Another absence, a happy return ;)

As you have noticed, I was away... again ;/     but now
well at least by my own demands ;)

Many things have happened in these last months, many of which I wish hadn't, like my son being physically abused by the staff at
Lindenhurst elementary school in Long Island.  After many battles, I decided not to send him back, and that has definitely been a battle of it's own.

Now, we're one week away from summer vacation, and after all of the trials of this last year, we are definitely ready for a vacation.  For some time to just be able to lay around and be with each other ;)

After living with relative's for 9 months, we FINALLY have our own place!!!
(picture me doing the happy dance)
                                                                    ok, the mouse was cuter

We found a house (sadly in my heart it's still in NY and not California), but at least we have our own little piece of the world.  We didn't buy it, of course we are renting, but the feeling of finally having our own place, is just too amazing to keep inside ;)

When we left California, my husband had the brilliant idea to leave all of our furniture behind, kind of a "new beginning" for everything; our lives, our place.  Well... now that we were finally able to get our own place, the funds aren't there for new furniture, or old furniture for that matter, but we'll make the best of it ;)

Which brings me to my next set of news.  Since I am starting over, instead of having a brand new house with everything brand spankin' new (as I really wish I could ;) ), I am excited to be able to "do" everything by myself.
What in the world am I talking about you ask?
I get to upcycle, recycle, diy, and make everything by myself, one day when I am done I can look around and feel satisfied knowing I made all those things I see.  Until then, you will be reading my step by step tutorials, and read a few rants in between, lol.

I am very excited to post about our new adventures, about how we turn an old house into our loving home, as well as my children's first ever full summer out of school!!!!!
(in California they always have had year round school)

Until next post, I hope you all have a wonderful beginning of Summer!!!!

    it is common for the borrower to still have the remaining balance on the mortgage loan.
    There are many lenders who seek to have all costs and liens cleared by the upcoming
    buyer. However, depending on specific programs, laws, and state legal
    guidelines there may be some loans which aren't easily solved through the switch of lending products. Therefore, the obligation still lies on the debtor that has had his or her property in foreclosure process. Thanks for sharing your thinking on this blog.,クロエ アクセサリー

  87. Thanks for your blog post. I would also like to
    say that a health insurance agent also works well with the benefit of the actual coordinators of the group insurance policies.
    The health insurance professional is given a directory of
    benefits searched for by someone or a group coordinator.
    What a broker can is search for individuals or maybe
    coordinators which usually best go with those wants. Then he offers his advice
    and if both sides agree, the actual broker formulates an agreement between the 2 parties.,

  95. One more thing. In my opinion that there are several travel
    insurance sites of respectable companies that allow you to enter
    a trip details and obtain you the rates. You can also purchase the international travel insurance policy on the web by using your current credit card.
    Everything you should do is to enter all travel particulars and you
    can be aware of the plans side-by-side. You only need to find the program that suits your
    finances and needs after which it use your bank credit card
    to buy them. Travel insurance online is a good
    way to do investigation for a respectable company with regard to international travel insurance.
