In other news, along with immersion at my job, I've acquired the book "Learning Hebrew for Dummies" and am working on counting to ten (also learning Hebrew entirely). I have a babysitting gig with a family from Israel and it's so strange when they are talking to me and trying to tell me something and I have no idea what they are saying. One of them at bedtime was like, "alkdjalkdjf ROSH aldkaj;dkj". I know rosh= head, so i was like what's wrong with your head? he says, i...know....what...wrong? my... mother... no give me.... the ball? before...sleep? i love the israelis. I read the learning hebrew book to one of them and she laughs because i am saying strange phrases like, "could you recommend a nice restaurant for me?" obviously these phrases are NOT all that practical.
i fell off of the dieting wagon. it's winter's fault! it's just so cold and lonely and i'd rather watch tv and do my crocheting projects. however, i DID just complete one hour of cardio after not having exercised in probably a month. it's sad how i did not make my goal, but hopefully it will warm and the streets will flood with melting snow and the air will smell fresh and i will get some happiness inside me that makes me move. and in regards to crocheting, i've become a master. i finished the cutest baby sweater and gave it to my favorite baby. the parents loved it and so did all their rich friends. i may be getting commissioned because apparently my pieces are "original" and not something you can find a le botique. too bad it takes me 2 months to finish something. i've started a cute, simple scarf for myself and after that i'm making kelly a dress. i will post pictures later to get compliments on.
thank you for reading.
