APRILI started the month by running the Cooper River Bridge Run (10k) and it was my worst run, maybe ever... at least mentally. We'll save the actual worse run ever for September.
I shared "Things You Learn When You Move to Charleston"
We selected furniture for House.
I bought skinny jeans.
We took an impromptu trip to NC with Mike and Suzi (the motorcycles) where we stayed with Teh WJL and Teh Dad made me cry.
We bought a trailer.
We finally got a closing date of May 3rd.
We met German Girl 1's family and we went on our 2nd Brews Cruise.
Teh Blog turned 5!
I delivered my first Shit Teh German Said post.
I completed my German lessons on Duolingo!
House progress was significant! Floors and fixtures and cabinets and counters and paint,
MAYWe bought a HOUSE!
So many awesome people helped us move and get settled in.
Hue lights entered our lives and we have never been the same.
I gardened. It sucked.
Teh German found more mold and I was afraid we were going to have to burn down our brand new house.
I took a Myers-Briggs test for shits and giggles.
Our first house construction project went down.
I almost throat punched our fence contractor.
I told my Gentle Readers about the things I've never done.
JUNEThere was some radio silence while I was in Germany.
I broke that silence to talk about Brock Turner and Rape. Rereading that post was difficult. Yet, It is probably the post I am most proud of writing this entire year.
Due to a language barrier, I went into a men's restroom in Germany.
I learned what a toilet brush is actually for (cleaning skid marks).
Got my last perm for a while. I'm ready for some straight hair again.
We started the process of stalking Baloo (Teh German's new truck).
Teh Dad decided to surprise us and come for our House warming party, AFTER Teh Mom had confirmed she was coming. Nothing like a little family awkwardness to really get the party going.
