I don't know if I would say that my life has calmed down or become more chaotic.

We finally moved from the suite of hell. We found a 3 bedroom just right down the road from where I was living before. It was damaged and so it took about a week to repair walls and floors and clean up mountainous piles of rat shit. We still have a little wall paper to hang but otherwise we're pretty well set up.

I was chomping at the bit to get back to work and so of course the phone company had issues setting up my lines. With no internet I was forced to think. I got a magazine from www.thewc.com and an article in it gave me the idea to organize a job fair for moms to work at home. So I bounced it off of my fabulous fellow mods at Clubmom and decided to give it a shot. I have been busily contacting Avon ladies, tupperware ladies, Arbonne, Home interior, and whatever else I can think of. It's coming together nicely. I have garnered a really fabulous venue and spots are filling up quick. I'm hoping that moms in my area will be able to find a way to work at home with their children.

I'm really warming up to my new column. Its getting fun. My favorite so far will be the one that will run this week. It's about books and how to find them cheap or free.
It's in the daily living section of www.thesaturdayindependent.com
I'm still doing crime and features so things are going well there, so far. I have to do a story this week on the National Walking Horse Celebration getting cancelled.

I did another round of content writing. 25 articles on educational articles. If you want to call t hem that. Stuff like - Is Greek Life Right For You? and How Not To Get Caught Up In The Drinking Lifestyle and of course How To Decorate A Dorm Room. I had to do them in three days and so I was really humping.

I'm also in the process of writing a Freelance Writing Ebook for Bizymoms. For which I am Host of the Month! Thank you, autographs after the show.

Much has happened on the Women of Death Row front. So much that I will wait until tomorrow to explain it all, it's a doosy so tune in.


I want to end this post by telling everyone how proud I am of my friend Nikki. She is a aspiring writer who is definitely on her way.She got her first paying assignment this week. Way to go Nikki!

Brenda Andrew Execution date

Brenda Andrew is the only woman on Oklahoma death row. She is there for the murder of her husband by her and her boyfriend James Pavatt.

     Brenda does not answer letters. It seems she may still have a bit of that pretentious attitude left over from her days as a respected deacons wife. Those days are over, hun.

     There is no scheduled execution date for Brenda yet. Oklahoma lists its dates of execution for the prison she is in here.

     Every time I read about this case I am utterly amazed at how stupid these two people were. She may as well have advertised their guilt on a billboard in front of the house. Both Andrew's and Pavatt's appeal were systematically denied without comment in 2008.

The little Scorned episode "The Sunday School Killers" at the top of this post is about Brenda and James and its only $1.99 so its worth the money.

Kelly "Turtle" Tibbs and her Chick Posse

Anybody ever hear about Kelly Tibbs? I read about her case years ago and was recently contacted by a friend of hers. I got to thinking about her again. I cant really believe she didnt get the death penalty.

She was a lesbian ring leader in her little town. She and her teenage friends were a little crew of lesbians that hung together and lived together. None had a steady home, all were from broken families somehow torn by substance problems or abuse or just plain neglect.

Kelly was the leader. Her nickname "Turtle" was the name she went by exclusively and all her followers tatooed a tiny turtle on their hands. This group was so odd. They were PeterPans lost boys and Turtle was peter pan. They traveled in packs and found food and lodging when they could. Everything was a game and they frolicked around everywhere they went.

Eventually a new girl came into the mix and began a half-assed relationship with one of the other girls. Emotions flew and she got murdered. Beat to death. …

Texas May Have an Innocent Woman on Death Row

Kimberly Cargill is on death row for the killing of her mentally retarded babysitter, Cherry Walker. Ms. Walker was found burned on the side of a rural road in Texas. Doctors had diagnosed her as mentally challenged in 1995, saying she had the living skills of a 9 year old.

Witnesses, some her own family, testified that Cargill was abusive and violent toward them and to Cherry Walker. Cargill was arrested in 2010 on child abuse charges and a custody trial was pending in which Cherry Walker was slated to testify. The state alleged that Kimberly killed Cherry to keep her from testifying.

Kimberly has always said that she did not kill Cherry but that she suffered from a seizure as she was riding in the car with Kimberly. She had been prone to seizures and Kimberly panicked. She tried to revive her, but could not. When she realized Cherry was dead, she set her on fire in an attempt to rid any DNA from her body. She was certain she would be charged with her death.

She was convicted. She wa…
