34 years ago today, I was a brand new baby… snuggled up in my mama’s arms… beginning my life!!! Happy Birthday to me…. Yay…. I am not one of those people who like to keep their birthday hidden; or don’t like for people to acknowledge!! I love my birthday… I love for people to oooohhh and aaaahhhh over me!! Ever other day of the year, my life is dedicated to taking care of my children & Joe (and I do.not.mind. that AT ALL, of course); so on this one day, I like for people to take care of me… I don’t have to cook or clean or have any responsibility other than having a good day!!
You know, two of my biggest birthdays in the past, I was pregnant for--- on my 21st birthday, I was pregnant with CJ… But I did still buy alcoholic drinks….just not for me…. Any time anyone needed a new drink, during our night out, I would go get it; you can imagine the stares I got as a 28 weeks pregnant woman carrying around beers… hee-hee!! Oh, and then on my 30th birthday, I was pregnant with Angie… so, instead of the big 3-0 birthday bash I had planned on for soooo long, I was waddling around with a baby up in my ribs!!
Ok, Ok, Ok… enough birthday talk….. BUT, if any of you want to “get me a gift”, you can just leave me a comment, or “follow me” or even “grab my button” and share the love….. or, the BEST yet, you could blog a birthday wish for me… oooohhh, that would be too cool!!! Ok, Ok, Ok… I really I am done now…. And I p-r-o-m-i-s-e, I am NOT a narcissistic person… it’s just like I said… I love my birthday!!
So, onto my writing assignment…. I haven’t been to MamaKat’s class in a few weeks; but I am back and ready for her challenge!! This week I have decided to go with her 3rd prompt: “tell about a local news story that is all the BUZZ”.
By far, the biggest news story around my neck of the woods is about little Caylee Anthony… I am sure many of you have heard of this story as well and I am sure it has sickened you as much as it has me!! Last July, a mother (Casey Anthony) finally reported her daughter missing after she had supposedly been missing for 6 weeks……her excuse for waiting that long was that she said she was doing the investigating herself…Uh yea, ok!! After months and months of lots of speculation, lots of searching for Caylee, lots of media coverage, the mom (Casey) being in and out of jail… that sweet 3 year pld’s body was found in a garbage bag in some woods close to their home….. so, so, so sad!!
There are so many twists and turns in this story that I can’t even write about them all or we would be here all night long…. But what I do know is that mama killed her baby…. I don’t necessarily think it was a pre-meditated murder, but I do think some terrible accident happened and then she tried to cover it up…. Either way, I think Casey (the mom) is a self-centered, self-absorbed sociopath and I hope justice gets served (and before anyone gets mad, I do know that legally she is “innocent until proven guilty”….but the cards are definitely stacked against her)!!
