wow. it's been a really long time since i've posted and i do apologize.
it wasn't until yesterday that our dsl was finally turned on. it was supposed to be on the 19th...but there was some mistake. apparently. i do not understand though. they just had to turn. it. on. there was no service call from a technician. i did not have to wait around the house from 8am to 12pm or 1pm to 6pm. nothing. just suddenly the light was green and i could get on. ah, the mysteries of life.
but now that all that is taken care of, i feel settled in to our new apartment. we are only a few miles away but it feels much further. we even went back to visit our "old life" this weekend. it hadn't changed much.
i'll post more later, i'm still low on energy these days. 4 months and counting...
i just went down for the mail. my secret pal is the best. thank you, thank you! i can't post pictures yet. we got a new camera and i haven't figured out how to connect it to the computer (or even found the cords). will do soon when i can. but i can say that the lace pattern was a really thoughtful touch. and it's nothing for grandma. it's so cute. everything was perfect.
