My Mother....

So I'm sure most of you are aware of the analog change over that has started to occur. And most of us in the 21st century haven't paid any attention to it b/c we all either have satellite or cable. Well my parents are one of the few that does not have any sort of cable and still run off the antenna in the attic (they don't even have a DVD player and probably wouldn't have a VCR if I didn't beg for it my sophomore yes people my sophomore year of high school) Anyways back to the point of this - this was the conversation that just took place between my mom and I on the phone.

me - ok mom brad just got home I'm going to let you go now I think we might watch a movie (just signed up for netflix - love it)

mom - oh your dad and I are watching blah blah - i have know idea what she said

me - oh ok

mom - you know we just don't get channel 9 anymore

me - well did you hook up that converter box

mom - yes

me - and you still don't get channel 9?? thinking....humm you should be able to scan for the channels. Does it have an instruction book?

mom - yes

me - did you read it?

mom - no, but it worked fine when the guy came and hooked it up....well I still have the attic antenna hooked so it should work its b/c we don't have that HD or whatever it is.

me - no mom thats why you have the box the are cutting off the signal to the attic antenna. It doesn't matter if its hooked up or not.

mom - long pause *crickets chirping* well I'll just go buy some rabbit ears

me - no mom thats not what I'm saying - antennas aren't going to work anymore thats why you have the box.

mom - oh...long pause...well hopefully the house will sell b/f June.

me - June?? Why whats June??

mom - well thats how long the channels are holding out for the switch.

me - ok mom I gotta go now.

I am still stilling here shaking my head as I blog about this .... what does she think will happen when she moves??? That the channels will come back?? She won't need the converter box??So I guess I'm going to the city in the next week or so to hook up her TV - oh and as a side note they only got one box and they have 2 TVs she said she she just moved it from one TV to the other. kills me this woman kills me.

And for my two loving cousins that read my blog (I know your out there) I would love to hear your response to this - you can leave a comment under anonymous and just sign you name or email me!!!

This is a must read for anyone who is interested in the history of the Holocaust. I myself am a big fan so when I came across this book on amazon it was a must buy. Auschwitz gives you a personal account of Dr. Miklos Nyiszlei a Jew who worked as a forensic doctor for Dr Josef Mengele in the crematoriums. Dr. Mengele is known as the "Angel of Death", the man responsible for killing millions of Jews and for performing experiments on thousand others. I have read a few other personal stories from survivors of the camps and this one told a story that I had never heard before. It turns out that those who worked in the crematorium lived a completely different life then those who who lived in the other parts of the camp.

I give this book 5 out of 5 bookmarks!

Feeling Flaky

So Cooper and Charlie both have dry flaky skin and since they are both black it quite noticeable. And if you don't know who the heck I'm talking about go here. Well today Casey got to go to PetsMart for his day of beauty which includes a bath, toe clippings, ear cleaning. While the other two get bathed at home b/c they have less hair and are SOOO...much easier to wash than Casey. So Brad and I were out and we took Cooper and Charlie to the dog park to play since Casey was gone today and they got so dirty!! So we dropped them off at home and ran around a bit, which included a stop at Petco for some new dog shampoo. We've been using oatmeal shampoo on them and they are REALLY flaky. So I found this shampoo called Feeling Flaky by Pet Head by TIGI who make Bed Head for peeps, which I myself am a fan of. Anyways I bathed them both when I got home and so far no flakes. Im sure it will take a few shampooings but they are super soft and smell great - it kinda had a grape scent to it. It was a bit pricey for dog shampoo $14.99 but it was only $2.00 more then the medicated one and smells way better!

You Are Peanut Butter Sandwiches / Do-si-dos

You are easy going and naturally happy. You don't need a lot to make you smile.

You genuinely care about people and are a great friend. You're always doing your best to make the world a better place.

Even though there isn't an immature bone in your body, you still are like a big kid sometimes.

