Rainy Day

I woke up this morning to a rainy, cool day here in Italy. So cool in fact that Boomer was shivering and willingly let me put his hoodie on him.

Yes my dog has a hoodie. Don't hate.

I had a productive first part of the day with cleaning and working out then before I went to work Boomer and I decided to take like a two hour nap. Rainy days always make me sleepy.

It's time for me to buy galoshes. My pant hems got wet today just walking into the PX. Obviously this needs to be rectified and soon. Since it's payday today, I don't see a better time then the present.

Word on the street that El Asshat is leaving the USO by this Sunday. I think I'll celebrate that day. He's been as douchey as ever and I actually had to restrain myself from today from telling him what a jackass he is. I swear I've never met someone that I've disliked quite so much in my entire life.

Oh and did I mention that when all of us were making our Oktoberfest plans that the boys insisted we were going to camp out? I, being the sane one, asked if everyone really wanted to camp when it was probably going to be cold in Germany in September. People brushed my question off. Now that I've talked to Sean everyone has abandoned the idea and wants a hotel room. The week OF Oktobefest. So....for the last two hours I've been frantically searching every site imaginable and pulling out my trusty Rick Steves guide to see if I can find a hotel for a decent price. It's not looking good.

See..this is why I like planning ahead of time. So I don't end up running around at the last minute like a chicken with my head cut off.

I love rainy days...my pups hate them! I have fleece waterproof hoodies for my girls too. People laugh at me. I wanted to buy them rain boots because they hate going potty when the grass is wet! Haha, my dogs would be the biggest dorks on the block!

Oktoberfest sounds like a blast! I wanna go!

Good luck getting a hotel room! I am so glad they decided not to camp. That would have been miserable and cold! Have fun at Oktoberfest!!!!

You need to have a going away party for El Asshat......I didn't say he had to be invited! I have had 2 parties just like it when some jerk was leaving our unit to go somewhere else. Always great to sit around and share memories of someone you are ready to get rid of! I miss Italy :(

I strongly encourage you to have a fiesta for the departure of El Asshat. Drink margaritas and wear sombreros. :-D

Ugh -- I would never want to camp out and be hung over at the same time, let alone during cold weather. Hope you manage to find something decent that's not too expensive.

I hate it when people can't make up their minds! It drives me insane!
