City & State or ZIP Tonight, this weekend, May 5th...
City & State or ZIP

I resolve to live it up!

It can be pretty profound hearing about “untimely” deaths and seeing really tragic events take place right at the end of the year. I’m normally pensive and reflective as it is, but when I take a moment to consider how life really is a journey, I begin to think about making the journey more meaningful.

Life is short. Life is beautiful. Life is precious. If anything this past year has taught me, its that you can plan all you want but sometimes you have to just enjoy life as it comes.

I resolve to focus less on what is missing because it takes away from appreciating what’s not missing.

I have a propensity to plan everything and I try to take small, calculated risks (Exciting, I know, it’s how I roll!) Throwing caution to the wind can actually be a fun thing (within reason?), so I would love to see what happens when I try it.

I can only make one dating resolution that I know has a high success rate: Have fun. That’s it. What about you? Do you think making resolutions work?

What does the new year make you think about?

Leggs – well I said hun ching at first but not sure if that’s what got my post banned.

2C – yep on a school night but i’m only working half a day today anyways. Plus I didn’t think i’d wake up feeling like I was walking on a cruise ship either.

@Raqi V ~ :lol: :lol: Wasn’t born with any eyebrows. I pencil mine in. Don’t go anywhere without my eyebrows on, not even to answer the front door. But, today, I don’t give a damn. I’m a lil buzzed from last night and can’t get them on properly so I said WTF, no eyebrows for the moment. Will try again when I have to pick lil leggs up from practice.

Speaking of eyebrows, I’ll never forget the day lil leggs yelled upstairs, “Mommy, we have company put your eyebrows on.” I said Damn to myself and then laughed.

Leggs – ok a few months ago I noticed a young lady with drawn in eyebrows. I was a bit disturbed to see that it was apparent she failed to bring her umbrella to work that day. The rain messed her up real bad….Not sure if you’ve ever experienced that but rain and penciled-in eyebrows definitely do NOT go together. Poe thang!! :lol:

@SlimO ~ no, rain never messed with mine YET. I do check around lunch time to make sure they’re still intact. I’m prone to rub my forehead when my boss gets under my skin (almost err day) so I need to check the mirror to make sure they don’t turn into a unibrow!

Did any of you catch the news yesterday and saw the segment of a woman being dragged into the woods of No.Decatur Road and sexually assualted? It was my best friend. She wasn’t raped, but he held a gun to her head and had her unzip his pants and place in her mouth. He told her if she bit him he would shoot her. I rushed to her home yesterday morning and have been talking with her through the night and this morning. I don’t know how else to comfort her but be her sounding board.

@SlimO ~ yes, it’s very noticeable. When people would look at my childhood pics most would say “something’s missing?” Not until I point out I don’t have any eyebrows does the person then notice.

Leggs - No Eyebrows

But, now that I’m an adult, I’m bothered by not having any eyebrows so it’s very noticeable to me.

““Mommy, we have company put your eyebrows on.” I said Damn to myself and then laughed.”

That reminds me of my cousin. Her daughter is like, mommy, are you gonna wair your good hair since we are going to church? :lol: She has a crap load of wigs and stuff.

Off topic…since some of you guys are getting your NYE party started early….I think I will on the plane back to Atlanta tonight. You know the Northeast is jacked up Aviation wise.

Tenderoni Me and the lil princess will probably go to my sister’s house and bring in the new year. So, you’re a wine drinker? What’s your preference?

You know the Northeast is jacked up Aviation wise.
BMW yeah I heard the snow got ya’ll twisted. Hey, can you bring me back a pastrami sammich from Carnegie Deli and a slice (or two) of Junior’s Cheesecake? Also, get a cooler so you can bring me back a piragua. lol

@Dreams- I’m fairly new to the wine thing, the last guy I was with drank it a lot so he put me on. He left a bottle of some kind of white wine I like at my place, so I will be finishing that off.

Thats sounds great, the lil princess should enjoy time with Daddy!

Slim…they are from NC…so they say “wair” instead of wear. :lol: Yes. chile…goota look gud fo’ da Lawd! :lol:

Now I gotta go home and put my booze in travel toiletry bottles. I am not paying the airlines any more money! :lol: They don’t feed me and then charge me if I check a bag. They can kiss my a$$!

DREAMS you are crazy man! :lol: I have a friend who wants me to go to The Halal Guys (Chicken & Rice) and bring him a plate! I swear there is always a friggin’ line to the cart. As a child when my mom went to the cart to buy a hotdog and asked me if I wanted one, I said, “No mami. Those are dirty”? She said, “how do you figure that”? I said, “Well, where do the guys pee? And when they are done….where do they wash their hands”? Needless to say…..she never ate from the cart again! :lol:

I know….I could spoil a wet dream couldn’t I???? :lol:

@BlastFTP ~ I thought of that award as Best Blog Scandal, but was veto out of using it.

Dang went to drugstore to finishing using my exhubby’s flex medical card before they take back the money if not used by 12/31 and who woulda thunk you couldn’t get vitamins with the darn thing.

It feels like ghost town. The kids are not here. Two of my besties are out of the country so I can’t call them. My other bestie is at work so I can’t talk to her. I have called the hub like 4 times. He asked me if I am bored. LOL

I was just talking to one of my neighbors at the mailbox.

Does saying “thanks for the invitation” means I am saying we will attend?

She came over to tell me they are having a NYE party and we are welcomed to come. We have nothing planned but to stay home. Just the hub and I. Being that they are just across the street we could go over for an ½ hour or so.
