OK, I'm a day late- but here it is, BLOGGER PROFILE!
I have known the Frau since, well...since she was born.
This is because she is my sister!
The Frau and her family moved to Germany this past summer and will be there at least two years due to her husband's job. Even though she moved a lot, (I think she went to four highschools growing up), this was a tough move. It was very stressful as her husband went to Germany a few months earlier and the Frau was left to pack up, settle things and navigate the move- oh and calm down an upset teenager who was leaving all her friends and relatives!
Once they arrived in Germany the stress level increased, if that is possible! Apparently, you don't want to move to Europe in August as everyone is "on holiday" or on strike. She couldn't get service people to her home, there was no electricity for days, her cellphone wasn't correct, and no internet access!
Her emails, ( from her husband's work) and her phonecalls ( from her husband's cell) were actually hysterical! I'm sure it wasn't funny to her, but her misadventures and calamities in Germany kept us all amused.
I have saved some of the emails and if she needs material for a post- I think she should write about some of the "incidents." Such as her daughter almost recieving a traffic ticket-on her bike!
When there was no electricity and a note was left to explain-but it was in German. Normally she would go to the computer to translate- but there was NO ELECTRICITY!!
I think this whole experience has been tough for her, but very empowering. I think it has brought them closer as a family as they must rely on each other so much. We do miss them and look forward to visiting this summer.
In the meantime, I have really enjoyed reading her blog and having her tell of her latest adventure or mishap. I reccomend her blog, (and not just because she is my sis and I love her so much) and I think you will have a lot of laughs and get to know a wonderful person.
Check it out!
