Living for your kids....

This weekend I really felt as if I lived for my kids. I had 2 eventful days and now I feel as if I need a break from the weekend. Its not that I had a great time taking ten around and seeing them having a great time. But the amount of time spent getting them ready, packing a bag, packing snacks, piling them into the car, taking care of them, making sure they ate... making sure they were hydrated... making sure you 2 year did not fall to sleep... making sure they had fun... completely pooped me out!!!!

My kids had a great weekend... but I do not know if I can do this every time at the same pace. I literally had to drag myself out of bed for work and drink coke to get me going. Most challenging is being a teacher and maintaining the same energy (which I do not have... or what little I do have is depleting fast) throughout the day.

So basically all I want is to get home and spend some needed quality time with my bed. I want to snuggle into my warm bed, dive under the thick smooth blanket and indulge in the cool air-conditioned room and forget the day... forget the weekend... forget that tomorrow is another workday!!!

Wish me luck and I hope your week started off better than mine.

My Version of Fall.

I have been seeing on other blogs beautiful pictures of the ever changing and eye stimulating Fall season. Honestly living in Trinidad limits your experiences of the changing seasons and seeing how spring turns to summer to fall and then winter. All I have is endless summer greenery. All I have is the constant warm weather and lush green rain forests.

So I have been living vicariously through other blog admiring the Fall pictures and sometimes questioning if it is really true. Then I had a beautiful sunny day yesterday and got to spend the day just lying on a beach and soaking in the sun. So I decided to give you all my version of Fall. And see what we get during the Fall Season.


 I visited a beach house in Blanchisseuse Beach and it was attached to 3 different bays. It was fun just splashing in the waves, and fun exploring each bay in the warming sun.

This was a bird's eye view of the bay that had clear green water and little watery caves to hide under. My son really liked…

Hate is a strong word.

When you live on a small island like I do in Trinidad, you really do not want to be too outspoken about terrible things happening to someone you know, because it is almost as if you are talking about it happening in your own backyard. But the fact is, terrible things do happen and unfortunately it sometimes happen to people you know or people who you cannot ignore.

In the last month there was a unforgettable incident of a little girl being attacked and physically taken advantage of ... and this rocked out entire community. Mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, granddaughters and friends were really disturbed about the attack... because you do feel as if it has happened in your back yard! For a few weeks no one felt safe in their own homes and everyone was whispering about the ever changing rumors of the whereabouts of a man, who manage to physically hurt 1 and mentally hurt 100s.

In my heart I do feel sorry for the young girl and pray that through God, family and friends she can be a su…
