Wow. Wow. Wow.

Wow. I haven’t logged in here in forever. Matter of fact, the only reason I logged in was to remove my contact info, as I was being inundated with SPAM. Then I felt all warm and fuzzy and had to post a little note.

This place is OUTDATED. On the backend, it’s bad. I still have a family of websites. A news and entertainment site, as well as a social network for Black people, but I haven’t done personal blogging in a while. While I miss it, I’m not sure if I want to refresh things around here. I’m in the middle of releasing some big projects and I don’t have any free time.

I will say that I will check back when my projects are finished to revisit the idea of personal blogging.

In the meantime, check out my book that I released a few years ago.

What About Mom?

I love to learn.

I don’t always have the time to do it.

One day, my oldest daughter told me she wanted to learn how to do everything in the world, and as silly as that sounds, I understood it. I have so many interests, that sometimes it’s overwhelming. So much to do, so little time.

Anyway, I wanted to share the things I’m learning/reading now. I learn a lot when working with the kids. More than I ever expected. But these are things I’m doing on my own.

How to Think and Argue
Intro to Philosophy
Intro to Digital Sound Design
Reading: The Well-Trained Mind, The Iliad/The Odyssey

How do I fit that in when I homeschool full-time, work at home and have a toddler? It’s hard. I have to MAKE time. And unfortunately, things that a lot of parents can get through quickly, take me quite a bit longer. But, it’s okay.

Do you do any self-education? If so, what things are you learning or reading?

Will Make Up a Title Later.

I’m a procrastinator. I thought I was the worst procrastinator in the world. Now I know better. But, that does not remove the fact that I am a procrastinator.

Many times in our lives we will put off the hard things, the mundane things. Until a later time. Until there is no time left.

I have a new job now.

My body has the tough job of creating life. This is not a job that allows a break. I can’t call off. I have no control over how and when things are done. I am along for this ride. Men, do you hear this? It’s a job. 24/7.

I have had mild symptoms. Tons of time in the bathroom, tighter fitting bras, mild twinges in the uteral (if it’s not a word, it should be) area. But today…today, I woke up and there was a monster within me. THE HUNGER MONSTER. Wow.

Have you ever gone a while without eating? Maybe even all day? You get hunger pangs. Your stomach kinda makes all these weird begging noises. Maybe even you just FEEL empty? Yea. THAT, dear Internet, doesn’t compare. I felt like there was a black hole in my stomach. I was being sucked into it. Soon I’d disappear and the kids would have to say, “Oh our mother? We have no mother. Her stomach ate her.”

That feeling is not normal. Not good. Then I remembered, my body is working all day and all night. She is deserving of a meal as often as she’d like. The thing is, there is no:

  • Oh, I’m a little hungry.
  • Okay, now I’m pretty hungry.
  • Yea, I’m kinda starving now, haha.

Total time passed = 4-5 hours

This is not funny, Internet. There is no HAHA. This is not a game.

This is the order of a pregnant woman’s hunger thoughts:

  • Woooooooo, I am STARVING.
  • MAY DAY, MAY DAY, I need food NOW!!!! OH EM GEE!
  • Ughhh, I didn’t get food in time, now I’m feeling pukey.

Total time passed = 30 minutes

Yep. Not eating can make you feel pukey. In my case it WILL make me feel pukey.When you get hungry, you must eat.

So, all this is to say, I am currently a slave to my own body.

She says, “Eat!”, I must say, “eat what?”

She says, “Sleep!”, I must say, “ZZzzzz.”

She says, “Puke!” Well, you get my drift.

You Love Me.

So, I have an announcement. But I’ll save that until later.

I will admit, I am horrible at updating my blog. I have always been and I think I should just surrender to the notion that I may never be a daily (weekly/monthly) blogger. At least I’ve been consistent in that sense, eh?

There are so many IMPORTANT things that I seem to leave out. Here’s a short list:

  • I was dating a guy for 5 years.
  • We got engaged.
  • I got a dog. (Is that really important?)
  • We got married.
  • I moved to Maryland.
  • *insert other stuff that I left out while I was updating on the mundane crap*

If that isn’t the definition of a BAD BLOGGER, I dunno what is. At any rate, consider yourself updated.

Now that you know my life story, let’s move forward.

I am currently in Maryland, and so far I like Maryland. I will like it more when we move into our “own” place, but let’s not let that ruin the picture I’m painting. I like Maryland. I like Maryland for us as homeschoolers too. Yes, we are still homeschooling. I’ve researched tons, as geeks tend to do, and I can’t wait until we are settled and able to do more activities around the state. The kids like it so far, although they miss home. I miss feeling physically closer to my family and friends, but not sure if I really MISS Cleveland. That’s probably the feeling the kids are having. The kids love his family and his mom takes them places (and that gets them out of my hair for a bit), and they come back with treats and they want to go again.

So, we’re here and we like it and…what’s next right?

Oh yea. That announcement.

Once upon a time there was a man and a woman. The man loved that woman. And he married that there woman. And that there woman became with child.

Became with child?

That’s what I said.

I added a wordpress app to my iPod. Do you think this will help me blog more? Maybe. Probably not.
