And yes, The Kron is what we're now officially calling Akron.
And surprisingly, I went in with an upbeat attitude - we had some areas of Akron to check out that sounded fun and exciting. I thought it was going to be fine. I kept telling myself it was going to be fine.
And, predictably, I HATED it. Seriously, I cried. I am a pathetic girl.
But, looking back, I think it was more of a reaction to the stress I'm feeling about finding a job for one year, the thought of uprooting my life, basically putting my plans on hold for a year, so my husband can take this fabulously exciting, important, logical-to-his-career, ridiculously prestigious job. One of the areas we looked at was really cute, and I'm excited to find a cute little apartment there. But... I'm still nervous. I mean, the people in Akron could hate me, and I'd have no friends for a year.
On a good note, though, while flipping radio stations on the way back to Toledo today, I stopped on what I thought was Baby Got Back. But NO. It was.... Baby Got Book.
