just stuff

Here are some things i have made over the last few weeks. I let the girls take my camera to Jeff's moms house with them when they went for Thanksgiving break and they left it so I have no new photo's.  Just some x-mas stuff I have been working on. I have a new scarf, like four new octopuses, then of course mom and Shari's x-mas present. i bought the rest of that today. 

These are made with a gold hypoallergenic fish hook and Rose Quartz beads.

it still needs six rows but I think I am going to leave it as it is. We have been using it for a year now the way it is. 

These were taken about a month ago outside our front door across the street.

camera pointing the other direction to get more of the pinkish color.

Its been almost a year!!!!

I crashed our Chrysler almost a year ago on December 2nd, 2011.  I still  have a hard time taking the highway by my self. Its even harder going by the accident spot.  But I have done it and have spilled tears as I was doing it. I am OK going over when I have someone else in the car with me but when I am by myself its really super duper hard.  I have put this family in hard ship with the accident and I regret it.  

We are still working on getting help for our house.  But if we cant we have decided to file for Bankruptcy. There are two kinds we were advised to consider.  We were told to do either a chapter 13 or a 7.  But after all is said and done we may still have to give up our home.  It hasnt been a pleasant ride at all.  

I have been told by certain people that I am getting a  free ride at school. Its not even the teacher this time. I am getting an education I have no clue how to use.  I am doing my best and trying but no one believes me. It hurts my friends.  With all this said and done I feel worthless and just horrible.  

The girls go to grandmas on Saturday until Thanksgiving Day and then we bring them home. Lots going on. Then the week after thanksgiving we have finals.  Then I have IP Networking, Database Concepts, and Comp 2 all at the school this coming quarter. 

I start my new job on Monday. I will be working at a place called Bellvue assisted living. I will be working the kitchen as an Aide.  Helping get lunch ready and then going out and setting tables, getting coffee, juice and what not to the table.  My favorite temp job has let me down this year. I was working full time up to last week where i only worked 1 DAY and havent been called back since. OH well. It happens. I applied for unemployment also.  I hope I can get that going soon. I forgot to call them on Sunday. Hopefully I didnt mess it up.  Anyway I need to get to my homework.

I will miss those that dont blog to much anymore and I miss those that do blog all the time because i seem not to have much time to comment and visit like I used to.  Hope all is well and if I dont get back before Thanksgiving Happy Thanksgiving Day my friends for those that celebrate it here in the States.

Very Tired and moving right along!!!

Hiya peeps. We have had lots going on here now in the last few weeks.  Jeff ended up in the hospital for this first two hours of his day last Monday.  His psoriasis kicked in and he scratched ended up with  a bad infection. He took his meds for it and it seems to be OK now.  Then on Tuesday I was leaving the school and the cars back passenger break drum finally snapped.  It was squealing and just horrible. I got up the hill that we have to go up to get to the main road but that is where I stopped.  We spent 479.00 dollars there.  That is where the mess ended for last week.

This Monday we found out that Brianca is two months pregnant. She is due June 28th, 2013.  She thinks she knows everything just because. She is one of those people who thinks they know everything and so does her BF that isnt even divorced from his wife yet.  Life is taking a wide turn.  They have to find a place soon where they can start getting ready for the baby. They need everything. Jeff offered her my crib that I was saving for us or the girls later on. I cant have anymore of my own but i would like to adopt after I get settled after school with a good paying job.

I am in alot of pain from work last night.. they do this one job about once a year and it seems I always get put on it at least once.  they are 72 inch bags for drapery poles.  They are a bitch to work with and alot of bending over the table.  I didnt sleep to well last night. My legs kept cramping up on me and I just cleaned the piss out of my house. Something that I havent had time to do in a long time or for that matter blog about anything. I am so tired.

The girls are going to stay with grandma in two weeks for 13 days.  then we are going to go get them on Thanksgiving Day and bring them home.  I have a p resent going for his mom and Shari but I cant post pix quite yet because Shari reads my blog.  I dont want them seeing x-mas  present before its done.  Those of you who want to see it and have my cell number text me and I will send a text photo.

I was asked to do some of those crocheted dish towel tops for a friend of mine. I have never done them before and hoping I can figure them out. she gave me an old towel to work on one first to see how well it turns out and then she bought two brand new towels she wants done.  So I am busy with school and trying to get mom and shari's present done and now this.  But these towels shouldnt take long after I figure them out. Ok peeps I need to get to some home work and studying before class tonight. I will post pix of the towels when I am done.  Talk soon

Oh before i forget here are some of my newest creations. three packer colored wash cloths, and  really soft hat that feels like its made out of velvet..  the dish cloths i am asking eight dollars for and the hat i am asking 15. three dollars for shipping for both of them.  if anyone is interested in home made x-mas presents or wants a different color just let me know ok.

