Scampi and stuff

Scampi is fitting right in. He is a pretty good dog. Has barked a few times but mostly it is a whine. He has decided that the rocker that sits next to the computer is his. Now this has upset Susie because she thought it was hers! The cats are starting to realize that they are as big as he is so there is nothing to fear. Buddy will pop anybody so that takes care of that. Scampi is afraid to go by him sometimes. Buddy stalks him. Buddy will get in between Scampi and us and just watch him like he is saying " I dare you."  Sebastian ignores him completely and Susie hisses and hoits him. Big Daddy walks up to him and rubs on him and all of the younger ones puff up and hiss. Little bit pretnds like he is not there and Blackie runs and hides. We got him a few toys. He plays hard when he plays. Tennis balls are a nono. He rips the cover off of them! His favorite is a sock tied in a knot.

Yesterday morning I did a really dumb thing. Belle was out and I was looking for her, I spotted her in the next field over and I turned and headed at a run for the barn to get a feed bucket. Next thing I know I am flat on my back, out of breath wondering if I was going to live. I had left a wire up on the electric fence and I ran right into. I did not remember that I had only unhooked 1 wire. The top wire is at my throat level. Today I have bruices across my throat that looks like somebody tried to kill me. My shoulders are bruiced also but I am not sure why. Maybe from the way I hit the ground. The bruices are on the top of my shoulders. My back is sore today also. I am walking like an old woman today.

Last night Pat and I went to the store and I put a patio set in the layaway. I am looking forward to getting it and setting it up. I have been wanting one for a long time.

The sun is shining today and the wind is blowing. Feels like March might be coming in like a lion! So I am gonna get outside and see if I can do something in the yard to clean up the winter mess.

After doing a bit of research, I believe that he is an Italian Greyhound(Thanks Lori). He weighs 10 pounds and is about 14 inches at the shoulders. Right now I am trying out the name Scampi. He has finally barked! Pat called and I do believe that he heard his voice!

an update

I am feeling much better today. Weak but at least I do not feel sick! I did not do much yesterday, a little bit of laundry and some dishes. The machines did most of the work! LOL. I ate a little bit. O yea and I lost 5 pounds in 2 days. I know that won't stay away , but it sure was nice to look at the scales and it say 178 instead of 183! LOL

Yesterday evening Pat took me and Brook to Tae Kwon Do. We were not doing the exercise class this week because of getting the students pretested for their belt tests. So there was no worry about me overdoing anything. On our way home from there Pat thought he saw a baby dear laying on the side of the road. He asked me if I saw that but I did not so he backed up and said no that he must have been wrong. Then he decided that he did not back up far enough. After backing up about 20 more feet, we both saw it. No, not a baby deer but a puppy!. We thought that maybe it was hung up on the fence because it had a collar on and it was in line with the bottom wire on the fence. I got out to free the poor thing and it moved away so I knew it was not hung up. I approached it and snapped my fingers at it and said come here and he did. His tail was tucked in and he was shivering hard. I picked him up and he immediately snuggled in. I walked over to the truck and told Pat that I was getting in and taking him home. He did not say anything so off we went. We weren't but a mile from home at that time. This little dog was dumped in a place where there were no houses for 1/4 mile in either direction. He nestled his little head up in my neck and whimpered the whole way home. He had a collar on, a flea collar. When we got him in the house and I got a better look at him I knew he was not a puppy, not real old either I don't think. He looks like a miniature doberman. He was so happy running around back and forth between Brook and Pat. His tail going 100 miles an hour. I put down some food for him and finished fixing our dinner. He would go get a bite and take it over to Pat's feet and eat it. After dinner He met Susie. Oops! 1 razor claw to the nose and he was gone! He went under Pat's seat so fast! I took him outside and told him to potty and he went right to his business. Some one had gone to the trouble of housebreaking this dog, placed a flea collar on him and dumping him? Oh yea, one more thing he has been neutered! I mentioned bed and he understood me I supposed because he went in the kitchen and laid down in the corner! I took him out one more time to potty and then back in. I placed an old sweatshirt where he was ly before and told him to go to bed and he went.

