Okay, first off today I wore Rimmel eye liner. Which was really awesome, because it goes on smoothly, and I don't have to press very hard. My eyes are a little sensitive. Then I wore Almay one coat nourishing mascara. This is a great product because I even took a nap wearing it, and it doesn't do that thing were it gets your lashes all crunchy and itchy. I tried out some of the eye shadow, it was Markwins, a nice bronze color. Which the lipstick was the same brand. I loved the color because it was a nice auburn that had a slight glitter to it.
Now my biggest issue is finding cover up that works, doesn't itch, and doesn't come off with the slightest touch. Today I tried out the Cover Girl Aqua smooth mom got me. You use a small sponge and rub it onto trouble areas. It blends really nice and I couldn't even tell I was wearing it.
Honestly, if I had to go out and buy all this off the shelf full price I would say she could have easily spent two to three hundred dollars on the make-up. The stuff I mentioned above is only a couple of the things in the bag she got me. I have several different types of cover up, mascara, lipstick, eye shadow, and eye liner. She also got me some gentle makeup remover. I also use cleansing pads on my face so it stays more clear.
Trust me, I never thought I would see the day I would write an entire blog post about make-up, but honestly I went out today and felt pretty. It made me feel more confident to know that I didn't just look ok, I looked really good. Confidence is key to happiness and success in life.

First of all this may be the very best Christmas I have had in years. I have a amazingly wonderful loving boyfriend, Justin, who has given me wonderful gifts and showered me in love and affection. My ex who is my roommate, Chris, has been just a great friend all together and very supportive of me. Then my family has been amazing. I was able to buy just tons of gifts for Mickey and Holden. Which seeing them happy and having fun makes this holiday even more amazing. Plus my Dad was in a good mood for once, and it was so much fun having everyone together. Then we added yet another member to the family adoptive wise and have Brandon's friend Heather come spend Christmas with us. We had a amazingly fun get together, were we all got great gifts, and good food. Mickey and Holden got a Wii thanks to Jeremy and we all took turns playing on it.
I am pretty proud of myself because I have been able to ignore small triggers of things that would upset me or ruin the happiness this holiday has brought me this year.
The past few years I can't say I have had bad Christmas's, but they weren't happy or heart warming. I guess you can say I was fairly hum bug, although I didn't show it on the outside.
I am thankful to have enough money right now, I can pay my bills and then some. I am thankful for the fact that Egypt's puppies are healthy and happy. I am glad that me and my mom aren't fighting, because I know it is hard on the kids. Justin isn't a perfect boyfriend, but I am grateful that the longer we are together, the better he gets. I guess I am happy that I do have things good, and I am so glad to have this great Christmas, I know I will never forget it. :)

I am soo tired, but I can't sleep. I finally gave up and decided to get on the computer. World of Warcraft is shut down for maintenance. Blah. So I got on facebook and finally updated all my stuff on there. I am not alone in my not sleeping. Justin can't fall asleep either. We have a bunch of stuff to do today too! We have to take the dogs to get their shots, and drop off Garth to get him fixed. Oh, and before and after that we have to pick up and drop off the one dog I did sell because I told her I would get her shots for her. Then we have a eye appointment at WalMart for Chris and Justin. So they are both gonna get new glasses. Chris hasn't had his in years! Justin just needs new ones because he hasn't had his eyes checked in years.
Egypt is doing really good with her puppies. They are all very cute and healthy. I can't even tell which one is the runt of the litter. I am just still shocked she had a all white puppy. Pure white.
I am getting pretty excited for Christmas. I got almost all my gifts wrapped and ready to go! I have a hutch in the kitchen that has our tree on it, and it is covered in gifts. I am excited to see the kids freak out over what they are getting. Heck, I am gonna freak out over what they are getting! We are gonna have a blast! I have to say this year is coming to a pretty good end.

