Just can't keep up!

Nothing new happening with me. I am still on my quest doing all I can do to prepare for the big move. I will see Chicco over the holidays so I am looking forward to being with him and his family. My birthday passed and we were not together but he made me a cake and sang me happy birthday via webcam. It was the sweetest thing ever......
Learning Italian is killing me particularly the past tense. I ask myself every day WHY ME? but like everything else in my life, I never give up.
I have been getting a lot of comments asking me to speak about how we met. That blog will come soon, so please stay tuned.

Italian 101

These days I am moving right along with my Italian lessons. I have decided to use a few different teaching methods to help me. First I have enrolled in an Italian class once a week for 3 hours; the course last four months. I use an Italian speaking friend to have conversations with weekly for one hour. Have an Italian podcast on my ipod also an Italian speaking audio book. I have labelled everything in my home in Italian. And lastly, encourage Chicco to have our on-line voice conversations in Italian. But I am the one that usally says "enough already" as too much Italian gives me a The easiest way to continue my learning will happen once I arrive in Italy.

Any other learning suggestions?
