It's the little things that make my day

I have struggled with my Polish.  I know that is not a surprise to any one who reads this.  It has been a slower process than I have liked, but yesterday when Jacob Hash and I were meeting at an Irish restaurant, I ordered fruit juice for us and later the waitress came back and said (something like), "Your Polish is very good. I did not know you would be able to speak Polish when you came in. (she heard us speaking English when we walked in) You have a very good accent."  It was a great thing for me to hear this. 

Today, I had refrigerator problems, again and had to have a repairman come out.  Can we say STRESS??  Not only do repair men tend to speak too fast for anyone, they also use industry vocabulary, which I know none!  Well, I did it!  I did not understand all the words, but he was patient and explained the problem to me more slowly the second time and I understood!  Tomorrow I get to start lessons again and I am looking forward to another jump in my language!
