Go Cards

Sunday night I went to the Cardinals VS Cubs game. It was an exciting game right up to the end when we kicked the Cubs' butt. However I think the crowd around us was more entertaining. While watching the game I also got to watch 3 people be escorted out by stadium security.

The first was a rowdy Cards fan who tried to push a rowdy Cubs fan down some steps. Security came and had to get the whole story and then told the Cards fan that he had to leave. The funny part was that while security was getting the story the guy just stood there eating his peanuts and trying to look around the guard to continue watching the game. He acted as though he had done no wrong.

The next 2 people were an older couple. They were seated about 3 rows in front of us. It started as them not letting a young girl cross in front of them so that she could get to her seat. The insisted that she go the other way since there were less people. They were so rude that the girl was almost in tears. Then they did it again to another girl, but she was older and got into an argument with the couple, but made her way to her seat. What happened after that is still kind of a mystery.

Someone, who was never discovered, threw a beer at the couple and totally drenched the lady. So she turned around and blasted the couple behind them. They explained that they also had beer splashed on them, so it wasn't them. People started to accuse others and again security was called. The situation was explained and why the beer was possibly thrown. At to the cheers of the people around the older couple was escorted out.

When I told this story to my family everyone assumed that the couple were Cubs fans, but they weren't. They were Cards fans, so you figure they had to be bad to have all their fellow fans turn against them. I can't wait to go to another game.

Here Fishy Fishy

I grew up fishing and loved it. My siblings and I used to watch our grandpa clean his fish and we would always make him open the belly to see what the fish had eaten. So when it came to a weekend of fishing and I was told by LD I couldn't go because it was boys only, I was a little disappointed.

However when I heard that there was gonna be an opening the second day I jumped at the opportunity and asked again if I could go fishing. To my surprise LD said yes. So at dinner I announced that I was gonna go fishing and his dad and bro gasped. I said if they didn't want me to go I wouldn't. They were quick to explain that it wasn't the fact that I was going it was the fact that I WANTED to. None of the girls from their family would ever think of fishing.

They then began to try to torture me by telling me that I would have to bait my hook and get the fish off the line, etc. I tried to explain that I grew up doing this, but they still didn't understand. So the next morning after I cast my line and his dad exclaimed, she really can fish, I just wanted to turn around and say I told you so.

I might use this experience to get them to agree to let me go hunting with them too. Although they would probably regret letting me do that since I know you have to be quiet and I doubt I can handle hours of silence. What can I say I am a girl and love to talk.

It isn't Fair

So Munchkin's dad has always been a pain in my side. He has always complained that I don't send enough pictures or I don't keep in touch enough blah blah blah. Well excuse me, but the last time I had checked email and phones worked both ways. The climax to this was in May 2005. After much arguing we came to an agreement that I would send pictures and have Reese call everyother weekend and his dad would call the other weekends.

This worked out wonderfully for a long time with one hitch. His Dad never called him. He never even returned a phone call if Reese left a message. Hell he wasn't even home half the time Munchkin would call to talk. I let this slide because I didn't want to get into it again and everyone seemed happy with this. Until He sent some websites about him and his band, so that Munchkin could look at them.

This was all fine and dandy except I noticed that not anywhere on these pages was Munchkin mentioned or pictured. This concerned me because soon Munchkin might notice this and wonder why his father doesn't mention him and why is his girlfriend pictured but not him. So I mentioned my concern to his father through an email (I refuse to speak to him) and while I was at it I also mentioned that Reese has asked why he has to always call and why he never calls him. His response to this was that he was redoing his bio and would add a mention of Munchkin and his picture. He also said that he would call him with in the next week. I was satisfied.

This was back in June and Munchkin has still never received that promised phone call. I didn't so anything about it cause a broken promise from him is not anything new. I kept up with my side minus the phone calls. What can I say. It is summer and our weekends have been full. I sent him pictures of our trip to Branson in July. No response. Then about 2 weeks ago I sent him an updated email about Munchkin starting school and how our weekends are busy til then so don't expect a call, but Munchkins still waiting for his promised call. (I added that just for good measure) Still no response.

So being the nosy person that I am I checked out his other sites to see if maybe he hasn't been on the computer recently. Nope that wasn't the case. Ya wanna know what he did on that day in June instead of calling his son. He proposed to his girlfriend. Which makes me a little curious to if this is the reason he has not responded to anything since he last promised a phone call. Does he plan to cut Munchkin out now that he is gonna start a family? For my sake that would be wonderful, but I don't want that for Munchkin. It is just frustrating because I am not suppose to know, so I can't question him about it.

Oh and another reason this bothers me. I wanted to have the happily Ever After first not him. The man who is now gonna get married and be able to start another family while also having bragging rights to a son here he has never met. I wanted that before him. So yeah now I am a little more resentful and maybe a tad jealous, but personally I think I am allowed to be.

Long Time No Blog

It has been a while since I have been on here. Mainly because my dad set up some security thing that wouldn't allow me to log on. I hope to begin posting on here again. So come visit me.

One major update since my last post. I have been seeing someone, lets call him LD, for almost 5 months. It has been moving very quickly. Munchkin has meet him and likes him. We have gone on a vacation with him and his family. He has met my family. We have talked about the future and he even hinted one day last weekend that he was looking at rings. Yikes. I like the thought of all that, but at the same time I don't want to go too fast. This relationship has a few complications that add to the stress. First he is in a wheelchair, which has taken some getting used to, but if I do say so myself I have handled it well. Secondly he has to get used to Munchkin and Munchkin to him. Thirdly he has a house in Plato, Missouri, which is about 4 hours from St. Louis. This wouldn't be so bad except that the house is in the middle of no where and the closest Walmart is 45 minutes away. Walmart is everywhere, but here, so what does that say. It is a farmer town, so I would become a farmer wife if I moved there. He is here on the weekends, but plans to start stay there full time very soon.

I wouldn't mind living in the country, but he is so far out there that I would have to deal with a few dangers that I am not sure I am ready to deal with especially with a child that could get into trouble. He doesn't live there fulltime, so I am sure the troubles will lessen when someone is there all the time. I mean he has had to shot a cottonmouth (poisonous snake) that was on the front porch. He has also has problems with bobcats walking in the yard. Usually this wouldn't bother me, but I would never feel safe letting Munchkin play outside by himself. He has neighbors that have raised kids with no problems, so I guess it will be ok, but I just worry and get nervous. I have told him to stop telling me about this stuff, but he knows I would rather know than not.

Relationships are all about compromise, so we will figure it out some how. Only time will tell.
