Divorce Suxs..

  There are no good or bad divorces… friendly maybe, but good?…. Not so much and mines would be no exception to that rule.  What the heck is going on I’ve asked myself repeatedly over the past few weeks?  It seems we make 2 steps forward and 3 steps back.   I’m talking about the external manifestation of divorce on children.  Its  ...

You’re too fancy for me!……. Is it really the children who are over the top or did the parents make them that way?  I saw a headline on yahoo about rapper Lil Wayne having this all out super Sweet 16 party for daughter which ended with her getting 2 really fancy High End vehicles… AT 16!!!   I guess if you got it.. you get it?    That article made  ...

Blame it on the Alcohol

I’m so in awe and amazed at the things that people share… up to and including myself, but moreover what people share upon 1st meeting someone new.   I decided to get out and mingle the other day, so off I went to a local “hot spot” for happy hour.   I was sitting at a high top table with 3 other ladies all of which were not native Columbians.  We  ...

Single and Searching

Single and Searching for the “ONE” seems to be the order of the day for most of my single friends… including myself.  As I reflect over my shoulda’s, shouldnot’ves and maybes I’ve come to realize that there are a whole lot of us that are just confused or as I like to say .. “LIKE IT ROUGH”.   Like it  ...
