Birthday pic's

While they are distracted I shall eat their popcorn


Doc is only doing this for the kids sake, can't cha tell?




And a pic of the cake we made, we were going to buy a
really awesome Football theme one but at the last minute
the girls asked if we could bake one... so... I baked it... sigh.

I would have done this earlier but the request for cat blogging (and Doc beating me to the deadline) got in the way. So without further ado, Doc blogging... tee hee hee

National Cat Day

National Cat Day

Phineas has control of the kids toys.
~The Kids are not aware of this yet but the CATS
are collecting ball's and hiding them in the Laundry room~

I should have posted this before midnight like Cosmic Cat did... but hey I have been busy! I hope to all that is holy that I can finish these costumes. I have to make Mollys skirt bigger, finish Lulu's, finish Doc's, and OH CUT MINE OUT AND SEW IT! YIKES. But, Doc paid all but 30 bucks of a new sewing machine for me today and the repair man comes tomorrow to fix the old NEW one. Fucker didn't work new out of the box... but sat here for two years so it is out of warranty. And to make it worse, it is a SINGER. Pllllbbth.

I am in physical pain from staying up late and hunching over these projects. It has been a long time sense I sat down and sewed to sew. LOL. Mending and hemming just don't count! I do miss sewing on a whole and I think that this winter I will get some patterns and make stuff. Handbags, hats... stuff like that. Maybe a few dresses for Lulu.

I will be getting my yarn and needles at Thanks Giving. So, there will be another fun winter thing. I miss working with yarn. Hope I can remember how!

Company coming in tomorrow so you might not hear from me for a few days. Happy blogging. Oh and LL... pbblbbth

Now we KNOW why Alvin is so much bigger than the other cats!

updates

"Fitness, if it came in a bottle, everybody would have a great body." Cher (1946- )

Posting again because Doc is referring to my facebook posts in order to read something.

Spent a few weeks being sick. Tired of being sick. On antibiotic. Feeling better. Still have a mild runny nose and a cough. Dealing with it. Grumpy about it. Not a good sick person.

I have tried to post a few pictures here and there. To keep a little update and maybe a small circulation of readers coming back.

I am working on making Halloween costumes. Yea, whoopie (really... whoopie? wanna?) LOL J/K. Lucy is going to be a Bee. I cussed a bit and cut out the 21 pieces of the pattern and pinned them to the fabric. Mandy wants to be Sponge-babe. Yes, babe. I know, I know, she is like 10... DON'T remind me because she gave me a headache with the boy crush crap earlier today. Ask Doc, I text him I had a knock over a horse headache! LOL. Sponge babe is basically the same as sponge bob only it is a human girl dressed like sponge bob in a skirt. The costume at the store was $60. So, I am making a skirt and piecing together the rest. I will let Doc to be the one to reveal what he and I are going to be. I have his ready to cut out. Mine is still in the package. LOL. If all else fails... I will go as MOM.... Pbbblbbth, take that!

We did go after school on Thursday to what the city folk call a pumpkin patch. For the price, we could have got the same things at the grocery store or Walmart. However, it was decorated nice and we did have fun.

Lucy telling Doc and the business owner something. Don't Doc look excited beyond all means?

Girls (couldn't get them both to look at same time) with the scarecrow. Seeing Mandy looked at the camera above I chose to to use the one here with Lucy looking at the camera.
Photobucket

I feel bad about the state of the house. I feel bad about the state of my car. I feel bad about the state of my emotions. LOL. Life has sucked for me the last month.

I have wrote the letter to my blog ten times quitting blogging because I am just ... not with it. And then I go and read your all's blogs and peek at the blogs on Doc's blog roll and realize, I love blogger and I am not leaving. LOL. The bold words when your sick and feeling sorry for yourself, right? And blog is not alone. I haven't been to facebook in two weeks except a few updates on the phone but really... just whining and complaining.

I have however decided that any blogging and page views will be limited to an hour a day and preferably after the munchkins have gone to bed. Hope this trend catches on to other ppl. LOL. Right.

I have been so sick. I don't even want to go there! I think if it were the Flu then everyone would have it. When I picked the girls up from Georgia I went to the doctor. $200 later I found out that by ignoring a sinus issue it got infected and by ignoring the building pressure.... they got impacted.... funny I had told Doc when I got back from Georgia he was making me an appointment with his dentist... the doctor also told me that the impacted sinus were most likely giving me Jaw pain. So, the doctor gave me a sinus medication, an antibiotic, and a muscle relaxer.

