A lot of the time, I’m really happy. I finally got my Danish visa, we’re finally moved into a place of our own (with our own furniture!) and things are generally going really well. But sometimes, I still get down, and go all Negative Nancy, like I have been the last day or so. I’m happy to finally be building our home together, but sometimes it’s really frustrating to be in this little period of not-quite-there-yet. We don’t have any plates or bowls (or mixing bowls or baking dishes) and only a couple pots and three plastic cooking utensils. That’s pretty annoying.
Our internet, which was supposed to be up yesterday isn’t up. I think there’s something wrong with our phone line (through which we’re getting the internet) and it might not be up for a while. In the mean time, I can occasionally connect to some random open network that works when you sit near the living room window. That’s pretty annoying, too.
The grocery stores here are filled with meat. I knew this. I remembered it from all of my visits before, but the lack of things I can eat is really frustrating, especially when we’re looking for convenient foods that we can cook with our two pots.
Meanwhile it’s gray outside, and I’m getting a little tired of being cut off from the outside world and chain-watching Friends while I switch between my knitting project and Skyburger on the kindle.
It will get much better soon, but I’m having to work pretty hard to not get consistently frustrated. Meanwhile, I leave Friday morning to Thanksgiving Weekend at my in-laws! Andreas is staying here for a fun night with his fellow coders, so I’ll be doing most of the prep and cooking with my sister and mother-in-law! I’m excited, but I wish Andreas could be with us. My favorite part about Thanksgiving is everyone doing everything together!
In other news we got fantastic new duvets (and duvet covers!)