This morning Pat was delighted with him and picked him up and put him on the bed. Poor thing peed. I told Pat that he had asked to go out not play! O well they needed washing anyway.

Right now I have 2 computer buddies, Sebastian and the dog with no name yet.

I think it has become official, I have a zoo!

My question

My question is this.... who sent me the virus? I have been up all night downloading and I am sick of it! Did some uploading too. Hope it will self destruct in 24 hours.



This stomach virus is the pits!

About my last entry. I wish I could take credit for writing it. I have had that for a long time. I found it yesterday when I was cleaning out a drawer and I thought of all the women and girls out there that I know.

Grown Woman or Girl?

Grown Woman or Girl?   Girls leave their schedule wide-open and wait for a guy to call and make plans.
Grown women make their own plans and nicely tell the guy to get in where he fits in.

Girls want to control the man in their life.
Grown women know that if he's truly hers, he doesn't need controlling.

Girls check you for not calling them.
Grown women are too busy to realize you hadn't.

Girls try to put a man 'on lock' by using sex.
Grown women know that it's the sex of the mental kind that makes a man
want to 'lock' you down.

Girls are afraid to be alone.
Grown women revel in it-- using it as a time for personal growth.

Girls ignore the good guys.
Grown women ignore the bad guys.

Girls worry about not being pretty and/or good enough for their man.
Grown women know that they are pretty and/or good enough for any man.

Girls try to monopolize all their man's time (i.e., don't want him hanging with his friends).
Grown women realize that a lil' bit of space makes the 'together time even more special -- and goes to kick it with her own friends!

Girls think a guy crying is weak.
Grown women offer their shoulder and a tissue.

Girls want to be spoiled and 'tell' their man so.
Grown women 'show' him and make him comfortable enough to reciprocate w/o fear of losing his manhood.

Girls get hurt by one man and make all men pay for it.
Grown women know that that was just one man.

Girls fall in love, chase aimlessly after the object of their affection,
ignoring all 'signs'.
Grown women know that sometimes the one you love, doesn't always love you back-- and move on, without bitterness.

Girls will read this and get an attitude.
Grown women will read this and pass it on to other grown women

I am hereby officially tendering my


resignation as an adult. I have decided I would


like to accept the responsibilities


of an 8 year-old again.

I want to go to McDonald's and think that it's a four star restaurant


I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle

and make a footpath with rocks.

I want to think M&Ms

ATT000331.gifare better

than money because you can eat them.

I want to lie under a big gum tree and

run a cold drink stand with my friends

on a hotATT000361.gifsummer's day.

I want to return to a time when life

was simple, when all you knew were colours,

multiplication tables, and nursery rhymes,ATT000391.gifbut

that didn't bother you, because you didn't know what you didn't know and you

didn't care. All you knew was to be

happy ATT000421.gifbecause you were blissfully

unaware of all the things that should make you worried or upset.

I want to think the world is fair. That everyone is honest and good.

I want to believe that anything is possible.

I want to be oblivious to the complexities of life and be overly excited by the

little things ATT000451.gifagain.

I want to live simple again.

I don't want my day to consist of

computer crashes, ATT000481.gif mountains of paperwork,

depressing news, how to survive more days in

the month than there is money in the bank,

doctor's bills, gossip, illness, and loss of loved ones

I want to believe in the power of

smiles, ATT000541.gifhugs, a kind word, truth,

justice, peace, dreams, the imagination, mankind, and making snowmen in the snow.

So . . . here's my cheque book and my car keys,

my credit cards and my bank statements.

I am officially resigning from adulthood.

And if you want to discuss this further,

you'll have to catch me first, cause........


....."Tag! You're it."

with the good came some bad.

