I'm a mad scientist.

LOL, WOW at me this time. So I got this wild hair in me this evening and decided I would make a night of making up new bath salts and such. Since it's so close to Christmas I wanted to experiment with chocolate. So I went to the store, went grocery shopping for my ingredients and guess where they are now?

A. In nice cute contaniers ready to be given out as samples.
B. In the trash.
C. Drippingof my kitchen ceiling.
D. Everywhere, because they exploded.

If you said D, your correct. Apparently, there is a slight, huge chemical reaction when one mixes chocolate powder, sea salt etc. I mixed it all up, and walked away for a sec. It actually POPPED.lol. Poor Tiara was standing next to it, lol cutting up the pizza she just took out of the oven. Yes tonight dinner was ruined in the cross fire. It even managed to reach my ceiling.

Now I ask, what have I done about it?

A. Laughed, then cried, because of the clean up.
B. Laughed and haven't stopped yet.
C. Well, since it's eatable, let the dog lick the floors clean.
D. Clean my daughter up, while laughing, gave the dog the pizza and headed for Mc Donald's.
C. Took one look at the clean up, and did an about face, thinking oh well there is more pizza in the oven. Then laughed at my poor daughter.

It was C poor Tiara, Thank God she has her mothers sense of humor. We all had an pretty good laugh but I have yet to clean it up. I walked out of the kitchen, turned the lights off and am hoping that when I go back, it will somehow managed to all disappear.

It's time like these when all you can do is smile and Thank God for your life as it stands. We have had a very busy week, I mean extremely busy. and this was actually just what the Doctor( God) ordered for all of us.

Thank you Jesus for my goofy life. it's great!

We all have priority!

However most of us don't use it... Well i do and below is just one example as to why.

I make no apologizes for being a positive person. If your not and being around one bothers you, I suggest you stop reading now, because my joy is fixed and I mean for it to be contagious. Life doesn't have to be all woes, not if your priorities are in order. I feel mine are in order.

As a child of God I feel privileged, we all are. I believe I am blessed with opportunity in and over my life. Therefore I KNOW I'm priority in the Lords eyes. Just as he is mine, followed right now only by my chidlren. Although it has not always been that way and at times I forget my place, I'm quick to get back in the ranks my blog will explain the reasons why.

Priority explained ...the right to take precedence in obtaining certain supplies, services, facilities, etc., esp. during a shortage.Something or someone given special attention.The highest or higher in importance, rank, privilege, etc.: a priority task.

Yep that's my life in a nut self. I'm extremely privileged as a child of the Most High God..

What is my secret to maintaining my privileged life? What keeps me on the priority list of The Lord?  My Prayer life, which puts me in a place of intimacy and favor. If you have this, it puts you there as well. I advise you to start using your privileged status. Now I wasn't really writing about my prayer life, but rather situations and circumstances where it pays to be privileged, where it has certainly paid off to have priority in the Lords eyes.

This week, has not been the easiest week. A few of you know I have been going back and forth with doctors since April, one day I'm told this is whats wrong with me, the next I'm told this is... basically it's gotten to the point, where i have removed myself from all medications and started spending just as much time, as I did running to the doctors, on my knees.. Well it's pretty much evened the playing field and I have never felt better. Now I'm not one of those who say The Lord will heal me and never grace the steps of a doctors office again. I instead I believe wholeheartedly, that the Lord heals his chidlren an abundance of ways and so it pays to be in tune at all times when your going through situations in your life.

My Prime Example.

