A small detail the phone company neglected to mention when we transferred service to our new home last Friday: it takes 5 days to get DSL up and running in a new location! For a girl who is rather addicted to the internet, 5 days is an eternity. I feel so out of touch, but it will still be a while before I can fully catch up - life is just a little crazy around here. The big move was Saturday and, thanks to a lot of help from family, my kitchen and bathrooms are mostly unpacked. I feel reasonably well settled, and now have over two husband-less weeks to "camp" with the kids and hopefully get a lot done. Dan left last night for his missions trip to Malawi (remind me to post about that) and is still in the air. I already miss him, but today I was able to get the living/dining room painted in lieu of cooking dinner and other good-wifely things. My goal is to have the entire downstairs painted and be able to fit at least be able to fit one car in the garage by the time he returns. Whether I succeed will depend on how many sleepovers the kids have at their grandparents'!
