あわてんぼうの大晦日
2012-12-31 20:21

Yesterday I left a bag of groceries in the supermarket as I was in a hurry and didn't check to see if I had grabbed all the bags.
Until this morning I did not notice it, however, when I was going to drink a cup of coffee, I finally realized how scatterbrained I was.

When I came back home, my son asked me if I had kept his new year post cards from last year from his friends. He needed them to know his friends' addresses, as he does not have an address book. Sometimes my bad habit of being a packrat is helpful. I thought about getting rid of my old text books and some letters from my relatives before the new year season, but I again hesitated to do so.

買い物した物をスーパーに忘れてきてしまい、自分のそそっかしさにがっかり、もっと慎重な性格になりたいものです。また、今年こそ身の回りの物を処分してすっきりしようと思っていたのに、今年もできずじまいでした。でも、これはまだいるかなと思って大事にしまっておくと物でいっぱいになってしまうけれど、その代わりある日突然必要になり、取っておいてよかったと思うことも時々あります。

年末の来客
2012-12-27 08:40

Yesterday I had a lot of traveling salesperson from a clothes shop, bank, insurance company.
They looked to try hard not to lose their customers this season.
I told them that I had so much to do today, there was no time to dawdle, and I didn't want to buy anything now, but they were so persistent.
忙しい時に限って来客が多いものです。呉服屋さんから、生命保険、銀行の外交員まで、この時期は避けてほしいのに、ドアベルを鳴らしました。気がつくと、もう夕方、やるべき事が終わらないうちに一日終わってしまいました。

Besides my former piano teacher came back for 2 weeks. Yesterday afternoon, as soon as she got back home, she asked me to translate Japanese sentences into English.
I was going to finish 200 new years post cards to my old friends, but I couldn't, because after the translation, I lost my motivation to do anything else.

クリスマスギフト

クリスマス
I've written two letters to France. It was not easy to write in French, but I wanted to say thank you to 2 women who sent me gifts from France.
Both of them are my French teachers' mothers. One of them had sent me a box of chocolates and toiletries, the other had given me an art book of Degas.
Nowadays, we prefer e-mail, but it was nice to receive handwritten letters from people who live overseas.
私のフランス語の先生、またその母国のお母さん達から、チョコレート、クッキー、色々な香りの石鹸、それからドガの画集をいただきました。
Happy holidays!

個人懇談会
2012-12-18 15:38

The second exam in this term finished last week at my son's school, he was at the top again in science class.

担任の先生と息子と3人で話し合う懇談会へ行ってきました。
先生は物理の担当で、息子にも物理を大学で勉強するように勧めた方です。
今日もいつも通り、何も言うことはない、成績もいいし本人の学校での態度も良いと先生が言われ、10分ピッタリで懇談会は終わりました。
来年の今頃には志望校が決まります。息子が行ける所へ行けばよいと思っています。

My son and I went to his school to talk to his homeroom teacher. The parent-teacher conference was only 10 minutes.
His teacher said that my son always gets good grades and he is a straight-A student. He didn't have much to tell us.

乱射

It was shocking to hear about the terrifying news in the USA. That kind of rampage should not have happened again.
I cannot imagine how sad the families were who lost their children, such a heart-wrenching incident! 2012:12:14
