Organized Chaos August 5, 2009

Have you ever felt like your slowly losing your sanity? Like everyone is out to destroy your day? Well, it’s somewhat like that for me. Except destroying my day, the pets are out to drive me crazy.

Because it’s been too hot to train him, Zeus has had super energy and no where for it to go. So he barks at us and barks at the kitties. When we try to put the muzzle on him, he goes berserk. So whenever I feel like I’m not going to rip my heart out, I start training him again today. Last night, I finally taught him patience for food. I’ll work on it again today so he does it without being asked. He can still shake hands, but of course, he still needs reminding. Right now, he’s asleep, which I am so thankful for that. Maybe tonight, when it finally gets below 100*, we can take him outside and let him run all of his energy out. Yea, I like that idea- a lot.

Smokie gave birth to a small white kitten around 6:30 AM on July 30th, while we were waiting for some severe storms to pass through. She usually needs help but as I was watching TV, I peered into her nesting box to see if she needed help. Much to my surprise, she didn’t need help and I saw this adorable kitten! I picked it up to see how healthy it was- does it have a set of pipes! It started squealing and squiggling … It’s pretty damn healthy. We thought she was going to only have 1 kitten. Then on Friday morning, as I walked into the bedroom after a shower, I saw a strange kitten. She had another one! It was white, just like the first, but a little darker. It is healthy and just as loud as the other one. Last night, I saw a kitten pant. I reached my hand into the box and realized that it was blazing hot. So I took their bed and put it under the air conditioner. I realized that even Smokie got to hot in the box and that’s why she didn’t stay in there long. She slept with her babies all night. When I went into the bedroom this morning for the iPod, I noticed she moved a kitten but found her and a baby as Smokie peeked around the corner of a box. I grabbed the kitten, explained to Smokie about the heat, put it on the kitty bed, and went on my merry way. Then, as I went to check on them, I realized she had moved BOTH kittens. I checked her regular spots but because Manders is asleep, I can’t search for them until she wakes up. With triple digit heat all week, I don’t want to risk the kittens getting sick or Smokie getting too hot. Here is a picture of one of the kittens sucking its thumb:

Then of course, Princess and Patches aren’t sure what to make of our newest family additions. Once the kittens get older, they’ll realize they have now have a new lifelong play buddy. Yep, Mom said we could keep them. Woohoo!

Still haven’t gotten the site up yet. Still having trouble figuring out what the heck to do with my DNS settings. I try to ask but their too technical and I have no clue what they’re talking about.

It’s not exactly crazy, but organized chaos. But I sure wish it was organized in a different way.

“V” Shape July 26, 2009

It’s been a few days since Zeus has been outside due to the fact that Mom and and I haven’t been feeling our best the past few days. We both suffer from ulcers (which is normal for some who have had their gallbladders removed), and on top of that, I was having issues with my sinuses. Of course, for us sinus sufferers, this isn’t something new. Summer always brings out the worst of allergens and I am always sniffling or stocking up on tissue. I hate Summer. LOL Have I mentioned that before?

geesev_bigSo last night, Manders and I decided to take Zeus out to play in his kiddie pool we had bought for him. As he splashed around, getting us wet, I looked up at the sky and saw birds flying in a “V” formation. A chill ran down my spine. Seeing that, for me, means cooler weather will soon be here. It has also been getting darker sooner. That’s another great sign! Texas has had such a brutal Summer that any sign of cooler weather just sends our hears aflutter. Most Texans enjoy the Summer, though I’m sure they changed their minds this time as temperatures easily hit 108* by the time it’s 3PM. As I look to see what the temperatures are for the rest of the week, I can’t help but smile. It seems as if the triple digit heat will leave us alone atleast until Friday.

I love Texas in the Fall. It’s absolutely gorgeous. As the setting Sun hits the oak tree in the back in November, its as if the tree were on fire. Seeing the kitten that lives outside play as the leaves fall around him, not sure which leaf to play with since there are so many. Watching a squirrel forage for food before Winter arrives as he brushes past huge bundles of fallen leaves. Watching the trees change from Summer green to burnt orange right before your very eyes.

