A big Naperville greetings to everyone. I’m pleased to report that we are now fully settled into our new Naperville dream home and I look forward to getting back on track with new postings. So much has happened over the past few weeks I don’t know where to start.
Our move has led us into the realm of South Naperville which has been an interesting experience already. Within days, I suddenly have a newfound appreciation for what South Napervillians have gone through for the past 5-10 years. It is definitely a different path we travel to meet our daily needs. Nonetheless, it is mighty peaceful down here. The good news is we aren’t far from the great 75th Street dividing line as well as Washington Street.
The neighbors have been great so far. We could have a chocolate chip cookie bake-off for all of the wonderful salty and sweet confections we have received. I have to give major props to my seven year-old who decided to jump right in an switch elementary schools rather than finish the year at his former school. In his own logic, he wanted to get started so he could make new friends for summertime. Ironically, one of his classmates lives right across the street.
I also have to say great things about Naperville-based Prager Moving. Quite a different experience from when we moved to Naperville from Chicago five years ago with our beer-drinking moving crew. The team working for Prager was not only super-careful and efficient, but they also were very friendly to our boys amidst the chaos of emptying the house onto the moving truck. Best of all, the unload went great and after unpacking everything I’m pleased to report that not a single item was broken nor was anything damaged.
Best of all, I’m thrilled that we have switched from DirecTV to Comcast and now have full access to NCTV 17 of which I’ve finally enjoyed watching after five years of not having my NCTV.
The stress is behind, the boxes are unpacked, the dinners out have ended, most art has taken it’s place up on the wall, we are settling and ready for a new era in the Naperville Experience! Stay tuned. SM
