When it rains it pours!

I was trying to think of something to write today...you know, to start the week off with a new post.
Something inspirational, or something funny...
something serious or some photos..

Well, sometimes it just falls into your lap!

My shipment from Rio is finally coming tomorrow!
Well, tomorrow, my time...that would be Tuesday around lunch time...middle of the night for most of you in the USA.

I am having some walls painted today. I was not really expecting to have the shipment without any notice. (not that I am complaining! It just would have been nice to have some forewarning so that I could have painted a little earlier!)
But seriously, I do not care about wet walls or unfinished paint...
what I care about is that my "stuff" is finally here. My carpets, my kitchenware, our photo books, the kids games and toys, dolls, sheets and comforters, scrapbooking items to fill my time, paintings for my walls...

ah, I could go on and on, but let's just stop here. I will be back in a few days, once the chaos slows down a little...

Can you see my smile?

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I think you and your husband recommended the company/people we used when we went hang gliding in Rio-it was so much fun:)

How exciting that your shipment is finally on the way. You should post pictures once everything is unpacked!

Yay-one of the best days in an expat's life. :)

The Keys are off-maybe just for our family though...(probably not this summer, but sometime)
