[mood |awakeawake]

How about that 2012 eh? Guess the world didn't end. Mayans can't be right about everything right? LOL. Hope everyone has a great new year just remember It's a fresh new year. Resolutions are kind of dumb but deciding to make a positive change in your life is never a bad thing. Remember some things change, and some things don't. No matter how many years go by there are two things I'm pretty certain of. Adrianna will never get sick of eating strawberries or reading. XD

Occupy wall street? How about just occupying a place in the heart of the world [Oct. 7th, 2011|01:45 pm]

[mood |aggravatedaggravated]

I have been watching what has been happening on wall street and other communities with keen interest. What I have been able to learn from this is. It will grow and spread. It is too,like wildfire. With this in mind I know it will soon be at my doorstep. On October 21st there will indeed be a peaceful protest in Detroit. Some of the images and videos are awe inspiring, others just make me sick to my stomach. Either way I know when THAT many people of all different races and classes are out there standing together angry as hell. Well when that happens there really needs to be a change. Obama told us to ask for change. Now people are asking for that exact change and what is happening? They are being pepper sprayed,beaten and terrorized by the very people who are there to protect them. What is the world coming to when we have to be afraid of our own civil servants? I have had plenty of them in my own family. My grandfather was a Detroit firefighter,my great grandfather was a Detroit Police officer. Believe me, neither of them would be ok with what is going on. One thing I have heard some of these protesters chanting as people are being pepper sprayed,beaten and rounded up like cattle with bright orange nets is. The world is watching! I got to thinking. I wonder if the world is really watching? Well I have made it my mission to find out now. So first I went to a mainstream UK site to see if they are watching. The Uk is watching. Is France watching? France is watching. Is Germany watching? Germany is watching. What about Japan? Yep, they are also watching. How about China? Are they watching? Yep, they are also watching. Spain is also watching. Italy is watching. Ok there has to be some place that hasn't heard about these protests yet. Has South Africa been informed about what's going on? Yes South Africa knows too. Remember I said I would only check the top mainstream sites right? What about Brazil? Do they know about this? Yes, they also know. I could probably go about this all day. The truth is though, the world really does seem to be watching and I am so tired of us looking like idiots to the rest of the world. We already look really bad for invading iraq with out the ok of the united nations. We invaded Afghanistan too and we have really made too much difference there either. Enough as enough already. New York civil servants it is your job to protect the population. So instead of herding people like cattle and chaining transgendered men to toilets for HOURS. Maybe you could just make your presence known and watch and protect and if you see people that need help or see fights breaking out. THEN get in there and do what you are paid to do. Protect the peaceful citizens. This isn't just a message for New York civil servants. These protests are EVERYWHERE. This a message to all the civl servants out there. In My community where I live I trust the cops. I will even say I REALLY like the cops here. They wave to me and are always very friendly and helpful if I ever need anything. These men and women are the kind of people you want to have in your community protecting you. I just wish everyone else would jump on their train. Anyhow I'm going to step off my soap box now. I do think there needs to be some change, We are always so busy protecting the world while we are failing here at home. Right now I am not a proud american. You know what though? I sure would love to be one again.

SO I'm standing in the kitchen washing a few dishes around 7:57pm last night and ... [Sep. 21st, 2011|09:05 am]

I faintly hear the sound of the ice cream truck and I think to myself "Holy creepy ice cream truck batman? Isn't this around when the kiddo's start going to bed?" Mark and I have joked about how relentless the ice cream man is about our street. Then I just keep hearing it, It isn't going away. So I think to my self wtf? I go open up the front door since Adrianna is out there still and needs to be coming in to shower and get ready for bed and see a herd of kids at the ice cream truck. The neighbor bought them all ice cream. Wow! At that moment though I was thinking of






What I ended up getting out of this was






Yep She hadn't even finished half her ice cream before it fell on the sidewalk and I was greeted by a neurotic 8 year old that was maybe a little over tired and in her words " Just too sad to stop crying." I popped that girl in the shower with some heavenly smelling body wash. I reminded her that one of her best friends Amelia had given her said body wash and that she had a lot to be thankful for despite the loss of the ice cream. That did the trick and she was fine. Thanks a lot creepy ice cream man.

