Whole food? Well, I ate a whole turkey sub for dinner, does that count? I know, eating out two nights in a row, but I couldn't help it: I was over in our old neighborhood in Arlington and I couldn't pass by my favorite deli ever without stopping to pick up some deliciousness. And it wasn't only deli produce that I found myself missing as my errands led me to have to drive through Arlington Heights three times in a 45-minute period. The area is also home to both the best barbershop and the best hardware store I've ever had the pleasure of patronizing, as well as just some great residential streets for pleasant strolls. Those hills I mentioned, like. It was a delightful place to live and, you know, I kind of miss it. In fact, I kind of miss everywhere I ever lived. Santa Monica had it's charms too: the obvious ones were the beach and the farmers marketóohh, the farmers marketóbut even more than that, just the feel of the place: it was home for a little while, so naturally I look back with a little bit of regret at having to leave.
On the other hand, I never really managed to take full advantage of living in Santa Monica, or even of Arlington Heights, so I can't complain too much. Plus, where we are here is pretty nice too. No complaints about it from me, that's for sure! So what am I moaning about? Well, it may be on account of reading through this whole blog from beginning to end and recalling all that fun stuff we did. We missed a blogging anniversary here, our three-year celebration, so in a late observation of that I'm gathering some stats on how we've done so far. It's interesting stuff, I promise! Interesting!!
