Friends Rule!

Susana,

What would we do without friends!? I love your post.... it takes me back to being a young girl. I used to play soccer with my best friends, too. We also used to play a lot of games of adventure that we would make up. That was a blast. Now that I have a son, I am hoping I get to play again. I may have to beg and plead so he'll include me! :-)

Adults don't play enough, do we?

Congratulations on entering middle school this year!

I'm young at heart, of course!

It's true. You'd call me old. I'm 39!!! But I LOVE to play make believe still. I can't wait to play Lord of the Rings with Jonah. He's only 9 months, so I'll have to wait a little while longer.

We recently bought him a tunnel that he can crawl through. His favorite thing is chasing our cat through it. It makes him squeal with laughter!

How is it to be back in school!? Are you getting ready for Halloween? I need some good ideas for Jonah's first costume! What are your ideas?

xxoo,
jennifer

I love being a witch!

That's a great question. Maybe Jonah and I can be Batman and Catwoman!

Have you seen Nancy from Chicas Adelante recently? What do you think is the most important thing you learned about HIV?

Hi Susana!

What was conference about? That's great that both you and Eli could go together! I love being able to go to conferences and learn with my friends. Afterwords, you then have someone else to talk to about all of the new, information and, of course, all of the funny things that happened.

How was the radio show with the Cascade AIDS project? Were you nervous?

Did you decide on your costume yet? I think I'm going to carve a jack-o-lantern before halloween. Have you done that before? It's so fun and then you can clean the seeds off, sprinkle them with salt and toast them in the oven... Delicious!

Hi again Susana!

I thought talking on the radio would be a bit scary. I would be so nervous!!! I hope you had fun trick-or-treating. How is Adelante Chicas? Are you working on any projects there? Are there any new Chicas?
