Hi everyone!

Just popping in here...I see I've managed to lose two followers since I was last here. Who can blame them? I can't ever post! I have tons of photos to share, and have to wait until I have internet on at the house to do so!!!! So ticked off!!!!

We ordered phone and internet on July 13th, and were told it could take up to three weeks. That was yesterday!!!! Got an email saying it will now be on on August 21st!! Seriously? Our next door neighbors have had theirs for a week now! The grid is up and running...I just don't have the modem!! It's coming via German mail, BUT they won't ship it to me until about three days before my "turn on date". However we've already been billed and paid our first month's "service" and hook up fee. So 100 euro later and still nothing!!!

I'm really lost without it too. No blog, no skype, no facebook, no emails!! Nada!!!!! *cuss words*

The house is coming along. It's been slow going as things were packed so poorly and I'm still without many things and we're running out of boxes. Did all these "missing" things get put into "craft" boxes??? I still have a ton of those, lol! Our big screen TV was broken, and we've had many other damages as well. Should be quite a hefty bill we're sending to the movers!!! We got a smaller flat screen TV here at the PX and the picture is gorgeous, if smaller. (And we paid cash for it -  no charging at all!) Thank God for our neighbor who helped us figure out how to set it up so we actually get TV channels, etc to work, lol!!!! There's still so much to do, unpack, find a place for everything, decorate, clean....all while still cooking, doing laundry, etc. For some reason it seems to be taking forever!!!! Thomas says I'm making good progress but it doesn't feel like it.

Going to the local fest tonight, and taking it a bit easy this weekend. I'm tired!! All that walking up and down all our stairs is getting my butt and legs in shape, lol! Next Friday we're going to IKEA, so my goal is to have everything out of boxes so I'll really know what we'll need! Our first trip here!! I need to get OUT of the house!!!!

Well Thomas is ready to I'll sign off for now! I soooo miss you guys!!! Please hang with me for a bit longer! I get sad when people stop following me!!! Someday (SOON!!!!) I'll have my internet back again and will have lots to share then!! BIG HUGS!!!!!!

Our movers would fill a box with books, put ONE stuffed animal on top and label it 'childs room.' Ugh. Hugs from Italy!!

So frustrating to be without internet, but hopefully it won't last too much longer!

Well... you must look at the good side of not having internet... I am sure you've gotten so much more done without it! LOL! :) ... We'll wait for you!

Wow, your big screen tv was broken in the move? That really sucks. :(

Hope the internet gets connected for you soon. I pity the people who will be on the other end of your phone conversations concerning the delay.

(do you cuss in German or English?)

Oh dear!!! That sucks!! Miss you and I hope you get your internet before Aug. 21st. That is awful!
And for those two followers you lost.,.well good riddance. Friends hang in together no matter what!
Patiently cheering you and waiting.

Those two were probably the lamest two....if 'lamest' is even a word. ;)
Happy unpacking. I hope your Internet comes around soon!

Hi Jeannie, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

That sucks; especially about the TV getting broken and paying for internet you don't have access to!

Don't you have a phone with internet capabilities? If you do, then you can have some internet access at least...

Christina said...

Missing you bunches! Can't wait to see more of your adventures.

I sure hope everything is going well over there in Germany. *hugs*
