On the Move

So, we're moving again. Back to California. Due to the fluctuation of the Canadian dollar in relation to the US dollar and the fact that all the visual effects work is headed back south, we are heading south too.

We got an apartment in the building in Pasadena we moved out of two years ago. I loved it there so all is good. We'll be renting the unit directly below our old apartment, which is a relief because I know the apartment layout and everything already.

The actual moving part will happen the second week of January. Right now we're in the packing and organizing phase. Yay, packing.

I will be sad to be moving away from Washington. I'll miss my little garden and having a house and the relative lack of traffic on the roads. Pixel will miss having a whole yard full of grass to eat and geese to watch out the window.

I feel like the past two years have been something of a detour from my nicely planned life and that I'm now returning to the main road. Or maybe it's something more akin to the Hero's Journey, and now that I've faced my challenges and battled through, I get to return home now, somewhat wiser than when I left.

For my fair-weather friends
