And life goes on...

So what's new here? Not much.
Eric is working part time for an electronics store and still looking for other opportunities.
He has also spent a week with the Flu - yes our first New Zealand illness. He was not happy. I think I may have been lucky. I did not get it even though it did go through our office too. I did opt for the free flu shot offered only a few weeks before Eric caught it. FYI Flu in New Zealand is the same as the Flu in the States.

Winter is coming and we have already had some fun little storms blow through. The photo above is from from the local paper and was taken here in Miramar. Pretty wild huh? We had one evening where the wind was so strong that the rain was literally hitting our windows horizontally and making sooo much noise we could not sleep. Gotta love single pane windows.

We will be looking forward to some sunshine next month. We are heading back to the States in July for our first visit since we left almost a year ago now. We can't believe how fast the year has gone by. It will be a whirlwind trip with lots to do (i.e shopping and In N Out burger and Mexican food feast, Seattle Casual Connect, and San Diego Comic Con) and people to see. We will be in Los Angeles, Seattle and San Diego -all in only 3 weeks. We will do our best to see as many of our dear friends and family as we can and apologize to those we miss this trip. We are still figuring out our plans, but hope to have a "open" meal or two where anyone who is around can come see us.

As for other fun and interesting news, the city of Wellington wants to promote itself and one of the various ideas was the "Wellywood" sign. No I am not kidding although I wish I were. The image above is only a photoshopped image there is currently nothing on that hillside. As of this posting, it looks like the majority has spoken out against it and it will not be happening. But it has been an entertaining controversy.

Check out these links for all the fun details.

Warm Regards to all,
Stacy & Eric

  1. Hi Stacy and Eric
    Noticed you will be going to Comic Con in July. I'll be there too - possibly the only other Wellington resident in attendance.
    Maybe I'll see you in a queue!
