Getting to Know Me via Text... REALLY!

Okay, don't get me wrong, I like to text just as much as the next social butterfly... But what is up with men texting women to get to know them?

I met a gentleman last evening, while I was out running an errand. He asked if he could have my number, and he seemed nice enough, so I gave it to him. He texted me an hour later asking for a picture. I thought "no big deal, my pictures are all over Facebook, Instagram and Twitter", so I sent it to him. He has been texting me since we met. I finally stopped responding to him!

What 39 year old man uses text messaging to get to know a woman they are interested in!?! Oh that's right the other gentleman that I am causal friends with, that's in his 40's, and he likes to text too... I am about to stop talking to both of them to be honest with you!

I am on a key board all day at work, and then I'm on my laptop when I come home in the evening working my business, who wants to sit and text all day! Give me a break! What has happened to the intimacy of a telephone conversation? We almost don't know what each other sounds like anymore because everything spoken is now via text message...

When someone says "Talk to you later", don't they really mean "Text you later"? Because you haven't talked to me yet! To me texting should be done in those situations where you really can't talk at that moment. But, not if you are a man, and you are sitting at home chilling, and trying to text me all night... Like Tamara says "Gettcha Life!!!".

Especially, you are looking to get to know me? It makes me wonder what these men have to hid. Is there a wife/girlfriend/boyfriend in the house? Hmmmm!! I mean really!! What's up?? LOL!! I know, I got you with the whole "boyfriend" thing, but you just don't know these days. What are people trying to hide. And since when did it become okay to accept bare minimums from men?

I remember I was getting so excited about this guy I was talking to, and every time my phone would ding, I was hoping it was a text message from him... Really Kellee!?! I mean WHO DOES THAT!?! Kellee, that's who. LOL! And when it wasn't him, I would get so irritated with whoever it was. Like it was their fault that my boo wasn't texting me... LOL! Thank You Lord for maturing me!

Moral of this story is... Men, pick up the phone and call the lady you are interested in... Ladies, make these men give you what you want, and stop settling for a text...

Ps: Both of the above men I was talking about are Caucasian.. You see, men being lazy comes in ALL races! LOL!

 Be Good.. Live Life.. And Above all else... Be Unusual!

Why Do Skinny Women Get More Respect...

Okay, let me first start off by saying, I do not think like Monique. I love skinny women. I aspire to be skinny again one day. Who am I kidding, I wasn't skinny... LOL! I was a size 8, and that was comfortable to me. And being a size 14 now, I would pay good money to be a size 8 again. I would probably commit a crime, to be a size 8 again. Kidding, I wouldn't commit a crime.. Or would I.. Hmmmmm :)

Anywho, what brought this on was, my calendar is getting super busy... I'm being pulled into more, and doing more with my business. And my first thought was "I need to drop 50lbs immediately!". What brought that thought on!?! I'll tell you what, I know that smaller women are more respected. People look at skinny women differently in the corporate world.

And, I work to hard, not to be respected. There is more to me than my size, but I don't want people to tune me out, before I even get started. Now, I am secure in myself... Let's NOT get that t…

One Year of Prep - Day Five

Good Evening Peeps,

Wow, has it been five days already? I kind of had a rough weekend you guys. I have been eating everything in sight. I had an extremely boring weekend, and apparently that's all I can think to do. :-(

I didn't have much going on this weekend; I had a meeting yesterday morning which didn't last very long. And the remainder of the day I laid in bed watching television and eating. Who does that!?! Oh, I do.. That's who!

I had great intentions, I just didn't follow through. So, losing weight is one of my goals this year. I would like to lose about 70lbs. So starting tomorrow, I am making a commitment to myself, all of you, and God to only eat when I am physically hungry.

If I don't get this eating thing under control now, I am going to be 300lbs before I know it. No offense to anyone reading this, and weighs that much. But for me and my life, the life God called me to live - being that big is a no go.

I actually want to be skinny. About 135lbs…

Start Where You Find Yourself

"When he came to his senses, he said, 'how many of my father's hired men have food to spare, and here I am starving to death"! (Luke 15:17)

How many of us need to do as the prodigal son did, and come to our senses? How many of us are going day by day, living "prodigal lives"? Here is some definitions of a Prodigal Life:
Living excessivelyWastefulCostly RecklessLacking cautionThoughtless You may ask, what does a prodigal life have to with the title of today's blog. EVERYTHING!! You have to know where you are, before you can start where you find yourself. Just as this son began to realize where he was, we have to do the same thing. He realized that he was in a pig pen starving to death, because of his prodigal living, and he came to his senses, and started where he found himself.
He had to hit the reset button on his life, but, he had to come to his senses first. And that's what we have to do, when we find ourselves in prodigal living. We have to hit …