Which makes me wanna throw my laptop across the room. :)
ANYWAYS! I have come to the realization that I am a little more then addicted the game and I am trying during this down time to find other enjoyable activities to do. Like I have a new book from my House of Night series to read. I am the 5th book call Hunted. Which I have read most of it today and it has been really awesome so far. They only have one more book out right now. If I had gotten over to my mom's before the snow hit I could have been working on my Christmas cards. I don't have many to send, and she has some nice variety ones I can have. My mom always has everything in bulk.
I am kinda happy for all the snow, I am liking being closed in. Now it is a good thing, but in a few weeks it will be cabin fever like crazy!
This year has gone by really fast. It is hard to believe it is Christmas time again already. I am usually way more prepared for things like this, with gifts and such, but this year I am totally behind. I have fallen under the category of the last minute shopper!
I guess the main reason I wanted to write was because I was stressed about not being able to get onto World of Warcraft. I have made it to be an officer in my guild and I am holding our first contest, which is today! I can't even get online to play or help. So I kinda feel like a failure on that end. I know it isn't really my fault, but now I am kinda stressed on the inside. Well, I am gonna go spend some quality cuddle time with Justin. Wish me luck on getting my game to work right!

I love how when the dogs get tired, they all do at the same time. They cuddle up together and drape themselves over each other. It is a adorable heart warming thing to see. Even if they fight and play and get on each others nerves they all come together in the end. Which is kind of how the relationships in this house work together. We all fight and play but still come together to relay on each other when we need each other the most. Trust me, they mostly get on my nerves. Like no one knows how to wash a dish or run a load of laundry unless I tell them too. We actually ran out of plates and forks!! That's how it is sometimes though. We aren't prefect by far, but we work together pretty well most the time. Justin and I got the kitchen cleaned up. I worked on the living room while he hand washed some dishes. Not everything can be put in the dish washer. He has never had one before, so he is learning the rules. Plus I am teaching him the best ways to keep the kitchen cleaner, faster. I am going to start taking clothes to the consignment shop soon. I haven't done that in a long time. With Christmas coming up it never hurts to try and find some extra money. Boys are much more expensive to buy for. At least, all the men in my life are. Chris is going to be easier this year, because he got his big gift early. I bought him a new computer a few months ago. I don't want him to feel left out on the day though, so I am getting him several little gifts. I need to take an inventory, because I have a lot of people already bought for. I got awesome Christmas gifts last year on black Friday. So I am hoping I can do similar this year.
I still need to sell the puppies really badly, our house was not meant to have so many animals! Now, if they didn't poop, that would be a different story. Coco is doing good, I was worried about her for a while. She had long term bleeding after the puppies were born. I took her to the vet and he cleared her, and put her on a watch. I can happily say though she has stopped all her bleeding. Quinn, which is Chris's puppy, is growing up to be a big white turd. He definitely has a personality. He is going to be one unique dog for sure. I am getting really attached to the first born puppy. She is all black with a little white. We call her Tubby. It was supposed to be more of a label name so we could identify her until she was sold, but it is gonna stick I think. She is my little chunky thing. She has big paws, so I am sure she is gonna be big like Asia. I love all my dogs though. It is hard to try not to get too attached to the ones that will go to new homes.

He was able to find a ton of vampire stories for me. He is into the 39 clues books. So he keeps up with them on there.
We still have a ton of unpacking to do, we have kind of took a break from that. I have been keeping an eye out for Christmas shopping. Holden is the hardest one to buy for. I took him over to his girlfriends house today. She is really nice and I like him spending time with her. He always has nice things to say about her.
I bought Coco a doggy shirt on sale at WalMart. She has been wearing it for a few days, and it looks really cute. I got it for her because she always seems to be cold lately. We still have all the puppies here. I really want to sell them. You just don't realize how much dogs can poop!!
Chris has been working weird shifts the past couple of weeks. He will work like 12 to 16 hours for a few days then be off work for 3 or 4 days. It has been hard on him.
I made up treat bags of Halloween candy for the three of us. I got the candy on sale on the first. The boys really liked it. Oh and I had Mickey with me when we went, and I got a dozen cupcakes to split. We don't really need 12 cupcakes for three people. So I gave them six and took six home.
Sam is a pathetic cuddle monster of a cat. I am trying to write this and he comes and throws himself across my right arm. He just purrs his heart away. Zoe has been super loving as well. I wonder if it is because she wants attention or because it is cold out.
This fall has been going pretty well so far.

