I have to say, that there have been no major problems here recently.
Knock on wood.
I think we've settled into a bit of a routine, and figuring out how to get out of urgent mode. I hope I'm not speaking too soon!
I did have a few silly things happen:
1. I accidentally made 25 calls to the police ("190"). My old cell phone doesn't have a SIM card, so it can only make emergency calls. I thought I'd turned it off before putting it in my purse, but I guess I didn't. Oops.
2. I locked the keys in the Fusca after dropping the kids off at school. Thankfully I didn't have to be somewhere right away, and Matt was available to give me his keys before I had to pick the kids up.
But aside from that I did:
-get the oil topped off in the car (gosh, I wondered why the "oil" light was on...)
-find a new and better place to get copies
-got myself set up to accompany Sebastian to soccer practice at the club (ID, finger prints, first born child... you know the routine)
-make it through an hour of the 3 hour long parent meeting at the kids school
The kids have a "Grito do Carnaval" tomorrow at school, or from what I can gather, a Caranaval Party. I've got a Carnaval Party for my work tomorrow, and I will be playing/singing this song. We've got several invitations for fun things over Carnaval, and I'm looking forward to some time together as a family, and celebrating our Braziliversary (one year!)
