"Struck a Cord?"

From all the immature comments, emails & tweets I received yesterday (I got some very nice supportive E-mails too... can't forget those ladies), I guess people either A) didn't read ALL of yesterdays blog so they missed the part that said "LETS BE MATURE HERE..." -or- B) they [chose to] overlooked the part that said "LETS BE MATURE HERE..." -or- C) thought I was talking about them... directly & it somehow angered you and "struck a cord" in you.

My guess is a mix of B & C, b/c all of us are old enough to act mature, whether it happens or not is another thing entirely . I WAS NOT talking about anyone couple in particular, if you think I was talking about YOU, Get a grip, my world DOES NOT revolve around YOU, nor does my writing.

Well maybe the lady I over heard at the store last week (when I started yesterday's blog...last week). She gave me the idea b/c she was saying "...well Jim and I have been married for almost 2 years and by my "plan" I need to start for the baby. We just put an offer on a house and we can bring our puppy home from the breeder next weekend. Her mother, I assume, said "Diane dear your so young what's the rush, you're only 24, 25 in Dec. Slow down enjoy Jim and the dog for a while. Enjoy your new job, not many are lucky enough to walk out of college and land a great job." she replied "Yes I know but I have a plan... 2 yrs then a baby... we put in that offer... I want it all, my 2 kids, house and everything before I am 30" The older woman finished the convo by saying "Di do those things you wanted to do like Ireland & Egypt before you have kids... you can board a dog. You can't board children. You will have it all but what's the rush?" Then it was my turn to pay for Emmys diapers. So I am not sure as to what Diane said.

I felt as if I had heard enough. I hear it every single day, From people in my everyday life. I write my blogs from the POV of a 23yr old SINGLE MOTHER, who's pregnancy was unplanned.

My blog is strictly my opinion (unless other wise stated). I don't write them for anyone, I write them for myself. I love EVERY SINGLE ONE of my readers (yes, even the ones who can't control their comments/typing finger)

I am about to put myself through grad school... life is about to CHANGE drastically for me & E. I hope you all stay with us to live out this crazy experience. If not and you feel so strongly against everything I say I understand if you stop following. It is not my intention to hurt anyone.

I leave you with this... If yesterdays blog "struck a cord" in you... it must have for a reason. You might want to evaluate things to figure out that reason & why someone's opinion in their blog got to you the way it did.

Thx for sticking with me [us]... the journey has just begun!

"Slow Down"

There isn't a set age to get married, to have kids, the dog, the house the SUV, the CAREER, the whole "picture" if you will. Every person/couple is different.

The first thing is Marriage. If you live with your S/O, I believe it's the same as being married w/o the legal paper saying that your married. You sleep in the same bed, you come home to each other everyday, you eat as a "family", you have joint friends, you talk and have conversations as you would when you're married that stuff doesn't change b/c you have a legal document stating that by law you are joined- oh yah and your last names match. [almost] Everything you do, you do together, as a couple.

I believe in marriage, I do, I want to get [re]Married one day. I want the dress and the flowers & ceremony. Its not just a legal thing its a religious thing too, I know M will ask me whe he is ready/can afford to but until then, [I] don't push the marriage card. Enjoy living together, b/c living together is wonderful too, less stresses- Marriage brings a whole new slew of stresses.

It amazes me how many people I come across, almost daily, who think that by age X they have to get married then after 1.5-2 yrs of marriage they have to be getting pregnant and purchasing a house, have a dog... don't forget they also don't want to stay home with said children & dogs. They want a CAREER, not a job (good luck with that with the current economy- even with a degree, good luck!).

Most woman now-a-days want to bring home a substantial paycheck, help contribute to the household; And lets face it 97% of households cannot run off only one paycheck. You need dual paychecks to keep things running smoothly, as to not be living "paycheck-to-paycheck". No one likes to live that way everyone likes a little wiggle room (oh boy I just burst out in the jello theme-song).

So little sally will be tossed into daycare @ 6wks old b/c ladies you ONLY get 6wks maternity leave from that wonderful career you have. And hubby, if his company has it, offers him 2 wks paternal leave. You'll be one lucky lady to work up to the day you deliver. Most can't/choose not too.

Then money starts to get tight b/c you HAD to have the best daycare, the "In daycare" yah well that one is $300 more a month then the one that didn't have a mile-long waiting list. And you HAD to have that brand new Hybrid SUV w/all the bells and whistles... b/c you wanted to be "green" b/c thats the "in" thing to do. Oh and little Sally she has to have Organic formula and food, b/c everyone at her daycare does & you buy her clothes from swanky boutiques near your home, no chain brands for your sweetpea.

Not to mention your mortgage payments are a little high b/c you HAD to live in that part of town. You couldn't live 10 mins down the road, no you HAD to live there, the night life was good, great dining, ect. Well the price of living in that area was fine a little high, but manageable until you had a baby, another mouth to feed, body to clothe, etc... Don't forget vet bills, just like Sally, Buddy has to go to the DR too.

Once you have a child EVERYTHING changes. Lets start with your body. It is possible to loose all your baby weight, if you're determined you can do it quickly. But your body is never the same, ever. You might, no matter how much cocoa butter you use, get stretch marks... Bye-bye bikinis and bare mid-drifts. Your hipster jeans/skirts will not fit you the same ever again, they will fit, just not the way they did pre-baby. Once you deliver your hair falls out b/c of the immediate lack of hormones. You get dark circles b/c you're always tired, from work, home & baby-you won't sleep nearly as much as you did pre-baby. My guess is you won't have as much you/hubby time either, too tired. No more sleeping-in. Children don't sleep in. You have less time for yourself, your child gets all of your attention so getting your hair, nails, etc done falls to the wayside... hello natural hair color! Until they are slightly older of course. You have to get up twice as early so YOU can get ready for work , then you have to get your baby up and ready too. No more quick trips to the store either, you always need the diaper bag... is it packed? You've gotta have extra bottles, clothes, diapers/wipes, etc... yes this is for a trip to the store. You never know what's gunna happen.

