Written August 15, 2013.

Happy Monday loves!!! I saw this and I felt like shouting cause chile… CHILEEE…. CHILE… This is my current life… I had to sit down and talk to myself…  This is what I said.

Dear SistaTV.

Are you holding onto too little cause you are afraid you’ll never be enough? That little voice telling you to accept too little and call it enough is a liar. Too little is never enough.

You are deserving of greatness. You are worthy. You are strong. You are enough.  Please stop holding on to what you know is not good enough because you are afraid that you won’t find better. Better is already there. Better is on it way. You just have to get out of the way and get rid of the ” This is okay,” ” I, guess, this will do, ” and “the what if I’m asking for more than I deserve”. 

This ain’t nothing but the devil and his fear, fallacies, and fairytales. You are the walking, breathing definition of God will give you double for your trouble. So have faith and let him bless you. Thank him through the trouble and thank him for the blessings.

You know good and well what you deserve. You know that you have every right to ask for it and RECEIVE it. You know that you are lying to yourself by claiming that this is Good… That this is enough. That THIS is your worth. Its not. gG forth and get the, ” This is exactly what I was looking for.” The” This is exactly what God would want for me.”

Get out of your own way.  Let it go. Let in the great. Its coming. Make room for the greatness.

SistaTV loves You… Now you love you!

Dear 4:33, An open letter to my insomnia or How I made peace with no sleep.

433Letter-to-my-insomnia

Apparently, me and four o’clock in the morning, go together like peas and carrots. I keep trying to break up with him but his ass is steadily calling me, jocking me, poking me awake at 4:33 every single morning. It doesn’t matter what time I go to sleep or plan to wake up. Without a doubt a 4:33 in the morning, EVERY MORNING, I am up staring at my wall, my ceiling, or my MacBook wondering how to overcome insomnia.

Dear 4:33 in the am,

Please give us free! Us being me. Free being sleep.

I like sleep.  My body likes sleep. MY BRAIN likes sleep.

Why don’t you like sleep, 4:33? You are the butt crack of dawn’s dawn, Your ass should love sleep. But naaawww… You ass wanna wake me up to kick it, to think, to worry, and to TALK…

Oh my GAWD, 4:33 why do you TALK sooo much. I mean the incessant chatter you fill my brain with is straight maddening. The only thing you ever want to talk about is troubles and worries and trouble. How you going to wake me out of good sleep every day JUST to worry about our oh so many troubles.

Even Stephanie Tanner is incensed…

That’s  really fucked up 4:33! I mean, I GET IT! Mostly because I spend every other waking minute in my current life worried about every single trouble I have and have had EVER. So I get the importance of thinking about trouble and being panicked about trouble….

But 4:33, now YOU have become a trouble and I can’t GO. I can’t. I won’t. I SHANT. I’m not going take that shit from yo ass, 4:33. NOPE. NO. And HELL NAW.

So listen up, 4:33, ain’t going to be no more trouble from your ass. NONE.

In the past we’ve made good use of our time 4:33, you’d wake me up and I would write, or work, or pray, or do SOMETHING productive. But as of late, you have been enticing me to do nothing but lay here bawling my broken heart out and freaking the fuck out over everything.

And uh… NOBODY has time for that. You and I both now there are some very real issues that I am up against. I have every right to depair, and cry and freak the fuck out about any one of the issues at hand but if you are going to wake me up at 4:33am every day, 4:33, then lets use this time for a resolution not more confusion.

Wake me up with  whispers of winning, wake me up with inspiration, moments or peace and some good ole moments of clarity.  I need some of that, TOUT SUITE. Its all early in the morning and peaceful if you don’t mind the kids snoring and what have you, this could be like my time of enlightenment or some shit. You could totally be a jam for us.

post-25179-you-can-do-it-gif-serious-Rob-rNbk

Come on dude. Stop being a dick. Stop giving me these stalker ass teas, and give me some Joel Osteen, Negrodamus, Dali Lama inspiration type teas, love.

Have me get up, get on my knees and say a prayer and then get on my laptop and write some good shit. Or film some good shit. Or design some good shit. You know something that will have me get up and attract some wealth and health?

Have me get up and send off some article pitches, or some design proposals or finally complete my website redesign or something that will make it so there won’t be SO many problems for us to talk about  at 4:33.This could be good ish for us both. Wouldn’t it be nice to have me roll over and see your face and greet with a megawatt smile instead of my current daily greeting of a scowl and a shout of Not YO ASS again.

Come on, Son! We could be homies!

One day very soon, you will wake me up and cuddle me with the comforts of look at what we did, SistaTV. Look at how far we’ve come. Look at how good we have it now. Look at how we’ve won.

So I’m not going to ask you to go away. I’m not going to file any department of Ambien & Sleepytime Tea restraining orders against your super stalking Sleeping with the Enemy ass .

Nope.

I’m going to embrace your nagging self and ask you to go forth with me in the direction of my dreams. I’m going to ask you to be my help not my hindrance. I’m going to ask you to help me become a conqueror.

There is something good you are supposed to guide me to and I’m going to let you. Lead me to the space where I am supposed to be and I will awake to you gladly.

This is totally what I look like on a ” Good Morning”

So, I’ll see you tomorrow 4:33 and when I do I will smile big, breathe deep, and rise strong cause  I know that you are here to help me… One 4:33am, at a time.

SistaTV Loves you.

SistaTV and the Class Field Trip… Jesus be a Xanax…

A few weeks ago, LilDivaTV came home furiously waving a field trip form in my face.

“Mommy, Mommy, can you come with us? Can you be the Class Field Trip Mom?”

