Jetlag Sucks

I can hardly keep my eyes open even though it is only 3:30pm here in Germany. I was up at 4:00am this morning and it was not pretty. I am hoping that tonight is better! I think that part of the problem might be that our room is FRIDGID at night. I am going to have to get Deaner to look at that tonight before bedtime! In other news, we are having some issues with the Jeep. Deaner and I drove it yesterday and couldn't figure out why the heat wasn't getting hot very fast. I probably wouldn't have thought about it again but when we pulled back in the driveway last night there was a weird dinging sound and we couldn't figure out what it meant. Thank god Deaner ended up taking the Jeep to work this morning or else the issue wouldn't have been apparent to us until I took it to pick up Steph and Jon at the airport in the morning, which would not have been good. Deaner said that by the time he got to work the Jeep was about to overheat. Not good. After thinking we wouldn't be able to get it fixed until Thursday Deaner found the part that we needed at the Jeep dealership in Wiesbaden and found someone to install it. Thank god that it worked and that it was actually the problem. I was getting really nervous that I wouldn't be able to fetch Steph and Jon at the airport tomorrow! Too bad we had to spend money on something stupid like that. That always seems to happen to us!

Today I have unpacked all six of our bags. Everything is put away and organized. Dinner is in the slow cooker. Now all I have to do is stay awake until bedtime. It is not going to be easy!

I know this is random, but we really need a coat rack. Any suggestions about where to look will be appreciated!! :)

Sounds like your thermostat was baked.

SO glad Deaner knows what to do when the Jeep acts up. Lucky you!

I love your pic of the castle. That is one of my favs. My sister took me to see that one. It's a pretty neat castle.
