To Germany and back again!

Hey there! Its been a long time since I've posted a blog on here. I've been letting Matt do all the work. Yep, I'm a slacker...

Well, I thought I'd share a little bit about my trip to Germany!

On the long 10 hour flight to Germany, I had to sit next to a man from India who smelled of curry spice and B.O.! It was horrible, and then there was another couple from India sitting in front of me with a little boy. He couldn’t have been much older than 1 year. He seemed to cry every half hour for 15 min! At first I was able to ignore him as I was engrossed in the book again, but after the flight attendance served us supper, I wanted to sleep so that my Jetlag wouldn’t be so bad. I couldn’t sleep! I tried! I would sit there with my eyes closed, covered my head with the blanket, trying to stretch my legs… But my back kept pinching when I twisted funny, and the little boy crying all the time made it impossible. I put on my headphones and listened to music, but it didn’t help. I think I tried sleeping for 5 hours or more… and then a MIRACLE! I fell asleep – 1 hour before landing. And the Stewardess woke me up for breakfast half an hour later. Ugh.

It was wonderful seeing Kristin again, and we were both tired. She was exhausted from getting all her wedding stuff prepared – and gown fittings where her sleeves didn’t fit – and I was soooooo tired from my flight. I told myself I wouldn’t sleep till 9:00 pm there so I wouldn’t have bad Jetlag… Kristin and I stayed up talking till about 10:30. That night I woke up at 5 am with Jetlag... and I was extremely HOMESICK! Only 12 hours in Germany and I wanted to come home!

Long story short. I helped out with the wedding, got a toothache the fisrt night (After visiting the dentist only 2 weeks earlier - and he said everything looked fine), allergies the next night, and then a sore throat and a massive cold! Whatever could have gone wrong, did. Ok, I didn't loose my wallet, or passport, so I guess I can't comaplain too much.

Needless to say, I was ready to come home and Matt greeted me at the Denver airport with a dozen red roses!!! :) I could go on. But I think this is enough. Matt wants to tell you all about the book signing today...

I'm jealous you got to go! And even though it sounded like not very many things went right, I hope you still had a great time!
