October movie #1

Hello everyone.  I am a bit behind with a month of my favorite Halloween-ish movies.  Not all of them are scary.  Some are funny, some are gross, some creepy and some are about magic and Love.  But they are all my favorites and I want to share them with you.

The first Movie I have chosen for my month of  movies is Coraline!

I know that it is a Kids movie but I have to tell you it scares the ba-jesus outta me!  It really is a dark little movie.  The “Other Mother” creeps me out and I have to say that it makes me want to check under my bed before I go to sleep.  I mean it is a basic story.  Little girl and her family move to the country to get away from the city and start fresh.  Parents still ignore the little girl because they are to busy with life.  Little girl finds secret passage to a topsie tervie world where everything is perfect in every way, just to realize that perfect does not mean good! She fights the evil Mother and returns to her not so perfect world and lives happily ever after!  This is the short version of it but I promise it is worth the watch.  Check it out and let me know what you think.

Until then,

Wende

Fall is My Fave!

Well here we are, the best season of all is upon us, FALL oh how I have missed you. I mean it is still in the 90’s here in my home town, but I am still decorated and ready for bonfire nights. How about you?

I know that I said I have a ton to tell you from my time away so here we go.  “Takes deep breath”, My Mom was diagnosed with Breast cancer last October.  She had a few surgeries to remove the affected areas, went through radiation and is now hoping to keep a clean bill of health.  She is one tough Lady!  I was so proud of her through this entire journey and I am so glad that she is doing well.  One day at a time is how we live these days and it is good.

Second, at the ripe age of 43, my Husband finally decided what he wanted to be when he grew up… He went and signed up for the Mobile Police Academy! He went through the interview, polygraph, physical fitness test and they chose him to be one of the Recruits.  He was the oldest guy in class!  I tell you what I have never been more amazed at the dedication he has shown through the 3 months of training these guys endured.  He came home black and blue, limping, bloody and so sore that he could hardly walk, but he never complained. He studied hard every night, took long hot showers, slathered on sore muscle cream and got up every day and did it all over again.  3 month came and went and on Jun 30, 2017 my husband was awarded his Badge and he graduated the Academy.  I am so proud to say that he is now Officer Stephen Scroggins.  It was one of the most amazing things that I have been a part of, seeing all of the guys stand and take the oath to Protect and Serve their communities.

Now I am a Police Wife and I LOVE it.  I can not sit here and say that it isn’t nerve-racking at times because it most certainly is.  I worry every time he leaves for Duty, but I know that he is out doing what he loves.

One perk is that i get to go to the FBI Gun Range with him!! I always love his off Saturdays.

So now you know what I have been doing for the several months I was away.   I am going to start my October Movie of the week posts this week, so keep in touch!

Until Then,

I’m back!

Well I just wanted to sign on and say that I am back in the blog realm.  My husband was so thoughtful and got me my own domain for my blog but it did not meet my expectations!  All I got was spam messages, no new readers, subscribers, followers.  It actually really made me sad and I was no longer excited about my blog.  So I am moving everything back here to my original place of blogging. I missed you guys and hope to get back what I have been neglecting.   I have a ton of things to tell you so let the blogging begin, Again!

Glad to be back at it.

Until Then,

Wende S.

A Little Time Off

Thanks Giving greetings,

Sorry that I have been MIA this month but things have been Not so Good around my house.  My eldest (14 year old) Fur Baby “Ennis” took a turn for the worse, health wise.   He had a stroke about a 8 months ago and we found out that he has Cushing’s disease. These things have pretty much made him very weak and his muscles are just deteriorating.  We have to carry him in and out of the house and also to eat or drink water.  He did not even have the strength to shift positions when he was lying in his bed.  His eye sight was quickly failing, his hearing the same.   Just this past Sunday he began to not eat and his water intake was very minimal.  We knew that his time with us was limited. We had a decision to make no matter how hard it would be.

On Wednesday November 23, 2016 I said good bye to my best friend, soul mate, kindred spirit, Familiar.  My heart is shattered and my spirit burns less bright with him gone.

14 years ago this handsome boy chose me to be his human and my life has been better because of it.

The day he found me

Each day is hard. I miss him so much but I know that he is happy and free running the fields with his 2 sisters.  No pain, no worries just happy and free.

Until we meet again,
