WHAT KIND OF MOTHER ARE YOU??????

My oldest son's friend has been staying with us since early Thursday morning(1:00 a.m.)
When I got home from my Wednesday nite outing.....grown folks stuff.....lol He was asleep at my house. When James got up to bring me to work on Thursday he told me the story on the way top work.

The kid( he's been friends with James since sophmore year) got into a fight with his mom lat Wednesday nite......she put him out.....he came to our house. Of course James let him in with his stuff!!!

James said "mom I know you wouldn't want the homie out on the streets" I had to let him in and I was gonna talk to you in the morning"

Now that was Thursday morning. I figured she would let it boil over and come get him on the weekend............It's been a week!!!!! No calls nothing!!!!! Everyday I ask him "did you talk to your mom?" He answers NOPE!!!!

Well last nite I asked him as I do every nite "you talk to your mom"? He replies yeah and the convo goes like this:

me: what did she say?

new.son:she wanted to know when I was gonna get the rest of my stuff

me: HUH????

new.son: she wants me to ge the rest of my stuff!!!!

Now we start to talk. We are home alone....my oldest is at work and my youngest is outside playing. He is hurt I can hear it in his voice. He says they fought over money.....everytime he gets paid, she takes/demands most of his money!!!! I feel for him....we talk about 30 minutes and I can hear the hurt in his voice....my heart goes out to him!!!

now before y'all get mad at me....I know that there are 2 sides 2 every story!!! But my point is this..........this lady doesn't know me from the man in the moon!!!! She has not called my house O.N.C.E.
SHE DON'T KNOW WHAT MY HOME IS LIKE!!!!
she don't know if we are crackheads..........
she don't know if my house is clean...............
she don't know if we eat..........................

How do you let your 16 year old stay away from home for 7 whole days and not come see about him????? I.JUST.DON'T.G.E.T.I.T.

So i'm gonna give her ass til Sunday and i'm going over there to see what the deal is!!!! I don't mind him staying with us.....but I want to know:
WHAT KIND OF MOTHER IS SHE?????

Am I going about this the wrong way???? What do you all think?????

My son is the best!!!!

James (my oldest) is the bestest son!!!! He had the car all day yesterday!!!! It has become our little ritual that he can drop me off at work on his payday!!!! That way after school he can pick up his paycheck and take care of his "biddness" lol

He went to Starbucks this morniong and got me my white chocolate mocha with xxxtra carmel sauce......yeah!!! Then when I got in the car to come to work this morning, he had not only a FULL TANK OF GAS but he got me the Alicia Keys c.d. on my seat!!!!!

My son is the best 17 year old a mom could ask for!!!!!

His best friend just had a BIG fight with his mom on Wednesday night and he has been at out house that last few nights. James told him "my mom may yell and cuss but she ALWAYS apologizes and comes and talks to me later! She would never throw me out"

I can't ever see us getting into it THAT bad that I would have to put my baby out!!! I'm soooo glad we get along!!! I am BLESSED!!!

Y'all have a great weekend.....i'm listening to Alicia right now!!!

Titleless Tuesday...........

I don't have a topic today!!!!

That will NOT stop me from posting..........lol

Too tight jeans has NOT called me back!!!!

I sent him a "good morning" text twice last week with no response!!!!

Could it be that he felt that I was not "feeling" him or the jeans?

Why do I work with soooo many haters?

Why are they sooooo concerned with what my responsibilities are?

Why did my son take his senior pics on Sunday and the prices are FUCKING outta this world?

The smallest package is.........................$225 for 8 gift portraits(wallets)

Why am I thinking of dressing him back up and taking his ass to Sears Portrait Studio?

Remember my Grandma..............

Today is my grandmas birthday. She passed away in March. I still can't believe she's gone............this May when I was picking out my Mothers day cards, I picked up 2 Grandma cards like I have always done. Then I realized I only have ONE now!!!! That really made me sad!!!

All week I have been anxious about today, wondering what emotions I would be feeling.........I want to remember all the things she taught me. I want to feel happy for her because I know she is in a better place. I know she is happy. I know she is "pain free".

I can not forget all that she taught me about being a lady and about life in general:
"ladies ALWAYS sit with their legs crossed. "

"ladies never ever leave the house without looking your best!!!"

"young ladies speak correct English. It seperates you from the rest"

"if you have it to give, give what you can, you will be better off"

"cook from the heart, with love"

"always walk with your head up high and shoulders back"

"look people in the eyes when they talk to you"

"listen when people talk to you, then respond"

"KEEP IN TOUCH WITH BOTH SIDES OF YOUR FAMILY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT THEY HAVE TO TEACH YOU"!!!

I can not imagine how it would feel to have your only child pass on before you. My dad died in November then my grandma in March. When I went home for my dad's funeral my grandma seemed fine. Then four months later she was gone.

I will remember all the fun I had with her. I will remember all the important things she taught me that I pass on to my kids. I will remember her!!!

Every October 9th I will remember Barbara Jean. A great mother, wife,mother, sister, aunt and friend. A REAL LADY who helped me to become the woman I am today!!!

I LOVE YOU GRANDMA!!!

Now im gonna drink me some coffee like grandma would do and read the paper........anybody got some Lou Rawls I can listen to?Cause grandma loved to listen to him!!!

Have a great Sunday y'all!!!

SINCE YOU TWISTED MY ARM..................

SINCE I WAS "OUTTED" BY AT LEAST TWO FELLOW BLOGGERS ...........................WHO SHALL NOT BE "OUTTTED" they know who they are!!!! LOL I guess I better post!!!!!

Here goes.........

Thursday nite.....my favorite bartender (well she is a friend as well) had a party after work for her birthday. I t was a good time. she introduced me to a guy that she tought wae "perfect" for me lol we chatted all nite and had a great time.

Friday nite...............I met said guy for coffee and we chatted some more. He took me to his place of business and explained to me what he does and showed me around and we chatted some more!!!! He is cool...easy to talk to funny but i'm not attracted to him on the physical you know?
side note: I usually opt for the physical attraction. well a lot of good that has done for me in the past....maybe I need to re-think just how important physical attraction is!!!!!
He is a gentleman, funny as hell ( a plus for some one as silly as me) and has good conversation...........great.........but I don't want to rip his clothes off!!!!! LOL

Saturday: my good friends partner had his retirement party. He retired after 20 years in the Marines. It was quite the event......DAM I WISH I COULD POST THE PICS!!! Y'ALL KNOW "them boys really know how to throw a party"!!! We all wore all white and everyone looked nice!!!! I wore a white corsette(sp?) with black lil flowers, whit capris and black strappy heels.....shit I couldn't breath or sit but I LOOKED GOOD!!!! I was a hit with the lesbians though....lol!!!! I stayed til almost 4 helping clean up!!!!

WHY DO FOLKS JUST GRAB PLATES TO GO AND NOT HELP CLEAN UP?

Sunday: sleep and sleep some more........then I went out on a dinner date and walked in the park after we ate..................it was cool but..............................his jeans were too TIGHT!!!!! I'm sorry y'all his shoes and shirt were cool but I.COULD.NOT.STOP.LOOKING.AT.HIS.TIGHT.ASS.A.LIL.TOO.SHORT.JEANS.

I am no run way model but.........I try not to judge but like I told my gurl It just helps to "look the part" LOL

He is really really nice though..........HAPPY TUESDAY Y'ALL

I WILL TRY TO POST AGAIN SOON SO I DON'T GET IN ANY TOUBLE FROM MY FELLOW BLOGGERS WHO SHALL REMAIN NAMELESS........................
