Last Sunday my dad called all his kids ((4)) and told us that he wanted to take us out to dinner. Afterwards we planned to go see Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Family Funeral. But baaaaaaaaby after we sat ate, drank, laughed and talked, we were all ready for BED! LOL As bad as I wanted to see his movie opening weekend I was sleepy and tired.

Sorry Tyler. (( smile)) Image result for sorry look

My momma was the only one at the table who wanted to see it THAT DAY..RIGHT NOW. I live around the corner from her anyway, so I told her that one day through the week when I don’t have to work I will pick her up and we’ll go. Even though she wanted to go right then and there, she was Okay with the plans we made.

Wednesday morning. My phone rang it was my momma, I looked at the phone and said to myself I’ll call her back when I wake up. Later on that night, I called her back and her voice was sounding funny (( I’m cracking up as I type this)) I said hey momma what you doing? She was like…… I CALLED YOU EARLIER. I said I know, I was sleep. She was like….your phone was off. I said I never turn my phone off. She was like…. well I called you and it went to voicemail. So now by hearing her voice, I’m trying to figure out what she’s getting at. My momma is never like this, so it was kinda shocking  to me. I couldn’t figure out why she was talking “rough”. She finally came out and said… “We were suppose to go see Tyla (( LOL)) Perry.” I think you left me, went by yourself and turned off your phone. I said momma I would never do you like that. She said I know you, you’ll go off to the movies by yourself in the mornings. I said but momma, we made plans to go together. I said I will never leave you. I told her that my boss called me and asked me would I work on my day off and I told him yes. She was like OOOH. OKAY (( LOL)). I told her that since I was off the weekend we would go Saturday. She was happy.

Later on my Sister sent me a Marco Polo laughing asking me did I leave momma. I replied back and said she must have called you. She said yes, her lil feelings were hurt cause she thought you left her. She said you know you are her favorite. We laughed.

Saturday afternoon. Me, mom, my daughter and Sister went to the movies. MY MOMMA laughed her lil tailed off. She LOVED the movie. She really enjoyed it. She said Joe reminds her of my daddy. My baby was Heathrow. He may not of had any legs, but he can make me laugh the rest of my life. LOL

One scene made me crack up, when Heathrow didn’t have that thing up to his neck and was talking without it, it didn’t hit me that there was no sound coming out of his mouth. And when I realized it, I let out this laugh that had the whole audience laughing. LOL  LOL LOL  Mess me up! That caught me off guard. Tyler is crazy, how the hell do he live HIS OWN LIFE, with all these characters in his head? Brian, Joe off the hook butt, Heathrow, and Madea. As I’m watching the movie, I kept imaging me making a small incision on Tyler’s forehead and looking around in his head at what goes on in there. LOL LOL LOL I really wish I could take a look. He’s so SILLY!

I was mad when they closed the door on my baby Heathrow and made him drop his cake.                              How he’s driving…… I DUNNO LOL LOL LOL

I really hate to see Madea go. But I understand that he’s tired of playing her. I remember when my niece introduced me and my  daughter to (( Madea)) Madea’s Family Reunion THE PLAY. One day she came to spend the weekend with us and bought over the bootleg DVD. My daughter was 12 now she’s 32. She tried to get me to watch it with them and I hated stage plays because of the “all of a sudden burst out and singing.” I didn’t watch it. So when it went off, they played it again and laughed like IT DIDN’T JUST GO OFF. I remember staring at them so hard listening to them laugh loud  like they had never seen it before. My daughter kept saying “momma you will love this man he is so funny.” Momma please watch it!

So that night when they were in bed, I was like let me watch this play. I LOVED IT!!! I LOVED IT! I LOVED IT! I had never seen anything like it. The messages, the singing, the humor. I remember asking myself when they came out to be introduced, where is the LADY? I had to figure out that Tyler Perry was Madea. Keep in mind, I had never in my life heard of him. This was in 2001.

