We love electricity!

Our stuff came! Hurray for stuff! It now officially feels like home. The contrast is amazing when you consider what our apartment looked like with all these boxes in it- we could hardly move around, we had to negotiate through these mazes of boxes- and what this house looks like with the same stuff: it has absorbed all our things and hardly looks half full. Some rooms have barely anything in them. WAHOO! It's kind of deceptive- it feels like we're almost done moving in. Uh, no. We have a long ways to go. But we're making progress. Speaking of progress...

There's nothing like being forced to plunge into 19th century living to make you appreciate the comforts of the 21st. Georgia Power- the nefarious oafs- decided to turn off our power because we hadn't jumped through all their silly, little hoops fast enough. Great was my wrath upon coming home from a shopping trip with Penny on Wednesday afternoon to find that the lights wouldn't turn on in the kitchen. RRAR. SO I had to quickly evacuate all my perishables from the dim refridgerator and zoom over to Penny's to install them in her fridge. It's SO nice that they live only about half a mile away - they have been lifesavers so many times already. It wasn't until yesterday afternoon- after the movers had unloaded everything and driven away- that the power man came out and graciously allowed us to return to the modern age.

Many thanks to Penny, and our parents, for all their help moving us in. Yay for you! You were a BIG HELP.

As a traveler, I hate stuff!

But it sure is nice to have at home...so glad yours arrived, and you are now more settled in a lighted home.

So glad you are here!
