Back to life!

I cannot believe it has been almost 2 months since I last wrote a post!!!! Oh my! it has been a really long time. The worst part is that this time has been barely documented... you know how I like to have our life documented!

So, we had The Move... from our lovely city in the Mid-West to Mexico City.
We are so lucky that my twin friends went to pick us up to the old place to help with the suitcases and the trip over here.
We had lots of suitcases... I'm glad I had made those crocheted tags because we had a lot of suitcases that we didn't recognize as they were purchased or given to us by friends whom didn't need them any more. We also shipped 13 boxes by regular mail, and I was afraid they wouldn't arrive but they did, fast and in excellent conditions.
It was hard to leave life there and to come here as we didn't have a clue of what we would do or where would we live. It was awesome to come back after 4 years and get to be around family and friends... We came just in time for Mother's day and I got to be with my Grandma!
We arrived to Mexico City on a Friday night... and we were so incredibly blessed that MG had an interview a couple of days later and by the end of the week he had a job already!!! so we spent the next 2 weeks doing paperwork and figuring out a new move.
The job is close to Mexico City but not quite there. It is in a smaller city about an hour away in the State of Mexico, which surrounds Mexico City.

We had to do a whole house search.... did you read that!!??? H.O.U.S.E!!!! not an apartment any more!!!
So looked with real state agents and went to see about 8-9 houses... not the right size, not the right place, we don't like that one at all!, too far away, to expensive... and so on.
Because our good star kept on watching us, MG has family in this new city. So I guess my wish of being close to family came true.
After looking for a house 2 whole days, we came back to Aunt M's house and she suggested we asked to the neighbor who was renting a house. Well, have you guessed it??

It was the perfect house for us!!!!!!!!!
Nice location, nice size, pretty inside, good price... it even has a back yard!!!!
We said yes and the following week we were moving in.

May I present to you..... The Blue House...
So here is where I've been now spending my days... starting life again. Organizing, getting into the place, the town, the house.
I'll be back with more stories about the house and how my settling and organizing is going.
MG is mostly at work and I'm happy that he is settling just fine.

I have to run,
See you soon,
