About Rubyblood part 2.

I should have left him there and ended the nightmare that he had become. I was just so desperate for someone to love me that I thought I deserved it. For those that have never been through this you may not understand. Even looking back to me from before it happened I don't know why I let it continue after the first punch or why I stayed so long.
Even through it all, I sent him the money to come back and the abuse didn't stop. I graduated from high school in May of 2006 hiding all the pain and fear I had inside of what was next.I cried as I realized my "care free days" were over. In one way school was carefree because all I had to do was focus on getting the best grade I could and not if my paycheck was going to be enough to pay the bills. Before the bills weren't mine and if they didn't get paid we would just move, but now I didn't have school to keep me away from the shifting moods of my mother. Now all I had was work for 8hrs to keep safe. More time for him to get mad and hit me, more time for me to me to worried about how I'm going to eat next because there isn't any food in the house.

About Rubyblood part 1

I learned early on to take care of myself ad not to look to much into the future because mine didn't look so good when you got to really thinking about it. Even though I ha talent I didn't have financial stability or moral support that I needed to get through the hard times that faced me. So I made bad decisions. I met a guy online and even after finding out he lied to me about being in college and that he was really homeless, I still stayed with him and even had him move here.He later moved in with a friend from high school.(More details here.) He stayed with her until the time he got thrown out and went to stay in the shelter. He stayed there for some time until he said he couldn't stand it anymore and he went back to Lafayette where he waited til I turned 18.

Painting crafts! Little frog bobble head

So I got this frog for secret Santa at work a few years ago. I always said I would paint him but never did as I never had any paints. Well just recently started painting stuff again and figured I have the brushes I have the paints so let's do this! Well I painted him and clear coated but I've noticed that the slightest touch is causing the paint to peel off. I painted and clear coated him in acrylics I'm not sure if that was the right choice. Any suggestions?

Looking back to high school I dont think I ever really tried to imagine what I would be doing at 23. I knew deep down no matter how much I wanted to go to college right after high school it wasn’t in the cards for me. I tried to apply for scholarships but anything that required my moms signature would never get completed because once they left my Hand she would lose them and I’m not so certain it wasn’t on purpose. I suppose I could have faked her signature but that just wasn’t in my line of thinking.

I bet you wonder why I have the thoughts about the one that gave birth to me or why I doubted myself. The reason? I was a child of what you may call a lost soul, and by that I mean a drug addict….

"batman shooting" in Colorado.

Just learned about this craziness. I just don't understand people and why anyone would do this. With what the shooter did it makes me think they had it planned for at least a few weeks. I know that this makes me reconsider going to the movie theaters, and it might do the same to others.

See the link below for details.


Disastrous cooking.

So at work we decided to do a carry in. I decided I wanted to make white chocolate brownies. I hadn't baked since high school and was a little nervous on doing this. Well after hours of working an cranking out 2 pans I realized it wasn't working the brownies too thin. The problem? Not enough flour so lucky me the old man rescued me and made white chocolate/dark chocolate/toffee bark. Yum! Almost all was gone before I got home.

Blue screen of death.

I finished the painting I was working on. I don't like it as much as thought I would, kind of wished I did it in color pencils or grease pencil instead. It was the first time I had painted on a canvas since high school so it could be worse. What do you think of it?

Siri a review. #iPhone #Siri

Siri: A review.

I can remeber when i first heard of siri I was so excited.I spent the first few days enamored with everything she said.What started as a blazing love affair, soon the newness began to fade. I found I spoke to you less and less and when we did speak the things you said to me were insane. The arguments grew more and more heated as time passed and you continued to tell me you could not do as I asked.

 I came to see I no longer loved you Siri. Infact I realized I never loved you but was simply infatuated with you. I do love that you read me my text messages but other than that I find you useless. So Siri I'm here to tell you that I'm trading you in as soon as possible for Siri 6.0.

A slow day

Working on a few things being a busy bee. At the doctors right now going to bed when I get home. Got a new hood!

Saturday, July 14, 2012

A very busy day!

Drove out of town to see family and get my hair dyed haven't got a picture yet where its not super dark so nothing to post yet. Was up way late and got stuck by a train so I didnt get to bed till about 8pm. Took the night off from work and was sick most of the night. Going back up next weekend to fix a pc!

Painting the day away.

I am working on a painting today of something. I have it all sketched out now an ready to go. I am thinking of getting back into painting again. I haven't done a painting since high school but after uncle sam and doing this I just have an itch to make things! Who knows maybe I'll give one away someday.

Thursday, July 12, 2012

Tomorrow is a busy day.

Tomorrow I have to work but I will be getting my hair dyed after work tomorrow. Totally just remember I had to pick something up before then. I won't spoil the anticipation of what color you will just have to wait and see.
Today I was helping Adge try to get her laptop warrantied out because it won't charge and see needed a phone to call them from. We at least learned at Samsung doesn't put the full serial number on the stickers that are on the box they leave 1-2 things out that are only on the bottom of the PC. So as you all probably have had happen is those stickers rub off pretty quick so the number we need isn't on there... and the PC wont power on for us to get it. So the hunt for the receipt has begun. I hope they can find it!

Have a good day all.

Almost time!

I will be finalizing the summer give away soon and getting it finalized! It's going to be huge!

Car problemz, I haz it solved.

