Angry at the Weather!!!
(*click the picture for larger image*)
Find 4 things that are wrong with this picture...
Did you find them?
The answers are here:
1. I am wearing a sweater!!!
2. That big white box it's a heater.... and it's on.
3. That yellow thing hanging outside... that used to be part of our shower.
4. Yes, those are binoculars.
So today Dirk and I went to a million different offices around town. It's a looong story but basically we are trying to get our Seguin, Guadalupe County marriage licence to be valid in Germany! Everything here has to be so "official." We need to get a translator (which are sooo expensive! So Memo, I think i figured out your future... become a translator and you will make big bucks!) Anyways, I was freezing the whole time we were walking around the city and taking trams from office to office until the final stop A MALL! It is the mall that is connected to the "central tram station" (aka 'zenti') When we got off of the tram i saw that big clock thingy they have there with the temperature and it read 7!!!!!!!!!!! 7 freaking degrees Celsius! (45* F) Are you kidding?? It is JUNE.....? right? So we went in and bought a jacket!! I was soo angry that 1, i was buying a jacket in june, and 2 that i have a million at home without use!.
Does this look like summer to you? Noooooooo!
The heater, it is on. Upon my request of course. They were like what?! It's summer?? Why the heater? I was like hell-O?? Apparently just because it is the month of June doesn't mean it gets warm around here. I sleep next to this nice heater =).
Dirk and I kinda re-did the shower a little. I'm spoiled and like a shower curtain =). They have a tub and i guess I'm clumsy because after i would shower the WHOLE restroom would be soaked! So "we" installed a new shower head, and a curtain! Now the old one was left outside to dry...for now. We have already been informed that once we leave it will come back! hehe :P
And the binoculars.... The first day we got here, I asked why there were no curtains in the windows and my mom-in-law said it was so the 'sun could come in and plus then you can't spy on the neighbors.' (in the most non-creepy way possible) I was like...? huh The neighbors are really far away! And that is when she pointed at the binoculars and started cracking up! I think she was joking for the most part... but I have taken it up as a hobby! hahaha jk! YEa... mostly to check for ugly clouds coming my way to ruin my sun-time! grrrr
So yes, i am angry at the weather and it better get better soon because who knows what i will take it out on next! The whole restroom has been re-vamped what is next the kitchen!? I just have to leave these peeps house how they like it man... hehe
p.s. I have confirmed my mom-in-law is in fact human! The warmest, kindest ever by the way. She ate the food I cooked TWICE aNd, Dirk said he thinks he saw her go in the bathroom yesterday morning! ;)
