the funny emergency

Posted in Baltimore, blessings, decisions, FOOD!!, Marine Corps., phunni moments, the [[OUTZZ]] of my life... by Tanae' A. on December 24, 2008

so…ii like finally have time to actually sit down in front of a computer so im like happy go lucky. ii have been waiting to write a post about this for a few days now and really did not feel like using my phone to do is so now you all can enjoy the funniness with me. as you all know, my sister graduated boot camp two weeks after me. ii dreaded taking the long trip back to the Island but ii promised my senior drill instructor that ii would go so me, mommy, bestie and uncle hopped in the truck for the ten hour drive back to Parris Island. the drive there was cool. we were all on chills. by the time we got there ii began to dread the L O N G trip back but ii made it my business to enjoy my second visit to the island. the weather was dead nice so the entire two days went smoothly. after MY graduation ii had the priviledge of going to Golden Corale where the Marines eat free and ii was like so super excited about that. by me being the wonderful, concerned, hearty sister that ii am ii suggested that we all go back after her ceremony but everyone was so anxious to get back on the road so my idea was flushed down the drain. [[now one may think that Golden Corale has nothing at all to do with an emergency since we did not go but this my friends is the most crucial piece of information in this story. so keep in the membrane that we DID NOT go to Golden Corale to eat dinner after ii suggested it about one hundred times]] although ii was hungry ii decided not to put up a fight because, after all, this was Shays day and not mine so we were going to go along with whatever she wanted to do. ii put a smile on my face and got ready for the ride home. ii figured since ii couldnt eat right then ii would snack on some chips in the process. we get on the road and we are about a good fifteen minutes from the Island. all of a sudden ii get this pain in my back and in my chest. ii couldnt breathe or nothing. please.pull.over.right.now. about ten minutes later im on the side of the road laying on a blanket cause it hurts to much to stand up, no shoes on cause we are about to ride for ten hours and just looking jacked up. mommy and uncle are scared shitless and the only thing they know how to do is call 9-1-1. yall, ii thought ii was going to die that day. we get in the ambulance and by the time we get to the hospital the pain has subsided a little bit but they still want to run tests or whatever. so we get there and they check everything and give me this medication to take. about twenty minutes after we get to the hospital we are discharged and my diag-nonsense is acid reflex. lol. they gave me some medication to take when ii eat greasy foods and stuff but other than that ii would survive. NOW. although this story is quite funny…ii have a HUGE chip on my shoulder. yes. ii am holding a grudge. towards who, might you ask. MOMMY, UNCLE, SHAY && BESTIE. if we would have stopped at Golden Corale to get a full five course meal and then got on the road then ii would not have had to cure my hunger with utz sour cream and onion chips. if ii would not have had to eat chips then ii would not have had a sudden case of acid reflex. if ii had not had the sudden case of acid reflex we would not have had to hold off our drive home for an entire hour. BUT sense we ended up having an hour delay in our schedule anyway…we would have been better off just going to effin golden corale. does everyone see how that one little minor decision has negatively effected the rest of my life?? lol. but seriously…bet ya next time im hungry we’ll stop to eat. but thank Jesus that it was only acid reflex and thank Him even more that the rush to the hospital, the twenty minutes in the ER and the prescription that they shoved in my face all came up to zero dollars. uugghh. must love free medical and dental!!!

second best

Posted in decisions, FOOD!!, friends, [[im oh so o8]] by Tanae' A. on June 19, 2008
everyone knows how ii feel about Papa Johns… its my all time favorite pizza EVER. get me some and ill love you for life.honestly. so.of course no one can ever top them but someone was kinda close last night. guess who?? none other than Pizza Johns on Back River Neck. now.understand.this is nothing new at all. ii have always liked their pizza but. for some reason last night it was just extra extra good. perhaps it was the fact that ii was dying of starvation or maybe even the fact that ii went with the most important people. or maybe just because ii haven’t been in like forever. but whatever the reason.the pizza was ssoo good. of course they could never top Papa Johns but they can surely be second best.

.just.so.tired.

