Hi Everyone...It has been a while since I have posted or did much at all on the computer. The move from California to Ohio went pretty smooth. We took 5 1/2 days to drive and did a mini driving vacation. I will have to say that the little ones did great for that long trip I can not make any complaints. We have decided to rent...I found an ad in the classifieds for a small ranch home but in a beautiful location. We are in the a little village called Wayne Lakes. The house sits on a lane with us and another home but I wake up to birds singing and see squirrels running in the yard. Beautiful trees, landscaping, creeks and lakes surround this little village. We live outside of town but is only 5 to six miles out so very small commute. The area is quite and the kids have a little front and back yard to be able to run and play in as well as the community has a swim/lake area., playgrounds, fishing and a gatehouse with a small convience/bait/beer and pizza place. My hubby had been born and raised in the Bay Area for 50 years and is now a small town boy where I came from and loving it...he gets a transition time with the drive home instead of that Califronia commute traffic. I still have some unpacking to do and I have to get my scrapping supplies from my Mom's where we stayed briefly. I can not wait to get my most important area set up...LOL! I am ready to work on my scrapbooking and again revisiting my first love of painting... I love finding old pieces of furniture and items to refinish and then do some decorative painting on them.
