OK, to all of my loyal and happenstance readers, a little catch-up to what has been happening...
The ´Short Version:
Economy hit electronics (people do not buy new gadgets when they are losing their jobs or going bankrupt!); husband was reduced; found ourselves in a country where we don't speak the language well, with two small children and unemployed; sold our home in a record two weeks (only after 2.5 years we were able to make back what we spent plus a little extra... yaay); planning a move to we-don't know where; looking for homes in Italy on the coast near Rome; might have to move to Bologna first 'til we get settled financially; still don't know where we are going!
No long version, I've been living through it and am too exausted to write about it.
