So, here's the place. Not to shabby, heh? We like it, but like all places it has good and not so great features.
Here is one (yep 1 of 2) of our bathrooms. I no longer have to share a bathroom with my kids. However...there is no bath tub. We're still trying to figure out how to shower the boys. It's been a little tricky.
And now, most gloriously...a dishwasher and a washer & dryer!! I've used the washer & dryer at least 5 times already and even though it takes 2 cycles to dry each load I don't even care!! I don't have to haul my laundry anywhere but back and forth between rooms!! YEA!!!
A Few Other Tid-Bits...
What's he doing you may ask???
This is Tuesday night and previously this day we bought some groceries including uncooked, doughy tortillas because we thought we would be moving into our place. We decided not to take the place (it's a longer story) and we checked into a hotel across the street from Ben's school. After Ben's class he came back and wanted to make some dinner. Talk about thinking outside the box, right?? He even melted a little cheese on top. The boys thought it was great.
So the next time you're in a hotel you'll have to wonder how many people with bed bugs have slept in your bed, how clean the shower really is, AND about what was ironed before you iron your husband's shirt for church.
Also,we went to the grocery store again on Saturday and the boys each had thier heads rubbed by 5 different ladies. They're loved by Mexican Chicas!! By the way...I hate grocery shopping with Ben and I hope to only have to do it a few more times. He takes FOREVER!!! Granted, he enjoys looking at all the yummy Mexican foods he hasn't seen in 10 years, but the longer we're in the store the more battles I have to intervene between brothers, the more explanations I have to come up with as to why we aren't buying more junk, and the faster I lose patience.
All and all, there have been more good than not so great things about being here and we are enjoying ourselves. I think it's going to take us another week or so to figure a schedule and a rhythm that works for us and then we'll start to site-see. By the way, it's 75 degrees here!! That is the last I'll mention of the weather, I promise!
