Post Thanksgiving

Although I can not begin to tell you how excited I am that Thanksgiving is over, just know that I will be even more excited once Christmas is over.
All my life, for as long as I can remember anyway, my mom shopped for Christmas gifts all year. She would stuff and hide it just about every week. I am not even kidding. By her doing this, I would always have tons of gifts and of course I was excited. I loved Christmas...when I was a kid. Now that I have kids of my own...not so much so. Now that my mom has passed away and Christmas was her favorite holiday...not so much so.
I know, having kids of my own, I should probably enjoy it just as much, if not more; seeing their faces light up on Christmas morning, and I do enjoy that aspect, but that is about the only thing I really enjoy about. I seem to get depressed because I can not give my kids the kind of Christmas that my mom, a single parent, always made sure that I had.
I am not new to this mom gig. I have been doing it for 13 years now, and for 13 years I have said, "I'm going to start shopping as soon as Christmas is over" and of course THAT never happens. I typically do not even start shopping until about a week maybe two weeks before the big day, and YES, I am ALWAYS one of those ones who is still out on Christmas Eve buying gifts.
I did not mind Christmas as bad when stores still had lay-away. Walmart did away this until last year, but they only allow you to put certain things on lay-away, and you can't do it all year. Only during the holiday season.
Anyway, I will say it again, I WILL START SHOPPING ALL YEAR LONG FOR CHRISTMAS AS SOON AS THIS CHRISTMAS IS OVER! There is also another plus to this...You always have something on hand for birthdays, be it your own kids birthday, or whatever.

For those who are wondering, the kids were with their dad this weekend, so Stormy, our Elf On The Shelf has not returned, but she will tonight!

Ahhh...HOLIDAYS

I find myself being so excited for the holidays this year, and probably for the stupidest reason...Stormy will be returning to our house Friday morning...given that the kids are not gone already with their dad. We shall see.

If you do not know who Stormy is, she is our Elf on the Shelf. We got her last year, but not until right before Christmas, so this year, we will pretty much have her for a whole month. I am so beyond excited about this, but kind of worried for a few reasons. Number 1...GEMMA! Gemma is the 7 month old Lab that we have and I fear she may eat the Stormy, the tree, AND the gifts. That is just the kind of sweet baby that she is. Number 2...hoping that Stormy doesn't forget to go back to the North Pole each night and play a different trick by mornings light.

I know that Dawson knows about Santa, and he knows about the Elf too, but he don't dare spoil it for his sister, and I have NO DOUBT that she knows the truth as well, but she honestly gets so excited. Last year, (more than once) Stormy forgot to "fly" back to the North Pole I forgot to move the Elf and play a different trick, or hide her in a new, crazy, unexpected place, and boy oh boy, she (Keigan) was upset.

I will be keeping a photo journal of our time with Stormy this year and of course I will be posting it on here.

Do any of yall have an Elf on the Shelf? What kind of things has your elf done?

Friday Night Blues

I love being a wife and mother, but just for the record, I love going out to the clubs too....and I have not been in a very long time. The hubs doesn't care for it too much. Not sure why, but there is just something about that LOUD music, and being with a group of friends that I long for...sometimes. I don't want to go every weekend by any means, but sometimes, I feel like I am going to go insane if I don't go, and yet...I still don't go. I usually find myself sitting at home singing to myself "she's got those Friday night blues."
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPejfpQPRhQ&feature=related



On the plus side to this NOT going out...I have managed to wash, dry and fold about 15 loads of laundry this weekend! EVERYTHING is getting washed and I think I have about 3 loads left and then I will sweep and mop, and I will be finished.
Sunday is usually the day that we go grocery shopping and clean the house together, and the kids too if it is their weekend to be home and not at their dads, but today the Hubs went to work so it has just been me. I think I may go start on the garage next but we shall see how my back is doing in a little while...

DISGUSTED

With everything that is going on tonight, I must say, I would NEVER leave MY country just because of an election. Be proud to be an AMERICAN, I am. That will never change. Sadly there are so many ignorant people out there who vote for someone based on their looks, their race, and so many other reasons, other than what they should be taking into consideration. Not to mention that it is time to get with the ages America...to hell with the electoral college. Let each and every AMERICAN be heard as an individual. Count each and every single ballet that is cast. How is it that we trust technology to save our lives, yet we still rely on something as out dated as the EC?

I am absolutely disgusted, but still proud to be an AMERICAN! 
 
 

Election day..joy joy

So today is THE day, and I hope Obama gets voted OFF the island!

I honestly don't usually get involved in all of the political bullshit, and I try to keep my opinion to myself for  the most part, but tonight....tonight I am sick at my stomach at the the fact that this fucking idiot, Anti Christ, could possibly be re-elected. This man is a FUCKTARD! He has done nothing good for the economy, and where the hell is the CHANGE he promised? We  got change alright, just not the kind that he promised.

I can not say that I am for one party or the other, as I believe and support some things from each side, so I just go with the lesser of two evils, I guess you could say. I followed along and did some research four years ago and I was against Obama then, and I still am...even more so.

I understand that it takes more than 4 years to CHANGE everything...for the good, but it damn sure did not take that long for him to make matters much worse than they were. I also know that as each President is leaving office, the new one coming in will inherit all of the bullshit created and left behind by the last, but if they really know what the hell they are doing, and stick to their guns and don't just say shit to get elected and then do the total opposite, then we would be much better off.

Anyway, that is my rant for the night.


Now, tomorrow back to work...Ugh. Hope my back feels better when I wake up.

12 sleeping kids

Toddlers and two year olds...sleeping...makes me want to go to sleep!
Yes, I am at work and it is nap time, but not for me. Lucky me, I get to listen to the lullaby music crap and watch the kids sleep. Do you know how hard it is to stay awake in here? Then on top if that, it's freaking hot as hell.

LOCKDOWN?

So, I have talked about going back to work at the daycare/church/private school, but I am not sure if I have mentioned anything about some of the new people there. I will not go into great detail, simply because I don't really know any details, but either way...there is a new girl that works with the toddlers. NOBODY and I mean NOBODY likes this girl. She has serious issues and claims that she is licensed by the state! Supposedly has a degree in child care or whatever it is called. She is fucking stupid, not the brightest crayon in the box. We work in a secure building and in the not so good part of town. She has supposedly just left her husband who would beat her daily and is now trying to kill her. She also gave this same man, the one that she fears for her life from, her code to get in the building! HELLO, are you really that ignorant? I do not know what all went on, but I do know that the cops were called and when I walked outside to go take lunch to one of the other centers, there were 15 cop cars circling the church. When I got back, this bitch was still there! I don't know what is worse, her giving him access to the building (that is full of children) or the director not firing her ass right then and there!?!?!? I will give them about a week to fire this idiot or I will not be returning. This woman has made what should be a safe place, a potentially dangerous place. I am not trying to get killed, just trying to make a couple of dollars working part-time. lol

I was going to write more, but I am sleepy now and I think I will go to bed.

When it rains, it pours!

