Happy 4th of July!!!
I'm writing this holiday post from my new internet in my new apartment! We had some problems getting all the electricity and gas hooked up (fridge and hot showers being quite high on our liveable list...) but they are all finally up and running!
In the meantime we were crashing chez les parents but that meant extra driving time and well, we want to stay in OUR place! So yesterday the power was turned on and our beautiful new Neufbox arrived the same day! (1 week for an internet connection? Can we say speedy? Right now I *heart* Neuf!) Today the guy came back to turn on the gas (why he couldn't do both the same day? yeah, I asked him that and he said that il faut respecter les rendez-vous.. whatever.) But now we have hot water, power and internet! And with the 3 full days I've spent scrubbing the place and organizing boxes we're almost good to go!! Tonight is the first night we'll spend in the new place after getting the keys about 10 days ago...
Just wanted to step out of my MIA shadow to say that all's well and to wish all those Americans out there a very happy 4th of July!
