Expiration Dates

       To everything there is a season and reason… or so the saying goes.  I’ve been wanting to write this post for a while because it seems that while change is a normal and natural part of life, we aren’t always ready nor prepared for it.  Most everything in life has an expiration date, food, home goods, animals and people.  We  ...

What’s your status?

I recall when I was HighSchool and College “status” meant what grade you were in or what year you were in College. Today the word status means something totally different in the dating realm. Outside of the usual what you do professionally? , How many kids you have? type questions is the most controversial question of all. Whats Your Status? The answer  ...

Good help is hard to find

As I, dare I say struggle to balance work, life, kids, school, homework, teacher conferences, etc., I realize it’s a really underrated thing being a parent. It really can take a lot out of a person. I only have 3 kids, but sheesh what about the people who have more than that. It’s interesting for me because while I was married and working might I add, I  ...

Taking my 50% back

       I saw an interview of Donald Sterlings wife.  She said that over the course of 20 years she’s “been wanting to file for divorce”.  She said she had papers in hand already signed and waiting to be filed, but her financial advisors and attorneys told her “not now”.  When asked why she is suing V.Stiviano she said simply I wanted my 50% back from  ...

It’s just waaaay too much work. I recently told a girlfriend of mine, who thought I sounded completely crazy for saying “I don’t have time to get all done up to meet  ...

Does instructions come with this guy?

  In an effort to be fair and balanced. I have to say I’m no patron saint. I didn’t cheat or hit but If I’m honest I caused wounds of my own that left bruises on him.  As a darker skinned woman my exterior bruises were not as noticeable as say those that would’ve been left on him, a 200% lighter skinned man whose hue was on the opposite spectrum of  ...

Hindsight is 20/20

About 5 or 6 months into our marriage the phone rings and I pick up to what would be one of the strangest calls I’d ever taken.  It was both troubling and an odd call given who was on the other end, but hold that thought as the person behind the voice is revealed at a later date.  A woman calls and she starts ranting on the line “Tell your husband  ...

Staying Plugged in

Juggling acts aren’t just for the circus. As a professional working mom wearing several hats, it feels like I have  3 jobs, 3 kids, several balls in the air at once and growing.  Its easy to lose sight of  self in the process as well as lose connectivity with the kids.  I have to at minimum work on self daily.  I believe a healthy happy me equals a  ...
