Conclusion

Day 8:
WOW we have been here a week today, it has been a long week and a boring week for Kate and I. Not much exploring and too much hanging out but also too hot to do more than that if you think about it. Relaxing day organized papers in bedroom and made sense of the house. Big mistake I was not aware the grocery stores are not open on Sunday should of stocked up for the weekend. We are down to no food and nothing for dinner, into the city center we go.

Craig took us to a Italian restaurant where we sat outside and people watched it was really fun even for a slow night there was lots to be seen. Food was good, beer was even better, I’m taking to the beer like it is water!


Day 9:
Waited for repairmen and while waiting I Mr. Clean the kitchen. It was so gross but now the dirt found will be our dirt. Started whipping down rest a house baseboards etc. but had to stop it was so hot and humid today I was dripping. Finally at 2:30 we left for the store to stock up all that we could carry, five bags and two trips later the refrigerator is happily full again. Katelyn and I played cards again and I made a nice stir-fry for dinner ended the night watching Big Love. Big find of the day black and white cookies at the grocery store bakery! Sweet! Can't find the basic of things but we found Black and Whites like in NYC...cracks me up!

Day 10:
Landlord came over last night and with is broken English said someone would be here today or tomorrow to fix the electrical and re- key the locks. But of coarse no time is ever given and here we will wait.

That is the end of my documenting our first days here in Germany. I think this is when my Free Cell addiction started and I didn't care about anything else. Finally got the Internet and phone a month after we arrived here and all was good. I started my blog in November, again I wish I started it sooner. So much happen in the beginning I truly thought we were being "punked".

I wish you had started a blog when we first moved there, because at the start, when we weren't used to the 'German ways' of everything, we had some funny stories!! :P

I had a diary after moving to the States first. I know exactly how you feel. :) Only I spoke the language of course, which helped big time. I love reading your blog.
