I am in Ixtapa Mexico with the family. My father in law bought everyone a plain tickets from Mexico City to Ixtapa. He did not want to drive all the way here from Mexico City. It is a long drive. We would also have to go through some dangerous areas.
For the past week I have been playing with my beautiful baby, swimming, and biking. Two days ago I rode 18 kilometers. I was exhausted. I consider myself very lucky to be able to do those kinds of things. There are so people I know who are so unhealthy that they cannot ride down the street and back without fainting. It sucks to be them.
Anyway, while on vacation I decided to spend about 15 minutes a day studying language. I know some people are going to say, ¨Naomi, you are on vacation. You should not be studying at all.¨
I have been here for a week already. Everyday I take a dip in the pool. I take my son out for a walk. I look up at the palm trees, bright flowers, and sandy beaches. Do not worry about me not enjoying myself. I am having a blast.
I spend only 15 vacation-minutes a day writing sentences in my notebook. I work mostly on Swedish, and a little on Spanish.
For Christmas, I received a $100 gift card for Amazon.com. With that gift card I am going to buy three books: two books in Advanced Spanish Grammar and one book on Swedish Grammar. On Amazon one can also buy used books. I do not need anything new, so all the books I am going to buy are used. Even in the University I always bought used books. New books are a complete waste of money. With the rest of the money on the gift card, my husband is going to get whatever he wants.
