健脚会
2013-01-20 23:23

Around this time of year, my son's school has a unique event.
All the students are supposed to walk 42 kilometers in 6 to 7 hours. It's usually a round trip race from the school. I thought that my son was embarrassed that I was the only mother who walked with him and his schoolmates every year. On the contrary, he looked worried that I wouldn't be able to get over the pain and recover from the backache by next Friday. I was moved when my son said that it was a shame that I wouldn't be able to take part. It will be the last opportunity for me to participate, as my son will be in third grade in his high school from April and he and his classmates won't join. The school will let them study or prepare for University entrance examinations, I guess they think that spending an entire day on the race is a burden for test takers. A lot of parents who are not interested in walking the long distance are allowed to cheer their children on near the course which is across many towns. As for myself, walking is not hard even if it is 42 kilometers, rather I am tougher than those students who don't exercises a lot on daily basis. Unfortunately last month I sprained my ankle, and now I have been suffering from a strange pain which I still haven't been able to diagnose. Now that my son wants me to walk as I did for the past 4 years, I really feel disappointed.
息子の学校で毎年42㎞歩く健脚会が毎年2月にあります。父兄も参加できるので、私は過去4年、息子や息子のクラスメートと歩きました。6~7時間という時間制限があるので、父兄ではほんの少数の人しかその長距離コースを最後まで歩くことはありませんし、去年は私ひとりでした。でも今年は1月に足を捻挫し、またこのところ体調もよくないので、残念ながら全コースは歩けないかもしれないと思っています。(2013.02.10)
I'm going to take part in the walking race of my son's school tomorrow. This time, I won't be able to walk the the whole course, but I'd like to at least go to the destination.
Demain, je vais participer à la marche de 42 km qui se tiendra à l'école de mon fils.

それぞれの楽しみ

Early in the morning, a distant relative of my husband came to see me, and she's still here.I have to try to speak loudly with her as she is hard of hearing. I let her talk and while she chats I type. I cannot say that I am really busy today since she often says she likes to come to see me. I served lunch and decided to talk to her until to her heart's content.
いつも家へくる親戚の人と話をしていたら、今日も自分の時間がほとんどなくなってしまいました。ここに来て私と会うのがとても楽しみだと言う彼女に、一度も忙しいと言ったことはありません。ただ残念なことに共通の趣味がないので、だらだらと時間を過ごしてしまうのでちょっともったいない気もしています。1月31日

入試の過去問

Yesterday I spent 2 and a half hours copying my son's past exam paper (過去問) which he asked me to do in a few days. I did it at once even though my son son had told me that it had too many pages to finish in a day. As a result, I was not able to play the piano. I was glad to know that my son was willing to study to using the past exam paper.(2013.01.23)

朝から雨

It has been drizzling since this morning, but rain makes me feel relaxed and relieved somehow. In the morning, there was one visitor and after she left, I went to the supermarket, and did some housework.Now I must get back to my real work which is mainly keeping the account books for my family business.(2013.02.04)

あっという間一日

Today, I was so busy with routine chores that I hardly found time to sit down. Also I was a bit depressed from the morning. I didn't want to see anyone who I had to talk to with a smile.They would have had a bad impression of me. So, I canceled all of my English and French lessons at my house.
気分重かった今朝、敢えて明るい顔をするのも大変だし、自分の時間もほしかったので、フランス語と英語のレッスンをキャンセルしました。それでも銀行やスーパーなどへ行き、ためてあった雑用、最低限の家事を済ませたらもう夕方、結局何もまとまったことはできず一日終わってしまいました。(2013.01.29)
