MIA Aug. 16th, 2007 @ 11:12 pm
So here I am sitting at the computer.
Taking a break from looking for a polo shirt that I REALLY need to find.....
I have no idea as to where it could be.
Damn.

Tomorrow is going to be a busy day.
We have therapy in the morning. Sam and I are getting are hair cut.....or well trimmed.
Then it's home again.
Then I have to get ready for Dee to come over (She's going to help me re-dye my hair.)
Then it's off to the Black Market for the night.

Hell this whole weekend is going to be crazy.
Saturday in the morning looks like it's going to be slow, but then around noon it's back to the Black Market.
Possibly dinner with the Orange County Vampire group.

Then on Sunday it's over to the Corner Bakery at the Block at 9am for the Vamprie's Breakfast.
9:30 is the raffle by 10-ish we should be headed out and to the park where we will be meeting some other vampire Meetup members at 10:30.
Then after that it's different photo meetings and lunch and gods know what else lol....


Well I am off again to continue the search for the MIA polo shirt.
Wish me luck.....


***** Update*****
Found the polo shirt!
And it's now being swirled around in the washer.....

It's Been Re-released!!!! Aug. 15th, 2007 @ 03:38 pm
I first read a book by this author when I was in JR. High. I love her books, but most of them went out of print in the late 1990's.
But what my luck that I was in Barns and Noble today for there in the teen section on one of there center displays I found this:











Not my favorit series by the author .
That would be the Nigthworld series (Which I am still waiting to find out what happens in the tenth and last book....Grrrr...)
I am hoping that once the last book is done and on it's way to the printers they will re-print the whole series. Now that I see that they are reprinting this series I have much more hope.
YAY!!! I am so excited and I can't wait to add it to my ever groing vamprie fiction section in my ever growing library!








And yes....
I know that I am a dork.


Lots to do Aug. 15th, 2007 @ 03:33 pm
Ok...
So heres whats happening in the next 2 weeks.

This week & weekend:

Thursday or Friday
I will be re-dying my hair. (Well my friend will be re-dying it for me...)

Bats Day

I will be at both days at the Black Market.
Be sure to visit the Wrath Worx booth and pick up your raffle tickets for the raffle at the Vampires Breakfast Before Bats Day being held at 9am at the Corner Bakery at the Block in Orange.
Tickets are $1 and you have the opportunity of winning prizes donated by, Horror Decor, VamprieWear, and more.

Sunday is the Vampire's Breakfast that I am hosting for the 4th year. We will be having a raffle and goody bags will be handed out to the first 30 guests.
I am curious to see how many people show up this year. I was lucky enough to talk with Noah (the brains behind Bats Day) and he was kind enough to post the info about the Breakfast on the Bats Day web site....
So with that and the fact that the breakfast has a myspace page there is a lot more exposure/advertising for the event this year.

After the breakfast it's off to the park. I am excited about going. We are dressing up and such. (I'll try to post some pics.)
So we'll be at the park for the day and hopefully we'll make it to all the photo things. YAY!

Next week:

This is the week for packing and double checking lists.
We will be headed out to Burning Man on Sunday the 26th.
I am starting to get very excited about going "home" again. I can't wait to get out there and get Dusty... lol

We'll be dropping Sam off at the babysitters probably on ether Sat or Sun. We haven't decided yet.

Amongst all of this craziness we also have therapy for Sam and other general cleaning and such.
Lots and lots to do.....

Lots o fun....

Life sucks...

» I think.....
I may be going into a depression.

The good thing is that I now have something that I didn't have when I use to get depressed.
My son. All I have to do if I feel myself slipping off to that "dark" place I go pick up my giggling (ever growing) son and cuddle with him on the couch.
I mean how could I feel depressed with a little ball of sun shine like him!?

I don't know. So much has been going on. So much....
I am stressed, annoyed, lonely and I just feel like shit.
But I look at him and all is right with the world.
» I'm Hooked....(Parkour)
For the past couple of days I have been doing some reading on Parkour and Free Running.
I saw some free runners in a movie and now I a hooked.

So I joined this website http://www.pkcali.com/.
I found out that they hold local jams in Fullerton and Huntington Beach to name a few places. I am thinking I may go to a jam in Fullerton sometime soon.

