Real Life update

Good news: mrizh and I have a place to stay rent-free until our place is ready to move back into. :) I'm thanking God every day for that--it's a condo owned by his workplace, and it's pretty nice (although not as nice as our own home).

The one downside: it's in Calabasas, which is rather far away from my work and from the nerve centers of L.A.--Hollywood, downtown, etc. My commute is an hour each way, which is fine, but I'm having trouble figuring out exactly how much margin I need to give myself to compensate for the rush-hour freeway traffic... and thus, how early I need to get up, and how early I need to go to sleep so that I can actually make myself get up.

The past two days were a little unusual, though: Wednesday morning, I got out to my car and realized that the rain of the night before had frozen the doors shut. The was ice all over my car, and it took both me and my husband to get the doors open. I was late that day. :)

This morning, no rain, but a thick layer of frost. It's quite a novelty after living in L.A. for so long. Partly it's just the weather system currently moving through here, but I think Calabasas also has sharper temperature plunges. It's warmer in Burbank.

So: it's an adventure. Prayers are appreciated, that we may cope with grace.

(it could have been so much worse.)
