Defining Moments

It’s been surreal the past 24 hours. When news broke yesterday that Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson passed away, I got pensive. I usually become this way around birthdays (mine is Sunday!), just to reflect. However,  growing a year older just as the pop icons of my youth pass away, I definitely begin to recognize my own mortality as much as theirs.

I think we all have defining moments in our lives that shaped us who were are as people. It may have been good or bad, involving love or hate, but it had an impact on us. I think one of my defining moments involving romance is my first heartbreak. When someone I cared about did something unforgivable, I think it transformed my ability to trust.

When you have someone you thought you loved do something horrible to you, it makes you second guess yourself. It was a defining moment that I continue to work through. What’s an experience that’s shaped how you are today?

If you don’t care to share your defining moments, feel free to talk about what’s on your mind. Think of today as a day to reflect, laugh, and appreciate life. Life is beautiful. Life is short.

“Good point. Either way, look where it got him.” – (i) Some fine Argentinean azz, (ii)He still has his job, (iii) and he don’t have to listen Jenny (said Forrest Gump voice)

believe he went to Argentina cuz he didn’t care. It just didn’t sound like a guy who was making family a priority with that trip.

Tru that and that wasn’t his first trip either…when the wifey was asked about her husband’s career she said “He’ll have to worry about that” and dipped.

Speaking of divorces an such Kate said she wanted to go to counseling but it was Jon who didn’t and HE was the one who filed the divorce papers….I don’t blame him.

PG- Yeah, I loveeeeee Amare. I’ll be so sad to see him and my hubby Steve Nash, but that’s the way it is. I also love D’Antoni and I think Nash would do good there as he has mastered the pic and roll under D’Antoni’s leadership. I remember one of the Arizona Cardinals players was having a “2007 Wipe Me Down Pool Party” at his house, so the place was packed with players, groupie chicks, and other people. Anyway, so me and my cousin Becki are in the pool and there were only like 4 girls including us in the pool, then some dudes started throwing girls in the pools with their clothes, shades, everything on. It was hilarious. So, shortly after it got dark, I noticed everyone going inside the house. So, my cousin and I went in to go to the bathroom and guess what…Amare’ was in there. Check this out…there were SOOOOO many groupie girls doing what I call “dos muchos” to get his attention. Don’t you know, he was sitting on the couch playing video games with 2 other dudes like he didn’t even notice! The girls were doing any and everything to get his attention and he never turned away from the tv lol. A few people didn’t know he was there until he stood up and walked into the kitchen. Dude is sooooooooo tall and skinny (but cute lol). Anyway, he was nice and my cousin actually knew him. He wanted to take pics with us which we did, but we noticed that when other people asked him, he would say no. When I first moved to Phoenix, I did a brief stint in the public relations office and when someone would call the office, I had to answer the phone by saying “Thank you for calling the America West Arena, home of the 2003 Rookie of the Year Amare’ Stoudemire, how may I help you”? LOL.

My point is that he was also told he couldn’t go to Argentina.

If you’re gonna break a “rule” break the one that at least make it look like you’re trying to work it out with your wife. :lol:

How are you going to tell someone to stay away but then tell them where they cannot go while they are staying away??? Bullshyt.

Once she told him to stay away that was it. She had no say in what he did after that. That’s the problem people trying to control other people’s lives.

What would I look like telling my husband that I don’t want him and he cannot see his daughter but he is not allowed to go do anything else either? Who am I to tell him that.

Heck once you tell me you don’t want me that’s it.

Going to see your mistress is not helping your case, if you’re trying to work it out with your wife.

PG – Right. Which is why he shouldn’t have agreed to some separation from hopes of reconsilation or working on the marriage. He could have fully gone with the route of “if I’m out, we’re through.”

Seems as he let her hold some of the cards. If he didn’t care, he should have just chucked the deuces to her demands. Especially if “divorce is coming anyway.”

If he had not lied, there would not have been any impeachment hearings. So, he could have done Sanford’s way (press conference) and avoided the whole impeachment hearings.

Lawd Jezzuz. Marriage vows does not put a leash around your spouses neck for you to manipulate them. That is all that is, manipulation.

If she wanted to “reconcile” she would not have told him to stay away. That heifer thinks of herself that she ought.

He got caught of course he is going to show remorse…look at how forgiving most americans are ( ahem, MJ)..he probably walked out of those press conferences hoped on the phone and called Argentina…I bet that girl will be stateside soon

Who said ole boy couldn’t go to Argentina?

Front page of the AJC, Kym.

South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford says she warned her husband not to see his mistress before a trip last week and was shocked he met her in Argentina anyway.

Jenny Sanford told The Associated Press that she discovered Gov. Mark Sanford’s affair in January when she found a letter from him to the other woman. She said she told him to end the affair and he agreed to.

She said that when the governor told her recently he needed time alone to write, she specifically warned him not to visit the mistress. She was shocked to learn this week that he’d gone to Argentina to do just that.

They had a letter on CNN that Jenny Sanford released saying she still loved her husband and that he earned a second chance. So even if she was not at the press conference, she is still standing by her man, if only behind the scenes.

Jenny is still being the puppetmaster and he’s going right along with it. Stupid. I don’t feel a bit sorry for either one of them. I think the whole thing is hillarious and a soap opera for the good Christian GOP. Blame lies with both of them – she’s no more the villian here than he is.

The only ones that have my sympathy are their kids cause it’s obvious that NEITHER really give a flip about them!

I was afraid to eat Five Guys for a while because the first time I heard about it my BFF’s stomach was torn up for a weekend. She surmised it was because of the Five Guys she had – and she has a stomach of steel, LOL. After that, when I would visit Atlanta she would suggest Five Guys and I was like ‘are you kidding me?!!?!?’ I can’t remember what made me finally give in and try it – but I was scared for my belly to go there :lol:

Raqi gets what I am saying, too. The reconciliation was a farce.

GOP candidates paint themselves into corners with that family values crap. Like Democrats don’t care about their families.

He is a GOP governor in the South. Probably one of the more conservative states at that. They fought for years over the placement of the confederate flag on the capital grounds.

I went to school in Columbia and sometimes it made Georgia seem as liberal as LA.

To me it’s a classic Ross vs. Rachel “we were on a break” type episode. If you’re trying to work on your relationship, you’re really not supposed to be getting azz from other people while you decided if you want to move forward or not. (and you certainly shouldn’t be getting azz from the person that was a reason for the “break” in the first place :lol: ).

But then on the flip side, you’re on a break, so explore all options. :lol:

I chose Rachel’s side.

And I don’t believe he was really torn up about missing Father’s Day.

Even though, I am not a parent. I can see it how it could affect him though.

It is probably more about control, and telling me where I can and cannot be, who I can and cannot see, etc. can get you a columbian bowtie. Now you get into the respect issue.

She got off easy in my world if she did that.
