Have a Fabulous Monday from a Fabulous Mama!

chaotic day

It’s a fabulous Monday and I am apparently a Fabulous Mama!

Many months ago I programmed the being on my phone known as Suri to call me Fabulous Mama. It was in a weak moment of entertainment. I randomly ask Suri for information and most often for directions. Suri’s voice is that of a British dude, again for my entertainment. The device may be smarter than me but I can enjoy some of the perks!

This past weekend the boy and I were out with friends and he got my phone and started asking it random questions. Seeing as how he was saying “doesn’t mommy have a cute booty butt?” and “where are the booty butts here?” Suri did not recognize him and asked him “Are you ok Fabulous Mama?” Needless to say this set off much laughter and amusement with our little group in the local pizzeria and went on into the rest of the evening.

As I was tucking the boy into bed he said, “You know, My lady, that you are My Fabulous Mama! Did you know? Did you know?! You are and Suri said what I already knewed!”

That is all the affirmation I need to know that this will be a fabulously wonderful week!

Embrace the chaos and keep hope alive!!!



Let’s do this Monday and in context please!

monday 2016

Welcome to the first Monday of 2016!

We are officially here and all up into the New Year whether we want to or not!

Lately I have been noticing more and more people taking things out of context. This is not only with me but with others as well.

People can take a portion out of a book, a conversation, an article and twist it to try and make their point. Often people take context out of the Bible to bolster their beliefs and feelings. This is something that I see far too often and is extremely frustrating to deal with.

What I don’t understand is when you go back and read over, replay or try to connect with this person regarding said topic, they attempt to stand their ground when it is clear as mud that said topic was taken out of context.

In fact, it can make things more confusing and convoluted by taking something out of context yet some people find it easier to use for manipulation or to try and control a situation.

It’s interesting to note that, for the majority of situations, when you confront a person whose needs are more about deceit and ill gain, that they will argue to the end of time about how they are right and you are wrong.

The other folks, me included, once realized something was taken out of context, will re-evaluate the information and, for the most part, admit it does alter the meaning and the message. We then work to communicate on making sure the matter is cleared up.

I try to always take the time to make sure the information is all of the facts or just portion of the facts. Whether it be regarding work, relationships or general situations, I do my best to understand the full scope of what is being said or going on. Too many mistakes can be made from jumping to conclusion or over-reacting.

Monday’s can be a challenge as it is.

How about we all try to just get through this day without pulling a bunch of crap out of context? How about we work to be a bit nicer than normal because it’s the first Monday of the New Year and why not set the pace on a positive step?

Maybe it will start a habit of being nicer on Mondays. Couldn’t hurt!

monday not bad

I hope you all have a fabulous Monday!

Keep Hope Alive!



It’s the last Monday of 2015 so make it fabulous

 last mon of year

It’s the Monday after Christmas!

For me, it’s another work day but I love my job so I hope that it will be fabulous!

I hope that everyone reading this post, all 33 of you, have a fabulous Monday!

I hope you go forth for the rest of the week and it is wonderful!

I mean at the end of the week we start a whole new year so that makes today the last Monday of 2015 and my last Monday post for the year.

I can’t believe it’s been a bit over 7 months since I started my blog. And now I am going into a whole new year with my blogging. I still can’t believe I am still going strong. It is hard at times but it has been so very worth it.

I mean we are at the tail end of 2015. This is the time we are supposed to be making resolutions and plans for the upcoming year.

For me, I just want to make it another day, learning, loving and living my life.

So here’s hope for the last wonderful Monday of 2015!

Keep hope alive!
