Mon Dieu!

September 11, 2009

I’ll be honest with you – I’ve let things slide a bit. I haven’t been to the pool since my visit to Winnipeg (pool’s closed anyway until the end of the month) and I’m feeling out of shape. I imagined I’d be peeling myself out of bed in the mornings to get myself up and out of the house at the same time I’d leave for the pool. I want to keep my body in the rhythm of waking up and getting out of the house so that when the pool reopens I’m not back at square one. Somehow I’ve allowed myself to fall back into my usual pattern. I long for the day when it feels unusual not to go.

I need to get into  the same flow where learning French is concerned. Speaking French has been at the top of my never ending list for years. Years! And, I’m still no further ahead. I thought that by the end of this summer (and let’s face it,  summer’s pretty much over) I’d be parlezing francais all over the place. Mais non… Next summer I have a plan to head back to France for the third time. But for this trip I hope and pray I’m able to understand and speak french well enough to get by. I want to feel comfortable enough to communicate in the language of my dreams. Is that too much to ask? I’ve said it once (or twice, probably more) I’ll say it again – just what the merde am I waiting for?

Oh, and I accidently caught a glimspe of myself in the mirror this morning. Mon Dieu. I’ve really let things slide. It’s time to get serious about a few things. I’ve got a lot of work to do. What else is new?
