Update

We have finally moved into our apartment, but unfortunately we won't have internet for about 10 more days. I just wanted to give everyone an update on what is going on with us. I'm writing from a computer lab that will not allow me to see facebook so I'm pretty upset about that. I feel like I have no clue what is happening in my little social world. We found out today that our household goods shipment is going to be late, so we won't be getting our furniture until around the 18th of October. I'm pretty bummed about that, but at least we are living downtown. It's getting pretty cold here and I'm realizing that I should have packed winter clothes in my unaccompanied baggage. But I guess I will have to go shopping!! We have been very busy this week moving into the apartment with apointments of all kinds. (installing lights, installing kitchen, unaccompanied goods shipment, appliances and temporary furniture appointments.... etc...) The furniture that the military gives us is absolutely horrible, but luckily we won't have it for too much longer. I can't wait until they finally set up internet because I'm going through withdrawals. The movers broke our TV that we sent in temporary baggage, so we don't have TV either. I'm crossing my fingers that our household goods will show up in better condition than our temporary goods did. I will try to keep posting as much as possible with any updates, but it may be more sporadic now until we are more settled in! Caio!

I share your dislike of the crappy government furniture. After sleeping on the foam-mattress for a month, it was no surprise that our Sleep Number bed was the first thing to get unpacked and set up. Lots of Fabreez help me cope...

I totally understand the stress of waiting for household goods. The positive is being able to set up your house (painting, lighting) before your furniture is set up. Did you get your car yet?

How is everything else? I can't wait to see pics of the new place. It sounds wonderful. You all need to visit soon!

Hi! I stumbled on your blog during my endless internet searching of Vicenza. We are moving there next month! Was it difficult to find an apartment that allows a dog?
