Tattoo I did yesterday. Woo hoo!
My daughter has been in Spanish tutoring for about four months now.... and lemme tell you... I should have been paying attention. That little girl is already correcting my spanish and is finally comfortable yapping away. We had her quiet for awhile, but now she can yap in two languages. Congrats to her, though. I got bored with class and resorted to dropping her off.... and now Moosecake can now speak in all tenses... rather than my 1 1/2. Even better, officially back in school, Moosecake is Student of the Week. Minor accomplishment to some, but for my little Moosecake, I'm so proud of her! She's trying really hard. We'll make a dinner date just for the occasion.
My parents also left today. My ex suegros are in town now... in Yahualica, actually. I think there is a carnival there and we'll take the kids down this weekend to see the grandparents. It's been a year since they've seen them. Luckily, Little One is over the Chicken Pox and is back in action. It was a little difficult getting him to go back to school, considering he has spent the last week laying around, playing with my parents, and eating all sorts of goodies, but he's looking forward to taking Friday off to go see the abuelos, party it up, and eat all the damn carnitas he can.
One of the guys that works with us just came down with the Swine Flu. Scary!!! Wish us luck. He is currently being treated and will come back with a doctors note. Hubby and I don't want any contact with him until he is FULLY recovered. We still can't figure out where he got it.... the tattoo show? or the strip club? Either way, Eww.
Other than that, we're getting ready for Guanajuato. The 3 & 4th, there will be a tattoo show out there. We're not too excited to go. It was dead last year, but since it's so close and where hubby originally opened up a shop in 1995, we gotta go represent. Whoo-hoo *sarcasm. The following weekend, some good friends are coming up to spend the weekend and their birthday... so we're gonna head out to Guanajuato to party it up hard. Kiddos will go to Hubby's mom's house in San Pancho and find some new stuff to add to the Nacimiento, eat a truckload of fideo and come home speaking even BETTER spanish. A win-win for all of us.
I will post more photos soon... Ciao!

- I've been living in Mexico now for about a two years with my hubby and 2 kids. Not exactly by choice, but we're here nonetheless. Luckily, I live with quite a few of the accomodations that i was used to in the states. In spite of those convienences, we also have a water tank with asbestos, outdated electricity, massive amounts of dust, caterpillars that burn your skin, and thousands of windshield washers on every street corner. My kiddos and I are learning to speak spanish and adjust to life away from our family and friends in the States.
