Really? Why do you have to be that way?

Can I just say how tired I am, that when you  are home, you control the remote.
Why is that? I can be in the middle of a program and you come home, pick up the remote, walk over sit in your chair (that no one else can sit in when you are home) and start flipping through channels until you find what you want to watch. It doesn't matter what it is; American Pickers, The Weather Channel, golf, some old western, basketball, soccer, tennis, boxing, and on and on.
But what really, really irritates me is when you have to watch old games. Oh wait, classic games. Games from any where to 1970 something to early 2000's.
Here it is, the beginning of NASCAR season, I have the remote and just because I am on my laptop when you come home, you take the remote and change the channel and start watching Golf!
It's NASCAR! It's what I have been waiting for since November. It's what I have been marking off on my calendar since the first of this month! I know it's not
technically an official race. But it's my sport! Its' just practice for next week's race and there is an actual race on tonight. But again, not a race that actually counts toward the whole season. But, it is my sport. I know you would rather watch golf or whatever other sport is on. I know there are no cars on the track right now, because they are doing pre-race season stuff. But, it's my sport! I like to try and get caught up on things that have happened in the off season, without always having to get online to see what has been going on.
I don't mind watching golf, when my Little Irishman (Graeme McDowell) is playing. I absolutely hate watching basketball with you, because all you do is yell at the t.v. and go right insane. I hate how you have to rewind the t.v. to show me a shot on anything you are watching, and say: did you see that? watch this! Really? I don't care and I really hate when you do that!

Do you have a favorite sport or even t.v. show that you like to watch, but can't when your spouse or significant other is around because they have to be in charge of the remote?

My Favorite Time of the Year!

Today, February 14 is Valentine's Day! 
Do you just love it? I do! But, not because it is Valentine's Day, but because it is that much closer to the beginning of the NASCAR season!!
It was a good day. Kids went to school. Princess Shaney was so excited that she got a pink Carnation from a secret admirer. Prince Krusher had a date, because the Sweetheart's Dance is tonight. So, he and his friends & their dates had a movie night and then tomorrow they are all going to the dance. I will post pics on Sunday of them.
I had Chinese food and sat in front of the t.v. all night watching NASCAR stuff.
First it was 2 hours of practice for tomorrow nights race, then it was an hour of Remembering the 2012 Daytona 500, then it was an hour of  The Return of the Number 3. Then it was an hour of The Day, Remembering Dale Earnhardt.
So, all in all, it was a great night! And now, I'm off to bed!
Hope all of you had a great Valentine's Day, no matter how you choose to celebrate it!

Huge Step!

It's been a hard week. On February 2, Princess Shaney had another friend she used to go to school with, try to commit suicide. And it turned into a pretty sad and bad ordeal. I will maybe talk about that another time. She had moved to California about a year ago and was constantly bullied.

On Tuesday night, one of my friends put together a candle light vigil for all of the kids that had gone to school with her, friends and family that still live in this area and just anyone who wanted to attend. There were about 200 people that showed up, most of them were Jr. High & High School kids. Those that knew her talked about her and shared memories of her. Then some of the kids talked about their experiences with bully and suicide attempts. That's when Princess Shaney made her huge step.
She talked about how she has been bullied her whole life at home and at school, she talked about how she didn't think anyone would care if she was dead and how she had attempted suicide twice. She told of how when her other friend had
committed suicide and the ripple effect it had and how many people it affected, not just her family, but tons of people. She talked about how now she knows there are a lot of who love and care about her and would really struggle if she wasn't here.
I was so proud of her. That is the first time she has talked about it with people she didn't know and kids she hasn't seen in about a year. That is one of the biggest steps to take in getting better, not to hide things, but to put them out there and deal with them openly and honestly.
So, things are getting better and better every day.

I am so glad things are finally getting better!

Been MIA, Again!

It has been crazy around here last couple of weeks! So, now I'm trying to get caught up on some things. One being bloggy world!
The last time I posted, it was still January! Now it's almost the middle of
February! How crazy is that?

So, since the last time I posted, We had an officer involved shooting. One was about 45 miles from my home, the other was about 5 miles from my home. 2 County Sheriffs were shot by the same person. 1 was killed, the other was shot in the head but did survive and is doing well. This incident hit very close to home. I have 2 brothers that are both police officers and they knew both officers.

*Prince Kenard turned 21! How crazy is that? I can
not believe that my first boy is 21! Where does the time go? It does not seem it has been that long since he was born.

*A couple of days before Prince K's birthday, I had gone out in the field to do some pictures, because it had been a few days since I had done that too.
Well, one of my outdoor babies seen me outside and decided it was time to play.
He always thinks he' just a big puppy dog. He is big but is not a puppy dog.
I like to play with him. But, there are times he scares me. And being out in a foot of snow when he wants to play is one time that he does really scare me, cause he can move a lot faster than I can.

He wanted his belly scratched

Come on! Come play with me!

Well, that's what I've been doing the past couple of weeks. Hope you all have been having
a good February!