I’m going to miss Madea, but I also look forward to see what Tyler has next for us.

Sail On My Friend/BLOG

Hey Family!

I know its been a while since I’ve written anything here. But I lost my MALE BEST FRIEND to a trucking accident. He was a local truck driver. He’s been since I met him over 22 years ago. He loved to drive state to state for 2-3 weeks at a time, but since he started having grand children he wanted to be home more to spend time with them, so he changed his shift to locally.

January 10, 2019, My sister called me. I was taking a nap. I saw that it was her and answered the phone. She asked me if I had seen anything on FB about my BFF Rodney dying in a trucking accident. I sat straight up in bed as my heart started beating fast, I told her No. She told me to get on line, and go to our brother ex wife page. It read RIP Rodney Adams, and I was SHOCKED!!! I was mad at her for posting it, I wanted her to take it down. I was in denial and didn’t want to believe it. I asked her where did she hear that from? She told me from someone she knew. So, I went to his mom’s page, his daughter, sons, BFF, his siblings and NOTHING. No one had said a word. I couldn’t cry because I didn’t believe it. Not MY BEST FRIEND!

As the night went on I was glued to all of their FB pages and finally his sister posted. I was devastated. I knew it was true then. Still I couldn’t cry because I had just spoken with him less than 2 weeks before. We worked different shifts and when we talked over the phone.. WE TALKED!!!!!. He always made me laugh with his stories. I use to call him just so that he could make me laugh.

I can’t believe that I wont see my friend anymore. His BFF Mike for over 45 years was calling him to say that his MOTHER had passed away, just to find out the HE (((Rodney)))  had too on the SAME DAY.

There was a HUMAN WASTE spill on I-75 that was backed up for miles and miles and miles. After “cleaning up” the right lane only ((( they were STILL cleaning up the other lanes))) they had to open it up to release the traffic. Well…. all of the waste along that right lane wasn’t completely gotten up. A trailer truck carrying a camper slid in the right lane on the waste  leaving part of the camper hanging out of the right lane. He got over as much as he could from on coming traffic. Then Rodney comes along driving his truck, SLID in the waste as well and slammed right into the back of the man and his trailer. The driver was okay had a few injuries. The family said the first responders prayed with Rodney as he was pinned to his truck. He was in and out, after the prayer they told the family that he complained of his legs hurting. As soon as the jaws of life pulled him out, he died INSTANTLY.

The days after as it sunk in, I have crying spells daily. Even to this day. I think about him calling me all the time as he drove.

His family put him away beautifully.  I miss my silly friend. He loved people, and LOVED HIS FAMILY. They said that so many times at his service, how he loved his Facetime LIVES, his family, especially his grandkids, family barbecues, Prince and his Superfriends. They are made up about 7-8 friends who went to high school together.

One thing I am grateful for…. his relationship with God. He LOVED GOD. They had the best relationship I can say this myself. I can’t wait to see him again.

Here is a song that his sister and her husband sung at his service. It happens to be one of my favorite songs from a CD I purchased years and years ago.

Rest Rodney. I love you.

Happy New Year! BLOG

Happy New Year!!! Yea its been a while. I’m always excited about a New Year coming in, it brings new expectations. I’m looking forward to doing new things, and some old things that I enjoyed doing. Every New Year I like to reflect on things that I learned in the following year. Here are a few.

  • I learned that no matter how great of a job you do in ANYTHING, there is always someone in the background thinking other wise. Know your worth, and know that you are doing YOUR best.
  • Sometimes you have to just listen. You don’t have to always voice your opinion.
  • Allow people to make mistakes, especially when there was a time you did the same things. Have patience with those people, and know that your experience in the past is why you are the best person to pull them up and to pull them through.
  •  I need to be more thoughtful.
  • I’m always supportive of others, but I need to focus on MY goals at the same time.

