borrowed items

Our living room - lovely green couches

Our bedroom

Our first dinner in our house...Pizza Hut

Gavin's room
Since our main shipment will not get here for a few weeks, we had to borrow furniture from the base. They had such an organized process...even the little japanese guys bringing it were orderly. And they ran between bringing in items. Can you believe that?!?!? Instead of the guys in America who smoked every 15 minutes and told me stories of how bad their life is, we got super hard working guys who would not accept a tip since this was part of their job description. But I digress.

It is fun to document this part - because we are so out of control of everything. We need to rely on so many people to help make our lives 'normal'. We had to borrow sheets from Michele and Andy, borrow furniture from the base, and get rides to the store to buy essentials (t.p., milk, etc). It is so humbling and we are so appreciative.

Here are some pics of our house as is right now. Tomorrow, our first shipment will get here with our linens and towels, toys and books, tv, utensils, etc. It will be nice to have OUR things around.
