You Want Me To GIve Up What, Now?!

February 22, 2012

Today is Ash Wednesday and the beginning of the Lenten season. I'm not Catholic, but at times I do give up something in these 40 days that is really a sacrifice. I love making promises to God to give up vices that are not for my good anyway. Last year, I spent Lent reading The Purpose Driven Life and starting to get my walk with Christ on track. During this time, I go into prayer, fasting and charity. I know that I should do this year round (and for the most past I do....well except the fasting part), but I make special effort at Lent.

This year I was approached by my twitter play cousin, @ShaiUnfiltered, about taking a reality TV break for Lent. I went into immediate protest, lol. I'm a little obsessed with trashy reality shows, but they have been making me a little weary. Sometimes I get stressed out by seeing black women behaving badly for a check. It works my nerves so much that I end up fussing at the TV. This has caused Boo Thangto stop wanting to watch TV with me....or when he does, he refuses to let me enjoy it! I would keep watching it to get a rise out of him (rebellious spirit...can't help it), but that first reason is enough to let me know that I should give it up.

I have a Twitter support system, so I should be good to go. The fact that Boo Thang thinks I'll break after week 2 is also motivation.

Here are the rules:
  1. No VH1! (Let's be honest....they are the world's worst. I can't even watch the channel for fear that I will get stuck)
  2. No reality programming where there are fight involved or any drama that happens for absolutely NO REASON!
  3. Positive reality shows are excluded (Say Yes To The Dress, The Voice and the like)
  4. Valid from Ash Wednesday to Palm Sunday. 40 DAYS.
Wish me luck!!!

Tuesday Randoms

February 21, 2012

1. I know I haven't blogged in a LONG time! Still trying to get adjusted to working 8 hours and having a life after I clock out. It's the struggle. All That time being unemployed has greatly put me at a disadvantage. Did I say that the pay is absolutely friggin awesome?!?! I've never made this much money in one pay period in my entire life! I'm not even getting commision yet! I can also see how a person would get stuck there.....gotta make sure I remember what I'm here for.

2. If I've said it before, I've said it a million times.....I'M READY TO MOVE! Looking at my take home, we're set to go by the end of next month.

3. Relationships are ahrd....ESPECIALLY when you've been together for a long time. Communication seems to be a struggle. People get too comfortable. Troubled times have shown me that there is no one else that I'd rather go though this stuff with than Boo Thang. (Even though I'm sure we'd like to strangle each other sometimes!)

4. One day Daddy is in love with his wife, the next day I'm supposed to draw up his divorce papers (this is another post in itself). I've decided that I no longer want to be involved or kept abreast of the foolishness....because that is exactly what it is. Some folks need to grow the hell up.

Happy Tuesday!!

Time Flies.....

February 12, 2012

February 9th marked me and Boo Thang's 5th anniversary. WOW! It doesn't even seem like it's been that long at all. I guess they say time flies when you are having fun. We have had our share of ups and downs, but we are still going strong.

We spent this whole weekend holed up at the Marriott (thank God for employee perks!) just enjoying each other's company, staying warm, being BY OURSELVES, and catching up on much needed rest. Sometimes I think I am making him old. We even stayed up all night jamming to Whitney Houston songs (that is a whole other post). I surprised him with a romantic setup that almost made him cry. That means the world to me.

I can't wait for the rest of our story to unfold. I'm still excited when I see him. He still gives me goosebumps when we kiss. I love him. I truly do.