With All that said now I feel a little better. It was hard for me to post for a while after the one I posted it about it not being cancer and them ending up telling me it was. It's kind of hard to swallow. Things are better now though. My grandma passed and I miss her but she had a stroke last halloween and wasn't showing much sign of getting better so now she is in a better place. I have been able to go bike riding more which is AWESOME! I miss riding when it is all crummy outside. I feel so much better when the weather is nice and the sun is out. I don't have to be outside either. Just knowing by looking outside that it is sunny and nice out is enough to make me feel better. When it rains and it is gray and impossibly cloudy I just feel tired and it zaps all my motivation. Anyhow I think we may have company now so I may get back on here later and post some happy pictures. I haven't posted Rasputina concert pictures in a while have I? LOL, I did catch a show this winter so I may have to post those later!

So.... Actually it was cancer and that kind of sucked. Kids just kept on picking on her about that lump on her arm and it came to the point where she actually said "I hate my ugly face." I mean Adrianna really? You are one of the most beautiful children I have ever met in my life, Inside and out. You're always making sacrifices to help other people and sticking up for people that aren't as strong as you are. It was just heart breaking so I decided this "lump" was not going to ruin her life so we were going to get plastic surgery. We took her into our family doctor and explained she had a lump and it was getting her picked on and she felt bad about herself and we just had to have it removed. He wrote us a referral to a plastic surgeon within the building. We took her in and she was happy and I kissed our little girl goodbye, and they took it out. Goodbye little evil lump. When the doctor finished the procedure he came out and told us he had never saw anything like it and he was going to send it out to Children's hospital for biopsy. He told me it was on the muscle tissue. Mind you this surgeon has 35 years of experience so this was some seriously scary news. So I went home and did what any rational parent would do. I went home and google'ed every possibility of what it could be. The scariest thing I came up with was cancer. We went back to get the stitches out a week later and my suspicions and fears were confirmed, it was indeed cancer. The doctor told me and I said I'm sorry you need to repeat yourself and he did and I just started bawling. I told him "You better get me the best damn doctor's you can find. She is my only child and I don't intend to have anymore." Then he actually laughed and said"That's what all parents want. " I told him " No, That's not true, There are a lot of shitty parents out there that don't even like their kids, but I am good parent and this is what I want. Money is not an object, get me the best." He then told me well, this kept me up all night I have grand kids of my own her age. He told me it was synovial sarcoma. He then told me he had gotten a hold of the sarcoma center at U of M hospital in Ann Arbor and he was going to write us a referral. So we went to U of M. Once a week every week for... a couple months. They did every type of fancy testing you can think of. Blood tests,Mri's,Bone scan's,Cat Scan's and they came out to show that the lump had not spread any where else and because it was smaller then 5 centimeters it did not require chemotherapy. The tumor was about 3 and a half centimeters when it was excised. When we went for the pre op appointment she was sick. Probably for a few reasons, Through all this she had stayed in school and also inhaled anesthesia twice in a month period. the odds were against her. She had bronchitis. The surgeon told us that we would have to reschedule. What she wanted to do was go in and take out any tissue that didn't look right to her and also take all the skin in that area and sew it up. and then stretch the skin a little and sew it back up. Adrianna go better and that's exactly what she did.






