 JUST SIMPLY VERY SAD……………

Memorial Day weekend has brought violence to Chicago, with six killed and at least 22 wounded so far, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

On Friday evening a 17-year-old girl was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene, and an 18-year-old man was shot in the chest in the same incident. Later that night another man was shot and killed.

On Saturday, Gregory Dixon, 29, was shot to death about half a mile from President Barack Obama’s Kenwood neighborhood home. Dixon buzzed the gunmen into the apartment building himself, according to police. The attackers then entered through a door left ajar and shot Dixon in the chest and back.

Also on Saturday, and 18-year-old man was shot in the head in a possible drive-by.

On Sunday, police responded to a disturbance call and found Malcolm Dobbey, 27, shot to death in a backyard. Detectives were questioning a “person of interest” in the fatal shooting, but no charges had been brought as of Sunday evening.

Charles Jones, 42, the manager of a gentleman’s club, was shot and killed during an incident in which a Buick LaCrosse sideswiped Jones’ Maserati. When Jones pulled over to confront the other motorist, the driver and a passenger walked to another vehicle and then came back. One of them had a gun and shot Jones dead, police said. A 42-year-old woman in his car was wounded by a shot to the hip or back.

Traits of A Gossiper


First and foremost – if you are PLEASE STOP IT! You are worth more than the SILLY TIME that you are spending disrupting the lives of other people who clearly and obviously was NOT thinking of you –

When people are feeling bad about themselves, they sometimes think they’ll feel better if there were someone worse off than they are. It’s like, it’s okay being near the bottom, as long as they’re not actually on the bottom. The easiest way for them to make sure someone else is on the bottom is to make up a rumor that puts him or her there.

To feel like part of the group
If everybody else is gossiping or spreading rumors, you might feel you have to do the same thing in order to fit in. When you’re “in on the secret,” you’re in the group. Unfortunately, the person who the gossip or rumor is about is usually left out of the group for the same reason that you’re let into it.

 

For attention
When you know a secret that nobody knows, or are the first person in your group to hear a rumor, it can make you the center of attention. A rumor or piece of gossip is sometimes like money; telling it to people is like buying their attention, if only for a few minutes. You might even save up a really scandalous rumor, waiting for the right moment to blab so you get the greatest amount of attention
for it.

Out of boredom
This has to be the #1 reason people spread rumors! They are bored and have nothing PRODUCTIVE going on in their OWN LIVES.  Sometimes, a period where everyone is happy and getting along just seems kind of-dull. Spreading juicy dish might shake things up a bit, or get two people to start a fight, and that would make life a little more exciting. All those tabloid newspapers and TV shows full of celebrity gossip are pure proof that rumors are a popular form of entertainment.

For control or power
Certain people always want to be in control and at the top of the latter. You probably know at least one person who needs to be the leader, say what goes, and make all the decisions. When people are at the top of the popularity scale, or are determined to climb higher, one way they do this is by reducing the “status” of another person. Spreading rumors and gossip is one of the main ways people cut another person’s status, especially among girls. It’s like one caveman beating up another caveman for control of the tribe-only it’s done with cruel whispers and petty remarks instead of fists.

Out of jealousy or a need for revenge
If you’re jealous of someone’s looks, popularity, or money, you might gossip about that person to hurt him or her. If you feel that someone’s done something bad to you, or deserves to be hurt, making up a rumor might satisfy your sense of justice.

Now, if you have ANY traits of this then you have to just admit that you indeed are a gossiper….

It is okay, because now you can “Get a Life”…. and work on it!

Dear ( ME )

Inhale….pause….exhale….now breathe…….


It is ALMOST time for the new hit tv show called >>>> SCANDAL!!! LOL

scandal

Yes!! I soooooooo love this show!

GOOD NIGHT…………..

Family

Poor Jared-


Well I did try!!! I FORGOT to pick up his best friend to go to the movies and to eat with us because I GOT ANOTHER BUSINESS CALL…. I feel like that I lost the mother of the year award from my own son!!! UGGGHHHHH

I figured if I kept cracking jokes that it would get him to cheer up – he is sooooo sooo not happy right now! He rather stare VERY HARD at the television in our eatery than talk to his poor mom!

I offered this boy a MAKE UP play date with his best friend and he never even FLINCHED an eye brow….let alone an eyeballl!!! I even asked him to take photos with me to try and get him to at least CRACK a smile….. NOPE #tryagainmom

I just asked him why cant I get a break and he said… MOM YOU ARE ALWAYS BUSY! I too advised him that I AM ALWAYS available for him and we are together at least 85% of the time – My son even loves politics now – ( really since he was about 6 ) because I take him to ALL OF THE CAMPAIGNS that I work on. So he could see what I do…… what I LOVE and to get him involved in understanding WHY POLITICS IS, HOW IT WORKS AND WHY IT IS IMPORTANT. He is 10 years old and by the age of 7, he already picked his political party!! The ex president that I am obsessed with – he reminds me daily that he lives in another state and he is also no longer the president! LOL ( WHO CARES! )

I did NOT want to disregard what he said just in case he REALLY felt that I was too busy and not spending enoug QUALITY time with him and he said he just said that because he was mad and all the cell phones kept ringing – he had a VERY VALID POINT via the cell phones….so I cut them all off.

