 My family had a plan to moving to Jogja this year. My husband and I are trying (quite hard--LOL) to find a house to rent. Since his letter of acceptance is out, we're still haven't find the house yet--a house we desire most. Whereas, we just need a small house with proper kitchen, a garage, fence (for the sake of toddler's security), and... not too expensive. Nor too cheap. We have some budget that maybe not as high as another family do. Somehow we optimist we can find a proper home we've been dreaming of. Since the properties rate in this small city is approach as expensive as Jakarta, we understand on how much to put our standard.

I have to say, Jogja is changing a lot. Some areas are become more populous. Hundreds motorcycles are everywhere. Traffic jam make you insane. I never find our self out of parking lot until we visited campus on last year. Thus, you can find hotels and apartments in every single main street. Compare to five years backward, Jogja has so many modern places and become more urban.

On 2006, we rented a small house in north Jogja only for IDR 3 millions/year (yes, that cheap!). When we moved to Kotagede, we were rented a house still around that numbers. Plus with a huge (but old) house, some space to play balls and catch dragonflies at the backyard, also located in main street of Kotagede. Both the house ain't a new minimalism house. But that houses are just fine, worth to living even there's should be some improvement. Right now, we have to spend at least two-three times more expensive to rent the same house.

Some houses we found are truly beautiful but almost of them reach teeny to twenty millions. Which is over budget. Some of them are only nine to twelve, but they doesn't have kitchen and provides water from watery company. Since we had some bad memories about water, we put them at the bottom of our list. Otherwise, if they have the kitchen and water, sometimes they don't have garage. Or the location are quite far. Or doesn't have fences. Yes, we've been searching that much :')

Well, searching a house to live are just like searching a soulmate. Once you find them, they will be yours no matter what. If you're wondering when is the right time to us, it's also God secret. We're just have to keep on trying. So, wish us luck![]

My current favorite thing is bed time with the kids (hellaw all the sleepy heads out there!). I love being on the bed with clean and neat sheet, and of course laying-laughing with them. Yes, the bed should be clean and the sheet should be neat--with a little pull here and there. 
I feel so peacefully that way.

But this (sleeping with two kids beside me) won't happen if my husband at home. Our bed time formerly are separated and take much time longer because we have to waiting for him arrived home (having his dinner and take a bath). If lucky, he could join us and having a little time together.

Without their father, I can manage the bed time earlier. But first, I have to make sure my daughter's homework has finished and ask her for brushing her teeth quickly. Then making bed and get some bottles of milk for the boy. So the bed time is still around thirty past eight, or at nine on the weekend.

When two kids sleeping aside, it takes sometime to fall asleep. Because they're still have to talk, talk, talk and laugh. And oh, some sings to song. If I'm really tired, I can leave them still talking besides me. I found them still talking when I'm awake. XD

Last night, when the light has been switched for the sleep tone light and everybody was ready to sleep, we were still talking. Chiya talking a lot about her teacher who teach math (confusingly). I can't truly lister to her since the baby made a noisy sounds too X)) Well, actually he's not only blabbering, but kinda want to make a conversation with us. A conversation that only him and God will understand. You should see his face so you know why we can't helped our self from laughing.

Can I say now that our bed time is the best part of the entire day?[]
