New Car

2003 Chrysler Sebring

I went out and got a new car since I sold and traded in my other two.
It is a 2003, and two door.
But I am going to trade it in soon, because I really want a four door.
But until I do this is a pretty nice car!

Coco's New Baby!!

She is so little! I am pretty sure it is a girl.
Way smaller then my hand!
I am so proud of my Coco, she is such a good mommy.
Just a little thing.
This is were I found her when I got home.

You Don't Mess With The Zohan

I watched a movie tonight. It was pretty good.

You Don't Mess with the Zohan

Not a good movie if you like realistic comedy. It is more of extreme comedy, where things are a bit out of proportioned with reality. Zohans strength and abilities are a bit exaggerated, but it is funny all the things he does. It would definitely be a stupid funny movie for sure. It has a good story line, and just when you think he couldn't do anything else more weird or hilarious, he does. It had me laughing through the whole thing.This is kinda a short review, but I don't want to ruin it for anyone. But as long as you like dumb movies, I would watch it. Oh and it is very sexual, so not for kids!

I watched it on my computer and you can too on this site, use version #4.

In Home Paternity Tests

Well, last night at work we were all talking about those shows like Jerry Springer, where the parents are always wanting to know, who is my babies daddy. I remembered a news article I read once about in home tests and such. So I looked up a little information on the subject. I found this site for GeneSys Biotech and they offer affordable paternity testing. It is really neat because they send you the test kit free of charge and then you send in the samples. If you want the results it costs $165.00, but if you want to take the samples and wait to pay they will hold your results for 90 days. Which is neat, almost like a payment plan. The site is really informative and tells how they can even do the test before the baby is born! The only catch with these tests is all you get is answers, because it is not a court ordered test. For it to be used in court it would have to be court ordered. But you wouldn't have to waste the big money on a 50/50 chance. To take the test they prefer it be the child, mother, and father. But it says on the site it is just as accurate with just one parent and child. Also you can even take a grandparent test, were both grandparents on one side send in samples and it tells if you are genetically related! But I really thought this was a neat subject and here is a link to the site itself:
I thought the site was pretty informational. Plus it does offer legal and non-legal testing. Lol, I wonder if they do dogs....

I am wore out. I worked a 17 hour shift yesterday and got off at 8 am this morning. It really kicks you butt for sure!! But my paycheck will be wonderful because I get paid like $18 an hour for over time. I am also working one of my days off too, so I will have that over time as well. I really need the money, with all the work I am doing to the house. Plus I need to do a little catching up with the bills, not too much, but I am a little behind.

Right now I am all stressed out about Coco. Her due date is tomorrow. Which I know they can be early or late, but I am just worried about her having them alone. I read all kinds of information online about when chihuahuas give birth and all the complications they could have. I am scared! If she has them alone and has certain complications then she could die! Plus one site talked about how their vet had to give the puppies mouth to snout! How in the heck do you do that??? Coco is my baby and I honestly don't know how I would live without her if something ever happened to her. She is laying in my lap right now. I think the heat from my legs feels good on her belly. She looks ready to have puppies. I am pretty sure it is one, but if they are really small for this litter then it could be two. I want to be here for her, but I work nights and I figured that was probably when she would have them. The only night I even have off this week is Tue! I have my room ready so she can have them in there. Since I sleep during the day, it is always dark and calm in there. She will probably have them on my bed, which is okay with me. That there really shows that I love her, because I won't even let people eat on my bed! But I don't care what she does as long as she ends up happy and healthy after all of this.