Gerald Levert/BLOG

November 10, 2006. I’ll never forget. RIP

Even though I love Beyonce, Micheal Jackson and Prince. There are only 3 Celebrities that I asked God to let me meet, and they are Anita Baker, Gerald Levert, and Tyler Perry. I met them all except Tyler Perry.

I was at work when I found out that Gerald Levert had passed away. My co-workers took me to the bathroom and told me what happened. I was devastated. I couldn’t believe it. When I got home, I had so many messages on my phone. Still to this day, I cry.

Its amazing how I got the chance to meet him. I was working at Walmart and this lady came through my line with his face on her shirt. I said to her, “what are you doing with my man on your shirt?” We laughed and became friends. There was a contest on the radio to win tickets to a Meet & Greet Listening Party for a New CD, with 50 people. It was very private with a very nice dinner. She told me that she was going home to try to win tickets for us. I told her that I would call her as soon as I got off work to help her. When I got home she called me and we tried, and tried, to win. She got through, and when she called me back to tell me, I didn’t believe her. I wanted to go so badly, seem as if she was tricking me.  She screamed for me to turn on the radio to hear her win, we were so happy, we laughed and laughed.

I NEVER SHARED ((( drinking))) WITH ANYONE

The day of the PRIVATE meet and greet we were ready. We got there and right off we were having a good time with his body guard Joe, while Gerald take photos. I’m not a drinker, but when he offered to buy drinks for us, I figured I would drink.

After the party Gerald, his body guard Joe,  my friend Pat and I, plus a few others that we didn’t know, went to the lobby’s bar to have more drinks and to talk and laugh. There Joe, bought us more drinks. When I drink, my eyes become glossy, and I just sit and become quiet. I remember being so high that I sat in the corner. I couldn’t bring myself to socialize. My whole mood had changed. Thing is, that is not even my personality. I can talk to 4 ducks and laugh all night. Had I been in my right mind, I would have been mingling more. But I was out of my mind high from drinking and to this day, I HATE that. But I can’t take it back.

As the night was coming to an end, the 4 of us got a chance to stand around talking and laughing. Gerald was so sweet, so pleasant, and loved to run his hands through my hair. Me and Pat was the last to leave, so we walked them to the elevator because they were staying in that hotel. Never knowing that was going to be my last time seeing him alive. He passed that next year.

It took me a while to forgive myself for not taking the opportunity to enjoy the moment (((( sober))) to enjoy the PRIVATE company of Gerald. I was so high and I felt that God knew he was going to pass soon, and that was my blessing to meet him. Had I been in my right mind, I would have had so many more memories. It took me almost 10 MORE YEARS to take a drink PERIOD! I was done with drinking, and I will never get that drunk again. God made happen what I asked him, but it was me who blew it. I’m over it now, but it has made me look at things differently and its okay. I got to take plenty of photos with him, Joe and Pat.

Thank you Jesus for answering my prayer.

Gerald I will always remember and Love you. Rest

My Vent!

Image result for VENTING

Hey Family!

Wow what a month!!! So, I guess this will be my “vent” blog. I know I can’t be the only one going through something like what I’m about to write about. Sometimes I dunno how to feel about how I feel. Or even if I’m “right” about feeling the way I feel.

I’ve always been the kind of person who attract a lot of people. I think its because of my easy to get along personality. I don’t like drama, I’m honest and will be truthful with you, I’m everyone’s therapist, and I’ve always enjoyed good stories and real life lessons from different people.

Sometimes I feel people want too much from me. Since I turned 32 ((( now 51))) I have really, really, chilled from having company over. In my 20’s I had my good friends over and cousins and we would have a ball. I’m still close to EVERYONE of them, and they seem to know me well. I enjoy cooking collard greens, fried chicken, corn bread, corn on the cob and I would invite friends and family over and this would become a daily for me no matter what I’m cooking. I’m not that person today anymore because people have burnt me OUT! They expect for dinner to be made for them every day!!! Never bringing anything, always expecting. No company, NO DINNERS! DONE with that life forever!

