Don't Tell My Children, They'll Gag.

When we learned that Spousal Unit was selected for the new position, we jumped for joy. Then, as reality set in, we both looked at each other and said, "What have we done"?

Well, my solution, after creating thirty bazillion to-do lists, was to hop on the internet. As many of you know, I belong to lots of Recycling and FreeCycling groups. I figured that there had to be groups that addressed information on the new location.

In fact there are. I joined them and have been gleening information ever since.

Well, to belong to these groups, one must be an active member and have a Bio on file. They must have lost my original Bio.

I just created a new one. I wonder how much will be posted??? Hmmmm.

Hey Julia,

My name is She Who. I am married, for 29 years. We are retired AF and husband recently accepted a position in Germany. We lived there back in the "Dark Ages" and dreamed of returning some day.

Dreams do come true and the DH will be coming over May 08. I will follow in Oct 08.

I have a few loose ends to tie up. Get the grown children out of the nest and settled, new paint, carpet, formica, landscaping, etc. to get the house ready for rental. Don't ya love doing all the stuff, for other people to live in your house?

Oh, I also have three weddings to attend this Summer. I have now told everyone I know, that haven't invited me to a wedding or other event, that I now dislike them and all of their offspring, so don't invite me to anything. Yeah, right.

The last is the nephew's, and Sister, dearest, threatened to disown me if I didn't attend. Yup, the nephew's is in October. So, I don't see the rationale of coming over, and turning right around, to come back to the States.

Enough of the dribble.

We are old. By most group members ages.

We enjoy traveling and plan to make the next 4-5 years a second honeymoon. Don't tell my children, they'll gag.

We enjoy good food and hope to be able to afford to eat out, every now and again. Euro...stop that stuff, right now. Dollar get stronger. I have spoken.

I enjoy Blogging, reading, museums, volksmarching, photography, cooking, and gardening.

My German is really, really rusty. I used to speak, just well enough to go anywhere with no problem, and found that after a beer or two became quite fluent.

I enjoy shopping and have found that going with a girlfriend and getting lost, is one of the best things to do in Europe. I love adventures.

Feel free to post, cut, or paste what you deem appropriate.
