Tijuana. Day Five.

Thoughts for today/Things that happened today.

• Jack cried for 45 minutes after Ben left for work. He just wanted his dad.
• Ben called and said that some of our stuff (including our wedding pictures, our computer, some shoes and some furniture had been water/mold damage)
• Ben brought some yummy tacos from a taco stand for lunch. OH MY!! YUMMY!
• Ben said that we should get our internet equipment today, but it could be a few days before it works. Oh, I have been feeling disconnected without the internet.
• The boys took naps at the same time…sigh of relief.
• Is it just me or does this entire moving process (NJ-VA-UT-MEX) seems a lot more difficult than it needs to be?
• I love the sunshine and warm weather.
• I love our house.
• I love that when our sink was clogged last night, we called this morning we had two guys fixing it within an hour.
• As much as I am complaining, I am still glad we are here. (Not sure Ben feels the same.)
• Our stuff, minus the wet moldy boxes, will be coming tomorrow.
• I am 99.99% sure that I am the only one that likes moving still. We may have to rethink our 5-10 year plan.
• At least we know we will live here longer than we have ever lived anywhere since Ben and I got married.
• Even though it is really warm outside, it is freezing in our house. So cold, I am considering a “snuggie.” {Please someone- talk me out of it.}
• I love going to bed early.

Are you kidding snuggies are the best, go ahead indulge. Do they still call them a snuggie in spanish?

NO!! Not your wedding pictures! I hope that you had back ups on a cd or in another scrapbook. I have been worrying a lot lately about getting back up versions of all our photos. I need to just get started on that instead of just worrying.

Oh no, not another moving mishap! Did the crummy NJ movers drop these boxes in the Hudson along with the missing ones? I'm so sorry that some of your stuff (especially your wedding pics) got damaged. That totally sucks and has me worried what will happen to our things when we move overseas.
I've noticed that all moves come with high/low points and second guesses. Hopefully things for you guys are all up from here!
