Shaken, but I will not be broken...

I just noticed that I have only had one posting this month. That is a shame. It's conference season again and my life is not my own. Working crazy hours. Putting up with HER. Only seeing my home in the dark. And most of all missing the heck out of Maxwell and Idris (for those of you who don't know that is my bed and my sofa). I hope to spend some much needed QT with my men soon.

I have never been so happy to see Friday!! It's a long weekend and I plan to make the best of it. I've been working slave hours this week and feel so drained. The weather is going to be nice and the taste of the sun from yesterday lifted my spirits tremendously.

Right now I just can't wait until the last day of the conference, March 9!!! This is also Ash Wednesday and the day that Biggie died. Very symbolic!! The old me will die and return to ashes and dust and the new me will be reborn. I have so many plans for spring and summer. Big thangs poppin!!! My birthday, family weddings, dresses and heels, vacations, a half-marathon, flirting and more and more fun in the sun. This will be my focus as I try to refrain from cussing some folks out and losing my job. LOL!

Pray for me....See ya'll after March 9!!

I'll take the smell of roses over ish any day!!!

I was just talking to a girlfriend of mine and had a revelation....

We were talking about the song "Treat You Right" by Luther and how we so want a man who will do just that. I told her that it's so funny how we can say this now when for so long we accepted less than we deserved. Ain't it funny how you can smell ish for so long that you just get used to it? Doesn't even burn your nose anymore. Then when it's finally gone and tries to come back around, the smell is so strong you can't even open the front door!!!!

Now the sad part for me is that since I have been smelling the same ish for years and years, my nose does not know how to take something that's not funky. I'm questioning when someone comes around and smells like roses. That's a shame.

I'm just sitting here shaking my head on this one....P, you gotta do better....Appreciate that sweet smell and make sure you water those flowers so they grow girl!

Sometimes you gotta kick yourself in the butt!

Still learning,