Mon. I was doing some work for church, all of a sudden , something occurred that stopped me dead in my tracks. I had no choice but to stop working and get seen about it, immediately. Before I left, Pastor and his wife laid hands on me and prayed for healing. Tuesday I had the situation taken care of by that afternoon I was feeling well enough to go to a meeting  I could not reschedule,I prayed all he way there, I know the Lord was over that meeting because it went very well, it was very peaceful  and quick. Today I woke up with an urgency about my son. I prayed over my chidlren and pleaded the blood of Jesus over them because honestly, i had no clue what it was about. Then the Lord told me to take my son to eye doctor. So I called to make an appointment for him, but found out they were taken walk ins, so i decided to take my girls as well. Just before walking out the door. I had the urge to go back to my office and clean out my desk. In doing so i found lots of old bills and such i never even opened. I started opening them one by one What i seen next blew my mind, so much in fact I had to pick up my phone and verify what I was holding in my hand. In my hand was an insurance card back dated from May until Oct. 31 for me from the state. Now mind you I did apply for it while i was in the hospital, but was denied because of my finical situation. However due to the nature of my emergency and because they knew i would be needing more care outpatient, they approved me , temporarily.I of course had no idea they had done this. I called to verify it and found out that I only had it until Oct 31,2009. Haaaaaaaaaa. Still in disbelief i took it to the eye doctor, and asked them to run it. It came back valid. So I was able to be seen as well. All this time i have had medical insurance, but have been paying all my medical expenses out of pocket. LOL. Now mind you I have racked up over 46,000 bucks in medical bills since April and now, thanks to this, they have all been paid for. Praise God. Oh but it doesn't stop there... So we all see the eye doctor. Tiara fine..., Arianna, fine. Elijah... The doc looks at him a even before the examination starts and says . Oh yeah he will need glasses, he really needs them. The Holy spirit is speaking to me. I was like excuse me what did you say? He turns to me and says, I'm a Christian and the Holy spirit told me your son will need glasses. All i could do was laugh.LOL and I mean loudly. I know this man was waiting on a negative response from me, especially since i said what i said and how i said it,lol. However i told him why i was laughing, and he smiles, turned back around and started Elijah's exam. After the examine he told me, Your son has a severe astigmatism, and he has Deuternopia. HUH????

Red/ Green color blindness. I was like your kidding me! So much was explained. Now mind you I tried tot ell the last doctor, something was wrong with his color, but the doc just sunbed me off. Anyways Praise God now we know for certain. So now, My turn. I passed with flying colors. However he looks at me and says, have you ever been tested for diabetes? I told him yes, in fact two months ago and was fine. He looked at me and said, you need to be tested immediately again. He said, you are bleeding in the back of your eye. Praise God! I'll have it checked out tomorrow, but WOW... How awesome was that?

So Garrett had a doctors appointment this morning as well. He didn't tell me about until we pulled up at the eye doctor, and then he says... I have a doctors appointment. The reason he does it this way, because he didn't want me to worry or go with him. HUMMMMMMMMMM. Mind you he has been weezing for a few weeks an his inhaler has not worked nor has the one they given me a few weeks ago. So he goes, comes back to pic us up. I immanently ask him what the doctor said. Without hesitation he tells me. She says my heart is enlarged.I looked at him, rolled up my magazine and smacked him with it, and said, will you be serious? He laughs and says, I am being serious... She told me that's the reason I'm wheezing, because my heart is pressing against my lung. We both got very quite. I really wasn't certain what to say, other than the fact i had a million medical questions. but the Lord held my tongue. I was a tad upset i wasn't at the appointment, because I really had TONS of questions.

We were still waiting on glasses, after a few mins i told him I'd be back i needed to make a call. Went outside and called my mother. I needed to know what having an enlarged heart meant and asked her what we needed to do. My mother is not only an amazing women, but is also a profound women of medicine. We prayed and The Lord instantly let me know it would be just fine. I so believe Him an his promises. I'm pretty certain Garrett does to, because he is as cool as a cucumber.

It pays to play the priority card the Lord has placed in the hands of his children. He desires and wants nothing but the best for his children. His first priority of course for us s our salvation, but sec is our well being. When we pray it sets up and establishes a link, relationship a direct line to our father. I like to think when in need, I can just simply give it a tug. This week  have been tugging constantly and he has answered each one, with love.

You know your a mother when...

1. You count the sprinkles on each kid's cupcake to make sure they're equal.
2. You have time to shave only one leg at a time.
3. You hide in the bathroom to be alone.
4. Your kid throws up and you catch it.
5. Someone else's kid throws up at a party. You keep eating.
6. You consider finger paints to be a controlled substance.
7. You've mastered the art of placing large quantities of pancakes and eggs on a plate without anything touching.
8. Your child
insists that you read "Once Upon a Potty" out loud in the lobby of Grand Central Station and you do it.
9. You cling to the high moral ground on toy weapons; your child chews his toast into the shape of a gun.
10. You hope ketchup is a vegetable, since it's the only one your child eats.
11. You can't bear the thought of your son's first girlfriend.
12. You hate the thought of his wife even more.

13. You find yourself cutting your husdband's sandwiches into cute shapes.
14. You can't bear to give away baby clothes - it's so final.
15. You hear your mother's voice coming out of your mouth when you say, "NOT in your good clothes!"
16. You stop criticizing the way your mother raised you.
17. You donate to charities in the hope that your child won't get that disease.

