Santa Clause & Mrs. Clause 2010

Santa Clause and Mrs. Clause arrived in a helicopter today @ Presbyterian Hospital.  My little Alex was so excited to come down during my lunch hour to see him and verify that he has in deed received his letter this year; he in fact did and told him before he could even asked him LOL as you can see in the picture below the expression of shock of my dear son's face; like saying wow how did you know that!!! He told me mom this one is not the messenger this one is the real Santa; he knows about my letter.  Of course son this one is the real one :)  I love seeing my son soooo excited, it gives me a sense of warmth and happiness.

Just wanted to stop by to wish all my friends and fellow readers a very Merry Christmas; my our Lord bless each and everyone of you and your families.  May this Christmas Season be full of love, joy, faith,health, lots of family and friends!   God bless you and be safe...

Past Weekend 12/18-12/19

So this past weekend I went to The Tumbleweed Night Club to the dance of Alacranes Musical.  I had not been in that club for about 7 yrs; dang that is how long I had not been to a dance, I have been to concerts, but not dance clubs.  At first being in there was truly depressing for me because I used to go dancing there with Chuy when I was a teen, that was one of the places we spent our first dates, break-ups, and reconcilations.  I got so depressed I could'nt enjoy myself so I got drunk!  I am a cheap drunk, I am not used to drinking so I got drunk with 1 corona and 1 margaritta with this I was set. 

The drinks didn't erase the memories; they were still there, but I started to dance and sing.  It was an ok time, but I don't know if I could go back there...  I didn't really want to go, but my boyfriend Alejandro won tickets on the radio and he wanted to go, so I went. :)  Maybe if it were Los Rieleros del Norte I would of enjoyed myself more or to think about it I would have probably even got more depressed since alot of their songs bring back memories.

I am so proud to announce that my son Alexandro has been doing very good in his Hip-Hop classes; He had his very first show case on Dec.11 2010 at the Kiva @ the convention center.  He won 1st PLACE!!!! WOOT WOOT... We are also talking about getting into the Public Academy Performing Arts school for middle school through high school.  I mentioned it to him last night and he got really excited!!! I guess he is down...

I just want to support his dreams like my patent's never supported my Orchestra dreams when I was his age!  Alexandro is soooo smart and is getting through things better and better each day. His counseling is helping a lot; he has two at school and one @ private one.  He seems to look happier now, which makes me feel better too!  I hated seeing him depressed everyday.  This year he has gotten 2 metals and one 1st place trophy; he is supposed to get another metal tonight, I will keep you posted :)

1 Year Anniversary (1973-2009)

Chuy passed away at 36 years old
I was left destroyed and depressed
until the day comes for me to be by his side again, I will be happy again.
He was my first love,my first illusion, and the father of my son,
my friend, and my confident, but I still feel he is with me.

I dream of him almost every night like a sweet angel rounding and protecting us,
I know one day I will see him again in a perfect sun rise.
I want to think that until that day comes; he is always with me because I will always have him
in my heart and in my most sweet memories. There is not a single day that I don't think about him, or see him in the face of our son.

Please do not stop on his tomb to cry; he is not there because
he is the breeze that blows in the evenings of summer,
he is the diamond that shines on the snow when winter comes,
he is the light of the sun that illuminates my hair,
he is one of the so many beautiful stars that shine in the sky, and the huge moon that lights up the darkness of the night.

When the soft rain falls in the Fall; it's him.
In the morning when a breeze of wind caresses our face, it's him caressing us.
When we hear the birds singing in the Spring; it's him talking to us, trying to inspire us.
When from my window I see the sun set, I feel he is there smiling at us.
Everyday in all our moments; he is not there, he is here with us always.
When our day comes to leave this earth; he will be there to give us the beautiful welcome into a perfect heaven close to our Lord and our beautiful Virgen de Guadalupe!
One year has passed, and the pain still feels like if it were yesterday; we all miss and pray for your soul everyday my beloved Chuy...

Update that I am still alive…

I have not blogged in soooooo long; my life has been truly hectic. Lots of problems, one after the other, but I am still here trying to survive as we must. My depression has gotten worse and it gets me awfully mad at myself that I can not control it. Now I am also getting anxiety attacks, I am on celexa for depression and xanix for anxiety. I used to be able to handle life without drugs and now if I don’t take these two little pills I can’t get through the day.

