I was observing a mom struggling with her little one at the store… he was perhaps about 7 years old. After a few minutes of trying to get her kid to comply with her request without success, she resorted to… “Ok, ok… if you do this, I’ll get you that toy you wanted.” To which […]
My online diary...
with no lock...
I'd lose the key anyway.
It’s been a very busy 2 months, working out a healthy schedule to fit in my new business projects. Sooo… how is it already November? (Just a rhetorical question, peeps…) I swear, there are days when I stare at my clock and ask, “Holy Fork… can the day go ANY slower? Sheesh!!” And all of […]

On October 2, 2006, I unexpectedly became a SINGLE MOMMY. Like many girls, I had plans for exactly how I wanted my family life to be. The hubs & I will have a dozen kids (JRoc’s such an amazing child, I thought he’d make a great big brother)… we’ll raise them to become exceptional […]

I’m pretty sure I know more people who have had their lips, cheekbones, butt, boobies, calves, and more “done” than I can count on both hands. And although I don’t support this practice, I say, “To each his own.” And I have to admit… tho many come out of it looking like an inside-out Picasso […]
Haven’t spoken to him in years. And it’s been over 7 years since we first split. Yet sometimes, I still find myself having a “word” with him in my head. Especially when I see other fathers spending time with their sons. Oh gosh, my mind immediately gets busy with thought like, “You don’t even realize […]
I’m more than happy to offer help in the Divorce Survival department. I’m especially fond of the the Raising Kids area. I’ve also been known to offer some pretty kick-azz advice when it comes to FREEING yourself from a Toxic Relationship. However, I FLAT OUT REFUSE to give any “expert” advice regarding Finding/Maintaining a Serious […]