18. You hire a sitter because you haven't been out with your husband in ages, then spend half the night checking on the kids.
19. You use your own saliva to clean your child's face.
20. You say at least once a day, "I'm not cut out for this job", but you know you wouldn't trade it for the world.

 This was so easy and we all enjoyed pulling it apart. not the most cooth thing, but hey, who needs etiquette when your having fun?

I just got finished cleaning my office. it's amazing how fast one can become unorganized. I hate clutter, so it was either do or die. So now it's off to game stop to replace two broken DS Lites( oh what joy), and to the gardens to take lots of outdoor pictures . It's amazing outside, right now. Saturdays are our family drive drives. We get in the car and just go, no destination, just drive. I would love to take this opportunity to sleep,lol but with Garrett at the helm, one must always be alert,lol. He is a good-bad driver. Those are the ones who love to drive so are always so willing to do it, but thy put your life in danger because they can't drive a straight line...YEP that is him. he i going to kill me for saying that.

To be honest I don't feel like moving right now, I'm not feeling myself( ladies I know some of you can relate monthly) but it's one of those push through days. So even as I'm type this out. I'm pushing,lol. I have no idea yet what will be having for dinner. Chili sounds nice.

A day in my life!

The chidlren didn't have school today which was fabulous to me. I can't standing getting up with them in the mornings. lol. However I do it but because I have to.Most times I'm already up working, but when I do manage to sleep, I hate when that alarm rings! So they sleep in and we had a very late breakfast. I made some homemade maple sausage the other day, so today we tried it. I think i need to go back to the drawling board on that one. It wasn't all that mapliy,lol( I know not a word). Breakfast was good, clean up , not so much!

For lunch we had air pudding. YUM! I think everyone should try it. It's fat free and less feeling. You could actually eat it all day and never ever get full. In case you have no clue what air pudding is, here is the recipe...

1 cup of Nada anyways you please! Your done. How simple is that???

I took a much needed nap on my love seat while watching reruns of SG1 on my laptop. I only woke up because I forgot to turn on the cooling fan and it burned my thighs.LOL. I jumped up and stumbled down the hall to the bathroom, only to find the door locked and a meowing cat on the other side of it. I demanded Tiara open it, so i could see what was going on. I only wish I hadn't!

Question:Why are cats so skinny and angry after being washed ?

I demanded the bathroom to be cleaned due to the drowning of Tommy cat and jumped in the shower, that's right it was almost 1 something and I hadn't yet . Does this make me a bad person? Maybe,lol... However I knew I had no company coming and had only planned on going one place. soooooooooo

I sat back down to re watch my SG1 and then woke up again because my doorbell rang. I don't even remember falling asleep but I apparently did. I stammered over tot he door opened it and a lady introduced herself to me and said she was here to pick up free cycle??? So i handed her a bag of what i thought was clothing, but I was so sleepy, i ended up handing her a bag of trash. ( home embarrassing!!!!). My daughter sitting there, knowing what i did, started cracking up, but did not correct me... Why because she is a Stinky Teen, who loves to see others demise. I can only imagine what this lady was thinking. She most likely thought I was drunk being i was walking around a half sleep state. She took the bag though and went on her way. Once i sat down and finally got out of my child why she was laughing so hard. I jumped up and called the lady and apologized repeatably. Thank God she had a sense of humor. She brought my trash back and exchanged it for the bag og clothing I had originally promised her.

Ok last but not least... Dinner Fried chicken with a extra bit of dry
unseasoned green beans, and the best mac and cheese EVER! Serious, that was the only thing that was good. it was awesome.... so we sat down and ate or horrible meal( exception mac and cheese). and watched Fireproof. If you haven't seen this movie, i advise you to do so. it was really great.

Ok... any typos... Hey I'm still sleepy and when i'm doing i'm going right back on the couch.

The Enemy is attacking me!!!( OH Brother)

 Repostng my old blogs

First off, let me say I was at one time the worlds worst typist,lol those of you that know me know that to have been the case, However the Lord got onto me about it and I'm working very hard to become one of the best... So with that said, there I'm sure will be some typos here and there , but just know the God is not threw with me yet and pray that i get better with each and every word i type. With that types...

My rant!

I hear this more often than I even care to admit right now and I have to say... It makes me so mad! Everyday I'm faced with someone going through something in their lives and the first thing that say or do is blame it on satan instead of either falling to their knees in prayer or holding themselves accountable for their own actions.

