After a long day at work we had a meeting with our boss. It was not a nice meeting but at least he paid half of our salary. Not the best news but at least and for the moment we received something.

After the staff meeting the girls and I went home and got showers, checked their backpack and complete some homework, ate and went back to our school for another meeting. This particular meeting was with a group of parents that are going to help in the fundraising area.

When we got back home checked the last things and got prepared to sleep. Definitely, a long and exhausted day. And if you count that one of the girls had problems to sleep well, it was a longgggggggggggggggggggg nighttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

They are so different!!!!!

My girls are so cute but so different. Sofia loves dresses, skirts, shine, heels and every single girly stuff. Paola in the other hand prefers pants, skirts, no halter, and sometimes, well rarely, dresses.
Definitely, is a truly adventurous and glamorous way to see them pick their clothes.

Not My Best 1st Day of Work!!!

Today was my first day back to work since Christmas break. We were supposed to had meetings during the morning and then went to our classrooms to cleaned and work. Well our meeting was all day and my boss didn't completed the whole agenda. When you went back to work you have motivation, energy, anxious to create and make fun things and of course, we need the money so, we are anxious to have our salary.

Well, the first point that my boss said was: "We are not sure if you are going to receive your paycheck". WHAT? Are you serious? Yes, because we have financial problems. It was like recieving a cold bucket of water. I mean, I have a family. That was the first thing.

After that she said we have to go to a meeting on February and each one has to pay $30 and if you paid after the deadline you have to pay some charges. Really? But how is that possible because I didn't confirmed it? Come on? NO ONE, Anyone of us knows about it? Oh, but wait I almost forget the best part, if I don't go to the meeting (that I have to pay for it) they are going to discount $60 of my salary. Yes, you read it good, $60? What? Why? Well because remembered they have financial problems at the company and they don't have money to pay. So, let's discount that amount of money and that is.

It was a long and frustrated day, I cried, I was angry, is not fair that I have to pay for the mistakes of other people. Is not my problem that they don't have money. I need my salary, is my money and I work for it.

I'm praying that this semester goes fast. At this moment, I don't like my job.


PS: Sorry if have some gramatical problems, I'm still angry, frustrated.

Today Pablo and I spend our day at the mall. We were looking for the "perfect" gift or gifts for the girls because on Tuesday we celebrate the Three Kings Day. The mall was not crowded but most stores don't had lots of toys and we were looking and looking and getting frustrated with that. After maybe, five hours we bought some things and went home.

Yesterday I ended sleeping with the girls. They had big beds now (twin size) but it not the best place to sleep two persons. I slept with Sofia while Paola stayed in her bed. It was a longggggg night. I woke up several times during the night, not my favorite night. Pablo has worked and by noon he was out of work. Well, when he arrived home we still were sleeping, ha!

Our afternoon consisted in deep cleaning to the living room, dinning room and the girls bedroom (can't wait to share the pictures of their "new" room). While we cleaned the girls watched Jesse, they are obsessed with it and play with my kitchen pans. At least, they had lots of fun.
