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. 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 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.

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!!!

 2. If you could bring one person back to life, who would it be and why? My Mom. No doubt about it.

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.

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!

 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!

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 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.


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.......
