It was a leap year this year. I hope you leaped and did something good for yourself. I am doing okay taking one day at a time. My kids are up and down but we have gotten into a rhythm. We pray and tell dad good night every night. At dinner we keep up the same tone with asking everyone how was their day and when it was dad’s turn we each take a turn and guess what he did that day up in heaven. So far it’s been peaceful and calm so we are good with that. One day at a time is my motto! Here whats going on in my world.
- We’ve been busy since the death of my husband. People have invited me places, I have been ripping and running all week and weekend. I have never moved so much in my life. With the movement comes the fact that I lost 10lbs. I know that I can eat right……..my problem has always been the moving part. If I move the weight will shed. I know this, my body knows this, but dammit I am tired as hell and want to sit my lazy ass behind my computer. *big sigh* I will continue to move though. I am not trying to get right for the summer that shipped sailed years ago but I will continue to move right so that I can at least run if a bear is after me without falling out.
2. This man won the lottery…….he then was killed a few months after he won the money. Let’s talk about this………
Money is nice. We have to have it but please don’t show off or tell everyone. I hate that you have to show your face when it comes to winning the lottery. I think they have a plan in place to where if you pay some money you can remain anonymous…trust me I will pay. I am not a money hungry person. You will never know if I have money in the bank because I walk around dressed in my sweats with my hole in my shirt at all times. I never show off, I don’t wear it on me as far as clothes and shoes are concerned, I don’t buy expensive things, I don’t drive around in the most expensive car, etc. When you have money it’s best to keep a low profile and tell very few….few meaning no more than 2-3 people. Don’t run around telling everyone, don’t flash it on social media, don’t brag about it. Kita does not have money so let me make that plain right now lol. I work hard for what I do have and I save and buy frugally. Do I buy expensive things….only if it’s on sale and it’s something that I can keep for years to come. If it’s a trend I don’t buy, purses…chile please Target has some great looking ones, shoes…now that I do buy because I have wide feet so I can’t buy the cheap ones. That is the most expensive piece of clothing you will see in my closet are my shoes. It’s precisely why I only have 5 pairs total (not including my flip flops that I have in every color) because when I buy shoes I keep them for years and years and years. Don’t show off if you ever win the lottery.
3. I have been taking pictures here lately and trying my hand at different photoshoots. I do occasionally take photos of people but I am not a huge fan. I love when I do events more or product photoshoots. Here is a recent shot of a maternity photoshoot that I did. Photos are great to take as they help keep memories alive. Always try to do photos for special occasions even if it’s just getting a friend to take some shots with a better camera than your phone. My phone sucks at taking pictures so I don’t use it often. I enjoyed taking these shots of the happy couple whose due next month!
4. This women has cancer and she is choosing to hit the road. I love that she says fuck cancer and she is living the rest of her life her way. I hate cancer it took my mother and a few more people that I know. I am not a huge fan of cancer as it sucks. The chemo takes more life out of you than life itself. My mom choose not to take anymore treatments because she was tired. At first I didn’t agree I was like fight but you know once your kids are grown and you have lived your life on your terms……it’s time to rest. I would never want my mother to suffer through another bout of chemo so she is now resting. I commend this women for living her own life on her terms. Some of us don’t even do this today and we don’t have cancer………………………………..