Vacay- traveling? HAHA!! You want to take your baby on a plane? or a long car trip (gotta stop to change Sally frequently)? Is where you're going family/child friendly? What is there for the kid(s) to do? Can you afford to pay the price for all those extra (for the kids) checked bags?

You might say to me well I do have my husbands help & support. You may yes, but majority of the responsibility falls onto the mother. Daddy helps but moms micro-manage and if its not done right [her way] she has to re-do it so until baby is older mom does a lot of the work. Don't forget his body DOESN'T CHANGE.

Having a child with your husband is quite the bonding experience. You're making another life out of your love for one another. But most people don't think about the drastic changes that come along with having a child.

You may have friends/family members that have infants or toddlers. Or you may watch TV show(s) that features young babies or adorbale pregnant women. You think I want that. Well when you have friends you don't always see the whole picture, and on TV they don't show you the not fun parts of being pregnant... (every woman is different) or how hard raising a family can be. On top of excelling at your career.

Before you set all of these outrageous "benchmarks" for your life, try living it. Don't have a set time limit for everything.

Travel (child free) with your husband first, just be married and enjoy that for a while b/c while having a child does bring you two together, your marriage WILL in fact change. It won't be like it was pre-baby; No more impromptu dates (gotta find a sitter), no more super late take-out dinners kids need routine, no more sleeping in, cuddling up on a rainy sunday to watch movies and munch popcorn, etc...

So I guess what I am saying don't have a baby b/c you think "its what you have to do b/c you're married now" They aren't accessories. They are full time responsibilities.

IDK how many of you actually read the whole thing... but its been bothering me for a while. Had to get that off my chest. Im off my "soapbox"... for now!

Lets be mature... **What are your thoughts on everything that I have laid out today?

Lauren...Yah you know her over @ BusyBee Lauren ... Yah shes "awesomespice" < thats totally her word... NOT mine. :) Gotta give credit. Started doing this type of post & I thought it was cute & wanted to give it a try.

Things I am swooning over right now:

Fruit2O: Raspberry... So good esp. since Raspberries are no longer in season.

My NEW iPhone Apple In-Ear Headphones with Remote and Mic! They so totally rock. If you have an iPhone. Spend the $$ and get a pair!

The fact that its the 3rd day of Fall but FL is a little behind the times & forgets thats there's 4 seasons so I can still wear my super cute Lilac LUCKY Brand Dress that I only spent $7.50 on... booyah!

ALL Paul Mitchell Hair Products. Esp Super Skinny Serum ... I use this when I blow-dry my hair & then I put a little on again before I straighten my hair... L.O.V.E.

Brach's Candy (mellowcreme) Pumpkins, not to be confused w.candy corn! One of my FAV things about this time of year is that you can find them, everywhere... They are addicting.

The Vampire Diaries... The Show... I did not read the books. I want to now... might but them on my kindle. But the show is rocking. I love Elena's hair (&jeans) & Oh Em Gee Stefan! Thank God for the DVR & the Pause button!

**This last thing is something I can not afford but wish I could...

Short2Long HAIR EXTENSIONS!!! I have wanted them for like 2yrs now. My salon does them... for probably around $500-- IDK exactly b/c I know I can't afford it so I haven't gone in for the consultation.

What are you swooning over?

"So Easy Breezy"

To look at another persons life, relationship, job, etc... and judge. Point fingers if you will. Its easy to find the flaws and then once you've found them you want to correct them, as if the person hasn't tried that already. The problem is probably running deeper then what you see/hear about on the surface.

Everyone does it. Go ahead, lie & say you don't. You do. Its human nature.

[are you done lying yet?- ::Waiting::-] [okay proceeding... ]

It's easier to look at someone else's life, relationship, job, etc... then to look at our own. It's easier to [try] fix someone else's problems, even if its just on the surface. When there are probably plenty of your own to fix... take a look in your own backyard.
Usually all you're doing is causing more hurt and heartache; by shedding unnecessary light on the situation(s), when you thought you were helping- you probably were not.

More times then not people know what is wrong in their life, relationship, job, etc... They DO NOT need outsiders who know little [to nothing] about it throwing their measly two cents in. It feels like they are rubbing it in. Thats not necessary, at all.

Look at logically when you have a problem with your life, relationship, job, etc... do you like it when someone who knows little [to nothing] about the situation try's to give you unwarranted advise? -NO, you don't. --Lying, again?! You don't like it, b/c you didn't ask for it. If you wanted their opinion you would have asked for it. Period.

So next time you go to judge someone else's life, relationship, job, etc... Check your own backyard... maybe do some "grooming" in your own yard before you lend a helping hand to your "neighbor" unless they asked!

**My daughter is sick... like has her first cold...ever in 17mons of life... So she comes first, the posts might be scarce or just be a vid the next couple of days! Plus this chick has her LAST, yes LAST surgical procedure Thursday!**

That's how I would describe my "book" -- actually I wouldn't even call it that. I have 1 page written... I have the whole thing in my head... I just can't find the time.

