We are still on “holiday” as far as school goes. This is our fourth week off. This means that either July or August just got absorbed into the school year. Fine with me. We are hopefully starting back up Monday, Lord willing. I am going to try and get the apartment completed so we can cook and eat at home, do laundry (the apartment plugs are three-prong and we’re having trouble finding a converter), and get school started again. So far, after two solid days of unpacking, we are nearing a light at the end of the tunnel. Sorry for the delay in “checking in” with you blog-reading buddies of mine… but our internet connection just got enabled this afternoon, and my husband’s computer is up, but mine is not. Therefore, I’m just typing a quick message and won’t be adding links or pinging anyone… sorry Technorati, Homespun Bloggers, etc.
We spent almost all of our paycheck and a few hundred from mom on our trip to Texas, but it was sure nice to see friends, eat at our favorite restaurants, and get a few missed belongings from storage. We have pretty much all we need to survive here out of state now… aside from silverware, which so far, has not turned up in the box hunt. I have two kitchen boxes left, and then we’ll be making a trip to Wal-Mart. We have only had to buy a floor lamp (seems older apartment buildings don’t have lighting in bedrooms or living rooms?) and a couple of shower curtains so far. It is nice to have all the other items we need to save us money. Hopefully by next month, we can start to try and recuperate from the expenses we’ve been accruing. I don’t see a Texas trip in the near future for Thanksgiving or Christmas. That will be difficult since it is the first year we’ve ever been away from family, but hopefully it will help us in our goal of getting completely debt free in a year or two.
I hope to be back blogging on a more regular basis soon. Until then, I appreciate you stopping in to check on me! God bless and Happy Thanksgiving… we have so many reasons to be thankful!
