One month down

Today is our one month anniversary in New York, and I celebrated in a memorable fashion-- I accepted a job and became a New York resident.

I start work Monday as a proofreader/writer for a language translating business in downtown Manhattan, near the World Trade Center site. I became a NY resident by finally getting a driver's license here. I have only a temporary license now-- the real one is sent in the mail, so I'm not sure how my photo turned out.

My mini celebration continued with some shopping in Park Slope and a piece of Oreo cheesecake at a Bay Ridge bakery.

I also stopped at a grocery store a couple of blocks away that I had never yet visited. And this might be the highlight of the day-- they have the small flour tortillas I've been searching for! Now I can go back to making quesadillas without rationing my dwindling supply.


  1. Congratulations, Diane! I'm excited that you found a new job. You'll have to let me know what you think of it after you get all settled.

  2. Wow Diane!!! Congratulations on the new job, that is awesome!

  3. Congratulations on finding those tortillas!!!

    And the job too... :) way to go!

  4. Congrats on the job-hope you like it!!!!!! LOVE YOU!!!!!!

  5. CONGRATS! I'm sure it will go well.

    I hope getting your NY license was easier and less beaurocratic than my getting my MD one! P.S. I made them show me my picture before I would accept it.
