Worst Week Ever

Not a good way to start the weekend.

So in addition to the no internet/TV/phone thing, I now have no car. It decided to overheat and leave me stranded on the highway Friday afternoon after I left work. And the weather gods wanted to make things worse, so they made it snow and rain all day. Luckily it only took David & the tow truck an hour to find me, so I wasn’t completely frozen by the time they arrived. Since it’s Easter weekend, the garagiste won’t even look at my car until Tuesday. So looks like I’ll be taking the train to work next week.

See? Only bad things happen during the month of March.

    What lousy luck! I hope there’s no serious problem with the car and you’re back on the road in no time. At any rate, work is nearly over!

    Oh no! That is a stinky weekend! Don’t worry, nice weather will be here soon and I am sure they will fix your car up nice for hopefully not a lot of money.Sorry about all the problems… that just means some great times are on their way.

    That sucks. I really hope they can fix your car soon. At least March is almost over, just six days left. Maybe April will bring better weather? Here’s hoping.

Why is Jennie no longer in France?

I created this blog in September 2006 when I moved to France from Michigan to teach English. Many of the earlier posts are about my personal life in France, dealing with culture shock, traveling in Europe and becoming fluent in French. In January 2010, I started focusing more on teaching and learning languages in general. In July 2011, I relocated to Australia to start my PhD in Applied Linguistics. Although I am no longer living in France, my research is on foreign language pedagogy and I teach French at the university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling (though now my trips are usually in Australia) and being an American abroad.
