    Tommie Hey ladies, how's everyone doing tonight?? Well I have been having the best days and night's so far, even on my off days, loving it to the fullest, and now in the process of making a chicken pasta salad, and enjoying the rest of my evening, even though I worked early this am and looking forward to all day tomorrow off, and this Saturday is our cookout with some friends here at our home, again, lol.. Okay, here's the good news ladies, yesterday evening I received an email in regards of an application I put in as a Customer Care Representative I for Anthem, (Blue Cross Blue Shield) here in Roanoke, VA, and the scheduled phone interview is this Friday afternoon at 3:40, so keeping my fingers crossed. And I go for my upcoming review test in July to help me prepare for my CPC exam scheduled in August, also in Roanoke. Now, all I need is my driver's license and we're gonna put the renewal ceremony on hold and make plans for next yr to go to the beach and if it's feasible, invite a few friends and family members ya know. All I can say is this God is good, and he has never failed me, my husband and OUR family. So through the storms, came a rainbow and we're enjoying it to the fullest. Ladies, hang in there, bc there's better days ahead and with time and absence of your loved one, comes strength, determination, growth, and motivation, which empowers "us" to be STRONG!!!, I'm glad I'm still able to be a part of this wonderful group of women who's faced and still is facing the reality of "temporarily' separated by someone we truly love, no society and the judicial can be so unfair at times, and they have a tendency to paint our kings as unfit, ugly men, when underneath and behind the mask and behind bars, they're truly loving men who so much deserved to be treated as human beings, not inhumane like animals, they're far from that, they have hearts, feelings like we do and at times, they may not show it as much as we do bc we love and care for them so much. Sorry, for the long post, but I'd thought i'd dropped by and say, "hey" and I love you all so very much. Take care and have a gn, Love always, Tommie~~~.

    Tommie Hey ladies, how's everyone doing today?? Well I'm okay, and this past Saturday I took the kids to a local spring fling where hot dogs, bottled water and chips were served and later on that evening they went to Straight Street, where they do weekend activities and free transportation is provided. I worked yesterday, was supposed to work again today and off tomorrow, but instead I called off bc my husband Deryck has had two seizures and calling the EMS would've been pointless seeing he's already on meds, and this Thursday on my day off, we meet with his first disability lawyer and she may even reconsider one of my other son's benefits as well, so I'm excited bc it finally looks like we're getting somewhere. This summer I will be retaking my medical exam, I go for the review test in July and retake my exam either in August or in September, so wish me luck, in the meantime, gotta get myself together, I just had lunch, hubby took a hot shower, feels a little bit better than earlier today. As always, Love Tommie~~~. PS-- I had to pay for the cancellation fee for my test, so I go on and take it this summer, so happy and excited, it's the CPC (certified professional coder) through AAPC here in Roanoke, VA..

    Tommie Hey ladies, and hope you all are having a great weekend so far, but my family and I are having a good day so far, I looove my days off lol, and so far, our marriage has had a few bumpy roads, but you know what? Through trials and tribulations, we made it work, bc deep down no matter what we really, truly love each other, and he knows there's nothing I wouldn't do for him, our family and our household, and w/o God the center of it, NONE of it would be possible. I work tomorrow morning through Monday morning, and off from Tuesday- Thursday, Thursday is my hubby's 54th bday and our middle son just turned 14 on the 8th also this month, and our baby boy will be 13 in May, the oldest our daughter will be 19 the 1st of June and the oldest boy will be 16 in November, and my bday is in September, I'll be 43 ikr no gray hairs yet.. And today what makes this day so special, the sun is out, temps in the 80s here in VA, house is cool and airy, he's letting me play my choice of music off my computer, we each have our own taste of music to say the least, and he's helping me with dinner, so we're just enjoying each other right now. One of the saddest things I had to experience and learn from, 3 of my male friends all in their 40s died unexpectedly 2 of them had kids, and out of the 3 only one with kids were married and they all died within months apart from each other, and the last one I haven't seen him in almost 7 yrs and he would've been 46 this coming August 22nd, and he died 3 wks ago today March 23, 2018. The point I'm trying to make here is this,"Tell someone you love them, bc you may never get that chance again", life isn't promised to no one at all, life is short and scary as it is, and the sad part, most of us have kids and we're stuck raising them in this cruel world, ya know.. So hold on to your loved ones a little tighter, bc if only I had answered his fb video chat, he might've still been here, and at times it eats me up inside, and also all their first names starts with the letter "J', smh, so ladies whether this is your first bid with your loved ones or not, be strong, stay positive, be of support to them, but most of all, TAKE CARE OF YOU AND YOUR HOUSEHOLD, b4 you're able to take care of someone else okay, whether you're struggling with addiction be it drugs, alcohol, seek help, it's out there, okay, so that way you can be the person your king has prayed, waited, longed, for. Bc it's like this, how can you help him and you ain't all together, make sense? No I'm no therapist, psychiatrist, counselor, but, with the right choices, you can make it and do it, okay.. And that's one of the reasons I'm still on this site now, even though Deryck has been out close to two yrs now, this coming November 28.. has life ever been easy for us both?? NO!! would we have it any other way?? NO!! bc we both know this life isn't easy to deal with at times, and it comes with sacrifices, compromises, and a series of tests okay, and that's where true love comes from, are you willing to stand by your man in the midst of a storm, or you gonna leave him high and dry?, and vice versa, what if it were the other way around, would we want or hope they'd do for us?? Most definitely. Now, how they act when they get out, hopefully it's better than worse, but me, I wish for best and expect the worse, if my analogy is right, okay. Anyways, I made a long post, and I hope I made sense of it all, but you all have a great day and I love you all so very much and hope I made someone smile today okay. Love always, Tommie~~~.

