Ahh too busy to blog!

A lot of newness and old. I guess I'll just post ramblings from my head.
I got a promotion. So I am really tired . I miss having two days off in a week.
My birthday is Sunday and for the first time in my life I am not excited.
I cry at least 3 times a day for no reason.
I give up on a baby. Some people just aren't blessed. I am tired of getting excited only to be super depressed later. So I have stopped getting excited.
I have had alcohol 3 times this week in small quantities. I didn't get sick or turn yellow. Yay Liver!
My mom makes the best food in the world.
I just realized that most of the people that I thought were friends were just acquaintances. Even the best of friends out grow each other.
Why can my Ex and his ok with messing around with engaged men harlot have a baby and I cannot? I think I must of ran over some very important 'possums.
If it can go wrong it will.
I hate my car.
I don't really want to get married anymore but I am so far entangled I can't really say no.
I think my dad is coming home from Iraq. I say I think because I am not important enough to tell these things. I am only his oldest child and his only daughter. Asshole.
I had cookies for dinner last night.
Sometimes I have panic attacks at work and have to hide in the freezer because it takes my breath and makes me stop crying. Plus the freeziness keeps my face from turning red.
My friend would have been 21 5 days ago. I miss him. He always had the best insults.I regret not getting to tell him bye.
My ex keeps trying to get me to help him cheat on his wife. I am engaged and not a hooker so I declined.
My eyes are getting worse so I can barely read the screen.Thanks stupid glasses that broke.
My tags expire in 2 days and my new car won't crank.
One of my best friends hates me because I got the job he was suppose to get.
I just realized that I have nothing really to show for my life.
I wish mom would make me some Stroope waffles.
I read the divorces first in the Sunday paper because it's the best part.
Is it wrong to want to go away for a few days...alone?
I complained about the music in the kitchen today only to realize I liked the song they were blarring.
I stole a rooster that was in the middle of the road and gave him to my mom.
Ahh too much nothing lol
Peace and Captain Crunch!

Top Ten Thursday!

This weeks Top Ten 
Thing that make me happy!
1. Bright colors. 
I love teals and pinks and greens. They make my heart smile.
2. When my house is clean.
 Disorganization leads to depression and stubbed toes. Wolf cleaned the house so now it smells like pine sol and not old gym socks!
3. Candles.
I love candles that smell fruity or like cinnamon rolls. They are very calming.
4. Babies!
Last week there was a lady wit ha little boy that was maybe about 4 months old. He was screaming and she was trying to pay at the shoe store. I asked her if I could hold him cause im squishy and babies dig it. Within minutes he was fine. That made me happy.
5. Girls night out.
Once a week I go out with my Mom and my aunt and we eat Mexican food and gossip. It's nice to get out.
6. Books
I am one of the geekiest people on Earth. I love to read. I love the smell of a new book. 
7. Duct Tape.
There is no better feeling than sitting for an hour and taking pieces of tape and turning them into things that people want to buy.
8. Tallen and Ross
They are two of the cutest kids on this planet. They are very smart and always say what they are thinking. If I want to know if something is too tight all I have to do is be in a room with Tallen for 3 minutes and he will be sure to tell me.
9. My MP3 Player.
 I have had it a few years but it is loaded with my favorite songs and when I need to escape for a minute it is the best vacation.
10. Chocolate.
 There is no bad day that chocolate can not fix. I love it.

Maybe Monday

Life is full of maybe and might.
Maybe I am too nice.
Maybe I am a bad driver
Maybe I do have little bit of road rage but seriously, if you are driving 30 in a 55 while on the wrong side of the road of course I am going to honk and call you and idiot.
Maybe I shouldn't have took the management position. I miss being nothing and getting to go home while it's still the day I went in on.
Maybe I am going to sign up for college classes.
Maybe I'm scared to get married.
there's no maybe there actually. I am scared.
Maybe I'll go tan this week.
Maybe I am secretly glad that people are always asking me to do stuff.
Maybe I just want a nap. 
Maybe I'll cut my hair and get one of those weird choppy messy cuts. I like those.
Maybe I really missed the other shift leader this week. He laughs at my jokes :D
Maybe I am angry that the trash my ex was messing around with is now pregnant.

Tribute Tuesday!

