What I Learned While Out of the Office


10 Things I learned when I spent 10 consecutive days in a row away from work.

1. My job is stressing me out. I LOVE my job. I never want that to be misconstrued but it is indeed stressing me out. I think I need to figure out how to diffuse some of the problems I encounter before they happen. I don't even know if that's possible but there are so many non-job related issues that I just can't deal.

2. I like to sleep. Daytime naps are completely underrated and should be mandatory at work. Ideally I would like to have a job that I could do at home during the wee hours of the night and sleep to the day.

3. Wine in the daytime is AWESOME!

4. I want to be able to enjoy spontaneous day trips with my kiddos. I wanted to do so many things with them during those days off but I was so unbelievably tired that All I did was sleep. I felt horrible but this brings me to ....

5. Kids don't care what you do with them they just want to spend time with you. We had the most amazing times sleeping late, make cinnamon toast at midnight and enjoying each other's company.

6. I don't want to spend the rest of my life working for other people. I deserve the freedoms that come with successful entrepreneurial ship.

7. Daytime television sucks ass once Good Morning America goes off...

8. I would read more if I had more time.

9. I should turn my phone off more often. Even when I get a better that has a battery that doesn't have to be charged  every 3 hours. I am usually frantic trying to find my charger to revive it if I'm at work. During those days off I left it dead for 4-6 hours at a time.

10. How to put my eyebrows on fleek....(tutorial coming soon)

10 Things That Make Me Happy

In an effort to write more and post more on my blog (once again) I am going to start sharing writing prompts on my Facebook page. I'm sharing them with my friends because I truly believe in the calming power of writing and if I can encourage just one person to write then I've done my job. So here you have it' 10 Things That Make Me Happy: In No Particular Order 


Motherhood. Without out a single ounce of exaggeration, I live for my kids. I am consistently plagued with feelings of loathing and self doubt but I know that I brought these little people into the world and that I'm responsible for them. Because I feel that I have the responsibility to put on a brave face for so many other people no one will every fully understand the demons I fight on a regular basis. My children are my protectors. If it weren't for them I would have lost my battle to at least one a long time ago. 






Creating. Ya'll know I love to craft. My love for craft gives me a sense of accomplishmen…

Random Thoughts: Social Media Lies

Here are three random thoughts that are loosely related: 
Lying on social media should be considered a crime. You're on here making folks feel inferior; wishing their lives were as 'exciting' as yours when what you're presenting is only part of the story and sometimes it's just the part you made up. Some one recently commented on one of my photos "who does your hair because it looks good one every photo" Now, is my hair ALWAYS done? Hell nawl...but I aint taking and posting pictures when it's not. One of my recent boyfriend is all over social media with his new girlfriend. If I think about it long enough my feelings are a little hurt because one of the main things we constantly bumped heads about was social media...him flirting with other girls, we weren't friends on FB and I can't remember him EVER mentioning me or our relationship on social media. But here's the thing, despite him publicly showing how in love he is with this girl he is …

Weight Loss Check In- Week 1 - Days 1 thru 7

This week I started with meal replacement shakes. My will power was not strong! I was able to do the shakes 3 full days, meaning I had one for breakfast and one for lunch with a sensible dinner. I purchased both Slimfast and Atkins and have been having the Slimfast shakes for breakfast and the Atkins shakes for lunch. I would say that those are to credit for the 2 lb weight loss because I didn't exercise...at all - just tried to move around more. This upcoming week I am going to do the meal replacements Monday -Thursday and see how many pounds I lose.


Even though the scale didn't move much I do have so…
