There goes the neighborhood: The Glen Park edition


Yeah, so, we are getting settled in the new place.

We still have plenty of unpacking to do, but Homer has found his new favorite sunny spots, and the cable and DVR are setup so it feels like home to me. David is still setting up his office-type space, but I’m sure once he has got his drawing table setup the place will feel like home to him, too.

The move went really well, thanks for asking. We’re too old to lure friends and family over to help us move with promises of pizza and beer, so we hired movers this time. We used Golden Bay Relocation and they were awesome! I was seriously impressed with the amount of stuff they could carry. They are machines or something.

Since I’m knocked up, I couldn’t really help carry all our crap This, of course, was all part of my master plan. The only reason I got pregnant was so I could get out of helping with the move.

Big thanks to good buddies Kate, Corso and Jen for coming out and helping with the moving/unpacking. Super mad props to my mom who helped with the move and the unpacking and the Homer wrangling. She also braved unpacking the bathroom and didn’t even laugh out loud when she unpacked a box that contained condoms that obviously David and I never use.

We’ve been having a great time exploring Glen Park. Homer and I have been trying to nail down the perfect morning and evening walk. We haven’t seen any other dogs in our hood yet, which is good because Homer is a dick to other dogs. We also haven’t met any of the neighbors yet. I mean, I assume people live in the house across the street and it’s not a secret dildo factory like in our former hood. We had dinner at Chenery Park when we first looked at this house. We’ve had dinner at Le P’tit Laurent as well, and we had brunch at Tyger’s on Sunday. All tasty places that I’m sure we will be visiting again and again.

We went back to the old place on Monday to drop off the keys to the landlord and collect our deposit. It was sad to see the place all empty. We really loved that place. We had an amazing time there, and I really hope the new tenants love it as much as we did.

Also, I really miss the ice maker.

And it’s much cooler in our new place compared to the old place. I’m going to need to buy a bathrobe.

Obviously, this robe would look better on me. I’d look strong enough to pull the ears off a gundark.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. I’m surprised you haven’t bumped into any dogs yet. They’re everywhere. If you haven’t yet, go check out Glen Canyon (not the park, but keep going and you’ll find the trails/canyon in the back). Go without Homer, though, because there are tons of dogs.

  2. Glen Park rules! Glad friends are moving in…class the place up.
