all in a day´s work.

amalio woke up for work this morning a little late.

and when he got downstairs, the front, drivers side tire was flat in the car.

and it was much easier to leave it for me and take the bus to work.

and if you know anything about latin american culture, you can just imagine the dirty looks from women and disbelieving stares from men as i went downstairs in my house dress (because, yes, i wear housedresses) to change the tire.

one guy even tried to take the job out of my hands...

because you know women can´t change a tire.

(and if i trusted that a dominican man could change a tire i would have let him, but i´ve seen enough in the past 5 years to know that i should never assume a man with a car knows how to change the tires or jump it)

tooooooooooooo early

samil has decided it´s fun to wake up before 7.

and of course, the naptimes -do not coincide.

which would be fine if amely didn´t go to bed at 930 but wake up at 3am to tell me how incredibly disgusting this unseasonal heatwave makes her feel.

hopefully soon it will no longer reach temperatures of 600 degrees farenheit and 90% humidity.
