Take 261

7 Quick Takes Friday 
--- 1 ---
We went on a tour of Hamburg last week and there was a car show... we kept "oohing and ahhing" over cool cars...

I walked in on this scene in the playroom last week... And I have a sneaking suspicion that I need to require my kids to help set the table more often...

In Germany, if you "Mail" something, you email it. If you "Post" something, it goes out as a letter with a stamp. People keep telling me at work that they'll be mailing me something and I keep thinking, "Why?! That's so inefficient?!" Oh right. Nevermind. You don't mean "Post". Between that and light switches being off in the up position, I'm a little confused over here.

I've been using Mint for over 5 years. I went to add my German bank... aaaaand.... NOPE. It's only for US Banks. I'm in serious mourning over having to change how I watch and manage our family finances. Boo to the serious hoo.

I have a new phone number. An international one. I suspect I'll never be able to memorize it... Because darn it all. I can't. remember. it.

Tonight, I'm grateful for Brian who made the homemade pizza happen. I fully intended to be the pizza-magician... Until we got home and I melted into a laryngitis and cold puddle. Three cheers for the cooking boys in my family! #pestopizzawithchickenandpeppers

We've been working for a month and on Monday next week, the kids will be here! Hooray! Happy almost first day of school!


  1. What do you mean the kids will be here? Did I miss something or has this cold really got you down?

    1. The students of our school have their first day of school on Monday! :) Our children have been in school since we started work... a month ago :)
