20190711_172035

It is the one -year anniversary of MMMoffamilyentertainment and we have had a phenomenal year!! I started this blog last September as a outlet to help me talk about all the exciting things my family does and it has turned into something so much more!! I want to thank everyone who has been so supportive of my blog whether you were there from the beginning or you became a big fan recently. I have many goals for this blog and I want to continue making an effort to grow this blog in the coming years. Here are some of the highlights from this years blog….

Check out their interviews under “What’s Your Business” menu section. From left to right: (ManySkirts, Lauren Najar, Devion Ayers, Michiko Riezz, Danielle Renee and Kate Scully)

Check out their ads under “What’s Your Business” From top to bottom: (Lashameka Jones, Crystal Ervin, Demetria Brown, Laurie Goodman, Lorraine Bradshaw, Tiffany Hiatt and Michiko Riezz)

Speaking from personal experience…I wrote a lot about being a wife , mom and just being human. it is very hard to run so many roles. Check out my post under the “Getting Real” menu section or click below

Setting Goals for the last couple months….Well I hit some milestones on my blog and I wanted to grow my social networks and strive to hit a particular number for each one. MMMoffamilyentertainment was able to hit almost 300 followers for the year. Twitter– I hit my goal of 500 followers in 3 months. My Pinterest, I started with 7 followers in May and reached my goal of over 100 followers last week. And last but not least my Instagram at 500 followers.

Things that can probably drive a person crazy but I try to hide about myself….let’s get started

  1. I grind my teeth all the time.  I believe it is a nervous tick I have, as a result my jaw is always hurting.
  2. I like to sleep on my stomach because I don’t like looking at the ceiling.  For some reason, the ceiling creeps me out.
  3. I like to keep the closet door closed because I think there is something living in my closet.
  4. I do not like my food cold at all.  My meal has to be steaming and the cold stuff has to be the right temperature.
  5. I walk through my house in the dark and hate to turn on lights.  I figure if there is a power outage, I am prepared.
  6. If I have a light on, it stays on and my family goes behind me and turns them off.

 

Well, I hope you enjoyed learning all about me…wait till next month when I dig just a little deeper!!

Things I want to do before I kick the bucket….

  1. I want to travel to as many places as I can all around the world.  I have started my journey this year by making my way to Puerto Rico in October. 609148
  2. I want to write at least 5 books that I self publish.                     Related image
  3. Making everyday a celebration of living.  I want my family to see me happy everyday and enjoying life. I want my kids to remember me having fun with friends.having-fun-free-clipart-13
  4. Getting an RV and going on a road trip with the family.  The last time we went the five of us on a trip we drove in a car 7 hours from Florida to South Carolina.  We didn’t like the drive there but the trip was one to remember.  I am thinking if we had a bigger vehicle we will be good.

  What makes me feel better and has never failed?

                                 MUSIC

music-note-clip-art-21

   I love the sound of music. I love all different genres.  I am a fan of how music can soothe the soul.  If I want to escape within myself it is my way to solitude.  Music lowers my blood pressure, it balances my mood and it is very therapeutic for my disabilities and it also eases my anxiety. 

That’s all I got!!

31 Day Challenge-Day 21

Text_Over_Photo1565902021883[1]

Day 21…hmmm…something I miss. This I had to think about a bit because there are a lot of things I miss but If I were to look at the last 25 years, I’ m looking at my childhood and how things were when I was a teenager. I can remember the words…”Pounding the Pavement”

  1. Job Market has changed dramatically. Newspaper and flyer ads on bulletin boards. It used to be that you walk from employer to employer to fill out job applications and meet face to face with people who were your boss…now…fill out an application online and wait for talent acquisition to email, then first interviewer to contact for interview then you interview with someone else who may or may not be your boss…keep your application on file. This application process is convenient if you have a computer or cell phone but for others it creates a lot of eliminated candidates. My daughter is 16 now and she is doing it the old-fashioned way and she has had 2 interviews so far. Personal connection is lost between employer and candidate online.

2. Being able to get The News only on television. It seems like every time I turn around, I am unable to shield myself from all the bad news and anxieties of this world. I really believe that as the world gets worse with global warming, bombings and lack of respect for the people who want to wake up every morning and live their life, we will never see the light of day. I really don’t care for politics, I don’t like hearing about how much worse the people who run our government are doing. I am so tired of people not being able to leave their homes because they are afraid and with this happening…the rise in mental health issues and sicknesses allows for government and drug companies to make more money. It sucks!! Can we just go back to having 6pm and 11 pm news only and cartoons with great movies in between?

