Wow...been a really long time!

Its been almost a year since I last posted here.� I have been really busy, concentrating on my classes!� But, I am done now!!!!!!� I graduate tomorrow!!!!� Really excited about that and hope to find work fairly soon.

Other than that....awful lot has happened that I would like to document here, like....history has been made!� We now have our first African American President, Barack Obama!!� Pastor is working on getting my daughter's school to include her in on the trip with the chorus to the inauguration in D.C., January 20th, 2009.� It's a big deal and he wants her to experience this historical event.

A couple of other things have happened which I will not mention because it has come to my attention that certain people are reading my journal....and they don't need to know anything about some things!���

Oh yeah, I have, since the last time I posted, Mikki and Vernell got married�on May 17th, the wedding itself turned out nice, yet prior to the wedding, of course there was some DRA-MA!!��Sis. Cynthia S. moved over to become the�President of the Senior Ushers, and referred me,�and I have�been appointed as Junior Usher Advisor at�the church (myself and Donna C.)� Our Pastor�also requested and�appointed me as Class Leader #11 for New!� It's all good though's time!� It's time that�I have a relationship with God, and not just be "a member" of the church.� To be honest, I am struggling a little with it because it is so easy to slip back into those old ways.� Also, Sis. Jackie Y., who is the�Pastor's�assistant (right-hand person)�is looking for assistance with her work in the church, as she is very overloaded, and maybe looking for me to assist her; Assistant to the Assistant!!��� Anyway.....

Other than that, I a really working on making some changes for myself and my daughter....and hopefully great things are in store for us both in the near future.

    TRACE's Interests:

    About Me: Myself and my brother were both born in Los Angeles and Compton, but raised in New York. Both my sisters were born here in New York. I have a 14 y.o. daughter, soon to be 15, born 1 day b4 my b-day & we share the same name but spelt differently; we are 30 years apart in age!! I am not with her father, but we "try" to be civil. I am graduating this Saturday from ITT Tech; getting my 2nd Associates Degree. And I am now considering taking an online course to get a bachelor's degree in Construction Management. I have a sister that lives in VA, and I recently lost my brother to cancer. He was 11 months older than me. I lost an older sister back in 1977 to kidney disease (she was 17 when she passed); 11 months before that we lost our dearest grandmother very tragically. My dad lives in VA, and I live in NY with my mom, as I have to keep an eye on her. she is getting up there in age--driving me nuts....Lol. I like a little innocent gossip every now & again...but you didn't hear that from me!! And I am very opinionated and trying to learn to control that...Lol...I'm laughin ain't workin out! As you can tell...I like a good laugh but I know how and when to be serious. I am so serious when it comes to my daughter & two nephews. I am a strong woman (very thick skin) but can be sensitive at times. My most embarrassing moment: I'll just say...putting my foot in my mouth (done that a couple of times). Remember I am opinionated!! I really have to concentrate on learning that less is best! People I miss dearly: Toni & Dee, Grandma Emily & Grandma Lela; my girl cousins that always looked out fo' me--Lisa, Gail, Natalie...and so many more family members...R.I.P. yall. There is one other person I miss with all my heart....but I refuse to speak on it!!!! That is my story and I am sticking to it....LOL!

    Interests: I like to go see a good movie, take my daughter out and treat her to lunch or dinner, or a little shopping spree when I can. I like to go out to happy-hour maybe once or twice a year. I enjoy laughing at my crazy-behind nephews! Messing around on the computer putting together home-made videos to music. Another passion I have is sluething, investigative stuff (getting into people bizzness & bringing out the skeletons)...Lol. I want to learn how to build computers; and I want to eventually get into remodeling homes one day. Doing anything that will improve my situation. Therefore, my #1 focus in my life....getting better acquainted with....My Lord & Savior and being the best Saint I can be!! Yes...that's right--I am there!
