Default We are up and running at last!

Hello fellow CruiseMates!
It's taken all week, lots of running around and much frustration, but we are finally up and running.
We had problems with finding an internet provider with high speed that serviced our area...then we wanted a laptop, then changed our minds and just got a new flat screen, only to find it not compatible.
Tried to get a new (smaller desk for the smaller room, can't find what we want. So the big old desk and the big old computer are now crowding what will eventually become the cruise room.
I sure have missed you guys, but we have been unbelievably busy as well.
We 've been car shopping, phone shopping, changing license plates, registrations, medicare cards, insurance, etc. etc.
There are not enough hours in the day!

Today I took a break when we got home from running around, and took the dog on a 5 min. drive to a beach. She loved it! Lots of great chunks of driftwood to carry around in her mouth!
What a view, a beautiful warm, windy afternoon by the sea, and a very happy Golden Retriever, not to mention a very happy me!

I have been busy taking pictures to share,when I get time I will load them, but it may be awhile.
Hope I haven't missed anything too important or earth shattering, will have to read backwards over the past few days....

Seeya tomorrow I hope!

Am so glad you're finally ensconced in your new abode. You sound absolutely thrilled as well it should be.

We wish both you and James every happiness in your new home and can't wait to get some pictures.

Good to hear from you, Donna! Yes, it sounds like you're happy and it sounds like Emma is happy! It wasn't the regular CM without you!

Good Morning RD. I am so glad you got there safely and are settling in well. NS is such a beautiful place. I wish you much joy in your new home.

Good Mornin' R.D. Sounds like you're getting all the "little details" taken care of, which are a necessity when you move, but it also sounds like it's well worth it for the beautiful new home you and James have. Yep, we've missed you around here, and look forward to some photos.
Oh yes, one more thing. There is a "Doo-Wop" cruise sailing out of Tampa next year, and it's been suggested that it'd be a perfect spot for our "Summer Nights" performance. 8)

Glad you are happy in your new home and getting settled in now.
