Sometimes and Always

Sometimes: I let my work pile up until the end of the month. Something about filing just does not excite me.
Always: I get started with so much vigor and get a lot of it done and then stop short of completing it and save the rest until next month(s).
Sometimes: Especially this week, I use the olympic coverage as good nap television.
Always: some events put me right to sleep! so I get the best nap that I have had in a long time.
Sometimes: I feel bad for Robin Roberts. This morning her jaw literally locked up on her in the middle of her report and she had to leave off the air in the middle of broadcast.
Always: I pray for her healing as if I know her.
Sometimes: I expect the worst or the same outcome as others because that’s all I hear instead of expecting what is for me.
Always: When the worst doesn’t happen then I am all the more thankful to God and continue to have my faith stretched for the best!
Sometimes: I am quoted a prescription price over the phone because my great horrible ok insurance decided to cover the procedure but not the medication.
Always: When it gets delivered, its a different price. Best believe I called and fussed galore about that. My file has been notated. LOL
Sometimes: I realize I write more here then I would probably have in a conversation with close friends.
Always: I find that its ok… afterall, I blog about my life and this what its all about.
Sometimes: When I can’t make time for a vacation, I line up a day of on demand funny movies.
Always: Laughter is a great remedy for a stress free day!
Sometimes: My husband won’t share with the world his accomplishments. I believe it was just how he was raised.
Always: I am wifely proud of his accomplishments so I tell the world for him!
So… my Husband the musician, is a songwriter and has gotten even more placements.. Not only will he have a song on Jonathan Nelson’s latest record “Finish Strong” to be released later, he will have songs on Shekinah Glory Ministries upcoming album, a song entitled “Without You” and possible placement on Tye Tribbett’s upcoming CD! GO HUBBY! Your wife is indeed PROUD OF YOU! and this is all within one year!

Monday’s Musings

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.. 
This weekend was all about family for me. 
My little sister came down from New York so that we could go to our cousin Qiana’s Bridal Shower.

The theme was Garden Party and hats were preferred… we all went with the Fascinator look for the party. Thats my little sister on the left and my little cousin, the Bride to be on the right.. 
These amazon height (5’11 and 6’0) young ladies had to stoop down to my height 5’7, which is short in my family. 

Here is my little cousin with her mom who was so happy and emotional. I know for sure that she may be wailing at the wedding. My cousin did look beautiful that day. I don’t know how any of us are going to have a dry eye.

My sister and I got the party started… it was so hot this weekend but we were determined to look like ladies and not take off these hot blazers and sweaters.. but it did protect our arms from the mosquitos.

I also tried a new lipstick that my sister brought home. It was a promo for an indie make up line. What do you think?

Last Night, I went to celebrate my best friends Birthday. We had a great time at Fogo de Chao, which apparently the food must’ve been so good because THIS is the only picture that I have from last night. These awesome candles when lit, the flame color was the color of the wick. I couldn’t capture it so great in this picture but it was so cool in person. 
Happy Birthday Jourdan!

Oh No! I am one of THOSE people

Dag! I realized it today as IT was back at my work computer once again fixing the holes that were created when they updated us to Windows 7, that I am one of THOSE people…
What type of people you may ask?!
I am a Microwave Society member… may as well admit it.
I am a card carrying member of 80’s babies who were on the cusp of the information boom and now feel like I am catching up and staying with it all in the same token.
It’s not all I have known.
I have remember when stories like a life without a cell phone, CD’s and everything else they tried after that…life without Apple stores and the products they make to cripple help us.
I figured this out when I stood over the IT guy telling him over and over that the downloading bar was STUCK at 99% for the longest.
He walked away and helped someone else and I yelled at him that it still was NOT MOVING!
They laughed as I pressed buttons and the computer would ding back at me…taunting me.
I realized then.. I needed to take a chill pill.
Clearly I am a want it now person.
I constantly would have to pray to God for patience.
But, I think I have truly learned somewhat of a lesson on being careful for what you pray for.
God won’t just answer your prayers sometimes, he will put you in situations to find your answer.
For example,
God doesn’t just gift us patience. He puts in situations where we can’t help but BE patient.
I guess I prayed for patience so much when it was wearing thin and I would be on the verge of explosion that God truly slowed me down and made me become patient through so many areas in my life.
I didn’t get the career job started immediately. I had to apply 3 times for the same position just to be hired in a different one that was much better for me.
My husband and I didn’t get married immediately or have that fairy tale story. I had to be patient and wait.
But in learning to wait in some areas, I can’t help but to realize that I am work in progress.
And yes, although I can admit it’s ok to rush technology…
I am still waiting on some things that just can’t be microwaved.

Sometimes and Always

Sometimes: I don’t how to start this type of post off…
Always: Something reminds me of things that I meant to say
Sometimes: I get super irritated when people waste my time and are late!
Always: I am late. LOL.
Sometimes: It irritates me with a passion when they cut things from the work computer. No more GChat, Pandora Radio, now no more YouTube because our Flash Player is gone!
Always: I try to negotiate with IT as to WHY I need such things in my life, which of course are all distractions from my job but, that’s how I work more effectively. It’s just me? ok.
Sometimes: I forget that I didn’t put the umbrella back in my car when I come to work.
Always: I pray to the Lord above that all precipitation has come and gone by the time I get off. So far so good.
Sometimes: I wish I could go back to when I did not have a care in the world versus when I was trying to become grown so quickly.
Always: Thankful I can see the world through the eyes of the babies around me… it’s the next best thing.
