I woke up at 8am and took the kids for breakfast. I wish I could relax so I would be more patient with the kids. It took almost a week to decompress from my three day drive to OK, and having arrived only yesterday to OH it is obvious to myself that I am still stressed out from it. But having Tyler here makes such a difference. He is currently swimming with the older four in the hotel pool and that is super nice.
Upon loading up on the van, we realized that someone broke into our van during the night. They stole our portable dual screen tvs (which contained Keith's new LOTS AND LOTS OF JETS AND PLANES Volume 2 DVD), our tomtom charger cord, our fm transmitter/iPhone charger, and my Time Out For Women bag. Crummy. We told the manager at the hotel and he said another car was broken into as well. Ugh.
We looked at three houses today. Upon entering the first two, I knew in about five seconds that there was no way I was living there. The third one was beautiful and had about everything I was looking for in a house. I loved it. The only problem was its location. It is in Dayton and near a poorer area that didn't make me feel safe. Plus it was far from any grocery stores and a bit of a drive to Tyler's work. So...despite loving it, we are looking elsewhere. I looked and found four more houses that we will look at on Monday morning. I am feeling highly stressed about it, as school starts on Wednesday and I don't know what district to enroll them in.
Tonight we ate at an old favorite Mexican restaurant. A fun time was had by all:
Silas, Tyler, Calvin, and Keith
