I've been working on my little project: Operation Move That House. Or something like that. Yesterday I decided to tackle my craft supplies. I discovered that I have more fabric and felt than any one person should have and that I thought at one time that I was going to open a stamping store.
I had lots of hard decisions to make regarding my crafting future and purged lots of stuff. I know I love to quilt and make pillows so I kept most of the sewing stuff. And the stamping supplies because you never know....
I also got my new iPhone 4 yesterday and I had to spend some time getting to know my new friend. I love it...by the way. And it will probably be my last new toy since soon...my standard of living will be lowered.
While decluttering yesterday, I came across a photo album from 1994-1995. It only had a handful of pictures but the one's I saw made memories flood back.

I don't talk about my marriage to Billy very much because it was a really dark, hard time in my life. There were times that I didn't think I could live through it and I wanted to end it all.

Seeing these pictures prompted me to google his name and I was shocked at everything that came up!
- Applied for a marriage license (but not married).
- Been arrested for Assault in the 3rd degree, menacing and child abuse.
- Re-arrested for violating his restraining order.
- Fathered a baby boy named Charlie.
- Graduated from a community college with a certificate in welding.
And 10 days ago...his baby mama was arrested for contempt. I had that in spades for him...thank god no one ever caught me!!
I'm counting my lucky stars that I got away from him when I did. And I'm so sad for little Charlie...2 1/2 months old and his Mom was in jail.
Today...I'm hitting the town with Shannon, Sara to have some drinks (milk for Shannon...she's 8 months pregnant) and see a movie. I'm completely disgusted that Sex and The City 2 is not long playing in many theaters! Whatever...
