On the way

We took the beetle to the shipping company on Wednesday morning. It took us a little over an hour to have the car inspected and to do all of the paper work along with deregistering the plates. Michelle was very good while we waited on Brian. She drank her sippy and watched the end of Men in Black II and the beginning of Monster-in-law. Of course keeping an 8 month old entertained for over an hour is an accomplishment in and among itself.

We where told that the beetle would arrive in Dallas on April 13th, which is good for us because the earliest day we can fly out of Germany is April 18th. However we have chosen to leave on April 28th. So we will see what will happen. Not much else is going on as far as getting ready to move. We are taking things one day at a time and getting things sorted and gone through before they come and pack up all of our stuff.

They all look the same

After looking at three or so houses things start to blend together. At the moment there are nine that we really like. The realtor that we've been working with has been really nice and helpful. They even sent us a relocation packet; which had a realtor guide for house buying and a catalog thing that tells about Abilene. The catalog thing is actually kind of cool because it's almost like a phone book of sort.

We found a four bedroom, three bath, two car garage with a dog run and pecan trees. It also has a marble jacuzzi in the one bath room. I sure don't need a marble jacuzzi but hey f it comes with the house I'm not gunna complain. It also has a two car carport off the front of the garage, which is nice when you want to wash or wax the car.

I will put up some picture of the house in my next post. the realtor's website was not working today.

Moving is such a joy

I have desided to start a blog for our move. This way I won't be filling my other blog up with the move and Brian can also help me keep everyone up dated too.
We are getting ready to ship the beetle back to the states next week. Brian is going to detail it this weekend so we can take it to the shippers on February 22nd. The only down side is that it has to be shipped whill the registration is still valid. At least with it going so early it will hopefully be there waiting on us.
