It's been one year since our move to el OC. One whole year. This time last year, the excitement of moving to a new town/city/county was still in the air. Little did I know what a l-o-n-g summer with 3 kids at home would be like. I went through a little depression. I thought I would love being a whole lot closer to my famlilia, and I did (but it took some getting used to!). See, when my hubby and I got married, 12+ years ago, he took me to live in the city that I worked at so I wouldn't have to commute any where(I know, sweet huh?)
Well, we never moved out of that city. Not even out of the little apartment. If you have ever lived in the San Gabriel Valley, you know that its not like any other So Cal city to live in. I totally miss my neighbors! I do! Yes, they were Asians, but I learned to live with them and commute with them and shop with them so much, that one of the hardest thing to get used to here in el OC, is not having a Chinese Market close to me! Still, I make my monthly trips out there to buy groceries that I can't find here.
