Saturday while running around with Merari, we came across a favorite little place called Pollo Campero. That was the spot to be while in Guatemala on a missions trip. That's right when it was announced we were heading out on the town that meant Pollo Campero time. Seriously it beats our KFC here in the states. At last it has landed here in Miami of course only in Calle Ocho area, but I'll take it. Anyone who wants to join in on some good eating, just call me up.

- We're back to bubbling in our vote. Problem: I know that some individuals will check mark the vote or "X" the spot.
- We're adding more paper into the mix. Problem: What happened to our city becoming green.
- The is an added process/step in order to vote. Problem: each machine cost thousands of dollars for a wasted system.
- In order to make a correction you must get a new ballot. Problem: First that means wasting more paper and second there was nothing wrong with the finger touch system we used before. You were able to preview your vote on the screen and correct the mistake before pushing the big red vote button.
- The last step is scanning your bubbled ballot. Problem: You have to type in a code given (extra step) then wait for the machine to say that everything is ok. If not you can either leave it as is or get a new ballot thus more paper.

The Alves-Daily Family and the De Armas Family experienced Slava's Snow Show this past weekend. My mother happened to catch a glimpse of it on on Globo and thought it would be neat if both our families went to it. So we all ventured out expecting something along the lines of Cirque du Soleil, but instead we got something completely different. The show is a mix of clowns focusing on pantomime, crowd involvement, and human reaction. It is a must see event, and experience unlike no other. Rey could not stop laughing at the simplicities of clowns falling out of a chair. Slava has a way of triggering your inner childhood yet adding a feel modernness.

Oddly enough my first adventure of the summer came as a surprise to me, I was a personal shopper. I got a phone call from a good friend asking for help in his shopping extravaganza. Basically, he needed a female's opinion and expertise might I add in order to complete his so called mission...dressing 101. I was more than happy to oblige him since I was doing absolutely NOTHING and was looking for new and exciting things to accomplish this summer. Apparently I can cross this one off my list, personal shopper for one-check. The best part was I completely impressed myself with my talent not to mention my lovely client as well. We were finished within an hour or so. I managed to critique quickly, scour rapidly, and rack up amazing sales. I must say I would hire myself..minor detail I already do that regularly. So if anyone would like to embark on another adventure with me this summer let me know I have plenty to accomplish, just not quite sure what that exactly is just yet.

Last night I went to go see my first Opera entitled La Boheme. You see I have always loved the arts since I was a child, and lately I've been making it a point to soak up as much of it as I can. In the past few weeks I've visited, plays, musicals, museums, dance performances, art show, and now an opera.

Funny thing happened today...ok maybe not so funny. I was playing soccer at work and while demonstrating a specific move I came down on my left ankle. Of course my ankle didn't feel like supporting me yet again, so it decided to roll under and produce a loud "pop" noise. You see my left ankle and I have been through torn ligaments, several sprains, and bruises on upon bruises. I'm guessing my ankle has had absolutely enough and just decided not come to my rescue. (I think its mad at me....hence the throbbing pain and swelling) Thankfully a co-worker of mine drove me to the hospital to get an x-ray and to see the doctor. Diagnosis: Sever sprain, I'm in an air cast and on crutches. Good news I'm out for two days, Bad news I have no clue what I'm going to do with myself. I go back to see another doctor on Thursday to asses the severity of the situation. Hopefully, my ankle and I will have made an amends by then and I will be cleared to work.

It's official, there is less than 70 days until my summer vacation kicks off. I've been toying with some ideas of what to do this summer, here's what I got thus far:

This week's small group study got me thinking about life’s fears that hinder our ability to live out God’s plan for our lives. The question that still lingers in my mind is: Do you chase fear or does fear chase you?
In my life fear and I are always playing a game of tag you’re it. Just when I think that I’ve finally tagged fear and won, it has a funny way of tagging me right back. Unfortunately, it's much quicker than I am. I tend to fear the typical things such as death, failure, disappointment etc.
The reason I believe that fear and I continually play this chasing game is simple: I ALLOW IT! I tend to sulk in my misfortunes, problems, and struggles. Satan constantly wants us to be reminded of our failures time and time again. If we continually focus on the negative then its one less time we are focusing our eyes on the Lord. A small victory for Satan that can potentially lead to landslide sweep.
God puts is simply for us GRACE. He has provided for those of us who have accepted his amazing gift of grace, forgiveness, and salvation.
So what can we do to officially tag out fear?
Scripture is there for a reason, applying it to your life tends to be the difficult part. For example, Romans 12:2 keeps appearing regularly lately and yet I constantly struggle with sulking.
“Do not conform any longer to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Rm 12:2)
The Lord has many blessings and opportunities for our lives, its up to us to accept them. However, how can we accept them if we are constantly dwelling on the negative and allowing fear to win our battles.
I’ll end with this James 4:7;
“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

About a month or so ago my lovely closet decided to give out on me. After putting it off for some time I finally decided that this weekend was it. Time to take on my closet. My weekend pretty much looked liked this:

Went to the county dump to get rid of the old closet parts
Began assembling the closet

Drilled countless holes (in which one went through the living room wall..will fix later)
Started to install the closet
Still havent eaten anything its now 6:30 pm
Quickly took a shower
Went to Artie's 50th Birthday party (finally ate)

The Five Love LanguagesMy primary love language is probably

Complete set of results
|Words of Affirmation:||7|
|Acts of Service:||3|
InformationUnhappiness in relationships, according to Dr. Gary Chapman, is often due to the fact that we speak different love languages. Sometimes we don't understand our partner's requirements, or even our own. We all have a "love tank" that needs to be filled in order for us to express love to others, but there are different means by which our tank can be filled, and there are different ways that we can express love to others.

I know this transition is necessary in order for Rey to become the man the Lord has in store for him. I’m confident that he will accomplish many things and grow even stronger with his walk in the Lord. My prayer for him is that the Lord will continue to protect him, and guide him through the many obstacles that await, and give him the strength to press on with times get rough.
As for me, I know that in time things will get better and the tears will begin to dry up, however right now everything reminds me of him. It’s the oddest thing, I will drive past something and all of a sudden I can recall a complete conversation Rey and I had at that specific moment. The oddity of that statement is I can barely remember what I did the day before. So you could only image what kind of tricks my mind is playing on me. Talking to him is particularly hard since I look forward to hearing his voice and connecting with him, but hanging up is difficult to do. I know it’s coming when we’ll say our goodbyes and yet the tears will begin to run down my face once again.
I just want to say thank you to all who have been there for me and have allowed me to cry on your shoulder, and drag me out so that I’m not home sulking. I love you all.
Rey, I love you more than words can express and I miss you terribly…I’m looking forward to seeing you in a few weeks. Till then I will cherish our many talks.
