Since the weather has turned to true spring, I’ve been getting out of my apartment at least a few times per day. Sometimes I’ll sit outside and listen to the birds and watch the squirrels. A few times this spring I had Jimmy John’s delivery and had makeshift picnics. I still don’t drive much simply because I don’t have to, especially since I can do most of my shopping and socializing online or over the phone. But I’ll drive my car at least once a day just to make sure everything is running all right.
I renewed the lease on my apartment for another year just in case the move out of state doesn’t come through. The big hang up is whether my parents can get their acreage sold. Right now they are baby sitting their grandkids for the next several days and looking over a few places in person. I wouldn’t mind moving to a larger city as I have always wanted to live in a city at least once. I’ve lived in villages and small towns my entire life. I’m not as in love with rural living as most of my family and classmates from high school. I would love to see what the world has to offer. Being in spring has me hopeful and thinking about the future.
