Getting off the Hamster Wheel and Moving Towards Halloween


“God will repay each person according to what they have done.” Romans 2:6

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9

I’ve decided to concentrate on good and positive things instead of the drama I’ve been going through for over two years. There is very little I can do with my current situation concerning FMLA and Guardianship for Stephen. Basically the Human Resources person has had me jumping through hoops like a trained monkey. Sometimes I feel like I’m on a not so Merry-Go-Round which speeds up when it gets to the brass ring with me nearly falling on my face trying to catch the distant prize.

I do Thank my DC 37 Union Reps for standing by my side during this extremely stressful time of my life.

I dedicate this song to evil selfish wicked H.R. (Human Resources staff). Be aware that H.R. is only there to protect the organization. The needs of the institution will always come before the needs of the employees.

More or less I’m beating my head against a brick wall. In order not to wind up in the hospital again (I spent two weeks in the psych ward of Kings County Hospital for nervous exhaustion. Not a good way to spend Palm Sunday and Easter.) I realize I have to stop allowing my job to make a complete fool out of me.  Now I can laugh somewhat at my former incarceration in the mental ward but while I was in the I was in complete fear for my life and was glad to get out. After they shove enough anti-psychotic drugs down your gullet life may not be beautiful but the doctors have succeeded in making you submissive and robotic.

Yes there is always hope, probably false hope but all that’s done is cause me daily stomachaches, chronic insomnia and tears. Best to lower my expectations that way I won’t be hurt or disappointed.

Now for the Happy Stuff

Okay now that’s out of the way onto Halloween.  In this post I’ll be including photos from past Halloweens. One year Stephen won 1st Prize for best costume. He was dressed as a Scarecrow. The only year Halloween came to an abrupt stop was 2012 when Hurricane Sandy devastated the states of New York and New Jersey.

This year Stephen is going to be Robin Hood. Yes folks a Black Robin Hood. Robin Hood got Soul!!  LOL!!  And I will be a Huntress!!  I will be posting this years Halloween costumes for 2015 in next weekend’s Blog Post!

Werewolves Of London

A few years ago I dated a guy who could have passed for a Werewolf. This guy had hair growing out of his back!! In fact he had everywhere except on his head where he was going bald!! Go Figure. Anyway he was a nice guy but too hirsute for me.

When this movie came out I actually stood on line for over an hour to get my album signed by Ray Parker Jr.  That brother was so fine that when I finally got to the front and he asked me my name I nearly forgot!! I would not mind at all if I woke up one morning and Ray was in my bed!  LOL!!

    1. If all goes well March 2018 I’m on schedule to retire. Not much longer to suffer. Companies mistreat their employees because they know they can without consequences. Plus our economy is still down and there are no jobs for folks over 50 so it’s best to hang onto what you have. Suck it up and Keep it Moving.

  1. OMG! Another Black Halloween fan!!!!
    We are the Halloween people in this camp!
    Are we long lost twins? It’s so hard to find sistas that love Halloween as much as I do so I am sorry if I seem overly excited!
    Anyway! Take care and I hope that everything eventually worked out in your favor.

    1. I Love Halloween. It is my favorite Holiday next to Thanksgiving. My brother Stephen has been dressing up for years so a few years ago I decided to get into the act. I’ve been Cat Woman, Tiger Woman, a Black Panther and last year DeBorah the Huntress. Halloween is a holiday where you can really explore your imagination.

      1. Exactly! I lucked up because I have children with huge age differences. They are 11 years apart so that kept me trick or treating for 20 years! LOL!
