    Tommie Hello ladies, and HAPPY HOLIDAYS, MERRY XMAS AND UPCOMING NEW YRS TO EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU. Well I finally made it to my destination (Wytheville, VA) for my state board medical certification exam, slept some b4 it was time for me to leave, and left my family behind in Roanoke, VA which is like an hour and half away from where I am right now, so wish me luck tomorrow and hope and pray I pass. Still waiting on the verdict to see if I gotten the job for medical coder/administrative assistant within the company where I current work which is part-time PRN Dietary Aide, so yes, I put in my transfer last wk before it was time for me to come here for my state board exam and haven't heard anything as of yet, but, Monday should be the day, the day after I return from Wytheville, VA. You know something?? Yrs ago when I was with my ex, who is also my abuser, he would never let do anything like this, ya know and I married the man who not only loves, support, and respect me and the kids, but someone who's all about being positive, and even though my husband has yet to find work to support our growing family, bc of his ID situation, I don't love or look at him any less, ya know. Is it or does it becomes challenging at times?? Yes!!! Bc a yr ago we were wondering where we would be as far as the move, everything and 8 mos ago we finally found a home we really like and that's suitable for our needs. The few ppl that's been there, loves it, and loves it dearly, I never thought in a million yrs we've came this far and God has truly blessed us in more ways than one, and I have Him, my family, husband closest friends, other relatives, and of course you all for the undying support you've shown me, dealing with the separation of my husband and I and for the new ones, yes, you can do this. Five yrs ago, I was just like you all, should I stay or should I go? But I stayed for one or two reasons, bc I love him and I want to give it a chance and see what happens. Yes ppl will come and go out of your life, whether it be friends, families, neighbors, co-workers, etc.. they'll fade away, but bc they do, that shouldn't stop you from doing what you have to do for you and your loved ones, okay. The road is long, rough, hard, and there is light at the end of the tunnel okay. Hang in there, bc there are better days ahead okay.I love you all, and I hope to hear from you really soon, tc and enjoy the rest of your weekend okay. B4, I go, it'll be close to xmas b4 I get my tests results and my certification in the mail to show I passed my state board exam. And if the job thing doesn't work, yes I'll be hurt about it, but at least I'll be state board certified and can always find a job that fits my educational credentials. Wish me luck ladies and have a good night, okay. Love always, Tommie~~~.

Hard to believe tomorrow and Wednesday marks one yr since my love been home and that we've been married one yr also, time surely flies right on by.

    Tommie Gm ladies and happy pre Thanksgiving to you all, yes, I work half a day today (4:00-8:30 pm) and off tomorrow and Friday, kids last day of school was yesterday and our one yr anniversary of him coming home and our one yr wedding anniversary is all next week, November 28, 29. I'm off on the 27, and 28 but have to work on our anniversary and off Thursday November 30. The other good news is this, I will go for my state board exam next month (courtesy of my sister in law) so I'm more than excited and since December and January are such long months, something is telling me to not drop my classes for the spring classes starting January 8, 2018, bc I could work from home as a remote coder and still be able to go to school too. I'm leaving it in God's hands but I'm gonna or should I say I have to try somewhere, somehow. But my hubby is asleep, came home last night from work with the mellow smell of Grey Flannel cologne and a fresh hair cut, my, my, my, hmmmm lol...In fact just like does in the pic we took together.. This time last yr I was so excited of him coming home and it's hard to believe it's been a yr already and he still has to go back to Norfolk to file his paperwork to prove his legalized citizenship ugh, another 9.5 hours ya know, commonwealth sucks sometimes. At times I often wonder how life would be once we move to Charlotte, NC ya know and not deal with the commonwealth and their rules, which are ridiculous. I'd stay here if it wasn't a commonwealth state, but, it is and makes it hard for law abiding citizens to achieve anything good in life and the only support they may have are their "strong" wives. I love you all so very much, keep me posted on everything, we're having our first Thanksgiving dinner and looking forward to the Xmas holiday too, New Yrs and our anniversary of the day we met January 23, 2012. Take care each and every one of you, love always, Tommie~~~~.

