Happy Birthday Jariel and a few pics of Ms. Ray-Ray

I am so tired..... I decided to help a friend out and babysit her son for 4 hours every morning from 8-12. He is a HANDFUL YALL let me tell you. He is so busy. He's 4. She pays me well, but I earn every penny kwim? I need to get in bed earlier and then I will be alright. LOL

We had a great weekend. Friday was Jariel's birthday we went to Hamada House of Japan and ate ourselves into a coma. I love their food. We took him shopping for a brand new trick bike and he's in seven heaven.....LOL

Saturday, we went to a our neighbors relatives housewarming. It was really nice. We ate well. Played cards, I had to open up a can of whoop ass on the spades table. Dh and I were the reigning champions.....some how, no one ever seems to beat us. WE'RE GOOD! LOL

Sunday, we chilled, I cooked a huge dinner, POT ROAST, BAKED MACARONI AND CHEESE, SPECKLED BUTTER BEANS WITH HAMHOCKS, and CORN BREAD. We watched television and played a little bean bags, just chilled, nothing major.

Today, nothing big planned. Just cleaning my closet. Getting things in order...

Today's challenge on twopeas, was what do you do when you are stressed?

When I am stressed, I put on pot of hot water, have some tea, take a steam bath, and meditate. I try not to let myself get too stressed, but when the moment arrives, it's nothing hot tea and ahot bath won't cure. What are your destressing methods???

They are in my bed watching Bring it on, all or nothing. Which is a really good movies. I love cheerleading movies anyways.....soooo.

Well, Bee had a great time at Homecoming. He stayed the nignt at his best friend Nic's house. I got go get him soon, because we are going to my parents house today. Jaree's going to be super happy, because she gets to hang out with Mia and Alyssa. Her fav buds at my mom's. Jariel will probably go to the skate park and bee will just talk on the phone the entire time.

It has really been cool around here lately. Yesterday night it dropped down to 42 degrees. I am looking forward to fall, love the 70 degree weather, just throw on some fleece and keep it rolling.

I have already started buying fleece blankets and hoodies, and wool socks to wear around the house, to save on those heating costs.....LOL

Well, I gotta go and get these kids ready, stay tunned for Bee's homecomming pics....He went with his boys, because his girlfriend Katie is out of town, and she wasn't trying to hear about him going with another girl, can you blame her....LOL

Yesterday, the kids and I had a blast. We had to go pick up mh oldest son from his friend Nic's house and all the way there, they kept on yelling out the window at guys and saying "Hey baaaaaby!!!"" That was funny! One guy got scared! It was so funny. We even yelled it at Bee and Nic!!! They cracked up. Then I came home with my God daughter Marissa and we stayed up last singing songs, badly I might add. Then we went to go pick up my air matress from my cousin Pam's house and then we went to Baskin Robbins.....its 24 hours ya know.....I didn't get to sleep until 4 am and boy does 6am come around really fast. I just had to pray Jaree and jariel put their clothes on right and brushed their teeth, because I layed down until 7:20, drove Bee to school and his homecoming is this week. He left his money for homecoming and guess what I had to drive back to school and give it to him. But, not before I took a power nap, woke up NOON, lol and took him his money. I am so sleepy guys!

But my house is a mess and I need to get it in order. That is my plan today!!! It's a dusty mess. But I will take care of that today and I will wash my walls and all my floors. I have been slipping lately and now it's catching up to me.

this weekend we are going to a baby shower and just relaxing, nothing big. I will be taking tons of pics of Bee's homecoming...stay tuned!!!!

What is the world coming too?

By now I am sure everyone has heard about the young AA lady who was kidnapped, raped and tortured by 6 males and females.

I am totally perplexed and disenchanted after reading that the DA has to figure out if it was A HATE CRIME. Duh! What the hell do they think it was. Everytime the stabbed her, they called her the N-WORD, and one of the ladies even went as far as to say, we are doing this to you because of what you are......come on now. Then they get a 100,000 bond. WTF? They were harder on Vick on torturing some damned dogs, and here it is a HUMAN BEING, being tortured and they have TO FIGURE OUT, if it was a hate crime. Just proves we still live in a very RACIST world. I am sooooo upset about this. I wished I made the laws, because whatever you do to someone else, the same should be done to you, and then we will see how much crime we would have.

Here is the story:
Deputies Say Woman Tortured, 6 Charged

LOGAN, W.Va. (AP) — A woman who authorities said was sexually abused, beaten and stabbed while held captive for at least a week was repeatedly called a racial slur during the attacks, the victim's mother said.

Six people, all white, including a mother and son and a mother and daughter, have been arrested in connection with the alleged abduction of the 23-year-old black woman, sheriff's officials said Monday.


Authorities were still looking for two people they believe drove the woman to the home where she was abused, said Logan County Chief Deputy V.K. Dingess.

The FBI, which was asked by the sheriff's department to aid in the investigation, will look into whether a hate crime occurred.

