It’s a random kind of day…
We have Internet…less than 2 MB per sec, but compared to what we had in the last place, this is blazing. Plus, we’ll get a cheaper price since we’re getting slower speed.
Brenna and Erin were supposed to ride the bus home together today…didn’t happen…Erin never left school grounds…Brenna got into our neighbourhood, but got lost and ended up asking a random woman for a ride home.
Did I mention that both the girls are getting cell phones tomorrow…they’ll only be able to call family members, but better than having them hitchhike across Dublin.
I find the supermarkets here very confusing.
Last night we were finishing dinner at 11 pm…we’re doing okay on sleep, but eating wise we are still on NY time.
I have spent way too much time these past few days reading about the Red Sox trade. I love Josh Beckett…but it was clearly time to move on. Adrien Gonzalez was a very hard person to root for…kinda like being excited about vanilla ice cream. It seems weird that someone so talented could not get people excited about him…
And next on my wish list…please fire Bobby Valentine…I know we can never get Tito back, but if the Sox ownership could come out and admit they blew it by firing Francona, it would make me so happy.
I’ve decided to forgo getting a coffee maker and simply French press my coffee… a good idea? Thoughts?
Our landlord gave us two bottles of wine when we moved in…that has never happened before. We are on the verge of losing out car insurance in our old company does not send us a form we need by Friday…that is one of our stress points at this point.
I took Hannah for her first “manual transmission” drive today…I think she did okay…she described it as terrifying.
There are a lot of ugly colours in our new place….but did I mention that we have internet?
I’m watching Breaking Bad through iTunes… the first time I’ve ever ordered a series through iTunes…one of my favourite shows of all time. (but then I was really excited about Logan’s Run, and Earth 2. Does anyone else even remember either of those shows?
I’m going to start looking for a job this week…it’s been a long time since I’ve had to do this…I generally start things so I can ensure I have a job, and I’m my own boss.
I’ve been to Ikea two days in a row…I’ve had enough until 2014.
At the girls’ school, they have a half-day on Wednesday. And it seems Erin has one on Tuesday too.
I think that’s about all I’ve got…I’d love to answer any questions you might have about our move so far.
Yay for random woman!
Yes for the French press. Best coffee that way! And I do remember both Logan’s Run *and* Earth Two, but I think Travis misses them more than I.
Yes, we switched to French Press a few years ago…love it! Logan’s Run is sooo Kingdom: “We’ve been outside! There’s another world outside! We’ve seen it! Life clocks are a lie! Carousel is a lie!”
