Do you know how NOT to shoot to kill? To injure only?
Are you confident holding a gun in your hand or are you the type who would probably be terrified even touching a gun and could only see yourself doing so if you were around the gun in a situation where the gun was brought to the area you're in during a conflict of some sort?
I hate my husband! I've been married for 21 years and have taken care of our three children, one of which is not mine and one of which is high-functioning autistic. I've also worked part time during all of that time. Now he tells me he doesn't want to have sex with me because I've grown too heavy. I've developed a severe nerve disease in my pelvis that makes it impossible for me to work as hard as I used to so the house is not spotless like it once was. He tells me I don't do anything and is angry because he has to "do it all". He says he is going to wait until our youngest is in college and then consider divorce. I'm terrified of that because how can I work a full-time job with my health so compromised? But at the same time, there's a part of me that relishes the idea of kicking him to the curb. Advice anyone??
Don Lemon is where I'm from. I'm not talking about Louisiana in general...I'm talking about the small, country town I'm from. That little dot on the map. Yup...he's from the same, exact place. He's seen the same things. When he goes home to visit his family...he encounters pretty much the same things I encounter.
Apparently Don said some things which offended the hell out of some people recently. I had to go find what he said, of course:
Okay...I watched it. Did you? What do YOU think about what he said? Are you offended? Do you disagree with his comments? Does he deserve the harsh criticism the Black intelligentsia is slinging his way now while calling him Uncle Tom? Could it be simply that his words would have been more acceptable had he not tied them to Bill O'Reilly?
It is with great sadness that I tell you guys Jeanine and her daughters lost their husband and father suddenly yesterday.
They are all devastated and in need of our prayers.
I'm honestly in shock for her and feel her pain through her words in messages.
This life isn't promised to us so let's make the best of each day. Hug your loved ones and be kind to those you encounter daily as you don't know what burdens they bear. I'm dealing with a family member's loss as well and another family member's hospitalization and my spirit just plummeted even more upon hearing of Jeanine's devastating loss.
When I was a kid I wanted an Easy Bake oven. It was all I wanted that year for Christmas and I put it in my letter to Santa. My parents kept asking me if that's all I wanted and well...yeah...that's all I wanted. I just KNEW it was going to change my life.
Christmas morning came and I didn't get an Easy Bake oven. I got the Holly Hobbie oven. When Santa was picking out my presents, he realized that Holly Hobbie had so many other themed items and, since I'd only asked for one thing, it was easier for Santa to grab a bunch of the Holly Hobbie things for me.
I got a lunchbox, an apron and every single batter mix and icing packs Holly Hobbie offered. I got all sorts of cake decorating stuff along with icing tips, bags and sprinkles for days.
I was one happy little girl.
Santa SO rocks.
Last night I posted this picture of a Holly Hobbie lunchbox on FB and one of my friends shared with me that she had the sheets too. HEFFA! SHOWOFF! AIN'T NOBODY ASK YOU NUTTIN! My lip poked out for real. Color me unhappy. Santa could have got me sheets too? Why didn't he? How could he cheat me out of life's happiness that way? Can you imagine the beautiful Princess slumberation I would have had if I'd been sleeping on and under Holly Hobbie bedding?
Now that I think on it...I never got bedding with stuff on it. My bedding was always plain. Sure...it was comfortable and nice...but dammit! IT WASN'T HOLLY HOBBIE! OR BARBIE! OR...OR...STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE!
So...the next day you don't go to work because you're just so hurt. He uses his key to come in and startles you from where you are on the sofa. He has grocery bags, flowers and wine. He wanted to surprise you with dinner by the time you got home from work.
He's apologetic and wants to work it out. Says he can't deal with the drama his ex always brings to the table and that she is crazy.
That's the sentence for dude who kidnapped the teenagers in Ohio. The 1,000 extra years confuses me. Are they concerned he's going to cryogenic-ally preserve his body? Are they imprisoning ghosts now too? Just a green-mile walk with spirits only?
Sometimes the law is weird.
Oh...and yall see this Hernandez football dude done killed three people and had shot someone else while in college? Dude just been killing and chilling playing football. DA HELL????????????
How's Lucy doing is a question I get via email, text, private message and phone calls. People just think about her out the blue and ask how she is doing and send well wishes.
Well...this is what she is doing currently. Posted up outside chilling. She's not getting better but we like to think her health is declining far less than the doctors predicted because we are taking extra awesome care of her. She's still a pain in the tookus but that's always been her. LOL! She is who she is.
I decided to take my own transformation photos to see what was possible with just a few easy tweaks. About six months ago I was around 185 pounds and about 16 percent body fat. I was feeling particularly bloated on the day, so I asked my girlfriend to take a before shot. I then shaved my head, face and chest and prepared for the after shot, which was about an hour after I took the before shot. I did a few push ups and chin ups, tweaked my bedroom lighting, sucked in, tightened my abs and BOOM! We got our after shot.
I don't tell people to leave their significant others. Hell...if you're happy then I'm happy you're happy. If you're NOT happy..."there's other fish in the sea."
I'm not a yes man/woman. If you decide to share something with me and ask my DIRECT opinion...I'm going to give it to you. If you get mad I'm going to remind you that I'M NOT THE ONE WHO TREATED YOU BAD. I'm the one you asked to give you an opinion. Your not liking my opinion still doesn't mean I did you something.
Oh...and my advice is not a mandate. As ALWAYS...do whatever the heck you want to do same as I would.
I was going to let it go but then Pebbles' video came on. It was like a sign.
*WARNING FROM SIP* I USE THE WORDS GOOD HAIR IN THIS. DON'T ACT LIKE YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT. YES...ALL HAIR IS GOOD HAIR, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH...BUT DON'T "ACK" LIKE YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.
I saw Fruitvale Station a while ago and I hope you go see it this weekend. Even though you know what happens, you're going to hope, wish and pray it doesn't right up until the moment it does.
I read somewhere that they are hoping the film helps to heal our nation but I honestly don't see that. Nothing has changed since Oscar Grant's death so be prepared for the feeling of helplessness.
I will say that after I watched it, coupled with other things happening, I was driven to try and figure out a way to help the other Oscar Grant's of this world. It's a good movie and Michael B. Jordan is a star.
