Saturday afternoon

    Good afternoon everyone. Today has been pretty good so far. At least nothing to bad or heck even exciting is going on around here today. Jared and his buddy went riding around on there skateboards. It always makes me nervous b/c Jared doesn't have a helmet. He called earlier adn was at the park with the ducks and then a few minutes ago they called and was getting a snow cone and enjoying it. He said that they were coming back here to get there bikes but they haven't shown up yet..Im getting worried and fixing to call him. They are probably just goofing off eating there snocones but I still worry.
    the little kids are outside playing and enjoying the weather. I thought that they said on the radio that it might rain today but so far its like partly sunny and doing alright with no signs of rain.
    I wouldn't really mind it raining, I like it when it rains. I don't want it to get that messy or that rough out but I like it when it just pours and is nice .. sounds funny but its relaxing so to speak, at least for me.
    There have already been talk of tornadoes all over the place and I just hope that people stay safe and no one gets hurt. I haven't been watching the news to much or to closely lately, it just mean and violent things on it 3/4 of the time and I just don't want to hear it. I want them to come up with something good for a change. People doing good, people giving or people helping others, not all the meanness we can do without hearing about all that for a few days, I am sure no one would mind hearing nice things for a change! They should do that on the weekends when the kids are out of school and are flipping through channels, they should show and tell ntohing but good things.
    So I heard that Obama is going back up in the polls, not that he ever even went down but is going up more and more as the days and weeks and months go by its Obama this and obama that. Hillary is in it but its a climb up a upward hill for her. And McCain, well I don't know about him, hes just sitting back not doing or saying to much since its really Obama and Hillary in the race for now.
    Last night I flipped on the tv and I watched Jeff Foxworthy on the Glenn Beck show. I enjoyed listening to him for a few minutes. See they need to have good wholesome interviews and talk shows etc about people like him. Good people not anything bad and all the scandal and law breaking and idiots in office that are cheating and going out on there spouses is just Ridiculous to say the least. Its just a damn shame that they do that when they are in office. If they were just a regular ordinary everyday Joe like the rest of us, and then went out on there spouses no one would hear about it or care and its sad when they are popular and in the public eye and they go out on them and then they make fools of there selves and put there spouses in the public eye when they don't need or want to be b/c its a shame that the press has to be all up in there business!
    I just heard on the radio that "Punky Brewster" just gave birth to another baby, a baby girl. Congrats to her. I remember watching that show everyday and every time that it came on. Loved it. Hadn't heard to much from her or about her, but I am glad that shes doing good and had another baby...how sweet. I bet she will be just as beautiful as her mommy!
    Guess thats about it for now. Oh I just want to add something else really quick, one of my friends spent the night in the hospital the other night, glad to hear that shes alright now. I hope that she is going to be alright, I feel for her. I found out that shes diabetic and I know what thats like, my first step dad was/is diabetic and my best friend Brian is also diabetic along with a few others so I know that its tough and can lead to problems more then we have. Anyway, I just wanted to wish her the very best and I hope that she gets to feeling better soon. I wish that she didn't have to go through all of the stress that shes going through. Her son is just being a little childish acting like he doesn't care b/c of the girl that hes with and shes calling all the shots now and is using and abusing him just like ALL the other guys out there that have dated her...he will wake up soon...lots of hugs...

