Sadly neglected, but the name still applies

So, my apologies to all you faithful readers on how much I have neglected this blog of late. It was not my intention, more a function of difficult internet access compounded by 2 small children. Hopefully, it will no longer be the case.

Why, you may ask? (Well, probably the majority of you are not asking, but there's a few of you out there I still need to catch up.) The answer brings me to the reason the name of this blog still applies (in case any of you had had the same train of thought as I did this past year: that I was past being a newlywed and a newbie in Mexico, and so there wasn't much transition happening anymore...).

Well.....drum roll please.....we have just moved back to Rochester, NY! So, now we have all kinds of new fun transitions.

This is a change we started talking and praying about around a year ago, and it was only this past May that we finally got the visa approved for Herme to be able to live and work here. (He previously had a visa that was only for visiting.) That whole process has been interesting, at times quite frustrating, and I hope to write more about that soon.

We arrived here Wednesday, June 29th (a day earlier than expected, a change we discovered Monday evening). We decided extra baggage fees, altho costly, were cheaper than shipping fees, and came up with 11 checked bags and 6 carry-ons (that was for 3 paid tickets, plus the baby was allowed a diaper bag and stroller). In some ways that seems like a lot of stuff, but in other ways, we really brought only a sampling. We are staying with my parents until we get our feet under us.

For now, just wanted to make sure we were all on the same page, and let you all know that I hope to be writing much more regularly now that I have easy internet access. :)
