Still no word from the apartment people. Today I plan on sending some resumes in (even to places that are not hiring, as long as they are in the area. They may not be aware that they need another PT. A fabulous one! named REBECA. ok anyways..)

Yesterday I was taken on a roller coaster ride. Just kinda started to feel...I guess kinda out of control. I came to the realization that in a week I wont have a job, we have no place to live in Cali, and Mikey still isn't registered for classes....
Things have changed a little. Will update soon. Stay posted!!!

First one up: Not too shabby, like the fireplace...No fridge (yes alot of times there is NO FRIDGE, go figure)
Now this next one looks really great except I don't really like the building. But I LOVE the hardwood floors! and the kitchen! but again...no fridge.
He's looking at a loft as we speak. I'll keep you posted and let you know which one we picked. If we pick one....

We spent our first weekend in Brazil in the country for "Sao Joao" -which is a Holiday celebrating the harvest. So everyone goes to the country and eats lots of wonderful food-mainly made from corn.
The streets were decorated for the holiday in colorful flags-as is the custom. It looks SO beautiful and happy! Made me want to do this to a part of my house...maybe the balcony?? hehe maybe not.
This little sign was in a little bar we went into. It mean "street of kisses", isn't that sweet?! I want that sign!
Me and my grandaddy! He turned 80 while we were there! and still going strong! and looking good I might add!
Olinda. one of my favorite places. This city is full of hills that over look the big city of Recife. All the houses are stuck together but each are painted a different color!
We were able to book Mikey a flight using our points form our Amex. He'll be gone 4 days next week :( SO we are doing research so when he gets there, he will know where to look. Tomorrow I will get my fingerprints done...
It is with regret that I must inform you of my resignation, effective July 29th. My family will be relocating to California in the beginning of August, so that my husband could follow his dream to study film. I have enjoyed my position here tremendously, and am sad to be leaving such a wonderful work environment.
Please let me know if there is any way I can assist you during my remaining time here. Thank you for your understanding.
hahaha pretty good huh? anyways....I gotta go to sleep. and hope my husband gives me a massage-my back is KILLING me. which brings me to: i'm getting old. I need a baby.

What a perfect day to come home! Happy 4th of July everyone!! We just came in this morning at ~7am. Our trip was amazing but the flight was tough! I'm exhausted! Spending the night in an airplane is not easy, needless to say we barely slept. As soon as we got in, I was eager to see my little ones (my sister's kids-they are also mine). It's such a relief to see them! Then we were actually able to take a little nap on Noah's bed. Not sure for how long- everything's a blur at this point. Then we rushed to our friend Leo's Bday (he's pretty much family). Yup we hit up a bday party. so yeah we. are. tired.
We finally just got home not too long ago. Coming home was strange. I was glad, it was familiar...but I couldn't help but realize that this will be one of the last time we will be "coming home" to our little apartment. My heart hurts. I think of our family, our friends we will be leaving behind and I want to cry. But I know God is in control. I know it's gonna be hard but I hold firm to the hope of a prompt return in 2013.
On a lighter note, our little trip was AWESOME! we went to the North east of Brazil which is kinda grouped together and referred to as the "Nordeste" by Brazilians. I was born in Recife, Pernambuco which is where we spent most of our time. It's an amazing place with warm weather, majestic beaches, lush landscapes, amazing food and a culture rich in music! Here's a little map in case your curious, the state below the red one is Pernambuco.
Will post some pics tomorrow! XOXO
