The last week or so we've been busy. After about 3 months of searching for a more permanent home here in Switzerland we finally found an adorable, renovated old victorian attic apartment in an old house (built in 1890!) located in a cute little town about 35 minutes outside of Bern, called Schwarzenburg. Apparently, the difficult tri-fecta of having a dog, a baby and being a foreigner is a tough sell to rent an apartment in this semi-racst, close minded, crowded, but beautiful little country. No discrimination laws exist in this place, that's for sure!! Oh well- although this place is much further out than we were hoping, it is cute (but small!) and we love the owners, who are part American.
We will move in May 1st, which incidentally is when Cora and I will be in the USA (sorry Nat!!!). Nat will move us and then when Cora and I return we will make sure the old place is cleaned up when we return.
On another note, I am more excited than ever to head back to America for a month- Colorado, Idaho, Colorado again and then to Tampa, for many much needed visits with all those I love and miss dearly. I'm very, very nervous flying with my little wiggly-worm, but I can only pray that she behaves and is good. Otherwise, there might be a lot of Benedryl in her future and a lot of Whiskey in mine ...
Here are a few pics from the past week:

|The entry way. Probably will soon be filled with shoes, dog hair, gear and toys despite my every attempt for it to be tidy.|
That's all for now!!
