I got away from the family for a few minutes and managed to make it to the internet cafe. I have internet on my cell phone, but it sucks, so I can´t do anything on it as far as the blog goes. Or anything else for that matter, LOL.

Things here have been going well. Well sort of. If you count Jordan getting stung by an alacran (think black scorpion) a couple of weeks back, then later in the week she was walking in the kitchen (cement floor) barefoot, and the floor was wet, and she fell and hit her head on the floor. Then an hour or so later she dumped a huge pot of boiling beans on her foot and hand and got burned real bad. But other than that, everything is going well. Oh and yes Jordan is fine now, LOL.

Oh and one of our dogs got hit by a car (the person purposly swerved to hit the dog, who was on the side of the road) and died. That was a sad thing for the kids to see.

I now have a fuego, which means fire. Its an outside fire stove like thing. I had pictures but someone erased all of the pictures off of y SD card, so I can´t show you. Well I dont have a card reader either so even if I did have them, I couldn´t show you.

I may be coming to the US for 10 days later this month, and if I do, I will upload all the pictures from my laptop to show you all. And I will have time to be online (because it will just be me and Andre and Levi at my MOMS house. You know what that means right? Nana does everything, and I get a vacation. Just kidding mom.) and I can tell you all the stories of the milkman, the crazy lady, the little girl on the bike and Isa and her boyfriends. My internet time is up now, otherwise I would tell you now, LOL. I miss you all though, more than you know. I miss not being able to check in on you all. Be sure though that if I do go back to the US for those couple of weeks, I will catch up with ALL of you!

Oh man, Jordan is having some bad luck! Glad she is ok, sheesh give that girl some amethyst or agate to carry around for protection, sounds like she needs it! Glad to hear from you and glad you are doing well. Looking forward to hearing more from you!

CancunCanuck said...

Oh and BTW, I read your post title too quickly at first and thought it said "mentiras" and my heart skipped, I thought something horrid had happened, lol! Gotta do something about this old person's brain. :)

I am so glad to hear everything is going well...besides the dog and Jordan of course. I am happy for you and we miss you too. I also thought it said mentiras and I was thinking oh no what? Hope to hear from you soon but we completely understand why we cant. Love ya girl.

Hola amigo: quería invitarte que visites el blog que estoy realizando con mis alumnos de segundo año de la secundaria sobre LA DISCRIMINACIÓN.
Tema arduo e interesante.
Seguro será de tu agrado.
Tu aporte será valioso
Un abrazo desde la Argentina.

Momto3LittleFlowers said...

LOL... I also read Mentiras.... :(

Sorry about Jordan and the poor dog, but Im excited to hear that you will be going to the states and update us all.... I have been trying to message you from the messenger, as I can see you online, but no luck!!!

Take care hun!

Heather said...

Yeah for checking in. I seriously miss you and them kids. Glad jordan is ok. I have also tried sending you messages on yahoo as it says your mobile, but dont know if you got them.
Back in the states? so soon, girl your got some flyer miles, lol!


Honduras Sprout said...

Oh wow! Poor Jordon! And the dog. People are so weird. I think some people think they are doing some kind of service by killing dogs on the road since there are so many strays. How hard for the kids.

I've seen dogs and pigs get run over :(.

I'm really surprised you may be visiting the states so soon.
Thinking of you often!

Hey Jennifer!
I'm so glad you made it safely! We can't wait to hear about all the details. Hope life is treating you well. Look forward to meeting you next year in Honduras! BTW, small possibility I may fly out there to get step daughter & fly back, maybe there 1-2 days.
~Best of luck!

Adrians Mama said...

Jennifer I miss you!!!! I am glad you are able to be online somewhere even if its only for a short time!!! Cant wait to talk to you when you get back to the states!!

Lisa (LGMB) said...

You mean to tell me we sent you off without an SD reader???? Geesh! LOL

Poor Jordan. It sounds like she has really been through some trauma and what kind of bozo purposely hits a dog?

I would likely lose my mind over there and I guess we'll hear how you've been coping if you get a chance to come back over to the states soon; I hope so! I do miss ya.

Take care and be safe, wherever you go :)

I'm glad to hear from you, though! I've missed you so much and think of you so often! Take care and give Jordan a big hug from your bloggin' buddies! =D


Crystal said...

Jennie B said...

Hey Everyone, I got a message from Jen's mom on her status. Seems she has run into some bad luck and broke her foot in two places. She had to have some pins put in and can't be on it for 6 weeks! She also missed her flight to the states, as it was actually June instead of July.

If anyone is in the area, I am sure she could sure use a hand!

Olancho bound Gringa said...

Hi Jen,

So sorry to hear about your foot. I hope you will be feeling better soon. Hope all the crew are helping you. We can't wait to hear an update on you all. Sounds like it's been quite the adventure already! We'll be thinking of you & yours with prayers & much love from your blogging friends!

May God Bless You!

oh no! Your poor dog!

Patty said...


I had not checked your blog for a long time, and I was really worried about how you and the children were doing. We cannot move yet, but I am looking forward to the day we can meet and have a sitdown.

I am so glad to hear that you are happy.

We need a Jennifer update. Hoping she and her kids are doing fine and are all settled in. What's school like for them there? How is her foot? Family of Jennifer, please post updates! We were hooked and now going through Jennifer Blog withdrawal.

Olancho bound Gringa said...

Yes, I agree! We need a "Jennifer" UPDATE! I have followed your journey for a while now & would love to know how you & your family are doing. We miss ya!

Best of wishes to you & yours!

Let me see if I can do an update. This is Jen's Mom.

Andre is back in the good ole USA YEAH! Living with us and going to school here. He's adjusting, but missing his Mom and brother's and sisters!! It's too quiet here for him, but we keep him busy.

Jordan is here in the U.S too. She is staying with her Dad in Laurel. She was here with us this weekend and is doing pretty well! She too misses her Momand brothers and sisters.

I haven't talked to Jen this weekend, yet. HOpefull, she'll call soon! I absolutely HATE the fact that I can't call/email or make any contact with her, but have to wait until she gets to her in-laws house and calls me!!

She's suppose to be coming back in January to file taxes, etc. So maybe then she can do catch up on the blog!

But for now, this is Mom signing off.
