We only have 1 more episode before Power is over for good but we still haven’t been told who shot Ghost. We started with 7 suspects ( Dre, Paz, Tate, Tommy, Sax, Tasha, and Tariq) and throughout the last 4 episodes, we have ruled out 5 suspects. Now I already knew it wasn’t Paz, Tate or Sax because they all are scary and not about that life but of course, the writers have to keep us guessing. Have no idea what I’m talking about?

Who Didn’t Kill Ghost? Final Season of Power Mini-Review

Episode 11, “Still Dre”, we found out Andre Coleman (Rotimi Akinosho) didn’t kill James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick) and got a glimpse into what his upbringing was like. Then he died, which was long overdue. Episode 12, “He Always Wins”, was so dreadfully boring but we found out Paz Valdes (Elizabeth Rodriguez) and Cooper Sax (Shane Johnson) didn’t kill Ghost because Paz was too scary and paranoid ALL THE TIME and Sax was there when Paz reburied her sister Angela Valdes (Lela Loren) so he was already cleared. Episode 13, “It’s All Your Fault”, we confirmed Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora) didn’t kill Ghost.  We also found out that Tommy saw the killer but Ghost asked Tommy to spare their life and they made up before Ghost died. Episode 14, “Reversal of Fortune”, We confirmed that Councilman Rashad Tate (Larenz Tate) didn’t kill him but we knew that because he paid Dre to kill him in Episode 11. Tasha St. Patrick (Naturi Naughton) wouldn’t shoot Ghost because she’s not stupid enough to do it, and I’m sure she read the life insurance policy which most have a clause for married people which mentions nothing will be paid out if they kill or have their husband/wife killed. Tariq St. Patrick (Michael Rainey Jr.) shot him because he’s been a vengeful brat for too long and they should’ve whooped his butt when he first started. “Spare the rod, spoil the child.” 

Now, if you’ve gotten this far and have no idea who any of these people are but are very much intrigued by the storyline, you have approximately 7 days to binge-watch Power seasons 1-6 before the final episode airs on Sunday, February 9, 2020. Don’t have cable? That’s ok, you can do a FREE 7-day trial through Amazon Prime. If you choose to keep it, it’ll only be $8.99/month after your free trial. If not, make sure you cancel before the subscription ends. If you decide to keep your subscription no worries due to the seamless transition from the free trial to the monthly subscription.

SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST

30% off wine when you buy 6 bottles or more!!

 

My personal FAVORITE wine is the Stella Rosa Black. It will be on sale for $11.99 but when I buy 6 bottles of them, the cost before the discount is $71.94 plus tax. With the discount, it is $50.35 plus tax. Regular price is $16.99/bottle. So I actually get some of the best wine for 50% off and 6 bottles will last me until the next 30% off sale.

 

You can mix and match your 6 bottles with any bottle of wine. They even have some wine that is $3.99. So, if you get 6 bottles of $3.99 wine plus that 30% off, it will be a total of $16.75.

 

Stock up now and HAPPY SHOPPING!

Plant The Seed and Watch It Grow

I’m often asked, “how old is your son?” My answer “He’s 3.” Their response: “Oh my Gosh, he is so smart for his age. How does he know so much?” I decided to reveal my so-called “secret” to those who might be needing a little inspiration for their little one or future little one. Some may think that I sent my son to school just to learn. No, I mostly sent him to school to interact and socialize with children his age.

Disclaimer: I am a first-time mom, and these are just activities I did on my own accord. There is no right or wrong way to be a mom.  

First and foremost, I have always believed that it starts at home. I would never send my child to school thinking that is the only place they will learn what they need to know to be successful at this thing called life. Kids are like sponges so let them soak up as much knowledge as they can while they are young and interested.

 

Now Down to the Nitty Gritty….

 

ONE: Belly Love. While pregnant, I read to my son. Now, you can read anything you want but I will be honest with you. At the time, I was in nursing school, so he received a lot of critical care and med surg information from me, but I also read children stories in between studying. I also played an alphabet song on YouTube every night. Very simple, short and sweet.

TWO: Flash Cards. I literally went to Dollar Tree and purchased flash cards for the alphabet, numbers, colors, & shapes. We practiced with these cards on a regular basis. Just make sure you mix the cards up so your child does not memorize the order.

THREE: Daily/Nightly reading. Everyone has different life schedules, so if you can’t read at night, read during the day. Start with super easy books. Examples would be: Brown Bear Brown Bear, What Do You See; The giving tree; Chicka Chicka Boom Boom; and The Very Hungry Caterpillar just to name a few. Reading not only expands their minds but it also gets their imagination going.

LAST: Have fun! Don’t be too strict on your children. Make learning fun by creating games and using your imagination. Every child is different and they all learn differently so be patient, take lots of breaks, and try different activities with them.
