Yeah, it’s been a while. I’m a horrible blogger! I don’t feel like I have anything interesting to say that anyone wants to read about. LOL Not that this will interest anyone either…but I’m finally gonna blog a little bit.
First things first…update on miss Beans kitty. She is doing fine right now…no new seizures or anything, so we’re just going to keep an eye on her still. I don’t know what we’ll do if the seizures are going to be a regular thing. I honestly don’t think I can deal with two epileptic animals and good Lord, there is absolutely NO way to medicate that little kitty! She doesn’t let us pick her up! So, we’ll see. I may have to look into giving her up to a rescue. I don’t want to do that, but seriously, I can’t deal with it. Judge me if you will. I already have an epileptic dog, 3 other cats, another dog and a sick husband…I cannot take one.more.thing. We’re not to that point yet anyways. She’s only had the two seizures, and I’m hoping the 2nd was stress related. So we’ll see. Plz think positively for our little girl.
Google Reader. Google reader is a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful too of pure and utter WIN! I don’t know WHY on earth I didn’t start using this sooner! I follow about 15 or so blogs. Most are scrapbooky type blogs, but some are regular ones. I just like stalking some people. LOL Anyways…before, I’d have them all listed in a sidebar on my Blogger blog and when they updated it would let me know, so I put my own blog into my “Morning Coffee” rotation (If you have Firefox and have a number of sites that you visit on a regular basis, I highly recommend this add on! It’s too cool!) But now, with the Google Reader, all of my blogs that I follow are in one spot! How convenient is that?? LOL I am slow, I know!! I never understood “feeds” and RSS and all that…but I am loving it now! I even added a couple blogs that I sometimes go to, but weren’t on my old list. Yeah…welcome to 2000, Heidi. LOL
I need to put little lines in or something when I switch subjects abruptly. lol Maybe stars or something. I dunno.
**New Meds: My husband, as you may or may not know, has a number of Autoimmune diseases including Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome and Lupus. He’s been diagnosed since 2004 when he had a DVT in one of his calves. He’s had a number of TIA’s since then and a lot of other diseases and syndromes have been added to the list. We’ve stuck together through the good and bad of it, and although it is stressful, we deal with things as they come.
Anyway, he has been asking his new hematologist if he could be put on Plaquenil for a few visits and this past week he finally wrote the hubbs a script for it! It’s really supposed to help him with some of his APS and Lupus issues, which will be great. I’m so glad he finally got it…but the side effects so far are kind of crappy…heh, pun intended. He’s back and forth from the bed to the bathroom all night long…which then wakes me up, so I’ve had a few of the worst night’s sleeps EVER lately! Everyone we know who’s on this med says it will subside after a week…I sure hope so! I can only imagine what he’s going thru, but it’s driving me CRAZY to get no sleep and then to have to work for 8 hours…then do it all over again!
Tuesday nights at 9:00pm I watch the Duggars (18 & Counting) on TLC. This family fascinates me! I have been watching them since they had just a couple special documentary type shows on whatever channel…TLC, Discovery…not sure. I watched out of curiosity at first, but now…they truly fascinate me. I can’t get enough of them! In a total good way too.
In this day and age having so many children is odd…being self sufficient with this many children? OMG I have to hand it to them! And she homeschools? Michelle Duggar is destined for saint-hood. I don’t care what anyone thinks…this family is awesome. I don’t want to live my life like that or anything, it’s fine for them, not for me. But it’s so interesting to me.
My husband makes fun of me for watching it. I don’t care. I like the Duggars. I like their family values, and I think in this day and age, families like theirs are a rarity. Maybe not in Arkansas or around where they are from…but definitely where I’m from. So many families are breaking up and everything…it’s great to showcase a family where the love is strong like that.
So there. My Duggar love has been revealed. It’s better than watching Jon and Kate…UGH! I am SO SICK of THOSE two! (that’s a whole nothing blog!)
On to Sparkly Vampires!………
So yes, I have the mad, mad love for Twilight and all things related – sparkly, vegetarian, vampires…and OMG check that smile above!!! *swooooon*
Ok, I had a point…got distracted by the Edward Cullen…
Oh yeah, so I was listening to the Sookie Stackhouse books on my iPod for a while, but I only have 1-5 and then #8 I think…and I was on #5 and didn’t want to finish #5 and then want to keep going and not be able to, so I abandoned Sookie. Sorry Sooks, but I can’t keep going, so until I get at least #6 and 7…I’m taking a Sookie break.
So I spent a couple days listening to CD’s on the iPod…Eminem, Limp Bizkit, Paramore, Pink and the Twilight Soundtrack…and then decided to listen to Breaking Dawn again. My VERY favorite of all the Twilight books aside from Twilight itself.
Ahhh Breaking Dawn…although, it’s SO annoying to have book 2 of BD read by “Jacob”, it’s still my favorite. I think I’ve almost cried at least 10 times. I hate that too! I’m sitting there listening and working and choking back tears and sobs. My face gets all red and everything. Yuck! But yet, I listen on!
I’m almost done too…and then who knows what I’ll listen to…maybe I’ll take a vampire break…GASP! Not that! LOL I do have other books I haven’t listened to on my iPod! It’s not ALL Vampires! Some is Romance…hehe and yeah, some is even NORMAL!
And I will leave you with some cuddly cuteness!
This is our Razzle kitty…he really likes it outside! If you click on the picture, you’ll go to my Flickr site and you can see a couple more photos of him just chillin’ on the table while we were sitting outside. He didn’t move for a long time…he just kept looking around. Usually he is trying to get down and explore, but this time he was pretty content just hanging out with us.
And these are our crazy pups! For some reason lately Topaz has been really playful…trying to get Onyx to play with him. She will for a little bit and then she just goes after him. She’s the boss, ya know. So this is Topaz trying to play with her. He kept getting on top of her and I snapped this while he was in the air!
Once they were done playing…he layed down in his pool. LOL silly puppa!
