annual housewarming dinner...

It's that time of year again!!! I've been having housewarming dinner/parties for the past 7 years...there have been a few years in which i've moved twice within a year. You see i've moved 10 times within the last 7 years. I got kicked out of my parents because i spent a weekend with the boyfriend...yeah the same one that i can't seem to get over, the same one that i blame for me being so scared of relationships, the same one i blame for thinking every man is the same...y eso no se hace si no estas casada!!! I come from your traditional mexican family. Anyway, ever since, i'v been moving, trying to find MY home. I think i finally found it though. This is the first time i've stayed at a place for two years in a row!!! YAY!!!! for me!!! I mean what else can i ask for, i have kachito, i have a balcony, i live close to the beach and lakeshore dr., i WALK to work when i'm not riding my bike. Yeah i'll be staying at this place for a while.

So anyway, last year when i had my housewarming party, my friends were asking where i was going to be moving to next. I said "not anymore, this is it guys!!". They were dissappointed because according to them they were getting use to it. So i decided to have an annual housewarming dinner!! I sent out the e-vite a few weeks ago and got great responses. i love having my friends over for dinner!! nothing makes me happier than to see my friends enjoying themselves at my place. I grew up with a large family...four brothers and four sisters...so i will find any excuse to have people over. AND I love to cook...was brought up to be a housewife as one of friends tells me...and it makes me happy that my friends enjoy my cooking. I decided to take tomorrow off from work to get started on the cleaning and shopping for the food...ok plus i'm going out tonight to a poetry thingy and drinks are included all night which means i'll probably get drunk and i don't want to go to work with a hangover. i'll be having like 30 people over on saturday. Kachito is going to be in heaven. He loves people!!! i think he knows how adorable he is so he takes advantage of it. it will be a very busy saturday morning for me but it will be worth it!!! it ALWAYS is.

So your story of being thrown out reminds me of my first girlfirend. Her parents were Mexican and of course super-strict. She was not allowed to date any boys at all (let alone a Gabacho!).
So we had to do a lot of sneaking around. If we wanted to have time together outside of school then we had to skip school and go my house where nobody was home... I'm sure he thought that being strict was the best thing for her, but all it did was lead to her getting well aquainted with my bedroom ceiling!
anyway, you housewarming dinner sounds like it will be a big hit, and I'm glad you've finnaly found a place that feels like home... I'm still kinda searching for that.

dcn i never really understood and still don't understand the strictness of some parents. I did alot of sneaking around too..."papi i have to stay late to study with my friends at the library, no you don't have to pick me up, nancy will bring me home" and this my favorite one, not proud of it but "daddy, my job is having a weekend conference in springfield and i was told i HAD to go", i even made a letter with my job's cover letter...anyway, strict parents just make us lie and be deceitful(?). i was lucky enough to have my mother to talk to and guide me. good luck with finding a home...it's not an easy task but it sure helps to have the support of loved one.
