Saturday, February 18, 2012: Good Morning Sam! I am at the house a little early. Traffic is always a crapshoot near the border, so I try to err on the side of caution. Better to be early than late. You are at ballet. It’s time for you to train for the next recital. I will see you soon. It’s interesting to see how chaotic things are in that house. Tina is not there anymore. Apparently Adriana Coronel Tenorio (AKA Adriana Howitt Coronel, Ari Coronel, Ari Coronel Tenorio, Ari Howitt, Ari Howitt Coronel) cannot afford her. Another woman is there with her 2 kids doing Tina’s job. I recognize the woman from before when Adriana felt she needed 2 nannies, back when she was running her prostitution business. Frankly, I am not sure why she needs these people in the first place. Nobody in that house works anyway. With a little time management and delegation, the same could be accomplished by everyone who already lives in the house. What do I know. It’s none of my business. Although, I noticed the fish tank is getting dirty. Gold fish, and perhaps fish in general, produce a lot of ammonium. If their tanks are not cleaned regularly the water becomes too toxic for them and they will pass away. That tank is about 20-gallons. It’s a decent size. While you were taking a shower I decided to stay out of trouble, score some brownie points and clean the tank. Besides, we both know most or all of those fish would be dead next week if I did not do it.

Today was spent mostly with you and your friend who was at the house today. It was cool to see you with your friends. Adriana planned a homework date with some other friends. The assignment: make a replica of Mexico’s first flag after they succeeded from Spain. Not much I can say in protest, it is school. And it’s not like plans could be changed. Its interesting to learn what you are learning in school. I LOVE YOU SAM!
