I only have 8

How do I get more? I had 11, then 2 dropped me. I have not been very active this year, but when I got more active recently, somebody else dropped me. How is that possible? I am down to 8 now.

Come on. Subscribe to me. I’m not all bad.

I always post a random photo with all of my entries too. You won’t regret it.

A Surprise Birthday Party

When I turned 14 my family gave me a surprise birthday party. They planned the entire affair right in front of me and I had no clue it was a party for me. I was actually surprised.

I should have known, because they invited everybody who was anybody. There were people at that party I did not know. My first clue should have been when my then boyfriend, Dexter Davis, asked for directions to my house. He asked me to write directions AND draw a map. Silly me did it and did not think twice about it.

It was on a Saturday. A regular Saturday, not any different from any other Saturdays in my life that year. My friends and I were hanging out at my house as usual. I remember exactly what I was wearing that day. I had on a pair of white polka dot shorts and a pink muscle shirt. Yes, a child of the 80’s. While hanging, Sharon was in the kitchen making some type of salad. A whole lot of salad. When I asked her what the salad was for, she ignored me.

After hanging at my house, someone decided to go to Margo’s house and hang. I did cartwheels in the middle of the street on the way. My white shorts were dingy and dirty by the time we got to Margo’s. While hanging at Margo’s everybody decided to change. I did not think it was strange that they all had a change of clothes and I did not. When I asked them why they were changing, they told me they were going to the movies. Well why would they all plan to go to the movies without me and NOT tell me? I did not find that strange either. It did not even phase me. I was so clueless.

After they all changed, Margo’s mom took me home and was going to take the rest of the girls to the movies. Little did I know they were dressed up for my surprise party. After dropping me off, they went down the street to throw me off. When I got out of the car, I could hear Cyndi LauperGirls Just Wanna Have Fun. I walked in the house singing that song as loud as I could. On the stairs I saw John sitting there in the dark. When I asked him why he was in my house, a bunch of people came out of the dark and shouted, “Surprise”. I was surprised!

Dad brought out a brand new 10 speed bike too. Dexter gave me a gold chain. It was one of my most memorable birthdays and I am thankful for it.

Today is Wednesday, November 28, 2007

and I am thankful for:

  • good customer service when I can get it. Now I said that to say that those folk who provide poor customer service and are rude can go to HAIL and kiss my crusty bleep bleep.
  • Americas Next Top Model. Yes, that is my Wednesday night fix. My hump day fix. Yes. ANTM rocks!
  • Music. Good music. Rhythm and Blues, soul, jazz, classical, country, pop, Jill Scott, Mary J. Blige, Alicia Keys, Mozart, Earth Wind and Fire. Good music soothes me. Can you tell I feel like I need soothing right now?
  • Children who can cook. TJ and William cooked dinner tonight. Keala cooked not a DERN thang. Life is beautiful.
  • I forgot the other thing I was gonna type here. It will come back to me. I hope.
  • My favorite ANTM contestant Bianca.

  • being served. Dinner was cooked for me and served to me; it was so sweet.
  • being loved. More than 3 people told me they loved me yesterday.

Today is Saturday, November 24, 2007

and I am thankful for:

  • sunny days. Today was a bit chilly, but it was sunny and beautiful. I love sunny days. I also love rainy days. However I am thankful today was sunny and beautiful.
  • mid day naps. I had the best uninterrupted mid day nap today. Felt good. I was not sleepy. It was a bit chilly inside as well, so I said I would go get in my bed fully clothed. Well you know how it is when the body heat starts to warm you. I got warm and sleepy, so I took a nap.

The last time I went to North Myrtle Beach

Was Labor Day weekend 2007. Doug took me. We had a blast. Labor Day weekend is the best time to go because the tourists have all gone home. We stayed at the Avista Resort. We had an ocean front room on the 5th floor. We slept with our door open all night every night.

We went shopping and ate at the BEST places.
I am trying to remember the name of this one restaurant we ate at. It was so nice. I guess I have to ask Doug. He is not available at this moment, but I left him a message asking the name.

Ok, the name of the restaurant is Cagney’s. I loved that place. We both did. We said we would definately revisit Cagney’s. I highley recommend it too. The atmosphere was very jazzy and old school. The food was awesomely delicious. The service was great. It was also very romantic. Yes, I would go back and go back with him.

So, I am opening this goal again.

We shall see what happens.

