Today was one heck of a strange day!
We’d barely gotten back from Church, and had just had a late breakfast, when I was notified that ‘Legachi’s friend was here, with his brother’. […]0

I woke up on Tuesday feeling heavy. Maybe it’s because I ate quite liberally over the weekend, or the fact that I hadn’t been to the gym in a minute. Either way, I woke up feeling like I was […]0
By the time we settled down to dessert, I had relaxed enough to try to enjoy Ahanna’s company, and was pleasantly surprised to find that he not only had an incredible sense of humour, but was actually pretty c […]0
“Good evening, Ma.”
I didn’t know what I was more irritated by. Ahanna balancing in my living room, gisting and laughing with JJ, or him calling me Ma. I almost stopped to remind him that he’s only 4 years […]0

As I prepped the kids’ lunch for school this morning, I saw Legachi walk into the kitchen, from the corner of my eye. Since my return from the U.S., we’d barely send more than a few words to […]0

I always love spending the holiday here with my sisters. Even though it’s a traditionally American one, in years past, my sisters and I always used the opportunity to be […]0

Today was very reminiscent of the movie Groundhog Day, where the lead character (played by Bill Murray) wakes up on the same day again and again and again.
That’s how I felt when Akwaugo […]0

It was a very dejected Chidera and I that alighted from out taxi, after the failed trip uptown. But even in our dejection, my cousin made sure I got an earful all through the ride, about how […]0

After sitting and moping for almost an hour, and with Akwaugo nowhere in sight, Chidera sighed deeply.
“Abi we should go and meet her there?” she asked.
I thought about it. After all, […]0

I was in shock for the rest of the ride yesterday, right up till when Chiemela dropped me in front of Akwaugo’s apartment building.
“Chiemela, biko!” I implored, when the car was […]0

Chidera and I sat up talking into very late in the night. Okei had been gracious enough to give up his space on her bed, opting to sleep in one of the many other rooms of Ogonna’s big house, […]0

Well, against all odds and pressure…I’m here in NYC!
As usual, my plane landed at about 5am this morning, and as usual, it took me about 90 minutes to get through Immigration and baggage […]0

I have only a few more days before leaving for America, and I’m not even half ready. The first thing I did this morning was look at the long list Akwaugo sent me, and truly, it has given me a […]0

By the time I left for the airport on Monday afternoon, Aunty Caroline had already landed in Ogonna’s house. In fact, she’d gotten there as early as 8am! Even though our Dad had wanted to […]0

I found myself tossing and turning all night, unable to sleep. My sister is pregnant! My 44 year old sister is pregnant! I found myself oscillating between exhilarating joy…and fear that […]0

Today was Legachi’s first day of work.
Watching her rush around the house, in a nervous, confused dash, looking for this document and that document, I couldn’t help but feel nostalgic, […]0

I found the perfect way to take care of my sweet tooth. Ogonna sent me the recipe, alongside her updated recipe for beef stonganoff
She calls it her Oatmeal Ice-Cream! It’s about mixing […]0

After a rather quiet weekend, my week got off to quite an exciting start. For one thing, my gym sessions have been extremely intense, what with me finally agreeing to follow my Trainer’s […]0

It has been a most grueling week indeed!
Meeting Wonu at the gym a week ago was all I needed to get me full pumped and motivated for this weight loss drive of mine. I have been at the gym […]0

Driving my father to the airport was bitter sweet for me. It’s amazing how a quick trip to Lagos to renew his visa, turned into an over 2-month stay, with a trip to America interjected in […]0
