Dawn is breaking over Marblehead

What does a mother say when her 20 year old son finally has the self awareness to say;
"having a son like me makes you age faster so technically your prob like 80
goodnight mummy i love you", and he informs you that he is re-enlisting for 3 more years of active duty and requesting to go to Germany because "I haven't done what I came in here to do yet. I'm still not financially responsible enough to afford my own place and I'm still not mature enough. I still have to get my life right."?


What do you say to that?

After I wipe away the tears and can manage to speak without sobbing I tell him:
"I'm so proud of you."

His response?
"Blah. Blah. Blah."

That's my boy.

I want a piece of that!

Could be a long night

I'm dogsitting for the weekend. My Mom has to work and my Grandmother, who is 91, is afraid to take Keegan out to do his business because he yanked her and she bumped her hip last week. She broke her hip not that long ago and she's afraid of it happening again. I don't blame her.
The yard isn't completely fenced in and Keegan has a tendency to ignore you if he latches on to an interesting scent.

We came through the door and Dusty gave a huge hiss and then there was a gray blur with a humongous tail heading down the hall.

This is where she hid. Not looking too happy, is she?

He's only seen the stray cats he's chased in the yard so he is very curious about just what that thing is.

This is Keegan's blanket I laid out for him. Guess we know whose house this is!
It's going to be an interesting weekend.

How about those Miners?

What amazing coverage of those miners being brought up from the mine! It's so good to hear a story with a happy ending for a change. I usually don't watch the news because it's so depressing. This is truly remarkable and uplifting. God Bless each one of those men and their families.

Skanky ho neighbor lost custody of her kids a few months ago. The 14 y/o female ended up in a troubled child camp (shocker) cuz she was cutting herself after visits with her mother. I ended up hooking up with her on Facebook. This poor kid is nothing but a victim, starving for affection like the rest of Skanky Ho's offspring.

Skanky Ho was arrested for Breaking and entering and disturbing the peace in August. She also had a B&E summons for recent activity in the neighborhood (July). Dear boyfriend was also arrested for resisting arrest at the same August activity. Both were also arrested for attempted B&E the beginning of Sept. There was another arrest for the BF for driving on a revoked license Sunday evening. Skanky Ho was arrested on a warrant.

All of this is following an eviction notice from the park, while still fighting to get her kids back. I also heard through the grapevine that Skanky Ho was filing for a Social Security Disability claim for a bad back. Being pregnant for the seventh time has put a damper on that free ride. Yes Folks, my douche bag neighbor is now pregnant with her 7th illegitimate child. Gotta do something to produce a free ride when all the previous illegitimate kids are in Foster Care.

Let's not forget that she is still illegally collecting SS Disability checks for her fucked up 6 year old son starting school this year. A child with Speech impediments and developmental disabilities resulted from Skanky Ho's alcohol and drug use during pregnancy. She is still smoking and has been extremely drunk and under heavy medication/drugs over the last two months. I've personally heard her drunken and drugged out rants and ravings at all hours of the night over the last few months.

The Eviction is still in process and could take a while. It seemed like a light at the end of the tunnel for me but now, with the new pregnancy - it could be a long road.

This evil whore should have been sterilized after her first illegitimate spawn. She only has offspring to maintain her free ride. She has been allowed to reproduce to child #7. This is your tax dollars at work. We are all paying for this disgusting drug addict whore to reproduce innocent victims into a system that we pay for.

Why aren't welfare collectors drug screened and made to support their own offspring?

I hope she is evicted and issued a no trespass order so she cannot come back. I know she will try - she thinks the laws and rules do not apply to her.

In any event ~ I live next door to a true reality show. It provides me much misery and entertainment.

Best News I've Had in a Looooooong Time!

First - my boy is home on 15 days of leave from Afghanistan. I hope to have some pics to post.

Second - I just got the word that the Park is starting eviction proceedings against my Neighbors From Hell!!!!! Can you believe it??? - 16 years I've put up with this shit. I need to update on some of the stuff that has been going on. All of the children are in foster care and the Mom is becoming more and more unstable. Will try and update soon.

At last though - light at the end of the tunnel. Looks like I might have to post that dancing jig video after all!!!

Leaving on a Big Ass Jetplane!


This is the plane he left on. He left about 3:30 AM EST May 2nd. I just received an e-mail and a phone call from him! It's now May 3rd, 11:30AM EST. The time change is tough but he says the country is beautiful and the people are great. He is going to learn so much and hopefully grow so much.

Rox commented on my last post about 2 years ago he was driving me crazy......Rox - that hasn't changed much. Try 4 weeks ago! He did great after basic but over the last few months reverted back to his immature ways - especially his last visit home at Easter. I wanted to smack him for his crappy attitude and disrespectful words to me. Pefect strangers wanted to smack him!!!!!

