RemDawg rocks!

This is why i love the Red Sox! Not only are they the best team around they also have the best announcers. Have you seen your teams announcers dance and rock for you? Yep that's what I thought, LOL

This is hilarious - listen to the announcer's comments

Awwwww... a video of my Miguel

He was around 6 months :(


I've had a busy day today already. The girls finally are done with shots for school. THey do have to go back in 6 months for a Hep A booster and then that's all done.

I have laundry, cleaning, schoolwork. i'm going to work out in 20 minutes and my legs are KILLING me. I don't know what I did to them but they are sore as he...

Larisa has her violin recital tomorrow and she is soooo excited!! She has dress rehearsal today and she is pumped.

Wish her luck!

Today is the day

Today is my job interview at the kids school. I have not been nervous until now, blech. I'm also applying for a position in the preschool Miguel will attend, they need an aide for the spanish immersion class and I think I like that option better since it would be less hours.

We'll see how they go :)

Weekend almost here :)

Wow, fun! THe kids are still on cloud 9 over school. Today Miguel and I go to visit another preschool called Hobson. I've been told this is "the Preschool" to go to in Fort Smith. I do have other reasons to like it since the girls dance teacher Penny is an aide there and will be moving to the 3 year old class next year and she told me that next year they will start a spanish immersion program for 3 year olds *and* the lady doing it is from Guatemala!!! Woow, that sounds fantastic!

I have to replace the ballast in the light fixture of the laundry room, the light dosn't work and it's driving me crazy, aside from the fact that a potential buyer woudnt like it either.

My mom will be here in 2 weeks and next day we haul it for Arizona :D

Boston won last night again


The Red Sox won again!! Woo Hooo! It was such a good game to watch, they hit 4 homeruns in like 3 innings, I actually started feeling sorry for the Blue Jays pitcher, but not for a very long time, since I really prefer to watch the Sox win :D


The girls went to spend the day at their school for next year and had a terrific time. They loved the teachers, the kids, the school and even the lunch, LOL.

Miguel and I visited a preschool and tomorrow we visit a second one.

Things are moving in the right direction, now if someone would just come this weekend and buy the house, I'd be more satisfied. I can tell you the drive at 7 am was great but getting up at 5:10 to get everyone ready and set was not as fun, LOL

it's just another manic monday....

remember that song? Come on 80's children think....

Tomorrow the kids go to spend one day at the school and I'm going to call the preschools so I can visit with Miguel. The girls have to be in school at 7:45, which means we have to leave at 7:00 am at the lastest. That means I have to get up by 6 a at the latest and only if the kids have everything ready to go 'cause they will ge tup at 6 am, eat, dress, etc and jump in the car for school. Wow!

2 weeks to Arizona and looking forward to it, can't wait to get some rays :)

Pat's car is supposed to arrive this week though we haven't heard if it left Kentucky yet. He bought himself a Porsche Boxter last week. Sweet ride :) It's convertible, ah... can't wait to drive it since it's a 6 speed also. Soooo cool! I'll post pictures when it gets here, we are soo looking forward to having it.

And if you couldn't remember the name of the group it was The Bangles

Finally Friday....

The kids are thrilled and I'm excited too. Last night we went out to run errands and I picked up 2 rings that were being sized. When we hit the mall my head suddenly started hurting, like lightning, by the time we got home, even with Tylenol and a big cup of coffee I was in migraine stage. Oh it was hurting. I even let Miguel sleep in my bed so I wouldn't have to put him to sleep in his bedroom. Thankfully I woke up headacheless though I have like a "shadow" headache. Ever get one of those? It's like the area of the previous headache is still sore from it. I'm going to take more Tylenol and hopefully it will not return.

Tonight we have our dancing class and dinner which I think we will eat italian tonight.

I have this weird feeling that I have to do something today in the daytime and I've forgotten. Miguel's awake bye

Larisa wants to share

Here is a link to the Fort Smith Symphony

Fort Smith Symphony

The Director John Jeter is married to her violin teacher Karen Jeter who is First Violin, Associate Concermaster. If you look around the website you should see under concerts several pictures. She is the lady jumping with her violin and the little girl is their precious little daughter.

Larisa told me when she grows up she wants to be a violin teacher. :) She really likes her teacher.

ahh it's thursday...

Well let's see, the Sox won last night, though I heard of a disturbing picture of Tom Brady wearing a Yankees hat ::shiver:: LOL

Coco Crisp is officially superman, the guy has taken 3 flying leaps that i've witnessed to catch balls and he catches them literally while airborne. What a studmuffin!!! Coco you have a fan here and while I like you I'm talking about my 7 year old little girl that loves you and has a shirt with your number and yells COCO anytime she sees you come up to bat.

I'm loading a video of Larisa practicing the violin. She is doing Taka Taka Stop Stop which is the most basic of moves for her and the first time she "plays" the violin. Yes you have to start simple on the violin, and even though she is not a symphony player YET I think it sounds like an angel singing. And I have no motherly bias right?

Here it is :)
