Casi Una Semana / Almost A Week

A continuación voy a desglozar algunas de las cosas que han ocurrido en nuestro hogar desde el pasado 6 de febrero.

Domingo 6: Hubo percances con la tubería del fregadero (hubo que arreglarlo en el momento por que ya filtraba el agua al gabinete). También este día la comida se me quemó.

Lunes, martes y miércoles: Gracias a Dios fueron días extremadamente tranquilos.

Jueves 10: Sofia se cayó en el patio y se abrió la barbilla lo que requirió de 7 puntos. Fueron unos momentos horribles el ver como cosían el golpe y verla gritando, simplemente horrible.

Viernes 11: Nuestra guagua y único medio de transportación se daña. Hasta el día de hoy no tenemos ni idea de para cuándo volveremos a tenerla ya que estamos buscando cotizaciones para las piezas (la única cotización hasta el momento es de $300 y obviamente, no podemos costearlo).

Sábado 12: En la madrugada Paola despierta llorando con dolor de oídos y fiebre. Durante el día hubo mejoría pero no mucha.

Domingo 13: Las niñas salieron con mi mamá y mi sobrina, mientras Pablo y yo nos dedicamos a preparar los cupcakes para el siguiente día.

Lunes 14: No puedo decir que tuve el mejor ni el peor día de San Valentín pero, tampoco pude realizar las cosas que quería. Mi mamá me tuvo que llevar a la escuela de las nenas para que disfrutaran de su fiesta.

Martes 15: Mi hermana nos prestó su carro. Seguimos la búsqueda de las piezas para la guagua y llevamos a Paola al médico, el diagnóstico infección de gargantas y oído. Como ella no quiere tomarse los medicamentos hubo que recurrir a inyectar el antibiótico.

Miércoles y jueves: Mis niñas no pudieron a la escuela por falta de transportación.

En fin, esos han sido nuestros días.

I will tell you some of the things that have occurred in our home since last February 6.

Sunday 6: There was a problem with the plumbing of the sink (it had to be fixed at the moment because it had already filtered water to the cabinet). Also this day the food was burned.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday: Thanks to God those were extremely tranquil days.

Thursday 10: Sofia fell in the patio and her chin was opened which required of 7 stitches. Those were some horrible moments to see as they sewed the cut and to listen her screaming, just horrible.
Friday 11: Our minivan and only way of transportation is damaged. Still today we do not have an idea of when we will have it running again since we are still seeking for the parts(the only quotation we have up to now is of $300 and obviously, we cannot cost it).

Saturday 12: In the early morning Paola woke up crying because a pain in her ear and fever. During the day there was improvement but not a lot of.

Sunday 13: The girls left with my mom and my niece, while Pablo and I dedicate time to make cupcakes for the following day.

Monday 14: I cannot say that I had the best nor the the worst Valentine's day. I could not do the things that I wanted to do that day. My mom had to take us to school so the girls would be able to enjoy their Valentine's party.

Tuesday 15: My sister lent us her car. We continue the search for the minivan parts and we took Paola to the doctor, the diagnostic was infection of throat and ear. Since she does not want to take her medicines the only solution was to inject the antibiotic.

Wednesday and Thursday: My girls were not able to go school because the lack of transportation.

In short, those have been our days.

oh no! what a week. I bet you were glad for the 3 tranquil days.

Poor Sophia..I busted my chin open when I was in 1st grade...Thankfully, no stitches.

Hope your van gets fixed soon. We had major van issues last year...it is overwhelming and emotionally not to mention financially draining. I don't know what shipping would cost from the states..but my hubby purchases parts from the auto warehouse website..I can try to get that web address for you. Let me know.
