Weekend Ramblings

My rambling weekend......

I told my German teacher my daughter was having a surprise birthday party at our house this weekend, she wanted to know if I was serving alcohol?
WTH I said NEIN!! She ask if it was because I didn't want them to have alcohol? Ja mostly because they are 14 and 15 years old and they don't drink!! She was shocked!!

Diet Coke in restaurants cost 3.50 Euro for a small, that's around $4.55! Why? Beer is a Euro more for a large? Crazy!

My ass hurts from riding my bike to kingdom come and back!

I hate grocery shopping here .....the meat is a mystery.

I lady at the cheese counter yelled at me for trying to come within a foot of the cheese that was wrapped in plastic, so I could communicate how much I needed. Need to stop eating cheese!!

We have a strawberry field a half a block away... same strawberries are sold on other end of block a quart cost 2.65 Euro =$3.45. Why were the strawberries cheaper in Utah and they came from Chile?

Why don't girls sleep at sleepovers?
Why didn't I take a sleeping pill and wear ear plugs?
Why is my husband snoring?
I hate sleepovers!!

Parenting truly grows weary during the teenage years. I am exhausted after raising 4 of 5 kids. My youngest is 16 yrs old and on some days I am not sure I have the energy to make it to his adult years. So far, he has been our easiest and I pray it stays that way.
Blessings, andrea

Kathy, I must admit, I kind of giggled at the last part about the sleepover. Even though I have boys - they have sleepovers too - and the same things happen!! The joys of parenthood!!

I'd say take some of that alcohol and cheese and self medicate.

I've never read a post where the mom liked a sleepover. Oy. How am I going to be able to avoid these evil sleepovers. :)

Ha ha my hubby snores too but it took the video cam to convince the hunk. Still believes he slept on the 'wrong side'. ha ha

Thanks for making me laugh.
