A November To Remember!

What a month November has been! It went by really fast, but it was a great month for me. My son turned 26 and I turned 52! What a blessing! My hubby took me to Chocktaw Casino for the weekend and we had a blast! We didn’t win much, but it was a great getaway!

I can’t believe that the year is almost over! I’m so grateful to still be “in the land of the living”, like the old folks used to say!

Aside from birthdays, not too much has been happening.

It’s a great thing when you realize you don’t have drama and chaos in your life. I have a wonderful life and I thank God for it everyday!

Netflix Series: Must Watch!

I’m addicted to Netflix Series!! Help!

I know it’s been a few minutes since my last post, so please forgive me. I’m trying to put more focus into actually getting things done instead of writing about them. LOL Cheer me on!!

Right now, I’m trying to really pay attention to what I’m eating. Being a diabetic is hard and it feels like even if I try to eat “better” I’m still eating wrong for a diabetic. It feels like a no-win situation. If I try to eat “less”, it’s ok but I’m still eating too many carbs. For example: a sandwich.

All I can do is my best. God knows my heart and I really am trying to do better. Aside from my food issues, let’s talk about my Netflix time! Yes, I am still stuck on series…

I just finished watching Fall of the House of Usher. OMG, what a series!! It was so easy to get into considering how they started, with the main character going back in time. Some things really rubbed me the wrong way in Episode 2 with the club scene and the satanic sounding music and lyrics! That was a bit much, but after that, it began to flow and I got into it.

I was also going back and watching the old seasons of Love is Blind. Season 2 with Shake! OMG, that was by far the best season! I also checked out Surviving Paradise. This one was really good and I definitely had some folks on there that made my blood boil every time they were on screen! One word: Tabitha!!

Right now, I’m watching Love in the Wild. I’m in the middle of it right now and so far, I like it. Not sure if it will be one of my favorites, but I’m enjoying it. Next on my list is Six Feet Under and The Family Business.

Let me know what you think of these if you have watched any!

My Son: My Success

What are you most proud of in your life?

I am most proud of my son, Ramel. He has grown up to be a man of integrity. He’s honest and hardworking and knows how much God has done for him.

Ramel moved out when he was 19 and has successfully been on his own since then. He will be 26 on his next birthday and I couldn’t be prouder.

Moving Day Success

Moving day with my son was a success. He moved into a smaller one bedroom, since he didn’t need a study anymore. I didn’t do any lifting but I did help with packing and cleaning. LOL I was exhausted by the time I got home but I’m so grateful I was able to help him.

He had 2 great friends come over and help with the heavy lifting. God always makes a way! I don’t know what I would do without Him.

Things have been pretty calm lately. Hubby and I are just trying to concentrate on getting some things done over the next few months. It’s really amazing when I sit back and think of all of the things God has done for us. Like I was telling my son, God has truly brought us a long way! I look back at our lives 7 years ago and you wouldn’t even recognize it.

Are My Hobbies Weird?

Daily writing prompt
What is your favorite hobby or pastime?

There are a lot of things that I consider hobbies, but the main ones are:

  • Certain Arts and Crafts
  • Journaling and Blogging
  • Bingeing Netflix Series

Right now, I’m watching the new season of Love is Blind. I have seen a few of the other seasons, but not all of them. I have a few of my arts and crafts hung in my office, so maybe I will show you a few of them in another post!

I have loved television since I was a child. I used to sit up at night and watch Get Smart and Three’s Company while everyone else was asleep.LOL I watch movies every now and then, but television will always have my heart!
