I was helping my son with his homework and the phone rang.

It was the high school calling me about my nephew clayton.

The nurse said that he was having a mild asthma attack and I needed to come get him..

I said does he not have any medication there she said no he didnt..just his inhaler and it wasnt working.

Being I have a respiratory back ground I take asthma very seriously I have seen people die from not taking asthma seriously... this scared me so the kids and I hopped into the car and made the 5 minute trip in 2 minutes...

The timing was terrible because school was letting out and it was pack..

I zipped in the one way the wrong way and found the only parking spot availble..<thank you GOD>

As I was running I heard the nurse scream at the other lady I have called the ambulance he is crashing on us..

SHIT SHIT SHIT was all I could think...

Crashing on us is medical talk for going down hill

When I got into the building my nephew was in a wheelchair hanging his head down and wheezing so hard I could heard it with my bare ears 3 feet away...

He was trying to stay calm and he could barely talk..

Everyone was scared the nurse the principal came in...

Finall the firemen got there and started a breathing treatment on him quick..They started asking if he had ever been intubated before..<which basically means a tube down his throat to help him breath>

clayton said no..they said well we are going to wait and see how this goes..

When my nephew could talk he said he had blew 400 that morning.. <this measure his lung volume > normal lung volume for him is 600-700..

I told him that he should of never been outside working out for wresling with his lungs so comprimized...

I could pinch his head off... and to not have any meds for the nurse at school to administer...

Lets just say ..I was so scared that he was going to fall over dead while we waited...

Typical teenagers thinking nothing will ever happen


I went today to eat lunch with my 5th grader Cameron.

Yesterday his math teacher basically said she couldn't handle him in her class...That isnt exactly how she said it but that is what she meant.

Cameron is ADHD..He is a sweet hearted child but he has a problem not making noise..sometimes I think its like a tic..

I don't know..He will sing in class or click or shuffle..especially while he is thinking or is bored or nervous

Personally I think these teachers are so used to being in a cushey school that don't know what they are doing...

He has one teacher he has no problems with...She gets him she understands..

It makes me sad...I'm tired of fighting dumb ass teachers..

I know if I said something to the principal she would jump on them because she is very caring and real... plus we are friends..She doesnt tolerate teachers that are high maintaince..She told me this herself

Everything I do has to be a fight...not literally..Where teachers like this when I was a kid.I don't remember...

Today I was sitting in the cafeteria waiting on Cameron..

I thought these children are so blessed they even pipe in music while the kids eat..I mean they do so much for the kids..I never had any of this stuff growing up..computers out the wazoo..they go to a camp in october...

I looked around and just felt sad..tears weld up in my eyes..

I feel hopeless and alone...My child is different so fucking get over it he is still a person look pass the behavior and see inside him...

Maybe it bothers me because it reminds me of my childhood making fun of me because my mom made my clothes..or my ears were too big..or my tooth was chipped..I don't know.

Maybe its because I know its only going to get harder once he goes into junior high or they call it middle school now..

Then I have 8 teachers to deal with...

He is in a special mastery center that helps him so now I guess he will be in it for math also...

I wanted to say to the teacher maybe the problem is always pointing him out...

I will be glad he is out of her class...I didnt care for her right off the bat...

I sorry for all the doom and gloom...

is It too much

I am passed angry I am apathic...It is not good for me to get to this point. I'm done when I get to this point...

My husband doesnt get it or doesnt want to get it..

It is hard for me to write this because I know my grandmother reads it...

but it is my journal and I should feel free to write whatever I want..

I'm heart is tired...

My son came in crying that a little boy had hurt him in our neighboorhood...This kid has done this over and over again..

Who always talks to the kid about hurting my kids ME. so this time I just set there..I looked at hubby and said you need to go talk to this little boy...

My hubby just looks at me and sits there...He picks his butt getting dress 15 minutes later he is still shuffling around so he doesn't have to deal..He never wants to deal with anything emotional..

I said the little boy will be gone by the time you get out there once again he picks his but as slow as he can..

I walk into the bathroom get dressed in 2 seconds and walk out the door.Hubby follows me I walk into the kids back yard and begain to talk to him.

Does hubby walk up beside me to reenforse me or support me..

Nope he does what he usually does..abandons me..