Sadly my son has started therapy; I can no longer do it on my own to help him cope with the loss of two father figures plus everything else his seen through my sickness. He lost his biological father in October of 2009, and also Cesar another figure he once called dad in June 2010. He has depressed anxiety according to his therapist; he has now been to 2 sessions, his third one will be in September. I just hope we can deal with this before he gets older and gets to the point where I am now.

My poor baby has seen his parents go through a lot, and it is now affecting him in a way I didn’t notice before; he is not the kid I once knew, I too am not the same Cristina I remember. First it was because of my brain tumor in 2005, second dealing with my cancer in 2008 till this day still fighting it. Third the passing of Chuy his father in October 2009, and Fourth the passing of Cesar June 2010, plus my depression and anxiety as well. This is a lot to deal with for a 9 year old.

About 2 weeks ago he was crying, I went up to him to ask what was wrong; he said he prays to God to make him a better person, but that it never works! I was heart broken to hear those words come out of his mouth because I know he is an awesome kid. I said babe you are the greatest person I know, you have stood by my side through all my sickness and would not leave the hospital under any condition, you don’t do drugs, smoke, or in gangs; babe you are an awesome person. It hurts me deeply that he thinks these things have happened to him because he says he is a bad person. :(

To my readers I just ask that you send your good vibes our way and to pray for us; this will help our life a little easier to cope. Have a blessed day and God bless you!

Trying to keep going...

Through the hands of Jesus Christ I will prevail; I know we go through tough times to test our faith and I have faith that God will help me through them. I have heard many don’t tell God how big your problem is, tell your problem how big God is. I pray with all my heart that some day I can be comfortable so I don’t have to struggle to make ends meet every single month and to stop living paycheck by paycheck. I’m not asking to be rich I just want to be able to survive without all the stress of either being able to eat or having to pay a bill. I know God will help me through it because I am a believer!

I have been really depressed lately, but I have been trying to break the tie with going to mass every Sunday and getting closer to God. I have been trying to keep my mind occupied on other things like reading inspirational and self help books to make my mind more at ease. I remember when I was younger I used to talk about like my problems were nothing, just a simple piece of cake. People used to say to me Cristina are you seeing a therapist? Um no why? I’m ok I have dealt with my issues since I was a kid all on my own. I guess now that I am 28 years old all those things that I thought I was dealing with all on my own just got stored up and bottled up some where deep in my soul.

I don’t know if Jesus wants something of me or if he is haunting or tormenting me because every time I try to have resignation and try to move forward to leave my life as normal as I see possible I see him in my dreams or a song I have not heard in years comes on the radio like saying Cristina remember me? I don’t know what else to do! I have prayed for his soul to be in peace, he’s family and I have asked for several masses to be given in his name. I have lit him candles to help him rest in peace, but he is still here somewhere not letting me go! All I can do is to continue to pray for his soul to rest in peace, and to let me live at peace until it is my time to reunite by his side.

My little Alexandro is in counseling now because he can’t deal with the pain of losing two father figures in such a short time; he will not talk to me about his feelings so I guess this was the only way I can try to help him cope. I have tried my best to help him deal with the pain and made myself available to him if he ever needs to talk, but I know he won’t because he see’s I am trying to deal with my own pain. I have a very smart little boy, and I thank God for him everyday, because without him I would have died years ago.

My 28th Birthday...

Happy Birthday To Me

So today is my birthday; sadly to say it has been one of the worst birthday's I have had in my now 28 years. 

Every year I write events that have occurred during each year of my life.  This is once again the start of a new life, yet I say that every year, but with each year we change, as we grow older we get wiser more knowledgeable.

I was going to have a birthday BBQ today, but everything went wrong; my dumb ass BF drank the liquor I had for the event; he got it without my knowledge last night while spying into my conversation I was having with my mother; he got drunk because he is jealous of Jesus and Cesar.  I was on the phone with my mother and I was of course venting with the one person who would understand how I feel, but how can you be jealous of people who are not even here on earth anymore?  He states I will never love him and that part I got to hand it to him because its true and its time for goodbye; the hard thing is how to tell someone who loves you, you have tried but it just not working out.

This past year has had its ups and downs, happiness, and sadness.

My cancer still shows negative which I am so glad to say, and I am very blessed.

