I’m sorry about not keeping things going here.  Just life in general gets very busy for me and usually I have nothing really to really write about. 🙂

Well here’s a few things:

My health is still the same and I’m staying healthy to the best of my ability. My asthma is in good control and my protime or NRI is doing great and the diabetes is the only thing being stubborn even though I’ve lost weight, it just doesn’t want to give up it’s foot hold, but you know, I’m still walking and breathing and eventually the diabetes will give up it’s hold, I just have to keep doing whatever it is I’m doing to help get it there.

My sister finally got her book out there and has had a number of her books bought, and she has even been asked to write the rest of her life story by a few people that have bought her book :).  I hope she does, cause her life is very interesting compared to mine :), but just to give a heads up, if anyone goes to Amazon.com and looks up “Don’t Cry Broken Angel” be prepared for some rather graphic reading and it’s all true.

We bought our godsons/nephews their own xbox one for Christmas this year with a some games so that when I’m on the xbox one and on one of those games, then they can join me in play.

I also saved up over $1000 to build myself a brand new system, I’ve named it Phoenix and have retired my old machine, Kaliska, which will be used for a new and better updated server for our family minecraft, in hopes that it will be less laggy then what we have for that right now since Delenn is used as more of a mail server for my fiance’s comcast mail gathering and a few other things.

Erbo (Eric) and I have been together for 7 years and are still going strong.  We still have minor political arguments and a few other arguments, but you know; lol, that’s just us.  We are still very much in love and very happy with each other :).  We take care of each other and I am slowly getting back into cooking home meals from time to time so we don’t always have to bring home take out.

Penny, our little kitty, is doing fine and still healthy and well loved and she returns the love 10 fold.  She’s a wonderful and very loving pet, and we still think of her as our child, though she is a black kitty with a touch of white on her belly and chest and has four legs and meows and purrs instead of talking back or talking :).

My dad is doing great over in Illinois and we keep in contact as much as possible :).  I’ll most likely soon enough be saving up to get him a new computer that he can pick up at Best Buy and what not.  The one he has, had finally given up the ghost, but then he won’t get it until his birthday come July.  I’m putting money aside right now to help pay off the card that Erbo used to get the boys their Christmas presents.  Hopefully that won’t be to long :).

My mom and step-dad are doing well as well.  They are both healthy and my step-dad still drives those 18 wheelers.  Mom has semi-retired from driving the big trucks cause of some of her health issues, but other then that they are both doing well.

I had a shock last year just before Christmas.  I ended up getting a Christmas card from my brother and his girlfriend and her family for Christmas.  I was like oh my really.  It’s about time my brother found someone who can put up with his shit and keep him in line :).  Don’t get me wrong, I love my brother to bits, but it’s best that we stay apart, but it’s nice to hear from him from time to time cause at least then I know he’s doing fine.  As for his health, I have no clue, but I hope it has improved since I last seen him a few years back when Eric and I went to Illinois to visit dad for his birthday.  We also went and seen mom and my step-dad and a few other family members, including my Aunt in Arkansas.

As for the rest of my time so far, it’s been playing minecraft, trying to continue to write books, playing on the xbox and on Second Life.  Sadly my creative juices are kind of blocked right now and it’s hard for me to try to write or build things, so I play on the xbox and facebook and listen to my music in hopes that some day soon enough I’ll be able to get back to the writing and being creative again, but until then I’ll do what ever I can do to have fun and such.

Yeah this is one of those days.  I seriously hate being awake this damn early.  I just want more sleep.

These days are days that you have to make sure you are up to either catch a delivery or as today be up because chimney sweeps are coming into the apartment to clean your chimney because the apartment complex has decided to get the chimneys clean after a winter use.  This is like the first time that I’ve been here, in almost 5 years, that they have done this.

The chimney sweeps, will be doing building 1 thru 5 today from 9 to 5, so I don’t know when they’ll be showing up here, but when they do I’ll have to put the cat up in the bedroom or a bathroom or the computer room just to keep her out from under feet.

Anyways, I just want more sleep. *sighs*

Wow big lottery jackpots bring out the stupid people who spend all their damn money on a shit load of tickets instead of on what’s necessary in life.

I guess GREED is well and strong in this world today, especially here in the great USA.

I don’t brag about buying a shit load of tickets and post pictures and shit like that on Facebook.  That’s just STUPID!

