We walk through Georgetown after deciding that a little retail therapy was our only course of action, overpriced coffees in our hands, heads thrown back in loud, uproarious laughter, a slight sway in our step that most single women have. We march store to store, rack to rack, trying on things, matching things, laughing, talking, … Continue reading Closure
It was not AT ALL my intentions to rename this page "estranged love" or whatever that says at the top there. It's still "This is What Happens...". However, for the LIFE of me I can't figure out how to change it in this new damn template. Anyone particularly good with HMTL? I'd love the help...and … Continue reading By the Way…
A few things that you all should be proud of...I got my hair re-colored. No more dark, hood rat roots!! I re-love being a blond (at a slightly darker, semi-black girl friendly hue hue.)THERE IS FOOD IN MY FRIDGE. And LOTS of it. And healthy shit too...you know, all those fruits and vegetables and shit.My … Continue reading I Promise I am not Covering my Ears and Screaming "la la la!!" at the Top of my Lungs…Wait-What Did you Say? I Had to take my Hands from my Ears
Me and the future father of my children were discussing baby names yesterday for our as yet unconceived alarmingly attractive children that we will be having in the future. I believe we decided on Sean Robert for the first boy, despite my initial discomfort with the name. (You put two and two together.) The conversation … Continue reading When the Apple Falls far From the Tree, Does it Hurt?

Which will be hard for me, because well, I like being in control. Really, you might not know me and might not believe me, but things REALLY DO go better when I'm in charge. Really. Don't just ask me... I have references!!! But that is beside the point. I realize, that I cannot, will not … Continue reading #1: I Will not Stress Over Things I Cannot Change
For anything. EVER.Unless I am actually wrong and TRULY sorry.Sometimes, I find myself so timid, so quiet that it astounds me. I have never been timid nor quiet. But there are times when I am so intimidated by some of the things I fear that it causes a complete and total change in me. I … Continue reading #2: I Will not Apologize
There is no food in my fridge. I have run out of shampoo. The vitamins I usually keep in medicine cabinet? Gone. I can't remember the last time I did anything for myself, necessity or just excess. No, like, literally can't recall the last time I did a good deed for me. Now ask me … Continue reading #3: I will Take Better Care of Myself
This will probably be the hardest for me. Because it is so inherrently in me to pull away before people leave. I used to have a boyfriend that, no matter what, he always pulled away first. No matter what we were doing, where we were, what was going on, no matter how much I wanted … Continue reading #4: I Will not be the ‘Pull Away First’ Girl
