The Google+ gestapo is not allowing me to post nothing because someone either reports my post of my gofundme.com as spam or because the amount of posting was high. However, I was just trying to get more people involve in my cause; even here I do the exact same thing of posting constantly. Therefore, I am not getting block to post here and I understand that if someone do not like what they see, they just need to block the posting itself, not screw the person reporting it. If you have Google+ and able to post there, please, post in my behalf about my gofundme page, the more people see it the sooner another donation can be accomplish, because as I posted recently and it stays in the posting this I will lose the car. As is; is hard to get a job close by without a car in Dallas, second I cannot continue doing what I was doing because I cannot take in person interpretation without a car and money do not roll without it and finally, the next thing I am afraid and I know is going to happen is, that if Denise gets rely sick like it happen in the past, I have no way to take her in to the hospital this is not something I would put her true. But it will happen, therefore please do not take a minute to think just share it add your own comments, and if you have a way to donate even the smallest amount it will help tremendously please.

Does the cat is trying to tell us somethiing

“Side story” I know this will sound strange but do you believe in coincidence or six sense from animals, if you do let me tell you, last night we were planning on going to do groceries at 12 midnight, once my wife food card was reload. So we have a cat, once we were ready to go out, she was in the bedroom once at the door but without opening it yet, she came running something that she never does; she sat at the door like saying no guys do no leave or you are not supposed to go right now anywhere , which we thought was very unusual, for the cat to act this way. But did not care much, we got to the car in the parking lot, the car did not start at all, so we went back to the house very hungry both but we did not leave. In the morning I left my wife sleep until 10:50 or so, that way we could try to get a neighbor to jump start the car and can get some work done myself, once she was ready we go to the parking lot but no one close to ask, I thought let’s try if it does not start we will stop someone in the parking lot and we ask to be jump start, put the key in the ignition and BAAAMMM! It starts right away. I think the cat try to WARN us that something was going to happen by going so late to Wall Mart may be a robbery or an accident or even stop by police for something so dumb like a tail light. But considering the insurance, just have like 4 days expire it could be a problem, any way something to talk about right.

Judgeing or not judgeing that is the question?



I ask my wife if she has had any replays from her sharing the link for the donation page I have on gofundme.com with friends and acquaintances, she said to me that one of them has said something like. Oh well if he have better job he could afford to see a dentist or if he have better hygiene he will not lose his teeth. And I am not quoting anyone in particular. She does not recall the exact comment, because she deletes the actual comment, which I do not understand why, she deleted or maybe if she did it because she found it as judgmental as I did. 

I find quite offensive, disturbing and disappointing that a friend or acquaintance think that low of me. When they do not even know me well,  or what we being going thought the  past years, or how much of a struggle is to be in one income as we been, especially when is not lack of hygiene. 

I was brushing my teeth look at my wedding photo I have teeth there. Now when the first one fell off while I was brushing no pain or nothing it just fell off.  And in regard of a job well is not like I am not doing everything in my power to support my wife and I, evermore, so, I keep food in our table and a roof over our head.   

Last but not least I would love to hear what all you think of this. And if you think judging a person is something that should not upset someone deep inside. I personally do not like to do it myself, to judge someone or anyone's circumstances but to try to put myself in their shoes for one moment, before I even think on judging but that is me. But if I am on the wrong please tell me. at the very end of the gofundme page is an option to contact me or leave a comment so please do so I will appreciated that thank you again.

This is been a long absence on my end



Happen to be busy  working and taking care of many things in life that do not stop or allow me to get near the computer much to blog, however, I am here still alive not so well but alive is been so much going on that I do not know where to begin.
Last time I said or blog that my process was moving steady well I became finally a permanent resident of the United States of America coming finally out of the shadows, overtime got busy finding a job getting a job as Spanish Medical and non-Medical Certified Interpreter working for a company that is been wonderful to work with, moreover, keeping me busy going to clinics hospitals etc.

