A Quick Note, With Apologies

Okay, I know a lot of you have been wondering where the heck I’ve been. Not blogging, obviously.

Not only has work been insanely busy, but I also can’t believe that tonight I’ll be writing my Level 4 Spanish exam. Yes, already the end of the 4th course since September when I began. I’m up early in order to study some more before work, as I likely won’t be able to do so before tonight’s class. I’m really happy that I’m only starting Level 5 in early May, as I feel I need to revise the first four levels. But just as I think that it’s not really sinking in, I have little conversations with Esposo and I realize I’ve learned more than I give myself credit for. And I think Esposo is liking that I’m speaking some Spanish, broken and incomplete as it is.

Best of all, though, I’ll be putting what I’ve learned into practice next week, as I’m heading to Mexico City and Puerto Vallarta on Saturday. On the night of the Academy Awards next Sunday, Esposo and I will be in PV celebrating (already!) our first anniversary. Time flies, as they say.

So, to all of you who have been writing but to whom I haven’t responded: my apologies. If you think I was crazy-busy before, you have no idea how crazy-busy I am now. But all is good otherwise.
