So, we’re here. We made it to Oklahoma City on October 1 and are getting settled in. Everything’s unpacked and now we’re just getting our bearings.
Everybody is VERY nice and helpful. I’m a bit green with the big city driving but I know that will come with time.
I’ve picked up a couple of new skills, too: I can now fix existing websites made with web design software like Dreamweaver so if you know anybody who had a web designer that bailed on them let me know because I can do that.
The other set of skills is pending. I got hired on at a big computer company doing a help desk project for a big airplane company so I’ll be doing some PT tech support. I’m just waiting for the start date next month.
In the mean time David and I are exploring our local area together which has been a lot of fun!
David seems to love his job, the kittens love the condo (the stairs are their favorite) but I definitely miss my cute little 5 year old house. This condo is older than we are so-yeah. It fits our needs, though, and the price was right.
Biggest difference between OKC and LR? The WIND! It is SO windy here! I am convinced THIS should be the windy city. OH, and people are really REALLY into football.
Overall, though, I think we will like it here.
Favorite restaurants so far:
- Jersey Mikes
- Pickerman’s Sandwiches
- Mediterranean Grill
- Swadley’s BBQ
Favorite grocery stores:
- Crest- so far our #1 favorite
- Homeland was nice inside but the deals were lack luster.
- GFF in Moore had some good deals but it’s busy, the produce was so-so-, and it’s pretty out of the way for us.
Change is hard…but sometimes a change is what we needed…
Have you ever been through a big move, or one that FELT big? Or do you know of a place in OKC that we need to check out? Let me know!