Friday evening

    Good evening everyone. I hope that you all are having a great evening. Nothing to much going on around here. The boys are playing outside in the backyard. Sean and Chris got grounded earlier today and so they stayed in and were grounded to there beds for about an hour of time out. They BOTH left the yard where I couldn't see them so they got grounded from going outside and a time out for an hour to sit and think. It worked they did and they said that they were sorry...scared me to death nearly when I looked out and they weren't anywhere in site! They thought that since Jared was running around the house and across the street etc with his friend, they thought that they could to but they knew better b/c I have ALWAYS told them stay in the yard! They simply didn't listen so they got in trouble. They are outside now, they listened and were being have during there time out so I let them back out with a stern warning NOT to go out of the yard again. This day and age I don't even like Jared running around! Hes a big boy compared to the other two and I let him b/c I don't want him always couped up in the house and not going out with his friends b/c I am scared of the world and the meaness sometimes that goes on in it. So he goes and stays only on this street though, if he decides to go any further either by bike or foot, he tells me and he checks in.
    I am bored and tired and so I was looking for games to play and I played some online but that got boring so I have downloaded Shopmania that I played awhile back and beat the game, figured its fun and I can try to beat it again, took me awhile last time and Jared liked playing it to.
    I played Westward earlier to, that game is fun. I can't wait for the 2nd one to come out, as a matter of fact they said on the forum next week!!! You can guarentee that I will be playing it on the trial and I am sure if I can on the first I will be buying the thing or might just have to wait til it comes out on BigFishGames where I have the credit that I haven't spent yet or on RealArcade I have credits to that I haven't spent yet.
    That show your mama don't dance comes on tonight on Lifetime so I am thinking of watching it and then my soaps later on tonight since I didn't watch them earlier today.
    Have a great evening and weekend everyone..hugs

Almost Friday again!!

    Good evening So today went by really fast. I really can't believe that tomorrow is already Friday again! I swear it doesn't seem like a week has gone by yet. And in the next couple of days is Easter already?? Weird. I can't believe that its this early this year. I remember it coming on the 8th of April b/c thats one of my cousins birthdays and I remember it being on the 16th of April b/c that is my daughter and a friend of mines birthdays but I don't ever remember it being this early in the year. Funny and strange how those things work out like they do.
    So lets see what else is going on. Not to much around here. Talked or well e-mailed one of my friends that I haven't talked to in a little while on yahoo today, didn't message him, he e-mailed me and went from there. It was nice hearing from him and knowing that hes alright. Good to hear from him, hes doing great, moving on from things in the past and having a great life. I am so happy for him, he deserves to be happy. Good luck to him and his new woman :)
    I hope that all my friends are doing great and having a wonderful week. We don't have any plans or well any "big" plans for Easter. Just staying home, if its nice, I might take the kids to the park or something otherwise nothing special. If my grandmother was closer we would of probably of went over to her house and my aunts like we used to but now since were all spread out all over the place, we just don't get together that much. Maybe once a year if that. My mom mentioned yesterday when she called something about going to the Wildlife Refuge for my daughter's birthday but I don't know if we can or will. Its nothing set in stone yet and with the gas prices and things, just don't know yet. If the gas keeps going up thats gonna suck for people like us that live from one paycheck to the next, or at least for now we do. That should soon and will soon change. I am doing the best that I can for the family and I don't want to continue telling my kids no to school year books etc b/c it costs to much. Jared already missed out on the chance to buy a year book at his school but the damn things were $70 each!!!!!! I have NEVER ever had to pay more then I think maybe $30 at the highest but double that and then some...NO WAY! He acted like he didn't care to much about it, but I know that it sucks not being able to get one but dammit for that price they should have color everything in it and coupons and things to I mean GOOD LORD! I don't really think that to many people are goign to spend $70 on a freaking year book. I will get him one next year, just save up the money for it or he can work and pay for it. That was just a little to steep for me. Hell thats the water bill and some left over!! Or well since our water bill doubled this month, thats the phone bill with 2 lines and then some left over!!! Ridiculous!
    I want him to get out this summer and go mow lawns and make him some money. I hope that he wants to get up and out there and do it. I think that hes for the most part, shy like I am at first and wants to do it but just can't go out there and door to door asking so him and his buddy that have been hanging out, I bet that they two can go out and go to houses and do the lawns and make some money for the both of them. Hes a good kid. I can't believe that in 10 days my baby is going to be 15 years old!!!! Where the heck has time gone??
    Anyway, this year is just freaking flying by...Hope that you all stay safe and have a great night and Friday/weekend...hugs