A week later... I am not coughing until I puke or piss my pants ... hey breakthru! HA HA. No pun intended!

I am hoping I feel good enough tomorrow to get out to the car and finish unpacking it from last weekend. It is a new car and I do not want it DIRTY and that is what it is right now. GRRRRR!

As far as the house goes, it needs a good cleaning. And I will get to that. Really I am lucky Doc has been so patient with me. I think he knows I have been pretty clean up until recently! LOL. I can't stand the state of the house. I have folded (well... sorta thanks to the cats) laundry in baskets in our rooms, and all over the couch. LOL. UGH. I have half done dishes and no counter space. The floors are clean. I did them yesterday and the day before. The toilets are clean. LOL. PRIORITIES. OK so Doc cleaned them... a week ago...

So between getting the house under control over the next few days I will be sewing these Halloween costumes. yea, I know, right? Trust me... There will be pictures. I guess I shouldn't say that too loud, Doc might refuse to go trick-or-treating with us!

I have also been fighting some depression. This is not an easy confession to make. I have not officially quit school but Lulu and her 'issue' has made it near impossible for me to go to school and if I do get to class then she makes it near impossible to focus and concentrate on my studies. 32 hours to go and I can't get there. The depression over this has not helped my mood or my security/insecurity issues.

Doc has been super supportive in this issue. When I wanted to start screaming and give up and send Lucy packing to Georgia he said "No, that won't solve anything" and as always he was right. He even suggested that I take off of school until Lucy at least starts kindergarten. I don't know about that but he is most likely right there too.

Did I mention I don't process stress well? Some of you know this about me. Some of you might have gathered this about me. It is true. So, on top of being sick, all of this other stuff has happened and I have just been a flat out meanie. I have been mean to Doc, I have been short with the kids, I have ignored the cats (as much as they will let me) but I have stuck to all the the things with getting the bird out of puberty. LOL. She is the only one that has not been at the end of my temper (on the verge but not ....). Anyway. I know I am being childish and I know I am being selfish, it just hurts so bad to have to say... 32 hours and I can get into a graduate program and realize my dream... oh wait... you can't do it... and then (the tears come) I have the mental battle ... your not the only one routing for yourself here... there are people you don't even know that offer you words of encouragement everytime you post something school related. Here and Facebook. I don't know what is worse... disappointing myself or you guys! And then... IF I can just get out of this semester alive.... or at least with a GPA, lol, then I can take the rest off until Lucy starts school. But in all honesty, I just don't foresee it going down like that.

I am very fortunate to have Doc. I don't know why he puts up with me. I broke down and started to cry the other morning. I kind of walked away when it started because you know... lol... I don't do stuff like that... but he knew.

Next week we have an appointment with Vanderbilt for the kids and we will begin the fall into what if anything can be done about the potential mental health issue with Lucy.

I know that none of these things are the end of the world. Even combined they are far from difficult to over come. It is the whole thing with school that really is causing a depression which is making the other things seem overwhelming and I know this. I am not stupid (though I do post like I am). This is life! Welcome to my world.

Don't give up on me, OK?

MADDOX PERRY KERSEY


At 11:51am Little Maddox passed into Heaven on October 16, 2009.

And I have a problem with a three month old baby dying. Yes I do. Welcome to my soapbox of guilt.

I don't blame myself for the Death of Maddox. But I do feel guilty for hearing about it. Here is why. A few months ago I had a falling out with Sue Anne Clark. She runs Rugratt Resort (where Maddox got hurt). Rugratt Resort is also the place where Lulu stayed while I went to East Georgia College.

When it came to my attention that Lucy was being allowed to sleep excessivly at her daycare I pulled Lucy from the daycare and asked Sue Anne to refund me around $500 because I had paid her the entire semester in advance. She refused and I took her to court. The judge ruled that he could not rule because he was related to Sue Anne by marriage and I could appeal. At this point I decided not to appeal (with the advise of Doc) because I was in the middle of the move and it would just be a pain in the neck to keep all the documents at hand... and well... I just let it go. But I did tell Sue Anne at the court house, "What comes around goes around, and one day you will get yours, I just hope I am around to hear about it." THAT is where the guilt comes in. I wish I didn't hear about "IT".

I got a text from my girlfriend Jen a week ago asking me to pray for Maddox and this picture of him in ICU. Vaguely I recognized the last name but was not sure from where. I said a prayer and well, forgot about it.

