Don’t Wake Me…I’m Dreaming

18 Aug

Hi guys! I want to tell you about my day, with this random blog posting. My day started around 6am Friday. I had to be at “The Hotel” at 7. I was suppose to work 7-3 which seemed horrible because I’m a night owl. I can stay up all night and sleep all day. But hey when duty calls, duty calls. When 3pm rolled around I was so ready to run out of work! But one of my coworkers called and was having car trouble. I was tired but I needed the hours so tired or not I was gonna work! I stayed until almost 8pm. Once I left work I was so ready to go to bed. I ate and went to sleep. My plan was to sleep the whole night and wake up Saturday morning. However that didn’t happen.

My mother decides to call me around 2:30 in the morning. For what you might ask? Nothing important at all! She wanted to know what size clothes my daughter wears. How nice mommy but at 2 something in the morning? So I give her the sizes and we start to talk about my daughter A’Janaya. To bad the conversation didn’t make it any where. My mothers phone went out. I called her back no answer. I call her back again still no answer. Now I’m like dammit Ma you call me, wake me up, your phone goes out, and you don’t answer when I call you back. Great!

Now it is 4:03am and I’m still up. Usually when I’m up, there is always one person who is up around this time of day…my dad. I call him and amazingly enough his phone didn’t go to voice mail. We talk, laugh, and joke. My father is…not so funny. I laugh more at him then his jokes! If only people could hear the things that he says. I’m sure you would laugh too. To make my early morning even better I got to talk to my youngest sister! I haven’t scene or talked to her in years, so that was a pleasent suprise! I got her number so I definetly plan on keeping in touch with her.

So no I’m sitting in my living room eating watermelon and pineapples debating weather or not I should put a movie on. Oh the decisions! If I was asleep I wouldn’t have to make any. All I can think about is the song from the 90’s Don’t Wake Me I’m Dreaming! Oh how I wish I was sleep and dreaming! Thanks Ma! Oh but I’m gonna get her back!

Are There Crack Heads Among Us?

30 Jul

Okay I have been thinking and wondering when did it become cool for people to use crack? Especially young people. I ask these questions because I thought I could tell if a person was on crack or not. I have some in my family, so I thought I knew. Boy was I wrong.

There was this boy who use to hang with my boyfriend. He was always over our house, he stayed at our house from time to time, ate dinner with us, anything that we needed and he could help out with it, he did. He was a really cool person. He was young, but cool. He wasn’t even 18 yet. Anyway we had a car in our yard that was my boyfriends cousins. The battery was dead. But some how his stero equiptment came up missing from his trunk. We didn’t know who did it, but we knew that it had to be someone who knew us. Whoever it was had to know enough about us to know that you had to jump the car in order to pop the trunk. As well as be comfortable enough to come in our yard and not be scared of our pit bulls. My boyfriend and his cousin asked the guy and he said “hell naw I wouldn’t steal from yall”. So whatever we had no proof and a lot of people don’t like my boyfriends cousin. And there were a lot of other people who could have stolen his stuff.

Move foward a few meeks to a month this particular person didn’t come around as much as he use to. He started to ask for money like clock work. Could he borrow money, did I have anything on my debit card, ect. The last time that he came he asked me for some money, I told him I didn’t have any. Then he asked me about my debit card that I had just got that very day. I told him I didn’t have anything on the card. The next morning I woke up my card is missing out of my wallet along with $2.00. I asked my boyfriend had this “person” been by and he said earlier that morning. This was not unusual because he was always over, any time day or night. My boyfriend and I find out the next week that he had been arrested for breaking and entering in another county and he had been smoking crack that whole week prior. Talk about a shocker, we had no clue. But heind seight is always 20/20. We thought about it and did notice that he was acting strange that whole week. He went from always being over to only comming over to ask for money. And to steal my debit card and $2.00. Even though he stole from us, I feel so bad for him, he is such a good person, and he is so young. How could someone that young be on crack? It boggles my mind. But this situation makes me wonder, are there other crack heads among us that I don’t know about?