Ugh, I know I have been such a slacker, but I have been busy, and I have had a serious case of "brain block" and nothing has looked right after I typed it all out. Lol. Maybe that is my OCD kicking in? Who the hell knows?
What I do now is that the past month has been crazy.

So, I think I may have posted before that I went to work at a private school/day care, right? If not, well, I did. I worked for about 2 weeks I guess. I don't know. Anyway, there was an issue and I asked to have the state come in and do an investigation...ON MYSELF. Reason being, a parent thinks that I did wrong to her child, which the state says I did nothing of the sort! The mother thinks that I pulled a chair out from under her son because he was sleeping and that in turn her banged his head/face on the table, and hurt his back on the chair, and then hurt his bottom when he hit the floor. NONE of this ever happened. I did inform the child that it was too late and that he could not take a nap and that he needed to stand up and walk around and wake up, and let him know that we were going to go outside as soon as everybody was finished with their homework, and cleaning up. When I was standing behind the child and asked him to stand up (as I am rubbing his back trying to encourage him to get up) he flung his chair backwards, while keeping his head on the table. I moved the chair to the side and then he tried to sit back down and obviously landed on the floor. He may have fallen 8 or 9 inches and landed on his bottom. He never hit his head or face, or his back (because there was no chair there for him to hit his back on) and on top of all that, he had a fucking backpack on! When the mom came to pick him up, I informed her as to what had happen and I thought that was the end of it.
WRONG! Another child (who's families are close) told her mom after they left that I had pulled the chair out while he was sleeping and that I was yelling at him. By the next morning after the whole ordeal the mother of the little boy this all supposedly happened to worked it up in her head and made it something that it was not. She showed up the next morning at school demanding that I be fired and that if I was not fired she would call the state and she would have me arrested etc. Of course when I get to work I know nothing about any of this and I am simply asked to write a report about what had happened in my class the day before so I did. 4.5 pages later I ask what this is all about and then I am told and told that there would be an investigation. I was glad to hear that because I knew that I had done nothing wrong. I went home, as I was not allowed to stay at work. My husband said I should have flipped them off and told them to fuck off and that I was going to the bar. lol.Anyway, they called me later that day and asked me if I would come in the next morning for a meeting and I said of course. I went in and had a meeting and was informed that I would not be getting fired over this, but would I be willing to have a meeting with the parent, and in the mean time until everything was settled I would have to work in the nursery from 9-6 and I would not be allowed to be in the halls during any transition times. NO INTERACTIONS WITH OTHER CHILDREN (other than little babies of course) and I agreed. I went down to the nursery and I could do nothing but think about everything over and over and re-play everything that happen, in my head, thinking maybe I did do something wrong, but I knew that I didn't. My meeting with the parent was at 2:30 so I had a good deal of time to sit and think. The more I thought about it, the more pissed off I got. I am not even going to lie. By the time 2:30 rolled around I was fucking furious, but I was calm on the outside. I thought the meeting was going good...until this bitch calls me a liar, and then as one of my other classes (two year olds) come walking down the hall to go to snack and they see me start calling my name and this fucking bitch says " I wonder what all these other parents would say if they knew that someone like you, who preys on children and harms them, works here?"  Mind you, this child in question is 8 years old, and 3 other kids have been questioned and the only person who thinks that I have harmed this boy is the mother and the other little girl who made up the lie to begin with.
I could handle her calling me a liar, and telling me that in her heart she believes that I pulled the chair out from under her son while he was asleep and thus caused him to get hurt, and then because he was crying from that, that I then picked this child up and threw him on the floor while yelling at him and telling him he was acting like a 2 year old!!! Are you fucking serious?!?! Yep. But I could not handle her telling me that I prey on little kids, and that she would not stop until I was fired!! When the bitch said that, I literally started seeing red, and I knew shit was about to get real...real bad, real fast. The director told me just to go back down to the nursery and I calmly said "no, I will just go home for the day" and I left. She said we would talk later. I knew that if I did not leave that place soon that I would end up beating the fuck out of that lady, and possibly killing her, that is how pissed off I was. I knew that if I did not get out of the parking lot before she came outside that I would either get out of my car and beat her head into the parking lot, or I would run that bitch down. THAT is how pissed off I was.
I went home and I kept replaying the meeting, and then the "solution" to the problem, locking me in the nursery all day and not being allowed to have any contact with other kids, the more pissed off I got. That solution was NOT working for me. I am not a dog and I am not going to be locked in a room all day. That is bullshit! Not happening. Needless to say, I basically quit.
A week or two goes by and they are emailing me, wanting me to go back to work there...with the toddlers and two's, which I would have LOVED, seeing how I had been working with those kids already. My husband was not as excited as I was, and really did not want me going back, and if I did, he did not want me working until 6 every night. I turned the job down.
They called me Thursday of last week and offered me a different job and I took it. I am back at the school, but I am still not allowed contact with the child in question, which is fine by me.
Since all of this, there has been a new center director brought in and she is a total bitch and has a serious ego problem so I do not know how long I will be there. LOL. I do not deal with stupid people very well, not to mention stupid bitches!

Now that I have that off of my chest...

Sometime after midnight on October 10th, my cousin was involved in a one vehicle crash and was life flighted to Hermann Hospital, which for those of you that do not know, is a trauma center in the Houston Medical Center. One of the best in the country. When I was notified the first thing I asked was "Was there anybody else involved and was he drinking, and was he going to be okay?" I asked this because my cousin is an alcoholic and this would not be his first crash DWI/DUI and that concerned me. Not because I am bitch, but after being involved in the EMS field, it is hard to have sympathy for a habitual offender. Maybe I am a bitch, I don't know. Either way, here is 5 days later and this is what I know so far. There was NO drugs or alcohol in his system, nobody else was hurt. He was not wearing a seat belt, traveling at a high rate of speed (at least 85mph) and left the road for no apparent reason. There was a bottle of Vodka in the truck, but like I said, there was NOTHING in his system. They think what happened was that he was detoxing (because he has been saying he was trying to quit drinking) and that triggered a seizure. CPR was performed and he was life flighted. I do not know if they had to use the jaws of life to free him from the truck. He pretty much broke every bone in one of his legs and his ankle is still swollen to do anything with, but they have done surgery to pin his femur and get it out of traction. He has been on a respirator since arriving at that hospital, and has been kept sedated. He did manage to pull the breathing tube out at one point, so they have sedated him even more, I guess. He can respond to some commands. He has woke up a time or two and asked for his mother, and told the doctors that someone needed to call his mother and let her know where he was at, all the while she was right beside him. He is unresponsive on the left side, and they have done an MRI on his neck and head but I am not understanding what the results were of those.
I have been informed to keep anything off of FaceBook, (not that I was posting that he was drunk or anything of the sort, just asking for prayers and letting other family members know what is going on, minus the details, but whatever. It is what it is I guess, but I am posting it here and really don't care what anybody says. It is not like all of my family reads this thing anyway.

On October 11th, another cousin of mine was involved in a wreck on his way home from work. He works nights so his wreck happened during the early morning as well, just not as early. He drives a Jeep and was hit on the side, by a kid driving to school. Thank God my cousin is alright and was able to climb out of his Jeep (that rolled over) and his wife and daughters were not with him.



