Last Celebration

Tonite we celebrate the big 3-0 one more time. PR Dad's side of the family is taking us out to dinner tonite! This should be the last celebration of my oldness. After this I just go on living my life as a 30 year old. This weekend looks like a mellow one for us. PR Dad is working all weekend and I even have laundry all done. So my future looks like, cleaning house, playing tea party with The Phi and knitting, knitting, knitting. I have figured out a way to combine my desk job with knitting. We send our RD's gifts for their birthdays and so I am knitting some scarves for the winter birthdays! I also have an order from my niece Chone for a doll sized blanket and pillow for her American girl doll. And she told me to "snap to it" so I got to get on that!

Now everyone please join me in a standing ovation for my comadre! (Are you on your feet clapping and whistling because this is big news!) My comadre Patricia is a recent PhD grad from UCLA and is currently a professor of Chicano Studies at a Cal State. She submitted her dissertation to the American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education / Educational Testing Service Dissertation Competition (aka AAHHE/ETS) and she won. First prize! Yes people this family is good looking and smart too!


  1. Go Patti! Woo Hoo!
    Mom and Elaine got some material for the bed too, so I guess you dont have to snap to it to fast.

    i am so proud of my sis, she is very modest and did not think she would win either, but don't sell yourself short(i think thats the saying).
