New House = No Internet

 Chris and I got moved in just fine on Sunday.  The Seattle end of the move was tough because we only had 3 additional people (thanks so much Carol, Ulysses and Mike) to help move all of Chris' stuff (many books and enormously heavy furniture) into a moving van that was parked across the street.  I drove the van up to Bellingham with no particular trouble where the move got much  much easier.  For one, in Bellingham we were able to drive right up to our new house.  Another extra easy part of the Bellingham move was the fact that many people showed up (thank you Mike, Echo, Greg, Amy, James, Jim, Ivy, Emily, and Karl).  We even got most of my stuff moved from Mike's Manor.

A couple of amusing little quirks about our house are there are no grounded outlets in any of the bedrooms and Chris and I both think the master bedroom door opens the wrong direction.  Other, more adorable, little quirks are the neighborhood cat that sits just outside one of our windows and the many squirrels.

A lot of my work got pushed to the wayside last week as I was preparing to move.  All of this work is rushing back right now.  Whew!  I'm looking forward to being caught up and unpacked and able to relax.  The time is just not now.  

Back to work!

No grounded outlets... wow. I've lived in houses like that. Sometimes that's an easy fix, assuming your landlord will let you.

Glad to see you're settling in.

We owe you an apology - only found out that the move was happening at around 3pm they day of, so was one less Seattle body. :( Ted had forgotten to tell me after breakfast that you folks had found a house and were moving. No wonder my karma is so damn shot lately, Chris has moved Ted and I dozens of time and there is a serious backlog of reciprocity owing. I really am sorry.

On the other hand, do you need any house hold stuff? My mom's storage locker brimmeth over with random items like kitchen things, vacuum cleaners, lamps, linnens, and so forth - so please if you are short (irons? chest of drawers?) ANYTHING let me know and I will see if it is something we might be able to provide a low to no cost...
