Dreaming of Chile again…

January 17, 2013

I have been reading up on Chile again…it seems to be booming, and it seems to be the perfect spot for us.  But to actually pack up and leave, that’s another story!  Such a huge decision, and you know what a great decision maker I am!  It’s scary and exciting and makes me anxious,...

40…

March 20, 2012
By

Not really happy at the moment that I am 40.  It’s just a number, I know, but it is making me evaluate my life. I feel like I am going nowhere.  I have no passions, nothing that I want to do more than anything in the world.  I am getting so apathetic – becoming...

I have never been interested in politics. I believe I was born at a perfect time in history so I have never HAD to be concerned with politics.  It didn’t matter because everything has been so good and we have had such a good life.   I say that often and truly believe it. Now,...

She’s 4!

Yep, she’s 4. Don’t know how life goes by so fast, but it does, and she is, indeed, 4. Funny, smart, and beautiful. Definitely getting taller…outgrowing all of her pants. Having fun at whatever she does….learning lots in school, making friends, loving. That’s our Olivia! Sometimes she wakes up while I am in the...

Iron much?

I was watching House Hunters International last night – I love it! – and there was a man ironing his shirt (I know, right?). Olivia said “Grandma has one of those!” It killed me. Seriously. I guess I have never ironed in front of her. That’s hilarious…I honestly don’t even know where the iron...

Moving to Chile, part 2

I have been devouring this blog (Escape America Now / Advisory Services for Ex-Pats to Chile) over the last few days – it’s written by a 14 year expat that lives in Chile.  He has SO much wonderful information on his blog that I can’t seem to stop reading it!  The added benefit of...

Chile

La Serena, Valparaiso, Antofagasta.  These cities were unheard of to me until the last few days.  But, then I read this article: Moving To Chile, Part Two That could totally be my list!  Except I started my research by weather, much as I did when we moved to Idaho.  I can’t take the heat,...

Mud

It rained a lot the last couple of weeks, and Olivia loves playing in the mud. So, we dress her in old clothes (thus the shortness of the pants!) and let her play. I downloaded 45 free apps for Olivia on my ipod touch today – spelling, tracing her letters to practice, memory games,...

It’s already March?

How did that happen?  WOW.  No pics right now…I am at work of course.  I am actually really busy, but decided I HAD to catch up a bit here! Well, we’ve had a fun couple of months.  Mike turned 40 in February!  He actually had 3 birthday dinners.  His mom came out the week...

The holidays…

Have come and gone, with no posts from me! Last time I wrote, we got a bit of snow. On December 1st, we got the most snow I have seen since childhood (except on a mountain of course!). We got 8″! It ended up being a snow day because there was no way our...

First snow of the year!

The 1st snow is always fun! It’s really coming down – we are supposed to get 3″ or so…we rarely get snow this early!  I’m glad I got my shopping done yesterday I just hope the snow doesn’t wreak havoc with the upcoming holiday week! Have a great weekend!

Hi there

It’s been way too long, I know. I have too much to tell you about, so I will mostly just tell you in pictures. Mike wanted peppers this year – all of these came off of the one pepper plant that survived the deer and squirrel attacks. We planted a potato in May. We...