I bought my first home all on my own which makes me very proud because it was a long lasting dream I finally reached. 

My little Alexandro is not so little anymore he turned 9 years old, wow how the years fly by. 

I also started my new job in November 2009 at Presbyterian Hospital which I am also very thankful for because the year before last I was laid off for a very long time. 

On year 27 I had very tragic and hard sadness to deal with; we lost my 1st love Jesus, my son's father at the age of 36 on October 13, 2009 as most of you already know; this caused me true sadness and deep depression which I am still trying to cope with, but I'm getting there little by little. 

I have also lost my 2nd love Cesar on June 29, 2010 at the age of 34.  The both men I ever loved in my life are no longer here with us.  I don't know why it happened so close to each other; I am still trying to figure it out, but I know I will never know.  I don't know if I will ever love again; it is a riddle I have yet to discover. 

I am having some problems with my school and was not able to go to the summer term, and hope it all works out so I can start the fall term.  I am so close to graduation that I don't want to lose more time.  That is another bump in the road, but its just those little things that help us prove ourselves.

What I learned this year:

Dreaming is the only key to keep you going; as long as we can dream we can strive to reach them. 

You never truly know how much you have loved someone until they are no longer here on earth; of course we know we love them, but when they die, our soul feels the deep pain caused by the loss. 

Saying goodbye is the hardest thing in the world.  For me saying goodbye was harder than fighting cancer and has caused me terrible grief.

Never give up no matter how hard it might seem to keep going.  I have had many moments this past year when my main focus was just giving up and wanting to die just to be with Chuy, but there was a spark on the back of my mind I had to keep going.  I want to think I now have 2 guardian angels watching over us and that they are waiting for me when my time comes. 

There is a reason why I am still here and I believe God has yet much more lessons for me to learn, this is why I'm still here. 

Trying to love someone is not always a success; no matter how much you try to love someone, the heart can never be tamed.  I tried to be in a relationship to deal with the pain and loss of my past loves, but that was a horrible mistake because it has just caused me more unhappiness; not only to myself but to him as well.  I just hope I can end this relationship no later than Monday.

Life is unexpected; things happen in a split second; without notice or time to prepare. 

Tell the people you love you love them as often as possible because we never know if it will be the last time you can say it to them. 

Always follow your instincts, your heart, and like my BFF has always told me DON'T SELL YOURSELF SHORT OR SETTLE FOR LESS BECAUSE YOU DESERVE THE BEST. (I love you Lluvia)

I am finally ready to admit what my greatest fear is.  My greatest fear is the unknown, this is why I always get stuck in the everyday routine. (My goal on my 28th year is going to learn on how to be more adventurous and try to take more chances)

That is it for the beginning of my 28th year; lets just see how many more July's God is willing to bless me with. 

Thank you my dear lord for all the hardships, blessings, pain, sadness, and happiness's.  I know you do them for a reason even though I don't always understand them.  I just ask of you to help me through them without losing myself, and without losing you! I love you my lord.  Thank you for this day!

In Loving Memory of Jorge Cesar Gasson Carlos 1976-2010

Cesar was born on April 12, 1976 in Chihuahua, Chihuahua, Mexico; he was the youngest out of his 4 other siblings, he loved to dance and his favorite color was blue. Cesar was a beautiful human being; he was a happy person, he almost never got mad, and he was a major dog lover! Everyone who met Cesar would totally fall in love with his personality; he was very outgoing and made people laugh.

Cesar had many friends and he was always willing to help those who needed of him. Cesar was there by my side in the worst of times; he helped me cope when I was going through my brain tumor. With his words of inspiration of keep fighting, never give up, God is going to help us, I fought through!

Cesar and I met in Denver, Colorado on May 28, 2005 when I was down there for my cousin’s high school graduation party. I was only in Denver for 3 days; in those 3 days he never left my side, even though I would not sleep with him; he spent those nights on my mother’s couch. When the time came I would come back home he was eager for me to stay! I told him I could not stay, but that if he was serious of us having a relationship we could get to meet each other by phone, and we would see what happened.

A week after I came back from Denver, I got ill and found out about my brain tumor. I decided to move to Denver to have my surgery, we moved in with my mother since I needed someone to care for my son Alexandro in case something happened; if I couldn't make it through the surgery.

