It’s been almost a year since my last post and lots of things have happened so bear with me. I’m really, really going to try to write regularly this time, even if I have nothing to say.
I thought I’d start with things I’ve learned in the past year.
1. It gets hot in New England, really hot. The difference is the length of hot time is much shorter than in Texas. Also, because I live without A/C at home and at work, I’ve realized that it wasn’t the heat that was so bad. It was the constant moving between inferno outside and freezer inside. The differences in outside and inside temps here are not as great.
2. There are great white sharks on Cape Cod, just like the movie! I thought Hollywood was making that up but it’s true, and there are more and more each year because grey seals are protected from humans but not sharks. It’s a win – win for the sharks.
3. I’m over the Canada Goose situation. Just like Boston drivers, they do whatever they want, whenever they want and they honk a LOT. We all have to get along.
4. I’m convinced that all the food in America that is within days of expiration is sent to the Fresh Pond Whole Foods.
5. I didn’t know how much anxiety about driving was lurking under the surface until I moved here. They say it’s normal.
6. I LOVE the beach. I already knew that but how lucky am I that I get to go whenever I want!
7. There is some sort of animal that lives in the garage and poops on my car. I thought of of installing a camera but do I really want to see that?
8. I LOVE my job.
9. It’s hard to make friends when you’re 40 something with no kids.
