from Guatemala! I'm taking the opportunity to write before it gets to crazy hot around the computer and I start melting on to the keys. I have so much going through my head right now. I've been in Guatemala a week now and I don't think I've felt this home sick before. I think it has to do with it being the holidays and things here aren't really the same as they are there. Luis and I were sitting outside and I heard a christmas song, Nsync to be exact, and I just kind of lost it. I'm torn between spending much needed time with the husband and the traditional christmas with family and friends. I think i finally kind of broke down last night after I stayed home all day while Luis was at work and I had too much time to think. I finished my book, listened to about all the music I could bare, cleaned, watched TV and of course sweat till I thought there was nothing left to sweat. I'm missing my brothers back from college, friends home for the holidays that I haven't seen in what seems forever, tree decorating, and the traditional gathering at the Leishmens...I could go on. I don't want it to feel like I'm ungrateful, because I am grateful. I'm glad I got to spend Luis' birthday with him and soon christmas and just the fact that we are together is a bonus. I just got a bad case of the should-of, would-of, could-of, and ifs and buts. I've been here 6 times. Still feels like the first when people just stare at you when you walk or ride by. I don't speak or understand spanish so it's kind of hard to talk to others and sometimes it's uncomfortable when things don't get explained to me. I get very self conscious and I have to stay on my toes when we go out. Even in the neighborhood I still have to be careful. Luis has some cute little cousins that live next door and they are fun to watch. I think we have been to the little...and when I say little...I mean it...mall...everyday just so I can get out of the heat. We did get to be a normal couple saw a movie in a real theater! Whoo! This morning we hired a Mariachi singer to come and sing this morning to Luis' mom Irma for her birthday. He was pretty good, didn't understand any of it. But it sounded good. Other than that, there's not much else going on. We are pretty much broke so we have to find things to do around the house or the mall. But we are together, so I'll survive. It's starting to get hot so I think I'm gonna get ready for the day. Did i mention that the shower water is cold...all the time...well it is...all the time...awesome...
Have a great Christmas!

I'd be happy with just a box of chocolates

It's true. Every year dad reminds us to have our christmas lists up before the end of thanksgiving. Fair enough. I can come up with a list of things that I would like to have, some seem more essential than just wants. The list is full of wishes, but I definitely would not be disappointed if I didn't get everything or even half on that list. I've been privileged enough to grow up in a home where every need of mine has been met and even most wants. Even now with my expensive trips to guatemala my parents have been a tremendous help even when they know I won't be able to pay them back right away or even in the next couple months. What patience and love that must take. I am truly blessed and thankful for my wonderful family.

Some info

So part of the process that we have to go through for Luis' immigration paperwork is a hardship process. Pretty much what we have to do is try and explain why it would be impossible for me to live in Guatemala and how Luis is such a great guy(which he is of course).The part where family and friends can help is writing a letter. So I guess I am asking, if you are willing, to write a letter in support of bringing Luis back to the United States. Here is a basic guideline:



To Whom It May Concern:

My name is [NAME]. I am a [US CITIZEN? LEGAL PERMANENT RESIDENT?] of the United States. I make this statement in support of the immigration case of Luis Diaz Jr.


I know some haven't had the chance to meet Luis yet, and that makes it kind of difficult to write about him. The lawyers suggested to write as much as you know about him and maybe writing about what you have seen on my side without him here. The importance of family is a good factor to work in, meaning Luis and I as a family and me and my immediate (stott) family. Sending via email would be best but if you prefer the traditional way that is perfectly fine. If you have any questions just let me know! Thank you for all your support and help! It means the world to us!

Change of plans

So my last blog said I was going to the Carolina Liar concert...Not anymore. Bittersweet. More sweet than bitter. Ok a lot more sweet than bitter. I'm going to see the hubby and won't be around here to see them. Little sad about that. Was really looking forward to see them again but I'm much happier about seeing my husband. I'll be gone for Christmas...and it will be my first Christmas away from my family...and in another country. We'll see how it goes. Either way I am way excited to see Luis. It's long over due. Maybe this will be the last time I will have to travel to Guatemala to see him? Cross your fingers!

