I’ve been thinking…

My family seems to worry every time I say something that starts with the phrase “so, I’ve been thinking...” This phrase is sometimes followed by something random I’ve been wondering about that really shouldn’t worry anybody; it’s just a question. Then there are the times that I’ve come up with a change I want to … Continue reading I’ve been thinking…

We saw … Continue reading iHeart Living-room Concert

Social distancing: Day 1

As of last night, Puerto Rico is in quarantine and will be for at least two weeks. The governor had to take these drastic measures to ensure the safety of the island and although this will be tough on our already weak economy, it has to be done for the safety of the Puerto Rican … Continue reading Social distancing: Day 1

I decided Christmas starts now

I have great news, I finished Christmas decorating in my house! This year I got the Christmas spirit very early on; I wanted to start decorating on November 1st, but I decided to wait a little, at least till the middle of the month. On Wednesday I just could't take it anymore and I took … Continue reading I decided Christmas starts now

More housework

I think we all have that one thing in our house that we need to do, but we just never get around to doing it. For some it's fixing a window or a door, for others it's fixing a fan or changing a door handle. It's always something that we know we have to do … Continue reading More housework

My new kitchen island

This weekend I had a new project for my apartment. I didn't think anyone would be in the mood to help me set it up on Saturday night when I brought the kitchen island home, but my stepdad, who I won't name because he doesn't want me to talk about him on my blog, was … Continue reading My new kitchen island

One year in my apartment

It has officially been one year since I moved into my own apartment. Well, owned by my parents right next to their house, but it's mine. This is the first time I have a kitchen all to myself and no, I haven't set anything on fire, at least not yet. I think that's a very … Continue reading One year in my apartment

A new Puerto Rico

Yesterday was another historic day for Puerto Rico. We still haven't gotten the governor to resign but Puerto Ricans have come together like never before, to get him out of here. There have been protests for about 10 days straight, since the nasty chat conversation was first leaked. These protests have not just been held … Continue reading A new Puerto Rico

When the smoke detector goes off

I came home from work very hungry and wanted to cook something quickly, so I decided to go with shrimp and french fries. I usually just put these in the oven and toaster oven and they're done in less than 20 minutes; it's very easy and that's just what I wanted. The only problem was … Continue reading When the smoke detector goes off

Finally got my entertainment center!

Last weekend I found one of the missing pieces for my apartment, the entertainment center. I wasn't really looking for it so desperately because I didn't know what I wanted and my TV was already hanging on the wall, but I did need somewhere to put the DVD and the cable connection. So I found … Continue reading Finally got my entertainment center!

We’re still decorating

A few weeks ago, during a trip to Home Depot, we bought the kitchen cabinet handles for my kitchen. Between our busy life during the week and one thing or another during weekends, we really didn't have time to put them on the doors. I did have time to unscrew a door and screw it … Continue reading We’re still decorating

My dining room table!

Since I last told you about my apartment, I had just painted my bathroom door. I'm not sure but I think that was the last big thing I had done, besides cleaning. It was the last thing until yesterday when I finally got a dining room table! It's not that big, which is perfect because … Continue reading My dining room table!

Time to paint

The day finally came, started painting the apartment today. We began in my room, but before that we had to cover any holes on the walls with putty, which I had started, but somehow there were still some left. When we were done with that, we each had a different chore to paint the room … Continue reading Time to paint
