Day 1: Photo of myself

This is me. ;) I colored my picture purple because I am supporting ALL those who have ever had to deal with abuse. This includes gay and straight people, adults AND children. I changed my profile on Facebook as well. I recently watched Erin Merryn appear on Oprah Winfrey talk about her abusive childhood. And today, Tyler Perry spoke up for the first time about his abuse.

No ONE should have to endure such pain. No body should have to live in fear.

I was lucky as a child. I didn't have to endure ANY abuse as a child. But I know children and adults who have been abused and are being abused now. We need to stand UP and take action. Especially when it comes to our children.

How was my day? Pretty good. It actually started nauseous and with a HUGE headache. My husband got the kids off to school and I rested. I caught up on my shows, The Good Wife AND Parenthood. (I catch up on ALL my shows on

I mainly rested today. I finally showered and got dressed for the day around 2. Don't judge me. I wasn't feeling very well earlier. AND NO, this is NOT an announcement for a pregnancy. I was just sick, that's all. I'm pretty sure it's a one time thing.

That's it. That was my day. If YOU would like to participate in this 30 day challenge, scroll to the bottom of my blog. Each day is posted. Just something for y'all to get to know ME a little better. If you do participate, let me know, so I can check your posts out.

If you are STUCK on what to post use this challenge as an excuse on what to do on your blog.
I found this 30 day thing at Brittney from Mommywood. She found it from her friend's blog. Fess up. Did YOU come up with this swell idea? I'll credit you if you did. :)

That's it. That's all I got for ya today.
Oh and one more thing.

I am unfortunate enough to come from a crappy family life so I know what abuse feels like but I am fortunate enough to NOT know anyone right now who is being abused and don't think I wouldn't turn their asses in because I would so quick! Great post!
