Goodbye and Hello.

So, we've left Washington and are now in California.  Not in my own home yet, but we're working on it.  In the mean time, a little goodbye and hello....

* goodbye pine trees...hello palm trees (but really, there's more scrub oaks than anything).

* goodbye rain...hello sun.

* goodbye green...hello brown.

* goodbye being in the racial majority...hello being in the racial minority

* goodbye no state income tax...hello state income tax.

* goodbye people-who-accepted-my-family-of-7...hello people-freaking-out-about-my-family-of-7.

* goodbye expensive housing...hello ridiculously expensive housing.

* goodbye known...hello unknown.
