The Joys of Moving to a New Country!

Good: Public transportation, food, people, outdoors, nice house, fun job, new culture, interesting museums, beautiful scenery, nice weather (so far!)

Bad: Crib getting shipped to Taiwan, being told that your stuff will be here on the 9th - when they really mean the 14th (day before Biggie Smalls is due) and that is slightly mind-boggling, since they have had our stuff since JUNE FREAKING 30TH!!! what has our stuff been doing all summer? HELLO!!!, trying to order things online in Swedish (and not being able to because your billing address is in the US).

Summary: I think that if State Dept. hadn't totally screwed up the shipping of our stuff, we wouldn't have anything to complain about. Although it is interesting to see, when you don't have much of your stuff, how much stuff you don't really need. Maybe there is a moral to this story?

I'm so sorry for your missing items experience. I can only imagine how frustrating that is. It would be bad enough on its own, but add a baby arrival on top of that and it's just awful. I wish I was there to help.

Lo, just drop the F-bomb. It's okay. You will feel SO much better. Scream it out load with a roar. (Okay, maybe make sure Rob isn't home) :-)

Mike and I always say that that patience is one of the biggest parts of being a parent and you guys are getting more than your fair share already! Cross your fingers that it'll all get there in time!

I can't believe it. Although, is it really that surprising, you're dealing with the government!

Seriously, don't you just wish people would tell you the truth? I've been looking around our house and wondering if it wouldn't be easier with less stuff. Maybe we should just give each other vacations from now on...what do you think?

Rob  – (3:17 PM)  

YES to the vacations idea. Or tickets to stuff. Usually the stuff just reminds you of memories anyway.

Lisa  – (4:56 PM)  

Can you pick up a little pack and play for biggie? Maybe Ilea has one??...

There is a moral. You only need each other.....and clean underwear! Ha!