    Tommie Gm ladies, how's everyone doing today?? Well I'm doing just fine, just finished my cup of coffee and decided to write you all and keep up to date on things, we're good, it's my day off today and tomorrow and so excited about the holidays, our anniversary (November 29) which I have to work, sucks, but it's okay we can make up for it later on ya know, but the good thing is this, I'm off either Wed, or Thursday or Friday so I know for a fact I'm off on Thanksgiving for sure and also I registered for my classes for this coming spring January 8th next yr for my Medical Office Specialist/ Billing and I am taking two classes one is two days a wk (Tues&Thurs) from 11:00-1:45 and on Wed (2:00-3:15) so I'll be off on Mondays and Fridays and of course Sat and Sun so there is where I should have plenty of time to get my homework done and submitted through BB(blackboard) like moodle for some colleges, but here at Va Western Comm College it's blackboard, and I will purchase my books next month some time through Amazon and through the courtesy of my sister in law she will be helping me pay for my state board exam certification although I'm still gonna use the VEC Va. Employment Commission to see how and if I'm eligible for a grant for them to pay for one of my other certification exam and if so, I'm gonna use all the limited resources Roanoke, VA has to offer ya know.. I love expanding my horizons, it gets me further than high school, college, bc I can become an asset to a company if not my own some where down the line. Ladies, hold on to your kings, dreams, don't let them go okay, this time on this date marks 3 yrs since I saw my now husband Deryck physically and November 9th fell on a Sunday and it was the day after my now 15 yr old son 12 yr old bday, I have 3 boys now ages 15, 13, and 12 and have a 18 yr old daughter and Deryck has a 26 yr old son and a soon to be 24 yr old daughter, none of ours, yet, idk my tubes are tied and financially we can't support a child right now ya know.. And like most of you here, I was scared, had doubts, anxiety, depressed, anger, feelings of betrayal, but I can't keep holding on to that bc all it does it make matters worse and keep us at odds, and yes there's light at the end of the tunnel ya know. I hate to cut this post short, I love you all have a great day today, love always, Tommie~~~.

    Tommie Hey ladies, how's everyone doing tonight?? Well my love left this afternoon to go to Norfolk, VA to get the paperwork done for his state ID, fingers crossed his appt, goes well tomorrow (his appt, is at 11:30) am at the local USCIS office that services this area, I know, I know it's ludicrous that they don't have an office like that here in Roanoke, VA and thanks to my sister in law, she paid for everything including my upcoming state board exam, which I will take in December, so I have a lot to be grateful for ya know. She's done more than my ex's family, (smh sorry asses) ugh and I can't thank her enough for all she's done since he's been home close to year this coming November 28th and our one yr wedding anniversary is the very next day. I am cooking dinner for us right now, got hot food on the stove, but ladies I wanted to drop by and share that piece of good news and I'll be checking back on you all again okay, and yes enjoying my two days off, today and tomorrow and back to work on Wednesday, Deryck will be back tomorrow evening if not sooner. Love always, Tommie~~~~.

    Tommie Good morning ladies, how's everyone this am?? Well unfortunately plans of the upcoming trip to Norfolk has changed, which means only my husband will be going, bc he has a 4 hr layover in Richmond, VA, yeah I know that sucks, bc I really wanted to go, but he has to do what he has to do, so in the meantime, keeping my fingers crossed he get the paperwork he needs to show proof he's in the country legally, even he already has that, but he has to go through hell and hot water in dealing with officials in this Commonwealth State of VA ugh be so glad we get a chance to move out of here one day hopefully to Charlotte, NC.. But I thought I'd dropped by and let you all what is going to be happening within the next few days, and yep gotta work this whole weekend, and off again Monday and Tuesday, work Wed. Nov 1st and off again Thurs. Nov 2nd.. You ladies have a great weekend, tc, and love y'all...

