Praying for my family

Since Tuesday I don’t hear anything from my family in Puerto Rico. It was the last day I talked to my in-laws and my sister and my brother posted in social media a prayer for Puerto Rico. That was the last time I heard from all of them.

Two weeks ago, hurricane Irma caused a few damages affecting a low percentage of the island. For a few days they lost power and some sector didn’t have any water. However, this time Hurricane Maria hit from the center and the entire island has no power, no phone connection, they’re running out of water, and food.

Imagine Puerto Rico has approximated 3.5 million people and everyone in one way or another has been affected. Watching the TV News and looking at the destruction has been hard. Yesterday, New York send a few planes and ships with supplies.

I’m scared for their safety and wondered how much destruction this hurricane caused. What happened if they get sick and need attention? My in-laws are people in the eighties and my sister just have a surgery two weeks ago. Everyone who has family or friends in the island they have been in social media waiting to hear some News.

I’m sick into my stomach thinking all the difficulties they are going through. The frustration of not knowing from our loves ones it’s a nightmare. I’m hoping we can get more info as the days passed. I will keep trying to call every single phone number until one of them answers. I’m praying for my family and friends to be safe.

Coloring books

I’ve been obsessed with coloring books for adults ever since my grandkids gave me one for Christmas last year. I can spend hours coloring one page. I love the mix and match colors and it can take me a few hours to finish one page. I’m not kidding, last night I finished a page I started on Thursday night. My collections of coloring pens, markers, and pencils is growing too fast. Plus, I’ve a total of ten books. My next purchase will be the Harry Potter or Supernatural. I find coloring very entertaining, relaxing, and it makes me feel stressed free.

Yesterday when I was in Pinterest and found a few pins from other people coloring. I immediately noticed they look like a professional did it. The use of the colors was brilliant. I begin to compare the ones I’ve made and instead of feeling great for my work of art I felt the opposite. I thought I wasn’t talented enough and I should give my books away. I want my pages to look as beautiful like theirs.

I’ll never understand why I’m so hard on myself. The books supposed to be for fun, feel relaxed, and stressed free. A few minutes later I find the situation a little silly and I went back to my coloring books. My pages would not look like a Picasso, but they are mine. I’m working on a whale from my Ocean Lost coloring book and it’s going to be a pretty one.

Disobey

I remember my mom telling me if I disobey her or my dad they would be consequences. Also, I do remember those consequences wasn’t too pleasant. Then I become a mother raising my children in the same way I was raised. How many times my children or my grandkids would break a few of those rules.

The other day my granddaughter who just turn 13 doesn’t want to follow a simple house rule. She’s at that stage of her life besides being moody where she feels our rules are silly. When she feels she wants to be heard then she disobeyed to make her point.

I will see it at work when a student to make a point they break one of the school rules. Also, we have the ones who doesn’t care no matter the consequences.

When my grandkids disobey it brings back a few memories of myself and my daughter at their age. That’s what I call Karma.

I’ve been a little stress ever since I went back to work. I’ve been disorganized therefore I’m working on it. It takes time to get into a routine, especially when I’ve to wake up too early. Between working and taking care of my dad, it looks I need more than 24 hours a day. I expect by the end of the day be done with my food orders and my paperwork.

It’s a holiday weekend and I want to relax and watch hallmark mystery movies. Also, I can continue reading my cozy mystery book. Yesterday I got a few books from Barnes and Nobles.
