Just a small update

I have not posted much lately because I moved into our new house about a week ago and I am without internet access for another week or two.  Another personnummer barrier, when I signed up for internet access, they had to send me a form to fill out and I had to make a deposit before they would send me the modem.  That takes a good 3 weeks to get through all of that and actually receive the modem.

I did actually receive my personnummer this week so that is no longer an issue.  I also now have a personal banker who literally does everything for me from the bank, loans, mortgages, account information, pension information, everything.  I will post more on that later, I have an appointment with her at the end of the month.

Sarah is here visiting, she had the same culture shock that I had when I came in July, she will just start to get used to it when she leaves on Sunday.  The only thing she wants to do is buy a car because she doesn't like waiting outside for the buses and trains.  The airline lost her luggage and we still have no idea where it is, she arrived yesterday morning, and we have no word on where it could be.  It is kind of problematic because obviously Sarah has no clothes (we had to go shopping to at least buy a coat yesterday), but it also had a lot of information that I need along with some new clothes for me to.

The bank in America cancelled my debit card because they said Visa told them that my number was compromised, so my access to cash at the moment is a little difficult, Sarah had a new card for me in her suitcase, so I would really like to have that.

We are going to go out and see Uppsala today and maybe go to a car dealership to get an idea on car prices and buying here in Sweden.

The airline lost DiAnne and Ella's luggage too last weekend. But fortunately, they got it Friday morning so it didn't impact them much.

buying a car may not be a wise choice right now, unless u can get a good deal on a used one
