To The Tik Tok You Don’t Stop

It’s been quite a Summer. As I said before, emotionally It’s been hell. I took the children for annual physicalsl exams and Shug has been diagnosed with depression.

Remembering Narha

For those who follow me across social media, you know that my mother passed away on May 5th. My daughter woke me up and told me her grandmother was laying across her(my daughter’s) bed unresponsive. I went in the room, saw Mom, called 911 and performed chest compressions for around 20 minutes until EMTs arrived…

Untitled Book

Let me just say: I have always been against adults writing memoirs/biographies when they’re younger than 50. I know by that age we have TONS of life experience but in my mind, we still have so much more to live, it just doesn’t make sense to me to write a book about our lives when…

Social Distance? Not A Problem.

So we’ve had a rough week. It started with Amani catching a stomach virus from Avery. Avery threw up 3x on Saturday afternoon and got a little dehydrated and looked overall just pale and clammy. Then,my mom starts throwing up early Sunday evening followed by Amani. For awhile they were neck in neck on sprints…
