We're in our new home, and quite happy with it, and have increased sympathy for anyone who moves. We've done almost nothing social yet, and I am becoming much too familiar with the way Ikea designers think. When everything's unpacked and there's a place for everything, we'll be less asocial—leaning toward prosocial, not antisocial, we hope.
The two frustrations are the cold white stuff from the sky and delays in getting internet. We signed up for the citywide service, only to learn on installation day that we're in a dead spot, probably due to being surrounded by trees and tall stucco homes. So we've signed up for DSL, and Centurylink takes a surprisingly long time to get around to throwing a switch—we should have home internet next week.
