I don’t think I’ve mentioned this to you all, but I have given myself a challenge. Dev and I are hoping to be gone for most of February in the new year to spend some time with his family overseas. I haven’t met any of them yet (not really. I don’t think a Skype conversation really counts as being introduced) and I’m turning into a nervous wreck over the whole thing. So, to calm the nerves a little bit I’m trying to learn his native language - Malayalam.
Yeah. It’s an uphill battle. The only thing I’ve managed to remember so far is how to say “I Love You” and a few words that I hear over and over again when he’s either talking to his parents on the Skype machine or we’re watching terribly awful and hilariously corny movies.
But the challenge that I gave myself was to be in better shape come February. So, back in August I decided to start a (hopeful) weightloss journey. This month that journey slapped me right in the face. I really have no one to blame other than myself, and the copious amounts of Tim Horton’s I ate while I was working at the mall.