    Tommie Gm ladies, how's everyone doing this am?? My family and I are good, hubby made us all b'fast and I just put in my online application for Anthem, and yes still looking for career change, andd one the proctor instructors called me Thursday to inform me about the upcoming review test this summer in July, and I'll be retaking my CPC medical exam either in August or in September not waiting till November 3rd, helll naw, lol.. So I'm still keeping the job I have now, till something else better comes along. I just did my online Virtual Job Tryout with Anthem and looking to a quick response back from them, so ladies please keep me in your thoughts and prayers okay. Also one of my uncle's will be here with us visiting this Monday till Easter Sunday April 1st, the good thing is this, I will be on first shift, instead of second shift which is from 12 noon till 8:30 pm, instead I'll be working from 6 am till 2:30 pm, so I'm slowly working my way out of the kitchen into a job that suits my educational needs. I can't remember anything else, so ladies you all have a great weekend, tc and ttyl okay, love you all. Love always, Tommie~~.

    Tommie Hey ladies, how's everyone tonight?? Me and my family are doing good, enjoying this Saturday evening, my king is making us dinner, and I worked early this am, and came home and took a much needed nap, I'm not a am person, but I'd rather open than close and from the looks of it, I'll be doing more day shift hours than 12 noon till 8:30 although I'll be doing those from time to time just until I find the job I really want, and be in a place I'll enjoy and that is anything with customer service, part-time receptionist, medical/healthcare field, anything but food, I've done that for yrsssss lol and I'm so over it ya know. Again, ladies, old and new, please hang in there with your kings, they don't have too long of a bid to finish up, it may seem and feel like forever, but it's not. Like most of you on here, I was just like you all, doubtful, mind wondering idly, angry, hurt, sad, lonely and depressed. But those phone calls, emails, cards, letters, and visits when possible made oh so much of a difference let me tell ya, I'm getting flashbacks thinking about it, and as I walk through our new home, I think about how far we've came through the storms of test we've both endured from both ends and we're still "stronger" than ever, even when the outside thought we wouldn't succeed, but "together" we've made it through. The point is this, if Deryck and I can and will continue to do it, so can you, don't let anything or anyone deter you from achieving and accomplishing your goals, short/long term goals, you only live once, and don't put anything off tomorrow that can be done today, bc you may never get that chance, life isn't promised to no one, so do all you can and what you're supposed to do, but, don't lose yourself in the process whether your king has a few days, wks, months, yrs to go, that'll all fly right on by the more you keep yourself occupied, being occupied is what helped me, and that's what made the time go by so fast ya know. I hope I was able to shed some light on your situation, and I love you ladies okay.. Love always, Tommie~~~.

    Tommie Hey ladies, how's everyone tonight?? We're good here, going a yr since we've moved into our new home, ikr, time flies.. Our baby boy who will be 13 had a doctor's appt this am and I came home and had lunch and took a nap. I tell ya I love my days off, and so far this month, last month and the yrs before, my days has been nothing but appt's and now, it's work and appt's. I also ordered my books for me to study for me to retake my CPC exam, just waiting to see when will the pretest occur here in Roanoke, VA so I can hurry up and leave my current job which is PRN part-time dietary aide at a local retirement facility, been doing food service for over 20 yrs and so over it ya know. Bout the only thing I enjoy is that my days off rotate, for instance I work from tomorrow till Friday and off this weekend Sat and maybe Sunday, and still in the process of finding another job too, keeping prayers and my fingers crossed ya know. As far as my husband Deryck? He's good, as good as he could be, ladies, I'd thought I'd dropped by and say, "hello" and hope to hear from you again real soon, love you all, take care and have a gn.. Love always, Tommie~~~.

    Tommie Good morning ladies, how's everyone this am?? Well it's been great over here, hubby and I had our first cookout at our home this past weekend (Sat) and my first weekend off and vacation started this past Friday night after work and ends this Wednesday, so I'm loving my days off, yess gets stuff done, take our kids to their appointments and what not. And get some rest as well. One of my uncles may come and visit us as well in between the end of this week beginning of next month March, so happy and excited bc I haven't seen none of my family since I left home in Detroit, MI since 2007, ikr long ass time. Also, I am looking to retake my certified professional coding exam sometime this yr hopefully next month, here in Roanoke, VA this time and leave dietary where I currently work in.. Things are still continuing to fall in place at the right time. I hope you ladies old and new are staying strong and positive for your kings and they'll be home sooner than you think. Yes the bid first time or not, gets tiring, exhausting, depressing, and lastly stressful at times, but you can do it, like you all have and still experiencing 4.5 yrs seemed like a long time, but the more I stayed busy the faster the time went okay. But anyways, I thought I'd dropped by and say hello to you all and know that I love you all so very much, love ya, take care and talk to you all very soon.. Love always, Tommie~~~.

    Good afternoon Ms. Tommie, hope you all are enjoying your holiday weekend, I had grandbabies since Friday, so today is my day to relax, it is also the anniversary date of the day my older sister passed away over 30 yrs. ago, still feels like yesterday. but that isn't why I am posting to you, my Adam is due to get out soon like 30-35 days, we both are having our nervous issues, good and bad his concern is being able to take care of us financially, getting a job he feels no one will want to hire him, although I have told him there are places that will hire folks out of prison. he is stubborn he has experience to do jobs where he can make good money. he worked in prison till his life was threaten and he had to go into pc, My question did your husband have problems finding a job once he was home, did he get a lot of doors closed or was he fairly lucky? I keep trying to get Adam to be positive, about it he don't want to let me down, or have to depend on me. He has money set aside, but he is a planner and with my health issues, he don't really want me working, but I cannot work, it is not in me to not work.