When we arrived to my mothers house there was Cesar outside of my mothers parking area with all of his things, clothes, and even his dog; I asked what are you doing?; he said I am moving in with you guys, I want to be with you, I want to be by your side and help you through this because I have fallen in love with you. After one month of knowing each other he moved in. I loved him very much, I thought I would always be by his side; we spoke of getting old together, having more kids, and seeing our grandchildren grow up.

Alexandro loved him very much; he saw him like a father, as he did him as a son. We were a family. About 3 months after we moved in with my mom; we moved out and got our own place, we stayed there till 2007; this is when we moved back to Albuquerque and he decided to follow us in the move. We were together for 4 years until one day he decided to move back to Chihuahua.  I don’t know what gave him this instinct and he left without telling me anything. He called me at work to say goodbye when he was already in El Paso, TX. I felt my world was going to tare apart; I cried many nights, I missed him so much, but there was nothing I could do; it was he’s decision.

A month later after he left it was now May, on May 2, 2008 I found out I had cancer. I still felt awful of losing someone I truly loved and now on top of this I had cancer and felt all alone; I didn’t know if I was going to make it. Cesar found out and even with him being far away, we loved each other and he would call me to make me strong; having him far away was really hard on the both of us, but there was nothing we could do. He was not a legal citizen and it would take time. Alexandro and I went to see him at Chihuahua in July of 2008 right after one of my surgeries; I got ill on the bus, but I didn’t care because I had to go so we could get married in order for me to be able to bring him back, but none of our plans went through. Cesar and I only got married by word; we put our rings on and promised each other to stay faithful to each other until the day came when we would be together again.

A week after I came from Chihuahua, I left to Denver for a second opinion; here in Albuquerque they were not giving me any hope to fight my cancer and was told I could die, so I packed a suit case and left on the bus. After my surgeries, I came back home once again to Albuquerque, and the calls between Cesar and I slowly were drifting away; every time I called he wasn’t home, Cesar and I were drifting away. I felt as though he was never going to come back.

I called and explained I didn’t want a relationship of just one call a month and that I needed more of him; that I was going insane of not knowing nothing about him, especially after knowing the stories on the news and the violence that was going on in Chihuahua, Mexico. Time and time went by, and less and less I knew about how Cesar was doing.

In September 2009 Jesus got really ill; his mother Lupe, Alexandro and I went to Matachic, Chihuahua, MX to see him; this man was the love of my life since I was 14 years old and the father of my son, I had to go.

Have you ever been in love with 2 people at once?

I didn’t think it was possible, but it is! I loved both of these men very much, but I loved Jesus even more. When I was with one I always thought of the other. I went to see Jesus and saw how ill he was and how much he needed of me; we made plans, but those also didn’t come through because he passed away on October 13, 2009.

After Jesus’ death Cesar tried his hardest to help me cope with the pain, but I was in so much pain I would not listen! He would email me to make me understand Jesus was in a better place and that I had to understand he was no longer here. I would not understand I was in too much pain, all I wanted to do at that point was die; but Cesar would never give up; he kept pushing to make me feel better.

Life is ironic, I was the one who wanted to die, and now he has lost his life! Cesar was full of life; he loved his life, and it has now been taken away by idiots who only believe in violence. Chihuahua’s situation right now is awful; the mafia is controlling everything and going to businesses to charge money in return of not burning them down.

Cesar boss refused to pay this quota since it was he’s own business; there was a drive by shooting because of this and on June 29, 2010; five workers were shot, and Cesar was shot twice on the back; he didn’t survive! I can’t believe it, I am in shock; he never got into any problems, never hurt anyone, and now they have taken his life!

This makes me terribly angry; he wanted to live, he wanted to get married, and to have kids, and now all those dreams were taken away from him. The last time I talked to Cesar was on April 12, 2010 when I emailed him to congratulate him on his 34th birthday; he was very happy to hear from me and blessed me as he always did and wished for me to be happy in everything that I decided to do with my life. Goodbye Cesar, now you’re in heaven with Jesus, and I am still here trying to cope with the pain of knowing you are both now gone!

Jorge Cesar Gasson-Carlos April 12, 1976-June 29, 2010

R.I.P you will be missed by all of us who loved you.

