Family Update

It is time again for an update of the happenings with the Brightwell family. This could be a short post. Emily has been doing great for the last several months - no news is good news for her. Sharleen and Delaney are also doing very well. Sharleen had straight A's for the first half of the year and they are both loving school. The whole family has been battling this annoying cough\cold\flu thing and I thing we are just passing it back and forth.

We have decided that it is pretty ridiculous to live in Avondale and for me to work in South Chandler. I am driving 40 miles one way which equates to about 2 1/2 hours of drive time per day! This is costing me about $200 per month just for fuel. Something has got to change and it will not be the job. This means that we will be moving to the East side sometime this Spring. We are starting the planning for selling our house in Avondale and finding a place in either Tempe, Mesa or Chandler. It seems like this will not be too big of a task (relative to how tough moves can be). Our current house is is great shape and is in a nice location so we should have no trouble selling it. Just a few minor projects to complete before it will be ready to go on the market.

Finding a place on the other side of town looks like it will also not be an issue. We have the Mortgage info together and know what we can afford, and there are many houses to choose from. I will keep you updated on this endeavor.
