Motivational Monday: How To Get Over The Hurt

If you're a regular reader of New York Chica (thank you!!!), you know that I never post about politics or any religious beliefs but after going to church this past Sunday and hearing the Pastor talk about how to get over hurt feelings, I felt like I needed to share it on my blog. When someone hurts your feeling, it's natural for the first thing to feel is revenge.  I get it. You were hurt by someone and now you want them to feel the same.  I've been there way too many times. But guess … [Read more...]

Last Post of The Year – Goodbye 2012, Hello 2013!

I know this blog has had many crickets these past few months. It's not my fault. I still love to blog.  But it's just that I'm one tired mommy who wants to come home after a hard day's work and just spend time with my family.  And the funny part is that I have about 20 titles ready for my little ol' blog so it's not like I don't have anything to say here -- I have LOTS to say. I just need time. Time is a major factor for me.  I'm sure it's a major factor for everyone but some people know … [Read more...]

Ramblings: An Update on Life…

Where do I even start? My mind is going a mile a second and I can't even get my thoughts processed correctly these days.  It's been almost nine months since I started working full time and I've got to be honest, it's been difficult for me.  On top of my thyroid condition (I HATE it!), being anemic and feeling tired all the time - it's hard for me!  It's especially difficult knowing that my kids won't have much of a summer because both parents are working full time, five days a week, to get … [Read more...]

My New Obsession: Zinio For iPad App

Thanks to my fellow blogger and friend Migdalia from Latina on a Mission for introducing Zinio on her blog. She tweeted about one of her posts showcasing a free subscription of Cosmopolitan for the Zinio app a few weeks ago and I was curious to know what was Zinio all about. Before her post, I never heard of Zinio. And like so many people, when I see the word FREE, I jump at the chance to see if I can get my hands on it. Lol I clicked on her link and there it was -- a full year … [Read more...]

Family Matters…..or does it?

When it comes to family and the bond families have with one another, it's no doubt that you should be able to count on your family when the chips are down, right?  In my heart, family matters. It's the main piece to any puzzle. Unfortunately, that isn't always the case. When I was a kid, I grew up in a tight-knit family. I saw fights, arguments, crying and lots of love in between it all.  No matter the issue, there was a bond that I always saw that was very important. Yes, people gave … [Read more...]

I Won An iPad!

Ha! my dreams. Okay, seriously, I had a dream that I won an iPad last night. I woke up this morning so happy but than I realize it was just a dream. Boo hoo! Ever since its debut, I've been dreaming about owning an iPad. I've heard some people say it's just an iPod Touch but bigger. Well of course it is but it's much better! The screen is humongous and it's just the right size to view movies, which I love to do. Can you tell I want one really bad? Hopefully I get a chance to … [Read more...]