He peeks his head in the gate of the backyard which is as far away as he can get...I turn around 2 minutes later and he has left...

Yes once again as always I am protecting my kids or myself and he tucks tail and walks away...

If I had a fulltime job I would leave...not because my hubby is a bad person because he wants a roomate and friend...

I want more and after 11 years I realize I'm the only one who is in this for love....

We just shook are heads...People freaking out and panicing....

Gas stations running out of gas or running up the prices...

Come on people your making it worse...

On a sad note a bus full of elderly people riding a bus away from houston caught on fire and blew up...

Last I heard 24 dead...So tragic....

The oxygen bottles are what they think blew up...

Hurricane information

My city has a online forum I found this on it thought is was interesting and useful...I heard one of our gas stations ran out of gas...gee people chill out..the panic is causing worst problem

Several (if not many) FOLers have asked "What should I do to prepare for a storm?"

It's a prudent question that deserves a rational answer.

The following message was circulated today in our community, and is good list of advice for most people -- so I thought I'd share it.

Storm Preparedness

Dear Residents:

We ask that all residents please read the following information thoroughly and be prepared for Hurrican Rita. At this point, Hurricane Rita is expected to make land-fall sometime between Friday evening and Saturday morning. According to current new reports, the Dallas area could receive dangerous winds and severe rain.

We encourage all the residents to take responsibility for themselves and their personal property. In the event of an emergency, please call local law enforcement or fire officials.

All entry/exit gates will be opened on Friday and will remain open until further notice.

Both pool areas and common area will be closed on Friday, and will remained closed until further notice.

Before the storm:

• Listen to the County Warning System on the radio. Do exactly as advised. Have current information on the location of the Red Cross shelters and directions to get there. If there are ill or disabled persons in the apartment contact their doctors for instructions. Be sure to take the necessities such as prescriptions, bedding, enough food for 24 hours, flashlights, and a battery-powered radio. Make arrangement for your pet(s), as pets may not be permitted in public shelters.

• Clear off your balconies, patios, and front door areas.

• Fill the bathroom tub with water. This water may be used for drinking should the water supply become interrupted or contaminated. It may be poured into the toilet to induce flushing.

• Stock daily necessities. Items such as the following are recommended. Non-perishable food, bottled water, first aid kits, blankets, manual can opener, batteries, battery-powered radio, prescriptions, diapers, baby food, extra eye glasses, hearing aids, and battery-powered lanterns. Back up batteries for each item requiring a battery are also recommended.

• Fill all vehicles withgas. In the event of loss of electricity, the gas pumps will not operate.

• Carry all important paperwork and personal identification with you.

• If you have not recently done so, take a complete inventory of your personal property and store the document in a waterproof container (plastic bag, etc.) in a safe place.

If power is lost:

• Use flashlights instead of candles or kerosene lamps
• Use caution when cooking when flames are present. A gust of wind through a door or window could start an accidental fire.
• Do not run generators or propane tanks inside the apartment. Carbon monoxide will spread through the home and cause major health problems or death. Additionally, generators require well-ventilated area. In the event of prolonged power outage, the use of gasoline-operated machinery such as generators is not recommended on the patios, balconies, and breezeways.
• Switch all service breakers to the “off” position to eliminate any chance of damage to appliances due to power surges. This will also eliminate any appliances left on from becoming a fire source when power is restored.
• Turn your air conditioning unit to the “off” position. If left in the “on” position, it will create a surge to the unit and possible damage to the compressor once power is restored – resulting in no air conditioning.
• Use the telephone for emergencies only. Jammed phone lines may obstruct emergency calls for police, fire, doctors, and Red Cross disaster units.
• Conserve refrigeration. Open the refrigerator/freezer door as little as possible. Food will spoil in the refrigerator if the power is lost for more than a few hours. Freezers will keep food several days if doors are not opened after power failure, but do not refreeze food once it begins to thaw.
• Should your fire/smoke alarm or intrusion alarm go off, and there is no fire, remove the cover and take the battery out.
• If you plan to leave home this weekend and normally exit through an automatic garage door, be sure you can enter through an alternate door if a power failure prevents you from entering through the garage.



A Big Thanks

Thank you to all that e-mailed me showing concern of the hurricane Rita.I am in DFW or Dallas Fort Worth area so we should be ok..

