RIP Bamboo [Jul. 30th, 2009|10:58 am]
Nothing but the best...
[Current Mood |disappointeddisappointed]



I took home a Neonate foster puppy about 3 weeks ago.  His name became Bamboo shortly after, as he looked like a little Panda Bear.  Poor bugger had a hard life - mom died giving birth to him, so I was his "mom".  Bottle fed him, tube fed him when we was so young and tired that he didn't have coordination, helped him learn how to walk.  You name it, I did it.

He died this morning at 3 weeks old.  Poor baby had a blood clot after his traumatic birth that we didn't know about.  He died in my arms on the way to work.   Even though he only lived 3 weeks he was loved by so many people!

You will be missed, little man!

I made it official - I adopted my Tripod cat.  his new name is "Frank ' N Beans" and I am going to call him Beans for short!  I love him so much!  He is fitting in well with the other animals - it didn't take long for him to work out his recent amputation!  He loves to head-butt the dogs and is snoozing on my desk as I type this.  My old lady cat (Princess Lexington) is mostly tolerating him - a HUGE feat for her.

I knew I should have stopped fostering...lol.  Foster failure number 3 in last year and a half!!!

Welcome to the zoo family, good man!

Happy *almost* New Year! [Dec. 31st, 2008|04:56 pm]

MAN has this past week been long!  After being without power for 3 days - YES....3 days - we are finally back to normal, again.  It is hard to do anything for Christmas past 3:30, since it gets dark here by then.  We BBQ'd our dinner for Christmas - not the traditional homemade Raviolli's.  I was quite disappointed with that fact, but of course, all of the family understood.  It got to the point that we had to move our Freezer and Fridge food to OUTSIDE.  No joke.  Milk was on the back porch, covered in snow.  It stayed cold, indeed.

My mom is within walking distance, as is my brother - so we had a nice Christmas just he 4 of us.  It was lovely.  I am officially an adult  - I was OVERLY excited about my carpet shampooer that I got as a gift from my mom.  I mean - how freaking practical!  I can at least make our new house look even better!!!!

Anyways, I am off to shower and get ready for a New Year's Party.  I told Troy I wouldn't kiss him until midnight -at all today.  He called me a liar- so far, so good!  =)

Happy New Year, everyone!  Be safe tonight!

It's Winter here, for sure! [Dec. 18th, 2008|02:51 pm]

So, to me, this weather is like home. But, everyone here PANICS about the snow. I cannot believe that for less than an inch of snow and a bit of ice, all of the schools in this area canceled! CANCELED. Dumb. The biggest thing that I have noticed this cold winter, is that it is very wet snow - and they don't have snow plows here. Nobody shovels their driveway, either! A whole new outlook to Winter, I suppose.

Alas, here are some pictures of the snow - it sure is pretty!

Winter Wonderland!Collapse )

I have a new foster addition to the perfect little family of mine.  He is still not named....

Red Tabby - Domestic Long Hair.  Had his front right leg amputated due to severe abuse and neglect.

I will post a picture later....but I need help with a name.

Is "Franken-Cat" to mean?!

After my meeting with the Athletic Director - I find out that my program needs to make $2500 by Jan 1st!  SHIT!  We are such a small non-profit that we are having a hard time keeping our heads above water.

We have some fundraising in the works, but we need something fast and easy.

Anyone know of ideas?!?!?!

Obama - or - Bust [Nov. 4th, 2008|11:56 pm]

Let me be 100% honest.  I haven't logged onto Livejournal since I have been married.  To say I didn't miss it would be a lie.  I feel like a part of me is wrapped up in this on-line life.  It feels almost too real...yet at the same time....really fake.

Survived Halloween.  Had a TON of Trick-Or-Treaters.  Troy and I were dressed up and had a wonderful time spending time together.  His schedule keeps him so busy.  I miss my husband!  To top off hsi working, he has also decided to take a few "refresher" courses.

Finished another season of dance.  Although we weren't as successful as this past year...I cannot complain.  We made it into the final round in our Circuit.  That means that we will be attending State and Regionals this coming winter!  Who knows where we will end up.


And.  OBAMA.  I am fucking STOKED.  Let me tell you that I am not able to vote yet, here.  But I have followed US politics for quite some time.  I am so proud to be able to be a part of history.  This is something that nobody ever really expected to happen - and here we are.  Living it.

I have decided that this is the year that I will get my citizenship.  That's my goal.
