Ugh, sooo mad!

So my husband started a new job today and before he left early this morning he came upstairs and woke me up. He was irate!! Someone broke into both our cars. They stole change out of my car (i didnt have much else in there) and they stole everything out of his car. They stole his change, his pocket knife, and the biggest thing was that we had this big CD book thing which had probably close to 50 CD's in it. GONE! I'm so upset! Some of those CD's are irreplaceable and even the ones that are replaceable we can't afford to go out and buy all of them right now! We think it might have been this meth head prostitute that walks up and down our streets at all hours of the night. I think she was going to steal something off of our porch or maybe my car the other day. My husband left and she watched him leave and then started walking up to our porch looking at my stuff on the porch (I have a bunch of statues and stuff). She came all the way up to the porch. Not the steps, just the side of the porch. Then she saw me standing in the window watching her and she left. I went outside and yelled at her to stay off our property and later that night my husband yelled at her too when she walked by. We think she stole something that night from someone else's porch cuz she was looking around and went up to a porch and walked away really fast. We've heard that she's not right in the head and whoever broke into our cars wasn't just doing it for the money. The stole my husbands freakin' chapstick for gods sake! They also stole some of our utility bills that were laying on the front seat! Also, my husband had some steal toed shoes in the back seat and they stole ONE shoe, not both of them, just one!! UGH! I'm just waiting for her to walk by our house again! I'm sooo angry about those CD's, most of them were all of our fave CD's too and now they are all gone!!

Control Your Kids!!

Some people don't deserve to have children! If you aren't going to teach your kids manners and respect then you should just get yourself fixed!

I'm talkin about the people who let their kids run around screaming and yelling in public while they just gossip with their friends. It's disrespectful to other people and makes you look like an asshole for not watchin your kids! I can't count how many times I have been in a restaurant trying to enjoy a meal with my family while having other kids, older kids, not toddlers running around the restaurant yelling and screaming and bothering other patrons. Where are the parents you might ask? They are just sitting there letting it go on while they talk about the weather or whatever stupid topic of the day it may be.

Now, before you get mad, I'm not talking about babies and toddlers who are throwing temper tantrums because as any parent knows you can't control that. If a baby or child is upset you can't force them to stop crying. You can't tape their mouth shut no matter how much you might want to, lol! The respectful thing to do is to take the child out of the situation until they calm down as to not bother the other people around you. But anyway, that's not my topic of discussion right now. I'm talkin about the parents that just let their kids do whatever they want without any regard to other people. What are you teaching those kids? Nothing. The only thing you may be teaching them is that it's ok to run around squealing and acting like an animal!

A funny thing is, I'm sure people judge my husband and I by our looks. My husband is covered in tattoos and I have multiple piercings and tattoos. When we are out with our children I sometimes notice other people staring at us. I'm sure they are stereotyping us because of the way we look and I can only imagine the things they are saying about us being parents. However, not to toot my own horn but my kids are very well behaved in public. Ofcourse, they are just toddlers right now and do have their little meltdowns here and there but when we are in public they are usually quiet and well behaved. We have even had people come up to us and compliment us on how well behaved our children are. We don't beat the crap out of them, we just teach them that they can't act like animals when out in public (I'm not saying they don't act like that at home, lol)...and we will continue to teach them to have manners and respect for others throughout the years! Even though I may look a little bit different than you I am respectful, kind and caring towards others unless you cross that fine line!

The legalization of Marijuana has been an ongoing debate for many years! There are always two sides to it and I, for one, support the legalization of Marijuana, but don't believe it will ever happen.

People who don't know about Marijuana just believe everything the press tells them about the subject. The truth is, Marijuana is virtually harmless. Yes, there are some dangers that come along with it, inhaling any kind of smoke into your lungs can be dangerous, that's a given. Other than that, Marijuana is a lot less harmful than people think it is. People use Marijuana for many different reasons. I know people that use it to help with ADHD because it helps them to be able to calm down and focus better. Many people take it for pain. Marijuana is a GREAT sleep aid. It helps you relax and lets you drift off to sleep when you might normally be tossing and turning all night long.

Many people believe that Marijuana is a gateway drug, but I don't agree with that. I admit, I have smoked Marijuana. I'm not ashamed of it because I dont see anything wrong with it. It's a natural plant that comes up out of the ground. It doesn't make me see crazy things. It doesn't make me go nuts and want to hurt anyone. It helps me to be calm and relaxed and have a lot more patience! Marijuana is the only drug that I have ever done and ever will do. My mind is strong enough that I don't need to move on to using more harmful substances.

Marijuana doesn't make people commit crimes. If anyone reading this has used Marijuana they know that it's actually the opposite! Like I stated above, Marijuana makes you calm and relaxed. You don't want to go and cause trouble you just want to relax, lol!

