Mommy’s Escape 6.0

{June 23, 2009}   Dogs, Dogs, and More Dogs!!

Well, you all know that we have Steve the Wonder Pup (Princess’s Chihuahua) and Bella the monster pooch (My English Bull Dog) but now there is a possible addition. You see, Little Man wants his own pet – his own responsibility and of course, Daddy is more than willing to oblige – but at whose expense?

One of the dogs will most likely be going.

Yeap, that’s right.

You see, Steve is not so much of a wonder pup because he is still not wanting to eat. I have given him a buffet that could send your typical pooch into a binge eating frenzy. I mean we have done everything that could possibly be imagined to get that animal to eat but still nothing. So for now the vet is running a stool sample culture to see if he has any parasites causing the dwindle in appetite loss.

As far as Bella goes – she is a chewing biting machine! We got a trainer with a lifetime warranty on the training and so far she is still using my arm as a chew toy. We cannot even have the kids out to play with her because she will jump up on them and bite them. We are having the trainer back out here to try new methods.

With all honesty, these 2 things can be remedied and worked on so do I believe that there will be onw less dog in the house? NOPE!!! Do I believe that there will be a new dog in the house? YES!!!!

Do I believe that Little Man will be the one responsible for the animal? SORT-OF

Now I really need to find a job because I am going to need to stock up on the chocolate and pain killers because I know the headaches will be all my own!!!

One Year Ago Today

There was something about Anthony that called to her. He made her feel things that she never thought possible. Was it love? Was it lust? Whatever it was, Terri tasted it and wanted more.

Because of him she was doing something she never thought she would. Her status of the good girl next door who did nothing wrong was creeping away from her just as slowly as she crept away from her home. But it was him who made it possible. It was him who saw how much she wanted to be with Anthony and let her out the door. He made sure that she was free from getting caught and that her mother did not notice she was leaving the house way past her bedtime.

As she heard the rumble of Anthony’s car roll closer to her, she looked back at her house and saw him standing there, like a watchful wolf making sure she left. ‘

“I can’t believe he would let you sneak out! He is still standing there making sure I picked you up. Now that is a cool step-dad.” Anthony told her as he leaned in to give her a welcoming kiss.

“Yeah, I guess.”  Terri replied as she closed the door to his car. Shutting that door felt like shutting out the world that she did not want to realize was true. She had her suspicions and thoughts about him but no proof. All she knew was that he was too accommodating to her wants, even if they went against the rules of her mom.

Terri just wanted to get away, to escape from it all, not to be Terri anymore – to be someone else, somewhere else. Anthony was her escape from reality, if only for that one night, if only for now.

In a few hours, reality will set in and she will have to be Terri again and be part of that life and that world. But for now, she will be in the safety of Anthony’s arms and away from what haunts her.

She looked back one more time to see if it was real, if it was all happening and he was gone. He escaped into the darkness of the shadows of the house.

“What’s wrong babe?” Anthony asked.

“Nothing, babe, nothing. Let’s just go.” Terri took his arm off the arm rest and held tight to his hand. Already she wished the night wouldn’t end, that she no longer had to feel that worry again. She would have to settle for tonight, for now.

{June 11, 2009}   An Explanation

This is to you all who have come back and forth to see what I have been up to. I wanted to offer up an explanation as to why I have been out and missing for a while.

I have been out because I unfortunately am not working anymore. I found out that the company I was at was going to fire me – they had requested for a replacement for me on a day that I had to leave for an emergency. I found out while looking through the HR folder and I noticed a name that I was not familiar with and saw the transfer request.

This was on May 28th and as of yet, I still have not been able to find a job.

I don’t know what I am going to do because our savings will only hold us for so long but I am actively looking and pushing myself to find something.

I graduate Saturday but what am I going to do with it? I don’t know.

So please bare with me if I am not around – I am at home and with the kids and it doesn’t offer me much time to get on-line.

I am sorry, I don’t know when I will be back on but please know that I am thinking of you all and I will try and be back soon.

Feel free to email me at and I will reply as soon as possible.

Thanks again everyone.
