So, today (or yesterday, by the time you guys read this) was the exact middle of the year. 183 days in. 183 days out. And so it occurred to me to reflect on everything that has happened thus far. Really, not that much has happened. It's just that the one thing that did happen was HUGE. Namely: We relocated. And not just anywhere. To New York City. And within a month's time. I'm sure other things have happened, but everything is sort of overshadowed by the big move.
But six months into the year and four months into our NY stint, things are still pretty good here (although you can make your own assumptions about work from the fact that I refuse to blog about it). But I'm thankful we're both working. Our apartment is serving us well. I've accommodated to no kitchen drawers. I just tell myself the perk of a small kitchen is that I can reach everything I need when cooking. The walk to work is getting hot and sweaty, so I'm looking forward to fall already. But I tell myself I can just sweat off some extra pounds. We just visited a church for a second time, and we plan to continue for a few weeks and see how it goes. We haven't had a lot of luck making friends up here yet, but we're hopeful that will come with building a church family. We've mastered the art of having dinner delivered to work, although we try not to do this too often. But I still think a Chick-fil-a here would make my NY experience complete.
Speaking of Chick-fil-a, I'm trying to contain my excitement of eating there this weekend when we travel down to Scott's parents' for the holiday. No. 1 combo, here I come. God Bless Chick-fil-a! Uh, I mean, America...
