The Worst ! An Update on ” Domestic Disturbance “

00000003

Kindly read the previous post. This is just an update.

 

So, the disturbance occurred  early Tuesday morning.  I went out  at 12:30 PM , same day, for my annual dental appointment .  While waiting for the dentist to see me, I got a call from my cousin who said that guy was back, and he was  with another guy. I got called by the dentist at that moment so I  told her not to confront them  and to just  call the cops. ( Dental  work took longer than expected)  My mother was with me, but left to do some shopping at nearby grocery and  didn’t know about the call. Anyways, I called back my cousin   on our drive home, ( about 3 :30 PM ) and we were informed she did call  the cops………. and 4 police cars arrived , with 4 cops. Why so many ? Well, there were 2 hostile  men, and the situation was , 2 cops per person, just in case.  o.O”  (This is America, folks.)  She also told me they were gone,  so it was safe to come home.

 

Then, guess what happened  when we arrived.

 

My ex and a companion  parked their car somewhere where they could see our arrival. We were surprised to see them drive over the pavement , and over a portion of our driveway, DIAGONALLY !  That is how cops   park their cars  when  they want  to block a road. Right ?   Mom calmly told  them to get off our property. How about me ? Well,  I had a mental block.  Then Mom called my cousin and told her to bring Taylor out and hand her over to this guy. It was my cousin’s boyfriend who came out with the dog, and told him , ”  you have the dog, now get off the property.” The 2 guys looked like they were going to punch him. (  They had a heated argument  earlier before the cops came. ) We were surprised to see our 2 neighbors  rushed over to help us.  ( I didn’t even notice they were there ) Their conversation was loud and heated. When the neighbors threatened to call the cops , they left hurriedly , with our dog, who was then barking crazily.

 

Guys, my story  is  condensed and  sanitized.

 

It’s weird that one of the things I do remember  is the image  of 3 brown women ( Mom, cousin and  I ) huddling together and 5 adult  white men having a loud , heated conversation.

 

Also, I’d like to thank those who showed their concern and suggestions in their comments . Although I wasn’t able to respond , I’d like you to know they’re very much appreciated.

 

One good news.  I’m getting a new dog  from the animal shelter and he already has a name…. Holden.

 

This is all for now. Thank you for reading and peace.

HOME DISTURBANCE ! !

00000003

 

I posted about this HERE.

 

It happened again last night…. actually this morning around 12 AM to 2 AM.

 

To summarize what happened in July, 2017….. I broke up  with my boyfriend, then he demanded that I return ” his ” dog , or else, he’d sue me…..and he came over at 3 AM but he didn’t create a disturbance when we didn’t open the door.

 

But today, it was different.  So, okay, he said he wouldn’t get ” his ” dog back anymore. But then, 4 months ago, he started texting and calling me about us getting back together….. I’ve been saying NO very politely  but he didn’t stop…………… but last night on my  drive home, he called again. I was driving , and very tired,  darn it,  so I yelled on the phone   STOP CALLING ME AND GO AWAY ! !  I mean,  his texts and calls have already become a form of stalking and harassment !  When I got home, ( about 10 PM ) he texted  and threatened he’d come over to get ” his ” dog back . So, we turned off all the lights , then , around 12 , the doorbell started ringing  without let-up, and at the same time, texting  me ( I received 25 texts ) , and said he had called the police. ( I actually got a voicemail from the police ) . We also heard him  say , in a rather loud voice , ” I know you’re in there, Ren. Don’t make it hard on you and your family.  I JUST WANT MY DOG BACK ! ”

 

Meanwhile, we forgot  my cousin would come home at 1 AM ( from her part time job delivering Domino’s Pizza,  ^__^ ” ) . Then we heard her enter the house, heard voices,   and we were like, OMG, did she let him in ???? She was like, ” are you kidding ? ”   She then called her BF, and on the phone, she said , ” There’s a 6 ft. tall angry dude at our doorstep,  can you come over, please and   don’t come in, just park the car outside and stay in the car, call me,  and let us know what he’s doing. ”  Believe it or not, it was already 2: 15 AM when he finally left. The BF came , parked, and kept the headlights on…… just to let the ex know there’s a witness, just in case.

