Made It in Just 1611 Miles!!!

Greetings from Bellevue, NE!!!
We made it here today at about 4:30pm and made it to the property manager's office just before they closed for the day to get our rental house key. It turned out the empty house needs a LOT of cleaning and TLC before we get our furnishings on Monday, so I'll be busy the next few days shampooing carpets, Magic-Erasering all of the crayon, scuffs and fingerprints from the walls and figuring out a way to deal with the spiders in the basement -- there were filament-y webs EVERYWHERE in the basement.
In between the cleaning, I have to squeeze in the things to do to get Jake ready for school starting in 12 days: filling out forms, scheduling his physical and eye exam, and going school shopping. All of those tasks have been on hold during the move.
The neighbors have been very nice -- since we pulled into the driveway at the end of a duty day, all the folks were coming home from work and walking right over to us to introduce ourselves as we were unloading the vehicles. That was nice. Tons of kids abound, and of all the kids I saw, so far I've only seen one girl.
Dave's distant cousin Max (he's a sailor stationed here) gave us a call tonight, too, to welcome us to the area. He offered to come over after his duty day on Monday and help us unpack boxes. That was also very nice.
We're quite exhausted from the 450 mile drive today, about 200 of the miles in the rain. Rain driving SUCKS! Dave's officially reporting in tomorrow morning to the Air Force Weather Agency at 0730 (Central time, so it's as if it's 0830 Eastern, right?).

Wow, I can't believe you are all the way over there in NE!

Why was the house so funky when you got there? Don't people clean up when they move out? Sorry you have to deal with it.

We're having tax-free weekend starting tomorrow, so I'm off to get the boys some sneakers for school and Kapila needs new soccer cleats (soccer starts on the 11th!).
