Back home

After a crazy three weeks of vacations and traveling, I am now back home.  
It was fun, productive and at times, relaxing, but sometimes your bed, the comforts of home (of course enriched by a small trip to the US that brings some of that home with me) and just being able to do whatever I want....
happiness!

For all of those curious minds out there...
yes, I did find a house.  We will be making an offer on it, but it is a short sale.  Basically, short sales depend pretty much on the bank, and not the seller.  The bank has agreed to take a lesser price, to pay off the mortgage, I believe, to just finish with the loan.  The banks take their time in doing this.  They are not real estate agents, and they do not care that people are anxiously awaiting their answer....it is just another piece of paper to them, sitting on their to do list, waiting to get done.  What does all this mean?  Well, that I will not know if we have the house or not for a long time.  When I know, I will let you all know, deal?

The house is very pretty, re-done quite harmoniously.  I am a Libra, and balance plays a big role in my life.  This house has that balance.  The rooms are airy, plenty of light, and feel polished.  Of course, there are always small things that we would change...but overall, quite a nice house.  When I know if we get it, then I will post pictures.

The trip was short but very sweet.  The waters off Key West are beautiful.  The colors reminded me of our trip to the Maldives...always a good sign!

It was nice to come back and have my kids run to me when they saw me waiting for them at the end of their school day.  I missed them too...
so it was equally sweet for me!

Glad you're back. I want to see photos! I saw B at school yesterday and she was so excited that you were going to pick her up from school. So cute.

Lunch tomorrow?

Nothing like getting home to rest from vacation. But then this wasn't quite vacation. Sounds like lots of fun though.

Nothing better than to sleep in our own bed... I am so picky with hotel linens. I wish could always have mine with me.

I do hope the house is yours by now ;)

I already posted this on Gabriela's blog...
I am supose to go to RJ in May for two weeks in a row. I was wondering do you think we can try to setup a lunch date (you, Gabriela and me). I will have more details of the dates next week.

I have pretty crazy schedule, but I can try to work around.

Let me know!!!
