The trip to L.A. was wonderful. It was cool by L.A. standards but compared to Seattle it was pure heaven. We walked everywere everywere, literally. Looking through neighborhoods gathering numbers and even bumping into an old landlord. The reality of what needs to happen to get from here to there hit home and boy is it a lot. The cats, finding a place for the two of us, new jobs. Everyone is saying how much more expensive it is down there compared to Seattle and while it is more expensive for some things overall I really think its going to be about the same. Rent is definately more and will be the bigger challenge. Time will go by quickly and before you know it I’ll be writing from there and bitching about how hot and sunny it is.
