We are all wet. The storm last night tore a few roofs and flooded us. Do you remember Maria, the girl with the tele gondolas? The storm took the roof over their heads, to the despair of her family. We weren’t any better off. Last night was wet. So wet, wet to the bone, our toes looking like raisins. We positioned ourselves well, so that it doesn’t rain in our heads, but can’t say the same about our poor feet.

Like in a fairy tale, the Universe played with us and on Friday we were shared by a famous writer / blogger in Romania. Although we were colleagues when I worked in Romania and saw each other pretty often, we didn’t have the chance to go out for a beer and know each other better. We use this occasion to thank Radu for the share and the nice words. More about Radu here: http://www.radufconstantinescu.ro

Bad luck and nice surprises come in pairs so the next day Republica published our article. We also thank Republica for their trust and exposure. If you didn’t have the chance to read our article, you can see it here if you know Romanian! 🙂

The interesting part is that, although the topic was about unschooling, each and every comment we received was about or at least touched the subject of money. That is, how, where from… the secret, maaaan!

On one side, I understand. That is why we decided that we must cover this subject also, although Lavinia was preparing to write about priorities, values and the way we see life. But if money is the interest, then money it is!

Why would I want to upset our readers? 🙂

So as I was sitting like this, wet, I ask Lavinia:

“How much money do we have?”

She tries to tell me something by eye connection.

I went on out loud:

“I would go to a hotel”

Kids hear me and start screaming:

“We don’t want to leave the beach, we like it here with our friends, we like going on the beach and gather toys after the storm, they know this and they teach us. If you want to spend some money, buy a jar of Nutella!”

So… we ate Nutella. 🙂







Am ramas cu toate lucrurile ude. Furtuna din noaptea trecuta a rupt cateva acoperisuri ale dughenelor din zona si noua ne-a injectat apa cu presiune prin toate coltisoarele. Va mai aduceti aminte de Maria, fetita cu gondolele? Furtuna i-a zburat acoperisul spre disperarea familiei.

Nici noi nu am iesit mai bine! Noaptea trecuta a fost umeda! O noapte umeda, pana la piele pentru ca degetele picioarelor pareau niste smochine.

Da, ne-am asezat bine, strategic, de asa natura incat sa nu ne picure apa in cap dar vai de picioare acum! 🙂

Ca printr-un facut, Universul s-a jucat cu noi si vineri seara am fost share-uiti de catre un mare scriitor/ blogger din Romania. Desi am lucrat impreuna sub umbrela aceluiasi trust vazandu-ne des, nu s-a intamplat niciodata sa iesim impreuna la bere si sa avem ocazia sa ne cunoastem mai bine, ca sa zic asa! Pe aceasta cale iti multumim, Radu, pentru apreciere si pentru cuvintele frumoase! Mai multe despre Radu aici: http://www.radufconstantinescu.ro

Ghinioanele si surprizele frumoase intotdeauna vin in seturi de doua, asa ca in acelasi timp si Republica a postat articolul trimis de noi. Multumim si Republicii pentru increderea si expunerea acordata. Daca nu ati citit articolul, puteti intra aici sa aruncati o privire. Foarte tare este ca desi subiectul a fost despre unschooling, toate, dar toate intrebarile care ne-au venit, nu au ratat subiectul bani.

Adica ce, cum, de unde… secretu’ nene!

Pe undeva, inteleg. De aceea, am decis cu Lavinia ca este necesar sa atingem si acest subiect, desi, in continuarea seriei de pe Republica Lavinia ar fi vorbit despre prioritati, valori si felul in care percepem viata. Daca bani se cere, pai de bani sa fie, nu?

Pai de ce-as vrea eu sa supar lumea?! 🙂

Si cum stateam eu ud, asa, o intreb pe Lavinia:

–  Auzi, cati bani mai avem?

Ea, din priviri ma intreaba de ce?!

Eu, cu voce, raspund ca as merge la un hotel!

Copiii, aud si tipa, strigand:

–  Noi nu vrem sa plecam la Hotel, ne place aici cu prietenii nostri, sa mergem la plaja sa adunam jucarii dupa furtuna, ei stiu, ei ne invata! Dar daca vreti sa cheltuim bani, hai sa luam un borcan mare de Nutela!

Asa ca… am mancat Nutela! 🙂
