We're back!

We have had one hell of a past two weeks. First school started for the girls. Then, on the second day of school, we finally closed on our house. The third day of school started the move into our new house. We finished moving out in 5 days. Boxes were everywhere in the new house with no organization. The day after we turned over the keys of the old house, Zelda and the girls flew to New York for her cousin's wedding. I stayed to work the rest of the week at the clinic and to organize the new house as much as I could. Three days later, I flew to New York City. You can read about it at Zelda's site.

But, we are back now. We have a ton of things to do. We met our neighbor while we were moving in. She's a Korean lady who spoke with an accent, "Oh! I'm so glad to see we have a good neighbor! We have been praying to God to please not send teenagers or college students to rent the place. The last neighbors were college students and would party every weekend. They climb over the fence and smoke in my backyard. We had to call police all the time!"

There's a lot of work to be done. It seems as if the previous kids that rented the place before the owners decided to sell it, did much damage to it.

The first major repair we'll do after we sort everything out is to tile the kitchen and bathrooms and put bamboo floors in the living and dining room.

I haven't decided what to do after that, but I should be able to blog more frequently with updates.