At least I know where my happiness lies, and it lies with the love of myself, my family and those of friends who ACTUALLY CARE, not those who PRETEND to CARE.  I also know my happiness is in knowing that God loves me no matter what.

MONEY doesn’t make anyone REALLY happy just GREEDY and STUPID.  I’m happy with what my man can get me and all but we also don’t splurge every last cent we have on buying a shit load of lottery tickets, that if not winning tickets become more litter for the garbage and the world.  You people are really stupid thinking that all those tickets might be lucky when before you know it you’ll get a kick in the ass cause guess what YOU DID NOT WIN!

You could have spent that money on something else that would be more important, like food or even something for your pets or you children, or even helping out a family member, but NOOOO you’d rather spend it on litter which is what non-winning tickets turn into.  Nothing but trash.

Man I hope all you silly people out there fall flat on your ass when you LOSE cause it’s going to be very hard for ANYONE to win, but keep spending your money frivolously, cause that’s all you are doing, you are no better then the government who spends our own money that we deserve and need on other frivolous shit.  Have fun and I hope the ground isn’t too hard on your ass when you fall to the ground and blow a fit for not winning a stupid lottery jackpot, but if it is hard when you hit, tough shit you deserve it.

That’s all I have to say to you stupid people out there.

Well with all the wind yesterday that we had here and the gusts were up in the 30s or so, a 4 acre burn area quickly turned into a 44 acre burn within an hour, and now it’s over 4000 acres of land on fire. Man it’s going to be a bad year, this year for Colorado in that area.  We are so dry from the very little snow and rain over the winter it’s not funny.  Hopefully we won’t have to worry about water restrictions going up this summer.  That would seriously suck.

Well thankfully today the wind is barely blowing and they were able to call in fire air support to start dumping water on the fire, so hopefully it will soon be under control.  Also hopefully they will be able to get the fire retardant out there to help get this fire under control as well.

One who has come from Arkansas definitely understands fire hazards and warnings out there, cause Arkansas was basically nothing but pine trees from one side to the other, hence one of the reasons that the state is also known as the Natural State cause of all those forests and more out there.  I was living in the Oauchita Mountain foot hills back in them days in a trailer park along Hwy 7 leading towards Hot Springs.  Talk about nothing but trees and hills around with few streams rambling through.  When a fire hit our home was always in danger of being taken over by flames, but thankfully during the times I lived there we never had one except up on West Mountain that went down the hill towards the backyards of the homes that were in Hot Springs, so I sympathize with those people that have lost their homes to wild fires and the likes.

I hope we do not lose lives with these fires and God be with the fire fighters and other authority figures out there dealing with the massive wild fire.  There is some good that comes from this fire, and that is the dead pine trees that the pine beetles have killed off and will be taken care of, but the loss of life and homes and memories isn’t.

Well today a lot of things have been happening, one of those things has been happening for a while now.  It seems the Bronco’s have signed on Peyton Manning as their new QB, which means from what I’ve heard that they will be trading Tim Tebow.  This kind of sucks, but I guess is kind of understanding, but still it sucks.  Tebow is a great QB, and I hope if he is being traded that he’ll be going home to Florida.  Apparently he misses his home and the south and Florida.  I hope and pray that he makes it back to Florida where he can once again be happy and be around his roots and his family.  Best of luck and prayers to you Tim Tebow! You will most definitely be missed here in Denver if you do head back home to Florida to one of the teams there.  Hope the Jaguars get you since that seems to be closer to your heart and soul.  God be with you.

Now on to other things :).

Spring is definitely here but some of Colorado is still receiving some snow, but thankfully not us here in Denver.  The sky is bright blue and the sun is bright and warm, sadly though the temp only hit 49 degrees here, but still it’s the typical weather for a Colorado spring! It is so nice to live up here in Denver, CO and I enjoy all of it!  Soon enough we will be hopefully driving up into the mountains to enjoy the wonderful spring weather and watching as the world comes awake from the deep slumber of Old Man Winter! Our weather though will be back up in the 60s and 70s before to long again. 🙂

Another thing that comes with spring though is the pollen that is going rabid around here right now.  The tree pollen is very HIGH and Denver has been on High Pollen Alert for over a week now.  So far I’ve not had any hard effects of Allergies hit me, but I know they are just around the corner.  Thankfully I’ve got Allegra, Sudafed and Zyrtec, and NO I do not mix the allergy pills.  It depends on the state of my sinuses and how I’m feeling which one I will take.  I do know that once I start being hit hard by the pollen and allergies, that I will most likely stick to my 24 hour stuff and not the lower hour stuff.  I only take any of my pills when I absolutely need them and that hasn’t been often yet.