This could have been very bad, but he must have had an angel on his shoulder! Like I said, he managed to get out through the passenger side door and walked away. Went to the local ER with some road rash on his arm, and I am sure a lot of muscle soreness. I don't know if you can see the fluid stuff on the ground, but I will tell you, if it had been me driving, that would be URINE because I would have pissed all over myself!!!

NOW, I think I have gotten the bad stuff out of the way, I will move on.

Dawson is really loving football and is still making all A's and taking all Pre-AP classes and is in the gifted and talented. Aside from his shitty attitude, I could not be proud. He plays 1st string Offense and Defense. I will probably get laughed at, seeing that I love to watch football, but know absolutely nothing about it, but he plays the "blind side" and some other position. I can not think of it right now. lol.
He also just turned 13 Saturday. That means I am getting old, damnit! I have a shitty attitude teenager. Oh boy, I am so excited.






Keigan is doing good, but she is not going to go above and beyond in school. She is too much like her momma, sadly. She is playing fall ball softball and she has a shitty coach, and she is not happy about that, but then at the same time, she does get lazy with her softball. I don't know. She loves it though and does not want to give up, so we will continue to watch her play.


I have not been taking too many pictures lately, and I keep telling myself, I need to take a picture or two every single day, but I just don't do it. I did however have a chance to go take some maternity photos of a close friend of mine. As much as I enjoyed it, I will not even try to lie, it was miserable during the shoot. Here are a few of the pictures.

Where do I start?

Well, it has been a while, and I have no clue how to start this post, so I will just back up to the point of.....WE MOVED OUT OF THE TRAILER HOOD!!! Yay.

Now we are living in a nice 2 story brick house....that does not have a fucking bathroom down stairs! Who the hell builds a 2 story house and not only makes all the bedrooms up stairs, but doesn't put a damn toilet down stairs? A man. A fucking idiot man. Yep, I said that.

Besides the fact with the bathroom, and the once was nice, but now that she has us by the pocketbook for at least a year, turned major bitch, manager lady of the house, we are loving it. The kids love it, and they love their new schools. Dawson, the oldest is playing is first year ever of football and he has made the A team. There is A and B for those that may not know. Shh, don't tell anybody, but the team does not appear to be all that good. They have played 2 games and 1 scrimmage and well, they have not came close to winning yet. We shall see if they get any better.

Keigan is playing fallball softball and she likes it, but appears to be very bored with the position they have her playing, which is center field. She played for 3 years already and has never played outfield, so this is boring to her I think.

The dogs seem to have adjusted quite well at the new place too. They have a huge back yard to play in, and get locked in sometimes when we leave.


I had gone to work at a daycare/private school place, but some serious issues came up with that, and I will get to that, but it will probably be tomorrow. Tonight I am just too sleepy to fool with it. It is  a long story and I get mad and upset every time I think about it.

Anyway, hope everybody has been doing good!!

Still getting settled in

Sorry, I know it has been a while, but in my defense, I have been very busy. We are still trying to get settled into the new house. In layman's terms, I am still trying to unpack everything and get the house organized. I have most of everything done, buy still have a few boxes to unpack and things to go through etc. On top of that I have started working Monday-Friday, and NOW, the rodeo is starting, so I will be busy with that as well.

I promise as soon as I get everything done, I will be back.

Friday, September 7, 2012

Woo-Hooooo OUTTA THE HOOD!

Okay, so now I am not trailer trash. HAHA. We have officially moved out of the trailer hood and into a nice, peaceful neighborhood. It is an older neighborhood, with cookie cutter homes, but it is still nice and we all seem to love it.
This moving shit is for the birds! I can promise you that the next time we move, I will be having a moving company come in and move everything. Hell, I may get them to pack everything too! As for this move, all I can say is thank God for a couple of great friends and  a couple of family members.
Everything has been piled in the garage, and I have been the one going out there during the HOT ASS TEXAS HEAT and working in the garage, trying to get everything unpacked and put away, and all while sorting through everything and getting rid of a lot of shit!! I will be having a garage sales soon!! I can not wait. I am just excited that I am being able to let go of so much shit. YAY me. I have even managed to get rid of some of "hector the collectors' stuff. Keigan (the 9 year old) is "hector the collector" because she never wants to get rid of ANYTHING at all.

Anyway, sorry this was not more interesting, but I do have things to do. Just wanted to let yall know where I have been.

Thursday, August 30, 2012

Not me

I'm sitting in the pick up line at Keigan's new school and the truck in front of me has this sticker on his tailgate. BarackObama.com. I would never publicly admit that I was an avid Obama supporter....if I was. Lol. Anyway, that's just me.

And so another season is upon us

 
Now that another season of football is upon us, it means that we have to listen to Houston Texans fans whine and cry about how bad the Dallas Cowboys suck. As a Cowboys fan, I will agree, they have sucked the last few years, but for fucks sake, so do the Texans. They made it to the playoffs and choked. Being that I live in Texans territory, I will cheer for them...when Dallas is not playing, but they are pretty much in the same shit pile as the Astros...or as we call them....LASTros.

And so it begins

So, as you know, we have been looking for a new place to live so that we could get the hell out of this trailer hood, and we have now signed the lease and everything is a go. We are moving this week. School started today. I still have to pack this whole house....needless to say, I have been busy, and will be busy at least for a week.

Since school started today, and we will be moving Friday, I did not want the kids to start school in the current schools they have been attending since January, so I went ahead and withdrew them today, and then enrolled them in their new schools. Such a pain in the ass. The withdrawal process anyway. Well, for the youngest. I went to her school first since they start earlier than the Jr High. I wait in a long line, just like everybody else. When I finally make it to the office there are about 50 people in there. I continue to wait, then I get to sign in and tell them what I need and then it is waiting again. Now, I hate to turn things into a race issue, but let me tell you, my two kids and myself are the only white people in a office that has at the very least 50 people in, and more are coming in by the second. All of the office workers are also Hispanic. Normally this would not bother me, but this morning it did. Only after I told them why I was there and also asked a question about the school. After that, EVERYBODY in the place started speaking nothing but Spanish and looking at me and my kids like we were from outterspace. Oh how I wish I was making this up. I could actually tell you more things that make me thing that this school makes things more of race issues, but is it really worth it? Probably not, so I will just continue. After about 25 minutes, and other people coming in behind me and getting helped before me, I start questioning again and this is when I was told (in these exact words) "You and you child are of no importance to us right now, as you are leaving this district,"
Umm, can we say INSTANT BITCH? Yes, I immediately turned into a bitch. I think my head even spun in a complete circle, and by the time I was done in there, I was honestly surprised that I did not end up getting my ass whooped, as I did say some pretty harsh things, and unfortunately one thing was a racial slur. Oh well though. I was very pissed off and I had had enough of the bullshit when they refused to withdrawal my daughter. The very last thing I said before leaving was "me and my kids are just as important as everybody else in this office, and I have waited my turn just like most everybody else in here, you ignorant bitch!!"