Today was a good day with a real bad part in it. Pat and I took Brook and went to the flea market. We went there to get us some new leather jackets. Actually he got a new one, and I got my first! I had been wearing my daughter's jacket when we rode the motorcycle. We paid $300 for the pair. Ouch! Yea we could have gotten some cheaper ones, but we liked these and the cheaper ones are cheaper made also. On our way home we decide to stop and pick up some food to eat rather than me cook today since it was getting a bit late. We had just decided where we were going to eat when an idiot decided that he could cross the road before we got there. It seems like it lasted forever. I see this truck turning thru the intersection making a left hand turn in front of us and I know that no matter what we were going to be in an accident. I am watching the truck and Pat is trying to avoid it. If the other driver had been paying any attention at all the accident never would have happened. I see him hit us( I am turned in my seat some watching him) , Pat did not realize that we had actually been hit. He almost moved the truck but for once listened to me and did not move it at all after coming to a stop. The other driver backed up and moved his truck off to the side. Our law here says do not move vehicle until police tell you to. I checked with Brook right away and she says she is fine. I get out and look at the truck and I know we are in trouble. I look at the guy and I said do you have insurance and he said no. Somehow I already knew that. I had just said that to Pat a minute before when I saw his truck and the tags on the truck. So anyway the police get there ( I had called 911 on the cell phone) and ask for everything and next thing I know they are putting handcuffs on the guy. He is driving on a suspended license and no insurance. We are okay. A bit sore and shook up but nothing some aspirin and rest won't fix. The truck on the other hand is hurt. Due to Pat's skill in  driving he was able to avoid a head on collision and we were hit behind the door on the bed at the gas tank. The truck is only 3 years old so I am not sure how they will fix it. Repair the damage or replace the bed. I hope replace the bed! Our insurance has to pay for it since he did not have any. Lucky for us we are not at fault so it will not raise our rates. I don't know everything. The truck may or may not be his. If it is not then the legal owner is liable for the damages.

After that was all over we went to Kentucky Fried Chicken and got a bucket and went home. No washing dishes, no cooking. Good part of day. New jackets , good part of day. We are alive, very good part of the day.


The weather this morning is for the pits! They are predicating that we will have an ice storm. Right now it is raining and the temperature is dropping. 35 degrees right now, almost at the freezing mark. The wind chill has it at 26 degrees. Now I know there are plenty of people out there with colder weather so I don't complain too much. But ICE? I hate ice. IT is so dangerous!

My rooster is pretty smart. He has watched the cats come up to the door and knock on it when they want in to eat or just want in. So now he is pecking at the door. He will stand there and start popping the door with his beak. He thinks he is part cat anyway.  So my little piggies did not get here yesterday after I spent 3 hours clearing out the pigpen. It was not an easy job. It was full of weeds. Not just any weeds but 6 feet high weeds with thorns! I don't know why they did not arrive. But I am ready for them when they do! Note.... I need to make sure old freezer is empty to load it up with day old bread from bread store. It is cheap and a good way to keep the pigs sweet!( By sweet I mean the meat!) Appartently there is some kind of a mixup with the pigs. Somebody sold pigs that did not belong to them and the guy that bought the pigs is supposed to give us our pigs back. We will see. So no more on pigs until I actually see them in my pen.

So back to the weather sort of. I did a quiz this morning that I found in the journal I live in Soap Land. I do not agree with everything that it says. I will admit that part of it is true.


You Are Wind Strong and overpowering
A force to be reckoned with, no one dares cross you
You have the power to change everything around you

You are best known for: your wrath

Your dominant state: commanding
What Type of Weather Are You?

