It's Life

Talk Tuesday April 19

April 19, 2016

As always I give my opinions and you can leave yours in the comment. Please be respectful of everyone!

Zaza’s Birthday – It was a success! I invited 43 people and about 15-16 showed up that was pretty decent in my book. Her first ever birthday party was a success. I was nervous because I didn’t want the place to be empty but it turned out wonderful! It was small and everyone who needed to be there was there. She was happy and hugged me several times afterwards saying mommy you did that. Thanks to all my bloggy buddies who came out to spend the morning with us. Blogging has not only been therapeutic for me but it has rewarded me with some awesome women!

Handyman issue – So I did find a handyman…he showed up and told me the work I had for him was to time consuming (putting up bar stools and putting tables together) mind you I told him beforehand what I needed but I guess when he got there he didn’t want to do it. My bestie was at the house with me so we got there and put a lot of the stuff together ourselves. It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be and we actually put 3 things together. Now if we were seasoned handymen it would only take us about an hr but it took us 3 hrs. We got it done though and I treated her to dinner. The moral of the story is….don’t despise small things because you never know if it could turn into big things. Had the handyman did some things for me I could have thrown him some bigger jobs. I have gave up the search for a handyman and instead will just put things together myself, watch a youtube video, and/or wait until my uncle comes into town. I can’t wait on people…sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do on your own

Depression – It’s real. I don’t think anyone is above it. I use to be depressed myself years ago especially when my mother first died. I had no one…I was alone. My hubs worked so it was just me and my small baby at the time and sometimes I would just sit there all day. It was tough. It took a stranger to get me up and out. Not my friends or family but a stranger. Do not sit there if you are depressed talk to someone if you don’t have anyone call me. I will talk to you anytime day or night. I never want people to feel alone in this world and it saddens me that so many are. If someone who use to be the life of the party suddenly goes quiet and they say nothing’s wrong….trust me somethings wrong.

1800 Got Junk – So with my move came a lot of junk and things that we didn’t need. I hate when people say oh keep this or keep that it’s good…but where the hell will I put it. My garage is already filled with crap that I won’t use why add more to it. I called around to the salvation army and they didn’t want to come and get the stuff because it wasn’t new or practically new. I called around to a few shelters and they said that they didn’t want stuff they needed money……..I was like alrighty then. So I had an old couch set that was broken, my bed (the hubs and I had that for 14 years) an old dresser, my sons bed (which was broken also it was cheap from mattress firm) and a few other stuff. After calling around and getting no one to pick up the stuff I decided to call 1800 got junk. Someone on my instagram mentioned that I should sell it but I didn’t have time to put stuff up on craigslist and then try to sell it. The got junk place was expensive! I paid over 400 bucks to remove my junk….I was like geez I won’t use them anymore.


Katch Me – I am on periscope although I do go by my other name (@kokoamagazine) catch me every Wed (time is whenever but make sure you get your notifications of me) for my whump day craziness. If you missed any of them make sure you catch them.

Newsletters – Comes out tomorrow (I hope) remember there is a giveaway in each one of them so far I have given away $50 bucks in starbucks, a free logo design, a week of social media for free, and much more. I come out every Wed for that too….can you tell I love Wed. My newsletters are simple I share a lesson, give some business tips and showcase some of my favorite websites, talk about a hot topic and then do my giveaway. Simple and to the point!

“People know who they can walk over and who they can’t. If someone is walking all over you it’s because they know you’ll put up with it.”

Don’t allow people to dictate what you do and how you do it. I don’t allow people to walk all over me. I try to be nice to a certain point but sometimes you just have to go fool. The ones who go fool the most often aren’t messed with…trust me. If you aren’t a person who tells it like it is then my suggestion cut them off…that way you won’t have to say anything.

    I’m going to see if I get a newsletter tomorrow. I know I’m subscribed but it seems like i haven’t received one in a while. Anyway, glad you got to get rid of junk. Junk in an oppressor, and aint nobody got time to see if anybody wants to buy it in the meantime. I think in the long run that was $400 well spent. Glad your daughter had a wonderful birthday party. And seriously dude??? to the handyman. SMH.

    Zaza looked cute! Amen to not all 43 people showing up! As for depression, you’re exactly right, no one is above it. Depression for me is a chronic and never complete ly goes away, but instead is better on some days than others.
