Let's get it started! This week was a fantabulous week. I have now been in Korea for 8 months. I can hardly believe it. I only have 4 months left. I plan on living it up as much as I can. Carpe diem!
On Sunday I went to a Clothing Exchange. Finding clothes that fit in Korea is sometimes hard. So a couple of women started this clothing exchange twice a year, and everyone brings clothes to exchange. Then you walk around the room and just pick what you want to keep. And all the leftovers go to charity. I found a couple of Old Navy tops that fit and a couple of books. What a cool thing to do! Wish we could do this at home.
If you knew me in person, you would know that I LOVE hamburgers and French fries. They are my favorite food. I love them. Seriously.
In Daejeon, there is an awesome restaurant called House Grill. The guy who owns it actually lived in California for several years, and his burgers and fries are out of this world. I will absolutely miss this place when I move back to Texas.
On Monday, I took my new co-teacher, Jin Ju, to House Grill. She had never been there before. She LOVED it. I always get the Texas burger (can't imagine why....hehe), but I got the Hangover Burger this time...even though I don't really drink and didn't have a hangover. It's two patties, cheese, bacon, and their special sauce. SO good. Wow. Oh, wow. I will be going back there this week. Nah...I'm not obsessed or anything.
I have several students who are blind and are learning their ABCs. So I decided to make "touch" ABC cards for them. I took simple ABC cards, laminated them, and then used a hot glue gun to outline each letter. They worked out great!
We also used our ABC rainbow mats to match up the letters. I love to use our favorite ABC song and pause it after each letter, allowing the students to find the letter and match it to the one on their mat. The girls love that song so much that one day I caught one of them singing it in the bathroom. LOL!
Last but not least, I have some exciting news. Last week, I shared that I had to have a biopsy. I was nervous for the results but also for the fact of just being in a foreign country and having the possibility that something might be wrong. Scary place to be. I just heard from the doctor yesterday, and my mass in my breast was benign! Praise God! She tells me that I have fibrocystic breast disease, which is quite common but not dangerous.
I'm also excited that my jeans are so big that I can fit my whole arm in them. Weird but exciting! I think it's time to retire those jeans. Don't you think?
How was your week? I puffy heart comments and would love to know who all is reading my little blog!
