Today I have a cough that won't go away, so I went to Schlecker and the Apotheke to stock up on cough remedies. I got an herbal tea, some terrible tasting throat lozenges (although I have actually stopped coughing, now that I'm sucking on one), and some Meditonsin, which is a homeopathic remedy. Hopefully something here will work and I'll be cough free soon.
On the apartment front, I'm still living in the rented room with the Italians. I emailed my real estate agent this afternoon and asked him if he could give me any details or updates on the apartment that I signed a contract for (no money transaction yet, though), and he wrote back that on Monday he handed all of my paperwork over to the manager of the building where I am going to live, and that she would from now on be my contact. He included her email address in the message, so I emailed her and asked her if she could send me any news. Hopefully she'll get back to me soon and let me know when I can get the keys and where I need to send my money. I've only got this room until Saturday, so if I can't move to my new place this weekend I'll have to make further housing arrangements so I'm not left out in the cold. I can't tell you how happy I'm going to be when I finally have the keys to my own apartment in my hand.
