Give Mac a Chance

So Robert and I came across a sweet English Bulldog that needs surgery for his cateracs. Poor guy. We gave our donation and plan on giving more because his surgery is so expensive and his parents are young like us so they cant be expected to just have the money hanging out in their pockets to use. I know that if Oscar ever needs surgery we wouldn't be able to pay for it and would hope some kind caring people would help us out. If anyone is interested in learning more about Mac and his life, or even interested in donating towards his surgery this is his blog. http://theworldaccordingtomac.blogspot.com/

New Car and New Job

So I now have a car of my own. I'ts not amazing but i'ts great for the dogs, and that's what matters. Plus I got offered a job at Forever 21 as a sales associate. Haven't done retail before but it will pay the bills and I get a discount at a store I shop at pretty often and I don't have to promise to stay with them forever.

2nd Failed Exam

Since I started school this last summer I thought I was doing really well, but these last 2 exams I have had I failed. I cant fail another one. What is wrong with me? The last exam was 77 questions and the one before was 98 questions, so bloody long campared to the previous exams. This is making me feel so stupid, plus I hate reading and long exams mean long chapters. SO difficult. I cant concentrate with noise and I cant concentrate without noise. I am officially loosing my mind. I better pass.

Sleep Deprived and Migraines

So for the last week or 2 I have been waking up so tired and disoriented. The sun shines through the window earlier since daylight savings ended and it wakes me up too early. So not fun. And the rest of the day I am like some slob walking around like a zombie with migraines.

Migraines are the absolute worst. I have been getting them since I was 11 or 12 and after my car accident they got even worse. I called a medical study institute about joining their migraine study and they said they couldnt help me because I get more than 8 migraines a month. What's a girl got to do to get her migraines taken care of. I've used the migraine meds and they didnt work. Now I'm on Naproxen which is an anti-inflamatory and is used more for arthiritis. It helps a little but I cant take it as often as I get the migraines. I dont want to use any pain meds I just want the migraines cured.

I watched an Unsolved Mysteries episode last week about a woman who got a migraine so bad she hemoraged and forgot 13 years of her life. Call me paranoid but I don't want to loose my memory more than I already have. Not to mention that chocolate and gluten set my migraines off as well. Who in their right mind doesn't need chocolate?

I am a "Mormon" and a victim of a hate crime


So this prop 8 has gotten out of control. I have not spoken about it because before I was on the fence. Protesting is a right people have, I wasn't letting it bother me, but anthrax being sent to religious temples is taking your voice too far. That is considered a hate crime. I am not ok with hate crimes towards anyone, race, gender, religion, or sexual orientation. I have always stood up for those being discriminated against. Well not my buttons have been pushed and I am officially offended. Those people out there who are taking "No on 8" too far I have news for them. Those people are giving the ones I love a bad rap and the Mormons who did vote yes on 8 only consist of 2% of the vote. I am seriously outraged. Those of you who know me know that I dont get angered easily and know that I understand both sides of Prop 8. Well now I am angered, I do not enjoy being threatened. What if I was at the temple today? What if someone you or I know and love were at the temple today and were infected? What if this were to happen to anyone who voted yes? Physical threats are not acceptable. I do not wish vengence by my own hand but I do wish vengence by the hand of the law. I do not know how else to describe my anger and hurt through words.

Halloween!!!!!
































I love Halloween! Especially the dressing up part. It's the one day out of the year you can be a kid again and dress up as whom ever you want. I wish we could still trick or treat, but people would take one look at us and turn us down for sure. We need to borrow someones kid so we have an excuse to get candy.

Anyways, it was really fun. We first stopped by some guy from the singles ward house to watch a movie he had made, but we were too late, then we went to a haunted house set up on the East end of Simi. I didn't go in, my stomache and anxiety has gotten worse as I have gotten older, plus there were people dressed up as clowns and that brings back my night terrors from when I was younger. Then we went to a little party, they had a "dance off" and a cute dog. Basically the dog was all I cared about. Socializing still makes me a bit dizzy.

I was Red Ridding Hood, Robert was the Wolf Man, Melissa was a witch, Emily was a German beer maid(without the beer) Angie was a Glenda the good witch of the West, Whitney was a Hershey Kiss, and Brenna was a hotdog. Quanah was Jack Skelington and Dad and Shelly were the Tin man and the Wicked witch of the East. Also Dad and I totally decked out the house. We were the most decked out house on the block! Go us!

Trunk or Treat




Well we finally decided how to decorate our trunk for the ward trunk or treat. Dia de los Muertos!!!! In English, Day of the Dead. It's an old Aztec celebration to honor the lives of loved ones who had passed on. So we found this huge skull with cool decor all over it at Target and we used it to hold our candy, I made tissue paper flowers and papel picado(template cut out banner) and we had our calaca(skeleton) Eduardo sitting on top of the trunk. It was fun. We ran out of candy fast so I started to give away the flowers.
