It’s been a hot minute and I miss you so so SO much and I’d like to say, oh, hey, I’m posting every day from now on, but I’m in the midst of some Really Intense Shit ™ and it’ll most likely be another few days or weeks or months before I post again.
I adopted this guy.
Totally couldn’t land on one name so his full name is Maximillian Confuscious Stan Leopald Furrington Genevieve Ulrik Sebastian the Third but his nickname is FujiSan.
We officially sold our Dutch house back in mid-July but our stuff was removed from our house the first week of August but our flight to America was 07 August but our American house closing was 29 August but we moved into it a week later but all our stuff has been making its way across the pond, to an American pond, going through customs, sitting in storage, and waiting for transport scheduling.
And today it arrives.
This afternoon between five and eight local time and I kind of don’t believe it.
That it’s taken this long.
That it’s finally here.
That we’re going to have our bed and our table and our Swedish chairs and our Swedish chest and our tapestries and our china and ALL OUR STUFF.
This is one of the very first oh so American activities I totally signed First Minion up for as soon as the sign up sheet went round – during the month of October, kids in each grade get a surprise Halloween bucket full of treats – and since I signed up so quickly, we were one of the first.
I think I got more joy out of it than First Minion.
And the twins.
“I wish you a great Halloween full of fun, mystery, and excitement. From a fellow Bingham Farms 1st Grader!”
And then the Add New and / or Edit Post were broken.
It’s just been super frustrating and with The Actual Move happening, well, blogging was way WAY down on the priority list.
I’ll catch up over the next few days, but … yeah… LOTS of music videos.
I can’t wait to tell you about closing on the house with a power of attorney for my partner. Or how our brand new basement flooded. Or how I’m still mourning Zoe. Or how I REALLY want a corgi these days.
