|We sold our minivan in Egypt so it was time for an upgrade! We now have a Blu-ray player/game screen! We are ready for road trips!|
|Of course we needed to rejoin Costco! The samples alone make a great lunch.|
We just sold our home in New Mexico. I was a little sad that we didn't need to go back there to sell it since I would have loved to see friends and family. We are hoping to move into a new home next month. It will be so nice to have a yard again, a nice kitchen and our things from Egypt and New Mexico. We are downsizing from our past 3 homes. I look forward to getting rid of stuff that we don't need. We are currently living out of suitcases and besides buying a few extra things, we have been fine. I like less stuff because it is less to care for and it takes up less space. Plus, stuff costs money and we would rather travel or do fun things. I have a hard time with clutter and a lot of times more stuff becomes clutter.
My husband enjoys his new job here. He is busy working. The other morning he left early to help out with an arrest. My girls were surprised he was already gone to work but my youngest was even more surprised when I told her that their dad was out "catching bad guys" because she didn't realize there were bad guys here! Sweet girl. Just because we aren't talking about bombs, terrorism and walking past guards with AK-47's...she doesn't see or feel the crime and that is OK with me.
It is so nice to be living near our families. We celebrated my husband's and youngest daughter's birthdays since moving here. It was so much fun to be with family. I surprised my husband by inviting his parents to visit during his birthday week. My youngest had all her cousins over that live in the area.
|Daddy and his birthday girl! She chose The Cheesecake Factory for dinner.|
|Super fun pool party plus 3 more cousins were there but not in this photo.|
