GASP so busy...

I'm so busy, I can't catch my breath, really.

Started my job yesterday after just 10 days to settle here. I'll be working 4 days this week and 4 days next week. It's the same job I had in Belgium but I opted to take a lot of time off clearing out of Belgium and so they were anxious for me to start quickly here.

We found a house and it's fabulous! I would love to wax on and on about how much I love it and show pictures but seriously, I hardly have time to think about it. We are having to put off getting our household goods until the first week in August because we don't have the day to spend with the movers but we actually move out of the hotel and into the house this Saturday. We will subsist with Army loaner furniture for a few weeks.

Bought a used car: a Fiat Punto - it's a puny Euro specification vehicle to use for all our running around.

Husband hit the ground running here and is spending three days IN CRETE, the lousy rotten scoundrel! And next week, it's Rota, Spain. Such a tough life... I am plotting to get in on some of these business trips (if I pay my own way).

C-Bear heads to the states to visit her cousins at the end of the week!

Back in the Pacific Northwest, E-Dude started school up a few weeks ago and is taking a math and history class. So far he's doing splendidly splendific... He reports 100% on all things turned in so far.

Alas, all is not perfect... P-Diddle is bored in the hotel and misses his drums and his friends desperately. He hits the pool daily for a bit of entertainment but other than that he's feeling pretty isolated.

That's all I can think of for now. Just wanted to give a quick update.

More later....

YOu have a remarkable life!
Is carol visiting Tina? I will send the grad card that has been sitting on my counter for a month- to her in the states.
Congrats on your move!
