Hi! I’m sorry that I’ve been AWOL for sometime now. Not much in the way of updates, right now. Rob’s back from the field, but it was such good training that the Soldiers were begging to go back out, so they will again, sometime in November.
For some reason, though, I haven’t really felt like blogging. I haven’t really even wanted to read my blogs in my reader. I have been, though, slowly making my way through the reader. Taking my time and lurking.
There isn’t anything going on here, my car’s probably built by now, but it’s not here yet. I can’t wait to see my little bumble bee! 🙂
Codi-puppy is growing fast and while he really doesn’t fit into the little kennel that we were using when he was smaller, he still insists on going in there–sometimes while Casey’s laying in it! Crazy dog! They’re outside playing right now. It’s a bit chilly and the weatherman promised four days of rain. I look forward to the rain. It’s been so dry lately.
This weekend is Oktoberfest, baby! We’re headed to Munich on Friday evening after Rob gets off of work, head down to my all-time favorite German restaurant, have some supper and call it a night. We’ll get up bright and early and head off to the fest. It’ll be the last one that we will be able to attend while we’re still stationed here in Germany. Who knows where we’ll be this time next year, but we’re certain that it’ll be somewhere in the states. We’re kind of hoping for Virgina/Maryland/DC area. I’ve already taken it upon myself to start looking for pet-friendly apartments and I found a couple that I really, really like. Rent is expensive! Ooosh!
Shaved Rob’s head today. He’s opposite that way. It’s been in the low 60s for nearly 3 weeks now and he decided that he wants to shave his head. So, early this morning, Rob asked me to get the clippers and shave his head. We did it outside (clean up is so much easier!) and Codi was trying to eat the tiny pieces of hair that fell to the ground. Of course, he started choking on it (nothing serious…hair just doesn’t taste all the good…)and it made his mouth dry! We couldn’t help but chuckle a little bit.
I still can’t believe that Christmas is right around the corner. I plugged in my iphone into the M3 yesterday and started playing Christmas music. Rob was like, “Okay, we have a new rule. No Christmas music before Halloween. Can you give me that? Just to Halloween and then you can play all the Christmas music you want to. You’ll have like 3 solid months of Christmas music if you want!” I played it anyway. He sang along. HEEHEE! Speaking of Christmas, the stores are already starting to decorate. Christmas trees and lights are popping up everywhere. Since Rob said after Halloween for Christmas music, that means the tree, too! Yup! I’m gonna put up my tree this year–on Nov 1! I love artificial trees! I didn’t get to put up my tree last year because we went to the states for Christmas. I guess I’m just going to make up for lost Christmas tree time!
The tricky thing is going to be to teach Codi he can’t EAT the tree! I’m not entirely sure how I’m going to handle that one yet! I will probably have to treat the lower branches with Bitter Apple, which really does work like a charm. I bought two bottles of the stuff thinking that we were going to need it, but Codi hasn’t really messed with the electrical cords like I thought he would. It only took about a week of spraying the cords down and every time that he got near the cords, but now, he really doesn’t mess with them. So, now I have a bottle and a half of the Bitter Apple Spray that will probably never get used. LOL! Casey used to chew on cords and I didn’t know about Bitter Apple at the time. There were a couple of close calls with Casey and the cords. I’m not sure when he decided that cords weren’t good to chew on, but at some point he stopped. Codi has only chewed through one cord–the cord to Rob’s earphones on his computer. It was an expensive replacement, but that’s the only one he’s destroyed!
Anyway, I’m going to go for now. Much to do, not enough time to do much of anything. Have a great day and thanks for reading!
