Big Man in a Little Coat

video

This is Rene here. I've been asked to do a guest post, since some people didn't believe that I am living here too.

I was a little nervous and was having trouble thinking of a theme and/or a title for my first guest post, however, as you know, our household goods finally arrived today, and it was sometime during the moving-in process that the theme and title struck me. A little reference to an old Chris Farley skit aptly described moving our household goods from the US into our house here. Big Man in a little coat... Big man in a Little coat...

Okay, we didn't even move half of our stuff here, and I know for a fact we didn't move a third of what most people move since we only had to bring one piece of furniture, but wow, it's a tight squeeze. I think you'll be able to see this in the video above...

Don't worry, there's still plenty of room for you all to come visit. We have two guest bed-rooms in the works, and the current tally is that we can sleep five additional adult or almost-adult sized peeps. Luckily, there is a lot of storage here, so we are not overly worried, we were just a little shocked by how much it all turned out to be.

Aptly enough, we finished up our day of American Excess with our first trip to the Village McDonalds. It just seemed appropriate. Martin had the New York burger and American fries, I had two small burgers and the pomme frites. Nice, but we're glad we won't have to do that again for awhile.

We're still squishing stuff into tiny little storage places now, and we'll do a video soon to show you all the guest bedrooms so you can start choosing your favorites now...

Love & Miss You,

LRM

PS. M turned his ankle jogging the other day, so he hasn't been out walking to make a new video...but he will hopefully be back at it soon!

So would you say it's like Christmas around there getting to open all those "presents"?

Yes - the biggest presents for me in the shipment were my bathrobe and my 'air babies', both from Christmas's past... :)