I left that school and I was fuming mad when I made it to the Jr High. I get in the Jr High and they tell me that I will have to wait until 8, which is when the lady gets there that does all of the withdrawal crap. No problem. Everything went smoothly at that school, and I was so glad. The only issue was the schools air conditioner was out, so it was hot has Hattie's in there.

Now we are off and running. We go to the city department and pay the deposit on the water so that I have something to show the schools, other than the lease agreement, and then we are off to the schools.

We make it to Keigan's new school first. These people in this school could not have been nicer. Not just to me, but every little person that walked into that office this morning was greeted by name and very enthusiastically. Everything went great......until they said she could stay for the day and took her to her classroom. Ugh. I knew she was going to cry, and I probably should have just left at this time, but I didn't. I walked with her and the lady to her new classroom to meet her new teacher at a her new school. No tears yet, so I am thinking "okay, maybe she is not going to cry" and boy was I wrong. We stood in the hall for a minute talking to the teacher and when the teacher said something about being excited and having fun, Keigan instantly started crying. I tried to walk her up to the door and the teacher was holding her hand. Keigan is pulling one way, the teacher pulling the other, and me pushing in the same direction that teacher is pulling, and this child is not moving. There is no way in hell that she is going in that classroom. Of course I start crying. No mommy wants to see their child being that scared, knowing there is nothing that I could say or do, other than let her leave with me, which I was not about to do, I finally just said "I love you, I am leaving, and I will pick you up as soon as school is over, see ya later" and Dawson and I walked off. I hated the filling that I had inside, knowing she was probably wondering why I would do that to her. She was probably calling me a bitch in her head. I have no doubt about that. I knew though, that at the end of the day when I picked her up she would be all smiles and will have had a good time. I was right!

After my dramatic and somewhat traumatic ordeal with Keigan, I now had to take my oldest to his new Jr High. No issues here. Everybody was friendly, but they did not keep the boy today! Ugh. Lol. Oh well. He will get a fresh start tomorrow.

After this long day I came home after picking Keigan up and I ended up falling asleep. I was fighting it. I knew if I went to sleep that I would be up all night. Guess what...It is 2:24am now. Yeah. The Hubs let me sleep until 10:30 tonight and then woke me up. I let him know right quick that if would have just let me keep sleeping that I probably would have slept all night long!!!

It is official....We are getting outta the Trailer Hood!

Yay! Today we went and singed the lease papers on the house, and as much as I hate moving, I could not be happier. The crappy part...school starts Monday and so I will be spending my day (probably arguing) enrolling the kids in their new schools.
It takes a freaking act of congress to get a child enrolled in school these days. True story. Such a pain in the ass, but it will be worth it this time.

Anyway, I have a lot on my mind right now, and so much I want to say, but I am holding back for the time being. Not wanting to stir up any bullshit, because I am not sure who secretly reads this blog. Normally I really would not give a rats ass, but I really am still trying to understand everything that is going on, and trying to see how it all plays out. We shall see...

My whole body is killing me, thanks to shopping all day, which I also hate. Detest, loath, whatever you want to call it. I want nothing more than to go get in my recliner with my kindle and pass out, but I really have a lot of shit to get done and less than a week to do it.

Friday, August 24, 2012

UHGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG

I could just freaking scream until I had no voice left!

After all of my looking, searching, talking to people, etc. I finally found a nice rent house. Went and talked to the realtor about it. She approved us, had to wait to get it confirmed with the actual owner of the house. The realtor even got the rent lowered 25 dollars a month!

Now, the dilemma is coming up with the deposit. I say this because the Hubs checks have been jacked up the last 2 weeks, I just paid all the bills, and bought some school supplies. Still need to get some school clothes though. Long story short, we have depleated the bank account for a couple of weeks. FUCK! FUCK! FUCK!

Not to mention I have put off enrolling Keigan into a school because I did not want to enroll her back into the same school, only to have to pull her out again. Dawson is enrolled, but only because his enrollment date thing came a couple of weeks ago. I still have yet to hear anything from Keigan's school. Needless to say, it is 2:10 on the Friday before school starts and I am pretty much screwed!

Anybody wanna send $1700 dollars to my paypal? LMAO

Hey, it was worth a shot?!?!

Have I mentioned......

Have I mentioned lately how much I hate living where we live? What about how much I hate looking for a new place to live? Yeah, well, I am doing so now. However, we may have found a house today! I am trying not to get excited about it, but I should know something tomorrow. Keep yalls fingers crossed!

While out driving around today killing time until our appointment to go look at a house we came across a nice house and called about it. There was no answer of course, so I left a message and the owner (a very old man) called me back this evening while we were out to dinner with family.
He asked me what I was looking for and I told him. Mind you, this a good size, older, but nice home. Exactly what we are looking for. He asks me why I am wanting a 3 bedroom? Umm, so I can grow some hydroponic marijuana in one room and run a child porn shop of the other, while me and my 6 husbands sleep in the master? No, I did not say that, but something along those lines crossed my mind in a flash. When I did tell him I had 2 kids his reply was "absolutely NO kids, and NO pets" and hung up the fucking phone! Hmm. Okay ASSHOLE, thanks anyway.

I can totally understand the whole no pets things. I get it, honestly, but is there any reason to be so hateful about it? Not to mention, hello, it is a 3 bedroom house...of course people with kids are going to be interested in the fucking house! Now that I am sitting here thinking about it, I may call the man back tomorrow and inform him that he could probably cut back on the unnecessary phone calls if he would list this shit on the huge homemade rent sign he has in the yard! "DO NOT CALL ME ABOUT THIS HOUSE IF YOU HAVE KIDS AND/OR PETS!" Jerkface.

Anyway, I will just keep my fingers crossed that we get the house we went and looked at today and this dreaded house hunt will be over....and I will be one block away from one of my bestest friends!!!

  10. Both of my parents have passed away.
  11. I still do not know what I want to be when I grow up.
The Questions I was asked:
1. Why do you love blogging? This is my personal outlet to vent, or whatever I feel like doing. Here lately I have found it hard to really write about anything and I have NO clue why. 

 2. If you could bring one person back to life, who would it be and why? My Mom. No doubt about it. She passes away June 6, 2008 and there has not been a day that has gone by that I have not thought about her and cried. I miss her more than words could ever say. I wish she could meet my new husband, and see how my kids have grown. 

3. What is your life long goal/s? Ugh, I detest this question! I have many goals and they will probably take my whole life to complete, does that count? 

4. What is the most embarrassing thing you have done in public? When I was probably in the 5th or 6th grade I would go to church with my neighbors. They went to a very well known church (now) LAKEWOOD. Anyway, my neighbor friends and I were sitting in children's church and all the girls were on one side, and all the boys on the other with an isle in the middle. I had an isle seat. It was freezing cold and I had my arms pulled into my shirt. We were playing a trivia game. Do you see where this is going yet? Well, like I said, we were playing a trivia game and the person who raised their hand first got to answer. They finally asked a question that I knew so I flung my hand up in the air. Yes, my arms were pulled into my shirt and folded across each other. When I flung my arm up, my shirt went flying across the room....TO THE BOYS SIDE!!!! Ugh. I never went back to children's church. We just always went to big church after that. 

