Now in Florida

It's nice to be in Florida; but it's taking a little getting adjusted to.

There's the heat, for one.  Right now, it's in the 60s; but reports have it at a scary mid-80's next week.

My parents and I are still unpacking; and there is minor chaos in finding things as we need them.

The produce is fresh!  I can live with that!

Currently, I'm a part-time waitress, doing evenings in a restaurant.  Tips are good; but I'm on my feet a lot.  Hopefully, I can move up to something else in the near future.  Being on one's feet for so long is not easy.  I'm looking at a barmaid opening tomorrow.

I tried on my two-piece swimsuit.  The results were not pretty.  I have a ways to go. 

The sleeping late is a bad habit that needs breaking!

Florida Banana Oil

Seeing that I'm in between jobs, and Mom and Dad have recently retired to Florida, I've decided to have a change of latitude and attitude.  (Too much Jimmy Buffet, IMO.)  Anyway, they're looking at Fort Myers, and they invited me to live down there with them until I decide to get my own place.

I've just about had it with the cold.  Coping with North Dakota can be nerve-racking, and just the desire for a more relaxed life is a sizeable draw.

I'll probably have to be casually employed for a while; but this seems like a good move despite the fact that ND has this sudden boom economy.  It's a quality of life thing.