Homework, movies and concerts

I have been in no mood for homework. It's just the pits. I must have some kind of major case of writer's block. It doesn't help that I have two papers due and I can't come up with any ideas or any way to put my very minimal ideas onto paper. I have no motivation. None. There has got to be a way to get past this. It's just taking me an awfully long time to figure it out.
Other than the slue of homework I feel like a little school girl.
I read through the Twilight series...yet again...
I really just enjoy reading them...and I'm excited for the movie. Again, little school girl feelings. Can't help it. I'm on team edward. I feel like I'm the oldest person(not that I'm old...I've been told I'm still a baby...thank you for that...?) out there excited about the books and excited about the movie... But. I'm sure i'm not?
In concert news Carolina Liar and The Airborne Toxic Event are coming to portland on the 18th of December and I'm way excited. I saw Carolina Liar just a couple weeks ago and they were AMAZING and now I have to see them again. They are that awesome. I got to meet them after the concert and seriously...they were so nice. Tickets are only 12 bucks and it's at the Crystal Ball Room so if anyone is interested my friend Katie and I are going to go and if you need a concert buddy you are more than welcome to come too!
Here is one of their most known songs. I'm Not Over

a sumthin...

It's been a week or two so I thought I would update a little. And I mean little. Not much has gone on. No word on the paperwork but it doesn't worry me. I'm still working and going to school and homework is still kicking my butt. Oh buddy. I can't wait for the day to come that I won't have to do homework again! Luis is doing well. He still gets to work every once in a while and his mom is still making delicious cakes. He fell off his motorcycle the other day...something I am NOT happy about...his skinned his knee and his elbow just a little bit...and that's about it...but still...I was never happy about the whole motorcycle thing in the beginning...even if it is the easiest way of transportation down least he's alive. I can be thankful for that.
Well besides that nothing really has been going down. The boys(my brothers) are coming home for thanksgiving and i'm excited to see them. I miss them more than they probably think! It will be fun to have them home even for the short while.
Well. I'm off to do more homework...highlight of my day ;)

My dad is amazing

My computer crashed. Got the blue screen of death...a couple times...not awesome. But somehow my amazing dad fixed it. I'm pretty sure he can do just about anything. and if he can't...he figures it out. It's just amazing how much he does for our family, like taking time to fix my silly little laptop. Yep. Dad is fan-freakin-tastic. Love him lots!

one good one bad thats my theory

so one great awsome thing happened last week and that was monica went back to oregon. thats great but but i've noticed something in my life when something good happens something bad has to happen or the other way around. it all started when monica left that next day my cousin dislocated his shoulder in my head i was like so that was the bad thing but it didn't happen to me. now I'm waiting for something good to happen. There seems to be a lot of family drama in Guatemala that is unavoidable. I don't want that for my mom. I just have to hope that everyone will grow up. But I really am happy for Monica. It's all we wanted.

Monday, October 13, 2008

One step closer!

Today Luis and I received an email from our paralegal saying our petition was approved! Yay!
That means we can apply for Luis' visa and turn in our hardship letters! We didn't think it would go this fast! We are so happy it did. Monica's paperwork is going well so we are hoping Luis' will too! Happy Day!

a little release

Have you ever felt like nothing is going right. you want to be like, screw everything. yeah thats me right now. not cool. its like need something and cant have it but don't know what it is. the job i have isn't going right, I'm broke, and just not been in the mood to deal with nothin. how do i deal with it? I just don't know.

One other thing...

So I'm into this whole photo editing, online scrapbooking and so on junk...not that I am remotely good at, or do it often...But when I find something new...I get excited and spend all night playing with it...Even if I'm the last one to discover it...It's googles newest photo editor and I think it's pretty handy. It's pretty much fool proof...that means Britany proof...and you can make collages which is super awesome for me cuz that's what I like to use as my desktop. It's a quick little download and it searches for all your photos so you don't have to do any importing! Yay for new discoveries!

A little old?

I was organizing some of my pictures and ran across this one. I absolutely love my brothers and I was so proud of them when they recieved their Eagles for scouts. I miss them tons while they are off doin the college thing....Whatever....they would go be smart...Either way...I love em...and miss em. and they are so darn cute.

I love online scrapbooking,

It leads me to so many new things and I think this is one of my favorite things so far. Yay for new blog headers! Give it a try!


