New Home! Finally

So we are getting comfortable in our new home. Just had Chad and Alex over last night for our very first guests. I made meatloaf - and working from home makes this kind of dinner possible. We have a 1600 sq' home now - with a garage and yard(s).

Cody is able to walk to school and I can walk to Chad's house. He is about 3 blocks away. Will post some pics as soon as some of the boxes get unpacked. We are working on it. I have a goal - 5 - 10 boxes a day.

In addition to getting a new house, I am working from home now. That is proving to be a bit of a struggle as I want to unpack boxes all day. But I am focused and doing my work. Which is why I am here now actually. I have been reading resume's for a bit now and found a cool quote on the bottom of one of them. I will share it with you now:
"Peace requires us to surrender our illusions of control. We can love and care for
others but we cannot possess our children, lovers, family, or friends. We can
assist them, pray for them, and wish them well, yet in the end their happiness and
suffering depend on their thoughts and actions, not on our wishes."

Pretty cool eh?
