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. Her doctor wants to take care of that immediately and its been classified as a crisis. Her weight is also an issue because of the depression and…

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…

Moving In Silence

Those of you who follow me regularly probably noticed I’ve been avoiding talking too much personal stuff. The last few posts are book or food related. That was intentional because I was kind of sitting on a secret…I’M MOVING!!! I mean literally moving. After months of searching,my mom’s health issues and COVID 19, we finally…

Because Apparently Life Isn’t Complicated Enough

Hey mamas! I pray you all are still safe and thriving during this time. I am grateful to God that my family has still remained unaffected by the Coronavirus. Despite talk of reopening amongst government officials, I have kept vigilant with keeping the children inside and cleaning vigorously. However, we have still been affected by…

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…

January 2020 Goals

I know I’m about two weeks late with this post but I had to really think about what my goals are for this month. I wanted to wait until I got into the groove of yet another new routine where I’m at 4:30 in the morning. This last week proved very exhausting physically but I…

November Wrap Up& December TBR

Hey, bookworms! Despite an event filled month, I actually did finish 3 books. The last two I finished during my now longer commute to school drop off for my oldest. Once Ive dropped her off, Avery usually naps on the ride back home which gives me about an hour to read. There’s a silver lining…