 

Where was Dad while this was happening ?  Dad is a heavy sleeper… so yeah, he was happily snoring in La la land, thank goodness.   Otherwise, there’d be a huge commotion between him and this guy.  Yikes.

 

Guys, a question…… should I be worried ?  I don’t think he owns a gun.

 

So, this is it…. Thanks for reading and peace !  (~.~)

My Sunday ramblings

00000003

 

Nothing to see here, folks. Move along…….. * just kidding *

 

To be honest,  today, I’m just winging it.  Let’s  see where this post goes.

 

I’ve been reading blogs from The Reader , and that means I cannot read those that get posted from 11 PM to 6 AM, (  sleeping time ) and from 12 PM to 9: 30 PM ( I’m at work ) . Also, I’ve been busy   doing  some yard work in the morning, and that means, I  don’t get to read any blog , at all.   Yardwork and gardening  are no laughing matter in my book. Remember these photos  that I posted 2 years ago ?

The amount of yardwork  isn’t as bad  this year  .  Our lawn was rehabilitated after California’s 4 year drought ( back then,  our water use was monitored …. our front yard lawn was brown but not dead, but at the backyard, the lawn was completely dry, except the weeds that grew vigorously with little rain, completely overpowering the lawn ) , but there are still a staggering  amount of weeds to manually pluck out this spring.  Anyway, the photos above speak for itself.  I’m not exaggerating this time, folks…….. as I wont to do.  Ha ha ! * sweats *

 

We just gave a goodbye pot luck party for a co-worker  who’s moving  to another state.  I brought  baked macaroni. My co-workers were a bit disappointed that it wasn’t an ” ethnic”  food.  I told them it was a Filipino style baked macaroni, and they were like, ” Yay, Filipino style ! ”  o_O   They loved my macaroni dish . It was cleaned out in one go, and those that came in late didn’t get to taste it.  Some of them asked for the recipe.  I usually  balk at giving  away  ” original ” recipes ( my mother’s ) .  My mother had a successful catering business in the Philippines, and you know, one should not ask  the caterer for the recipe of the dish that one likes, for obvious reasons.  In fact, a former co-worker ordered  from me  4 kinds of food for her Christmas party (  she’s Muslim, by the way ) …….. baked macaroni, spring rolls, potato salad  ( she got to taste test my salad, and loved it ) and turrones  (  wrapped fried banana with jackfruit ). Just a favor given, guys, ( with mini monetary compensation for my efforts, a few dollars and some change ). This isn’t a business.

 

Back to my co-workers……………… I do plan to give them the recipe, if they ask for it again. It seems they have forgotten about it, he he.  Anyways, how is my recipe different from  other baked macaronis ?  Well, I add fish sauce ( Filipinos call patis )  and soy  sauce,. Fish sauce is a South East Asian favorite condiment.  It’s a basic ingredient in their dishes , particularly Thai , Indonesian, Malaysian and Filipino  dishes.  Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think the Chinese, Japanese, and Koreans use fish sauce in their dishes.  It’s really a Southeast Asian thing.

 

I’d like to end my post at this point ( it’s almost 500 words now ),  But I feel I need to say something. Political, I’m afraid.   ( ~ .~ )  I try not to pay attention to news  re  Trump and Liars , Inc. It was hard at first, but I’m getting better  at it.  Nowadays,  I  just wait for Trump and Liars, Inc. to implode, then start from scratch when this nightmare is over.  I call this a Susan Sarandon syndrome.  ( He”s not going to be impeached, but who knows . The alternative is worse, in my opinion. VP Pence ?  He talks to God, and more importantly, God talks to him. But I don’t know  what kind of God he talks to .. not a compassionate and moral  God, that’s for sure…….. maybe a gun- toting God who kicks beggars off the streets, and , definitely not Jesus ) I’m sorry for my harsh words.

 

This is all for now.  Thanks for reading, and Peace ! !  \(^w^)/
