Oh my Vimpat and Keppra

As you probably know, there are a few hurricanes lurking around, deciding where they want to attack. We are hoping and praying that nothing comes even close to Puerto Rico because, apart from the fact that no one over likes hurricanes, we are not ready for another one. We still have not recovered from Maria … Continue reading Oh my Vimpat and Keppra

ANOTHER blackout this week

Eight months after hurricane Maria, it seems like we can't go one full week without having a blackout. Sometimes it's just for a few hours and sometimes for a day or two and it just brings back unhealed wounds left over by hurricane Maria. We spent months without power, now after life seems to be … Continue reading ANOTHER blackout this week

Easter break

This week, being the week before Easter, I thought I would be able to rest and relax. I was hoping to go to the beach, the movies and maybe even have a lazy day just staying home all day. The week didn't turn out this way. Begging with having to go get blood drawn on … Continue reading Easter break

Driving Lessons- Day 6

As promised earlier today, I want to tell you about my sixth driving class, which took place this morning.  This class began from the moment the instructor picked me up as he let me take the wheel immediately. This was very exiting for me, although I had been waiting for this since he told me … Continue reading Driving Lessons- Day 6

Driving lessons- Day 4

This morning I went to Guaynabo for my fourth driving lesson. This was a vey last minute class, scheduled last night.

One step at a time 

After over a month the boxes my aunts sent my parents to help life after Hurricane Maria finally arrived. My mom was so happy with all the food, batteries, flashlights and solar chargers for cellphones and computers.  Mail was already being delivered but when they still hadn’t received any packages I thought they had been … Continue reading One step at a time 

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 

The day I made mofongo

Today my aunt was making us feel at home, like she has the whole week we've been staying with her, and she was going to make tostones since she bought plantains yesterday.
