What I Learned This Past Week...


Though I could hear my mom's voice clearly in my head telling me
" NOT
to mix bleach with Pine-Sol..."
There is a stain on my shower wall that is driving me crazy.
I know most cleaners have bleach in them so I added some to the cleaning bottle that was under my bathroom sink The smell became really strong so I closed the bathroom door and I keep cleaning...
and this is what I learned this past week~

Newlyweds

When we were preparing to get married the bishop asked us if I give my 50% and Sergio gives his 50% if that is good enough...The answer is no.
We both have to give 75% and the extra 25% will strengthen one another.


We are doing excellent...Everyday is a little bit better. We are learning, slowly sometimes, each others customs/culture...for example...I now only walk in the shade to avoid being burned from the dangerous sun...and I always wear shoes to iron. He eats American food and washes his hands and the counters every time that he touch raw meat.

We are also learning to apply the great words of wisdom from my dear sweet friend Kara McCurdy...Forgive and Forget...Being married is much better than I imagined. It's nice to know that you always have a friend close to talk to and to share each others experiences.
