Wordless Wednesday: Defense

image

(My daughter top left & bottom left) My daughter has began conditioning training and let’s just say, “another level!” Every morning I txt her with….take your medicine, don’t forget your medicine or did you take your medicine? On the phone the other day she broke down her day to day routine and said, “I don’t have time to do anything.” My reply was, “Good!”

Wordful Wednesday: They had the nerve to rush me!

image

This pic makes me smile and makes me look short. What’s up with that? Oh, and yes I have on white socks :-/ I brought the cute footies to wear with these shoes so they won’t show, but after walking in these shoes all Saturday and being lead on a wild goose chase trying to find the Apple Store :-/ my feet were in pain!!!! So by putting on the white socks, I was hoping they added a little more comfort. NOT!

image

Was I happy to finally see the big apple? No! My feet were hurting and after flagging down a cab…. Here’s the story…. My husband wanted to go to the Apple Store to get a charger for his iPad. That didn’t bother me so much, but after following my daughter’s GPS on her phone, it seemed like we had been walking forever. My logic, why go somewhere we can go in Chicago? Not to mention, after getting the charger, he continued to use mine and didn’t open his until we got home :-/ As we’re walking I’m wondering when will they realize how far we’ve walked. After getting in the cab and going in the opposite direction….for nearly as long as we walked proved my point. So, we finally were able to get back to Time Square and you know my husband and daughter had the nerve to rush me out of the M&M store? I’m looking for some things for my other kids and they’re running up behind me saying, “what about this? How about this? Here’s a yo-yo!” I’m thinking….you wanna play huh? So, I made sure I went to every floor :-] Don’t play with me…..

WTFlashback: “Salt N Pepa. Push It”


You remember that song, that you would rewind over and over, know the lyrics and could perform every dance step from the videos choreography? Well, this was one of mine. Just one of them. If my mind serves me correct I was in my freshman year of highschool when this song came out. Although this was one of my faves….I didn’t get my hair shaved on one side or dye it blonde. Coloring my hair with peroxide & Koolaid doesn’t count. Do you remember any of your favorite songs from your freshman year of highschool?

I cried today…..

image

and yesterday
and last week
and the week before that
and that day I was left in the hotel room while she hung out with her new college team mates.

10 days and counting
before I cry again or sooner (like right now) well, actually 10 days before I lament, ball and cry some more all while trying to keep it together.

My daughter leaves in 10 days to begin  summer school at her new school and Mamas’ gonna need a support group,tissue and all that I can muster up to avoid looking as if I’m at a funeral.

As I dwell in my pity party….I promise to remove anyyyyyyBODY!!!! And everrrrBODY that attempts to crash it! 🙁

What’s been up, The Hawk, Priorities, Jewelry, iPad vs Tablet and I cut my hair.

image

Warning: any spelling or grammerical errors…..over look them 🙂

It’s cold here in Chicago and I only leave the house if necessary.  Thought it was time for me to post this week.  If you’ve noticed I haven’t been posting as frequently on here as usual and  I have good cause.  The reason I started this blog in 2009 was because I was in the process of having another site trademarked.  I thought it would be a good idea to join the online blog community to see what was up.  Since this sit was done first, because I was able to do it myself and in the meantime I was wasting my money…..I mean paying a designer to complete my other site. Help Mama Remote became priority. 

That was not part of the plan.  After my other site went through all the challenges of trying to build off of what I thought was a wonderful idea and dream, I had to re-evaluate the concept. The site platform sucked and it was a pain in the rear.  I finally got around to counting my lost and switching it over to WordPress. Along with many other changes that needed to be made. 

At the end of last year while writing my goals I had to refocus and get my priorities straight.  Although I’m not posting here as often as usual and once I get a hold of things hopefully it’ll be a bit more frequently.  It feels good to be back on the right track and excited again.

I’ve also began designing and making handcrafted jewelry.  Those that know me well know that I’ve been a lover of jewelry for many years. Be able to design and create pieces myself has really been therapy for my creative side.

Not to mention I still have my clientele that I service weekly. The kids practices, games and all the family stuff that’s priority over everthing. 

Oh, my hubby surprised me with an iPad for Christmas. It’s cool, but I see it as more of a hype than anything else. Just call it a giant mobile phone that you can’t talk on.  Whenever I would here people talk about it, they make it seem as if it’s a must have, can’t live without, the bloggers arsenal etc. My opinion…..not, not, not and not!  When I have to get up to get my laptop because the functionality is limited……not!

My husband has the tablet and I’ve compared the two and there’s some limitation there as well. However, it has a place for your SD card and USB.  He says the tablet is built for a man, tough and durable. He wanted to trade with me when we first got them now he looks at me and laugh when I ask him to trade with me. 🙁

Lastly, I cut my hair off again. Whew!!!! I feel so free!!!! I had began to let it grow out last year and it was fun while it lasted. I’m not high maintenance by any means and I need to be able to shampoo and go. I colored it a brownish red and I do believe that will be the last time I let it grow out again. I’m realizing this post could have been split up to 5 different post. Bwahaha! Maybe that’s what I’ll do.  Do more of tidbits so that I won’t be missing in action.
