In addition to that, we have been playing an exorbitant amounts of Hand and Foot [card game]. Mi suegra can't get enough of it. She is quite competitive and asks us to play nightly by saying "tienes miedo?" (are you scared?)
I am speaking español everyday by the way. This alone makes me a happy girl. What is my obsession with Spanish you ask? I love the language. Speaking Spanish fluently is the one of the only goals I can think of in my life that hasn't been forgotten or modified. That has to mean something. Your true passions will stick with you throughout your life, right?
I hear new words or phrases all the time and laugh at myself when I mess up verb tenses that I should know after 15 years of studying. (ok, truth be told, Ernesto is really the one who laughs at me, I kick myself...come on dumb a$$, 15 years and you still don't know that?) The fact that I can talk to people now without having to translate into English [in my head first] is a BIG deal for me. Still, I am constantly making mental notes. Riiiiiiiight. That is how you say it! I will have it together one day. I swear. If it's the last thing I ever doooooooooooo.
