Bob and I actually took a walk together today, our first time getting a bit of exercise outside in the new neighborhood. We immediately discovered that NONE of the houses here has a bad view - gosh, this area is beautiful!
We also got to meet one of our neighbors, and her puppy (and another neighborhood dog came by to visit as well). We all talked for a while, exchanged e-mail addresses, got a feel for each other. Had a good time!
Several of the houses in the subdivision HAVE gone to either foreclosure or short sales. The two now for sale have been for sale for a LONG time. At least one family homeschools, and I know from meeting another neighbor that he and his wife are looking into homeschooling their family (eldest child is not yet school age).
So I learned and did things already today. Another successful day! Yay!
