A trip to the gym in well over a year. A stop at Dunkin' for my iced coffee (duh!) A hop, skip, and a jump right into the pedicure chair. Eating out to lunch while the food is still hot. And lastly, a relaxing trip wandering the aisles of Target (skip the last part of the sentence hubby)...and spending money. What is all this, you ask? This is a morning filled with ME. Alone. No kids. And it was glorious.…Continue

Times have changed and so are the ways of Parenting. Thanks to the fast paced life especially in metros...where youngsters look for all the reasons to escape from Marriage. Even when they are finally tied into this relationship with the pressures from friends and family ....they run away from the responsibility of becoming parents and avoid it as long as they can until they again fall prey to the pressures of family and society.
Due to the changing lifestyle, Most of the…Continue

The day I discovered my husband’s side chick, I cried. I’ve known my husband for quite some time. We met when I was 15 and 16, just right outside of our homes. From the moment of that first hello, I couldn’t help but to feel butterflies. After we parted ways, I went to Howard University and he went to San Jose State University,I never really imagined that I would see him again. Needless to say life is funny. After 8 years we finally reconnected and I felt like that little…Continue

Life can be a bit discouraging! It is hard. It is rough. We ALL have bad days that sometimes turn into bad weeks, bad months and even bad years.
This week I ran into several different people, all going through completely different trials, but all struggling with one thing exactly the same – their self worth. A young friend struggling with the overwhelming amout of homework she had to get done, a young mom trying to find balance between her job and children, a wife going through a…Continue

Yesterday afternoon when my son got into the car, he was asking his sister if she ever put salt on ice. I didn’t realize that he was talking about putting the salt and ice combination on his skin. I just assumed that his science teacher was teaching them about temperature changes using salt and ice. Then this afternoon, I noticed a huge red spot…Continue

In September 2008, the financial world erupted when the largest global economic crisis in recent history rippled across the country. Experts proclaimed that it would take five years for unemployment rates to recoup, and six years for the housing market.

Is your life an endless cycle, revolving around work and taking care of the kids? If so, you’re not alone. In a recent study by the Families and Work Institute, ½ of American women say they don’t have enough time to spend on themselves and to choose the activities they enjoy. We all know that saying ‘yes’ to more responsibility can make us feel safer with the boss and help us avoid conflict in the family. But too often ‘yes’ is our default mode with just about…Continue

Something pretty big!
Something awesomely amazing! Yes, I realize that probably isn't grammatically correct. Hush! It expresses how I feel!
The realization, epiphany, understanding that I came to…

So yesterday I took the entire day off to hang out with my son, who is not quite 14. I told him that we could do whatever he wanted to do - the day belonged to him. He said he wanted to go out to lunch. I figured as much. He also wanted to check out the latest "G.I. Joe" movie. That would not have been my first choice, but what the heck. It was his day after all and there were cute guys and some fighting and car chases. I could roll with that. But I was more than a little…Continue
