Hope: If I turn in to a vampire, do you want me to turn you too?
Me: If you're a bird, I'm a bird...

Could we be anymore cliche?

Oh well. I don't care...

Earthquake in Honduras [28 May 2009|07:17am]
Before you start reading.... La Ceiba is the city I used to live in and Hotel Paris is the hotel I grew up staying in when we had to stay in the city... I also used to stay at Gran Hotel Sula too.

TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (May 28) -A strong earthquake killed at least one man early Thursday as it collapsed homes in Honduras and Belize and sent people running into the streets in their pajamas as far away as Guatemala City.
The magnitude-7.1 quake struck at 3:24 a.m. at the relatively shallow depth of 6 miles, according to the U.S. Geological Survey in Golden, Colorado. The epicenter was 80 miles northeast of La Ceiba, Honduras.
"People were running for the door," said Alfredo Cedeno, an employee at the Gran Hotel Paris in La Ceiba. "You could really feel it and you could see it — the water came out of the pool."
A man died after his house collapsed in Pineda de la Lima, 120 miles north of the capital, Tegicugalpa, according to Carlos Gonzalez, deputy director of Honduras' Permanent Emergency Commission. A neighbor's house also collapsed, he said.
"Dozens of workers have been evacuated from factories in San Pedro Sula (in northern Honduras) because the buildings have cracks," he said. "There are cracks in the roads in several cities."
Juan Sevilla, a spokesman for Honduras' firefighters, said wooden homes collapsed in Puerto Cortes, 120 miles north of Tegucigalpa, as did a stadium wall in Comayagua, 60 miles north of the capital.
Osman Hernandez, a spokesman for the mayor of El Progreso, told Radio Satelite there was "serious damage" to Democracy Bridge, a 1957 span across Honduras' biggest river, the Ulua. He did not provide details of the damage.
Tegucigalpa Mayor Ricardo Alvarez appealed for calm as officials reported electricity, telephones and Internet connections were cut across a large part of Honduras.
"It was an earthquake of great proportions that was felt in almost the entire country," said Ana Maria Rivera, spokeswoman for the emergency commission.
In Belize, people rushed from their homes as glasses and framed pictures crashed off of shelves. At least five wooden houses on stilts collapsed in three towns and a water tower toppled in the town of Independence, local officials said. Electricity was out all the way to the Mexican border.
"I urge you not to panic, but to remain calm," National Emergency Minister Melvin Hulse said on the radio. "Your government is monitoring the situation and will be keeping you informed."
A tsunami watch was discontinued for Honduras, Belize and Guatemala.
Raul Gonzalez, a receptionist at the Gran Hotel Sula in San Pedro Sula, said guests ran into the streets in their pajamas.
"I ran out of the building and kept going for about a block before I looked back and everything had calmed," he said. "It was really strong. I have never felt anything like that."
He said the hotel did not suffer damage.
A two-story warehouse caught fire in San Pedro Sula but no injuries were reported, according to firefighter Lt. Col. Daniel Flores.
People ran into the streets as far away as Guatemala City, but firefighter Byron Juarez said a survey of firefighting offices throughout Guatemala revealed no reports of major damage.
The quake occurred in a region where the North American and Caribean plates come together, according to Gonzalo Cruz, head of geophysics at Honduras' National Autonomous University.
The USGS said a magnitude-4.8 aftershock struck off Honduras about three hours after the quake.

NEVER, and I repeat, NEVER watch P.S. I Love You when you are PMSing. I hadn't seen it so we decided to rent it from On Demand last night. Bad idea. We were both bawling. :) Juno was ok. It wasn't all that like I had heard.

I'm hungry...

 Certain things make me very angry. Oh well. Nothing I can do about it. I just need to give up. 

And this has nothing to do with Hope. Or our relationship.

Spent the weekend babysitting the two babies who are now almost 2 months. That was exhausting but fun. 

Today the search for a job continues. 

I have another niece or nephew on the way. The baby is due July 17th.

I miss my family. 

That is all.

I have been MIA the past weekend. Why? Because both Hope's niece and her nephew's fiancee decided to go in to labor Saturday night. One at Ocean Springs and the other at Singing River. Aiden Michael was born at 330 am at Singing River and Kaili Alyce was born at 113pm at Ocean Springs. Both on September 23rd. So we have been going to between hospitals seeing babies and holding them and feeding them. Pics to come soon.

 So, I am back from vacation. Now I need a vacation from my vacation.
Here is the run-down of the week.

Sunday- Decorated and helped with Misty's baby shower. Cleaned up. Left for Pcola. Left Pcola about 9pm. Drove to Orlando. Got lost 354687356786 times. Made it to the hotel at 5am. 

Monday- Got up close to noon and started moving around. Left Faith at the room. The rest of us went to Sea World. We had a blast. Hannah, Anna, and I rode all the rides. Gracie had her bouts of cranky tiredness but she was a trooper. She loved the fireworks at the end of the night. 

Tuesday- We all got up and went to Denny's for breakfast and headed to Magical Kingdom. Gracie threw some fits but we got past them. She was tired. We rode rides. Went to shows. Gracie loved the rockets and Magic Carpet rides. Hannah and I hit every roller coaster. The fireworks over the castle at the end of the night was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. 

Wednesday- We went souvenir shopping. My back started spasming, which sucked REALLY bad. We went to the Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum. Then we did some more shopping then went to the world's largest McDonald's. They had a gourmet menu, pizza, ice cream, etc. It was painted like a jungle. The two upstairs floors was all games and play area. We went back to room, I rested while the kids swam. Then we went to another museum that looked like an upside down building. There were some cool things to do in there.

Thursday- We got up bright and early and headed home. We made it back to MS in time to watch the Saints game at Michael's house. 

Friday- I went to Mobile for a job interview. Then we went to Grand Bay for a cook out.

Saturday- We chilled all day. Went to Buffalo Wild Wings with the family to watch some football. We were going to go to Joshua Sun but by the time we got down to Thunder's, the line was too long so we went home.

We came back to New Orleans last night. I just work today, tomorrow and Friday. We move to Mobile on Saturday.

We are post poning the wedding. We don't have the money to move and have the wedding plus there is some family drama surrounding it. So, I will update everyone once there is a new date set. We may just end up doing something just the two of us.  Who knows...

I will post pics once they are uploaded...

Well, all three turtles are doing well. My days off have changed from Tuesdays and Wednesdays off to Wednesdays and Thursdays. I am working over time on Wednesdays for now.  Sunday we are going to Hope's nieces baby shower and then leaving for Orlando. We are doing Disney World on Monday and Sea World on Tuesday. Maybe another day of Disney on Wednesday. Then we are coming back. Hope and I are going to stay at least one night in Mobile so we can go looking at some houses and apartments to find a place to live. I also am going to try to put in a few applications for jobs. 

I wanted to go see Evan's Blue last night but Kristal's knee was hurting from having surgery last week. So we just went to Lager's and ate and had a couple of beers.

Hope has a football meeting tonight. So I may work until 9. That gives me 13 hours for today. 

I'm tired.

So, I got home last night and all the turtles were still in their eggs.  I had to pull the shells off of them and set them in the tank. Two of the eggs were duds, they never turned in to turtles. We now have 3 baby turtles slightly bigger than a half dollar. Hope named them Reggie, Duece, and Brees. And she calls the tank the Supertank. Saints fan much? They are so cute. As soon as  I get the pictures uploaded from my camera, I will post them.
