Our first Thanksgiving

Happy belated Thanksgiving everybody! I hope you all had a nice day with your family, friends and/or loved ones. As I had mentioned in a previous post, my parents were hosting Thanksgiving, which meant I would have to host too and officially welcome people into my new apartment. I did everything I could to keep … Continue reading Our first Thanksgiving

I’m home!!!

I'm happy to say that right now I'm writing from the comfort of the living room in my new apartment! I moved in yesterday and as much as I wanted to tell everyone about it, I was too tired by the time I stopped trying to organize. The movers first went to our old apartment … Continue reading I’m home!!!

Getting tiles and more for my apartment

Today was a big day; first of all, today started the Round of 16 where France played Argentina and Uruguay was played Portugal in the World Cup, and second we were going shopping for tiles for my new apartment. The tiles were more important than the game so I had to put watching the games … Continue reading Getting tiles and more for my apartment

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

Christmas in Boston

I'll begin this post by sharing something I wrote last week but forgot to post. Yesterday I got on a plane again, this time coming to Boston to spend Christmas with Jose's sisters. This is a new experience because I don't think I have ever spent Christmas away from home but it will still be … Continue reading Christmas in Boston

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

I hope everyone got to spend the day with their loved ones and that all mothers got the thanks and love they deserve all year long. Not only … Continue reading Happy Day After Mother’s Day!
