San Diego, here I come!

 (photo from www.vroomvroomvroom.com)

Lately, my posts have been infrequent at best.  I wish I had some new art to show you but I've been spending what little spare time I have sorting things to give away...  You see, I've decided to move back to San Diego this summer!

I am super excited to be going back - I miss all my friends so much and I will even be returning to my old job.  My bosses and coworkers in San Diego are awesome people and dear friends so it's going to be really nice to get to work with them again.

In the meantime, I am trying to pare down all my stuff to the bare minimum.  I'm getting rid of all my "big" clothes - so I won't even be tempted to let any of those old pounds climb back on!  Lots of extra shoes, videos, old computer equipment, linens, craft supplies, and most of my furniture.  I still have tons to do and I know the next two months will fly by - I'm planning to move over Memorial Day Weekend at the end of May.

The most important thing still to do is find an apartment! For those of you who are in the area, let me know if you've got any good leads  =)

I am so excited for you to move to SD. I know you will be so happy there. Lucky you that you are getting rid of all your "big" clothes. I just got rid of all of my "small" clothes. Six garbage bags full. We are having a clothing drive at work for abused woman who need professional clothing. So I felt this was the perfect time to clean out my closet. My closet looks so bare now. I have gained back all the weight I had lost. With all my health problems the last 14 months, I just spent too much time emotionaly eating. It is amazing how long it takes to lose and how quickly you gain it back. Good luck with your move.

I lived in Monterey for a year but never made it south to San Diego -- how exiting! And what an amazing photograph!