Cesar when I was in pain after Jesus died you asked me if I would cry if you died; this is your answer! I loved you too, I loved you with all of my heart, and Alexandro is also full of sadness to know who he saw as a father is no longer here! God rest your soul “Mi Chelos”.

Long 4th of July weekend…

I am so very excited to be off from work for 4 days; I am so going to relax and enjoy my long weekend!!!

as every other day of the week was the task of getting up, taking a shower, get ready, and going to work to make the paper.

Work was kind of hectic, not because of the working task, but because of the tension some of my co-workers put into the working place. I have never ever worked with people who act this way; it is so very stressful. This situation even causes me to have back aches and headaches!!!!

It is sad they have nothing else better to do than to bitch about everything even bitch about bitching; it’s exhausting! Just shut up, worry about yourself and do your damn job and fawk off!!!!!!

What will be the Saturday routine?
So very excited to go see “Eclipse” we are going to the early bird viewing because it’s only $5; the day has finally arrived! I wanted to go on June 30th when it first came out, but I decided to wait to save money by going to the early bird viewing instead; it saves a lot of money. After the Movies we are going to go eat at Furr’s mmmmmm yum yum.

What are your 4th of July plans?

Still not sure what is going down on this day; but definitely going to go see some fire works.

Have a safe and awesome 4th of July peeps; God Bless America the land of the FREE!

Tuesday of Terror…

I call it Tuesday of terror because today it was the gynecologist appointment; I hate pap smears, I hate them so much I had not had one since my son was born. Yup, it has been 9 years since my last one; what can I say I don’t like them and it’s kind of a phobia for me! I wouldn’t have gone if I weren’t having the problems I am currently having.


So I went to work today, I left early around 1:00 p.m., Alejandro and Alexandro picked me up from work, so we went to Ho Ho’s for lunch prior to my appointment, and let me just say I will never ever return there again; I don’t even want to get started on the restroom, I just went in to wash my hands and I think my hands were cleaner while going in than when I came out! The chairs were all sticky and the lamps on the ceiling had like 3 inches worth of dust mites on them ewwwww nasty! If I wake up with food poison or something of that nature, we now what caused it.

We arrived to the gynecologist @ 2:15 p.m. and I was nervous; about 15 min to 3:00 p.m. they finally called me in; they took all my medical history yadi yadi yada. Then comes the phrase of please remove all of your clothing and put on the gown, oh boy!!! Then that dreadful bed with the foot rests or whatever they are called. Ay ay ay! Anyways so I had my exam; the gynecologist states I am a very complex patient due to all my medical history, she said I gave her a lot to take in at once! LOL that was kind of funny; she could not believe someone so young has gone through all my medical history, but hey it’s not like I chose it! The only results I obtained today was the fact I am not pregnant, hello big surprise I already knew that LOL. I will receive the Pap test results in about a week; I also have to call to schedule a pelvic ultrasound tomorrow. I will keep you updated to see when that will be.


When I got home I came straight to take a nap, now I just had an ice cream cone and now I am going to bed! Ohhhh did I mention my only excitement right now is “Eclipse” is in theaters tomorrow! Ok peep good night, talk to you mañana…

Over the weekend…

So how was everybody’s weekend? Mine was ok, can’t complain, well actually I do have a few things to complain about; not about my weekend, but of things that occurred during the weekend. On Saturday, USA was eliminated from the World Cup 2010 by GHA 2-1; it was a major disappointment for me.

Then I said well at least I still have my hopes put on my Mexico; maybe Mexico will win the World Cup 2010! Wrong again; on Sunday afternoon, Mexico was eliminated by Argentina 3-1, I actually got drunk on “Coronas”, and cried for a while. The passion of soccer for us Mexicans is unexplainable; the pain of always losing hurts our hearts deeply! I mean come on, I will be 28 years old on July 10th and I have never seen Mexico make it to the finals, it is so hurtful as well as disappointing!!!! Ahhhhuuuu why can’t we just win once?

I’m also very sad about what happened on Saturday.
On Saturday, June 26, 2010 Mexican singer Sergio Vega AKA (El Shaka) was murdered after a car chase by an assassination gang in Sinaloa near the hills of Barobampo, Mexico. His partner survived the firing, but sadly he lost his life.