A year after my anniversary of becoming permanent resident got assaulted and rob coming back from the corner store next to my apartments so I report this to the USCIS and even with the police report I had to re-apply for the green card and pay 450 to get the application submitted and again re-fingerprinted now again waiting time for it job wise interpretation is slowing down lately and unfortunately got to the point I have to have a second job to keep things going.

With my wife not been able to work since all the load is now mine and thing are getting harder but like anything there is times up and times down now is one of this down times find a job beside the one of interpretation CSR front desk in a hotel and came with more and more mouth problems I happen to be losing my natural teeth but you will read more in the link I will put at the end please do not forget to share it if you can or if you can help it will be wonderful.

Going back to the CSR I have only one molar left in the left top side all the bottom teeth and a molar on the same side but on the lower jaw which increasingly got more lose overtime and infected, finally when I go it out the infection sets in, and I did look like Jay Leno from Saturday night because the swelling.

I lose one day at work, and the next thing that happen was  my car start failing mechanically, which I thought that is not a problem, well I have to keep working no matter what, so I will take the bus.

Then the following day my wife end on the hospital due to an emergency, and lose another day; a total of two days missing in action as they said, however, that cost me my job In the hotel and because the issue with the car not working I knew it will affect the other job I have as interpreter, especially because if I am requested for an emergency, I will not be able to take the assignment(s) and second of all the distances for any other jobs will not have the transportation or public transportation. Sadly I do not make much to be paying or spending money for a taxi cab, so I decided to start looking for work around my location near home but no luck at all.
All of sudden I receive a phone call; to my surprise was someone that I just recently add to my LinkedIn network offering me a job?

What are the odds of that in such short notice and time specially because the offer she did to me was in regard of telephonic interpretation like she knew i did not have a car, even more nor she gave me the classical response “well if you do not have a land line we cannot work with you” to my question in regard of a cellphone use instead of a landlines but instead she said as long you have a working phone even if it is a cellphone we can work with you. Which came as a blessing in disguise, because I will not have to use my car first and second I will still generating income mean time and even if I find a regular job, this came like a ring to a finger.

So that is what is been going on guys, I am sorry for not coming forward to tell you everything that is been going on; but there you have it a long story make it short, there is more to come hopefully. Now going back to the link I was talking about above I make a gofundme.com page in order to assist with the increasing expenses that dental work is causing, and the need for a better oral health and better health overall.

I already have a heart attack and all because of this, sometimes we do not contemplate or have in consideration the consequences of not attending this on time, not having good oral health and or how can affect your overall health in general. And it is unfortunate. I have to take care of this more than ever because my mouth is what I use to work with, so I have to take care of it.

Please, please I am appealing to your and conscience share this link if you please and can, or if you can help I will be absolutely thankful. Then finally here it is:

Another small step accomplished

Finally I am glad to inform that my process is moving steady and slowly but surely however every day that passed by feels like an eternity sometimes I wish the waiting part was over I am part of the system I've been fingerprinted and photographed by USCIS. (United States Citizen and immigration service) I am hopeful, in the following weeks, I will hear or receive a letter stating my appointment with the apartment above mention it.


Sadly, even with this should be a happy moment, trouble arose my heart, because my dearest wife is not doing so well health wise. Her doctor is want to get her off her job for good and the reason is here legs are having a serious case of cellulites, even with the medications sometimes she is in a lot of pain and if she suffer I suffer with her as well.

So this short lines is to ask if you believe in the power of prayers prayed for her I personally don't ask you to do the same for me not because he will not be appreciated but because she needed the most.

God bless you all happy blog's and nevertheless, positive thinking that any trouble have solution with the prayers and faith on a higher power does the matter what culture you are or what beliefs you have you have to believe that is something in this universe bigger than you bless you all sincerely your fellow blogger Armando Abreu.

Did you ever feel as you where in limbo?

According to the definitions, I found. Limbo is:

First, Often capitalized; an abode of souls that are according to Roman Catholic theology barred from heaven because of not having received Christian baptism.

