An Update

I know, I know, I should write more often, and I mean too, but things are overwhelming. But there is some good news and bad news. Lets hope there is more of the good news in the New Year.

Good News: We finished the inside of the apartment. This is something that has been giving me nightmares forever, but now it is done, and it looks great. Also good news, we managed to find tenants who will move in February with a 4 year contract, so we will not need to worry about it for a while now.

Good News: The boys have been amazing considering how boring this visit must have been for them, mostly with us working on the apartment or being passed between family members. I am so proud of them.

Bad News: Thanks to inflation and resession we are actually losing money on our apartment every month, even renting it out. So many people have left the country that the market is full of empty apartments and not many people can rent. This means the prices are low, really low. We are renting our for ours for the cost of keeping the apartment and losing money on the tax of our new income every month. Guess you can not win them all.

Bad News: Well, we do not know for sure if it is bad news, but it is a little stressful. Davíð has a catscan appiontment here while we were in town. It was to check on his veins for a disorder that runs in his family. Turns out his veins are fine but they found 2 lumps or something. So he had blood tests, a lot of them, and so far there seems to be no answer. No one is saying anything. But he has to be in the lab up north for more tests on Friday. Naturally Davíð acts like a hero, like nothing bothers him. I can admit I am worried.

Small Rant: It is times like this that I wish I was in Canada. In this situation, the last thing on our minds should be the cost of health care. The catscan cost 16000 (maybe 160 CAN.), still havent received the bill for the blood tests and who knows what the next tests will cost. Davíð actually told the doctor he was not sure if he would go because he did not want to spend anymore money.
People have a right to health care and this makes me crazy angery.

So, on with the pictures:
