japanese cute hairstyles curly
nude asian redheads
dass hairstyles

K. So. Everyone knows that I’m whiter than white, right? Like seriously. I glow in the dark. I’m not Asian in any way, shape, or form. Everyone understand? Great.

Now, for the hair styles. I guess there is a salon in Texas called Dass salon and spa. So I guess people where look up them? As for the Asian styles, can’t help ya there guys.. Sorry.

Category Two. In which we have daddy’s, best friends, and some awkward moments.

daddy girls moms live
i’m only 11 daddy
daddy’s girl
best friends
best friends bilder
best friends pictures

First off, it builder. Spelled with a u. Second, why do you need a best friend builder?! Best friends are made over a life time. Yeah you can strengthen the relationship by getting to know each other but I don’t know what a best friend builder will do. Have you learned to spell builder yet?

I don’t know if the world has made me think the worst or what, but I don’t know want to know what the I’m only 11 one is about. And moms live? What is that?! Geez…

Category Three. In which we have everything else.

bubbles
search term volume
will arkids pay for ear nose throat
spring images
xdanigirl wordpress
sexy man candy pics

First. Bubbles are fun. Bubbles are nice. Who doesn’t like bubbles?! Bubbles and spring images seem like the would go together. Right? Second. Someone apparently likes reading about search terms. Because they found my blog! Third. Heaven knows I talk about sexy man candy enough that SOMEONE should find my blog because of it.

Someone was actually looking for my WordPress account, guys!! Look!! I’m famous!! Okay no not really but I can dream.

Will ArKids pay for ear, nose, and throat? Yes, yes they will. IF you have a referral from your doctor. If the original referral has expired, you will need to get another one. If you have changed doctors since the referral expired, you will need to let your doctor know and go to their office and have  check up and let them issue another referral. If you do not have a referral you will have to pay for the visit your self. It will be an out-freaking-rageous price for whatever you need done. So, I suggest you do everything in your power to get a referral. 

 

And there ya go. There are our search terms for the month of May! Come back next month for more fun and awkwardness!!

Can we do it?! Yes we can!

GUYS!!!!!!!! Look. At. The. CUTENESS!!! A worm comes down from the top when you scroll and then when you roll over him he says “Get me outta here!” And if you click on him it takes you back to the top!! Try it!! Go ahead! I’ll wait!!!

…………………

Did you do it?! It’s amazing right?! And the fishies move!! And there are whales and turtles and dolphins!! AND!! When you get to the very bottom of the page and drag your mouse across the bottom the sea weed MOVES!!! How awesome!!

Ok… That’s enough of my excitement. You guys tell me what you think!! I love getting your opinions! 😀

 

Okay. So we have two days left in the 30 Days of Truth. They will be split into two different posts. At least one will be today (because we are about to do it…not that it!! Geez get your mind out of the gutter….) but I’m not sure about the other. I feel like poop on a stick that has been run over, backed up over, and run over again by a MAC truck. It started yesterday…I woke up in the middle of the night nauseous and it continued through the day. It als seemed like I had motion sickness. Every time I moved my head felt weird and I got dizzy. And when I dropped cold coke on my hand it felt like a shard of ice sliced all the way through my hand. It was craziness. I’m a little better today but I’m still nauseous. No dizziness or anything. (No. I am NOT pregnant….)

So. We will at least do one today.

Sadly it was not Mac the MAC truck, but that would have been cool. He would have been really nice about it!!

Sadly it was not Mac the MAC truck, but that would have been cool. He would have been really nice about it!!

Day Twenty Nine. Something you hope to change about yourself and why.  Man, this thing is pretty repetitive isn’t it…. Pretty sure we did one similar to this… But we will do it again. I’m going to try not to be Mrs. Repeat and say my size again soooooo….. I would chaaaaaange…. Hmm. I really don’t know. I really want to change my education level, I guess. I want to go back to college and put a lot more effort into going. So I guess I hope to change my mentality. Because if I have a can do mentality instead of a can’t do mentality then anything is possible. Wow… That sounded so cheesy….

Tragedy

I can’t even describe what’s going through my mind right now… On Tuesday my dad called and asked what the last name of a friend of mine was. I told him I didn’t know what name she would go by, as her husband and her were no longer together, so I gave him both names. He said that someone with the same name as her was in a car wreck over Memorial Day weekend.

I got off the phone and scoured Facebook. Neither her, her parents nor her brother had been on Facebook recently enough for me to think they would see a message from me, but I sent on to her anyway. I then Googeled every news station between my town and the Missouri state line.  I found multiple articles on the wreck but nothing concrete enough for me to know it was her. I went back to Facebook and compared names and ages. There was a baby in the car with her that didn’t make it. Later articles stated that there was another baby, who was 6 months old, in the car and was taken to the hospital. Today, I found an article, compared names and ages, and it is, indeed my friend.

Her, her boyfriends infant daughter, and her 6 month old daughter were in the car when my friend lost control. The car hit a sign, slid down an embankment, struck some trees, and landed on it’s side. My friend and her 6 month old were taken to a hospital for treatment, but her boyfriends daughter didn’t make it.

