mind dumping

I, too, am furious over the cartoon in the New York Post. I wish there was a way to say that this issue will blow over, but I highly doubt it. Racism is a long-standing issue in this country and as long as there are even just a few to fuel that fire, it will always be there. Yes, we elected a black president, which shows a progressive move by many Americans, but that doesn't mean other folk are happy about it. The sad reality is thatPresident Obama is going to be at the root of a lot more attacks like this one.

I was in Target the other night and saw two different white mothers snapping on their kids. Why did that amuse me? I think it's because I'm so used to seeing white mothers be rather and overly passive in terms of disciplining their children in public; if at all. I'm chuckling just thinking about it.

So, how is it that I had a Rx for 4 pills cost $7.34 and a 30-day supply cost me $0? I'm not necessarily complaining because that means my refills won't cost a thing, but it's still rather odd to me.

I'm not into Valentine's Day one iota, but how is it that when a dear friend asked if I'd be his Valentine, I was tickled by it?!

Jealousy and contempt for/of another is a pretty ugly thing, but when it comes from your own sister, that's unconscienable. Worse part, I haven't done jack to deserve it.

I sent a birthday card to one of my cousins for her birthday last month and from her reaction, you'd have thought I sent her a winning lottery ticket. See, folk, it's the simple things. A real card over a txt says a whole lot.

Lil Lady is the funniest kid I've probably ever encountered. She was telling me a story about her dad and another about her dog and I almost threw up in my mouth from laughing so hard. I love that kid!

I thought I'd hate Facebook, but I actually like it and check it almost daily.

I just had my first trip on 2009 and it was great. Nothing like 75-80 degrees when it's 33 back at home. The hotel was absolutely gorgeous and thanks to the hook up from my fave cuz, I got it for a friggin steal. Check out Wyndham Garden Hotel, Boca Raton, FL

I'm looking forward to the day when we, as a community, will stand up for something and stand together.

I think; actually, I know that we need to better educate our children on sex, sexual assault/abuse, and sexual respect. I'm saddened by the amount of young women and some boys who have no idea what the whole sexual thing is really about. So much so that we're leading many of the numbers for sexual abuse/sex crimes/STDs.

Mr. Toolbelt seems to have finally got the message that I don't want anything to do with him.

I'm still torn with Grandy, but seeing him recently did remind me how much I actually have missed him and how much I enjoy his company. I wonder how I'll feel in a few more months and another lengthy absense. *sigh*

An old college friend whom I shared a mutual attraction is digging me again and I really don't know how to handle it. I like him, but am not sure how I want to proceed with it. Damn those conflicted feelings!

I'm not a pill-popper for sport, but after conceding and now being on meds on a daily basis, I actually do feel better and more in control. It pays to be honest with yourself and your doctor.

I think it's funny that when someone has a baby and you get ga-ga over it, they say, "don't you wish you had another one?" Uhm? No! I'm one and done for a reason!!!

Speaking of babies, the newest addition to the family, Jadin; is gorgeous. He's a lighter version of his daddy.

And still speaking of kids, my godson will be 2 next month and the twins (other godchildren) will be 3 in May. Damn, it went fast!

In conclusion of kids, mine will be 17 this year. Now, that went quick! I still easily recall many of her younger days fondly.

I really want to see my fave brother this year. I'm praying that he'll get to come to visit me from London. I want to go home too!

Steve has been behaving badly...again, but I seem to have him in check. Thank goodness for the relief I got. *wink*

I really need some new music for my iPod, but I've been too lazy to research and download some.

I'm worried about a friend of mine and think I will finally ask her about some things. How can I call myself a friend, if I don't express my concern?!

I've been remiss in cooking lately, but I think I'll make up for it this weekend. Yes, you can come if you bring some wine. *smile*

Aiight folk, my lunchbreak is over so I gotta go. Have an amazing and blessed day y'all.

Love to live; live to love!

Keith said...

Hey Blu Jewel, How have you been doing? (Aside from Steve-wink wink)

Sounds like you have options and prospects, which is always nice.

@ Terry - The happiness experience is doing me the world of good.

@ Ruthibelle - I'm trying to make the most out of my life any way I can.

@ Keith - Steve has settled down for now, which is a good thing. Prospects are nice; decisions are much harder. Being honest with myself is not optional and has helped me make some really good choices.

love to live; live to love!

@ T.C - Gotta release the madness and not let oneself get overwhelmed.
