A boring post about my (hockey) life this week.

TJ's team is officially out of the playoffs and we could be back in the good old US of A as early as Saturday! When management called us this morning to see what day we preferred to fly out I jumped out of bed and did a twirling and singing happy dance in the hallway "I'm going hooooome, la la la la laaaaaa" is my song of choice - and you better believe that I threw in some totally 80s hip thrusts, too.

This time of the year is always so bittersweet for us. I am literally giddy over the fact that I get to go home and be a working part of society again, TJ is looking forward to trading in his hockey sticks for golf clubs, and Brutus can't wait to chase my moms cats and lay freely in the sunshine all day. Yes, he tells me these things. 

I don't feel like writing a sentimental post just yet because hot damn I'm ready to get on out of here, but I'm also very sad to be leaving some wonderful friends, the little guys that I'm 'Auntie' to, and the life that we've adapted to and created here in Germany.

This whole European contract signing beginning in January is new to me and I've been stressing for a couple of weeks now. We have no idea where we will be packing up and moving off to again in a few short months, but TJs agent has been shopping him around so hopefully I have exciting news to share very soon! 

This week is going to consist mainly of cleaning, packing and saying goodbyes, so I apologize in advance for the lack of posts here. I think that a few days away from the blogosphere will be good for me, though - it'll give me a chance to come back refreshed and inspired.

I hope everyone has a Happy Monday and a super productive week =)

  10. Yay! So glad you can do your happy dance ... it's been a long time coming! Don't stress about next season, we never signed our deals until June/July. All in due time my friend! You guys will find something great - and like I experienced, once you have a not-so-fabulous experience, the next one seems perfectly perfect ... until the team folds. JUST KIDDING. Get your little butt home so you can read my hilarious Easter card!
