Checking In

It has been a while since I last posted.  Much has gone on and I have no idea where to start! 

Currently, we are living in a hotel.  That is fun and not so fun.  I don't have to clean, but I also don't have much choice on what we eat and being an organic family this is certainly not ideal.  The suite itself is very large and that is a blessing with 2 young boys running here and there! 

You can imagine we are house hunting as no one plans to live in a hotel long term.  We have found a couple of options, but one in particular we are putting an offer on, today in fact.  This home spoke to us in so many ways it started to become comical.  Please send out positive energy, as we just want a smooth transaction without hiccups or interference.

Our car has been in the shop to repair an electrical issue.  As I am excited to fix this problem, it has taken all of this week to do so and I am still without my car.  They promise today, but truly I am getting a little suspicious with their estimates. 

We are actually hanging out at my parents' while the car is being fixed and that has been okay.  The boys are running around outside at will which makes me happy.  We miss our daddy though.

Next week our series of summer camps start.  Car better be fixed!  The boys will learn proper baseball and enjoy a theater camp, while mommy does some consulting work.  Then we all join a smaller group for a nature camp.  Really looking forward to all of the activity and we are enjoying a lovely summer. 

Hope the next post is regarding our new home that we will be moving in and that our offer was accepted!

Going "HOME"?

We are here, Ohio that is.  Finally the drive is over, (21 hours) and the movers unloaded all of our belongings.  Huge feat and ordeal that is thankfully, behind us!

Weather is cooler than anticipated, so we are digging out our long sleeves and pants, but V is super excited because he loves wearing those kind of clothes.  After all, he was born in Fall in Northeast Ohio, so seasonally, he is in heaven when he wears fall type clothing.

Settling and organizing this week, so I am prepared for house hunting next week.  Many options to choose from, in terms of buying, renting, location, style, size etc.  What a great time to buy a house actually.

Without going into all the details of the move thus far, we are happy to be in one place, happy to reconnect with some family and friends and are excited to find a new home, one that includes the following very important items that were sorely missed while living in Florida:

Back Yard - for digging and finding worms
Front Porch
No shared walls!!!!
The hunt begins!
