This morning on the way to school, G saw birds in the sky and said "look mami, the birds are flying and they are forming a V in the sky".
I told him that I think it is called a V formation but I wasn't sure why it was called that.
He said he knew.
He said they formed a V because they are going on Vacation.
... dunno about you but it sounds just about right for me ...

One of the upcoming things in G's calendar at his "little school" (= summer camp) is Maracas.  I am guessing that they would make their own maracas?  I'll find out later, lol

Either way, he asked what they were.  And I told him that they were musical instruments.

And then he goes ... like chicken drumsticks?

I. Almost. Cried. Laughing.

Yes papi, just like chicken drumsticks.

Four Boxes

This last weekend I got rid of four boxes.  Four boxes that were full of stuff ... mailings, coupons, magazines, bills ... you get the picture.

I guess is time to admit that I am a bit of a procrastinator.  

It's a side of me that I am not proud of.  But one that needs to be dealt with.

So tackling those four boxes is a pretty big thing for me.

I took what needed to be shredded to work.   It ended being in three bags.

And now I only have one box with my current stuff and all the magazines are in the magazine rack and the coupons are clipped and ready to be used.

It may mean not much to others, but it is a pretty big deal to me.

I am proud of myself, go me!
