Can't believe over a year ago I started this blog. Although, I have been away quite a bit and not continuously posting on my blog (that's an understatement huh?), I'm still here behind scenes reading others posts, writing and editing small posts, that I can't seem to finish, so I could maybe, just maybe, bring… Continue reading My Blog is over a year old?!
What is up with my kids? or is it just me? They suddenly change into this little unrecognizable flippant and sassy monsters (don't get me wrong, love them; they're beautiful, very smart, and do great in school and public, I am proud). But... My kiddos are now 14 and 12 (uff where has time gone?!),… Continue reading The Teenager Phase
It's my birthday, unfortunately now is just like any other day; nothing special happens on that day. Husband doesn't even turn my way. When we were dating, he would never forget, he would take me out to the best place, with flowers and presents. Now... I have to remind him (if I even feel like… Continue reading It’s my Birthday…
I was reading online about the Mid-Life Crisis on 40-year-old women. I'm a couple of weeks away of my birthday, and suddenly I was relating to what I was reading; is it true that when you get to this phase in life you come to a pause and reflection time, like reaching this stage in… Continue reading Mid-Life Crisis?
Shopping for beauty products that work (on me) is a pain. I'm not one to be into the beauty game, but I look endlessly and get it done because I wouldn't want something awful to use, my face and my skin will --hopefully--thank me someday. I really don't have a whole beauty system or regime, and I… Continue reading Two beauty product discoveries to die for…
Two kinds of people exist-- the organized¹ and the messy ones², and I'm the latter... I'm a messy mom and I need to change it, that is my goal. I can not give up. Since I can remember, growing up, that first idea was put in my head-- A place for everything and everything in its… Continue reading A Messy Mom
Although I'm so over Christmas and its not even here yet. Above all the hardships, I have kept my smile, and positivity for a good Christmas. God is good, and he never lets us down, he literally has our backs. He works in mysterious ways. May my family and friends who need a… Continue reading Christmas Prayer
Hello everyone. It has been a while since I do a blog post. I have been under the weather a bit. Mostly mentally and emotionally. I do everything in my power to avoid the blues, but as soon as Thanksgiving starts getting closer everything jumps to another level of stress and anguish. It's that time… Continue reading The holidays are hard
It was a morning like any other. As always, I was cranky. Scolded you because you were taking too long to eat breakfast, I screamed at you because you kept playing with the silverware and I reprimanded you because you're were chewing with your mouth open. You began to fuss and then spilled the milk… Continue reading A father’s mistake…
Open Letter to a husband: I've said it before, clearly I'm getting misunderstood. If you’re acting out, being grouchy and sour, negative and with a foul mood, and a complete asshole to the kids and myself—then take it somewhere else, and don't drag us to your ugliness. Do it by yourself and to yourself, because… Continue reading An open letter
I was managing my blog pretty well, at least I thought so, until a few weeks after my kids started school! I started substituting for the year, and also keeping up with my freelance job at home, and then now all the fun busy Marching Band activities for parents, to raise money for our kids has started too.… Continue reading Good Crazy Days
A fun way to show a glimpse of how my day might go...
What am I going to write rant about today? -sigh- My internet is just plain awful!!? Yes, I'm pitching my complaint to my internet service on this post (AT&T ??). One year and half , I've had to endure this horrendous, faulty and unreliable internet service. Techs after Techs coming to my home, on phone calls, or… Continue reading What Internet?
Hey everyone, I usually have a weekly post, todays' is different and days earlier. If you're are in the U.S you must know about the devastating effect Houston, TX is enduring right now because of Hurricane Harvey. If you are unaware you can read the latest here. Is heartbreaking to see, Texas is my state… Continue reading Special Post
Vegan -- a strict vegetarian, who refrains from using and eating animal products (such as meat, eggs, and dairy products). I have never given much thought to what vegan was, and to what it really meant to so many that practice it. Until a few days ago, when I watch this horrifying documentary, show casing the… Continue reading Vegan…?
Summer vacation came and now its almost gone--woohoo! It is awesome to be able to have the kids home and spend time with them (well maybe not that much). But, we get tired from their summer vacation?! right? I mean, I have active pre-teens running around the house, like caged rabid dogs, fighting and picking at… Continue reading I need a vacation, from the kids summer vacation!?
Why is it so scary to see my kids growing up on me, becoming teenagers? Is a fact, that times are simply different now, technology has brought many risks, and there's so much accessible information too. Yet, I'm sure my parents felt the same fears I do now, during their era there was no internet,… Continue reading Kids and technology
It was one of those days, ran errands fairly early, but my constant nightmare looked at me straight at the face as soon as I walked in the door later that morning. I probably looked like my ice cream fell off my cone... trying to get rid of mail is like trying to bag flies.… Continue reading Junk Mail
It National Avocado Day! So what better than this recipe, my favorite avocado
You don't have goals?, You had a college education for nothing?, You don't want to have success? Tough huh? Is hard to take that sitting down --that my decision to stay home makes me a woman without ambition, a conformist, and inferior.
I had to make a choice a couple of months ago. We all probably have seen hard times financially, work with a budget and such, I did. The struggles we went through, served us as lessons. Sadly, that meant to make changes. I started looking through the bill statements, I was shocked! Every single one of… Continue reading Cord Cutting
Why do some people have such big entitlement egos? What do they truly gain out of it?
--Bear with me, there's a little bit of spanglish in this post-- 🙂 Hola, I bet you anything, most of you are Coffee drinkers. Verdad? I was once one of you. But, coffee was not been good to my health, and "Boohoo!"I had to say adios. Oh, how I miss it! When I made the… Continue reading Coffee … Tea
They call me antisocial. Although, that is how everyone else perceives me, I don't consider giving myself that title. *** Me llaman antisocial. Aunque, asi es como los demas me perciben, no me considero con ese titulo.
I have been entertaining the idea of blogging for years now. To tell you the truth, I have started blogs, and weeks later deleted them. My confidence trashed, by those close to me, and the many amazingly written blogs I've read. --Yes, I know, how can I let anybody or anything get in the way… Continue reading I am a newbie Blogger
I just want to share this godsend moment I had on this day. I'll keep it short and sweet. I know most of us struggle day to day financially, paycheck to paycheck, I know I do. On this day, I just had a few dollars under my name. I needed a few items, for household… Continue reading Someone’s kindness
I can tell you right now, after over a decade of motherhood and a housewife, that it is overwhelming. Through all those years, that overwhelming feeling has come in seasons (so to speak), and right now seems to be one of those seasons.
