About Me

My photo
What is a PRG?? PRG is something someone started calling me long ago - almost in another lifetime. It stands for "Puerto Rican Goddess." Most days lately, I just feel like a Pretty Regular Girl. So this blog will journal my days as a PRG. Some days that will mean my adventures as a Puerto Rican Goddess; other days I'll just be a Pretty Regular Girl. I hope you can find entertainment in both.

Confession #2

I love sports, but I'm a *huge* fair-weather fan. Example: When I was in high school, my dad told me about a quarterback named Brett Favre. So for the next 12 years, I proudly proclaimed myself a loyal Packers fan. Then Favre retired. Then he came back, but as a NY Jet. OK, OK, we all know the story. The point is, I used to be able to name the Packers players, give you stats about the game, the stadium, who had how many yards, etc. Now, I couldn't even tell you what their record was last year. I guess in truth, I am more a fan of individual players, rather than a team, necessarily.

Football does hold a very dear spot in my heart, right next to mixed martial arts. Mixed martial arts (MMA) is a combination of jiu jitsu fighting, wrestling, boxing, and muay thai fighting. It's really dangerous, and the fights can get pretty graphic, but it is so exhilarating to watch! I can name most of the seasoned fighters in the UFC (the most well-known league), and I definitely have my favorites.

I know I can't be the only girl who likes to see someone taken out by an arm-bar or a flying knee. Anyone else out there...anyone? Speak up! Let me know what your favorite sport is!

And So She Began Another Year of Her Life...

I made it to 30! LOL, I'm being silly, of course, but I was really afraid of turning 30. I know I haven't been very faithful to this blog (or to the Shoppe blog, for that matter,) but so many things have been changing recently.

I've mentioned that I lost my job as a financial advisor about six months ago, and we've been struggling a bit ever since. Well...three weeks ago, I finally started working again! Albeit a place where things are not exactly on the up-and-up (let's just say their idea of business ethics is a little different than mine)! Still, it was a job, and I was bringing in a little money while I continued my job search.

Well, I was able to find another position, and I started yesterday. The previous job was as a server/bartender at a local sushi bar that just opened. This job is bartending also, but this time for a place with which I am very familiar. I've also had an inquiry this week about a very large candle order, and received an email order yesterday from a very loyal customer.

So...things are finally looking up for us! In the interest of doing something fun, and in keeping with the title of this blog, I decided to post some "Confessions of a PRG." Since I just turned 30, I'll post one confession each day for the next thirty days. Today's confession is...

I am a horrible housekeeper. Truly, I *love* the idea of organization, I just can't seem to find "a place for everything, and everything in its place." I am getting better, and Jay and I spent most of the day today doing "fall cleaning" - clearing out cobwebs, throwing out old mail and files we had been hanging on to, that kind of thing. I am still amazed at how many spiders there are in Texas! But I digress. That's my confession for today. Tune in tomorrow for another!
