Just One of Those Weeks...



      It's been another crazy week, full of ups and downs and lots of twists and turns.  I'm blessed to have been able to maneuver it all!  Here's what's been going on this week...

'Cause I love my dogs immensely...


     This week, I had time to reflect on how purely lovely and how rich our pets make our lives.  They love you so unconditionally, and half the time they don't ask for more than just a pat on the head and a belly rub (Roman is greedy with the belly rubs, but it's still not too much to give, lol).  I've had pets in the past, but these two are my absolute favorites and hold an extra-special place in my heart.  Both of them have done things that just have me cracking up with joy and have brightened my days beyond measure.  I pray one day that they'll know just how much they mean to us, and I hope that there is not a day that goes by that they don't feel loved and happy to be apart of our family.

 Sometimes I be like...


      We've all had these times... One of the things I hate most in life is being patronized.  Sometimes it just takes so much strength to hold back your true feelings or your true reactions when people try to sugar-coat a situation or use others to do their dirty work.  I think the more this happens, the more you have to re-evaluate your associations, you know?  I'm a believer in tactfully saying what needs to be said and exactly the way you mean it.  If there is any confusion, you can apologize and try to clarify.  People make things far more complicated than need be, and at times, being patronizing is the result of folks who don't have the gall to say what they really want to say... Something to think about...

Are you Team Marissa Jade or Team Brittany????

     Have you been watching Mobwives??? It's totally one of my guilty pleasures.  I've always loved stories about the mob & gangstas.  Even though a lot of that live revolves around crime, there is a huge portion of it that revolves around family values and things I respect like Loyalty, Family, Love, Support, and busting someone's face if they mess with your family (ha ha).  I find myself being torn between who's "side" I'm on, when it comes to these women.  I find Brittany Fogarty a bit childish and petty at times.  But her "mentor" is Drita, who I have a lot of respect.  I think a lot of the crew has been passing off their own issues on Drita and making her the scapegoat for a lot of the things that have gone wrong in the group.  I notice that people like to quickly pass the buck if it means they don't have to really deal with reality.  I want to like Marissa, but she, too comes off a little petty and a lot shallow.  She's gorgeous, and she knows it. Unfortunately, I find that she likes to rely a little more on her "pretty" than to cash the checks her mouth writes.  I like that she's not afraid to confront someone in a civil manner before things go crazy; however, I wouldn't go out of my way to cause trouble or to be a debbie downer (which she tends to do).  What I like about Marissa Jade, though, is that she seems to know exactly who she likes & can peg exactly what it is she's feeling when people are acting funny.  We'll see who gets rocked on upcoming episodes... It's a toss up for me!
