For real?

Oh my gosh, can I really get happy now??? Honest?

Today my phone rang here at the hotel, and it was my husband. He tells me that our stuff is here. Here, as in Chile! I was totally blown over, as we were told that it was going to be late. Now, to my accidental readers, you can catch up here. Since we've been staying here so long, this room now feels like our apartment. Funny.

Getting back to the story, my dh tells me that they (the movers) will be picking our stuff up from the port at Valparaiso, and driving it here. It's approximately 74 miles. They are doing this in two days!!!! And this means that momma gets her life back! Our bed, our things, our computer, clothes and toys! Oh what great news this is! I'm very happy today. And I can't believe that in a matter of days we will be in our own place.

We still have to do the final walk through on the apartment, and we have to get some appliances and make sure that they are delivered. But it's so soon! We weren't planning to do this until the end of the month. So, as I have been moping around here lately like an old tired dog, I've been renewed today! I think I forgot what it's like not to be living out of a suitcase.

Can I get a round of drinks for my friends over here?? And for those of you pregnant or nursing, how about a nice cup of decaffeinated green tea?

OK. I'm going to go find something chocolate to eat. Today is just frikkin' fantastic!

You know, every time you mention Valparaiso, it reminds me of one of my favorite books, Daughter of Fortune by Isabel Allende.

Can't wait to see pics!
