We finally have internet! It took nearly all day yesterday, but we have it! They had to run new wires from the house to the street.
So, we arrived in Vegas one week ago Saturday.
We spent the next few days unpacking. We have everything out of boxes
and in the house. We are finishing putting everything someplace. We even
have most of the pics on the walls. I'll take some pics today or
Also had to get a conversion kit because we have a natural gas spigot on the side of the patio.
So we are getting settled in. Nice to start cooking regular meals instead of eating out of getting fast food.
The house is really starting to feel like a home. We still have to get Craig a new puter, and Craig wants a new washer and dryer. The pair we have is very basic, and the dryer constantly turns off before the clothes are dry. We think it's over heating but the duck work looks clear, so maybe just a bad dryer. Then next week, I'll contact a few landscapers to get estimates on redoing the back yard.
The hardest part of retirement is not knowing what day it is. With out a daily routine, every day is just another day. We went out yesterday to the grocery store, and was surprised at how busy it was. Then we remembered it was Saturday. :-) And it doesn't feel like a holiday weekend. I don't get any extra time off work. I feel a little cheated. But I'm sure we'll adjust. :-)
So we're here, still getting settled, but are liking it. We've walked just about every morning, walking different routes around the neighborhood trying to get to know all the different street names.
So that's it for now. I'll post more when I get some time.
