Homeward Bound

So, the process has begun for kitten and I to begin our new life together back in New England. Let me fill you in if you don’t already know. And if you did know, that’s just kinda creepy. Stop stalking me.

I was born and raised in Massachusetts. Lived there 51 years of my life. All over the place. Mostly Natick, MA. Lived in Concord, Marlborough, Malden, Framingham. Until one fateful night back in early 2018 I came across online the most beautiful face I had ever seen, My kitten of course. Had to talk to her. No matter what the outcome would be. Well, that outcome became me moving to California in October 2018 and marrying her February of 2019. I think it worked out beyond quite well.

Well, after 2 and a half years here, kitten and I have decided to pack up, sell the house and move to New England. Probably New Hampshire, possibly Massachusetts. Where ever we can find just the right home for us. Don’t get me wrong, I have grown to love Northern California. I have met some unforgettable people in my time here. But after a few years of wildfire evacuations and also the cost of living compared to back East? It’s time for a change. Well, it won’t be much of a shock to me, but my little one is a native Californian and has never been to New Hampshire and has spent only a quick week in Mass. It’s going to be a big wonderful change for her. I honestly have no fears that she won’t fall in love with it.

There will certainly be an adjustment for her weather wise for sure. Winters back East can be harsh, cruel and long. Luckily, she doesn’t have to leave the house for work, and it’s a Hell of an excuse to buy lots more fur!! (You may want to read my Fur Fetish post..lol)

Besides a better cost of living in general, we will also be close to my brother and sister who I haven’t seen since I’ve been out West. And they haven’t met my wife yet. Looking forward to that big time.

There are so many little things I have missed being out here that I look forward to seeing/doing when we get back East. A Red Sox game at Fenway. A stroll with kitten through Faneuil Hall, a trip over to Boston’s North End (slice of Regina’s pizza of course), picnic at the South Natick waterfall, A Casey’s hot dog, maybe a Pops concert in the Summer out at Tanglewood. I have so many things I want to show her from my life from before we met. Hope they bring as much joy to her as they did me all those years. Can’t wait to take her up north and show her the Mount Washington Valley area. Spent many a day hiking, climbing, canoeing and shopping around there.

Well, the move is going to happen this Summer sometime. As soon as humanly possible. I’m really looking forward to this new chapter of our life together.

Thanks for tuning in. Have a great day all

Year One..

Sitting here reflecting early this morning.Next month will mark my first anniversary as a California resident. I spent the first 51 years of my life as a Massachusetts native growing up 18 miles west of Boston. I moved to California without a second thought, without hesitation simply to be with the woman I love and always will…It wasn’t even a question. I had to be with her no matter where that path lead me to.

I have really grown to love it here, but not going to say there aren’t things I am still getting used to and still learning. Driving for example is a world apart from Massachusetts driving for sure!! Not saying better or worse, but different. lol…People a a little different here, not as much as I thought, but I have run into some real characters here. NOT that I didn’t run with some real characters back east..No comment..I guess there are good people and jackoffs no matter where you roam…

Honestly? The only thing I was concerned with about moving here, having had some bad experiences when I spent time in Northern California in the early 90’s, was that I would nevah have a decent pizza again…Sigh…Well thanks to my lovely and brilliant wife…A native…I have been proven wrong on a few occasions!! Phew! Thank God for that!! hahaha…

Overall, things have balanced out…Some cost of living things in California are a little…Um…shocking…But other things here balance that out for sure…

Yes, I do miss a hand full of little things from my place of birth, but I will never have regrets about my move. I mean come on…I came to be with kitten…Hell, she could have lived on Mars and I would have hopped a rocket and taken alien lessons….
