I am really getting pumped about moving to Albuquerque. The landlord that we found is kind and considerate, and willing to work with us in the time-frame that we require - not to mention the fact that we aren't even paying a pet deposit. Between the three of us humans we have quite the menagerie following us around.

Other than the views from the house, which are incredible, I think the thing I'm most excited about is the pool table in the game room. I've gotten really rusty over the last couple of years but I seriously love to shoot pool. Back in high school and my early 20s I would hustle suckers who'd take one look at me and go, there's no way SHE can play worth anything. Of course, back then I hustled for alcohol, so now I'll have to think of something better to bet for.

Another great thing about this house is the location. It's in a canyon at the foot of the Sandias, on five acres right next to the National Park. There's a trail from my yard going into the wilderness, and I plan on taking my puppydog exploring every day. But then it's only a five minute drive into the city, fifteen minutes to hit downtown. Perfect combination of rural living plus city accessibility, and I'm stoked.

I'm going to miss the weather of Pecos, and of course the pine forests and having the river so accessible. But I'll make good friends with the Rio Grande, I'm sure.

Can't wait to immerse myself in you, Albuquerque. This has been something I've been working towards for two decades.

You will love it, I came here on vacation, the idea was to go on to northern Cali, never left, now I rarely leave the north valley, dogs, ditches, donkeys, llamas, chickens, sausages, breweries, horses, it is all good, welcome!
