I'm sorry I haven't written anything in a few days. Since I'm trying to make this blog about the craft projects I do with K or about decorating tips we use in her room and the rest of the house, I don't have much to draw on since most of my time is consumed with packing. I'm at that stage where I don't know what else to pack since most everything left is the stuff we use in our daily lives and I don't want to pack too much of K's stuff so that she still has toys out to play with, etc. I've started taking Zyrtec on the days when my allergies are really bad (on a recommendation from one of my friends) and thankfully it seems to work. It's a one-a-day kind of thing which is great for me since I hate taking pills of any sort.
We did have a very fun time on Saturday. We packed ourselves in the car and drove out to Cincy for a very authentic Oktoberfest. A friend of ours (the same one who recommended the Zyrtec) and her family have been attending this particular Oktoberfest for years and she even used to do the Schuhplattler dancing where you slap your thighs and hands in time to the music (a la National Lampoon European Vacation). Anyway, it was a lot of fun and I pigged out on Goulash, sauerkraut, and potato pancakes. My family would have been so proud ;) The only ethnic German thing I passed on was the bier. I'm still not a beer drinker but A had a stein full so between the two of us, we covered it all. The only down side was that it rained but Little Bear loved it because she got to splash in the puddles to her hearts content. When it was time to go home, we took off her soggy pants and shoes and wrapped her in my fleece coat that stayed nice and dry under my rain jacket. All in all, it was a great time had by all.
