We're here

After 3 long days, we arrived yesterday afternoon. We met the landlord at the house, unhitched the UHaul in the garage, and headed back to base. Had a nice dinner at the Hungry Hunter before crashing at the TLF.

I was so glad Jim offered to help us by driving one of the vehicles. He drove our Yukon, towing a 6'x12' UHaul. We had more than a few steep grades to climb and descend on our journey; he handled them all like a pro. We saw a lot of beautiful scenery; the kids saw their first snow-covered mountains.

Saying goodbye on Wednesday was one of the hardest things I've ever done. I left behind probably the best friend I have ever had. Thank goodness for free long distance on cell phones, and for email!

Brian took Jim to the airport this morning and is headed to the house to start unloading the trailer. We have to get it returned today. Our household goods arrive on Monday. Not sure when we'll have internet service at the house, but I will try to get over here at least every morning until then in order to check emails.

Thank you to all who offered good wishes and prayers on our behalf. I'm off to the commissary now to pick up some food for the family. The cupboards in the TLF are woefully bare!

I'm glad you made it safely -- you have been in my prayers and thoughts. Now I hold a good thought for a smooth transition into your new home.

Welcome! Unpacking and setting up a new home is so much more fun than the packing-things-into-boxes part of a move. Enjoy "making house"! And? What is TLF? (I must be clueless).
