On The Road Again...

Well, it looks like the Cleaver household is going to be packing up and moving again. Such is the life of a military family... once you get all of the moving boxes unpacked and you begin to make lifelong friends, you move.

We are heading back to Omahaheho. Where the beef is in abundance and the cornfields are a plenty. I can't wait to sink my teeth into a Runza Hamburger!


We own a house in Omaha... but because Murphy rules in this family, we have renters with a iron-clad lease in there so it looks like we will have to find another abode. I will be sure to drive past my house several times a day and stick my tongue out at our renters. It would be easier if I didn't like them, but they are very nice people... who are living in my house and making me find another house to reside in even though I own a house there. Whatever.


So not only will we be packing up and moving in the next few months, but we will get to do it all over again in a year when our renters move out! Can you say "FUN!" There is nothing I love more than having sweating overgrown men handling all of my dishes and unmentionables and packing them in boxes and ultimately breaking things and stealing my husband's 1962 February issue of Playboy when June Cleaver was the centerfold.


So, if you are interested in buying a house in the DC area, contact me because we have a great little Colonial that is in need of a new family.


Also, if you have a house in Omahaheho that is up for rent and are in need of a nice Irish family to move in... contact me as well. I promise that we will keep the parties down to a minimal and we won't park our RV in the driveway.

Omaha in the winter? Lovely.

But, alas, I fear I need to correct you. The centerfold in Febraury of 1962 was not June Cleaver, but the Norwegian beauty Kari Knudsen.

Please don't ask me how I know this. Let's just say that my late father and his little brother were "collectors."

That's your "little" colonial? Nice!!! (appreciative whistle)

It could be worse. You could be being moved to Detroit (says the lifelong Detroiter). Of course, housing here is probably almost cheaper than in Omaha right now because our real estate market is in the toilet, but then you'd be stuck with whatever you bought for the next ten years...

It's 32 right now in Omaha. I had no idea June Cleaver posed for Playboy, but I must admit it sounds interesting. Hee Hee...

I enjoy your blogs.

If you need some short-term renters, let me know.

Cris, Let me give you an early welcome back to the midwest from one midwesterner to another - misery loves company! HE!! Maybe a homeschool field trip to the Henry Doorly Zoo this spring?