Well all I can finally say that car drama has been resolved. No we didn't fix why running my ac shuts off the car, we did ever better! I bought a new car! I got a 2005 dodge caravan! Total after a new hood and plates and insurance less than $1400 cash! It depends on if I get the hood painted or not. I got it from the original owners and it has under 130,000 miles! Just hit 129400 when I pulled up the the house after getting it registered and plated today! Still have the old van but I no longer have to worry about breaking down without a backup. Best part is it has AC so no more driving in 100-110 degree weather with windows down. Very very excited its the newest I have ever owned and is so pretty and comfortable. Ok I'll quit gushing and show you pictures!

Squishy Baff

My daughter is one of those obsessive, persistent kids. She's been asking for Squishy Baff daily since Christmas. Excitement overwhelmed us both when I noticed that the commercials started hinting at it being in stores shortly before her birthday.

Where do I begin? Firstly, I was a little disappointed that $10 only buys two bath pouches. Then I was very disappointed when I discovered that it took both pouches to fill a mediocre sized tub. The consistency was a lot like tapioca pudding. After waiting around and stirring for ten minutes, the "foam" consistency came, but the novelty melted away. My once over zealous kid was cringing and sliding around trying to escape. I helped her out of the tub, but not before the tapioca hell-beads flew across my once clean bathroom. The clean up was awful. The Baff drained from the tub more from a wish and a prayer than the assistance of the dissolving solution.

In the words of my four year old daughter, "This is stupid."

NOTE from Rubyblood:
After doing some research I found that the chemical used to make the "squishy-ness" is actually known to cause serious issues! Check HERE for details.

A day of family.

Had a busy day yesterday trying to do catch up now. It was my aunt Teresa and uncle Charlie's 37th anniversary! And to celebrate they did a renewal of their vows and had another wedding. It was a day of family coming in that I almost never get to see so I was up all day.

Thorne Manor and other bizarre tales by Diane Wing review.

Click here to purchase.
This is a book of short stories written by the author. I have to say of the many in the book Thorne manor was my favorite and I wished it was longer! Thorne manor is the main piece in this book and is 104 pages long. The main character is Heather who is recently divorced from her abusive husband, Robert king. She is trying to follow through with her dream of owning a place of entertainment, a place to host parties and weddings. The twist? She wants to have a collection of physics of different abilities on hand for readings. Over the course of the story she finds herself having to deal with Robert,hateful ghosts,and pain from the past repeating itself. In this tale she also finds love in an unexpected place,the arms of Erick Thorne. I am hoping that this short story launches a series as I want to know more. Although I can assume what happened at the end I liked the characters so much that I would like a spin off series to launch and the author prove me wrong on my assumptions.

By invitation only left me curious at what was causing the hole. I felt my heart strings being pulled at by the grief Loretta felt after losing Toby. The story left me wondering if the creature was really sent by Toby or if it just read her mind and used that name to get what it wanted.
The other stories contain a girl who prefers dreams to the waking world. A demon who in his demand to be pampered so he can continue his plans of conquer seals his fate. A woman who should have read the fine print. A man whose hatred for one orange tabby gets him in a Hairy situation. And a woman whose urge to be accepted by others ignores her spirit guide getting herself into a world of trouble.

I would highly recommend this book to any with the love of paranormal.

I received this book in exchange for a review. All thoughts are my own.

If you would like to purchase this or other books by Diane Wing please go HERE.

Lamb of God's frontman Arrested for Manslaughter #FreeRandyBlythe

Well I just learned this while going through my email. Its a crazy situation to find oneself in. I can't imagine what Randy is thinking right now. It was in heat of a moment and he didnt mean any harm to the fan. I see this causing new laws to be passed in the States to prevent this kind of thing.

See HERE for more details.

Crazy dreams

So I had a crazy dream last night. I was walking down a street without pavement, just a dirt path. It's hard to explain but I could see the united states up on the horizon like I was looking down at a map. The states were named and outlined but in the dream it was if that was natural to see it like that. When I was walking I looked up and Illinois was labeled Nevada. While I was just looking I saw a small orange flame pop up and then it just kept rolling over itself and getting bigger as I looked I could tell something massive was exploding. Then I noticed it got really hot and I looked up and fire balls were dropping from the sky. I began to run the other direction but I wasn't scared I was curious. I even had my iPhone out with the front facing camera on watching behind me recording it as I ran. Then my dream changed and I was talking to a guy that I knew when I was about 14-15 who was my "Internet boyfriend" at the time. It was current day and I called him to see how he was. He immediately told me he couldn't date me as he had a girlfriend. I told him my call had nothing to do with dating him or being with him just that last I hear e was going to visit and I never ears from him again. He told me he was pulled over and taken to the police station and they gave him a ticket and took him home. Once he was home his parole officer picked him up and took him to jail and he had been there many years. Then my dream changed again only this time I was at work. I said yay uncle sam's arm stayed but I never looked at him and I went to talk to the other manager on nights and his arm was on the desk. I said Damn his arm fell off and he said yeah. Someone said you should have made Michael Jordan and I said I thought about it but he's too tall and I didn't want to do anything that tall. Dream change again an I was watching a girl who was in a car driving to audition for something. She arrives auditions party's with them and goes to leave and says to them. "I paid ahead for this trip y'all better reimburse me for this." They told her they would and she stumble off the curb and I woke up.

Odd dream as hell and I hadn't talked to that guy since high school. The last part I have no clue about.
