In Germany I never had debts or loans. I probably overdrew my checking account at the end of some months, but that was not a big deal, at all. When I moved here I learned that you need a good credit score when you want to be seen by the banks as a valuable client who can be trusted with money. They determine that by how much debt a person accumulates and how this person is paying this debt off.

Man. This. Is. Hard! My stomach feels as if I had rocks for lunch. My heart pounds and I feel as if I am under the influence of a constant delivery of adrenalin. Actually I have no reason to complain.

Nooooooo! Someone snapped our dream house away. When I told the realtor that we are going to buy it, he noticed that it was taken off the market just a half hour before. It was six months listed and no one was interested in it for months.

We found our dream house! In December we hired a realtor to help us find a new house and sell our old one. The realtor gave us clear advice on how to stage our little house to make it more attractive for potential buyers.

My mother really misses me and had a tough time when I decided to move to the U.S. And the times got even harder for her after I left. I am her only child, and she lives alone, and we don’t have a big family.

I am sure I have seen them before. I must have. But for some reason I can’t remember that I ever saw men dressed like that before our visit to Las Vegas. There were important rodeos going on when Andrew and I visited that city, and wherever we went we...
