Days are filled with house hunting, juggling children, deciding which restaurant or grocery store to catch meals and marveling at the luxury of drinkable tap water again.
To say we are on overload is an understatement.
The girls have finally settled into our temporary rental home (a lakefront mansion we rented on a wonderful fluke) after 2 weeks visiting family and friends back "home" in Illinois/St. Louis. We hope to put an offer in on a Texas home this week, after 3 rocket days of viewing new and slightly used houses. This home doesn't need to fulfill us, it just needs to meet our shelter requirements for a short time, which is so different from our first fixer upper and our last "dream home" that was the home, but never could give us the edge of that dream.
Stay tuned as we re-Americanize ourselves.
