Hey SmF Fam!!! Well the weekend is here. I won’t bog you down with a long rant about a “WrOnG MiStEr” or any other of my issues—the good, bad & the ugly–associated with my “SiNgLeNeSs”.
I just want to make sure you’ve taken my advice and made some “I’m DoInG Me” plans wherever you are in the world. I did! In fact, several of my girlfriends are on our way to VEGAS to celebrate one of their birthdays!!! I’m waiting on the Mercedes Sprinter van as I type. I’m so excited, I don’t know what to do with myself!!!
I certainly need this vacay and the ridiculous fun that will ensue. I’m not sure exactly what’s going to go down, I know there will be some shopping, sunbathing pool side, swimming, experiencing a lil’ of the nightlife, and I will definitely drop a few bills on a table or maybe some coins in a slot machine or two (don’t judge me lol).
I’ve made a promise to refrain from working so that I’ll come back refreshed on Monday. I’ll take plenty of pics to share with you all.
Hey SmF fam!! I had an eventful weekend with fam & friends that involved some great weather, good food and plenty of laughs! That always helps me be more optimistic about my busy week ahead. But I also can’t wait for Friday to get here. It’s going down this weekend ladies! And of course, I’ll tell you all about it next week.
Well, I wish I could take sole credit for today’s post, but I can’t because I read quite a few articles over the past couple of years that fueled some of my thoughts on the subject.
Hey ladies and gentlemen!! If you haven’t already, please check out some of the other SiNgLe MoMmY FiLeS posts in your spare time. And just so you know, I’m still trying to figure this blogging thing out, so please excuse the construction (i.e. schedule & post changes). I just need to make sure that I’m able to find a groove and stick with. I appreciate any or all of your support during this time!
In other news, looks like I’m gearing up for a new post entitled “So YoU WaNt To Be A MoMaGeR” real soon! I’m all about the needs of my readers and a lot of mommies and daddies have reached out to me by way of Facebook asking for info and help on how to get their kid started in the entertainment biz.
Hey Mommies!!! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter holiday weekend! I certainly did! There was plenty of thanksgiving, celebration, family, friends and food! Plus the weather could not have been more beautiful! I love L.A.
As always, I’m glad you’re back visiting SiNgLe MoMmY FiLeS. I’ve had mixed emotions about the blog, obviously I have to be a bit more transparent than I probably have ever been in my life with so many people however, I’m enjoying the responses and feedback and comments, because apparently what I’m sharing is resonating with some and relatable to others.
I would love to get to a point, especially in May, for Mother’s Days month, where I can share some of your WrOnG MiStEr stories (openly or anonymously) or allow one of my SmF’s frequents to feature their own story of “MoMmYhOoD.” There’s a couple of ways you can contact me on the blog or inbox me on Facebook. Just let me know.
There’s always sooo much on my plate as a SiNgLe MoMmY! Remember I told you in “FiRsT StEpS” that I’m a full-time SUPER-mom, which is the ultimate job of the universe. I find myself cooking, cleaning, wiping noses and tears, teaching responsibility, encouraging creativity and learning, cultivating gifts, discouraging bad behavior, chastening, and loving unconditionally, day in and day out.
Parenting is one of thee most demanding responsibilities for a mother and a father, but when a mother finds herself being a stand-in dad too, the load is much heavier. And let me just say that my hat is off to any woman that is raising more than one child alone…I can only imagine what your days are like.
Hey ladies and gentlemen!!! I hope you’re still enjoying SiNgLe MoMmY FiLeS! I appreciate your support whether you’re visiting for the first time or have been supporting since the beginning with “FiRsT StEpS.”
I realized that I had to give myself a quick mental break from all this talk about “LoVe UnCoMpLiCaTeD” and focus on something more significant than my life in all its “SiNgLeNeSs.” At such a vulnerable state (i.e. thee time of the month), it was starting to wear me down hence the post “CaTcH 22.”
Whew!! This weekend was H—E—double hockey sticks for me. First off, it is that dreaded time of the month, which has consisted of some pill-popping (Excedrin that is), for the pain; moping and whining, for the pain; and plenty of high heating pad usage, for the pain. I finally took the time to research whether or not the heat from the pad was frying my precious ovaries. Lucky for me, and everyone else around, it’s recommended.
With the onslaught of debilitating uterus contractions aka CRAMPS!!!, I’ve been tortured with lower back pain, a migraine or two or seven, some bloating, weight gain, a pimple here and there, and a hormonal imbalance where at any given moment, without warning, I’m liable to snap at an innocent victim or break down and cry about everything or nothing at all…it depends. I mean, it’s a reoccurring nightmare, every single month.