The house is still a moving mess for the most part. I don't work at Wal-Mart anymore. I got fired for stupid reasons, which was proven since I get unemployment from them. I still work at the library, but I am looking for a desk job at a hotel preferably. My Lyme's is up and down right now, I haven't finished transferring all my paper work yet so I can see my family doctor, instead of the dude in Grinnel who was ripping us off. I have been having big issues with putting things off lately, I know about things I have to get done, but I just seem to forget until I am in bed at night. It is very frustrating. I have been working on it.
A couple of days ago, we decided to take on a special needs dog. Her name is Lulu and she came from a drug house. She is ten weeks old and can't walk. Basically our goal is in the next six months is to teach her how to walk and be a normal dog her age. She is a sweet white terrier mix. She is always so happy too. Today we got her to play with all the puppies and it was pretty fun. We did have one couple come and look at buying one of the puppies today, but they said they would have to think about it. They were looking for a smaller chihuahua then these. Mine at the biggest are only ten pounds, but then I guess they were looking for something tiny. I really need to get at least one sold because I am taking Coco in to get fixed in a week and a half. So I could really use the money for that.
My family has the flu, so I am avoiding them for now. I have started my Christmas shopping. Everyday is a challenge to unpack more and get stuff done!

Located at 415 E Euclid Ave, Des Moines, IA 50313
Phone number is (515) 883-2888
I haven't been but a handful of times, but every time I go I wish I could come back more often. I live a good distance away from there so I really can't get there often. The last time I went my boyfriend found two really awesome older games he had been looking for. We hadn't been able to afford these games used at a local store because they were nearly $30 each! We got them at Almost Free for only $4.00 each. We noticed that they had brand new VHS movies for only 5o cents each. Which we still watch them and I have family that does too! I collect a certain time of cat figurine, it has to look a certain way to fit into my collection and they are very hard to find. They actually had three there and they were even willing to negotiate on the price. Now I promise this is a very honest review! The store was a little hot, and it may have been a little dusty. The stuff they had for sale though was in good shape, and for the prices it was a nice store. No, you aren't going to get a super organized Wal-Mart setting. It is a little disorderly, but it makes it fun to explore. They also had a large box of free items out front. They have a good variety of brand new, used, and very used items. It is a good place to shop if you don't have a huge wallet. Every where I go I am looking for a bargain. I got two huge rolls of shelf paper there one time I went for only a dollar. I would go back, and I highly recommend this place to my friends and family.

A friend of mine posted this on their facebook page, and I found so many of these things true to me and truly funny! Read and see how many you relate to!
--More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.
--Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
--That's enough, Nickelback.
--I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.
--Do you remember when you were a kid, playing Nintendo and it wouldn't work? You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically fix the problem. Every kid in America did that, but how did we all know how to fix the problem? There was no Internet or message boards or FAQ's. We just figured it out. Today's kids are soft.
--There is a great need for sarcasm font.
--Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the hell was going on when I first saw it.
--I think everyone has a movie that they love so much, it actually becomes stressful to watch it with other people. I'll end up wasting 90 minutes shiftily glancing around to confirm that every one's laughing at the right parts, then making sure I laugh just a little bit harder (and a millisecond earlier) to prove that I'm still the only one who really, really gets it.
--How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
--I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.
--I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.
--The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a text.
--Was learning cursive really necessary?
--I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.
--Whenever someone says "I'm not book smart, but I'm street smart", all I hear is "I'm not real smart, but I'm imaginary smart".
--MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
--I find it hard to believe there are actually people who get in the shower first and THEN turn on the water.
--Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.
--I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.
--Bad decisions make good stories.
--Why is it that during an ice-breaker, when the whole room has to go around and say their name and where they are from, I get so incredibly nervous? Like I know my name, I know where I'm from, this shouldn't be a problem....
--You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you've made up your mind that you just aren't doing anything productive for the rest of the day.
--Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after DVDs? I don't want to have to restart my collection.
--I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.
--I hate being the one with the remote in a room full of people watching TV. There's so much pressure. 'I love this show, but will they judge me if I keep it on? I bet everyone is wishing we weren't watching this. It's only a matter of time before they all get up and leave the room. Will we still be friends after this?'
--While watching the Olympics, I find myself cheering equally for China and USA. No, I am not of Chinese descent, but I am fairly certain that when Chinese athletes don't win, they are executed.
--I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Damnit!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail. What'd you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?
--I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.
--It should probably be called Unplanned Parenthood.
--I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.
--Even if I knew your social security number, I wouldn't know what do to with it.
--Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, hitting the G-spot, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet my ass everyone can find and push the Snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time every time...
--It really pisses me off when I want to read a story on CNN.com and the link takes me to a video instead of text.
--I wonder if cops ever get pissed off at the fact that everyone they drive behind obeys the speed limit.
--I think the freezer deserves a light as well.
--I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lites than Kay.
--The other night I ordered takeout, and when I looked in the bag, saw they had included four sets of plastic silverware. In other words, someone at the restaurant packed my order, took a second to think about it, and then estimated that there must be at least four people. Too bad I was eating by myself.