Happy Birthday to me :)

    Good morning everyone. I am up still...so its after 1am and I am still up and not very tired as of yet. Today is my 35th birthday. I was born at 6:36am. 5 years ago today is when the war with Iraq started and 5 years ago tonight is when me and one of my best friends Brian went to Bon Jovi's concert that was in Dallas. It was an AWESOME concert of course!! I wanted to go soooo bad this year to one of them either in Dallas or OK City but not sure that I will now..depressing but thats life...so oh well maybe Sandy will win us tickets and then I will go and see him...maybe she will..
    Anyway, nothing much going on, just up and not sleepy yet was but not now. Me and Sandy got to talking on the phone and now back on messenger and Im just not that tired anymore.
    I am checking e-mails and saving a TON of pics and stats from the groups that I joined the other day. I love em all.  But I am doing better now, b/c now when I save them, I got to my photobucket and put them on there then delete them so that I don't take up a ton of room and so I don't forget and delete them before putting them on my photobucket like the ones of Sean the other day I thought I put on there and didn't and ended up deleting them and he was soo cute with the homemade purse that he made!! LOL...He did a good drawing on it to but its gone darn it..can't believe they got deleted...he loves to make things. He has been drawing on my erase board thing in here where I have my schedules and such and he draws me things and leaves me messages, all the kids leave messages like I love ya mom and happy birthday etc...they are sweet and great kids :)

Rainy Tuesday

    Good evening everyone. I hope that each and everyone of you had a great day today. Mine was alright. Had to get out in the icky rainy weather, didn't like that to much, but gotta do whatcha gotta do.
    Jared and his buddy went riding today to the mall and back home, he had left his game boy sp over at his friends house the other night when he spent the night there and so his friend rode his bike over here today and gave it back to him. Then they took off and rode to the mall. That kid LOVES riding his bike all over town, Jared on the other hand isn't to use to it but likes it alright I guess. They went riding when it was sprinkling or not raining at all.
    I got out and went to the water company and then to the cable company. Found out that for some reason the water bill is doubled this month! Intstead of being $50-55 it was $110!!!! Thats just ridiculous! So I came home and griped and said enough is enough stop wasting water! leon has a habit of leaving the water running in the kitchen and walking off into the other room and now its costing me double my bill which is stupid! Hes a freaking grown up for goodness sakes! He should know better!!
    So I have been updating my myspace page tonight, I took a new pic of me and my daughter last night. I am trying to get the boys to take one with me but they are being butts and don't like taking pictures and hubby either..I don't honestly think that me and hubby have even ONE picture together! The dingbat! I am going to sneak and do it hell while hes sleeping if I have to..lol
    So anyway I found a few layouts that I liked, a love one, then a roses one, then Harry Potter one and now I have left it on Dirty Dancing...I love that movie and haven't seen it in awhile but still love it. I looked and looked and can't find really to many that I liked the looks of once it got on my page. I like the DD one though.
    So lets see what else, well I am checking e-mail constantly. I am in a couple of the yahoo Freecycle and cheapcycle groups and a few minutes ago a lady listed a TON of things that I wanted and I e-mailed her and told her but darn it haven't heard back from her yet. She said that she added more in a 2nd posting and said that she was up but she didn't reply to me dang it and I wanted the stuff, I need the stuff!!
    Lets see what else, I applied for and sent off the paperwork for Ver-A-Fast, another job here at home calling people about the yellowpages etc and they pay weekly and I am hoping to start tomorrow night if they get the paperwork and email me that they got it. I want to do the training this week get it over with and then maybe get a little check next week from this week. We will see. I went out and applied at a few more places today. I think that maybe I just need to get out there in a work place and work since I am stuck here 24/7's. I applied at  3 more places so I am hoping that Taco Bell calls again and this time I can go since I am not sick this week!
    Not to much else going on. I am enjoying the kids being home this week for Spring break although they haven't really gotten the chance to play outside that much since its been messy.
    OMG Yesterday the kids were out playing and Leon was in the house, I had went somewhere and came back and I came back to a crying/screaming Sean coming in from the back yard, one of the kids from next door BIT Sean!!!!!! on the leg!!!!! He pulled his pants down to let me see and there is a huge bruise and a big teeth mark!!!!!!!!! Nearly drew blood, didn't but you could see it was trying!!!!! I WAS PISSED! At first I thought kids are kids and then I thought wait a minute if my son did that to someone I would expect them to say something to me and my son, I would want to know. So I went outside and asked the kids that was out there if Sean did anything to provoke the little boy and 3 of them said no, another kid, and Jesse and Chris all said no and the little boys sister was out there but she didn't say anything. So I asked them where the little boy was at that did it, they said he went home ( next door inside) so I said alright but when he comes back out, someone come let me know. So they did and a few minutes later I went outside in the back yard and I said are you the one that bit my son and he didn't answer but the sister hollered yes. So I told him he had no reason to be biting my son or anyone else for that matter and he could stay home in his yard if he was going to act like that. I told him off pretty good he was being snotty and rude and I didn't like it. I told him that if I ever caught him over at my house again and being mean that I would go have a talk with his mom and dad and he was like yea right. RUDE kid! By this time the mom comes out of the front of the house and walks around the side of the house and says what is it and I told her that 3 kids told me that he bit my son and has a bruise and teeth marks on my sons leg and I don't appreciate it and she said oh well he came in and said that the little boy held his neck and I said well I asked all of the kids that were out here and they said that my son didn't do anything to him, so whatever but if my son ever did anything for them to come tell me NOT to take it into his own hands and BITE my son!!!! She said well I told him he shouldn't of bit him and she acted like it wasn't that big of a deal!!!! I would of had Sean in the house and grounded him and hollered at him for doing that if he would of done it. There is NO reason for that crap to be going on and if they don't like it then stay the hell in there own damn yard!!!!! Some people!! Leon said I bet there neighbors are glad they moved and I said yea bet so, lucky us!!! So I can't wait til we get a chance to MOVE!
    So yea that was yesterday .. really fun day! Hope that everyone has a great rest of the week...hugs

