I’m a single-mom to a 4 year-old little boy I adore.  His name is Aidyn (if you haven’t noticed — his name is my name spelled backward … cool, huh lol).  So I discovered that there were Mom’s out there that blogged and decided that I love my son and I love to write so *BAM* a blog was born.  So, it’s basically just me and my baby … looking to conquer the world … one episode of SpongeBob at a time .


I found myself so very excited to be a guest blogger on Tier1 Living that I ran into a little blogger’s block. I decided that since the weather was perfect again, I’d skip the train and walk the 31 blocks home … Actually, I always walk home in the Spring/Summer seasons … It’s great exercise,  a nice way to check out NYC and thousands before me have used these very streets for inspiration
and now so will I …

So, I’m walking here … trying to think of a way not to disgrace my first guest blogging job when …

I pass a woman petting a dog … Wait! … She’s not just petting the dog, she’s damn near sodomizing it … I can understand ones love of dogs but do you have to make out with it … Wait! … that’s not even your dog??

So I continue on my way … trying to decide: should I write an open letter? or a witty entry? when …

I pass three young men who’s pants are hanging down just below their butts … I think to myself: Do you guys have to wear your pants that low?  I mean, how on earth do they even stay up?!  It just defies all laws of gravity!

I let out a sigh … switch the song on my iPhone to John Mayer … Perfect … now I’m relaxing and my attention is back to the blog entry when …

Omigod they closed Dunken Donuts!  B..B..But when did that happen!  Where will all the happy little Boston Creme and Jelly Donut’s live now?! I’m not gonna cry!!  I am not going to cry …

I shake off the shock, take a deep breath and return my attention to my entry.  Ok so I’m concentrating on the wonderful post I’m going to create when …

I hear some shouting over the “concert loud” music playing in my ears.  Uh oh! Someone’s in trouble with a traffic cop.  These are the worse people to mess with.  Traffic cops are cops that have settled for less and they walk around with a chip on their shoulders just waiting … waiting! … for someone to give them a reason …

Thank goodness that’s over … I decide to use the WordPress app on my iPhone to maybe jar up some inspiration by writing down some random stuff … I’m writing away when …

I damn near eat it big time as I’m quickly reminded that it’s never a good idea to type and walk at the same time …

I shut down my iPhone’s WordPress app and stick the phone back in my pocket … Frustrated, I wonder: Why can’t I just focus on one thing!  Oh I know! I’m on the verge of a perfect topic when …

I happen upon two of the most gorgeous cops – this planet has ever seen!  It’s like my calendar just spontaneously came to life.  I think to myself, “Hello Officer January … Officer March! God, I love a man in uniform … Do come serve and protect me anytime, fellas!”

Feeling all warm and fuzzy, I turn back to Tier1 Living!  I just can’t completely bomb my first time guest blogging … So how do I make this blog entry completely genius?  I’m gathering up some great idea’s when …

I’m almost run down by a jogger … Aww, she’s all fit and everything … I wish I could go out and get some exercise … The baby keeps me busy but somehow all his treats and cookies find themselves on my plate!  Note to self: back to the gym, STAT!

Hey I know! I decide I’ll write something witty about my love/hate relationship with weight and food when …

Ewww … Someone disagreed that streets are for walking …
and pee’d on it instead …

Now, there is no way I can concentrate on food after smelling that!  I’m panicking now, thinking I’m going to totally fudge my first guest blog post when …

I see a couple of bushy-tailed squirrels playing around on a tree and fence … I stop for a moment thinking, “How cute!  I wanna play … and partake of their game …

(Snapping back to reality): But I can’t play!  I have to concentrate on what topic I’ll write about … I’m surmising how Brandy’s never going to invite me back to guest blog when …

More joggers?!  WHERE ARE THESE PEOPLE RUNNING TO! AND WHERE ARE THEY COMING FROM!!

Back to my guest blog … Surely there is something that this city can inspire me to write about!

Ooooo cupcakes! … Look away!! Keep walking!

I’m in silent hysterics now and wondering: Jeez! this city is so distracting! when …

Finally!  I’m home … maybe now I can sit down and really start thinking about what to write!