Second; A: a place or state of restraint or confinement; B: a place or state of neglect or oblivion “Proposals kept in limbo”; C: an intermediate or transitional place or state; D: a state of uncertainty.

Being myself a Catholic this definitions are the closest things we know. We were taught at home, as much as in church about limbo; however, for some reason, my understanding of things was a little off for my younger age.

It was not until my teenage years, when I finally understood the concept. In addition, I was experiencing, not only physical changes in my life, but also on my psychic ability of seeing and hearing, what others can’t. “On time to time” It is like being in the Limbo and I will probably use this; c: final answer. Sometimes feeling isolated or like you do not belong.

In my daily life, it is sometimes like a juggling act with chainsaws in which the minimal distraction can cost you death, pain and suffering.

As Mexican married for three years and a half to an American citizen, it also can make you feel in Limbo. I will try to explain it the best way I can. It is not because we do not love each other, because we do. Most of the feeling comes from the isolation and racial discrimination caused by the lack of information, knowledge and understanding; with this last one, I will add up. “You should walk a mile in my shoes”

Right at this moment, I am happy to say I will be soon a resident of United States. Nevertheless, even becoming legal to live and work will not change the undeniable and painful truth, that every time we hear, watch or read a racial comment it will make us feel like in the Limbo. However, when we come out of limbo we will be stronger.

Let us review this if you ever felt like you do not belong or being rejected by any means, either because the color of your skin or your personal beliefs, religion or any other reason. Think of Limbo not only as the definition above said, think it as a retreat, where you can get stronger, inform, educated, with better understanding, compassion and forgiveness.

As I mentioned it on my last post the law of attraction, it is a universal law. If you think positive, it will bring positive into your life. However if you think negative the law of attraction will bring negative things into your life repeatedly.

What does "out and about" really mean?

Personally, to me means is taking care of many things I would much rather ignore, like the undeniable truth of reality. Every one needs to face it. Otherwise, it will turn around and bite you in the butt. Nevertheless, we procrastinate about it and we refuse to believe many of the things, we are letting go for not being active in our day-to-day life.

Some people will say, “I wish the day had an extra hour to have enough time to do my errands.” Others will say, “All you need is to organize yourself time wise” and others may not even worry about saying anything to you at all because they are to worried about being out and about themselves.

The simplest way to say it might be “mine your own business”, which sounds rude and selfish. The reason why I say this is because let us face it. There is too much pain and suffering around us.

Oil prices raised and fall, unsure markets. Economically speaking.














Different natural like hurricanes, tsunamis, floods,  and man-made disasters, good example BP oil spill, which will make us, desensitize as human beings.

Yes, we have been having a lot of time on our hands to think on the meaning of it. In addition, I should say the deepest meaning of “Out and about”.

Not just doing our own things, but also helping others doing their own things, proving the helping hand finding solutions to common problems and stop being intolerant. It is too easy to blame others of what we are not doing than to blame the real villains here, “Our fears”.

If the phrase “out and about”, was properly broken down in two parts, and get basic meaning. I will do it the following way. OUT: looking and reaching out for others with the same ideals of greatness, and the belief that everything has a solution, also learn more what the power and law of attraction does because these will bring to you what you're asking for. ABOUT: on the move to find understanding all around or on all sides of the feelings of others movement to or among many different places, beliefs and cultures without negative taught.

After all, when somebody asked you what have you been doing and your answer is “out and about” think if you have been doing any of those things. Regardless your answer, it will be always your answer in addition, regardless of what I think. Are you reaching out and about others?

Note from the author:

My prolonged absence on the blog is being due to personal family and medical reasons I hope I will be able to continue blogging on a regular basis thanks and blessings to all.

Snowy weather and a weird paradox:

Here, I am again sitting at the computer trying to bring some different contents of text to my readers. That way, I do not sound like I am only asking for economical support to become a resident, and ask every time for more readers.

