Buena suerte??

So I was walking to the corner market and what did I see? Signs for a new English language school in town! IN TOWN!! We're going to check them out tomorrow to see if they are hiring and what the pay would be. This isn't going to solve our money problems and prevent me from having to return to the states for a bit, but it could very well make it possible for us to return much more quickly.

Tomorrow we are planning a family day. We may go to the beach or perhaps just roam around--the point being we're getting out to do something other than work or take care of household business. Well... we have to go grocery shopping too, but as long as we do something else besides that, I'll be happy.

We are very low on food and I had no meat to cook for Mi Amor's lunch today, so I used what we had and made some egg salad. Unbeknownst to me, he'd never had it before and is now a huge fan. I was also told that I make better rice than his Tia... and that, my friends, is one of the biggest compliments I've ever gotten!! :)

Oh that's so fun! Egg salad is amazing, for sure. Good luck with the English language school. Where will you be headed when you return to the states?

Sounds like a possibility...or have you thought about getting a TESL certificate and starting your own language school?

Kris, it seems I'll be diving time between the parentals and the lake. You'll have to tell me when you come to visit!

LS, I actually am certified in general TESL, Business English and Young Learners. There have been a few requests from extended family to do private lessons, so when I return we'll see where that goes. I'd love to start my own school, but will have to research what kind of permits I need first :) It's a bit of a scary thought, though... having to put together an entire curriculum and whatnot, but I think I'll start working on it when I'm back in the US. I'm sure the public library will be a great (free) tool for that!!

I miss public libraries so much!

Awesome that your MA dug your egg salad!

Mama Sprout, I was psyched I got to introduce him to something new... I was just surprised it was not something he'd had before :)
