When you're planning an overseas move the simplest things can stress you out. Our portable dishwasher is making strange noises, and leaving grimy dishes, but we can't buy a new one for just seven months. In fact buying anything is an issue. I want a second electric pencil sharpener for the studio, but even the one we have can't come to Curitiba, the voltage is different over there.
This weekend my daughters went to a "Finding Nemo" birthday party. They had a blast and were so-o excited when the little boy's mom gave them a bowl with three goldfish on the way out the door. By the time I pulled the car into our driveway, they were official members of our family, and newly named "Sparkles", "Goldie", and "Bubbles".