5, class, letter

Trip number five! I'm back once again. It's bittersweet as always. I had a great time with Luis and I needed that time with him real bad. The time apart puts a serious toll on me, and him as well. Just being able to see him face to face, to be able to actually talk to him without a phone...amazing! It puts me at ease the moment I see his face when I'm walking out of the airport. I can only hope and wish and have faith that he will be able to come back soon and we can start getting settled into our crazy married life. How wonderful would that be? Simply gratifying.
I start classes again tomorrow...whoo...I'm going to try for the 2010 nursing program to become...well...a nurse. Yay! I think this is my true calling, besides being a wife and future mom. I've been dwindling far to long and it's time to get on track. It feels good to know what I really want to do now.
Luis and I recived a letter from our lawyer telling us what we can start working on while we wait for the next step which is Luis' interview for his visa. So now we can start writing our letters for hardship. This means I write a letter saying I can't survive without Luis, here, in the United States while I go to school, work and have my family here and how impossible it would be for me to live in Guatemala for the next 10 years. AND then Luis has to write a letter pretty much saying him being apart from me would effect me. Cuz it's all about me. Or that's what we have to make it sound like. Along with our 2 letters, we need family and friends to write letters for us to show their support for Luis coming back to the States. It all makes me very nervous. There are a bunch of 'what ifs' running through my mind but I'm trying my best to think positivly without getting my hopes crushed.
I'm watching the emmy's and Josh Groban is coming'm gonna go watch him...cuz i love him. How could you not?

But of course I love my husband more!

Take Two

Devyn left yesterday morning.
Took a little effort to not start bawling.
Both little brothers are off doing the college thing. It's a little quiet around here. But not to quiet. There are still 2 little girls that know how to make lots of noise.
But ya know. Miss the bros.
On another note. I am making another trip to Guatemala to see the hubby!!!
I'm gonna be flat broke...but...I gotta go. I'm excited.

One down. One to go.

"Back to school. Back to school, to prove to Dad that I'm not a fool. I got my lunch packed up, my boots tied tight, I hope I don't get in a fight. Ohhhh, back to school. Back to school. Back to school. Well, here goes nothing." -Billy Madison

I only teared up a little when Derek left this morning. Ok...maybe a few tears got a away...but I wanted to make it as painless as possible for both of us. Sad day. Off he goes to college. BYU-Utah. Of course I'm happy for him. But I'll miss him and his quirky remarks...his fighting with Annie...not so much... I'd like to think that my brothers and I are close...I know not the closest of close...we didn't pour our hearts and souls out to one another, but there is something definatly there I'm gonna miss while they are off getting edumacated. I'll miss laughing with them...and at them. I'm sure they'll have stuff to share with me every once in a while...but you know...
I'm sure it will be the same when Devyn leaves in a week. And I'll write again when he does.
It's gonna be quiet around here...not to quiet...there are still 2 little girls which the world revolves around...if you asked them...Poor many girls to deal with...Annie has a long list of sports she's gonna do just to keep dad on his toes :)
I'll have school starting up at the end of next month to keep me keep my mind and fingers busy. Always have to be busy.
I'm really proud of my brothers, even if they are leaving me hear alone...I'll forgive them one day. I love them lots. And I probably don't tell them that enough, but I hope they know that.

a true miracle

For you that don't know, I work at a toll booth on the highway collecting money. this is how my day started. i had just gotten back from lunch i was doing my job when i heard a scream. i didn't even get a chance to turn my head when i heard and felt something coming behind me and crashing in the back of me. i felt it on my back and legs i froze and stayed calm while i felt like i was gonna die or something crazy bad was happening to me i found a way to slip out and came out calm and a work partner said 'hey come here so i went and was like what the heck happened i looked behind me and i saw a crazy big semi trailer had crashed in my cabin. people were freaking out thinking i was dead cuz they said there was no way i could of survived that. but i did. just look at the picture. crazy. so next day i went to church to say thank you to god cuz he was the only one that could of saved me from that.

So our first part of the paperwork is FINALLY through.

Whoo! What a sigh of relief.



Off to work...that is not a sigh of relief. In fact, I am quite tired of it.

