the first day at home

We ate cake on the first day. Still don’t really know why. I was afraid to ask. Wanted to break down crying the whole time. Instead I ate the cake. It was delish.

Then talked to the grandpa about his running which made me feel better. Wish there was a race in the city to run with him but the marathon here isn’t til august. Watched mission impossible in Spanish.     

Finally l got to read in English which kind of reinforced the notion that I am not incompetent which raised my confidence. Image

Went to help “mama” in the kitchen. She was quite happy. I dried dishes and she taught me how to make tortillas. I was terrible but we laughed together and I felt so much better. I even got to eat dinner alone in heavenly silence! And it was chicken soup! And then their cute little dog chaco and I played. Staying strong.
