Relaxing Weekend

For a change this weekend was super relaxing. I have not come back to work and felt this refreshed in quite some time. Not even 3 day weekends have felt this good. Saturday we had some family and friends over to play some cards, we played some poker and had a good time… even though next time we will not clean the same day of the party, both Cielo and I were just exhausted by the time the people started showing up, but it was fun still.

Sunday we went to a bridal expo. While it was not as big as I had imagined, it was a nice size and the exhibitor were either nice or amusing. We talked to a lot of them and got some good leads as to what we are going to do for the wedding. We have a place for the tuxes now and ideas for a videographer. Things are starting to take shape and it is really exciting. We are going to try a medieval kind of theme for the wedding, so if you have any ideas of how to make that happen chime in. I also got some money off the tuxedo rentals by entering the money grabbing air thing… We will upload the pics latter on Pictures uploaded for your laughing pleasure.

What to do?

A couple of weeks ago The girl I was dating at the time and I were faced with the difficult decision of whether to get involved with a family situation where we would have to tell a teenager’s parents about their kids behavior. Until today and reading Michael’s post about his dilemma on a similar situation I had forgotten completely that I was faced with this situation before.

What a difference a month makes

About a month ago I was feeling down, you can read that on this post, not quite depressed but was getting there quick. The holidays were coming and all I wanted to do was run down to Colombia to be away from it all. I did not have a reason to stay here for Christmas, not even my family who I dearly love.

Then you get wrapped up in something that is not real and make some stupid decisions that cost a lot. At least I now have my sanity and dignity.

For a Deaf Son

I have mentioned my interest on ASL from the beginning of the blog. Then I started taking the class. It is almost coming to an end. I have now completed one of the biggest assignments for this class, which was a reaction paper to the movie. I also mentioned the movie here on the blog, that caused a little bit of controversy. I will now post my paper and feel free to comment on my opinions, but please inform you in the subject before making any harsh remarks. This time they will not be tolerated.

Thanksgiving Post

Sometimes I don’t even remember that it has not yet been a full year since I started this blog. I have been blogging in one way for a long time, my friends can be a testament to the fact that when I write an e-mail it tends to be a little lengthy. Even when I talk, I tend to just go on and on and on… But they love me anyways and put up with the length of my communications.

I used to send a Christmas email as well as a New Years one recounting several events that took place during the year. I wonder if anyone still has one of those in their inbox… if you do send it to me. I don’t think I ever did a thanksgiving email but I want to take an opportunity to express how thankful I am.

First I want to thank God. God has been good to me this year, opening my eyes to a lot of my mistakes. Guiding me through very difficult times and giving me hope for the future. God also did something wonderful by putting my girlfriend in my path. Without her a lot of the happiness I have now would not be here.

I am very thankful for my best friend Bogi. I could not have had a better friend in the difficult times that I faced this year. For keeping me centered and going when I needed it most and also standing behind every decision wrong or right. For being a friend that I know has my back.

To the coworkers that became my friends, something I thought I would never find again. Thank you, it was rough being in a new place, but I now feel home.

To my online friends, wow what would I have done without you guys… you keep me thinking that what I write is interesting enough to read, and have debated with me on levels that opened up my view to new ideas and ways of thinking. Thanks for all the support.