Friday, November 23, 2007

Today is Friday, November 23, 2007

and I am thankful for:

  • long holiday weekend. You know.
  • overlapping paydays. Yes, I will have that this pay period.
  • Allan Michael. He is so affectionate. He loves to hug and kiss. He loves his Mommy.
  • Chris Brown. He’s a talented little cutie pie.

Start by

saying, “NO!” It works. It’s not about being selfish either. It’s about being the best me so I can offer my environment the best that I have.

Five Aspects of Woman

I first learned about Mistress of The Domain in Sunday School a few years ago. I was in an all women class and we were studying The Five Aspects of Woman a course on Biblical womanhood. I highly recommend this study. You can find more information about The Five Aspects of Woman by clicking here.

The five aspects of woman are:

  1. Mistress of the Domain
  2. Helper-Completer
  3. Lifegiver
  4. Lady of Wisdom
  5. Glory of Man

Just participating in that study has made me a better person, woman, mother, friend. Since it has been so long since I have looked at my materials, I have decided to re-visit the five aspects and work at mastering them, starting with Mistress of the Domain.

3. Mable "Madea" Simmons

Although Madea is a fictional character, I admire her. She has spunk, sass, courage, humor, strength, and wisdom. When I first saw Diary of a Mad Black Woman, I thought to myself, “I need a woman like THAT in my life.” It did not even occur to me that my mom is very much like Madea, only a little softer.

The following is stolen straight from Wikipedia:

Mabel “Madea” R. Simmons is a fictional character based on the mother and grandmother of Tyler Perry. Madea is a grey haired, bespectacled aggressive matriarch. She will argue with anyone and has a penchant for her unique pronunciation and enunciation of words as reflected in her tag line, “Purnch You in the Face!” She is also part of a large family, with many children and grandchildren. Her name is spelled variously as “Mabel” and “Mable,” probably in order to confuse government authorities and others when applying for jobs, getting credit cards, etc.

“Madea” or “Madear” is a typical Southern name for a grandmother. The term is a shortened form of “Mother Dear.”

Madea was born in Greensburg, Louisiana in May of 1935, with two siblings: a sister, Irene and a brother, Joe. At some point in her early life she moved to Cleveland, Ohio then she relocated to Waycross, Georgia. Deacon Leroy Brown took Madea to the Waycross African American High School prom in 1953 and that night they had became intimate and later had a daughter, Cora. They did not marry because Madea did not find out that Cora was Brown’s daughter until her class reunion in 2003.Up until that time she was unaware of who the father was. Some of her extended family includes Parker Osgood, her cousin; Vickie, a niece; and several more relatives. In 1953, she married and relocated to metropolitan Atlanta where she still resides.

My First Car

It was a 1979 Chevrolet Monza. It was a rust/gold color. At the time I was so ungrateful. Really, I was. I took it for granted that I was just 15 and I had my own car paid for and all. I did not even have a job to earn money to put gas in the thing. My parents made sure it was full of gas. I was ungrateful then, but now I am very thankful for that part of my life. What a charmed life I had.

I did drive my grandmother and her sister around in it. They gave me gas money sometimes as well. And I used the money to put gas in my car.

I also ran errands for the family in a car I did not pay for. I did wash my own car and clean it myself.

Thursday November 22, 2007

Yesterday was Thanksgiving and I am thankful for:

  • the fact that I did not have access to type this goal. I went to my Dad’s in da country! We had a great time with the family and the children. Family energy is so therapeutic.
  • lessons learned again. The lesson I learned on Thanksgiving was a personal one about me and my thought processes. I have a lot of work to do. I have trust issues and I learned that I STILL need to work on that. I’ve known for years that I have this problem, and I thought I was working on it. I even know where it stems from. Lesson learned: have faith and confidence in myself. It is not always about me. Trust God, trust the Universe, trust me.
  • my step mother the selfless giver. She cooked everything and refused help from us. She did however let my youngest brother make the peach cobbler.
  • Allan is learning to spell. He likes to write and ask how to spell certain words. Well now he is doing so much better at sounding out the words and spelling them for himself.

Wednesday, November 21, 2007

Today is Wednesday, November 21, 2007

and I am thankful for:

  • the fact that I have been at this goal faithfully for exactly 21 days. Yay ME!
  • I took my first official training test at work today. I scored a 90%. Yay ME!
  • I memorized most of my new passwords today. I forgot 2. Yay ME!
  • My new job takes software development life cycle process seriously. Yay THEM!
  • They take project management seriously. Yay THEM!
  • They have several people responsible for individualized jobs and tasks versus a few people responsible for many different jobs and tasks. Yay THEM!
  • I went to church tonight. It was cool. Yay YAY!

