And more piles to come!
Our first shipment of household goods arrived yesterday. I loved my house so much more when it was EMPTY! ;)
People kept saying that opening your TMO shipment would be "like Christmas." I feel sorry for those people. Could their Christmases really possibly be so dismal and depressing? Yesterday's shipment was more like a really bad inheritance or something. Maybe tomorrow's shipment will be more like Christmas...after all, I will be reunited with my yarn, books, clothes & scrapbook stuff! The shipment that came yesterday was David's from Aviano/storage so I had the movers put most of it in the garage and in an extra bedroom. He can open it all up when he gets here. Which, really, is the least he could do, seen as how I found the house, and will be unpacking, washing and putting away all of the other stuff...including FORTY-THREE drinking glasses in his shipment yesterday. Our Okinawa shipment is arriving tomorrow. And our stuff will be battling for position within the kitchen!
Luckily, my across-the-street neighbor introduced herself this morning (I met her husband yesterday) and said that she's trying to organize a street-wide garage sale in 2 weeks. She said, "Should I bother passing you a leaflet or will you be too busy?" I told her I'd love a leaflet! I have a lot of (David's) stuff that I'm willing to part with, ha ha. I'm sure some of mine can go too, although most of the stuff we sold at the Chibana Flea Market back in Dec. was mine!
I also got my sweet new ride yesterday! And today marks my 3 week "anniversary" of being here. I'm pretty happy with all that I've managed to get accomplished, although I still don't know how to find my way to base & back home without the help of Debbie's "TomTom"/Garmin. I'll be looking to purchase my own in May. I've already spent too much money for April!
Well, I'm going to head to the commissary before leaving base for the day. Planning to make some cookies for my neighbors, tomorrow's movers and some of my other good helpers!
