I'm Back

OK, this is just for me now. I look back at my posts and see how great some of them were and it really got me going that I need a place to vent/express myself. Seeing how "blogging" is so O-V-E-R I figure no one will read this so I can really let go.

It's been almost six years since we moved to Minnesota. There are things I miss about living in Los Angeles. There are things I love about living here. There are some other things I don't like about living here, mostly the commute in snow in winter and the humidity/bugs in summer. I don't like being away from my family. I do love we get to go back for two weeks every year. I'm OK with my current job but know I could love the possibilities. I wish Don was happier/more secure in his. I don't want to move again -- unless it's back to California.

We're all going well. The dogs have adjusted and handle the colder weather and snow fine. In fact, the autumn break really gives them the zoomies, where they can spend the majority of the days outside enjoying the mild temps. Jager loves her gas-powered fireplace when the temps dip. Baja loves crunching through the fallen leaves.

October is hard for me. It's when I left my old life in LA for a new one in MN. There is a melancholy in what could have been. If 9-11 hadn't happened which resulted in the travel industry tanking or the NFL closing the LA office, we'd still be the happy family on Truxton, We're still a happy family, it's just several hundred miles away.

    I just read this tonight. If it makes you feel any better, I know what you mean! I miss Minnesota like crazy. I miss the career opportunities of working at the HO as opposed to remote (hire a remote to a professional position?!!? No, they're only good for phones! Bah!). I miss lakes, trees, and tall buildings being in the same city. Most of my family is here or scattered, so other than my niece and sister in law, the family thing isn't a big deal, but my friends sure are! I miss all of you so much it hurts.

    There are things I love about Champaign; the community of friends my husband has had all his life, our church, his family here, our big ranch home that we could have never afforded in the city...

    I guess mostly it's work. I'm getting burned out on the phones and I wish I could convince people that remote agents can be productive team members in a professional capacity. OK, now I've vented as well. Miss you!