5. What is your all time favorite  movie? Top Gun. I have no clue why. I am not a Tom Cruise fan, or Val Kilmer. 

6. What is the most thrilling thing you have ever done? I am a thrill junkie. I love a good adrenalin rush and I have done a lot of thrilling things so there is no way I can narrow it down to just one. When the tones drop for an ambulance being dispatched, and you really have no clue what is going on at the place you are being sent. Or being shot almost 300 feet in the air in a huge slingshot, that will get ya going! 

7. What piece of technology couldn't you live without? My iPhone and my big camera. Must have BOTH.

 8. What is your biggest fear? Something happening to my kids, or something happening to me in front of my kids.

9. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? I am pretty fond of Texas. The area that I am now, but I can assure you, I would not be living in this GHETTO ASS TRAILER HOOD!

10. Do you have any hobbies other than blogging? Sadly, I usually spend too many hours a day on Facebook to have hobbies. Lol. I love photography and I am currently building my own clientele.

11.Celebrity  crush? Sam Elliot.

So, here are my questions
1. What exactly made you create a blog?
2. Do you like controversial subjects/debates?
3. Are you doing exactly what you thought you would be doing in life?

Guess I need to be looking for boxes

Well, I guess the Hubs has finally had enough of living in the Ghetto Trailer Hood! As much as I absolutely HATE moving, I am super excited about getting the hell outta here. As much as I would rather buy a house (to keep from moving again) I do not know if that is going to be possible at this time. Once the Hubs mind is made up, it is time to get on with the program. We shall see how it goes. In the mean time I will look for both rent HOUSES and I will be trying to find out exactly what we need to do in order to buy a home.

We are suppose to be buying this hell hole, but after complaining to the office about the neighbors and the way they are, and offering to let go all of the money that we put down, and trying to switch to a renters lease and them telling us absolutely not, and not doing shit about the horrible neighbors, things have quickly progressed and our minds are made up.

The other night while Hubs was at work I happen to catch a glimpse of the back of our trailer....Ugh. Fucking disrespectful bastards! They have completely torn up the whole back side. They have a picnic table up against our house where they sit out there and drink and play loud music and beat on the house. They also have their BBQ pit up against our house! Hello, this is a trailer, in a trailer park...it will only take a matter of minutes for this place to burn to the damn ground!


On to other news...I got a new puppy today. She is a 3 month old yellow lab. She is full blooded, and she was FREE! YAY! I am in love with this silly puppy, but I would be lying if I said I have not asked myself a hundred times already "What the hell are you thinking? Puppies eat everything in their path, and they tend to be hard headed when it comes to potty training." So far she has done really well. She did have 2 little pee accidents, but that is it. She has never really been on a leash to be walked, but she does really good considering today was her first day. And of course, because of my new obsession with Sons Of Anarchy, her name is GEMMA. I couldn't name her Tara, well, I guess I could have, but that is MY name and I did not want my dog to have the same name as me. lol. The Hubs LOVES her, but so far is refusing to call her Gemma. lol. He calls her Roofus. If this puppy would have been a boy, I probably would have named him Jax or Opie.

Well, I guess that is about all for now. I will post some pictures sometime soon.

13 hours?!?!!!

A couple of weeks ago The hubs, the 9 year old and myself all went to pay a bill. A credit bill. This store has damn near everything you could want for your house. This is where we got our furniture, a new lens for my camera, and even my new desktop. We usually would just pay for thing outright, but we want to build good credit so we can buy a HOUSE, so we figured we would finance a few things and go from there.
I am usually the one that goes and pays the bills, which is great because I am not a shopper. Well, this particular day the hubs was home so he wanted to go too. Huge mistake. $500+ mistake! Yes, you read that right. While I am paying the bill, the hubs and Keigan are shopping and they decided we needed to have some bluray/dvd/wireless surround sound system. It was $500 bucks! I about shit, right there in the middle of this store. I did not say anything. Just told him whatever he wanted to do was fine with me. I mean shit, this man works his ass off. The family is taken care of, so if he wants this silly contraption, then by all means, he should get it.
We come home, he hooks the stuff up and all the while I am on the computer and cleaning up around the house.
A couple of weeks go by and he then decides we need to sign up for Netflix again. Ugh. I hated that shit the last time we had it. Never really had anything that I wanted to watch, and then it would take forever for new movies to be available, blah, blah.
Here is his reasoning behind wanting it...we both have a Kindle Fire, his cell phone is a 4G LTE wireless hotspot, and then he will be able to watch movies off of Netflix on the kindle using the wifi from his phone while he is at work!! Silly man.
 So, what do I do? I sign up for Netflix, again, and then I just go about my business on the computer. Still have never even TOUCHED the remote for this stupid surround sound. A few days, maybe a week, passes. He is watching nothing but Netflix. Fine with me. I just stay on the computer. lol.

That all changed yesterday.
I am not usually a big time tv watcher. I would rather sit in front of my computer and read blogs and play on FaceBook than watch tv all day.
Yes, I have shows that I watch on certain nights, and I usually DVR them, so that I can watch them when ever I feel like it.

Well, yesterday I decided I was burned out on the computer and I really wanted to watch something with my husband, so we decided we would see what all the hype was about Sons Of Anarchy. We started with season 1, episode 1 at 12 noon Wednesday. 13 hours later I was moving on to season 2! 13 hours of sitting in one spot, not taking any breaks, just watching this show.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS SHOW! Tonight I finished season 2, and I will be starting season 3 soon. Sadly, season 4 is not available yet, so I will be having to find it so I can watch it before season 5 starts September 11!!!

I am such a dork

The kids are at their dad house this weekend and so the Hubs and I went to dinner with some friends. After that we had to run to the store for toilet paper. No big deal. Well, that toilet paper was to the tune of almost $60 bucks! Yeah...The Hubs decided that since I have not been reading on my kindle fire (because I have read everything on there already) that I needed to get some books and he knows I will not buy them direct because of course I do not like to spend money on myself and plus it comes right out of the bank. Still doesn't make any sense does it?
Well, I just happened to have some cash from doing hair the other day and that is what he used to buy me the $50 dollar amazon card, which technically it did not come out of the bank, so whatever.
Anyhow, we get home, I activate the card and instead of getting good books to read, I spent almost all of my money on photography books. How to, for dummy kind of books. How freaking boring is that?

Bucket List...part 1.

My kids ask me all the time about things that I would like to do before I die and I always just tell them the same thing..."Go to Hawaii" or "Go Skydiving" and they just leave it at that. I ask them stuff and they start spouting off all kinds of stuff. The youngest tells me I need to watch the movie Bucket List, which I have seen most of, and tells me I need to make a list and start doing these things because I am getting too old to be going and jumping out of planes. HELLO! I am only 34! So, I guess I will start my bucket list over again, and actually put some thought into it.

- I want to go to Hawaii. This is one of my dream vacations. I am not really sure why other than the fact that there is beautiful water there and living here on the Gulf Coast/Galveston Bay, I would much rather be anywhere that there is actually pretty water. I also want to go to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. 



