Hell.

We have been here in line for nine days. And zee Germans are so rude! Cutting in line, or letting 20 friends cut ahead of them.

This evening was the ONLY opportunity we had to do some shopping. I’ve been working late nights this past week, as well as most of today, and the shops aren’t open on Sundays. I just got all the back-pay owed me over the past few months, and Martin and I refuse to wait another week to finally get our bedroom set!!

It had to be done. And now that’s done, I don’t intend on stepping foot in IKEA again for at least a year!!!

Or three months, if I’m being honest.

On another note … The ninth Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force Jim Binnicker passed away today. He did a lot for the enlisted corps, and was a great mentor to many! I was very fortunate to cross paths with him a few times in my career. He really cared about Airmen and their families, and continued to work and support them long after he retired. I’m not surprised at all by all the kind words I see others posting about him, too.
