I Have Got Some Big News

28 Oct

I barely believe this myself but next week I am beginning a new job at a public school in Madrid (and also moving into an apartment in the city)!

Leaving the house here in Pozuelo (and the three little beans) will be very, very difficult but I am thrilled (actually I am two parts thrilled and one part terrified) to begin a new adventure.

One Million Things

27 Oct

I feel like I have about one million things to accomplish in the next few days.  But instead of panicking (what I really should be doing right now) I have been eating too many Tootsie Pops and thinking about Halloween costumes.  And spending time with the three beans and Nicolás!

A Feel Better Friday

21 Oct

I woke up today with a sore throat and have spent the morning practicing every sore throat remedy I have ever heard of: peppermint tea with honey, Vitamin C tablets, and a gargle of lemon water with salt.  I just so do not want to feel sick!

In hopes of improving my mood (and inspired by Emily) I also compiled a little list of things that have made me happy this week.

1.  Autumn, finally arriving in Madrid

2.  And a pumpkin garland to encourage my Halloween excitement!

3.  Fresh mangos from Málaga

4.  Small traditions, like watching Jersey Shore with Kelsey and eating chocolate sandwich cookies

5.  Reminiscing about childhood books, Anne of Green Gables was one of my favorites (Anne gets up to all kinds of shenanigans, she dyes her hair green)!

Baby, It’s Brisk Outside!

19 Oct

The weather has turned chilly this week and Almu and Inés came to the dinner table very bundle up last night!  I am not complaining about the weather though, not one little bit–it’s a refreshing change to pull on long pants and scarves!
