I can NOT believe that July is just about over!!!  When we lived in Arizona that signaled the end of the summer.  The kids went back to school in the beginning of August.   I’m coming up on my 1 year anniversary of living in Oregon.  I’m so happy here.  I grew up moving every two years and saw a lot of the U.S. that way.  I really liked living everywhere that I did and there are amazing parts that I miss about every state but Oregon is the best fit for me and my family now.  I love looking out the window at huge trees and seeing so much green.  The people are so friendly, open and real and there is so much to do here!  I’m so grateful that we were able to make the move.  Now let’s party!

Today we woke up to rain.  I have to say that I’ve never been so excited and nervous for the rain before.  I was nervous because we put a new roof up on my office ourselves.  My husband and I got up on the roof and did it all.  We watched YouTube videos as we went and talked with a super helpful guy at the hardware store and we did it!   Not only were we able to put it up ourselves and survive (I may be afraid of heights) but it worked when the rain came.  The next phase is to get rid of all the damaged walls and things and rebuild.  I didn’t want to do that before we knew the roof was working, so the rain couldn’t have come at a better time.  If you want to see pictures of the awesome new roof  and the disaster that is the room check it out here.

It’s hot here.  It’s no Arizona dessert heat or anything but I’m still hot.  We have friends coming to visit early next month so we’re using it to motivate us to do the repairs to my office that we’ve been planning since February.  To me cash is king so when we have repairs to make that can wait, I do wait until we have the cash to pay for them.  This also means that we do a lot ourselves.  Back in February for my birthday we were finally going to paint my office/photo studio white.  My office is a little sun room that sits off the side of the house.  It was at some point a deck I think that was walled in and had a roof put on.  It’s this light blue color that casts a blue hue onto my picture.  While we were getting the paint we saw some flooring on clearance for $0.68 / sq ft.  so we couldn’t pass it up.

How is everyone?  We’re settling back in after our time out in California.  We had a blast and made it back to Oregon for our first Fourth of July here.  We celebrated with a barbecue on Friday and Saturday and fireworks in the cul de sac both nights.  It was great.  The kids had a blast and my littlest monkey got over his fear of the sparkler by the second night.  What did you do to celebrate?