The woman's abductors called her the N-word "every time they stabbed her," the woman's mother told The Charleston Gazette for a story published Tuesday.

The woman underwent surgery for leg wounds, Dingess told the paper.

Deputies found the woman Saturday after going to the home in Big Creek, about 35 miles southwest of Charleston, to investigate an anonymous tip.

One of the suspects, Frankie Brewster, was sitting on the front porch and told deputies she was alone, but moments later the woman limped toward the door, her arms outstretched, saying, "Help me," the sheriff's department said in a news release.

Besides being sexually assaulted, the woman had been stabbed four times in the left leg and beaten, Logan County sheriff's Sgt. Sonya Porter said. Her eyes were black and blue. The wounds were inflicted at least a week ago, deputies said.

During her capture, the woman was forced to eat rat and dog feces and drink from the toilet, according to the criminal complaint filed in magistrate court. She also had been choked with a cable cord and her hair was cut, it alleges.

"The things that were done to this woman are just indescribable," Porter said.

One of those arrested, Karen Burton, is accused of cutting the woman's ankle with a knife. She used the N-word in telling the woman she was victimized because she is black, according to the criminal complaint.

Deputies say the woman was also doused with hot water while being sexually assaulted.

"She wakes up in the middle of the night screaming, 'Mommy,'" the mother told the paper. "What's really bad is that we don't know everything they did to her. She is crying all the time."

The Associated Press normally does not name victims of suspected sex crimes, and is not identifying the mother to protect the identity of her daughter.

The six suspects were arrested Saturday and Sunday. Deputies were still trying to determine whether the woman knew her assailants, Porter said.

Brewster, the 49-year-old who owns the home where the alleged attacks occurred, is charged with kidnapping, sexual assault, malicious wounding and giving false information during a felony investigation.

Her son, Bobby R. Brewster, 24, also of Big Creek, is charged with kidnapping, sexual assault, malicious wounding and assault during the commission of a felony.

Burton, 46, of Chapmanville, is charged with malicious wounding, battery and assault during the commission of a felony.

Her daughter Alisha Burton, 23, of Chapmanville, and George A. Messer, 27, of Chapmanville, are charged with assault during the commission of a felony and battery.

Danny J. Combs, 20, of Harts, is charged with sexual assault and malicious wounding.

All six were held Monday in lieu of $100,000 bond each, and all have asked for court-appointed attorneys.

Where were you on September 11, 2001 when ...

the first plane hit the Twin Towers???? Well, I was 25 years old and I was at
Ceda with my cousin Pam. I remember watching Good Morning America, when they were talking about the first tower, then all of a sudden the second plane hit.....I remember saying oh my God, are we under attack? I called my mom and told her to turn on the news, and she said "Girl, somebody must have went to sleep at the control towers, because two planes just crashed into the Eiffel Towers? I remember thinking "what channel is she watching?", and she immediately corrected herself and said the "Twin Towers". I remember laughing and going to my mom's for coffee. No sooner did I get to my mom's did the kids school call and I had to pick them up from School because the school was on high alert and dismised all students. Thanks God, I only lived 15 minutes from my mom's. I remember going back to my mom's and explaining what was going on to a kingegartner and a 4th grader. I remember my son saying "God, why do they hate us?".

I remember my mom and I watching and screaming as the first tower collapsed......I remember bawling my eyes out and then the second tower fell, I was in shock. I couldn't believe it. Then we got new about the pentagon and the plain that went down. We watched MSNBC all night long. It was crazy!

It's hard to believe that was 6 years ago, because I remember it like it was yesterday!!!

One thing that changed that day was my ILLUSION OF SAFETY. I never thought in a million years that America would be attacked on their own soil. Never! That day, changed that illusion real fast.
Where were you when we were attacked? What has changed since then?

The Good and the bad....

I will give you the good first. For the most part, I had a GREAT WEEKEND! On Friday we all went to Red Lobster to celebrate my nephew Plukes going away to Las Vegas. We had a great time! Good, Good, food! Then we went out to Meeks for drinks. Well, we had to cut everything short, when we get a call around 1am......I will get back to that later, because I am giving you the good right now.

Saturday, was a busy, busy day. I got up and went to Wal-mart and got my gifts for my sil's baby shower. Spent way too much money. YOu know they make too many cute things for baby girls...LOL I came home showered and layed my clothes out. Took the kids out to Country Club Hills fest. They had a blast. We got funnel cake and home made icecream. Was tooooooo good. The kids rode horses, got their faces painted, jumped in the balloon float, and road the train. We left, I came home and immediately got in my clothes, put my make up on and headed to the baby shower. The baby shower was really nice, my sil doesn't need anything. She got tons.

After, the shower, I was supposed to go to my cousins birthday party, but what happened was?.....LOL I told myself I would take a quick power nap and when I woke up the birds were chirping...LOL

Onto Sunday, we took the kids downtown to Johnny Rockets, and then later that evening we went to the park. Kind of a lazy day!

