Sometimes I get 'homesick' for Seattle. Since Michelle has been in Texas twice in the last two months, it has reminded me of, among other things, I have no friends here yet. And while, in general, I'm not the friendliest of people, I do sometimes get lonely for company that isn't just me and the cat. I was playing on the Kinect on Sunday and I couldn't help but think how much more fun it would have been if I were playing with someone. (Or maybe not since I was making a fool of myself running in place and jumping.) I haven't found good Indian food here yet. Or good Thai. Or good gluten-free pizza. I hate my job. I honestly feel like I'm floundering sometimes and I dream of going back to Seattle. But the job I had there is no more, and even if it was there I don't think I want to work for that boss or that other boss any longer. It would be nice to have my friends here. I miss Seattle's electricity. it was way cheaper there.
The good things about here: Closer to my sister. Swimming pool at my apartment. Cheaper rent. Own a car. Have a cat. (I could have done that in seattle I know). Six flags. lower cost of everything except electricity. HUGE apartment. HUGE BEAUTIFUL apartment. Cheaper than Seattle's was. Housekeeper, dishwasher, washer/dryer in unit. Seriously, people, those are beautiful things.
Unrelated to all this mumbling about being home sick, I have to find ways to cut expenses. I think after Sunday night's Big Love I'm cutting fancy cable. There's nothing ever on it I want to watch. It is pointless. I have netflix and a blockbuster card. I'll get it back when True Blood returns in the summer. :)
