I moved!!

So, we found a house and moved to Bridge City Texas. You remember me talking about Bridge City right? It was the city during hurricane Ike that was completely under water and they had to rescue people off their roofs before the hurricane even made land fall. Now is a good time to mention, I HATE hurricanes. So far this year, so good, but we have roughly another 4 months of hurricane season to go.

The house we moved into is super tiny. Friends are politely calling it, cozy. I say its temporary, but maybe not. Its a nice neighborhood, with good people...and to me that's speaks volumes over the size of the house. My mom once told me, people do the same thing in mansions that they do in tiny houses. True That.

Moving day drama:

My daughters dog, 'Monster' decided to jump out the back of the truck while we were going 65mph, and he was tied down.
Are you getting visions of National Lampoons Vacation? Yeah it was something like that.
I was watching out my rear view mirror when he did it, and made my husband stop and pull over. He and my daughter then got out an surveyed the damage. It looked horrible, there was blood everywhere. After getting him home, we realized it wasn't that bad. He scraped his back paws on the tire and he was skinned up pretty bad. Its been 2 weeks now and hes back to his old self, running around like nothing happened. All I'm going to say is, I am so glad I was watching when I did, or he would've died, and the cry-fest from my daughter would've lasted days instead of 1 day. Dogs are so stupid.

Here are pics of my oldest 3 kids..the other 2 are never around when anyone has a camera. Maybe because people don't have cameras around video games...which is where they are spending their summer-in front of the xbox 360.
I need to set up our pool, but Geeze its like 108 degrees out, and that doesn't sound like anything I want to do.

Fuck my life.

Long story short.

My landlord, lets just call him douche bag, informed us on May 18th that he has sold the house were living in and we have to be out by June 15th. We cant find a damn thing to rent. To make matters worse, my husband hasnt been working many hours. I'm like 2 weeks from becoming homeless.
It should be common fuckin courtesy to inform your tenants that your 'thinking' about selling the house they are living in, instead of waiting until its sold and then saying 'closing date is June 15Th, you need to be out by then'. I just wish, said douche bag would have something really bad happen to him, in other words: Karma. I hate selfish people.
He informed us of this over the phone and then sends me a letter that says "we can pay 500.00 for the two weeks in June and 33.00 a day for the last 2 weeks of June if we need to stay those two weeks'. Is he fucking kidding me? What about the 1000.00 deposit you still have of mine, douche bag?
Im so pissed. and frustrated. I need a miracle or something.
Incidentally, wasnt he suppose to inform us of this with a certified letter or something instead of a phone call, and then a sloppy written letter sent via regular mail?

In other news.

Maverick got all his hair cut off. He donated 10 inches to locks of love. I was sad to see his shoulder length locks cut down to a buzz cut, but it will grow back. Dakota got 9 inches of her hair chopped off for a locks of love donation as well.
School ends today and Im super depressed. Anyway, back to packing, I dont know when I will post again.

Where did time go?

Happy Birthday to the center of my Universe....


He is 10 years old. (we were stumped on what to get him, but he loved what we found for him-a psp with 3 movies and 3 games.) He also recieved alot of gifts and money from friends and family, thanks to all that came!

A few pics from his party this past weekend. (and I mean few, there were hundreds-I will post more when I get a chance). Maverick shared his birthday party with his cousin, who turned 9 a few days ago, thats whats up with all the candles on the cake. (It was also my best friend Floras birthday as well, she turned 38, but due to firelaws (haha Jay) we resulted to using only one candle for her personal cheesecake. Shes pictured below with her ultra adorable baby boy, Kevin. (ashton-who hates kids said, 'everyone needs a kevin'..he was just THAT cute)

Hunter went back to school today!!

However, he still has pnuemonia, so says the chest x-ray he had on Friday.

Tuesday, March 24, 2009

Around the house...

nothings really new.

Maverick stayed up all night playing some zombie game, so I know he will be falling asleep in school today. They have his dads number, he can take care of that, after all hes the one that bought that xbox 360.

Dakota wants to cut her hair. I said no. End of discussion.

Ashton wants to get that job at the local grill, but they said he needed to cut his hair. His hair isnt even that long. I mean, its not like Mavericks-past his shoulders. Im assuming they want him to have a buzz? Thats ok, I think he looks cute with a buzz...although I dont think hes that willing.

Hunter's dr appointment is Friday. Hopefully he can go back to school next monday. His class sent him over 30 get well cards yesterday, which I thought was so sweet.

Hunters home...

but he still has pneumonia.