When E is napping I shower, eat do laundry and if there's time I relax. As of late she has only been napping for an hour versus the oh so lovely 2-2.5 hr naps!

Over a year ago I got the bright idea to write a book... more of a tell all comedy type of book (you didn't think I would really tell yall what it's about did you? - I don't want you jokers jacking my idea!) .

The main character is M's best friend for 18 years...he also happens to be E's Godfather. Its actually quite humorous. Uncle Andy is quite the joker as it is so you can only imagine how excited I was at the thought to depict him in a book.

I love to write. When i put my mind to it Im not half bad. I majored in PR; there's a lot of writing in PR. I've hit a few brickwalls:

- [little] No time... Hey im raising a toddler here.

- Mommy brain... I seem to forget things so easily. Andy is not easy to get ahold of now a-days... his g/f has got him on quite the short leash.

- Im either going to be going to Grad School in Jan or I will be accepting a job offer if they ever call me back after 2 awesome interviews (they said one day this week, come on already).

Then I got to thinking once/if/when I get this written I don't have an editor or a publisher. How does one go about that anyways?

No more excuses!

I guess if I'm serious about this "book" I should get writing, huh? I mean it has a title already. and the first few pages written. Thats a huge start!

Im no Stephenie Meyer or J.K. Rowling -- but my fav books are not all written by "super-star" authors.

I think I am going to set goals for myself [maybe] 1-1.5 pages a day. Thats easy as apple pie! That way I won't feel overwhelmed.

First off I need to finish potty training my precious.

Do you think I'm crazy for attempting writing a book? What are your thoughts on the subject matter?

"It DOESN'T take a Village"

To raise a child... of course I appreciate advice from the pioneers (ie: my mom. stepdad. friends. etc...) who have gone before me. I do really but please let me be mom.

I understand they've been there and done that, but now it's my turn. If I ask that's one thing. One of my biggest pet peeves as of late is being undermined, ALL the time.

E is 17 1/2 mons old... she can't focus on a whole lot. So there can't be 2/3 ppl talking to her. Usually if its just me & her (and Matt) I can get her to eat fairly well. So when my mom (most of the time) distracts E; by talking to her, giving her loving, etc she [my mom] doesn't understand my frustration. Come on now... Lets use common sense!

Mom also repeats almost everything I say to E. For instance I will say: "E we don't throw our food on the floor, Thank you" ... then not even a second my mom will get inches from E's face, "nose-to-nose", if you will, and says in a "baby voice- that I have slowly but surely seized using, and say the same thing!

I have read in numerous books and its COMMON SENSE that a child needs to only be told something by one of the authority figures. That way the child knows who to listen to. It confuses her when my mom does that. Esp when she does it all "cutesty" b/c E thinks its a game. It's not! I will raise her the way I see fit. I am not my mother. I do things my way.

Unless I am doing something harmful don't give your opinion, unless I ask. I feel this way about ALL aspects of my life, not just child rearing.

I feel I am/ have done, a damn good great job raising my baby girl on my own up to this point. I don't intend to change now. Things will continue to get better with time. I know that moving out the hose will help the situation improve & I know that step is coming... soon.

I am mom. I make the rules, that pertain to MY daughter. Period. The End. I thought that line was drawn. But here lately I am not so sure anymore. That is not something that should be foggy. ever.

I could go on for days but I don't want my [entire] blog to be all about E & mommy stuff just sometimes... but I am a mom now.

"False Sense of Security"

I read a wonderful blog called Single Mom Seeking (yes its by the same wonderfully witty woman who wrote the book i've been raving about, Rachel Sarah). Yesterday as I was reading her blog she wrote, HERE , about how her boyfriends car got broken into & asked her readers what they do to feel safe.

Its so ironic that she wrote on this, b/c I woke up yesterday AM to a phone call from my neighbor “Isabell’s car was stolen” Isabell is her daughter. I live in a safe (or what I thought was safe) gated neighborhood. Come to find out after speaking to the cops, there was numerous break-ins 1 block away last night! No wonder there were choppers flying over head at 530a...they were looking for the "suspects" from the break-in 1 block away (the car was reported till 730a-ish).

I am a young single mother of a 17 1/2 mon old. I have never felt unsafe in my home before, now. My boyfriend lives over 1,000mi away because of his job, he has a gun. I have mentioned to him how I would like to learn more about them, maybe take a few lessons and get my license and purchase one. I have been shooting before, my ex used to be into guns and would take me to the range (pre-baby) and I've been hunting- hello my family are a bunch of rednecks! So I know how to use one but I am not sure I know how to use one for protection, I know if it came down to it I could do it, but I don't want to take that chance. He freaked out and said no way, with out even so much as a second thought. I am only 5 foot and I weigh-in at a whopping 117lbs.

I want something besides my alarm system to make me feel safe, my dog passed away in May from cancer and with potty training a toddler I am not ready to do that with a new dog, just yet. All it took was one phone call to make me feel insecure within the 4 walls of my own home, how sad. What has this world come to?

A friend of mine who’s husband is in the military so she is a single mom most of the time has a small handgun and before now I was against having a gun in the home with small children, but now all of a sudden I feel like I need to do something, take a stand to protect me and my daughter.

Now I ask my readers... to my knowledge I don't have any single moms that read my blog, but I do have MOMS... what are your thoughts on safety? what do you and yours do?

