I still don't have a lot of respect for Rosetta Stone. They used a one-size-fits-all mentality, just translating their exercises from the first one they set up! Which is nonsense, every language has different issues and usages. Makes me mad. As a supplement to work on oral aspects, okay, if you just want to be able to play tourist a bit, probably okay, but if you want to master a language, it will probably set you up with bad habits and misconceptions.
I will stop now. Trust me, I can go on a lengthy rant on this subject... LOL! What can I say? Languages are my thing. Free and available are good, but not if they cause you problems later.
On a totally different topic, hubby is on the way home! Yay! Late afternoon, early evening arrival. Which means I am spending the day spiffing things up. I might not be able to make the rounds of all the journals.
I also seem to be hitting that four-week wall I've heard about. Or maybe it was just a bad start to the day. Let's hope. My morale was pretty low this morning, hubby or no. Woke up out of a recurring nightmare (another variation on the theme of losing a small child) and have been having a little difficulty coming out of that funk. My body feels heavy and sluggish too, although I have definitely known worse times in that regard. Maybe a day of "spiffing" for hubby is just what I need to take myself out of myself. I am also listening to some great music, and spent more time than normal with my Bible this morning, reviewing my go-to passages that help me refind my balance.
Here's to hubby cheering me up!

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
