About

I am (shock of shocks!  I made it this far!) a 40 yr old single mother to 3 angels. 

I’ve felt drawn, no pulled, sometimes even dragged in the direction of humanitarian help.  That does not mean that I ever worked for the Peace Corps, or that I deliver A.I.D.S. medications to sick children in South Africa, although I almost did.  But, I do have an overwhelming feeling of need to be in a position to help those around me, so, about 4 years ago I started on a Holistic Nutrition program.  Determined to graduate at the top of the class, and be a superstar among the Natural Health Giants of the world. 

That.  Didn’t.  Happen.  At least not yet.  Life happened instead.  I got pregnant, with twins.  I almost lost them.  Then didn’t, yae!  Then a yucky divorce, and a full-time job with a career change and a move happened.  Finding myself alone with 3 children, all under 3 was almost more than I thought I could handle.  But as it turns out, I could handle it.  I got back into my studies this spring for about 2 months, then dropped them again.  (for different, but stressful reasons)  Now however, I’m determined to finish, and finish well.

It occured to me while in the depths of my despair, that I could not give proper advice to anyone if I was a screaming hot mess, so I spent the last 3 years working on me, instead of on my schooling, and it has paid off.  NOW I feel like I know what I’m talking about, like I know what I’m doing, and more importantly, like I know where I’m going.  For the moment.  I am an Aquarius, so don’t bet on anything staying the same for too long.  ;)  

Thanks for stopping in. 

Be free.  Stay safe.  Feel loved.

  1. If I didn’t know you, I’d feel as though we’d just met by reading this – most excellent! I love the way you express yourself with words! oxo

  2. Hi d.Lo (can you explain to an Englishman living in Spain your name?) I am looking at your photo and you have lovely children. You don’t want to believe the medical explanation of twins because I know that when you have a baby God has special offers. Have one get one free 😉 Have a great time blogging d.Lo. Take care. Ralph x

    • haha! Yes Hola Ralph! Basically, because my name is Del Rio, and my heritage is Mexican, some of my friends started calling me d.Lo when Jennifer Lopez started going by the moniker j.Lo. And it stuck.

      Thank you for your kind words, that was very sweet of you. Have a wonderful weekend in Spain. Buenos dios!

      • Thank you so much for your explanation d.Lo. I kind of understand because I am not up to date with the goings on of the showbiz world. I have just seen your reply to Tina and WordPress Dashboard is a real headbanger initially. I hope you find your way through it soon. Have a nice day out. Ralph x

  3. Thank you so much Tina! 🙂 I’m still having a few issues, I’ve tried to get my Gravatar thingy to work, like 5 times and it still dosn’t seem to like me. *sigh* I will get this though! Today I’m off to get my darlings and it’s Family day at the Battalion, so work and fun, lol! Cheers love!
