I Am Terrible At Blogging!

The weather here lately has been reminding me of Massachusetts. The rain finally stopped, leaves are crunching under my feet, there is a wonderful crisp in the air, and I am craving Dunkin Donuts Pumpkin Spice Coffee!! I am crossing my fingers that Starbucks will have something comparable soon, even though I am a New England Girl and thoroughly prefer DD over Starbucks. Good news is that not only "America runs on Dunkin", because there is one here in Germany! It is in Berlin though, which is about 155 miles away. I won't be going there for my daily fix but I am hopeful that I will make it there one day.

So my camera decided to break during TJs home opener. Perfect timing, right? Good thing electronics are cheap here because TJ treated me to a brand new one today!! I did manage to capture a video of the team taking the ice and it also shows how intense the fans get here with their chants and sparklers. Unfortunately you're going to have to take a peek back here tomorrow because my computer keeps freezing and it's 12am here - no more fighting with the computer for me!!

On Tuesday we went to our first Hannover 96ers Fußball game. The arena holds 46,000 people and it was a sold out game!! It was for sure something we had to experience and I am glad we went. Our seats were right behind the net, so make sure you take a peek in the Hannover, Germany section of our online photo gallery later tomorrow after I figure out how to upload pictures off my Blackberry.

So, I have a confession to make - I recently found myself googling "how to be a housewife". It sounds goofy, crazy and strange (and totally me - Teej calls me the Google Queen!), but when I have a question, google finds my answer. I feel so scatter brained lately. I am so use to working 12 hour work shifts out of the house and living my life around a schedule; knowing exactly at X time on Y day the laundry had to get done or if I had 5 spare minutes during a lunch break to quickly do the dishes from the night before, that this whole having 24 open hours to do anything yet everything is a complete shock to me. I am internally programed to go, go, go. Trust me I am keeping busy, but it's just a different kind of busy I guess. Slowly but surely I am learning to embrace my life and live in the now instead of planning where I need to be in the next 15 minutes, but I also need structure and a schedule to keep myself from going nuts on track. I've been consciously working on it the past couple of days and hopefully I will fall into a routine soon.

I guess my friend Ashleys facebook status can sum up how I feel (in a funny way, of course):

"I am so busy doing nothing... that the idea of doing anything - which as you know, always leads to something - cuts into the nothing and then forces me to have to drop everything." - Jerry Seinfeld :)

Anyways, check back tomorrow for a couple of pictures and the video. I have some funny pictures of Bruttys first encounter with a few cows and bull, too!! :) For those of you that don't know, English Bulldogs were bred for bull baiting, so it was pretty funny to see his reaction. Remember that we are 6 hours ahead here - I will have everything squared away by noon which is 6am back home so you'll be able to see it when you wake up!! 

Loving and missing the family big time!!

  1. Whew, I know what you mean. Our contracts ended on the 18th and since then we've just been packing and saying goodbye, getting ready to move back to America. I've forgotten what day it is, I've got no schedule- things just get done when they get done with no work! Your Google story is way cute!
