Count Rockula

Last night was the Tricks for Treats at Petsmart. My niece and nephew came and so did my mom and sister in law. They had cake and snacks for the people and treats for the dogs. There were so many cute costumes. My niece had a blast. It was a lot of fun and I'm glad I went. My niece walked in the parade with me and she just had so much fun she didn't want to leave. Despite having a double ear infection and a sinus infection, I had a blast too.
Without further ado, here are some pictures. No, those aren't my legs and that rottweiler is Lexi, she showed up late to the party and her "mom" wanted to have her picture taken with Rocky. My mom took tons of pictures that I will post when I get them.

Yes, I am still alive!

I'm alive and well. I've just been super busy. School is winding down, I have about 4 weeks left and all of a sudden the workload has tripled. I've been hitting the gym at least 3-5 times a week and I've been visiting everyone else's blogs. I just haven't had time to blog myself. You guys have been keeping me very busy.

Work is great. I still love my new job. I love my dogs. School is crazy as I mentioned. Once this term is over I'll get to only take one class at a time.

Halloween is coming up and I'm excited. Rocky will be wearing his Dracula costume and participating in Petsmart's Tricks for Treats and he will be in Petco's Halloween Costume contest. I'm going a little overboard, but I paid $15 for that costume and I want my money's worth.

I'm also trying to meet someone. A little unsuccessfully, but still, I'm giving it a shot.

So, that's about all I've got. I've been keeping up on your lives and everyone seems well. I'm glad for that.

Would anyone like to do another guest post for me? Please?

WTF is This World Coming To???!!!!!

I have no idea. I'm struggling to comprehend the violence that seems to have taken over this world. Three violent, deadly school shootings in one week?? What are the odds and why??

Some man walks into a school and senselessly kills a 16 year old girl. I was reading on CNN that her family would like people to go out and commit random acts of kindness to combat this. I'm still trying to figure out what I'm going to do as I plan on honoring that young girl who was killed by a coward as she tried to flee.

A 15 year old boy walks into his school and guns down his principal. Both of their lives are now over.

And today, a man walks into an Amish school and executes three innocent, young girls, ages 6 to 13. It makes me sick. This man has three children of his own, that he probably would have protected with his life, yet he took away someone else's babies. And for what? CNN says it was to avenge something that happened to him 2 decades ago. TWO FUCKING DECADES AGO???? These precious little lives were not even born back then.

I go back and forth debating whether or not I actually want kids and then something like this happens and I decide that I don't want kids. I don't think that I can bring children into this horrible world. This world has become horrible. I'm sure that this feeling will pass, but I just don't understand this horror. I think of my niece and of all my friends who have young kids. How terrifying something like this must be.

My heart goes out to the families of these poor children.
