It’s one thing to say you’re 40,

but BEING in your 40’s is totally different!

At least it is,

in my mind.

Last year at this time, 

I was just trying to keep my head above water.

This year,

Shug is healthy,

we’re happy,

and all is as well as it could be.

I’m blessed to be able to see 41.

It’s just a number……

stars-3Shug is all set to return to work next Monday.

He’s recovering much quicker than expected.

He’s off crutches and walking with a cane.

He’s doing great!

Happy Birthday Martin Luther King, Jr.

I can only wonder what he would think about the history that will be made tomorrow.

Our nation’s First Black President will be inaugurated.

You can feel the energy in the air.

I never imagined I would see this in my life time.

I thank God that my parents are alive to witness this.

Watching their excitement is awe inspiring.

It’s also my fertile time!

I don’t expect anything to come of it.

Especially since it feels like I’m ovulating from my right ovary (which is blocked).

But we’re making the most of it anyway.

Having fun with the sessy times.

Who knows, we just might get lucky.

Stranger things have happened!

Blown apart!

I don’t have much time, but here’s the deal.  Shug’s knee, for lack of better words, is FUCKED UP!! Not only is his knee dislocated, his ACL, PCL, LCL and Peroneal Nerve are shredded.  His lateral hamstring and his PCL are both pulled completely off the bone.  He’s still in the hospital on IV pain medication.  He is scheduled for reconstructive surgery on Friday.  We’re looking at two months on crutches and a lot of rehab. 

Please say a few extra prayers for us.  We need them!

I couldn’t make this shit up if I tried.

Guess where I spent the night?



Shug's Leg


Shug slipped and fell in the house. Dislocated his knee and tore up everything in between.  He was at home alone, so he had to call 911.  Luckily my mother and neighbor were available to let EMS in the house because he was down in the bedroom.  They admitted him last night because he knee is blown!  He is having an MRI this morning and exploratory surgery this afternoon.  They will repair what they can today, but he will probably have to have another surgery to repair his ACL in a few weeks.

I’m not going to say it, because I’m seriously thinking that we’re cursed! I’m thinking we’re well seasoned now. Don’t you?

*big sigh*

PLEASE…………..just keep us in your prayers!!
