Just In...

I have moved.. oh yeah the packers came and went, followed by the cleaning crew who scrubbed and cleaned while I cribbed to Hubby Dearest about how I had to do it all while he basked in NC. But then I locked the doors and bid final adieu to an over cast Denver and took the cab to the airport with a reluctant Nantu tagging along. At the security check point Cheeky stopped turned back dragging his little back pack with him and said " I am not going with you, I am going back to Denver". I could have cried, not that I have ever been emotional about the many moves I have made in life. After all, I have always looked forward to new explorations. But my pouting 3 yr old who declared how he missed Denver already had my heart tugging!
But then in true child like innocence he shifted the attention to the air train which did not have a driver.. and had little fans on the wall in the tunnel. Fascinating I know.. he still talks about it! And then we had to visit the gift shop where I walked away with a final souvenir of my favorite city so far - The Mile High City. I have lived in a lot of places, but I think the one place I loved the most was Denver.
On the plane we had our next adventure. Nantu got to peek into the cock pit. As you can imagine he found it very interesting that there are 2 people trying to fly the plane. I had to answer all his questions on that till he finally dozed off from exhaustion!
I reached NC in the middle of the night.. literally, and the first thing that hit me when I got off the plane was the heat! Whoa.. at midnight no less. What exactly did I get myself into? But then I have found the best thing I like about NC already.. the trees. I just love that there are trees everywhere.. dense thick trees, gives you calm, quiet and some wilderness, literally at my door step. Nantu on the other hand is excited about his new room with a patio no less and the very fact that his room turned out to be bigger than mine has him dancing.
So that is the report just in from NC. More later as I finally settle down. Once I am done settling down, I need to tackle the most dreaded of all chores! Finding the perfect school for Nantu. This has me in jitters, he has loved the school experience so far and I really want to keep it that way!! Meanwhile Cheeky claims that he doesn't have to go to school "I am just going to skip school and go to college" says he! Knowledge picked up from the India visit? Aaah, I do have my work cut out don't I?
