Typical Tuesday

So in between medieval castle visits, nude beach picnics, and beer garden sit ins life is pretty normal Monday thru Friday here in Munich, Germany.  On MainlyMaren I talk mostly about the glamorous exciting side of international living but there is also a normal side that involves the majority of my week.

A Day In the Life of Maren:

-Every morning I wake up at 5:30 a.m.to get ready for my commute into work.  This trip involves a subway filled with charcoal suits and chic sharp dressers making my brightly colored casual wear stand out like a Floridian in a Boston airport.  Much different than my past commute driving by the soccer fields and THE country club.  

-Somethings do not change...On special occasions I stop for a cappuccino from the local bakery stand although nowadays it is not a Starbucks from my high school days.  

-I then spend the next 8 hours not teaching improper fractions but rather math concepts a few steps back, like say, what a number 7 looks like.  

-The highlight of Tuesdays is always after work when my friend and I grab a drink.  Usually in winter it involves a coffee shop but with the warmer weather the drinks are now a bit more tropical (and adult like). It is great to have girl time.
 -When we finish, I spend the next hour engaging in my latest read on the commuter train back home. For the record, this is the most I have ever read in my life.  Sometimes I can't wait to get on the train just so I can get back into my book. (Nerd alert...)  

-Husband usually spoils me with a hot dinner when I arrive at home. Poor guy...at least I'm still baking.
-Then I spend the next few hours talking to Husband, playing with the dog, watching old school American T.V, or pinning an unhealthy amount of pictures online.
-10:30 is bedtime but my mind doesn't stop running until around midnight after I have realized 8 hours of sleep is not a reality. Thus causing a special occasion cappuccino in the morning.

So this is a bit of the truth about living abroad.  Somethings stay the same on either side of the ocean and others provide new experiences.  It is now 9:45 p.m. Tuesday and I hear a bubble bath calling my name.

Happy Tuna Tuesday,
