Apartment Found!

when does a girl like me blog??
when I am procrastinating.

It's been almost a month since we found out that we got placed in Detroit....
in that time we have been to visit, found an apartment, and I have applied to 3 billion jobs with a reply or some sort of contact from only 3....
thus I am blogging.
avoiding the internet job search.
which BLOWS.

Lee has already moved!! He's getting things set up in our little apartment and I am finishing up my last 2 weeks at work, then my best friend is getting married, then it's the social event of the year in this little town - MEMORIAL DAY PARADE!

Then I will join my Lee and start our life over again in a new strange place.
that isn't Grenada.

I told someone the other day we were moving to Grenada.... when I meant to say Detroit.
How do you make that mistake?
I sorta teared up...

but guess what................ ALL SYSTEMS ARE GO FOR ME TO VISIT THIS SUMMER/FALL!!!!!!!!!

My heart is more at ease just knowing I can visit soon.
My heart longs for the kids and my body aches for the ocean.

I still truly feel like Grenada is our home and where we belong.  I haven't changed my mind one iota since being back in the states.  Everything is better there... even though the food sucks, it's disgustingly hot and there isn't a place to buy a decent pair of shoes or piece of clothing....

I haven't kept in touch nearly good enough with my kids.
I feel so guilty.  I write letters that never got mailed.  I talk to them sporadically on the phone...
I'm bad a long distance.  I just need to be there.  But that's selfish.
I wrote 6 cards today and am mailing them tomorrow. for sure.

Anyway, we found an apartment in a super safe neighborhood.  In a building with 8 apartments and a super nice property manager.  Lee says there is a nice old lady who lives across the hall. aw.

This is us!

I'll update more about it later!  Off to research plane tickets and more jobs. boo.