Ohio and South Carolina

Well, since I have lived other places in my life, I really was curious, what kinda crazy laws was I subjected to. So first off, my home state.
1.Women are prohibited from wearing patent leather shoes in public.
2.It is illegal to fish for whales on Sunday.(I would hope so, where in the heck are you going to find a whale in Ohio??)
3.It is illegal to get a fish drunk.(Well, I think that may take some of the fun out of it.)
4.The Ohio driver’s education manual states that you must honk the horn whenever you pass another car.
5.Participating or conducting a duel is prohibited.
6.It is illegal for more than five women to live in a house.(That explains why there are a lot less mexicans there.)
7.It is illegal to mistreat anything of great importance.(I wonder who it has to be important to.)
Then, Laws just for certain towns.
**It is illegal to display colored chickens for sale.
**No person shall solicit sex from another of the same gender if it offends the second person.
**Skateboarding in the city limits after dark is prohibited.
**Posting signs at swimming pools is illegal.
Bay Village:
**It is illegal to walk a cow down Lake Road.(Damn! How am I gonna get this cow home??)
**Ordinance number 223, of 09/09/19 prohibits the installation and usage of slot machines in outhouses.(But I multitask really well!!)
**Electric fences are banned.
**If one loses their pet tiger, they must notify the authorities within one hour.(Umm...if my neighbor loses their pet tiger, they need to tell me immediately!)
**Power Wheels cars may not be driven down the street.(Well, there went saving money on gas!)
South Carolina
Ok, these are pretty wild. I have to say, they may out do the the others by far!
1.By law, if a man promises to marry an unmarried woman, the marriage must take place.
2.Fortune tellers are required to obtain a special permit from the state.
3.Dance halls may not operate on Sundays.
4.No work may be done on Sunday.
5.It is considered an offense to get a tattoo
6.Horses may not be kept in bathtubs.
7.A permit must be obtained to fire a missile.
8.It is illegal to give or receive oral sex in South Carolina.
9.When approaching a four way or blind intersection in a non-horse driven vehicle you must stop 100 ft from the intersection and discharge a firearm into the air to warn horse traffic.
10.It is perfectly legal to beat your wife on the court house steps on Sundays.
11.Every adult male must bring a rifle to church on Sunday in order to ward off Indian attacks.
12.It is a capital offense to inadvertently kill someone while attempting suicide.
13.A person must be eighteen years old to play a pinball machine.
Yeah, that is shocking and hilarious all at once. I think I may have broken a few laws in my life time!!

Iowa LOL

OK, I had this odd urge to look up urban legends about Iowa, and I really couldn't find any good sites. I was rather disapointed. That is until I stumbled accross a site that had all kinds of weird Iowa laws. Some of these are just hilarious.
1.A man with a moustache may never kiss a woman in public.
2.One-armed piano players must perform for free.
3.Kisses may last for no more than five minutes.
4.Tanning bed facilities must warn of the risk of getting a sunburn.
5.All boxes used to pick hops must be exactly 36 inches long. (in case you don't know what hops is, they use it to make liquor)

Now here are a few that are just for that city. I will have to remember these if I visit.

Cedar Rapids: It is illegal to read persons palms in the city limits.
Fort Madison:The fire department is required to practice fire fighting for fifteen minutes before attending a fire.
Dubuque:Any hotel in the city limits must have a water bucket and a hitching post in front of the building.( I do believe at one point this was a very good idea)
Indianola:The “Ice Cream Man” and his truck are banned.(Thats kinda sad, I think)
Marshalltown:Horses are forbidden to eat fire hydrants.(wow, I wonder if that was a serious issue at some point!)
Mount Vernon:One must obtain written permission from the City Council before throwing bricks into a highway.
Ottumwa:Within the city limits, a man may not wink at any woman he does not know.(Well, I hope the men who live there never have problems with twitching!)

Floods of 2008

Floods of 2008

Ok, I was all reckless and decided to take some pictures while driving down the road home form work. Honestly, though, the sites just amazed me!

Everyone of these pictures is not of ponds or lakes near the interstate, these are actually corn fields!!
The water goes on as far as the eye can see for most of these fields.
By now all the them should have had two foot tall plants in them. I read in the paper there was over teo billion dollars in crop loss!
This one is on the drivers side of the car, and some of the flood water was just two or three feet from engulfing the interstate itself! There were areas of I-80 that were closed down close to Iowa City, and Cedar Rapids has homeless now in the thousands.
But Newton was pretty lucky because if you head west or east of us there was large destruction due to the floods.

I Love Coco!!