What a day this has been! This is the second time I have written this entry. No AOL did not lose it I did. I highlighted everything to change the font And hit the wrong button and everything went poofed!
So now lets see, my day was busy and not busy. I did not get any housework done except for a swishing of the bathroom and one load of whites done.
This morning I went to the feed store and bought some horse feed then on to the grocery store for some people food. I got a great deal on bone less chicken breasts. Gotta love it when they mark down the meat! So anyway I do a bit of shopping. Bought me a couple of new pot holders for Valentine's Day next year. LOL Pink heart shaped pot holders. I like keeping my pot holders in season! LOL. I get home and take care of the hungry animals and that included Pat. Then I fixed lunch, packed it and sent Pat off to work. After Brook cam home from school, we got ready to head back to the school. She had a parent teacher conference today. Poor Brook is so upset with all the stuff going on she is getting into trouble at school. Not real bad but enough that the teacher is concerned. She is lying and just generally getting into trouble. I hate seeing what this is doing to her. After that we went to Pizza Hut and she did her homework before our pizza go tthere. I was real good with it. I ordered thin crust, half the cheese and mushrooms no meat. So anyway we eat then go to Tae Kwon Do. Before heading in there I go to the Goodwill store that is next door to the studio. I find what I have been looking for! I have been looking for a green vase big enough to use as an umbrella stand. Tonight it was there. I knew if I waited long enough that someone would give one up! I buy that and head to Tae. Today us moms got a real workout. In addition to the stretching and punching, kicking was added. Yes kicking. Not just a few kicks, but 500 kicks. Yes you read that right 500 kicks. We did 5 different kicks, 50 per leg for a total of 500. I can't belive I did it but I did! I am proud of myself. After the first 200 I had to take a break ever 10 -15 kicks but I kept on until I completed them all! Now does anyone know how to fix rubber legs? Today was a full hour for our workout. I am loving it! It is helping to keep me motivated to lose this weight and get myself in a healthier state of body. Now I am home and I am tired! While writing this entry a few things happened. I got a phone call. Tomorrow afternoon I will be getting 2 piglets delivered here. They are 8 weeks old and just weaned. I am going to have to get out there and tramp down the weeds growing in the pen I made for them. they are too little to do it themselves. Ahem.... theses are 6 foot weeds LOL. They are a gift from my son in law. Looking forward to fresh sausage and ham. OOOO and ribs, I love ribs.
The next thing that happened was Big Daddy came in the house and our Blackie is scared of him. Well He growls at Big Daddy all the time, this time Big Daddy jumped him this time. I broke it up before any damage was done, but that will not be tolerated in the house. I know they will get into it but I prefer it to be done outside. That way Blackie has a chance to get away from him! Blackie is a scardy cat. I really need to get him fixed because he can't do a god job of defending himself. After being fixed other cats willnot feel threatened by him. I have enough cats that it is expensive to get them all fixed. I have to take it a bit at a time. Eventually they will all be fixed. So that si it for now. I am going to do a bit of reading, maybe play a game or 2 and go to bed. Take care everyone.

a blessing

Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you. -
Pueblo Blessing

My Brook's heart is breaking. Her Mama found a place to live and will be moving March 1st. My heart is breaking hearing her cry. She told her mama that she did not want to move. Her mama said yes you are. You are the reason I have been looking for a place in your school area otherwise I would have moved months ago.
I pray it comes out ok. Maybe she will let her stay with me at least until school is out.

Sunday, February 12, 2006

Just got an email that AOL is raising the cost of service. Don't know how long I will keep paying this price

Saturday, February 11, 2006

My life and the life of those I love will soon change for the worse. My daughter will be moving as soon as she can and taking Brook so she can raise her in the way she wants to without my interference. I prediciate that Brook's grades will drop as school will be the only place she will be able to move without having her mother's hard hand on her. She informed Brook that she will put her in juvie hall if she does not do what she wants her to do. According to her I am Brook's problem. I am the reason Brook is lieing to her. Funny thing is, Brook did not lie to me before this. Funny thing is, when Brook got into trouble she would tell me about it not try to hide it before this. Funny thing is, Brook NEVER had a low grade before this.

She told Brook that she would not be seeing me after they moved. She told me that yes she would send her away where they send unruly children and I would not get her because I am without a job and not married. Yes that is right, Pat and I are not legally married. Since GA changed their law again, our comman law marriage is no longer recongized. I have no legal rights to keep Brook. Candy thinks tof Brook as nothing more than property. She said I had her I can do what I want, she is mine. Where is the love? So what do I do? Lock her out of the house right now? Get charged with kidnapping if I do? Guess what, law says I have to give her a 30 day notice before kicking her out.

My heart is breaking. All this because I stopped her from punishing Brook even more over the same thing that she had already punished her for 3 times. And today. Because I stepped in again and said that Brook did not need to go out because she has not been on her meds for 24 hours yet. She has strep throat. Turns out that she had told Brook that she wanted her dressed and ready to go because she was taking her out to eat and wanted to talk to her about her behavior. When I heard that I said to her so you have to remove her from here when she is sick just to talk to her without me around? That was when all hell broke loose and she let me have it. I should have realize a long time ago that my daughter would always hate me. I should have made sure that I had permament custody of Brook before Candy got out of prision. No I screwed up and now Brook will pay for it. Pray for us send good karma what ever you do. If I am not posting for a while you know why.

