What I didn't blog about this week

Sunday - Max finally arrived and we decided to take advantage of the favorable exchange rate by going suit shopping for him. On any given day in Germany, I lounge around in hausfrau attire, while Max lives in 3-piece ensembles. During our afternoon shopping spree, Max purchased 3 suits, 1 sports jacket, 3 dress shirts, 2 ties, shoes, socks, and a belt.

Monday – With the cat away (a.k.a. Max back at the office), I decided what was good for the geese was good for the gander. The fact is I needed to improve my hausfrau wardrobe and went shopping at Ann Taylor for a new, more put together, look. Navy, kelly green, pale yellow—the colors and styles in the store remind me of the early-80s preppy fad. Can anyone tell me if there is a German word for “preppy?”

By the way, with our combined purchases, Max and I ended up borrowing a suitcase for the trip home.

Sunday - Thursday – Many wonderful, albeit short, visits with friends. I’ve run all over town, filling up every last minute, and have loved every minute of it.

Wednesday – A disturbing e-mail from a friend who is watching Charlie while we are away. She says he has been an uncharacteristically bad boy. Trust me--there is a weird twist to this story, which I am debating whether or not to share.

Friday –After we return to Germany, we will only have a few days before we leave for another vacation. Have I mentioned I’m going to Italy for 10 days? We leave next Thursday!

ITALY??? I'm so jealous! I would live there too.

Poor Charlie. He's had a LOT of changes in his life lately, so it is understandable if he is protesting being left once again.

Italy sucks! Yeah, I totally mean that and I think MINI Coopers are crappy cars too! Yes, I'm feeling fiesty and playful.