It has been a while since I last updated. I just haven't been in the writing mood even though I have a lot to write about. Coco had her puppies on Aug. 16th. She gave birth to six live puppies and one still born fetus. That is an amazing record for a chihuahua. Sadly the next day the runt of the litter died. He had a lot going against him, because when he was born he was half the size of the others, and Coco bit off his umbilical cord too short and bit a whole in his stomach. Chris and I tried so hard to save him. We even took him to the vet. In the end though his little heart couldn't support his body. Chris buried him in the front yard. I cried all after noon that day. Yesterday Chris spent all day putting up a fence around the entire yard so we can take the dogs outside. He even custom made a gate for it! It looks great. Justin helped out by pulling weeds and a bunch of plants we didn't want. We are going to lay down some pavers the make a area for the trash cans. It is going to look really nice.
I have already had one company come out and do a estimate on the basement. It needs water proofing and reinforcement done. It came to a larger total then I first expected, so now I am checking with other companies and looking into financing. Once we have the basement water proofed then we can slowly work on making it into several different rooms that I want and need. I am considering going into the grooming business, but haven't really decided yet.
I got curtains for Chris's room on sale at Walmart, they are navy blue. It was an awesome deal. I also found a really good deal on tennis shoes for Chris and Justin, both them needed a new pair pretty bad. Things are going pretty well here now, we are getting along well. I haven't been to work at walmart in nearly a month. I am still waiting for paper work to process. I went and applied for unemployment today, and they said I should get it. A lot of stuff has been going on lately. Things have been getting done and that makes me pretty happy too. The yard is looking good and so is the house too. So I feel like I have finally accomplished something around here. Which is hard to do because I am always so tired. My Lyme's gives me such bad fatigue. I am so tired right now it isn't funny.

I think the hardest part of my disease is what it does to my memory. I have really bad memory, especially short term. I often repeat myself, and ask questions m ore then once. I forget where I am going or what I am doing. Thank god I have Justin to help me remember to take all the meds that I am on. I am on four different things, that I take at three different times during the day.
Not like I don't have enough to do already, I have decided to foster a dog.
Her name is Cody and she will be staying with me until she can find a forever home. She seems like such a sweet dog. I hope bringing her to Iowa will help her find a true home.
That's all that is going on now, not much else really.

The link to my new blog is: http://sims3arcane.blogspot.com/
Basically the concept is to take a Sim and start out super poor and in ten family generations became sucessful and rich. So I have created Sophia Arcane. I will be posting a blog about my game play and her story progression as I go. Please feel free to comment!

I own a guitar I never learned how to play. I still can't drive a stick shift car properly.
But.... I guess over all I am pretty lucky. I have four loving dogs, two cats, and a amazing boyfriend who treats me like a princess. Honestly I don't think I would be able to live without any of them. I don't have a ton of friends, but if I really needed the ones I have, they would be there for me.
I have been really feeling over whelmed lately, because I am working at the library and walmart all the time and I am trying to get things done at home. I am lucky Justin has such great patience with me.
Well, basically this blog was just a random rant to get some thoughts off my mind.
Sunday, June 14, 2009
Poor Coco is on her period, so Garth keeps trying to hump her. We really need to get moved because then Garth will go live with Chris. I am so anxious to move, I want to plant a nice garden and have a nice area for the dogs in the back yard.
I haven't had much time to volunteer with all the time I have been working lately. I have had to pick up extra hours at the library because they don't want to hire some one else. So that took away from my volunteer time on Thursdays. Walmart has been giving me Mondays and Tuesdays off instead of Tuesdays and Thursdays off. So it has been a weird adjustment. I have to give up the things I want to do in order to do the things I need to do. Working is what I need to do, and volunteering is sadly optional. I really enjoy it.
Well I am wrapping up this post because I have tons of errands to run tomorrow, I have to get dog food, cat food, puppy pads, and paper towels. I am also taking Chris in to meet my boss. I hope he can replace the guy leaving from the connection center.
Friday, June 05, 2009
Anyways, we are having a get together at the house tomorrow night. We have several friends over to play this new Xbox game called 1 VS 100. It is a trivia game. Jeremy is bringing his Xbox360 over and we are going to all play it. I am not sure how many people are coming, but I invited about a dozen.

