Freezing Bad Breath

I gave G some water with ice and after taking a sip, he told me he knew how to freeze bad breath.


This. I wanted to hear.  So ... I asked.

He said ... "easy ... you just drink some really cold water and then you hold your breath in for like, a second, and then you open your mouth and let the frozen bad breath go bye bye"

I'm going to have to try that sometime.

I am trying to stay away from negativity.

Trying being the key word as I am my own worst enemy.

Most if not all of the negativity comes from the inside ...

... negative self-talk ...

... negative self-image ...

... dwelling on the past ... on the what if's ...

So yeah ... am trying to stay away ...

I want to re-train myself ... is not an option ...

I have to treat myself better.

Is it me ... or do others out there in cyberspace are like me?

Would they admit it?

Little School

So.... I had G in a summer camp that was held at his school for pretty much the month of June ... a few things happened and I decided to check in the day care where he used to go to which is literally right across from the building where I work at.

G calls it his "little school" and this week he started there ... so far he has only been there literally 3 days and he L.O.V.E.S. it!  I am sooooooo glad I decided to move him there, it's a bit more than what I was paying but really, there is no price for peace of mind.  He is with people that know him and have cared for him since he was 3 years old.

When I went to pick him up this afternoon he said - "mami, what if the little school was like really close to us like a family?" ... and I said "well papi, they ARE like a family, they cared for you since you were 3 years old" .... and he goes "really? no wonder I love them so much"

Ohhhh how I love that boy!

Today I asked G to find my phone.

"Mami, you have to retrace your steps, ok?"

I had to ask him again what he said 'cause he sounded so darn cute ... and bossy too!



For whatever reason, I was pretty distant this weekend from my family.

Family meaning my sis and my dad.

I didn't call.  I didn't ask anyone to come over.

I guess sometimes that needs to be done.

Why then, if I know there is nothing wrong with just keeping to myself, do I feel guilty about it?

Must be a rican thing.

I miss her

Today of all days ... I miss her 

I miss my mom

I feel the bond between my sis and I dissolving and I can't stop it

I guess my mom was the glue that held us together

I miss you ma'

G has this new habit that is getting on my nerves.

He is correcting my English.

Momma is not laughing.

how real can someone be?

Lately I have stopped myself several times from writing on this blog.

I mean do I really want 'this' or 'that' to be out there on the net?

I read other blogs and my reaction is like 'wow' ... is this really how this person lives?

In my case, for example, I really can't vent about work - I could lose my job.

And um, 'til further notice, I need that gig. Only been there like what, 17 years?

Then there is Facebook. And Twitter.

I honestly don't like to put how I really feel or what is really going on with me on Facebook.

Too many chismosos in there. Including family.

They don't need any more material for their lenguas viperinas.

If anyone wants to really hear me complain - not that I do it THAT often - then they would have to follow me on Twitter. Kinda glad the familia is not on Twitter. LOL

It is only on Twitter where I post links to my blogs.

And now that I am playing with this application called Foursquare, it is only on Twitter where I plan to send updates to.

I feel that I need to be more real in here ... write more about what is going on with me ... dunno, we'll see ...
