I have taken no new pictures since my peek into the mysterious world of the Narrenzunft (Narrenzunft) on Tuesday. My world has been filled with little tasks that take ages to complete.
Most critically, our home phone doesn’t work. It hasn’t worked since the “big” upgrade on December 22. I am most unhappy and my cable company is most unhelpful. Today I received an email that they were “unable to reach me by phone to fix this problem”. Um. Really?
All three of our big boys have big going-ons in their lives right now, thank God for Skype & messenger so I can still talk to them and hold their hands and walk them through these changes. Not that Christian will let me. All I get is “No info” every single time I try to figure out where the Marines are sending him. And when. And for how long. I even tried bribing him with boxes of German candy. No info. I hate deployments.
Nicholas, on the other hand, is finally making big strides to become a grown-up. He’s a little late to blossom, but the realization has hit that he is an adult. And it’s scary. Luckily he’s got his brothers, his grandparents, and us to be there every step of the way. I have fingers & toes crossed that he stays on this grown-up path (and half a Cathedral full of candles lit, it can’t hurt).
But the biggest news, my favoritest news, Soren is coming to Germany! I get him for two whole weeks in February. Him, and the new girlfriend Lindsay, and MY BABY SISTER! Soren bought my beautiful baby sister a ticket to come to Germany to see me. I’m not sure who cried more, me or Manon. This is the best gift he could’ve given me. It’s been three years since Soren’s college graduation. Three years since I’ve seen her. I am SO EXCITED!