How is it we have come to the conclusion as Christians that each and everything bad or negative things that happens in our lives is because of the enemy? When did we decided to allow that demon to have so much authority in and over our daily lives?

Prime example...Today I go outside to start my truck and it won't turn over, the person with me hollas out, Oh Lord Satan is really attacking you sister! So how is it his attack was was stopped when The Lord put on me the mind to go over ,pick up my water hose and add water to the battery? The truck started right up... Now seriously, was that an attack of the enemy or ME not tending to my vehicle? If you answered me... you are right?

So how many of us refuse to hold ourselves accountable for our own actions? I think if you really pay attention you can easily say over half as willing to just lay the blame on the enemy, thus giving him more credit then he deserves. There is no doubt in my mind after you giving him so much credit, he will eventually step in and gladly take over keeping drama and confusion in and around your life. However you made it so easy for him to do it.

Saints and friends, we have got to do better here. It makes no sense to me at all, but lately I have been doing some serious studies on spiritual warfare and I'm starting to see that those of us who are called to ministry need to step our game and start teaching the truth directly from the Word of God and stop leaning so much into our own understanding and then passing it off to others as truth.

The Truth Is...

People's beliefs concerning Satan range from the silly to the abstract—from a little red guy with horns who sits on your shoulder urging you to sin, to an expression used to describe the personification of evil. The Bible, however, gives us a clear portrait of who Satan is and how he affects our lives. Put simply, the Bible defines Satan as an angelic being who fell from his position in heaven due to sin and is now completely opposed to God, doing all in his power to thwart God's purposes.

Satan was created as a holy angel. Isaiah 14:12 possibly gives Satan’s pre-fall name as Lucifer. Ezekiel 28:12-14 describes Satan as having been created a cherubim, apparently the highest created angel. He became arrogant in his beauty and status and decided he wanted to sit on a throne above that of God (Isaiah 14:13-14; Ezekiel 28:15; 1 Timothy 3:6). Satan’s pride led to his fall. Notice the many “I will” statements in Isaiah 14:12-15. Because of his sin, God barred Satan from heaven.

Satan became the ruler of this world and the prince of the power of the air (John 12:31; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Ephesians 2:2). He is an accuser (Revelation 12:10), a tempter (Matthew 4:3; 1 Thessalonians 3:5), and a deceiver (Genesis 3; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Revelation 20:3). His very name means “adversary” or “one who opposes.” Another of his titles, the devil, means “slanderer.”

Even though he was cast out of heaven, he still seeks to elevate his throne above God. He counterfeits all that God does, hoping to gain the worship of the world and encourage opposition to God's kingdom. Satan is the ultimate source behind every false cult and world religion. Satan will do anything and everything in his power to oppose God and those who follow God. However, Satan’s destiny is sealed—an eternity in the lake of fire (Revelation 20:10).

So now you know and should know better than to keep giving him more credit than he deserves. Start knowing , understanding and teaching the truth and start teaching the God is the only one who is really in control at all times.

Much Love,

Anna Marie

Money is NOT the problem

I'm re-posting my old blogs this is one of them.

Money is NOT the problem...we are! I am standing by this...

James 1:12 - Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.

Mark collapsed in his desk chair. What a day, he thought. His project at work was late, 2 weeks late to be precise and his manager was not happy about it. She had made that very clear to him during a meeting earlier today. Driving home had taken him more than an hour due to an accident on the freeway. Under normal circumstances, the drive would take less than 20 minutes. He missed dinner with his family, something he always look forward to and cherished. Instead, he had just finished eating the microwaved leftovers by himself.

To top things off, he once again was unable to mow the lawn as it was dark once he finally got home and had dinner. He was only about 2 weeks behind on it and was expecting a “reminder” letter from the HOA any day now.

Looking towards the desk, he spotted the checkbook, and next to it a huge pile of bills just waiting to be paid. Mark had put “bill night” off as long as he could. A few were already overdue and a few others due within the next day or two.

