Events of the week for June 14 - 20

Hi everyone! Sorry I missed the event listing for last week... its been a CRAZY week! First Monkeyboy got run over by a car on Sunday night... seriously! He's fine though... just a sprained ankle and a lot of deep tissue bruising on his legs. He needs to be on crutches but he's walking a little better, at least!

Then, I had an "intensive class" at school. That is a class that, instead of meeting regularly all semester long, meets all day, every day, for just one week. A whole semester of work is wedged into one week! So every morning I had to be at school by eight am, be in class from 8 am to 3:30 pm, spend 3:30 to 5:45 in the computer lab trying to get a ton of hefty assignments done, and then be back in  my evening classes from 6 to 9:15 pm! Crazy, right?

Luckily, thats over, and this week its back to business as usual.
Unluckily, I lost a week of pay (babysitting Rafael) this past week because I was in school, and I'm losing another week of pay this coming week because Rafael's big sister is watching him to work off a debt to her mother. So, I am FLAT BROKE! If anyone needs a babysitter, please let me know... I even have a website, ... if you need more info. Please email me (I'll check my email regularly) because I think my phone is going to be out of order this week since I can't even afford to pay the bill!

And now... here are the events for the week! Things are getting more and more awesome now that summer is here!

I am so sorry about your son. What a horrible thing? I completely understand about not updating your blog as often as you like when life gets hectic. I am so behind in the posts I'd like to make, but, at least in my case, it's because we're having so much fun!

He's okay... nearly back to normal now! We went to Six Flags and pushed him around in a wheelchair, and got to go to the front of the lines for all the rides, so it cheered him up!
