Our House is a Very, Very, Very Fine House


They say that when your ship comes in
The first man takes the sails
The second takes the afterdeck
The third the planks and rails.
Well, our ship finally came in and we suffered very little damage. A couple sculptures were cracked and the desktop computer needed some minor repair.
The truck with the container pulled into the driveway and 3 guys took 1 1/2 hours to unload everything.
Kimberly had to call her sister Cindy to give her the good news.

Be careful not to touch the walls, there's a brand new coat of paint. The furniture is placed. Pictures are hung. We still need window coverings, but the place looks a lot more like the home we have been waiting for.
At the end of the day, we have a kitchen, dining room, lounge, master bedroom, guest bedroom, office, 2 baths. Looks pretty good, if we must say.
Jobs have been happening also in the past week. Kimberly did not take the flying gig because she was offered work at the Special Care Baby Unit(SCBU) right at the hospital.
She also has the folks in Pain Management very interested.
Myself, I have been working as a sub in the local schools. The kids are still monkeys in pants all the way over here. Go figure. Today I worked at the Prep School. Kids were arguing over a pencil...I don't want to sit next to him...he's fat...paper airplanes.
I also have an internet research job that I got thanks to a recommendation from my newly married brother, Barry. And for that, I thank him, because it is fun and easy.
Plus I get to know alot that is happening before the rest of the world.
I think We knew Steve Irwin was dead 15 minutes before anyone else, except maybe the stingray.
We want to acknowledge Rosa M. Zack M. and Tom D. for getting on Skype. We can talk to them anytime now. Let's all jump on this while it is free.
The flowers in the vase are orchids from our yard. There is so much growing out there, we don't know what it is, but there will be constant maintenance.
If you throw down a toothpick, by the time you bend over to pick it up, there is moss growing.
The weather has taken a nice upturn as we are heading into spring. The temps are going up and everything seems to be sprouting flower buds.
By the way, since we have all our kitchen and baking tools, flour and sugar, guess who made guess whats?

it is good to get rid of all those boxes and have that moved-in feeling. Actually, I really don't know that feeling, so sorry...
