May 17... another birthday!!!! Today didn't begin like any other birthday, at least not any I've had.

When my neurologist gave me permission to drive he said nothing about cooking, but I figured if I can drive I can also cook in the oven and the stove instead of the microwave and toaster oven. I was already, before I had permission, using the stove for small stuff but never had the nerve … Continue reading Now I’m driving AND cooking!!!
Unstoppable María is two years old today! Can you beleive it? I still can't believe it, really, sometimes I think I started this last year, because I have had so much fun writing.

Don't we all have one of those days once in a while? A day when you feel like you're not all there, like you should have just kept sleeping or you just woke up on the wrong side of the bed? I had one of those yesterday and I don't know why; I got enough … Continue reading Absent-mindedness