Lots going on

Hiya all. There has been a ton of stuff going on here in my house since my last big post without the photo's.  I dont even know where to start to be honest.  Well I guess I will start with school. I passed Trig with a C and my Sever class with a B+ and my Physical Networking class with an A. I was so worried about that math class. I bombed the final but still walked out of the class with a C.  I am proud of myself.  This quarter I have Linux, intro to programming and Composition which is on line this quarter but I go to the school for the other two classes. Jeff has been a great help with the Programming class. He tinkers with it at home for a hobby.

I am working for the time being as a temp at my favorite place.  I have been there since late July early August.  They just put in my machine again. Well they always had it but they put in the other half of the order they werent going to but its in high demand. The Medela breast pump bags are going hot right now.  I was told the pouches I am working on now for the older version are expensive.  A friend at work, her daughter in law just bought a new pump and she said it cost her about 600 dollars..  That is ridiculous for something you are using only for a small amount of time when you think of it.

We may be moving in six months. We sent out a payment for our house and they rejected it as of 9/25.  They sent us our check back saying it wasnt the amount we owe. They say they want to work with us but they didnt send us the packet we are waiting for the last time they did this.

Hey all. I have some disturbing news. I was seeing if I could do a lab on Tuesday before class.  Well Jeff knows a bit about the lab and he sat at the desk while I did the lab. I got to school and told the teacher that I had it done. He said he would check it over in a bit. Then he let it go.  But Friday night he came into the lab I was in waiting for Jeff to finish his class and was accused of cheating.  I did not cheat on this lab. I did it by myself. the only thing that Jeff  did do was help me put it in real code instead of the fake code we have been working with.

I had to take Jeff to the hospital this morning. His sores are getting so bad that every time he scratches he breaks one open. Well on Friday he broke one open and got some dirt in it and now he has an infection. He is really weak but doing ok and resting for now. His temp kept fluctuating and it scared me. then the nurse gave him some meds through the IV and he passed out on me but before then his eyes rolled up in the back of his head and his whole body went stiff. It scared the hell out of me.

Like I said lots going on. I have more pix of this last weekend. Jeff thought he could make it out for a bit and we took some awsome shots.  We got a great family photo of the four of us.  And then I got some pretty cool shots of just the girls.

look how big Kora is getting compared to us.  She is going to be taller than both of us when things are said and  done.

look at all those fall colors.  it was beautiful out Saturday.

bri and I . I have one of kora and I but i couldnt get it to load..

Here is a post but not the one I wanted to do but its pix of a few weekends ago.  Liam was laying on my yarn but he likes pink so the pink was attracting him to lay there we think.  you can see the pink skein of yarn. Enjoy...

Yahoo is going haywire..

Hiya peeps. We have yahoo as our main page on our computer here and I cant even read the yahoo news they keep up with there feeds.  There looks like some pretty interesting stories but cant get into them. It keeps saying sending request but the request never comes through.

I know I have been away for a long time and making some of you wonder if I have given up on blogging like many others have. No I am still here. Just been busy with life. And taking care of MY HOUSE...!!! I know its my fault for having peeps live here but I get no help what so ever except for the girls.  Sure someone is always here for them.  I am happy for that at least.

School quarter ends this week. I took my Saturday final for my Saturday final today and I got a C on it from what I understood. I am nervous about the Trig final on Monday. I have bounced up and down with that class so much this quarter and I failed almost all of my quizzes. I am at a steady C right now but afraid to see what is going to happen with the final grade on Monday.  And Tuesday I have my final in Clientle 2 or should I say Server 2008.

Then I go into Linux, comp on on line, and intro programming. Java speak basically.  We learn java. I wish I could have found my camera today. Kora was out mowing the front lawn for me. I thought I killed the mower. I was ready for a break and knew I needed to get more gas for it so Bri and I walked over the gas station and got some. Came home and put some more oil in its compartment and the gas and then the dang thing wouldnt let me pull the string.  So off I go to get Jeff and we tried for half an hour. Then he comes back in the house. He comes back outside five minutes later and says  he forgot to prime it. Well he does that and it starts right back up with a whole bunch of smoke.  Well we let the smoke die down and i did the little bit of the front of the yard to see if it would stay running at least.  It did but I thought I killed our mower today some how.

