Well, it has been a little over a week now since Laura and I have been back in the USA. Its been a literal whirlwind of activity.
So far, here is what is has looked like:
-Arrive on 20 June;
-23-25th- Look for apartments and visit ones we found online;
-25th- Sign on new apartment;
-26th- Travel to Tuscaloosa Alabama to look for a car & buy one;
-27-28th- Spend some time with family in Tuscaloosa, including new nephew Jake;
-29th- Drive back to Atlanta.
So yeah, nine days, one apartment, one car and today we should be able to pick up our shipment of stuff from Switzerland at US customs. They’ve been holding it! I can assure them, there are no terrorist manuals or stuff like that in there. Just a bunch of books and a few pretty decent movies.
On Saturday, Laura and I also celebrated the big 5. Yep, that right, it has flown by, but it has been five years now since we’ve been married. In many ways, it is hard to believe it has been that long, in others, it seems like it has been longer. But hey, thats life, right? We are very excited about the next 5 and really can not wait to see what will come!
As for our little puddle hopper, aka our car, we bought a 2004 Pontiac Vibe. Yeah, we are feeling pretty good about it. Gets a lot of mpgs and is quite comfortable.
So that’s life here. Hopefully, more substantial blogging will return soon. But then again, even some of that will depend on wifi availability. Wait for it….its coming!
