20th-Jul-2010 09:38 pm - Art museum



Went to the art museum in Shreveport with Carlos, Missy, cydmarie, and missys son. It was extremely hot outside but we had a good time and took lots of pictures. The trail behind the museum was perfect for pictures. Baby Carlos was at daycare so we didn't get any pictures with him in them. Maybe once he gets older and will stand still for pictures we can take him.

More PicturesCollapse )

I took my mom to the doctors this morning. This states Medicaid is awful. Not to mention her appointment was a 9 am and we weren't even seen until like 1130am. Just ridiculous!!!!

20th-Jul-2010 01:16 am - Today
Nothing interesting happened today. Me and Carlos took baby Carlos and cydmarie to the park and kicked around the soccer ball. Baby Carlos is getting so big I swear he thinks he is grown. Went over to my parents house my mom isn't getting better. I'm taking her to the doctors tomorrow. Just another boring day...

18th-Jul-2010 07:52 pm - Horse races
Went to the horse races for the first time today. I really don't get the betting process. I lost but Carlos and his sister won. Maybe I'll get better luck next time I'm really not a gambler tho.  I think I learned from my Biloxi experience back the day that i shouldn't gamble. I remember when JoeJoe brought a scratch off ticket when we were dating back in like 2000 and he lost control spending all his winnings plus some on scratch off's. Gambling can be very dangerous and I might be adventurous at times but not when it comes to my money. 

So today I learned that Carlos doesn't like to be called refrigerator ham some nickname his family gave him back in the day. I teased him a little about it today and he seemed to get very irritated with me about it. I can't blame him tho, he knows some of the things that get under my skin but if he talked to my brothers he could have found out the real things that make me actually angry. Although I have only been angry -- that angry that scares even me twice in my life. Joe and Frank are the only ones that have ever seen it. 

Speaking of Frank I miss my brothers. I spoke to Kissteefer a few weeks back. Looks like he is going to lose the house. i know he thinks he knows what he is doing but it does hurt when I just got done trying to bail him out during my last deployment. Frank is still with Bonnie and both of them still don't have jobs. I just don't understand the non employment status-- I have never been unemployed and if I was I probably wouldn't be able to sit still I would always be out looking for a job,

Baby Carlos was so tired today he started throwing temper tantrums at the boardwalk. We went down there and Carlos bought his little sister a dress from Papaya. It was a cute dress, I would have liked to buy a new outfit but to be honest I don't need anymore clothes and I don't really go anywhere these days to need a bigger selection of clothes. I feel bad Carlos actually needs some more clothes money is just really tight right now.

We bought baby Carlos a new outfit from Carters. I'm really getting baby fever I was looking at all the little baby clothes out of the corner of my eye. I think i'm ready for children but i'm trying to just be content with having just baby Carlos in our lives. I love that little boy to death! I'm gonna be emotional when he goes back to his moms. I haven't really told Carlos about the level of baby fever I have been getting. Were just playing things day by day right now and he's deploying in May, it's a conversation that we can have after things progress and after his deployment is done. 

Carlos deploying doesn't make me nervous. It's strange I actually have trust in this man without questions. I am going to miss him and probably be a bit lost when he leaves. I haven't had sleeping problems the last couple of months but I'm sure when he deploys the sleeping problems are going to come back. The one thing that sucks is as soon as he gets back from his deployment I'm due for orders. We have had the conversation about what will happen between us, however it's a while away and anything can happen. We both know how each other feels so I'm not tripping to much. 
18th-Jul-2010 04:08 am - PAST and Present

Don't hold on to your past, there's a reason it's not coming back. Somethings you can not fix things in life. Cherish your memories that were good in the past because sometimes theres a reason why the past isn't in your future. Pray for your future because everything in life is a gift from God. Life is made of crossroads the true friends make it through the crossroads and the others take a different turn. Don't be upset if the turn they make doesn't inculde you in their life be happy for them if they are happy. Don't struggle to push your values or ideas upon someone because they have to find their own way. Although I struggle to figure out what friends stay I remember no matter what to stay happy in life. Life is too short to dread on mistakes and try to fix things that are impossible to fix. I'm grateful for the true friends I have and the man I adore! Make sure to surround yourself with positive happy people because at the end of the day laughter will heal more then negative moods. All I can do is pray for others happiness and ask the Lord to help them through their struggles. Happiness belongs to the self-sufficient! Although i'm self-sufficient life is even better when you have someone to share happy moments with.
17th-Jul-2010 07:53 pm - Sci-port in Shreveport

Went out to Sci-port in Shreveport. It was aight not like the Science museum's that I have been to in the past in comparision it was a disappointment, but it was nice to get out for a few hours. It was funny we walked in was going through the whole lil museum type atmosphere and was just about done and the lady came up to us and told us that we didn't pay admission. HELLO the sign was the wrong way that said "without a wristband you can't go past this section". Long story short we didn't pay once we found out there was an admission we had already seen everything and left. FREE fun is always night.

The rain ruined my orginal plans of taking Carlos, his sister, and lil Carlos out to the horse races or to the water park. I felt horriable that ever since Carlos sister came up to the states from the islands she has been stuck in the house. Tomorrow I'm off work so I'm thinking that we will go down to the horse races and then catch some kinda of outdoor experience either the highest mountain in the state of Louisiana or to the Art Museum park that is supposed to be beautiful. I'm trying to get a little experience out of this state. It seems like the only thing that you can do here is gamble at the casinos or drink. I feel bad for the kids that are raised here there really isn't alot of things for them to get into. There is an arcade with go carts in Bossier City, Louisiana that isn't bad, but other than that the only other thing here is a bowling alley and a skating rink. I grew up with Henry Ford Museum a 10 minute drive away. That museum is probably one of the best experiences I had in my life! It's amazing!