3. Last but not least…Courtships. Why is it every time I turn the television on I see teen pregnancy shows or couples divorcing after 1 year. I have been married 20 years and I have seen it all. These days it seems like it is harder to get a mate and people are just settling with the first person that looks their way. While they are looking, it seems there is the rush to procreate and have no commitments. What has happened to asking a girl out, taking her on many dates, getting know each other and then talking about plans to get married then have a family….everything is all backwards and twisted now!! Maybe I am old-fashioned but I think there wouldn’t be confusion if we were made to only be attracted to who we are supposed to be with and everyone else look like aliens…lol.

That’s all I got for you until next time….stay tuned for tomorrow for Day 21.

  Yes, it is Day 20…11 more days to go!! Hope you guys have enjoyed reading my open book..lol.  So, today, I am going to talk about 10 years from now.  We really don’t know where we will be or whether we will even be alive but one thing is for certain…I take it

   Fear of the unknown doesn’t help you live your life to the fullest.  For me, Life starts from the moment I wake up and continues on into the next day with new ideas and discovering new things.  I keep my brain refreshed by challenging myself and keeping up with what my teens are doing.  In 10 years, my oldest son will be 31, youngest son 29, and my daughter 26 while me and my husband will be 52 and 64.  I am seeing myself still traveling and probably with my teens having their own families, I will be visiting them and my grandchildren.

31 Day Challenge-Day 19

  Okay so for this challenge, I asked my loving family who knows my comings and goings and how I operate.  I told them to give me one thing that they find is one of my worst habits.  Here we go:

      My husband Brian said:

    “You do not close the lids or put lids on things tightly.”

20190808_205336[1]

     Okay, so, in my defense, I do this and it is not a good habit.  Sometimes I spill stuff but other times I get lucky and don’t.  As to closing the lids on jars, I can’t do it that tightly because of carpal tunnel and I can open lids that great so I use a can opener or ask someone to do it for me…lol

My oldest son Brian said:

“You put things in the shopping cart at the grocery store that are not on the list.”

Okay, again, in my defense, I forget to put things on the list.  Every time we go to the store, it seems there are things we need and I forget..lol

My daughter Briana said:

“You yell too much.”

Guilty as charged on all three so far….yelling is my way of getting my point across after I have already said it numerous times.  I think most people do this when they feel ignored, I am trying not to do it all the time now so I don’t raise my blood pressure.

My youngest son Devon said:

“You leave lights on too much.”

20190808_205315[1]

    Okay, so this is my light in my office…I tend to leave it on every time I leave my office but I am coming right back.  He goes behind me and turns every light off..lol

As for me, I think my worst habit is: 

“I warm up to people to quickly without getting to know them from the background.”

Image result for free images of friendships

    What I mean by this is, I have met a lot of people in my life and because I want to assume the best in them, they become a part of my life without me really seeing who they are in many different situations.  I am one of a few women who do not have many close friendships with people due to the fact that many have shown their true cards on the table after they see that I am a nice person.  I am a positive person and do not like drama, so for me to become friends with you, I expect that you show me who you are before I find out.  Communication is a strength f mine and most people who know me, know I mean what I say and do.  I am not transparent and what you see is what you get.

That’s all I got for you today…stay tuned for Day 20 tomorrow.  Don’t forget to

31 Day Challenge-Day 18

What I am afraid of? Most people are afraid of heights, spiders or being hurt by people. For me, it’s gets a little deeper for me. I have watched a lot of my friends and family members get sick and die so if I had to be afraid of something…it would be losing my ability live my life. I have so much fun interacting with the world and seeing what it has to offer, so for me to not be able to do that anymore, it would sadden me. I know I have a purpose in life and I am not going to waste it feeling sorry for myself and the limitations I may have.

For those of you who don’t know me personally, I have to endure many things as far as my health has been concerned in the last 4 years and I am finally getting to the point where I am comfortable talking about it in an open forum. Support from others who love you is important and taking it one day at a time is key.

In my daily life I struggle with:

Image result for free images of herniated discs

Image result for free images of carpal tunnel

Image result for free images of mental health

Image result for free images of headaches

Image result for free images of high blood pressure

Image result for free images of fibromyalgia

Osteoarthritis throughout my whole body along with Fibromyalgia. I have 3 herniated discs in my back along with degenerative disease so my range of motion is very limited to walking and stretching. I have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome due to a work-related injury. I suffer from high anxiety along with ups and downs. I have to keep my blood pressure regulated along with dealing with headaches on and off. All of these things seem very major right now but for me, I am able to live my life accordingly and when that is not an option…I am scared when it isn’t.

Live your best life now, don’t waste it.

That’s all I got for you today…I know this one was a tear- jerker but I promise tomorrow you will laugh…lol

Stay tuned for Day 19…..
