I Spy…

IMG_20150816_184422_hdr So I did end up grabbing one of those window perch seats and I swear it’s the flimsiest piece of crap ever but for the time being it can hold the whole 3.5 lbs of Snowflake right now. It literally is held onto the window sill with just a strip of velco. There are some legs that lean on the wall but I swear it will keel over one day. For now she enjoys her sights of the neighborhood and the things that go on around the place. There is even a tree in front of the window so she can birdy watch. The padding is pretty thick though which I was surprised about.

IMG_20150814_204624 Poor little Snowflake got a case of ringworm this week from stress. The HVAC dude had to come by twice because my A/C went out yet again without fail. It’s a brand new unit people. This shouldn’t keep happening but it does because the owner doesn’t fix the rest of the pieces parts that go with it. Well, more got replaced this time because the copper pipes started leaking through the upstairs bathroom ceiling and this is after it stopped working from the lines being clogged.

Anywhoo, Snowflake has a spot on her paw and a little bit on her tummy. She also has kitty acne under her chin because she isn’t doing a good job of cleaning that. She has earned herself some oral fungal medicine twice a day as well as a septic clean of her chin, paw, and tummy. She was very good at the vets though and they couldn’t believe how calm she was. Due to her fungal infection I have to postpone her surgery for spaying because we don’t want this to spread or her get anymore stressed and possibly break out more. You wouldn’t know she was stressed at this point because she is crawling all over the place as she is to be secluded for a week so the dog doesn’t catch the ringworm. I don’t think it will last because she doesn’t like being by herself. Just gonna have to make sure she stays away from the dog and vice versa.

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

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

12/26/2014 @ 1:36 PM | 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.

Monday Quiz About Me #83

Acting Balanced

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.
