What a week

After a minor scare earlier this week where Kramer was puking I am happy to say I have my pain in the butt cat back. I had to call the vet because of him tossing his cookies so the vet said pick up his food, take him off the antibiotics and see what happens, so I did as he said. Kramer begged and begged for his wet food back, being a royal pest about it. He has been acting like himself since I took him off the meds so no more of those for him. At this moment he is running like crazy through the apartment, annoying me but I'm happy to have him annoy me again.

In other news, I made mom her Mother's day gift but seeing as how mom reads my blog, I will have to wait to post pictures of it till after I give it to her. I know she will like it though. I actually made it while she was out of state for 2 weeks. Look for the post on Mother's Day to see what she got from me.

Richard and I have to go out to the Valley on Sunday to help his dad finish up his shed before we all head down to California to celebrate Richards grandparents 50th wedding anniversary. It shouldn't take to long to finish the shed, cause like all it needs is a door if I remember correctly. Plus I get to see how Charlie is healing up and play with him and Munchkin.

Hopefully by the end of May I will be able to share my big news that I have been hinting at all year. It's finally getting close to the big reveal. I'm excited about it, so yeah that's coming up.

Other than that I gotta practice my drawing skills and ooo, maybe get some clay in certain colors to see if I can make what I'm drawing out of clay as well. We will have to wait and see, I might not be able to draw this that well lol.

Zombie Jesus and Kramer

Kramer is on antibiotics to see if they help him get better, if I don't see a change in him in a week it's back to the vet for blood work. I'm hoping that we don't have to do that and that the meds work for him. So twice a day for a week I have to fight with him to squirt liquid medicine into his mouth. Oh joy! (not). The only good thing about this is that I know where to put my fingers to make him open his mouth and if he decides to try to bite me he wont be able too cause where my fingers are he has no teeth.

Richard got the tooth that was bugging him pulled on Thursday, so he is a lot happier now, and just like me when I got teeth pulled was back to eating normal food the next day. He hasn't had any problems with it besides it being a little sore.

Richard and I are going up to mom's house for Easter dinner, we are having some kind of roast or something. Mom got us a little bit of Easter candy as well, mmm mmm good. I love me some Easter candy. I remember bits and pieces of Easter's past and getting a basket full of candy and toys from E. Bunny. Then either mom or dad would hide the plastic Easter eggs around the house for my brother and I to find. I also Remember that ever Easter mom would get this huge chocolate Easter Egg, well huge in the eyes of a little kid, but still it was a pretty good sized chocolate egg. I remember this one Easter I got a Reba McEntire tape in my Easter basket and it was the best gift I could have gotten. I still have that tape to this day too.

I will end this blog with what my brother says on this day. Happy Zombie Jesus Day!

Snot Rocket of EWWW

Kramer has been sneezing a lot the last week or so, but today just took the cake and made me call to set up a vet appointment on Saturday. I was in the bathroom and Kramer came in and sneezed and when he sneezed he shot snot onto the closet door. I was grossed out by it and decided that if he is shooting snot rockets that he needs to go in so we can see what is up with him. He prob just has a kitty cold and a few days of meds will cure him. I just hope that I can handle giving him his meds, he isn't the best patient out there, he squirms and tries to get away from you. I usually end up needing Richard to hold Kramer so I can give him his meds.

The Wait & See Game

Richard called me from work today to inform me that he gets to work 8 hours a day till Home Depot hires 2 more people to fill the open spots for BIA's (Bay integrity associates). This is a good thing cause it means more money for us, and a bad thing cause he has to do the work of 3 people and will prob be tired when he comes home from work. I have no clue how long this will last, so it's kind of a wait and see thing.

It seems the weather has finally calmed down and is doing more spring weather then winter weather, its been sunny here pretty much all week, I hope this means we will have a nice summer this year. Guess that's another wait and see thing as well.

Other than that, I have finished up two books this week and am almost done with a third. Depending on where I am in my books when our trip comes up depends on what book I will take with me, I have 3 books coming out the beginning of May so I might just take one of those with me. I know it won't be the James Patterson book cause I will get that one read in a matter of days if not hours. It will prob end up being the new Kane Chronicles book, or it might just be a Vlad book. Just gotta, you guessed it wait and see to see what I wanna take.

My big news, is coming closer and closer to getting revealed on here, Hopefully by June I will be able to share with you, but we will just have to wait and see on that too.

April Showers, bring May flowers

Mom made it back from her trip safe and sound last night, she had a great time and like all people when they come back from vacation was happy to be sleeping in her own bed at last. I'm glad she is home, and glad that she had a fun time while in Seattle.

While mom was on vacation I managed to get a cold, I got it from Paul a family friend, who was nice enough to share his cold not only with me but also mom, Josh and Richard. Sadly I am the only one who can't shake the dang thing. I have a doctors appointment tomorrow to get some meds cause once again like usual it went to my ears and my ears are plugged up. I want to be able to hear when we go to California next month.

We went out to Richards parent's house out in the valley today to visit for a few hours, we ended up watching of all things golf. I have never been so bored in my life. Thankfully I had the dogs to play with. Munchkin is so cute and full of energy, we all believe she has springs in her back legs cause that little dog can jump! Charlie wasn't feeling to good, he got into a dog fight earlier this week to protect Munchy, the neighbors dogs came over to go after her and Charlie got in the way to protect her. He doesn't have any puncture wounds but poor boy has this huge swollen spot on his neck, he is on pain killers and antibiotics, just looking at it made my neck hurt and I feel so bad for him but I'm glad that he put himself in the way and that he also didn't get hurt any worse than what he is.

We are having "typical" Alaskan weather for spring, it keeps snowing on and off and melting and getting up to like 50 degrees during the day, so messed up. It was actually hailing earlier today. Never fails every April for the last few years it snows a couple times the first half of it then finally goes away and summer shows up. I hope it shows up soon because the city is ugly right now because of dirty snow. I know we have all heard the saying April showers bring May flowers but I don't think it was referring to snow showers. :-)

Yay a small Vacation in May

Some exciting news, earlier today I bought tickets for Richard and I to fly down to California for a week next month. We are going down to go to a party for his grandparents 50th wedding anniversary. I'm stoked about this because we thought we weren't going to be able to go because of him losing his job last year, but with our tax return and a little bit of help from his parents we get to go, and a little help from mom too.

Now I just have to figure out, what clothes to bring down with me, what to wear for the party and what the heck I'm going to do with my hair. Since it's may I'm assuming its going to be a tad on the warm side while there, I might just cut some of my hair off so I don't have so much of it when we go down. I also have to find out if a friend of ours will cat sit for us while we are gone, cause if he can that would be great, if not then mom said she would do it.

We are also going to try to get back down to California for his grandparents Christmas party, but that is up in the air at this moment, that all depends on The PFD's and if he can get the time off to go.

I'm just thrilled to be traveling again, I loved going down there in 2009 and to be going back again so soon is sweet.
