So we've been at the vacation house for a week now, just starting our second week today. We love it! Jake and I arrived on Tuesday and got all settled. It is a nice cozy house that is just big enough for the five of us, a baby, and two dogs! Sometimes it gets a little hectic, but it hasn't been too bad. :)
The job is about ten minutes away from the house, and it is SO NICE. Let me tell you, after having Jake work 1.5 - 2 hours away every day, this is the biggest blessing! We are loving being so close to one another! We're going to get totally spoiled, but for now that's okay with us. ;)
Fala loves it here too. I was shocked how quickly she adapted to it. In no time she was making herself at home, jumping on couches, loving the outdoor fenced in yard, and playing with Carter. She doesn't really LIKE Carter, she's too much of an old grump for him. But she does occasionally play with him, so that's nice. He's respectful of her though, so I'm thankful for that. No dog fights, no nothing. Fala is also learning how to tolerate a 10 month old baby who is constantly walking, crawling, and pinching is own dog! I don't let him do that to Fala by any means because I KNOW she won't put up with it. But she's learning that he's more likely to poke her than pet her, and she's learning that it's OK to get up and walk away. I prefer that anyway. ;)
We went home this past weekend and, of course, it was lovely to see Belle. She seemed happy to see us too, but by the end of the weekend she was back to being a total brat. I'll see her again on Wednesday, even though my awesome landlord offered to check in on her every day!
I'll see what I can do about getting pics up of this place, but I'm a little hesitant to do so because it's not my own. So we'll see!