An emergency request

Carlene is dire need right now. Her heart is breaking, she feels like she is falling apart. She is requesting prayers big time. Horseshoe Bend

weight, muscles, ect

I have been working on my weight trying to lose some of it. I really don't care where it goes as long as it goes. It is not coming off of my real fast. I am at 181 this morning for a loss of 5 pounds since January 1. Not real good but at least it is a loss not a gain! My sugar has been up and down, most times under 130 but a few times it shot up. I don't like that. I am going to have to monitor more carefully what I am eating to see what foods is causing it to do so. It is possible that I will have to get my medicine adjusted.

The last 2 weeks when I have been taking Brook to Tae Kwon Do has been real fun, I think. LOL No it has been. Mrs. Lee has been getting us mothers out on the floor and doing meditation and stretching exercises with us. These stretching exercises are unlike any I have ever done before! They give you a workout that you don't realize you are getting.(especially if you are an overweight, out of shape person like I am!)I have been stretching muscles I did not even know I had! These sections have lasted anywhere from 20-45 minutes. the section last night left me really sore. We did one thing where we stood up and spread our legs that bent our knees. Keeping our back straight we then proceeded to punch 100 times. Then we did some breathing exercises to relax and then to our massage! Yes, that is right, a massage! It really feels good to get one after doing the workout. Last night I woke up in PAIN! My legs were screaming and my chest felt like an elephant was sitting on it. The muscles on my sternum were sore big time! They were bunching up and pulling my shoulders inward which only made things worse! I finally found a way to lay in the bed and everything settled down. I am okay now, they are not hurting anymore. Well.... my legs are still hurting but my chest is not. Am I going to do it again? Yes. She wants us to punch like that everyday. I am going to try to do what she has been teaching us. It is easier doing it with someone but I guess I can do it alone. Maybe Brook will do it with me.

Cold this morning. 23 degrees right now. It is only expected to get to 40 today. They are calling for a major winter storm for us starting tonight. Remember I am in Georgia, any snow is a major storm! LOL So today I have to do the Southern thing and head to the grocery store! LOL I think it is so funny how when snow is predicted everyone heads to the store and strips the shelves! Normally I do not do that, but I really need to do some shopping! I am out of everything except TP.

Today is Grandparents day at Brook's school. I will be going there pretty soon. I will probably check Brook out after that and take her to the doctor. She cannot seem to shake this cough and congestion she has. Her chest is starting to hurt from all the coughing. It has been going on for a week now.

I am out of here now. Gonna read a few journals and whatnots. I have been reading yall journals. Sorry if I have not been commenting much lately. I have been trying to not be on the computer as much. I have so much to do around here, trying to get things in my world straightened up and clean. I have let some things go way too long.

That last piece

A few people have asked if I thought I do have a melancholic temperment. Truth is I do. The world goes too fast and I find life at home just fine. Yep, I do tend to brood about things. My thoughts get very dark at times. I try to shake them off and most times I succeed in doing so. Yep I am a soft hearted daydream. Silence is wonderful. I love to read a book, watch a movie or a soap opera and cry. They can be tears of happiness or sadness, but the tears flow everyday for some reason or another. Not only the tears but the laughter does also. To me it is a good outlet for my emotions. There have been days in my life, no years in my life, when I did not cry or laugh. The past almost 2 years of writing in my journal has been a wonderful time for me. I have met some wonderful people and been invited into their lives. I have cried and laughed, been angry, hurt and just everything. Yes, I am still a melancholic soul, but I am not longer lonely on top of that.

a fluff piece

You Have a Melancholic Temperament

Introspective and reflective, you think about everything and anything.
You are a soft-hearted daydreamer. You long for your ideal life.
You love silence and solitude. Everyday life is usually too chaotic for you.

Given enough time alone, it's easy for you to find inner peace.
You tend to be spiritual, having found your own meaning of life.
Wise and patient, you can help people through difficult times.

