Falling in love?

Some people don’t handle falling in love well. It can be an exhilarating, wonderful experience. However, there are also times when it makes you, well.. stupid. Or perhaps just foolishly in love.

I call this the “caught up” stage because this is when you make dumb decisions, overlook red flags and basically toss out all rationale and logic as you fall head over heels.

My inner control freak wonders, is there a way to soften the blow when you fall in love? Is it possible to contain and manage your emotions so you won’t make choices you may regret later?

What do you when you feel yourself headed in the direction of “head over heels” or intense feelings for someone? Many guys have told me they ignore it…as long as they can. They sort of prolong the inevitable – a woman having power over them, or impacting their lives in a major way. Does that work? If it does, I will totally try it!

Ladies, what happens after you realize you are falling for someone?

The biggest scare I’ve ever had was when we took my kid to Dave and Buster’s for her birthday…of course her dad’s request, she was turning six. Not exactly my choice but hey I was keeping the peace. Well, I walk away and she’s with him and I come back and ask where she was and he was like, um over there. OVER WHERE?!?! Because looking “over there” I didn’t see here. Talk about panick and fear. I was running through that place like a mad person. I found here playing a game but how about we packed it up at that point. I was sooo through with him. If you ask him today, he would probably still say I overreacted. Nuh uh, somebody can grab a child in a couple of seconds. I spent the next few years keeping her clutched closed by.

although I do understand why parents would do that…these kids want to things by themselves….Like to show that they’re grown up…my son will say,’no Daddy,I wanna do it by myself’,and he’s only 6!

So for a nine year old,he may have been pressing his parents a lil too hard.

This parenting business,u learn from the mistakes of others really.

Sad!

Celisea – Growing up, the lady next door told us about how someone grabbed her baby boy out of the stroller! She was at Riches looking at something at the jewelry counter. The stroller was right by her side but facing the other way. She looked down and baby was gone! She went to screaming!! Security blocked all the exits out of the store. Sure enough, they caught this old lady hunched over with the baby in her arms, about to walk out of the store with him!! :(

My little 2 year old niece ran out of the house after my mom & stepdad left w/o my sisters knowledge. My sister was calling for her and looking for her everywhere thinking she was hiding, and something told her to check outside. When she saw that my niece had opened the front door to run behind my mom, she tore her little butt up. It totally freaked her out. I don’t know if i have that kind of patience for a kid because my fear would make me want to probably kill my child to keep them from being hurt by someone else lol

Sharing ur man with another worthy phine lady(another wife) is better than sharing ur man with a skank ho or biaatch or worse,with another man(read Some Atlanta men) or boys.(EL)

Coz ALL men cheat but polygamists Don’t coz ALL their women are regular!

and from a purely practical point of view,the statistics don’t favor u coz there are wasaaaay too many of u worthy ladies competing for a tiny popn of worthy men like myself.

EXILED…sharing is sharing and either way it’s nasty! I don’t do sloppy seconds, unless tha b@stard cheats and I don’t know. but I have my ways of finding out. And when I have found out…well let’s just say it did not end pretty! I can be your dream or your nightmare! So if a guy plans on having more than one woman, he might as well kick rocks! I will NOT stand for it. I’m sure no dude would stand for me as his girl or wife sharings my goods with someone else. And please don’t come with the double standard crap. Men CHOOSE to cheat. There is no dark force that makes them do it. They do it because they are greedy animals who try to place blame on anything to justify being nasty! I’d rather die alone than to devalue myself by dealing with a cheater. That is a dealbreaker. i will NOT forgive you. So it’s best that a guy remove himself from my life before I do!

And now that Oprah is done, I’m loving all those re-run last season shows that air at 2(am)ish where she’s just plain ole frank as well as the interviewee. Getting out all that unsaid stuff and wrapping loose ends. I like her probably more now than ever. No more fluff, no need to make a name as that’s established and nothing to lose :)

If each day is like a gift, I’d like to know where to return Monday.

When I can’t sleep I drink hot cocoa, or wine if i’m out of cocoa. I’m out of cocoa a lot.

I had a hard time getting enough hors d’oeuvres for my dinner party last night. The woman handing out the samples at the grocery store was tougher than she looked.

When I called it a “Girls night out”, what I meant was that I was not going to wear a bra.

I try to get a full serving of fruits and veggies every day….a bloody mary and a strawberry daiquiri usually do the trick.

for the duration that she was in Atlanta,they have messed up a whole lotta kids,including some in colleges now!

I was reading a blog about kids outa Stlanta struggling with English and Math,taking remedial classes in college.

She ran a scam for financial gain to teachers etc!
No way u can be blind to that widespread cheating unless u blind,or just plain incompetent!

The improvements were too steep for her not to ask a simple question:

What are u guys doing that’s different from previously?

then observe it in action by visiting the school classrooms.

I hear all this hoopla surrounding cheating. The real crux is that those kids are failing and falling behind so many other counties, states and countries. Now they would allow those kids to score with no assitance a VERY small percentage will pass, leaving the vast majority to fail. I see the real problem is that we’ve abandoned teaching…teach for real. Good teachers, inspiring and innovative. Too, where are the parents? Right..crickets right here. So, IMO the principals and teachers resulted to panick. Get those kids pushed through the best way they could. While it’s wrong to cheat, that ain’t the crux of the problem. The question should be asked, why so much and why so widespread and then throw the covers back to see what’s REALLY going on. I had to dang near teach my own kid all the way through and up this far. Think about alllll those kids who don’t have the luxury of a parent that cares enough to stay with it all the way through. I had to take her back to the very basics in just about every subject. I had to buy work books from the school box and work through summers and what not. The quality of teaching is nonexistance within APS.