I love spring time but I do not like allergy season that comes with it, but I will suffer through it if I need to.  I thankfully don’t break out in a rash like some people do and the likes.  My allergies ain’t that serious, and I’m thankful I’m up here in Colorado instead of in Arkansas now.  Man my allergies were horrible down there in Arkansas cause there are thousands of pine trees around and not that many here in Colorado.  The pine tree is after all the state tree down there in Arkansas while the dog wood is the state blossom, the diamond the state jewel and the mockingbird the state bird.  The pine tree pollen was murderous on my sinuses and everything while I was living there, I couldn’t even open up the darned windows or door without pollen being blown in and we had to start using the air conditioners earlier then ever down there cause of not only the pollen but the sticky icky humidity.

Let me tell you how bad that pollen was or is, if you have a car and haven’t driven it or washed it yet, when the pine trees pollinated there could be inches of yellow green pollen on the surface, let along that is what we were breathing in down there during the season and when we coughed it up it was a very ugly color and we had to take showers every day just to get the pollen off us, let alone cool down from the humidity.  Which is why I’m not  sad about missing the south, especially Arkansas.  It’s a beautiful place to live, but you have a lot you have to deal with down there during any time of the year from severe weather to humidity and pollen and the likes to ice storms and heat waves.

I’m very happy to live in Colorado, there is hardly if NO humidity here, and the pollen isn’t that bad here, except maybe up in the mountains where all the Ash trees and other trees are at, but still it’s beautiful and breathtaking here in Colorado. I might eventually post some old photos that I made over the years to the posts here in the near future just to show the beauty of the place.  From spring to winter.  Sadly the only summer time pics I might be able to post would be something dealing with fireworks and the likes, but until I’m ready to start doing that, well ya’ll will just have to be satisfied with what I type here. LOL :). Now onto other news :).

Recently there was a major wild grass fire in Eastern Colorado around Yuma.  Apparently some very old homes lived in for generations were caught in the fire and burned down.  Years and memories of their lives gone in a puff of smoke.  We get some powerful winds here and when they start gusting like they do it can get very deadly here.  With the grass still brittle from winter and not yet lush enough for spring everything around here is tinder waiting for one little spark or cigarette to land on it, and when it happens combustion insews and the fire starts eating everything in sight.  Thankfully they were able to contain the fire and get it out, but there were a few firefighters that were injured in the process, and thank God they weren’t any worse then they were and not killed in the flames.  I send my prayers out to those who lost everything and hope that they can recover and make a go at it again. Next news from my end :).

My man and I watched the first show of season 14 Dancing With The Stars last night and man there are some good competition in it this year with some actual STARS involved.  All the ones we watched except for one, will definitely be in the running for that Cheesy Mirror Ball Trophy, so far I’ve got at least 4 couples I’m routing for, but that will change as the season goes on. Best of luck to all couples in Season 14 of Dancing With The Stars! Next on my list :).

Our “cousin” Rikki has adopted a beautiful grey and white kitty who is around 5 months old.  She’s beautiful and adorable.  According to Rikki, Cloud (that’s her cats name), finally came out from under the bed to explore some and eat some.  Rikki also says that Cloud is very talkative and that she and Cloud do converse with each other :).  I don’t know the breed, but she is very beautiful.  Oh don’t take me wrong, our own cat Penny is very special and beautiful to us as well.  We just love animals, especially the cats and dogs.

My man has had his share of exotic pets, as he posted once before on his blog about, but mostly my pets dealt with cats and dogs.  I had dogs my entire life until 1997, then I got me a cat, but we still had dogs as well.  The dogs were my dads of course and mine as well, but they were mostly dads.  We still help my dad out in that area if he needs food for them.  I’ll be meeting more of the extended woof woof family that my dad has gotten since living in Illinois.  I’ll be hopefully seeing him this summer with a number of other family members, including some of my fiancee’s family members.  I hope this summer will be good for us to be able to do this.  I miss my family and it’s been like 2 or 3 years now since I last saw them. Now onto the final news.