Turning on the fluorescent desk light, he began opening each one and adding them up…

1. HOA Letter reminding him to mow his yard - figures he thought to himself. Sighing, he tossed it in the trash
2. Samson’s Workout World - $90 ($40 for last month - he had forgot to pay, $10 late fee, and $40 for this month). Funny thing was, neither him or his wife had been there in 6 months. They kept meaning, just never had the time.
3. Ford Motor Credit - $520 (Total Balance $15,000) - They had purchased a new SUV last year
4. Southeast Hospital - $1,600 (for his daughter Sarah’s stay in the hospital 6 months ago)
5. Visa - $300 (Total Balance: $8,312)
6. Discover Card - $119 (Total Balance: $3,217)

“Wow, this doesn’t even include the mortgage!”, he said out loud to himself. He opened his paycheck he had received earlier that day and winced as he looked at the amount. His check wouldn’t even cover the minimum payments.

He sighed, knowing he now had to do the thing he had feared most, “Samantha? Honey, we need to talk…”


Mark is in what I like to call, financial chaos. Not only is his personal life stressful and hectic, his finances are a mess making his level of stress exponentially higher. He has more incoming than he has outgoing. He’s facing bills that are falling behind, late fees and way he’s in way too much debt. To top it off, he had a bad day at work, a terrible drive home, missed dinner with his family, and now he has to tell his wife they can’t make the minimum payments on all of their bills. Mark and Samantha are being tested. Ever been in their shoes? Does this maybe all sound too familiar?

Mark and Samatha have two options for how to handle their situation (note: I didn’t say Mark’s situation) :

1. They can get angry, ask God why he is letting this happen to them and wonder why their non-Christian neighbors get by just fine. This is what most people tend tend to do. They pray and don’t change their behavior at all, hoping that God will just make it all away. But we don’t change one bit.
2. Understand that God tests our faith and gives us what seems to sometimes be insurmountable problems but never gives us more than we can handle (1 Corinthians 10:13). How we handle the test is really what drives us to success and allows us to follow the path that God is trying to lead us down.

We as humans, have a tendency to want to blame everyone but ourselves for our problems including God. How often have you asked God why He was allowing some bad thing to occur in your life? Shamefully, I have, far too many times.

When the storms of life began to blow a little harder than we are comfortable with, instead of becoming angry or frustrated, we need to realize that the situation is most likely a test. A test designed to see how we will react. A test designed to test our faith and the strength of our relationship with God. God does indeed test us, and does so to increase our faith. 1 Thessalonians 2:4 says “On the contrary, we speak as men approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel. We are not trying to please men but God, who tests our hearts.” Deuteronomy 8:2 reminds us that God also does this to humble us and better know us, “Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the desert these forty years, to humble you and to test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands.”

When we are tested we two options, pass or fail. Who wants to fail God? I certainly don’t. Each time you face a trial or difficult time in your life, ask yourself is God testing me? Chances are He is. Don’t fail Him and look at the trial as a chance to learn and strengthen your relationship with him. God has a plan for everything that occurs in your life, regardless of how big or how small, and that plan is always in our best interest.

Going back to personal finance, God wants us to be good stewards with out money (Luke 16). Luke 16:10 tells us - “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much“.

Make every effort to be a good steward and to pass the tests, trials and tribulations (James 1:2) you may face daily.

So what happened to Mark and Samantha? Let’s find out …


Mark informed Sarah of the bad news. It wasn’t a pleasant conversation, but fortunately, this chaotic financial moment became the turning point for their finances. They decided to pass the test and show God they could be good stewards of their finances. The recognized that their “I want it now” mentality was the ultimate cause of their financial situation. They realized their situation was a way of God teaching them good stewardship and to help them get on a better path. That evening, they recognized they were the problem. They decided to work on their finances together, they developed a budget, to hold each other accountable, and to reduce their expenses to live on less than they earn.

The next morning, Mark listed their the new SUV they had purchased on Craigslist and sold it that week. They owed more on it than it was worth and had to borrow some money to pay the difference, but owing $2,000 was better than owing $15,000.

Mark got a second job working at UPS in the evenings. They took the first UPS paycheck and got current on their bills. They then saved up a $1,500 emergency fund and developed a debt snowball. They began paying as much as they could on their debt. A few weeks later they realized the house they had was just too way too much for them, so they sold it and bought a smaller home a little further out of the city that was significantly cheaper. They found the smaller home was really nice, as it required less upkeep and allowed them to spend more time with themselves and their children.

Two years later, Mark and Samantha signed the check that would pay-off their Visa card, their last debt. They had a nice home that was well within their means, two payed for used cars than ran well, and a ton of spare money each month they could allocate to their 401k savings program and their 6 months emergency fund. Both of them made a number of sacrifices during that two years. They didn’t eat out much and spent more time at home. They never stopped tithing and continued to tithe 10% each month. It was hard, but they did. Mark and Samantha both agreed it was worth the effort. The freedom they now felt could not be explained in words.

