❶ REAL Mexican food in Boston ❶
Well, this week has been less-than-ideal with regards to getting our new house in order. For one, our furniture/clothes/appliances have STILL not arrived. Our internet modem is 2 weeks late because, as we learned half an hour ago, no one remembered to process our order. Two different cable services have come to check out our house and informed us that we have too many big trees to get adequate satellite signal. We bought a TV for which the manufacturer forgot to include a stand, we bought a lamp that was missing the little “thingie” you twist to turn it on and off, and our new ceiling fan was missing two screws. Our shower curtain rod fell off recently, and the doorbell decided to stop working. GRRRRRRRRRRR!!!! It’s taken REAL determination to not rip off someone’s head. Thank God for my parents, who arrived a few days ago and who have single-handedly maintained our sanity. Also, thank God for my dad’s ability to pretty much fix ANYTHING that is broken.
That said, our house and neighborhood are ridiculously awesome, and we have PLENTY of things to be happy about…

Sorry the posts have been scant these past couple of weeks. I REALLY need internet at home… I’ve got a lot of cool things to share, so more later! Happy weekend!
