Local Draft

That is what my WP is full with. I have so many excuses as to why I haven’t been blogging, my main one being… Writer’s block, I start typing and blank. 

I have tons of things I can write about. I can log my weight loss, which really…I haven’t been losing because I’ve been stuffing my face and not exercising. I’m okay with it. Not complaining. 

I can write about the things I get rid of. Seriously, my house is a black whole. I get rid of a million things to make space, and my sweet husband brings a chair that covers half the house. But, I always forget to take photos, why? Because I don’t want to live with my phone in my hand. 

I can write about the food I’ve been making.. I made some awesome bruschetta and hummus with my new food processor that my wonderful guy got me for Christmas. But like I said, phone on hand.. Not lately. 

I can’t forget to mention that I keep just losing my phone for days on end. Why? Because I want freedom. I want to be beep free. Sometimes, I’d like a land line for old times sake. 

I can write about my children, but really, I’m just tired, comatose, exhausted. 

It’s all good though. Is 2017 now… HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE… I’m going to sleep. Sweet Dreams.

A Bit of This and That

I worked on numbers, sight words and days of the week with my boys before they finally agreed to eat breakfast. I cleaned the refrigerator and the kitchen and forced the kids to go play outside on this beautiful day. “No toys” I said, I wanted then to use their imaginations.

While they played, I created part of the curriculum I will be following this year since I am homeschooling officially. I looked up what the state retirements are and started to find fun things to do.

In and out the boys came to asking for water, to have a snack, needed a boo boo kissed.

Something was bugging me about the short story I submitted since before I submitted it. It seemed short for a 1000 words. I couldn’t figure out why, the word counter said over 1000, so I cut the story. Then I figured out what happened…. Ready? It was over 1000 characters, not words… Lol. Typical me! So…. Yeah…  Talk about a short story, lol.

So after my brilliant realization my babe, who did not get my story at all (go figure), got home from work. We had a couple of beers, fired up the grill and made dinner.


Yes, my hamburger was half gone. So yummy and no burger bun for me. This tasty hamburger was seasoned with my special adobo, grilled over charcoal, topped with grilled onion and mushrooms, super spicy jalapeño, with mayonnaise, ketchup and mustard. Absolutely delish with a side of green and Mexican beer.

After stuffing our faces, we all took showers, watched a documentary that everyone fell asleep watching except me because I am writing. But I am going to be fine for now. I am exhausted. I bid you adieu!

Look at this Blonde!

So she is Blonde, she is funny and she wants to write a bestseller. She is a high five extraordinaire and my international blogging bff from across the pond (drum roll please!) She is BLONDEUSK!!!

I only try read her blog posts when I am alone. Only because I want to give her posts my undivided attention. This has caused me to shamelessly lock myself in the bathroom and calling “private time” on numerous occasions.

I must have my daily dose of funny and entertainment. Whether she has two mannequin heads argue about which is better or whether she is capable of letting go of an expensive looking red balloon, you will find yourself asking for more.

My favorite, is the short story called “Enid” which was featured in University Creativityinc14 Magazine. This story is about a serial killer who preys for its victims at a diner. Ooh, the twist…the twist…

Just check out how awesome she is! Seriously, click here…NOW!☺

Our Dining Room!

So, I figured I would show you where we put the bookcase which now hold our dishes.


Welcome to my colorful dining room. Because I am a girl from the Caribbean, I demand that my home is lively with colors.

We have been rearranging the house over and over trying to figure this out. We knocked down arches and walls. This room in particular started as a living room, but now it s our dining room.

We have a gift certificate for an interior designer… But I think I rather know what people from WordPress have to say.

Until Next Time,

What do you think?

Dentists, Cleaning and Sweets! Oh My!

I went to the dentist at 9am to get a cavity filled…to find out I needed a root canal, work on a crown on top of the cavity. After I nearly hyperventilated, they told me they could knock me out for $976 that I would have to pay out of pocket. Luckily, I can finance that. Surprise, surprise! I scheduled my appointment, but it ruined my day.

Our friend needed help moving things out of his ex wife’s garage. This makes me nervous because people like to give is things and I am trying to get rid of things.

Well, he was giving us a book shelf that he insisted will fit in our home.


Pretty, it does fit, but it is very big. We appreciate it! And of course, we were happy to help a friend. In helping our friend, we also inherited two boxes of toys, a telescope (cool, I always wanted one), shirts and hats, winter boots(which we got rid of my old ones), and a drum set.

Well, I spent a quite amount of time cleaning yesterday, so having all of that stuff on what was my clean foyer put me in a crankier mood.  I did a lot of pacing and my husband kindly gave me a shot of tequila (so gross, but surprisingly effective).

I don’t care, I am tired of doing things I need to do like clean so I left the mess, sat in the computer and watched Wrestlemania 31! I am so happy Undertaker won, same with Daniel Bryan and John Cena. I wished Brock Lesnar would quit (he doesn’t seem like a nice person at all) even out of the ring, but he lost which is satisfaction to me.

I made organic brownies from scratch and made Sundays! And then passed out and slept wonderfully!


Brownie, French Vanilla Ice cream, chocolate sauce, whipped cream and sprinkles!

Until Next Time My Friend,

End the nights sweetly, with hugs and kisses!

Rest In Peace


I saw that one of my old classmates passed away. I don’t remember much of him other than I had a crush on him in 5th grade. I don’t even remember if we went to high school together. But in my head, we are just all a bunch of kids that went to school together.

I do know that it makes me sad that he died. He was married and was a father.

His family is in my prayers! May he rest in peace.

Until Next Time My Friend,

A moment of silence for Josh Hakes!

Hilton Head!!! Day 3

Pool, beach, pool again… Very pleasant day! But what really was really beautiful was that my big guy asked to spend some time alone with me.

We went to the jacuzzi tub. There, he told me about how much he loves special time with me and that we should do it more. I kissed every part of his face telling him how much I love him and would love to have more special days.

Then we watched TV cuddling on the bed. It was so special. That is my favorite time of the day.

Until Next Time My Friend,

What is something special you have done with your baby?

Hilton Head!!! Day 2


Here I am in my paleness starting the day at the beach. Very exciting day! First off, if you want to see me squeal like a teenager at a Justin Bierber concert. All you have to do is say dolphin.
That is exactly what happened. And there they were swimming and there I was squealing with excitement. I tried to photograph them, but no luck. But that’s okay, it was so cool to see them. Then, as the tide got lower, I found these.


Tons of baby clams! The kids got a real kick out of watching them bury themselves back in the sand. And then, we saw a baby stingray! Cutest thing ever. Then we found this…


A stone crab. We named it Rosie Michael since we didn’t know what it was and then watched him for a while.
So far, it’s been an awesome trip! A little sun burn, buy it’s all good. Look at these faces.



Until next time my friend,

I wonder if we’ll see dolphins again…

Hilton Head!!! Day 1

I do not even know how I am doing this.I should be in a coma. After 20 hours of driving, bathroom breaks, child mental breaks and mental breaks off my own, we finally made it!


This is me barely conscious in our vroom, vroom van after what felt like an eternity of driving.


Here are my boys at one of our breaks.


My boys love me! They always pick flowers for me. After unpacking, my big guy feel right on his face causing a bloody nose and now has a fat lip. After all of the exhaustion. It all of for this moment.


The moment when my boys run to the ocean and laugh because it is most definitely their favorite place in the world.

After some ocean time, they went swimming in the pool while I made shrimp salad, yum! We ate, I cleaned up and now I am writing here. Good day, but tomorrow will be better.

Until Next Time My Friend,

Where is your favorite vacation/holiday spot?