This is a great loss for the Mexican music industry as well as the field of music in general. The murder took place right before the time when Sergio Vega was to join his crew for an upcoming musical tour. Lately Musicians who sing about Mexico’s Drug wars have often become targets of warring drug gangs, and at least seven have been killed in the past three years.

El Shaka was born on September 12, 1969 in Ciudad Obregon in the state of Sonora Mexico. Sergio Vega El Shaka belonged to a family which had a lot of background in music.

The following are just a few of his so many songs:

• Quien es usted

• Necesito Dueña

• Te queiro

• Me gusta estar contigo

• Te amo mucho

He will be missed dearly! *R.I.P Sergio Vega 1969-2010*

In other news, I would like to introduce you to the newest member of our family “Gris”; she is 7 weeks old, and we just got her yesterday! She is already a spoiled little brat. I bought her a little house for her to sleep in and she doesn’t want to stay in it; she gets out and jumps onto my bed. Gris doesn’t mow if she’s on the bed, but she mows as soon as you get her off; SPOILED!!!! Now we have 2 dogs and 1 cat. LOL

Nothing much else to say except that today I went to work, church, and home! Tomorrow again work, and to the gynecologist appointment; oh dear!!! Wish me lots of luck…I’ll let you know how it went.

Read ya later Earthlings :) Have a great night!

Finally Friday…

So today is finally Friday! YAY Thank goodness; this was one of the longest weeks of my life, maybe because I have not been feeling so great. I still feel like I have a fever and my stomach doesn’t feel that 100% yet! At least I get to rest this weekend, as soon as I got home I took a nap! I have felt so exhausted lately, sometimes I fear my “Cancer” is back and that is why I feel the way I do; I totally freak out!


In other frustrations my college is totally driving me nuts, first they told me I would not be able to go to this summer term because I owe money back because I got my Pell grant prematurely or something like that, and even though they stated I was not going to be able to start classes they registered me anyway. Really! Are you Serious! Well I didn’t know, so I have not been doing homework; then I decided to start on homework and they tell me that if I want to continue to have access to class, I need to pay what I am short on no later than June 29th. Ok so I e-mailed them to withdrawal me from the course, and now they want to charge me to withdrawal! What? Can you talk about confusion? I am totally stressing over these! Fawk… I sent another email because I can never get them on the phone; let see if there is a response when I log into my e-mail tonight.

Ok well changing the subject, what are you gonna do this weekend? I am going to rest, rest, and rest some more! Catch up on some movies on the Internet, um yeah I see bootlegged movies on the Internet LOL, I do save the ones I truly want to see for the big screen; even then, I go to the early bird viewing because lets face it now in days going to the movies is so darn expensive, right? Imagine there are 3 of us, $10 each ticket that is $30 bucks for 1 movie; that is what I paid for the concert tickets for August 1st! Crazy! I’d rather get up earlier and just pay ½ price of $5.

On my way home my son called that his nino/uncle would be dropping him off later tonight because they were at his cousin’s baseball game! SWEET… I came straight home and took a nap; I slept until he got here, then we ate dinner, talked for a bit, and went to bed. Did I mention it is so awesome it is finally Friday? LOL Have a good weekend everyone!

**I would also like to take the time to welcome my new followers, hope we can become good buddies**

Friday Follow Me-June 25th


Not much to tell…

Today was one of those days you’re at work, and all you think about is going home!

I also miss my buddy Charlene from Academy Corporation, I so miss it there; good times, good times! Anyway it is what it is and I must be grateful for what I have until something better soon arrives.

I don’t want to just answer phones for the rest of my life, I need to graduate soon and start to accomplish the goals I have stuck in my head. Some day, one day I will own my own company; it doesn’t need to be big or huge. It just needs to bring in the “papa” like us Mexicans say, just enough to pay the bills, pay my college loans, and get my kid through college!

(The monkey is not relevant to the blog; I just thought it was funny!)

I’m still stuck with the hope of winning the lotto LOL I would be one of those people who would share her wealth with those less fortunate, with the people I love, and those who are special to me. Maybe some day not to far off! Keep on hoping hu?

Today when 5:00 p.m.came I was so grateful! I can’t wait till July when I have a few days off from that place; that phone beeping noise finally gets to you after a while, also those patients who think they are the only patients in the planet huuuuu annoying. We have thousands of patients who have butt issues ok, not just you!