It has been interesting. I am going to get tested next Tuesday to find out if I have Lyme Disease. I am nervous because I want to have it and not to have it at the same time. It would mean a cure for so many little problems and yet it would mean one big problem. Things are good between me and Justin. I love him as much as ever. Right now Sam is cuddled up next to me, draped over my arm. I am going to volunteer tomorrow, and I am taking Holden with me. He is going with me because I am spending most of the day with him. Mickey is going into the hospital for most of the day to have tests done. I think I am going to meet Justin's sisters on Friday. I am kinda excited about that. He talks about them often, and then I have a big baby shower gift for his one sister.
Things are going great at Clothing Without Walls. I really enjoy volunteering there. I enjoy the fact that I am helping people. We have been increasing sales a lot lately, which I am super happy about. I hope we can catch up on the rent soon. Once we get the basement organized I want to get some more local churches involved with volunteering and donations, I would love to see more traffic there and to have it more well known. It is nice because Justin goes with me every Tuesday and then Chris goes with me at least once a week. So I am not doing it all by myself.

I was able to get all this information about Lyme Disease from a site. The link it sat the bottom of the page. It was decided that my mother had Lymes Disease even before I was born, so with that, every child in our family has it. Most Lyme Disease is not diagnosed because of the fact it has so many symptoms. It is never the same between two people. There are five in my family and none of us are the same, but we all share this disease. Below are most symptoms and misdiagnoses.
Early symptoms soon after exposure by tick bite:
Skin rash around tick bite - about 75% of cases have this rash; often hot to the touch but not painful; may have bullseye shape.
Erythema migrans (EM) - the official name for the tick bite skin rash
Swollen lymph nodes
Neurological symptoms - often occurring some time after exposure, from weeks to years later.
Radiculitis (numbness, tingling, burning)
Poor motor coordination
Difficulty with concentration
Change in mood
Changed sleeping habits
Nerve damage - in the arms and legs
Encephalomyelitis - including its various symptoms Encephalomyelitis of such as:
Motor coordination problems
Heart abnormalities - less than 10% of Lyme patients get heart problems
Shortness of breath
Chronic skin disorders
It can also cause these complications:
Heart damage - rare if Lyme is treated.
Persistent fatigue Prenatal infection - the unborn child can get Lyme disease from a pregnant woman
For a diagnosis of Lyme disease, the following list of conditions have been mentioned in sources as possible alternative diagnoses to consider during the diagnostic process for Lyme disease:
Ehrlichiosis - may be similar to early Lyme disease.
Chronic fatigue syndrome
Epstein Barr virus
Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis
Systemic lupus erythematosus
Mesothelioma (type of Lung conditions)
Reaction to arthropod bite
Rocky mountain spotted fever
Gonococcal arthritis (type of Infectious arthritis)
Human monocyte ehrlichiosis infection (transmitted by Lone Star tick)
Tick-borne relapsing fever (type of Relapsing fever)
Human granulocytic anaplasmosis infection
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
Reflex sympathetic dystrophy
Irregular heart rhythm
Attention deficit disorder
Chronic pain disorder (type of Pain Disorder)
Inflammatory eye reaction
Lou Gehrig's disease
The other diseases for which Lyme disease is listed as a possible alternative diagnosis in their lists include:
Acute rheumatic fever
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Cold & Flu
Dysthymia/seasonal depression disorder, PND
Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis
All the information above was found at http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/l/lyme_disease/intro.htm
If you feel that you have many of these symptoms or have been diagnosed with several of these things, then please be tested for Lyme Disease!

