Last night, I was trying to mentally go back to summer 2002 when I first moved to Iowa from North Dakota. I wanted to remember the feeling I had...the feeling of not knowing anything about my current environment.
You know, the things you take for granted once you have lived somewhere for a good six months, like, where to get a hair cut, where to find a Target/Kmart type store, which grocery store is the best fit, where to buy a quick outfit when you don't want to go to a mall...that sort of thing.
Today's quest...I need a hair cut. I should have gotten a hair cut in North Dakota but I just didn't want to...I should have since I had tons of time on my hands, but now I am left in Pennsylvania with a shaggy do and no idea where to get a trim. Wish me luck.
As for the putting away task, I am doing well. I have the living room, kitchen, and bedroom in order. The second bedroom and bathroom are a bit of a shamble. Storage is the issue. My linen closet has one shelf designated for actual linens and the rest has pots, pans, and appliances that I rarely use...like a waffle iron. But do I get rid of the waffle iron? We sometimes like to have waffles! Ugh, the dilemma!
I will be taking a daily trip to the library until I get the internet or a job...which ever comes first...to check my email, do my searching for answers like the haircut, and writing this blog.
