The Day We Lost Our Car Insurance

There were all types of things Liz and I planned to work on today. However, when your insurance company calls & says, “we are going to cancel your policy,” getting that resolved has a way of  moving itself to the front of your agenda. So, way back when...

Random…

Random… It’s a random kind of day… We have Internet…less than 2 MB per sec, but compared to what we had in the last place, this is blazing. Plus, we’ll get a cheaper price since we’re getting slower speed. Brenna and Erin were...
Moving Again…

Moving Again…

Tomorrow morning, we are leaving our temporary home here in Lucan at 8 am, and I am dropping Liz & Brenna (& Méabh) off at Brenna’s school (tomorrow is induction day for her…Erin’s induction day is tomorrow.) The boot (Irish for your...

A Whack to the Frontal Lobe

Although I’m a guy, I’ve never been a fan of the 3 Stooges…I really don’t get them. But you know that part where occasion one of them would, out of the blue get smacked in the head with a plank? That’s the best way that I can describe how...

Random Stuff In My Head

I guess I’ve been a bit obsessed with the house hunt recently (ya think?). Thought I’d take a few minutes to share some other things going on with our transition to Ireland. In no specific order: Méabh hates Mozart: Last week Liz mentioned that she has...

Being Still…(or at least trying to be)

We didn’t do any house hunting today… Basically, because there is nothing left to be hunted. (Well unless you count the place right on the water for €2,700 per month ($3,330.45)…or the other two that are €1900 & €2000 respectively. Yeah, none of...

And We’re Back…

The past 10 days or so are a bit of a blur. Dublin to Boston to Ithaca to Long Island and back to Dublin via JFK. We landed at the Dublin Airport, 9:30 am on Tuesday, went back to the Garza’s home where we have been staying and by that afternoon Liz & I were...

Trying to Avoid the Nuclear Option

A couple of days before we left for Ireland, I wrote a post about knowing…and obeying God’s will. If you’ve been following along over the past couple of weeks, you’ll know that we are still looking for a place to live…and the big struggle...

Looks Like We Are Still Homeless

This morning as I was walking back from my morning trip to Starbucks, I was praying & two thoughts came to mind: 1) I don’t think this is the right place (meaning the place we are trying to rent.) 2) I think the landlord is waiting for a better offer. When I...

We have a car!

I know we put a picture up a couple days ago…but now it’s our car in our parking spot! (at least as long as we are at the Garzas.) I’m not sure which was worse…handing over the money to but the car, or getting the bill for the rental car and...
