On Valentine’s Day after my very depressing post, we finally went out to dinner to Bajio’s. It’s not a romantic place at all, and so we figured it wouldn’t be crowded. So we went, and we loved the food. I felt slightly guilty because for once my kids ate ALL of the food we got […]

First of all, Happy Valentine’s Day! There hasn’t been much romance in this household, but there’s been a lot of love. El Cangri and I baked cookies this morning, and he “wowed” and “ahhhhed” every time I rolled the dough and pressed the cookie cutters. He also cut the cookies, and did a splendid job […]

Her name is Dandelion Luna, Dandi for short, and she’s such a cutie. Dandi is a Yorkshire Terrier, and she’s a very good representative of her breed: beautiful teddy bear face, mellow personality, […]

We’re in the middle of January, and it has snow everyday, I think, this year so far. But this time, for the first time ever, I’m not complaining about Winter; in fact, I’m loving it, and I haven’t even used my brand-new 3 year-old snowboard! Yes, I’ve had it for three years, but I’ve never […]

The children are in bed, the house is clean and quiet. How I love this time of the day!!!! I really savor every minute of my loneliness. As a child I loved being by myself in my room, reading, singing, thinking…Maga is a lot like that, and come to think of it, so is Juli. […]

I really wanted to start the year posting something, so here I am. Today my mother-in-law said that whatever we do on New Year Day, we’ll do the rest of the year. So, today I haven’t showered yet, we ate at Golden Corral for brunch (I hate that restaurant…), I made cookies, tried not to […]
