Breath of Fresh Air – A Dash of Laughs

I woke up feeling a bit peppy and cheerful, today I somehow felt a calmness. Which was a blessing and much-needed. It was pretty much a good day, I have tried to figure out what I did differently. Which took me a long time to figure it out. I am almost certain it had to do with a nice light-hearted talk I had with a friend yesterday. Have you ever had a friend that when you start talking the conversation just flows? And you bounce from one subject to the next, after a little while you realize you have talked…

Clouded Mind Heavy Heart- A Mother’s Love for her Children

Thank you everyone, I received a lot of very nice comments and many had some questions, I would like to answer some of them.. I have spoken with Noah about this, I really have a hard time understanding how “divorced parents” will trash talk the other parent to the children. So I said nothing to Noah about how his father is going about doing this, especially where his father is painting the ugly picture of me as a mom. I did tell Noah that “it’s kinda the law, that we have to do this with the courts so that it’s…

Well everyone knows about Noah my son, and about my other 4 older children, well this post is about Noah, I divorced Noah’s father when he was two,…

Friendships, Facebook Other ramblings

Do you ever think about the impact your friendships have on you? What if a friend you valued dearly suddenly stopped talking to you? Do you allow another friend, girlfriend/boyfriend, spouse be a reason in being someone’s friend? Have you ever had a mutual friend between you and your boyfriend/girlfriend or spouse that was closer to you? Is it fair to force this friend to befriend your bf/gf/spouse on any of the social networking websites just because that person has added you? Yes, I know that’s a bit much to think about isn’t it? Well it’s not something a lot of…

My Week At A Glance 1-19 (Mid-Week)

Peek into my week, it’s a mid-week update. I again feel like the days are whizzing by like nothing else, mid-week already and so much more to do. Noah had no school for Monday in honor of Martin Luther King Day, which I feel is not represented as it used to be, but I won’t get started on that for now. Tuesday was a non school day as it was Teacher Planning Day. (report cards come home today) So I have pretty much spent the past two days entertaining Noah, which wasn’t hard.. I always enjoy these days with him,…

My Week At A Glance -Where is Tampa? 1-15

A peek at my week  – Where is Tampa? I have come to the conclusion that time is flying by, I don’t know if it’s just me or what, but my week days are breezing by, and sometimes I feel like I go to bed wake up and its Friday already… My week wasn’t bad, still trying to find that prefect job, and the job postings lately haven’t been very appealing, but it doesn’t stop me from making an attempt at the ones that catch my eye in the slightest. I have spent a lot of time cleaning out closets,…

Good Bye Love

With tears rolling down her face she grabs her pen, all along thinking she knows in her heart it’s what has to be done, knows its time to let go and she writes …. Good Bye Love and continues with her side of the story. I believed that I needed to stick around, keep em company, fill the gaps, give conversation, be the one that showed someone loved em, oh and believe me when I say I did! I did love, I did want to be around for what ever was needed, when I was needed, and I didn’t want…

Driving is one

Driving is one of those things I could really do without.. I remember when I first learned to drive (I was 18 when I got my license) you couldn’t keep me off the road. I loved driving and would make up excuses to go out just to drive. But now for some reason, I don’t enjoy it as much as I used to, and would really love a driver…. I gave it a little thought after a friend said “deb, why don’t you like to drive, because of the other crazy drivers?” That would be part of the reason that…
