Just some stuff....
~Isn't it amazing that we can just freely hop on a plane and visit a country our grandparents had to fight dangerously escape or be sent to a concentration camp? Not all of the relatives were so lucky. That wasn't even that long ago. We are so fortunate to have come from such strong and brave women. Thanks to my ancestry.com addiction I can even find the exact house they lived in. Cool and kind of creepy. Perhaps the creepy part is that I can see all this information because there are other people who collected the data and they didn't even know my grand-parents or great grandparents. They just love Jewish history. I'm glad someone did a lot of the work for me! Anyway, had those brave women not escaped we would not exist.
~The other amazing thing these days is Spotify. It's like Napster except it's legal. It's also like crack because it's addictive.
~I have accomplished another goal. I have grown my bangs out. My hair is finally the style I always wanted. I have no idea what happens now but having good hair will make every aspect of my life more tolerable. Well, ok, I will be more tolerable to the people around me.
~I have a plan to do nothing but get stuff for me done in the next couple days. I probably shouldn't say that because once you say you are doing stuff for yourself people get all mad at you. I am nervous about leaving my husband for 2 weeks without leaving detailed lists about every aspect of our lives just in case something happens.Choo never know! I need to lay out where I get the special cat food, where I get the chips he likes, what pharmacy to go to, when the water bill is due, which clothes to hang dry and which to put in the dryer- stuff like that. It's hard to enjoy yourself when you are worried about the people and things you love. And that is not about them, that is about me. Also, I need to do very important things like make playlists, get memory cards, make sure all my black t-shirts still fit, find a good travel umbrella.
~It's been a few weeks and I still totally love my Nook Color. I'm reading so much more. LOVE it.
~My etsy shop will be closed while we are on vacation. Enjoy free domestic shipping this weekend on ALL items in my shop with coupon code AUSTRIA. International customers can save 10% with coupon code ITALY. Thanks for looking!
[note: Our maternal grandparents escaped from Russia. In this case I am speaking about our paternal side who escaped from Austria.]
