Yuuki loves to sit and lay on the steps leading to the spa
Culture shock - ordered this YESTERDAY and it arrived today. We don't even have a mailbox key yet.
Michael and I ran to the post office to pick up our mail. We had a HUMONGOUS stack....turns out they were to eight different people who supposedly lived at this address. Hmmm. We DID get a few fliers to the current resident and I'm counting that as mail to our new home. ::snort::
When we got home the kids took all the seats out of the van. We had spent the day packing. Yuuki seemed to know something was up.
It was. We took her to visit her new vet. We really liked the group of ladies and the vet loved that Yuuki was just in from Japan.
Vegan meals like this too many more days and I'm bound to get fluffy!
We stopped by Sam's and loaded a futon and two recliners into the back of the van. The timing is odd with us leaving...but we had decided a futon would be good to have when our parents visit so they don't have to navigate the stairs. Bre is due ANY TIME and will need to sleep somewhere tonight.
Arielle got really silly. We expected Bre about 8:00 p.m. It is now 9:19 p.m. She called at 7:45 and was two hours out.
Yep, the silliness led to this....

I had commented to Mandy that I hoped the younger two would love all the boxes when we unpack but may be too old to enjoy on our next move......look at this...."Mom, I made a sword and a shield!"
Arielle tries out the Grannie Bed - note all the furniture is gigantic and I can't touch the floor any longer. I'm not in Japan any longer.
See the pile of boxes......they are dreaming of what they're going to build. Zander (Alex) asked if he can bring some on the trip. They are going to love all the boxes in a couple of weeks. ::snort::
Still waiting for BreAnne to arrive. Moving cardboard to garage, bracing windows, packing suitcases...waiting for Bre.
Arielle found this online and the dog barking sounded so familiar.....we shared on FB but I know some aren't on FB. We are thinking this may be fun to do.....we haven't yet....but we HAVE found great humor in this as we face our challenge with dog noise....and I HAVE done the "hey, hey, HEY," thing when Yip and Yap are getting loud...and they quiet down to listen. It makes me smile.
When we get home, we'll make more of an effort to get to know our neighbors. I'm sure that will help. They HAVE turned the light off that was shining in our windows.
I figure they are having to put up with new kid noise in the back yard - they probably think the dog noise levels it all out. Maybe it does. As long as the dogs go inside before 10 - 11 p.m.
