How did you choose your iV screenname? I'm pretty much always called Grace, but my mom used to call me Gracie Lou when she was teasing me...
Valentine's Day - Romantic or over-rated? Over rated. I don't think DH and I have ever really had a valentines day that lived up to my expectations (ie. I always hope for a dinner out or flowers or something, and he typically works late that day, or picks a fight with me), so I have just given up having expectations at all.
What are you looking forward to this month? Acclimating. I'm hoping to make some friends and find some things to do with my time, get more comfortable with my surroundings etc.
AFM- We moved here to Germany last week. For some reason in my mind, the hardest part about the move was the flight, and I thought once that was over it would be all sunshine and roses. Honestly the flight was the easiest thing so far. Starting as soon as we left the airport in Munich, things have been difficult and frustrating. The weather is bitter cold, and we have no car. We were assigned an apartment in the village instead of in the city, so nothing is very close, and we're having to walk all over the place in freezing cold weather to get anything done. Our apartment is pretty much terrible, and jet lag has been awful. ~end of rant~ Aside from all that, things are great! Dylan likes his new job, coworkers, and boss, the boys are growing, and learning. David still doesn't really talk, or sign, but he's getting smarter and cuter by the day. James is getting really good at pretend play, which is adorable to watch! I'm looking forward to hopefully meeting more people, the weather warming up a little, and starting to feel a little more at home here.
Grace- It must be so hard to move to a foreign country. I can't imagine. I know when I went to France just to visit for 2 weeks I felt lost. I hope your transition goes smoothly and you get to know some people. Do you know any German or are you going to have to totally learn the new language? I know once I was exposed to the language I came home pretty fluent in French. Of course now I have totally lost it and I can't speak a word.
Ash- Thanks for the good luck with DH's job. It seems his boss was pretty stressed out over the super bowl last week and he just blew up. However, I think DH is ready to move on anyway one becuase he knows he's not going to make any more money and two I think he's ready for a change. Also his boss has said that they need to get the website numbers up and he's afraid he could get fired a few months down the road. So he has started applying for other jobs. But for now I guess things are OK.
Well, I am heading to the doctor at 11. I was playing xbox kinect with David. He loves to play. I was doing skiing and I jumped for a hill and I landed funny on my foot and heard a pop. It wasn't that bad at first but this morning it has started to swell and I can't walk on it at all. I thought we were done with doctor visits for awhile. I guess better me than David though. I was supposed to take him swimming at the indoor pool on Thursday but I think I'm going to wait a few weeks to go as I have a feeling it may take a little while for me to heal.

Sandy - sorry about your wii accident! Hopefully it's nothing serious!
Grace - I'm sure the adjustment must be so hard. That cold weather can't help! Ash makes some good points though, so hopefully things will get better with time! All the best of luck!!
AFM - we're all sick. Elia had
