What's the best way to lose weight quickly before having to fit into your fancy formatura dresses?
A couple of days before, try unknowingly picking up a parasite or stomach virus that makes you throw up everything you eat!
It started kind of suddenly during one of my classes. I had to send the students home. How embarrassing!
I'm pretty much better now. I'm still pretty nauseous, but I'm keeping my dinner down so far.
At least the dresses will look better...! ...?
In other news, the in-laws are in town and actually liked the apartment and the restaurant that I took them to. (Yay! My housewifery skills have been approved. I was nervous.) Apparently the apartment (and its state of cleanliness) are a far cry from the last time they came to visit, which was years ago, when Alexandre was in a tiny apartment and living a lone bachelor's (messy) life.
Tomorrow's the first dress-up night! So it's the first night of the formatura, AND, it's Alexandre's birthday! I bought him a new fancy briefcase for his residency, and also wrote him a poem in Portuguese (with Bruna's help). I'm pretty proud of myself.
Dress-up pics to come!
