Random Ramblings

*Why, oh why, can't our commissary carry more flavors of coffee creamer?

*There are only two of us. How does our kitchen get so full of dirty dishes?

*Facing a possible 3 years without a job. I'm not going to lie, all of that free time is a little bit daunting.

*Why are hydrangeas the only plant I can keep alive?

*I can't help but be a teensy bit hurt when I lose a follower. I've lost 2 recently.

*Slugs are disgusting. And they are literally EVERYWHERE here in Germany. I want to salt our backyard, but I don't have the heart to kill them.

*I never knew the weather in Germany was so much like the weather in Arkansas. If you don't like it, wait 5 minutes and it will change.

*Who knew it would be so difficult to find a good used car?

*Why do I always stub my pinkie toes and none of the others? I think the big toe would hurt less. (Currently my right pinkie toe is black from a stubbing yesterday.)

*I'm actually excited about getting involved in volunteering and squadron activities.

*Meal planning rocks! Our next three weeks are all planned out. (Planning makes me happy).

*How in the world did Mondo escape being in the bottom three last week on Project Runway? A purple top with polka dot pants. What?!

*I just discovered that I've been using clothes washer tablets in the dishwasher. No wonder the dishes never get completely clean! (Hey, the writing's all in German; don't judge.)

*I can't wait for Modern Family to start in September. Funniest. Show. On. TV.

*Happy Monday Everyone!

I have been told about AAFES and the commissary that you pretty much go there to see what they *don't* have. Sad but at times, true.

Slugs are gross. Thankfully, I have yet to see any. I'm very squeamish.

I hear you BIG TIME on the job frustration. The worst is when I'm talking to a non-military person and they ask "what do you do?" and I have to reply "I'm a housewife." In my twenties with no kids, I get looks of patheticness when I say that. It sucks. Big time.

I totally understand your first frustration! I remember reading your blog before you came here and drooling over the flavors that you mentioned. We usually get good flavors around Christmas, at least.

Haha...sorry for laughing but a lot of the things you posted are my frustrations as well!

Seriously....what is with the slugs?! They're everywhere around my house, and leave that nasty shiny goo behind!

I also LOVE Modern Family. It's hilarious!

Yeah, my friends back home (where EVERYONE has full time careers) always ask "so what do you do all day?" Luckily I start working in October, which is a good thing 'cause otherwise Mr. F would probably want to have kids and I'm not quite ready for them! :-)

You're right, it kind of does hurt to lose a follower especially when you've been updating regularly. Oh well. It's them not you. :) I got my husband in trouble for swearing in the commissary - I don't remember the incident, but I was probably walking around going "What the F***!?" I could never find anything I wanted. LOL!

this is one of my biggest fears if we move to Belgium next - no job :( I don't know what I would do!

I just love you Kendra!

I love Modern Family, too! Though I have to admit I'm more looking forward to DWTS.

I think you are so cute!

I just love random thoughts! And I don't know where all the dirty dishes come from either. And where does the laundry come from too? Don't worry about 3 yrs without a job...enjoy the time to explore...write about it!!! And never worry about losing followers. I lose followers EVERY day. You always get more.
