Paris here we come!

So not much to update since the last time. I'm trying to think what we even did the past two weeks. Well last weekend was roller derby nationals in Atlanta, GA and is the first time we haven't gone to nationals in...4 years! We have gone the past 4 years so it was a little sad not to be there. However they do stream it live for a small fee so we did that so last weekend lots of roller derby was watched! Luckily it was on the east coast so it was only 6 hours difference so we didn't stay up too too late (Sat I think we got to bed at like 3am) and we got to watch Gotham win again! It was fun watching from the couch, but I much prefer to be there. I mean when I would be yelling at the TV and clapping and cheering when something good happened and it is just not the same when it is just me doing that. The claps echo in the room...Next year is going to be in Milwaukee which I don't really know anything about, but apparently they have a lot of vegan food. We shall see if we make it there.

Let's see what else....At Raymond's coworkers housewarming party I was talking with a lady who just started her own business and she was saying she needed help with accounting things. We met last week and I started helping her with a budget and such and I am pretty excited about it. She doesn't have a lot to spend, but it is fun and gives me something to do. The plan is to meet once a week and go over everything and help out where I can. Fun!

Hmm....That is about it I guess. Oh one other thing - Raymond came home last week and told me how they forced his team lead to take a vacation. Apparently he hadn't taken time off in a while and was looking a little stressed so he has to go take some time off. Crazy! We also went out to eat last Friday and ran into one of Raymond's coworkers and his girlfriend I think. We were talking and Raymond was saying he hasn't used any of his vacation yet and they were just like what?!? You got here in June and you haven't taken a vacation yet?? Which is just completely different from the you are going on vacation?? mentality I am used to. Different in a good way.

Alright well Raymond is home now so off to get packed and ready to head to Paris in the morning!! I am so excited! We are going to eat lots of good food hopefully and wander. It is going to be nice having a week in the city as last time it was only 2 days. Then next weekend we have the first European roller derby tournament to go to right here in Berlin! I am very excited!! I should have lots to post about once we get back :)
