    My version of a Totally Sque'd reality!

    June 28, 2005

    They say the mind is the first thing to go!

    And apparently that is a true statement. I was out of town all day yesterday, woke up this morning, checked my voice mail and realized that yesterday...was my birthday. Umm HELLO?!!
    I say to hell with it. I'll just remain 28 forever! Yeah...28 sounds like a good number. We'll go with that one.

    I can honestly say that this has never happened to me before. Could one of you help me remove my head from my uhm...back door?

    Have you already had your last chance?

    It has been a very sad week for the Sque family. This past week, my niece; my sister in law's daughter from a previous marriage, was killed in a car accident. Actually, she and her boyfriend were both killed...instantly. They were both 23 years old and have a 2 year old daughter.

    While this has been very upsetting to all of us, I can only hope that she [they] are finally free of the demons that have been haunting them for so long. They both had severe drug problems and their lives over the past few years had been spinning out of control. It started with several car accidents, both arrested for drugs, a little jail time, their daughter being removed from their home, fights with parents and family. Right before this happened, my niece was about to lose custody of her own daughter, permanently. She was given one last chance by the judge, to try and get her act together. Her own mother had temporary custody of her daughter and she was to check into rehab this past weekend. She never made it. Little did anyone know, she'd already had her last chance.

    I guess someone else is in charge of last chances.

    I don't know or understand much about death or what happens to us when we're gone, but I hope somehow, she is given a chance to start over if that's possible. She was a beautiful, intelligent, wonderful person. I'm not sure where things went wrong for her. Perhaps she took a wrong turn somewhere, but I know in my heart that this wasn't the path that she was destined to. I cannot imagine that this was God's plan for her. All I know is that I hope she can somehow have another chance to shine. It is also my hope that her daughter Madison will not be haunted by this for the rest of her life. We love her and will do our best to see her through. I pray that God will guide her throughout her life and that he has many many blessings in store for her.

    Any prayers, good juju's or whatever your thing is, send some her way please.

    And the verdict is....?

    Wow, not guilty verdicts on all charges! I can't say I saw that coming. I was hoping for a not guilty verdict because I have been such a huge fan, but I wish I felt more certain about his innocence. I really hate the media circus surrounding these types of trials, but in a way I wish I could have heard the evidence as it was presented. Mostly because I'd like to put this to rest in my own mind. I was able to watch or record most of the OJ Simpson trial, and although I believed the evidence, and believed him to be guilty, I was able to understand why that jury came up with their verdict. As presented, they had no other choice. I guess in this particular case, all I can do is hope this is the right verdict and that justice has been served appropriately.

    I heard the news that the jurors have a verdict in the Jackson trial and I gotta say, I'm sort of nervous for the guy. I was/still am a fan. I've had mixed feelings about this whole thing all along. I mean, the thought of someone doing that to a child just...sends me into orbit and if the guy is guilty, god help him! He deserves whatever he gets and probably then some! On the other hand, I can totally see how greed might drive someone to falsely accuse him. Both situations enrage and sadden me.

    Unlike the OJ Simpson murder case, we have not been privy to daily testimony in this trial, so I wouldn't dare offer a guess at what the truth is or what the verdict might be. All I hope for is justice.

    Oh how I hate Murphy's Law

    I can't imagine what I must have done to get on his bad side, but Murphy sure seems to be pissed at me for some reason. Murphy has to be of the male gender!

    My Dad went to the hospital on Thursday for a "procedure", and ended up staying nearly a week. He had been complaining of not having any energy, then after some testing, his doctors found his blood count to be very low. This meant he was losing blood somewhere. There were no obvious signs that he was losing blood so it didn't start out as a huge deal, but they needed to top off his tank. So he received several pints of blood, but that didn't quite do it, so they gave him more. By Sunday, his blood count was going down again. After yesterday's colonoscopy, they discovered bleeding ulcers, took him off all blood thinners and aspirin which he had been taking since his stroke last summer, then gave him more blood. Today he seems much better and will likely be going home tomorrow afternoon. Thankfully, this round of health issues has been far less dramatic than the health issues he's been struggling with for the past couple of years!

    In other news, what started out as a small wet spot on my dining room ceiling has become a large gaping hole! Apparently my air conditioner is creating condensation...Somewhere and...something...Somewhere is blocked and this is causing water to drip from somewhere. I am not familiar with the inner workings of it all. All I know is that I can live with a gaping hole in the ceiling as long as the A/C continues to cool my home. For all I care, the entire ceiling can fall in, but if my house is cool, I'm cool too. So for now, I am still in good spirits. If we don't have coolness, then we will indeed have a disaster on our hands and someone may need to come shoot me. While you're at it, shoot Murphy too because I hate that little bastard.
