Happy Mother’s Day

Today I want to take the chance to, once again, thank my mom for always being there for us (my brother and me), through the good and the bad and never, ever letting us down. We disagree sometimes, she gets nervous when I drive, but some people don't even want to get in the car … Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day

Tips for the holidays

The best part of the holiday season is, for many of us, spending time with our family and friends. This time full of parties and other gatherings with friends and family may be difficult for TBI survivors, I mean so many people and so much noise can get a little difficult, at least for me. … Continue reading Tips for the holidays

We are unstoppable 

So look at what I found today:  I think it was just sitting around in that Hobby Lobby waiting for me to find it and of course I had to have it. The only thing better than that was finding another one that said María but that's asking for too much.  Finding that just made … Continue reading We are unstoppable 

Praying for my Puerto Rico

With a broken heart I write to you tonight away from home, from my beloved Puerto Rico. My aunts bought me a ticket to the states and I really didn't feel anything from leaving, it just felt like another trip with my family. It does not feel that way anymore, I can't be more thankful … Continue reading Praying for my Puerto Rico

Hurricane María 

Everyone on Puerto Rico is working hard to prepare for María and so are we. Everything is ready to go to my brother's house. Just like I did for Irma, I will be Tweeting in real time for as long as I have wi-fi.  Stay tuned to @unstoppablemar1 to see how we're dealing with this … Continue reading Hurricane María 

Always be my happy, playful puppies

My puppies, who are close to being 7 months old are growing up too fast. Last week we took them to the Humane Society to be sterilized. I wanted to be with them when we left them there for their appointment but I was told it would be better if I stayed home, I don't … Continue reading Always be my happy, playful puppies

“There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face. “

I feel like it's been forever since I last told you about my puppies. They have grown so much I can't believe they're not even six month's old yet, but they will be soon. They are still adorable and people fall in love with them because they are so playful and always want to say … Continue reading “There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face. “

Happy Valentine’s Day

First of all, Happy Valentine's Day!  Did you know Valentine's day is not just for people in love? Yes it's also for friends and family, but St. Valentine is also the patron saint of epilepsy. There are a few theories as to why he is the saint of epilepsy, such as the German word for … Continue reading Happy Valentine’s Day

I’m never letting go again

Today, we took our dogs for their daily walk, but we took a different route. Instead of starting next to the avenue, like we usually do,  we decided to walk next to the highway which is one street down from the avenue. As we were walking we realized that the sidewalk down there is not … Continue reading I’m never letting go again

She has a backyard where my dogs could run around, so we brought them with us (after asking her if we could) for lunch . Later my brother brought Robin and Lego, his two dogs. We had four … Continue reading Three Kings Day with my puppies 

My opinion on Jackie

Well, first of all I want to wish my older brother a very happy birthday. (You still haven't said anything about your gift. I'm waiting. Did you like it???) I should also mention that January 3 was also my late great grandfather's birthday, who would have been 110 years old today. I wish I could … Continue reading My opinion on Jackie
