A Wasted Gift

    Posted on: July 10th, 2014 by Randi 1 Comment

    I lost a really good friend today. Even though my stomach is in knots and my heart is broken, I know that this is way less painful than standing by and watching him inevitably kill himself.

    An addict will always be an addict but when you’re given a second chance with a gift that is hard to come by, you need to take that seriously. You’re essentially spitting in the face of the person and their family who has helped keep you alive. They are the reason you are here today. You should be grateful. I’m sorry that you’re not. 

    A Little Scare

    Posted on: July 2nd, 2014 by Randi No Comments

    We had a scare with Hannah yesterday and rushed her to the vet. She was vomiting and couldn’t even keep water down, had bloody diarrhea, and was very lethargic. However, it didn’t happen in that order. By the time, the bloody diarrhea started, it went quickly from, “okay, we have to watch her” to calling my mom in tears to take me to the vet.

    I didn’t know what was wrong but I immediately assumed it was the heat. I tossed her in the sink to cool her down and she started to perk up but the bloody diarrhea scared me and we drove to Carbondale. Carbondale is out of the way by like 30 minutes but they have a great animal clinic. It wouldn’t be feasible in an emergency but we weren’t at that point yet.

    They immediately thought parvo since Hannah only got her initial vaccinations and Mya was a new addition. Apparently, she had the symptoms. Thankfully, that came back negative. So, they think it was the heat, too.

    She did, however, get her booster for her distemperment and her rabies so now we can take her to the groomer to get her fur cut for the summer. They say you aren’t supposed to cut the hair of long haired dogs but my vet said it was a good idea. I did it last year so she hasn’t had to deal with hot temperatures with her long hair.

    Despite being tired all day yesterday, Hannah weaseled herself up to our pillows last night (in our air conditioned room) and slept well. This morning I leaned over to ask her how she was and she licked all over my face. She’s now up and running around with her daddy and sissy.

    She’s still getting special treatment, though, since she was given medication. She got a tasty treat (concoction) of tuna (and ALL THE MEDS!) while all the animals (even the cats) looked on.

    My mom knows how important my animals are to me. Every single one is my child. I called my mom in tears (trying to hold them back because the situation wasn’t as bad as I was making it seem) and she flew from our farther Walmart and was here in less than 6 minutes. Thank god for my mother because I was losing it.

    Six Years

    Posted on: October 15th, 2013 by Randi 1 Comment

    Technically, our anniversary is at 3am on October 16th. Both he and I decided that since we hadn’t gone to bed yet, it was still the previous day.

    Regardless, exactly 6 years ago, I was a happy 16 year old hanging out with a guy I had been crushing on for months. Never did I imagine we’d be here now.

    He may get on my nerves and he may act like a child sometimes but I cant imagine spending my life with anyone else. He’s my best friend and my soul mate. There is no one better for me. I love him with all that I have.

    Our Nightly Routine

    Posted on: August 3rd, 2013 by Randi 1 Comment

    Apparently, Reese and I have a nightly routine. Every night I go up the bathroom. She follows me, so I just let her in. I didn’t think much of it. She sits in the tub, myself on the toilet since it’s too late to go outside and I have a cigarette. I turn on the bathtub faucet so that she can drink from it because she attempts to anyway. She gets sick of it and I turn it off. Then she rolls around in the tub while I rub her belly. Our bathroom is very small.

    Earlier, she wasn’t around when I went to the bathroom. At least I thought she wasn’t. It wasn’t bed time so I didn’t think much of it. Then I hear her meow. Then she sticks her paw under the door. Then she attempts to get her face under the door. All the while, she is meowing at me loudly. As soon as I was done, I opened the door and she came running in and jumped into the tub while meowing at me. So, I turned on the faucet and waited while she drank. Because I wasn’t sitting she was very uneasy and got bored very quickly.

    So, I made sure to end the night with our bathroom routine. She is currently sitting on the floor staring at me.

    Clearly, this is very weird. However, you don’t know Reese very well. She is such a skittish cat that she has to be in the right mood, place, time of day, etc in order for you to pet her. I love her very much and I accept the way she is. I wish she could be more loving and jump into my lap like Phantom does but she is who she is. So, instead, I do what I have to to spend time with her. Even if that means sitting in the bathroom with her for an extra 10 minutes to give her all the love that she wants.

    I’m a crazy cat lady..

    Lack of Resources

    Posted on: May 19th, 2013 by Randi No Comments

    Andrew hasn’t touched his arcade cabinet yet. Mainly because he doesn’t have the money to buy the type of hardware, like fasteners at reidsupply.com, to start it. Hopefully, soon he’ll find enough time and money to put into it. I don’t really mind that it’s taking up room in the closet. I know he WANTS to work on it but the lack of funds is preventing him.

    He has plenty of plans for it. He’d like me to make him a collage of video game characters to order a vinyl to cover the sides and to possibly decorate the marquee at the top. Since he doesn’t have a name for it, I haven’t started on any of it. However, he ordered t-molding samples to line the sides of it. He’s very hopeful but not having the money to do it, puts him in a mood. So, he doesn’t look at it a lot any more.

    Maybe one day, he’ll have the resources for it but in the meantime, I have no issues with it being stored in the closet, even though it’s blocking my clothes.
