we made it back to brasil safely last week after a fabulous 3 week visit home. now we are finding ourselves adjusting to this place all over again, and in different ways. our visit home was so great, our schedules were free and we found ourselves doing lots of relaxing and running around. but, 3 weeks was far too long to be away from the Mr. and ave and i wont attempt that again anytime soon.
we came back to brasil to a new home. its nice and simple. and in simple i mean a bathroom and few bedrooms. not even a kitchen, but we're working on that part. since the inlaws live in a hotel, and we live in a kitchenless apt. we eat out for every.single.meal. never thought i would dislike eating out but after about the 2nd day i was craving a good home cooked meal. i wont tell you how many times we've had mcdonalds for dinner since i've been back but it was for dinner tonight and uhhh....for dinner last night as well, and when we came upstairs to eat avery looked at her dinner and said 'chicken nuggets and french fries,' if that gives you any idea. i can feel the greasy pounds piling on as i type (and finish off my cheeseburger).
we don't live right on the beach anymore so i dont find myself walking out the door and across the street to play in the sand and the sun, and its not super safe where we live so i can't just strap the girl in her stroller and go for a walk... so i'm on the look out for ways to entertain the little misses, but she sure is a busy one and keeps me on my toes. today she figured out how to open all the windows upstairs so she could wave to the cars driving by. oh the joys.
it is nice, however, to have our own little place and some privacy, and it is nice to have trae working downstairs. i can sneak down there as often as i'd like to say hi, or tell him i need a 5 minute avery break, or ask him to come upstairs and play with us for a few minutes. this place has its perks.
