How To Keep Your Crap Together In 2017

Let’s face it: 2016 was a hot mess. We lost a bunch of honored and admired celebrities. Our childhood heroes were being challenged, alleged and infamously uncovered. The black community suffered again and again and again. Our FB friends showed they asses and we had to block, unfollow, delete, curse out, etc.… READ THE REST

I Can’t Say No

My life is crazy. When people ask “how are you doing?” I used to respond with “busy” but I think busy is a common response; so I say “life is crazy.” Ask my husband, he will confirm it. For some reason I picked three careers that have to be the most inconsistent.… READ THE REST

Confessions of a bad wife

My husband knew what he was getting into before he asked me to marry him. Perhaps that’s why he took so long to decide. I am an unstoppable force. This I think is due to the fact that I was raised by a community of strong women who didn’t let anyone tell them no.… READ THE REST

It’s no secret. Bad things happen and it always feels like it’s happening to you. Doors constantly slammed in your face and the rain cloud never goes away. You are scared to go to bed because of the shit you will have to deal with in the morning.… READ THE REST

You don’t know me

Love,

Wondering who gets me on Christmas

 

Dear peering through the bars of what used to be your crib,

Momma and Daddy tried to get you excited about the new baby, but it sure made you angry when you could no longer crawl onto Mommy’s lap at bedtime.… READ THE REST

confetti-1853539_960_720

It happened again, I was working behind the bar and I heard a familiar voice, It was a man spitting vitriol about marriage: the words are sometimes different, but they always say the same thing.
