I'm registered to study conversational Italian at our community college! I've been wanting to do something other than couponing for the women's shelter, or parenting/wifeing/cooking, etc...maybe I can meet other language lovers and get out of my rut. husband is perfectly happy sitting in his chair reading and dozing off, but he actually started this whole registration process and he is taking beginning French! We will be commuting together. We went today to buy his book and it reminded me of our days in college together. I noticed that I had some spring in my step. There was a guard at the door of the bookstore, he would not let me enter because I had a purse! Even the senior citizens are immediately suspected as possible shoplifters, YIKES! I immediately became a rebellious 19 y.o. again. That was instant plastic surgery on my self concept. Thank you for actually seeing me, Mr. Security. I'm so used to being invisible! One day (while we are still lucid enough to remember our names) we will rent a house in Italy for a month and you'll are invited! Sorry, Janet! They did not offer beginning Portuguese.