Well, now it's time to give you bad. You know that phone call I got at 1am, it was from my nephew Marion. Turns out that my son was JUMPED, at a carnival, both him and his best friend, by 20-25 guys. Thank God, he was not hurt. My children have taken Karate since they were little tikes and he defended his self well. He ended up with a small lump on the side of his head. Nic was not so lucky, he ended up being struck in the head with something and ended up getting 5 staples in his head. I was PISSED! So was Baptiste. I hurried over to Worth Police Department because a mom has to see for herself. He told me wasn't hurt, the police told me wasn't hurt, but I couldn't get their fast enough. The kids were trying to tell me how everyone that ran up on Bee got drop kicked or knocked out, didn't care to hear any of that nonsense, just wanted to see my baby. After I looked him over thoroughly, I blasted him for not calling me...I was so angry. But that wasn't even the tip of the iceberg! The prejudice in this world never ceases to amaze me, Worth is predominatley white town. My son was the only black kid involved.... Everyone else was either hispanic or white. Why did the police officer that handled the case, try to turn everything on Bee! He comes out and says that I heard you are the instigator of this whole thing, telling these kids (who are mind you ages 15-19 and bee is 14) you were going to come to Worth and blow it and shouting your gang stuff Pope, pope, this and Pope that, I said first off, get the hell out of my son's face. He's the victim asshole! I said, maybe your department is in the f*(%ing ice ages, but their is no gang call the Pope's. Never heard of it. I said, and foot is too far in his throat to have time to associate with any gang. He is only allowed at a few friends house. I keep a tight reign over my son. I know where he is at ALL TIMES...I said maybe you got a mail ordered badge, because if in fact my son was in a gang, it must be a two man gang, being that he was jumped by 20 plus people and if he was coming to Worth to blow it up, don't you think he would have blown some of the kids up who ATTEMPTED to jump him. He says, maam, to be honest don't believe either sides....I said well, I believe my son...and if you look at his record vs theirs, my son is a POPE as Pope John Paul a saint. He has never been in any trouble. He loooked like a total ass! Turns out 4 of the kids have a record long as my arms and legs put together.....

I took Bee home, and we had a long time about "the choices we make". I had just had a long conversation with God, that morning. I asked that God protect my children and keep them safe. I asked that he would just cover them in his blood. I guess I felt something....

Other than that one incident, my weekend was GRRRREEEEEEAAAAAAATTTT!

Friday, September 07, 2007

Hey Hey, It's Friday!!

Wow, this week sure went by fast! Now its time to relax, NOT! I have such a busy weekend. Today, we are going out with my nephew Pluke (not his real name, his name is Parrish, but its his nickname, in case anyone was wondering...LOL)he is moving to Las Vegas, sin city baby! He leaves Sunday, I am going to be sooooo sad ! Pluke is like our own. Saturday, I have to take Jariel to his 3 on 3 tournament, and then we are going to CCHIlls fest. From there I am going to my sil's baby shower, come home take a quick power nap, before I head to my favorite cousin Cherrones, 28th birthday celebration. I am going to be so toasted, because my cousins are such bad influences.....LOL

Sunday, I will be RESTING.....Don't have anything plan, might swing by parent's house for a little bit, but nothing big.

What are your plans for the weekend? Anything big?

Been having a blast

Labor day weekend was a blast, we ate so much, I felt like Violet on Willie Wonka and the Chocholate Factory. LOL We went to a. bbq with friends, then my dad had a company picnic, the kids had a blast! Then I cooked too. I cooked ribs, steak, chicken wings, chicken legs, hot link, turkey legs, and hot dogs. I cooked baked beans, dirty rice, potato salad, spaghetti, corn on the cob, and 7 layer salad. I was dog tired, but we sure ate good. Dh did all the grilling, I just marinated and seasoned the meat.

My nephew Marion is so hilarious. He told us we got our turkey legs off of Ebaby from the Flinstones.....It was soooooooooo funny. YOu had to be there.

Lately I have been doing a lot of soul searching and thinking, about the choices I have made, One being this house....I love the house, but the neighborhood is not all what its cracked up to be. I mean the kids are super mean, my kids constantly getting into it .....I mean everyday, its something. I Love the house, but am not happy with the neighborhood. I keep telling myself winter will be here soon and all will settle down, but what will happen when summer arrives again? I am going to give it some time, but I am growing very unhappy.

Other than that, I have 2 really good set of neighbors! Whom we really get along with good and they feel the same exact way. I am hoping things will get better and soon. If not this house will be on the market and I will be researching my next neighborhood....LOL

ON a brighter note, I am now used to the kids being in school. I love the me time that I have. I have been reading, reading, reading and writing, writing, writing....soon I will be scrapping, scrapping, scrapping.....LOL

I am looking forward to summers end, and welcoming FAll. Which is truly my favorite time of the year! Cooler days! Longer nights! Fun, Fun, Fun....LOL

Well, I have to go and break up a fight between Bonnie and Clyde, seems they are arguing over LOTION.....those two kids.....LOL