I’m done raising my daughter, my only child. Most people I know, are still raising kids. My problem is, they seem to feel that just because I’m live alone that I have all day to talk to them over the phone, go places with them. I ENJOY having a empty nest. I can do whatever I want! These are the same people who cant wait for their kids to be grown and gone, so they can be alone, but seem to think I want to be bothered all the time. I enjoy my quiet time. I can cook whenever I want, eat what I want. Sleep all day, and jump in my car and go anywhere I want. I am far from lonely when all people want to do is call my phone, hop in my car, and sit on my couch while I listen to their stories all dayum day. I’m good! Done with that life forever!

I’m a Virgo, if you know anything about us, you know we love to be alone and do our own thing. We don’t need company, we dont need friends, we LOVE to be alone. YEs, we enjoy family and friends, and we often link up. But don’t make it seem as if I need company just because my house is empty, and STOP FEELING OFFENDED WHEN I TELL YOU IM GOING ALONE! Like tomorrow, I’m going to the movies in the morning ALONE, now if I mention it to anyone on any day, first thing out of their mouths is, “why didn’t you ask me to go with you”? As if I’m lonely, or ESPECIALLY acting funny and didn’t want to invite anyone. I’m grown, my daughter is gone and I can get in MYYYYYYYYYYY car and go anywhere I want to go. I don’t need company to go with me, and I shouldn’t have to feel that I’m “acting funny” for not inviting anyone. It pisses me off so bad. So now, I don’t tell anyone where I’m going, I just go. Now! They say, you don’t go anywhere…. NO THAT’S NOT IT, ITS THAT YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT IT, BECAUSE YOU WOULD WANT TO GO WITH ME! **rolls eyes**

If I’m having a conversation about what we made for dinner, and I’ll say. I made collard greens, fried chicken, corn bread and corn on the cob, they would say…… ” Why didn’t you bring me some’? It would be in a tone where they feel that just because its MEEEEEEEEEEEEEE and me alone eating dinner, that I made enough for them and who ever else. No! I made dinner for me to eat for 2 days. I don’t make dinner for 7 people just “in case” someone ask for a plate. Now, here is my thing. The good person in me what to cook dinner for others like I use too. But then people started depending on me. They wanted me to do it every week, or every time I made dinner. They would ask me what did you cook today? After a while, I was like wait, the very thing I enjoy doing for others, has turned into a burden for me. They expect for me to cook food daily, and when I would say I didn’t cook yesterday they were disappointed and made me feel some kinda way. So, I had to stop that altogether. DONE!

I love to drive and have no problem jumping in my car and going where I need and want to go. I have a friend who always get into debates with her sisters about whose going to drive where. Now me on the other hand LOVE to drive. I will again, jump in my car and go. But when I’m with this friend she always wants me to drive. It makes me mad because just because I enjoy driving doesn’t mean I want to drive because SHE wants and need to go somewhere. So, I stop dealing with her when it comes to going anywhere. You either want to go or NO!  But as for meeeeeeee, I have the get up and go when it comes to me going where I want to go. I dont like that back and forth, I drove last time, its your turn. NOOOOOOOO, I’m going to drive my own car to the same place and you drive yours. I hate pettiness~!

Now, again, I’m going to the movies tomorrow, If I ask people who want to go, but didn’t go, their answer would be, because the drive is too far. Yes, its a 35 minute drive, but I love to drive, but if that’s the reason why you didn’t go, then you really wont be riding with me EVER! Here is why. When people see that you love to drive and is willing go whenever, they expect for you to always call them to invite them. These people will NEVER drive to see a movie because they dont feel like driving. I love to go alone, so I’ll never be asking anyone again unless its my mommy and daughter. Or I’m in a group setting.

I’m learning a lot about people and myself. I laugh sometimes, and sometimes I shake my head.
