Tuesday Tidbits

  1. We're here NC! We arrived on Saturday and spent Sunday moving into our corporate apartment which we will be staying in for the next month.  It's very nice and in a great area with local shops in walking distance so it's a pretty nice set up. Wilson is adjusting well and is already loving his daily walks.
  2. I am still on the job hunt but am hopeful something pans out soon. In the meantime, I am trying to enjoy the time off and maybe tackle some small tasks in the interim.
  3. The weather is pretty sweet right now. It gets chilly in the evenings but the highs this week are in the 60s and may reach 70 tomorrow, which is a pretty good way to settle in to our new surroundings.
  4. It's tough not having all of our stuff with us. We have just what we needed to get by for the next month but I miss my bed and our furniture already. It's good to "rough it" now and then though. :)
  5. Walmarts and Targets are hidden gems around here. There are only 2 or 3 of them each within a 20 mile radius...so unlike having them everywhere in Florida. We are on the hunt for one of them today and maybe some house hunting as well.
That's pretty much what's been happening these last few days. My car should arrive sometime this week and then I can do some more exploring as Brian starts work tomorrow. Time for some coffee....McDonald's is walking distance away. So blessed :)

Glad you're getting settled! A month will fly by and you'll be a more comfortable home before you know it!

The area and temps sound heavenly. Did you scout out some running routes?

Sounds like you're settling in. Have fun exploring!

Erin-no running routes yet, although some neighborhoods we checked looked promising.
