I made it to Florida on Friday afternoon. As advertised it is very sunny and warm and humid. So far I really like it. My apartment is super nice, and apparently close to the National Training Center. I have not been able to start there, because I have not started my job yet. In general I like to be sure the job is going to be OK before I sign up for anything that involves no refunds. 🙂
As always I am given someone specific to contact for Cable and internet connection, and as always they are not available when I call them. I do think 10 am on a Monday is not an inappropriate time. I’m giving the gal an hour and then I am calling directly. I may not even wait for the full hour. 😦 While the apartment complex has internet for us in the clubhouse (where I am) it is not the same as being able to browse and chat on line…I tend to think of the internet center as more for getting things done like directions and stuff, they have wireless, but the reception girls are not really sure of what the password is for the wireless, so since I would still have to be in the clubhouse, i am just waiting.
Still I am astounded, there is a palm tree right beside my apartment.
People do seem to be overly interested in cars. My Mazda Protoge looks so humble in the parking lot that is full of lexus, Jags, and all variety of expensive SUV’s. As humble as it looks, its pretty much paid for, so I can feel somewhat smug about that!!! Even on the highways, everyone seems to be in a brand new car. I wonder if thats the Florida culture or if I am just missing something.
Teulu is enjoying exploring the entire area. Since he no longer has any sort of yard, he and I are walking 1.5-2.5 hours a day. I’m running as well, so each night I pretty much fall asleep not missing TV or snything else.
So, alls well for the moment.
