Surprise Call


With it being April Fools Day and all I expected at least one prank call. To my surprise I received a call from my host mom back from when I was an Au Pair in the US.

That call really made my day. I was an Au Pair from 1996-1997 and we always managed to keep in touch. The last time we had seen each other was in 2004 or 2005 and sadly we kind of lost touch after that.

Last Monday I tried to track "my second family" down and was on to something. Imagine my surprise as she told me that she'd been trying to track me down at the same time. Faith huh?

I am so glad to be in touch again and I would love to see my host mom and "little brothers" again...

Keep your fingers crossed :)

How fun! I sent a letter a couple of years ago to my host family for my Germany-US interchange in 1983-84, and didn't hear back. I discovered later that I didn't have the address completely correct (but it's a small town and I assumed that it was complete enough). I keep going back and forth on sending another one to them...should I? (What if they got the first one and I'm then just being a pain?)
