I know, I know. I haven’t been following the Torbe situation very closely lately. Believe me, it is not for lack of interest.
I have been overloaded lately with life problems. Nothing as severe as what Torbe is going through…but a bit overwhelming nonetheless.
We lost a beloved family pet recently…my sister’s dog. I know Torbe can relate to such heartbreak. 😦
My work has been horrible lately. Even more so than usual.
And then the other day…my car blew up. Literally! The engine pretty much just made a continuous popping sound like there were about a hundred champagne bottles being popped all at once, and then it was no more.
So. I bought a new car, and am working through the logistics of getting rid of my old one. It is not an impossible task, but it does take a lot of time. If I lived in an area that actually had decent public transportation, I would go the Torbe route and give up on car ownership completely. But I don’t have that luxury, so it is back to monthly car payments again for me. Welcome to the American Way. 😉
Fortunately, throughout all of this, my friend Krull from the Eurobabe forum has been sending me news links relating to Torbe as they appear in the Spanish press. The things Krull sent did not make it look like Torbe’s case will be resolved soon, which made me sad.
I am trying to keep a positive attitude, both about Torbe and about my life problems, though. Torbe’s posts with Jacinta are making me laugh, as are his video posts about how he is exercising. I also listened to his latest Torbe Dice vlog, but I need to review it again. I have lost so much ground in my Spanish translation/comprehension skills during the time Torbe has been away from his vlogging, so it was hard for me to understand fully.
I hope things get better for both me and for Torbe soon!
