Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
For a brief period of time we had a wonderful woman, Antonia, who would clean for us. Amazingly she would also cook dinner on her day. She made a chicken with rice that the kids loved. When they didnít feel well she would warm up a coca cola and add cinnamon and nutmeg and nurse them with that. They loved that also. When she went back to Guatemala we were on our own again.

On the days that the kids were not feeling well, Alberto was in charge of their comforts. Bed, tv, and for lunch spaghetti with tuna. When I was sick, I got Campbellís chicken noodle soup and crackers. Tony and Anne got spaghetti with tuna. Iíve never figured out the medical effects of that lunch but it seemed to work and they were all sparky when I made it home from work and sent Alberto off to the bike store.