I am told what happened is story 1:
That Maddox was laid on a bed and he had apparently rolled off it and was put there by Sue Anne and when she came back she found him dead on the floor, they were able to resistate him and call 911. Wait, they do have cribbs, they do have floor mat's... why was he laid on the bed?

Story 2: Lynn laid him on the bed (and the same story).

Story 3 (by a close friend of the family) that Lynn laid him on the bed (same story) but Sue Anne was going to take the fall for it because Lynn has a new baby herself with Sue Anne's son and she is young and it was a mistake.

Story 4 - there was an investigation due to the brain-stem injury that was present in the baby and the parents were not pressing charges.


If story 3 is true I don't agree with it. I don't like Lynn much. She got fired from Rugratt's twice. First time was for striking another employee (while she was pregnant) and the second was for not showing up on a regular basis. When she was there she was very nice and very clean. Some of the kids liked her and some of them didn't. Lucy liked her. She was like Jessica and held Lucy all the time. Which was not a convince for me because at home that meant that Lucy wanted to be held all the time. I love my kids. At that time when I got home I had time to get the kids a bath, feed them (cook for them), be on hand to help Mandy with homework if needed, and read a bedtime story and bed. I did not have the time or the energy to hold Lucy and do all these tasks. I did yell at Lynn for holding Lulu all the time. She yelled back at me that she was so cute she couldn't resist. I told her to try to resist! Let her have her independence, besides your preg and it is not good for YOU to hold a 18 lb heifer all day! I yelled nicely then spoke to Sue Anne. I told her about what I just said here.

But I don't agree with Sue Anne taking the fall for Lynn because IF she was truly negligent with Maddox what is going to stop her from doing it to another child or her own?

My problem with story 1) - I have know the Clark's for almost two years. They have been in the baby business for close to 40 years. They have had problems, broken legs, broken arms (all playground related, yes I researched them), and a few minor cuts and bruises... BUT... no negligence. Which was why I had went with them and not one of the other dozen or so daycare's in Swainsboro. This was a Christian Day Care. I think if Mr. Billy was into child molestation... it would have come out LONG before 2008. I have never known them to lie any child on a bed. Now, Lucy and Ava did sleep on Sue Anne's bed when she down sized to the house from the big day care (when all of her damn kids moved in and ruined her life and yes I will defend her! She has a big heart, she moved them in and let her business go. Family first.) Now, with Lucy and Ava, they slept on the big bed, there were special mesh rails that were put up and a mountain of pillows on the floor. She would put them asleep on the floor and come in and they would both be on the bed. SO SHE TOOK Precautions. How is the saying, if you can't beat them, join them? Yea, OK.

Story 4 is the one that scares me. If this is actually SBS (Shaken Baby Syndrome) then where did it happen? Did Lynn do this? Did Sue Anne snap from all the pressure on her and do it? DID THIS HAPPEN AT HOME and the baby was laid on the bed and Lynn went to get Sue Anne and ask for help because there was something not right? I want to believe the later. Did the baby ever fall on the floor at all but maybe was dead when Sue Anne got in there and because she is a nurse she performed life saving maneuvers and saved his life? I don't have the entire story and like I said there are several versions of the story.

In my heart I want to believe that despite me being mad at Sue Anne over money that she would not allow something like this to happen in her care. She did after all take care of my child. In my heart I want to believe that Maddox will have justice.

In all three stories it is also said that Sue Anne was operating without a license from the state. The reasons for her loosing her license range from it was not renewed due to cost, she lost it due to over crowding, and that her husband molested a little girl in 2008. I would like to believe that it is one of the first two reasons.

I ask that you say a prayer for Maddox and for the truth. I pray that the right person is prosecuted for his death.

new pussy

The top picture is the boys together. Alvin decided to get in the box for a nap. I was getting Doc's lunch ready for work and saw Phineas creep into the box. Curious I looked in (expecting to find him pooing there or something!) and saw him carefully settling down with Alvin. Awwww! And Doc and I had just got done discussing we needed another box for the vet because no more than one would fit in the box! LOL. WRONG!

Meet the new family member, Phineas. He is a bi-colored (the bi is really light on his back like a saddle) rag doll kitten. I purchased him at a real good price from Michelle . She is down sizing due to the economy. Phineas is five months old, so he is a left over from another litter! At that sight if you go to the stud and queen page, his dad is Antonio and his mother is Anastasia.
