Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Sunday, October 2nd, 2011

Its October and all month long is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

First of all make sure that YOU make an appointment and get your mammogram done.  Its important. We as women take care of a lot of folks and sometimes we let our health slip by the way side.


Next be a pal and go with a girlfriend, family member, neighbor, anyone and get them to their appointment.  Yes you are your sisters keeper.  You could save a life.

For more information, check out National Breast Cancer Awareness Month at or the Susan G. Koman for the cure at

The picture is from my Raiders football team (LOVE THEM!) and take care of yourself.

I have been remiss in my blogging duties.  Not because I wanted to, but because life is been doing its thing and sometimes I have had to play catch up.

I will be blogging again very, very soon




When did that start happening?

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

There is something new going on in my world.

Something that Im not sure if I like or not

Its something that happens to “other people”

Im starting to be called……Ma’am.  A lot!

Lemme explain.

I started noticing it a couple of weeks ago.  I’m in the store and a young person said “excuse me ma’am and I didn’t move.  He wasen’t talking to me.  There had to be someone else around.  So I didnt move.  And yes I heard the “huff” as he went past but I didnt pay it any attention.  Someone else must have gotten on his nerves cause it certainly wasent me.

Yeah, my ego was in denial.

A few days after that, I was on BART (our version of a subway here in the Bay Area) and another young man said to me “Ma’am, would you like to sit down?”.  And he had the nerve to be looking me in the eye when he said it. OMG!  He’s talking to me

*yall hear that…my ego is cracking and falling to the ground*

When did that happen?!?  When did I get to the point of life where being called ma’am is a recurring occurrence?  I mean, yeah I have noticed that the greys are showing up more often.  And yes there are a few more lines than there used to be.  And yes I can look back over my life and say things like “I had been in the workforce for over 20 years” and have the work history to back it up.

But I didn’t need the rest of the world to notice lol  Dang! 

Now dont get me wrong….I have no issue with my greys.  I’m one of those chicks that refuse to color my hair cause whats the point of that?  I’m older….it is what it is and its a true blessing.

I just have to check the ego and the next time I here “ma’am”  I will just assume that they are talking to me and act accordingly.

Hey Santa,

OK looka here, I have been a good girl…well pretty good…all year and I have a list of things that I want for Christmas.  Ok you ready here we go

Car:  Nothing much…a cute little something to get around.  I even have a picture take a look

See the pic is the 2006 version of the Land Rover and Im good with that one but if you can get me the 2011, that would be great

2. A new place

I think that I wanna be homeowner but I don’t think that I want the responsibility that come along with it.  See I want the perks but not the headache.  Hey what can I say, Im a simple girl *shrug*

But if you see fit to get me a house, could ya make it this one?

For this one you would need to have a chat with the folks over at HGTV so they can put the winner of the house out and then have it moved to Cali.  Thanks!

3. A new sweetie

Ok so I’m looking to be in love again. It would be great if you could put this in my Christmas stocking.  If you do, I would really, really appreciate it

Yes, I want Idris in my stocking….WHAT?!? I like tall, dark and sexy Chocolate

Uhmmmmmm…I think thats all that I want for Christmas….well, beside world peace,  everyone living in a safe place and nobody goes hungry.

See Santa, I really am a simple girl

YES! I won…

So whats a girl to do?

Well so far I’m watching Brown Sugar and writing you guys lol.   But there will be a hot bath, a glass of wine and maybe the a Jill Scott or Angie Stone in my immediate future lol

But is that it?  Is this all that there is for the empty nester?  The single chick who is still cute and in the prime of her life?  Oh hell no!  There has gotta be more than this….and Imma find it.

New mission:

Fill my free time that gets me outta the house and meeting folks.  You guys are invited to join me on this mission if you choose.  Oh but wait, your reading my blog so your already in lol

Yeah y’all will be hearing about SOME of my dating life (hey I’m a single chick of course Imma talk about my dating life lol Y’all knew that, right?)  We will talk about the good, the bad, the comical and the totally nuts of dating and making a choice between Mr. Right Now and My Forever (and hopefully I will be able to make the right choice).

You guys have a good nite!

A note to 20-something Margaret

Monday, October 18th, 2010

To my 20 year old self, lets talk.

Looking back over our life, there’s some things that we need to discuss.  I have some things that I wanna give you a heads up on.

- The first guy you was gonna married, he died a few months after you broke off the engagement.   You wasen’t quite sure if your breakup was the right thing but it was so ease your mind about that.  And you find out from his mom that he still loved you.  Rest yourself.

- Step out on faith more.  You was always so guarded.  Relax, your stronger than you think.

- The baby daddy Hmph!  Next subject lol good thing you followed up on that paperwork.  He owes you a lot of money now and it follows him around the country. hehehe

- You do get engaged again but it won’t work out.  You will be crushed.  He does realize his mistake (you know realizing that you are who you said you are) and whenever y’all talk, he wants to walk down memory lane.  You don’t fall for the madness cause he got wayyyyyyyy too much baggage.  God closes a door and opens a window always.  Remember that.

-You’ll go thru a couple of cars lol No biggie there.  Just know that cars are material things.  Long as you don’t end up on the street, everything else can be replaced.

-You cant help everyone.  Stop it now and save yourself some time.

-Our daughter grows up to be a pretty good kid.  You do become a grandma in your 40′s but its a really good thing.

Life turns out to be pretty good for us.

Oh and I forgot one more thing…….have fun!
