She's coming!

We were not sure about the date yet, but now it's final: the Italian Ilaria Landriscina is coming to live with us for a couple of months and she will arrive September 12th! Hubby is busy getting a spare room ready for her. It won't be very large, but she will have all that she needs. We'll take good care of her. When Lana showed me her picture on Facebook, I realized it's really going to happen now. It'll be quite an experience to have another young girl in our household. She's 18 and we have no idea how she's been raised. We will have to talk about the rules in our house before she gets here. After all, we will be responsible for her well being. There's not much to do in our small village, but I'm sure she will find her way to Ghent and she will have plenty of friends to hang out with. Let's hope she will speak some English so we can understand each other just a little bit.

The room needs another coat of paint and some wall to wall carpet, before we can start putting in the furniture. She will need a bed and a small desk, hangers for her wardrobe. Let's make it a nice room for her to stay in, so she won't be homesick... Welcome to our house, Ilaria. We're looking forward to meeting you.