    Tommie Gm ladies, how's everyone today?? Well, my family and I are well and looking forward to Monday and Tuesday bc we are leaving to head down to Norfolk, VA bc Deryck has an appt with the USCIS office there to get some paperwork to prove he's a naturalized citizen (my husband was born in Trinidad Tobago and Spain and grew up in E. Brooklyn, NYC) so bc Roanoke, VA has no office like that here, we're gonna have to have a friend of ours drive us there and we'll all be back Tuesday evening, yep even taking the kiddos too, so they'll miss one day of school and be back to school first thing Wednesday morning and me, I will return back to work. So we're praying that it all goes well, and we'll spend one night at a hotel and all expenses paid with a family member of ours will be contributing for us to make that trip there and back, rental car, hotel stay, etc.. So that's what I'm looking forward to. Today is my day off and gotta work this weekend too Friday- Sunday and off Monday and Tuesday thank God so I can support my husband. The reason being he's having to go through so much of him obtaining his VA state ID is bc VA is giving him a run around, so even though a local agency a lady we've met with twice (also Trinidadian) and she's helped us to the best of her ability, she really, really tried more than his probation officer, so as Deryck said, there's no other way, except to ride down to Norfolk, VA for 4 hrs and 25 min drive so which means we should be there before, the latest, 9 pm, so we can grab a bite to eat, and have b'fast and coffee that Tuesday morning. Just writing this has me so excited. Also someone so dear to me is helping me pay towards my state board exam that'll be taking in December this yr, but, I'm still going to the VEC to see if I'm eligible for a grant, so you see, God is good and ladies, you may not think so, but I tell ya, I look back at my life and I say to myself how lucky I am to have such a wonderful man in our lives, and considering what my kids and I had endured for 9 yrs, God removed me and the kids out of that situation with him and his so called toxic family. I love Deryck with all of my heart, and sure he has his doubts, fears, and at times feels inadequate bc he's not able to work bc of his ID situation, so that makes me work even harder, bc I feel his pain, deep down inside and at times I wanna cry bc he feel so hopeless ya know. He can't even go to school to get the money to financially support his family, bc VA has some really, really strict rules, but that doesn't make me love him any less bc at least he's trying to put forth some effort into what needs to be done. Yes I'm tired at times, but in the long run, my hard work will pay off in the long run and I love that man with everything in me, idk what I'd do without him.. I loved a man who loved me for what he could get out of me, and then it lead to domestic abuse in all forms, and it made me who I am today, a strong black woman who's able to endure anything, the abuse, the separation, of my now husband to being a mother, and now a wife, so ladies, like you all are experiencing before I even started working again, I had no idea what God had planned for me and my family, all I had to do was to trust, believe and have faith in him and he'd handle the rest, in my case he did. So sorry for the long post, I hope this helps puts a smile on your faces today, and please dress warm, it's gonna be another sunny day but 42 degrees outside right now. Just had b'fast and coffee made over an hour ago made by love, and now just thought I'd dropped by and offer some words of encouragement. I love you all, tc, have a great day today with all that it entails. Love always, Tommie~~~.