Remove the Politically correct Blinders and open your eyes

Hey there, I did NOT write this, I copied it off of a cafe moms journal post..just wanted to share it with you all...

Just so you know where I am coming from:  There have been alot of debates on the candidates and what they believe.  There is a lot of conservative vs. liberal bashing going on in many groups on CafeMom.  

Perhaps a few years ago, we could have lived in shades of grey.  Due events on Sept 11, 2001, we can no longer operate in shades of grey, the world is now black and white and will remain so until terrorism is defeated.

In this election cycle, we have 3 legitimate candidates who could end up being POTUS - Hillary Clinton, John McCain and Barak Obama.  All three of these candidates have people who are 100% in support of them.  All three of them have people who are 100% opposed to them.  There are also a lot of people who are on the fence if you will - people who do not like any of the candidates before them.

We have some major issues facing us - illegal immigration, terrorism (both internal and external), health care (free market or government supplied), a stagnant economy, the whole petroleum issue, global climate change, education, the home mortgage crisis et cetera.  All of the candidates have ideas on how to remedy these issues.  Just because the candidates state that they will do something does not mean that they will.  Politicians like to make promises they will not, nor cannot, keep.  Politicians no longer listen to their constituents, they listen to Political Action Committees and the people who will give them the most money.

We are no longer governed by the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.  We are governed by a small minority of people who think that they know what is best for the billions who live in the US.  Most of them seem to believe that we are too stupid to save us from ourselves.

We all need to open our eyes and realize that what the media, politicians and business leaders are telling us is not necessarily the whole truth.  It is their version of that truth.  We need to remember that history is written by the winners. 