So Easy

It is very easy never to run out of lip gloss. Every time I go to the store I buy a tube.

Tuesday, November 20, 2007

Today is Tuesday, November 20, 2007

and I am thankful for:

  • I get to order my own supplies now. I also get to order them whenever I need them. I no longer have to wait until June or October to order my supplies.
  • Arbor Mist Blackberry Merlot. Tastes good. Feels good. Nice little drink to have with a rich meal.
  • Responsibility for my own self. I’ve taken back my own personal time that I once gave away freely to whomever asked for it. Now I say no when I know I need some time alone. The only person who dictates when and where I go now is ME. I am so very thankful that I pick and choose wisely now. Mom wants me to visit her in DC for Thanksgiving. The ride will be too much for me, so I am NOT going. I am thankful that I do not feel guilty for telling her, “no”.

Monday, November 19, 2007

Today is Monday, November 19, 2007

and I am thankful for:

  • the fact that I am typing this before I go to sleep
  • Ten Ten Chinese restaurant. They have the best lemon pepper wings EVA!
  • life, love, happiness
  • TJ, William, Allan. I love them dearly.

Sunday, November 18, 2007

Today is Sunday, November 18, 2007

and I am thankful for:

  • my new tv stand I put together today
  • washer and dryer in the house. YES AGAIN! I am that thankful for it.
  • my new job I start tomorrow. It is so close to home. No more driving forever to get to work.
  • this life I live.
  • my laptop and wireless internet in da house so I can type this while in bed. Can you tell I’m will be sleeping very soon?
  • the fact that I adopted this goal. Some days I struggle to find something new and different to be thankful for. However, I manage to look around, be thankful, and make the best of what I already have. Since I have embarked on this goal I must admit that I find myself happier and more fulfilled AND more productive and optimistic. Like I said before, LIFE is GOOD!

Well Guess What?

I re-opened this goal just so that I could mark it DONE.

Yes it is done.

You know what they say? When you give up on this type of goal, BAM! it hits you!

I can officially say that I am in love!

We been seeing each other for 1 year and 3 months. I did NOT expect this to happen. I only looked at him as a friend and I had my guard up. But he somehow found a way to unplug that icebox where my heart used to be and help replace the heart.

Life is good.

Saturday, November 17, 2007

November 16, 2007

Yes I did not have time to write anything for November 16, 2007. However, on that day I remember being thankful for:

  • Carraba’s. Had dinner there and it was delicious.
  • The wonderful man who took me to Carraba’s. Love his company and conversation.
  • Great working relationships with my former employer. I am thankful they appreciated me and my work.
  • This lovely life I live. Life is beautiful.

Today is Saturday, November 17, 2007

and I am thankful for:

  • The fact that Friday, November 16, 2007 was so full I had absolutely no time to type my entry for that day.
  • My brand new red sofa I had been searching for all year this year 2007.
  • A very full day today. I spent the entire day with just Allan Michael. We had a blast. It was full, fun, and fulfilling.
  • Time alone with just one child. I appreciate that time alone with Allan. When you have multiple children, often times your time is spent with 2, 3, or all of them. Allan and I both needed that time alone together. That time is valuable to him. He was on a higher level with me today because of it. He was inquisitive and did not have to compete with anybody for my attention. That competition for attention is a hard one.

Thursday, November 15, 2007

Today is Thursday, November 15, 2007

and I am thankful for:

  • friends with the same mindset as me
  • awareness of circumstances. Being aware of your circumstances both good and bad. I guess I would have to blame Eddie Blue Eyes for part of this realization. I am thankful that I’ve learned not to ignore the negative but also NOT let the negative overshadow the positive. I’ve learned to look at the negative, evaluate the negative, and use positive life lessons and circumstances to overcome the negative. Develop a plan to improve upon the negative in your life and put that plan into action. If necessary, write down your plan into doable mini actions/goals.
  • Duece Bigelow Male Gigolo. Watching it right now. Very funny. I need a laugh tonight and I’m thankful this movie is on to tickle my funny bone.

Wednesday, November 14, 2007

Today is Wednesday, November 14, 2007

and I am thankful for:

  • the fact that I do NOT see the wasbund on a daily basis. That would not be good for my mentality.
  • the confessions and professions of Keala Brown.
  • work
  • my children
  • opportunities to mentor
  • my new Alicia Keys cd. That joint is BEE-AD.
  • the opportunity to share my gratitude with the world. Yall are awesome MAN!!

