Let the countdown begin…

it’s only 20 more days until Christmas Eve! How insane! Can you believe it? I have to say, the year went by really quickly… although, if I think about how many people I haven’t seen in such a long (!) time, it doesn’t seem so quick anymore. Weird time feeling.

As you may have noticed, I also started another countdown in my sidebar! Yay! I’ll be in Germany in less than two (!) weeks! In 13 days, to be exact.
I was finally! able to book my flight, because I had postponed it a couple of times while we were figuring some things out.
We had initially planned to stay over New Year’s, but we had to change our plans a little bit and now I’ll be in Germany from the 18th to the 29th of December!

Yes, I said “I’ll be in Germany…“, because unfortunately J won’t be going with me. His brother is visiting from China right now and he’ll be staying for Christmas. When J found out, he decided that he wanted to spend Christmas with his family, because he hadn’t seen his brother since our wedding last year [remember?] and it doesn’t look like they’ll be able to spend time together again any time soon. So, I do understand his reasons, although I wish we could go to Germany together and go to the Christmas market! to get drunk on mulled wine :)

I talked to my supervisor and I asked him if I could leave a little earlier than I had planned, so that I can be back home to celebrate New Year’s with J and still get some decent time in Germany with my family :) I have a great boss, because he said it wasn’t a problem at all!

Obviously, I am bummed that I won’t spend Christmas with J, but at the same time I am thrilled to be with my family for Christmas and I know that he’s really looking forward to spending time with his brother! So it’s all good… and we’ll have New Year’s together which will be great and which will also mark our 2nd [civil] wedding anniversary!

P.S. For everyone who is still interested in joining the Christmas Card Exchange and who hasn’t sent me their addresses yet. Do it now! I know you want to :)