I have started to design a work out schedual.
And last night I was surprised when I took a run around my apartment complex how many different obstacles there were that I can use to practice some parkour moves.
I am very excited....
YAY!!
» MRI Results
So we had the MRI this past month. We got the results back yesterday when we took Sam into the doctors for a cold....
Turns out that he has an ear infection. (poor little guy)

But back to the MRI results......
What they revield was that a small portion of Sam's brain didn't get enough air.
Soooooooo yeah...
But the good thing is that the doctor said that becasue he's so young his brain will be able to create new pathways and such......

So I feel really good about that.

In other news therapy is still going well.We still are going twice a week....(2 hours total)
Sam is really making a BIG improvment. Sometimes his hand is still in a fist, but it's a lot better. The therapy is really helping as well as the brace....
» Long Time No Update
So it's been awhile since I last updated this thing so here goes....

The past couple of months have been filled with many different things. S heres the breakdown.

Personal Life:

I have been trying to find a work from home job that isn't a scam..(Which is work in it's self lol) But it looks like I'll be starting on at the end of this month (Heres to crossing my fingers).

I am getting ready to go back to school, which if you look back in some of my other posts I have said Many times before, but this time I followed threw. I have a meeting with a councilor at the end of this month. I'll be taking on-line classes and one lab.

Kids grow up fast.
My little one is 17 months old. He just started to walk. He's so funny. He'll take a few steps and then start giggling and then fall....

Therapy is going well. We've been going since Dec of last year. We go twice a week for a total of 2 hours. Sam was diagnosed with a mild case of CP (Cerebral Palsy. His right hand is quite often he'll in a fist with his little thumb held under all the rest of his fingers. We use a small flexible brace to help hold his thumb in an open position.

We go for an MRI on the 22nd of this month.
I'm a tad worried because he has to be sedated for it as well as placed on an IV. He also can't eat anything before we go, and he loves his food so that's going to be hard....

My health has been a little less then good. A couple of weeks ago I had a concussion for falling down the stairs when I was taking laundry out. Spent 3 hours in the ER. It wasn't that bad, but it still wasn't fun.
I am more worried about the underlying cause of why I fell. I have been getting these sharp pains in my left temple and sometimes they cause me to feel light headed or dizzy and that's what happened on the stairs.
Not fun. So hopefully I'll get that figured out soon. Really all I want to do is get threw this month and all of Sam's doctors appointments, then I'll worry about me.

Generally life has been ok. I am hoping for a few changes in the next couple of months. Hopefully moving into a bigger place, getting my license, a car.....
Change is good.

Vammpy Goodness:

I have been trying to be a little more active on the community forums and message boards. Especially VCMB.Org. Lots of funb stuff happening there.

A friend of mine got me to dust of some book manuscripts that I started maybe a yeah and a half ago. So far I am working mostly on the Teen vampire book and the "General" vampire book. Both of them are growing steadily.

I hope to have the Teen book finished by Dec 2007 and published by Jan 2008.
The general one I hope to have out by min year 2008.

The Kindred Tribune is in it's 2nd year and still going strong. We distribute close to 200 copies each issue. We have about 150 subscribers and then anywhere between 50 - 60 downloads from our website (Vein Press and Publishing)

)I am also running a Southern California Vampire event this year. It's being held in July. Free food,Music, and a raffle. To find out more info please feel free to visit us:
3rd Annual Vampire Beach Burn

Next years (depending on how this years goes) will be allot bigger and will have a D.J, Dance floor, Entertainment, Alcohol, and more....

A dear friend and I are looking at starting a Podcast/Video Cast about the Dark Culture on the West Coast.We've already been granted to film at two of Southern California's most popular clubs.
Currently we're in the early planning stages so stay tuned.

Meet-up:Orange County Vampire Meetup

The meets are going well.
I am planning a few more outings and such.
I'll probably start doing Meetup Re-caps here again as well as on myspace and the meetup site.
We've Been going for Dim Sum once a month and that's become a popular event.

So that's about it.... I guess....
I am sure I left something out, but oh well..
I am now headed off to pack some bags so we can go to the Beach.
