These are the questions that keep me up at night these days. Not really. Lydia and Stella do a pretty good job of that most of the time. But I do wonder whether moving at this juncture in my life will make me turn inward a bit
more. Certainly, not knowing too many people here makes staying home a more attractive option than it used to be. Living in an actual home, instead of a tiny apartment, also has that effect. And my desire to really settle in, fix things up, etc, also moves me in a crafty, or nesting mode instead of a go-introduce-myself-to-strangers or mill-around-town mood most of the time. It doesn't help that there's not all that much to do here other than thrift shop. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy thrift shopping more than the average person probably, but I need to get into another routine - like going for hikes, or something.
All this is to say that I've been kind of withdrawn lately. Not in an unhappy way necessarily, but a reflective, and sometimes lonely one.
I'll sign off with two hilarious pieces of the Internet that were sent my way recently:
- Signs You're a San Francisco Parent (guilty as charged to numbers 3, 7, 9, 18, etc etc)
- It's Like They Know Us (I laughed aloud, repeatedly)
