Saturday, August 13, 2011: It’s still tough out there in the business world. Nobody knows if the economy is getting better or about to slide back into a recession. People are still having a tough time finding jobs. Companies are doing more with less these days. We are no different. We are going on 3-years since all hell broke loose. Is this really the new normal? What will it take to get past all this? What are we doing here? When is it time to live life again? Enough already. I find myself having this conversation inside my head almost every day.

The good news is that I got to see you! Another Saturday just flew by even though I was able to spend more time with you than usual. Adriana Coronel Tenorio (AKA Adriana Howitt Coronel, Ari Coronel, Ari Coronel Tenorio, Ari Howitt, Ari Howitt Coronel) was up to her usual “let’s fix this” rhetoric. Par for the course right before we are supposed to be in court on Tuesday. Sam like I have said before, I wish I could believe Adriana. She’s trying to tell me she is engaged to Isaias Palomeque (AKA Isaias Uzziel Palomeque, Isaias Palomeque Vergara, Project Manager at DJO Global). Great! Adriana is finally someone else’s problem. There is a problem with this story though. Adriana is lying.

Adriana is flaunting this extremely gaudy ring that is about as real as her ability to actually tell the truth. Maybe Palomeque promised her a real ring down the road. Who knows. I don’t care. Seriously, if the guy is that stupid to want to spend his life with someone who seems to take extreme pleasure in destroying people’s lives, even her own daughter, then he gets what’s coming to him. Palomeque is in over their head with Adriana either way. He has been played masterfully all this time and will play along as long as Adriana wants him to. Then again, Palomeque has already blown up two marriages. What’s one more.

Adriana goes on to tell me that it’s taken her this long to fall out of love with me and in love with this guy. Really? So, abducting my daughter, stealing all my furniture and having me ambushed a year ago and thrown into prison for absolutely no reason was what? A marriage proposal?

What’s interesting Sam is that you are my top priority. Making sure you are safe, taken care of and getting all this chaos behind us so you can grow up with all the benefits in life that you deserve. And while all this is going on, Adriana is worried about how to hustle money out of the men in her life. That’s all you need to know about what’s going on here. I digress…

Our time together Saturday was amazing as usual, under the circumstances. After you and I made pancakes together, we had fun with PlayDoh. I forgot how fun that stuff is. We completely destroyed your bedroom with the stuff, throwing it around like we were in a snowball fight. PlayDoh and your zombie shows on TV. I would not change this for the world right now knowing how lucky I am to be in this position as a left behind parent.

As our time was ending, Adriana asked me how we can fix all this…again. It’s like a broken record. As always, I told her our relationship starts and ends with the criminal case. Relationships, no matter what, usually end when one person is accused of something they did not do by the other person. All the while getting friends and family to join in and send the person to prison. It’s that simple. Adriana thinks this is a negotiation. It’s not. She wants me to drop my case against her in civil court and pay for her doctors and pay to fix her fake “neck injury”. I told you Sam, it’s all about how much money she can hustle out of the men in her life. Yeah, she wants me to drop the civil case in order for her to abduct you again. I told Adriana that’s not going to happen. That her own doctors told the court she was lying. There is absolutely nothing wrong with her. I reminded Adriana she was in the court room listening to her own doctors tell the court she was lying and that there was nothing wrong with her!

Her reply? Classic Adriana. She replied by telling me how crazy those doctors were and she found new ones. Really? Adriana paid them to lie for her in the first place and under oath they decided to not perjure themselves and tell the truth. But they are the crazy ones eh? Great, so basically what Adriana is telling me is that she knows she is lying yet she still thinks she is in a position to negotiate. All the while wants to fix all this for Samantha’s sake?

Ironically, Adriana forgot all about our court date on Tuesday. That shows how much she really cares about you or me Sam. As if I need to be reminded. I just want to be your Dad Sam. You are growing up so fast. What choice do we have but to keep fighting until the fight is done? I miss you my Princess! Many KISSES! Wish us luck on Tuesday.
