For a few weeks I have been absent since DH and I have been planning and getting everything together for his new job. He has secretly been applying for positions and he got one of the first ones he applied. He had a few offers but he choice the one that he really wanted - in the High Desert! We're born/raised Michigan folk, turned Indiana for college, turned Illinois, turned Ohio, turned Virginia. Now we are going to move to the desert, an adventure! DH has been to our future destination however I have never been even close to the area (I'm beyond freaked and stressed). Our destination: Lancaster, California! It's about an hour or so to LA (supposedly). If you are from this area, or know it, please please please contact me! I would love to know someone from the area.
We have just about 2.5 weeks now until we move. So far we don't have movers and do not have a place to live. Oh no... haha It's hard to actually find a rental when one doesn't live in the same area. Apparently there are some people that scam others by saying they are from out-of-state or something like that so now some people require renters to come in person... bo boo... We're chugging along hoping for the best.
My excitement is for having warm weather just about all year around. I've heard it does get cold at night but in the day it's warm. This pretty much gives us free range all year around to run outside. (and not lose any fingers or toes) Yay!!!! Plus there are new routes and new moutains to adventure with hiking. I'm not sure of the safety for being outside but hoping for the best.
So, I'm in stressed out mode trying to get everything packed, finding movers that actually go to Lancaster, CA and a place to rent for the first year before we purchase again. We are keeping up our normal 1 hour of exercise but have reduced it to around 4-5 days a week seeing as we have to contact California people during our evenings which is the normal time for the gym. Hopefully after we can find a mover and find a rental, I will be back to posting normal again. So sorry for the lack of posts, I miss scheduling and posting everything on here for accountablity to lose those last pesky 20 lbs. I'll be back definitely after we get internet setup in our new place though for sure. For now it will be here and there as I can...
Anyone know Lancaster, CA? I would love to know anything!