Tuesday's Tribute

This week's tribute is to :
People who put allergy warnings on their packaging and menus. Thanks!
Earlier today I went with my fiance to our local Thai restaurant.
I ordered the Sesame Chicken like I usually do in Chinese restaurants. It came with a salad with peanut dressing. I am not allergic to peanuts so I was sure it was safe because it said nothing about Almonds. I was wrong. Apparently, somewhere 3 bites into a piece of chicken I hit almond. Within minutes my tongue was all swelly and I was kinda choking. Wolf and I left quickly and went to buy some Benedryl. Within the hour I was ok. I wish people would take in to consideration the fact that all people can't eat things like that and at least mention them in the description.
Anyhow, Thank you person who thinks to label things!

Sacrifice Sunday...

I am going to try to give up something for one day every Sunday.
This week's Sacrifice
( Drum Roll Please...)
Mountain Dew!
A few months ago a girl stayed with me and all she drank was Mt. Dew. It was there and I was there and one thing lead to another and the next thing I knew I was an addict. It's citrusy goodness *sigh*
But I have went all day with out any.

Shame on Me Saturday!

This weeks horrible thing I did...
Once when I was in High School I had two guy friends that decided to skip school the day the list of people that would have to take exams was announced. They were so sure that they had passed with flying colors that they didn't even bother finding out if they would have to take the exams. Well that evening on the bus ride home one of the guys' sister was sitting beside me and we were talking about their slackness. We decided that we would tell them that they had to take an exam which meant that they would have to go to school the next day. 
When she got home she told them about the exam and said " If you don't believe me call Renni!" Which they did,  and I backed up her story 100%. The next morning they went all the way to school only to find out they could have stayed home. I think they ended up hanging out with our bus driver all day. They were so mad!

Top Ten Thursday

Ok I am a little odd..paranoid...ocd sometimes.
Here are my top ten weirdness's.
1. I am afraid of aliens.
When I was younger I had dreams where aliens would kid nap my sister. I hid a clothes hanger with a sharpened pencil on the end of it under my bed so that I could poke out one of their creepy giant eyes. I still think they are after me. *Shivers*
2. I count money like 400 times.
I am always paranoid about being short on my money at work. Therefore I count it like 4 times before I give people change. I hate new bills!
3. Germs freak me out.
I think Mom did this one to me. When I was younger we weren't allowed to eat any kind of batter because we would get Salmonella and die. Yup that's what she told me. I have to wash my hands every time I touch eggs or pork immediately. Like there is some sort of second time limit on how long it take the little boogers to get ya. I am also freaked out by public restrooms and especially their door handles. People just don't wash their hands enough. Money also freaks me out. How many strippers have had that dollar in their pants?
4.I am super afraid of heights.
Wolf was going to be sweet and take me up to this Mountain State Park near here. I figured I would be ok as long as I didn't look off at one of those fenced in viewing areas. I was wrong. We got half way up and freaked the F---- out. Seriously. I had a full blown panic attack and hand crouch in my seat and close my eyes until we reached the bottom.
5. Somethings have to be done or the world will stop.
In my head if I don't tell someone that I love them when they are leaving or ending a phone call they are going to die. I know this is crazy but it's true. I have to tell people I love them before  I leave their presence or bad things will happen.
6. I am afraid the house will burn down.
I can not leave something plugged in that may cause a fire. Coffee pots, lamps, bathroom lights. I just know as soon as I leave it on and fall asleep the house is going to burn down.
7. I don't trust my self.
Every night when I get home the whole time I am falling asleep I am convincing my self that I have left something on or plugged up. I am also never convinced that the door is locked. I will check 10 times before I am sure. I am the same way at work the guys are normally ready to kill me before the night is out but hey it's their lives we are talking about.
8. I cuss like a sailor.
I don't know when it happend but one day I woke up and I had a potty mouth.  I was very bitter for a while and I think it moved in then. At any rate the fact that I am friends with mainly 20-30 year old  guys doesn't help things. At this point they say I am one of them...with long hair.
9. Crowds freak me out.
If I am in a building and I cannot view the exit I freak out. I used to work for a retail store that rhymes with Sal-Mart. I worked every holiday but Easter that year was horrible. One night I was standing there and people were everywhere. You could barely move let alone see the doors. I thought I was having a heart attack. ( I know I am young but stranger things have happend see # 10) Turns out I was suffering from a panic attack. I freak out when it's like that so I avoid crowds if at all possible.
10 I stole an old lady's body.
Good health is rare in my family. 2 months after I turned 18 I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis . My joints sound like rice crispies.I kinda limp like Egor also but that just makes me hot :D

Was My Face Red Wednesday!

