Here is my rubber plant I have had forever.
Here is my spider plant hanging in front of my sliding glass doors. It attacks you every time you try to go out back!
Here is a plant I saved from being thrown out. I am not sure what it is. I need to plant it in a pot.
Here is my little jungle area. There is another spider plant, 2 jade plants and my herbs that won't grow right. Probably because I am not doing something right!
Here are the herbs. Basil, chives, parsley and sage is in the little one.
Here is another plant I rescued. Don't know what this one is either.
Close up of the leaves.
Another spider plant in the kitchen.
Now we are headed outside.
Here is the front of my building with my hanging flower baskets.
My flowers under my tree in front.
My flower garden in front of my kitchen window.
My hanging plants. There are 2 strawberry plants and 2 cherry tomato plants. They are doing really well hanging upside down!
My other tomato plant.
My red rose bush and some kind of flower. I forget what it is called.
Here it is.
Here is my little garden on the side of the building.
We have green beans, eggplant, broccoli, hot red peppers and sweet peppers. I think that's it. Well, that's it for my garden.

And no, he isn't dead in this picture. That is how they sleep! LOL, needed to add some humor to this post!
Now, how to tell Briana when she comes home tomorrow is a problem. Any suggestions?

I have treid everything that I know of to stop her from doing this. Apparently, according to her behavior specialist, it is due to her autism. She needs to have her stuff around her. It comforts her. It gives me anxity attacks! And as a matter of fact, I do own Toys R us! Have you ever seen so many toys? And they are all hers! You don't want to see what's in her room! LOL

Ok, so I have been tagged with this award. I have to tell 10 honest things about myself and then tag 7 other bloggers. But you all have been tagged already so I will skip that part. Wow, this is not going to be easy for me as I am a very private person.
1. I had my oldest when I had just turned 18. His biological sperm donor didn't want him. My mom wanted me to abort and threw me out because I wouldn't. So, it was just him and I growing up together.
2. I am actually grateful for the events of #2 because I was headed down a very dangerous road before conceiving him.
3.I have always just wanted to be a wife and mother. I enjoy cooking, cleaning and being with the kids all day. I should have been born a long time ago!
4.I was married to a great guy. Just not the right man for me. I tried to make it work. I begged him to go to the marriage encounter weekend things at our parish. I read every book I could about marriage, relationships, etc. Nothing worked. He failed to see any problems in our marriage.
5. I am the one that left the marriage. I hurt him greatly. More so then I knew at the time and just recently found out. I still feel the guilt and remorse to this day, 10 years later.
6.I then was smart enough to get involved with someone who I thought was my soulmate. I endured 7 years of emotional, verbal, physical and sexual abuse with said soulmate. I believe it was kharma getting me back for #5.
7.My children are my world and even though being a single parent is challenging, I love it. That said, there are days when I honestly feeling like running away!
8.I can come to your home and clean it perfectly. I can also organize everything in it. I used to be a house manager for a very prominent family in Society Hill in Philadelphia. However, my house is a mess and so unorganized. Oh well!
9.The majority of my friends are male. I have a hard time relating to other women, at least IRL.
10. I think I am ready to start dating. I'm not sure. The idea scares the crap out of me and with good reason. I am not sure if I am ready to trust someone with my heart again.
Ok, there are my 10 honest things about me. I know I am going to regret this later on...LOL