Texas is beautiful in the Fall. I love Texas.

CIJ: Pet Gift Ideas July 20, 2009

christmas-kitten-cat-756396Don’t forget our furry friends this Christmas! Our 3 cats and 1 dog are as much as a part of this family than anyone else and we have always given them some sort of gift (unwrapped, of course) so that they don’t feel left out at Christmas.

There are TONS of gifts that you can give your doggy or your kitty at Christmas! What my family always does, even if they receive something else, is get our fur babies treats. Since the Holidays are filled with sweets and pets can’t usually have them, we give them treats so that they don’t beg for that piece of chocolate. There are numerous treats out there pretty much everywhere so pick up a bag/can of your pet’s favorite treats for Christmas!

Toys are another great way to celebrate the Holidays with Fido or Fluffly. Smokie and Patches (Smokie is my cat and Patches is my Mom’s) enjoy catnip-filled mice and string while Princess (Manders’ kitty) enjoys the feather and fluffy toys. Zeus will play with practically anything but really loves to play tug-of-war. So depending on your pet’s favorite game(s), giet them a toy they will enjoy!

Even though Fido loves to sleep on your bed or Fluffy wants to sleep on your favorite couch, get them the gift that keeps on giving! Instead of losing your couch or bed to your pet, give them their own! At PetCo, they have all shapes and sizes to choose from. They even have dog couches and cat cradles for your loved one to sleep in on those extra cold nights. Fido will feel happy that he has his own bed that no one else can sleep on and Fluffy will be glad that she has her own quiet place!

If you have a friend that has pets and you want to give them something, give them the gift of a gift card. If something happens and they need to run to PetsMart or PetCo, they won’t have to worry if they have enough money to get what they need. Maybe they’re thinking of getting a pet and giving them the giftcard will make them feel more confident in their choice, since it won’t be for just a dog or for just a cat.

Every year at Christmas at Wal-Mart, they sell animal Christmas stockings that are filled with toys and treats. So take the guesswork out of wondering what your pet will enjoy and get them a Christmas stocking. They will be so excited, they’ll play with more than one of the toys included! I know we have given our pets a Christmas stocking for years and every year, they play with it like it will be their last! Sometimes they even play with it months after. I know Fido and Fluffy will enjoy it!

Christmas in July: Dear Santa July 17, 2009

Note: I took the idea from Manders (aka Confetti Dreams).

 

Dear Santa:

It’s July. It’s hot, muggy, and no rain. I’m tired of it and wishing Fall would get here soon. So what does this have to do with you?

Everything! You grace us with your presence every year at Christmas, and getting through Fall just means you’ll visit us once again. But I must remind you: The cats are still sort of afraid of strangers. They are attached to their owners and don’t want attention from anyone unless he or she is part of the family. Of course, that doesn’t include that dog. They hate him. But then again, he loves to chase them. Speaking of the dog, he won’t bite. I promise that. His bark is a lot louder than his bite. Milk and Cookies are in the fridge. Pup likes cookies and kitties like milk. For the reindeer, since it’s going to be a long night, there is some soda in the fridge as well. They could probably use the caffeine.

So what do I want this year? Not much, really. Like my other half, a laptop would be REALLY nice. Then Mom wouldn’t get tired of hearing us argue about who has been on the longest or asking “When am I getting on?”. We wouldn’t have to argue either. True, sisters (especially twins) argue over inanimate objects like computers but after a while, it gets boring. We need something new to argue over! I’m pretty sure if I said more books or a nutcracker (which is on my “just-in-case” list), we wouldn’t have to argue over that and Christmas would end up boring. But of course I’ll take practically anything dealing with books, movies, music (heavy metal or Jagged Ege please), or nutcrackers.

Manders will take George Strait or Kahn (from Kamelot) under the tree this year. Forget any CDs or DVDs by these men. She’ll just take them as they are- in the flesh. She wants them only for a month, but I know her too well and she secretly wants them for more than a month. Please leave a note on how long she can keep them. Oh and if they come with any accessories (guitars, ya know), leave those as well. Mom could probably use a vacation. As far as where, that’s a conundrum. I have no clue! You’re better off asking her. I don’t know what you could get Daddy. You might want to ask him too.