Was My Face Red! Wednesday

                   I once dated a guy who shall remain nameless. Anyway, this guy was from the same area that I am and we were talking about people that we both knew. Well while we were sitting in a parking lot at a gas station I said "There is that hooker woman." He looked at me  and asked "What do you mean" I said "You know she's like a super swinger. Her and her husband have been hooking up with some of the migrant workers out the road." I guess he really didn't know. About that time  the lady walks over and starts talking to the guy.  A few minutes later he looks at me and says  "Oh! Renni have you met my aunt?" I could have died right there! Apparently, everyone but him knew about the swingerness but my date.

Tribute Tuesday

Tuesday's Tribute

This week's Tribute is to Odeffa.
She is my Mom's older sister and my aunt.
She wears the same size clothes as me so she is always sharing with me.
She taught me how to skip and sing "You are my sunshine"
She is just as clumsy as I am.
She reads as much as I do,  so for as long I as I've been reading  she will read something awesome and send it my way because we like the same kinda books. None of that mushy gushy romance crap here. Please pass the murder mystery and smart assery.
She's left handed and did I mention clumsy? So she isn't allowed to have knives. Neither am I due to safety reasons.
Where she is a left she always gets to sit on the outside when we go out.
She has tiny feet and always ends up buying too big shoes which rocks because that's how I got my new converses.
Tallen and Ross think she is Elvis. 
She always has the best snacks. Her house is where I fell in love with Ben and Jerry.
She has a not so known temper. I am waiting on her to snap and break bad.
We are both like 5 foot tall.
She looks a lot like my mom.
Anyway, she is my favorite.

ok i'm slack this week..sue me!

Go Figure Friday
Men are so stupid sometimes!
Recently, we hired a guy to wait tables. He is awesome. Amazing. The best worker I have on waitstaff. He is also Gay. His partner is one of the best looking men I have ever laid eyes on. They are both just as nice as they can be. New Guy is really funny and we joke around alot and he gets along with all of the girls. The problem is the guys are homophobic. They aren't mean to him but they don't include him in joking around or smoke breaks or other things they do together and it pisses me off. I snapped the other night and informed them that they are all really vain and stupid to think that he would want them. His partner is a super hottie and well they aren't. They've lightened up a little bit but it still pisses me off that it was an issue.
I miss J!
My friend J moved to Oregon about a year ago and I really miss her. She was recently diagnosed with cancer and it breaks my heart that she's out there without friends to support her. we used to go to the gym and then to the Waffle house lol.
My Dad is an Ass
Father's day is coming up and I'm not getting him jack. He is one of the most greedy, self centered people I have ever met. Sometimes I miss him but he never calls, emails or anything unless it's about my brother. he doesn't even know I'm getting married. I guess he's just the anti-me. Plus he hates Mom, so all he does is run her down. It gets old.
I'm lazy this week.
I worked some crazy shifts this week and I was tired so I didn't get hardly any of my day of the week stuff done.

Almost A Year.

A year ago at this time I was in a bad relationship with a cheating liar. I had lost my job and had no money or anything to even try to support myself and I was scared. He yelled alot. He would only" allow" me 5 dollars in gas a day (gas was like 4 dollars a gallon then)which was barely enough to get me to my mom's which was one of the only places I was allowed to go. He broke doors, threw things and once held me down and poked me with a loaded gun. If I was upset he would throw water in my face to "calm me down" If I had not lost my job I would have never known he was cheating. She put up pictures of them together on myspace and I was devastated. Mom called me at 12:00 am and told me to get out of the house. When I got to her house she showed me the pictures and I literally threw up. At the time I had been trying to make purses to sell to make money and he had laughed and told me I was just wasting money.
I was so scared of being alone and I still loved him but you can only take so much. I had been staying very sleepy. I was to the point where at 5 pm I couldn't hold my eyes open. My neighbor felt sorry for me because I looked so rough and was having a hard time dealing with the cheating and the lies so she took me to eat Chinese.
While we were out, we saw him parked at his Ex's house and did our own surveillance. After realizing it was midnight and he was in there with the lights out, we went back to my house and started packing his things. In his things we found a bottle of cough syrup which was grape flavored. For two weeks I had been tasting something grapey and when I opened the cough syrup it was the same thing. I then open a bottle of pop to get a drink when I realized that it smelled grapey! The man had been drugging me to make me sleepy. In the weeks before I had been having killer headaches and he would make me take "Tylenol" because he was concerned. They looked weird but he would get angry if I didn't take them. After describing them to my cop friend he informed me that he had been giving me a common nerve medication which also makes you sleepy.
I packed all of his things and left him a note to get out of my house and go back where he'd just left from. I spent the night at Bambi's. He was a large man and she didn't want me to be alone with him when he came in. He came in about 4 a.m. and angrily loaded his things and left. I didn't know how I was going to make it. The lights were in his name and rent was due. That was the 4th of July. It truly was Independence Day.
The 5th I got my rebate check. It was just enough to pay my rent and have my lights switched. Within 2 weeks I had a job at the place where I currently work. I had applied online and to this day I am the only person i know of that they have hired from an online application. If he had still been there he would have spent my money. It all worked out for the best.
I lived on my own up until 2 months ago. I don't know how I made it but God looked after me. I have sold at least 10 duct tape purses and I don't know how many roses and wallets from my "waste of money" Yes it was hard. Yes I was devastated. You can't stay in an abusive relationship because he tells you that you won't make it. You have to have faith and a great support system. If I didn't have my family and friend's I would have went crazy.
Wolf and I have been friends for years. He had always like me but was afraid to ask me out. On the 18th of July it will be the anniversary of our first date. He loves me. He is good to me and has never and will never treat me like the other guy did.