    Tommie Hey ladies, how's everyone today?? Well I'm doing fine, just sitting here reminiscing how a yr has came and went, Nov. 28th and Nov 29th is right around the corner, our first holidays spent in our new home, next wk Wednesday Nov 1st will be 7 mos since we've been in our new home and too spending our first Thanksgiving together bc my love came home November 28th instead of that Thursday November 24th last yr Thanksgiving, it won't be our first xmas together, but definitely our first Thanksgiving and already got our dinner/dessert planned in my head. Wished we had us a car we'd go away for Xmas, but aye it's always next yr right?? Also November 29th is our one yr wedding anniversary, soooo, which means our first Thanksgiving and wedding anniversary spent in one wop, yayyyy, lol.. I can't wait, ooh too excited.. Next yr for the summer and holidays, I'm definitely looking to do something from spending a week at the beach to going to North Carolina and Tennessee, somewhere, where's a fireplace, warm chocolate chip cookies and hot chocolate and apple cider and watching the snow fall in the mountains. That's what I love about living in the Southeast, it's so beautiful, views you don't see too much of living and growing up in the Midwest ( I'm from Michigan) I'm a groupon, pinterest, southern living fanatic from recipes, home decor, to travel destinations. Also, I have an upcoming appt. scheduled finally for me to fill out all the necessary paperwork to determine my eligibility for a grant that'll pay for my upcoming state board certification exam (hopefully I'll be there this December) so keeping my fingers crossed. Still looking for another job, and nothing has panned out yet, but not giving up either. All I see is the long term goal, as far as relocating to North Carolina (Charlotte) where there's definitely room for growth, advancement opportunities and neighborhood that makes you say "Ahhh" and an abundant of community resources in Charlotte Mecklenburg County, NC.. Hopefully, my family and I will make down there one of these days and visit, but in the meantime Deryck has to leave to go to Norfolk, VA to get some paperwork done in regards of his ID situation, so hopefully that day will be a great day, ending with good results. Ladies, it seems like yesterday I hugged and kissed my baby when he came home and the morning (rainy morning) we got married at the courthouse, I still play those days amongst others in my head. To all the new and old ones, you feel as though it's a lifetime your love will be away from you, but the way I look at it is this, spend this time working on you, being a strong woman and capable of passing this test, you'll realize who's supportive of you, who's real, a good friend, family member, etc... Unlike some of you, I didn't receive a whole lot of support from friends and family, and the few that did support us, still stand behind us each and every step of the way. Don't lose sight of you and what's ahead, let God handle the rest okay. Now if he constantly takes you for granted in a negative sense, then you have to decide what's best for you, no one here has any right to make that decision for you, only you can. We're here for support no matter what the outcome may be, right, wrong or indifferent and whether or not we all may agree with it or not, it's still your life to live, and your decision to make, it's all up to you. Yeah Deryck and I has had lost some friends along the way, but it's okay bc ppl like them we don't need in our lives anyway, and while we may have lost some, we've gained more and they're been right with and by us the whole time. So again ladies be mindful who you have in your circle and stay busy, and focusing on you okay. And continue to reach out to us alright. I hope this helps some, and letting you all know to have a great weekend, tc, ttys and as always, Love Tommie~~~~.

    Tommie Hey ladies, how's everyone doing tonight?? Quite a bit of night chill tonight here in Roanoke, VA and yeah went for the interview and got turned down, I kind of expected it, but I look at it as though it wasn't meant to be ya know, however, I'm still looking for another job, not giving up on my job search, and haven't had a nap either so yeah tired as hell, made dinner with my husband's help, we had baked bone in ham, homemade baked cheesy mac and cheese and corn, iced tea, and most of the house is in for the night, including the kids too, everyone has had their fill lol. I'm up watching a classic movie, "Centennial" (1978) T.V. movie series and still putting in more apps as much as I can. Just thought I'd dropped by and keep you all posted and letting you all know too, next month is our wedding anniversary (Nov 29, 2016) and a yr since he's been home (Nov 28, 2016), this time last yr, I was counting the days and now we've made it and things are looking good no matter how things may be, good or bad, we're still together no matter what, I still love him and yet we may be at each other's throat, I look at what's ahead not what's behind. So stay strong and positive ladies and say to yourself, " One day, this will be us'. Separation is only temporarily, not permanently (in most cases depending on the severity of the crime). Keep us posted, and if ever you all want to talk to me, send me a msg and/or read my profile and yes I do have FB and IG too as well. Gn ladies, Love always, Tommie~~~~.

    Tommie Hey ladies, how's everyone doing tonight?? Me?? I'm doing okay so excited about tomorrow bc I have a new job interview for a front office assistant in a dental office here in Roanoke, VA. I was supposed to had been there this Thursday but something came up at the last minute and couldn't be there so I rescheduled for tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. and I am praying I get it bc I'm so over the kitchen, been doing food service for over 20 yrs and I need something that coincides with my education. Why go to school and waste the knowledge I've gained and not putting it to use?? It's like buying a car and not driving it, ya know. But anyways, I hope you ladies are having a good Sunday, and before I forget I slept most of the day away too, which was good bc I didn't know I was that tired either esp coming home from work super late last night, but anyways, keeping you all posted and as always, Love 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.
