Tell The World I’m Coming… Home Let The Rain Wash Away All The Pain Of Yesterday

I booked flights for about 10 days out. They were the right combination of cheapest and nearest in date. Well they weren't cheap, but I just wanted to get out of there ASAP. Then, after I booked the flights and paid, I sent an email to my mom letting her know our itinerary and just … Continue reading Tell The World I’m Coming… Home Let The Rain Wash Away All The Pain Of Yesterday

Should I Stay Or Should I Go Now If I Go There Will Be Trouble And If I Stay It Will Be Double

I spent the next couple of days in what can only be described as a fog. I was there. I was alive. But I was definitely not thinking clearly. Everything was blurry. Fuzzy. I couldn't concentrate on any of the mundane day to day things that needed to be done. The kids needed to be … Continue reading Should I Stay Or Should I Go Now If I Go There Will Be Trouble And If I Stay It Will Be Double

The Cat Came Back The Very Next Day The Cat Came Back They Thought He Was A Goner

The drive away from my home and my life was quiet. I was doing my best to stay calm. I had my kids to worry about, and I didn't want them to sense anything was more wrong then what was blatantly obvious... Daddy had just beat up Mommy, and had packed up our things and kicked … Continue reading The Cat Came Back The Very Next Day The Cat Came Back They Thought He Was A Goner

Sunday Morning, Rain Is Falling /Clouds Are Shrouding Us In Moments Unforgettable

It was actually a bright and sunny day in Kakamega. But rain would've been a simpler reason to explain to my 3 year old son why Daddy had changed our plans for the day. It was Sunday morning, Jan 2014, and the night before E and I had decided we would take the kids into … Continue reading Sunday Morning, Rain Is Falling /Clouds Are Shrouding Us In Moments Unforgettable

I Can’t Believe Deez Ni**az Came And Tried Ta Rob Me Fo’ My Shit After All I Did Fo’ Yall, This Tha F**kin Thanks I Get

While living outside of Kakamega, Kenya, it seemed more difficult for E to adjust than for myself. New things don't scare me much, and I'm always up for talking to new people and having fresh experiences. But for E, what we didn't understand at the time (about 2013-2014) was that his schizophrenic tendencies were becoming … Continue reading I Can’t Believe Deez Ni**az Came And Tried Ta Rob Me Fo’ My Shit After All I Did Fo’ Yall, This Tha F**kin Thanks I Get

You Should Have Put A Ring On It Don’t Be Mad Once You See That He Want It

E had big hands. Huge hands. Like it was ridiculous. We went multiple times to different jewelry stores looking for the perfect wedding ring for him. I asked him so many questions about what he would like, what did he want it to look like, how big, what style. I really wanted him to like … Continue reading You Should Have Put A Ring On It Don’t Be Mad Once You See That He Want It

Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked / I Can’t Hold Back Though You Know I Wish I Could

We'd been living in Nakuru for about 2-3 months now, and had settled in as best as we could. E had been asked to come back and play for the national rugby team so he kept busy with that. I was occupied with attempts at learning a new language (unsuccessfully), raising a baby (successfully), and … Continue reading Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked / I Can’t Hold Back Though You Know I Wish I Could
