We Made it to Philly

Greetings from PA! Well we made it. The trip was VERY long and boring. Aubrie did surprisingly well and keeps asking to go back to the hotel. I am pretty much just in culture shock. Philadelphia is not like anything I have ever seen. It is going to take some getting used to, and right now I just want to go home.
We finally have a house. It is very old but hey there are 3 bedrooms and a basement to store things in. After living in "The Village" up the U- we feel like we are in a palace. The moving company screwed us and won't refund us the money they owe us so, we have NO furniture. I am pretty sure we will NEVER use a moving company again. Aubrie keeps asking where our couch is and all I can say is- "well honey sit on the camping chair!" Life sucks sometimes doesn't it?
Unfortunately my camera is missing so I have no pics right now. I will post some when I find it. This week we are going to figure out how the public transportation works and go see some sights of the city (hopefully) and I am definitely looking for a job because it is CRAZY expensive here. Everything costs SO much. I am trying to be upbeat but it just isn't working...
I will write more of our adventures later.

That's right- 1 week exactly and we will be on the road to Phili! We are busy packing and saying our goodbyes this week. I am extremely nervous about the move, not knowing anyone, and everything else that goes along with traveling 2,146 miles across the US to live for the next 2 and a half years. Thank you thank you to everyone that has helped us and done things for us (like parties!) we will miss our friends and families so so much. More than I probably know right now. I am sure that we will have some fun pictures from the trip that I will post after we get there and are all set up. My friends also have teased me lately that I am sure once we move our blogs will be more interesting and more frequent (I hope so). Thanks again to everyone and wish us luck....
