90 Millas

90 Millas is a new Spanish album by Gloria Estefan. She isn't usually my favorite but this project includes a bunch of old Cuban musicians and some really terrific music. It makes me feel...I don't a real Cuban. There is one song in particular that has gotten under my skin. The name of it is "Me Odio" which for you non-Spanish speakers means "I hate myself." Before this spirals in a negative way it must be known that the song is about hating myself because of being so ridiculously in love with a man. A man that you love deeper with every beat of your heart. Every second away from him is painful because the love is running through your blood and makes every thing brighter, bigger, better. The only reason she hates herself is because she had convinced herself at some point that she was incapable of this type of love or the ability to really commit to another person.

Well dear readers, this song is on repeat in the mighty Jeep because I identify to much with this girl. I am overwhelmed with love. A boy has entered my life and changed it, forever. No other person I have ever cared for can measure up. He has changed everything. I want to be with him every second of everyday. As if an earthquake has hit his kiss makes my body tremble and the after shocks of a smile that just won't quit.

I don't normally blog about love. I usually keep this sort of thing close to the vest but this boy makes me want to scream from mountaintops. I had no idea that love could be like this.

The House

Sorry for the delay on the house! Life has been a delightful roller coaster....These are the living room

When I moved in everything was white and freaking peach. It was tough as I mentioned before the front room had awful carpet that was covering lovely hardwood floors. The dining room also had bad carpet that covered flat gray concrete. I have made a few changes.

Each room has been painted with the help of a team of friendly painting folks. My dad and I torn up the carpets. My parents painted and spruced up the kitchen cabinets and recently my dad laid tile in the dining room.
