Connected again
The house settlement went through without a problem, and the move was fast and easy thanks to our families (who are useful people with access to large vehicles). And, in stark contrast to our last move to the UK, we have our phone and internet up and running already. So I hope to be able to re-join the online world again soon! After we put together ikea wardrobes and bookcases so we can finish unpacking...

But in the meantime, all I can think to say is holy crap, enough disasters already. The whole state being flooded or being covered by a cyclone was bad enough, but these earthquakes are horrific.

The earthquakes/tsunamis--so horrible.

Congratulations on the house! How wonderful! And Ikea furniture and UNPACKING BOOKS. Yay! It sounds like loads of fun.

Total aside: When I talk to adults about graphic novels and visual literacy and how to use them within school curriculum, I ask them if they've put any furniture from IKEA together recently. Then, I tell them how tremendously important it is nowadays to be able to "read" illustrations and graphics. It really seems to help people "get" it.
