Today was a bloody mess, but I know God is still in control.



Today was a bloody mess, literally. Well, it wasn't as bad as it looks, but it did bleed a lot. The thing is, it should have never happened and it's kind of upsetting. Yesterday I received my new car tags in the mail. I was happy because I was able to save up the money over a couple of months, in order to get them. My car is over twenty years old, so the cost of my tags is about ninety dollars a year. This year I didn't need to get a smog check and saved a bunch of money. The unfortunate thing is that because I live in such a shady apartment, I have to keep an eye on my car tags. Last year, someone attempted to tamper with them.


I wasn't surprised because my car has been broken into a few times already. I read somewhere that it's a good idea to use a razor and cut lines up and down on the new car tag. This is supposed to make taking the tag off a lot more difficult. However, I didn't have a razor, so I broke a disposable razor into pieces. I took one of the tiny blades and cut my new tag up and down once I stuck it on my driver's license plate. Unfortunately, I wasn't care enough and cut my finger in multiple spots. I bleed all over the place and had a really hard time stopping the bleeding. On top of that, I was running late and had to go pick up my son from school. I was so stressed out! I hate living in the apartment complex I live in currently. There are some really bad people just hanging out in the parking lot everyday. I'm sure they are responsible for my car getting burglarized, but I really can't do anything about it. My car battery has been stolen twice since I lived here. They somehow pried open my car's hood and just took my battery. Even when I bought a bicycle lock, someone cut the wire and stole my battery.

I could live with the fact that they stole my battery, even though I had to ask my ex girlfriend to help me buy another one. The thing that upset me the most was the time around Christmas, someone somehow broke into my car and stole my son's car seat. I mean, who would do such a thing? Not only did they steal his car seat, they stole the portable CD player that had children's songs in it. My car's radio doesn't work, so I used that CD player, in order to play music that would help my son's speech. I can't say that I enjoyed the songs, but I know he needs help because I have him enrolled in speech therapy at his school. I remember explaining to him that morning that someone took it, and I was sorry. He was so disappointed. I can forgive people who steal from me, but I can't forget how they hurt my son in the process.


For the past month or so, I've been forced to bring in my car battery every night. I figure it's the only way I can keep it from being stolen again. I have to carry it inside my apartment in a torn up Target store bag. I do this for I can hide it from the people in the parking lot, as well as my neighbors. Then I have to put it back inside my car every morning before I take my son to school. It's just a tedious process, but I'm out of ideas. I know a car battery shouldn't be taken out and then back in everyday because the car's alternator keeps the battery charged, but again, I'm out of ideas. At least I was able to stop the leak from my transmission, for now. My car isn't running good and it's going to die sooner or later, but I need a car. A car lets me keep my relationship with my son. I don't know how I would go on, if I didn't have him in my life. Honestly, if there's anyone in The Sacramento County area that has an extra car that they don't need. Please contact me: Arichere@yahoo.com  It can't be an expensive car because I have to able to afford the insurance.



My day wasn't all bad. My son and I watched a tiny squirrel play on a tree. The adorable rodent just stayed, as it looked at me and my son, for what seemed like five minutes. God is great, and he's in control.
