Hmm, since my last post, several things have happened. I’ll try to keep this short and sweet so as not to bore you, my 3 loyal readers, with mundane details:
Clothes dryer in our apartment: Still without one. New one was delayed a week, should hopefully be here on Monday. I’m pretty much out of clean clothes as of this morning.
My bike: Stolen a week and a half ago. Police lost the report, so I had to file a 2nd one. I finally got a new bike yesterday. Didn’t realize how much I needed one until I had to go a week and a half without one.
Immigration: Went to the IND earlier this week, and Roxy and I are now legal. We got stickers in our passports saying this. Mine is good for 9 years, Roxy’s is good for 6 months (until they can make a decision on whether or not to give her a 1 year sticker. After that year is up, she can apply for a 5 year sticker. She doesn’t need a work permit, so once we get back from the US in early November, she can start job hunting in earnest.
That’s pretty much it for here. Roxy has a cold, but it’s a beautiful fall day here. We may ride our bikes to Flevopark and find a nice place to read for a bit. We went to Vondelpark last week for a few hours, and it was very relaxing. Tonight, we’re going bowling with a group of other Expats.