I hope the next year will make him realize just how lucky he is and help him grow into the man I hope he will become.

Totally Relevant

The Universe is Poking Me

I get this Healthy Reflections newsletter from Sparkpeople today. This is definitely relevant to my post last night that had me balling in my Cherrios again. I think the Universe is poking me (with help from my Dad) and reminding me of what my father told me so often - "All you have is today, so get off your ass........What the hell are you waiting for?"

Message Received.

If we wait for the moment when everything, absolutely everything, is ready, we shall never begin.

Living Within Today

Sometimes it seems like we're always putting off our goals until some vague time in the future called "Once". "Once the New Year rolls around...", "Once I have my new job...", "Once I retire...", "Once the kids are in school...", "Once the kids are OUT of school..." Sound familiar? By waiting for Once to get here, we waste time and frustrate our desire to do what we really want. It's a fact of life that every time one potential distraction disappears, it's quickly replaced with a new one. There will always be something that can stand in your way - if you let it. Ask yourself: are these distractions real reasons, or just good excuses for putting something off? Goals cannot be started in the future. The laws of time and nature dictate that you can only act in the present. You are here, today. So are your goals. The only good time to start is right now.

3 Years

Today marks 3 years since I lost my Dad. In some ways I am still so lost. In other ways life has forced me to move forward, at times, kicking and screaming. My lack of blogging is just another symptom of my grief. I don't have the words or the desire to write the words. It's a slow process, creating a new life without a loved one in it. There is no timetable or schedule to follow. Each person recovers and adapts at their own pace. The emptiness and loss does not lessen with time. We just build up a tolerance for it.

My intention is to Blog more often, not just pictures and quips but actual blogs. I think writing will help me on my path back to truly living instead of existing and enduring each day. I'm going to try. I know he would want me too. Just be patient with me. I do still check your blogs even if I don't comment, I stop by to visit.

I know there are things that I've done that he's disappointed in and others he is proud of or at least he would be if he was still here. I know that he has moved beyond such petty things as pride and disappointment-where he is, there is only love, no judgement. I know he sends me signs that he is still watching over me and although I want so much more, it will have to do.

I love you Daddy with all my heart and I miss you every single day of my life. Please continue to guide me and let me know you're around. Some days that's all that keeps me going.

What is she thinking?

Cat Scratch Fever

i bought one of those new "As Seen on TV Emery Cat" scratching pad thingies. I didn't even get it out of the wrapping before the cats were all over it. The cat nip was irresistible.

Dusty broke the toy within 5 minutes from rolling her fat ass over it. The furry end was soaked with saliva as well.

"I know that catnip she sprinkled on here went somewhere!"

Within an hour Tabitha was sharpening her claws on it. We will see if it actually files them down so I don't have to clip them anymore. It's worth the $20 if they leave my couch alone!

So exciting, so sad at the same time.

Dance Like No One is Watching

Ready for another really feel good video? This one brought me to tears with it's awesomeness.

Thursday, January 14, 2010


My sassy little girl has gone to the Rainbow Bridge. The poor little thing has been so neglected since "The Terrorist" (aka Dusty the cat) moved in. She didn't get to come out of her cage very much and didn't get the attention she deserved.

I feel quite guilty as I'm not exactly sure when it happened. I changed her water and fed her as usual Tuesday night. Later that evening there was a commotion in her cage - she was flapping her wings and squawking (not an uncommon occurrence). Last night I was laying on the couch about 8:30 when I realized I hadn't heard her since I'd gotten home at 5:30.

She was at the bottom of her cage - lifeless.

She could have passed sometime Tuesday night for all I know. I leave when it's still dark out in the morning and I didn't look in her cage.

Her chirps and squawks during the day had become background noise that I didn't even notice.

She had several lipomas growing on her for a few years now, but she never acted ill, she was always fresh and sassy.

I think this guilt is going to last for a while.

Good-bye my precious sassy brat. I hope you are soaring the sky's without a cat in sight. I will see you at the Rainbow Bridge.

For Daddy

1003 Days

How is that possible?

My Mom said "Life goes on" when I told her it's been a thousand days. I started thinking about that. I feel stuck. I don't feel like life has gone on for me, time has. I'm still doing the same things I was 1000 days ago. I don't think my Dad is too happy about that, and only I can change it.

I miss my son terribly. The two weeks he was home at Christmas were nice. Now the house is back to being empty and quiet and I'm wallowing in self pity.

I need to get off my fat ass and start living my life and doing something with myself.