-I have been to California a few times, and I have done the tourist thing as far as going to Hollywood, and driving down Rodeo Drive and all that. I have been to the beaches in Santa Barbara, and I have been to Universal Studios-Hollywood. Had a blast, but I want to go back and go to the Redwood Forest. I heard that General Sherman (one of the "big to-do" trees) has fallen, but I know there is still a whole forest there to go look at and be in total amazement.

Just look how freaking huge that tree is!!!! And to think there are many more just like that, still standing!

-Skydiving! I have wanted to do this for as long as I can remember. I keep telling my husband this is what I want for my 35th birthday. He doesn't seem to think it is a good idea. lol.
Doesn't that make your heart beat a little faster just looking at this? Ugh. It does mine!!! Did I mention I am afraid of heights too? Yeah, but I WILL do this!



 -Las Vegas. I am not big on gambling. I have serious issues with just putting money in a machine and praying that it will pay off, but the husband loves it, and we do go, but not to Vegas, obviously. While I am there I want to go to the to of the Stratosphere and ride the ride. I want to ride every single one of them, especially the Sky Jump. If I could do this, I would forgo the the skydiving. The Stratosphere is Its tower is also the tallest observation tower, the 9th tallest freestanding structure in the United States, as well as the tallest in Vegas. The Sky Jump allows you to free fall 855 feet. If you have no clue what I am talking about, google it.



-The Grand Canyon. I have never seen it, and I don't really care exactly what part of it I see, but I just want to go. All of the pictures I have ever seen are absolutely beautiful and I want to see it in real life. I would like to maybe go the Havasu Falls in the Grand Canyon. That would be awesome.





-Zion National Park in Utah. I seen this place being featured on the Travel Channel as one of the top places to visit probably about 6 years ago and I have wanted to go every since. All the things they showed were simply astonishing and would leave you breathless.



                 I DO NOT OWN ANY OF THESE PHOTOS. I GOT THEM OFF OF GOOGLE.


It has taken me well over an hour to type out this blog because every time I go to get a picture of something, I get carried away and start planning my trip in my head. I don't have time for that right now, as I need to get off of this life sucker and get my stuff together. I have to go cut, color and highlight my aunts hair. The kids just left for the night with their dad, and I am going to have to wake the Hubs up and see if he wants to go with me or not. He worked all night last night until I guess around 1 or 2 something this after noon. I don't know exactly when he got off. Anyway....

Random things I find cute, funny or simply irresistible!

National Chick-Fil-A day? Give me a break!

Apparently now that Chick-Fil-A is the talk of the nation, for something that the current CEO recently stated in an interview (we will get to that in a minute) the fast food chain has declared today, August 1st as "Chick-Fil-A Day" and I think it was a great business call. I mean hell, I know it has been on every news station in America and then some, pictures of CFA's all over the place, packed to the gills. People waiting in lines for HOURS...all for what is a very over priced chicken sandwich and some waffle fries, in my opinion.

Now, after doing some searching, I know that Dan Cathy did not say anything in a derogatory manner, nor did he discriminate against gays or lesbians, or say that they were not allowed to work for the company, so I am still boggled as to why this has become such a fucking issue, but it has, and here we are. Everybody putting  their 2 cents in, and so here is mine.

When I logged into FaceBook this morning I had about 8 friends who had the exact same thing posted. It read ""Everyone remember today is National Chick-fil-a appreciation day! No, it’s not a public holiday but for many Americans it is a religious holiday. Lets support the company “whose executives are willing to take a stand for Godly values.” He wants people to celebrate those values “by simply showing up and eating” at the fast food restaurant. NO SAME SEX MARRIAGES!"

First of all, I guess you could say I am "pro-rights"? If that is even such a thing. I usually try to stay out of political talk, and I could not tell you the difference between democrat and republican, but I know that I share some of the same thoughts of both political parties, I am sure. When I say pro rights I mean, I think that every AMERICAN CITIZEN should be allowed to love who they want, marry who they want, as long as both parties are of legal age, and they should be allowed the exact same marital rights as what society has deemed a traditional marriage.

For what it is worth, I feel the same way about abortion. If a woman wants to have an abortion, so be it. That should be her choice. It is ultimately something that SHE has to live with for the rest of her life. Not the rest of us. Trust me, I am 34, and I have friends who have had abortions, and though I do not agree with abortions and I would never have one, I remained friends with these women, all of whom I am friends with today, and I have never condemned  them for their choice, yet I know that it something that each of them have to deal with on a daily basis, and something that most of them think about quite often, if not daily.

This is suppose to be a FREE country. Thanks to our MILITARY for gaining and keeping that for us. We should be able to make our own choices and not be judged. It is mind blowing that the very people that scream for tolerance seem to be intolerant of anyone who does not share the same point of view.

Back to the issue at hand, I have had a lot of flack on my FaceBook today over a post that I made about all the post that I was seeing. I was not bashing anybody in anyway, but I very nicely said that I was sick of it (so this will be my last posting on the subject) to shut the fuck up already. Only I put it STFU. That was nice, for me. I am a firm believer that when you post anything on a public forum, then you need to be ready for all the flack that you may receive. Don't think that everybody is going to share your same opinions and have the same thoughts as you and agree with you. Of course, most people know that and that is the very reason they post half of the shit they do, so that they can get a lot of traffic on their page. That is my opinion.

I will tell you that I am NOT involved in any organized religion groups, but I do believe in God, and heaven and Hell and the devil. But I also have my own opinions and I am skeptical about things. That is human nature people. I have heard preachers preach about Heaven and how your loved ones will be waiting for you on the other side, (which I hope is true because I miss my mom and pawpaw immensely) but does  anybody really know? The Bible has different versions. If there is but to be 1 God, how can there be so many different versions of His word?

I have also heard preachers preach that our loved ones will NOT be waiting for us on the other side, again, who really knows?

A while back I went to a Catholic funeral and there were "cheat sheets" of what the congregation was to repeat and when and whatever all they do...Why? because it has been discovered that somehow, over all these millions of years, things have changed? Go figure. I am not bashing this religion, just pointing out the FACT that NOBODY really knows what the hell was going on way back when. Not one single person on this planet today can trace back their family roots to the day that Jesus was born and the world evolved. NOBODY can say "my aunt was related to Mary because of my fathers uncles sister, cousins brother twice removed aunts fathers mothers mothers mother" NOBODY!

With all of that being said, Yes, I have spent time in church. A lot of time actually. As a child and young teen I would go to church with my neighbors. We went to what is probably now the largest televised church ever. Lakewood. I love it. I would not mind getting into church now, and having my kids experience it, but I also feel like I do not have to go to church to be a Christian. Though I have never read the bible from cover to cover, I am not totally stupid and oblivious to what it says.

People have told me to read I Corinthians 6:9-11 and said "See, the Bible says that homosexuals will NOT be welcomed into the Kingdom of God." I guess that is the perfect time  to point out that that also means:
  • The sexually immoral. Those that have or do watch porn or have sex before marriage. 
  • Adulters. For those of you who do not know or want to look it up, Matthew 5:27-28 says "27. You have heard it said 'you shall not commit adultery' 28.But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart"
  • Thieves
  • Greedy people. (and we all know people who are greedy)
  • Drunkards. Christians watch football too. Tailgating season is going to be here before you know it. 
  • Slanderers. I am doomed, along with millions of others on FaceBook, blogging sites, and even womens Bible study groups.