Posted in choir, church, dancing, FOOD!!, friends, getaway, help me!!, im so over it, prayer, Shiloh, tired, [[o8 aint 4 me]] by Tanae' A. on April 22, 2008
im tired yall. really tired. just of the day to day ritual. tired of the everyday people, the everyday headache…the everyday bullshit. tired. tired of trying, tired of helping, tired of being used. tired. just. plain. old. tired. no if ands buts on the end of it…maybe a yarn or two.
yesterday i had to cut off a real cool chick cause being friends with her was keeping me tied to someone else that i didnt want to continue being stuck to in any kind of way. we talked about it and she was cool with it, understood the situation and after that i felt free to walk away. im no longer tied to someone and now that chapter is over with. thank God.
now. i tried the same thing with JHW II but there is no way to be free from that. everywhere i turn there is some way that i am connected to him. i mean, we go to the same church for Christ’s sake and even tho he is hardly ever there….uummm HELLO do you not see his fam and friends surrounding me?? thats a book that has no ending so i guess ill be stuck to him forever…its draining.
i call myself trying to be a friend. i try to be nice, i really do. i let someone who called me their best friend borrow money. the first time i aint think twice about it. she was about to start a new job and just needed gas money. of course ima give it to her especially since she gave me a ride home that day. she claimed she was going to give it back to me and i wasn’t really worried about it… what is ten dollars?? nothing. so two weeks later she had lost that job and was about to start a new job [[did i mention that this chick cant keep a job to save her life??]] and of course was broke and needed money. so, after thinking about i figured id give her some money cause at least she is TRYING to get a job and do something positive. mind you, this wasnt no chumo  change…this was some serious dough, no joke. so, about a week later she loses that job, outrageous yes. so i decides im not going to say anything about the money for a minute cause she needed a chance to get back on her feet. so about three weeks later i asked her when she would have the money and told her i wasnt expecting it all at once. she says that she would have it all on the following friday. by the time the next wednesday came she asked me if she could wait two weeks til the 26th. of course, i said yeah. at least she came at me and asked if i could hold out and i really didnt even need the money. so the 26th rolls around and you would think that she would call me, txt me, im me, hit me up on the space…something. nope. didnt hear from this chick at all. so two days later she texted my phone like she aint owe me nothing…just talking bout nothing. ok, wait a minute, something aint right. i let her go a week just to see if she would mention the money at all. nope. silence. no money talk round here. so by that point i was irritated…not even mad fa’real. i called her and asked when she was going to have the money and after that she been ducking me out ever since. not answering my phone calls or nothing. she was supposed to bring it last week but of course something happened and two days later she magically lost her bank card. so you know what i did?? i went to every single bank website that i could think of and checked to see how long it takes to send a new bank card thru the mail. THE LONGEST THAT IT TAKES TO GET A NEW BANK CARD IS THREE TO FIVE BUSINESS DAYS. ok, she lost the card on saturday so that means it should be in the mail by monday morning and at her house by wednesday or friday.  that means, ill be knocking at her door on saturday evening and if my money aint in my hand my fist will be in her face. sorry but im tired.
pastor’s anniversary is in two weeks. am i excited?? yes and no. excited because first…FREE DINNER!!! i know, i know, the first reason should be because i just love my pastor so much [[which i do]] but…i love food just so much more and you know FREE food is the best food ever invented. so second reason i am excited is because i love my bishop oh so much. third reason…we have three wonderful great menses of GOD preaching and i know that it is going to be a holy ghost filled day. reasons why i am not excited…first, three services, from 7:30 am to around 6:30 pm i will be in Shiloh, around church going people and in church clothes that i do not want to be in for more than two hours max. reason number two, i just got a text message two minutes ago saying that ALL choirs must sing. that means, i have to go to rehearsal and on top of that i have to dance. singing and dancing all day long is not going to work for me so i am going to go to both rehearsals and then decide which one i want to be bothered with because the changing and stresses of both will not be working. reason number three… who in their right mind decided that it was ok to tell Tanae’ that pastors anniversary was coming up two weeks before it comes…ok, allow me to get my head together please. thank you.
im tired. just tired and worn out. tired. i just want to go somewhere far far away and sleep for two days straight and pray for eternity and then come back to try it again. sometimes we just need to get away from the world and just spend some alone time with us and God… until i get to get away ill just be tired and hopefully you will keep praying.

i dont think i can do this…

Posted in dancing, FOOD!!, health by Tanae' A. on February 4, 2008
i dont know who i think im fooling but this is no longer a joke. after dancing at two services yesterday and getting a good nights sleep…i woke up this morning with back pains, knee pains, neck pains…just all kinds of pains. pains so bad i had to catch the elevator instead of walking up the two flights of steps to my office. then i have to turn around and go to dance practice tonight… i dont think i can do this, like really. maybe im getting old or something but im tired. i walked two blocks today and was out of breath… something aint right.
somedays i feel like im dying…or somewhere close to it. my chest hurts more than it should. i dont breath too well most days. something inside is hurting but i dont know if its my kidney or what. im going to the doctors soon so i guess time will tell but i know that i am kinda not in good health. im drinking water and eating right from now on cause i cant stand the thought of not being healthy. so i guess that means no more carryout. no more pork from apple trees and def. no more mcdonalds and cheese steaks and fried chicken. i like my lil eff’d up life so i aint trying to go to glory no time soon, especially not from eating a lil too much grease in the morning. keep me in prayer cause i think im a lil too young to be having all these pains… and if you dont see me third sunday dancing like im posed to, that means i quit from exhaustion lolzz…

PizzaMia

Posted in FOOD!!, friends, girls night, good times, people I love, Shink, weekend by Tanae' A. on January 29, 2008
Friday night my plans were crushed because my ride bailed on me last minute so instead of going to Fourth Friday Fundamentals we decided to go to Pizza Hut. We get here and Shay decides that she wants bread sticks and pizza because she’s a fatty. But, we called ourselves saving money and so we took advantage of the Pizza Mia deal where you get three pizzas for fifteen bucks. Mind you, it was only three of us there and after Shay forced us to eat all the bread sticks we really didnt want any pizza. So now we have one and a half pizzas on my dining room table that are probably going to go to waste because by now the entire world is tired of eating our pizzas that we insisted on buying. But I just have some proof and evidence that all my friends are fatties and here it is for all the world to see…fatt-asses-ew1.jpgpizza-pizza.jpg

I cant stand the rain…

Posted in clothes, FOOD!!, morning, prayer, work by Tanae' A. on August 9, 2007

THANK JESUS FOR STOPPING THE RAIN!!

Let me tell you all about the great and lovely day I was having today. I woke up this morning, knowing fully well what I was going to put on even tho I hadn’t picked it out. I could not find the pants that were a part of my original plan so I had to rearrange my entire wardrobe which was not a huge problem. I got to play with my Bing for about a half hour this morning [this is something that I never ever get to do] and because of that, I ended up rushing to get back upstairs to get dressed. But on my way up from the basement I realized that I was starving and so I dropped by the kitchen to get myself a quick bite to eat… what was it?? Some tuna crackers that I made last night. hhmmm good. Then after rushing to get my other pants out of the closet I had to hurry up and plug up the iron and then, all of a sudden, I had the sudden urge to… HEAR SOME TYE TRIBBETT. So I run into my room to locate this cd that I have not seen in months and about 15 min later I find it stuck between my dvd collection. So I hit play and continue on trying to get dressed before my mom got home. I plug up the iron, clean up my room and then I remember that I didn’t do my hair like I was supposed to do last night. So I take another 20 min. to loccate all of my hair products and do my hair and then I realize that I still have to go to the store to break the 20 that I had in pocket and I silently curse myself for spending my last one dollar bill when I knew I would need it for  the bus. I go downstairs, brush my teeth, go back up stairs to get my phone, go back downstairs, go out the door, then go back upstairs to get the twenty that I needed to break to get on the bus. I left out of the house happy [seems like I’m always happier when I rush to get things done]. I ran across the street to get change and I waited patiently for about 4 1/2 minutes until the bus arrived.

I got to work at a reasonable time and soon as I stepped foot in the door, my manager aske me in her nicest voice possible if I could please walk ALL THE WAY TO THE OTHER COURTHOUSE TO DROP OFF SOME PAPERS IN THE FIVE HUNDRED DEGREE HEAT!!! B Y M Y S E L F!!! Of course, I said yes. I walked, and walked, and walked, and nearly died, and walked, and walked, and nearly passed out, and I walked and walked some more. FINALLY I reached these big beautiful double doors and I climbed the 200 steps to get to the entrance I then I walked up the 800 steps to get to this lady’s office and then I walked ALL THE WAY BACK IN THE EIGHT HUNDRED AND THIRTY TWO DEGREE HEAT… and if I ever complained about it being cold in my office, I take it back because when I got back I was thanking God for air like you would not believe!! Finally, I was able to sit in my chair and get some work done at my own leisure. I listened to some music and laughed with my co-workers and even danced with my manager to some Lenny Williams!! LoL!!

And then, lunch hour came. And usually I am the most excited about lunch hour. But someone spoke the two most dreadful words and I no longer felt hungry… she said “It’s raining”. LORD WHY!?!?!? So I stood at the door attempting to figure out how I was going to run around the corner to the carryout place THAT DOES NOT DELIVER without getting wet. And after about a whole hour of standing there I realized that there was no way I was going to go out there in that treacherous weather. Finally, I ran into someone who had an umbrella and I asked with my best puppy dog face if I could pretty please use his umbrella and he told me yes. I walked to Jake’s got my chicken and had a huge smile when I got back completely dry!! I think that now the rain has stopped and I must thank God in advance for looking out for me and stopping this madness before I walk out the door to leave. I dont get to go straight home and that is even more reason for me that be thankful cause He knows I do not want to walk around the mall in wet soggy clothes. So today, even tho the weather put a small tiny little hex in my lunch hour… I PRAISE GOD BECAUSE IT WILL NOT RUIN THE REST OF MY DAY.

another monday post

It’s Monday!!! and yet again I am telling you all about my weekend. Three days spent doing nothing too important. Time spent with my besties. Hours that went by way to fast. So what did I do this weekend??

