I'm Leaving For Germany Tomorrow

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

I just thought I'd let you know that I will be leaving tomorrow for Germany, and won't be back for six weeks (on August 17th).

I don't expect to be able to check in too often while I am gone. I hope all of you have a great summer. I checked the weather report for Hamburg, Germany, and the next ten days is nothing but cold temperatures and rain (most days call for severe thunderstorms). I have my rain jacket and umbrella in my carry-on, so I am definitely prepared!

I'll 'see' you all when I get back!


I am a German citizen, married to a Canadian 29 years, four daughters, one son, seven granddaughters and four grandsons, with one more grandchild on the way in July 2009.

Intolerant to all lectins (including gluten), nightshades (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant) and salicylates.

Asperger Syndrome, Tourette Syndrome, Addison's disease (adrenal insufficiency), hypothyroidism, fatigue syndrome, asthma

Ursa,

Have a good, safe trip! I'll miss you around here, but I know how much you've looked forward to this trip, and I'm so glad you're going to be able to spend some time over there.

Hope that rain goes away quickly and you can enjoy better weather while there.

Take care, and have a nice, relaxing time :)

I don't know if you will still see this, but I hope you have a wonderful time!

We've had lots of rain and thunder here in Holland as well. Yesterday evening we had lightning cracking straight above the house, scary...