Another day, another dollar. : /

Hobbies and News

I've been on this new kick of online scrapbooking/photography. I don't know if it's just a phase but I think photography, along with scrapbooking, is something I would really like to look into as a part time hobby. I def. don't have an awesome camera, or any awesome photography programs, but slowly I am learning and discovering new things. I hope that one day I will be able to purchase an awesome camera and awesome photography software...till then, i will dream and keep researching and admiring the pieces of work that i find.
Here's some good news: Luis found a job! So far so good. I'll let him tell you what he does when he has a chance. He's been working nonstop for the past couple days so he doesn't have much time to do anything, but he's figuring it out. I'm happy for him. He's keeping busy and working towards our future together. I love him lots!
I am signed up for yet more classes this next term at PCC. 17 credits anyone? We'll see how that goes...
One other thing.
I'm having a Interior Design party on the 31st of July and anyone is welcome to attend. We are having fondue. I mean...come on...who doesn't like fondue? Just let me know if you want to come!

So i went to a interview this thursday at the capital and its a pretty good paying job. The people were impressed with my english and they offered me a job and at first i was happy. I signed everything i needed to start training, i finished and headed home and i didn't get home till around 8pm. When i got home i figured it all out and it sucked. My schedule would be get up at 3am so a bus could pick me up at 4AM. Not cool right? Start work at 8am get off at 4:30pm then i would get home 8ish, sleep, do it over again and i would only get saturday off. Not worth it. I would get like five hours of sleep every day, if that, and no time to do anything else. To harsh what do you think? holla at me

I love my gangster husband

Wednesday, June 25, 2008


I was runnin late into work feelin my head going boom boom like if my heart was up there , ha, wonder why? im comin in and when i was walking I see this cute girl with her head down puttin cloths on hangers when she raises her head up and smiles and im like hello. yeah i swear my head quites bumpin and then my heart starts . crazy stuff true story. she worked in the intimate section near the shoe back room so you know i was going back there as much as i could tryin to spit some game, you know what i mean but man i could go past the flirtin part i was scared of rejection or something weird just getting done with a long relationship, afraid to get in a new one. I remember this night I checked this girl out but the i figured out she always went to me so i could check her out wondering if she did it on purpose. I asked my homie danny, "hey fool shes cute hu?" he was like," yeah fool, go talk to her ." so i did but i punked out and didnt ask for a number or nothing. the a couple min. later she comes back and asks me for a little plastic bag. then the rest of my shift i was disappointed in me. so shift is over and i run to my car cause it was raining and when i turn my car on I see a plastic bag on my windshield. I grab it and look at what in side and its notes from Britany ha i'm like tight. and it had her number on there and said call me, ha i was like excited so you know I did call her and now we're married, hella sick, i haven't been happier . right now i crazy miss her but i know we will have a happy future together, it's worth the wait.

Tis' true. I had a lovely time with my hubby this past week. For sure was not long enough, but it was much needed and i am thankful for the time that we did have together. It had been 3 months since we had last seen each other...and that seemed like for freakin ever. We had the chance to stay in Antigua for a couple nights and just spend some time away from his 'sometimes' nosey family...that i just love to death...(really Luis, I do...) We got dressed up, went to dinner, shopped around, ate lots of food...It was just wonderful to actually be husband and one country...together...speaking english...together...did i mention together? Even if it's hot...and stuffy...and humid...and there are bugs that like to bite...and rain that comes and goes inconveniently...and there's really not much to's the together thing. We got to go see a a theater! That was exciting. That is something I missed. I think that was kind of our thing...when we weren't broke...The movies. The power went out a couple times...and it was a little warm...but it was still good...We saw Indiana Jones...Shia Leboeuf is in it...mmm...Shia...anywho...
Apparently dark rooms mean you can make out all you want...I heard lips smacking around me the whole guess in Guatemalan theaters there is no such thing as an indoor voice...
In Escuintla...where Luis lives...I'm the only white person around...Luis says "even the girls are checking you out"'s cuz i'm white...and female...holding hands with the guatemalan i call my husband. but thanks?
Anywho. I had a really good time and can't wait till i get to go again but I even more than that, I can't wait till he gets to come back and we can really get our life together going. Seriously. I love that man.

I should be sleeping

But...I'm not...So...blogging time...