What Robot?

I’ve never even seen one of the robots. This just doesn’t work for me.


Some days are easier than others.

Some days I just love em to pieces.

Some days I wanna scream.

Some days I’m so proud.

Some days I’m disappointed beyond belief.

Such is life.

I won’t give up on them. NEVER.


is this possible with 1-2-3 sons?

The Basil

did great. I didn’t even recognize it at first because my labels got washed away in the rain.

Today is Tuesday, November 13, 2007

and I am thankful:

  • that I wake up early everyday. I don't usually get out of bed, but I do wake up early. Sometimes I just lay there. Sometimes I unsuccessfully try to go back to sleep. Sometimes I just get my butt right outta bed. I must say that on the days I get directly out of bed are the best days for me. So, I guess I need to make a better effort at getting out of bed when I wake up.
  • for Cosmic Brotha Tony. Man I love him. He makes me laugh. He has a good heart. He's given me some great advice during what I perceived to be difficult times. I am very grateful I ran across him on 360. 360 was good for something.
  • for a strong back. Tony pointed out that I was writing too much happy happy poetry. I am thankful that my back can withstand the reason why. Ok that was a joke, but I am still thankful nonetheless.
  • for a washer and dryer in my house. I remember when my washer broke and I had to be creative until I got it fixed. Not having your own washer and dryer is such a huge inconveniece, especially since I do a load everyday. I am thankful that my washer and dryer work and I can use them everyday.

Have a beautiful day.

The Gift of Life

I would say this is by far the most significant gift I have ever received. Otherwise I would be writing this and you would not be reading this. Every day I awake I am re-gifted this gift. Life is beautiful, wonderful, painful, joyful, a rollercoaster, exciting, full of lessons, the best gift ever and every adjective you can think of.

The day was March 25, 1970. I was the first born to my parents John and Brenda. They did their best to give me a good life. They both love me dearly and I am happy to have received the gift of life through them. I am grateful to have them as parents.

Life is a precious gift. Live it to the fullest. Enjoy it. Revel in it. Appreciate it. Treat it like the gift it is.

Whatchu Doin?

It's Monday night and all the shows I like come on tonight at the same DAMN time.

Necklace - Birthday 2007

I was expecting a birthday gift from my friends. I was NOT expecting jewelry. It was such a pleasant surprise I had a big Kool Aid smile all day and all night long.

I wear it everyday.

2. ME

I am a good woman.

I’ve been to hell and survived.

I love being a mom.

I paid for my own college education.

I set goals and complete them. Ok, so I haven’t learned to shoot a gun yet.

I am compassionate and caring.

How I Feel

PunaniPoet posted this video tonight. This is how I feel about my man.

Today is Sunday, November 11, 2007

and I am thankful for:

  • friends
  • family
  • life
  • love
  • children
  • deer meat. A coworker gave me some deer meat cube steaks and grounded deer meat. I cooked the cube steak today and it was delicious. Deer meat is tender, wild, and full of protein.
  • motherhood. Although being a mom is hard work, I must say it is absolutely the best assignment I've ever had. Being a mom is over fulfilling and very rewarding. I love being a mom.

Saturday, November 10, 2007

Today is Saturday, November 10, 2007

and I am thankful for:

  • the care and love of a wonderful man. I know I've said this before, but every moment I spend with him I see it. We went to celebrate the birthday of a dear friend last night. He was tired, but he came out anyway. AND we had a great time.
  • My lovely sister friend Christina. She just turned 40 and we celebrated her birthday last night. I always enjoy her.
  • The fact that I could take a long nap in the middle of the day today and have NOBODY bother me. It was beautiful.
  • it's 7:30 on a Saturday night and William and Allan are KNOCKED OUT. They played hard today. After playtime I put those little buggers to WORK. Housework and chores never killed anybody. They did great. I am proud of their mental and emotional growth.
  • PEACE. Internal Peace and the much coveted external Peace. Today was very peaceful for us. I love it.
  • Today. I am thankful for today. This day was a beautiful gift.

Have a great weekend.

Friday, November 9, 2007


November 1, 2007 I started listing things in my life I am thankful for on a daily basis. You can find the list here.

Well, the other day as I was writing my list, it occurred to me that I have so much more to be thankful for. Life is a gift in and of itself. Wouldn’t it be wonderful and another great exercise if I started a list of every single gift I remember receiving?