Oh and if it isn’t too much trouble, please make sure that all pets are in the house. Smokie likes to escape. Give the Mrs my best.

Quiet… June 6, 2009

As I sit here, the only sounds I hear are the hums of the fans and my fingers hitting the keyboard. It’s unusually quiet- I am the only one awake. Even the cats are asleep. Zeus is asleep in the chair. Patches is on top of the television (which I expect her to fall off of any moment as she usually does). Smokie and Princess are asleep in the bedroom with Manders- who must have been really tired. Mom is asleep on the couch because she has a headache. Dad has gone out for a while to do a few errands.

I usually don’t like all the quietness because it feels like I could go crazy with my thoughts. But because of a migraine yesterday and endless channel surfring on the TV (there was nothing on that piqued my interest!), I welcome the quiet. No music, no television, no dog barking at air- soothing quiet.

It’s been a while since I could sit here, in the living room, with nothing but my thoughts. Usually Zeus is making some sort of noise with his endless amount of toys. Smokie would want attention as soon as she woke up. Not long after that, Manders would wake up and would want online. While I have no thoughts in which I have a decision to make, it is nice to reconnect with myself once more. I am a believer in that meditation (in some shape or form) truly cleanses your body, mind, and spirit. I haven’t meditated in a long while due to everything that was going on and there never seemed to be any peace and quiet. It even seemed a little louder than I liked in the bedroom- even while reading and having some movie on for background noise. It’s like I couldn’t concentrate on what I was reading because even the words pounded in my head.

Maybe I’ll get a little more reading done than I had gotten done yesterday. I have 2 books I need to read and while I haven’t even made a dent in the other one (with almost 1000 pages and I am only on page 135), I am almost halfway with the other. Both interest me but I refuse to read them when I will just skip over a majority of what the book says instead of my imagination running wild as I read.I am finally making a dent in my quest to read 100 books by December 31st. To make it seem as if it wasn’t a blazing 100* outside, I even plan to read books that were made for the Christmas Holiday instead of Summer. Why? Not only do I look forward to Christmas every year, reading about snow and Christmas trees will make it seem as if it were a mere 30* out instead of triple digits.

Patches just fell. Told ya she would.

Crating Cujo… May 20, 2009

Zeus has a nickname- “Cujo”. He has his moments (which stems from his accident) where he gets snippy or frustrated because of his arthritis and he will get a little “bitey” where he will playfully bite your hand. That’s why we named him “Cujo”. Not to mention he has the energy of a 3-year-old full of sugar and will run around like he’s terrorizing a city.

But we recently bought a crate for Zeus. It’s not a place for his “time outs” or for punishment. It’s mostly a place for him to calm down when he has one of his moments, when he needs a more quiet place to sleep, or when we need to leave the house for an hour or two. He has separation anxiety, which he’s always had since he was little, and ends up tearing everything apart when we leave. So to make sure he doesn’t get into something he’s not supposed to, we will crate him. If we plan on being gone for more than an hour or two, we probably won’t crate him because that’s just mean.

But he isn’t exactly taking to it very well. Because there was a lot of noise while we were putting it up, he got scared. He’s never heard noise like that in the house so he didn’t know how to react. So when it was time to introduce him to it, he was very wary. Dad had to try to coax him in there otherwise we bought it for nothing. He eventually went in there, and to get him used to the door being closed, we closed it. He started panicking and after a few minutes, he started calming down. Not extremely calm, but enough to where he didn’t try to move his bed anymore. We opened the door and he immediately came out.

He’s still kind of scared of it and hasn’t gone back in but today, since my Dad isn’t exactly the calmed person, we’re going to try again but not as aggressively. First we’ll work on getting him to where he isn’t so scared of it. Maybe I’ll crawl in and show him there’s nothing to be afraid of. Almost crawled in yesterday but even I wasn’t so sure I could have crawled out.

