We had a lot of deliveries on Friday and some non-deliveries as I had written about before but I think we have that all worked out except for the living room furniture which they can not tell us when it will get out of Brisbane. It is very very sad! We are longing for our leather lounge and recliners!!! Rod has graciously left his cane furniture but it is not the kind you can stretch out on so we brought in one of the beach recliners for Chris to stretch out in!!! It works though is not the most attractive! I have a lot of work to do on cleaning still–the house was empty for a bit plus the former tenant was a single guy…enough said. I have managed to get the kitchen fairly clean and stuff put away but am still looking for shelf paper—I guess they don’t make it here or something. Rod is coming tomorrow to put a different stove in for us—this one they can’t get the oven to work and I think he decided to do the right thing and replace it. We are going to buy a fridge and replace the one here because it is fairly old and I really want something a little bit bigger and I think we can find something that will give me a bit more room. But all in all we have done really well. We were both pretty exhausted Saturday—-we slept here Friday night and it was nice to hear the sound of the waves all night long! Last night it cooled off a bit so we shut the windows so it wasn’t quite so loud but you could still hear it.
We walked the beach a bit this morning and then made a couple of phone calls to Ohio and caught up with folks a bit. Then it was off to the Quest for our final load of stuff –mostly Chris’ clothes were left–and then we hit a couple of stores to pick up some groceries and some other things that we needed. There is just so much that you have to get when you start all over again!!! I don’t want to do this for awhile, let me tell you. It has been fun but exhausting!!!
Chris has another busy week—they all are! They are doing budgets this week I think so that is a lot of meetings. I think next weekend we are going to just do nothing!!! He needs to go to the mill in Serena so we might head down on Saturday and spend Sat and Sun doing nothing at all and then after he is done on Monday come back. I think he is pretty worn out from everything and I can totally understand because I am not even working and am worn out!!! I think there is just a lot of emotional stuff too since we are dealing with some issues with our own renters and it just kind of wears on you a bit.
Aaron and his friend Thom are coming in 2 weeks so I can’t wait for that! I really miss the boys a lot these days and it is so hard to catch Micah while he is in Sarasota but we chat on line when we can. The beauty of the internet!!! What would I do without it???
So once I recoup my energy a bit I will write more. Oh, this morning when we walked on the beach there was a dead fish that was gutted. One of the locals walked by with his dogs and we chatted a bit and he told us that was part of their fillet and release program! Hahahaha. Funny guy. That’s it for now!!!
