Well, the California economy is horrible. Sadly, our jobs are either non-existent at the moment or not up to par. While I'm grateful to even be employed, this is definitely not my dream job, and we've decided to move back to the D.C. area. Now before jumping to conclusions and thinking we haven't given this beautiful city a fair shot, here's a few things to remember:
- Moving to San Francisco was never meant to be permanent. It was great destination point after a long road trip. We both wanted to move to California while we had the opportunity and no strings attached. I like to think of it as an extended vacation with jobs involved.
- I will miss this area more than anything. I may be too old to say this, but I have rediscovered traits about myself that I thought were long gone. Do you ever feel like you're watching a TV show of yourself because life is so routine? I'm out of the daze and actually living it. For that, I am indebted to this city.
- We're excited to take the second cross-country road trip in one year. There's new cities on the route, old cities to stop by and a thanksgiving dinner waiting at the other end.
- We leave the first of November, so we'll be showcasing the interior of our car since that'll be home across the road and posting amazing pictures of our pit stops. After that, 2010 will be so exciting. There's a dog involved this summer, our first house (hopefully), and that Southern wedding we've been planning all year!
