“I wanted to take this opportunity to give my condolences to all the families who has lost their love ones to Covid-19. We have all been effected one way or another through this pandemic. My family as well have lost great people, who we can never be replace and they will surely never be forgotten.” CR
Human life is very precious and at times, we can loose sight of what is important, going back to 2019, I was like everyone, amazed by the horror, dumb founded with stupidity, this can never happened here, and amused by the shortage of TP.
Being 24/7 with your family is not easy, wearing a mask, was not and still not fun, social distancing was hurtful and not enjoying the little things we have taken for granted, for so long, has been a life changing experience. My husband renovated the whole house, he even took up gardening (I never ever want to see another cherry tomatoes) and I took Nail Art.
as you can see, my effort are starting to improved dramatically or maybe not. I just wanted to let everyone know, you are not alone and we are all here for you. We love you, we are always praying for you and never, ever loose hope. Things might not ever go back to before, but looking ahead it is what really matters. Being a better person and having faith for a better tomorrow is what really matters. We all have made it this far, let’s not quit, so don’t give up. Do what you need to do, home school, work from home, start a new endeavor, work hard to keep what you have. Regardless, you are not alone, we are not alone.
My Do It Yourself, nail adventure, may not get me into a You Tube Video, but it has given me my sanity back, relived my stress and made it so what fun.
“I will make this as simple as I possibly can. These are the top ten lies or excuses cheaters give their partners when they know their game is up.”
#10 – Paycheck doesn’t add up
The simple excused given when the hours and pay are not the same….”Its’ must be the new girl at payroll.” “My supervisor must have forgotten to included my hours, he is under a lot of stress.” “I was working on another project, must have not included it on this pay period.”
#9 – Need To Work This Weekend/ Have to go out of town
Yes, the famous “I need to work this weekend and going out of town.” Whatever is your job title or profession. This one really should send you some bells and whistles something is definitely wrong. Double check when in doubt.
#8 – Lending Money
If your significant other is a scrooge and it’s not the giving type. You should question the why and the motives for this change of heart.
#7 – The Long Phone Conversations
I like this one. My ex-husband was full of excuses for this one. “Friends that were in need of moral support.” Ending the conversation with “I love you.” He would say it’s a guy thing. Added it shows we are “tight”. Really?
You may be one of the lucky ones and your partner, spouse, significant other is pretty honest. But when in doubt, do not hesitate to question it.
#6 – Going to the Store
“Yes, I need to go to the store to get a new tool, a new shirt, a new gadget for the home project, etc.” This would honestly work, if the person did not take 4 to 5 hours to come back, did not omit to answer their phones and came home with nothing to show. Come on! Women are the shopping queens of the world. Yes, we may take all day. But we do bring something back. Oh, and we do answer the phone.
#5 – Going to the Car Wash / Or going to get an Oil Change
How many times do you need to change the oil in your car? Really, I mean, honestly, really…really. The standard for oil changes is every 3,000 to 5,000 miles or every three to four month depending on your driving conditions.
Going to the car wash is not a big thing. If you can afford it, go for it. What is a big thing is the lie about the huge line, the car wash place ran out of water. There was a huge explosion, wonder why it wasn’t in the news. and so on.
#4 – I have already eaten
Your sweetheart never misses a meal at home. You may not be the culinary chef. Your budget may be tight. But your “hubby” always, always, eat his meals at home with you.
#3 – The ATM Withdrawals
Yes, if your special someone always paid with their debit card and now it’s on the cash system. That should alert you. All the sudden, a necessity to carry cash. The withdrawals amount should also be questioned as well. Remember cash doesn’t leave a paper trail.
#2 – Stayed at a friend house
Yes, that dreaded party you did not want to attend or didn’t get invited.” Men only. Got carried away and drank too much. You wouldn’t want me to get arrested for DIU. So I stayed at my friend’s house.” Or even better. “We decided to spend the night at a motel just the five of us. So we could split the bill equally. You understand.”
#1 – The sick or dying friend
This one is my favorite. All of the sudden you have been casually introduced to a long time, lost friend of your spouse. The one he has never ever talked about. His best friend, his buddy or pal. Now he is at the hospital. He is dying. He doesn’t have a lot of time. He must go and see him. Spend time with him. “It’s okay, you do not have to go. He is in ICU. You understand.” Yes, I spend $40 on KFC, it was his last dying wish. How can you judge me, like that.”
