Okay this post has nothing to do with the metro at all, it’s just there isn’t much to do when you are stuck on the train and you don’t want to drain the battery on your phone in case you need it for an emergency of some kind. Like a ride home because the train has been sitting at the station for the last 15 minutes.
We are going on year three in the DC metro area and I haven’t met with any of my blogging friends in the area. I’ve accidentally ran into Mrs. Fergie at a Dance Moms Meet & Greet no doubt. And I attended a back-to-school event at the park with Tech Mom when I first arrived. But that’s it. That’s a little pathetic. One of the reasons we choose DC was because I actually knew several people here. I think I saw them all more when I lived in California.
We are going on year three and we still have not gone to New York, Philly, Outer Banks or any of the other places you should visit while you live on the East Coast. If I’m missing any other “must see” places let me know.
We are going on year three and I’m still not used to the weather. We did have a mild summer this year so I can’t complain. But I am dreading the winter and possible polar vortex to come. I guess I need to invest in some winter clothing.
We are going on year three and I still scream when I find one of those GINORMOUS East Coast breading bugs in my house. I still can see the eyes of that Wolf Spider we saw perched on the walls of a stairwell last year.
We are going on year three and I’m more “allergic” to nature then I was in California. So much so that the kids have adopted my “I’m allergic to nature mantra.” Perhaps I’ll hire someone to take them camping one day to get the re-acclimated. Me on the other hand, I’ve accepted my allergy and will embrace it as much as you can embrace embellished allergy.
We are going on three years without superbly awesome Chinese food, Korean BBQ, Wood Ranch BBQ, Liquor availability wherever you shop on any day you decide to shop, In n Out (The Hubs missing more than I ever will), restaurant sushi (I’ve actually gotten pretty good at whipping up some Tempura Shrimp rolls), Denny’s, close proximity to Las Vegas and San Diego and of course year-around neutral weather.
