American Dream — Part 2

Most of our backyard.In the previous post I stopped at us meeting with our agent, Laura, and seeing 5 houses in Redding and Ridgefield. Three of the houses were in a rather bad condition and needed a lot of work — that is something that we were not prepared to do at all.

Two out of those fives houses were in a pretty nice condition, but one was out of the range of the prices that we wanted to pay and we didn’t really give it a serious look. And the last house that we saw seemed to fit the bill. It looked pretty nice inside with very big bedrooms. We really liked it. So we made a “lowish” offer, the sellers came back and eventually we agreed upon a very decent price.

The next stage was a series of inspections. One thing that I didn’t really realize was the fact that vast majority of towns in America actually don’t get any utility services from the city beside electricity. No water, no sewage, no natural gas. Nothing. I heard that some people had private wells before, but I thought it was a fancy choice of those owners. Turns out it’s because there is no other option.

Busy Day

New stroller. It's a 2 seater. Lower seat is already taken.Today we had a big day and did a lot of important things. I’ll go chronologically.

Alena and Arosha test drove the new stroller that we ordered this week. The stroller is Baby Jogger 2011 City Mini in crimson-gray1 that was recommended to us by Vicky. It was delivered yesterday to my office and I assembled it there. So far it looks to be great and is much more portable than our first one. Hope it will serve us as well as the first one did. It’s definitely going on a cruise with us. Continue Reading

Happy Year

New Year in the HallwayThis year is almost over and New Year decorations are starting to appear all over the city. I think I’m ready to start getting into the holiday mood as well.

The year 2007 was a great year for us, as the one before. Many things happened, but probably the most important achievement of the year is the acquisition of our own apartment and the fact that our parents have finally took the same step. Yesterday they closed the deal on their own apartment in the same building as ours. A couple of weeks of minor fixes and we’re all hoping that they’ll be celebrating the New Year in their new home.

The lobby of our building is already full of decorations and it always fills me in with a kind of a warm feeling every time I come home. This is one of the main things that we need for complete happiness I think. The warms of the home. And luckily I have plenty of that.
