I have the pictures for about six posts laid out, and that doesn’t cover half of how far ahead I’ve played at this point. I’m not sure why I’m not posting. The primary thing, I think, is that moving across the country isn’t a discrete event. It’s a process. And the process is looong. I’m not playing a whole lot, but I am playing, and playing is more relaxing than writing at the moment for whatever reason.
However, I really do want to get cracking on the posts because I have this sense that you guys didn’t react to the amusing things that happened in the story, and that’s because you HAVEN’T READ IT. Yeah, I don’t always claim to be rational.
We’re settling in fairly well now. It seems like there’s an endless list of things that have to be done in addition to unpacking — transferring driver’s licenses and a whole slew of bureaucratic nonsense. Setting up new bank accounts. Blah blah. I can’t even come up with a convincing set of examples, but trust me.
Also, we had some travel and family visits hit that we’d had planned for a year, far longer than this job of my husband’s was even a glimmer in anyone’s imagination. That meant we ended up flying two weeks after getting possession of the house for a 1.5-week trip. Right now my husband’s sister, BIL, and 5-month-old nephew are visiting.
So far, we’re insanely happy here. Reality hasn’t set in quite yet, though. My husband’s job doesn’t even start until July 9. I haven’t started looking for one of my own, and I’m not even sure whether I want to do that right away or take a while to try on the full-time mom hat, since we do have the financial flexibility with his salary at the moment.
At any rate, there’s a lot more to say about the Samples, and we’ll get back to it soon! Meanwhile, you guys need to post. Look at the “last post” notes on my blogroll! This is a real drought of sims legacies, and I’m fretting that some of you won’t come back! Don’t leave me lonely!
