My life is NEVER boring, and there is always something too cRaZy or too uNBeLieBLe going on... A couple of days ago was no exception...

First thing to read this, you need to be able to picture my kitchen on your head... I dont have photos, so I had to google online and this was the most similar photo that I found... Instead of the microwave, picture an extractor fan (which means a heavier appliance).
Photobucket

My kitchen cabinets also had a rack for plates in the left bottom side of the cabinet, and on top of the fan extractor there is an open space, which have tea cup sets, and a few other "breakeable" stuff.

My kitchen is rectangular, and very narrow.... In the front of this cabinet, there is another cabinet just like this one, but instead of having the extractor fan and stove, it has an empty space for the window where the extrator fan is in the other side, AND it has the sink where the stove is in the other side (I hope you are able to picture this on your head).

So, I was doing the dishes so I could start cooking, and suddlendly the COMPLETE cabinet where the extractor fan was felt on top of me... If you had a good picture on my kitchen on your head, you will realize that the cabinet that felt was the one that was on my back... As the kitchen is very narrow, there wasnt space for it to felt all the way to the floor because I was there... That means that my body had to actually hold it until hubby came to help me...

I have no idea how much weight that was, but it was A LOT.... All the plates and tea cup sets broke down (some of them broke on top of my feet... there was blood everywhere).. The extractor fan didnt broke down, but it sure hurt a lot while I was holding it... The back of my left arm was the part of my body that was more hurt...

The good news is that it could have been a lot of worse, specially since I was about to start cooking... PICTURE THAT!!! Also, I kicked out Mimi a minute or so before this happened!

I went to the doctor and after seeing several X-Rays, she told me that I have a severe muscle spam on my neck, and that I may need therapy for it... It does hurts VERY bad in the neck area and the left shoulder!!

Even since Gaby went to El Arca Pet Shop she has been asking to go back with us. I think the advertisement that place is doing with the children's tours is awesome, because Gaby even wants me to make the food shopping at their Supermarket.

It was time to feed the animals, and the guy who was doing it let the girls touch some of the animals, and even got to feed the hamsters...

The girls were happy seeing the Iguanas:

It was SOO HOT today that we decided at the very last minute to go to the beach!! We normally leave at around 8 or 9 in the morning everytime we go, but today we actually got to the beach at the time we are normally heading back (2-3 in the afternoon)....

My mother in law was craving really bad for a fried fish, and she had it:

I was under the umbrella all the time, because even though the chicken pox only lasted one day, I still had a thing in my face that I didnt want to expose to the sun... I still had a great time watching them and taking photos!!!

She has been ready to start potty trainning since she was around 18 months old, but I really havent put much effort into it... Today she asked to go potty, and she pee!

Am I ready for this? Im certainly NOT!

This photo was taken yesterday at "El Malecon" and it needed its own POST. Is this the best stroller ever or what??
Photobucket

Sadly I wasnt brave enough to ask for the brand. Please, dont forget to notice that she actually has a kid on top of her sleeping on the blue blankets... The kid was around 25 pounds because he was around 18 months old.

Last year Gaby was in a Multi-Age program, which means that Pre-K and K were one grade. Even though the 4 year old kids participated of the Moving Up Ceremony at the end of the school year, some kids (Gaby included) were staying in preschool, and not moving up to First Grade because of the age.

This year Gaby is actually "graduating" from preschool and getting ready to go to FIRST grade! I still havent get used to the idea, but I eventually will understand that my little girl is growing up.

The school will be moving to a new location for mid next school year, and the ceremony was at the new location. My mother in law and mom were there with us, and the girls really enjoyed the ceremony. We were scared that Gaby was not going to say a line that she was suppose to say by herself, because that is what happened on the Mother's Day presentation, but SHE DID!!! We actually made her TONS of promises and offered her TONS of stuff in reward of it, and we wont dissapoint her.

Backstage... Getting ready....

This photo is very blurry, but it shows when she was going to talk by herself on the microphone:

CONGRATULATIONS GABRIELA MICHELE!

Ps: My friend Luz was there taking photos, and I cant be more grateful for that... Thanks Luz!!
