Hello ladies & thank you to those who have checked in on me.  It's been extremely hectic to say the least, but I think the worst is over.  We are now in our new place & together again.  Antonio is starting to get his appetite back & my internal clock has now adjusted to east coast time.  I will admit, the days are flying by, I guess because I've lost 3 hours of my day.  Saying good-bye to my family was definitely hard, but it's more like "see you later."   My oldest nephew had a very difficult time with it & is still getting used to the idea that I'm not 3 blocks away anymore.

On a much brighter note; today was a beautiful day here in Richmond.  Being from Los Angeles, I have to tell you...I've never seen a sky as clear & as blue as the one I saw today.  Being surrounded by trees (sans the leaves) is very tranquil, makes you feel 1 with nature.  I've been here 11 days & so far I've liked everything I've seen (which is not much).  We are still unpacking a few things here & there, but the place is finally starting to feel like "our home."  The link you see below is where we live, & yes it is that nice.  I can't wait until I can use the gym & get back to wearing my size 6 pants.  I'll be in touch with everyone as soon as I have time to breathe.

Take care

This is what we now call home; www.belvedereapartments.com

Feb. 5, 2008 at 12:22 AM Hey there! Sounds like things are going good so far. It must be hard to move somewhere where you don't know anyone. I'm sure you'll make new friends soon. The culture shock moving from LA to VA must be pretty intense. I checked out the link to the apts., looks really nice.