This isn’t going to be an interesting post. But because of the Swine flu outbreak and regular flu cases here in my area, I am homebound. I can get out for the ride, I can’t get out of the car. So I won’t be able to speak of the hot guy I saw on the way home or some cute guy saying “Hi” to me on the way out of the store (if that ever happens.). So naturally, I am inclined to speak of Smokie, Zeus, the books I am reading, or the music I am listening to. Or maybe perhaps the weird stuff I do when I am not blogging. Ok, I really don’t do any weird stuff when I’m not online. I read, watch TV, sleep (which I seem to be doing a lot lately), or study. Speaking of studying, I need to get back to doing that. Maybe I will this evening. Otherwise I’ll never be ready for that test.

Smokie has seemed to developed a habit of sticking her tail into their water bowl. For the second time today when I pet her, her tail was wet. I know it can’t be from cleaning herself because even when she grooms, she isn’t soaking wet. Since I am witty, I kept saying “Are you leaking? My cat is leaking!” and the family laughed. It just seems weird because the tip of her tail seems to be wet and I can’t figure it out unless she IS leaking or sticking it in the water bowl. Well atleast when it comes time for her Spring bath, she’ll be used to water. Yes, I bathe my cat. It’s not as hard as it seems when you start young. Except one year on my birthday, she escaped my grasp and the bathroom. She was trailing cat shampoo and water all over the house. Just to piss her off, I relathered her.

I am still reading the Twilight series. I am currently on the 3rd book and am in love with it. I would love to fall in love with a vampire like Edward that has superhuman powers. I know it’s just fantasy. But how cool would it be to fall in love with someone that makes your heart beat fast with every thought of his/her voice or knee-wobbling kisses. We all dream of that. I am also re-reading “A Dirty Job” by Christopher Moore. I bought the book after I checked it out from the library because I loved it. I can’t say what it’s about without going to Google for a synopsis or reading the book to give you one. It’s been about a year or two since I’ve read it so I don’t remember everything. But there is one funny part that always keeps me laughing (even if it is a bit morbid)- everytime his daughter says “kitty”, anyone in the near vicinity drops dead. I know it shouldn’t be funny but if there was a killer on the loose and all you had to say was “kitty” to get him dead?

You will not believe what song I am currently listening to! Does anyone remember the first time they heard Henry Hall’s “Teddy Bear Picnic”?

Decorator I am not… April 23, 2009

Crone and Bear It’s newest blog post reminded me that I am far from ever being a house decorator.

You can tell that the bedroom belongs to someone who isn’t in her 30’s. There are stuffed animals everywhere (okay, not everywhere. Several on the desk, on a nightstand, and on a shelf), mismatched curtains, a HUGE Longhorns above to bed like a headboard, and books everywhere. CDs are strewn about and none of the covers match. In fact, I have a black/beige blanket while Twin has a designer-looking blanket. Nothing seems to match and even the UT stuff I have accumulated are in different places. Even some of the curtains are hanging at different lengths.

Yea, I am 100% sure I am not a decorator.

I would watch HGTV for those home decorating shows and feel inspired. I would look around the bedroom and think “Oh yea, if we move this over here, it would look better!”. I would move the item but would be faced with another dilemma- where to put the item that was just replaced with something else. Because we don’t have storage or a big house for that matter, we have boxes stacked in the bedroom. It looks like we could be moving! So naturally, if I can’t find an item that was replaced for something else, it goes into a box. Yes, the boxes are labeled. Told you it looked like we’re moving.

Luckily, after Valentine’s Day, I finally put my prized Nutcracker away until the Holidays. But another problem goes along with that. What the hell do I put in there for Spring? I have cats so plants are out of the question. I have a dog so indoor trees are out of the question. I don’t even have a stuffed bunny. Sad, I know. I would love to paint the bedroom a nice rich dark color but where to put the pets while we paint is a problem. Princess and Patches don’t exactly get along. We’re not sure why. Maybe I’ll just buy yards and yards of fabric and use it as wallpaper. Safe, easy, efficient, and reuseable. Yea, fabric as wall paper. Brilliant idea!

