Back to School…

So this year not only will my crew be going back to school, but I will be joining them. My daughter will be in her senior year and taking some college credit course so when she does graduate she can have a dual graduation. My son will be going to 1 grade!!! First year fully potty trained!!! And last but certainly not least, I will be going for my associates degree. Now I have a few credits under my belt, pre pregnancy with my daughter.

My job is offering one class at work, one will be on the college campus. I can take more courses as well.

Hopefully we can all put thru this year with flying colors.

Valentine’s Day

I debated back and forth about posting this to my social media accounts. Why you ask? Because once people know who your dating everyone wants to say he used to date so and so. Or she used to date so and so. It doesn’t bother me much, but I like to bask in just being happy. People see us together so there is no need to gain acceptance via a social media outlet. Somethings are better when you in it. You know?

Anyways, I’m glad I met this man last year. It’s been a year and he still makes me laugh, smile and make me feel beautiful even on my fat days. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ The best part is we make each happy. He test my thought process and challenges me to think outside of the box. As do I, for him.

Happy Valentine’s Day babe!!!

Monday Blues

Maybe I need to rethink drinking so much in the middle of the night knowing I have to be to work! But it’s his fault:

Well not his fault, I blame Game of Thrones and my excitment for drinking to much. Needless to said it had me at work burnt out (maybe still drunk). My stomach talking to me in a languages I can’t comprehend. Food doesn’t taste like anything. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Don’t laugh too hard me. I’m just tryna get my life in order and make it another house and go home to my bed. I can’t today, maybe tomorrow. I need to make better life choices.

Testimonyย 

Yesterday, while at BJs I ran into my old work first program director. We got to talking and she said she was proud of me and I should come check out their new facilities and share my story. Most don’t know but I was homeless for quite a while and leaned toward welfare for help. Of course the lady assumed I was lying and threaten to put me and my daughter in a shelter. I ended up at Homefront FPC at The School for the deaf, which is where I attended this work first program. I learned how to use Microsoft office, got a place to live (ny 1st apt on stuyvesant ave) and then found a job at the Old Navy in Hamilton Market place it was just opening up. Left due to no steady hours, went back to welfare and joined another WF program and got in the state of nj as CWEP (Unpaid intern) for a 1 1/2 and got hired permanent in 2009. Been on my own since my first apt and left welfare behind. I said all that to say this, everyone needs help and you shouldn’t be ashamed, understand where you been and where you are now. Be proud of yourself and thank God! I been working every since. Maintaining my household and raising my kids as best I can, so before you judge me understand that that’s just a piece of my story and it doesn’t define me.

Checking In

Hey guys I know I have been slacking on the blog tip, I swear I gotta find my way back (in my Jahiem voice). These last couple of weeks have been uber busy between military ball and my sisters baby shower, I kind of got sucked in. Here are a few pics from the shower:

Okay, now that all that is done I have put my focus back into my son’s summer plans. He will be doing extended school year, hopefully the transition and this new school will help more than anything else. My daughter’s summer program starts soon after school is over.

I wanna do beach trips with friends ans family. Hopefully, that will work out. Also, planning a bbq and show off the boo thang if I can.

I know I was all over the place, I can’t wait to meet my niece!! Trust I will post pics!!
