As I did my blog walk today, finding new pages and stories to explore, Producer at heart popped up as a suggestion to follow. The particular story title on the most embarrassing moments caught my eyes, because of the fact that I've had quite a few myself. So I clicked and read her post which... Continue Reading →

I scammed a scammer

Last week, I was busy at my desk working on a project, when my work assigned mobile phone rings. I looked at the screen, there was phone number with no name assigned to it. Because it was my work assigned phone, I answered. The voice on the other end took a few seconds to respond... Continue Reading →

Loosing a friend

Today, I got bad news. Sad news. Horrible news. News that no one wants to hear. Krystal. We worked together for a few years at the DMV. She had the most beautiful clear blue eyes. Softest voice and most charming personality. She loved to bake sweet treats. She loved the holidays and decorating for the... Continue Reading →

Happy blog-a-versary!

Today marks my eleventh anniversary/blog-a-versary with WordPress! This all started out for me back in 2005, just for fun and as a journal for my then weight loss journey, on what was Microsoft Spaces . Five years and a few really good-blogging friends later, Microsoft decided to end Spaces, and because that platform had so... Continue Reading →

Writers block

Well, I feel like I have so much to say, but lately I can't seem to settle down to get the words to come out right. So, I think I can safely say, I have a case of writers block. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself to write, because I don't... Continue Reading →

Pushy co-worker chronicles

So this morning, my supervisor decided that since my pushy, obnoxious, always seeking recognition co-worker took it upon herself and put the sanitizer dispensers together, and they are now sitting in our office taking up space, why not just go ahead and put them at the elevator doors on each floor. She gets the cart... Continue Reading →

When is enough, enough!

I usually try to stay away from religion and politics, especially on my blog. But this is heavy on my heart since the first event and then this weekend.

Pushy co-worker Chronicles

She's at it again! I think she just can't help it.

Early Sunday morning I'm in my kitchen washing dishes after breakfast, planning Sunday lunch and getting my CNN fix on, all at the same time, when my phone rings.

Crazy things Trini people say

As I was driving to work this morning, I randomly remembered one of the crazy things my paternal grandmother used to say to us as children, and I had a good chuckle.

Having insurance gives you the assurance and peace of mind that things will be okay after and accident or incident. Or so I'd like to believe. In 2019 I suffered a series of unfortunate auto accidents, of which non were... Continue Reading →

My covid-19 experience

Last November I was stricken with the dreaded covid-19 virus. Being A-symptomatic, I didn't even have a clue that I was infected, and thank God, was not sick for a minute.

Daddy is blind in one eye, and because he suffers with high blood pressure, his one 'semi-good' eye that he sees with sometimes goes extremely blurry, to almost blind whenever his blood pressure goes out of wack.   Yesterday he had one of those moments with his 'seeing eye', and decided to drive himself to the specialist...
