Thursday's Randoms

Today is a good day.

I have things to say I just don't feel like saying them.

Some of you have asked why I didn't like For Colored Girls. Because it was too depressing. Where is the triumph? Where is the joy? Sheesh. I needed a drink after watching that flick. Yeah, sometimes life is hard. Sometimes life is really hard ... I think at the core I was seeing women that look like me (i.e. Black women) looking so beat down and down trodden with no hope and that pisses me off.

I can't wait to hit the gym today. I enjoyed a huge slice of chocolate, peanut butter cheesecake yesterday ... and I really, really need to get to the gym in repentance.

I'm growing my hair out and I'll probably color it darker again.

I plan to do a vlog this weekend.

My Jonah study is coming to a close and I'm so grateful that I went through it. I'm looking forward to my next study which is called, He Speaks to Me: Preparing to Hear From God, by Priscilla Shirer. Looks like good stuff.

Being the mother to a teenaged girl is nothing like they show on television. Except for maybe Roseanne. That was pretty accurate.

I'm getting a facial this weekend and I'm going to talk to my aesthetician about switching to a tinted moisturizer. I've been using Bare Minerals foundation and I really like how light it is but I need a little more coverage but I don't want the heavy feel of a regular foundation.

Goodbye February.

I think my daughter and I will visit a couple of college campuses during Spring Break. She attended a college fair last weekend and now she's all excited about higher education. She always wanted to go to college but now she's actually excited about it. Better late than never.

She's also excited about the upcoming ring dance. When I was her age it was called the junior prom. Whatever. We already bought the dress and the jewlery. Next comes the shoes, purse, hair and transportation. She needs a job.

I'm praying that the remainder of my fourth decade will be pretty uneventful.

I'm looking forward to my fiftieth birthday.

... and an empty house.

About your might try a different brush. I had the same issue and found out that the kabuki brush gives you a heaver coverage than say...a multipurpose brush. And it's a noticeable difference too.

Teenage daughter! LOL. Yeah, I have been there. Whew! I needed drinks from 2003 to now. LOL. She will be 21 this year.

At my school, we had a ring dance AND a prom. I can't even imagine how much that stuff will add up to with my kids. My daughter is in kg and she is sort of picky already. Sigh.

Folks say the hardest job in the world is being a mother but I'd say being the parent of a teenager trumps that! LOL