Not to much has been going on. I'm almost finished with this term of school and i'm convinced that I am failing 3 out of 3's a good feeling...
I turned 21. Went to the traditional dinner with the family, which is always a hoot. Those are always a favorite. We pretty much just make fun of each other the whole time. It's all out of love. Went to dinner with the few friends I have here, but am thankful for, at the Portland City Grill. It was amazing. The service was amazing, the food...phenomenal. The view...fabulous. It just so happen to be thunder and lightening that night at we got the whole show! The birthday dessert...Mmm...I had a lot of fun. I needed it.
On another note, I work...and then work some more it seems. I'm trying to keep positive so I will want to go the next day...Some days are harder than others...I think part of it has to do with attitudes....Not just mine, but with co-workers...All I can do really is say 'oh well' and hope they realize they are bringing others down and snap out of the sass.
It's getting closer to June 11th. I can't frikin wait. It's all i need right now. Just to see my husband. I don't know how to explain the feelings I have. It's just time. I need to see him now. I hate that my emotions rule me. I can pretty much cry on a drop of a dime. I find myself to be in a much somber mood these days and almost don't know how to take myself out of it. I can keep myself busy as much as I want...but that doesn't change anything. I'm trying...but I can only do so much.
On a happier note, Maquel Weed is getting hitched at the end of June! I remember when we used to sit on my bed an play cards all night long...those where the days. Bestest of friends. I feel like she's always been strong in the church or at least somewhat more connected than me, but I admire her for that, and for the influences she had on me as a friend then and now.
I am now thinking to myself that I really should try and will write sometime day.

Nice weather, under the weather...

So...It's starting to warm up outside. The clouds pretty much disappeared this afternoon which made it even better. Here's the crap side of it. I feel like crap...That's cool... here's some nice weather with a side of headaches, sinus flares, stomachaches, weakness and no will to stay awake.
Good Story.
Well...I can hope that I start to feel better within the day or 2...It would be nice to enjoy some good weather.
ON a better note... going to June...


No joke.
It's about time!

Just a little sumin sumin...

It's been a while since I last wrote...
Luis lost his job, but at no fault of his own. We are thinking it had to do with some kind of family drama...but what can you do...He's had a couple of interviews...some sound better than others, others are closer than others...but we're crossing our fingers that it will be a job that will treat him well and the pay will be enough.
I guess it's crazy hot down there right now. Luis says he just melts sitting there...
I think I finally found some dates that I will be able to go visit him...I'm thinking in about a hopefully it won't be to crazy hot when I get down there.
Work and school are going fine for me. Same as always.
I don't seem to get out much and that means more time to clean, eat less, drink more water and starting...again... this week, GYM TIME.
We'll see how long that lasts.
I cut out fast food and soda for a start.
Except starbucks hot chocolate....that doesn't count...and regular moderation...of course...
And today when I was going to donate blood I found out my iron is 2 points low...Nothing to be alarmed about, but something work on they say.
More spinach for me!

Oo, I learned how to belay for the rock wall the other day. That was exciting. I'm stoked to work grad nights.

Luis and I are working on the first part of paperwork to send in. One step closer to having him home. I can't wait. OYE!

Sunday, April 27, 2008

I couldn't come up with anything creative...sorry...

Um...No...I didn't Not take a pic after I had my wisdom teeth removed. I'll let you visualize what that might have been like. I have been enjoying my days of sleep. Something I haven't done in a while. Come to find out vicodin knocks me out. That makes is my new best friend. In a safe, good, healthy way of course. Pain is a little bit duller today. Tried to eat pizza today...didn't work so well. Back to top ramen and cottage cheese. The pain that was on the left side before I got my teeth pulled is pretty much gone, it's the right side that's killer now. What's with that? There's no winning. I've got to work Sunday and I'm hoping all will go well. Mom is a little worried. Guess I've been a little slow...loopy...I haven't stayed awake for more than 3 hours without taking a little cat nap and she's worried I'll over work myself...sooo...yay for adventures!

Thursday, April 24, 2008


Day 2...slightly better than Day 1. I can actually swallow...kinda...I'm down to one pain pill...but right now i feel like I should be taking 3...My right side is worse than the left...and I'm pretty sure there is a piece of rice stuck in the back somewhere and I can get it cuz I can't open my mouth more then a couple centimeters. I'm fun.

Let's all get our wisdom teeth pulled...It will make you fun to.

Luis got a laugh at me when I tried to talk to him on the phone...FYI hunny...not funny...but thanks :)

I just had to let it out. Gets kind of lonely sitting here all day and not be able to talk. But. I'm good. It's almost over with.

Sunday, April 13, 2008

Just picking at my brain...

