El preterito, el preterito, el preterito…y trabajo. 22

I had an incredibly busy day today.  School en la mañana (and I got in a little bit of trouble because I didn´t do mi tarea).  I misunderstood Miriam when she said to make flashcards to study the present tense…piensé que era opcional.  I did study, but not with flashcards. I also put together a calendar layout in caveman español para los payasos.  I wasn´t really in trouble.  She´s really sweet and very patient.  It´s really funny, we start out with conversations before verb drills and exercises and today she started talking about men again.  Hysterical…same problems everywhere!  I also read a Spanish newspaper with her and I understood so much, and I really do understand almost everything she says to me.  Sin embargo, it is possible that she may be speaking to me like I´m a toddler.

Marta Luisa en el mercado. Not the best pic of the bunch, but the only one I could get to upload!!

After school, I ran home for lunch…panqueques para desayuno y pollo con arroz y verduras para almuerzo…then I had to run to El Infinito to pick up a program for the clowns, but it wasn´t downloaded yet, then I ran to work, FINISHED SELECTING PICTURES, HOORAY, then had to run back to El Infinito to pick up the download, then I ran here to post, which I´m going to wrap up in a few minutes so I can run home to eat la cena con mi familia guatemalteca.  Estoy muy cansada. And after dinner, tengo que hacer mi tarea!

The weather was a little better today, only a spot downpour in the middle of the afternoon, but it did rain all night.  I´ll have more time tomorrow to post about some of what´s going on here.

Hope you´re all well…hasta luego

          Hey honey, I just got all your comments. During the day I can´t really check my email all that much because I have five hours of classes in the a.m.

          We´re two hours behind you. Also in order to control what gets posted on here, I look at comments and approve them. Sometimes I can do it on my little Charm, but this week I´ve been running around alot. Also, just want to make sure comments are rated G (or no higher than PG-13). Keepin´ it clean…

          And you´re right, I´m sure I´ll just go back to being plain ol´ Tricia when I get back home!

      Hola mi sobrina linda!

      That is so funny…can you imagine me giving Spanish classes? I wonder if that comes up because of my blog. I would love for you to be with me right now, but probably not here. There´s too much unrest and I would be worried about you all the time. The one thing I wish you could see is GORDO! I´m going to post a picture today just for you, mini meme, little miss giggles. He is so so so so cute. I love him…he looks a little like Houmas (who doesn´t?) and he is so playful and cuddly. Yes, my mama can cook and you would love the food, lotsa rice and beans, yum yum yum. Glad you´re getting some Spanish cooking from Panera mama too. I miss you so so so so so much, especially our phone calls. I am going to have to try and call you through the computer one of these days just to hear your voice. I knew I saved those voicemails for something!

      Lotsa lotsa lotsa love,
      Titi Tricia
