What We've Been Up To

I've been a bad blogger.  I know.  I'll give a quick rundown of what we've been up to, but the details and photos will have to come later!

In June we moved from Oklahoma to California with a short stop in Utah to see family.  Once in California we spent almost 3 weeks living in 3 different hotels while trying to find a place to live.  The cost of living out here is insane, and a lot of the rental places want to see that you have three times the monthly rent in income, which we don't have at this time.  I finally found the perfect house for us and had to convince the landlady that we were the perfect tenants regardless of our income.  We managed to convince her and got the house.

We moved in two weeks ago and I've been working at unpacking and organizing and getting rid of all the junk that's been sitting in storage for 2 years that I can't believe I packed in the first place.  It's been busy.  So once I have the house looking like I want, I'll post pictures of it.  If you really want to see it in all its messy glory, Anton posted pictures on his facebook.

My brain is not working right now, so I really can't think of anything else to say.  I'm know, I'm boring.  I'll try and be better about posting and even using pictures!  If anyone is out in the Bay Area anytime, drop me a line and we'll get together and play!

So glad you're still alive :) What a busy summer - no wonder we haven't heard from you much.

We might be in the Bay area around Christmas, that is if we can find a way to save enough money for a vacation. Adam's got the time off, but now that I'm not babysitting anymore, we have less money, but more activities to pay for (piano, baseball, swim lessons, etc).

Looking forward to the next update . . .
