White Hart Renaissance Faire

Yesterday I went to the White Hart Ren. Faire. I go every year and always have a good time and spend more than I intend to. This year I dressed sorta pirate style. I wore these loose baggy black pants that I love, a light white shirt, and my black red and gold dragon corset. I also carried a peacock tail fan. I meant to take a picture when I got home but I just wanted to get out of my corset. It wasn't so tight it hurt but after 4 hours it becomes uncomfortable.

While there I bought a cane sword topped with two dragons surrounding a big blue ball. I like it, but I wish the ball was a stone or a different shade but I do love the dragons; plus I've always wanted a cane sword. I, also bought a black hip scarf with silver coins. I have done some belly dancing but haven't owned a hip wrap before. I got my Dad his father's day gift, a new knife to crave with. And of course I bought some food.

It was a little weird at the start, I ran into my best friend from high school, Bobbie. I haven't seen her in around nine years. When we were kids I stuck to her like glue. When we were in high school she dated a man named Marty. She dropped out in our junior year but we stayed close for a couple of years. She married Marty a year or so later she left him. After that She just disappeared. It hurt my feelings for a long time that she just forgot about me. Eventually time heals all wounds and I've moved on. Heck, I didn't even recognize her. She's remarried and has a couple of kids now. She looked happy, and better than when I knew her.

After that I walked around, saw a couple of shows, and talked to a nice couple about horror movies and books.

Well the girls' foster mother is keeping the girls. Granted it would be better if they were with their mother but at least their foster mother cares for them. Their mom has a long road ahead of her but she's going to keep fighting.

Some good news, I registered for College classes on Friday. On Mondays I'll be taking Math 050 followed by IDS 110, on Tuesdays COM 115, Wednesday MTH 050 again, Thursday SOC 150 and PLS 101. I'm also taking CIS 101 online. I'm looking forward to it, unfortunately my Pell won't cover all the cost of school. I'm not sure how I'm going to pay for all my school books but I'll manage. I might have to drop a course or two and take them next semester.

Bleeping DFS

Wright County Division of Family Services esp. Case Worker Naomi are full of Sh!t. My best friend is in a desperate fight with no way to win against them. They made a list of things she needed to do in order to get her kids back, and now they say that nothing she does will get them back instead it's up to a psychologist to determine whether she will get them back or not. This will be the third psych that the girls are going to and their mother has never met. The second psych put the youngest on a medicine thats not meant for anyone under the age of ten.

The youngest girl who just turned 6 has oppositional defiant disorder. Her mother spanked her with a belt ONCE because she broke her bedroom window with her fist during a fit. The girls have been with a foster mother who the girls and their mother trusts. She has been doing her best to provide a stable home for the girls during this horrible time. Now Naomi wants them placed in a stage 3 home. So the girls' foster mother is having to fight to keep them.
