to be totally crazy as well. I’ll be drinking a ton of this for sure—-
When I rejoined the land of the living around 2:00 this afternoon, I decided to make myself relatively useful and go grocery shopping for dinner ingredients since I told the guys I would make something fabulous tonight (oh the joy of temporarily living with boys). I plugged the address to Trader Joes into the truck gps and set on my way!
First though, I stopped at Starbucks for some nourishment and got a chocolate banana vivanno with a shot of espresso:
I LOVE TJS!!!! Seriously, this might be one of the best things about moving to California. How have I lived so long without this store??! Everything is healthy and so CHEAP! I couldn’t believe it. I got a huge bag of honeycrisp apples for only $3.50, when at home like two apples would be double that amount. Amazing. Also got some almond butter, yogurt and puffins. Necessities indeed. I’m going to make my chicken enchiladas for dinner….boys love these!
I think I’ve done enough exploring for one day. About to change into jeans and plug away at some emails and freelance projects for a few hours. Thank you all so much for bearing with me during this weird transition stage….hopefully by this time next week things will be relatively back to normal. I just need to get my car, get my apartment and get settled. I hate living out of suitcases and having to rely on others for rides!
