Project 52! Thirty Eight

 I miss the little ones!!!

Baby Bug!
This week was filled with moments that made me miss some very special little ones. It breaks my heart to be so far away from them for such a long time. Almost two months ago I saw them at my parent's house before they moved to California, and that is by far the longest I've gone without seeing these cuties! And man do I miss some sweet hugs from my Bug and getting Little Man to laugh. He has the best belly laugh, and I could listen to it all day!

Little Man about a year ago!
This week was Bug's seventh birthday and the first time I haven't been able to celebrate with her, and right now she is partying in Disney Land! I know she must be having a blast and Little Man's probably having a blast as well!

Bug and Little Man's new little sister!
I also got to see the first picture of my new niece, and Bug is so excited that she gets to have a sister. Little Man doesn't know what he's in for now that he'll be surrounded by girls! Also can you believe how similar these three babies look? The moment I saw this sonogram I though, "Oh wow, she looks just like [Bug]!"

2 day old Roo!
To be completely honest the lack of hugs and chubby cheeks is giving me a bit of the dreaded "fever," but luckily I get to see Miss Roo next weekend. Although her cheeks have lost their baby chub, her sweet smile melts my heart! And as for the "fever" it's going to have to wait a few years until after I finish nursing clinicals.

Note: I feel like I need to apologize that none of these pictures are new with the exception of the sonogram picture, which was snapped and posted on facebook by my sister. But this is the best way to tell you about my week, which is the purpose of my P52!

Rough Week

Last week was super rough and posting was so far down on my to do list that it just never happened. The previous weekend we had friends visiting and had a blast! But that, unfortunately, means that I didn't work on school stuff and, subsequently ended up with a ton of work throughout the week. Add in an exceptional long day of classes in Wednesday (9am-7:30 pm) and I was beat when I finally got home, but still had to do homework. Thankfully the paper that I attempted to write on Thursday night didn't get turned in until today (not due until this Wednesday), because when I proofread it last night it was terrible! I basically had to rewrite the first paragraph and trash the second.

This week I'm much more on top of everything and next week will start my first round of tests, wish me luck!

Project 52! Thirty Seven

Getting Better

I finally think we've made progress! Sophie seems to be getting her apatite back even if that does include a new found interest in human food. We've run out of chicken flavored treats, and she's not a fan of fish flavors, so last week I gave her a small piece of grilled chicken. After a moment spent checking it out to ensure that what I was giving her was indeed edible she couldn't eat it fast enough. Let me say that while I love my cats, I'm not one to cook food for them. The best they usually get is Blue Buffalo wet and dry food. And under normal circumstances wet food is a treat, but she won't touch the dry stuff anymore, and it's kinda making me crazy. But if I can get my anorexic to eat I'll feed her just about anything.

She purred Monday night during a bedtime cuddle! I was so thrilled! I haven't heard it since but I'll take what I can get.

We have another follow up appointment this Saturday, and hopefully we'll make it through without a seizure since she is currently not taking the phenobarbital. I'm also hoping that she can get all of her vaccinations so that we don't have to go back until it's time for her dental cleaning.

As a whole she's getting better. We still have a ways to go but we are making progress. My main goal right now is to fatten her up! She's eating more, but not enough!

Project 52! Thirty six


This week was my first full week, and it went quite well. Nothing really important to report. But my professor seem nice enough, even if one thinks that her course is the most important class ever when the only reason anyone is taking it is because it's required by the school. Even so I think it's going be a pretty good semester as long as I can this financial aid figured out.

New Toy

Today my tablet came in! Can we t walk about what a nerd I am? I felt like a kid on Christmas! It's will come in super handy for school! Notes and textbooks easily accessed from one device. Plus I can only imagine how handy this device will be for clinicals next fall ( hopefully I'll get in on my first attempt).

How are classes going so far? I can't complain! So far my professors seem okay. And m I don't think that anything will be too terribly difficult! However, my  South Park  themed composition class seems a bit odd.

How's Sophie doing?  Well... Personality wise she's very close to her normal self, which is wonderful. But with every good ( with this cat) there's always something bad. The bad right now is that she's still not eating much at all! I am so frustrated! We have completely stopped her phenobarbital and she barely eats 3 ounces of food each day. It's getting to be pretty ridiculous at this point and I'm wondering if there isn't something else wrong with her... For now we are just waiting for her next appointment to see what the vet has to say. And I can only hope that she won't have a seizure at the vet because we took her off the medicine. I may put her back on at a very low dose next week to prepare her for her visit, since seizures are not fun for anyone.

Also Tye claims that she's been purring, but I can't verify that information since I haven't heard a thing...

Not Much Happening Here

This weekend has been pretty relaxed at our house. We were supposed to have some friends in but that pesky Hurricane Isaac put a wrench in those plans, but they should be coming to visit next weekend.So Saturday we got an early start and went shopping and spent too much money. The majority of the money we spent went to three new leather jackets from the Wilson's Leather outlet. Two jackets for me and one for Tye. Now I'm waiting for some cold weather so that I can wear them. But, on the other hand, the beach weather can stick around a little longer.

Sunday we were pretty lazy and didn't get going until the afternoon. We planned on beginning the day with some P90X, but in the move we seem to have misplaced my resistance bands. By the time we gave up looking it was too late and too hot for bike riding and it's a good thing we just skipped all together, because when we went to the beach later that day we found that the road along the coast was still closed. But we did enjoy our evening at the beach even if the water wasn't as clear as it usually is and the edge of the water was littered with shells.

Nothing on the agenda for today, except for getting some school work finished for tomorrow.
