I realized that it has been a little while since I updated the blog on what's going on since we finished our big move to Fargo. We are slowly getting settled here, but it is a process that happens a day at a time.
The first thing on the to-do list when we arrived was to find jobs. Cambria and I both did some work for a summer theater school teaching for the first month. She taught acting and I was busy doing improv and acting classes. It wasn't a very long job but it helped to give us some time to find real jobs. Cambria has another week or two with the theater school as she has been helping with a production of Oklahoma. We both found other long term jobs too now so we are slowly getting a schedule of our own which is nice.
The past few weeks we have been staying with my parents while we shop around for a place of our own. It's been very nice to have a little cushion to get used to the area, and to have a home base where we can stay as we search for jobs and get situated. We have finally found a home and are just waiting to close on it. Seems like everything is going smoothly so hopefully in a week we will be in a place of our own completely.
Getting our own home lends itself to some new problems though. We don't currently have any furniture to put in it other than a bed, a dresser, and some boxes so we have been searching the internets and craigslist for deals. We found a couch. Now we are searching for a clothes washer and dryer as well as a lawnmower. Just a few things we never thought we would need for a while.
We find out in a week if the new Baby Bean coming is a Ninja-Pirate-Jedi Warrior, or a Princess-Ninja-Pirate-Jedi Warrior. We are super excited to find out, as it will narrow the baby name arguments by half.
Along with all this I have filled some of my time with the project of repairing my old moped. It was kind of a challenge since I know nothing about motors, but I did learn a lot and actually got it running. Turns out that you can discover a whole world of help on the internet. There is someone out there fixing and repairing the same thing I am. It's pretty cool.