Because of the stretching it has left a little bit of an unusual impression. Adrianna jokes that Captain Hook took a bite out of her arm when she was fighting the pirates. It's pretty incredible really. The entire time she has kept her sense of humor. When She was told she might possibly lose feeling from mid arm down she was quiet for a minute and then she said "Well, that's ok. If that happens and anyone ever picks on me and my friends again. Will punch then with the hand I don't feel. I'll punch them as hard as I can. When we were in the examination rooms in the cancer center we had a joke. She would scoot all the way up on the examination tables and she would say. I'm going to fart on this pillow and the next person that comes in here is going to get pink eye! Then she would just start CRACKING up. Anyhow she ended up not losing feeling but she did lose some mobility in her arm.

http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150114920277701.284259.583912700&l=116237429f

A couple days after her surgery when we were able to take the sling off she discovered she could not move her arm below her belly button and that scared her. So she picked up her bow and she started playing her cello. It hurt but she did it. She did it every day and when she went back to get her stitches removed Dr. Biermann felt around the area of the stitches and asked can you feel this... and this and every time Adrianna said yes. Then she said ok let me see you move this arm. And Adrianna showed her that she could completely move her arm. She said "Wow, it looks like you have full flexibility back. I laughed and said "yeah she probably should. She has been playing her cello since she has been able to take her sling off." She said huh. Isn't that funny. I actually played cello as a child myself. I wasn't very good, You are probably much better then I was." This coming from a woman who graduated Stanford. It brought a big grin to Adrianna's face. She told her she wanted to be a rock star some day, and play her cello. Since then things have been getting better. Yeah there is a LOT of expense involved in treating cancer but it doesn't have to ruin your life if you just find it early enough. I guess I am partly writing this because of that. Before all of this I didn't even know that you could have cancer of the muscle tissue. I have heard of lung cancer, skin cancer,and every type of organ cancer. Muscle cancer though no. Totally unheard of. It could have been so much worse and so thankful that we were able to find it when we did. What the U of M diagnosis wat that it was a Antiomatoid Fibrohisteocytic tumor. Go ahead, try to pronounce that. There were some signs. She became more pale, She normally has a huge appetite and she started eating less. I think she may have even slept more. Truthfully though these are also signs of anemia. What was different though is one day she just woke up with a lump in her arm about the size of a pea. It was flesh colored and with her father's family history of lipoma's we didn't think a ton of it. But in a couple months time it pretty much doubled in size and it turned purplish like it was bruised. Kids though it was ugly and truthfully it wasn't "pretty" per say to look at. So I guess if you should ever get a lump, just any lump that seems a little odd to you, go have it looked at. Even if you have a family history of lipoma fatty tumors. It may end up saving your life.

