I have soo much I have to say that I am not even sure I can, I mean I know I can but I do not know if I really want to go back and do a years worth of recaps!! But I guess I can just do a fast and dirty version of what I have been through:
- Graduated college
- Hurricane Sandy beat up NJ
- The family has been doing well
- Lilian bought a new car, a Kia Serento
- The sister-in-law is now a nurse
- The wife now works in the corporate office of her job
- And I now live in San Jose, CA
Yes, I said I now live in San Jose, CA! We have been planning on this move for about three years now, and just this past July I made the move over. We packed my car and I drove from NJ to CA via route 80. It took me five days to complete my trip, I stopped four times along the way: Indiana, Nebraska, Wyoming and Nevada. I could have made it in four days but the wife found a super cheap room at Circus Circus in Reno and I just could not say no to staying in Reno!
It cost me about $305 in gas and about $210 in hotels. It also cost me a sore butt from all that driving lol! The drive was as smooth as anyone could have hoped for, only a small amount of traffic in Pennsylvania and a small bout of rain in Nebraska. Other than that it was smooth sailing.
Found a room to rent on the second day I was in CA and that has been home ever since. The only hard part about this adventure is that I miss everyone back home, I miss them tremendously. I underestimated how much I would miss everyone, but we knew this coming into this endeavor and I am not about to back down on what I came out here to do.
I have been out here for almost a month now and the job hunt is on! I have had two interviews and I have another one lined up this Friday. I have been applying to just about any place that I think my schooling and background fits, so wish me luck on the hunt for a job......no a hunt for a career!
I will be coming back as often as I can to post pictures, because I love posting pictures! Life is truly just the memories you make along the way, and I use a camera to help preserve them. And to end this post I think I will post a few of the ones I took on the ride over:
My last trip to double D's
This is pretty much what it looked like for 90% of the trip
And that is it for now, I will be back sometimes this week to continue breathing life into this place. So many fond memories at blogspot with so many more to come.