However on the news they said it will cover a 250 looks like we will get some Tropical Storm type rain..

Mother Nature has her own agenda so we will see..

Thank you for all the kind words and love

Landon and Ashely's wedding page


I hope this link works Ashely set up a webpage for her and my son' landons wedding...


News came on and said they were taking all the evacutees girls at the reunion area to purchase new clothes..

Humm ok i'm sure they need clothes

Here is the kicker..they are taking them in a limosine to the Galleria....

Ok a limo?? and the galleria..The galleria come on..

Take them to a mall that has more resonalble priced stuff so the money will go a long way.

The galleria is a very overpriced posh mall for the wealthy.

I knew they <the powers to be over the money> would start acting stupid..

They say 43 percent are staying in TEXAS well Hell I would too if I was being catered to...

I realize the majority are hard working familes..

I'm all for helping but when you start being stupid with the money people will start to expect it...They<the powers that be> are painting a unrealistic view of what its like In Dallas Fort Worth.

WEll anyway thats all I have to say..

Which Horror Movie Are You?

The Blair Witch Project
You feel lost, and like you have noone to talk to. You know there are people there, you know you can get help, but you are too fearful of the outside world to the point of letting noone in. You might have a couple of close friends, but you push them away because your own fears overtake all feelings and emotions you might have. You aren't worrying about a specific thing, just life in general.


What latest trend bother you most?

I think I'm pretty hip but have you seen the jeans some of the kids are wearing..

I talking about the jeans that look like they have been washed in motor oil, drug behind a truck and stabbed with an ice pick..

My nephew said what cool jeans.

I said dang I will tear up some jeans for you I will not pay 75 for motor oil looking soaked jeans 


I hate SBC they suck raw eggs...

I know now why I left after 16 years..Jack asses

We get a discount on celluar phones...I haven't had a celluar phone in 3 years and now I need one..Due to the work I'm doing now

Can we go to the store and get one Hell No...We have to call here and there and them go online put in all the information have them ship the phone to the store and pick it up at the store and pay there.

Now if were paying there and the phones are all the same why the hell can't we just go to the store and do this

Is that a bunch of bullshit or what..Then the chick says it will take anywhere from 3 days to 3 weeks...

then she tells my husband well if you need one now you can go to the store and get one right away but you can't have your disacount...

I got one word for you Bite My @@@

I told husband forget it..

It took me months just to get him to inquire about it you really think he is going to jump through all those hoops to get a phone for my safety...

Too much effort...

SBC does that so you wont go through with it and just pay the full price,,

Hell the discount is part of the job...

She said overall most were very thankful and kind..

But <you knew there was a but> She said she did run into a few ungrateful people..

She walked up to a woman and offered her a bag of nice clothing...

The girl turn her nose up and said<hateful> I don't wear those type of clothes...I need more sexy clothes with some slits here and there...

She said she looked at the girl threw the bag down at the girls feet and said

Look I'm not making your clothes special order...this is what you get...Do what you want with them or wear what you have on..She walked away

Other countries donate various things

Hurricane Katrina has devastated New Orleans and other parts of the U.S. Gulf Coast, killing hundreds of people and possibly thousands, and drawing pledges of support from all over the world.

The State Department said by early Friday local time, 44 nations and international organizations had offered help, ranging from medical teams and tents to cash donations.

These included offers from Australia, Belgium, Britain, Canada, China, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, France, Germany, Greece, Honduras, Israel, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, Russia, South Korea, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates, Venezuela, NATO and the Organization of American States.

A State Department official said a needs assessment was being done and it would probably become clearer today which offers would be accepted.

The United Nations has offered to help coordinate international relief. Following is a detailed list of aid offered by governments.


EUROPEAN UNION: Offered to send experts but there has been no request for assistance, the European Commission said. EU countries are ready to give the United States oil if it requests help, EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana said on Friday. But British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw said this was not what the EU had in mind when it discussed how to help.

FRANCE: Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin said France was ready to offer support, telling TF1 television: "We have rescue teams based in the Caribbean and we are naturally ready to provide aid to the Americans, and that is what we have told them."

GERMANY: Has offered mobile units to provide clean water, military hospital facilities and medical aid.

