Well we got rained on tonight, a lot. So trick or treating was cut very short, we usually trick or treat for about 4 hours and tonight it was more like an hour and a half of cold wetness, but we got to dress up, the kids got a little candy, and afterwards i took em to subway, so not a bad night. Now we are at home watching movies and eating candy. here is what we all looked like.
Well I am finally ready for Halloween, I hope everyone out there has a good one and stays safe.
I cant decide which one is the best zombie look, both eyes done like they are here, or just one like in my previous post.
Okay, So of course I am going to be a zombie on Halloween and today I decided to practice a little with my makeup, tell me what you guys think so far.
Hey everybody its my birthday.
I am 30 years old today and that just doesn’t seem right to me, I mean I remember when my parents were 30 and i just shouldn’t be that old yet, but here i am anyway lol.
I really dont mind getting older, but im still waiting for the day that i will wake up and feel like an adult, since it hasnt happened yet, im gonna go out on a limb here and say it probably never will.
My wonderful hubby went out this morning got and breakfast for me then he surpised me with a dozen roses and a cake that he knew i would love, he is such a sweetie.
So far 30 is treating me pretty good.
Look at my pretty puppy, isnt he cute. Actually he isnt a puppy he is about 6 years old, but he still acts like a puppy. His name is Draven and he is a shar-pei and pit bull mix.

In honor of The Walking Dead returning and Halloween coming up, here are a few of my many zombie pics.
The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of us,
but those who win battles we know nothing about.

Right now everything is all about, who has the nicest house, the best car, the newest cell phones, and who makes the most money. This got me wondering if society were to fall, how many people would actually stand a chance at surviving? would you be able to feed your family if there were no longer grocery stores, would you be able to clothe your family, ( i cant sow worth anything so my husband would have to do that one) would you be able to physically protect your family, if money had no value, we had no electricity, and you had to actually take care of yourself, could you survive? I think for most people the answer would be a definite NO, most people would be like lori on the walking dead, just kinda there like a stump on a log, depending on others to feed and protect them, and not contributing anything at all except for a headache, because nowadays you are not taught how to survive, you are taught how to buy stuff. I personally think it is very important to at least know the basics, like hunting, fishing, and gardening, but many many people dont even know how to do those things. People have became very lazy and if its not easy or pleasant they dont want to do it, so if the zombie apocalypse ever happens ( dont laugh at me its possible. LOl ) man were in trouble. So i have decided that once a month i am going to try to learn something that would be a necessity in a devastating event. I already know how to hunt, fish, garden, build a shelter, and i am awesome with my crossbow, so i think my first choice is gonna be learning how to make primitive fire. I think everyone should be doing this, i mean if someone or many someones, lol are running toward you trying to eat your face, do you think you can scream i majored in business management so dont eat me. i dont think that would work but if you know how to use a machete that would certainly help and with the way the world is right now, anything is possible and thats what i want to be prepared for anything, plus i think its fun. So could you survive if society falls? and if the answer is yes, why do you think so? I think my family and i could not only survive, but thrive. My husband and i are very good with tools, weapons, and do it yourself stuff in general, we love to be out in the wild, and if anything ever did happen we would be heading up in the mountains, where we would be just fine. okay now i want to hear from you.
Thanks Maggie, for inviting me to tell my story on your blog.
My guest author today is Diana Roark whom I met through her very open and honest blog, Trying To Make Things Right. She is an amazing young woman who enjoys reading, camping, fishing, going to church, traveling, and gaming. Her favorite games are anything zombie related, and she is a huge zombie fan (About). But most of all, after dealing with alcoholism from a very young age, today she is living a clean and sober life! This is her story:
Against All Odds
Written by Diana Roark
My name is Diana, I am a 29-year-old wife and mother of 4 boys and a daughter who passed away in 2008. I am also a recovering drug addict and alcoholic. I have been clean and sober for 3 years and 2 months.
I am extremely grateful to my husband because if not for him I doubt I would have…