Someone should River Dance on her Face!

Ok. Sometimes I am a pretty calm person. Reading this really pisses me off!

Please go here and help to make sure that this creature never gets to traumatize more children. People trust teachers to help their children grow up safe and sound without being humiliated in front of everyone. Aren't teachers suppose to protect kids from these things ? If she were Tallen's teacher..OMG...she would have more to worry about than being suspended.

Please sign this petition!

The Highwayman

This is one of my favorite poems. I had nothing to share today but this.
The Highwayman

  The wind was a torrent of darkness upon the gusty trees, 
The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas, 
The road was a ribbon of moonlight looping the purple moor, 
And the highwayman came riding-- 
The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn door. 

He'd a French cocked hat on his forehead, and a bunch of lace at his chin; 
He'd a coat of the claret velvet, and breeches of fine doe-skin. 
They fitted with never a wrinkle; his boots were up to his thigh! 
And he rode with a jeweled twinkle-- 
His rapier hilt a-twinkle-- 
His pistol butts a-twinkle, under the jeweled sky. 

Over the cobbles he clattered and clashed in the dark inn-yard, 
He tapped with his whip on the shutters, but all was locked and barred, 
He whistled a tune to the window, and who should be waiting there 
But the landlord's black-eyed daughter-- 
Bess, the landlord's daughter-- 
Plaiting a dark red love-knot into her long black hair. 

Dark in the dark old inn-yard a stable-wicket creaked 
Where Tim, the ostler listened--his face was white and peaked-- 
His eyes were hollows of madness, his hair like mouldy hay, 
But he loved the landlord's daughter-- 
The landlord's black-eyed daughter; 
Dumb as a dog he listened, and he heard the robber say: 

"One kiss, my bonny sweetheart; I'm after a prize tonight, 
But I shall be back with the yellow gold before the morning light. 
Yet if they press me sharply, and harry me through the day, 
Then look for me by moonlight, 
Watch for me by moonlight, 
I'll come to thee by moonlight, though hell should bar the way." 

He stood upright in the stirrups; he scarce could reach her hand, 
But she loosened her hair in the casement! His face burnt like a brand 
As the sweet black waves of perfume came tumbling o'er his breast, 
Then he kissed its waves in the moonlight 
(O sweet black waves in the moonlight!), 
And he tugged at his reins in the moonlight, and galloped away to the west. 

He did not come in the dawning; he did not come at noon. 
And out of the tawny sunset, before the rise of the moon, 
When the road was a gypsy's ribbon over the purple moor, 
The redcoat troops came marching-- 
King George's men came marching, up to the old inn-door. 

They said no word to the landlord; they drank his ale instead, 
But they gagged his daughter and bound her to the foot of her narrow bed. 
Two of them knelt at her casement, with muskets by their side; 
There was Death at every window, 
And Hell at one dark window, 
For Bess could see, through her casement, the road that he would ride. 

They had bound her up at attention, with many a sniggering jest! 
They had tied a rifle beside her, with the barrel beneath her breast! 
"Now keep good watch!" and they kissed her. She heard the dead man say, 
"Look for me by moonlight, 
Watch for me by moonlight, 
I'll come to thee by moonlight, though Hell should bar the way." 

