Vacations, doctors and Thanksgiving

This week our school system is off so we follow it for the girls to have the same vacation as their friends. Needless to say they are thrilled, and so is mommy who was starting to burn out and needed a little break.

Today Miguel has his doctors appt to verify his possible surgery which I expect will be the end result. WE will try to schedule for January since it's not emergent and then we can apply the cost to next years deductible.

Thanksgiving will be intersting this year as Pat and I will be on our last day of Body for Life, then we leave on Friday for Dallas for a weekend away with the kids. They are going to see the Mavericks play and Miguel and I will be seeing friends. Fun!!!

I haven't done a quote in a few days:

here's a few quotes:

Happy We-Stole-Your-Land-and-Killed-Your-People Day!
~Thanksgiving toast, from the movie Sweet November

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Happy Birthday

To my sister Carolina, she is 36 today :)

Also to my baby Gabi who is not yet truly 10 but tomorrow is her party. Her birthday gifts all arrived and we will have at least 11 girls at the party tomorrow. I'm so excited for her :)

On a side note my dog Sam has been whinning incessantly, everytime Miguel has food he whines and whines to get his food, he is driving me insane...

you wouldn't believe what I'm doing today

We are putting up Christmas decorations and tree... sigh... Larisa is insistent that this must be done ASAP (does she think Santa will come sooner?)

Anyhow we're in process....

hello :)

Had a busy weekend, very busy!

This week promises to be busy too, as we have girl scouts, dance, birthday party, brownies sleepover and that is just above and beyond schoolwork, housework, laundry and breathing, :P

I bought a Vanity Fair last week for light reading (LOL) and found a new charity I think I will be donating to besides our sponsored people in Guatemala. It's called It provides medicine to AIDS ravaged areas of Africa. Africa is a country so dear to my heart, I've never been there but my heart is crushed with pain when I hear of the horrible conditions, abuses and blatant violence these people live with every day. That of course is not even considering illness, starvation and poverty above and beyond anything we could imagine. So I'm trying to do research on this charity and figure out if my money will be well spent.

I'm going to go and continue laundry, clearning, dishes and such, I also have to take Patty to the vet, she is having a skin tumor removed, her teeth cleaned, ear tattooed and nail clipped. She's going to come a real happy camper tomorrow, LOL, I bet you she will puke on purpose on the carpet to show me who's boss....

Here's a quote from the website to that charity, so true...

"AIDS is an absolutely tragic disease. The argument about AIDS' being some kind of divine retribution is crap." - Calvin Klein

my cell phone

broke :P I'm not having a lot of technological luck lately. Thankfully one is on it's way from Cingular as we speak and should be here today. Now the most critical part is whehter my ring tone I just downloaded which is "The best day ever" from SpongeBob will be on my sim card so I don't have to download it again.

This is really cool

The Extra Degree Go check it out.

Today I'm going to get my dry sockets packed and hopefully be on my way to no pain.

What am I reading:

Helen of Troy by Margaret George.

It's pretty good, I wouldn't call it masterful but it's interesting with all the Greek Gods and Godesses and twists and turns.
