I can’t believe this year is almost gone. It’s hot and humid as hell in New Orleans. I don’t know how folks who aren’t used to this kind of heat are gonna walk from the Convention Center to the Superdome this week (Essence Festival).
Even though my birthday is in a few days, I still haven’t figured out anything to do.
I wanted to go to Vegas, but it’s hotter there than it is here so, we’re gonna wait until the fall to go.
Is it weird that I want to see Joan Rivers if she’s out there? I’ve always loved Joan Rivers.
Back to the birthday thing.
I think I’m just gonna stay home and do a quiet celebration here.
Maybe get into some of that Essence Fest hoopla,
if it isn’t too hot for me.
Does anyone else make a great Bananas Foster?
I share my birthday with my daughter so, we’ll probably do something together,
before she ditches me for her friends.
Whatever I decide to do, I’ll do a post on it.
I did take time off from the jobs. I’m gonna enjoy almost two weeks away from the craziness of nursing.
That’s a gift in and of itself.
In other news, my phone broke on me.
It froze up and I had to break down and get a new one.
I’m pissed because, all of my festival photos were on that phone.
I’m not a person who likes to upgrade. My daughter literally took my dinosaur phone away from me and upgraded me to the Galaxy Prevail last year and I was still behind the times.
I shocked the hell out of everyone and got the Galaxy S4.
The way I figured it is, I may as well go all out because, I don’t plan on upgrading for a looonng time.
I can’t lie, I love this phone!
It’s really gonna come in handy during carnival.
Speaking of which,
Two of my good friends just received invitations to become riding members of Nyx!
I am so excited for them! !Hopefully, we’ll all be on the same float. It’s really gonna be fun now!
I had to give up running long distances and I’m really sad about that. My knees just can’t take the pounding. I was just getting to the point where I could run a mile nonstop,but my knees are taking a beating so, I’m giving up the ghost on long distances.
I find that, I don’t have a problem with short distances so, I’m gonna listen to my body.
I’m still going to enter 5K races because I walk pretty fast and if there’s a time restriction, I’ll still be good.
I’m doing a giveaway!
See how I snuck that in there.
