Monday, tomorrow, we are going back to Northern California! Yes, there is excitement. And there is a little fear. We have to find an apartment/condo/duplex/whatever to live in. There is not much in our price range in the rental market. So I am afraid we will be living in a pup tent in the next county.
The first couple of weeks or so we are back we are staying with a friend in Alameda. We will use her as a fine hotel and do our search. Then the later part of December we will house sit for a friend in Concord. She is having knee surgery and then will be in a rehab center. She has had us "house sit" before. When we moved in 2003 and couldn't get into our house for a couple of weeks, she took a trip and turned her condo over to us.
We are blessed with generous friends taking care of us.
I will let you know how the search goes. Keep your fingers crossed for us.