She twisted her hands behind her, but all the knots held good! 
She writhed her hands till her fingers were wet with sweat or blood! 
They stretched and strained in the darkness, and the hours crawled by like years, 
Till, on the stroke of midnight, 
Cold on the stroke of midnight, 
The tip of one finger touched it! The trigger at least was hers! 

The tip of one finger touched it, she strove no more for the rest; 
Up, she stood up at attention, with the barrel beneath her breast. 
She would not risk their hearing, she would not strive again, 
For the road lay bare in the moonlight, 
Blank and bare in the moonlight, 
And the blood in her veins, in the moonlight, throbbed to her love's refrain. 

Tlot tlot, tlot tlot! Had they heard it? The horse-hooves, ringing clear; 
Tlot tlot, tlot tlot, in the distance! Were they deaf that they did not hear? 
Down the ribbon of moonlight, over the brow of the hill, 
The highwayman came riding-- 
The redcoats looked to their priming! She stood up straight and still. 

Tlot tlot, in the frosty silence! Tlot tlot, in the echoing night! 
Nearer he came and nearer! Her face was like a light! 
Her eyes grew wide for a moment, she drew one last deep breath, 
Then her finger moved in the moonlight-- 
Her musket shattered the moonlight-- 
Shattered her breast in the moonlight and warned him--with her death. 

He turned, he spurred to the West; he did not know who stood 
Bowed, with her head o'er the casement, drenched in her own red blood! 
Not till the dawn did he hear it, and his face grew grey to hear 
How Bess, the landlord's daughter, 
The landlord's black-eyed daughter, 
Had watched for her love in the moonlight, and died in the darkness there. 

Back, he spurred like a madman, shrieking a curse to the sky, 
With the white road smoking behind him and his rapier brandished high! 
Blood-red were his spurs in the golden noon, wine-red was his velvet coat 
When they shot him down in the highway, 
Down like a dog in the highway, 
And he lay in his blood in the highway, with the bunch of lace at his throat. 

And still on a winter's night, they say, when the wind is in the trees, 
When the moon is a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas, 
When the road is a gypsy's ribbon looping the purple moor, 
The highwayman comes riding-- 
The highwayman comes riding, up to the old inn-door. 

Over the cobbles he clatters and clangs in the dark inn-yard, 
He taps with his whip on the shutters, but all is locked and barred, 
He whistles a tune to the window, and who should be waiting there 
But the landlord's black-eyed daughter-- 
Bess, the landlord's daughter-- 
Plaiting a dark red love-knot into her long black hair.

Go Figure Friday...

Even a two year old can be bribed.
My Godson is almost 3 and still drinks from a bottle. It is messing up his teeth plus he just looks silly. The thing he wants most in the world is a Spider man bike. His mother agreed to pay half of it as long as he came up with $15 dollars of it. After spending a few hours with him the other  day I told him that bottles were for babies and if he would throw his away I'd give him the rest of his half of the bike. This worked so now he is on his way to his new big boy bike and his baby sister is now drinking from a cup. 
I had a nightmare about my co-worker.
I dreamed that a guy I work with was blind and I was taking a bath and he barged in and kissed me while having dip in his mouth. I threw up in my dream and woke up sick.
Where is the baby 'possum?
I am a known sleep walker. A few weeks back I was out in my yard at like 3 am in my night gown yelling for my brother. I woke up freezing with mud on my feet. I had also left the front door open. According to Wolf, I have been waking up nightly looking for a baby 'possum.  He tells me that he doesn't know where it is and I go back to bed. I have also been eating Oreos in my sleep. I woke myself up last week chewing on a Oreo in the middle of my kitchen at like 3 am. This has got to stop. I have noticed the more stressed I am the more often this happens.
My phone dials it's self.
I have been friends with Alan for years. We would never work as a couple which has been proven time and time again. He is very jealous of Wolf and a few weeks ago we argued over the fact that he was acting like an ass. I am marrying Wolf in September he can get over it. Anyway while we were arguing he said that he never ever ever wanted to talk to me again and for me to lose his number. My feelings were hurt but I didn't call mainly because I so mad at the way he had acted. Well, the other night I couldn't sleep. Everyone everywhere was asleep and I got up for a few minutes and walked around the house. When I got back to bed I heard the phone beeping and I was sure that it must be going dead so I picked it up to put it back on the charger. It had went through the memory and landed on Alan's number which is like 6th on my call list. It creeped me out so I hung it up and went to sleep. The next night I called him to check on him because usually when things like that happen something is wrong with the person. He was fine and had apparently sent me an email to say he was sorry.