This is my sweet Coco. She is also Nine months old.
She is my baby. I wouldn't live without her!
Her and Garth are always together.
She is going to have a baby in a week! I am so proud of her!
I love every minute I have with her!


I thought I would post some new pictures of my sweet Garth.
He is Nine months old. Very handsome.
He is really a cuddler and loves to sleep with me.
He is also quiete the turd and does chew things up form time to time.
But I am glad to have him as my puppy.

My Flowers

Here are some pretty pictures of the flowers in my flower beds around the house. These are my pretty little roses.
Here are some prety tullips.
These I have no idea what they are, but they are really pretty.

Sunday, June 15, 2008

Well, I have to say I am pretty grateful for all the good things I have going for me. I don't have any family drama, a good house I own completely, four nice cars I own, and a good job, with a lot of nice people to work with. I am so glad I am up here in Iowa. I hated living down south. I was all surrounded by ignorant white trash, and all they every wanted to do was bitch and moan all the time about everything. There is so much more to life! I have two sweet loving puppies, who are my world. No kids to tie me down. I don't have to worry about baby sitters and all that crap.

The house is going very well. More people will be coming over on Tue/Wed of this week too. We will start the painting once we finish up some of the other projects. I am very excited. I need to make phone calls tomorrow about the finiancing.

Remodel Update

Well, everything is well under swing. Krystal came bright and early on day one. Which was awesome. We finished tearing up the kitchen floor first thing on day 2. The entire time the dogs are running around like OMG. Now they seem to be used to it. They loved seeing lots of new people though. The bathroom is going alright, but we are stuck because I need a hack saw. We haven't started any painting yet. I think we may have accidentally buried the rollers in the garage. So far Krystal, Jeremy, Nathan, Kyle, Sam, Bryan and Nathans cousin have all come out and helped. Not all at once, but over the last two days. All the good stuff is out of the basement, and all the bad stuff is ready to be hauled off. Upstairs is a disaster, lol. Have the new kitchen floor has been laid down, but we are having to take our time, because we are having to weight each tile down until it drys, and we have only so many heavy objects.

I went to the gym to tan tonight and take a hot shower to relax my muscles after working on all this. We got the bathroom door reversed too. Which makes the bathroom feel huge now. Basically we have little things left to do, all the major stuff is done. I have to work tonight, so I will write more later!

Remodeling Party!

Well, everyone is invited over on Tue and Wed of this week, because I am having a big remodeling party. I will have drinks and anyone who helps out, I will take you out to Cici's my treat when we are all done! We will be tearing up flooring and carpet, running wire, wallpapering, painting, putting up the new shower curtain and rod, and possiably pulling up carpets! Plus I am getting rid of a ton of things, so I will give them to my friends for free!! So bring your self and all the little helpers you can! Kids are welcome to come to, everyone can find a way to help. If any one has a truck that would be super helpful, because thanks to all the rain I have four inches in the basement and my ex was stupid enough to put things on the floor, so most of it will have to be hauled off to the dump. Thanks and I can't wait to see you guys there!

I will post before and after pictures!

As soon as I get this done, I can sell this place and buy the apartment building up town! Well, I am actually going to buy the apartment building as soon as I get this on the market, so lets get it done already!

Message For Chis

Well, Chris, since you have lied to me and various others, and dropped off the face of the earth, I thought you would probably find this sooner then later, because your family is still up my butt. Would you just get it together and call me so we can make arrangements for you and I to get our divorce and such. I still have a lot of your stuff here you might want. I do have some important legal documents as well. I don't care either way if you chose to stay down there, I just need to know, and so does Hema. She is still covering for you so you can have a job up here if you are coming back. But she does need to know, because no one has any days off until you get back. But no one here is mad or anything, we just need to know.
Also I have idea what is going through your head when I made you all kinds of offers with money and a car, and you just up and disappear. I am sorry for your loss, but if you keep ignoring me I will keep bother Mark. You know it is not fair to put him in the middle of this, and I do have some of your families phone numbers, but I really don't want to call them. If you don't want me in your life that is fine, I would just like a few things finalized. You have my number. Call me.
