The Animal

Hopefully today I will be getting a new vacuum cleaner!!! I think I'll get the Dyson Animal, but I want to see it first. Kind of exciting. Our old one broke last night, but we had it for five years so I think it has done its job well. Since we will be going to Target I might also be able to get some new sheets!!!! How exciting...it's like Christmas!!!!!!

I bet those people in Florida are happy once the hurricane season is over...
My mother in law was evacuated last week and since schools are closed this week too (she is a teacher) she decided to have a vacation....Not bad. I hope though that she will be able to get back home soon. She doesn't even know yet if and how much her home was damaged.
I am glad I don't live there.

German (small) Change

I had to giggle when I read this. That is so German.....Pay with exact change. I used to try to pay the exact amount when I came to the US but I felt so bad having people wait behind me while I am digging in my purse for pennies. That's why I love Coinstar. It's perfect.

Happy September!!!!

Did you ever notice how fast time goes by the older you get???? I remember when summers where endlessly long and now they just pass. But luckily in this climate we get to enjoy the nice temperatures a little bit longer.
September is going to be busy. A long weekend is coming up and we're going to King's Dominion!!!
But the most important thing is that now it's just three months until I go to Germany.....
