I can't believe I've written 200 blogs posts. Whew! That's a big number. Two hundred posts mostly about me. Who knew I had so much to say?

Last weekend I went through my blog, watched all the videos, looked at the pictures, and thought about all the things that have happened to me during the last 199 posts. I've been married, divorced, happy, sad, furious, crazy, giggly, sick, mean, and every emotion you could think of off the top of your head. 

I'm so glad I started this blog. I'm glad I decided to not hold back. When I'm gone, people will know the real me. The person behind the words. Even though I named my blog "Una Mentira Perfecta", there is a lot of truth here. Some of it's not at all pretty, but all of it is me. Thank you for reading.

More Reflections

*My body is shutting down.

*I'm happy that my professional blog on the Common Core is doing so well. Every Child. Every Day. The Common Core.

*My ex is an evil man. I wish I never met him. I was stupid to have married him.

*Most of  my stress comes from my lack of restful sleep at night.

*I wish I lived in Alaska right this minute.

*I am currently obsessed with the idea of relocating to Alaska.

*My daughter makes me smile.

*Mi sobrinito es un jefecito.

*Right now I have a huge bruise under my left eye and bruises all over my right arm. Rough night last night.

*Craigslist is a goldmine. Especially the personals. It's replaced World Star Hip Hop as my guilty pleasure. «No more CL after the recent murder in Pennsylvania. Scary!»

*I'm over Facebook. I will use it for Bliss by Monica posts from now on.

*Never let anyone blackmail you. Ever.

*I am not emotionally ready for the holidays yet.

*90% of my work clothes are from the INC brand at Macy's.

*Supporting a child at a private college in a big city is extremely expensive.

*I have tried my best to be the best Mom I can. I hope mi hija knows how much I love her.

*When I die, I want to be remembered as someone who was kind, intelligent, funny, a wonderful Mom, and a good Catholic.

*My dog Coda is part of the family. She's my hairy little companion. I'm taking her to Alaska and she will wear her coat and sweaters happily.

That is all,

You can run, but you can't hide...

Thank you for finally admitting what I have always known.

Never love a man who has no respect for you, his family, or himself.
