When I wake up I really like to start the day with calm so I don’t get stressed. When things go well, I go to bed at night telling myself how much I liked my day because I did things that fulfill me, make me feel good, and that I did something good; that I added a grain of sand in making this crazy world better. I can then get to sleep peacefully for my 7 hours so that I will be full of energy. My mornings start at 7am, answering emails and phone calls. I put the day on hold until about 8:30 or 9am. Then I sit down for breakfast with my husband—either delicious scrambled or fried eggs with cereal, oatmeal, fruit, or yogurt. We usually like having breakfast at the café in La Aurora. I love their green juice, which is quite delicious. Everything there is very tasty—crepes, chilaquiles, etc.
My work day lasts around 10 hours and when I finish my tasks I sit down with my husband to talk and organize what we will do at night. Before it used to be getting together with friends or having something to eat downtown. Atrio, Mi Vida, or Bruno on Mesones are some of my favorite restaurants.
I spend my afternoons on courses or meetings with the Red Cross. At 7pm I shut off my computer so I can enjoy time with my husband and sometimes with my son. We like to see many things related to art, documentaries, series, etc. I love spending time at La Buhardilla, a place full of art and antiques at Fábrica La Aurora. This is what the attics in the old houses used to be called as they were a place to store the decorations that were replaced with new ones as they were acquired. We tend to watch a lot of movies because my husband is addicted to movies and has about 5,000 that he has compiled throughout his life.
Every day I call my 100-year-old mother for 30 minutes to an hour. I love my life, I am blessed that I have been given the privilege of presiding over the Red Cross. This allows me to support all kinds of people.
