Sad Day

Our little baby kitty, Harvey, passed away last night. She was just too sick. This was the last picture I took of her. It makes me want to cry writing this, but I'm just out of tears.

We loved you baby girl, for the short time you were with us.

No good deed goes unpunished...

This is Harvey. As in Harvey Two Face. Get it. She is our little bundle of agony.

Anyways, this adorable little kitten showed up on our property about a week ago, and we took her in because she was so little and helpless. After a couple of days she refused to eat or drink, so I took her to the vet. She is still there. Ever since last Thursday me and Dustin have been on a roller coaster of emotion, that has ranged from elation to despair, on a semidaily basis. It has also taken a toll on our pocket book. Kitty ICU isn't cheap. And now she needs a freakin' blood transfusion, that may not even snatch her back from the cold grip of death.

I need some answers; I need to know what to do. This waiting game is killing us, and we are both exhausted. Doing the right thing sucks.

New Hair

I dyed my hair black black last night. Maybe a little darker than I had intended, but I prefer to over do it than under do it.

I have five more days of summer school left, which is pretty cool. I'm in life span nutrition, but it seems more like a class in breastfeeding. Which, I think breastfeeding is pretty important, but we spent nearly a week on the topic, in a four week class. I should get like a certificate on the subject or something. It was pretty fascinating, though. Apparently, when a baby is fresh (just born), you can set the baby on the mommy's chest, and it will climb to the breast and start nursing. Weird, but cool.

If you are a grown up, and want to see this, here is a video from Unicef (it's a bit graphic):

Weird huh. We're like little monkeys.

Making Progress

I'm on a quest, a quest to get my shit together.

This weekend I made some major headway. Unpacking is a bitch.

Here is some excellent advice from cute with chris:

I broke my ass...

I fell down the stairs, I swear... hehe.

No, I really did fall down the stairs, slid actually, on the slimey crap that had accumulated for years on them, until I fucking powerwashed it off, to avoid it happening again. I fell right onto my ass, in front of Nancy, and now my ass is broken. Maybe not broken broken, but it feels fucking broken. It was sort of funny, mostly painful. And there is a very visible bruise on my arm.


Ouch, people are going to think I'm battered. I look gross today too, because I wore my pajama's to school. It's raining, and I didn't feel like getting all gussied up.

Well, I'm off to class,

Oh my goodness...

Busy busy busy.

Fourth of July was a blast. Lots of people at my house and the lake kept me very busy.

Moved into my house on Thursday, finally. I love it. We still have our apartment for the rest of the month, which is where I am writing this, since we don't have internet at our house yet. I also lost my keys, and am hoping that they are at the lake, but am not sure. This means that I have to drive Dusin into town every morning for work, which is a bummer. We also lost a box of blue-ray dvd's, including our Planet Earth dvd's, which makes me sad. I hope they are at the storage, because if they are not, they are gone forever, and i will cry.

Dustin's mom is coming up tonight to help us work on the other trailer, which is good and bad. I still haven't finished unpacking, but we really need to work on it.

Ok, that's all I feel like writing.

Can I just say...

... that I am the fucking moving Queen, with a capital Q! I have, (nearly) single-handedly moved ~ 80% of mine and Dustin's belongings, including furniture, by myself, in 80-90 degree heat.

I am sweating bullets right now.
