What a Sunday?

My Sunday started out with me waking up at 8AM, I normally wake up or I set my clock to 7AM, but it didn't happen this morning, but that was ok, everyone was still asleep (thank God) I have to get up early, before everyone so I can spend time alone with God.

I say my prayers, I read 4 verses in my bible, sometimes I write in my journal or I'm writing a Dear God letter. I'm also reading The Purpose Driven book which is very good, sometimes I don't get a chance to do the journal writing because my children wake up.

I iron my clothes and my children clothes for church, they ate breakfast and we were out the door. I didn't eat because I'm on a week fast, from 6am-6pm, I might stretch it, I really don't no, but looking at my situation, I need to fast for 6months...LOL

Church service was over at 2:15pm, which ran over 1 hour and 15mins, which was fine with me, because I love my Paster and I love being in church.

I'm still working on my husband going, but he says he's not ready,ummm ok, I'm just going to keep praying for him and I'm guessing one day he will show up. My mother also, she makes so many excuses not to attend church, either she didn't have nothing to wear or don't feel good and when she throws that one in, I come home from church and she be up cussing people out.

I'm not making excuses, I'm going and my children are going also, I been slacking on my teen, he haven't been either, but I told him today, you going next Sunday, rather you like it or not.

I got home from church and I cooked, I fried some good ole chicken, I made green beans, and some garlic & herb potatoes. There were some lefted over biscuits from breakfast this morning and I heated them up and served them as well.

My husband full and so are my children and I must say...I am also!
You know what happens when we get full, you got it!

We get sleepy, but I didn't fall asleep, I cleaned my bedroom, put on some good ole clean sheets for my bed as well as my children, helped my 3rd grader with some home-work and I listen to him read.

At last..I got them ready for their bath, we added bubble bath and tons of toys!
I allowed then to find the under wear of their choice and also their pajamas and they was all set, now in my head they should be sleepy.....NOT!

It was 8:15pm when they got out of the bath tub and they asked or begged me to let them stay up for a little while longer, so I allowed them to stay up until 9pm, in which it's around that time now as I type this and guess what...

My 4yr old is sitting in the same chair with me, he always likes to sit wherever I'm sitting, mama spoil
And he fail asleep, he don't like to fall asleep alone, he always has to be by his mama. My 8yr old don't care, he's mama big baby, he don't need me to fall asleep, because he knows he's to big anyway and this little one (the 4yr old) just don't know he is about to start being a big boy also.

That's something I have to break him from, he's getting a older and he's old enough to be able to sleep without me near him.

I'm restless now and seeking some peaceful time, I'm on my way to take a hot and relaxing bubble bath myself, so I will talk 2 ya later!

Until next time,
Peace, Love, & Happiness!

I really got nothing...

But thoughts.....

It's starting to get cold here in Chicago, we been waking up to 34 degree weather, that sucks!!!!
I Love this Black sitcom called Lincoln Heights, it's a very nice show, I truly love it, I believe it's aired on The Family channel with Comcast, I ask that you please support the show. I seen some of the cast members on The Monique Show last week and the young lady tells Monique that she was the first to ever interview them about the show, that's a shame, being that the show is going on it's 5th season.
It's been a lot of killing going on in Chicago, a couple in my neighborhood, it's starting to scare my oldest son and sister, I never thought I would hear them say....What is going on in Chicago?
It's been close, like this young fella, that liked my sister, we called him LiL Wayne, because he looked just like him, he enjoyed my sister, she never liked him, but they were friends and about 2 weeks ago, someone came up to him and shot him in the face twice and killed him. That was scary to her, she said she was talking to him earlier that day on her way going to work.
My step daughter, I love her to life, her and her husband gave us a car, it was very nice of them, it's a old car, it's a 1992 Pontiac and it's blue, with a nice radio, it needs some minor work, which my husband could do:-) I'm very grateful, because we did not have a car, funny thing, I asked my husband, I said...Do you think we can drive this car to Atlanta? and he said......NOPE!
(Laugh out loud), so we're either going to have to get it fixed or eight trade it for another car, in which I'm down with trading it, when I get my taxes. It needs some plugs or something, I don't know mechanic talk, he understands what it needs, I'm simply clueless.
I love that my 4yr old is sitting here eating up all the strawberries, I was making strawberry short cake for them:-)
My mother decided, that she wants to relocate with me next year, I don't know about her, I don't think she even know, she changes her mind all the time, I will see!
How about The Monique Show? Tell me what yall think about that, I like it myself, I will keep supporting the show, but it's just one thing....She has to stop doing all that damn yelling!
There's a program here in Chicago, that will give you up to $5,000 for school and at the same time, they will help you find a job, I signed up for it! They have a variety of classes, you can take and I was thinking about doing something in the medical business, they asked us to research the job market to see what job is high in demand, at this point in time. They purpose is to help people find a job and place them into a job in the career field that they choose. So we need to choose a job that is in demand, I can understand that, because that's what I want and that's what the others want as well.
The holidays are quickly arriving. Are you doing any early shopping?
I want to start early,but just like last Christmas, the presents were light and it's going to be light this year. My children only!!!

Ok, I can't think of anything else at the moment to talk about, so I'm signing off!

Until Next Time,

Peace & Blessings!

My Oldest...

Son has an job interview at Sears today!!!!!! I'm so excited for him, he's excited as well!

They called him around 10AM and gave him a interview time for 4PM today, he was ready by 12noon....LOL

I gave him a practice interview, he had on the correct interview clothing, around 4PM we lefted the house, I borrowed my grandmother van and we were on our way!

Before, he got on the elevator to meet the interviewer, I had to look him over again and he had on earrings , similar to the ones he have on in this picture and I told him to take them off.

Let me tell yall, his interviewer was a woman, my son went into the human resource office and he had 2 people before him and the lady had to have them in her office for about 2mins each.

My 4yr old I were glancing around the store, we were in the little boys department and I was working my way to the lingerie department and here comes my son, I looked at him and he said...She only asked me 3 questions it was...

1. How much do you expect to get paid?

2. How many hours do you expect to work?

3.Why do you want to work for Sears?

And that was it, I'm like, shit this woman is going to give me some damn gas money, she could have asked this shit over the phone...LOL

But, that's what I was thinking to myself, but she did tell my son, that they would get back with him next week.

I was also thinking, Why my interviews never go that fast?

Pray for my child, he really wants a job and his mother (me) really wants him to have one as well:-)

I'mma get back with yall later and I'mma let you peeps know if my son got the job.

Until Next Time,
Live life to the fullest!