Adrianna is back in school and seems to be really enjoying it. Today is her 4th lesson meaning that she has now been playing cello for a month! Her teacher hasn't really had her start playing with a bow yet, its all been pizzicato. (plucked) She seems to be enjoying it though and really does like her new teachers both a lot. Last couple years my relations have not been what I have wanted with school. This year though there is a new principal who seems quite pleasant and I think things will get easier. Don't get me wrong though we both really did enjoy her teacher last year. I think last year for Adrianna was great. This year she doesn't really have any of her best friends aside from Ben with her. They don't sit next to each other though like they did last year ALL year! She came home today and said music class was really easy today. All they had to do was clap rest clap. "they have rests in my cello music book!" It's kind of exciting to see her apply something like that to her school work. I have taken so many pictures over the summer until now and I haven't posted any of them. For some reason its just been really hard to motivate myself to get on here and write. Mother in law called today and told me she found the Draculaura doll that Adrianna wanted at her store. Also bought her the Cleo De Nile and Duece Gorgon doll set. They are basically dolls based off of classic horror movie monsters. They would be their teenage children anyway. I'm glad she was able to get Draculaura which was basically the only one she wanted because they sold out of her at toys r us and I was looking on ebay and... ouch! I let Adrianna watch Underworld with me and she liked it. I refuse to let her watch twilight ugh. I don't think she can watch Underworld two though due to some nudity. Based on that I think I will probably let her watch the original Dracula,Frankenstein, and the Wolf man. I loved all those cheesey black and white horror movies when I was kid and still have a place for them in my heart. She doesn't mind black and white movies like some of the kids her age. She has a few black and white Shirley Temple movies and loves them. I think I want to get her Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands for Christmas. that and a down alternative cover for her bed. She has a futon and the mattress is not quite what it used to be. She might not notice it as much being as light as she is but I was laying in bed with her the other day and I was downright uncomfortable! Her cousins are probably going to be so confused at Christmas time by all the semi creepy gifts! They are used to her getting all sorts of cutesy fairy stuff, although the skull thing has been present for years due to her loving pirates. I met the new art teacher yesterday she seems nice and was more then happy about the offer to come in to help her so that's awesome. I can go back to art class!She seems really nice but seemed a little overwhelmed when I met her.She looks pretty young. We went to build a bear work shop for my Birthday and Adrianna built me a Sanrio Chococat. Nellie hated that thing at first but is now currently on the bed behind me snuggled with it. She's so soft, like bunny fur. I love her but she is really dumb. Adrianna and I were watching some random Youtube clip with a cat and she was on my lap and she actually started hissing at the screen! She has this habit of sorrowfully meowing when Mark or I leave. Mark was rather sleep deprived yesterday and I left to take Adrianna to School and apparently she was at it again. He was so mad he finally had to get up and scream shut up at her to get her to stop.I think she is getting a little senile. Rightly so though I guess she is 17. I am noticing it hurts to type a little. I took a shower a little bit ago and pretty much right as I was getting out of the shower the smoke detector started going off. I probably smacked that thing 30 times as I am standing there dripping wet growling at the thing "It's steam!" as if I could reason with it. So I suppose that is why my palm hurts. I finally just took the battery out. So annoying! Men get a bad rap sometimes for just beating on stuff when they are angry. I'm not sure if its all women but I know I have myself personally put dents in cars with my fist and broken stuff or just beat on stuff. It's hard when you are angry. I can say I do not take these things out on people. I try my best not to anyway. I may occasionally unjustly snap at some one when I am grumpy but I have never hit some one for just annoying me when I was cranky. I think its time to go to a concert again. I need to find a good show. It seems like a good way to start off a new school year. I did it last year and it helped me blow off a lot of steam. I get really stressed about it before it starts. After it starts its not really that big of a deal but this school expects a lot. We have to buy all the school supplies for the year and then they have suggested donations which we always buy too. Then you have to make sure they have new shoes. The weeks previous to school starting you have to make them go back to bed at a reasonable hour. We have to be up at 7am and out the door no later then 7:55 to be there at 8am. Then there are all the fund raisers and school events. Summer is so much less complicated! I did babysit most of the summer though so the sleeping in thing didnt happen so much. I'm not going to lie, I love sleep. Mark bought us a new bed not that long ago and it is soooo comfortable so now it is even harder to get out of bed. Most of the time I'm not super sleepy but after aunt flow visits the iron deficiency anemia kicks in and I am tired for about a week. Though as much as I can sit here and complain about getting up early for school I am happy too though because I have a few friends that I didn't get to see very much over the summer but now our kids are back in school so we all get to see each other twice a day again! Awesome. Anyhow I need to make Adrianna practice her cello now. Her lesson is in an hour and a half.

