Sorry about that everyone! I didn't mean to be absent for the past week, but I was stuck at home and didn't get to post until today. When I checked my email this morning I actually had several emails from my parents asking if I was ok, because they hadn't heard from me in so long. I'm ok...just technologically deprived.
Now for the Updates:
Our car is in Europe! Sean got an email saying our car was in Germany and we needed to register it before they would send it down here, so we are taking care of that business today.
However, our household stuff/unaccompanied baggage is still MIA. Sean is convinced they lost it.
Last weekend, Sean and I ventured down to the butcher shop in our town. I was extremely nervous since I was going to be the one talking in a language I'm still learning, but it went surprisingly well! I managed to get us a kilo of bacon and two whole quail without confusing the crap out of the man behind the counter AND I did it completely in Italian. Now...I'm not saying it was complete sentences, but it was painless! You have no idea how excited I was.
This week I've been stuck at home because Sean hasn't had to work that much since the rest of the battalion and well most of everyone on post is elsewhere training. He's been going to PT, a few hours of work and then been dropped off. However, today we rented a car until we get our car and so we actually have transportation without relying on someone else. To say we are excited is an understatement.
Sean and I were mainly on post today to take our SETAF driver's test to get our license. We both passed, but we did have a little bet going on. I missed one question, but Sean missed two, so he owes me a 20 minute backrub. Victory is mine!
This weekend we are planning on going to Verona for a day. I'm excited about it! They have the third largest Roman colissum there (only behind Rome and one around Naples) and the "fake" Juliet house is there too. I'm not really that excited about that, mainly just excited about actually going to explore.
I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend! I missed all of you!
