A Relaxing Weekend

My life has not been that interesting the past couple of days so sorry to bore you with this blog - if I do.  Let's see... Thursday I did not go out or do anything really, just worked on some homework and watched a movie.  It was a very relaxing evening.  I tried to go to bed early, but for some reason it never really seems to happen.  It is all good though.  Anyways on Friday I worked on some homework and then I went to school to the library and worked on a library.  After doing some homework there was a little get together for the retreat I went on a couple weeks ago.  There were not that many of us there because there was an Oceanography trip to the eastern coast of Spain and there was a lot of people on the retreat that went on the trip.  After the retreat get together I went to sol with two friends, Kara and Zack. We went to get postcards and to enjoy the beautiful weather.  We got postcards and then went into the oldest market in Spain and got ice cream - well actually it was frozen yogurt.  I had mango and kiwi on mine - it was wonderful :)  After hanging out at sol I came home and Skyped my friend and roommate from last year Steph.  It was good to talk to hear about her life at Madison and to just catch up.  After skyping Steph I went to dinner with Elizabeth and her family (her mom, aunt and little sister).  It was great to have another nice meal and to meet Elizabeth's whole family.  We went to the same restruant that we went to with her dad, sister, and brother when they all came.  I didn't get home until about 11 on Friday night.  I worked on my history paper some more and then went to bed.  Saturday was the most relaxing day I have had since coming to Spain.  I didn't have to wake up at a certain time or be anywhere at a certain time - well I suppose to be but the weather wasn't doing what it was suppose to - be sunny.  Therefore I wasn't going to go and meet Elizabeth at a park and lay out.  I decided to take a Toria day as I like to call it.  I just worked on some homework and chilled and Skyped some people.  The only thing I did throughout the day was Elizabeth came over at night and watched a movie and just talked.  It was great to actually have a chill night.  Today Elizabeth and I went to the Rastro so I could get a couple of gifts for people - again I didn't really do anything exciting today.  I worked on some homework and just relaxed.  Oh but we did have a family party today at our house.  We had lunch with everyone, but it wasn't anything too exciting that is for sure.  As you can tell from this blog I have not done anything exciting basically all weekend long - it was wonderful! I needed a chill weekend.  I didn't get as much homework as I would have liked to get done, but I got enough done that I won't be stressed that much this week!!  Oh something exciting that did happen this weekend was my big brother, Steven, bough his first car.  Now, I don't know anything about car so don't be asking me for any details about it... Sorry!! And something else I did this weekend was update my map that my parents got me so I can track all the places I have been - I learned where Switzerland is! For some reason I thought it was close to Sweden and Ireland or something of that nature - once again my geography skills have failed me.  Oh well it happens. :)  Everyone has flaws.

That is all for tonight.

Paz y Amor. God Bless.