Alcohol is a lot more harmful than Marijuana is, yet it is legal. Alcohol makes people act really stupid and sometimes even angry to the point of being dangerous. Marijuana doesn't do that, it's just the opposite, but it is still illegal!

I once was watching Montel Williams and he was discussing the use of Marijuana. As most of you know, he suffers from a very debilitating disease. On this show he admitted that he uses medicinal Marijuana and goes on to say that he has tried every pain pill out there and nothing worked except Marijuana. If it weren't for Marijuana he wouldn't be able to sleep or even be able to do his show! If it's so helpful then why is it still illegal??

I will always support the legalization of Marijuana but don't think it will even happen. The government will want to figure out some kind of way to tax it so that they can reap the monetary benefits of it, but most people are too closed minded and ignorant about Marijuana that they will never let it be legal.

3 hots and a cot for Paris!

Ok, the whole Paris Hilton thing is just reallllly getting on my nerves. If it was any average Joe they would have served the full sentence no if's, and's or but's about it!

I was irate when they let her go on house arrest. She has a multi-million dollar mansion what kind of punishment is that? She can have anything she wants delivered to her door! I was very happy to hear that they sent her back to jail and do admit that I smirked when I saw pics of her crying and yelling, "it's not fair!!" However, I do think she should have to serve her FULL sentence, not just part of it .

Why is it that the rich and famous can get away with just about anything? IF they are sent to jail it's only for half of the sentence. It seems to me that money buys everything, even freedom, so if you are rich and famous you can pretty much get away with anything!

Maybe Paris needs a slap of reality in jail. I hope they will leave her with the regular prison population and not give her special privelages or privacy. No one else gets that so why should she? She did the crime, make her do the time! Her pretty little face should be able to find lots of girlfriends in prison!

Marriage is not easy!

On a more serious note today, I'm going to talk about marriage! It's a scary word to some and yet an exciting word for others.

When you first enter into a relationship with someone, most times everything is coming up roses. The passion is there. You can't stand to be away from the other person. You want to spend every waking moment with this person and be with them forever, right? A lot of couples (especially young ones) are quick to jump into marriage. I am one of them, even though I wasn't necessarily "young". My husband and I were married one year after we met. We were inseparable from day one and made many plans to grow old together as cliche as that may sound.

As time goes on, couples get into a routine. Nothing is exciting anymore. The little habits that you used to consider cute now just makes your blood boil! Stresses of children and money problems get in the way and all of this usually ends up in a full out war between man and wife.

Marriage is hard work! It's not as easy as it looks to most.My husband and I got into this routine and things just kept escalating between us. We were arguing almost every day. I would get angry at him for stupid little things, he would become defensive and angry at me for it. It was a vicious cycle and finally got to the point where my husband thought he needed some time to himself to think things over. It was supposed to just be temporary but our separation ended up lasting for 9 months! It was the hardest 9 months of my life. I spent so many nights crying myself to sleep. Hating myself because I felt that if I had been a better wife he wouldn't have left. I spent a lot of time doing research on, which has a lot of great advice for marital problems. Even though the situation was painful, it forced me to look deep into myself and face the things that I didn't like about myself and work on fixing them so that I could be a better person and be a better wife in the end. I talked to other married couples and got a lot of great advice. One of the things that always stuck in my head is to put each other first. I put my husband first and he puts me first. Our goal is to always make sure the other one is happy!

My husband and I have been back together for a little over a month now. So far, so good, but there is always that fear in the back of my head that things will go back to the way they were. We have both learned to be more considerate of the other person and not to take the other person for granted.

If you are thinking about marriage, my words of advice would be: Put each other first, communicate and LISTEN when the other person is talking to you. Don't get defensive immediately just listen and try to see things from their point of view. If you feel yourself getting angry just leave the situation and talk about it calmly at another time. Remember the things that you love about your spouse and over look the things that get on your nerves because usually those things are unimportant. Always make your spouse feel important and loved. Always make time for just the two of you with no kids and no other couples. If you sincerely love the person you married be willing to negotiate to make it work!

Our NY Experience...

I think this is our stop, LOL

World Trade Center site

Broadway Street

Our alarm clock was set for 3:00 am saturday morning to give us time to wake up and get to the airport. At 2:45am Northwest airlines called us with a recording saying that our flight had been cancelled and they put us on another flight scheduled to arrive in NY at 5:30pm! SEVEN hours after the original arrival time! I was irate and freaking out, so Roger called the airlines and told them that we were on a tight schedule and needed something else, so they got us on a Continental flight that would change planes in Cleveland and would arrive in NY one minute later than our original plane! Since we were put on new flights at the last minute we had separate seats on both flights. Luckily, the little puddle jumper plane from Toledo to Cleveland only had 4 people on it (all 4 were supposed to be on the one that got cancelled), so we could sit wherever we wanted. However, the big plane from Cleveland to Laguardia was full and the grumpy old man sitting with Roger refused to switch seats with me, so I was at the front of the plane and my husband was in the back! Anyway, we saw some beautiful scenery on the way. The plane flew right over NYC and we could see everything from the plane. All of the skyscrapers and the statue of liberty.

