Greetings From California!

April 21, 2009

Well, it’s finally happened. I live in California now. The last 6 weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind. We got on an offer on the house, prayed it would go to closing, took care of all the stuff that selling a house entails, gave notice at work, had Mom help with the packers and movers, and moved in with a friend for two weeks until I flew out here. Crazy!

I’ve been out here for two and a half weeks already, but it has gone by very quickly. I’m still getting through boxes, we have about 20 left, but have already gone through about 100-110. Our house in California is smaller than our house in Maryland so we are finding lots of things to sell at a garage sale. We’re slowly settling in, but I’m hoping that 95% of the work will be done by May 1.

I haven’t had any time for crafting, though I’m hoping that will change soon. My craft studio is almost done and I’ve got lots of projects to work on. I want to find a knitting group and it looks like there are quite a few in the area. And I’m having a grand re-opening sale at my Etsy store in May so I need to get some things done for that.

I also have to find a job, which I will start doing very soon, but in the meantime, I’m keeping out of trouble.
