My Life



Watching: Golden Girls. I have seen each episode at LEAST 10 times. And I still watch. It’s hilarious! Blanche is over sexed, Rose is just quacky, Dorothy has the best facial expressions, and Sophia….. This is just MUST SEE TV. And right now, TV Land has a marathon EVERY day!
Listening To: Well, I WISH I was listening to Jay-Z’s Magna Carter. But I am team iPhone. Sooo……who downloaded it and wants to let a sister hear it??
Planning: Our vacation at the end of the month. We are going to Florida. On the agenda: a beach, a pool and Disney. Do you know how much them damn tickets cost?????? LAWD! I almost fell out of my chair when I realized that we were going to be paying around $300 for the three of us! How is that affordable Disney???? But I digress. I can’t wait to see Pookah’s face when we get there. He talks about going to Disney almost daily. He is going to loose.his.mind.
Thinking About: My Daddy. They finally let him out of the rehab on Friday. Two days early. His 50th high school reunion was this weekend, and my mother told them that she thought his mental wellbeing would be at risk if they didn’t let him go. SMH. But he is getting much better. Walking, talking, cursing. Still having a few memory problems and basic issues, but ok. I called him on his cell phone one day and it took him three tries to answer the phone. When I asked what happened, he said, quite plainly, ” Shawn, I don’t remember how to use this damn cell phone. Your momma hasn’t taught me that yet.” SMH. Love him.
Looking Forward To: Going to Essence Festival NEXT year. Because for two years in a row, I have sat by and read the tweets and the Facebook posts and seen the pictures and I am OVER IT! Just saying. So…who wants to meet me there next year?
Reading: Shantaram: A Novel My friend recommended it. It’s 944 pages………. I wasn’t prepared, but it’s good. Not your average happy go lucky novel, and it’s really really wordy. Descriptive. I’ve just started so I’ll update you all later with a real review.
Making Me Happy: Pookah got a big boy bed this weekend! He was hanging off of the side of the toddler bed and was just too long for it. He kept appearing in our room in the middle of the night because he was uncomfortable. So Saturday morning, we just went and got him a new mattress. His bed is his crib, that converted to the toddler bed, that converted to the full size bed he is sleeping in now. I just KNEW that bed was a good investment!

So that’s what’s currently going on in my life. How about you guys? What’s going on?

    I never got into Golden Girls…..but I’ve been singing the theme song all weekend. Random, i know. I don’t even know how I know the words!

    We wanted to do Disney SO.BAD, but we decided to wait until Zoe is at least 3. I can’t wait!

    That’s excellent news about your dad. He sounds like mine with that cell phone, lol!

    I’ve been jealous of the Essence tweets all weekend!

    Yaay for big boy beds!

    Golden Girls are always in my tv playlist rotation for all the reasons you listed.
    The one time I’m not a fan of being team iPhone:( Can we live?!
    Disney has lost their minds with ticket prices. I want to take RJ for his 5th birthday. So, I have time to save. I can’t wait to see the pictures of Pookah in all his Disney delirium!
    Again, I’m with you on Essence! I want to go. Gotta see if I can get my ducks in a row for that one.
    I’m currently attempting to read Wild Seed…I tried 10 years ago and I’m going to try again.
    Yay for Pookah’s big boy bed! RJ’s bed is also a 3-way convertible. They are great!

    Glad to hear dad is doing much better. We can’t afford Disney for 2 kids so we won’t go until we can spend at least a week down there and go to all the parks and really enjoy it. Its about time we got something before y’all iphone users …I still have not heard the album yet Jay is just old to me. I have heard essence is awesome and would love to take a girl trip out there but my friends and I stay so busy we can never schedule a good time *sigh*

    LOVE the Golden Girls! Right now, I am on a Murder, She Wrote kick, too. Good and clean television!
    You guys will have a blast at Disney! I agree, the ticket prices are kind of shocking, and not very affordable… but once you get inside, you will see that you are paying for more than just rides and entertainment. It’s a whole experience!
    Congrats on the big boy bed transition! 🙂 They grow too fast, don’t they?
    I hope that your father continues to heal and grow stronger every day.

    I’m down for Essence Festival in 2014.
    What’s sad is I never went when I lived in MS and it was a 2 hour drive. Now we’ll have to trek 8 hours, but I’m all for a kid-free experience.
    Seriously. I’m down.

    I got turned on to GOlden Girls when I was in college and I have been all in ever since. Dorothy is the absolute BEST. Her snark was unparalleled.

    Disney is a big boy trip. We havent taken the plunge yet. Cant wait to hear how it goes.

    Glad to hear your father is doing better. Thats always good news.