After putting it into this perspective, I would  say we all are pretty much screwed according to the Bible.

I am done with my rant about CFA. I think I have only been to a CFA twice. I am not a big fan, but it has absolutely NOTHING to do with the beliefs of the current CEO. I have the same beliefs, but I have also expanded my beliefs.
Not to mention, if I was a fan, I damn sure would not have been eating at one today. Some people are just so ignorant to fall into something that they are not going to benefit from any more than a fully belly from over priced food that is ultimately going to end up in the sewer.




Just not feeling it

Today has been such a blah day. The Hubs had to get up at 5am (now yesterday) and be at work, and he will not be off until probably around 6 or 7, IF he doesn't take another job. I know I have said it a million times, and I am sure I will say it a million more times, but I really do not like when he works 24+ hours at a time. Sure the money is great, but I really enjoy when he is home. Strange as it may seem though, we actually talk more while he is at work that when he is home. lol. Don't get me wrong, we talk while he is home, and we play around, but, I don't know, it's silly.
I also understand why he works likes he does, and yes, it would be helpful if I worked and made a regular paycheck, and says things (never being really serious) about me getting a job, but then at the same time, he knows that we would not have the freedom of doing random, spur of the moment things like we are accustom to. When I did work, I would make in one month (not counting tips) what he makes in less than a week.
I have had some inquires about taking family pictures and engagement pictures, and if I could get this photography gig to pick up, we would be doing good. We want to pay this trailer off within 5 years (we now almost down 1) and then moving out of this hell hole and moving! We want to buy a house. After we get our house we will try to rent out this trailer or sale it, or something. Personally, I don't see us living here another 4 years, but that is just me. We both HATE it and so do the kids. We shall see.

Whoa, seems I have gotten a little of my subject of today...I have done nothing around the house today. Most of the day was spent sleeping and watching television, and then I took a friend and her daughter across town for her daughters softball practice and then back home. Such an exciting day, I know.

I take that back. I have been outside a few times today with the dogs. Lol. We are dog sitting for another friend of mine who is leaving later today for NOLA, and then Thursday her and 20 other family members will be boarding a cruise ship, headed for Cozumel. Oh how I wish I was going with them! I absolutely LOVE cruises, and I know there will be some major partying going on. Watch Carnival Cruise Lines, and Cozumel...You have no clue what is headed your way!

Anyway, until something exciting happens.......

Girlfriends, Good Times, and....

So my weekend that I was all excited about has come and gone. It was fun, just as I expected it to be.

Saturday the Hubs and I took the kids some family's house and they played for a while, and then we left and headed about an hour away from our house to Richmond, Texas to go watch a friends daughter play softball. This girl is an awesome ball player.

After the ball game we headed back home and decided to stop and eat. I don't know about anybody else, but deciding where to eat is always a big ordeal. It has pissed me off to the point of me saying "fuck it, everybody can find their own food at the house" and not stopping anywhere. Well, we decided to go to Hooters. I love Hooters, and the kids have never been and they have been wanting to go, so why not? Well, Dawson, being almost 13 was beyond excited when we walked in. I wish I would have pulled my phone and took a picture of him because it was quite funny, the shit eatin' grin he had on his face. I just busted out laughing.

Sunday was the day that I was most excited for. I was going to see some old friends from school and I could not wait. I told the Hubs that I would take Keigan with me and he insisted that he keep both kids and take them to do something fun and let me go hangout with my girlfriends. Yay! He is such a great man. They (Bob and the kids) took off and went to IKEA, and then Dave & Busters, which the kids have never been there either. I took off and went to my friends parents house. It was just like the old days, we sat around and talked, and laughed and ate some really good food that Becky's mom made for us. A couple of us stayed and talked and laughed until 12:30 in the morning. Now I can't wait for Becky to get to Japan and start writing and posting pictures. I am so excited for her.

I got home from my gathering about 12:45 or so and then I laid in the bed watching television until about 2:30 or so and had to get back up at 5:30 to get Dawson up so he could get ready to go to the Houston Texans Training Camp-Youth Day. He left about 10 minutes after 6 and fell back to sleep and then went and colored my hair, and highlighted a friends hair. Now I am home.

Apparently sometime over the weekend I missed some big ordeal with Chick-fil-A and so I asked what the heck the deal was, on FaceBook. Maybe that was a mistake. lol. So far I have managed to keep a war from starting among the people commenting. For those of you who may not know, I guess the CEO of Chick-fil-A said that he supports traditional marriage and of course the set the gay and lesbian communities in an uproar. I have not asked my best friend (Google) yet what exactly was said, but it seems that a lot of people have very different opinions as to what was said, and what, if any, rights, gay and lesbians should have.

My thoughts on the matter...everybody is entitled to their own opinion, and I personally think that they should have the same rights as "traditional" people. Times have changed. Religion has been pulled out of just about everything that is public, so why the hell should anybody care what someones sexual preference is? I have several gay and lesbian friends. They are no different than me. They either work, or stay home and take care of the house, some of them even have kids, so they take care of their kids. They pay their bills, they bleed the same color that I do, and the love most of them share is a love like you have never seen.
I could go on, and I probably will in a later blog, but right now I have an 8 year old who is being very needy, and for some reason, everybody always wants to eat dinner in the house, so I need to cook.

Just another sleepless night in the hood....

The Hubs is at work, doing one of those LONG shifts...like, he went to work this morning and doesn't plan on getting off of work until Saturday sometime. I hope they finish the ship early. I hate when he works like that.

I am actually looking forward to this weekend! We are going to a BBQ at my aunts house. Or my father in laws house....however you want to look at it. lol Yes, I know it sounds pretty backwoods Arkansas, hillbilly, but it's really not. lol

Anyway, we are going over there for a BBQ for a family day with some family we have not seen in a couple of years. The kids are excited too.

If timing allows, we will also go watch a friends little girl play softball. This girl is awesome and we enjoy watching kids play sports.

But....Sunday...I can not wait until Sunday! Sunday I will get to see some old girlfriends from high school. One of them is about to embark on a new journey in life and will be moving to Japan. While I personally could never up and move to Japan, I know that she is going to love it! This is someone that I truly look up to and that inspires me. SHE is the reason that I have wanted to do photography, and though I have not seen her in forever and a day, it will still be sad to see her go, yet so exhilarating at the same time. Knowing she is getting to have the experience of a lifetime. I think she may get a little bored being a stay home wife, but I expect that she will definitely find ways to pass the time, and I expect to see lots of pictures and I will definitely be following her blog!! I would post the link, but I don't know how she would feel about that....

Yep, the above statement is a status of a 17 year old child (who is sorta like a niece to me) and I can not help but be a little disturbed by every single thing in this status. Ugh. What the hell is wrong with kids today. I promise you, if either one of my kids EVERY try to post some stupid shit like this, or talk like something they are NOT, it WILL be the last they see of FaceBook as long as they live with me, and they will NOT be talking for a while because they would likely need some dental work, do you hear me? 

