I'm borrowing my new neighbors wireless! If I sit in the far corner of my back porch I can get one bar of signal...woot, woot! Our internet and TV are being connected next week....yeah!! I have my iphone and can check emails, facebook etc...but reading blogs and posting I haven't mastered.
I thought I would do a quick random update...We closed on our house on Monday. So happy to finally have that behind us...what a pain in the neck. We spent the night here on Monday with our bare bones rental stuff. Its funny all the things we acquire over the years and it takes a move to realize how much crap we have. So we are living with the minimal until our stuff arrives. Like 4 bowls, 4 cups, 4 plates etc....
Our cars arrived Tuesday, happy to see them. They have been in storage for two years, we would pull them out for our Christmas and summer visits home. I drove that day for the first time in 7 months...I was nervous and scared, but it was like riding a bike only better. My only fear is I have no sense of direction here and clueless where everything is. Tuesday night we bought a Garmin GPS now all is good. Where we live its pretty rural, it's in the sticks! So my land marks are turn right at the smiley face flag and left after the Llama farm. If I see the goat farm I've gone too far!
Tomorrow the truck with our stuff from storage in Utah will be here...I'm excited but I haven't seen or used any of it in two years I wonder if it's anything usable or just crap. I know there will be anything with american plugs like mixers and lamps etc... Maybe my china from my wedding, holiday decor..random stuff. Also my new washer and dryer from Sears is arriving tomorrow...I have a ton of laundry to do,we are running out of clothes. Our air freight container from Germany, the one that should have been here a day or two after we arrived two and half weeks ago. Is still in Germany with the German customs...am I nervous, yes! All of our clothes and shoes and breakables are in that container. Hopefully they will release it this weekend, then it will have to clear US customs. If all goes according to the new plan we should have them late next week. Our sea container with all our furniture and stuff from Germany is somewhere around Greenland and when it will arrive and clear customs is the million dollar question. Maybe mid August..?
My baby is still in Utah with family and friends, she is having a great time. I miss her first time apart in a very long time. Sophie is doing great, she did great with the plane ride, hotel living and boarding while we were in Utah. I think she likes the new house. We have to watch her pretty close outside, our yard is not completely fenced in and its wild life central here. She has chased rabbits, squirrels, birds and had a stare down with a baby deer. They say there is foxes here and to be careful of small dogs.
Still waiting for my neighbors to bring cookies and say Hi...I even put on a bra first thing in the morning in case one wants to bring morning muffins by. Maybe next week I'll have to bake them cookies and say Hi instead.
I hope to be back reading and commenting on Blogs as soon as I have better internet and stop spending my days with Mr. Clean and a rag.
Have a wonderful day!