**For those of you who don't know what I am talking about the title is from the Harry Potter series written by J.K. Rowling; Parseltongue is the language of Snakes.**

Lately in my hometown pythons, not just any pythons have been everywhere. Florida Fish & Wildlife have been busy, coming and removing them from residences that don't have the proper permits. Or in once instance one was in a storm drain! WTF!

Lets take a look at the suspects that have been found around these parts in the last few months shall we?

1) This one is tiny compared to some of the others we will see 5-foot-long ball python. This was found/removed from a home Tuesday, Sept 15, 2009 because "A landlord told authorities that someone moved out of their home, but left their snake behind." Thats a class act folks. Lets take a looksie...

2) Delila. She has caused quite a stir since she made her presence was made known, Friday, Sept 11, 2009. "Officials said it was the biggest snake they had seen on the job -- measuring 20 feet and weighing more than 350 pounds, according to its owner. It is 30 inches around and 17 years old." HOLY COW! Yah she's H-U-G-E!! and the owner went on to say this..."I've got pictures of my daughter riding on her back" -Is he kidding me!? He's what?! That's gotta be a joke. Lets see some shots of Miss Delila, shall we?

She had 4 rabbits for lunch Friday... and you can see them in this pic:

Notice in the upper middle the woman and her BABY!! NO effing way would I left E anywhere near that snake... eff that!! These people had double their dose of crazy for breakfast!

See what I mean... uhh NO WAY!!!

Apparently posing w/Mickey Mouse is so yesterday! Posing w.Delila is so now!

You get it she's HUGE & was on the TODAY show...yah yah... Moving right along...

Side note- "Burmese pythons are not native to Florida and can grow to more than 20 feet in length and weigh 200 pounds. The species has been in the news recently in Florida, first because of the problem of pythons released into the wild, then because a python strangled a 2-year-old girl in Sumter County in July." - Click Here for the full story

3) Curious about the burmese python that strangled that poor little girl? This one is almost 9 feet long. Its a sad story. It got out of its cage in the middle of the night and into the crib of the sleeping toddler. This story made me sick to my stomach, as I have a toddler. The parents are being charged. This was only 1 of 2 snakes in the home. The other was a 6 foot boa constrictor. Here is a picture of one of the local news personnel holding said almost 9 foot burmese python back in July.

4) How would you like to be taking a stroll through your neighborhood and see an albino Burmese python? Yah well one that measured between 6 and 7 feet was found in a neighborhood in MY cty last month on Aug 17, 2009. "This was probably somebody's pet that they felt it either got too large to care for, or it escaped its own enclosure and had been surviving in the wild for some time." Morgan of (my county has been removed sorry folks!) County Animal Services said." "The larger they get, the bigger the meal. This guy here could easily eat a small rabbit, but as they get larger, you have to start worrying about the family dog," Morgan said. YIKES!!

5) A boy found a 17-foot Burmese python Friday while walking near his uncle's veterinarian office in Okeechobee County, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said on July 31, 2009. Thw FWC said the snake weighed 207lbs. -Um HOLY SHIT!


Okay so I think yall get my point. I also saw a story where a man was going to bring his trash cans in and there was a 5 footer coiled up. Um... WTF?! I hate snakes, with a passion & the recent influx of them on the news doesn't help at all. I think they are GROSS. When I was in 2nd grade & again im 4th (had the SAME teacher twice... Lucky me) we had 3, yes 3 pet snakes. I always seemed to get "pet keeper" as my Life Skills thing. UGH it sucked. I would have rather do the trash. I remember wanting to cry I hated it so much. I used to have to feed it the mice and clean out the cages and to do that I had to take them out... which meant touching them & "playing" with them. Im pretty sure that's why I hate snakes so much to this day.

Also...I have changed the settings on my blog to allow anyone (you don't just have to have a google acct. anymore) to comment. So all you "lurkers" out there...COMMENT AWAY!! Tell me... what's one of your FEARS... or something you just can't stand?

"Love on TV"

So I am a sukah fo reality TV... esp the dating shows (ie: bachelor , bachelorette , MORE to LOVE , etc...)

Judge on Judgers...!

I know you all are watching them too!!

As I watch these ladies/gents fall madly in "love" in only 6 weeks I think to my self is that really possible? Or is this just for the cameras? Are they just caught up in the moment?

Do they really know the other person? -They go on group dates... one-on-ones. They meet the families. They do the things you do in a normal relationship, just in superdrive.

Once the show is over and the network isn't fronting the bill anymore, the lavish dates/dinners/trips stop; BAM! Its back to reality like head first into a brick wall. Once all that stops is the "OMG I Love you soo much (after only 2days but whatever, idc)" still there.


Lets take a look at the stats shall we... its quick:

Out of ALL the seasons of the Bachelor... Z.E.R.O -- YES; zero... zip... zilch! no couples have actually survived. Like 17 seasons. Thats horrendous. Bachelorette... O.N.E. Trista & Ryan! What a sweet LOVING, PERFECT couple. Season 1 she was the first & ONLY one to actually have a real LASTING relationship after the camera crews packed their bags. There has been significantly less seasons of the bachelorette but still still the same. SAD; only one couple has actually found love & made it work.

More to Love, this was it's 1st season, on Fox. It was advertised as "Real love for Real people" It was a 250lb man, he was 26 yrs old and he was a real estate developer and all the woman had to be a size 16/18 and up. Okay. I liked no I LOVED the concept of the show. I think it was fantastic. The average size of a woman in the US is a 12/14. Not a 0 which is what Hollywood portrays. -- I digress.

