Well, made it to Florida on June 2nd after taking 2 days to get here. Drove through heavy rains, fog and crazy drivers from Ohio to Florida. Drove through some crazy towns, such as Big Bone Lick, SC or Stinky Creek, GA. Can't help but wonder WHERE they came up with these names. My favorite was Coosalachiwhachi! LOL.
After celebrating my birthday on Monday, we began searching for a new home. The last one we ended up walking away from due to some important information not being disclosed. We've seen some interesting homes and have discovered that SOME realtors are photo-shopping the pictures they put on the web. For example, we saw a beautiful home but when we went to look at it, there was a lot of wood rot all on the front of the eaves, the soffits and some structural damage. These things would have definitely shown up in the pictures. Additionally, the carpets were unbelievable and the HUGE kitchen actually was smaller than my bathroom! The piece de resistance, however, was the "beautiful" pool. When I looked into its sparkling blue waters, there was what I thought was a "dead" frog. Upon closer examination, however, I could see that it was a mating frog. Still looking closer at the rest of the pool, I could see that the surface was covered with floating frog eggs, hatching frog eggs, tadpoles, pollywogs in various developmental stages and FROGS of all sizes and shapes. Talk about an interesting turn of events!
Have had some R&R, like today, for instance. Our realtor had a family emergency so we took a play day and went to the zoo! Had a blast and even had our photo's taken with a White Rhino. Will be here for a few more days and, hopefully, when we return to Michigan it will be to finish packing up our house and getting ready to make the move to Florida.
The adventure continues!