So, that’s what this goal is about: listing every gift I remember receiving.

Today is Friday, November 9, 2007

and I am thankful for:

  • delegation. I love delegating work to others who are qualified to do it. I am thankful that I can delegate my work to at least 9 different people who I know will get the job done. That means I can also do more. Delegation is a good thing.
  • a job close to home. I know I don't start until the 19th, but I am so thankful that my commute time will be cut in half. Not only will my time be cut in half, but the roundtrip distance will go from 50 miles to 10 miles. That is so beautiful.
  • more time with my sons. Because of this new job, I will have more time with the ones I love the most.
  • appreciation. I am thankful that the people in my life appreciate me. Shoot, I appreciate me. Don't you?
  • self acceptance. I am thankful that I can be the REAL ME without worrying about offending some people. I am a flirt by nature, nothing I do on purpose. I am thankful that I can let the natural me and the natural flirt within me free and the people in my life absolutely LOVE me for it. There is nobody trying to change me or convince me that I need to be a certain way. I am thankful that I can be who I am and not give a DAMN about what others think of the REAL Me.

I love me just the way I am. I love those who accept me just the way I am.

¨ the fact that former employers and coworkers actually want to work with me again.

¨ the community I live in.

¨ trees. I love trees

¨ green grass. Not the kind you smoke, the kind that grows on the front lawn.

¨ my overgrown fenced in backyard.

¨ money. Yes, it pays the bills.

¨ the color yellow. Remember I painted my living room yellow? I love it.

¨ my cousin calling me today to recommend Pur. Pur is now located where the Comedy Theatre used to be. My girls and I will have to look into that.

Tuesday, November 6, 2007

Today is Tuesday, November 6, 2007

and I am thankful for:

  • the fact that I stayed home today. Some packages were delivered today and I'm glad I was here to receive them.
  • the lil bit of sense God gave me.
  • Dr. Phil. I like his show. I watch it on days I'm home.
  • truth and lies. I don't know why, but I am. I'm being kind of lazy with my thankfulness exercise today. I need to get more detailed and focused on this task.
  • awareness. Today I am painfully aware of the not so good in my life right now. Believe me it's not even that bad. I've been home all day, but I did NOT a lick of house work. My house desperately needs the work today. It's 3:22 and I'd like to get it done before TJ gets home. He'll be here in 30 minutes.
  • the fact that I can actually step away from this puter and do some housework.
  • the fact that I'm actually getting up to clean right now.

Have a cleanly day. I'm going to go clean house. I am thankful that I have a beautiful house to clean and that my mom taught me how to clean.

Dear Fellow Bloggers
How many of you work in an ice box? I do. I keep a space heater to warm me during the polar bear winters we endure here in tropical SC. So does our dear friend Yesha.

You know how it is. It's 50 degrees outside and some polar bear inside turns on the ac. That makes it 30 degrees inside. I experience this myself.

Then the powers that be tell you you cannot have space heaters to overcome the cold. So, like most of us, we go out and buy those tiny little heaters and put them under our desks. When inspection time comes, we HIDE the little buggers in some drawer or supply closet
Well, poor little Yesha did this as well. She was following all of the unspoken rules of keeping warm in polar bear temperatures.

However, her STUPID coworker borrowed the heater and failed to plug it into a surge protector. Well, you know that caused a power outage because that "brave little heater that could" was trying to warm a 30 degree room.

When the power went out, the space heater police were dispatched in search of the culprit. They found Yesha's brave little heater trying to warm a 30 degree room and promptly confiscated it. They took it to heater detention.

Which is why I'm writing this plea. Yesha is working from home because the ice box is a hostile environment. She is now forced to sit in her office with leg warmers & gloves on. How efficient is this? When she's not working from home, Yesha is sitting in her cold office w/o heat due to her coworker...who has now went out and purchased her own heater. Do you think the dummy is sharing her warmth with Yesha? NO!

How many of you work in 30 degree offices? Please donate to the "Yesha Needs To Get Warm at Work Fund" today. Save a warm blooded sister from the evil polar bears who control the thermostat.

This is only November, imagine what will happen in December & January.

Yesha promises to use a surge protector, properly hide her new heater, and never share her warmth with dummies again.

Forget about feeding a child you don't know, save a woman from the clutches of the freezing cold, so she can continue to work and support her family. This is indirectly feeding the child of someone you DO know.

Donate today.

Yesha, we need you to post photos of the new heater you buy with the funds raised in this campaign.
