safe haven laws

Filed under: in the news,random ramblings — jessica31876 @ 9:20 am

This morning I was watching Good Morning America and see a segment in which a woman is talking about how much she loves her son and how she would do anything for him. It goes on to say how he was troubled…lying, stealing, getting suspended from school etc and how she was at the end of her rope and had done everything she could to get him help and so as a “last resort:” she drove across the country from Georgia to Nebraska and left her child at one of these “safe havens” in Nebraska. Well her child was obviously not an infant and had developed a bond with his mother and even if he was troubled most likely loved/trusted her. And she abandoned him!! Away from family and friends and home. How can a woman raise a child and after 12 or 13 years leave him and walk away? Just thinking about having to do that to any one of my children literally makes my heart ache. I mean really how can you carry a child inside of your body, feed/diaper/clothe that child, watch him/her grow and then just take that child and drop them off like they are an animal. I do not like any of these laws which were created to protect newborn babies from abandonment because I feel every child deserves the right to know where they came from when they choose to find out and these laws make that possibility impossible because there is no questions asked. Ughhh the whole situation to me is just disgusting.


this week so far and a few new layouts October 28, 2008

This weekend was kinda a blur. It always seems to fly by so quickly and by Monday I am wondering where the time went. We did alot though so maybe that is why the time always seems to fly by. On Saturday we made a trip to this lake where the deer are always supposed to be out and they are really tame so I was kinda hoping to get some pictures. However that didnt happen because the deer were not anywhere to be seen. Might make the trip really early in the morning next weekend though. They are sure to be there then. After that long drive we headed over to Old Town and checked out some of the cars. Didnt stay for the cruise so we probably missed alot of them. There were mostly old Chevy’s so I was not to upset we left early LOL. Only one old Dodge and two AMC’s. So after that we just headed home and watched a movie.

Sunday came and we headed to the mall and checked out some rings because Crystal wants a class ring but she doesn’t want a ring that looks like a class ring and the ones the school offered were super expensive. WHile she is paying for it herself I am trying to teach her to shop around to get her best deal. The class ring from the company teh school is contracted with was 450 dollars. The one she picked at the jewelry store was 120. BIG DIFFERENCE!!! She was thrilled. We went to the park afterwards and took some pictures and walked around. Had a reallly good time there. Later that night after we had all went to bed Nick got up and was obviously sleepwalking. I was asleep on the couch and he started to walk outside!!! I am absolutely terrififed to think of what might have happened if I had not woken up when I did to stop him.

Monday Johnny took the day off of work and we went to Leu Gardens. It is this really super pretty garden near us that has the largest rose garden in the U.S. Ohhhh how I wish I could live in the middle of that place. It is so beautiful!! I wish I took better photos to show just how gorgeous it is!!

Today was pretty uneventful didnt really do much but TRY to scrap a layout. Just one…I have not done anything in a couple days. Ive tried but everything just SUCKS. I did manage to finish one but I dont know if I really like it.

FInally here are my finished layouts since my last posting. I did two versions of this one:

Done with Cori Gammon’s kit Trendy Pop


Done with Lauren Grier and Shawna Clingerman’s My Way or the Highway


Done with Traci Reed’s Preppy Autumn

I went out this evening for the first time in like months with my husband and the first concert in years. The last concert we went to was to see Doug Supernaw years ago. I mean we have seen so no-name bands here and there but this was the first big name person I have seen. He put on a pretty good show.  I had a really good time. I wanted to get a full song for Crystal but it was just to crowded to get it. I did get a few pictures. Here they are:



Saturday outing…

Filed under: photos,random ramblings,scrap stuff/layouts — jessica31876 @ 3:46 pm

We went to pick up the kids at their grandparents this morning and headed over to a car show in Baldwin Park. It was a pretty nice day but kinda still on the warm side. Crystal called her boyfriend to come with us and he met us on the way there and she rode the rest of the way with him. It was the first time we have met him and he seems like a nice kid. Alot better then her last boyfriend who never wanted to go anywhere and wouldnt look at either me or her dad and rarely spoke to any of us. Saw some nice cars at the show and they had a doggie costume contest/parade. This little chiuaua won who was dressed like a bumble bee. There was a beautiful Great Pyrenees there as well as an English Sheepdog. Ohhh how I love those two dogs. Both have long fur and are stocky dogs. The Great Pyrenees was HUGE!!! Like a small horse big LOL. So watched the parade and then went and looked at more cars. Took lots of pictures. Here are a few…


layouts today…

Filed under: random ramblings,scrap stuff/layouts,ticked off — jessica31876 @ 12:40 am

Well I have a few layouts to post but first just thought Id blog a little. I was hoping Johnny would come home today and tell me they got his supplement all straightened out but he didnt. The supplement is for a car he fixed and his boss has been trying to get paid on that job since September. It is kind of depressing because he only flagged 15 hours this week. Just to give you an idea he averages about 11 dollars an hour 😦 Really sucks. So then after Johnny gets home my sister calls me and she starts going on about her lovely ex-husband. She seems to think he is this awful person but really she is kinda neurotic herself. This time she is mad that he picked up their daughter from school at 10:30 instead of at her release time because he wanted to do something for her birthday. She said she is going to report him for contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Whatever…she is just sooo petty sometimes its no wonder they split up. She says her daughter does not want to talk to his dad…she told me she loves them both but she is tired of being questioned and them arguing all the time. Ughhh just really frustrating listening to that when Im already stressed out over my own issues. I mean if she had a legetimate complaint I would be more then willing to listen and maybe even offer advice but I am so tired of listening to her complain about every single thing he does. She chose to marry him and have a child with him so really she should just get over it. OK so enough of my rants LOL here are my layouts.
