I find that going paperless is a struggle. I believe that it's the way of the future, but not everyone has gotten that memo yet. And when I say it's a struggle, it's not so much on my end, I've been working at it for a couple of years now. It's because we get bombarded with paper all day long.
Life as an Expat has been quite busy this month. As in super busy. April is not even over yet but I have done loads, it was full of big things to be grateful for. One thing about moving abroad is that you get visitors. You also get more excited to travel, even if to the town next door. I remember my parents (mainly my dad's ideas) surprising us with day trips when we were small and teens. Obviously as a small child I had no say and as a teen I had a say, but I still had to go... I was not always excited to be stuck in the car with my parents and brother, but hey, these are the memories that I have now and I am truly grateful that we've had those bonding moments.
So, you are all excited, living the dream in Germany and of course, you have all those places in your head that you want to visit, why not? After all, it's Germany, in the middle of Europe, so many places to see, so much to do... Booking train tickets in Germany is easier than it might seem in the beginning.
Victoria came home from school on Wednesday saying that her teacher told her she could bring a cake or cupcakes to school on her birthday (the next day). Actually we had this conversation at around 5:30 or 6 that evening. I asked her if she wanted to bring a cake, and she did, of course, what an idiotic question to an 8, now 9 year old, but one has to try, it's a 50-50% chance after all... Being the amazing and perfect mother that I am, cough, cough... I took her to the supermarket to get a pre-made cake. Yes, you heard it right, pre-made.