Anyways. I really like who Luke, the man, the bachelor, if you will, picked. I will no spoil it for those of you who might have DVRed it. I hope they truly find love. The odds are against them, sadly. I hope to see this show back, in the reverse... I want to see a lady having her choice.

Normally I am an optimist and think love can be found anywhere. It's all about fate. But for some reason I just don't think that a TV show is the best place, it doesn't depict real life. B/c for one thing the network is fronting the bill. I don't know many people that live that way. hello! and two who really gets followed by camera crews, unless your RPatt or KStew.

**What do you think about love on TV? Possible?**

I hate thats a strong word... dislike them, strongly.

You know when your doc says "you need to loose weight & stop smoking" -When he/she is morbidly obese and then as you're pulling outta the parking lot you see him lighting up in your rear view mirror.

Don't tell me to do something you won't do.

**I don't smoke or need to loose [anymore] weight... I just used that as an example... I don't need an influx of e-mail from ppl asking me when I started smoking. I don't GROSS**

I've noticed people re quick to dole out advice, if you will, but they don't want to take it themselves. -I know it is easier said then done.

I have realized that I think before I speak a lot more now, b/c I have realized that I might not know the whole story & I don't want to make an ass of my self. Also as I said HERE I do unto others, and lately only a handful of people know my full story so why the hell would I do something I wouldn't want someone to do?

I don't like hypocrites. I am working on being a better person. So therefore, I am trying my damnedest to not be one.

-Stop laughing... It wasn't THAT funny. No really, STOP!-

I have a child who is becoming a little person, who copies EVERYTHING her mama does... and I mean everything. It is kind of scary but also incredibly amazing to see, what an awesome little person!

"She is a little sponge" -So I [have] to lead by example.

Why tell someone to do something if you yourself won't do it? Does that honestly make sense?

"Single. Mom."

And not ashamed. One bit. Never have been. Even though I am in a relationship I am still a single mom. I am raising her alone.

He is 1000+mi away.

When he's around he doesn't really know the "daily routine" & he's in no way the one to lay down the "law of the land" thats my job. He seems to just be there to, play & have fun. Mommy has to be the mean one.

It's never been my dream to be a SM-- I don't think it ever is anyone's, but life happens & you deal. I feel I have done well with dealing.

Yes. I live with my mom.
No. she is NOT a live in babysitter.
Yes. She helps me [sometimes].
But I am mom... She is grandma and the line has been drawn.

I will not live here much longer- I will either get this job (and have the fund$ to move out) ... or be going to grad school, either way- God has his plan.

It will all be clear...(very soon!)

I have made some very tough decisions at a very young age. I am proud of my decisions.

I just finished reading...

Singe Mom Seeking By: Rachel Sarah

If you are a single mom, this book is fantastic. Sorry to say but if you're not a SM, you just won't be able to relate.

I flew through this book in just 6 days. I only read at night. I felt like Rachel was talking to me.

I Tweeted earlier this week about being lonely & going to bead early on a friday and how that was one of the many joys of single mommyhood and a friend said: "just think, when shes all grown up and going to college and shes absolutely beautiful, you can say you raised her on your own. YOU did that. on YOUR own. =) tough job. but the most rewarding."

That really put a smile on my face. Kind of put things into perspective for me.

I hope that I won't be a SM for much longer but I am no longer in a rush, once I live w, M I don't consider myself a SM anymore. I will be happy just living together.

I do want to get married, but I am in no rush. I am only 23...

-I have time.

Friday, September 11, 2009


I don't know how many other bloggers are writing about this monumental anniversary. But this day always hits close to my heart.

I was raised in a military family. This is how it goes:
Grandfather: Navy
Father: Marines
Uncle (by marriage- but still): Army
Cousin (he's currently enlisted... he's 21): Marines
Mothers Side:
Grandfather: Army (I do believe)

and I seem to date men that came with a uniform... I am past that [phase] in my life. I dated ALOT a few Marines & made a mistake with the sailors, THEN there's M, my wonderful and loving b/f, a former Marine and a Purple Heart Recipient for being shot in Iraq. I was also close to one of my teachers, Hector Rodriguez, who got instantly activated, National Guard and deployed to Afghan after the attacks (but I'll get to that).

I digress...

Anyways I chose to write about today as a form of respect for the victims of the attacks and their families as well as for ALL the first responders & for all of our Men & Women serving their country in Afghanistan, 8 yrs later.

You may not agree with the war or with the President that started it and all of that is behind us but no matter your views I would hope that no matter what you still support those wonderful men and women.


I remember that day like it was yesterday. I was in my 2nd period sophomore english class we were doing a work sheet, the news was on b/c parts of the worksheet had to do with stuff on TV commercials. So no one was really paying any attention to the news while it was on (b/c they only needed the commercials to complete the assignment) but ever since I was a kid I have always watched the news. I still do to this day. So I was in my group & had my desk pointed towards the TV. Then I saw the letters B-R-E-AK-I-N-G in red flash then hit happened! BAM! they showed footage of The first plane hitting. I froze. What was happening?! Then a few seconds I screamed "TURN THIS UP!! A PLANE JUST HIT THE WORLD TRADE CENTER!!" Then BAM! again, but this time it was live not a video and that was not the first tower it was the second. I was totally freaked out and scared... After the second one hit I grabbed my purse and my books and ran the fuck outta there! I was crying at this point, I didn't know what was going on, I knew people that worked there. I grabbed my cell outta my purse (yes I had one way back then) and called my mom - she worked outta our house so she had access to a TV too and she didnt know much more then I did.

