Nov 30th: Today my street became a "crime scene". When I tried to get home tonight, there is police tape blocking the end of my block.. after sitting there for 30 mins finally the cop talked to me (with my drivers lic for proof I lived here) I had to turn around and go a different way and come into my street thru a back direction... I know that doesn't make sense I live on a "U" street... it doesn't go anywhere.
Anyway.. My Broward Bunch, if you see the story about the "aunt" who stabbed a little 12-14 year old austic nephew in both eyes and then stabbed herself i nthe eyes and no one reported anything for 10 hours.. in Lauderhill.. that is at the end of my street. No one really knows that family.. you know it is one of those families where everyone is very weird and you stay away from them. They are all very "not normal". I will put the piece from the paper as they know it now in my comments. and add what I know about the situation in posts.
Attention all Bloggers: Friday, November 30th.
Our friend, Rob "Spetrm" is having a baby; well rather his wife is actually having the baby. It's a boy and due Dec 20th but they don't think she is going to make it that long. So if you get a chance drop by his winter blog and leave him a post. He just now found out about the baby shower last night! And he hasn't been by his blog yet this morning so will he be surprised. It is their first baby and they are so excited..
To clarify the Baby Shower is in Spetrm's Blog today.
And after today I am 6 months Smoke and Nicotine Free!
Still a challenge and I still think about wanting a cig from time to time..but getting a little easier. I understand it will take a year before I am really out of the woods.
