We're here!

Moved into the house last week. We're still in let's-go-out-and-find-ways-to-spend-money-rather-than-unpack mode though.

On this particular morning it's getting a new battery installed in the car. When the temp hit zero, it was just too much for the old one to turn the engine over fast enough.

We took the kids to the library the other day and when my wife spoke Polish to them a charming lady with a Ukrainian accent and a child a little older than our daughter came up and said, "Are you Polish?"

Then said to her husband, "Honey this was the lady I told you I heard about."

Then turned to Monika and said, "It's a small town, you'll get used to it."

Now this is the funny thing that occurs to me; my wife is a big city girl from Warsaw. She's having the small town experience for the first time in America.

I on the other hand, have had the small town experience before - in Poland.

This is going to be interesting.
