Anna has arrived

The big day came and Anna arrived. The flight even arrived a little early (unheard of) and she arrived totally exhausted. The time change coupled with the 2 days of sight seeing in New York made for one tired young lady.

We went to lunch at Applebees and then headed home. It was time to meet my other three kids, Brutus, Molly and Binde. They like her alot.

Then Wes had to leave to make the 8 hour drive back to Alabama and Anna and I went through the pantry to see what we had vs what she liked. We made a grocery list and then headed to the Verizon store to get her a cell phone. She had been using her Swedish one which is probably going to be costly.

With that taken care of we went to the grocery store. We picked up a good selection of fruit and some veggies and the usual, bread, milk, yogurt and I had to introduce her to Pop Tarts. I know, not the most nutritious of things. We had salmon for dinner and Anna had broccoli.

After dinner I wanted her to meet at least one of the neighbors so that she knew someone else in case she needed something while I am at work. Our neighbors have a little 3 year old girl who is adorable. Well, she just hugged up on Anna and danced for her. Her parents had never seen her like this before. I guess Anna might get a babysitting gig out of the deal.

Today she is on her own to catch up on her sleep and unpack her things. I will try to introduce her to some of the other young adults in the neighborhood tonight.

How could you disappoint me? ATKINS sucks. I know it. And it's not easy. And low carbing is better than nothing. Just don't eat white bread, white rice or potatos and you're good to go!

Sounds like Anna is going to need to rest after all that traveling.

Hope she is doing well!

I am really in awe of you having a foreign student! That is so cool. I don't think I could do it because I have a very less than normal life LOL! This is going to be exciting for both of you and I know you're happy to have her here!

I hope she's enjoying the beautiful Americana guest bedroom!
I can see you both sitting there with the dogs running around chasing the spotlight laughing so hard! I bet she stays in the A/C for awhile until she gets used to the FL heat!