IRELAND: A Department of Foreign Affairs spokeswoman said: "We have been contacted by the families of about 40 people in the affected area but that wouldn't be a comprehensive figure because there may be others who have not yet been in touch". New Orleans is home to many Irish Americans and nationals who have a big business presence in the city.

ITALY: Has offered to "immediately" send aid and evacuation specialists, Italy's civil protection unit said. Authorities have prepared two military transport planes to fly amphibious vessels, pumps, generators, tents and personnel to New Orleans and other areas. They were awaiting word from U.S. officials, the unit said.

LUXEMBOURG: Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn, in a veiled criticism of the handling by U.S. authorities of the hurricane, said the disaster showed the need for a strong state that could help poor people. "You see in this example that even in the 21st century you need the state, a good functioning state, and I hope that for all these people, these poor people, that the Americans will do their best," he told reporters at an EU foreign ministers meeting in Newport, Wales.

RUSSIA: Has offered to help with rescue efforts, but is still awaiting a reply from Washington. "From the first day of the tragedy we offered our help to the U.S. government. Above all with heavy transport planes, which can be loaded with helicopters and generators -- as there is no electricity in the area of the catastrophe," Defence Minister Sergei Ivanov told reporters on Friday.

SPAIN: Expects to receive a formal request on Friday to release gasoline stocks to the United States and is prepared to grant it, an Industry Ministry spokesman said.

SWEDEN: The Rescue Authority said on Friday it was on stand-by to supply water purifying equipment, healthcare supplies and emergency shelters if needed, but had not yet received a request. "We must know if they need such things, but it doesn't seem to be clear what is needed," said Rescue Authority spokesman Mats Oscarsson. Four Swedes were missing in the New Orleans area, the Foreign Ministry said.


AUSTRALIA: "We're going to provide A$10 million and the bulk of that money, if not all of it, will go to the American Red Cross," said Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer. "I know you can make the argument that America is a well off country, the world's biggest economy, but remember their non-government organisations depend on donations from private citizens in America to provide the relief efforts." The Australian government said there may be up to 24 Australians trapped in Louisiana in the aftermath of Katrina.

JAPAN: Will provide $200,000 to the American Red Cross to assist victims of Hurricane Katrina, the Japanese Foreign Ministry said on Friday. Japan will also identify needs in affected regions via the U.S. government and will provide up to $300,000 in emergency supplies such as tents, blankets and power generators if it receives requests for such assistance, the ministry said.

SINGAPORE: The Singapore Armed Forces, responding to requests by the United States Texas Army National Guard, has sent three Chinook helicopters to Fort Polk, Louisiana, to help in relief efforts. The government said the Chinooks will help to ferry supplies and undertake airlift missions.

SOUTH KOREA: Has pledged aid and is waiting for a U.S. response, a government official said. "We have sent our intention to offer recovery aid," a Foreign Ministry official said on Friday.

SRI LANKA: Donating $25,000 to the American Red Cross.


CANADA: offered to help in any way it can and the navy is preparing a ship full of emergency disaster relief supplies to be sent when a request comes.

VENEZUELA: President Hugo Chavez, a vocal critic of the United States, offered to send cheap fuel, humanitarian aid and relief workers to the disaster area.

nichols cage jay-z diddy all pledge 1 million

Jay-Z and Diddy have pledged $1 million to the American Red Cross to help victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The two decided to make a joint donation in hopes of inspiring others, to do what they can to help those in need.

Jay-Z told the media, “This is our community, when I turn on CNN I see a lot of black people on the streets. I know it’s other people too, but those projects have been hit hard.”

Diddy agrees. “We are all descendants from each other’s families. When you hear black people say ‘brothers’ and sisters,’ it’s really true. These are all people that I know I’m related to somehow, some way – the human race family.”

Jay-Z even went as far as to put in calls to NBA star LeBron James and rapper Kanye West asking them to make donations.

Just yesterday, Celine Dion and the partners of her Las Vegas show, pledged a $1 million donation to the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. Even Oscar-winner Nicolas Cage, who has a home in New Orleans donated $1 million to the American Red Cross for hurricane relief efforts for ravaged New Orleans.

Please do what you can to help these people out, if you can not afford to donate anything there is always canned goods, maybe you can go through some of those old clothes that you have had hanging in the closet for ages. We all have to do our parts.

If you would like to make a donation please visit this is the official American Red Cross website.
