I've had a lot of fun the past couple weeks but all the partying and staying up way past my bedtime has caught up with me.
This morning I decided I couldn't get up until I'd read another chapter in "El Caballero de la Armadura Oxidada". This is my homework over the holidays and --horror of horrors -- I sorta forgot about it ☹ I put it into a drawer while cleaning as we prepared for our Christmas dinner and poof! the memory of needing to read it went right out of my head. Until I was looking for something and came across it the other day.
So, NOT going to have it done before Spanish lessons resume next week. *sigh* I used to be so organized and together. It's like middle-agedness just sucks all your intelligence out along with the hot flashes and insomnia.
But aside from getting a late start, the book is muy divertido (very entertaining)! It's about a knight in shining armor who thinks he's good, generous and loving but whose wife finally gives him an ultimatum: Either get out of that armor once in a while, or she and the son are outta there.
In chapter one he attempts to get the armor off but not even the strongest man in the kingdom can help him. So in chapter 2 he's off to the forests to find Merlin, the magician.
Even though this is a children's book, and I'm doing surprisingly well with occasional help on words from the hubby, it is time-consuming to read in Spanish. It took 1-1/2 hours this morning to read chapter 2. I think as I get more of the vocabulary down (many words and phrases repeated, obviously) it will go faster.
Aside from that I'm just cleaning house and doing laundry today. Kinda nice to be back in the old routine again ☺ Is everyone else just recovering, too? Or do you have special plans for this weekend? Inquiring minds want to know!
