Waitin’ on a sofa . . .

I think one of the worst parts of moving is waiting around for people to show up!!  Our sofa is supposed to be delivered today between 12:30 and 3:30 pm.  It’s 2:35 and I’m guessing they will show up somewhere around 4:00!! 

It is beautiful and sunny outside – we can think of lots of other things we would love to be doing right now!  Kevin is diligently trying to get my computer back up and running.  It made the move cross country okay, but then we moved it from upstairs to downstairs and when we plugged it in it sounded like an airplane taking off!!  We turned it off and then turned it back on and there it was . . . the blue screen of death 😦 

If it’s not one thing, it’s another!!  Luckily, Kevin is a bit of a computer wiz, and at least it will turn on now!  All of my data is there, but I may not have all of the cool programs that I had.  Bummer.  It feels like I have been on the laptop for days looking for a job.  I have applied to lots of them and I know it takes time.  Hopefully, someone will see that I have skills (I don’t think it looks very good on my resume that I spent the last 7 years walking dogs and doing yoga!!)  I’m thinking positive thoughts!!!

We got to see some friends this week.  It seems that just about everyone has a 5 year old and a toddler!!!  We are just so happy to be back!!  It almost feels like we never left!!

This weekend we are going to get out and take some photos of what we love about Portland.  We went to Saturday Market last weekend, and I forgot my camera!!  My bad.

We have both grown tired of watching TV from our beach chairs and are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the sofa!!!  I took a couple of yoga classes at a studio nearby this week, but the classes were just a little too gentle – I at least like to break a sweat!!!  I’m sure I needed a gentle class, but what I wanted was someone to challenge me!!  I have a whole room dedicated to yoga upstairs – hooray!  And Kevin has a “man cave” downstairs complete with leather chair and tv (what else could he possibly need??).  Cali has settled in and stopped mutilating herself, the kitties are all good, all we need now are a couple of JOBS!!!!!   We’ll keep you posted!