I haven't written anything for a while...But not much has gone on besides LEISHA and VAHE getting married yesterday!
Yay! It was so cute. The weather was just perfect. The Temple was beautiful and the reception was amazing and had a great turn out and there was sooo much food. They are still trying to get rid of it. Leisha looked absolutely gorgeous. Vahe was stunning. You could defiantly tell they are going to be happy together forever. I'm so ecstatic for them and wish them only the best!

It all reminded me of my hubby and I. I just want, so bad, him to be here with me. Watching everyone dance, and me not being able to dance with with Luis killed me. Luckily I have a loving brother that asked me to dance, and I love him for that. He made me feel good. Anywho...I just got to thinking...over all...that i really hate not being able to dance with my husband when I want to...cook for him when he gets home from work...go to the park with him whenever we want...hold his hand when were just standing there...sleep next to him every night...even though he snores...seriously...
I even had a hard time being around couples, I almost avoid being in those situations where I know there are going to be couples or couple there and I won't feel like going because I know I will feel upset or sad. i mean don't get me wrong, yay for couples!, it's just...I guess I'm envious in a way, and I know that sounds ridiculous and I should just get over it but at the same time I try not to let it get to me, I shouldn't let it. It's couples being couples. I just miss him so much and I want to be able to do those same couple things that I see every day. We are married and we'll be together forever, and I hope it will be HERE together Fooorr EvvEr(Think Sandlot...anyone? anyone?....) Some days are harder than others...but we find a way to push through.

It's coming in....sideways...No worries!

I went to go see the oral surgeon guy today. 3 0f 4 wisdom teeth are growing in fine for the most part... the coming in sideways...and when i say sideways...i mean it...I saw the xray....and it's pretty uncomfortable...There is a constant dull pain in my mouth from my wisdom's great.

April 23. 8.30am. I am finally getting rid of them. thank goodness.
My bottom teeth are on a nerve line or something to that effect and so it was probably bruise, meaning my lip might go numb for a while...I ask what a while is...he says 6 to 8 weeks. A while my tush. 'Yeah, be careful when you drink...ha ha ha'

Not funny.

Jerk move mr oral surgeon man. jerk move...

Beach Trip!

I got the chance to go to the beach with Erica and her family who stayed in a cute little pent house in Seaside. Above is the resort we stayed at. It's right on the beach. And the place we stayed is on the first floor, one with the windows in the corner...yeah... I've never slept so good. The bed....amazing...sheets felt like a frikin cloud. I was nice just to get away from home and work and even family for a night. The only thing that could have made it perfect would to have Luis there with me...of course.

In other news...
A couple days...slash...a week ago Luis had an incident at the gas station where he works at and pretty much things have been falling to crap up till now. He wrote a letter to the big boss people and actually got a reply back and they asked for his resume and so we are hoping for good things. Possibly a better job, although he is doing ok with his assistant shift manager job...or whatever he calls it, i'm sure he will correct me...But things could always be better.

Cross your fingers!

Today...I feel tired...

And if i were a cat...that's how I would look. Pretty cute huh?

No naps for me or else I won't sleep tonight. Got to keep myself occupied...

We did the easter basket thing today with the family. Kate SWEARS she saw the Easter Bunny outside and made me go look right away. She saw the bunnies ears behind my car. Ends up that the girls easter baskets were in dad's truck and dad left the house door open so some how the Easter bunny got inside and left a whole bunch of eggs. Kate and Annie were ecstatic. The bunny is really good at hiding the boys baskets...took everyone a good couple of minutes before they found them in the freezer...We decorated eggs...made a mess...always fun. Kate ate her right after she was done. She's a character :)

Good old Easter Bunny.

Tomorrow should be a blast....I use extreme sarcasim. I love my grandmas...But they can be so crazy sometimes!
The grandmas have a Easter/Celebrate Dad's Birthday Party planned for tomorrow...
We'll see how it goes...

Money? What money?

I try not to worry about it, same with Luis. But when it comes down to not being able to call one another cuz we're low on's just ridiculous...I'm trying not to feel frustrated and reassuring myself that everything will turn out just fine, but it's time like these that just drag me down.

Happy thoughts...happy thoughts...


Let's do this.

We're gonna try this out...

It's hard living in 2 different places. People ask how we are doing and managing and some want to hear from Luis(or Neto) so I thought this would be a nice little way to keep up with both of us. Yay!
