We’ve been back home since Wednesday but I’ve been busy doing laundry, sleeping and going to get the second part of my root canal done!!!
Florida was great. Nice weather, nicer family and a wonderful Christmas.

I took some cool pictures out of the car. I like to call it Car Art.

The first one is of a Diner, called Angel's, we went to in April with my parents. It is really good.

Then there is a nice one of one of the many road signs. I believe that was when we were close to Palatka, FL.

And the last “good” picture is from our trip out towards Daytona. My mother-in-law is in front of us and she led through some kind of short cut.

Merry Christmas

OK. I’m all done and out of here!

Have a Merry Christmas and if I’m not able to post next week Happy New Year!!


We’re all packed and ready to go.
I just have to finish up here at work and soon I’ll be on my way to sunny Florida!
I can’t wait. I am so glad I got everything done I wanted to yesterday. And to top it all off we had a nice relaxing evening in front of the fireplace with some Christmas Music playing in the background. Just perfect.

Almost there

Just a couple more days and then I'm a whole week off!!!
It’ll be a little stressy tonight. I have to do some laundry tonight and pack too. The just a half day of work tomorrow and off we go!!!!
I hope that traffic will be OK and we can make it halfway down to Florida in about 6 hours and stop somewhere in South Carolina for the night.
I can’t forget the camera either. So many things to remember and so little time….

It seems the closer we get to “The Holidays” the more tired I get. My body is just craving the time off and refuses to recharge.
I so can’t wait to have some time off and spend some time with my family. In-laws, that is but it’s family just the same.

So, my parents were going to send us a package. This is one of the highlights every year. It’s not only the presents, but also the homemade cookies and all the other yummy stuff from Germany. So, one little stupid present they ordered didn’t arrive yet. So I told them to just go ahead and send the package since the little stupid present will in an envelope and then they can just send that later. Yesterday they informed me that they wanted to wait, which means I won’t get the cookies until next year. How stupid. So I was mad and grumpy and this morning my dad e-mailed me and asked if I was OK yesterday because they thought I acted weird and my mom was worried. She gets very emotional and all, especially around this time of the year. I told them I was fine and just distracted. I’m such an asshole sometimes.

Early Christmas Present

Went out this weekend and got a new digital camera. My husband and I are not getting each other anything. At least that’s we said. So we got something together.
We got the Sony Cybershot DSC-H1.
I love it.

That’s what the WaPo calls former chancellor Schröder.
Go over to David’s Medienkritik to read more about it.

All the present are bought and wrapped, except for one but that’s OK. Packages are sent and on their way to wherever they need to go and the Christmas cards are written and sent off as well.
It’s December 13th and I think that’s pretty good. Just one thing I HAVE to do is to find a hotel along I-95 so we can stay somewhere on our fun trip to Florida, but that shouldn’t be a problem. Hopefully.

OH, I should mention that my husband was the one visiting three post offices yesterday and not me. I guess a lot of people had the same idea.

I know

I have to post something. But I have absolutely no energy to come up with something witty and then there is that stupid time factor.
It’s a little hectic here lately but it’ll get better. Especially when I’m off for a week over Christmas. But then I won’t post anything either, because I will be in sunny and warm Florida while all you people up here in the North (or wherever you are) will freeze their “you-know-whats” off. I can’t wait.

Still Alive

Just incredibly busy with absolutely nothing. Does that make sense?
Anyway, life is good and there may be some Big changes in the future, so we’ll see.

And finally we have Friday. I know I have been busy doping everything else but posting I thought, I at least have to give you some kind of nonsense blurb before I enjoy my weekend.
\So, here it is!

Nothing much going on here. Christmas Party tonight and Navy beating up Army tomorrow!!!
