Sort of plugged in...

We don't get internet access until tomorrow, but I found an unsecured network so I can do a few things.

We are moved in, and nowhere close to being unpacked. Thankfully we have a HUGE basement so it looks better upstairs than it could.

Part of our schrank got broken, a german cabinet, Em's brand new furniture got damaged in the move and parts of it broken. We also had some holes, a missing vacuum, and parts of a quilt rack missing too. That's just the beginning of it, I'm afraid of what we are going to discover in the next few days. Oh, and they lost all the parts to Ab's bunkbeds! I was starting to get kind of grumpy till my friend was telling me on facebook how her stuff was coming by train after they moved back to the States from Germany, way back when. The train derailed and they lost it all. Kind of puts things in perspective.

The one thing that we have noticed here on base is that the people are so nice! Even Em says it about everyone we have met or interacted with.

We scored at the BX this morning on patio furniture--a table and 6 chairs for less than $100. It was 40% off and who can't use a good sale like that? I did have problems getting it in the car till a retired couple that watched me chase after Junior Houdini when he got out of the child seat in the cart, the man helped me load and unload my car until he could get it all in there and strapped to the top.

Gunner has a 4 day weekend and my friend Dave is coming in tomorrow to spend the weekend with us. I'm putting him to work.

Triathlon training starts again on Monday and as soon as I am back up to speed, I am hoping to get a few more tris (or one) in before the end of the season. We also have to get school clothes, school supplies, finish unpacking, and all that good stuff. We did get Junior to the doctor and all of his medical forms filled out and they gave us an epi pen to give to the daycare people. Let's hope they never have to use it.

OK now think back through you memory bank. Would you say that after all, things aren't weren't that bad.

Keep your chin up about teaching, all good things come to those that wait. You could be teaching at the school just feet away from your house.

Unsecured internet is a godsend when you are moving! Hope nothing else is broken!
