Okay…so…I hate when I get fixed on something that gets on my nerves and I cannot get off of it. The thing that I am on right now…"Diane”…Jeez!

She was in my tutoring session today and wanted to argue my profesora down about what a word meant. It was too much. I found myself wishing I could just wash my coffee cup with that brillo pad she is passing off as hair.

Anyway I am progressing nicely with the Spanish. I went to the bank today without incident and I ordered food and got what I ordered. That was pretty exciting. Perhaps next I will work on ordering something that isn't nasty and that I don’t want to immediately throw in the street and stomp. (If anyone says "Hey, let’s go to Plaza del Sol and get Chicken sandwiches” I will probably punch them in the face.)

So it has not rained in a couple of days so I thought that I would be safe leaving my raincoat at home and wearing some cute flip flops.

Bad idea. I walked home with soggy feet and wet jeans. It was pretty awful. My hair looked an awful mess too, but I am coping.

Catalina and I got home close to the same time. She was giddy because her legs were wet. It was so hilarious.  Soon after we got home the sky opened up. It was actually quite amazing to watch. We stood under the covered porch and she did a little rain dance. LOVED IT! LOVED HER!

Catalina asked me if I wanted her to wash my clothes today. (No one has asked me that since I was nine.) Ummm…so okay. I have enough clean clothes (and especially underwear) to last until I leave. My only dilemma is the absolute clean clothes freak in me really wanted to have the clothes washed today. I declined though. I am not sure that if the clothes were wet that they would ever dry. I doubt I have used a dry towel the whole time I have been here. My skin loves the humidity but my hair is fighting back.

Speaking of laundry, I talked to my husband and he is working on the laundry. He admitted that he was nervous and I appreciated that. I miss taking care of him. He’s so good to me as well. Anyway, he told me that washing went fine but he could not get the dryer to work. My first statement was that he needed to make sure that the door was closed. He said that he discovered that, but only after checking the plug and the circuits and turning the knobs a million times. Nice…

I hope that “checking the circuits and the plug and turning the knobs” are not code words for “the Mexican maid is living here while you are gone and I love her.”