Was My Face Red Wednesday!

Was My Face Red! Wednesday

A few years back I was working retail and had two friends who were both short and blond with glasses. I will call them Amber  and Bee. Well one day Amber told me that she was pregnant. She was excited and I was excited for her. Everyday we talked about the baby names and room themes and such. Well, Amber wasn't showing and only a few people even knew she was pregnant. I was all the time getting her mixed up with Bee. They really did look a lot alike and it would only take me a second to realize which one I was talking to. One, day Bee walked up and without thinking I was like " How's the baby?" To this Bee replied "What BABY?" OOps :( In my defense they looked a lot like. To this day I can't look at Bee without thinking she thought that I was saying she was fat.

Tribute Tuesday!

Tuesday's Tribute

This week's tribute is to my Mom.
She is always there to tell me my clothes don't match or to braid my hair when I can't reach it and it's all frizzy. She has ran off my loser ex-  boyfriends when they tried to show up and intimidate me. She has bought super glue and ice cream when my heart was shattered.She taught me to read and write. She gave me the love of a great novel or old mushy movie. She taught my sisters and me to sing in harmony while cooking. We are very Brady LOL. She taught me not to judge people based on religion, race or sexual orientation. We have never been rich but she taught me to put more stock in people than in things. She has supported me in my business ventures from Avon to Duct Tape she has always tried to help me make the most of things. I inherited her eyes and her temper lol. 
I would put a picture of her but she'd kill me!
Happy Tuesday!

Wolf isn't Above Robbing Children
We went by Lorra's on our way to town and noticed that her daughter and her friend were having a yard sale. They were excited to see us because we were the first and only people to stop all day. While I was rummaging through clothes and books Wolf was looking at dvd's. The girls had them marked at $3 each and he asked them if they would take $10 for the whole mess of them. The girls were excited at the offer so they took it. We ended up with:
17 Dvd's

We stopped by the flea market and they were closing up which is apparently the best time to go by. Everyone is hot, tired and not wanting to pack all the stuff up so they are willing to make a deal.

Why Fiancee Has No Hair...

Yesterday we were in the car and I looked at Wolf and I was like "You need a haircut"

Him: "I don't want a haircut"
Me: "But you REALLY need a haircut!"
Him: "It's not that hot. I am never cutting my hair again"
Me: "Please?"
Him: "Haircuts are too expensive"
Me: "I'll Pay for it :) "
Him: "I don't want you to pay for it. I'm Just not getting one"
Me "You look like a duck is sitting on your head and his butt is hanging out of the back of your hat. Please just get a haircut!"
Him: " No"

So we get home and he stomps through the house and gets out these 400 year old flea market find hair clippers. I went over the whole I'll pay for you to get a hair cut thing again and he declined. I walked through the house to get something I needed to get ready for work and when I came back to the bathroom he's standing at the mirror hacking away. Something happened and the guard didn't work so he had this semi-bald spot on the front of his hair. He keeps hacking until he has half of his head shaved and then his "perfectly fine " clippers died. At this point I'm kind of hiding because it is MY fault that he decided to use the P.o.S clippers. I asked him why he didn't borrow our neighbors clippers and he asked me why didn't I borrow our neighbors clippers. So I walked to Bambi's and begged her to let me use her clippers and not to laugh at Wolf when she seen him.

Long story short he finished shaving his head and is still bitter about the whole thing. Plus, he's kinda bald now. I just wanted him to spend 8 bucks and go to the barber.

Go Figure Friday

Things that made me go hrm..this week

I shall name him Sam

Everywhere I went yesterday there were turtles in the road. Apparently, It was national turtle in the road day and I didn't get the memo. I picked one of them up and took it Mom's because I thought Tallen might get a kick outta seeing a turtle. 

Mom decided that we should wait to tell him about it until we were sure it was not a snapping turtle so, I placed him back in my handy dandy shoe box and set him on top of a cabinet where he would be out of sight and harms way.

A few hours later Tallen rushed into the living room to tell me that there was something scary upstairs. Mom went to investigate and found the turtle trying to escape. So we had to show it to Tallen so that he wouldn't think it was a monster. He was so first. He decided that he was going to name him before my sisters got home. So he was therefore dubbed Sam.  Tallen ooohed and awwed for awhile then he looked at me and told me to get the little creep away from him.

