Slowly but surly we are getting all settled in. We set up Jack's room on Sunday, but only so that we could use it as storage while we get situated in the other rooms. Keith is flabbergasted at the amount of stuff this kid has and he is not even here yet. I am hitting a language barrier when it comes to finding a local diaper service, hopefully the interpreters on base will be able to help me out. I am using the computers at the local library on base for now, but we should have Internet set up by next week. August 13 to 16 is the Bon Festival, an important Japanese tradition to honor ancestors. Most Japanese people take summer vacation during this time including our property manager who is the liaison to set up the last of our utilities.
We hope everyone is having enjoyable summer weather unlike here where it is hot and humid. I categorize it as stupid hot and I hate to say that I am getting adjusted but it doesn't seem to be as overwhelming as it was when we first got here. Having fantastic air conditioning in our house and car definitely helps.
Four weeks and five days...but we won't mind if Jack comes a week early, Mommy is ready to be normal again and we want Daddy to have some time before he's off for deployment.
