The conversation continues

I've pretty much talked non-stop since our friends arrived on Tuesday. I do let them say something now and then. It has been wonderful to be with people who know us and love us anyway :-) 

And who speak English.

Yes, I'm doing better with the Spanish. But I am nowhere near being fluent and able to say anything I want without a great deal of concentration and angst over conjugations, feminine or masculine endings, sentence structure and just plain old vocabulary.

So to be able to just blabber on and on and on in my first language is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

I worked really hard getting ready for their visit and since they arrived I've done almost no housework. A couple loads of laundry, a little sweeping...not much else.

Except talk.

And talk and talk and talk.

So much verbal doesn't leave a lot of time for the written. I'll be back to read blogs and write posts soon.

When the words run out or they fly home.
Whichever comes first.
Who wants to bet I'll still be jabbering on the way to the airport?

I don't blame you. I would explode if I couldn't use my native English in everyday language! So jabber away, girlfriend! : )

Even our granddaughter has picked up some words in Spanish. The other day she said someone had taken a drink of Coke from the "pico". We had to laugh, despite the import of the expression.
