I'm not used to the traffic.

So far I have rememebered...
Billboards in California are in English and Spanish.
A lot.
I can read Spanish.
Bc the English is right by it.
GENIUS.
Why couldn't my high school Spanish teacher have done that on our midterm???
Much more efficient when trying to translate.
It is still fall with all of the leaves on the trees.
beautiful.
There are more Mercedes Benz's.
And less escalades.
Almost no escalades.
It is odd to have an almost 4 year old, an almost 2 year old, and an almost newborn all at the same time.
A walking marvel is what I am.
at least to the people at the gas stations.
Or maybe the crazy lady with lots of kids.
I prefer goddess of children.
With little gems.
And it gets darker faster here.
I swear it does.
I showed Sean my short cut through Benicia to half moon bay.
It made me feel really smart:)
I like my old maps from my glove compartment better than the map on my iPhone.
At least until I need to know where my little blue dot is.
Sean told me i was old fashioned.
And I liked it:)
And then he told me I was cute.
I love him.
And I love that my kids can watch two different movies at the same time in our car.
Almost as much as the 25 mpg we got on our drive.
We only had to fill up once.
Once!
in 13 hours!!!
There is only one more stop we have to make before we roll up on the good old hmb Ryan residence.
TRES.
Glory be:)
***below is salt on the salt flats, not snow:)***





P.S. the traffic is suffocating here.
On a whole new level.
That I'm just not used to anymore.
Especially when max starts screaming.
That is all.