Pres. Bush was in my state about 2 hrs from my school reading to elementary schoolers. I was freaking out. I saw my friend Erin and told her what I knew and bolted it to the YRBK room. I spent a lot of time in there, it was also my 3 & 4 period so that was a plus. The rest of the day was a complete blur. Principal Hattabaugh instructed all TVs to be on to the news and thats all that happened all day. Most students left early, as the attacks didn't just stop at the towers, there was a plane that went down in a field in PA and the Pentagon had a plane flown into it.

I stayed in YRBK & Mr. Rods room. They were across the hall. Mr. Rod was in the Army National Guard. We talked about what happened, mostly speculation. He told me that there was a good chance he would be activated. I knew what this meant, there was no need for explanations, Our country had just been attacked. When the bell rang at 2:15 I went to my locker but didn't know why. I have nothing to do. No homework. ALL after school activities were cancelled, so no band/colorguard tonight. So I shut it and left. I felt empty. I had so many questions and no answers.

In the following days, weeks & months I saw our country come together in a way I had never seen in my lifetime. It was amazing, it was something I had only read about. But that didn't change the fact that we were on the brink of war, that we had been attacked on our soil, in NYC, In PA & in DC all in one day! and that our country would live in fear. "They" had succeed.

"The eff you button"

Sorry for the absence yesterday! There is no excuse I know but I was sick. No need for the gory deets... we'll leave that up to LiLu and TMI Thursdays but I think yall get the picture!!

Anyhoodle on to todays very late (in the evening...again SORRY!! I have been slacking-- I know you kids have like 10000000 other bloggers on your readers so you, well, deal just fine) Post.



The EFF-YOU button...

Is the button you hit on your cell when you don't want to talk to whom ever is calling at that moment. You know to shut your phone up. Whether it be on the top, side or front of the phone; EVERY SINGLE PHONE has one. Yall know exactly what I am talking about.

Frankly I hate that little sucker. It pisses me off so much when I get "effed you-ed" Oh man does it make my blood boil. Idk why I get so pissed though, b/c I do it too. Sooo... its totally "the pot calling the kettle black" ya know?

But In my defense, Yes! Wonderful how I get to defend myself and no one else does, tis my blog folks. I have been working on trying not to do it [as much] any more. I will answer, and If I really can't talk you will seriously get a 2-second... "hey (insert name here)! I can't talk-- call you back" -click. but if I don't want to talk for whatever my reason is, I just don't answer. I don't eff you button people [as much] any more, b/c of how much I hate getting eff you-ed.

I think its rude.

I stopped talking to someone altogether b/c I called them TWICE within like a week and a half (give or take) this person 1) didn't call me back (message was left) 2) Eff you-ed me BOTH times! yes! BOTH times. WTF?! You better believe they got a nasty a stern message, letting them know that was totally not called for.

This person knows how much I hate getting eff you-ed too.

So needless to say folks you the manners your mama raised you with (I know we didn't have cell phones back then but you're smart [mostly] humans & can figure this one out) DON'T USE THE EFF YOU BUTTON.

Be polite answer have a quick convo -or- Txt the person and give a quick "busy... call ya back in a few, when I can talk" or something along those lines.

Understand? Yah!?



Hope everyone remembers what tomorrow is 9-11-09... 8 yrs ago (9-11-01) started the very war we are STILL fighting in (Afghanistan) today!

Don't forget to take a moment of silence to remember all the fallen NY & NJ Firefighters, Police, EMT, Port Authority, etc.. and all the civilian lives lost & effected by the horrible events that took place 8 yrs ago.

"Its all who you know"

It's all about who you know now-a-days. Really I mean you won't go anywhere if you don't know someone. As you all [or most of you] know I have been vying to go to grad school for a while now. Well with my lower GPA and not great GRE scores; getting accepted was starting to look impossible. Well if you know me... I mean really know me. You know NOTHING is impossible, if I want it badly enough. Well folks I want this- BAD.

So while I was on vacation I got talking to my boys sister... we'll call her ML & she was telling me how she loved the school she went to and how it was small classes and what not, not to mention the campus is GORGEOUS... I love that b/c I went to a smaller University and I'm used to smaller classes, but I digress.

She told me that she knows the Dean @ the college she got her Masters from. You may be thinking how I'm "taking the easy way out" think that... but it's up to me to prove myself once I am accepted (which I haven't been yet- I am still completing the app and getting everything together so I can send all that in- ASAP) Judge all you want you judgers. I am doing what anyone else would do. ITS ALL ABOUT WHO YOU KNOW. and I am doing what I know in the long run is best for my daughter and I.

I am starting to do what is best for the two of us and saying "screw it" if its not in our best interest. Im tired of making everyone else happy- It's time to make US happy. I have spent way too much of my life making everyone else happy. Its OUR turn.

Anyways she wrote this magnificent letter to the dean and after reading I had a few tears in my eyes. I thought to myself... -wow she has known me all of a month or so and seems to know me better then some people I have know for a lot longer, I was truly touched in a way I can't describe in words (if I get her permission I will post the letter- omitting names and such) and two -I was like she will be my sister-in-law one day. I am truly blessed to have such wonderful people in my life. truly.

But hopefully in the coming weeks I should know if I get accepted our not. I am also going to (fingers-crossed) start subbing in my county any day now!! So thats very exciting on my end, I am just awaiting one phone call. Its experience and that's a huge plus and looks fantastic on my resume.

Wish me luck! I'm gunna keep on pushing forward and of course keep all of my wonderful readers updated.

