Every once in a while I think about how much time I spend in this condo. Never going anywhere. Just enjoying my home and think well, heck, I could do that anywhere. I could move to someplace I've never been before like Alaska. Or some place remote and cheap. As long as Amazon could get there and the internet connection was speedy, that's all I need.
And then I remember my Goodwill store, Uwajimaya, the Mariners Diamond games! The Seattle library. 13 Coins. And those are just the places I frequent often. There's having a wonderful vet who doesn't need appointments and is open 7 days a week. And having the wonders of Seattle available easily, always. Oh and my pool and back up pools if something happens to mine. Again. And that's the tip of the iceberg.
I always planned to move to downtown Chicago next. When I landed here, I expected to be here 18 months, maybe 2 years and then move to Chicago for a couple of years. But, Seattle sunk its teeth in to me and even though I feel like I spend all of my time inside here, I'm so glad that 'here' is in Seattle. Sorry Alaska and Chicago. I don't think you are going to make the cut after all.
