No New Friends

Let me tell you about the friends I got! I can really count them on my hands. These are the woman that I most important to me... This is not in any order and I didn't put their real names because the nicknames I gave them are special...

1. Tiner Tot- She is relation... More like a sister. She helped raise me even though she isn't much older than me. She is a Super Woman to me! An inspiration to me. She is selfless and always available. I enjoy talking to her EVERY day. (Known her my whole life)

2. Cathy (Pink n Blue)- I have known her since 5th grade. We evolved together. From sharing lockers and doing hair to clubbing and then to motherhood. I can call her and tell her anything... And not feel bad. She likes her space and I don't mind. (Going on 20 years)

3. Shak- This lady was a co-worker. Everyone expected us to hate each other since we were both so strong minded... But the opposite happened. I spent a lot of time with her in Iraq after work. I haven't seen her in a long time but I sure do miss her and she still holds the title! (Almost 10 years)

4. Moni-  met her on the internet... Not in a freaky way but I was looking to lease an apartment at the complex she worked for. Things fell into place and we became instant friends. (7 years)

5. Yanny- We met when we were pregnant. She was having a boy and I was having Mimi. We were due around the same time. Her brother was my next door neighbor. I talk to her weekly and when we get together, time just flies. I love spending time with her. She is well versed in the Bible and cooking. (10 years)

6. Gabba- She is my newest addition... She is real, she is raw... She is loyal. I like that we are honest with each other. I do not judge her and she doesn't judge me. I can be myself and say crazy things without thinking. I like that.
(Our friendship is 3 years new)

7. My Demanding Dominican!- I used to work with her and do her hair. We always ended up at the same places. It is funny because we are a lot alike but so much different. I think I get to see a side of her that not many other people get to see. She rattles my cage and I rattle hers too. I give it to her straight and she does the same for me. I like that. (6 years)

Now- Understand that none of my friends live too close... So what to do? How do you find quality friends in your 30's? I am still feeling my way around the idea. I will continue trying to figure it out.

Seems like more and more Gustavo is becoming my MVP... He is getting better at being my husband and the man that I need him to be. That is only making me love him again. I guess our life has been a novela but thankfully it's starting to get to the good parts.

Yes, I am back

    Gustavo and I flew home to close on the house! YAY! We did a lot of painting… Almost every room has a color! I think that we accomplished a lot in a small amount of time. A lot of window blinds were put up as well! I think that I am a pro with the drill now.

    We are back home… And happier then ever. We were stuck with a lot of delayed and cancelled flights due to the big winter storm that was happening in the North-East coast. That was a LONG 36 hours! I tell you that!

    I honestly didn't want to leave! I found that being home was comfortable! Our area had EVERYTHING… So close. The drivers were so friendly. Strangely enough, We have Arab neighbors! They were very friendly. The neighborhood was very diverse. I loved that! I am sure that the kids will have plenty of people to play with there.

    My home town is maybe an hour and a half away. I didn't make it to visit as I was very busy running around, plus… People really wanted to see the kids, and since we didn't bring them… They would have been disappointed. My cousin Stephanne and her daughter Danielle did come to visit us though and I was SO happy to see them!!! 

    I have two close friends that live in the area and Gustavo also has people he knows there… So… I think that we will be comfortable on the friend avenue as well. It was cool to just pick up the phone and be able to call my Bestie without thinking about the time difference!

    A lot of people keep asking when we will be home for good. I would love to be able to answer that… I just can't. I want to keep our family together and if living in Kuwait is how it has to happen then… We will be in Kuwait! :)

    It is so close to Christmas and it doesn't really feel like it. I am ready for the NEW YEAR! 

    NEW Beginnings! I am ready to put 2013 in my REAR VIEW mirror as it has been the WORST year of my life!!! My focus this coming year is my FAMILY! That is all!

Wait for it...


Waiting… Waiting… Waiting… Waiting…

I was in the U.S. Army- I know all about HURRY up… and WAIT game.
This is absolutely NERVE WRECKING!

Waiting for the NEXT STEP.
My next step is my PERIOD. My monthly visitor, Aunt Flow!!!
All my life I hated getting my period… And now I am actually praying it will come on ALREADY!!!

I have been tracking my period for about a year now! I LOVE this APP!
So now I am waiting and I have 8 days per my TRACKER! 
Lil flowers pop up when you are fertile and you can tell what day you are ovulating as well! Why spend money on too many Ovulation Detectors... Just get the APP!
 


 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
It tracks the past periods... and let's you know when the next one should be coming! This App is great! Things like this make the BOARDER LINE OCD person completely HAPPY!!!

I went and got my mail... And then started dancing in the parking lot when I saw this BOX!!!

 Isn't this so beautiful!?
I cannot wait to write in this!!! I want to fill it with so many memories!

Maybe it will be like "The Notebook"
I love you! Thank you!

I wanted to add the necklace to this post... It came on my birthday! Good timing!
