A roller coaster of a day...

Yesterday was certainly a mixed bag of nuts...

First, I dropped my dog, Bella off to the hairdresser for the last time.... and the hairdresser almost started crying?! Wow, I mean...I like the way he cuts Bella's hair, but really? I guess you just never know what something means to a person. I always knew that he liked Bella. He always teased me about taking her home for him! (which didn't leave me with a good feeling as I left her there, hahaha!) He did a really nice job today, and she always smells so good when she comes back! Her newest nickname is Abe Vigoda...remember him and his bushy eyebrows? Well, here are his eyebrows reincarnated in Bella:


Next, we went to our son's 5th grade graduation ceremony. The girls were dressed like it was a prom, and most of the boys had on suits or nice slacks and a shirt. It was a nice ceremony and I felt proud of my son when he put his hand over his heart as we sang the National Anthem. He makes us proud in his studies and he works hard. He was a bit upset when he didn't receive the award from Barack Obama, but I think he is getting over that now...(many hours later!)

Then it was a normal afternoon...except that my husband stayed home instead of going back to work after the graduation! And it was especially nice because...

My daughter fell after tennis class and chipped her 3 front teeth! Well, 2 are really not too bad and were able to be filed....but one, the front one, had a large corner actually chip completely off! We rushed her to the dentist and she took x-rays. It seems like there isn't any root damage so not root canal, YEA! Luckily her jaw bones were fine also...
so, she put her chip back on (?no clue what that will do in a few days time)...but it should at least get us to the US on Tuesday. She has a plastic type thing (sorry for the terrible description) holding her teeth together since the one that is chipped seems to be moving slightly.

Ah....it never ends...

Sounds like a very busy time there. Love Bella's eye brows!!! And so sorry to read about your daughter's mishap. I hate it when children get hurt! Hope her teeth mend up ok, meanwhile she probably isn't the happiest camper. Best wishes to all.

Glad the fall did not do worse damage. My husband flipped on a bike in his early teens, landing on face and chipping several of his lower teeth. While he has not had any problems in the last 10 years or so, he did through his teens and twentys.

Can't imagine a move that big, just moving my stepdaughter, with what little she had, from Georgia to PA was an undertaking. Hang in there!

Oh, love the pooch - so sweeeet - especially the brows :)

Sorry about the teeth part (that one will prob. give me nightmares later,...) - love your poochie and what a cute hairdresser ;) !
And well done for your son, even though he didn't get the Obama prize ;)
Safe travels!

Isn´t it always like that? When it´s busy it gets super busy and that´s when the accidents happen. Sorry about your daughters teeth. Hopefully she´ll be ok, till you find a dentist in the US.

I'm glad your son had a nice graduation ceremony, even without President Obama. I hope he wasn't too disappointed.

I'm sorry about your daughter's tooth. I hope it will be all right soon.

Ok, that is too much!!!!

I hope everything sets in its places on the next few days down here.


I was so sad when Light set up a meeting on June 16th in Rio. If it was this past week, we could have met.... Well, it will have to wait ; )