Why make life complicated when the best parts are actually quite simple? You enjoy the small joys of life.

So everyone has a weakness for girl scout cookies and I came across this quiz and thought I would check it out, since its that time of year and all.

This description is the first one that is so ME! Everything about it is true! I only wish it was my favorite cookie the ones w/ caramel and coconut yummy!

If you wanna find out what cookie you are go here

Shut Up!!!....I'm Trying To Sleep

When it comes to mornings I usually don't do well right off the start. My idea of waking up is to wake up w/o an alarm and to silence from everyone. Well Brad loves to sing to me in the morning whether I'm awake yet or not and sometimes this will result in me saying some very hateful things just to get him to shut up. Well he's just as bad as me sometimes. For example last night Brad went to bed before me and so I when I went to go to bed I had put the dogs up and this is what transpired.

Brad"what are you doing?"

Me "um coming to bed" then I went to crawl into bed I accidentally touched his foot while I was trying to crawl into the bed.

Brad "STOP IT!!! STOP TOUCHING MY FOOT!!! What are you doing"
by this time I was already in bed and not touching him any longer

Me "sorry ..."
then we fought over the blanket and I decided to go sleep in the other room.

So today I was talking about last night and he doesn't remember it at all, he says he dose remember me coming to bed but not all the other stuff. Which I think is funny.... not sure why but I do :)

What Do You Carry??

So I've notice a few other bloggers doing this blog and I thought I would too...why?

Because I'm the wannabe.

Here are the rules:
1. Post a picture of whatever bag you are carrying. No, you can't go into your closet and pull out your favorite purse! We want to know what you carried today or the last time you left the house.

2. List how much it cost. And this is not to judge. This is for entertainment purposes only. So s
pill it. And if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, we’d love to hear it.

3. Tag some chicks. And link back to this post so people know why the heck you’re showing everyone your bag.

So this is my purse a black Coach bag my friend Hailey gave me. Her dad went overseas to a place where they are cheaper (don't know where he went) and she knew my love for Coach so she had him bring me back one. I never thought I would carry a purse this big and now that I do I can't get out of it. I've had it for almost a year and I LOVE IT!

The things I carry (not including Charlie who wouldn't get out of the picture)

From top to bottom left to right

my Coach wristlet that Brad's mom gave me for my (I use it as my wallet), garage opener, two things to clean my glasses w/, 2 used gift cards (I haven't cleaned it in a bit) and some receipts for walmart and target, my glasses case, my collection of pens (I'm kinda weird about my pens just ask my co.workers), business card for my hair girl, cell phone, my current book I'm reading, spray hand sanitizer, hair band, lip gloss collection, eye drops, nail clippers, date book, and a note that my friend Birdie put in my purse about going to yoga.

Now you know what I tote around I would like to see yours. I'm suppose to tag some peeps but I figure if you wanna blog about it go for it.

Tonight at work we had two very young parents come in (mom 18, dad 19) w/ their baby boy that was only 1month and 22days old for arm pain/injury. After the doctor and nurse looked at him they suspected abuse. Yes abuse to a baby that is barely 2 months old. They took the baby to x.ray and found out that he had a broken humerus (the top bone in your arm) and a spiral fx on his lower arm on the radius and ulna. Yep his little tiny arm was broken in 3 places!!! And they said by looking at the x-ray that it appears the fractures happened at two different times b/c the angle of the break on the humerus was in opposite direction of the fracture on the bottom of his arm. They then looked at an x-ray of his other arm and there was an old fracture on that arm as well - if thats even possible to have an old fracure on a 1month and 22day old baby.

So baby was taken away, police, dective, and social services were called. Mom and dad got escorted out by Norman PD w/ their empty baby carrier and were not allowed to see their baby. Baby was transferred to Children's Hospital after lots of tender loving attention from the ER staff. They gave him 2 bottles of formula, got him clothes from the nursey and a little blue hat and a new blanky. They had to splint the arm w/ the 3 fx and it was so sad b/c he had this little chicken wing.