In other news, my excitement grows each day because each day it gets closer to June 30th; and you know what that means right? No? Well “Eclipse” will be in theaters on that day and we are so going! Who wants to tag along?

Yesterday I also bought 3 tickets to go see “Vicente Fernandez” the King of Mexican Regional Music at the Journal Pavilion! Heck ya!!!! Lawn tickets were on sale yesterday for only $10, you can’t beat that! I saw him in concert last year; I was one of the crazy women who bought 2x tickets for $180 each, but it was so worth it.

Alexandro had hip-hop class today and learned some new hip-hop moves! Write to you later; the weekend is almost here. YAY!!!

Stomach bug?

During the weekend I started with an upset stomach ouuuchhhh! Not sure what triggered it; my mom told me there is a bug going around, but who knows. On Monday I started to get a fever while at work; on Tuesday when I got up to get ready for work well lets just say it was not going to happen! I felt awful; don’t you just hate it when you have the stomach flu or sort of a bug? It is the worst feeling ever.

Today I woke up kind of the same; I was even hesitant if I should go to work or not, but I made it through the day. I just hope it is not something serious. I have been having some menstrual problems; today I received an email from WebMD regarding menstrual problems; coincidence? Weird hu? Some of the symptoms I am currently having where in that e-mail. I have to admit that with my health history, I freak out easily so you can imagine how I felt when I saw the possibility of ovarian Cancer! Terrifying issue for me… Cancer again? Really are you serious? Could it be? Cristina why do you always think of the worst? Panic attack! Ok I will calm down now; promise!

My menstrual cycle has gone way out of whack, I have been getting my period every 2 weeks, and it is scary as well as very annoying. I have an appointment on June 29th with the gynecologist who I am so dreading aahhhhhh! I don’t like the gynecologist, I would much rather go to the dentist! I just hope all things go well, and whatever I have is not serious; I am scared they will either tell me I have ovarian cancer or that I will no longer be able to have more children. I want to have at least one more baby before I shut down the factory. Now all I can do is hope it all goes well next Tuesday.

The following was on WebMD:

You're Bleeding In Between Periods

This is one period problem you shouldn’t ignore. "If you're bleeding between periods, it should be investigated," Loffer says.

Causes can range from something benign -- such as having an irritated sore in the vaginal area or forgetting to take your birth control pill -- to something as serious as an ectopic pregnancy or cancer. Visit your doctor for an exam.

The first thing that popped out to me from that information was the word “CANCER”. I don’t know if I have the strength to fight cancer again! Maybe I am worrying for no reason; ok peeps write to you later, I am now going to bed. Good night…

Father’s Day…

How was your Fathers Day? Mine was totally awesome! Alejandro, Alex and I had so much fun at the zoo. We got there early to walk around the zoo before the concert started. We decided to take our own cooler filled with drinks and food; it saved us a lot of money that is for sure, and we had a great time while saving some mula!

Beatriz Adriana was amazing; it was so cool to see a person I have idolized since I was a little girl.  I sang along with every song; I even danced in the grass with my little Alex.

This outing helped us do something together as a family, and it helped me realize how sweet my Alejandro is! He is a sweet guy…

I called my dad and my brother to wish them a lovely Fathers Day.  I invited my dad to the concert, but he had his own plans with his lady which truly doesn’t surprise me! That is dad for you; in his own little world, in Luis town. It’s all good though, whatever makes him happy, and floats his boat; I did my part.

The weather was so very crazy, all day long it was hot; I even got sun burn on my ears to prove it, and yes I had sunscreen on. Right when Beatriz Adriana came out, the best part of the concert in which we were all waiting all day for, a wind storm began. Then on top of that it started raining. Oh well! I sure didn’t care; nothing was going to get me away from that concert.

When we got home we ate the left over pizza from the night before, relaxed in front of the television, and watched a reality show called “Desafio”. After that I have no idea, I don’t even remember at what time I dosed off. The weekend was too short, I guess that’s the way it feels when you’re having fun! From a close of eyes it would soon be Monday once again and off to work! One down and 4 more to go.

It would be totally awesome if I would win the lottery, and I no longer had to work; wouldn’t that just be so great? Yes, it would!!! I guess I can keep on dreaming, hey you never know it can happen. =P For now I am thankful God provides me with good health and employment :) Hope you have an excellent week, soon the weekend will arrive once again! God bless.
