Changes Afoot

Goodbye apartment, hello home.

Goodbye rent, hello mortgage.

Goodbye crazy global travels, hello worrying about money for the mortgage payment. (Gah.)

Goodbye current corporate overlord, hello new corporate overlord.

(Which also means a sad goodbye friends, hello strangers who will hopefully be nice.)

Goodbye Texas, hello Colorado.

Goodbye old life, hello new life.

All in all, the lady and I are terrified and excited and apprehensive and jazzed and living the life of an emotional pendulum.

Goodbye apartment box-maze, hello home that can fit this much stuff

Dear Ellen,

I’ve been there! Well, maybe not that particular rock but other rocks. Really neat ones too. But you’ll have to take my word on that because I don’t have postcards of them.

Dear Ellen,

While this method of sorting mail proved effective, it was also unfortunately adopted by Texas as an outlook on life: “Texan,” or “Nope … Nope, Nope.”

Dear Ellen,

You want to know something that is not surprising? In Texas, when someone shoots (and sometimes kills) a home invader/crook breaking into the home … The News anchors state this with an almost amused tone.

(The funny/sad part is that if I’d said, say, Vermont, you’d read that and think ‘oh yikes!’ … But with Texas? Eh, seems right.)

Wildseed Farms

Recently the lady and I headed to the Texas hill country to admire the wildflowers before they disappear til next March. As part of this we drove to Wildseed Farms which grows the wildflowers, gets the seeds and then sells them. A very clever business idea because who would think to profit off of something that grows naturally? But what Texan can refuse buying some bluebonnet seeds?

Mid-Term Election Advice

I don’t know what things are like in your neck of the woods, but here in Texas a LOT of the candidates are really much more feng shui conscious than you’d think by looking at them. I swear, for every three ads on TV, two of those folks are concerned about borders.

Look, I live in an apartment, I’m not going to hang drapes, ok? You can rant and rave about borders all you want but I for one think my windows need no treatment.

Now, these Mexicans?

 

Joking aside, my sincere input: Educate yourself, vote, and be angry at politicians. Because half-truths shouldn’t be so acceptable.
