Family May 2012

living room furniture and other matters

After much delay our livving room furniture finally arrived. I think it might be the wrong color, but I'm not certain. I'm going to have to go back to the showroom and have a look. It's still a neutral color, so I'm not so concerned, but it's kind of odd. Also, one of the chairs has a small rip in the seam at the back. It's not against a wall, so I'm less than thrilled. I'm going to have to ask them what they're going to do to fix that. Sigh.

In other news, Seth is getting ready for Shabbos in Aruba. There are a couple of Lubavitchers there for the summer at the hotel he's staying at, so he's going to daven with them tonight and have dinner with them. Hooray for Chabad! One of them knows my friend Eli. It's a small world after all. :) I'm still amazed by the fact that I can talk to Seth from 4,000 miles away. I know it's probably not such amazing technology, but I think I'll never cease to be amazed by something like that. Even more amazing is that my father told me that he was getting calls from my brother in the middle of a desert in Afghanistan. Incredible. My brother has moved out of Afghanistan, apparently, and is now in Qatar (sp?). Qatar has the highest per capita income in the world. It's a teeney tiny country with a fairly small population, but it only has one industry... oil. Must be an interesting place to be. BearingPoint has a fairly substantial presence in Qatar, which I find pretty interesting. Not that I ever expect to be sent out there, but I still think it's interesting.

Anywho, we're bringing Shabbos in early tonight, so I'll be heading over to the Felds' around 7. It should be nice to get to bed at a decent hour for once. :)

I still need more user icons. Sigh. I'm so boring.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