I am calling on every person here to look carefully at what you are reading, seeing and hearing and think for yourself!  Find multiple forms of news media (conservative, liberal, christian, neutral) and find the common thread among those stories and you will be nearing the truth.  All media is biased in one direction or another. 

If you agree with me, vote this post popular so everyone can see it.

Thinking about drinking

    Hey there everyone. Well, I am considering going out and getting a 4 pack of wine coolers and a single beer for hubby, not sure if I will yet..still thinking about it. He just came in here and asked if I was going to for my birthday but I don't know why he said for my birthday, i have never drank before in all of the 13 years that we've been married on my birthday so why start this year??! Anyway, I might just go out tonight and do it. Not sure, Jared is at his friends house spending the night and if he found out, he would kick my butt b/c hubby used to have an issue with drinking, not me but hubby and Jared doesn't want me to be like hubby was back then a decade ago. I won't ever let myself get like that, I don't even drink on New years or haven't lately in the past couple of years so I don't have to worry about that. I might just go and get us something for the simple fact that I can and it won't do that much to us. Just need a night of relaxation I guess. Which of course I can find other ways to relax, not sure what hubby's reasoning behind it is. I won't buy him more then one single beer, I am NOT going to allow it and thats that. And we wouldn't be drinking while the kids are up, they have to be in bed sound asleep before I would dare take a sip of anything. I don't get into the hard liquor stuff either. Now if I had a blender, I might make me a strawberry dacqueri or something but I haven't ever done that before either, my friends have for me back in the day.
    Anyway, I am going to go and upload some more pictures to my photobucket and delete some others and then see if I feel/want to get out and get something to drink, maybe just sodas just don't know if I am in the mood to drink or not....have a good night everyone...hugs

Free Music online nothing to download

    Good evening everyone. I came across this site by accident looking for 80's music online. Its called Pandora.com and you don't have to download anything and you can pick what you listen to and its all free. I am listening to Metalica on it now. I liked a few of there songs and I like the one that is playing even though, I don't remember it to good. I need something to boom tonight. My station on the radio is playing instrumental music and another radio station has talk on it so I just decided to look for something online and found this. So check it out if you like to listen to free music online without downloading things. Have a great night...happy listening!!

