No way Jose'

My OB called me she wants me to get the Swine Flu Vac and I don't want to get it. After I did research and everything I don't wanna take the chance.
Pregnant women are considered at high risk for suffering complications or death from the new H1N1 pandemic swine flu. So they’re near the top of the list for getting vaccinated. A new international study calculates that up to 400 out of every million pregnant women who receive such swine-flu shots will experience a miscarriage within 24 hours.

I don't care if its only 400 out of a million that's still a risk I don't want to take. So Shove the shoot up your butt this Mama aint getting it sorry. When I go to my appointment next week Im going to be sure to print out the information I got and show her.

So with that our new place is not done yet so we are staying in a crap hole apartment which is the size of our living room and master room put together. Can you Picture 3bedrooms of things in a 2room place?? And by two rooms I mean and living area and a bedroom. Well don't try so hard it sucks. 40days left and I can't wait.

Its been 3 years since you left you will forever be in our heart! We found out on mothers day so I always think of him on that day!

First our dear friend Kyle Staheli went missing..No one had heard from him or seen him. He was murdered by two guys. I don't even want to say there names because it makes me sick. They Shot him 3 times in the back of the head execution style and than burnt his body and than stoled his car and crashed it .. A hiker than found his body 2 days later on Nellis and Stewart(Owen Hills)..... They than found his murder along with someone that happened to be accomplice to murder...The one murderer got away from the cops they shot at him and he bleed to death on the way to the hospital they other they put in jail. james Carter Jr. is the only victim still alive and he is charged with murder and facing life in prison. Swavue the other killer that died. We found out that he was him that was killed on mothers day. I wish there was some kind of justice that could come out of this but there's not.... Kyle You will be forever in memories....
You were such a good guy You will be forever missed still to this day...
I have pictures of him in my photo album.
If you didn't hear about his murder then here are some webpages.

An old poem from the Hubby. (April 2008)

Lovely words
Gentle touches and kisses
That's how we started

As the time flows
Many things has changed

We argued and had a quarell occasionally
Sometimes we did it until I'm crying in desperate
And wanting to be away from you

But something in my heart
Prevented me from leaving you
Something that wouldn't change
Even if I said 'I don't love you anymore'

My love wouldn't change
And it will always be the same

Yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

My love for you..
Will last..


I love you Honey more than words can Explain.

Valentines day!

A poem from the husband!!

A Valentine to My Wife

Accept, dear girl, this little token,
And if between the lines you seek,
You'll find the love I've often spoken—
The love my dying lips shall speak.

Our little one is making merry
O'er am'rous ditties rhymed in jest,
But in these words (though awkward—very)
The genuine article's expressed.

You are as fair and sweet and tender,
Dear green-eyed little sweetheart mine,
As when, a callow youth and slender,
I asked to be your Valentine.

What though these years of ours be fleeting?
What though the years of youth be flown?
I'll mock old Tempus with repeating,
"I love my love and her alone!"

And when I fall before his reaping,
And when my stuttering speech is dumb,
Think not my love is dead or sleeping,
But that it waits for you to come.

So take, dear love, this little token,
And if there speaks in any line
The sentiment I'd fain have spoken,
Say, will you kiss your Valentine?


James took me out. (Texas Land and Cattle) and we were sitting there eating our food the server comes up to us and hands us a gift card saying someone over there (pointed to the back wall) said to give this to you.. Umm. who is the mystery person? We ask the server of he can point the person out so we can say thank you he said they already gone.
James kept thinking who can if be the person he held the door open for, someone he help out from work, someone we know from vegas, family, or just a random person we have no clue.
