We are here!

We are here in South Bend and moderately established (which means 75% of the stuff is unpacked and I have attended a playgroup). However, sad to say, our internet service is dial-up for the time being, which makes blogging quite a bit more time consuming. We have worked with three different companies, looking for some high-speed internet love, but apparently we have fiber-optic phone lines (wouldn't you think that was better?), and we've had three failures. It looks like cable internet is our only hope.
When I'm brave, I will attempt to post some before-and-after shots of the main floor of our house. The kitchen looks MUCH better, and we are making progress on the family room. The living room mostly just looks bare.
Tomorrow, a friend here (Kelly) and I will be scouting out the Notre Dame Garage Sale. I'm not hard core enough to get in line at 5 a.m., but if the pickins' are good, I might be that ambitious next year.

Sounds like you guys are making a lot of progress. Unpacking is such a long process. I can't wait to see pictures of your house. The garage sale sounds interesting. Hope you found some good deals. I love finding a great deal, which is really hard to come by here in Toledo.

Glad you made it! And, sorry about the internet. It must be a tough break -- espeically after free high speed in toledo! hope you do get a chance to post some pictures

I know from personal experience that Kelly is a hardcore yard saler, or at least hung out with some for quite some time in a former life. I am so incredibly jealous. Can I come too? Good, I'll be there at 5 am, sharp.

Look, we let you guys move away, but do NOT add insult to injury by becoming silent on the blog scene. WE JUST CAN'T TAKE IT IN OUR WEAKENED STATE!
