Lessons on Living (Pt. 2)

So, I've noticed a few things since moving here to Sacramento...here's another one.

Fog and Rain and Moss.

I've only lived in Southern California and in during the Winter months, Southern California doesn't have a lot of weather change. It remains mostly the same.


since moving to Sacramento I've experience my first Northern California winter. It's nothing like Colorado, but I have noticed a few things. Like IT'S COLD! It's rainy! It's foggy!

When I mean cold, I mean it's really cold. I got rid of a lot of jackets and coats because I didn't think I needed them. But I was way wrong. It's wet and always damp. The sidewalks are even turning green from the moss and moisture.

Word to the wise. If you come visit me in the near future, make sure to bring a rain coat, umbrella, and scarf and you'll be glad you did!

Lessons on Living

Since moving here I have learned a few things. I decided to devote some of my next blogging posts to these new lessons. I hope you enjoy.

Yesterday marks my 5 month anniversary to moving to California. Thus the idea. Dang, time has flown by. Speaking of flown, I have flown more on an airplane since moving to Sacramento than in my total years living in Denver. That either shows I have no friends or am becoming more adventurous.

You can take your pick.


Lesson 1. CRV tax.

Wtf? Why do I have to pay $1-$1.20 extra for a case of D.C. D.C.=Diet Coke. Here I think I'm getting a good deal at Safeway for the "buy 2 get 1 free" deal. It's NOT a deal when I have to pay this tax...per case. Grrrr. Maybe it's a subtle way of hinting that I shouldn't be drinking D.C. But sometimes a girl just needs one, you know?
