New phone

Here’s the last picture ever taken by my old beloved iPhone-cam.  It’s my new beloved iPhone 4S: the unboxing!  I love Apple’s packaging.  And I’m not alone.  There are lots of people who save the boxes just because they’re so beautiful.  What a bunch of fan boys.  I always throw my Apple boxes away immediately after no more than five or six years.  Great Art courtesy of the (old) exclusive iPhone-cam and part of my famous Machinery and Vacation (I bought the thing on our Hawaii cruise during shore leave on Oahu) series.

Only a couple days since my last post.  Maybe I’m turning over a new leaf.  Maybe not.

I have good news and bad news.  First the good: LRN4’s car got here today, and it appears to be undamaged from its journey!  I’m delighted to have it here – now she can get wherever she wants to go whenever she wants to go there.  Now the bad news – our household goods aren’t even out of California yet.  Sigh.  That’s the price you pay for only shipping part of a truckload.  Apparently, our stuff was put on the truck first, and the driver is going to be loading his truck with other people’s stuff until Saturday.  Then he has to drive for a few days.  Then he has to unload everybody else’s stuff.  Then he’ll get to ours.  It looks like that won’t happen until the 19th or 20th.  So LRN1 will get here before our things do, a possibility we had hoped to avoid.  He’s been living in tin-roofed shacks for the past two years, though, so we’ll probably be okay.

LRN4’s been very busy in shopping mode.  Lots of stuff must be procured for the new quarters.  It was tough deciding what stuff to bring, what we could do without, and what we wanted to replace.  Several things ended up in the “replace” bucket.  She’s been buying towels, rugs, shower curtains, food, can openers, measuring cups, potato peelers, and tons of other stuff.  It’s looking homier around here all the time.

Only eight more days before LRN1’s home!  Tomorrow he’ll start his last week.  Stay focused, LRN1!  But get ready to be home too!

It’s snowing!  Started in the early afternoon.  There’s probably an inch or so on the ground, although it doesn’t seem to be sticking to the pavement.  Maybe that’ll happen overnight.  Might be a slower drive than usual tomorrow morning.  Fortunately, I have all-wheel-drive.  Also this thing which tells time.

And I have about a million (scientific estimate) LDS Tools emails to get to, so I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this shocking food violence news: grandma bacon assault!

See you tomorrow.

    I think I’m getting tired of shopping. I’m not an avid shopper to begin with, but it was kind of fun at first. Maybe it’s partly because we’re getting to the harder to decide things to buy.

    Its good to find the website again, and knowing that i keep forgetting it is making me feel like a not so good friend. I miss you guys very much.