Hes on a strong antibiotic and an inhaler. He has to stay home from school until he sees the doctor next Wednesday and she will determine when he can go back.

Sunday, March 15, 2009


I took Hunter to the e.r on Friday morning. He has pneumonia that is covering his entire left lung and will be in the hospital for the next 7 days, or longer.
He will then have to miss more school to being on antibiotics for another week when he comes home and have limited activities so he doesn't over exert himself.
Vince is staying with him at the hospital.

Spring Break-Day 3.

Hunter is still sick, but Im forcing him to eat toast. He hasnt eaten anything since Sunday, and hes been puking and running a fever and not drinking enough...thus, hes getting dehydrated. I told him he was going to have to go to the hospital and get poked with needles if he didnt start eating or drinking and he just said, So. Isnt the threat of scaring kids with hospital and needles suppose to work? Im still making him eat the toast. I made the second threat, 'If you dont eat that toast, Im calling your dad, and do you REALLY want him to come home'? (This always works because its like good cop, bad cop around here and Vince is the bad cop)

Dakota is bored. She just asked me if she had an Adams Apple. Im like, stupid. She giggles and says, ohhhhhhhh. She shouldve been blond.

Maverick stayed up all night and just now passed out.

Ashton is being a complete prick because this is what teen boys do? Im about to beat his ass, never mind the fact hes bigger than me...I will and can take him down.

Dakota: We should go to the beach.


Our beaches are all fucked up due to hurricane Ike 6 months ago. Still screwed up. Go figure.

Ok, thats it for me. I went back to bed today and just got up which means I havent done a damn thing. Come to think of it, I havent done anything for days...weeks? It must be getting bad, my husband said yesterday, 'If you got time, do you think you can do those dishes'? Since he asked nice I guess I can....ask a kid to do them. :)

My husband is a dork.


Because only he would walk downstairs, covered up in our daughters Hello Kitty throw, humming the Star Wars theme.

I guess I couldve been nice and gave him Mavericks light saber. But Im not nice.

Official spring break-day 1.

Hunter is sick. Fever, chills, body aches, the whole nine yards. He didnt find amusing when i said, 'Hey! At least you wont miss any school'!

Dakota is dying of cramps. She didnt find it amusing when i said, 'At least your not cramping during school'!

Ashton went to a job interview. I hope this first job thing will make him do better in school. you know, that whole, 'minimum wage jobs blow so i better get a good education'. On the other hand, this established band in New york wants him to play guitar for him, but theyre not getting the fact HES ONLY 16 and his mother isnt ready to let him go yet. (They are like in their 20's)

Maverick...well...nothing new or anything about him. Hes playing zombie nazis or something like that. Spring break = xbox 360 all week long.

Im hating the time change.

It blows.

I went to the store today. Before we go my husband says, I think I should take my 45.
I'm like...why.
He says, because you never know.
Never know what?!?! Do you seriously think someone is going to want to car jack your big ass diesel truck? SERIOUSLY??? I mean..its a fuckin tank. Hes like, 'that's why i got a concealed weapons license'. (He also mumbled something about only bringing 4 bullets because if you cant hit something with the first 4 bullets, you dont need to own a gun)

He is such a vigilante, don't get me started.

In a word:Redneck.

So, I go into the store, alone, because no way in hell am I allowing him to bring his 'baby' in with him. I love shopping alone. I don't have anyone bugging me for Evian water or ho-hos.

In case you didn't know, I don't drive.


My man = my personal driver.


Anxiety. major anxiety, I don't even like to be in a car, much less behind the wheel. I think its from too many car accidents as a teen. So, Ive never had a license. Ive never drove.

It doesn't help the situation that my husband treats the freeway like its the Indianapolis 500 and hes Richard Petty. I swear to God, we cant go anywhere without him doing his Nascar impressions.

Ok time to cook dinner. Fun times.

Today is...

technically the first day of spring break. For some reason my kids count the weekend as being part of spring break, so they insist they have 9 days off.

Wasnt it JUST winter break????

Tifeni wants 150.00 for her latest tattoo. I laughed before I said, no. That pretty much just pissed her off. Do I care?

Maverick and Hunter are already on my last nerve. They have spent the morning trying to kill each other. First with the nerf 603 (with turret) and then by sitting on each other. They are pretty big boys. Hey, as long as theyre not sitting on me!

Ashton went skateboarding. Vince wants to change jobs, so I told Ash, if hes going to break a leg, now is the time to do it, because I dont know how long the accident insurance will last.

Dakota is cleaning her room, because 'dad' threatened to take her sidekick away for the week. In teen terms, thats a death sentence. Remember when we were teens and we were lucky to use the home phone and never after 8pm?

