Rubber chicken beach

Our 7 Rubbermaid bins are coming today. I am a little nervous about where I am going to put everything. It's not a lot of stuff but it's hard to find a "home" for everything. We need to seriously get some toy boxes or something for the kids to put their toys in. We are going to hit some moving sales this weekend to see what treasures we can find. When people move off Island they sell a lot of stuff so we should get some good deals.

Here is a quick list of things I already miss and wish I had brought
1. Sewing machine (left it behind at the last minute because my sister said it would break on the journey. I knew she was right so I left it.)

2. Kitchenaid mixer. It's not so bad right now because my Mother-in-Law has one but it won't be here for long.

3. Tupperware. This one I REALLY wish I would have brought. But it just took up so much room in the luggage it couldn't come. If we stay longer than one year I am totally going to bring it!

I've been to the grocery store 4 times and we've only been here for 6 days. It's driving me crazy not knowing how to shop here. We bought some chicken yesterday to put in our Oriental Chicken Salad. I cooked it tonight the same way I always do and it was weird. Apparently it matters what brand you buy. Just about any store back home you could buy chicken and pretty much expect a certain result. Well it's going to be a bit more complicated here. It's all just a matter of trying stuff and seeing what we like. Can you believe I just wrote a whole paragraph about chicken.

Here are some pictures of our trip to the beach today. A place called Rum Point. Amazing.
