Well, I guess that makes it official. I am a naughty gal! I wonder sometimes if I should pick a focus and stick to it, like Homeschooling only, Karma only, but then I remember that the reason I set this whole thing up was to keep up with my peeps that are far away. I miss ya’ll! I have loved getting to meet other people through my blog. Am I jealous when I look at some blogs and they are so professional looking, and have had like a million hits? Sure. Do I want this thing to be work? Naw. I like having a rather innocent way of venting about various stuff, and maybe occasionally inspire folks. It is kinda like tattoos. At different points in your life, if you were to pick a tattoo that truly reflected all that you were at that point in time, get it, then in 10 year, go to get another, you would probably wind up with very different tattoos. My life is that way. One week I am all peaceful and serene, the next I am ready to head to the hills! I have learned so much about myself, my values, and my family in the last few months, and though it has been hard, I have survived and grown. I hope that all those that were involved can say the same thing. The bonus would be if those around me were able to have the same growth from hearing the stories, and not having to really feel the pain. Yesterday Karma Husband had two of his patients die during one 8 hour shift. Both should be alive except for the actions of the adults around them. I can hear the stories, I can feel the pain, I can hug my babies, learn from the mistakes of the other parents, and go out there and try to do better by the world. I hope you all can take my recent lessons and do the same.

Go hug someone you haven’t hugged in a while or at least give positive words of encouragement (only if really deserved) to someone. It will lift you and you those around you up to a level of peace that we all should have. ∞ 

Now, if I can just not use some of the “naughty” words I have used on my blog, my rating might drop to a “G” or something, but do I want it to??????♥

Crazy update!

June 21, 2007 at 5:26 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 4 Comments

Here is an update on the crazy that is my world. Couple number 3 is still having fun and excitement. The boy’s father finally caved after his son spent a week in jail and took out a loan to post his bail. The son got out, went to his home and promptly got into a fight with his wife because she “left” him in jail for a week. She told him to get his sh*t and get out. He took his most valuable items, his bowling ball and his dog, and went to hang with the fellows who were involved with the crimes that got him arrested in the first place. Sigh. bowling_austin_dartbowl_895720_l1.jpgSencond crazy up date is on the alcoholic brother in law. OK, he left a week ago. Dropped off at the airport with a 6 pack already in him, and a pocketful of money. Well, no one has heard from him for a week, and then he calls him mom in England and tells her he got off the plane in Dallas (a week ago) and collapsed. He told her he has been in the hospital the whole time. He also said that his money had been stolen. Not his passport mind you, a very hot commodity to have a British passport, just his money.image1.jpg He said he was calling with the help of a social worker from the Salvation Army and that he wanted to come home (to England). She buckled and bought him a ticket back to England (700 British pounds).image2.jpg I think she bought the story. As a friend said, “You can tell BIL is not a parent if he thinks anyone is going to buy that story!” Well, now we can see why his games work, well, cause they work on his mom and sister! These are the same family members that kept telling us how much they did not want him around, and they he could not stay with them, that they were through helping him and that he was not welcome to come around them. They are the same folks that kept freakin’ calling us EVERYDAY all week to find out if we had heard anything. image5.jpgDespite our repeatedly telling them, “He is a 42 year old man who can take care of himself. Quit worrying about him. You told him not to contact you and he isn’t. Be happy. If we hear anything, we will let you know.” They kept calling. Then, when they did hear something, they called, left a message that he was in the hospital in Dallas, and then didn’t call back. We returned their call after work and it was 3 am there. Sorry for the late call, but you left us hanging. Then, at 3am our time, the sister calls to tell us that mom is upset cause we were laughing at her during our 3am when we called her. The fact that the kids were eating spaghetti noodles for dinner (funniest damn thing you could ever see!) doesn’t register. It must be us evil folks laughing at her. She wanted us to know that mom was upset, and she woke us up at 3 am to tell us this. Yeah. No manipulation there, huh? Sigh. 374448_172135621.jpgThese folks are nuts! I think I am gonna take Tony’s excellent Ganome advice and change the locks, buy that Yurt I have always wanted, and move to Colorado ( I hear it is real pretty there!). 579771_mongolia_11.jpg

 Now, take that and go out and be grateful for your relatively normal lives all you great folks! Peace and love!

How are things with your family?

June 18, 2007 at 4:35 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 3 Comments

At the obligatory family gathering for Father’s day, I discovered that my entire family has lost their freakn’ minds! It is crazy. In one family we have;

04_17_1-credit-cards_web1.jpg*One couple, married for 16 years, that both have lost their long term jobs this year due to stupidity. Both of them then decided that they like collecting unemployment so they collected as long as they could before finding new jobs. They are now in a dire financial situation as they have never had the ability to tell their kids no. Sigh.

terry_male_cafe_783410_l1.jpg*Couple two has been together for 12 years and the husband just came out of the closet. Well, sorta. He thinks he might be gay. He has not acted on it with a man, but has been frequenting gay bars and obsessing with gay porn/chat rooms for a year. Who knows? They have little kids. Good news is that the wife is being as nice and supportive as she can, despite her anger at being deceived for the last year or so that he has known.

crib_bars_hands_662312_l1.jpg*Couple three has been together for 13 years and the whole time there has been mutual verbal abuse, and on his behalf, he hits her, drug use and criminal activity. He has been on probation for a while, and then he just managed to get himself thrown in jail this week for a huge litany of offences from misdemeanors to felonies. The bail is set so high that no one can come up with it to get him out. He called home and his almost 13 year old answered his call from jail. She is devastated that Daddy is in jail. Horrible situation with little hope for a happy outcome.


