Teenagers...Yuck!

Yesterday I was at the park with Nehemiah and Raheem and once again we had to leave early because of frickin teenagers. I don't even think these girls were teenagers, more like rude preteens. These girls were cussing at an adult and eventually the woman called the cops. I understand that parks are public places, but come on! It's not fair to the younger kids when they can't enjoy the playground because the teenagers are acting like jerks. The language was inappropriate and some of these girls were dressed like Aubrey O'Day! I vote that all teens (unless accompanied by an adult) be banned from the park...well all teens except my nieces and nephew of course lol!

My Weekend

1.) On Saturday I spent a few hours with a great sister in Christ. We prayed and shared on the goodness of Jesus. We also shared on our trials and some things we are facing. This relationship is a blessing to me because at the end of each conversation I feel stronger and I am reminded of the promises that God has for me.
Some times I forget to look back to where God has brought me from. It is not by my own strength that I am where I am today. I realized that I've made some compromises in my walk and I refuse to let it happen again. I cannot hide who I am or doubt what I believe. I am reminded of Peter, who denied Jesus when it counted the most. However, Peter was redeemed and forgiven as am I. I will continue to stress that, "As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord!" ~Joshua 24:14

2.)The weather was fabulous, so I took Nehemiah, Raheem (my nephew), and my two nieces Irisa and Ashanti to the carnival. It was expensive, but the kids loved it! We met up with some family and had a blast. Nehemiah and I got to wear our summer clothes and I finally shaved my legs!

3.) Yesterday we had Sunday dinner at my parent's house and it was great as usual. There's nothing better than spending time with family. I am so blessed.

Good Bye Frank

Well I've managed to do it again...I killed Frank. Don't worry he's a plant, not a person! Sorry Nic, I tried. I got a new plant to take Frank's place, too bad that poor plant has no idea what its in for. Wish me luck!

I talked to Nehemiah a bit ago and he is really having a hard time being away from home. I know he's fine with his dad, but my mama bear instinct is to leave the office and go get my boy! I need this trial run before Hawaii (22 days) otherwise I will not enjoy myself for worrying about my kid. I have never been a fan of being away from home and I don't want him to be the same way, so I know I need to be strong and get through this week. I don't know whose more upset, him or me.

Funny Story

Thursday morning Nehemiah was reading a book to me. As he was reading, I realized that he was saying F*&$! I said, "Nehemiah don't say that word cause it's a cuss word." He looked at me in all seriousness and said, "Mom I not cussing, the book is." What do you say to that?
I'm feeling much better and I have a voice again! The weather is fantastic, but too bad I'm inside doing eighty loads of laundry, and when that's finish I may even attempt to clean my apartment (probably not).

I feel so incredibly blessed today and it's for the small things that I am ever so grateful for. I complain a lot about what I don't have, and I tend to forget the things I do have.

I have an amazing family whose love for me and Nehemiah often takes my breath away.

I have friends who lend me their strength when I feel too weak to make it on my own. Strong women who face fears with smiles on their faces.

Last, but definately not least, I have an amazing son who makes me look at life through an entirely different lens. A son who absolutely pleased with just sitting down in the bathtub each night playing with toys.

I may not have money to buy all the things that my heart desires (like a Coach bag), but I sure have a lot more than some people.

I have a lot of love in my life and that makes it all worth it.

I've been sick again for a week, which means I haven't been in the office, which means I will have a horrible paycheck.

I'm totally freaking out about money right now especially because I leave for Hawaii in 27 days. I hate this so much! Excuse my self loathing, but I don't know what to do differently to fix my financial situation. I'm totally aware that if you keep doing the same things the same way, you get the same results. I wish I could snap my fingers and BAM, everything in my life seems to fall into place. I'm broke, I'm single, and I'm frickin' sick. Gosh am I to be envied!

So I just became a "follower" to some really cool blogs, which made me come to the realization that in fact my blog blows! Help please!!!!!

Some possible good news, I may be moving into my neighbor and friend's home, which is next door. How cool is it that I wouldn't need a moving truck!
