Hi there!

Remember me??? Still no internet, but it's "promised" for next Tuesday morning. We.Shall.See. Thomas has called so many times, and I've even had my German neighbor call for us yesterday. We have all the hardware installed and the pass codes. We're just waiting for someone to come out to the house to turn it on. The whole process has been beyond ridiculous!!!

I've been working hard on the house and it's almost complete! We will be hanging up pictures and curtains this weekend! My stamping studio is finished!!!!! I sat in my chair and just looked around my amazing new room for about a half hour, lol! I didn't know what to play with first! I can't wait to show it to you all!!!

Bella's 8th birthday is tomorrow!!!! We're going to IKEA in the morning, and then will just have a quiet, family day together. Bella has requested Chinese food for dinner, so we will be dining out in our lovely downtown restaurant. There are so many cute places to go here!!!

Thomas is loving his job and it's really great having him so happy with his work, after two years of hell in Italy. He finds it very fulfilling!

Bella starts school on the 27th. We went to the orientation this morning. She will be riding the bus this year!! No more walking in bad weather!!!! I hope she can focus this year....I hate getting bad reports about her!

So I guess that's about it. I've been cooped up at the house, getting everything just so, but not really anything else. REALLY looking forward to heading to Nurnemburg tomorrow!!! Yes, I will be taking tons of photographs!!!

Have to run....Hopefully I will see you on Tuesday!!! HUGS!!!

Happy Birthday to Bella!

The good thing about her taking the bus to school (and being in Germany this year) is no more crazy drivers that try to run you over! LOL

Happy Birthday to Bella!
Can hardly wait to see pictures--especially of your new craft room!
See you Tuesday. :)

Wow you were in Italy for two years ... that went by fast! I bet your stamping studio is fantastic. Bella's birthday sounds really nice. The IKEA (we don't have one) sounds really nice. The whole thing--except for the internet issue--sounds like it has gone very smoothly. I hope that the school year is fantastic!
