We are here... we are settling in, in Lebanon in Ka-Ka and Pop's house.

We are getting our schedules sorted out and will be fine in due time.

I developed a cold or something the day we actually moved out... I felt it moving in on the day I was driving up here with the boys and dogs in the car.
I still have it and it looks like it might stay a while.

G has started asking... nay, telling me "I NEED go home."
Yeah... it breaks my heart.... he gets sad and cries... I cry with him and tell him it is ok to be sad... it only last a minute.. hopefully he will go a day here soon he won't mention it.

Overall though.. everything is going much better than we expected and we are extremely proud of all of our 4 legged babies as well as the 2 legged ones.

So far.. so good.

*House update: we decided not to buy the 1.7 acres plot, but we are going after the plot next to it.. it is 1.3 acres.... the 1.7 has a lot of boulders on it that will be costly with building on it... the 1.3 acres is flatter and wider and it will not need the costly footers the house would need on 1.7 acres.
We are still working on the plans and it is looking like we are making progress. We put a ceiling of $200,000 on it and we are working to "try" to keep it under that with everything we want... because we are not stupid.. after all is said and done, it will probably be like $220,000 after we put the "upgrades" in it we want. And that will still keep us well under what we can get approved for... no reason for living up to your means... that will be just too close to living above your means.
