Zombie Bride

My Halloween weekend was filled with a little fun stuff. But, mostly, I just sat at Chad's house and played video games. Modern Warfare 2 to be exact. It's our ritual, our bonding time, I suppose.

Alanea decided to be a zombie bride for Halloween. So, thanks to me and Chad... she was very creepy looking.



Oh, and someone did a lame job at rolling our yard this year. 2 trees? Really people!? C'mon! If you're going to do it, do it right!



And... since Halloween is over, I'm going to have to find a new layout for my blog. Stay tuned to find out what it looks like next...

Storm damage in Ider


You can see more pictures of the damage here where I got the above photo.

Nobody really knows if it was a tornado but it would have to have been in order to cause this much damage. It ripped through our area around 4:30AM on Oct. 25th. My house was in it's direct path but I guess it jumped us and the following cities in between me and Ider. Obviously, it hit Ider hard. Most of the damage in these pictures was done to the school but that is not the extent of it. Many people's homes were damaged also. There were no reported deaths just a couple of minor injuries treated at the ER later that morning. Amazing what natural things can do, huh?

New eating habits

Today marks week #2 of my plan to cut out as many Mello Yellos from my diet. I decided to do that not only to help me lose weight but also to help me feel better. I've had 3 16 oz. Mello Yellos. I've also had a couple of Dr. Peppers. In a 2 week period, that's good for me. I usually drink at least 2 16 oz. Mello Yellos a day. I haven't noticed any drop in weight but aside from the minor headaches from the lack of caffeine, I've felt pretty good. I've been drinking pink lemonade, water and my favorite cranberry apple juice. I've also started taking an all-in-one daily vitamin. I'm hoping that I start to feel even better soon. My eating habits aren't changing much. That's always been a toughy for me. But, I'm working on it. In the past couple of years, I've started eating a few more things than I normally would.

And that, is a big deal for me!

Crazy old people

This morning at around 8:30 AM, I, unfortunately was woke up to the sounds of my grandmother in a frenzy. Why? Because my dad's aunt was at her house ranting and raving claiming that my dad stole stuff from her rental house while was doing some work on it. Of course, this piques my interest. My curiosity gets the better of me and I get dressed and head on over to my grandmother's house with my dad. He was going to settle the matter. I was there for moral back-up as is the case in this family constantly. I sat, I listened for a good 45 minutes to an hour at them banter back and forth at each other. Then, she mistakenly said that my dad was seen at her rental house on Sunday getting things. She claimed that someone "put a bug in her ear" as to my dad being the one that's stealing from her. Well, I was at home for the majority of the day Sunday. We had visitors from North Carolina. They worked on my dad's race truck all day. I left Sunday around 6:30 or 7 PM. So, I proceeded to put my 2 cents worth in on the argument. We argued back and forth for a couple of minutes. She raised her fist back like she was going to hit me.

"Don't you dare hit me." I said.
"Don't you talk to me that way." She said.
"I'll say whatever I want to." I said.

She then slapped me in my mouth with her keys in her hand. Then, she left out of my grandmother's house like someone had lit a fire under her ass. She left saying she was going to go take a warrant out. Of course, we proceeded to tell her if she did that, I'd press charges of assault on her. My lip was already swelling up. It stayed that way for about an hour and when the swelling went down, I noticed I had a cut on my lip. If she had hit me any harder, she would've busted my lip. I don't guess she ever went to take out that warrant. We haven't heard anything from the police yet.

And to think, all of this happened before 10 AM!

After that eventful morning, my grandmother and I decided to go visit with my aunt. (Not the crazy one!) We sat and talked and enjoyed ourselves for a little while after having such a stressful morning. I also helped my aunt and her husband to set up more of their Etsy account. They sell homemade jewelry. Go check it out!

I spent the rest of the day with my hunny, of course. We went to grab a bite to eat and then came home and played MW2 and then watched The Big Bang Theory and a new episode of CSI. What an interesting yet freaky episode it was too. It was focused on hoarders. Hard to explain, you'd just have to see it. Basically, this lady was a hoarder and had dead bodies all in her house and in the backyard. She wasn't the one killing these people and hoarding them. It has a strange twist at the end. If you can catch it on tv, I definitely suggest watching it. Unless of course you're freaked out by such things.

I'm ending my night with this post and I will probably work on some school work in just a little bit.

Animal remains and television shows...

I spent most of my day just lying around the house being a lazy bum. I attempted to do some laundry. I got one load finished. Guess that's better than none, right? I did accomplish 2 assignments for my classes. That's more important than laundry, right? I read The Minister's Black Veil by Nathaniel Hawthorne. I also read Rappaccini's Daughter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. Both are interesting stories written in completely different ways. I would suggest anyone who enjoys reading to read them. They are short stories of course but they are very interesting nonetheless. (In my personal opinion, Black Veil was the best of the two.)