In a way this really hit close to home. The woman in the movie is dieing from a bad heart, and almost my entire family is suffering from a disease that they may not be able to afford to live with. That's why I am doing what I can to help them raise money to help pay for their medical expenses so they can live full healthy lives. My mom has started a fundraiser call Phoneraiser. Basically all they have to do is gather used ink cartridges and old cell phones. We can mail them into this company which will then recycle them, and pay us. All the money my mom makes will go toward paying for their medical treatment. My mom also sells homemade baked goods. We are having a bake sale at Clothing Without Walls on May 16th, 9:30am-12:30pm.
Thursday, May 07, 2009
First off I would like to list the symptoms they have that I am familiar with. I know there is more that they have, that I have no listed. Also as it states on the site for Iowa Lyme Disease Association, having the following symptoms does not ensure you have Lyme Disease, and there is no one test to find if you do think you have it. The exact type of Lyme Disease my family has, has not been decided yet.
Early Symptoms Include:
Fatigue(My mom always wears out so easily and the older the kids get the easier they do)
Muscle and Joint pain(We thought my mom had Fibro myalgia, which was caused by this)
Headache(My mom has had migraines forever)
Fever, chills(constant colds, and flu's for the next few symptoms)
Rash - bulls eye, or other shape, or multiple rashes
Then Later on Symptoms:
Continual flu-like symptoms'
Muscle weakness and pain(My mom was told by her doctor she can only work 3 hours a day)
Stiff, crunchy neck
Sore throat, swollen glands
Unexplained, weight gain
or weight loss
Balance problems(my mom has fallen several times and broken bones and dislocated parts because of this)
Loss of reflexes
Tingling in the extremities
Tourettes(thank god none of this YET)
Mood swings(Sorry mom, your very moody)
Poor concentration(my brother can read to you for an hour straight, but you have him doing an activity with you and he will walk away in the middle because he will forget what he is doing)
Depression(my mom and my brother Dakota, both have had to deal with this a lot)
Difficulty making decisions
Difficulty organizing(umm the kids rooms are a mess, and they can't seem to get in a system)
Irregular Heart Beat
(My mom lost both my sisters before birth, Dakota was born deaf, and the kids have all had various birth defects)
When to comes to treatment, it can get pretty technical. To keep it short and simple, my family will be on medication for the rest of their life, and have to go to the doctor for treatment for the rest of their lives. These treatments are extremely expensive and are not covered by insurance. The medication will be, but the treatments won't. Many people and families go into extreme debt because of this disease. If it goes untreated, it will eventually kill you.
My family has decided to start a Phoneraiser to raise money to help pay for medical expenses. Basically all I am asking is for your old cell phones, and old ink cartridges. We mail them to a company that recycles them and then they pay us, which will be put toward medical bills. Mickey is only seven and Holden is only ten, and they have been sick most of their childhood. I hope this has been informational and as I learn more I will be putting more up.

Life has been interesting for sure. I have been doing some volunteer work for Clothing Without Walls. I am really loving it. I like helping out with a cause that helps other people. I am hoping that I can eventually help them raise enough money to help with catch up with the rent of the building they are in. I have been working at the Library for a few weeks now and I like it. Except some times it is way too quiet. I have a had a migraine for the past few days, which has sucked really bad. My court date for the puppies is coming up on May first. I am looking forward to seeing that creep in court.
Things have been kinda quiet around here mostly. My moms garden is growing well and the weather is finally starting to warm up super nice. It rained a little today, but other then that, the sun was shining all day long. It was beautiful. I went by moms and she made me little cards for me to hand out to people for clothing without walls. Krystal has been helping me and Justin helps on Tuesday nights. Jeremy won't help at all. I really like volunteering though. I can't wait to go back on Tuesday, I have a bunch of hangers to be sorted out between now and then though.

We were over at Krystals and he would not behave!
The one on the left is a picture of roses and it has a sticker on it that says 'Whats your line?'
I thought it was pretty funny.
The one on the right was made with an ad from the American Heart Association.
But Coco proudly popped out four beautiful puppies!!
