Buone Feste!

Hope everyone had a good Christmas. There was no snow in Toronto and the weather was quite warm. Today is boxing so there was a lot of crazy people out trying to grab a deal. I refused to be one of those people. I hate crowds, traffic and clutter and that is what boxing day is all about.

Chicco has arrived in NYC and he is having a wonderful time. He has been doing much of the tourist stuff with his family & is enjoying every moment of it. When I arrive him and I will spend a lot of time together.

Enjoy the rest of the holidays, see you in the '07'

Holiday in NYC

Well, I only have 9 more sleeps until I land in NYC. I have been there MANY times so I am not excited in that sense. My excitement is because with just 9 more sleeps I will see Chicco. I got him the best xmas gift. It took some work but I was able to put it all together. If I could tell you I would but he on occasion reads my blog. I kinda hoping for some snow there as there is none as yet in Toronto. Yes, believe it or not Toronto has not had any snow as yet. So I am hoping it snows there as it will be nice for Chicco to see snow in the North. I also wonder what the Christmas is like without snow or cold weather? How different will it be when I am living abroad during the holidays? do we say HOME SICK...lol


My Girlie' Blog

So I decided to redesign my blog. I made it a little girlie' with some pinks, purples & reds. It's kinda bright but lovin' it for now. Enjoy!

Italian 101 FINISHED

Well, I survived my first Italian class. Can't say I am not fluent but I can get by if need be. I will continue my Italian in the coming year as the more practice I have the better ( I hope). The holidays are just around the corner. Will be in NYC for the holidays with Enrico and his family. He is going to NYC to visit some relatives so we decided to spend the time together as well.
I figured the more I communicate w/ his non-English speaking relatives the better it will be for me. His mother is always asking "how is her Italian going". The pressure is on as I am expected to speak Italian during the holidays.

Well lastnight I went to see Chicago the musical. Which by the way was an amazing show. Kevin Richardson from of the Backstreet boys plays Billy Flynn, he did a good job along with the rest of the cast.
I love musicals and have seen many over the last few years. I wonder if there will be opportunities for me to see musicals in Italy. I guess I can always go to London to catch a musical if I really need to. I guess the closest to a musical in Italy would be the Opera, which I am dying to attend one day. Old experiences bring new ones.