On February 11, 2010 I was snuggle up in my covers in a good sleep and that all stop when my

my wife’s phone rang at 6:45 am here it was her supervisor asking her how soon she could come in to work because of the weather. I looked outside and it was snowing hard. It is not every day here in Texas that we see snowy days especially eight inches of snow that was expected where my wife and I live in Texas.

I took my wife into work that morning and I came back home and I knew I had to walk the dog. These kinds of days I do not enjoy because she enjoys the snow and she forgets to do her doggy business and I have to spend at least more than 30 minutes in the snow.

While my wife was at work, which I had no idea when she was coming home and there is a chance she is not coming home until the next day. I have express to everyone in one of my blogs that how much I appreciate my wife. I do not have words to describe, but if someone is making all the money in the household and she put in many hours at work and of course, it takes a toll on her physically and mentally.

One day she came to me and said baby, if it is okay with you can I have a cat? Now my wife loves cats I am beginning to wonder if she would take any animal in if she could just to rescue it that is her personality she has a big heart for anyone or any animal. Unfortunately, I am highly allergic to some type of cats. While my wife was at work, I decided to sculpture a cat in the snow with whiskers and a tail. I called my wife up and I said baby you ask me for a cat, so guess what we have one on the porch waiting for you when you come home. Her reply was well because it is cold why don’t you bring it in and let it have a warm place and give the cat some food. I knew at this time my wife was clueless on what I was really telling her and I told her honey the cat is frozen. I did not want to go in details but I knew she was not thrilled to hear that her husband called her and said that there is a frozen cat on the porch waiting for her to get home.


  
There is a picture of it.
 
Well while she was on the phone, she told me that she had to work until the next day, which she said she could not give a time when she will be off work however; she will call me and keep me updated on what time. My wife loves these kind of days when it snows hard because she grabs all the overtime she can get her hands on.



On Friday the 12, my wife calls me at 1pm and says ok please come and get me from work I am so ready to come home now. My wife sounded exhausted, I know what was on her mind, and that was a shower and a bed, which, she knew that was not going to happen because she had to go to the group home that she originally works at and fill out her time card and paperwork. While she was there I decided to make a snow dog unfortunately, I did not have my camera with me so I can take a picture.

We got back home and I knew she felt great to be back home because with her being gone for over 30 hours she did look exhausted and when she seen the frozen cat she started to laugh. You could see a big relief in her face knowing it was not a real cat. Well she ate some dinner, took a shower which she took a long time in that shower which, is common for her then at 8 pm she went to sleep I do not think her head hit the pillow she was out cold. While she was in bed I decided to go outside and sculpture some more.

I went out with the dog onto the pool area of the apartment complex and let the dog play free on the snow meanwhile, on one of the patio tables. I started the creation of the peak of old sculptures and I made the Sphinx of Egypt and the 3 pyramids of Giza, Egypt. It really took me around an hour to an hour and a half just to do the Sphinx that pyramids they were not that bad and here's a picture of them.

That Saturday morning I got up and went outside to check if they survived because the sun was out and was starting to melt the snow away. I came back in and told my wife that I had a crazy idea about making the Roman Coliseum and I wanted to do it before the snow completely melted away. Therefore, I grabbed my craving tools, went to the pool area, and did my sculpture on the second table. Here is the picture of the Roman Coliseum that I sculpture.

Now, the paradox is that each table on the pool area on the apartment complex. It is separated by the pool. Paradoxically in the geography of Egypt and Rome only thing that divides them is the Mediterranean Sea. I never plan it that way, but the personal on the office make a comment.

I hope you enjoy the pictures and the blog that I have written. Nevertheless, I keep asking you to recommend my blog to your follower’s friends, family members. Everyone you can. That way I can accomplish my dream to become a resident of United States. If you really think I am talented is just half of what you can see. I am a sincere person. I do not lie to know one. I do not like liars so if you reply to this blog. Tell me the God honest true.

Finally, I thank all my readers and actual followers of this blog. I am grateful for all of you God bless you all sincerely yours with all my heart Armando Abreu.
