Latina, geek wannabe, amateur photographer,
voracious reader, child advocate, work in progress.
We know your time is valuable and that you have many Facebook memes and Buzzfeed listicles to read so we appreciate that you have stopped by. Management reserves the right to bore you at a moment's notice. You have been warned.
Ah, the obnoxiously bad sense of humor. How you must have missed it!
About the Site
After a four (!) year hiatus, the blog is back. All the entries from 2001 to 2012 are currently living in another database. When or if they'll be merged is yet to be decided. So, let's hope this iteration is better than ever but, really, as we all know, lowered expectations are the key to happiness. So, for now, I'm just happy to have dusted off the cobwebs and gotten things back to a good enough shape to hold whatever may pop into my head.
At some point down the line I'd like to make sure the code behind this thing is solid but one thing at a time.
You can navigate around the site in various ways:
- With the pagination links at the bottom of the home page. (Will be visible once I've posted more than 10 entries.)
- Using the Previous Entry and Next Entry links on the individual post pages.
- Using the calendar on the Archives page;
- Additionally, each entry's categories will appear at the bottom of the entry. You can navigate to all the entries in a category by clicking on the category link. A list of the categories and their description appears below.
The site is powered by Expression Engine, a lot of trial and error, crazy levels of frustration, and my wanna-be geek tendencies. I have hopes that things will improve as I get back into the swing of tinkering with the space again.
I've wanted a family for as long as I can remember. Since the hysterectomy in 2015 (needed to treat the endometrial cancer) left me unable to have children, I'm going to attempt to adopt a child. Entries detailing the adoption process and related moments will be tagged with this category.
The creative outlets...
Artsy Crafty -
Once in a while I create things with my hands. Maybe I'll even write about those things here!
Most of my photos now are taken with the phone's camera but I do have a "real" camera that I have intentions of using more. This is where I'll post photos or my musings on anything photography related.
I don't cross stitch often but when I do I like to document my process as most (pretty much all) of my projects tend to be gifts. And after all the hours I spend on those projects, I do like to have something to remind me of all the effort that went into creating the piece. Photos and discussions of those projects will go here.
The day to day of my life. This is probably where most of the entries will go.
All the musings about TV, books, and movies, etc that is fit to
I don't really do movie reviews but every once in a while a movie will leave me wanting more information, those musings will go here.
Books, books, books! I don't read enough. I need to change that.
This category will most likely include all my rants about how silly some shows are. Which leads one to ask, why do I watch silly shows? Hmm...
Will mostly be outfits of the day, or general musings about plus size shopping (and the struggles that that entails).
I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer in 2015; it was successfully treated but, not surprisingly, that diagnosis had a significant effect on my life. I'm still processing how things have changed since then.
The posts about my attempts at making better choices, exercise, nutrition, etc.
The general details about keeping my site(s) up and running, my forays into all things digital.
A blank page is a terrifying thing, is it not?
