Fun day

>> Saturday, June 02, 2007

Today, Chloe and I had a nice time together. We washed my car and sprayed each other with the hose, then went to the Mykonos pool. As you can see from the pictures above, Chlo had a good itme "cooking". (I loved using kitchen stuff like that when I was younger.) Then, Unco C. joined us and we went down to the beach. Pretty fun. Nice day.

*Not so great quality of pics, they're from my camera on my p hone.


Speaking of "Home Sweet Home"

I miss home.
We haven't been there since February and I would really like to see my peeps.


Housing Update

Well, we called several more contacts in San Jose to see if they had a.) anything for rent in our price range and b.) if we could have a dog. Here are the results:

  • Property Manager One (our current one): NOTHING
  • Property Manager Two (one I found online): NOTHING
  • Property Manager Three (Recommended by sister): NOTHING
  • Property Manager Four (Recommended by sister): Awaiting phone call
  • Property Manager Five (Local contact): Awaiting info
If we don't have anything by, say, Wednesday - we think we're going to go with the house in Cabo.


Checked out a house last night...

  • 3 bedrooms
  • 2.5 baths
  • Lovely kitchen
  • New construction
  • Great neighborhood
  • Somewhat ocean view
  • Neighborhood pool/workout facility is being built
  • Has sidewalks in the neighborhood
  • Has parking for two cars
  • Has a nice backyard
  • We can paint
  • The house is furnished.
  • It's in Cabo - not San Jose (where we currently live) far from the 'ole famil
  • It's a 15-20 minute drive to work and I absolutely HATE living here. HATE it.
I'm very sad about not living on the beach anymore. I mean, our view is ridiculously gorgeous. However, I'm looking at it like this: THIS is a season. Seasons come and go, and for one glorious season, we got to live on the ocean. Awesome. However, if ever there was a better time to leave the oceanfront living - I don't know... Hurricane season (our worst yet?) is just around the corner...
Am calling two more property managers today. We shall see what happens.


Our life topics as of right now:

>> Wednesday, May 30, 2007

1. We're trying to figure out when we're going to go back to Toledo from June - October. Since it's about $1200 for us both to go at any single time, we're trying to plan appropriately so as to not miss showers, family get-togethers, important memorial golf outings, friend get-togethers, bachelorette parties and weddings. Eek. Not to mention, I'm out of conditioner and need my hair done. Badly.

2. We're also attempting to figure out where we're going to live. Although Mykonos has been very good to us (we're on the ocean/ beach!) - we require: a.) more livable space b.) a second bedroom c.) our dog to live with us and d.) a place that allows 2 cars. We're looking at a house in Cabo today.

3. Hmmm... that's about it.

Thought I'd give the rundown.

P.S. It's going to be so nice for me, C. and Nattie to all be together again.


C. comes home today!
