Guess who I saw today?

Juanette VillagomezI saw Juanette Villagomez!

Juanette was Christmas caroling with the Marianas High School Refalawash (sp?) Culture Club up on Capital Hill.

Juanette is my father's second cousin's granddaughter. By Chamorro convention, that makes her my niece.

Juanette's grandmother is also my stepmother's mom's sister. That technically makes her my step-cousin.

Oh yeah, Juanette is also one of my father' godchildren. By Chamorro convention, that also makes her my godsister.

Depending on how one looks at it, Juanette is either my niece, my cousin, or my sister. Can you see how we get kind of confused by family relations out here?
