  1. School Is Starting To Do Something

    N. 1) Even if you do file a complaint you will still not be able to get a copy of the tape. It will go directly from the school into police custody as it is evidence. N. 2) Any case you think you have against those girls is now null and void because none of their parents were present. The fact that you were on the phone talking to these girls show favoritism N. 3) Chey ... HorseCity is not in the habit of editing others post but in this case what ColeenLmac posted (she rufused to edit) was so out of line we were left with no choice. Paul
  2. Marriage

    Statistically marriages where both or either party are under the age of 25 have a 75% chance of ending in divorce and from what I have seen of all of my friends that got married before 25, none of them lasted. Marriages that happen if one of the parties is under 21 have an even greater chance to fail as they don't have the opportunity to sow their wild oats. A couple of decades ago it was the norm for people to get married young and a greater percentage of marriages lasted then. I personally do not think anyone under the age of 25 should get married because they don't have a brain in their heads. I was over 25 when I got married, hubby was 5 days shy of his 30th birthday and I know that I connect with him deeper than I did with any of my other boyfriends. Having the extra years to be wild and crazy without having to answer to anyone for my actions allowed me to mature and actually allow myself to become "domesticated".
  3. What Are You Driving?

    I don't have any pictures, mainly because I don't care about vehicles. We have a 2007 Dodge Ram Bighorn edition that has 38"s and an 8" lift with just about everything you can put on it. A 1998 Subaru Forester that we bought from the MIL, it's done pretty well except the starter went out. The toy is a 1970-ish Jeep CJ7 that is all kitted out for 4 wheeling, not a penny was spared on it (it's also for sale and has some really unique things on it). Hubby made a quad trailer out of a boat trailer so we can take the quads places now. I have an '06 Suzuki LTZ-400 that has everything that a quad should have on it except for a longer swing arm. Hubby has an '07 Yamaha Raptor 700 and he's been slowly customizing it from stock. When I graduate I'm going to buy myself an Audi Q7 sport package just because I have never had a nice or new car.
  4. Back From The Ren Fest

    I'm also a Stewart, I recognized the tartan before you even said that Jow was wearing Royal Stewart. I love Ren fairs, but there isn't one that is anywhere near where I live. I did go to the huge one in WI one summer since my cousin is a big Ren fan and dresses up, complete with real sword, every year for it.
  5. Uh-oh, I Think We're Skrewded!

    It's cheaper to have the tank pumped than pay for the damage that a backed up septic tank causes. Hubby and I had to move twice in 2 months because the spetic tank at our rental house backed up into the basement, which is where our bedroom was. No one except for Serve Pro would come out to clean it up, the had to remove all the carpet, vinyl, furniture and dry wall from the floor to 2' up the walls. It ended up costing the owners well over $5,000 just to have the cleaning done and that didn't include any of the repairs on the septic unit or the house. Hubby and I lived with the in laws for 7 1/2 weeks while we dealt with the issues and having to wait to move into our new house. Typically septic tanks have an alarm on them that will be triggered when they are full. We have dealt with septic issues multiple times, the first time the pump on the tank was broken and the other times there were roots growing into the pipes that connected the house to the tank. Needless to say, I have been trying to get rid of a sinus infection since june that was caused by the grey water backing up into the house.
  6. The Trouble With

    I'm just going to point out that as human beings, we judge a person more on first impressions than on who a person is on the inside. Daphne has been given NUMEROUS chances to be genuine and we have all held our tongues until now. I'm happy that people are finally calling her out, and you know what, she deserves it! Also as human beings we are given the right to each have our own opinions, you are not entitled to take anyone's away! Now, will someone pass the **** popcorn and get me a beer?
  7. Ok...i Need Makeup Help...

    I don't necassarily agree with sticking to one color group to play up eyes, it's mostly in the eyeliner/mascara that makes eyes pop. I'm very fair with red hair and blue eyes, I never go with what is recommended for eye color and just do whatever color I feel like. There are two colors that I have found that play up almost any eye color and those are a pinky gold and white. Because those are both relatively neutral they look good on any skin tone and also highlight the eyes. Using white eyeshadow or a pencil in both the inner corners and outer corners of the eye makes your eyes look more open and awake, I like Mr.Frosty by benefit for that as it is a pencil that goes on easily. Using eyeliner is kind of a difficult thing for those that are not used to it. You need a newly sharpened eyeliner pencil that has been warmed up so it goes on easier, also doing it with short dashes helps so that it stays as close to the lash line as possible. I discovered that it is easier for me to use a brush and powder liner (mixed with water or visine to make it liquid) than a pencil because it is much easier to control the pressure on the lid. I prefer to use brushes over sponge tipped applicators because of that fact. Also using an eyeshadow primer helps keep color in place and make more vibrant, Stay, Not Stray by benefit is one of my favorites. Finally finishing with a good mascara is important after going thru all the trouble of putting on eye makeup worth it. The best ones have oversized rubber fingers on them and are hourglass shaped, Buxom Lash by bare minerals has both and it tends to last much longer than cheaper mascaras. I get all of my make up from www.sephora.com the prices are more than drug store make up but it's worth it. If you go into one of their stores or to a department store counter you can get a professional to do your makeup without having to pay for it and they can give you great ideas about colors and different techniques.
  8. Prayers Needed

