I made it!
It’s gorgeous, and I feel so at home already.
Sorry about the lack of posting the past few days, but I’ve been trying to get settled down here. In other words, trying to find a place to live, get a car (I never ended up buying one when I was in D.C. during the spring!), and get acquainted with my new office. For those of you who may be curious, I didn’t get a new job- I still work with the military, but just out of my company’s San Diego office now.
Yoga pants = good luck.
My furniture and boxes will be arriving this week, so I’m relieved to have an apartment all squared away.
My parents are also in town helping me getting everything settled since I don’t have any time off from work during this transition, so obviously we celebrated with my favorite thing in the world post-lease signing on Saturday.
That spread is from the Broken Yolk downtown, a local breakfast restaurant chain here in San Diego. It was pretty good and reminded me of Another Broken Egg in northwest Florida, which I used to be obsessed with back when I was traveling to Florida every few weeks. My multigrain pancakes were definitely celebration meal status.
Honestly, finding a good breakfast joint is what makes me feel at home in any new place. Is that weird?
Anyways, I feel instantly at ease now that I know there’s places for some decent pancakes around town (outside of my kitchen, that is).
I’ve been pretty pooped from scrambling around and sleeping in a hotel, but I’m trying to stay on track with my half training plan! I’ll post later this week about how my long run went over the weekend.
Okay, time to get to work! Happy Monday!
What makes you feel at home in a new place? Besides a breakfast place, it’s finding a solid running trail/path in my neighborhood.