At your worst, you brood and sulk. Your negative thoughts can trap you.
You are reserved and withdrawn. This makes it hard to connect to others.
You tend to over think small things, making decisions difficult.
What Temperment Are You?

a bit more

The kids got out of school early today. They jumped the gun a bit if you ask me. No snow or ice just rain slick roads. Yes it did snow but at 10 it was rain and at 11 there was nothing there but rain. Right before 2 o'clock Brook comes walking in the door. Good thing she wore her heavy coat and hat today! I did not know that that school was let out. No announcement or anything just here comes the kids. Lucky for Brook we were home. In fact we had just gotten home about 15 minutes before she did. Pat and I had gone to the feed store to get some horse feed. What would she have done if no one had been there?

On to the next subject. I have a rooster. He is a friendly rooster. Good thing because the hens are not! He was given to me so I really had no choice in the kind I got. He is a pretty thing though. Poor thing had spent all of his first year of life in a cage by himself. He was raised to be a fighting rooster but apparently he failed the test for fighters. Lucky for him. That means he gets to live. I left him in his cage for a few days next to the cats so everybody can see each other and get used to one another. Isn't he a pretty boy?

Now here is the next newest member of our family. We are calling him Big Daddy. He is a big yellow tom cat that just showed up here. Susie must know him intimately because her last set of babies has a baby that looks just like him! This cat had to of been taken care of. No cat living on his own would ever get that fat! It is not just fur this big boy is heavy! He really likes Pat. Pat likes him too! We think that his owners must have moved and left him. Maybe they were moving to a place that would not take cats. No excuse. They could have found a home for him. It is possible that he is just catting around and  is now making 2 places home! LOL


So that is it for now. Need to get busy figuring out something for dinner before Tae Kwon Do.

update on Pam

I copied this from Pam's comment section.

Hey there :-)

I spoke with Pam today for a while.. she's having trouble with her
computer - can't get it to start up, etc. and isn't able to think
clearly at all right now to figure it out. So, until a tall, dark and
geeky caped computer tech shows up to save the day, I don't think Pam
will be back online herself for a bit.

I have created a yahoo group where i'll be posting updates daily after
I talk to the home team. I don't want to hijack Pam's comment space
permanently. Either go to and join, or e-mail me, and I'll add you.

I've let her know how many people are missing her and thinking of her, and praying for her... and we appreciate your love for her as well. She's an amazing woman. And y'all are amazing friends.

just a bit

I have not writen in a few days. Not much going on here except for the normal stuff. Every body has been passing a cold around. It seems no one wants to keep it. I just can't understand why no one wants to. It does give you that warm fuzzy feeling (or is it the medicine that does that?)

How is your weather? Cold here. Actually it is warm compared to when I went to bed! I went to bed and there was frost everywhere with the nippy feeling of snow in the air. 7 hours later, it just deels like rain. I was really looking forward to getting that white stuff that they were calling for. 2 inches of snow would let us at least have a snowball fight! Another thing is I sure would like to take some snow pictures! I love watching my animals play in the snow!

I have more to say just can't seem to wrap my brain around it. I think I hear my warm bed calling me to come back to it! Talk with you later!

Round Robin Challenage

Welcome! In case you just don't know, this is a Round Robin Challenage. What is Round Robin? Well Round Robin is a photo challenage that a group of us are doing. Each time is a different subject. For more information and a list of other journals participating GO HERE.

This time around I was the one that picked the subject. I picked Silly Animals. Why did I pick that particular subject? Well I have a lot of them! I have bucket carrying horses, fence jumping horses. I have a goat that likes to get on the roof. I have cats, boy do I have cats!. For this one I am using the cats.

This first photo is comman enough, cats on the bed. Darn them! I get out they get in.  From top is Buddy, then Blackie, last but not least is Sebastian.

This is Buddy on the couch. He really likes to hide in the cushions and sleep! You have to watch out or you will sit on him! Sometimes he is all the way behind them.


Buddy likes to sleep anywhere he can. I think his favorite place to sleep is with me or rather ON ME anytime day or night!

 I leaned forward and he took his chance! Hummmm wonder if I can finish my card game?  Maybe I can.  Ouch now stop that!   Ok that's it! Down now!

There you have it. I am not sure which one of us is the Silly Animal!
