Settling In

The big news is-our furniture is here!!! It was so exciting to see the movers bring in familiar items that add to our comfort here. It was like Christmas morning for W, who had totally forgotten about all of his cool toys over the summer. There are still boxes everywhere and alot of disorganization, but it is starting to feel like home.

The other exciting news is that our car should be released to us in a couple of weeks. This is defintely a best case scenario situation, as sometimes the Turks hold cars for months. Until then, we will have a mix of rental cars, bicycles and walking to get us around. I rode a bike for the first time in several years today. Add to that the fact that it was a bike made for my very tall friend-and I looked about as goofy and ridiculous as I possibly could riding to the commissary.

Speaking of my friend Wendi, she has been incredible in helping us to get settled. She watched W today so I could unpack in peace and lended me the aformentioned bicycle to get to the commissary. We have been e-mailing for months, and have bonded quickly here. She is truly an answer to prayer!


  1. Would have loved to see you on that bike! I missed talking to you today. I'll try again in the morning. Hope the house is coming together!

  2. I am proud of you!!!! Keep on riding!
