Only a Month Left!

I can't believe we have less than a month left in Graz. It won't really hit me fully until we are gone and unpacking in a new unfamiliar city. We're trying to see our friends as much as possible before we leave (in between packing and working). I remember when I was upset the first 3 days we moved to Graz and it was rainy and cold and I was having second thoughts, Art said, "When it's time for us to leave here, which will come sooner than you think, you'll be sad to leave all the great friends you'll have then". I might have shrugged him off and said "but there's an Alf sticker saying something in German on our bathroom door...I mean..does it get worse than that?"

Our Aussie friends, Lee and Andrew, took us to brunch at the Opera House today..a monthly occurrence there. It was delightful.

We had a nice little surprise concert from an Australian violinist.

Tuesday was a holiday, May Day, and we spent it with our new American friends, Wendy and Eric, who've been here about a month now.
I'm sad we didn't get to spend more time with them.  As you can imagine, we have lots to wasn't long ago that we were in their position.

Tuesday was also my mom's birthday.
My sister Molly did a cute tribute to her on her blog.

My mom, dad and Molly will all be in Pittsburgh when we arrive!  They will get our dishes, towels, bedding, etc. and set up our apartment a bit before we get there.  Also bringing lots of our brand new wedding gifts from 3 years ago that we've never used.  Hello All Clad set!  ha.  We can't wait to see them!

OMG, one month to go! How come you can fly at 7 months?? Scandinavia is the way to go: if I ever have children, I moving there as they have super generous maternity benefits & the best school system in Europe I think!
Just got back from 2 weeks in Italy - update coming soon!

Carolyn, I can't believe you are coming back in a month. That's so surreal. Enjoy Graz to the fullest. You look great!!! Let me know when you get on this side of the Atlantic ocean. Monika, detroit
