Today was especially happy around here…
For starters, a cool front has moved in and a very nice (and quite cool) breeze has been blowing all afternoon.
On Tuesdays, the girls stay at school until 2:30 (vs noon on all the other days). Around noon I got a call from the school. I always worry when I see the school number on the caller ID but today wasn’t a call to come pick up a sick or injured child (thank goodness!). Maestra Maria was calling to tell me that the ballet instructor couldn’t come today but that the girls had already prepared for their nap and she told me they could just stay there until 2:30 anyways. That was good news since I was knee deep in mop water at the time. But the really good news? They rescheduled ballet for tomorrow…and that means the girls will stay again until 2:30 tomorrowÂ and I get a free day all to myself that I did not plan on. AND I cleaned my house from top to bottom today so tomorrow really is a free day. Yay me!Â
And my final bit of happy news for the day…As I was driving down the street that leads to my neighborhood, something caught my eye…
Sure, these already exist in Puerto Rico – but the nearest one is 30 minutes away – in a crowded mall with very little available parking. Not only is this now walking distance from my house, it appears there will also be a drive thru.
So, yes, I’m thrilled to have such caffeinated goodnessÂ in my very neighborhood butÂ I’m also I’m hopeful that this might bring even more business to our little neck of the island. Who know’s maybe there is still hope for a Target in Puerto Rico? One can only hope!
