Reality bites. But I am pretty sure that I can handle whatever my reality is because of perspective. I can deal with my own stuff, but everyone else's' seems overwhelming.

  • I have a co-worker whose son was diagnosed with leukemia in November, he is the same age as Jack.
  • I have a friend who only gets $75 a month in child support and has her children 99% of the time. Single mother working her butt off to provide for her kids.
  • I have two friends who have recently undergone mastectomies for breast cancer. I am too young for this... right?
  • Autism. Bankruptcy. Cheating spouses. Grandparents who don't want to spend time with their grandchildren. Sick parents.
I don't know if I could handle these realities. The thought of them brings me to tears.

All things considered, I think I am pretty lucky. I have two children who are not perfect but I think are pretty special. I have a great group of friends and family, who believe in me, who support me. I can't ask for more. So when this happens -
you take a deep breath and handle it. Why? Because it wouldn't have happened if I couldn't have handled it. It is all about perspective.


I pride myself on being honest about things, some may mistake it for brutal honesty- SORRY. But the none the less I am honest. I come by it honestly... if you know my mother she says what is on her mind 99% of the time (pun intended).

Here is what I look like in the morning. Sexy isn't it?

I like to believe that I have a moderate improvement in my looks at some point during the day when I decide to shower, dress, and put makeup on. This is a very bad hair morning, but a product of an awesome night of sleep.

48 of my Facebook Friends think that this  picture post this morning was likable and 23 thought that it was comment worthy.

This is me. No excuses! Honestly...
