"I bought a bird feeder. I hung
it on my back porch and filled
it with seed. What a beauty of
a bird feeder it was, as I filled it
lovingly with seed. Within a
week we had hundreds of birds
taking advantage of the
continuous flow of free and
easily accessible food.

But then the birds started
building nests in the boards
of the patio, above the table,
and next to the barbecue.

Then came the poop. It was
everywhere: on the patio tile,
the chairs, the table ..

Then some of the birds
turned mean. They would
dive bomb me and try to
peck me even though I had
fed them out of my own

And others birds were
boisterous and loud. They
sat on the feeder and
squawked and screamed at
all hours of the day and night
and demanded that I fill it
when it got low on food.

After a while, I couldn't even
sit on my own back porch
anymore. So I took down the
bird feeder and in three days
the birds were gone. I cleaned
up their mess and took down
the many nests they had built
all over the patio.

Soon, the back yard was like
it used to be .... quiet, serene....
and no one demanding their
rights to a free meal.

Now let's see.
Our government gives out
free food, subsidized housing,
free medical care and free
education, and allows anyone
born here to be an automatic

Then the illegals came by the
tens of thousands. Suddenly
our taxes went up to pay for
free ser vices; small apartments
are housing 5 families; you
have to wait 6 hours to be seen
by an emergency room doctor;
your child's second grade class is
behind other schools because
over half the class doesn't speak

Corn Flakes now come in a
bilingual box; I have to
'press one ' to hear my bank
talk to me in English, and
people waving flags other
than 'Old Glory' are
squawking and screaming
in the streets, demanding
more rights and free liberties.

Just my opinion, but maybe
it's time for the government
to take down the bird feeder. "

**Michael and i had the distinct pleasure of working for George for many many years. He was always an utter gentlemen. He wanted few things in life, but mostly a friend, he found that in michael. they grew to be very close, and we had george up to the house many a time, he loved getting away from the city, and was quite fond of my secret hamburger recipe. when we went down to his house, he would always play cards with michael, rummy i believe, and smoke his cigarettes, lol.. did that man love his cigarettes. every time he would try to give us money for helping him out we would hold onto it for when he didn't have any left, and buy him a few packs of smokes with it. we would sit around his little kitchen table there in hilltop and listen to his stories, and boy did he have them! some funny.. some sad.. some touching.. but he always had something. he loved when we brought timmy up with us, he always had fun with him, and was devastated when we told him he was returning back to his fathers house. he always poked fun at the people that stayed in my home.. waring us that they were no good. though he was always very kind to them when i brought them down. you could tell george anything you wanted to, no one could ever call him judgmental. he loved and protected Michael to the utmost, even back when mike was back with jen.. george told me he wasn't there lol.. because mike didn't want to talk to me. He was one of the sweetest people i have encountered, he will be missed, i am sure i could go on for hours talking about how much fun george was.. but non of it would ever paint the true picture, if you knew him you were of the lucky few.


It just never ends...

and today.. from Timmy's former foster mother,

So you say Timmy was your life, where is his diamond (BTW a tiny fake diamond he found on the street.. reasonably, does anyone think i have a clue where this is??) and bee bee gun (we don't have his bb gun, not to mention, i don't see him going after Harold for his other two bb guns) and all the other things you didn't give back (what things???) ? When you love someone you give them there stuff back. He is extremely hurt by this. (no, actually, if she knew him, he is playing the same game he played with Karen and Harold, not that i am surprised) You have no right to keep what was his.(i literally have NOTHING in my home of his) I would like to know where all his things are. (so would i I GAVE THEM BACK!!!!) When he left our house we sent him with everything. We love him very much and we know that his things are very important to him.



and my response,

I am contacting a lawyer. This is harassment. I have had quite enough. how DARE you question my devotion to the child I offered to take in? You don't even know the half of what I went through for him. My decision to take him in cost me my job, and money I didn't have to spend on him. You think you know everything sitting on your high horse. NO ONE in his family offered to take him in for even a second. They all turned the other way. I did not EVER expect to take him in, I had no desire to be a foster parent, not until he needed me. I suppose thats all easy to forget. not to mention the countless hours I spent helping him with his homework, watching him when things were rough at home, even before he moved into my home. I even stuck with him when Michael left me for a while, because I wasn't willing to let him go to a house he didn't know and believe me i struggled. You don't know a thing so don't assume! Everything we had in our home we gave back. If he isn't even living with you any more I suggest you find someone else to harass and don't think for one second I don't know what you put him up to. I am not a moron. And reading through my myspace as you were, is despicable. Your games are tired. leave me and my family alone. He hasn't lived with me for at least 8 months now!! This needs to end. Contact me again and I will report you.



Oh What a Night... (no, i'm in no mood to break out into THAT song :P)

so, i get to work and i hear k screaming at the top of her lungs like there was an axe murderer at her door (there wasn't in fact, there was noting.) that was fun, she didn't calm down either, not until i let her go to bed (which was at 4pm) then after i did pm care T decided to freak out. which is very unlike him, but i think he was mad bc his pj pants kept falling down, he ended up throwing his toy across the kitchen floor rather violently, the pieces of it spraying everywhere, thank-god none of the other residents were anywhere near. so i helped him into some new pj pants, and got him a drink, which is thickened juice. i'm not sure if any of you have had the pleasant experience of cleaning jello off of surfaces, but its not fun and thats basically what thickened liquid becomes. well.. he took one sip and threw the cup, the full cup. then it hit the light above the kitchen table, down comes a spray of glass, then it hits the wall by the window, it gets in the screen, it gets on the wall, on the floor, on the table, on the chairs, just everywhere. lovely. so i decided i should just try to get him to bed. yeah, uhhh no? he throws his pillow off the bed, his blankets, and all his toys out of the toy-box. more mess, so i make every attempt to get him in bed, to no avail. so i start picking up his room, and then remember the drink, yay.. now its like dried yellow on everything. *sigh* pretty much the whole night went on like this, and then j got upset and started acting out bc of t... i was going to commit homicide. (not really but i was freaking out) and i am sure i'll go back and janice will have something to complain about. oh and i finally think to tell her a funny story from when i got my nails done.. i had taken j there the night before, and so the lady goes wheres your boyfriend lol.. bc j kept holding my hand and saying "she mine" meaning me it was cute.. well Janice's reaction "i hope she was being sarcastic" now wtf is that? fucking duh it was sarcasm... ummm ew? and lord is that offensive!


Reconnect and Disconnect...

Thats been the theme of my day today. Darren and i finally started talking again, which is really nice, i mean we were the closest of friends way back. We even had a pact that if we weren't married by 30, we would get married. Thats a pretty close friend if you ask me. so that was the reconnect.. as far as the disconnect.. janice had officially made me want to quit my job.. she was mad at me for not eating with T and decided to yell at me for 30 mins about it.. lucky me... oy..