I can’t even describe the pain I feel. Her and I have been best friends since preschool. We went to school from then all the way through high school together. Despite some mishaps, we both graduated on time and together. I saw her in the hospital when she gave birth to her baby boy. I was a bridesmaid at her wedding. I helped her in her dress, helped her with her hair, helped her pee, fixed her dress at the alter, and gave the toast at the reception. Unfortunately, I haven’t met her daughter. I didn’t even know her and her husband had split up and that she had a boyfriend.

Life moves so fast sometimes, that you lose track of the people who have been there forever. You forget who has really supported you and stood by you through everything. You lose touch with the people who should be the first to know things. And that’s what happened between her and I. She has been my friend through ups, downs, high school, drama, boyfriends, ex-boyfriends, divorces, and pregnancy. Remember those people who have been there through all that and more, keep them close. You never know when something like this can happen.

I apologize for such an sad post today. We will finish the 30 days tomorrow. I do not have any solid information form her or her family. After finding out about the wreck, I messaged her on Facebook, called both numbers I had for her, stopped by her house, and called the hospital she was at. I’m not pushing this issue, as her boyfriend doesn’t know me and if it is her, I’m sure he wont’ want a stranger up in their business at this point in time. Hopefully, I will have some information soon.

Vantage Point

The Prompt: Draft a post with three parts, each unrelated to the another, but create a common thread between them by including the same item — an object, a symbol, a place — in each part.

 

The dock hung out over the water, just barely holding itself up. The boards were rotting and falling apart. Angela didn’t care. She walked out across the aging wood hoping that it might cave in and take her down with it. She had had enough. Everyone had left her and she was tired of being alone. She new that if the dock caved, the freezing water would sap her strength and breath. Drowning may not be the best way to go, but then again, neither was any other way.

 

The waves crashed against the white sand of the beach, lulling Devin into sleep. He had taken a long needed vacation from the office. This beach was the perfect place. His beach house was farther down the shore. It was built on stilts with glass windows in the floor so you could watch the fish swim in the crystal clear water. Ahhh, this was the life.

 

It’s just water, Michelle thought, looking out over the lake. The same lake that had pulled her brother down to it’s depths. Since that day she was barely able to take a bath without having a panic attack. Water didn’t have a mind of it’s own, but Michelle knew just how deadly it could be, which made the fear of water all to real. Her shrink had said that she needed to face this head on. Michelle knew that would never happen. She sighed, and turned away from the lake.

This’ll be Fun!!

This post. It’s gonna be a good one!!

Day Twenty Eight. What would you if you got someone pregnant or if you were pregnant? Now, considering I’m, well, a woman, if got someone pregnant I would be the richest woman ALIVE!!! Men would officially cease to be needed. (Sorry guys! We will be nice and put all y’all on a nice tropical island somewhere!!) I think it would get a little old me being the only woman to get other women’s eggos preggo, so I would be fundin’ some research!! And as much as I hate being a guinea pig, the attention would be nice!

But, if I was the one with the preggo eggo, I would be suing some doctors!!! This is gonna get a little personal for a minute, personal in way that I don’t think this was meant for buuuut, it’s a tad necessary with this one. See, I gots one of those awesome IUD thingys that keeps you from getting pregnant for like 5 years. I know they aren’t 100% effective, so I probably wouldn’t be suing anyone, but someone would definitely have some explaining to do!! In all seriousness though, I would definitely keep the baby. It wouldn’t be ideal at this point in time but I don’t believe in abortion and adoption just isn’t for me and my husband. (This truth is not about my views on abortion so that will be saved for another day.)

Let’s get real for a minute

Today, we are going to talk about something that might be a trigger for some people. It’s something that took me 20 years to experience first hand. But my husband, he has been dealing with it for a lot longer than I have. That something is alcoholism. No, my husband is not an alcoholic. His dad is.

Now, we’ve talked about my amazing daddy. I’m not saying my dad is a better dad than my father in law. Every parent does things different. I’m not saying my dad doesn’t drink, either. He does. Just in moderation. I have seen my daddy completely drunk on one occasion. It was for his birthday. My mother agreed to let him have a keg party. One keg of beer between six people. Someone was bound to get drunk. Since then, I haven’t seen my dad have more than four beers. And never any hard alcohol.

My father in law, on the other hand… I met him on Father’s Day. I knew he was a drinker, as my husband and I had to go pick up his brother and/or sister on numerous occasions when his parents were too drunk to drive or couldn’t be bothered to leave the bar. (Keep in mind, when I say “bar”, I don’t mean good music, live band, lets have few drinks on Friday night, opens at 7 or 8 at night and closes at 2 am bar. I mean a bar that opens at one in the afternoon and closes at 10 or 11, a bar that you look at and immediately think of big, burly, tattooed biker looking guys.) I met him at noon. At 12 o’clock in the afternoon, the man was feelin’ pretty good. After my mother in law made breakfast, we went out to shoot guns. Yes, you read that correctly. The only reason I was confident about going out side with them, was because my husband and my brother in law where there.

