“The Cover Comes Off….No More Filters!”
“The other day, my daughter was getting ready for her date and she asked me “Do these pants make me look fat..and does my hair look right?” I said, “You look beautiful princess.”
“The question I am asking myself is, “Why am I telling her she is beautiful, when I can’t even be convinced myself I am beautiful on the outside as well as inside…so I decided…No More hair extensions, perms, just natural back to my roots. Lip gloss and baby oil.”
-I have short grey hair….why?….Life and illness
-Stretchmarks on stomach, butt and thighs….why?….3 beautiful angels born who are my whole world
-Boobs sag almost to my stomach…why?….Its Gravity..lol
-I forget things sometimes….why?….Im 41
-I gained 10 lbs this last year….what am I doing about it?……Eating healthier and walking
*So in Essence…I want men and women to know that until you are comfortable with your own skin inside as well as outside, the world will always expect you to look like you came out of a magazine. Inspired by my beautiful princess, Briana. Love you mom❤

My husband told me the other day that he had a dream and when he woke up he had a 5-line Limeric in his head of our last 20-years of marriage💍…he said “I wrote it down and went write back to sleep..If I hadn’t I’m sure I would’ve forgotten it..lol”. So he read it to me….I 😢
To my wife:
20 years married is alot to serve
with each other we quite deserve
Happy, sad, bored or excited
together as one we stand united
and with this I ask for the next 20 to reserve.
Love you so much babe❤😘🎸😢

We left off last month with starting an Employee of the month winner…which was me, by popular vote, and I was exempt from chores for a whole month. So this month, I got to pick who was Employee of the month based on their performance last month. Last month, we split up into 2 teams, Briana and her dad then Devon and Jr. And the winner was Devon and Brian Jr. for great teamwork when it came to dishes and towels!! On the other side, Briana and her dad…I have no ideal what was going on but, yeah with taking care of our dog Sage and cleaning bathrooms…I’m sure you can figure it out..lol.
So in doing this team experiment, we realized that while having two people in charge of multiple chores and working together..doesn’t always get things done unless you do follow-ups with each other and actually setting schedules. This month, since Jr and Devon won the challenge last month, they are exempt from chores and everyone else has there own individual chores.
Mom-Dishes 🍽/ cleaning bathrooms🚽
Dad-Towels💦 and sweep/mop floors💧
Briana– Taking care of our dog Sage🐶 and vaccuming🏡
Stayed tuned next month to see who wins this challenge voted by Devon and Jr.

So we left off last month with the Smith Family learning a new way to communicate in their family meetings called Zoom. We rejoin the Smiths in their March meeting with topics such as chores, employee of the month, cleaning and helpful tips to save their lives.
Yesterday on Zoom….
We discussed the chore redistribution by having everyone pick a number from 1-5. After this, we had everyone split up into two teams.
We all had to write down prior to the meeting who they thought should be Employee of the Month and why….fold it up into little pieces and put into a box. Sr. was in-charge of revealing the votes. When I announced what the prize would be for the Employee of the Month…there was outrage from the crowd!! Needless to say, a couple people were not happy with the results of the Employee of the Month.
And the winner was…..MOM with 3 votes
*I won the Employee of the Month and I am exempt from chores for a whole month!!*
To end the meeting we have two teams: Briana and her dad will be taking care of Sage and the bathrooms while Devon and Jr. will be doing dishes, towels/sheets, vacuuming, sweeping and mopping. We also as the parents did a 15 minute demonstration for the teens.
Brian Sr. showed them what to look for in an oven fire and where to turn off breakers, and second, in case of flooding where the main shut-off is in the front yard and how to properly turn it off.
I showed them how to clean the bathroom properly in 15 minutes.
Until next month….which team will win Employees of the Month?
