Well, I'm sorry to say that my craptastic hair has returned. However, this time it's due to the crummy weather and not any appliances that I shorted out.
It has rained or snowed here all weekend long. I actually welcome the snow over rain, because the rain is steady, cold and completely bone soaking. Not pleasant I assure you.
This morning Sean and I had our lease signing over at housing bright and early. It took nearly two hours to complete all of it. The housing lady said mainly because the apartment we picked is brand-new, which requires a little bit more of paperwork.
It was quite a scene in the office. Picture Sean and I, who don't speak much Italian, unless you count my mastery of the Italian numerals from 1-10, the alphabet and the all important, "I'd like a table for two" among other things. Not exactly a mastery of the Italian language. Then picture our landlord, who as far as I know doesn't speak a lick of English. It was quite interesting.
Our government furniture and appliances are being delievered Friday and hopefully our household goods and unaccompanied baggage will be along soon. I actually went to Transportation the other day to inquire about them, but all the lady could tell me was that they were delayed. It was hard not to be sarcastic, I mean really? They're late? I never would have guessed. I guess they were scheduled to arrive the 26 of January. I'm hoping they aren't too late. I kind of want to get my stuff.
I'm busy all this week trying to get the utilities set up for our apartment. Tomorrow is the electric company, Wednesday is the house inspection, Thursday is the gas company. Don't worry about the language barrier though, they are kind enough to send a translator with you to help out with the process. Thank God!
I have some big news! Sean and I got a laptop. I must confess I am very behind in technology. This is our first laptop, but I'm so excited. It's a Toshiba and quite honestly it's just awesome. I can't get a good wireless signal in our hotel though,so I'm still having to visit the library to check the Internet, but it's nice to finally have a laptop!
Oh...and I'm happy to say that Sean has stopped with the muffin-top nickname. I guess telling him that the blogging world thought he was a jackass for calling me that helped immensely. He even cooked me dinner Friday night and took me bowling. Don't even ask about bowling. I honestly don't have that many gutterballs, maybe 3 and yet I still can't break 100.
Hope your Monday is great!
