Hello from My Balcony

Hi!  Jesse found out we can pay a few euros a day for internet from the hotel down the road.  But the signal is bad and so the only way we can get it is by sitting on the very corner of our balcony!  And the sun just went down so it's getting a little cold... gotta hurry...

Jesse was bound and determined to get internet this week but our CAR decided to crap out on us after only a WEEK of being adopted into our family!  We were not happy with her... but thankfully all she wanted was a new fuel pump, which the nice mechanic down the road says he'll have by tomorrow and will install for us as soon as he can fit us in.  In the meantime, Jesse is bumming rides to work and being kind of stressed.

Well, he's not stressed now that we know we aren't carless... for long ;o)  But that's the reason I'm not so sure that he'll be able to get us internet by this weekend, like he'd hoped.  Maybe he will... we shall see. 

Also, we have a fully fridge/pantry of food, so no worries! 

I walked around Otterberg today and got lost.  It's got a lot more twisty-turney streets than Ramstein.  I wasn't technically lost... just stuck going the wrong direction! :o)  Also, the sidewalks are NOT double-stroller friendly.  At. All.  Thankfully, the drivers are very pedestrian-minded. 

I don't really have much else to say tonight and that's good cause my teeth are starting to chatter and I want to go snuggle on the couch with My Love. 

But I did want to say that I love you all.  I love reading your comments when I get the chance.  And I can't wait to show you how much fun we've been having!  PSCing to another country is stressful and tough... but we are starting to catch our breath now... and once we have internet we'll be good to go! 

Have I got some pictures for YOU! ;o)



  1. When I saw you on facebook I thought you were officially back! :) I'm glad the car situation seems to be an easy fix! Praying it gets done quickly and smoothly! Can't wait to see all of the pictures and learn about your house/town/life!

  2. yay!!!!!! couldn't believe what i was seeing but am soooo glad to hear from your side of the planet! sounds like you have had some challenges- praying for you all. did you get rid of the car you took over? well, i'll save the questions for another time- only have a million and one of them =) LOVE. YOU. GUYS....

  3. thanks for braving the cold to post!
    How are you feeling Jessica? any lingering symptoms? praying not...

    sorry, i know i said (previous post) i would save all the questions for another time but, you know me and self-control...

  4. Hello from my couch! :) I think you should have just got a coat and dealt with the cold. I mean, c'mon, really?! Stop being so selfish! ;) I'm glad your newest addition didn't misbehave *too* badly. and that you're out and about gettin' lost and what not. Sounds rather fun! :) I can't wait to see the pics. C'mon Germany! Get this girl her internet!

  5. I think about you and all the changes you're enduring with the new experience. You're incredible for taking on the challenge. This will all soon be a memory that you pull up when you think to yourself, "do you remember when we first moved over here and it felt so weird and foreign...?" We love you so much. Thank you for reaching out to us when you can.

  6. hey guys,
    just wanted to say we are thinking of you, praying for you and missing you like crazy...
    love you much