I was nabbed by my good friend Linda at Crone and Bear It for a game of 8 tag. I love stuff like this so you know I’m game!.  So here we go:
8 things I’m looking forward to:

1. Start the local community college and off to Georgetown, Texas I go to finish up at Southwestern University for Animal Science!
2. Having my first bloggy giveaway! (Now if only I could hurry up and receive the product I’m supposed to review!)
3. Spring storms to come- remember, I live for these!
4. Zeus getting his harness and new leash so maybe he wouldn’t chew on his leash and pull us.

5. Getting back to where my hair is black all the time (instead of my dark brown roots showing and overtaking my hair!)

6. Having a new car to play with for college!

7. Finally finishing “Fool” by Christopher Moore (late 17th century English slang makes me confused.)
8. Losing a few pounds- what woman doesn’t want to, right?

8 things I did yesterday:

1. Twittered.
2. Did errands.
3. Give the doggy a bath.
4. Read some.

6. Told Manders she was as fun as a “kitten playing with yarn”.
7. Spent time on SuperPoke Pets (my new obsession).
8. TRIED to review a CD on the iPod until I realized not all the songs were on it. (That helps in NO way.)

8 things I wish I could do:

1. Learn how to organize so everything I own isn’t in some random box or all over the desk.
2. Constantly hold bloggy giveaways (because I like to give. LOL)

3. Make a stranger’s day everyday!

4. Learn to speak German. (All I know is enough to say “good day”, “good afternoon”, and “good night”… oh, and my last name (which means “child”.))
5. Vacation in Scotland!
6. Teach Zeus to sit, stay, and “No”.
7. Become well-known in computers so I could build my own.
8. Figure out the secret to men.

8 shows I watch:

3. The Good, the Bad, the Ugly
4. Anyone who wants to play
5. Anyone who wants to play
6. Anyone who wants to play
7. Anyone who wants to play
8. And anyone else who wants to play

I obviously don’t have a lot of personal “blogging” friends so I am stuck with figuring out those who do check out my blog. So if any readers want to play, feel free to do so! Now that I have no witty or charming answers- play!

Post your own answers to the questions in each category, including 8 people you want to tag. Have fun!

Zeus will live! April 5, 2009

It was as if a miracle happened and no miracles happen to my family!

Zeus ate a small bite of chicken yesterday and went outside. Even though he didn’t have a lot of energy, he tried chasing after the outside cat. When me and Twin went to get Father from work, before we even walked out the door, he got up and went to the door like “No, you are not going without me!”. But because he is still sick, we didn’t want to risk it so we left him at home. Today he has eaten more chicken and hasn’t vomited.

I don’t want to say life is getting better but it seems there might be light at the end of this tunnel after all.

I’ve started studying more, haven’t told mom about the license yet, and have had chocolate. Maybe life is getting back on track…. let’s hope.

Zeus isn’t doing too well. The vet rechecked his blood (since he couldn’t find the exact problem last time) and said he had advanced parvo. And as we all know, in puppies, that’s not a good sign. I’ve tried not to cry the past couple of days but I cried my eyes out this morning. I’m so depressed and it’s so depressing. C’mon, give me a break! I can’t handle everything at once- and losing him would put me over the edge. Like it would just tear me to pieces.

Remember how I said that I didn’t feel bad for no studying when I had that cold? Who knew I could do a 180! I haven’t studied for a week (except for last night) and I felt so lost! I need to get the ball rolling if I want to understand what I struggle with. C’mon Angela (that’s me!), get your head into the game! Just a little mental Post-It note for yours truly.

… I’m on the wrong boat.”. Those are the words of Twin while I was on the phone with Cyber Guy. Frankly, I have to agree. This can’t be all life has to offer!

We consulted with a computer guru and he said that we need a higher watt on the power supply considering how it it is always on. Good point. The problem is that the one we need is $120 and we can’t afford it. Or at least not right now. Who knows when we will. Maybe May…

Zeus is still hanging on. He has a nasty bacterial infection and since the vet said that this kind is a “wait and see” infection, he has Zeus on antibiotics and a liquid diet (since he won’t eat). I feel so bad for him and I’m kinda scared- I won’t lie. I don’t wanna lose him. After all he’s been through, he has to come through this. He just has to.

