Guest Post with TJ

I don't like going for more than a couple of days without publishing a blog post, however I simply can't find the time to sit down and write. We leave on Tuesday and this place is a freaking disaster. While one would think that cleaning and packing would become easier and easier each season, being forced to sort through and pick out only the most important and essential items while still staying within a 4 suitcase/1 hockey bag/50 pound luggage restriction is simply becoming painful, difficult and stressful.

With that being said, I've decided to let TJ try his hand at this whole blogging thing. Maybe now he'll understand why I have spent countless hours at the computer this year racking my brain for different topics to write about. Plus, I am OCD about cleaning so he's actually really helping me out by publishing a post for me today :)

I hope you find him entertaining. Here ya go ladies and gents:


Was ist Los! Like Kym said the place is a complete disaster...that's why I am taking some time on the computer to try out my first blog post. I can't tell you how excited I have been for this moment to come. There is so much I could talk about I don't know where to begin. Let's talk about our time here in Germany. We have had our ups and downs but I think overall it has been very enjoyable. The language barrier was hard at the beginning but I am basically fluent in Deutsch now. We would have liked to have seen more while we were here but we didn't have a vehicle for the first three months...because we don't know how to drive stick! haha

Ok lets talk about hockey since that is what brought us to Germany. This season for me was a train ride. It was a very different style than what I was used to playing so it took a month or two to get settled in. Hannover was a great city for us to begin our European journey, the fans were very supportive even though our team underachieved this year. I could talk about this for days but I don't want to get into specific detail :) Im looking forward to the offseason to see my family and friends, and also to work on my golf swing. The one downfall of playing in Europe is not seeing your family for 7 to 8 months. The good thing is we had an early exit and I will get to see plenty of them this summer!

I want to thank all of you for taking the time out of your day to read my first ever blog post...and maybe last!

TJ


PS from Kym - He is absolutely lying about being fluent in Deutsch. thatisallbye!

  7. I loved your PS Kym. I was totally like, "Damn, Deutsch is 8 months? IMPRESSIVE!" hahaha! Safe travels to both of you!

  8. I think an English-speaking person couldnt have problems with German, I usually use lots of my knowledge of English while speaking German, I really do. The languages are really similiar,but well, you have to have a bit of talent for understanding it. (As well as there are Czechs who can´t understand Slovak even while the languages are like siam-twins)

    Anyway, once TJ says he is fluent in Deutsch, he probably knows what does ´die Mannschaft´ mean.

  9. This is the drawback of being the husband of a blogger. I could say that I'm fluent in 12 languages and no one would call my bluff!

  10. LMAO @ Kym's PS!!!

    Thanks for the post TJ! It was quite enjoyable.

    Kymmy (I have a strange urge to call you this. I think it's the hockey nicknames thing. I've started added a -y to the end of everyone's names...) enjoy the packing... heh...

    xoxo
