When you put new paint on things, when you wash the windows. When you seal those old holes the former owners put in the stucco, or make sure the grass is edged cleanly along the driveway lines.
You have a favorite pizza place, know where to get the best produce and who to call for appliance repair. You’ve moved things in the kitchen a few times, reorganized, optimized, made it better and easier to use.
What lanes to be in on the drive into work.
What time of day is best to take a walk.
You’re OK. You’re growing roots. You’re looking back less. You’re almost here.