Ugh. As if life wasn’t depressing enough. I need chocolate.

I have not had chocolate in a long time. I am a chocoholic. So anytime I get a chance to get my hands on any, it’s “bye bye” chocolate, hello heaven.

When Mom woke up this morning, she proceeded to tell me that besides chicken tenders, we had choclate in the fridge. Did someone say chocolate?! Well, of course I could have had the chocolate first but I decided to have the chicken tenders first because lets face it- if I have sugar before anything else in the morning, ugh. But once I bit into that chocolatey goodness, I could hear angels sing. Now that I’ve had chocolate, I’m good for a couple of days. Nothing beats chocolate in the morning.

Looks like I’ll only be reviewing half of my CLEAN & CLEAR kit soon. Zeus, the psycho dog, chewed through the box and got some of the wipes. Not sure which wipes he swiped, but I know he did. He’s one of these dogs that think that everything is his and we are entitled to share. I don’t think so! He has his stuffed babies, his own bed, his own food, and his own sticks. He doesn’t need anything of ours! Let’s hope he gets out of this otherwise I will start building shelves all over the house. Where’s a sexy handyman when ya need him?

Lately I’ve been hammering on and on about wanting to review products and possibly hold a giveaway. Everyone else is doing it- it sounds like fun! And you know me- I’m all about fun. I’m the epitome of fun. I even have fun when I sleep. Ok, so not really but you get the idea.

As I was going down the list of other blog buttons and reading them, I stopped and wondered- maybe I could have a Texas Banter Reviews blog. But I stopped myself. I just can’t handle another blog. I update this one daily, Frugal Sissy weekly, and TwinTastic whenever I can remember. On top of that, I have to study for college AND find out what kind of business my family can start. Oy!  What was I thinking? You’d figure that after over 200 posts on here, several on the others, and College Algebra that my brain would be fried. But remember- I’m witty!

Of course, I’m still looking for products to review. I have a product from BzzAgent to review but it’s a Clean & Clear Makeup Removal kit so that will have to wait when I paint my pretty face for the boys. Who knows when that will be. Makeup + cold = weird complexion. I learned that the hard way one day. I was sick with a cold and when I’m sick, I’m pale. So I thought putting a darker foundation would help. Boy was I wrong! It looked like my face had tanned while I had on longjohns. But when I review the product (on BzzAgent as well on TB), I’ll get lucky and get more inquiries for a review/giveaway.

I still wish I could get rid of this cold and wish the dog would take a nap. He’s grumpy and needs one. So do I.

Once again, sleep escapes me. Yep- I have insomnia. It is almost midnight here and I am wide awake. No droopy eyes, not nodding, nothing.

I have been on Twitter, “tweeting” weather warnings for other states (and a wind advisory for my area), and pretty much other nonsense. I’ve been on Etsy, trying to find a sponsor for a giveaway. I think I might actually have one, and this time, I am about 95% sure about it. She has THE cutest stuff. I wish I was creative like that. I can’t draw (even my stick figures look sick), paint, or even mold anything with clay. I once tried to do a bat but it look like a 4-year-old did it. Not someone 20 years older than that. The only thing that resembled something close to anything was my ghost but hell- those are easy to do. Guess I’ll stick to writing and animals.

We took Zeus to the park today. It sure felt like Spring! A little humid (got some weather coming, according to our weather people) and windy, but sure felt nice. He did okay, besides trying to drag us. He has a bad habit of pulling on his leash so when we get a chance, we’re going to get him a harness (the kind that lifts his front legs a little when he tries to pull) and a thicker leash. He likes to chew on his leash so we figured a thicker leash will yield better results. Oh the cutest thing happened. There were these 2 guys with a small puppy. Zeus kind of walked up to the puppy but stopped within like 6 feet of it. He didn’t growl or bark or anything. The only barking and growling dog was the puppy, who I think was trying to intimidate Zeus. Considering Zeus has never really seen another dog up close, he did excellent. Now if only he would stop pulling on his leash and we’ll be happy.

This sucks- I’m wide awake, and even the dog with unending energy is sleeping! Woe is me.
