It's October

You don't realize how much stuff you have until you move. Then, you don't realize how much stuff you rely on until you don't have it for an extended period of time. We sent our shipment to Qatar back in the third week of July, hoping we would only be here a couple of weeks without it. Now, having been here over two months, you become grateful for a lot of small things.

We should be receiving our shipment in 2 hours and 9 minutes, not that I am counting. Leoni will get to sleep in her crib tonight, and I can't wait to cook in something other than one tiny pot or a frying pan. Yes, I have cooked spaghetti in a frying pan.

This is me with our cart of luggage the day we left.

You would think with this much stuff, that we had everything we possibly needed.

Here are the honestly looks like less now that it is here. I had already started opening a couple of boxes when I took this.


  1. You're such a trooper, cooking spaghetti in a frying pan! I hope your stuff gets there on time. It will be nice to have Leoni back in her crib and all your other things back. :)

  2. YAY for stuff! :) And it's not just stuff if you need it. Plus, I really love that feeling of order when everything is put away in its place. ...Clearly that can't happen if you don't HAVE those everythings. :)

  3. Oh man! You are a much stronger woman than I. I don't know what I'd do without my stuff for that long. Congrats on finally getting it!

  4. It is great to see a picture of you. Have fun opening your "Christmas presents". Hopefully most things will be in tact. Love and miss you!

  5. I've been wondering if the shipment had arrived yet, but I keep forgetting to ask you. Hooray! I hope it really did arrive! :)

  6. Oh my goodness you are on quite the adventure! How exciting! Love the pics and getting to hear how you are doing! Thinking of you! :)