*I hope everyone had a Great Labor Day & a FANTASTIC college FOOTBALL kickoff weekend!*

"Do Unto Others..."

That is something that my mother taught me as a little tike. It is something I am in the process of teaching my little tike. At 17mons old its not exactly something that she can quite comprehend. I don't expect her to understand it, but that doesn't mean I am going to stop.

Of all of the things I hope to instill in my child this is one that I want her to learn early on. To me it is more then just a saying. It is something that I truly believe in & live by. "I do for you, as you do for (or don't do) for me" I hope my daughter sees this in me and I lead by example; because what better way to teach your child then by example.

I mentioned here about friends and how it takes more then just me to keep a friendship alive and reasons I feel as if I have lost some of my "friends". Well, I was slapped in the face tonight... figuratively, by someone trying to make me feel bad b/c I have "not made the effort" well I have not made the effort b/c I can not remember the last time you did. Childish. Maybe. But like I said. I do unto others as they do unto me.

For instance a friend comes to visit me every weekend for 3 weekends. I will do the same (at my earliest convenience- remember I have a toddler, but I will come) When I come to see you. I am coming to see you and only you b/c when you came to see me you didn't leave to go see others, when you so easily could have. So my loyalties lie with you. If others want to see me all they have to do is ask. I will gladly make plans to come see them on another weekend. This should not anger others. They should understand. -I DO UNTO OTHERS AS THEY DO UNTO ME.

-or- I have a friend who lives about 15 mins from me and our daughters are like best friends already. Its adorable. Anyways she has stayed over and attended all of my shindigs that I have thrown. She really wants me and the kiddo to stay at her place one night/weekend and party it up. DONE! All she had to do was ask and she did, I said yes. I just had to find a weekend. -I DO UNTO OTHERS AS THEY DO UNTO ME.

People just have to remember when they ask me to attend something or go somewhere that I do indeed have a toddler...FULLTIME. I am a PROUD SINGLE PARENT. So do not get mad when I can not attend or say I will try and can not b/c of my child. She is my top priority. I will try my absolute hardest to be in attendance and if I am not there I will try my hardest to make it up to you b/c...say it with me folks...

"Looking Back"

So yesterday I realized what how real "pregnant brain" (forgetfulness, confusion, hormone surges, etc...) really is. It really makes you delusional. I was bored, I couldn't take E out to play on her play-set, & thx to El Nino it was pouring, so we were cooped up inside. I decided to read back on some of my early blog entries; back while I was very pregnant and very much in a different state of mind, so to speak.

Now Let me Take you back to July of 2007...When I found out I was pregnant with E. The very day I had told my "wonderful" and by "wonderful" I mean piece of shit who 'couldn't find a job' b/c he was too lazy too actually look & would rather lay around while his pregnant wife works and goes to school full time huband. OK. AWESOME. So that day I told him I wanted an annulment. We had only been married close to 3 months, it was still in that short "I made a huge mistake" ball park. So I told him that and while that was marinating, I went to lunch. When I came home after my friend has mentioned that she thought I might be cooking something... ie: a fetus; I took a pregnancy test and after literally 25 sec after my urine hit the stick it told me that yup I was def cooking! 1 4 letter word left my lips... F-U-*-K , I couldn't get an annulment anymore. I had to get a family law attorney and get divorced & I was going to forever be tied to this dipshit (im pro-life). GRRRReat & Not like Tony the Tiger GRRRReat either.

So now lets FF 7 1/2-8 months... OKAY! [[Now remember Mister Wonderful (MW) left me at 13wks preggers]]

Here are some Prime examples of "pregnant brain" :

Example 1: Real Brain: I wanted an annulment, I wanted out. I was through with that one-sided, shit-bag marriage. I had better relationships in school then with him.
Pregnant Brain: (after seeing the baby for the 1st time) Even though your a shit bag lets try make this work.

Example 2: Real Brain: Your husband walks out on you while you are 13wks pregnant, you do what any normal woman does... go see an attorney and get the ball rolling on divorce. So I did. She advised me to wait till the baby was born because of child support and custody hearing and to just do it all at once. So I did.
Pregnant Brain: He calls and says hes sorry for leaving & that he loves me. I put away all the divorcee papers and say "its okay, you're doing what's best for this family" [WTF]

Example 3: Real Brain: I knew what a shit bag he was. He was not "my prince" he was not this sweet kind loving MAN. He once left me alone for hours on end while on vacation in MO to go gamble. < Not a good guy.
Pregnant Brain: I wrote [a blog] about how wonderful he was and how I had found my forever, my prince and blah blah blah bullshit-- I was 8.5 mons pregnant.

Example 4: Real Brain: I DID NOT want him present for the birth. I had told him this numerous times on the phone. I told everyone this. But b/c I was HUGE and pregnant no one listened to me.
Pregnant Brain: He showed up. I was happy. I was hooked up to monitors they showed the truth. my blood pressure shoot threw the roof and the baby's went down. I wrote in my blog how over joyed I was. I was lying. In actuality I was pissed. I had a Plan with my mom and aunt all ready and he ruined it. DIDNT WANT HIM THERE. But the pregnant brain said "its okay" He just got in the way, He didn't help.

I only gave 4 examples but I mean as I was reading these I was just laughing b/c I had divorce papers by 13 weeks pregnant but I am reading blogs I wrote at 7-8 mons along and its talking about how I miss him and love him & how things are going to work and how great he is no matter how bad everyone says he is and I was blown away!

