Sometimes it is hard to be strong for others, so make sure to be strong for yourself.

Parents Just Don’t Understand

Parents always say, Do as I say, not as I do. But what are we showing our children? Why should they listen if we can’t follow our own rule?

I tell my children how I handled a situation and the outcome. I also offer the experience that I have gained from that choice. I don’t want them to make the same mistake I made, but they feel that I turned out alright so they can too.

I have had my kids tell me that they wish they would have listened, now here is another on, going down the, I will do what I want to do, path and all I can say is that I hope it works out. i made my mistakes and plan not to make too many more in life.

Ex-Spouse Day

Celebrate Ex-Spouse Day: Give a thought to the person with whom you still have negative feelings for!

It may appear very absurd, shocking and stupid to think of someone, who is no longer in your life, especially if the separation was traumatic or painful.

It’s always good to come out of emotional disorder by think of the better times, especially when kids are involved.  Life is too short, so don’t hold your anger and hostile feelings for someone who no longer deserves that attention.

Whatever may be the reason of separation, his or her fault, it is better to let it go. April 14th of every year is regarded as the day of ex-spouse, when people across the world remember their ex.

The credit for this day goes to Reverend Ronald Coleman, who created this beautiful thought, that a Day must be recognized to remember your ex-spouse. So, on 14th of April, shed all those past agonies, anger and anguish and become a better person inside. With a smile on your face, see the positive change in you!

It is more damming for the other person to see you smile and not give them the negative energy anymore. It is like laughing in their face!

What do you want for Christmas?

This is a question that is asked every year. I tell my children, a clean house and no arguing. This is what I have been getting for 26 years. I am happy with that. As my family got older, we tried to do the name drawing thing, but it only worked one time. Getting everyone together to draw names was a hassle, so we stopped that. One year, only children got gifts, once again, it only worked one time. I was fortunate enough to get everybody in my family a watch one year, i got nothing, but it was okay. I felt the Christmas joy of giving.

I have told my kids after they were old enough to THINK there is no Santa that Santa IS TOO REAL. He sprinkles magic dust in my purse and dad’s wallet so we can buy things for them. This magic comes in the form of sudden overtime at work when overtime is hardly ever offered, LOL. Now there is extra cash to use right?

Now I ask, what do you want to eat for Christmas? This is the new Christmas question.


How much sleep is too much sleep? I can go to sleep just after 10 pm and wake up so tired. I can go to sleep just before 10 pm and be fully rested. I can go to sleep closer to 9 pm and wake up at 2 am. What is wrong? On the weekends, my body wakes up like it is time for me to go to work. Why can’t I sleep in? Sleeping in for me is sleeping until 8 am. Ha…

I don’t take naps. Okay, one per season, LOL. If I take a nap, I wake up more tired than I was when I laid down. I just don’t understand!
