Happy Valentine’s Day!

It’s Valentine’s Day and I’m secluded at home. I went to the Dr. yesterday with both of my arm cover in a red, itchy rash. It’s a virus maybe I catch it at the school or at home. The Dr. says is airborne and the kids carry this virus as a dormant virus. I’m lucky it’s not contagious, however it’s uncomfortable. It hurts and it’s desperately itchy. The Dr. prescribes a steroid and Benadryl to stop the madness. Those are the exact words my Dr. says to me. It was actually pretty funny when she saw my arms and looking at me, she says, “what the heck?” I’ve to be out of school for the next two days in case it gets worse. So here I am at my home bored and thinking another Valentine Day at the house. We were planning to go to Olive Garden. Also, it makes me think it’s over 10 years we don’t have a romantic dinner at a restaurant.

I supposed I’ll prepare dinner and unfortunately, I can’t have any wine. That’s a bummer! My husband will bring flowers and my favorite chocolate candies.

To everyone who celebrate Valentine’s Day, the day of love and friendship, have a marvelous day with lots and lots of love. Remember, Valentine’s Day should be celebrated everyday and recognize the people who we love and care.


Happy Thanksgiving!

A quiet Sunday

A quiet Sunday morning. Everyone is sleeping, meanwhile I’m up too early because I can’t sleep. I’m enjoying a cup of coffee, sitting in my chair with Bruno sleeping close to me. Also, I’m thinking too much and that’s a problem.

This will be the last week my in laws will be here in North Dakota. They would be going back to Puerto Rico after spending two months with us and my husband is making this trip with them. Also, it will be my last week of vacation the new school year would begin on the 23rd.

My summer has been a fun one. I made a few trips, drink a few spritzers, and ate too much ice cream. I work in my flower garden, made a few changes outside in my backyard, and around the house. I did enjoy having all the grandkids together during the week of the wedding, and the weather has been great for BBQ’s, lake, and walking. However, my depression has been awful. I’m not taking any MEDs (doctor orders) and it’s harder to stay focused. When the depression takes over, I can’t stop crying, and I don’t feel safe.

I always thought at this stage of my life, it would be easier. My home is free of children, the house looks cleaner, it’s quiet, and I can do whatever I want. However, I feel lonely, and more depressed than when I’ve a full house and running around. At this point in my life I’ve to figure out what should I do next and how I can battle this depression.




My husband has been a wonderful supporter and he’s trying to keep myself distracted. Anyone who has been following my blog knows I’ve been suffering from depression. Since losing my father, my dog, and my girls moving back to their home I’ve been a mess. My daughter says everything happens at once. I know I can be strong, however lately I feel like a mess.

My husband is taking myself, my in-laws, and my grandson in a short vacation. We are in Rapid City, South Dakota. This is the perfect place to be with the family before I go back to work. We’ve already visited the Dinosaur Park, The Reptile Garden, Keystone town, Mount Rushmore, and Crazy Horse Monument.
Today, visiting Sturgis (78th motorcycle rally) and Deadwood. I’m working hard on myself to give everyone a smile and trying to relax.

In a positive note, I’ve a wonderful family who cares about me. I believe my husband has made the right call.

My son’s wedding

It has been a week since my son’s wedding. Every single detail of the wedding was perfectly done. Both sides of the family were emotional and my favorite part when they’re saying their vows. I can feel their love for each other.

My daughter arrives a few days before with the girls. I begin getting overwhelmed, however I kept my situation quiet. I didn’t want to shadow my son’s happiness. My daughter came with a mission of giving all of us facials, doing our lashes, nails, and hair. The first person in her list was the bride and then the groom giving making sure her little brother looks amazing. On Thursday the night before traveling to the bride’s hometown, my stress went over the roof. On Friday the rehearsal dinner went wonderful with a few lovely speeches and getting to know the rest of the bride family members.

The ceremony went beautiful and a few tears from both mothers were obvious. The moment of our dance was special, my son was nervous and said I will follow you mom. I was a proud mom and a tearful, too. Everyone had a blast.

I did have a few incidents with my anxiety and depression kicking a few hours earlier, however I made it through. I didn’t want him to notice it. The rest of the week has been a challenge isn’t until today I begin feeling better.

Prompt for #SoCS July 14/18~ Yes

Yes, I’m excited. My youngest son’s wedding it’s getting closer and closer. In eight days he’s tying the knots. Just last night my oldest son planned his bachelor party and a few of the guys drank too much including the groom. His getting nervous and I love how he’s asking advice from his grandfather. He’s so nervous and realizing today as his last Saturday as a single man. Yes, he’s counting the days.

Finally, I got two cute dresses for the wedding and I need to decide which one I’m wearing. I still have to buy my shoes and the purse. My daughter and the girls would be arriving on Tuesday. I can’t wait to spend time with them. For the rest of the week haircuts, coloring hair, lashes, and nails. It would be a busy week. I love watching my son with a smile in his face. Yes, I do.

No- stress

When I feel overwhelmed I take a little break from the computer and social media. I’ve been taking the time to read and color some of my books. I began reading a great book that I receive from a friend (thanks Linda), soon to finish and give my honest review.

My son’s wedding is approaching and my in-laws already arrived. My daughter and the girls will be here next week and I can’t wait to hear laughter and noise all over the house. I love that. However, I’m behind in a few stuffs for the wedding and my dress is one of them. I can’t find nothing I like and the wedding is in two weeks. I’m getting stressed out. When you live in a small town it’s difficult to find something you like. Maybe a trip to the city will be the best choice.
