🎥 G’s Week in Milan
What were you grateful for this week? That I didn't get sick!
What was the most challenging part of this week? Both the boys have gotten sick, which has thrown off their routine and made it more difficult to play with them.
Tell us about a "wow" moment you had this week. On Saturday night when everyone was asleep, I did all the dishes that were left around the kitchen and started the dishwasher. When they woke up the kitchen was already clean.
Tell us about your week! This week felt so much longer than a week. I went to class every morning, I am slowly learning. After class I would walk home its about a 30 minute walk and it's so beautiful! Once I get home I tidy up my room and usually read a little. Lorena prepares lunch everyday, it's always so yummy. After lunch [my host family’s younger son] takes a nap and I practice my Italian on Duolingo. When he wakes up [my host family’s older son] gets home from school. We play in the toy room for a couple hours then it’s time for dinner. All the food is so healthy and good, I'm loving it. Since the boys got sick this weekend it really changed the routine of things. They started sleeping all day and were very cranky. I had time to change the settings on my computer to all Italian websites. I also had time get everything settled in my room. This weekend I went out on Saturday night to a bar in hopes to make friends... I'm way too shy to go out of my way to talk to strangers. I am not being too hard on myself though because it is the first week. On Sunday I went for a run to the Milan Cathedral, Arco della Pace and Parco Sempione. They are all so cool! it was raining and foggy on my run — it looked like it was out of a movie.
