Yay! Our things arrived from PA and all three of us are so excited! You should have seen how excited Kevin was when he spied his fishing tackle box. And when he caught sight of his totes from Afghanistan and Germany - he about went through the roof!
It was really like Christmas for all of us. We have a LONG way to go to get everything unpacked, but each box reminds us of things from the past. It was just so neat opening everything, but it was also so tiring. It is really going to take quite a while to get all of this finished, but we will be here for over a month yet so we have the time.
And today we are finally filling the pool. There have been quite a few phone calls from me to the pool company because it was supposed to be done over a month ago and I kept getting told it would be done by this date and then that date and so on and so forth. I was so frustrated because I kept getting Kevin excited only to have to let him down again.
I hated to say anything as the pool guy drastically reduced the price because he called all of the vendors and got parts either free or at a major price break, but still...Kevin was getting so upset each time they told us it would be done and it wasn't.
BUT - it is finally being filled. It should be done by tomorrow afternoon and Kevin was already in it today. Here is evidence, lol:
He was just so excited!
And did you notice the palm tree leaning on our neighbor's fence? Yeah. I was pretty upset about that when we came home from PA. I had called the company a couple times before we left to have it tightened down before it was even near their fence, but my requests were ignored. It was so frustrating to have to meet the neighbor because our tree was on their fence. They were cool with it though. Lucky us.
Ok. Off to relax for a little bit before hitting my bed.
First 2 from the Nov kit!