My “sister” Naja went to her cardiac doctor the other day, and has now got clearance to be able to get the hysterectomy she seriously needs right now.  I will keep my prayers with her and her family as she goes through each step to get that done and send my love their way.  Love you all!

Sorry about that everyone.  Um lol.  My man decided to read my post and discovered some words that needed to be fixed, so I had to delete the entire post and replace it with a more up to date with correct words in the post! Oh well lol! 🙂 It’s done and I guess from here on out I need to do the post on notepad or notebook to make sure I put the correct words in there before I post from here on out :). LOL.

Ok well for now I think I need to close out this very long winded post that I’ve just done. LOL! 🙂 Hope everyone enjoys the things I’ve posted, and I hope your seasons and weather where you live are treating you well.  God bless everyone!

Ok so now I’m frustrated to the point of crying right now.  Penny has been misbehaving today and she finally made me blow my gasket.  No I didn’t hurt her or anything, but she went and knocked off one of the big speakers in the master bedroom.

Now lets hope she learns not to do that again.  I just hope that my man will be in a good mood to deal with Hurricane Penny.  I’ve had to shut off the master bedroom to keep her out of it, now lets hope her destructive hyper active mood doesn’t wind up destroying our computer network.  I just don’t know what the hell has gotten into her this morning and I don’t even want to find out.  She’s been batting at things again and I haven’t even run my electric razor for almost a week.

I probably have everyone in the apartment building wondering what the hell that was with me yelling at her and the patio door wide open.

God give me strength to get over what ever the hell has frustrated me today.  I slept at least 8 hours yet how the hell can I be over tired again.

Maybe it was all the drama happening over xbox last night, so I’ll be avoiding it for a little while.  I SERIOUSLY HATE DRAMA.

Hell it’s also probably my horrible mood swings because I’ll be starting soon and the PMS is really going to be bad this month.  Maybe even my cycle.  Hell I don’t know any more.

I SERIOUSLY hate being like this.  I’m usually never like this PERIOD, but for some reason it’s like right there on the edge of blowing up. *sighs*

As for the drama on XBOX last night, lets just say I will not pick friends over other friends.  One friend says he doesn’t like this group cause of something they do, yet when that group I play with a few of them from that group doesn’t.  I don’t know what the hell they did to each other, but seriously folks please stop dragging me into the middle of the drama.  I like everyone I play with on there, but damn it I won’t choose over one or the other but if you don’t want to be my friend cause I’m friends with another person that you don’t like get over it ok and you can easily remove me from your list and it won’t be no skin off my nose.

I get on xbox to RELAX and have FUN not to be mean and the likes.  XBOX IS JUST A GAME CONSOLE WITH GAMES STOP TAKING THE SHIT SO DAMN SERIOUSLY! IT’S A GAME FOR FUCK SAKE GET OVER IT!!!!!!!

Anyways, I might have more to deal with later but honestly I don’t give a fuck about it and if people find my blog, especially this one bad cause of the cuss words I DO NOT CARE.  I have a right to type what I want and this is adult language in so many blogs out there it shouldn’t be no issue to ANYONE.  Free speech after all! God Bless America for that!

Ok I KNOW there are a lot of people out there with very refined taste in music, but honestly, I can NOT stand opera.

Opera to some is pure sweet music, but to me it sounds like a bunch of yallowing cats.  Now the music without the singers is WONDERFUL but when you add in the singers my poor ears will bleed.

Yes lots of people will be like, no it’s not, but then for a country girl who isn’t rich and has a simple life all her life says yes opera sucks!

I enjoy music like everyone else, all but opera and some of the rap out there just ain’t so great.

I enjoy jazz, blues, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and some of the 90s and today music.  I also love country, rock, big band, classical and more, but I will NEVER enjoy Opera unless it’s just the symphony or Orchestra playing, but I won’t listen if they throw in the screaming and yallowing cats.  They sound like they are in heat, seriously, I’ve had a cat that wasn’t fixed, I know what it’s like, I’ve heard tom cats getting into fights and I’ve heard big cats.  That’s what those singers sound like to me, especially if they aren’t singing in English.  If it was English maybe I’d like it cause I’d probably try to understand it, but still NO THANKS.

The only time I truly hear the opera is on Saturdays on the Classic station I enjoy listening to and going to sleep to, but do you know what it’s like to be woke from a solid sleep by a cat fight and the likes! I do and I don’t like it. LOL

Anyways that’s my say on things dealing with Opera.  🙂
