The process has been rough: packing, taking loads to my parents' temporary apartment (where they'll stay while their new house is being built), cleaning, and dealing with how to say goodbye to this place. It's a huge undertaking, and I'm exhausted. But the movers will be here tomorrow and the next day to take a few big items to my parents' new apartment and the rest to storage to await the new house.
Despite the sad prospect of saying goodbye this week, we're certainly taking advantage of all our city has to offer. Of course, I've lived in LA for the last ten years (holy smokes, time flies), but Fremont will always be a huge part of who I am. Here's what we've been up to the last few days:
Several long walks through our neighborhood and all the gorgeous hills around our house
(There's a chance that my turnout isn't what it used to be)
Hitting up our favorite restaurants in Fremont
Deeelicious Mexican--it even rivals the best places in LA! (I'm enjoying leftovers as I type this post)
Our favorite pizza spot, Mission Pizza
Hiking Mission Peak, a super popular hiking spot in Fremont
A lot of other people had the same idea...
Today, I met up with a friend from high school to discuss our ten year reunion (again, how am I already ten years out of high school?) at a restaurant in Pleasanton, Jim's Country Style Restaurant. I just mention it because it appears to be a typical diner but has truly fantastic omelets. I ordered the "Dustin" with bacon, avocado, Jack cheese, onions, and bell peppers. Most restaurants tend to be skimpy on the veggies, but this place LOADED my omelet--I swear there was an entire avocado in there!
Tonight's our last night in this house, so I'm off to sleep. Hope you have a good start to the week!