Sunday Evening

    Good evening everyone. I hope that you all are having and had a great weekend. My kids are out next week for Spring Break so at least I don't have to get up early early in the morning, maybe get to sleep in for an hour...maybe.
    I watched the end of Home Make Over. ... it was cool. Then I watched the Big Give and I liked it. They did a lot of good for all the kids. Doing the two schools was fun for them and Andre and Tony Hawk how can you not have fun with them. As for next week, WOW now that is something that I could do and have fun doing, having 24 hours to give away $100,000 cash! I think that I could do that without a problem. I would go to different organizations and to some separate families and help them out. Maybe go to a homeless shelter and help out some people and give them a couple thousand each, that would get them out of the shelter and in a place of there own for a couple of months I would think and give them time to get there stuff together and find a job and live in there own home. I can't even imagine being homeless. I have always been fortunate enough to make it on my own and with a family that has to be tended to, I just can't imagine not making it. I mean heck, for us, if I absolutely had to , I would put us in a 2 bedroom, one room for the boys, one for Jesse and then instead of us having a room, we could just stay in the front room IF we ever had to save money and get to where we just couldn't afford the 3 bedroom. I think that were doing alright, were not doing great but then again were lucky in so many ways to. Our kids are healthy and they are good kids and kids that don't get in trouble and don't run around the neighborhood and cause trouble. Jared is a good boy to. Hes spending time with his friends on the weekends or at least 1 day of the weekend, usually not both. I don't think that he needs to spend that much time with them considering he spends time with them at school some to. This afternoon one of his buddies called and he went over there for a little while then called to ask if he could spend the night, I don't mind as long as his parents are ok wit it. I think that the boys get along good and I am glad and excited that Jared has a good friend like Troy. I am just glad that they have each other to hand out with. They hang out and then a couple of other kids to sometimes.
    I want us to move into a bigger house, one where Jared can have his own room and don't have to share with his little brothers and so I am hoping that in May or probably June we can get out of here and look for a bigger better home. I want an office, but I want to get a house with a room for Jared so that he can have his friends over without having to worry about his little brothers coming in his room pestering while his friends are over.
    I am hoping to move, still here in town but into a better house and not have to sign another lease. Its up in May. So the first of May we will have to sign or tell him were looking to move. The news and the Irs site say that the checks/stimulus package money is supposed to start going out in early May, so lets hope that that happens and lets hope that I am reading it right and they will be sending out the payments via direct deposit since we did our taxes and got out other refund direct deposit I hope that they do it fairly quickly. One of my other friends posted that it wouldn't start til like June or after that but I haven't seen that schedule anywhere, I saw that the irs site keeps saying early May so not sure which its going to be. I am thinking that the early May is for the direct depositing and then the other dates is for the sending out of the checks. because if its for the direct deposit to, then it won't be until Aug or so that we get our money and I don't want that. I don't want to stay here and sign the lease I want to start looking and find something better. We will see.
    So lets see what else is going on, hmm well my birthday is this week...yay..I will be the big 35. It was on my birthday 5 years ago that the war with Iraq started. While me and Brian and lots of others were at a Bon Jovi concert on March 19th in Dallas, we started the war on Iraq that night. While we were hollering and screaming at the top of our lungs singing songs and having fun, others were screaming around the world b/c they were being bombed and hurt!!!! My goodness I can't believe that its been that long already.
    Also that year later on in June or July or so, we had our high school reunion..LOVED it...had a blast. I want the pictures from that night but haven't had the chance to get them developed yet. I want to drive to TX and go to Brian's and get the film and get it all developed and find the pictures from that night and get them after all these years. I need to see those pictures. I want to see them again. I miss my friends. I love them each and every one. I have found or they have found me on myspace, still a few others that haven't been found, but I will keep looking until I do find them and one day I will.
    Hugs to you all..have a great and safe week...

Bon Jovi Sunday

        I am calling this one, Bon Jovi Sunday since I have been and still am blasting my Bon Jovi music all day long. I went to there web site, and I saw them and heard them tell about a thing called I love my town and you have to make a video with there song in the background. Crap if I thought that I could do it I would in a heartbeat. I don't have a video camera or else I would go for it! I love them and I would literally have a heart attack if they were to come here to my town! I know that they are going to be in Dallas in mid April and then the next day in OK City or vice versa, I wanted to go to one or both and now I don't think that I will be able to go to either one. ... pisses me off. I love them SO much and they don't go on tour all the time and the last time they were on tour, back 5 years ago, they were in Dallas on my birthday and one of my best friends Brian took me and I had a blast with him for my 30th birthday!! I wish that I could do that again. I would do nearly anything to go again to the Dallas one and have Brian go with me. I think its like a Tuesday night or so when they will be in Dallas or it might of been a Monday night, I bet that he would go with me if I got us tickets, but I can't now and that pisses me off...unless of course I go and work my butt off and they still have tickets for crappy seats then we might go. I don't honestly care WHERE the seats are..its the just the fact of being there would be awesome. I made him, Brian, a Bon Jovi cd with there newest one, Lost Highway and I sent it to him, I am hoping that he got it by now. I sent it out awhile back.
    So lets see what else, not to much, watching or well rather listening to them on there site right now, they are playing Make a Memory, LOVE that song...Love the video to..they did an awesome job with it and Lost Highway and Til we ain't strangers anymore with LeAnn Rimes..love that song and the video to.
    Anyway, I love them, they are my number 1 band and always will be. I have a poster and tshirt and I wish that I had more, oh and a key chain. I want to go to the concert so bad, I can taste it. I love you all Bon Jovi...stay strong, be safe...hugs
