We're here.

We're a day late on internet connection due to a busted ethernet card, but now we're back in the saddle. Oh, and we've also discovered that our dishwasher is somehow not hooked up to any sort of water supply, and our shower doesn't have any hot water. And none of our furniture can fit through the doorway into our rec room. It's been a busy and fairly annoying two days.

But it's eight days before Christmas and the temps are still in the 70s. So we're lovin' that.

Also Charlie is completely freaked out by the move. He won't leave our side, which is unusual for the dog who hates to be touched. But he spent the first day walking around the house crying, so at least we're past that.

Five moves in four and a half years of marriage. Sheesh.

Wow. I can sort of empathize. In one two year stretch I moved in with my fiance, started a new career, got married, bought a house and had a child. Of course at no time was there the possibility of anyone shooting at either one of us.

And at no time did we have dry clean only dishes!

Each house you own from now on will be an adventure of "what's wrong with this one". I'm so glad you're all in. I hope you can stay there a while.

No hot water in the shower... OMG - that's nearly a deal breaker - I'm hoping for your sake it's easily fixed.

In any case things should start to settle down now. We'll make that the Christmas wish for you two.

I feel your pain. We just PCS and I don't think one thing has gone right since we moved in. But we are all here for the holidays so that is a blessing. I hope you enjoy your holidays in your new home.
