Bunny Kicks

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015 | Animals, General with Comments Off on Bunny Kicks

IMG_20150727_212116 The Beagle has finally stopped slobbering all over the kitteh. Snowflake now does bunny kicks with Stormy’s tail but when she starts biting it, that’s enough for her. I’ve also found out Snowflake is a little hoarder. She will nab her toys, the dogs toys, my hair ties and tuck them nicely away underneath the recliner that I use to dump things on. I’ve also found a pile of tissues in there. She even likes to grab my dish towel when I have it in my hand and run off with it. That also goes to the hoarding pile if I don’t grab her first, else I have to fish it out. She has so much energy it’s wild. She was getting up at 4 AM but now it’s around 5 AM. In about 2 weeks I go to nights so we’ll see how they both adjust to that schedule. I haven’t been on nights in almost 20 years and honestly I can’t wait to get back to them.

I’m thinking of buying a window sill seat for her for the downstairs because it’s almost to the ground so she can see but not sure about it because then I’d have to leave the blinds up for her to see and everybody can then see in my place. I don’t really care for that.

I also had to get Snowflake weighed to see if she could get flea/heartworm treatment. I figured she was maybe a pound and a half but nope, 2 lbs 14 oz. Still feels really light lol

I’m Still Alive

Sunday, July 19th, 2015 | General with Comments Off on I’m Still Alive

It’s been a loooonnngg time over here on the blog. I finally took summer classes off this summer and have been doing a bunch of nothing. It’s weird and nice at the same time. I still took the kids to kidney camp like I’ve been doing for years and fun was had by all but the ticks this year were bad! I walked around with tweezers there were that many and everybody knew I had them which was a good thing.

I got a new job earlier this year and love it. Learning all sorts of new things and I get to go back to nights which I love.

I had to put Pepper down in January due to multiple issues which culminated into neurological issues to the point where she couldn’t keep her hind legs up anymore. She was 16 years old.

I have since acquired a new addition to the furbaby family this weekend. Meet Snowflake.

The Beagle is having a conniption fit because she wants to play with her so badly and Snowflake isn’t having any of it quite yet. I had her first tucked away in my office but she was meowing a lot so now I have the upstairs stairwell baby gated so the Beagle cant get in there until all is well them. Snowflake ventures downstairs every now and then but heads back upstairs when the Beagle spies her and starts heading towards her. She then goes and hides underneath by bed. Seems like it’s a good spot.

Long Time No Posty

Friday, December 26th, 2014 | General with Comments Off on Long Time No Posty

Yep, it’s one heck of a long time. School pretty much killed me this semester. It was a definite shock the difference between Trident and CSU. First and foremost was the lack of structure at CSU compared to Trident. I was going ballistic without it. There was luckily only one class that actually showed what was due, when it was due, and what was needed to complete it which was the English class which was only half of the semester. I had to endure the trials of none of that on 2 full semester classes and a professor on one of them who ended up stop answering my emails which pissed me off and I ended up dropping that class because there was no help. Sure I will have to take it again and with the same professor but I’m going to wait a few semesters before I attempt that again to save my sanity.

I was surprised that I get things shipped to me from each class that is required. Last semester I ended up with a new router and some other networking tools all of which I had. This semester I am taking Geology as one of my classes and received a box of rocks. Kid you not. Should be fun I think.

Anyways, hope you guys had a good Christmas a have a good New Years as well.

In case any of my follows need a laptop, I am also selling one that was used for maybe 6 months tops. This listing is here if you are in need of one. It is a Toshiba Satellite A665-S6086 for $350.00.

1. Today is MAKE A HAT day… Will you be participating?
I didn’t know it was hat day but I’m not partial to hats.

2. September is National Chicken Month… Your favorite way to make/eat chicken?
I loves me some chicken. It’s about the only meat I will eat aside from turkey bacon. Chicken is good no matter how you cook it. I’ve roasted a whole chicken in my crockpot for chicken noodle soup. I’ve baked it with Shake N’ Bake and I saute it covered with break crumbs in olive oil.

3. Have you decorated for Autumn yet?
People decorate for this? What do you decorate with and why?

4. Soup season is almost here… Do you make your own soups? Have a favorite?
Honestly I don’t like soupy soups. Know what I mean? Maybe it’s if it’s just broth? I dunno but I won’t drink it. I do like tomato soup though. I also make my own minestrone soup but it’s so full of veggies that I don’t mind and the same with the chicken soup. I also put rice in my chicken soup.

And my question for you is:
Are you already buying gifts for Christmas? Nooooootttt meee. Gift card queen right here.

Fall Shows – Who’s Ready?

Saturday, September 6th, 2014 | General with Comments Off on Fall Shows – Who’s Ready?

gothamGotham is one of the biggest I’m excited for as well as Scorpion. I’ve never been one of the diehard Batman fans but Fox might have something here with Gotham and I’m willing to give it a shot, especially since it will be on the same night as Sleepy Hollow.

The Flash is going to be good too. I’ve already seen episode one and can’t wait for the season to start. I’m still on the hunt for the first episode of Gotham but no luck quite yet.

Right now I’m deep in on The Killing seasons on Netflix. I’m in the middle of season 4 so I will finally be done with that this weekend I hope. I pretty much binge watch a lot of shows that way. I remember when my old boss told me to watch Doc Martin and I didn’t sleep for 2 days watching episode after episode on Amazon Prime lol. Now I have the latest season in my cue waiting for it to go free for Prime members so I can watch it because I’ve only caught one episode on PBS. It’s never on at the same time/day each week which baffles me.

Any shows your dying to watch this fall?

This be the school edition folks!

1. What was your favourite grade in school?
Senior year, duh. I graduated lol

2. What was your favourite subject?
Math. Love, love, love math. Put a calculus problem in front of me now and I’d look at you stupid though :/

3. What was your least favourite subject?
Science. I actually flunked Physical Science my freshman year in high school because I refused to learn the periodic chart. Hate science.

4. Who was your favourite teacher?
I’d have to say Mr. Pridgeon. I had him my freshman year for Geography and actually was suicidal and went back for World History Honors. He was the meanest and scariest if you ask the kids.

And your question is: Are you glad school is back in? Why or why not.
Yes and no for me. Yes because I’m moving along on my own schedule. No, because I’m not really motivated in a sense that I only had 3 weeks between semesters from one college to the other and never really decompressed from that insane summer session.
