Welcome to Germany Charmian!?!
After that little run in, I thought "Man, I gotta learn German" But it wasn't until today that I actually pulled out my German CD's and started my lessons again.
Every morning I take the girls outside to go potty and when I do there is a little old lady who watches us from her window. She always has a huge smile on her face. When I finally noticed her there I hollered up to her "guten Morgen!" (Good Morning) and I waved. Well in the last couple of days she's really come out of her shell and this morning she was down right chatty. I hated that she was being so nice to me and I wasn't able to understand a thing she was saying.
So that's it, enoughs enough, this girl is learning German.
...well as quickly as one can learn another language.