I just pray that this baby goes to a good foster home and is not returned to the parents b/c there is NO reason for this to happen.

Catching the Crud

I think I'm in the process of catching the crud....I've sneezed like 5 times today, 3 of them in the last hour or so. I never sneeze unless I'm getting sick - blah. I thought it was just a sinus thing b/c I slept w/ the windows open the other night but now I don't know. Ahhhh.... time to load up on the vitamin C!

F*** My Life

This is a great website happened to come across a blog that had a post about this site where people post why their life is so crappy and then it appears you can vote on if they deserved it or not.

Here are a few examples

Today, my mother and I got into a huge fight about me being a lesbian. It ended with me saying "Fuck you!" to which she responded: "I bet you'd probably like to." FML

Today, my husband found the box my morning after pill came in. He had a vasectomy 10 years ago. FML

** this one actually made me laugh out loud**
Today, I drove my girlfriend home around 11 to her garage where we start to have sex. When she comes to climax she slips and hits her head. Her parents heard the crash and came down, we were both still naked and she was unconscious. FML

Today, I decided to send my boyfriend a pic text of me naked. I accidently sent it to my dad and got a text back saying "You definitely take after your mom". FML

Just thought I'd share!

So I'm sure most of you bloggers have stumbled across the alphabet game thats going around. Basically you get a letter from another blogger and then you list your top 10 items starting with that letter. Snappy (The Lopez Family) was kind enough to give me the letter "M" so here is my list in no particular order.

Money, money, money.....MONEY

Nothing makes you feel better then knowing you can have the freedom of a load of cash in your pocket to do whatever you please. However I tend to find that when I go shopping looking to actually spend I can't find anything I want to buy. Yet if I go when I'm broke I walk out with a list about a mile long...strange.


As I've mentioned before I love death, MURDER, kill shows. I don't know why I just do. In fact I have ID. (Investigative Discovery) on in the background right now and they are talking about a guy who had a box of noses under his how does that not peak your interest.


I can't help it! It's a slight addiction. I love looking into peoples lives and all their pictures. I hate it when people put their pages on private. I fill out the stupid surveys when I'm bored and change my layout on a regular basis. And everyone that is my friend is someone I actually know in real life other than about a handful of famous music peeps.

Matthew McConaughey

Can you say mmm.... So hot!! Thats all I got nothing else we will just take a moment of silence to bask in his beauty.

Dear Matthew, I know that you are different and do weird work outs on the beach but I want you to know that my love for you will never go away.

Mars candy bars

Probably my favorite candy bar ever!!! Even though they are kinda hard to find sometimes.


I love getting sucked into good movies. Sometimes I wish they didn't end. However the ending is a big deal for me - I hate it when they just stop...and your left there like what the ......

I think the medical world is my passion. I have bookmarked on my toolbar. There is just so much to learn and its an ever changing environment.


I know most of the world hates Mondays because it is when the typical work week starts all over again. BUT for me and my girls who do not work typical work jobs Mondays are our get together days. I'm actually more likely to hang out with my gals on a Monday then a Friday. Love you girls!!


Pasta in general I don't care the size or the shape give it to me all!! It has got to be my all time favorite dish. I've never met a pasta I didn't like.


Music is awesome!! Especially when you find that one song that fits whatever is going on in your life at that time... I love to jam out in my house when I'm home alone and dance around with my dogs.

So there are my 10 M's I hope you enjoyed and if your interested in a letter let me know I'll be happy to give you one :)

Girlie Girl

If you know me at all I am the kind of girl that kicks back in a t.shirt, jeans and converse. I've never been the girl that goes all out on myself on a daily basis. I do enjoying dressing up every now and then from time to time. And I use to do it a bit more back in my City Walk days. But now I find it stressful. First off I don't have any dressy clothes. I have one pair of nice heels (which I noticed are going to need to be replaced soon) and I've never been one to wear alot of make-up.

