Heading To Cordoba

It's very dark outside but the alarm says it's time to get up. We have a big day planned! First off, to be at the office when the doors open at 8 a.m. so we can get started right away on the paperwork for (1) permanent residency status, and (2) DNIs which are the national identity cards everyone needs.

So as we begin the process of paperwork, pray for a bureaucrat in a good mood who will be helpful and fast. It really does often depend on what kind of day that person is having.

And since it seems wasteful to make the trek into Cordoba for that alone, we are doing some shopping. Our co-workers typically spend one day a month getting all they need at stores there so that's the plan. I will follow, learn, and buy when necessary.

I have hopes of scoring a toaster oven which will make our culinary life much easier. Right now I have the option of pan frying or boiling or pan frying. Mostly pan frying. The End.

And maybe an iron so we don't always look like an unmade bed.

But other than that I don't have lofty goals. Just learn the ropes :-)

We'll be gone all day, away from the computer and all things bloggy. But I'm sure there will be plenty to post about later!

Thanks for the posts - I'm enjoying keeping up with what you're doing!

Will be praying for appropriate toilet paper to be found!
