Life, a Beautiful Blessing...
Wow! I'm so filled with joy for Jacqueline... As you will see, she's like a big sister to me. I love her drive, her focus and I admire her strength. I'll tell you one thing, had my family not been in Costa Rica, we would have never missed the Cancer Awareness Walk or the luncheon. I believe it is very important to praise God and give all I can for such a worthy cause. We'll see you next year sis, with my workout apparel on, and I'll be with Team Harris.
FYI... if my kids get cranky, Simone, I'll be dropping them off to you. LOL Since you'll be cheering us on from the side line.
News Flash... Friend + Enemy = Frenemies
If you haven't noticed, I don't give much energy to Quad or Mariah. I recognize who my true friends are and who respects me as a women and mother. I think it is very messy of Mariah and Quad to continue to be malicious liars. Mariah tries very hard to control people: notice how she's always giving Quad permission to speak and those horrible pep talks. They both continue to talk behind everyone's back and smile in their faces. If you don't think I know this, you're the fool. I am sure of this since every other word out their mouth is "Toya." They are sitting at home plotting of ways to slander and cause me harm. These two thrive on hearsay and gossip.
What you will see is I am very REAl, very LOYAL, and NOT INTERESTED IN MESS. My asking Quad why she was upset and if it was because I declined her wedding invitation, in my opinion, wasn't mean, but rather me being straight and to the point. It wasn't until she got defensive, indignant and irrational that I had to stand up for myself. You have a right to your opinion, but only fools follow people who act foolishly continuously. People defend ignorance everyday. They think it's funny, but that does not make it right. I don't know about you, but I was raised to think before I react, listen to understand (not to just give an answer), and lastly, not be a crab in a bucket! I wish Mariah and Quad could spend less time speaking negatively on me and more time working their own lives.
An Educated Man + Educated Woman + Toddlers = Blessed Family
Now, as it relates to my family relocating. As you know we have two beautiful boys and I want them to have everything we can afford to give. They deserve a safe environment with parks close by and kids within walking (not driving) distance. I would also love an area with a mixture of moms who stay-at-home or work and who come together to create an atmosphere for family. I believe God doesn't show you things you can't have. He empowers my husband and I to make things happen within our family. I joke about not getting a job. Well right now, private school and after school care would be super expensive, and it's important to Eugene and me that one of us is always there for our toddlers. But don't get it twisted: this is not our first home and if its gonna be our last, then it has got to be the home of BOTH our dreams! His dreams are mine.
Lastly, it is nice to see a woman with a degree, a career, and bringing income into the household. Don't take everything you see on television at face value. Please believe, Eugene didn't marry a lazy woman. He married a woman who already had a bachelors in business administration and held business sales and pharmaceutical sales careers for top-three telecommunication and pharmaceutical companies.
When Eugene met me, I was pursuing my masters of education by day and working as a waitress at night. But now my focus is our children, keeping my husband happy, and managing this household, and if you cant respect that, you're just hating.
Saying what you're thinking,