Im updating again? Weird.

At least, weird for me. At this rate, I might do it everyday!! (Dont get your hopes up)

Yesterday was my best friends birthday (she had to remind me). She turned 53 and she insists she hates that number. I said why, you were just 52...I mean, its not like you went from 21 to 53 over night'. Shes like, 'I know, but I just hate it'. I remember freaking out over being 30, and now I will be 39 this year. Time flies.

I havent twittered today. Im almost afraid to open it, knowing I wont get anything done.

My house is a wreck, and my kids get home early today. Monday starts spring break (already!)..time to pop some ginseng and a redbull and get busy!

Thursday, March 5, 2009

Whew I havent updated in eons.

I will make this quick though because I spent all damn morning twittering.

My husband made me take Poisons 'talk dirty to me' off my caller ring tone because he states 'what if the school calls you'? Yeah ok, got me there.

I dont see how people can have a job and write in there blogs everyday. I dont work and still dont find the time. Yeah ok, I twitter alot, but I can pass by my computer and do that, or do it from my cell phone. Its almost like porn to go.


Ash is making a myspace music account so the world can hear his tunes..I will link that when he gets around to doing it.

Tifeni thinks we should pick her up on Sunday and bring her back by Friday so she can go out with Josh. I love how my kids think I should bow down and convey to their every whim.

The kids had their TAKS test this week. You know, that government mandated test, to see if our teachers are doing their jobs. No, they dont take into consideration learning disabilities and ADD, and all that other stuff. They simply say, 'do your best'. Fucked up thing? They have to pass it to graduate. If your not good at tests, or your learning disabled, you are shit out of luck. Can America be anymore communistic?

Dont answer that.

Ok, I have to go clean house and stuff.

Some guy asked me on twitter, 'so what do you do exactly'...apparently being a stay at home mom is a dying breed. Maybe we should be put on the extinction list?

Mom 2 Seven Bratz?

No, I'm not having twins.


This is my best friend and her family. Yes, these are all her children. Kylie, Kailey, Kelsey, Kevin, Keith, Kyle, Katy, and Kaleb.

Well, she has two out of control 16 yr olds, Kailey and Kelsey, that she cant seem to do anything with. She wants to send them to my house, because my house is very strict.
My 10 and 12 yr old boys have a 6pm bedtime, and my 14yr old girl and 16 yr old son have a 8pm bedtime.
My kids, especially my girl, don't go anywhere, and its very military around here at times. I think my friend needs a break, and maybe keeping the girls for awhile will make them see how good they have it at home.

Now, a little bit of background because I wouldn't just keep any of my friends kids. Me and Flora have been friends since we were 11. That's a 28 year old friendship. She was there when I had a couple of my kids, and I was there when she had a couple of hers. I was there when Kelsey, the said 'rotten teen' was born. Her and my son Ashton (they are 4 months apart) were raised together from infants. My oldest daughter (Tifeni) and her older boys (Kieth and Kyle) were raised together as well. Kieth and Tifeni even graduated together this past year.
I was pregnant for Hunter when she was pregnant for Katy, and I was the first one to hold her Katy when she was born.
So, you see...if it was just a casual friend, I probably wouldn't take on the responsibility, but its not..shes practically family. get my husband to agree to it.

Today is my oldest sons 16th birthday!

Happy Birthday!

Forrest Timethi Ashton Courtney. (I wish i had a scanner to add baby pics..he was such a pretty baby)

I hate my body.

A few years ago, and several years after I had my tubes clamped, I stated having the worst 'day before my period' cramps. Like a seriously bad lower back ache, and ovary pain. Once my period starts, it goes away, and it only lasts about a day.
No, I see no reason to go to the doctor, because I hate doctors. Im just saying, it sucks to be a woman every now and then...or at least every month.

I plan on starting a diet on Feb 2nd. (Not the first because thats my daughters birthday, and cake is involved). I would like to lose a bazillion pounds. Ok, I want to lose 100 pounds and be as thin as a crack whore...or a runway model...same thing.

This is me and my oldest taken last night. He likes to be a complete dork and act like he doesnt have any common sense. Im used to it. Weird thing is, he always has a girlfriend, so chicks must dig that about him.

Dumb but lol...

And this is for Cherlyn:

Photos of some of my kids, in December.

Maverick isnt in any of these because he refused to have his picture taken.

Friday, January 9, 2009

Oh, we had snow a few weeks ago. Yes, I live in south Texas. It didnt last though, but it was nice. Heres some pics!