Then, I discover that my dogs have found some type of animal bone (it looks to be an old deer carcass) and are eating and wallowing in it. Greeeaat! Now, I have to give them a bath. [Note to hunters: Please, please dispose of your deer remains in a properly fashion so as my dogs can not find them. Unless of course, you'd like to come give them a bath everytime they find your disgusting leftovers. Thank you.] I wouldn't mind so much but they just had a bath 2 days ago and aren't filthy and disgusting already.

Later, I spent a nice evening with my love. We grabbed a bite to eat (chinese, his favorite.. not mine. But, compromise!) then headed home for some Teen Mom Finale. If you've never watched Teen Mom, I suggest you tune in to the new season when it finally airs. Maybe a new season with a new cast as well. Not that I don't enjoy the current cast, but it would be nice to find out what the other girls from 16 & Pregnant have been up to since having their children. By the way, the new season of 16 & Pregnant starts Oct. 26 so, tune in!

Right now, I'm watching 19 Kids & Counting. I really like this show. While I think it's crazy to have this many children, I do understand why they chose this lifestyle. They are wonderful people and I enjoy watching them.

Well, I think I'm going to go finish watching this episode.

Fall is in the air!

Today was a lovely, southern fall day. It was a decent temperature and there was a nice breeze blowing. This time of year is about the only time of year that I actually enjoy being outdoors. Don't get me wrong... I enjoy the summer months just as long as there's a nice place to cool off nearby. I can remember a time when it didn't matter to me what the weather was. I just enjoyed being outside no matter what. I would stay out until my parents would be calling me to come inside. [Oh to have those days back!]

Can you remember a time when nothing in the world mattered? I can. Can't we just go back to that time?

PS: Chad ordered our tickets for the Motion City Soundtrack concert on November 14, 2010 in Atlanta, GA at The Variety Playhouse. I'm so excited!

Stupid teenagers

Ok, tonight my dad got the police called on him while we were in Huddle House. Why? Because some immature teenagers were sitting at a table near us and my dad was picking on them a little bit. I guess they couldn't take it because they went into the bathroom and called the police. They told the police officer that my dad was harrassing them. It was quite funny because they were proud of themselves. They thought my dad was going to jail. I'm irritated because the police officer that handled it was talking very disrespectful to my dad. He was talking to him like he was 2 years old. I remember the little teenagers and if I ever see them out in public, I'll harrass them some more. It was very uncalled for. But, whatever. I just thought that was something interesting to write about.

Handmade Jewelry

Today was eventful, I'm still in the process of getting things ready for when Tonya and baby Nicholas get here. I have cleaned so much today. I still have a lot to do though. Even though, they will be spending a lot of their time with their family in a nearby city, (due to her grandmother being sick) I am still glad that I'm getting to see them for a little while. It's a rare occasion that we see each other more than once a year. This will make 3 times so far this year. :)

Oh and by the way,

My aunt has started an Etsy site for her handmade jewelry. See the link below if you want to visit. She and her husband make beautiful pieces. Currently, they only have one post on Etsy. But, they can also make custom items.

Plans for the weekend...

I got a call yesterday from my BFF Tonya saying that she would be coming down from NC. Unfortunately, it's because of family issues. But, I'm excited nonetheless because she will be bringing baby Nicholas with her. It's only been a couple of months since I've seen them but Nicholas is growing up so fast. I can't wait to just chill out with them this weekend. I will snap a few pictures and post them on here when the weekend is over. I'll post updates if I can.

PS: As you can see, I've changed my blog layout in honor of Halloween.

Supperseeds & Employeement

Ok, today, my mom, Chad, Alanea and I all went to Huntsville because my mom had to go have some test done. Well, she was telling us about this memo she received at work. Whoever wrote this memo clearly needs a spelling intervention. Instead of supercedes, they had "supperseeds" ... instead of employment, they had employeement. [We'll give them a little credit for that one because they only had 2 extra letters in there.] But, c'mon... supperseeds.. REALLY!? Even Alanea, a 10 year old, knew how to spell it correctly. And these people are business owners? REALLY!?

I just thought I'd share that random funny of the day!

I'm Forrest, Forrest Gump.



My little sister and I watched Forrest Gump last night. I love that movie. I can just about quote it word-for-word. Alanea had never watched it. She said it was a sad movie. LOL It is a sad movie. But, it's a great movie. Tom Hanks is a great actor.

09.13.2013

So, Chad and I were doing the whole wedding-talk thing. I've come up with our date which is 09.13.2013 and I know that is like 3 years from now. But, there's a significant reason for that date. We were trying to figure out teh table set up and seating of the venue we're thinking of using. It's quite a challenge. I wish I could just get David Tutera to come do the whole thing. It would make my life so much easier. I have put together pretty much everything myself. I've even written the ceremony word-for-word. Does that sound a little odd? Oh well. I'm odd. I've got 3 more years of planning to do. Who knows what I will come up with next.
