This mama is VERY EXCITED! Our daughter now has plane tickets to visit us in December. Woot! She had to wait until the final exam schedule was published and request permission from the provost to take a couple exams early so she could leave December 16th. It was the difference of at least $400 (partly because of the holidays but mostly because that is the start of summer here and the "high season" when airfare, hotels and everything else goes up, UP, UP).
[I'm doing the happy dance!]
In just over four months I'm gonna see my baby girl :-) Who will be a brand new college graduate!
I get to keep her here for almost two months. [Happy dance continuing]
Plus, it's Friday. Fridays are good. Fridays my brain can rest.
Today is so nice we had Spanish on the patio. With the birds chirping and the wind whipping up a little breeze and our vegetable garden looking all sprightly as I tried to wrap my mind (and my mouth) around Spanish prepositions and the subjunctive.
After class I put a load of freshly laundered clothes on the line, made myself a roast beef sandwich, skyped with the daughter and decided I had to share my good news with you [while doing the happy dance] before my brain shuts down completely as it is wont to do on Friday afternoons.
Tomorrow I'll be back with the recipe for Cuban pork roast and Cuban sandwiches. Because life is good and I want to share some of the goodness with you.
