1. I love the hunger games books! They have a great world building and I'm learning a lot of good writing!

2. Sott, my instructor in my writing class, said to me that my current problem is my narrative voice that maybe is getting lost between all this two languages so I have to find my narrative voice in English. Something that the first days seemed impossible to me, there are a lot of things I don't know, many rules of grammar, a lot of words I don't know to manipulate them and create my own voice. But I know I have one and have to find it in English! My husband told me why I was on a hurry, to take one step at a time, to continue studying, to keep reading a lot, to see more movies and programs in English and to find someone to talk with in English. And that if that takes me a lot, I should take that time and do it because is my dream and I choose a hard dream.(Wait time something hard for me) So I'm back on track. Any suggestions for finding my narrative voice are welcome as well as ways to improve my vocabulary. Oh and if you want to talk with someone that haven't talked in English for a long time, here I am!

3. I’m almost recovered from my cold but now I have Carlos sick! Oh my, we have a lot of viruses around here.

4. My little boy is starting to sleep all night it seems that finally we found a way to control his reflux, well at least for a few days!

5. Yesterday my husband surprised me with the new CD of Roxette. Maybe you don't know but I'm a huge fan. In Madrid he once but ticket for a small and intimate concert and it was perfect. Hearing again Marie's voice brought back to my mind this song:
Roxette, Almost Unreal


I know that the Mario Bros film was terrible but the song is great. Here I put you the lyrics:
Babe, come in from the cold and put that coat to rest.
Step inside, take a deep breath, and do what you do best.
Yes, kick off them shoes and leave those city streets.
I do believe love came our way, and fate did arrange for us to meet.

I love when you do that hocus pocus to me.
The way that you touch, you've got the power to heal.
You give me that look, it's almost unreal. It's almost unreal.

Hey, we can't stop the rain, let's find a place by the fire.
Sometimes I feel, strange as it seems,
you've been in my dreams all my life.

I love when you do that hocus pocus to me.
The way that you touch, you've got the power to heal.
You give me that look, it's almost unreal. It's almost unreal.

It's a crazy world out there. It's a crazy...
Let's hope our prayers are in good hands tonight.

Oh, I love when you do that hocus pocus to me.
The way that you touch, you've got the power to heal.
You give me that look, it's almost unreal.
It's almost unreal, so unreal.

Yea come on and do the hocus pocus to me.
The way that you touch, you've got the power to heal.
You give me that look, it's almost unreal. It's almost unreal, yea.

It's almost unreal. Do the hocus pocus to me. Do the hocus pocus...
Happy Weekend!
