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!
