Feiya’s birthday was 2 weeks ago. We celebrated by eating out at a new revolving sushi restaurant that opened near our house, Kaizen Revolving Sushi . It was great. The service was wonderful and the sushi was exceptional. Sushi is Feiya’s favorite meal, so it was a big hit with her.
I should have posted this 2 weeks ago, but I’ve been slammed with work and side projects this month. Anyway, Feiya just turned 12. It’s amazing to think this is the last pre-teen year. She’s doing very well at school. I’m really proud of her. She’s coming along with learning to play her viola and I’m looking forward to her Spring Concert in April. She has all A’s and B’s in her classes. Her and I cook dinner together most Sundays. We listen to music, cook and have a lot of laughs.
We’ve been in Vegas for 2 years now and have settled into our new life here. I’m still working the same job and so is Dana. We both have aspirations beyond our jobs, but are content for the time being. With all things, change happens. This year will be a a year of change. Just today, we made an offer to purchase a house. It’s a remodeled flip in a gated community not far from our original apartment. For me, this will be my first time as a homeowner. It seems a little surreal. With every move we’ve made, this will be a step up. Not a gigantic step in terms of space, but a step up nevertheless.
Most of the homes we’re looking at are not zoned for Feiya’s middle school. It’s too much of a stretch for our budget to get a house in that zone. I do have a shot at keeping Feiya in her school next year and I’m going to give it my best shot.
Overall, we’re pretty excited and hopeful our offer get’s accepted. It has a completely new kitchen and look forward to cooking many Sunday dinners with Feiya in it. Naturally, I’ve hired one hell of a real estate agent. So, we’re in good hands.
