Well, daughter went back last evening, missing her and enjoying my solitude again equally. Almost looking forward to going to a job that I may or may not have tomorrow.
Oh, and Ugh, have to write a check to the IRS tomorrow too.

Broke down and got an iPhone to match my MacBook. Told Siri I love her. She said "I bet you say that to all your apple products. <sigh> she already knows me so well...

If money was not an issue, and you could live anywhere you wanted, where would it be?

Tahiti. Or somewhere on the Costa Azul, or Maui, or the French Riviera...a Greek Island. Any of them, all of them. <shrug>

Tell me about your new job. How much different will the commute be? Did you get an equivalent or better position? Will you have to travel at all or go on site ? Do you manage people or just systems?

I love raising my kids in NJ, but I'd like to travel with them more during the summers.

Thanks! I am enjoying it. It's a learning curve...on both of them. Took me all day to figure out how to sync the phone with the laptop/icloud/itunes/etc., but it's all good. I've been being all pretentious at people too with my laptop open reading at the coffee shop. I never do that. I just felt kind of drawn to doing it today. heh :D

...Might be nice to have a condo in Victoria, British Colombia, Canada.....A snowbird between here in south Florida and there......or possibly Paris/Munich, so we could stay there spring and summer and here, fall and winter.....

No where and everywhere. I'd check out a lot of different states and countries. I'd stay long enough (maybe a year?) to really get into the culture.

Earthquakes and volcanos here too. If Mt. Rainier blows, I'm pretty much toast unless I can get out by boat which I don't have even though I'm technically "on the water" about a minute from Puget Sound, so in the big scheme of it all <shrug>.:D

Yeah, this. I haven't lived enough places to say definitively where I'd like to live forever. Every place has pros and cons. I like warm weather, but I hate giant bugs. I hate winter, but I also hate super hot summers.

I would buy one of the mansions in Evanston that I can only drool at now as we drive by and then find a private island in the Caribbean or maybe a place on the beach in Costa Rica or Belize.
