Evening is so nice because we relax in the family room, ignoring the chaos of the rest of the house with its half filled duffel bags, stuff strewn on the floor, piles of "take this" and "leave that" and whatever else is there.
Today's activities have included:
- Wiring a significant amount of money to pay for the car our landlord has bought for us--a silver, Megane station wagon.
- Deciding we were taking too much and so starting to unpack duffels and making new decisions about what things we really don't need to take--a lot as it turns out.
- Cancelling cell phone service.
- Visiting two banks with Jeff--signing papers giving him access to our accounts and adding him to our checking accounts--yep, we trust him totally.
- Lunching at Joe's Crab Shack with Jeff-realizing that soon it will be italian, italian, italian for lunch (pranzo) and dinner (cena).
- Being a resource to a couple other people starting the path we have been traveling-- there are some lessons we have learned and information that we have garnered that are worth sharing.
- Making the last trip to Casey's orthondontist here before being handed off to Dott. Floria in Firenze.
- Realizing that I have some serious spyware and infections on the computer and so purchasing a new program to augment the free ones I have relied on.
- Linking Bushdrums.Com to my Tanzania website pages--if you are interested in the ecological and cultural preservation of Kenya and Tanzania, a trip to this site will be worthwhile. It is being developed by my dear friend in Montepulciano, Nico Pannevis, who owns Sant' Antonio Country Resort.
- Working with Casey on completing two pages of his matematica work book from his school in Greve.
- Enduring two games of WAR with Casey.
- And more, more, more.
Now--off to a bowl of ice cream smoothered with much gooey hot fudge sauce--not gelato, for sure, but it'll do for tonight.
