Happy Monday Morning...

Happy Monday Morning...

Yeah, yeah... I am NOT excited.

It is all gloomy outside looking like it will storm any minute. It's that good sleeping or good twerking kind of weather! LOL

The current temperature is 71 degrees in my beloved ATL and it will reach a high of 81 degrees today.

That's cool babes! Better than this 100 degree weather we've been having!!

So I hope you enjoyed your 4th of July weekend.

Tell me something: why do 3 day weekends go by so doggone FAST!?


And it isn't like I had a activity filled weekend...

My 4th of July weekend was




I didn't even leave the house this weekend.

(Now that's what I call slow).

I hung around the house. Period.

And I LOVED-ED it!!!

Sometimes, I need that. Sure, I was invited different places, but I simply wanted to chill...

I watched a lot of television... and a lot of news...

There were some big stories...

Number 1: What's up with Sarah Palin? Chick just up and quit. And that speech she gave was a rambling mess. Made me wonder what she was smoking. I thought she was a maverick. Apparently not!

Number 2. RIP Eric McNair. But uh...what was up with the McNair situation? Is it just me or do you get the vibe that he and his woman on the side got into a fight and a murder-suicide went down?

I am hoping it wasn't a situation where your mess finally caught up with you... That ain't important right now. A wife and 4 sons are left behind. Their lives are forever changed. Sigh.

As you can see, I haven't been posting.

This is because I posted EVERYDAY last month.

Don't expect such out of me anymore!!!

Well, unless it is short. And you know how longwinded we are here at the House of LadyLee.

Short is NOT in my vocabulary.

Anyway, this is Quarterly Assessment time... a time where I look at the happenings in my life over the last 3 months that affected me in someway or another.

The 2nd quarter wasn't as earth shatteringly dark as the 1st quarter.

It was very quiet in comparison. That's what I like.

Worst thing I happened: My bookclub broke up. I want to talk about that without verbally shanking negroes. Haven't quite figured out how to do that.

I paid off a major debt. My thoughts about my finances are so-so, and I want to talk about that.

I became vegetarian, and have been vegetarian for 35 days. This isn't really going to mean much to me until the 100 day mark, because I could just slip and chow down on whole bowl of chittlins and a rack of baby back ribs at any moment, lol, but I wanted to discuss it nevertheless...

Plus a host of other interesting things are always going on with me.

You know how we do at the House of LadyLee.

Smurfiness, with a side order of food for thought.

So with that... you all be sure to make it a great week!

Do it big on purpose!


  1. It was a nice, slow weekend over at the House of Hassan as well.

    Congrats on 35 days. I'm getting it started this week.

    I miss Atlanta

  2. Englighten me: what are the benefits of being a vegetarian and did you make this decision based on health reasons?

  3. @That Original Oldboy Hassan...

    Man, why am I the only one of the Hassan family urban renewal plan? Ya'll better get on the wagon, lol. And until then, I will hold down the fort, lol...

    We miss you and Oldgirl too! I can't believe ya'll ate ALL the cookies I baked for you. YIKES!!

    @That Original Oldgirl Chele... There's a post coming up on that, my dear! And I can make it as detailed as you want it to be.

  4. Chilling is THE absolute bestest!!! I'm half chillin' today. Got a soccer game to attend this evening. It's supposed to storm a little later so it might get cancelled and I would so not be upset LOL!!!

  5. Happy Monday Evening now! The Palin issue is ridiculous. I hope she doesn't continue to embarass herself and her family by trying to run in 2012...guess we'll find out next year when all the republican voltures come out to play.

    McNair...all I can do is smh.

    Saturday, the holiday was an easy day. I stayed home to clean the living room -- dust, vacuum and wash the floors. Sunday was selling on Craigslist with a delivery, errands, the library, and Chuck E. Cheese. This is why Monday is usually my Sunday! ;)

    I'm looking forward to reading all the things you want to talk about.

    I have no words for the Steve McNair situation. Sad all the way around.

  8. I'm with Chele and TOSG. I want to know about the vegetarian thing and I'm looking forward to the things you want to talk about.

    My 4th was fun, fun, fun! I wanted it to be, because I haven't done anything for any holiday since I've been here.

    Sarah Pailin is a quitter, so maybe Alaska is better off. She needs to follow through on ish. She wanted to pull out of the race for VP, so hell, I'm not surprised about her decision to step down as governor.

    That McNair situation is a shame. I heard his wife didn't know he was having an affair until they aired it on the news that ole girl was his "girlfriend." SMH


Slap the *crickets* out the way, kindly step up to the mike, and SAY something!!
