And it’s not that I want to go back to LA. no, I’m liking it here. I just want to go back to a routine! Our routine me and the kids had. You see, Adrian is out of school and no daycare or summer camp yet, Maya doesn’t have daycare yet either and us 3 hang out all day at home or at the park or run errands. I’m not used to it!
I know we will have a routine soon but I’m so impatient and I want to get things done. I still have several boxes lying around and my to-do list is growing and growing. But all in all I don’t want to make a post of complaints, I really just want to let you all know how we are adjusting.
The kids have amazed me, they are adjusted from day 1. Adrian is really excited to be here, maybe he really loves changes. And Maya, she was sleeping in our room in her little playpen before we moved and now she sleeps in the room with Adrian and in the big crib. I was afraid she would complain or wake up a lot or something, but no, she slept through the night since the first night and went to bed nicely without any big fuzz. She has been so good!
We are all so happy to be together 24/7 and not have to share only the weekends with Derek (He was coming up to LA during the weekends only for 8 months!), he loves coming home and having the kids run up to him every night. I think the only one that needs more getting-used-to time is me! But I am enjoying and taking it all in little by little.
I love to have this feeling of wanting to explore around the city, what’s close-by and what’s far too. I love to get lost sometimes and discover streets and places. I also can’t help to compare many things between places, like I do miss my shower but I can get used to this one quick. The walking distance from the car to the apartment is longer and something I have to get used to, but I will cause it’s so nice!
I miss things that I had no idea I would, like our washer and dryer. We have a set here but they seem so old school to me, we used to have an HE set and I now know that I love them! Hey, I did the laundry in 3 loads, now I need 6 loads! And the amount of water the non HE use!! OMG! Ok, I wont complain more, at least I have them and they are veeeeery useful!
One great thing that I wasn’t expecting is that there is recycling here! Yay! I thought there wasn’t but we do have!
And the best best best thing I’m enjoying about San Diego is the weather! Oh my! Lovely! It’s been hot the last couple of days but it’s still so fresh! I find that we are outdoors more than we used to in LA, that is such a good thing, I’m loving it.
To finish my crazy all-over-the-place post, I still want to show you advances in decorating our place, it makes me nervous to show but that’s why I want to do it, it will help me to keep up (cause many times I don’t with decorating) and I think you might enjoy it as well plus we can get inspired together. Poke me if I don’t si?
PS: I will be back later with Maya’s Monthly picture! We had a busy weekend with my mom and sister visiting so I still need to take the picture!
Estamos todos contentos de estar todos juntos todos los días de la semana y no sólo por los fines de semana (Derek estuvo yendo y viniendo a LA sólo por los fines de semana durante 8 meses!). A Derek le encanta regresar del trabajo y que los niños corran a abrazarlo todas las noches. Yo creo que a la que todavía le falta tiempo de acostumbrarse es a mi! Pero yo estoy disfrutando mucho y absorbiendo todo poco a poco.
Me encanta sentir como una emoción por explorar todo lo que hay en la ciudad, desde lo más cercano y común hasta lo más lejano y poco común. Me gusta perderme a veces a propósito y descubrir calles y lugares. Y no puedo dejar de comparar cositas tontas entre la casa donde vivíamos y el apartamento como por ejempli si extraño a mi ducha pero se que me podré acostumbrar a la nueva facilmente, la distancia que camino del carro al apartamento es mucho mayor pero es tan lindo aquí que me acostumbraré!
Para terminar mi post largo y medio desordenado les quiero decir que si les quiero enseñar avances de la decoración del apartamento, me pone nerviosa saber que les enseñaré avances pero por eso mismo lo quiero hacer, creo que me ayudará a seguirlo y no dejarlo sin decorar (como muchas veces hago) y a uds probablemente les guste y nos inspiramos mutuamente si? Me fastidian si ven que pasa mucho tiempo y no les comparto!
