I am so happy to see January on its way out the door. January is a month that provides me with nothing but misery – it’s long, cold, dark and dreary. With a little luck, I’ll only have to endure four more Canadian Januarys. Hooray!
I’ve started with my Fluenz Spanish lessons and so far, things are progressing nicely. I’m only on lesson 4 of the first DVD – only 26 more lessons to go and then I have another 4 DVDs. Good thing I started early.
Keeping with the Spanish theme, I’m noticing that the voices in my head are now speaking to me in Spanish - particularly after completing a lesson and then heading straight to bed. I guess it’s not necessarily a bad thing – unless I can’t understand them.
J and I are still engrossed in our relocation research. I’ll only say this – we’ve started to look at yet another country as a potential candidate. I’m sure we’ll end up looking at plenty more before we even book another flight to take a research tour.
Our new living room furniture finally arrived a few weeks ago. I know it doesn’t make a lot of sense to invest in new furniture when our plan is to simply sell it in a few years, but believe me – I’m so happy with the investment. It’s so nice to settle into comfortable furniture at the end of a loooong day. Pure heaven.
I’m on the hunt for new sandals. Do you know how hard it is to find sandals in January, in Canada? I don’t plan on wearing them around here, but I really need to find some before I head to Panama in March, since my old ones are a hazard to my health – no tread + uneven ground = more than one accident where I’ve ended up on my behind after sliding down a hill (on said behind). I'll keep looking...