Well yesterday was Brad's granny's 75th birthday party and I needed to look nice. You know jeans a nice shirt and heels. Well I went to the mall and looked around and I couldn't find anything that fit the picture that was in my head. And mind you Brad's sister is a total girlie girl. Heels everyday, make-up and she knows how to accessorize, I on the other hand can not. And girls you know how it is you have to not compete but well I can't think of a better word. Its not that I feel threatened but you know you just don't wanna be the frumpy one - does that makes sense? I think its an inner girl thing. ANYWAYS.... so I ended up going to target and finding a shirt I had my eye on and I get it - even though its not what I remembered it looking like - but I had no choice time was ticking down I had to get home and start getting ready. I find these kind of events to be VERY stressful and I go through this every holiday or little family event that we attend. And the last couple of times I just didn't care and sported my converse and jeans. So yesterday Brad's mom even said how I looked really nice and how that I'm usually a tomboy. Which I am, always have been. I was the girl in the trees, riding bikes in the creek, picking up frogs and turtles and caterpillars as a child growing up. My mother does not wear make-up so I never had anyone teach me I had to learn out of Seventeen and YM magazines on how to apply eye shadow.

So Here is me trying to be a girlie girl...

Just A Bunch of Nothingness

Take the Pain Away
So today and yesterday I must say have been pretty crappy. I didn't feel good yesterday and spent most of the day in bed which then lead to a migraine. We had tickets to the OU/A&M basketball game which I ended up just giving to a friend b/c I felt so shitty. I feel bad b/c I guess it was a pretty good game from what I hear...which I wouldn't know I was in bed by 8:30. I tried going into work today, made it there but only stayed 16 min to be exact - my left eyeball felt as though it was going to explode out of my head so I was lucky enough to get to go home - which I slept again until about 6:30 tonight and finally woke up w/o as much pain in my I hope I can just sleep tonight.

Money Woes
I just got paid today and my money is already gone...don't you hate it when that happens! Which I'm a bit sad about but you know that is life and the bills have to be paid.

I sit here wondering whats wrong w/ my dogs b/c not only have they slept all day w/ me but they have also been sleeping all night. Even Charlie he has not asked to play w/ his ball all night!! I guess they are just as lazy as their mama.

Smell the Air
I don't know if any of you got out today or even this evening but the weather here is freaking awesome. I ran to the store around 7 and the air felt so good!! I love just breathing it in its so refreshing. I heard that we had our last cold day for the season on Wed. Which I hope it true b/c I am so ready for spring!!! And its suppose to thunderstorm on Mon which will be awesome as long as there are no tornados.

Yankee Love
I love yankee candles and I'm currently burning my favor sent (good morning) oh its such a wonderful smell!! I highly suggest it to anyone who like candles. I was thinking about investing in a Tyler candle next b.c I've almost burn through this one but I just love it so much I may just have to get another.

I'm Out
Well I'm off to sleeps...wish me luck - maybe I'll have something more interesting to blog about later :)

If I Am Missing or Dead

So I found this book on the Barnes & Noble bargain rack the other day and read it in about 2 1/2 days. I was completely sucked in from the start. It is a true story about how the author deals w/ her struggles w/ men through out her life only to have her sister killed by an abusive lover in the end. Honestly this book was not what I expected. I was drawn to it b/c of the title thinking that it would be more of a murder mystery. Even the inside cover is directed more towards the murder of her sister then the story of her life.

I did think it was a good book!!

The author takes you through her life from childhood to her adult years growing up in a family of 4 girls & 1 boy. The strain that her father puts on her and the family along w/ the physical and mental abuse that she suffered w/ most of her relationships w/ the men in her life.

I would suggest this book!!
I give it 3.5 out of 5 bookmarks
