Random Thoughts

A doctor here in New York wants his soon to be ex wife to give back the kidney he gave her in 2002. If he can't get the kidney, he wants 1.5 million dollars. He has to be the ultimate indian giver.

2009 is going to be a good year. I can feel it.

I took a break from blogging and no one noticed. That's part of the reason I took a break from blogging. I needed to take a step back and come back with a new attitude. I needed to remember that I started this blog because I love to write. If only one person reads it, at least i've shared my passion with someone. Quality is way more important than quantity.

Where's Don?

It's so easy to give up when things don't work out the way you expected. I'm easily disappointed and that's something i'm trying to change in the new year. Life is what you make it and I think my pessimistic outlook was making things harder for me.

This is going to be a great football weekend. My picks are Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Carolina and, of course The New York Giants.

We're getting snow this weekend and it's ruining my plans.

On January 13th I will be married 20 years. My husband and I have gone through some things since we've been together. Marriage is not easy, it's hard work. Looking back through the years I can honestly say every down was worth the up. We've had a lot of good times and share so many wonderful memories. I wouldn't change a thing.

I was watching The First 48 the other night and a man killed six people, including his brother, niece and nephew. He shot four adults and stabbed four children. Two of the children lived and one of them was able to tell the police that his uncle was the one who stabbed him in the chest. Crazy! I know I should stop watching this show, but I can't.

My son just finished his first semester of college and I think i'm more excited about it than he is. I'm so proud of him. I see good things in his future.

2009 is going to be one of the best years I have ever had. I am determined to make this statement a reality. I am claiming my success!

Hey Tammy, Happy New Years and welcome back. This will be me and my wife's 20th year of marriage too.You all got married a little before we did. We got hitched on June 3rd...I guess you guys wanted to start the New Year off right huh-lololol..???

I love the First 48...I need to stop watching too, but I'm hooked.
On Saturday Mornings, I sometime watch a marathon of them on "On Demand"

It's going to be a great year..We have to speak positivity into our lives.

I'm sorry I didn't list you as one of my favorite bloggers who returned in my last post, but I wrote it before I knew you had put up a post. I definitely missed you too.

Keith - Happy new year to you too. I wasn't in the best mood when I posted. LOL! I think that's why I posted the comment about no one noticing I was gone. I'm good. LOL! I'm definitely feeling great about this year. Like you said, we have to speak positivity into our lives.

Sunflower - Thanks for stopping by. I hope to see you more often. I look forward to reading your blog when you get it started.

I think we all took an end of the year break.

You were missed but unfortunately in the face paced life we have it may not have "felt" like it. I envy the 20 year marriage. I wanted that. I pray that you guys aren't working and have a day filled with love and look back on what attracted you to one another.

You will be surprised what one post will do for someone's soul. So don't give up, take a break from time to time; but don't give up. Who else is going to tell us what's happening in the BIG Apple?

Big Ups to your son and his parents.Big Ups to your editing process.Big Ups to your 2009 Resolutions and Big Ups to a Strong Black Woman! (smile)

Love, peace and blessings!

PS I don't know where Don is but I'm praying for him!
