Boy, I'm tired! It's Monday - our first full day as Minnesotans. We arrived yesterday around lunch and then spent a couple of hours at our new house. The kids picked their rooms and saw where everything is going to go. They love the yard and the playground at the school across the street.
Today, the kids and I spent the afternoon at the house working and playing. There were a lot of things that the previous owner left, so I spent the day going through that and cleaning cabinets. I think the last 3 days of driving are hitting me today.
Our furniture should arrive tomorrow afternoon or Wednesday - almost a week earlier than we were originally told. I guess that's good news! I just feel like I have to hurry and get things all cleaned up so that the house is ready for our furniture and stuff...Maybe not - life is so much slower here, I think I'll just take my time and do it right the first time. Oh yeah - but I do remember to call and have my washing machine delivered - OOPS!
I've met a couple of our neighbors already. There is an older couple who lives behind us. They moved to Adrian in 1960. They were very nice and helpful, which is good because I didn't even know where the post office is! I also met another neighbor who lives a couple of streets over. She was waiting for the kids she watches to come out of school today, so she was just standing in front of our house. She was also very nice.
I'm sorry if this post doesn't seem very coherent! Maybe it's because my brain is tired. I'll try to do better in a couple of days!
