I’ve Been A Bad, Bad Girl!

No! Not THAT kind of bad! Wrong blog. Lol. I went an entire week without Bodyrocking. A full seven days. I feel aweful! The excuse that I have is not even valid. I say that because working out could have alleviated some of that mess I was going through last week. Let me clue you guys into my week. It…

Day Long Errand Produces Backpack

Well, it wasn’t a complete day but it sure did feel like it. Maybe it was the time that I got started. I did head out towards the mid afternoon. Hmm… Anyway, I went to pick up this gorgeous backpack from my package receiver up north yesterday. It was about a four hour trip. Four hours. The cool thing is…

New Body Wash & Mid Week Surfing

{EAV:5d4e90ee8e3571e7} I took a trip to my not so local Whole Foods store in downtown Silver Spring last week. Picked up this little gem – Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps in Rose. I had been using the Hugo brand in Lavender before this. I wanted to try something new. You know…switch up my products. I do that from time to time.…

High Hopes & Bodyrocking

My day started off with a smile. I had a plan and I was sticking to it. Rise, thank the most high, Bodyrock, and make a very important phone call. That was going to take up most of my morning. I didn’t mind that. As long as I got it done. This phone call that I am referring to is…

Numbing News & Hair Dye

I woke up to a phone call that provided me with really disturbing news. I have been aimlessly walking around in a daze ever since. I haven’t eaten yet. I feel a serious tension headache coming along. I am unable to concentrate on much at the moment. I’m pretty much numb. I will not get into the news that I…

LONG Overdue

As you all know, my car broke down on me. This information is known because I constantly bring it up. Mainly out of frustration. Nostalgia kicks in from time to time. This could be a reason why my car has been sitting in my driveway since the fall. Yes! Just sitting there! SMH. I am a huge advocate of cleaning…

Range Preference & BBQs On My Mind

First of all TGIF! *claps excitedly* My Friday is pretty slow. I had quite a day yesterday. A wonderful day. It kind of wore me out. So I slept in. I finally got around to preparing my breakfast around noon or so. Oatmeal was my breakfast of champions today. The range I cooked it on just happens to be electric.…

Hiding Out

I’m Still Around

I‘ve just been hiding out and keeping quiet for a while. No worries. Nothing bad has happened. No serious turmoil to report. A few down days but that comes with the territory, especially with me. As I’ve stated before, my current situation is way too hard for me to swallow. I have been getting out of the house. Not as…

Lent 2012: Letting Go & Building Confidence

For those of you that do not know, I am a confirmed Catholic. After many years of inner struggle and rebellion, I finally committed to this faith, for my own selfish reasons, in April of 2009. You see, I’m drawn to the patron saints. Other aspects of Catholicism I can do without. I call myself an Eclectic Catholic due to…

I Love Me Some Valentine’s Day

? I do, I do, I do, I do, I DO! ? Mostly, because of the CHOCOLATE! Yup. Never mind the cards, balloons, flowers, and the fancy dinners. Just give me some chocolate and I am a VERY happy lady! See how easy I am? *winks* This time of year the stores are overstocked with chocolate in anticipation of this…

It’s Not As Easy As I Make It Look

The bus driver that brings me home asks me the same question at least once a week. “Why are you always so happy?” I smile at him and simply tell him that I’m always happy. This is so not the case. People who are always happy 100% of the time, 24/7 are on some kind of drugs. They need to…

Issues With Sharing

I was taught from a very young age to share. Whether it be my toys, my food, or my time, I was told it was always a good thing to share. It was polite and the simple act of sharing brought one closer to whom they were sharing with. I find it interesting that I am having some serious issues…

My Fling With The DC Metro

I‘ve had kind of a fling since moving here to DC two years ago. It started off as mere curiosity. It eventually grew into a relationship of convenience. It was an on again, off again sort of thing. Definitely not needed. I already had an ongoing relationship going. I’m not talking about a man. I’m talking about the DC Metro…

Confessions Of A Deal Groupie

Hello, my name is Kionda, and I’m a Deal Groupie! I love, love, LOVE Groupon and LivingSocial deals. They are just so enticing to the eye, and since I was looking to get into the advertised activities anyway, they are light on the wallet. If you ask me I don’t really use them enough. I really don’t. Let me explain.…

Next Up On The Mic

A single chair. In the spotlight. When I look at this I think immediately of a monologue. A wonderful way to get out one’s thoughts, fears, desires, and such. Very theatrical. Often comedic. Not utilized nearly as much. We have vlogging for that these days. For the ones who still prefer the written word there is blogging. I haven’t graced…

Chicken Soup + NyQuil = Unique Craving

Well, it’s not so much a craving but more of a necessity. You see, I’m sick. Yes. Again. It seems like only yesterday when the sickness reared it’s ugly head. In reality some time has passed. For that I’ve been very, very grateful. It looks like this time around I will not be fulfilling any of my cravings. I’ll have…

Loving Mondays

No joke.  I love Mondays.  I’ve learned that my days are what I make them.  I know that I am part of a very small minority but hey, I’m used to that.  Besides I’ve had some pretty crappy days on Friday.  The days of the week are no different in my eye.  So I love Mondays, right?  So why am…

Accurate Symbolism

I snapped this pic on one of my long walks last Tuesday. It was raining pretty hard that day. I didn’t mind at all. Being out and about taking care of various errands kept me upbeat. Plus, it was great exercise. I walked a great deal that day. I captured it in a moment of inspiration. I wanted to mirror…

Let It Flow

The words flowed a bit better on the pages this morning. Sure, there was a little worry, however, it was immediately brushed off by a positive thought and/or a solution. I love it when that happens. My pages were also filled with a few things that I’d like to manifest in the near future. Feeling really good about them. All…
