It was brought to my attention by my sweet friend that I am "blog slacking"!  Oh how I love that girl!!

Sorry peeps!! I will try to be better at posting!  Life has been crazy as of late.  It couldn't have anything to do with the 17 credit hours and Nursing School admittance preparations, could it?

Got much to talk about, however, and need to commit to writing it down.  After 30 years, I met my biological family.  I am still sorting through a bunch of those emotions, but can't wait to share with all of you.

Blog ya soon!!!!!!

Teen Mom.....

As much as I am conflicted about this show, I admit that I am addicted.  Being a teen mom myself, I can relate to these children and it really hits home for me.  My hope though is that this show is sending the proper message to young girls about taking control of their lives and preventing becoming a mother so early.  My fear is that the more popular this show becomes, the more "glamorized" teen pregnancy will become.

While on the treadmill the other day, I was watching one of my DVR'd (is that really a word?) shows "16 and Pregnant".  It was actually an after show special where they sit down with Dr. Drew and discuss the season.

One of the girls, Markai, had fallen pregnant again just months after giving birth to her first child at 17.  I am not sure what is more disturbing about this girl; the fact that she didn't learn her lesson the first time or her boyfriend/baby daddy has got some MAJOR race identity issues.  Seriously dude, if you have to have subtitles under everything you say, you may want to take a dictation class or something.  The saying "Love is Blind" should be followed up by "And Deaf" to be able to listen the verbal diarrhea that comes out of his mouth. But I digress......

Back to Markai...... surprise, surprise she got knocked up again so she decided to have an abortion.  Now, I am NOT trying to get into a political or religious debate of whether or not this kid was right or wrong.  I could personally never make that decision for myself and unborn child for a number of different reasons.

The one thing that pissed me off to no end was that Dr. Drew had on 2 other teens that did opt for abortion and one of the girls said: "It was a parenting decision." W...T...F...?????? A parenting decision?  I thought how you choose to discipline your child, where they will go to school, what television shows you will or will not allow them to watch was a "parenting decision".  What the hell would they know about making a parenting decision-they have never been parents!!!!! It sure as shit was NOT a parenting decision; it was a birth control decision and you decided NOT to take it and get knocked up.  I never knew in a million years that killing a child could be classified as a "parenting decision".

The next time I feel like I need to choke my kids out for misbehaving, I should tell them "It's ok if I kill you because I am just making a parenting decision".

Fo Rizell Maury??

Since I am a full-time college student, I try to keep my intellect in check and dumb it down each day with a nice helping of The Maury Show.  It never ceases to amaze me all the different breeds of humans that choose to look like a dumb ass on national television.  Not only can I get my daily dose of white-trash or hood rat, it also reaffirms my beliefs that the grass is NOT greener on the other side of the trailer park.

I am also convinced that Maury (which is pronounce "more-eee" to most but to most of his guests it is "mur-eee") may actually recruit his guest to come up with names for his segments. Some of my favorite show titles are:

DNA Results: I'm 100% Sure That He's The Father
It's a classic Maury show title and what he is famous for...... and because it's normal to have 13 guys in the lineup to your baby daddy, right?

Cheating: I Found A Naked Girl In Our Closet.  Are You Cheating?
Oh the mysteries of life......  and of course that is not proof enough.  Nothing says "I cheated" like a failed polygraph test.  I don't know what's more ignorant; the fact that you needed to go on national TV to prove his cheating ways OR the fact that you referred to finding a naked girl in your closet "the most terrible-ist thing in my life".

Run Forrest, Run

Some of you have been asking about my newest "Distance Widget" on my Blog page.  Basically I STOLE the idea from a fellow Blogger friend of mine that keeps bragging <wink wink> how her ass is magically disappearing because she has become a runner.

So, I have decided to try this "running" concept that people keep talking about.  This concept is very foreign to me because I have NEVER been a cardio person.  Ever.  Like a dumbass,  for the past 15+ years instead of hitting the gym or putting on a pair of running shoes, I opted for lighting up a ciggy instead. Brilliant, I know.

Now that I have been 21+ weeks SMOKE FREE, I decided I am ready to step up my health to another level.  Ironically, I have gained the most weight in the last 21 weeks.  Coincidence? I think not.  Or, it may be one of my MANY excuses of why I've gained weight (that's for another blog, another day).

As for the Distance Widget, I figured this was my best bet to accountability.  I am not up to running yet, but mimicking those serious "Mall Walkers" that everyone makes fun of.  In about a week or so I will start adding in some running and keep increasing as I go.

Keep an eye on the Widget people and keep me accountable!!!!!

No Phone Zone...

OK Oprah, I do have to give you props for your attempt to conquer the world by using your billions of dollars to influence and brainwash people educate people about the dangers of texting while driving.

I can only say this because the stories of local teenagers getting into horrific and life-changing car accident are becoming more and more frequent and for the fact that I have a teen aged daughter that is now driving.  My how the times have changed and gone are the days of parents ONLY having to worry about their pubescent child getting behind the wheel after drinking it up with their peers.  Oh no..... If that weren't enough to put a parent into premature graying, now we have to worry that our teens will make the right decision to NOT pick up their cell phone while driving a car.

Are you serious???  I can't even have dinner with my teen without her finger fucking her phone the whole time and only listening to about 1/4 of the words that come out of my mouth.  Also, have you ever been a passenger while a teen is driving? I can't do it.  I just can't handle it.  I'd like to think of myself as a rational person that has patience and cat like reflexes in an emergency situation, but you put me in the passenger's seat with my child behind the wheel and you can drop all of that like a turd from a tall horse.  I experience so much anxiety that I literally can feel my test tighten.

So now we put our children behind the wheel with a more deadly weapon than alcohol: THE CELL PHONE.

Talk to your kids people.  Make them sign a damn pledge. Educate them.  Take their car, their phone, whatever it takes if you catch them texting while driving.  The consequences of doing NOTHING is unfathomable.
This was Josiah just months ago.  Young vibrant man, active in his church and all around great kid:

And this is Josiah now after being hit by a Semi Truck. 

A few months ago he was carrying his prom date.
A few days ago his FB status was "can walk now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

He and his family are going to hell and back.  I hope you think about kids like Josiah the next time you just have to send that text while you're driving. He could be you.  He could be your child.

God Speed Josiah.

Music Mania

Just a few songs that are on my playlist right now.

I've been a little depressed, can you tell?
