2007 so far

Obviously the blog has not seen much use this year. But as for keeping this thing on life support, I'll figure I will post some stuff.

News! Thursday is the new Friday, I'm back working on a Federal project - a hiatus since Feb. 2006, another near-full Fall semester, and Rutgers is BCS ranked this year. I have proof, they sent me a merchandise catalog.

Christmas is coming....

I'm thinking that on the 23rd we'll have a "pre-christmas" gathering. Marcie has work so after she gets here we could have our dinner. Maybe that day we could go to Borders in the afternoon as we have been doing our past christmasses. Then the sat. after christmas we'll have our family party at tia titi's. I hope this is ok with everybody.

I've been having a great time with all you kids visiting me. I really enjoy and I'm so proud of all of you.

Hi everyone, that's what I felt when I had all of you here. Real Joy!! I know it was not easy with all the stuff going on in the house but we still seemed to have a good time. I can't wait to be in the other house where we will have more room. Each of you will have your own bed, and a place to put your clothes and there is plenty of space to watch tv play games etc. So, this way, whenever any or all of you want to come home there is always your own place to relax and play, etc. For papi and me, it will be good not to work so hard in the garden, it was getting to be too much. Today, Bruno worked in the kitchen and bathroom, we hope we could sell the house soon.
I can't wait for Xmas.

what a relief!!

Hi kids, last night was the first night in a very long while I slept peacefully, of course not through the night since you really can't with her. papi called her at 10, she finally showed up at 11 thirty. she was so nice, i remembered the three words her case worker used to describe her before she came here, she is a "liar, manipulator and an instigator" now, i may be getting paranoid but you know with her you just don't know. i could have sworn i heard an guy's voice that woke me up at 3am, all of sudden. i got up and just walked to the kitchen pretending i wanted water. i checked the garage and she never leaves that door closed but it was, so i couldn't see. i went back to the bedroom and i heard her just like she was talking on the phone. probably a half hour later, papi wakes up and says 'what's that?" i told him it was jamilah probably talking on the phone. It was not fisa's snoring. Now, when she first came here she explained a few of "her rules" one of them was she liked blinds closed, room in darkness. one day when he was here, they were out in the front by the windows, i found it odd. then these past few days, she started leaving her window wide open with the curtain to the sides. papi told her that if she was going to do that to leave her door closed because we had the heat on. in the morning the window was not open but unlocked. so...i'll probably never know and now i just don't care!!

i love you all so much and can't wait to just give you all a big hug!!

more news

papi is staying home tomorrow PTL. thank you kids for everything. Hopefully they will pick her up tomorrow. If not it's friday. Phil and Javi if you are here when they pick her up, and if her friends come, please be cool. I don't want anything. Remember we are not like them.


latest news

Hi everyone, ok, bill the caseworker called Jamilah's mom to see if she would take her in. She said NO. That she could not help her. now, she actually called felipe (the mother) to thank him for what we have done for Jamilah. Oh well, Bill said there might be an opening where they want to put her, by tomorrow. I am going to ask papi to stay home, I hope he can do that. I hope this will end soon.

Love you

thank you

thank you everyone and I'm sorry for putting you through this. I know things will turn out fine. I just got a call from papi, they are trying to find a place for her, they called her mom to see if she would take her. I don't know if she will but the problem now is that now she will know we are doing this. she is still not back. so rememeber if she is here on friday we just act normal, it will be ok because she is nice as long as we don't tell her anything, and we let her do whatever she wants.

lov eyou all very much



if you want to her check her website, it was toned down from the horrible pornography she had. Papi asked her to. you couldn't believe the pictures and other stuff.

I guess I am that stupid

I wrote an entry and then deleted it. It just said this: DYFS told us that we cannot take her over there. That they are looking for a place for her. It's extremely hard because they have already sent her to all the places they could and they have thrown her out from everyone.. Now, it probably will be a juvenile facility. It could be today, up to two weeks!! Hopefully not, papi, after reading her webpage, told them about us being scared. They said if something happens we call the police. Meanwhile she has to stay here. So, if she is here on friday, please please act as if nothing is happenning. She is very nice as long as everthing goes the way she wants it. Everyday something happens, she just called and said she was with her friends at Eric's house, hanging out. So, she can do anything, she'll be happy until she leaves. yes, I am afraid when she leaves but, God knows that we did this to help a person and HE will not do anything to harm us, you can all be sure of that. I am sorry for putting you all through all this, but specially Marcie, it has been really hard on her. So, Ihope you all appreciate the sister you have.

ANd thank you Phil!



i deleted the items i wanted to delete. i'm not THAT stupid....