I thought we were supposed to relax on summer vacation? [Jul. 21st, 2010|03:51 pm]
adrimybaby
Yeah not so much huh. I'm always busy!! There's always something to be done,or someone's children to be watched. I watch kids for a few different families. No usually all in the same week though. This week though. EVERY DAY. Tomorrow MArk and I are going to go get my mom to hang until Saturday. Seriously though, I need some time to myself or I am going to freak! NOthing against Mark or Adrianna or any of the many people that come over. I just haven't had much time to myself lately. I'm actually getting tired of hearing my own name! Because I hear it called... so often. The power was out for a day and a half. Some how I ended up babysitting for two people that day. I don't think I will be babysitting Adrianna's one litle friend anymore. She has issues. Serious issues. She doesn't do as she is told. She whines and complains. I really can't babysit a child that I cant control so no more. It just makes me want to pull my hair out and punt said child so that's not healthy. So no more now. They don't pay me anyway so It's not like I'm losing out on anything. Seriously though do you know how hard it is to babysit with no power? It was soooooo hot. "I want to watch tv" Well sorry kid that's too bad I don't have power. If you wanted to watch tv maybe I should have watched you at your house,where you have power." I have to come to realize that I do not indeed like all children,nope not at all. I only like the well behaved children. I have actually banned certain kids from coming into our house because they don't behave. In other news we have picked out Adrianna's cello and are about to order it. I have been watching her little friend Kyle a bit lately. He moved away when they were in kindergarten to the netherlands I think, which is where his mom is from. Now they live in France. They get along pretty well for the most part, they have little spats once in a while but not bad enough that I have to intervene. I think I actually heard Adrianna trying to explain what personal space is the other day! LOL I find this hilarious because maybe a month ago I had to explain personal space to her! I love her but I can NOT be hung on. I have always been this way I don't really like to be touched very much. I mean I'm ok with a hug but just people putting there hands on me or rubbing on me it really irritates me. Thank you very much stupid teenage boys of my past, you gave me a complex. It's really not that interesting of a story I just happened to have some boys middle school through high school that were REALLY persistent and wouldn't leave me alone. I was a big prude and didn't have a bf until I was 16 so I wanted nothing to do with it! I went to the water park the other day and was there for 6 hours. Needles to say I had sunburn. I had it on my face,arms, and boobs. Now I have... not sure I would call it a tan but it's as close as I get to having a tan. I have lots more freckles woo hoo! I needed more of those! My skin kind of gets brownish with a red tinge to it. I can never have nice bronzed skin, It's not in my dna to have it. I instead look kind of rosey.
LOL you can see the line around my neck from my swim suit. Not the clearest pic but it does show the sunburn a bit.

Adrianna had a lot of fun when her Grand parents were here from Minnesota Memorial day weekend. They will back in August. I saw my dad that weekend to, he was up her to get some more of his stuff to bring down to Florida with him. Oddly he bought my aunt Florence's old place in the old folks park that my grandma lives in during the winter. Adrianna has been going nuts for the bubbles and sidewalk chalk lately.




She has been swimming quite a bit this summer. She reminds me so much of myself as a child it's almost scary. It was very hard to get me out of the water when it was around. My dad used to call me his little water bug. He used to also call me Sarah Jane.... No my middle name is not Jane its Elaine. When I was really little he used to call me possum pie. Also not sure why.

Summer has been going by fast. We planned on going camping last weekend. IT didn't work out with the power outage. SO I set the tent up in the backyard. I was pretty determined that we were going to sleep in a tent so we did. In like two weeks we have the family camping trip. Fun fun fun! I so Want to Go see Rasputina but they are playing this music festival and I don't reckonize any other band on the roster so I think I will have to sit this one out. :( When I went to see a place to bury strangers. Funny story. Adrianna asks what are you doing mama? I said I'm getting ready to go see A Place To Bury Strangers." She gets this worried look on her face and asks " Mama, why do you need a place to bury strangers?" I started cracking up. I said no honey its a band, i'm going to a concert. She says OOH! can I come? I told her I was sorry but she had to sit this one out. They have the rep for being one of the loudest bands in New York. I wore plugs, it was a good idea! Anyhow I go to this show and the first two bands just completely sucked. I mean the one band actually made me angry. They were using all sorts of different instruments one of which was a violin but she was completely playing it wrong and it just sounded scratchy and horrible. I had a hanibal lector moment. I seriously wanted to hurt her. A place to bury strangers was great,openers sucked. Which is why I cant see myself paying $37.50 to go see a bunch of bands that I dont know that could completely blow and have to wait forever to see Rasputina. The Birthday Massacre was here the other day. Adrianna really wanted to go to the show really badly, They are her favorite band. I had money too but Mark said no it was on too short of notice. Hey man it's not my fault the email I ended up getting was the day before the show! Suckage but next time they come to town I have to take her. I mean, they're her favorite band right? She loves Chibi, she was a little obsessed with her in kindergarten. Anyhow I need to go see what kind of mischeif these kids are into.... it's way to quiet,it's never a good sign.

