.:it's a hard pets' life:.

... in our household...

first of all, I'd like to remind you of our cute cat pet friend: Flea

she's a cutie, isn't she? a kitten, full of energy and sharp claws and teeth(or should I say fangs for their efficiency?)

at this stage of life she's come to understand that our little lady is not to be pestered on, and when she decides to play nicely the best way to make it out is to endure whatever comes your way as bravely as you can manage... run not, fight not!

yeah, our cat has decided that the safest place to be is among sweet little pea's toys, maybe she can just pass by unobserved... or not... but it is worth trying (well, with a tireless toddler around you'd better try anything to preserve your sanity)...

and then, when all is peace and quite let me introduce you to Poly (the parrot, yeah, how original! it was supposed to be Circus, because, you know, a cat and a bird in the same small apartment?!? "flea circus"!!! hellooo... but alas, I was outnumbered, so Polly it is... )

she arrived at our humble abode yesterday, and let's just say that running in the afternoon to scape a little bit the chaos that has installed itself at home was a REALLY good idea... ;)  (ps.: that gig is going pretty well, if I may say so... when I get to the end of it I just want to start over again... ^^ I'll let you know as soon as I hit the part in the program where I want to kill whoever got it planned... )

So, now we're in the count 4X1... Female domination... buahuahua... the pets have behaved so far, but let's be honest, the've been around each other for barely 24 hours... so here is hoping for the best (as in, the cat doesn't eat the bird, the toddler doesn't decide to make the bird fly or teach the cat how to hunt)...

a pretty ordinary life... =)

And just because I couldn't help republishing an old photo after uploading the last shot... the eyes are still the same... lovely little lady...

.:run, baby, run:.

ok, I didn't think it would be that much fun... I expected tiring, boring, torturous, instead I really enjoyed it... sure, I didn't get to the running bit yet, but the first day was reaaallly enjoyable, guess my humour and the attitude helped a little (as well as the playlist I got singing - yeah, can you believe it? I could even sing through it, I'm telling you, great!)

PS.: picture from the road taken today (but not from today because I'm not that coordinate to run and take photos simultaneously)

guess this was too much endorphine for one day... ;)

so let's get to some fun conversation...

#1 - on my bike incident (no it was not an accident, as it was pretty ridiculous to even be considered so)...
Me: I fell off the bike
Hubby: how?
Me: I hit the sidewalk
Hubby: again: HOW?!?!
Me: (*in a pretty low voice) a gecko was crossing the street
Hubby: you got scared?
Me: (*even lower voice) nope... didn't want to run over it
Hubby: can't believe it! Not to kill a gecko
Me: what? it is an animal... it is like when we are in the car and I tell you to swerve because there is a cat ahead
Hubby: uhum... and how many times did I swerve..
Me: none... but you are heartless
Hubby: no, if it is "kill wild life" or "pain and suffering" always choose "kill the wild life"!

#2 - when one of our neighbours waved from inside his car while we were walking by the street.
Me: who was it?
Hubby: Bob (fictional name)
Me: which one?
Hubby: what do you mean which one?
Me: there are two in our building.
Hubby: I know it, but did you miss the car he was in?
Me: no, I saw it all right. a dark car...
Hubby: vanessa, one antonio drives a ford, the other one drives a bmw...
Me: ok, I see where you're going... (pause) so which one was that?

.:back to school:.

Hey! long time no see!

we've been busy bees with back to school week(s)... as it is her first time ever the introduction to academic life here happens in four stages:
1. one hour with parents + one hour alone
2. three hours alone
3. lunch at school
4. lunch + nap time at school

all of this is spread in a time spam of three weeks... so far we've reached stage three, and the first melt downs... I'll spill the beans and give more details when our routine has been better settled...

for the time being I'll leave with a photo for each each of school life...
first day - can you say fake smile?!

the cutest ever BFF!!! ^^

see you soon! (or not...)