Needless to say Sam was later released back into the wild due to hippie protest from Cina and Tallen being creeped out by him.

I bought a back bone on ebay!

I have been a manager for almost 2 months now. I have tried being nice and that just isn't working so I snapped this week. Every time I have sent guys into the men's room to make sure it was clean they would walk in and turn around only to come out seconds later announcing that it was clean. At closing I would walk back there only to find it a horrible mess and have to clean it myself. This week I about made them faint because after they "cleaned" it I had another male employee walk back and make sure that there were no men in there and guard the door so I could make sure it was clean. Alas, I am no longer having to last minute clean the mens room!

Back to the tape sweat shop!

After a few months of not being crafty I am now working on roses again. If they weren't for a friend I probably wouldn't but I am a sucker for friends.

I need a wedding planner...But I can't afford one..

I am getting married in September and I have nothing planned. My Mom is going to make my dress. I think we are having an outside wedding. I am not a very religious person and I just think it would be hypocritical to do the whole church wedding thing. I have like 4 billion people that want to come to my wedding. I am afraid I might end up on My Big Red Neck Wedding...

Top Ten Thursday

Top Ten Songs That I am Kinda Embarressed to Know..

1. Barbie Girl -Aqua

Even I was shocked to walk around the corner to find my thirty something male co-worker singing this one.

2.MMMbop- Hanson

Ok I admit it, I once was a Hanson freak. I am grown now and I only listen to them when I am alone in a car....

3 I kissed a Girl- Katy Perry

This song sneaks in your brain and gets stuck there. 

4 Anything from a Disney movie or kids show.

It happens one minute you are watching the Lion King , then BAM there ya are singing about being a mighty king...

5 Baby One More Time - Britney Spears

For those of you who might laugh at this choice do you remember wearing pig tails and trying to dance like that floozy? I do..

6.I Touch Myself -The Divynls

You might not  put this one on your Ipod but I'm sure if it were to come on you would know it word for word..

7.Rico Suave-Gerardo


8.Ice Ice Baby- Vanilla Ice

"All right stop collaborate and listen 
Ice is back with my brand new invention"

It was 1992ish I was in kindergarten and I was in LOVE with Vanilla Ice. My mom's MIL gave me this awesome sweater with a giant picture of Vanilla Ice on the front. I miss that sweater...the music not so much.

9. I'm Too Sexy- Right Said Fred
I admit it I am NOT too sexy for my shirt... or any other item of clothing for that matter..

10.U Can't Touch This- MC Hammer

Was my Face Red!

Was My Face Red! Wednesday

In my family I am kind of known as a ditz. Most people end family cook outs with "Remember when Renni said this or remember when Renni did that" So have dug out the box of things I would rather not remember to bring you this great story :)

I am terrified of heights. Every now and then I convince myself that I will be OK being up high and do something stupid like climb a tree or a ladder only to have a panic attack and need assistance getting down. A few years ago my Aunt Lorra had just moved into her new house. I went over while they were moving in and her daughter was showing me around. While we were standing in her hallway I looked up and noticed a string handing from the ceiling. I asked Lorra what it was and she told me that it went to the ladder that lead up to the attic. Well, me forgetting the whole part about attics being high up, let her daughter talk me into going up to explore it. I climbed all the way to the top and I was fine, until I looked down. Her fiance ended up having to help me down while my aunt and my cousins stood there laughing. I was only like six feet up but it looked like six miles...

Tribute Tuesday - Tallen

Tuesday's Tribute

This week's Tribute is to my brother Tallen.
He is 5 years old and has Asperger's Syndrome.
He is the funniest, smartest, craziest little guy I have ever met.
I usually end up at Mom's once a day for a few hours (Mainly to sneak a nap on her super squishy bed)
Everyday no matter what Tallen greets me at the door. Sometimes he locks me out, occasionally he is still mad at me for leaving the day before, but within minutes he usually reminds me that I have on Mama's shoes or my fiance's shirt.
He is brutally honest. If your shirt is too tight or your skirt is too short he will be sure to let you know.
Usually an hour or so into the visit he disappears into his own little world. Googling China or shopping on Amazon. But when I go to to leave he always makes sure to give me a hug and a kiss,a nosey nosey, a butterfly kiss and our latest addition (Which makes me cooler than Cina who does the same routine) is a high five.
When he was a little baby and couldn't sleep Mom and I would take turns walking him around the kitchen while listening to R.E.M. He would be quiet until it got to the part where he would sing "Yeah , Yeah, Yeah"
When he was Twoish Mom wanted him to watch educational programing but we would sneak late at night and eat ice cream and watch SpongeBob.
And that is why I picked Tallen this week...He Rocks!

