a bit smaller, a bit less expensive

We are still researching our options and finding that if we are willing to live on the other side of the mountain, we can afford to live on the other side of the world.

$272,895 US for 1280 square feet apartment and 172 square foot storage shed.

this is not ideal, but it is at least survivable. I am still fighting my own fears of just loosing so much and gaining so little. The shear thought of giving up every single electronic appliance is just mind numbing. today I went through the blankets cabinet and realized that the electric blanket would not work there.

the curling irons and blow dryers, the coffee maker and coffee bean grinder. Very daunting task of selling everything in the coming months.

the boys have been assigned their classrooms and teachers. Magnus has Ms. Volton for 1st grade and Erik has Ms. Hill for 2nd grade. looks like both teachers will assign a lot of reading.
