Our Adventures for our first full week
Well on a personal note. I lost a crown last Sunday... Just 4 days after arriving. Went to the dentist on Tuesday. He asked when we were doing back to the US and I told him 23 months and he said Oh, not good. Not only did the crown fall out but a part of the tooth came with it. He said he would try and glue it back in but no way will it hold for 23 months. Then it would need a root canal and a new crown. I don't think so!!!! I know anything is possible and it could hold for exactly 23 months and fall out on the plane home, so I will keep praying for that.
Our flat has 17 stairs to the bedroom and each one is a different shape and size and level and height. We all know how much Bob loves stairs (not). Last time we had stairs he broke his ankle. We are very careful and hold on to the rail and turn on all lights that have power. Otherwise he is doing well.
Food here is really really expensive. My children know how little I spend at the store and would be shocked at the amount I have spent in 10 days. No coupons here .. It was really bad last week when the refer was out for so long and we had to throw away so much, but solved that problem with a really really long extension cord so I move the refer plug with extension cord around until I find an outlet that works and we now have a running refer all the time. It is amazing what we can make up. Oh, well had to create the extension cord!!!
I will close with this picture for a laugh.