Now none of this even includes the normal drama of my family, this is just the stuff that has happened in the last 3 weeks. That is right, 3 weeks. Jeeze. So, how bout ya’ll? Any excitement out there? Any advice for the happy couples? I am thinking of taking a line from Angry Black Bitch who once wrote, (cover your eyes Alice and Shana!)

“As a matter of fact everything lost its motherfucking mind Friday so this bitch had to shake the dust off of the merciless rod of correction and re-establish my authority!”

So well said Angry Black Bitch! (http://angryblackbitch.blogspot.com/) Let me go find my personal “rod of correction!”

Not all of us like Father’s Day

June 17, 2007 at 4:19 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 3 Comments

I always hate the imposed holidays of celebrating people. Mother’s and Father’s Day are two of the biggies. When I was first estranged from my parents I was working at the mall. Folks would ask me what I had planned for the “day.” What on Earth was I to say? So many folks have total creeps for parents, other have deceased parents. There are single parents out there who are expected to be planning something for the parent who left them as single parent. Contrary to what many folks think, this is not a happy day for everyone.I wish that we all could just remember to thank those that are special to us everyday and to commit random acts of kindness to those around us, instead of having some mandated day telling us we must break our bankbook to prove that we think someone is worthy. Valentines Day makes me mad about that too. Sigh. Angry post over. I am off to be obligatory nice to the Father figures around me.

(Added note, I do not celebrate Mother’s Day (Valentine’s Day) by asking for gifts or anything. This is not about not doing for others, it is about not liking the holiday itself even if I am the one to benifit.)

The Brother in law is gone

June 14, 2007 at 2:36 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 3 Comments

Finally. Really. We dropped him off at the airport yesterday. He says he is going back to England, but we are not sure. He has a girlfriend here and his best guy friend convinced him he was not an alcoholic and that instead he is a binge drinker. I guess he didn’t see the six beers consumed before noon yesterday. Anyway, he is gone. He left his room trashed. We found old food in drawers, trash everywhere, dirty sheets. Uck!

The worst part was the way he left. He told the kids he would be here all day on Tuesday, and he didn’t come home at all. They cried. He then showed up at 7 am Wednesday morning and said he just wanted to say by to the kids then he was going to the airport. I was like “hell no!” That ain’t gonna happen. You are gonna spend some time with them so they are less traumatized by your leaving. He didn’t. We had a lunch date with good friends. He was invited, but he said he wanted to stay home and drink his beer. We told him we would see him when we got back, he said yeah, and we were off. When we returned, he was gone. He told Karma Man that he had told us goodbye and asked him to take him to the airport. He was last seen smoking a cigarette outside the airport. I personally doubt he left the country. I think he had someone pick him up and he is going to be hiding out here. Whatever. At this point, whatever. My problem was that I was the one stuck telling the kids that he had gone. That man has some serious bad Karma coming his way. Now I just gotta go clean his room. Where did I put the rubber gloves????

Healthy and smart

Sometimes I feel so old and frumpy, then I read something like this.

http://seehere.blogspot.com/2006/08/celebrities-without-makeup.html

I feel so much better! I know that my health is improving with my 60 lb weight loss (another 20 to go) and my exercise and that is what is important! I also am happy that my mind is sharp and I am willing to learn new things. Beauty fades, stupid is forever!

Hobby or Illness?

June 10, 2007 at 7:19 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 2 Comments

There is a very fine line between “hobby” and “mental illness.” Dave Barry This is proven when the other day I found myself whittling crochet hooks out of found wood to use on my recycled plastic-bag rugs. Sigh.By the way, they work great!

And the truth shall be told

June 9, 2007 at 5:14 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 3 Comments

Since my Stepping off the Spaceship gal wants details, I will give them where I can!

1 I have smoked cigarettes and pot. And yes, I did inhale. Nuff said. Really, that is kinda that. I quit smoking cigs the day I found out I was pregnant (surprise!) with Karma Girl.

2 I have read Playboy for the articles. It was when Prince was hot and they had Apollonia for the centerfold. I was a HUGE Prince fan so I went to the Texaco and got the magazine. It was neat to get to read up on the supposed girlfriend of Prince.

3 I have been married twice. Sad track record there. Not going to get married again though! If this marriage ends for any reason, I am gonna go out and enjoy life with no constraints of keeping my man happy. Just me and the kids and some world travel!

4 I have ridden topless in a car. It was at night with another girl, but still. One of those things of “why not?!?” It was fun and scary, but so worth it. I recommend everyone try it at least once in their life. It isn’t fair men can ride with out shirts on, but we are to cover up. Wind on the breasts is a good thing!

5 I have worn a bikini out to the lake in front of people and lost the bottoms while diving. You got it! This one is a lie! I have never worn a bikini! E-Gads! Can you imagine?!?

6 I caught myself on fire while pretending to be Laura Ingalls in the woods behind our house. Luckily I knew enough to stop-drop-and roll! My shirt was all burned up, but I only had superficial burns. I didn’t tell my mom, I just hid the shirt and noted to my self not to try that again!

7 I have been to a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert and stood in the floor area. I even helped pass body surfers till one landed on me. O-yeah! I coulda reached out and touched Flea at one point! I got hit in the ear with a thrown pager (made me bleed) and then had the surfer land on me. It really hurt my neck. Dumba$$ came from behind.

8 I slammed my car into a utility pole outside a police station, putting the electricity out to the jail. Yup. That was me. The police were the first on the scene. Very scary for a 16 year old. I didn’t get a ticket though. I think they took one look at my dad’s face when he arrived and decided I was gonna be punished enough.

OK, that was fun! Any takers for a tag?

Which of these things are not true?