I totally blame the parents for the way this girl acts. This child quit going to school in JR HIGH and has been a wild child for a long time. She did good while she lived with her dad and stepmom for a while, but then she started hanging with the wrong crowd and ended up moving to her moms because there were no rules. She was not made to get up and go to school. She was not punished in anyway for any of her actions. Nothing. She has been allowed to sleep with MEN since she moved with her mother. She is pregnant by a 24 year old man and apparently her mom sees nothing wrong with it!?!?!

What the hell is wrong with people?

I have a few rants today. Some have been headline news, some maybe just local news here in my area, and some, so far have not even made the news, and one, I know for a fact, won't be on the news. Let me start with that one.

Just a little while ago I had to go to my step dads house to get a crock pot. It is about a 15 minute drive, maybe a little longer, depending on the traffic, or if you are like me and have an addiction to fountain Dr. Pepper from McDonald's. I stop at the McDonald's that is along the way and I wait 15 minutes in the drive thru to just to order my drink, and one for Keigan too, just to get the damn drinks and drive off and then take a drink to find out it was DIET COKE! Puke! I called the idiots at McDonald's something along the lines of stupid fucktards and went on about my business...without my "crack" ( fountain DP) and when I make it to the turn off on the highway, I was stopped because they are putting new black top down on the road. While I am sitting there waiting for the dumb girls to give me the OK to drive through, one of the two women starts cleaning out their ice chest and throwing all the empty coke cans, water bottles and 2 beer cans on the ground! I rolled the window down and said something to her, and then it took everything in my being not to take that nasty ass diet coke out of the cup holder and throw it all over that dumb bitch. Ugh. When I get to the other end of the construction zone, I stop and nicely say something to what appeared to be the supervisor and his response pissed me off even more (but I still didn't throw the damn coke and I wish I would have. That would have been so funny because he was sitting on his ass with a laptop between him and the steering wheel in the AC. I could have just thrown it in his window and drove off.  His response was "And?...Are you with the EPA or something? If not don't worry about it!" There were no phone numbers on the trucks or equipment for me to call, but I am going to look up the company and call and let them know.
Done...I actually just called them and gave them my complaint and they immediately transferred me the CEO of N-Line Traffic Maintenance. He was just as pissed as I was. Hope they all get fired.

On to the next...This whole shooting thing in Colorado. What in the hell would make some dude with clown red (faded) hair, that has a PhD go into a movie theater and start shooting people? I can not fathom this at all. I can not thing of any one thing or combination of things that would get me that worked up, that I would want to take the time and set my apartment up with all these bombs and shit, and then spend all the money on protective gear, guns, ammo, and so on, and then kill all these innocent people. Then to top it all off, this motherfucker doesn't even try to kill himself, or put up a fight with the police! Of course already there is talking about this guy having mental problems. I call BULLSHIT! This piece of shit had this shit planned out. Yeah, I guess he did have some mental disorder, but not to the capacity the media is trying to make it out to be. He knew damn good and well what the fuck he was doing. He knew it the whole time he was planning it out. He knew it the whole time that he was rigging his apartment with all kinds of bombs and shit. He also knew it as he was headed to the theater that night. Does he think he is going to continue to live a long healthy life in prison, or that he will get out on temporary insanity or some shit?
How does someone like this even deserve to be able to see the light of day (the shooting happened at a midnight showing, it was dark outside)? I can honestly say that if I had been the cop taking this bastard to jail, we would have made a pit stop and he would be dead! However, I wasn't that cop, and this man is still alive and well. Unharmed, and eating 3 meals a day. Why? Why is he on suicide watch? If the fucker wanted to kill himself, he would have done it before going to jail. Why is he going to be appointed an attorney that is suppose to HELP him fight his case? How can any attorney defend this monster? Why is this man going to even have a chance to live for years in a prison system that the tax payers are going to have to continue paying for? Ugh. I could keep going about this, but I won't.



NEXT......


This WAS an extended cab F250 super duty.

The following is the news report from abc13 KTRK Eyewitness News Houston.

South Texas officials are investigating a horrific single vehicle accident that killed 14 people and left 9 injured.
The truck those 23 victims were traveling in was impounded to the Goliad Sheriff's Department, where authorities continue to search the vehicle for evidence.
A total of 14 people are confirmed dead and 9 are recovering at four different hospitals in Victoria, Corpus Christi, Beeville and San Antonio.
According to DPS, the accident happened around 6:30pm Sunday off Highway 59, near Goliad. DPS troopers tell us 23 people were traveling in a Ford F250 pickup truck when the driver lost control and smashed into several trees.
At least seven passengers were traveling inside the truck. The others were believed to be in the bed of the truck. Troopers tell us the truck bed was not covered and those victims were ejected.
"In my 38 years as an officer this is one of the worst fatalities I have been to and I have never seen where we had that many in a vehicle," said DPS Trooper Gerald Bryant.
According to US Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, 11 of the dead were male and three were female. Two of those killed were juveniles. ICE added that the deceased are from Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico.
We have also confirmed the driver of the truck was killed and authorities say they have not been able to identify him or any of the other passengers. They say the truck is registered out of Houston, but the owner was not the driver.
At this point, authorities have enough evidence to believe the 23 victims were illegally traveling from Mexico.
"One thing was the manner in which they were being carried in the vehicle," said Trooper Bryant. "It's very common with the way illegal immigrants are transported into the United States and another thing is the lack of identification on the victims involved in this crash."
Border patrol agents are now questioning the survivors of this crash at the different hospitals, trying to learn where they were from and where they were headed. They are continuing to work on identifying all of the victims and notifying their families.
Authorities say it appears the right front tire blew out, causing the truck to veer off the road and strike two trees."
23 people in one fucking truck and nobody had stopped them before they made thus far? I mean, I don't know exactly how far into Texas they actually were, but I do know they were far enough to have gone through more than 1 fucking check point! How do you fit that many people in a damn truck? Fucking idiots!!!

My next issue, I have yet to see on any news, in any news papers, or any police reports.
My brother in law is a manager at a Radio Shack and they were robbed at gun point Saturday night. I think I may have already posted something about this, but still, it really pisses me off.
From my understanding it was my brother in law and one other employee working and there were 2 customers in the store. A back man comes into the store and pulls a gun and takes all the money in the store, and apparently all the money that the people had. He took all of their cell phones and then made them go to the back of the store where my brother in law was made to unlock a cabinet that holds all the iPhones and whatever else, and then everybody was locked in a bathroom. I am so thankful that nobody was hurt, but I think I am really more pissed off at the fact that the security cameras in the store do not really record, so there is no video of the suspect. Why would you not have the cameras recording? That is ignorant. This store has been broken into before....Nothing worth anything was stolen, but you would think that after that, they would want to make sure the shit is recording. I do not know if anything has been done or if they have found this man or not. I was told that one of the customers phones that the man took had a GPS locator on it, and the phone was supposedly located, but I have no clue really. I have not talked to my brother in law personally. I do know for a fact....That would have been my last night to work for Radio Shack!!!


There ya have it...my rants for the day.
