I had a great day yesterday! First off, the day before I got some checks in the mail from my aunt and uncle. They had won the powerball lottery back in January. I wasn't really expecting anything tbh so it was a real blessing. They gave only what they could b/f taxes would be taken. They each gave my husband and I $13,000 which came to a grand total of $52, 000! Not bad when you thought you weren't getting anything!
Second, we have been looking for a car for my son. We wanted something that wouldn't require collision but reliable. After many hours and days of searching, taking time to go see the cars and disappointments, we finally got one! It was just perfect! We got him a 1999 Nissan Maxima GXE. It has a 130,000 miles and it is in excellant condition. She was the original owner. Best of all we got a great price, $3300 about $700 under blue book value.
I felt like I was walking on clouds yesterday! I am blessed :)

This pic took me awhile , but it paid off! I won the round and made it to the finals. I was worried about their poses, but wanted her standing in front of him so I could make the wings look combined. Guess I could have had his head tilting in towards her. This was actually my second picture I did, gave up on the other though it was complete. This is the first one.

Human blood! So reviving! Courtney closed her eyes as she felt her body come to life, so to speak….an energy she hadn’t felt in awhile. Her eyes opened to see the dead doctor lying in a pool of blood on the floor. What had she done! No matter how good the outcome feels, the price is not worth it. There was no way of hiding what she had done. He was only trying to help her. Maybe he was right, becoming human might have been the right choice, but now it was too late….or was it? Courtney crouched over the doctor’s body and removed his name tag. It was late and the hospital was like a ghost town. Courtney found a directory and located the doctor’s office and proceeded in that direction. She had a mission. She entered the quiet and neat office of the doctor, “It has to be here somewhere”, Courtney thought. At first she started to go through the office neatly and carefully but soon frustration took over when she couldn’t find what she was looking for. She was filled with furry and then she froze, there it was or what she thought it was, what else could it be? Without giving it a second thought, Courtney took the container and drank it. At first she felt nothing and was discouraged thinking it didn’t work and that the doctor was nuts. Her head started to throb and an excruciating cramp in her stomach over took her. Something was happening and it was painful, it took all Courtney had not to scream out in pain. What was minutes seemed like an eternity to Courtney. Her body was becoming warm but something wasn’t right, she could sense it and then it stopped. She felt different, but not human, could this be right? She glanced over and saw her reflection in the doctor’s medicine cabinet and she let out a horrific scream! A knock on the doctor’s door startled Courtney! In desperation to escape she jumped out the window. How did she land on her feet when she was 7 stories up? What has she become, a monster? Courtney started to run and run, not knowing where she was going. Courtney was crossing over the Bridgeport Bridge when she stopped to catch her breath, realizing that she was actually out of breath. Then she felt something foreign to her or actually something she hasn’t felt in hundreds of years….her heartbeat. She was alive, only not human. A smile actually adorned Courtney’s distorted face. If she is alive then she could die…couldn’t she? Courtney sat on the ledge of the bridge and stared into the distance, it wouldn’t be long until sunrise she thought. And at that moment she threw herself back off the bridge into the air plunging down into the rocky waters below. “I will finally be free”, were Courtney’s last words.
