So, here it is, my first blog post. We have been here in Germany for five weeks. So I have been a little slow on getting this thing started. So much has happened during this first month, where to start? We arrived without issue. Dirk and Cheyenne came in the middle of July, they were […]Read More First blog post, no really, it’s my first blog post
So, earlier this week, Cheyenne messaged me to let me know she would be a little late getting home. It seems there was a bomb threat, so her train would not be running. She managed to catch a ride with someone, and caught a different train home. No worries, right? She was even thrilled to […]Read More Bombs: You Learn Something New Every Day.
I know that I am not a travel blogger. But, whenever we travel, I always have high hopes of writing a great travel post. The kind that people will want to read before they book their own trips. The hopes quickly fade as soon as all of our plans change. This happens every time Dirk […]Read More I Suck at Travel Blogging

Yesterday, Dirk, Jack and myself went for a bit of a hike. We found some trails that […]Read More Spring in February
Poor Newt, he has been having some issues lately. A few weeks ago I noticed he was going to his littler box very frequently. I also noticed, that he was trying to pee, but very little was actually coming out. He was eating and drinking well, and did not see to be in any distress. […]Read More Newt Goes to the Vet
Yesterday I did my bi-weekly grocery shopping. I have been here in Germany for about a year and a half, and I still love to go grocery shopping. It still feels like an adventure, and not the scary adventure it once was. Now, I am able to read a lot of the packaging and this […]Read More Patterned Toilet Paper, One of my Favourite Things About Germany.
I have a bit of a problem with putting things off, and telling myself that I will do it later. Later always seems to become 10 minutes before said project is due. My ulcers flare, I feel sick, my heart starts to race, my head hurts. Then, I pull it all together like the rock […]Read More Cherie, The Queen of Procrastination No More
As many of my friends and family already know, my wonderful husband just had his 50th birthday. He spent the day working, as he almost always does. He even had a “special” running at Art of the Needle, our tattoo shop, so he was more busy than usual. I offered to make what ever he […]Read More Dirk Turns 50. A German Birthday Party, sort of…
I received an exciting notification a few days ago. WordPress let me know that I had reached 500 followers on my little blog. It’s amazing really, since only a handful of those that follow me are people that I have met in real life. Most I have never met before! Well, not yet anyway. We […]Read More 500 Followers
There is something about buying new furniture that makes me feel like a successful and responsible adult. It’s true, I have not always lived the most conventional lifestyle. We did after all, sell or donate most of our belongings and move abroad to Germany. During the years prior to the move, we lived in a […]Read More Furniture Buying, and Becoming an Adult
It has been grey, cold and raining for 40 days and 40 nights. The amount of rain we get here during a western Germany winter is almost biblical. OK, I may be exaggerating a tad, just a tad. But seriously, I think the last time I saw the sun it was September, it’s now January. […]Read More A Brief Glimpse of Sunshine
