sick of owens

I'm not much on football. I had a boyfriend once in high school who adored it so I would sit with him and watch but it really bored me to death...

The ironic thing was in high school I was in band and we had to be at football games.. I never watched just talked to my neighbor checked out the cute guys and played my flute when told to...

So of course here we have the Dallas Cowboys... whoopee do I could care less I think athletics are over paid.. Pay them minimum wage is my vote.. So what they can catch a football .. I basically feel this way with all sports... although some take a lot more talent then catching a ball...

I am sick to death of hearing about the T K Owens...Send him back to where he came from... The news said he tried to kill himself today  and he said no I didn't..'Personally I don't care  about the argument all I know is every since they put him on the team its been nothing but drama....I;m sure the media is to blame also...

Basically I'm sick of it...I can't turn on even the news and its 30 minutes of T K  owens...

Stop already... We don't care...

People are dieing starving and many other things that should concern us... Not some overpaid whinny ass football player who wants attention...

sad news

my son came home friday and said..

Cameron: they came on the loud speaker at school and said a girl died that went to our school.. she was in the 7th grade

Me: oh honey that is sad did you know her?

Cameron: No I didnt she went to a different elementary school.

Me: I wonder how she died?.

Cameron: Well someone told me she killed herself.

Me: WHAT!!!! she is only in the 7th grade...

Me: that is so sad maybe that didnt really happen maybe it was something else...

Then I got this e-mail:from a moms group I belong was forwarded to me



I am sure most everyone has received the email from the church in regards to Emily McBride. However, it may not have been received if you do not have a child in junior or senior high ministries.   Emily committed suicide sometime on Thursday.  I do not have the specifics as of yet.  I was out of town today and found out from my son who is in 7th grade with her. Emily's mom is a dear friend and client of mine who attended M2M just last Friday (Encouragement Friday).  She sat at the pink table and was looking forward to being a part of M2M.  Her mom is Tammy Sterling and her step dad is Sam Sterling. They moved here a couple of years ago and have been actively involved in the church since that time.   Please be praying for Tammy and her family.  Emily has a younger sister still in elementary.  As a sixth grader, I too lost a sibling.  It was not under these tragic conditions, but I know the grief and loss all too well that her sister is feeling.  I cannot imagine what her parents are going through.


Please pass along to our M2M sisters so that we may all lift the family up in prayer.  When I know more details I will pass them along, or if you should find outmore please share.


In Christ's love,



SHe was in the 7th grade what could this poor girl have been so sad about that she wanted to end her life....So sad......Just breaks my heart...

Ya just never know

Today  I went by a friend of mines house her name is D < abbreviated> I walked into her house and see her sitting in the closet....

Me: Hey what cha doing?

D:<with a look of frustration>  sitting down  here in the bathroom closet trying to calm down because the shower I'm repairing isnt cooperating and I want to cuss and scream but the kids are around.

Me: I laugh

We start talking about my 11 year old Cameron...about his adhd and his funny sense of humor and how he can make  all kinds voices....

Me: cameron has this keen way of mimicing any dialect he hears or a persons voice.. All he has to do is hear a few words and he can start talking like that person...the other day my husband and I  heard this voice like a person singing opera comging from the bathroom my husband said what is that bathroom opera ..we laughed and said that's our cameron.....

D: thats too funny, ..........I only knew one guy that could do that

Me: Really he was funny

 D: Yeah I went to school with him you know back in Terrel Texas where I was raise you remember

Me: Oh yeah I remember that where your parents still live and a lot of your family

D:  Yeah <she laughes >..he was funny and could imitate all kind of voices we used to laugh at him all the time..

Me: Really who was he...

D :<She thinks> His name has changed its now hummm..... oh  yeah.... Jamie Foxx

Me: THE jamie Foxx...< I say with a shocked face>

D : Yeah except I know him as Eric

Me: <with a shocked look> Did you know him... know him??

D : Yeah <she says like no big deal> he was a year under me but he hung out with me and my boyfriend and friends at the time they all played football together.

D : She laughes and says he wasnt really a very good football player....but he was a funny guy so I guess that worked out for him...

She says all this like its no big deal..

I have this shocked look on my face.. I have known this friend for serveral years and she has never mention this fact..

D: I think he still stays in touch with one of our mutual freinds which she mentions by name but I can't think of it right now...

Me: I guess you guys can keep him grounded because you knew him when he was a nobody...

D:Yeah..He acts different now than when I went to school with him. but your right I knew him when he was a big fat nobody like us   She laughes....

This just prove you never know who your friends know...

Ya just never know.....

Support our guys

How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one.
If you go to the web site at you can pick out a thank you card and the Xerox Corporation will print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq.  You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to some member of the armed services.  It is FREE and it only
takes a second.

I love this new artist I wish I knewhow to put the music with these lyrics...but I don't..this song reminds me of my life

Here is her website



"Heal Over"

It isn't very difficult to see why
You are the way you are
Doesn't take a genius to realise
That sometimes life is hard
It's gonna take time
But you'll just have to wait
You're gonna be fine
But in the meantime

Come over here lady
Let me wipe your tears away
Come a little nearer baby
Coz you'll heal over
Heal over
Heal over someday

And I don't wanna hear you tell yourself
That these feelings are in the past
You know it doesn't mean they're off the shelf
Because pain's built to last
Everybody sails alone
But we can travel side by side
Even if you fail
You know that no one really minds
Come over here lady

Don't hold on but don't let go
I know it's so hard
You've got to try to trust yourself
I know it's so hard, so hard

Come over here lady
Let me wipe your tears away
Come a little nearer baby
Coz you'll heal over, heal over, heal over someday

homework and cub scouts

So I spent several hours helping Cameron with his overdue research on Micro biologist... Yes I did alot of the work I didn't want to be sitting there all freaking day.. I made him sit right by me and offer ideas etc...

I signed up Zachary to cub scouts and decided to be a volunteer.

So I get this e-mail that 'I'm the leader I thought WTH...I never said I wanted to be leader...

I'm supposed to meet them at star bucks and we will see...

I'm excited about scouts that the kids learn all kinds of stuff about survival, kindness and giving back to the community. They will learn about others besides there own wants and needs should be cool I hope... I never was a girl scout so I can't say

My hubby told me he ran me some bath water.. I said good now that I have finished my homework<Cameron Research bag> hope I get an A... WE laughed....

I said gee I wish all I had to worry about it homework...and being sent to my room...

Please Daddy send me to my room.

He laughs....and says yeah I will send you to your room....<evil laugh>

I said nope get your mind out of the lol
