Joe and Tawny's Excellent Adventures

We're moving in - and up

We got our household goods on Friday and spent Saturday driving around looking for a couch and another table. See the movers lost one of our couch cushions, so we need a new couch - oh and they tore the back and side of the couch worse than it already was. Also, to their credit, they bent the legs and scratched up my Great-Grandfather's dresser, then they gouged, scuffed and scratched up my Uncle Ron's Cradle (one of my most prozed posessions). Today we found a box and when I opened it I found a previously unopened box of Computer software. It had been torn open and the software was gone, in its place was a bunch of junk from a drawer we had in the kitchen - nice. The door of our entertainment center is bent, the TV has a crack on the housing portion of it, my cedar chest is scraped up, we are missing pieces of Ceilidha's toy box and some of our books are bent out of shape - and we've only opened up half the boxes. I know we will get reimbursed for it all, but knowing the Army, it will take a stack of paperwork 6 inches high and 18 months to get it done.

The good news is that last night we checked out of our Temporary living facility and last night was the first night we spent in the new house. It isn't bad if you don't mind being extremely cold, listening to a church bell ring for 2 straight minutes every 15 minutes - oh, and we live right under a flight path, so planes fly a few hundred feet over our roof as they get ready to land at Ramstein. Oh, and did I mention the ceilings before - or the fact that they don't have shelves, cupboards, drawers, closets or pantrys? I'm sure I did.

Joe is in an EMT refresher course this week, so it is up to Ceilidha and I to get things unpacked - and with Ceilidha's help I think in the next month we will have it done. Without her help we may have it done in a week or two!

For those of you who don't know the Oakley Valley Art's Council is putting on "West Side Story" and my sister Lisa is playing one of the leads - She is "Anita" and Ian, my little Bro, is playing a gangster named "A-Rab." They are both going great and opening night is this week and the play will run for 3 weeks I think. So, if anyone of you happen to be around Oakley, Idaho and want to see my family in an AWSOME play - showtimes are at 8 p.m., so check them out. And Good Luck Lisa and Ian!!!
