Double Yolk Sunday

So we finally did it. We got through the packing, loading container, cleaning and returning rental house, moving to mother-in-laws (thanks mommi), packing for airport, sorting through remaining....uh crap and leaving errands for our family to do (thanks everyone).

We left through SFO on 07/07/07 at 7:30 am.....

And for those of you who wonder, I did not pick that intentionally, it just worked out that way - but hopefully it will be for good luck on this endeavor. I know that our whole family and friends are wishing us luck, even if there is a betting pool on how long we will last in CR before coming back to the US permanently. Sadly, they wouldn't let me in the pool - I could have made us some money!

So we made it to the plane on time, kids behave like CHAMPS on the plane, arrived safely, whisked through immigration and customs. Got help with our mega-load (8 checked items consisting of 6 balikibayan boxes (20 x 20 x 20) and 2 car seat plus stuff. All of us and 6 carryon items of various sizes. We all fit into one big taxi van and for $19 were off to our first week condominium. No trouble getting in. "Uncle Charlie" our driver took us right back out to the automercado for a few necessities. And we were back "home."

So Sunday was mostly a get settled, set up stuff to do for the week (like find a place to stay after this week is up!) and rest. Now Monday we will hit the pavement running.

But for further luck. First thing Sunday morning I made breakfast and the first egg cracked - double yolk. That's supposed to be good luck too, right?