We get off of the plane and not even 2 minutes of walking from the gate we literally run into Mark Henry from WWE! He looked really pissed though so we didn't try to talk to him. We get a shuttle to our hotel and in the middle of all of the airport traffic we see like 7 cops surrounding a car, trying to break into it. Some twat left her little kid (small enough to be in a car seat) in the car and the kid locked the doors!

We got to the hotel and since it was too early to check in we went to Jen and Mike's room. Crissie was already there waiting in their room, too! I haven't seen Crissie since our wedding almost 4 years ago and I haven't seen Jen in like 7 years?? Crissie then told us the story from the night before when she was sitting in the hotel lobby in the middle of the night and heard someone screaming and someone came running in saying, "Get a towel".. Thinking someone was hurt she went to look and there was a naked woman running around the parking lot waving the towel over her head, LOL! Only in NY, right??

Once we got checked into our room we got ready to go. The hotel guy told us that the best way to see the city is to buy the metro pass for $7, you can use the bus and subway all day long as much as you want until 3am. Awesome! So we got on the bus and took that to the subway and then went on to Grand Central Station. The subway is a great place for people watchers like me. I love to watch people and you can find alllll kinds of crazy different people on the subway. On our first subway ride we had a man just take out his guitar in the middle of the train and start singing for everyone. The city was packed! We first found a place to eat and then walked around some taking in all of the sights. Then decided to go to the Empire State Building. On the way there I see Morgan Freeman standing on the sidewalk taking photos with people..but wait, he isn't moving? It was a wax statue of him! I thought it was really him at first! We were at the Wax Museum but decided it was too expensive to go into, lol. Then we saw Dave Atell (not sure of the spelling) from the show Insomniac just sitting having a drink but I think he heard us talking about him because he got up and walked away really fast.

So, we get to the Empire State Building. UGH! It was hot out to begin with and we had to wait in line for almost 2 hours just to get up to the top and it was soo damned crowded up there we could barely even get a chance to see anything! By the time we finally DID get up there we were all so pissed off we just wanted to go back down. But guess what? There was a wait to get OUT of the building, too! Oh yeah and they wanted to charge $25 for the group photo they took of us HAHAHA! No way! I had my own camera and could get a lot of pics developed for $25!

After we finally got out of the Empire State Building we had plans to go get the ferry around the statue of liberty but we ended up at Ground Zero. There was a very somber feeling being at ground zero. There was a fire department right across the street from ground zero who were first on the scene when 9-11 happened. They had all kinds of memorials for their fallen firefighters and some of the firefighters who were there when it happened were out there meeting people.

We walked around some more and then decided it was time to go back to the hotel and relax a little bit before going to Duff's. That was a mess. It ended up taking us an hour and a half to get back to the hotel because of construction and other things along the way. We got back to the hotel, had dinner and then realized that we were all wayyy too tired and sore from all of the walking and couldn't deal with more public transportation to get to Duff's that night, LOL! We all ended up falling asleep soon after we got back to our rooms.

The next morning, Crissie found out that some of her friends had come to NY to look for her at Duffs, so she got ahold of them to meet them in the city later on and go home with them. We had breakfast with Jen and Mike before they left back to PA and then we headed off to the city again. Our first stop was the Staten Island Ferry which was a beautiful ride! Went right by the statue of liberty and you could see all of the city from the ferry. It was very relaxing!

After the Ferry we headed back to the Subway to find Crissie's friends. We saw lots of crazy things in the subway stations! After Crissie left, Roger and I were going to go to Rockefeller Center but ended up just walking around. I saw a bunch of lights and something told me to go that way. The crowds were getting bigger and bigger. People coming up to us offering us Rolex watches and Gucci purses! We ended up in Times Square! MTV building, Hard Rock Cafe, Planet Hollywood, M & M World, Broadway..all kinds of things. It was crowded there. Oh yeah, we also saw P. Diddy in his limo (ack). There were limos everywhere, cops everywhere, swat everywhere, street performers, everything! We found some Irish pubs and went into O'Lunneys so Roger could have an Irish beer. We went into Planet Hollywood and saw all sorts of cool props from different movies. We had dinner at Famiglia Pizza which was authentic sicilian pizza and was very famous for their pizza and I know why! yummmm! We ended up just walking around Broadway taking in all of the sights until we were too tired to do anything else! Then we headed back to our hotel and crashed. Had another horrible experience with Northwest Airlines on the way back (dont fly northwest!) but we made it home safely Monday evening. Ohio just seems so quiet and..boring after being in NYC..nothing is quiet there, lol!

Here are a few pics of our trip, to see all of them you can go to my myspace page and view my pics there!
