Stew is still finding the 5:30am start difficult and is currently on a 6 day week. However, next week has a 4 day weekend for thanksgiving so we need to think of something to do. Maybe a road trip is in order.
Stew is missing bacon sandwiches with HP sauce (and real cadbury's chocolate). Bexx is missing Lancashire cheese, normal bread (that doesn't cost $4 and taste of sugar) and the gas hob. Jacob misses Melissa and Sun Pat peanut butter.
Bye bye for now and we hope all is well in the UK.

So, I am having a chilled out brew in Starbucks before going to Lowe's (a great big version of B&Q) to buy a mop and a curtain pole. Woo!

Our new car is fab, we took it for a spin yesterday to check out a daycare for Jakey. I doubt anywhere will compare well with Brookdale but he seemed to like it. We just need to get some more immunisations to bring him in line with the US. That'll be fun!
We are waiting in this morning again for the telly man, hopefully they will turn up this time! Later we are going to cross the scariest bridge in the world and visit a sculpture garden.

Bexx and Stew are going to go and get some much needed winter coats before the snow starts falling!
It is nice to see the autumn leaves falling and the trees in all the shades of red and yellow.

I will take some pics of the house later, but it is still a bit of a mess so you will have to look past it!

Just a really really quick one to say Hello to everyone, and to apologise - now we are in the house, we have no internet until it is connected, hopefully next week. We have been building furniture like crazy and the house is starting to look "some bit like". Longer posts next week!

Hopefully one of us will update later with some pictures of inside the house!

We had a great morning yesterday, Jacob and I. First we went to Doskey Park, which Jacob loved, all though the temperature had dropped sharply so it was a bit chillier than expected!
We also went to Target, which was great! I bought all Jacob's bedding and towels, including a gorgeous "comforter", which seems to be the alternative to duvets here. It has appliqued corduroy cars all over it, with matching sheets etc. There was a car shaped bean bag but I resisted, however, I think I will be going back as it was just so gorgeous! I will post pics later, I have batteries now but someone (who shall remain nameless) has made the lens all cloudy.
However we got back to the hotel, and Jakey didn't seem well at all and was very hot. As it was Friday, I asked Stew to let me know how to go to the doctors' here. He didn't know so we wound up at the hospital eventually. They were really great and so much speedier than the UK, we were in and out within an hour, without the mysterious waits for who knows what that you get in the UK. Jacob is now on the mend with antibiotics, Tylenol and Medrin! I'd taken the Calpol to show them what I'd been giving him but apparently "Paracetemol" doesn't translate!
Finally, today we are going to the house again, we are not sure what for but we are hoping to be able to measure up and perhaps if we are lucky get access. If so, we will be moving in, so fingers crossed! Worst case scenario is still Monday so either way it isn't so bad.
Anyway today is the first day this week Stew has been able to have the yummy breakfast in the hotel so we'd best get up and at 'em! We will update later, and hopefully be on Skype later.
