I would like to announce another new change in my life. I have been looking for a religion that fits me for quite a while now because Christianity just does not fit me well. I have discovered Wicca and after doing some research and soul searching have decided that this is right for me. It fits me very well since I feel very close to nature (except spiders) and have always been into witchcraft and such. With Wicca I can still celebrate holidays too. There are even some new holidays that I can celebrate. The next Wiccan sabbat is Yule on December 21st to celebrate the Winter Solstice. I am unable to make an altar since I am unprepared for it however I will be setting up and altar for Imbolc which is February 2nd. This sabbat is in honor of Brighid, the Goddess of Fire. It is also to celebrate that we are halfway through winter and spring will be coming soon. We will soon have new life growing in nature once Imbolc comes! When it gets closer to Imbolc I will post pictures of my altar. Well, Ta ta for now.

Big last couple of days. I have a new babysitting charge. My sisters middle son now comes everyday now. He's been pretty good but his younger brother has been a little rowdy since he started coming. I also set up the Christmas tree. It's very cute. Today I got my first paycheck for babysitting. Now I can get Christmas presents. Yeah! I also got some papers from JCC. I have advisement on January 13th. Yeah. Corey has a project on Haiti that he needs to work on now. TTFN Ta ta for now.

Spent the day applying for scholarships. Yeah. One of the scholarships is
. I can't wait to work on this. It will be fun. I like the project scholarships better since they involve more than just filing a application. Better get to work on my scholarships. Wish me luck that they will pay for my school. TTFN Ta-ta for now.

On November 16th, I took the placement test for JCC. It was easier than I thought. I can take regular classes for math and English. I also don't have to take any reading classes. Yeah! The only problem I had on test day was getting to and from the test. I had help getting to the room by a campus cleaning lady but coming out I got lost. I was scared. It was dark, rainy, and I had no idea where I was and nothing looked familiar. It felt like I was in a labyrinth. My mom eventually found me and got me home. Phew! This Sunday I will be going on a campus tour so this won't be happening again. After that, classes begin in January. :)

A strange thing happened today with my mom's blanket. This is a blanket that is two pieces of fleece fabric tied together. My mom had was the blanket and placed in the dryer. When she pulled the blanket out, it had a big bump in it. She then realized that all the clothes from the dryer were missing. They were inside that blanket! The blanket was also all scrunched up and hard to get into. It had to be cut open to get the clothes out. When we finally got the blanket straight, it was inside out. We pulled the clothes out of the blanket and tried to find out how this happened. We could not find any holes in the blanket that was big enough to fit our hand in let alone sweaters. Spooky, huh? TTFN ta ta for now.

Had to go to town today to finalize the paperwork to babysit for my sister. Bus was late to pick me up in the village. I got up town, did what needed doing but the bus was not scheduled to come for another half an hour. Wandered around town wanting for the bus. When the time finally came, I saw the bus but he had his turning signal on. I went to catch the bus and he drove straight!! Needless to say, I missed the bus and saved 2 bucks. Then Corey was late getting here because he went to his cousins' house. I was not happy since he was half an hour late. Right now I am listening to podcasts and playing Frontierville. Anyone else play Frontierville? I finally finished my Sunflower quest.Now I am trying to finish my toll booth. TTFN Ta ta for now.

Today was a pretty busy day. I had to go uptown to finishing applying for Medicaid. Now I can get sick and not have to worry about the bill. When I got home, I saw that I had received something in the mail from JCC. It was my acceptance letter. Whoo hoo! I'll be starting in January. I'll be taking the placement test in 12 days. The letter says Medical Office Technology is my major but I will change that when I register as per what was told to me by the admission office. My major will be Biotechnology. The letter says Medical Office Technology but I will change that when I register as per what was told to me by the admission office. I sure hope I don't have to dissect something cute. I also babysat Gavin today instead of Corey and Kyle since their mother didn't work today. Tomorrow is a half a school day and cleaning day! Hopefully I will have a couple of little workers named Fin and Gav. Since it will be Friday, Terrell and Trenton will be coming too. Fun times. TTFN Ta ta for now.

I officially hate Halloween. For 3 years in a row, something horrible has happened on or around Halloween. 2008: My last dog, Katie dies right before Halloween. 2009: I got so horribly sick that I spent a week in bed. That week included Halloween. 2010: The worst of all! First off, my oldest cat Violet has a huge tumor on her stomach again so we know she won't be with us much longer. Then this morning my chinchilla Nathaniel was found dead in his cage. It came so suddenly. He was fine yesterday and then something must have happened last night because now he is gone. I was going to go trick or treating today but I am just not in the mood anymore. The picture posted is one of the last taken of my baby boy. It was only 6 days ago that he had his last photo shoot. Miss you forever, baby boy.

We had the party and it was a hit. The boys all liked the games and their treat bags. The games we played were:
Toilet paper game where they teamed up and wrapped one team member up like a mummy. Terrell wrapped Trenton and they won.
Bean bag toss. Terrell got one bean bag in the bucket so he won.
The donut game. They tried to eat the donut faster than the others without using their hands. Trenton won this game. This is Finley and he would not stand still for the pic.
They bobbed for apples. Finley was unable to reach so Terrell had helped him out by picking him up. This is a pic of Corey the dragon.
We also had a stuffed animal hunt where some stuffed animals were hidden and the boys looked throughout the house for them. Each stuffed animal had a numbered tag that matched a prize that the boy who found the animal would get.
After games was time for the family photo of all the boys together.
Terrell is a vampire, Kyle is a ninja, Elijah is a ninja, Trenton is a vampire, Finley is Harry Potter, and Corey is a dragon from How to Train a Dragon. Gavin was not able to come since he was in NYC but he will be back for trick or treating. I'll be taking more pics before trick or treating. TTFN Ta ta for now.
Hi and welcome to my new blog! This is where I will post about what's new about me and cool things I may find. I will post lots of photos because I love taking photos. Tonight will be the Halloween party so I will have lots of pictures of that. I know that we will have Harry Potter, 2 vampires, a dragon, and I can't remember what Kyle will be. I will be Elizabeth Swann from POTC3. I made really cute treat bags that all the boys will be getting. They have a witch, skeleton, monster, black cat, creepy ghost girl, Frankenstein, and his bride.
