Sorry for the absence!

My friend Ana Paula.

Hey all!! I've missed you!!! I have lots of excuses to tell you why I haven't been blogging.

Monday I arrived from my trip to my home country: Argentina!!
It was an amazing time with family and some friends I got to see, but most important, I passed 3 finals!! Wooohoo! Now I have only 3 papers left to write and send and hopefully get my BA diploma!

The time with family was amazing. This time I focused more on my parents and sisters (my brother wasn't present for various reasons). In previous trips I would be all about seeing friends and sometimes people weren't very responsive, each one has its own life and a lot of my old friends didn't seem to want to change their schedule for me. It's ok. I told myself this time I'd send an email with my phine number, whoever wants to see me will call. I got to see a couple of good girl friends :)My nephew Ian!

But the most important, I got to see my baby nephew!!! It was a great time to reconnect with my baby sister -she's 19 now- who had Ian ten months ago. Needless to say, I am in love with the baby!!Laura, Ian and me :)

My sister Jazmin, her boyfriend and the baby moved in the little apartment in the front of my parents house (not that I am completely in agreement with them living together and not being married) and it was a great opportunity to see Ian every-single-day! Oh, how I love him!!

I didn't see the rest of my family until I was done with tests, I didn't want to risk it too much.
BUT, the general consensus was: I need to lose weight. No, don't get them wrong, it was tough love. They're right. I am 40 lbs overweight and more and more every time they see me, so for them it must be a shock to see me bigger and bigger, and I am only 28.

So, yesterday, I joined weight watchers. HAVE YOU BEEN IN IT?? I find it hard and complicated! I hope it gets easier!