Well Friday was a very interesting day. Me, Jaz, Shay, Bry, and Smurph all got together to eat some crabs on Jaz’s back porch and Jess even came down for a while. We laughed and geeked and played cards and monopoly and did absolutely nothing til about 4:30 in the morning. I think we had about 40 conversations about nothing in particular and had about 75 debates that got no where but it was fun. By 5:00 Jess and Smurph were gone and everybody else turned over to go to sleep.

We all woke up around 9:30 and went to McDonalds to get some food. We spent about 6 hours taking out Chelly’s hair and listening to music and then we finally decided to get some more crabs around 5:oo. We played more monopoly [i won!!] and around 10 we all went to our homes to prepare for church on Sunday morning.

Church was good. India and the baby came along. Brandy and Karen even showed up which was good. After service Jaz went to work and we went to Olive Garden with Mommy, India and Lil Eric. The food was good but none of could eat it all. We went  home and took naps then me and Shay got up to watch my new favorite tv show… Side Order of Life..on Lifetime.

I woke up late and extremely tired this morning. I rushed out of the house and enjoyed a very long ride to work. I got to work on time and right now I am freezing cold cause this air is blazing. I will save tons of money today because I didn’t eat breakfast and I brought my own lunch from home…

Next Saturday is the Church Wide Picnic and I am so excited so I hope and pray that this week goes very smoothly. And I am really praying that I dont get caught in any of this weeks rain. I hope you all are praying as well. I just put color in my hair and I will be highly upset if it starts running!! LoL!! Please pray!!

A Beautiful Weekend

I woke up on friday morning relieved… it was finally the weekend!! Work was a drag because I was so anxious to just go home. I rushed to the bank in a hurry then ran to WalMart with my mom and sister. Then I had to rush home to change clothes… it was time to hang!! YaY!! We decided to go to Red Lobster and then to the pool hall.. and whatever I had to eat was delicious!! LoL! I los about 40 dollars playing pool but then i got it all back [thank you Lord!] and by 3:30 we were beat and ready to go home. By the time we got home and in the bed it was almost 4:30 and we had to wake up at 7:15 saturday morning. Well morning did come real early but I was working pretty well with my 3 hours of sleep. By the time I got dressed and ready to go it was after 8 and we were late. We made our way down to the church and boarded the van. We were on our way to Sarah’s Hope and I must admit I was not very enthused about going. I know 2 people who were living there for a while and I know that they both put themselves in that situation. Although I felt sorry for their kids I really didnt sympathize with the parents [that I knew] because I know what they did to get to where they were. I guess knowing people who previously lived in the shelter kinda made me look at them all the same. Once we got there we got a tour and we all chose different stations to work at. Once I got there and really saw them all lying there on that floor in one room I guess I kinda changed my view of them. I sympathized with them cause thats the kinda thing I wouldnt want anybody to have to go through, but at the same time… I didnt walk out of there feeling as sympathetic. I really enjoyed myself there. I loved helping them out and really seeing how they live everyday. It made me kinda think that anything can happen at any time and leave you with nothing. I didnt know their stories or what happened to have them there but I knew that right then and there they were lacking something that I had and take for granted everyday. But at the same time, apart of me was a little upset because of the reaction that we got from most of the people there. They were rude, picky, and unappreciative and I feel like when somebody is doing something for you that they dont have to do you can at least act like you a little happy about it. I could’ve been in my bed sleep half the morning but I chose to help them and only a handful were really grateful… because of that handful I would have no problem going back. Even tho I felt like some of them were rude I walked out of there happy because I did something to help somebody and you cant put a price on that. Around one we prayed and made our way back home. After we got back everyone left and me, Shay, Jaz, B, and Ness all went out for the day. We decided to go out to eat but Ness had to get her hair did first!! LoL!! We went to this place called CJ’s around 5:30… they had these crabs that were sooo good!! Then we went to White Marsh to pick something up and was in the house by around 9. I was dogg tired! Around 11 I hit the bed and woke up bright and early in time for early morning service. I probably one of the best palm sundays that i have EVER had!! 8:00 service was OFF THE HOOK and so was 11:00 service and I was churchin all day after that. We decided to go to Red Lobster’s again with the good folks from City of Refuge… and we had a BLAST!! We got in the house around 7 and I was able to be in the bed by 9… thank God!! I was a little tired this morning but I slept so good last night that it didnt even matter. On this monday morning I feel so refreshed and read to get thru this week… And I’m thanking Jesus for conquering death, hell, and the grave!! Find out how I really feel about “Easter” this year at [prayed up]

B.Blessed