Life is good here otherwise. Jeff is still working at Pomps Tire but wants out.  He only has two classes this coming quarter. They are screwing him over royally.  His grad date got pushed back to December instead of Sept when they promised us they would graduate us.  We are suppose to have three classes each quarter. That is what we were told. Now they are screwing with him. He needs physics this quarter and not one of the ITT tech schools are doing it not even online.

I got my hair cut today and I splurged on myself. I got some hair care stuff. When my hair starts growing out and getting longer it grows to a certain point and then it starts getting fuzzy. Well I got some curl stuff for my hair. I got 30% off anything in the store today at Master Cuts and I bought this stuff. Just hope it works. You dont need a lot of it from what I am understanding.

History has been made. Neil Armstrong died today. I was trying to read that on yahoo news. but had to look  it up on google instead.  Oh talking about google. We found out in class last Saturday that they are trying to come out with this new product where you pay so much for 7 years and you get free internet. Or you pay so much for six months and get free internet and phone or something like that. Its from google.  I also got see what those new rasberry pies look like too in class today. If you dont know what they are they are awsome. They are a mini computer you can hook up to any thing with a USB port I believe. Like your TV or computer or just a monitor.  its cool.

Ok I am rambling and I am sorry. but its been at least a month since I have written anything at all. Lots to talk about. The girls went and stayed with his mom for two weeks.

Bri calls me and says mommy I want to come home.
me: can you wait till Saturday.
Bri: I guess but I still want to come home.
me: Grandma is going to bring you home Saturday ok?
Bri: ok. miss you mommy.

Its been the first time they were away for two weeks and she hasnt let me out of her site unless she absolutely has to like when I work. I have been working steadily for the last month now but you just never know with temp services and jobs when they are going to get caught up and then let us go. but I am working on getting a second job only 10 hours a week approximately.  its minimum wage but its better than nothing and when they do start letting peeps go from the temp place we have that little bit of income coming in and then i think I can still file for unemployment or partial at least.

Ok I am off to go finish making dinner. Talk to you all soon. Miss you all. Wish I had more time to visit you all like I used to.  Some of you have left me for FB but those of you still here are great to hear from time to time.

hiya peeps...

I have been missing in action again lately. I havent been doing much besides struggle with school this quarter. I have thought about quitting and then deciding that its not worth quitting.  Its hard for me right now. I am still not working steadily and we are still about to lose our house.  I need a job soon or we are sure to be screwed in more than one way.  I hate being this broke.

I have started making a new craft and could use the money. I have loads of colors around the house but if you need or want another color just holler.The tissue covers go for 15 dollars plus 3 dollars for shipping and the three washable placemats for 20 dollars plus 5.00 for shipping.

These tissue covers arent for sale. They belong t o Jeffs mom and partner but just showing  you all what I have gotten myself into of late. if you want one let me know.

Its been A while.... Acck

I have been horrible this month with blogging.  We had bri's 8th b-day and out 16th anniversary. I am still looking for work. We are almost out of time so we just might have to give up the house. I dont want too. but you just never know. We are a thousand dollars short a month.  I need a job badly.  Just not sure what we are going to do.  I looked up apts yesterday and if we move we are still screwed because we are still 300 dollars short a month.  It sucks dick really.

We are in our third quarter of college. I got stuck with Trig this quarter. Its killing me already and its only our second week.  I just keep telling my self only a few more weeks and you dont have to worry about it anymore.  Just keep plugging along.  I should be studying my opposite over hyptonuese.  or what ever you spell it..

Anyway I was hoping to have some good news for you all. Jeff took vacation during our break between classes.  We went to the Milwaukee Zoo and then to a place called Heritage Hill here in Green Bay. I will try to get both posts up in the next few days. i can put Zoo pix here. The Heritage Hill post will have to wait. Its a post in itself.  Its an amazing place.

We took Jeff and Doug out to what is called Wequiack Falls for Fathers day and had a picnic.  We had hamburgers, brat burgers, a macaroni salad with mayo, cheese chunks, and ham and oh yes dont forget the frozen peas. it was good.  I didnt get any photos of us at Wequiak Falls this time around.  But there is always next time.  it was a beautiful day and glad we got out. We got out three times while jeff was on vacation and it was wonderful.  I will have to put up another post on the Zoo there are just that many pix.  This was the beginning of our day.
