I’ve been feeling highly uninspired about potential posts for this blog lately, which is not to say that we haven’t been doing anything interesting. I promise to get back to more regular posts soon, but here are a couple of highlights of the past month:

– Danny finished grad school! He’s done and graduated and after seven years of on-and-off school, it’s really and truly done!
– our stuff got here! I realize that I made this the subject line of this post, but it’s so worth repeating. It got here on Friday (the 26, so almost 4 months to the day from when it was packed out for those of you keeping count), and it appears that other than one or two very minor fragile items nothing was damaged.
– Stephen has started on solid foods, which is a messy but highly entertaining process. We discovered today that he loves zucchini, which I think is really pretty awesome.

In terms of coming attractions, in the next month we will have two separate sets of visitors (insert here another little prayer of thanksgiving that our stuff is here before our houseguests) and we’re going to take advantage of our newly functional gas chip, which allows us to buy gas without having to pay the rather prohibitively steep taxes. If you think it’s rough buying gas back home at 4 or 5 dollars a gallon, imagine paying $3 a LITER and you’ll understand why we’ve been minimizing our driving for the past few months…
