some tidbits

Here is my happy little traveler, who praise God, was a great little trooper during our 9 hour trip!
We made 2 stops to eat & let him get out and stretch a little. He slept probably about 4 hours of the trip & otherwise played with his toys. He got fussy a couple of time right before our stops, but I can't complain at all!

And here are some pics of our 1st floor (the only floor that's pretty close to normal at this point!)

the card table is currently serving as my "stove"! We haven't had a chance to get one yet. I do have a plug-in skillet & a camping stove, sAlign Lefto it's amazing what you can actually make between those two. The only thing I really miss is my oven, but I can use my friend's anytime I would need to, so it's actually not as big a deal as I thought it was going to be. :)
thanking the Lord for providing a free fridge for us!
I don't think we could have done without that!
Living Room...
yep, blue carpet and all! The color is not too horrible. It doesn't really match, but I guess I've learned to ignore it. :) The thing that annoys me most about it is that is shows EVERY little speck that falls on it! I currently want to vacuum about twice a day! Hopefully we'll be able to get a large tan area rug that will cover most of the living room and then I won't have to worry about it looking speckled all the time!
And the G-man update...
took the plunge and started him on a little cereal! He's doing pretty good and swallowing it down pretty well. Though he is more interested in chewing on his spoon & bib right now! He can't figure out his bib & it kind of drives him a little crazy. :)

Lots to share about our new city, neighborhood, church, people we are meeting, etc...But I guess that will have to wait for now!
We are currently getting internet in one window of our 3rd floor, so it's not the most convenient, but we sure are thankful as it beats going to the corner coffee shop every day! We are going to wait to get our internet hooked up until Andrew gets his job - hopefully soon!
He has been out pounding the streets, applying online, and putting as much time as possible into his searching. So we are praying that God will provide soon!
We certainly already miss our beach friends, but are thankful to be here and enjoying our new & different life!