My son then said – Mom that show that you like called Scandal because its about Politics – I said yeah ( all smiling ) He said, you are that lady Olivia Poe she is always busy and her friends are the people she works with! I said OUCH!!! I said well my friends are in the church and political arena and what is wrong with that? He said nothing but that lady is too busy to get married!!!! I SAID OUCH AGAIN!!! LOL I told him that “getting married” SURELY IS THE EASY PART – but being with the RIGHT MATE is something that surely takes time. I KINDLY reminded him and said to him in a serious but sweet voice……………..

That my future husband has to be A PERFECT FIT FOR ME AND YOU BUDDY! and there is alot into being Godly connected! He laughed and said..Oh yeah, you are right mommy because I wouldnt want you to get killed or anything! I said huh??? He said I remember watching that Drew Peterson story and we can just wait until God sends us the right person, so I dont mind us both being busy all the time!!

I SUPER DUPER SCREAMED………………. OUT LAUGHING AND SAID THANK YOU SON!!! LOL – He is a trip!!

I had a HAPPY LITTLE YOUNG MAN sitting beside me and we are BOTH now two happy campers!! He’s my Inspiration….

I have a little treat for my baby when we are done hanging out…. Im gonna go hang out with my mom and sister and he can have fun with another friend of his that lives closer to the house – he will be happy…. What parents do for their kids happiness! LOL

Parenting

Another Trip!


Oh how it is sad sometimes as parents when we SHIFT our kids off to camps over the summer! Nonetheless, just as the kids need their space, so DO WE LOL!

Talking to my mom about my son being gone so much over the summer, you know she is from a totaly different generation so after this trip, her facil expression was like…this is it! LOL

Well, I do not really feel that the way she feels is 100% via her generation, but more so the way that this current world is that we live in – #horrid! It is very crazy out here and with the Penn State and Jerry Sandusky / Joe Paterno foolishness, that does not make her feel any better! Well me either, but the camps that I have sent my little LOVE MUFFIN to, I prayed about them and felt comfortable so I allowed him to go….

This camp is actually from the church that my son is a member of so there was really no need for any panic…. NOT SAYING that nothing happens in “the church” because we all know that NOT to be totally true….. He was so overjoyed to get packed up and to go because his friends were also going on this trip, which made it all worth it to him! LOL

As much as I feel that I have been needing a break lately due to my WHOLE LIFE literally revolving aroudn my son – when it was time for the bus to pull out – I was sad!……

My son jumped on the bus so FAST – I could not really get MY PROPER MOMMY HUG! I tell that boy, you never know when it may be the last time that you see a loved one, so when you are departing from one another…give love! I understand he was with his friends – but give me a QUICK HUG – give a HIGH FIVE – just give me something right?

Yes, I went to his window to talk to him – pray with him AGAIN and remind him to be good!

One of his other friends came over to say hello and to get in the picture – BYE boys!

 

Politics

Covered Up No Longer –


Welp…. you may not recognize the blue cover but that finger standing straight up most college football fans and participants just might! This is the statue of the ex famous pro family. pro child advocate, Joe Paterno……  also known as ” J O – PA “……

The covers has been pulled off and things unfortunately after soo soo many years are being dealt with…. Penn State tearing down the statue is just ONE thing they are showing the public and most importantly the families of the victims that they are trying to ” RECTIFY ” as much damage as they can….

I find it silly that the Governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Corbett, is the one that STARTED THE INVESTIGATION and not one single person from Penn State University….. which shows how FAR UP the cover up went of course…..

It is very interesting that the people involved or had the authority to speak up and out are STILL obtaining a pay check while they are on leave AND the people that quit or was terminated STILL are able to get their PENSION!!!

DRUM ROLL PLEASE >>>> even Sandusky!!!!  This case makes you LOVE America and respect the political foolishness that this wonderful “allows”…. UGGHHHH

How about this one >>> If Penn State University chose to tear down the statue – then why CONTINUE to let his family get the proceeds of  “his pension” that is worth MILLIONS! UGGHH

The NCAA President decided not to give the football program the death penalty which I feel was fair PREDICATED they obtain a new brand new coaching staff…..but major “kuddos” for the board losing out on multiple scholarships as well as bowl appearances…

scandalous Politics and Red tape are two ugly things!