I was already to say, “HAYLE NAW!” But then I knew she would give me this face and…

Who can resist that face?? Me... but that day I was off my game... Sigh...

Who can resist that face?? Me… but that day I was off my game… Sigh…

But what am I? A monster? Like a DUMMY, I said, “Yes!” And quickly rested my hope on sending in the permission slip a skosh bit too late, so some of the other overzealous parents could get dibs on being the Class Field Trip Mom or Dad.

For a moment there, the teacher was concerned that there would be too many parents for me to be able to go…

AWWWW! Too Bad! So SAD!

I carefully furrowed my brow and tried not to shout, “YIPPEEE” while I struggled to hide my sheer elation. I choked back the tears of joy, as I earnestly said,  “Awww MAN!! WELP! That’s  just too bad! But I totally understand Mrs. Teacher. Its really NOOO problem, if you can’t squeeze me in on this trip! Don’t worry, LittleDivaTV! There is always next time!”

Next time meaning, the next time Sway is able to get the answers or Kanye West is able to control his emotions and behave like a fully rational grown adult for 72 consecutive hours… ie NEVER.

But alas the devil is a  bold face lie, so this afternoon, LilDivaTV’s lovely teacher notified her that I should report to the school at 8:30, because I had made the Parent Pack for this field trip…

This was my exact reaction! Florida knows the Class Field Trip Struggle…

WHY JESUS?? WHY!

So, tomorrow I am going to find myself on a bus and then in a museum with 31 second graders for the ENTIRE day.

All day!

7 hours!

31 kids!

30 of them who I am legally NOT able to bust up side the head, one good time if they even think of trying it with me!

We don’t even get the fun of going to McDonald’s for pink slime burgers or anything. Don’t you remember when we were little we used to go to McDonald’s after the class field trip? Or was that just the Obesity Elementary I went too? Hmmm…

Well, LittleDivaTV’s school has SPECIFICALLY requested we refrain from packing with fun snacks in home lunches!  No chocolate. No fruit snacks! Nothing…

Because I’m the field trip mom I have to pretend to enjoy my deliciously healthy sprout sandwich with a side of sandpaper chips.

And on top of all that, because all of your kids are WEAK as ever, we can’t even do tradesies. Because ALLERGIES!

I’ll let MamaTV take the wheel on this one cause as she lovingly likes to point out every time she watches Dr. OZ or sees a Claritin commercial…

” What is Allergies? Who in Ghana had  ALLERGY? If your motha give you FuFu and you open your FOOLISH mouth and say ALLERGY?? EH EH! YOU WILL SEE!! What is this KantaCross Allergy NONSENSE? MTCHEW!”

Please make sure you say that in a very annoyed Ghanian Mother accent for full effect.

I kid about the allergies, but like, what if somebody has yogurt covered raisins? What if somebodies mother loved them enough to hand make them delicious ants on a log? Or spent her entire morning constructing this kind of “ain’t nobody LITERALLY got time for that” school lunch??

 

Exactly one year ago today… Someone had a dream that her child would be able to eat MLK’s head for lunch… I ain’t even mad! Picture found on Robot Squirrel and The Monkey’s blog. http://robotsquirrelandthemonkeys.blogspot.com/2013/01/happy-birthday-martin-luther-king-jr.html#.UsHkjLSEa1Y

 

What if my dream is to trade little Timmy his hand drawn MLK slice of Velveeta for my dried out.. I mean, delicious Sun Chips? NOPE. Nothing. Nada.

Because Darwin was right, I’m going to have to survival my tail into fitness and eat my own lunch… I shall deal. It will be fine, but lord knows, SistaTV is  so not ready for a WHOLE DAY with all these kids.

To be honest, weak kids I can take… But some of ya’lls kids are bad! And in the words of my favorite old negro spiritual…Sung to the tune of “The Facts of Life”

You take the good. You take the bad. You slap the mess out of the kids that’s bad. The kids that bad. I’ll beat their A$$! Remix by SistaTV

I am being very negative in this post because by 8AM tomorrow super fantastic cheery, YAY let’s sing 99 bottles of beer on the wall AGAIN SistaTV/Mommy has to be here for the whole day… So I need to dump this here so I don’t slap one of your kids right into the lap of Jesus when he mistakes me for his Naughty Chair-ing Mommy and tries to tell me that he “can do whatever he wants!” I don’t have a Naughty Chair… I have a mean right hook.

SistaTV Confession of the day: I fight bad kids. No Retreat. No Surrender.

Sigh. I wish I was one of those rich women on sitcoms and the movies who exasperatedly walks out of a room, mid-conversation breathlessly sighing, ” I need a Xanax!”

But I’m not… I don’t even know what a Xanax really is and I am completely uninterested in finding out.  So I’m going to have to grin and bear this cloudy day of SistaTV and the Class Field trip.

Lucky for me this cloud has  the super dope extra silvery lining of,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                ” I get to spend the whole entire day with LilDivaTV and she is kind of everything. So Grumpy SistaTV is going to bed right now…. And I will dream of the hour long bus ride there spent giggling, bonding, and sharing secrets with my big girl and the hour long bus ride home spent snuggled up to my baby big girl as she falls asleep on my arm, after all the fun, fun, fun we had on “The day Mommy went on the class field trip with me!!”

 

Look at GAWD... She is truly a miracle. I'm so lucky to be her mommy!

Look at GAWD… She is truly a miracle. I’m so lucky to be her mommy!

I guess it won’t be so bad after all…. SistaTV and LittleDivaTV Love You.
