You wake up in a darkened circus tent, wearing a bright blue and yellow clown costume and a fluffy red wig. There is a dwarf standing over you with bucket of water. “You okay?” he asks. What’s going on?

You wake up chained to the wall of a medieval torture room. The torture devices are laid out on a table in front of you. What’s your plan?

I’m in the weird part of WOW right?  First I try to wiggle my hand out of the chains. (Being double jointed) one hand comes lose and I stretch towards a table of torture tools. Try as I might nothing will pry the chained cuff off of my wrist. As I hear thunderous foot steps and grunting approaching my Dungeon door I step back towards the wall. I hide my free hand behind my back with the sharpest of the nasty tools. As the monstrous ogre (who I can only assume has come to do away with me) enters my cell and  approaches  me, I stab him in the eyes with my stolen tool. As he wails  and grasp frantically at his now mutilated eye  sockets, I grab the keys from his belt. Unlocking my chained wrist I grab my bow and daggers and free my pet lion who is also caged with in my dungeon cell.  I use my stealth and my very hungry lion to make my way thru the Ogres village to safety…..and a very tall mug of Mead!!

That I was adopted







Just a Friday….

Today was petty uneventful. Same hodgepodge as any other day. I always look forward to the weekends despite the fact other than no school or work it is the same as any other day. Minus Monday. Mondays suck regardless of what I do.  I did have one incident today that might just lead me to become a kitten napper. A few houses down from me is a home where about a dozen kids live. Well at least I always see about a dozen outside running around.(Between ages 2-8)  As I was driving passed said house today I saw a small black kitten. This kitten was adorable and most likely less then  3 months old. She was all alone on the side walk just meowing away. I of course had to make sure she was ok. She seemed very happy to have me scratch her little ears. Well a little girl came pouncing out of the door of the house of many kids. She claimed the kitty was hers and proceeded to call it’s name and pick it up by it’s leg. I freaked and of course told her she should never pick an animal up like that. Her big ….BIG momma came to her porch at this time in which I decided it best to get into my car and leave.  Being that this little girl was about 7-8 I would expect she would know to never grab an animal like that. But these kids seem to be always unsupervised and running wild. NOT a place a small animal should be IMO.  Not to mention this house is owned by the housing authority.

Now don’t get me wrong. I have no issue with that. Their yard is kept neat and they are never any real trouble. But I do have an issue with the fact that in almost the same place a few months back I found an adult black cat with a clearly broken and sliced open paw.  It jumped into my lap as soon as I opened the door to my vehicle.( I swear it knew I was there to help)  It unfortunately took off as I was trying to get my toddler into the house before I had any time to help it 😦  Coincidence that I found it in the same place? I think not. And I wouldn’t be surprised if it was the momma to this little kitty.

There is probably more a law against me kidnapping a kitty then there is for some one hurting one /sigh. If it wasn’t for my allergies I could see me being an animal cop.    Of course in Baltimore I would still be risking getting shot. There is a terrible problem with dog fighting and drug dealers having large amounts of BIG vicious dogs. The have them as a show of power NOT as furbabies.

So sad.

Cats and stress

So I have decided to try having a cat. For most people with severe allergies and asthma this is a no-no. And I am no exception. I have a toy poodle because I am allergic to most other dogs.  I have been very fortunate to have little to no allergies to my doggie Dante. Unfortunately cat dander and cat allergies are much worse then dog allergies. All cats produce dander. Some higher then others. dark haired non-neutered males being the worst offenders.But my neighbor has a 3 month old Tabby cat that has to find a home. So I am going to try 2 days with the cat and see how everyone does. It’s not only me I am concerned about, but my children too. Neither have been exposed to cats at all. I figure I’ll try and then at least we will know for sure.

I would love so much to own a farm. To have a horse, some chickens , barn cats, and heck even a pig and some lambs. (Although I can see my husband trying to eat said lambs) I love being around animals. I find it peaceful. I have always been a nature type person. The first 11 years of my life I grew up in a country setting. And my grade school was in the middle a farm country.I would take hikes in the woods around my house all the time.  (Back when you could let your child out of your site and not worry)

In the city things just move too fast. And there is too much noise. Everything is dirty and dim.  I want neighbors who scrapbook, and do crafts.Everyone would have gardens and let there kids dig in the dirt till they have neck-taters growing. Maybe someday before I am too old to enjoy it…

We still can’t move thanks to this messed up economy. Sure I can afford a very nice house, I just have no way of selling the one I own now with out taking a 60,000$ loss. I try to lessen the stress of it by considering how well Julia is doing in her private school. She has ADD and with that comes it’s own learning problems. With a small class she is able to get the attention and less frustration that she needs. And it is nice to be able to talk to her teachers every day after school. I really think a more open dialog with teachers (Not just notes home and such) really changes how well your child does.

I have been doing some major fall cleaning. (I would liken it to the nesting one gets right before giving birth) I think it is because I am depressed.  I have noticed myself being short tempered lately. And depression turned inwards causes anger among other things. With Brittany graduating, Matt dying, my fathers health being not the greatest,(I am a daddies girl, best man ever in my life) and all the home repairs we are currently undertaking , I think I am avoiding emotions a little to much. And lord knows I am the master of avoidance!

Which is also why I need to get off of here and actually do some work.
