I'm new as of April 20th. But ABQ is not new to me. I moved here from the Seattle, WA area. I've had a family connection here for a long time, so I've visited here more times than I can count.

It's one of those situations where a personal tragedy pretty much caused me to have to move. Because I've liked it here so much in the past, I already know I'm never going back, unless it's to visit family. Just a few days ago I found myself wondering how in the world did I tolerate so many cloudy days in Seattle. I must have been out of my mind. I have a feeling I won't be living anywhere else from now on.

There's still a lot of things I need to fit into; still a lot that is new to me. But I like to explore, so I'll figure things out.

Right now as of this writing, I'm not "doing" anything in terms of job/career. My main highlights have been a small business owner, customer service manager, and office manager. In terms of what I'm going to do here for work, well... I'm working on that.

What do I like most about ABQ? Sunshine! That's a no-brainer.

What do I miss about where I left? I'd have to say, family. But that's what airlines and frequent flier miles are for.

I moved here 27 years ago from Northern Virginia. What do I miss? Nothing but the friends I had and most of them have moved away from Va.. One still lives there and I have contact with them.

What did I gain? Lots of sunny days and hot green chile!
