We have a social event booked for sunday. Bettina has a friend who speaks great english and has a three year old (thats all we require to be your friend over here), so she set us up with them to have brunch. Should be fun to meet some new people and see how they live and have Mayzie have someone to play with. On saturday, there is a knit shop in a town not too far (Backnang) that is having a get together of english speaking knitters, so Jenna is going to go to that.
I am obsessed with obtaining a bike ASAP. These trails are taunting me, beckoning me...I need to be on them NOW. A little ray of sunshine peeks through the clouds and I need to be on a bike. I am yearning. I am specific about the type of bike I want, and unfortunetly, they are not easily available in this area...the Dutch Bike:
Seems weird to be so close to Holland, yet it is difficult to find the bikes here. We have found plenty online, so I think I will have to go that route, although it's a bit risky because of not being able to ride it, etc. We are thinking of going to Holland on a bike mission...kinda spendy for train or renting a car(would have to buy a bike rack), so not too sure if that will happen or not. We have the time! I have dreamt about owning a dutch bike for a long long time--one that will last me forever and be comfy, low maintenance... all the great things about this type of bike. I will pass it down to further generations of Big Kids. A mission will soon ensue, or some ordering will occur from the comfort of our apartment.
All else is good...no neighbor issues for awhile. No word on jobs or anything--everyday at 5, I say to Jenna--"well that was a hard day at the office" hahaha. Laughing all the way to the bank. We'll see how long this lasts...one way or the other.
