Ah, now I remember…

Not sure how long ago it was. If I really wanted to be precise with the memory, I'd scroll back through my blog posts and find it as I chronicled a lot of my life's ups and downs here on WordPress for quite a few years, but alas, scrolling through said chronicles is a long … Continue reading Ah, now I remember…

It’s Been a Minute, But Then This Happened

...and I had to write about it. So, I'm standing in a UPS store, waiting to drop off a package. White woman says, “may I help you sir.”  I don’t flinch, just say, “I’m here to drop off a package.”  The woman tells me to set it down on the scale and, “Hold on, I’ll … Continue reading It’s Been a Minute, But Then This Happened

Challenge Day 2 – Bust, But…

Ha, ha... yeah, so "play a game, just for the fun of it."  What I had in mind was sitting down with my sister and having her teach me how to play Apples to Apples.

Day 1 Challenge – Done

June 1st - Wear an outfit you feel GREAT in. I had a small event tonight. I had my dress all pressed, cute sandals set out, and a quick splash of polish on my toe nails.

Birth Month – Let’s Do This!

So yeah. I didn't get to celebrate my 50th the way I wanted to. But since I'm a grow'd-up, I figure I can do what I want, and that means, I'm calling a do-over! That's right, this year, my 51st trip around the sun will kick off with a 50th birthday celebration of my choosing. … Continue reading Birth Month – Let’s Do This!

Help Send My Daughter to Budapest!

My goober is currently a junior in college. She's set her sights on writing, directing, and acting in film. Have no idea where she would have gotten that from, lol. She's secured a spot on the roster of a handful of students who get to attend the Study Abroad program where they go overseas to … Continue reading Help Send My Daughter to Budapest!