On another note I can't believe my chicka is leaving tomorrow I was all teary eye'd earlier when she came to the house. I love the military but at times it is just so sad when either your leaving or your loved ones are leaving for an extendend amount of time. It hurts to know that a couple months after Christy gets back that Carlos will be leaving. Hopefully I don't get deployed again for a while. It would be hard after them being away for so long for me to turn around and deploy. Life of the military tho. Holdin it down at work now.

17th-Jul-2010 04:15 am - Back in school
Well I've been back in classes for a couple of months now. Let me tell you once you have been out of school for awhile it is difficult to get back into the grind of school work. Why I choose a career in criminal justice is still beyond me. I have this fantastical idea that once I'm done with the Military I will pursue a career that will be beneficial to the community.. i.e. juvenile probation officer or social worker. So bottom line is that I would pick a career that I make absolutely no money in doing and on top of it no guarantee that I will actually help anyone. HMMMMMMM we'll see what happens I'm always doomed for having a good heart.
16th-Jul-2010 07:42 am - Lil Carlos with his shades

Lil Carlos found these and has been walking around the house with them on. Doesn't he look all stylish with his shades and jordans on.


15th-Jul-2010 11:45 pm - Tyla's Birthday

Today was Tyla's Birthday! It's remarkable how fast children grow up. I got her 2 pairs of flip flops and a jope rope. She's getting so big! Here's a couple of photo's from the lil gathering we had at my house. PhotosCollapse )
15th-Jul-2010 04:35 am - APA FORMAT
I don't know if I have stressed enough about how much I can't stand APA formatting. It's ridiculous. Who really wants to read something with a whole bunch of (blah, 2008) (author, year) ect...  in the middle of a paragraph. Wouldn't it be so much easier to just add footnotes for where you got information from. Ok, I'm not a very good writer I understand this however their are alot worse writers out there then me and if I'm struggling with APA i'm sure their papers are a train wreak. Ok, I'm done venting.

14th-Jul-2010 05:39 am - Midterms 1/2 way point through CJ227
So I had midterms this week and yes of course my lazy butt waited until the last possible moment to take my exam. Carlos made fun of me cuz when I finished the exam I threw a fit like a 5 year old because I received an 88 percent on my exam. I was very upset with myself. I wanted to get an A but at least it didn't change my GPA too much. That's why they say live and learn. I really need to actually study in these courses I tend on brain dumping the information as soon as i'm finished with the course.

12th-Jul-2010 11:42 pm - Working Out
Worked out with my girl Melissa today at the gym. Oh my goodness I'm so out of shape. I worked on lifting chest and triceps. I could only use 15 lb weights and then we ran. I really need to get back into the grind of working out again. Plus I'm looking a little chunky these days and need to tighten some areas back up.
12th-Jul-2010 11:37 pm - Phone call with Travis
So Travis wanted to talk to me today about what happended between us and about future friendship. This convo was not really interesting at all. He seems a little lost in life. I feel bad for him but at the same time I really don't. I went through again the problems we had in our relationship and why we broke up. Seems like he's still a little confused. He completely blames himself. Which I feel bad for him for that because it takes two to make a relationship work he was trying to give 150% and every bit more he gave the less I put into the relationship. The controlling personality he developed pushed me further away and when he had his little convo about sleeping with some girl I realized I could never spend my life in a relationship I was a 100% happy in. I was happy at tiimes but I was never that head over heals happy it was more of I had a good friend in my life. Gosh just looking back our so called relationship was miserable. He was so picky about how a relationship was supposed to work. I couldn't believe how he acted when it came to Tyla. It's strange how people act in relationships he went a little physco at times but I knew that he did love me tho. Before we ever got together he was the best friend anyone could ever ask for. He was always there for me through thick and thin. If I needed someone to talk to I could always call him, if I was down he knew exactly how to cheer me up, he was the one friend I didn't have to worry about trying to take advantage of me...ect.... But he was the one friend that always wanted more and I eventually gave it a try and that was a HUGE mistake. But things happen for a reason and end for a reason.

I do miss his friendship and his family at times. It's hard when you end a relationship and your close with the persons family. When his young sisters asked what happened it was hard to explain it to them because the last thing you do is trash someone to their siblings. I rather of looked like the bad person then dare trash Travis to his two sisters. I took alot of crap when I called the relationship quits... It would be extremely difficult to be his friend after he went off on me after we broke up.

When I finished my convo with Travis. I told Carlos about what he wanted to talk to me about. Carlos wasn't really fond of the idea of me and Travis becoming friends again. As a matter of fact Carlos told me to tell Travis that he said that we couldn't be friends anymore. Travis was my best friend for a long time but once we went over the line of friendship it is hard to go back to having the same time type of frienship. And to be honest i'm not sure If I would even what to be friends with him and on top of it if I was to try to maintain a friendship with him it would probably become a problem in my current relationship if he was to start anything with Carlos.
10th-Jul-2010 06:49 pm - Little Carlos and bowling
Took baby Carlos bowling today and he threw a fit. He was fine and then all of a sudden freaked out. When he's happy he's happy but when he's upset the WHOLE world knows I was just a little embrassed at the bowling alley when he freaked out. anyways heres pictures when he was being good.

8th-Jul-2010 05:34 am - Discussion Board Unit 4

This is this weeks discussion board question in my criminal procedures class.

Many countries do not conduct a trial when addressing legal issues; as such, the American legal system is unique in this respect. Please discuss your thoughts on the role of the trial jury and whether this is a positive or negative aspect of our system of justice.
