It is now so long ago, that I hardly recognize the typepad environment anymore... I am doing fine. Still happily living in Germany with my husband and 2 boys who are 2 and 5 at this moment. I am still working at the same place where I started 1,5 years ago and really enjoy it. Although it sometimes tough to combine work and family, it is manageable, especially because of our 'leih opa & oma'. Thanks to them everything runs pretty smooth!
