Joanna has a loose tooth!

OMG, almost brought tears to my eyes. We were in Target and she showed it to Carmen. What? Let me see! There it was, a wiggly tooth. One of the bottom front. Wahhhhhhhhhhh! I took a picture but, you can't really tell it's loose.

Yesterday was Meet the Teacher at her new school. I had called earlier to request her being switched to a regular class instead of the Dual Language class. Well, it wasn't updated and we spent 3o mins. in the wrong class. Sigh...and once we learned where her real class would be, we find out her teacher was out sick. So, Monday we will meet her and then leave her to join the other parents in a Boo-Hoo Breakfast.

Wow, she will be in class for the WHOLE day!

In other news, my mom was taken to the ER night before last. She was having the same symptoms as before when it was a heart attack. Thankfully, it was not a heart attack. They couldn't find what was wrong but, they said she had gallstones......and that it was not anything to be worried about right now but, to keep it in mind. WTF? Shaking my head at that.

R.I.P Philip

August 18, 1947 - July 29, 2008

My mom goes to dialysis 3 times a week. She, as usual, made some friends.

One whom was Philip, or as I usually called him, Charles. He looked like a Charles. Then about a month ago, he told me his middle name was Charles. Imagine that.

Sometimes he wouldn't show because he'd end up in the hospital. He had ulcers in his feet and just touching them on the floor brought him moans of pain.

Well, last week he hadn't shown for more than usual. So my mom finally asked today. And yes, he had passed.

I am so angry at myself that I couldn't take the time to go to his apt to check on him. We'd give him a ride home most of the time. Supposedly I've been too busy. I'd only remember when taking mom to dialysis and I'd forget by the time we got home.

Philip was a sweetie. I will miss him. I got to meet his mom the last time I took him home. He said he hadn't seen her in 3 months. Thank you, God, for that.

I'm sorry Charles. Too little too late, I know, but I'm sorry. R.I.P.

We're going to be Godparents!

To this beautiful baby boy....

His name is Cesar. He's Mayela's, hubby's sister in Mexico. OMG, he's so cute. And not fussy.

They are planning on a December baptism. Joanna will have to miss out. :( That's the only thing I hate but, I can't expect Mayela to wait on us til he's 5!! ARghhh!!

Dang immigration!!!


It was a sorry ass trip and I will never ride Turimex again. And Monteczuma got his reveng!

On the way to Monterrey

Mexico, that is.

But, Joanna still can't come. :(

We're taking our nephew to the American Consulate for a voluntary deportation while he awaits his appointment to Cuidad Juarez.

I had to stick like glue because I wanted to see the friends. I do feel extremely guilty leaving her but, I asked Victoria to stay the weekend with her. That made it better for her. She loves Victoria even if Victoria is annoyed with her sometimes. Pffttt!

Adios for now....

My first sweat check.

$129.55. Whoo! And I sweated every hour for 20 hours for that chump change. But, guess what, its MY money. I made it. If I wanted to, I wouldn't have to depend on anyone. Freedom!


It does feel good, tho.

BTW, I now have a job at the Dallas Cowboys warehouse. Folding, tagging, bagging and packing merchandise. It is easy easy easy. But my feet! I just worked a whole week and its getting better.

Hubby had a test on heat stress and it says that the body takes 5-7 days to adjust and I guess its true.

I think I'm gonna make it. :)
