Another month gone by already ...

Time is doing strange things to Mary's head these days. In a way, it seems like Jeff and I have lived a lifetime already since we've been here, because so much has happened over the past 3 months. To think we have only lived here for 3 months is rather mind-boggling.

That's not to say we feel like we have the complete "lay of the land" yet. We still have to read the subway maps (not all the time, though--some of it is committed to memory now). We still haven't mastered grocery shopping, although we're getting a bit better at it. We don't dress like New Yorkers and aren't sure we ever will, mostly because the words "chic" and "Jeff and Mary" will never appear together except in this sentence.

We have come a long way since March 1, but this place still doesn't feel like home, at least to Mary. Not sure what will make it feel like home, either. Maybe just the passage of some more time ...
