From underemployed bohemian….

9 Jul

To suburban stay-at-home-mom.

It will be official beginning next week. I’ll be a suburban housewife. We’re moving to a more residential area where we’ll have a cooler, larger place. We’ll be able to walk outdoors in any direction in the evenings without having to worry about gangs. We can park our car in a garage; grill, hang laundry to dry and plant stuff in a small backyard.

Right now I’m experiencing greater culture shock than when I moved from Japan to the States. Not only will I be farther away from the ocean (I feel my pores drying and cracking with just the thought of moving further inland!) but it’ll be the first time since 1993 where I won’t be within walking distance to a cool cafe.

Good thing that I’m trying to save money by drinking java at home!

    Aha…so *you’re* the reason Starbucks is shutting down so many, eh?? 😉 I’m so excited for you – I hope you post some pictures!

    Wow yet another big change for you!! And moving away from the ocean? Is there at least a creek, lake, river, or fountains near by? They do help with the withdrawal.