Fast forward to my son’s second birthday. They missed it. I don’t remember what they were doing but I guarantee there was alcohol involved. Fast forward again, to the weekend my baby was born. My father in law didn’t come to the hospital to see his grandson because my mother in law insisted he come straight to the bar as soon as he got in town. We went to lunch with my mother and father in law after Little Man got out of the hospital. Both of them ordered a drink and so did the older couple that was with them. We had the baby shower in a room off from the bar a few weeks later. My father in law got in from drill, said hi to people, at a little bit of food, and then ordered a drink. My mother in law did, too. Recently he got his second DWI and he is supposed to have a Breathalyzer installed in his vehicle. (The day it was supposed to be installed my mother in law totaled the truck on accident. She was sober at the time.) Do you see where this is going?

My husband told me one time that drinking is the way my father in law copes with going overseas. See, my father in law is in the National Guard and right after the war started he went to Bosnia. I don’t know what happened over there. No one does. He can’t talk about it, and I’m sure he doesn’t want to. But, personally, I don’t see this as an excuse. That may be harsh of me, as I don’t know what he went and is going through, but he has two kids still living in his house, two grandchildren that would love to come visit, and a family he needs to spend time with. My brother in law is basically living at my house. Why? Because my husband and I take him everywhere he needs to go anyway. My sister in law is hardly ever home because she can’t stand being around the man that adopted her and has been her dad for as long as she can remember.

I hate to admit this, but I do what I can to avoid being around him. I do what I can to keep my children from being around him. It scares me. This isn’t something I have dealt with for most of my life like my husband. This is all new to me. And I don’t think that my father in law has an excuse to drink like a fish any chance he gets. I understand he went through a really really rough thing that most people don’t ever think about, let alone deal with. Don’t you think that after I went through a catastrophic, life changing event like being a single mom that I wanted to drink away my troubles every second of every day? That I didn’t want to feel? That I would have rather walked through the world in a haze so it wouldn’t hurt and I wouldn’t have to think about it? But I had a responsibility to my child to stay sober and take car of him. I understand that what I went through isn’t nearly as rough as what he went through, but that still isn’t an excuse. I’m sure some people disagree with me. They think our veterans can do what they like because they have been overseas, they have gone through rough times, they have seen things that we will probably never ever see.  I don’t agree.

This weekend was Memorial Day. A day to honor our troops and all they have done for us. And I appreciate what my father in law has done for me and my family, I really do. He’s a hero, an unsung one at that. But he needs help. He is just too stubborn to admit it. He thinks he is just fine. So, to those veterans out there who have a handle as best they can on whatever happened and to those that need help, thank you. I really, really appreciate what you have done for my family. Thank you for going through the unthinkable in order for my family to stay safe and free. But, if you need help with anything, anything at all, whether its depression, alcoholism, PTSD or anything else, please ask for help. Please don’t be too proud to ask. We understand and we want to help!

So what do you guys think? Is going overseas an excuse?

The end is in site!!

We are on the home stretch guys!!! Nearing the end!!! So random thing here before we get started. Everyone likes garlic bread right? Like to go with spaghetti? Ok so my husband and I have found a trick to making homemade garlic bread. It saves a lot of money and is a lot easier to make. And sometimes tastes better! What you do is you take some butter, stick butter or regular butter, put it in a bowl with some garlic powder and mix it together until you get your desired taste. Then take bread, whatever kind you want, the texas toast kind or just plain sandwich bread, and you put it in the toaster. Toast the bread to the desired doneness, personally I only like my toast to be a light brown color. Then spread the garlic butter on your toast, and viola!! Delicious garlic bread at half the cost!! You can also use this with the big baguette loaves. But you obviously can’t toast it in your toaster, unless you have an huge toaster. So I do this bread in the oven. But now for today’s truth!

Doesn't that look amazing?!

Doesn’t that look amazing?!

Day Twenty Seven. What is the best thing going for you right now? The fact that I have an amazing family!! My dad and my step mom and my step brother and my husband and my kids. They are amazing. I couldn’t ask for a better family!!! They keep me going and keep me strong. They ma not always understand what is going on with me but they do their best.  And I love them so very much!!

Uno…

So this is going to be two separate posts. Day twenty four is a letter. So that will be next!

Day Twenty Three. I’m being totally serious when I say this. I wish I had tried different foods when I was younger. Normally, when I see a question like “what do you wish you had done in your life?” I think of something adrenaline packed like sky diving or bungee jumping. Which I have no desire to do. So. I wish I had tried more foods. I’m a SUPER picky eater. It would be easier to give you guys a list of foods I do like rather than don’t like. Which makes things like getting someone at work to order my food or making my boys eat vegetables really difficult. Sometimes, it’s embarrassing. I’ve had many people make fun of me and be rude to me because I don’t like stuff.

Day Twenty Five and Day Twenty Six. The reason I think I’m still alive today. My son. Plain and simple. That post also talks about the time I wanted to give up on life and why.