I'm not going to say I am having the worst week ever [May. 14th, 2010|02:05 pm]
adrimybaby
I think if I were to do that I may jinx myself and truthfully I had a much worse week in Febuary of last year. THAT was my worst week ever. You can't do anything worse to me then what I went through then, bar none. It still none the less has been some what traumatic. So at the beginning of the week day one it is raining and raining and raining. I have laundry to do as always and I run down stairs in my socks to put the stuff in the washing machine. As I hit the carpet I feel wet on my feet and think oh man. Then as I round the bar downstairs I step in it. What is it? A puddle of water and raw freaking sewage and toilet paper on my bathroom floor. I think to myself. Are you freaking kidding me? So I go upstairs and get a mop and a broom and a dust pan and a bucket. I come downstairs and fill this bucket with the hottest water I can put in it and a generous amount of bleach. I take it and dump it right on the floor in that hall and was able to get it to go down. I go over and I pulled up all this indoor outdoor brown carpet that is merely lieing on a tile floor and I started tearing it over to the side of the room that is dry. I get it all out and I go and get the bucket and keep pouring buckets upon buckets of this scalding hot water and bleach onto the floor. I get it all done and I see it. What is it? The next room that also has a drain in the floor is flooded too. How flooded. Let's put it this way. There was an actual piece of identifiable human feces on the floor along with much other feces and possibly a few pieces of cat shit and fyi. Our cat is too damn much of a chicken to go into the basement. Other Fyi, We never flush our cats crap down the toilet. It just doesn't happen. So basically we have someone elses sewage on our basement floor. I about cried because it had taken me about two hours to wash the other part of the basement. This took two hours more. I was so sleep deprived that I ended up sleeping through my alarm the next morning and having to bring her in late. Next morning it is pouring rain and there is thunder and lightning and I am a little more then freaked out to be holding this umbrella with it's rubber handle and metal frame. we get to school, explain the situation and they say hey, don't worry about it. Get Adrianna to class and tell the teacher and the teacher asks. Hey kids, how many of you guys had your basement flood last night and this morning? Three children raised her hands. She told me to go home and get some rest. FAT CHANCE. When I get home I see this huuuge puddle that is threatening to over run the street and see that the storm drain that is at the end of my neighbors driveway by our lawn is clogged. SO I run inside and grab the broom and try to start sweeping the leaves and tree seeds and all the crap the drain. I can't do it. It's pouring I run to the next door neighbors door and say will one of you boys please come help me get all the crap off of the storm drain? OUR DRIVEWAYS ARE FLOODING NOW!! So The one young man goes and throws on a black hoodie and runs out to the street with me and together with his rake and my broom we wear able to clear the crap from the drain and properly drain the street out front that was flooding. So now Finally next day, That being today and it is FRIDAY, Yay! I go drop off Adrianna at school and come back and find out Mark is back home. WEll it turns out he rode to work and the office door to where his cubicle is at is locked and he is not able to get in nor shower, he waits for a bit and texts the appropiate people and just goes home. On the way home he has some one randomly throw hot coffee on him on his bicycle. Get's home and a tree branch falls on his head. Of Course AFTER he has taken the Helmet off. I go to Wash some Dishes. Oh Look honey no running water. AWESOME! I really hope one of us doesn't have to take a big stinky crap. I go outside and see the men down the street digging up the street. I ask them. Are you the reason I don't have water right now? He says yes there was a water main break here. I say go figure.. like 2 days after my basement floods with sewage the water pipeline HAS to break like 5 houses down from me. I Then say ah well, Thanks for fixing it for me. I do appreciate that. Do you possibly know what time I may have water back. He said an hour or so. I say thank you sir and go back home. It was probably more like an hour and a half but it had to be on a day that I was already backed up with like 4 loads of laundry because I couldn't do it due to having to have the drains in the floor overflow. Then The Next day having to have the sewer company come out and snake out the line to the street. The Moral of The story is i guess. Water has really been a thorn in my side this week. WOW! I am glad it is Friday and I am just going to chill tonight. Adrianna is going to spend the night at her friends house. Mark and I are going to meet my good old pseudo Uncle Domininic at The Berkley Front tonight and it should be good times.He has been a good friend of my aunt MAry's and a good family friend since I was a kid. He reminds me of a human version of Tigger from Winnie the Pooh. Always good for a magic trick,a laugh,or even an intelligent conversation! The Real Question is though. DO you still hang upside down from trees MR. Crea?

