Stage One of Our Move is Complete

Friday evening we moved out of Apartment 17--with the help of some of the elders quorum--our stuff to a garage of an empty house on the property of where we will be moving into sometime in August. Today, we are living in the apartment of a friend our ours who are out of town for the summer on an internship. They where generous enough to let up take over until we get the okay from our new semi-landlords to move in.

For those of you who had our land line phone number that started with (360)...we have cancelled that service and we only be using our cell phones.

Saturday we spent cleaning our apartment. Because of the flood damage back from November 2006--there's more mold to deal with around windows and baseboards. (Gross--I know.)

We finished and went over to a new good friends' (Wendy, Chris, Christina, & Keith De'eres) house for dinner with their family. It was a BLAST!!! We not only had a tasty dinner with grilled vegetables from their garden--we also had an entertaining evening talking at the table...long after the meal was finished getting to know them better. My face hurt from smiling and laughing so much. It was a nice way to end the day.

Then on Sunday we went to church and enjoyed some great lessons and speakers (Ward Conference). Later on, we went to another friend's house (Mike and Pam Dickey) for a BBQ. We got to make our own pork kabobs, complete with fresh garden picked vegetables like zucchini. After our meal we walked down to the beach, then back again for an ice cream feast. WOW.

Then we stopped by our apartment to pick up the last few things inside, and swung by our other friend's house (Shannon, Abe, and Auroa Dickerson) who are moving to B.C., Canada. Shannon was one of my teacher's at the LDS MTC in Provo, UT, who happened to be in my ward in Bellingham when I got off my mission. We'll miss them very much!!

Then today, I went to work. Right now...Shaun's at work in Mt. Vernon. It's odd being in someone else's apartment alone. I feel welcome but lonely at the same time. I will do my best to stay busy. I'm going out with a friend (Emily Pool) tomorrow to celebrate our summer birthdays tomorrow. I look forward to that.

That's all for now!
