Things are busy, here's a quick list:
-- We survived the flight. The kids actually did great for being on a plane for 8 hours. Lots of snacks, iPad games, and more trips to a tiny airplane bathroom than I care to recall.
-- They thought it was very funny that there were grown ups all around them taking naps on the plane! Oh, the craziness. Because did they nap? Nay. Nay they did not.
-- Which was all fine and dandy until we got off the plane and their bodies remembered that it was way past bedtime on the east coast and there were still hours until they'd be tucked into a bed.
-- Things kind of went downhill from there.
-- After a short night's sleep, we headed out on Sunday to do some serious house hunting. Thankfully Josh had been able to pre-screen a bunch of homes before we got here to make it easier on us. We hope to have a decision made by tonight.
-- Monterey! It's like a whole 'nother world. Beautiful, beachy, and very, very, hilly.
Makes tooling about in a manual transmission Corolla a bit of a challenge. Josh has been doing all the driving. Not gonna lie, I'm kind of afraid to.
-- Right now it's 6:45 am and I've been up for 2 hours. This is hard to believe, since I consider myself to be a world champion sleeper, able to persevere and snooze through just about anything. I'm a little embarrassed that a 3-hour time change is turning me into a shadow of the sleeping woman I once was.
-- Internet in the base lodging is s-l-o-w, so forgive me for not getting any pictures on for the next little bit.
-- Today our plan includes: moving from one lodging area to another. (Which kind of stinks, but can't be avoided. Right now we're in a bigger unit with 2 bedrooms, but we could only get a reservation for 2 nights here. Next we're moving to a smaller hotel-like room, with one separate bedroom.)
Then we're off to check out the last of the homes on our list and make a final decision.
-- Once we wrap that up, we're going to try to make some vacation plans.
-- Later, gators.