The musings of a mad cat [Feb. 20th, 2010|05:47 am]
adrimybaby
[mood |contemplativecontemplative]

"If you don't know where you're going most any road will take you there."
SO true,so true. I've always had a fondness for the story of Alice in Wonderland. Ever since I was a child. I remember lying on the couch at my grandparents house watching it on tv for the very first time when I was five years old. I thought it was so strange but in the same sense something felt quite familiar about it. So many times in my life have I felt a lot like Alice in her Wonderland completely bewildered and amazed by the people around me and the events that have taken place. Curiouser and Curiouser indeed. I've had over a year to think about this. Tim Burton deciding to redo one of my favorite stories of all time,save for The Secret Garden of course. I didn't know what to think at first other then I really don't want him to screw this up. He is one of my favorite producer/directors of all time. I've loved his movies for ages. I think that all started with Beetlejuice. I liked the movie and the cartoon alike as a child. Alice in Wonderland though, that goes back further. I saw some of the first images of the movie months ago and I was horrified. I thought oh no... I'm going to hate it. After the previews of lately and finding out a bit more I think I am ok with it though. He isn't trying to change my beloved story, He's trying to add on to it. I have to give quite a sigh of relief. With all that in mind I am actually quite excited about it now. Adrianna had her friend Raven over yesterday and her,Adrianna, and I had quite a chat about it. First Raven spotted the Disney animated dvd on the table beside the love seat and say "oh! I love this movie!" I said"me too!" Adrianna seconded that. She say you know they are coming out with a live people version of it now." I said "yes I know." Adrianna gets all excited and says "I want to see it." The guy who did it,also did Nightmare Before Christmas and Corpse Bride! I bet you it's going to be REALLY GOOD." disney has certainly did their job promoting it because it seems the previews and sneak peeks have reached the first grade level. I think that it is going to turn out fine now. my favorite old story isn't going to be changed, just a few new chapters added. The Sci Fi channel has already done a mini series called Alice that had a similar "what if" type plot and it made me happy enough. This is Tim Burton we are talking about here. I think now we can only make improvement.

In two days time Mark and I filed over 7 years of paperwork. I DO NOT WANT to have to do that much ever again, Argh! so glad it is done and over with though. We are trying to get rid of so much stuff that is really not needed. When we move I want it to be a lot easier. We have other furniture/appliances to account for that can a pain in my back side in the place of all the stupid boxes of bs that we are getting rid of. With that said I feel very accomplished. Adrianna took a pick of me playing with Nellie the other day. She really is a senile old bag,she does sometimes drive me nuts waking me up crying in another room in the middle of the night. At 17 though, I think it is quite awesome that she will still play and will occasionally just rip across the house chasing phantom shadows or what ever she might be imagining.

Mt snot is finally starting to come out clear so I think my sinus infection is going away. Adrianna is close to cleaared up and I think Mark may be too. What is not clear is why Adrianna had this huge infected looking patch of eczema on her leg or why she didn't tell me about it. I know she remembers how horrible cellulitis was. I Also found something in her arm. A lump of sorts... I really don't think its cancer but it still made me feel all protective,then upset,then it made me not want anymore children for fear of passing on more genetic flaws. The Eczema is my fault, my dad has it. The lump,that is her dad. Him,his father,sister,and brother all have these random lumps in their bodies. Mark had a big one in his back and they biopsied it and it was benign. I don't know what they are right now but I would love to and if there was some how any way for me humanly possible to prevent her from getting anymore. I would love to do that. Ugh, I don't want her to have to deal with a biopsy but she may have to. I hate anyone hurting her,ugh ugh ugh! With all that said spring needs to come soon so at least the poor kids eczema will get better. With all that said,it's my bed time.
