3 Years

Image
I havent posted in my blog since November of last year. Everytime I try to write, life gets in the way or I am just too tired to stay up and write. Next month on June 11th, my daughter will be 3. It's been a long and hard 3 years. Every time things look up, something happens. And right now things are scary. Even when I get good news, I'm cautious. The phrase "being a single mother is hard" is an absolute understatement. It's hard, exhausting, challenging, scary, lonely. But it is also rewarding, loving, awesome and fulfilling.  I made a promise to myself that this year would be our year. And even though we've had some major setbacks, I still believe it is. Things could be alot worse. I pray everyday. And one of the things that have taken a hit the most is my faith. But day by day it gets stronger and looking at my daughter I know I can't give up. I can't give up on myself and I definitely can't give up on God. Especially when He hasn't given u…

Cuba WILL be Free

I woke up Saturday morning to my daughter waking me up letting me know she was hungry. I fixed breakfast and looked at my Facebook for a minute and saw the news. Fidel Castro was dead. For a second I thought it wasn't real. But every post on my news feed was about it. The news sank in. I felt joy, happiness and relief when I realized it was real. He really was dead. He should have died years ago. He didn't deserve to live as long as he did. I am thankful to have almost all my friends despise Castro. Some don't understand why I hate him so much since I'm not Cuban. Others just say ok and don't really care for me to explain all the atrocities that he committed against Cubans and non Cubans as well. I have come across a few posts online praising Fidel. For the life of me I don't know how someone could do that. The crimes he committed are very well documented and I blame the media and their obsession with painting Cuba as a paradise under the Castros dictatorship. …

President-elect Donald Trump and Politics: My Thoughts

Tuesday night Donald Trump won the 2016 Presidential Election. Honestly, I was surprised as many others were.  A man with no political experience defeating a woman with years of experience. I didn't vote for Trump. I don't like him. But I didn't like Clinton either. Clinton had way too many scandals and lies that came out and there is certainly no denying the impact they had on the election and her deafeat. Trump, well my personal opinion on him is that he built a campaign around shit talking about others. Of all the things he said he's going to accomplish, very few will be attainable. I noticed he has sharply changed his tone after this election. Because no one wants the leader of the free world mocking people with disabilites, talking shit about women sexually, etc.Next year he will be our President. He will make decisions for this country. That worries me . The leader of the free world has to have not only good diplomacy and relations with countries and our allies, …

No Human Rights for Cubans

President Obama went to Cuba yesterday.  I have purposefully refused to watch media coverage of it. If you know about Cubans struggle for human tights then you know how the mainstream media will spin his trip. They will give lies about Cuba. Show pictures that are staged by the Castro regime. What they will not be showing is the scores of Cuban dissidents beaten before Obama's visit. This visit is a slap in the face to Cubans. The so called leader of the free world visiting a communist country that oppresses it's people. Not one word out of his mouth about freedom or human rights. It's pathetic. Not one single thing the Obama administration has done has helped the Cuban people. Loosening travel restrictions hasn't helped Cubans gain their rights. And it never will. And Obama knows that. This trip is just a slap in the face to Cubans and Cuban Americans exiled from their homeland. Cubans are beaten, jailed, raped, tortured and threatened on a daily basis by the Castro r…

A Dark Anniversary

12 years ago on Wednesday, the Cuban dictatorship jailed 75 freedom fighters in what was called the "Cuban Black Spring". They were jailed for speaking out against the brutality of the Castro regime and the human rights abuses that they were committing against Cubans. Please take a minute to click on the link below to learn more about it.Cuba will always have a special place in my heart and I think about the Cuban people everyday.On a personal note: I wish I was able to post more but motherhood, a full time job, and other things take all my time up. I wish I could post about Cuba more. I will try my best. God bless everyone.

No More Che

Tomorrow, October 9th, is No More Che Day. Its the day when that ruthless piece of shit received justice. It disgusts me that to this day people idolize that bastard. He murdered thousands of innocent Cubans. And also murdered tons of foreigners. The liberal media hails him as a revolutionary hero. That is far from the truth. He was a racist, communist pig who executed innocent people without any type of trial. He made numerous statements against blacks and yet idiots like Jay Z wear his face on a shirt. The world is a better place without Che Guevara. But it will be an even better place when the Castro's leave this earth. Because they play a huge part in the brainwashing of people. They brainwash people into believing lies about Che. The truth is plain and simple. Che was and always be a filthy communist murderer. And tomorrow we will celebrate that he is no longer able to kill anyone else. He is dead. Nothing will ever take away the pain and anguish that he has caused the Cuban …

Labor and Delivery

I thought i would do a blog post about my experience with labor and delivery. I'll make it easy and go in the order that everything happened. Being a first time mom, and never taking classes in labor or delivery, i was unprepared for how painful it could get. I was also unprepared for any complications.Labor:My contractions started at 1am on June 10th. It didnt hurt that bad at first. I didnt realize they were contractions until they got more powerful. I took some tylenol thinking that i had ate something bad and it was a stomach virus. Tylenol didnt do shit. At first, the contractions were every 15 mins. By 7am, they were every 5 minutes. I didnt sleep at all that night. Around 11am i went to L&D and they hooked me up and verified that they were contractions and that i was 3cm dialated. But apparently i wasnt in active labor because my water hadnt broke yet. They had me walk around the halls for 2 hours to get me dilated more. I was in so much pain that i cheated and went in …
