30!

For the past 11 months and 23 days I have been emphatically anti-birthday. I absolutely refuse to turn 30. It cant really be possible that I have been on this earth for 30 years. How can that be? I dont know the answer  to that but I do know that I have and no matter...

Never Pet The Sweaty Sh!t

I have been a really blag Blogger. My last post was like 2 months ago. If you look to this blog to stay up to date on the fun filled life of Jessika Carpenter – you’ve been missing a LOT! Back in November, I wrote a blog about how my life was going to...

Another Scar With A Story

” Am I loud and clear? Or do I gotta scream like I did every day when I was a troubled teen, huh? Do you want to know my past and see every single scar and know what they mean, huh?” I listened to this song about 368 times this week. Each time t gives me...

A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE

The last 30 days of my life have proven to be the most difficult.  When it rains, it pours and the second week of November brought about a monsoon! I totally bombed the wedding I officiated, my Mother in Law was in a terrible car accident, I was wrestling with the...

To tattoo or not to tattoo ……

For as far back as I can remember, my Mom has always said that tattoos are trashy. People with tattoos cant get real jobs and if I ever thought about getting one she would disown me. She wasnt being serious about disowning me, after everything I put my parents...

Mommy & Max

I have been neglecting my blog lately. I havent really been any busier than normal so Im not sure why. A lot of progress has been made since my last post. I have a consultation with a surgeon set for next week. The mental strain of realizing that I am going to have...

Crying over spilled soy sauce

Yesterday was a pretty fabulous day until 7 am. I got up at 630 , had a cup of coffee and got dressed. While I was pulling my shirt on I heard the kids scream. I walked into the kitchen to find every condiment you could think of out on the tile. Bottles were broken,...

7 Days

After waiting for what seems like an eternity on minimal activity orders, I finally have a date for my surgery! I say surgery, procedure might be more suiting. Never the less, I have a long awaited date. It is very strange for me to think about how it will be after...

Paved the way for a Great Day

This weekend Nick and I attended a very special BBQ. This particular BBQ was thrown by DFW NORML &  UNT NORML and was held at the VA hospital in Dallas. The NORML family fed around 250 Veterans that are currently admitted into the hospital. There were all sorts of...

The Punisher

Jackson is my oldest son. He is 8 years old and everything a Mom could want in a little boy. He is smart, funny, intelligent and has a heart of gold.  He is very well behaved and has excellent manners. Recently, he made a bad decision (as we all do) and had to be...

I dont know how you do it

“I dont know how you do it.” I hear that so often it makes me want to scream. I know, most of the time, when people say it, that its meant to be encouraging. Its a form of praise, wow you are doing something that I couldnt! But it still annoys me to no...

Learn to live with a broken heart

This weekend, everyone in the DFW area was shocked to learn that long time radio DJ Kidd Kraddick had died suddenly of a brain aneurysm. Whether you enjoyed the show or  not you knew who he was and all about his Kidds Kid charity. There are always so many questions...

Good without God

This past Thursday was the 4th of July. Nick and Maxwell went down to the annual Arlington Independence Day parade. You had the usual paradees , the Boy Scout troops, High School Cheerleaders and bands, the Elvis on motorcycles club, but this year, there was a...

TOGETHER we can do this

So a few weeks ago , I took another pretty serious hit in the health department. As usual, I was totally unprepared and completely shocked at the news. The Doctor used phrases such as “unimaginable damage” and “worst case scenario”. In true...

Completely Necessary

Some days I feel so good that I forget that Im not ok. Sometimes I am so busy that it doesnt matter. Then there are days like today when my body reminds me. Sunday I spent a few hours catching Max as he jumped off the steps in the pool. Monday I did a pretty intense...

Someone that I used to know

When I moved back to Arlington to restart my life I landed a great job and met some pretty fantastic people. I quickly bonded with one person in particular and for the first time in YEARS I had a best friend. Historically any best friends that I have acquired have...