    I feel so badly for you, and Johnathan, and Dayne, And the families. It makes you realize how everything you think is so wrong and horrible is trivial. I saw the picture of the cross and started crying, this is just too sad. Too many lives cut short, too many people passing away right now. Prayers for everyone [Angel] [Angel] [Angel] [Angel]
  9. I Just Need Someone

    I sat down and had a talk with hubby last friday. I told him that doing everything I am in a day is tearing me up and that I need his help to be able to maintain everything that I am. So Saturday while I wrote another thesis (which has also been killing me) he cleaned the entire house and made it so that it will be easier for me to maintain when he's at work. My mom and SIL lit into him at a BBQ we had at our house and told him that he can't be an ostrich and bury his head in the sand. That he has to be more supportive of me and what I want/need, I am very greatful to them for doing that. I also did 2 things today that were just for me and what I wanted and no one else's opinion mattered. I cut off a lot of my hair so that it is now just under my chin (it was halfway down my back before) and I pierced my nose. Hubby didn't want me to do either, but it's my body, my hair and no one is going to tell me what I can and cannot do with it. He got a huge back tattoo that I didn't want him to get, but he still has it. While I do not have pictures of the piercing happening, it wasn't eventful anyway unless you count the needle sticking out of my nose with a cork on the end of it, I've always been a piercing trooper! And of course I have a picture of both! The stud that is in now will come out in 6 weeks or so and you'll barely beable to see it.
  10. I Just Need Someone

    Oh no, I have a 20lb cast iron skillet that will do the trick, and if it doesn't I'm armed up to the hilt. I am afraid of driving because I hit a semi November of 08, that not something you get over easily especially after ther numerous surgeries and months spent in physical therapy. That and my right great toe doesn't bend the way it should. I know I'm a walking disaster, but I am still walking. I need a nap.
  11. I Just Need Someone

    My doctor won't do anything for me, just schedule an appointment in 2 weeks and tell me to increase my zoloft. I've already increased my zoloft from 50mg to 100mg. Nothing is helping, I tried a hot bath but all I did was pull my knee's up to my chest and repeat "everything is my fault". Tried to distract myself with school, but there wasn't much to do that I didn't alreay know. I don't drive, I haven't driven since I hit that semi because it also induces panic attack. I just don't know what to do as I really don't have anyone to talk to anymore.
  12. I Just Need Someone

    I was doing okay, but something set off another panic attack. I'm going to call my doctor and see if there is something else to try to make them stop as this particular medication is not working. I really want a baby, I'm infertile and have tried multiple treatments to just start my body and nothing has worked. I'm not sleeping well at night and I wake up every few hours and just lay there, I'm sure if I got some good sleep things would be much better. I have very few resources where I live, anything like a therapist would take a minimum of 20 minutes to drive to. I feel like if I'm perfect people will stop dying or leaving me. I know I can't stop it, but maybe I can delay it for a little while. I'm trying to take a hot bath but our water heater isn't large enough to fill the bath tub so I'm having to boil water.
  13. I Just Need Someone

    He's good for the most part, it's just his idea or waht a woman should do and what my idea of what a woman should do differ. Of course my ideas of what my husband is right now are not the greatest either. He's in for a talking to when he gets home tonight and I am not making him dinner, he can figure that one out himself! My mom came over and talked me off the ledge, I still want to go curl up on the couch and cry some more. I've already thrown the vacuum cleaner and my phone (both still work, darn it!) the next step is breaking china, if I can find it sine it's still packed away somewhere. THanks guys, I really appreciate all of you.
  14. I Just Need Someone

    My husband works for boeing from 2:30pm to 11pm. It's just getting worse and not getting better. THe Klonopin isn't touching it despite the amount I've taken. My husband told me that I'm not doing enough around the house, what else can I do? Peel grapes for him? I'm tired of always being the wrong one, when in fact I'm right. Oh and he explained it to his mom and I havent heard an apology yet.
  15. I Just Need Someone

    I have had my first full blown panic attack today in months. I'm stressed and the quest for perfection is killing me. I'm a full time student which I do from home and I've been maintaining a B average the entire time. I also take care of two dogs and two cats by myself, the entire house, all of the cooking and myself. I just can't do it anymore! I can't make sure I'm always flawless and the house is clean and dont even mention the two dogs! I take care of everyone and everything else and there is no one to take care of me. I've been trying and trying to get pregnant for over a year now and nothing has happened except for my miscarriage last november. My MIL thinks that I am never going to give her a grandchild and that puts a lot of unnecessary pressure on me. Then I hear them talking about someone else being 17 weeks pregnant and it kills me, it absolutely kills me to heaar those types of things. I am so stressed out that all I want to do is sit in the rain for hours and lets it wash away my saddness and stress. I've had to take a double dose of my anxiety meds just to take the edge off. I have no one to talk to about this so I've just been sitting here crying. I can't do this anymore, I'm tired of being perfect and doing what is expected of me. My chest has been tight for weeks and it's been difficult to breathe and yet I still am. This is the only place where I can truly and fully express my feelings.
