okay, let’s just skip spring and go straight to summer…
In other news, word has it that cicadas are coming around this summer. They say they’re confused or something b/c of the drastic weather changes and what not. not cool. I planned my getaway for 17 yrs from the last time they were around. not cool.
We had to say good bye to Marley He had to go live with his grandmother. He seemed to be having an issue with peeing and pooping in the basement.I think he had an issue with the basement being Diesel’s territory. At first it wasn’t all that bad, but it got worse and worse so he had to go.
I’m honestly not okay with it, but I know it’s not my call to make since I don’t own the house or anything. I knew when he came it was a trial period where they were going to test his relationship with Diesel and he seemed to be fine!… Except that he’d eat all of Diesel’s food when he wasn’t looking… that’s Diesel’s fault for being so picky though. Spoiled dog won’t eat his dinner unless you mix some kind of lunch meat in with it. But he’s been here for months and was like my own dog! He’d cuddle with me after work until his owner went to bed. I still don’t understand why the basement door couldn’t just be kept shut but again, not like I own the place.
I struggled for the first few days… then I went out and found a replacement. Meet Betta Marley Jr. and his African Dwarf friends Ziggy and Damion. Actually, that’s just Ziggy cuz Damians a bit more shy, but he’s coming around. They’re obviously harder to cuddle with, but the aquarium set up and betta/ dwarf frog research has done a good job of getting my mind off of Marley. The African Dwarf Frogs are actually kind of a pain to feed. At first, I tried to feed them with chopsticks, but I couldn’t find long enough chopsticks here, and my hand would eventually hurt from holding their food over their head. And possible asian fail, but it was really difficult to grasp individual blood worms. BF ordered these long plant tweezers which are much easier to use. Feeding time is a breeze. I was worried for a bit that they wouldn’t get along, but they usually keep to themselves. Sometimes ziggy and damian get a little crazy with their swimming and get in marley jr’s space and he’ll start flaring, but overall they seem to get along. They’re such silly little critters. Sometimes they’ll fall over and play dead (Marley couldn’t even do that!) and then sometimes they’ll swim like crazy maniacs all over the place with no real objective (very Marley like).
They’ve been a good distraction, but I still miss Marley and am googling samoyed puppies on a daily basis. Luckily, Marley is coming home this weekend to visit while is grandmother is out of town. YAY! CUDDLE TIME!
So my car looks gross after spitting rain and wet snow… But I can’t bring myself to take it to a car wash or anything because it’s never made sense to me… It’s gonna rain on Friday… so why bother? There’s always some kind of rain in the forecast so it’s really hard for me to spend that $10 on getting my car washed just to have it squeaky clean for a few days before it rains. The inside of my car however… is a completely different story >_< I used to have a problem with a small messy bedroom… you can’t imagine what the inside of my car looks like.
Mechanic roomie told me that it’s important to get a car wash at least once after winter to make sure you get all the salt off the bottom of your car to prevent rusting. Ya learn somethin new everyday.
Stupid. It didn’t bother me so much yesterday b.c I got to sleep in, but it definitely hit me this morning trying to get up for work. grr. BUT I did appreciate driving home in some light for a change. I’m not a fan of driving at night. I don’t think I have very good night vision and it makes me all sorts of paranoid.
Is there such a site? I’m too scared to find out, but I should submit to it if there is. Today she was typing up a write up and turned around and asked me “Can you google _____ to find out how it’s spelled?” WHAT?!… uhhhhhh okay, I get that I’m faster at typing and finding things, but the chrome button is RIGHT there! You’re really incapable of opening up a browser as you’re typing in another window?! -_- I love my job but sometimes I feel like I’m babysitting the computer illiterate.
YAY! I got a snow day!!!! Nothing better than sitting at home, under the covers, doing absolutely nothing! woohoo!… I should finish my taxes though. At least I can do it next to a nice warm fire. I ran out and picked up a bunch of firewood last night cuz I was afraid of the power going out. So far, so good, but I hear the winds are supposed to pick up in a few hours, so we’ll see!
YAY! SNOW DAY!! Better late than never!
Guess what I did all day yesterday? Laid in bed. ALL DAY. well I folded a little bit of laundry and loaded the dishwasher, but other than that, I stayed under my covers all day and it felt AWESOME. My boss has been out of town on vacation, and of course, the second she leaves, everything falls to shit. Yesterday was my first breath of fresh air… even though I stayed in bed all day, I felt like I could actually breathe again! I can’t wait for my next lazy day!!!
Went to my parents doctor today to treat a uti. They switched doctors, but it’s still an old asian man, leaving me uneasy and what not. I had to ask the nurse if she needed my urine sample! She then asked me why? and I had to explain to her my situation. You think they would’ve made note of it on my chart when I called in to make the appointment. Ugh, as if I wasn’t about to pee myself already! So the doctor didn’t bother to test my urine at all, and patted my stomach and my back, asked me if i was allergic to anything, then handed me to prescription. He said he was going to test my urine later. WHAT?… thanks. Shoulda just handed me the prescription off the bat. Could’ve saved me tons of time.
As much as I want to break off and start getting my own insurance, it’s so much cheaper to stay under my parents right now. And why not stay under quality insurance while I still can?? Sure, I gotta put up with stupid old grandpas as doctors, but I dont know that I could afford to live after buying health insurance through my company >_< oy
I hate this lack of snow. What happened to the huge amount of snow we were supposed to receive this year due to the lack of snow last year?? What?! If you’re going to snow, stop giving me this less than an inch crap and gimme something BIG!!… although… this really would come back and bite me in the butt since I now have a driveway to shovel…. At least I get to park in the garage ^.^
I’ve been having trouble getting up lately. I don’t know if it’s because it’s so cold out or what. I hit my snooze button at least 5 times in the morning and wait till I should be leaving for work to get up and get ready. Then I’m speeding down the road and running late for work. I have no clue what my problem is. Even if I do manage to get up early, I still can’t manage to get out the door in time. I used to be 10 minutes early for work, not 10 minutes late. Luckily my boss hasn’t said anything to me… but this has gotta stop! I feel like I’m in high school all over again!!