Like I said this one is my favorite. If you have others to share. Please do not hesitate to include them in your commets. Until next time…….
Hi everyone, you have all become a part of my family and I give thanks for visiting my blog. Today I will be discussing my opinion on this topic. I hope it helps someone out here.
Divorce is never easy. We all go thru some changes in our life and adding divorce to the pot really doesn’t help at all.
It really doesn’t matter how many times you have been thru this it really doesn’t get any easier. Your life as you have known it for a while has turned again. You need to get yourself out of these murky waters and re-evaluate what you want out of this.
For starters Think about yourself. Yes “Me” comes first and the rest will follow. You will have does moments that you will feel you made the right decision and you will have other moments when you are second guessing yourself. So Stop!
Do not second guess yourself. Move forward. The same energy and dedication you put yourself thru trying to make the relationship work are now needed in order for you to survive.
I know, going it alone is not easy. You now have the added stress of feeling like you failed again, but you didn’t. Commend yourself for walking away. Yes, you will still have the same financial problems from the past, but you are now in control to handle them.
No matter what, children are always hit the hardest. Lossing a parent or a segregate can be very hard on them. Explain the best you can, why this is happening. Do not make promises you cannot keep. Regardless, if those children are biological or not it will impact them emotionally and they are hurting too.
If this is your first divorce or you have been thru this before. I can assure you, they are not the same as it wasn’t the same in your relationship. If you need time for yourself, take it.
If you do not have the luxury to have time, financial matters need to be set and met. Then handle that first. Get a job, set a budget, maintained your household. Economised were you can, and do without were you can. Once you are stable enough you will be able to expand and get those added luxuries again.
Set realistic goals for yourself. Meet them head on. Do not give up. Be confidence.
You do not have to do this alone. There are others that have gone thru this and are always there to help. So seek them out. Join a support group. It helps to talk about it. You can do this.
I believe in you, and you will be okay. As I am going to be okay as well.

Election 2016 – The second presidential debate was last night. As we all know, while Hillary Clinton kept her cool and stayed focus on the issues that matter to the American Public. Donald Trump did not disappoint us with his typical ranting and putting the blame on everyone that can hold a candle. He is a real bully. He even disagrees with his own running Vice-President. This election is about Donald Trump being #1. He wants to win for himself. The Republican are at arm wits trying desperately to find a safe heaven with their candidate. In my book, Clinton is 2-0 with this big win again.
Hurricane Matthew – This was a very nasty storm. The damage and devastation it caused, hasn’t been seen in decades. I can personally tell you, we were without power. It was an ordeal to get fuel, supplies. My back yard is in shambles. My dog was terrified. My children were scared. We had no means of communication with the outside world since everything we own is run on power. We were without power for 2 a day and what save us was we are close to City Hall and I guess we are in the same grind as them. But when we lost the internet, for 2 1/2 days. If you are like me, who works using the internet this was a downpour. We give thanks, to the utilities and Brighthouse for the heroic tireless effort to restored everyone life back to normal. For those who has lost their home, our prayers are with you. Just remember, you can always rebuild, a lost life is worst.

Eating healthy can be a challenge especially if you are on a budget. If your family is not on board with you about not eating meat, sometimes you will be forced to cook double meals.
What I usually do is try to cook thing, that I can eat as well as the rest of my family.
Brown rice, whole-grain pasta, beans are a great source of good carbohydrates.
Potatoes are also a great source of protein, they are sodium free, cholesterol free, and fat-free. There are currently seven types for you to choose from ( russet, red, white, yellow,blue/purple, fingerling and petite).
Leaf greens (Kale,Collard Greens, Turnip Greens, Swiss Chard, Spinach, Mustard Greens, Broccoli, and Red and Green Leaf as well as Romaine Lettuce) might help change the boring salad bowl. They have vitamin as well as being antioxidant.
You can also shop at your local supermarket or even the Dollar Store when you want something quick and easy to fix for a snack or lunch.
You may also try the Morning Star Farm Products they are excellent (for those who want to make the transition from meat to non-meat).
“Eating right and eating healthy is the right choice in life.”
