Adventures: Online Dating

One of my friends persuaded me to try online dating.  I was very leery about doing such a thing because you hear the horror stories and get skeptical.  So, I said what hell and decided to try it out.  I found a website that was being pushed by Facebook, yea I know; probably the wrong place to start!  However, it wasn’t that bad of a starting point.  

During the whole time I am creating my profile, my conscious is whispering in my ear; I can’t believe you are doing this!  I moved right on along, paid my conscious no attention at all and came up with a cleaver description about myself.  I wanted my profile to be honest and leave a little room for prospects to want to explore more about me.  I know; I am a little sneaky!

Dating My Television

With some new and old television shows on air, I have found myself being attracted to my television, lately.  I rush home to cook (depending on the mood) work out, then I am either on the sofa or in my comfy bed lusting after my new lover.  Everyday “he” draws me in by displaying shows that makes me happy.  It all starts with;


My Lover starts my week off with True Blood, Empire Girls, Drop Dead Diva and Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Empire Girls is my newly added reality show.  It is about Adrienne Bailon from the Cheetah Girls and her best friend Julissa Bermudez from 106th & Park.  This show doesn’t seem like it is scripted at all unlike the Kardashians’ show.  In return, it reminds me of how my friends and I get down, very relatable.  It airs on the Style network.  Check out the details: 

Next, Drop Dead Diva is about a beautiful diva that dropped dead and came back to life as a voluptuous attorney that is hard core.  Oh trust me she is divatized.  It is a humors show you will definitely add to your Sundays. Check it out:

Mission 15

A couple of months ago, I created a challenge for myself. I named the challenge, Mission 15.   Mission 15, is to lose fifteen pounds by the end of June.  I created this mission because I noticed that my clothing has gotten a little tight for my liking.  Everyone else says I look great at my current weight.  However, it isn’t what they see; it is what I am comfortable with about myself.  And no, I am not losing weight for ANYONE!  I want that swimsuit ready body; I am in a wedding in November and severely want to get rid of my “muffin top”!  

Therefore, a friend and I began walking around the college campus where I work. Also, when we couldn’t get together, I walk around my neighborhood or a track located at a nearby school.  After I completed my walk and get home I would complete an ab workout.  We had been doing a great job, until the April showers begin to roll in.  So we began to put the walks off as well as my laziness settled in.

Single Parenting: My Proudest Moment

Last month, my eldest son graduated from high school.  An unexplainable emotion came over me.    Hearing his name being called when he walked across the stage to receive his diploma was my proudest moment.  Even though he has won awards, been on television, played in a high school bowl game and was selected All –Metro quarterback, nothing compared to that moment. Right then, I knew I didn’t have a baby anymore and he completed phase one of his life’s journey.   

He was offered a full athletic scholarship to play football at a college in Arizona, which is a twenty-two hour drive away.  Yay, I get to clean his room, cook less food and keep my car parked with gas in it! However, I will miss him. He has been my protector and my “father-figure” when it came to men, overprotective at times.  I will not have that “strong male” in the house to cut the grass, take out the garbage and protect me from the gecko lizards. Yes, I am afraid of geckos; basically anything that moves! I will miss seeing and fussing with him, every day.