Mark and Samantha passed the test, will you?

I'm Sorry

  • Maybe you yelled at your child because they weren't moving fast enough, but the real problem was that you were late because of your lack of planning. You took your frustration on your child and that wasn't fair.
  • Maybe you let your emotions get the best of you in a business setting and you've said some things that you now regret. Or maybe you still feel they were right, but just not appropriate to say out loud.
  • Maybe you turned a small annoyance into a full blown fight with your spouse right before dinner because you are really frustrated about some bigger issue that may or may not have to do with him or her.
  • Maybe you dropped the ball on something important because you didn't plan well. First inclination? Is there someone or something else to blame? Ever done that?

Sorry is a powerful word and if used correctly, will heal wounds, open doors ad bring about peace and order in your life. Yet one of the most difficult things for any of us to do is to admit when we're wrong. It might be that we believe we are right or it might be that our spirit becomes too prideful to humble ourselves to say those simple words, "I'm sorry." It's also difficult to say you're sorry to someone who might not appreciate that you are. Sometimes the person we've offended is prideful themselves and we don't want to say we're sorry just to have it taken as a point of weakness.

Regardless of the reason for one's resistance, we have much to learn about humility from the Bible. David shares in Psalm 25:9, "Good and upright is the LORD; therefore He teaches sinners in the way. The humble He guides in justice and the humble He teaches His way."  

We should be able to come to a place where we can admit when we're wrong and not take it personally, rather a place for us to grow from. I personally have much more respect for those who can humble themselves when they need to and very little for those who can not. Saying sorry does not mean your weak, weak minded or a doormat. Instead it screams I'm strong, willing and able to do whats right and the right thing to do, when you have wronged someone is to give a heartfelt...

Back down memory lane

(disclaimer: These are only childhood memories, can't say much more than that,lol)

Last night I had an opportunity to talk to a young lady(yes because we are still young,lol I'm only 25 for the umpteenth year.) that I went to school with name Amy. I truly enjoyed our talk, such as it was, because we basically laughed through he entire conversation.

It's funny when you think of your high school. I know so many people may cringe, but despite all I went though , the good, the bad and the extremely ugly, I really enjoyed it. I can't say I remember my high school being extremely clique, however there was defiantly groups of faithful friends. My rule back then, pretty much the way it is now, if you got along with me, I got alone with you. I could have cared less about your hair, or fashion sense, the money your parents had or car your drove. Heart and personality always carried a big impact on my acceptance of an individual.

So anyways Amy and I were cracking up about a trip to a spook house. I was about 14 and driving very illegally yet I was allowed to do so, so I did. So it was decided a group of us would head about 10 miles out of our city to go to a this spook house that was once a old hospital called Jane Chin. It was rumored to be haunted, so our desire to get there was stronger than ever( we had no clue back then about dipping and dabbling in things like that, it was only fun for us, Thank God for his mercy and wisdom now.). I went from house to house picking up all that was going with us. it wasn't until I got to a friends house, that a her mother questioned my age and ability to be driving. at which I had no real response, because I had no desire to lie ( hahahah I was such a perfect little angel,lol) but I didn't have to because another one of the young ladies, quickly spoke up for me and told the other girls young mother, I had permission and I was a very safe driver. So we all loaded up and off we went with a curfew.

We arrived safely, got in line giggling and acting like typical teens. We entered the spook house and the fun began. I don't think any of us realized just how scary it really was. We screeched,screamed, cried and even hit every creature that came at us. At one point one a young lady hit one of the masked villains of doom so hard they ended up stopping us, turning on the lights and checking the poor guy and only let us continue with a warning not to do it again. ROTF Poor Amy, got so scared at one point while we were forced to walk on our knees in one section, ran directly into a heating duct(???)and she jacked herself up pretty good. LOL sorry Amy, it was funny,lol. Upon making it out, we instantly gained our nerves of steal back and all had a great laugh about our experience. It was time to get home because the curfew was closely approaching.Things were going great until, I managed to fall in a hole and ended up throwing the car keys off into the darkness and into tons of fall leaves. LOL. Talk about the fear of God being placed in 5 young girls with the though of being late for curfew. We all searched frantically for those keys on our hands and knees until we found them.

Now I don't remember if we made it home on time, or if any of us got in trouble, but I do remember having a very silent ride home,lol
