Whew!  Thankfully after some talking with my fiance over the last few days, I think we both killed the latest dead horse that was in our path enough that we could move on and get back on track, but it seems that we both still have a tendency to let little things bug us and pop-up along the way that distract us and cause us to lose focus.

Granted, with a dwindling number of weeks to go until we go off and get hitched it's somewhat normal for some things to pop up and try to make thems...

While my fiancé is able to compute the hours without the use of computing aids, I make use of a Countdown Clock widget that I recently downloaded to show me how much longer there is before our big day.  Still a few months away, but not much more than that now.  So close, yet so far.

We’ve still got a ton of things to do between now and then.  I’ve got a lot more clean-up to get done so that she can move into the house and move her stuff in with her.  I’ve also got to com...

Lots of happenings personally since my last article here.  Nothing that has derailed my (and my fiance's) plans for later this summer though we've certainly hit a few snags and roadblocks to work over in our planning.

The stress of planning things has gotten to both of us and left us both a bit overwhelmed, though as I told her earlier today the worst of the stress really should be behind us at this point.  Most of the stress has related to the guest list and to just how we&...

Dr. Guy had recently inquired how my relationship (discussed in prior articles to a minor degree) was going.  I had a vague reference to same in the last article previous to this one (Making an Appearance) where I said something like this:

The summer looks like it could be a busy one for me and my family and significant others but I'm glad for that.

I'm back to update again, though I've probably given everything away compliments of the article title.

I sent some notices out to frie...

I am so frustrated right now.  I am just so sick of my "blood family".....not all, but most of them.  My step mom has always treated my dad's 4 oldest kids as lower class citizens.  I am just really starting to see some reality that I don't like.  I will start out by saying, my father is a retired minister, so keep that in mind as you read this. 

Recently, my oldest son started asking about being baptized.  We sat down with our pastor, and he feels that he is re...

It has been a very long time since I last used this blog, I had forgotten it.  The sands of time had slipped through my fingers and reading back on the previous posts they reminded me of emotional times. During the 2004/2005 years I went through alot of heartache and change.  6 years later and here I am. I have moved country, I have married and I am settled. The previous posts on here were based around 2 people, they are still lurking in the background of my life and the shad...

I recently fell on hard times.....a few weeks ago I came down with the flu and missed 4 days of work.   Being a single mom, I knew those 4 days were gonna hurt me, and was not sure where the funds were going to come from to get me through, but I prayed about it.  The very next week, I missed 4 more days of work because my son was in the hospital due to a possible asthma attack....they never said for sure.  Again, I knew it was going to hurt financially....again I asked God to...

So you just can’t get the girl and get rid of your virginity. Obviously you are not one of the so called naturals guys who seduce girls without  trying. Your father also haven’t teached you anything about this secret art, probably he is not Casanova himself.  Luckily you are here.

Till this day you have been doing something wrong. Otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this article right now. On the other publications they will give you advice to go to clubs and ...

Growing up, I always saw anger as a bad thing.  It hurt seeing my mother go into rage attacks and everything from everywhere go flying.....only for me and my brothers to clean up.  It hurt when my brothers and I were beat for things we didn't always understand.  It hurt when the anger of one man took the life of my 4 year old brother....it nearly killed me.  It hurt when the anger held onto by another brother caused him to run his bike into a pick up, causing his death.&...
I’ve mentioned before that I’m a creature of the Internet. Some people are “private people”. I’m not. I like sharing stuff with other people because, frankly, I do believe that people are inherently good.

I believe this because I’m a believer of natural selection. People who can’t play well with others have tended not to be as likely to pass on their genes. There are clearly exceptions to that but all in all, most people I interact with fall well into the “good” category.
Even though I rarely touch the JU side of our communities anymore, I still wanted to post a quick note here to share some good news.

This weekend (5/23) I asked my girlfriend, Elisa, to marry me.

She said yes! 

No date set yet, but I know for sure it won't be for another year at the earliest.

Yay!
By now you have all heard what might have happened to Rihanna, I say "might have", because it is still not confirmed that it is her, but everyone has already put two and two together, she has canceled her appearances and went home to Barbados, plus friends of the two have come forward to say there were problems previously and even talked of Chris Brown having a 'dark side'.

I heard (listening to gossip now) that it all started because she found out he was cheating on her, in confronting ...
Ravi Somoiya wrote an article which I read on the NYTimes.com  "It's the Economy, Girlfriend" about women dating men who work on Wall Streets, in various Banks and/or who were some type of Power Broker.  Now these women are face with coping with their boyfriends or spouses who have had to give up some of their special, and expensive past times.  Not to mention that the women themselves are no longer able to go shopping at will or have the 'help' they need just because they can. Th...
I recently watched a video online about a man who wants the kidney he donated to his wife returned as part of the divorce settlement-- or she can pay him 1.5 million dollars.

You can read about the story at this link or this one or watch it here (more from his point of view) or here.

Evidently there was a major breakdown in this relationship.  According to the first video, she cheated and refused to let him see his children.  I don't agree with her actions, but I don't ...

I just wanted to lose myself in you, and I did. You became my life my world and simply put my all. In my mind I could not even think of myself anymore without you in my life. In finding you I lost myself.  I never understood why this is something you could not do. When everything I do revolves around you, you seem to have a world where I don’t even exist.

 It took me some time to realize that I was the one who was wrong. They say that we should not just live for ourselves, bu...
