I had an interesting day

[My daughter says "interesting" is my code word for "bad" as in when I would tell her an outfit was "interesting" when I really meant that I hated it. But in this case it is what it is -- interesting is simply interesting.]

There was the little matter of waking up at 3:30 a.m. and not being able to go back to sleep but I'll compensate by going to bed early tonight. In fact, right after I finish posting this I'm posting myself to bed.

Spanish wasn't as hard as it could have been -- it helps that I'm sharing my class for a couple weeks with Tim who came from Wisconsin specifically to work on his Spanish. That means it's not all-me-all-the-time in class. Which I appreciated a great deal today.

Another thing that worked in my favor is that it wasn't a typical Wednesday. Graciela came over this morning after Spanish but we didn't get together with her and Nestor this evening because 1) I had a dentist appointment, and 2) Nestor is backed up on a work project. Instead they stayed for lunch and a short visit. So while I did get a good share of Spanish today, it wasn't as much as a "normal" Wednesday. Which means my brain didn't get quite the workout.

Going to the dentist entails some Spanish, but not much speaking on my part :-) And the patient before me canceled so I was able to go in early, get finished sooner, and after a nice soft dinner of leftover noodles I am in my jammies and heading to bed before 9 p.m. Where my tired, but not overworked, brain will hopefully get sufficient rest before tomorrow...

...when we have Spanish, art class, an appointment to get our hair cut, and who knows what unexpected language opportunity?

'interesting'--I used that to describe one of M's pottery pieces and he interpreted it as a diplomatic negative!
dentist-I'm going tomorrow
Tim--who is he?
Tina just called about Dad on way to Dr. Everybody, pray!