The Strangest Things I have Ever Seen Through a Drive Thru Window

For those of you that know me you know that I am a manager at a popular chain pizza place. Sometimes I see the weirdest stuff...

1. There was once a lady that dropped her change because she was eating a chicken leg.  She then looked annoyed at me because I had to hand her pizza to her....

2. There was an old man with a toddler in his car. The little boy was running all over the car. He was not buckled in and the man was OK with this. Beside the man was a 12 pack of beer buckled in the middle of the seat...

3 There is a lady with a 400 year old hairless dachshund that only has one eye. I swear the thing was shipped in straight from hell. The entire time she is there the little monster growls at you and tries to attack you. I hate that dog.

4. Most pregnant women try to quit smoking or caffeine while pregnant. A few weeks ago it was late and my last customer pulled up to pick up her pizza. When she rolled down her window I noticed that she was like 8 months pregnant. She was covered in tattoos and piercings which is fine except for the fact that the marijuana smoke was so thick it took my breath....

5.  We have a lady that drives with her foot. She has two perfectly good hands but she is always driving with her foot.

6.Our company policy requires us to check ID with all debit or credit cards that do not have pictures on them. I once had a man cuss me for 15 minutes then drive off because I asked to see his ID.

7 I also had a man come in with a credit card that had a picture of a woman on it. He was a Hispanic man and the woman was an older white lady. When I asked to see his ID with the card he took sped off.

8. There is a man that orders his food then tries to teach you how the aliens talk....

I know this crazy stuff but it's true...

I feel like someone is trying to take out my uterus with a claw machine

The week before halloween I started normal period rihgt? WRONG!!! I am still bleeding. Why would you rant about this you must be thinking but I will tell you why.I have been seen by 4 different doctors and nothing. I am in so much freaking pain it is unreal. Every docotor I see has some smart ass nurse that looks at my chart then looks at me and feels the need to tell me that I will probably have to have a hysterectomy. Well thats just what every 21 year old girl needs to hear. Lately, I have become obsessed with babies not that im getting preggers considering the extreme amounts of birth control I am on currently. At least once a week I have a nervous breakdown in my bath tub and ask God why he is punishing me. I have yet to get his answer. Life might be easier but I have no insurance therefore any doctor that might actually help me won't see me because im poor. Bambi has been there with me through all of this taking me to doctors and steering me away from baby clothes in stores. I swear everyone I know is pregnant! everyday someone new tells me about their upcoming baby. I hate being bitter about it I want to be happy for people but it is getting so hard.I just wish I had answers and they could make the pain stop.I realy don't understand it I come from big families both of my grandma's had like 8 kids and mom has 5. So explain to me what happend here.I have wolf and he's great about it. I told him yesterday if he needs to find someone that can have his children to go for it that I understand. He said he just wants me. I just wish that there were more answers.

My mother the party blocker

My mother gets great coupons on random things. She just won a Velveeta party which comes complete with the cheese and chips and kool aid. I asked her to save these things for our Obama Party is she NO cause that's just how she is. The possibility of queso dip are just too much for her. So I guess we won't have any cheesy dip at the Obama party. I hope she's happy!

After a week of forced dieting (Bambi has lost her mind) I have snapped but dang are pastries good!!! It's those dang Krispy Kreme mini commercials!

My car was High Jacked (Literally!) by my 80 year old Papa

The other day I went to town with my friend. Normal enough right? I was devestated to find out that while I was gone my Papa and another neighbor decided to "fix" my car. It isn't broken, why does it need fixin'? It was dark when we got home so all I really noticed was that my car had been moved. I was just about to fall asleep when the phone rang and it was my neighbor informing me that I might need to use his car the next day for work. When I asked why he says" Well uh have you looked outside lately?' to which I responded "No..." and that's when he tells me that my steering was "loose" and they fixed it but my car was kinda sorta jacked up and on blocks. The last car Papa "fixed" ended up catching fire and burning to the ground. To my surprise (and relief!) my car was unharmed but I believe from now on if I leave I'll make sure to hide the spare keys!!!

Ahh the joys of trailer dwelling!
