Also word is our HHE may be coming around the same time! This is also a lovely development; however, I'm not as excited because our HHE is coming in two shipments. The stuff that was in storage still hasn't shipped. Which means our dishes, our towels, our artwork, most of our kitchen utensils and everything else we didn't take with us to DC (which was only as much as we could fit in and around two cars and our UAB) is still at the dock. In Maryland. So yes, all of our consumables, new sheets and Christmas decorations (still lamenting putting those in the UAB to DC but whatever), are going to be here in a short while, for which I am grateful, but its still going to be a few more months before we get this place feeling completely like home.

Also received my new swimsuit. I ordered several new bikinis from Victoria's Secret (which came last week - its like Christmas around here, just much hotter) but the swimsuit that came today is actually for swimming. Which I ordered because I decided that when I leave Abuja I am going to do a triathlon. I realize for those of you who watched me collect green (5th place - Echo Valley only had five lanes lest you think I actually beat someone), brown (6th place) and pink (7th place) ribbons year after year at Echo Valley swim meets that this probably comes as a surprise. But I figure if I can run a marathon I can do a triathlon and I've got nothing but time and sun here, so its the perfect time to practice. Plus the Hilton allows US employees to swim in its pool for free (we have a really nice pool on our compound but it isn't suited for swimming laps). Besides, my mom always said I had a beautiful stroke.