I never believed it when I heard about it while I was pregnant, I laughed actually; but now looking back I guess it really does exist. I guess you really do and say things that you would never do/say when you're sane/not pregnant. I guess it has to do with the influx of hormones in your body.

It really makes me laugh when I think of the LARGE number of pregnant friends I have now. Be cautious ladies. "Pregnant Brain" does exist. My old blogs are testament to that.

I am thinking of getting rid of them. Its embarrassing, not so much the blogs, but, that I was ever with him. Now I need a stiff drink and its only 9am. Oh sheeish. This is what happens when you spend your days cooped up with a toddler. But thats another blog for another day.

"Where Do I file my Complaint?"

Dear AT&T & Apple,

I am a very very loyal customer. I have been with AT&T since back in the day when they were Cingular.... 6 yrs to be exact. I have been a loyal Mac user for longer then that. With that being said please get your shit together so I can MMS... aka... send Pic msgs! HELLO I could when I had a CrackBerry! WTF!? Enough of this AT&T is waiting on Apple or Apple is waiting on AT&T nonsense or both saying its coming "Later this summer bullshit..." In case you forgot summer ends soon! KTHXBYE


Very LOYAL but annoyed iPhone User


Dear my Fav [plastic] 80's headband,

You're awesome, I love you. What I do not love is the fact that you turned my perfectly highlighted tresses pink like a cheap, fake gold ring turns a finger green. Not cool. You are dead to me.


Someone who hopes her hair isn't still pink after a third wash

p.s- It's too bad too, you were cute.


Dear Medical Insurance Co,

I understand you gotta do what ya gotta do to save green in this shit bag of an economy, but when you once covered 9 pills of my migraine meds and then BAM! You all of a sudden stop and only cover 4, can you please notify me? So I don't make an ass out of myself at Walgreens; asking where the rest of my drugs are. That would be delightful. I looked like a pill popping freak. It also doesn't look too good when I am telling the pharmacist she doesn't know how to do her job. I'm almost certain she called security on me. I left too soon to know.

Dear Seminole Cty [or whatever cty you live in],

WTF! Tag prices just sky rocketed. In case you guys missed the freaking memo... WE'RE IN A DAMN RECESSION! Way to kick your people while we're already down [in the dumps]. Way to go. I guess I should have tried to get a job at the Tag office, they didn't have to wait; there was no way I was waiting in line for 4+ hours yesterday. Lines at Disney World aren't even that long, people are CRAZY! Plus Disney has FastPasses... The Tag Office should look into that. Or maybe look into NOT HIKING UP PRICES DURING A RECESSION! They did that with tolls & look at what a fuss that caused. Damn FL get with it!

Broke [again]-

Thats all i've got for now.

"Enough is Enough"

As most of you know TLC is known for such reality shows as: "Jon & Kate +8", "Little People, Big World" & "18 Kids & Counting."

Well They sure are counting aren't they? It was released today in many different media outlets that the Duggars are pregnant yet, AGAIN! for the 17th time (they have two sets of twins). Is this woman crazy?!
~I am under the understanding that they do not believe in birth control [BC]
b/c of an ordeal (miscarriage) they went through early in their marriage
and I believe Michelle [Mrs. Duggar] was on the pill & that was the cause
of the miscarriage. After a long talk & guidance from their pastor they
decided that they would no longer use BC & they would welcome "Gods
Gifts" (children) as he saw fit.~

Phew! Well they have surely received a lot of 'gifts'. I don't mean to mock her in anyway. I am a christian. I was raised in a southern baptist home. BC was in no way chastised or condemned. I have never heard any of my pastors or Sunday school teachers say it was in anyway a sin to use any form of BC. I have heard that from Catholics, never from Baptists (I do believe that the Duggars are Baptists... if I am incorrect.. please let me know). I personally know what it feels like to loose a child. I have had not one but two miscarriages & they are very heartbreaking. I just feel that they are taking this to the extreme.

How can you give 19 children the one-on-one attention each child needs? How can each child get the needed privacy? As a child grows and matures they do need privacy, its part of developing and becoming a young man/woman. I think of how much attention my 17mon old daughter needs and feel for their young 2 & 3 year olds, not to mention their 8 month old. Do they really have the time & ENERGY?

Then my mind quickly races to their eldest son, Joshua & daughter-in-law, Anna. They too are expecting. In the next month. WAY TO STEAL THEIR THUNDER MICHELLE & JIM BOB! WAY TO GO! Even though Anna is lovely and said she is excited to be pregnant at the same time as Michelle.

I think its time for Grandma & Grandpa to stop having babies & leave that to the next generation. You don't have to stop having sex! By any means. There are options... Condoms... IUDs... or if you don't want to get into all that mess... Jim Bob can get snipped! I know you don't believe in that but pray about it or talk to your pastor because something needs to happen. That sounds great to me! Give Michelles poor worn-out uterus a rest! That way they can still be the "sex-machines" that they have been dubbed but STOP receiving 'gifts'.

Michelle is 42 years old. That alone isn't healthy... on top of that fact that she has birthed 18 other children, how is THAT healthy?! Come on. I can't even imagine what that is like. Ive had one & thinking one two more tops!

Like I mentioned earlier I am a christian & fully believe in the power of God but after a while... Michelle & Jim Bob... "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH"

-I rarely do this but I wanna know...

**I have a question for my readers: What do you think about The Duggars welcoming yet ANOTHER child (mouth to feed, body to clothe, child to give attention to & teach as they are home schooled & fit into their bus to get places...not a car or van but BUS!!!!)? Am I being too harsh or do you agree with me?
