A new state, a new job, a new blog! Welcome to this site. This is quick update for those who have asked me to keep them updated with our building and life. After a few weeks of being apart, Kris, Kristianna, Wesley, and Smudge joined Isabel, Susan, and myself at what we affectionately call the Periwinkle Palace in Xenia, Ohio. I started work at Miami Valley Hospital already and have been trying to reacquaint myself with this area after being in FL for 13 years. It seems to be a friendly area and a great place for the kids although we all still miss our buddies back in FL right now. This house was built in the 1890s so it has a lot of character. We have been busy unpacking, visiting the property, and finding necessary places. The kids piers are still in school so they have been hanging out with us and that works for us all right now. I will try to keep you all updated as to our events and post pictures as I am able.
