Tuesday, November 1, 2011 (There will be days like this . . . why?)

Mind you, the plan was to fly back to Indianapolis, go to the BMV/DMV to get my Indiana tag, head into work for the afternoon, and go home.  The dead battery on the car had other ideas. Now, I can’t say that I slept Monday night.  Tanisha came by to say “Fare thee well!” with … Continue reading

Saturday, October 29th (Christinia and Trevor’s Wedding . . . ROTFL still!)

On Saturday, my eyes opened before 7 a.m.  Little did I know that the day was going to be full of hilarious-crack-your-rib-and-cry-laughing moments.  As Caisey, my neice, roomed with me, we headed down to breakfast after showering and met up with my brother-in-law Charles and my nephew, Michael.  I received the SOS text from Christinia … Continue reading

Friday, October 28th (Exams & Wedding Preparation)

Getting up after the first night of sleep deprivation was easy especially when I smelled the bacon, sausage, eggs, grits, and biscuits that Mom was making in the kitchen.  The aroma made it’s way from the 1st to the 2nd floor, under the door and into my nostrils. As I had a baseline mammogram at … Continue reading

Thursday, October 27th (The Bachelorette party & road trip)

My eyes were burning, but my body wasn’t sore the morning of Friday, October 28th.  We had Christinia’s bachelorette shindig Thursday night.  The fun started at Pizza Gallery for dinner for everyone.  Mom, Christinia, Lise, Teresa, Nandra, Kim, Tanisha, and I were there chatting it up while dining on a variety of food.  Then, the … Continue reading

Then, there was the “Running of the Tourists”

Typically, when we’ve gone to the Epcot Food and Wine Festival, we’ve stayed at a hotel on property where we only needed to catch a shuttle or ferry to and from Epcot from where we were staying.  This year, we stayed off property and drove directly to Epcot and parked. We’re used to the “Running … Continue reading

The Epcot Food and Wine Festival

A guest relations employee referred to the Party of the Senses as “The Running of the Tables.”. She did not lie. We’ve been going to the Party of the Senses at Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival since 2003. It is a marvelous delight of food from top chefs around the United States and the world, … Continue reading

All I want is a duplicate title from the Florida DMV . . .

Num yo reng gay quo . . . . yes like Tina Turner in “What’s Love Got to Do With It,” I’m trying to soothe the wild beast inside.  I purchased my 2001 Honda Civic in 2000 and paid the car off in 2004. Why when I went to the DMV to get a duplicate … Continue reading

I was set-up!

Little did I know that my personal trainer Judy was going to play match maker on the stairs when I went to visit her in the gym last night. There I was talking to Judy about working out at the gym this past Tuesday.  There is one of the full time personal trainers who literally … Continue reading

I love my friends & family!!!

I have to say that I have excellent friends and a wonderful family. With one wedding down, several lunches & dinners, meet and greets, dancing, etc. etc. I’m giving each of you your flowers, love, and warm thoughts while you and I are both here. This month has been simply amazing. Everyday I’m reminded that … Continue reading

Such is my life . . . crazy but fun!

I flew into Florida on Wednesday evening for 2 weddings (Erin’s and my younger sister Christinia), the Party of the Senses at the Epcot Food & Wine Festival, Nandra’s 40th birthday, doctor appointments, etc. etc. etc.  The flight out was fun.  In order to ensure that I, my three pieces of luggage, and my large … Continue reading
