Blogging by Candlelight
Just in case power doesn't return to our subdivision this evening and before my phone battery dies, let me quickly blog by candlelight!
I just got home and the boys had to say by themselves for over an hour since K had an event he was helping organize at he university. The boys lighted all the candles on their own, it was a bit scared when my son told me that over the phone.
I'm going to use our gas stove to cook some pasta and hopefully we can go to bed early, 'cause I'm pretty tired!
I'm a Brazilian immigrant (used to say expatriate, have problems with this word now), living in the U.S. since 1996 with my husband and two sons (born in March 2002 and May 2004). I'm a mother, first and foremost, -- mamãe in my mother-tongue, hence the (e) of the blog title -- but after "ten years and two sons" I finally finished my Ph.D. in literature in 2008. After six years away from teaching (including a year home/cyber schooling my sons - 2009-10), I'm finally back in higher-education. I've been blogging here for eleven years, so welcome to my site and feel free to stay for a while and look around. Our lives are a roller coaster, never lacking in ups and downs! ;-)
