quick brief update

Well the month of Febuary has been sorta crazy... and I really kind of fell off the face of the blogging world until I got a comment from Dull Boy saying something about January 31st. It's been forever! I do have some good excuses though. ;)

In the beginning of Febuary I had to leave my host family because it really was not working out. And I have to say, in the last 2 weeks I've been much happier then I was in the 2.5 months spent with my first host family. I was able to find a second host family who is living around Copenhagen. So now I'm close to the big city! It's made it much easier to meet people and it's made life a bit more fun. My current host family has 3 children. 2 boys- 7 and 11 and 1 girl- 4. They are all fantastic and very sweet! The 11 year old boy speaks English which is quite a relief. And he's quite the comedian actually.

So beyond moving (my goodness i acquired way too much clothing) and adjusting to a new family.... I just spent the last week in Paris! I made sure I saw the most important sights like... the Eiffel Tower etc... and it was a great experience.

So now that I am learning the routine in my second host family, I should be able to blog like I used to.

xoxoxoxo Em

p.s. someone just named there daughter Facebook. I think I'm going to name my daughter Twitter.


  1. that's no good about your host family, their loss, hope the new family works out better.

    ...on the name thing, can i reserve

    (actually i better hope it's not a boy!)

  2. Glad things are working out better for you know! I'm looking forward to reading about your experiences with your new family!

  3. Twitter is a very sexual name for a little girl...make sure it's a boy.

    Glad to see you've moved to a family that's more enjoyable. I looked into being an au pair (I think I've shared that with you?) but I had a lot of reservations about getting along with the family. You were fortunate to find another family so quickly.

    Paris is a great city. I loved it more the first time I was there. The second time I was a little disappointed but that could be because I had "been there, done that" and my travel companions were starting to affect my mood.

    Jealous that you're near Copenhagen though. Like insanely jealous.

    Welcome back :)

  4. you were warned about the clothing ;)
    tu prima.

  5. Sorry to hear about your troubles, but great news you have found a better family! I am so jealous of your Paris travels! :)

  6. Just curious, what was the problem with the first family? I know you don't want to say anything bad about the people involved, I was just wondering how the whole system works, I assume there is a company involved, are there rules and expectations set up ahead of time?

  9. You're becoming like me: falling off the face of the blogging world ;)