When we first met we were both hanging around a lot of trashy people, who did a lot of trashy things, anyway darrell asked me to go to dinner with him which was the first time anyone had ever asked me to go out with them in an appropriate way, i had been asked hey you wanna go get drunk? but never asked to dinner. So i was impressed just by that alone, everything was going great, and he made me laugh more than anyone i had ever met. about 2 weeks after we started dating, he used coke at a party we went to, and thats when i found out he was addicted to cocaine and that he had just gotten out of rehab, i told him we could still be friends but that i could not be with someone who did drugs. we had a long conversation about how rehab had told him he would continue to lose everything if he kept using, he said now i know they are right and he promised he would never use again. That was 13 years ago and he has been clean ever since. Now i was already an alcoholic when we met, i had even completed a.a. but i didnt really think i had a problem i just thought i was young and liked to party (i was wrong). years later i started getting ovarian cysts, which are really painful, so my doctor started giving me pain killers, things got bad, i was constantly going to the er or a different doctor, and when they stopped giving them to me i started buying them off the street. Fast forward a few more years later and darrell was the one helping me overcome my addictions to alcohol and pain pills. Now What are the odds, i mean darrell met me someone who was against drugs, in a place filled with drug addicts, that alone is a miracle, and if he hadnt who knows where he might have ended up. If i had looked at him that night and said no big deal its okay, would he have stopped using? God knew that he needed me back then, and that i would need him later on. We have both had moments where we felt like giving up, but we never wanted to give up at the same time, and we have pulled each other back from the darkest places, that most never come out of. He makes me a better person, as i do him, yes we have had some pretty terrible times in our relationship, but we fought for us and refused to quit. My marriage is one of the things i am most proud of, only coming second to our children. The last 2 years and 9 months we have both been clean and sober, and we are so happy, and so much more in love than ever before. we are both incredibly thankful to have found each other. We beat the odds, and I thank God every day for bringing us together.
My smile will never be seen, my laugh will never be heard, they called me a parasite this is absurd.
My mommy decided abortion was best, i wish i had a voice so i could protest.
If i did i would say mommy please dont let me go, this is my life and i want it so,
Please mommy dont take my life away, i like it here and i really wanna stay.
What have i done, and what can i do, its not my fault im inside you.
But a voice i do not have so soon i will die, how could you do this to me mommy please tell me why?
Please keep my son donnie in your thoughts and prayers, he is in surgery for his teeth right now.
Iv’e always heard people say that they love their children so much, that they would die for them,which is a sweet thought i guess, but most of the time you are not going to have to do that. what you will need to do is live for them. My dad was such a wonderful person when i was younger, he worked really hard, loved God and his family, and when my mother left us, he took on the burden of raising 3 daughters on his own. He did okay for a little while, until he started to realize my mother was not coming back. He started drinking, not a lot at first but it became more and more, and over the years i have seen this man that i love so dearly, who was once my hero, turn into a bitter shell of the person he used to be. I really idolized my dad, and as time went on i wanted to do everything like him, walk like him, talk like him, act like him, and DRINK like him. My dad never did anything without a beer, if he was mowing he had to have beer, camping he had to have a lot of beer, the same with fishing, working, watching t.v., or anything else. I grew up watching and doing this, and thinking it was normal, and any other way was stupid, and guess what i turned out to be, an alcoholic. Your children watch you and pay attention, now i know not all children turn out like their parents, whether good or bad, but the thing is if you love them like you say you do, then why take a chance. We should be being the best examples we can for our children. Think about it this way, if you come home and say i have had a hard day, and the first thing you do is grab a beer, then you are teaching your kids when things get hard it helps to drink. my dad has never found drinking to be a serious problem, I remember one time when i was 13 my dad realized i had been stealing some of his beer, well he came up with this great idea that he would teach me a lesson about drinking by giving me a drink, so he poured 2 shots of mezcal tequila, one for him and one for me, he took his, i took mine, he threw up, i asked for another, and you know what is sad he still jokes about it to this day, even after all the problems alcohol has caused me. Now my father has lost everything, his job where he worked for 33 years, his wife, his home, his license, his health and himself. It breaks my heart to see him in this condition, and he still says theres nothen wrong with drinken some beer. I am a very lucky person, i was able to come out of my addiction, even though it was so deeply ingrained in me, that i had to relearn everything. I was lucky because so many people just can not change their way of thinking, it is all they know and most of the time its all they wanna know. Its like spending your whole life knowing that the sky is blue and then having everyone around you saying no your colors are all wrong, the sky is nowhere near blue. your children live by example, so show them how much you love them every day, by being the best example you can be. Just telling them how to act is not enough, actions speak louder than words.
