Thank you for supporting Team Rubicon’s response to Hurricane Florence.

As you may know already my family and I were also affected as we live in Onslow County North Carolina near Jacksonville / Camp Lejeune area. 

We know our neighborhood had some pretty devastating flooding as well as many others in eastern and central North Carolina.

Her first in heaven

My momma’s first birthday in heaven is tomorrow, October 20th. She would have been 69 years young.
Oh God how I miss her so.
I know this gets easier over time but I wish that time was now.
My husband has been trying so hard to keep me from falling into a deeper hole that I […]

Have you ever been in one of those periods where you really just want to disconnect from the world around you and just immerse yourself in your own little bubble? Yeah, well that is kind of where I have been this past several, several weeks. Dealing with my husband and his “service connected issues” […]

A Scottish Hee Haw

Need a laugh today? To make up for a bad day or week. Can you watch this without laughing? You know those videos that are just magic because you can’t helped but laugh?

It’s funny. We had FEMA come and do their little ”interview” or whatever they call it for your application for disaster assistance. […]

There’s always a good side

No matter what things myself or my family have gone through I have managed to look at things from a different perspective. Now I won’t sit here and say there was something good about getting beat or raped but I will say it has taught me to love myself more than I did, it’s […]

Well that wasn’t what I thought

Woke up this morning with a fever of 101. Got to the doctor’s office by 8am and what I thought was a sinus infection turned out to be the dreaded FLU…. so now we have to try our damndest not to get Dusty sick.

Doctor prescribed tamiflu and gives the normal spill of staying hydrated.

What we did without, now becomes an almost obsession

By |October 8th, 2018|Family|0 Comments

As a single mother I struggled just to keep food on the table. I would make grocery trips with the kids stroller and was always limited to the dollar amount spent and quantity because I could only fit so much in the stroller. Now at one point early on we lived maybe a mile […]

Today didn’t go as planned so the procedure had to be rescheduled until next Friday morning. One of the machines used in separating the blood wasn’t working properly and she didn’t want to try to do it without knowing for sure the machine was fully operational. She apologized numerous times and even gave me $100 back […]

Rape and Alcohol

Two of the times I have been raped I was under the influence of alcohol. Because of the things I have gone through in my life, the lives of my family members and close friends I am really just not the type of person that drinks like that. Yes, I am Irish so the […]

Most of people have a memory of the ice cream truck coming by and the excited feeling you get knowing you were about to get something off the ice cream truck, YAY!

Well that’s for most people. I admit I used to feel the same way. UNTIL…. Living in Las Vegas, NV we lived […]
