I take great pride in the business we've created and kept for so many years but having these babies at home is DIFFICULT!!! They're so delicious that I find it hard to resist. I said my goodbyes this holiday though. After the surgery I plan on seeing, smelling, but not having any more tamales. If I do, it'll literally be just a bite and no more. I didn't get fat by just seeing them >_<
Secondly, I lost my father this past 4th of July, 2011. To say I was Daddy's little girl is an understatement. We were inseparable and he was my everything. He struggled with pulmonary fibrosis for three years but on that hot summer day, his heart and lungs finally gave out and he left this world. I was fortunate enough to be by his side till his last breath. He passed away at home with my mom and I holding his hands.
