We started this blog to document the 5 weeks when we moved from San Jose to Los Angeles in late 2005 when Sarah got a new job at LACMA. Now the blog is Gary & Sarah's experiences in Los Angeles. We can't say we're "new" to LA anymore... but some things are still foreign.

A work day at home
Last weekend we tried to get started on all the things we want to do with the new place. The first step for Sarah was painting the second bedroom or office. Gary decided to tear up the master closet and put in a more efficient closet system. We decided we wanted a brighter color in the second bedroom... it kinda ended up a little more yellow than we thought (even though it was one of the more mellow paint chips we had), but it has grown on us. Our clothes didn't fit into the standard closet... so we were at a decision point. We decided to not throw out clothes... and the new closet setup works well. Tearing out the old carpet in the closet was an added bonus.
