My Blog is about many things, adult adoptee, autism, family, laughter, and love, feel free to follow me on my journey, and look through my archives. It takes more than one subject to define me or my family. We are a mixture of a bit of everything!
Just wanted to say hi to all the blog family I've come to know and love. I've been extremely busy lately. Wasn't that suppose to end when School started? Anyhoo...I see your comments and I am not ignoring you. Thank you for still stopping by! Big shout out and love to my BFF bloggers, to SPD (sensory processing disorder) blogging family, and to all my loyal Weekend Warriors & Special Needs Persons and Families! My posts will be coming back soon! I will be visiting blogs again next week. I am busy planning a Back to School Autism Picnic. I'm sure many of you remember how busy I was last time. Thank gawd its fun stress and the picnic was a great Success! But, stressful nonetheless.
(this is me... if i were white, my 12 yr old boy was a little girl*, if I could actually hold my 32lb. toddler, and if I had enough energy for a pet too... but ya get the idea, right? C'mon work with me here!! *let it be known if my 'typical' kid ever stuck their tongue out at me, i'd probably be in handcuffs! While holding the baby and cooking dinner of course!)
Our picnic is Saturday. So beginning next week I will be back to my old self. Posting and Commenting. Thank you for your never ending support! Much love and hope all of you and your families are doing well!
P.S. special thanks Brittney, Mama Fargo, Kisha, and Penny for bringing it hard on Skinny Jeans. Without y'all jabbing at my competitive spirit I wouldn't of been able to lose as much as I have!!! Thanks Amber & Brittany Ciara (NYAT) for starting SJ... y'all rock!!
"I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life." I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one. I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but,
people will never forget how you made them feel." ~Maya Angelou
If you could interview any person Dead or Alive who would it be? What would you ask?
Janis Joplin...whom i truly adore and feel empathy for... with that said, i would ask her this....
"You were a hardcore feminist. You were a woman who claimed to know herself and feel comfortable with who you were... Women knew you evolved in the era of sex, drugs, and rock and roll... However, let's call a spade a spade.... your generation's combination of drugs and music was as nonchalant and expected as receiving ketchup with an order of fries. With that said... you were a force to be reckoned with. You spoke the truth, albeit through slurred speech which was the norm for your decade but let us not forget those who made it through the storm... i think i saw Mick Jagger on a Viagara/Chapstick Commercial. So, no disrespect, but your truth, when you spoke it........ millions of women believed it. The women at that time wanted to believe you were strong and fighting for them. You've been quoted numerous times as saying 'Don't compromise yourself. You are all you got.' Yet you died of a Heroin Overdose. What really happened to make you seek an escape, how did you really feel? How did you as a feminist get to the point where you felt you weren't worthy. And how can we protect our sisters, daughters, nieces, and grand-daughters from your mishaps?"
You have to give up one thing for a month.What would it be - car, guilty pleasure (ie. food, drink, fav. tv show), or sex?
This question i have to answer a little differently. Your asking me if I HAVE to give up one thing. In reality if we could answer that... we'd give it up. It's basically saying that we get to choose. So, I am going to look at it like this... if one thing was taken from me and I had no access to it for a month what would those closest to me said i need to stop....
Worrying. Yeah I know it sounds lame but worrying constantly can kill you....
i'd like to live.....
Is there a word/phrase you say that you are made fun of for? If so, what is it?
Hella.. hahaha click on hella the urban definition is funny because when i lived in the bay they use to make fun of me for saying it! Awwwwww i miss bein' a youngin'!
Which is a stronger emotion: Anger or Love?
Where was your first job.
The Federated Group. Don't Hate........
Luv 2 luv Shadoe... c'mon don't judge... gimmie a break it was the 80's!!!!
My BFF since for 27 years.... Kit Kat (Caterina) got me the job..... thats mah gurl........
Kit Kat & Foxy Roxy

Do You Wear Socks to Bed?
(sometimes google is not your friend)
Do you have any Pets?
Either Pets or kids, i don't do both. (message to my kids.. run baby run.. and Tafari... hopefully the mtn. lion knows how to sign... mama will meet you at the bottom of the mountain m'kay?)
What Topping do you like on your Pizza...
