Update

Dear Family & Friends:

Camp is great. Please send money. Arizona is great. And by great I mean unbelievably hot. But also great. And hot.

Some of you may be wondering why it's taken me so long to get back on this freakin' blog. And you can all shove it because call me when you move to Arizona in the 115-degree heat and you can't find your socks because the movers packed them with the remote for the DVD player by accident. Everyone knows you can't blog without socks. And a computer, which we actually did manage to pack in the correct box, which made it that much more convienent to throw away when it arrived.

Yes, after joking about it on my previous post, our computer did not make it. But it did manage to relay one last message to me when I plugged it in for the last time: "Hi Mike! Welcome to Arizona! I hope you said your goodbyes, because you won't be communicating through me any longer. You don't play fantasy sports, do you? What? That sucks. Maybe you should take a picture of me shutting down so you can download it on your new computer. Holla. Actually...don't."

So now I am typing from our brand new laptop, which I am currently trying to get worked into our mortgage somehow. But other than that little snag, things have been going very well. We love our new home. The first thing we did was paint it. Well, not "we" literally, but "we" meaning two guys who are not us. They did a great job, but there was a slight communication problem. Did you know that "2 gallons" in Spanish is the equilvalent of "11 gallons" in English? This resulted in about 17 very avoidable trips to Lowes, which happens to be 40 minutes away from our house. Awesome. At least it wasn't hot.

It's been fun trying to get settled in, but a little stressful too. I went two weeks without cable or Internet access - "No TV and no online make Mike something, something." "Go crazy?" Don't mind if I do!" - and I've felt so out of the loop. I hear the Yankees are doing fantastic though. Is that true? I sure hope so.

Anyway, I feel like I have so much more to say, and more stories to tell, but right now, I have to finish putting together an Ikea dresser that I am told will look great in our guest room. Tomorrow, it's back to Home Depot, Target, and maybe Bed, Bath & Beyond. Ya' know, if there's time.

Also, please send money.

Seriously. We're running out.

Why do you need socks in 115 degree weather?
