It's been busy around here, my niece, her husband and my sister came from CR last Saturday at 1:30 am, so lil' old me went to pick her up (because i have the biggest car) it was so fun to see how they look after 3 years since the last time I saw my niece and 5 for my sister. My brother in law didn't come, (bummer) he is such a sweet heart and loves me like I was his daughter, did I tell you I have a niece my age, but the one that came Isabel is younger.
Anyway I took pictures, we were in the Bronx Saturday, and took plenty of them, but I the camera with my niece, forgot to get it, I'm expecting them to come tomorrow, when they get here I will show you all the pics.
Happy new year! What you got for Christmas? I got a Foo Fighters t-shirt, Love it.

ANYWAY Santa is coming and the fun part of all is you get to track him, yes NORAD (North America Aerospace Defense) tracks Santa and he is airborne as I type, last time I checked he was in Fiji; isn't that fun?.
You get to track Santa with your kids, I been doing this with Steven and Samantha for some time and you just have to see Sam's face when she get to see where Santa is; it's priceless,
Well, Merry Christmas to all, I hope you'll enjoy your evening, I'm staying home with the closest ones, no big dinner, we'll be watching "A Christmas Story" (is not Christmas without it) and tracking Santa, visit the link it have fun stuff.

- Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.
- Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.
- Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.
- Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!
- Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)
- That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.
- Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' . That will bring on a 'whatever').
- Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying F--- YOU!
- Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.

I'm Happy to say that Barack Obama is the 44th President of the United States, I'm happy not only because he won, but because I'm part of this historic moment, and I'm happy to be able to tell my children about this event, and when they ask me what I was doing when he got elected, I'll say I was watching it on TV then I blog it out for my friend.
Enjoy this historic time and record it for the reference of our children.

Friday we got our things together and decided to meet Walt in New York at my mom's house in the Bronx. If you didn't know Walt is been in a training in Delaware since the 28th of September, and he's been coming home every weekend since then.
I called TWO hours before the time, and I was told that I was going to get a call 5 minutes before 2:30 to let me know the car was on the way. At 2:35 I called back and I was told they will call me when a car was available, and the nasty dispatcher got the courage to argue with me that my train will leave at 3:12 pm and not at 2:48 that I had time. . . Long Story short I missed the train. . . .
Finally we made it to Fordham Road in the Bronx at 7:20 pm hungry and exhausted for the hard long trip which Samantha enjoyed to the fullness, we went to get some Spanish food and headed to grandma's house to eat.
Moral of the story: don't call the taxi cabs on Waterbury they will let you die before they arrive, because that's the only company in town, it's a monopoly, and they don't even have good service.

Well Sam got two, so she took home a coloring pencil, very cute.
I got the best of all the gifts they had there, I collect a dozen of thank yous , and few "You are so nice" I even got a hug, but the best of all was a thank you from Samantha:
Sam: Thank you mommy
Mom: For what?
Sam: Thank you for helping the kids get their toys. They were very happy. Thank you very much Mommy.
This just brought tears to my eyes, she was happy I helped.

After Sam's room we moved to my computer room, as you see we still have boxes to go Through, but at least the computer is running, and the fax machine works. I needed my computer room to be ready to go because we had a short time before the comcast guy came to set up the cables and stuff. (I know it's been almost a month but I'll get there someday)
My room was left for last because the vent that provides heat to this room was located under the bed, (or the bed was going to cover the vent) SO it had to be relocated to near the wall, that little work took few days before we got to set up the bed, but it's done, still needs work but at least I can move around. the bunch of pillows in the bed belong to the futon but this one still on pieces in the family room.
My living rooms has less boxes now, but I blame Walt for this, remember the vent in my room? well another reason for the relocation of the vent was because it ran in the middle of the wall that divided the kitchen and the living room, the two rooms looked very small so Walt open a huge window between them. The work finally was finished yesterday the 24th.
Maybe you can see the window I'm talking about at the left of the picture above.
My kitchen, a work in progress.

The new house is getting few things remodel like the family room will need a new carpet or a new flooring OR a VERY GOOD cleaning. I need to clean the laundry room from spiders, (that's a must) and the kitchen needs a little rearranging because my stove and fridge are too big for the area.
So we are busy, busy, busy, we are not going to paint, the budget got very small after paying car fees and taxes, so we are trying to find a short term solution so we can move tomorrow, so we are using a lot of sponges and water to clean walls and spots every where.
Today I'm at home waiting for the guy who is going to check the refrigerator because is not cooling (bummer). So what better thing to do that to blog while I can.
Samantha Started School yesterday, and Steven started on Wednesday so, with kids out of the house, I feel like I have SOOOOOO much time to do everything I have to, (thanks heavens for all day school)
I'm out I just wanted to update for the last time until I get connected again sometime next week.

That's not all Walt doesn't have more days off so he took today for the closing, and tomorrow for other personal issues he need to attend, that leave us with only two days vacation to clean, paint, move, unpack, settle the kids for school and "maybe" rest before work and school starts all over again. So yes I am (for lack of a "g" rated word) pissed off

I was there last year working with AVON, it was very hot in out tent but very nice and fresh outside it. WE HAVE TO GO i got many, plenty of goodies, and i bought very nice and cheap items like my all favorite Egyptian cotton sheets, for $20, I love them they get that soft every time you wash them, you will be a fool if you miss it. parking is $5 and entrance as you can see will be free.
They are not paying me for this, I just want to spreed the news. I really enjoy it last year and regret I didn't have more time to enjoy the place.
I'll be going very early in the morning, believe me it's the best time right about noon things are getting busy, I'm planning on seeing everything and getting a sample of everything. I'm bringing a backpack for all. If you can't print this coupon send me a note I'll e-mail it to you. and since it is Women's Expo husbands are allowed for caring bags or watching kids. See you all there.

Callings are doing great and diet not so much. I'm packing and it is very hard when you realize how much junk you had accumulated over the years. I'm selling everything I have, but I'm over with e-bay and graigslist I'm just OVER is not selling and I need the dough to move.
I'm frustrated because every day is a new issue we have to conquer with the loan, a new paper that doesn't match or a new document they can't find, don't get me wrong, I have faith that things are going to work out well, it's just sooooo much for little old me to handle while packing. And now we may not close by the 15th as planned....
So that's what's up with us as we prepare to start all over again in a home mildew free and with no termites.

"Bring ye all the tithes
