we’ve hit the ground running…..

steps in rome

so if you didn’t already hear – we were stranded in Rome Italy.  What was suppose to be a 1 week mid-term break ended up being 3.

It was an ordeal.  I’m not going to lie about it.  It was stressful.  Not just for my husband and I, but also my kids.  Looking back my kids were such troopers and just took it for what it was and handled it as best as they could.  I am proud of them.

There were many instances when I went through the scenarios in my head with what I ‘should have and could have’ done differently but that can totally mess with your head and rob you of your peace, and efforts to move on. 

Anyway it happened.  We learnt our lesson, we also tested some ‘policies’ from our respective Consulate and processes back in our home country.  Lessons learnt all around.

I’m just glad it’s over.  Never have I been so happy to sleep in my own bed and cook my own food.

And now that we’re back,  we’re running out of time.  Remember I shared a while back that our landlord wants to sell so he’s kicking us out…….well we still haven’t found a house and times almost up.

Since returning last Friday I’ve seen over 10 houses……it’s time to short list them and make a choice.  I hate being rushed.  Especially when it comes to finding that house to make a home.

But again…..it is what it is and you do what you have to do.

Life is still good!!

hugs…….
