9218 South Drexel – Girl of the Southside


9218 South Drexel. (unedited. free write.) I can’t tell you the last time I have set foot on South Drexel Avenue.  I don’t even remember much of what the house looked like. I vaguely remember a porch, the couches, the kitchen, a certain smell, and some … well, maybe, all of the rooms. My memory

August goals

Goals.


Everybody says that all the time now. #Goals. #Goals. #Goals. I know we all kind of say it very tongue in cheek most times but lately I’ve been thinking about them very seriously. I like goals… Scratch that… I love smashing goals… The sense of accomplishment I get from a met goal is remarkable and so

Single Mothers Father’s Day or Whoa, there buddy! Your misogyny is showing!


I don’t want to alarm anyone and I ain’t one to gossip so you ain’t heard it from me, BUT apparently there is a rag tag band of violently embittered, single mothers running WILD all over the world and social media engaging in an illuminati inspired bid to co-opt Father’s Day? Y’all, I’m just as SHOCKED as you. When I

SistaTV Daily Podcast #8. There is a difference…


A gazillion years ago, I was a poet. I wrote, read and performed poetry everywhere. I loved books and revered words and devoured them nonstop. For the bulk of my life, words have been my only constant. But one day what I thought was love knocked on my door and love told me that me

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! No whoopings but I had to offer some ahem additional inspiration to Jumpstart the after Mother's  day clean-up.  #tiredasamother #whyareyalllikethis #howdidwafflebattergetupthere #thisiswhywecanthavenicethings ???????
The face you make when you've been kicked out of your own kitchen, told you have to stay in your bedroom, relax, and wait for breakfast in bed... but all you can hear is arguing over who gets to make what, pots and pans dropping, and wait.... is that the smoke alarm I hear?

So... I get a free tire balance with my oil change ... first he gives me my keys and i say did you do the tire rotation? He says your oil change doesnt come with any tire rotation... i say yes it does. He says no it doesnt. I pull up the info on my phone. He say oh it does say that. Then  he says that's only if you bought the tires from us. I say uhh no. He looks again  and says okay I'll pull it back in to rotate them. But if they are unbalanced. You supposed to only get your tires rotated at the place you buy them from. I say thanks how long will it take you to rotate them? He says 20-30 minutes. 30 minutes later  he calls me ans says
.. my lug nut and stud is stripped so now I have to pay an additional $60+ for them to put on a new lug nut... i do a quick Amazon search and see it costs like $10. I say Oh no thank you. I'll just have my neighbor do it. He says OH liability,  we can't let you leave cause we'll  be responsible if the tire falls off. Then I say but what if I don't have 60 to give? Silence. I have enough money to pay... but I absolutely  despise this constant upcharge game that happens every single time. #womenatanautoshop
When your neighbor is UH-MAZING!!????? What a kind and wonderful surprise to find outside my door. Thank you to Kristen for the easter eggs! No thank you to Jesus for the dandelions... Lol... I LOVEEE MY NEIGHBORS! #godisgood #happyeaster #yaylife
At last....I have risen... And so did Big Brother Almighty Jesus... So it's a good day anyway you slice it... Hope you are being loved and are feeling happy wherever you are... ?

SistaTV's Daily Gratitude List #SDGL 
1. All four of us COLLAPSED into hysterical laughter at the Arthur/kids interrupting the BBC interview meme. It tickled me so deeply that they laughed so hard.
2. When I first showed them the video of the kids interrupting the BBC interview, I was like "it's so funny cause it's just like when you guys are always interrupting me when I'm working" and they all  gave me the "???? Face" like, "Who us?? We don't knock down books and stuff"
3. I stepped exactly ZERO parts of my person out into the snow. #hesable #remote
4. No. 
5. Redeemer and Allyson calling to sing happy birthday to miss 11 year old thang. They were laughing and happy and I love them so.
 6. So we are going on trip soon. Of course, I  feel approximately 18 billion different kinds of stressed out about it. It's going to be fine.
7. Today was a rough-ish day. I'll try for less rough tomorrow. You too, ok?

SistaTV Loves you, laughing with my kids, and  deep breathing. #goodnight
