The Journey Begins

We find ourselves living in Southern California and as expected, things did not go smoothly. Although we did not have a perfect beginning, we persevered and made it through the day, unscathed! We were forced to overpay for my heavy luggage, then we had to deal with some hiccups at the rental company, which we were able to finally figure out. Everything got back on track when we had to decide between two apartments, but things quickly took a turn for the worst when I returned to our chosen place of residence without the sheets that I purchased. I have control over my OCD, but there is no way I can sleep on someone else’s sheets. We drove back to the store and I retrieved my sheets; not before they checked the surveillance cameras to determine that I was not, in fact, a big fat liar! (What ever happened to the honor system?)

The most important fact is that our first month’s rent is paid and we have a safe place to live. We’ve already met some great people, including Dave, an actor who is up for an Academy Award. (It’s truly exciting that he wants to keep in touch and work together in the future!)

Now that we decided on where to live, it is time for us to tackle our unemployment problem. Hopefully, we will be done with the job search by the end of next week! (If not, it’s to the off ramps we go; someone has to sell those oranges!)

After landing, we were famished and decided to dine at Panda Express. Pretty decent food! Here is a picture from the parking lot. I love living near the mountains!


     Tomorrow will be a new day; hopefully we will wake up refreshed and ready to watch the Broncos defeat the Steelers. We are still on East Coast time, it’s only 10pm, but to me, it feels like 1am. The most difficult aspect of the time change is the fact that tomorrow’s big playoff game will start at 1:30pm, locally. (I just hope we wake up in time!)

On January 8th, 2012, the world will witness the best edition of Tebow Time, to date! Everyone is familiar with Tebow Time, but for me, it’s Sleep Time!

Thank you to everyone who has supported our big move; we truly appreciate the love! I’ll keep the updates coming!!!

First and foremost, I enjoy writing stories. I recently completed my first novel, and I successfully co-wrote a short film script, which won the grand prize in the words made easy competition.

  1. You should post some pics of the apartment and the neighborhood…Oh, by the way…the SNL curse is alive and well. The Broncos haven’t won since the Jesus skit and Tebow is on a downward spiral. He just can’t shake it! I am rooting for them to somehow take down the Steelers..It would be another fun, drama filled event if Tebow comes to Foxboro next week!
