Wednesday With Squid: Late Entry

I was making dinner and he was anxiously waiting for me to turn around and leave the food unattended. I could see his evil plan brewing so I watched him carefully. He saw there anxious the WHOLE time. 

Other than the look of total mischief on his face he is a total stud sitting there isn't he?

Mascara Review

This stuff sucks. I feel like the rubber nubs do not assist with application at all. I think it hinders. The nubs are too little to help saturate my eyelashes at all. The mascara sticks in between the nubs and then when you try to put it on it doesn't even apply. SO....I will be getting a new mascara ASAP. 

Any suggestions?

Squids Christmas Wish List

An outdoor enclosed play pen for trips outside in the back yard.

A Kitty Tree House!

I think Santa might be okay with the Play pen but I am not sure if the tree house would fit in his sled. . .

Cuteness By Cassy

What do you think? A friend of mine wants a pink one so I am going to do some experimenting with pinks and clips. Cute though eh? I went home sick today from work so If I get any energy-not likely I might get crafty....Doubtful. I feel like crap-o-la.

Post Op With Squidrow

My little guy can't get comfortable. He goes from my lap to his tent back to my lap again. When he walks he limps. So sad.

Wednesday With Squid: Squid Is Home!!!!

He is home and doing well. I had no idea they kept the testicles and just tied them in a knot. So he has shaved testicles, he's a little embarrassed so don't stare. His paws, as you can see, are swollen and bloody. He has slept since he got home. He takes his pain medication well without any issues. 

So at the vet after we dropped him off he had to be sedated. He ripped a girl to shreds when she tried to comfort him prior to the surgery. After the surgery when he was groggy he would growl at the vet techs when they walked by. He took his bandages off himself and wouldn't let anyone touch him. I get there this morning and he is hissing and growling. They ask me to walk back there to get him so they don't have to touch him and the second he see's me he starts purring and rubbing against the cage. He meowed his head off till I picked him up and then tucked his head under my chin and wouldn't move. The Vet and the Vet Techs couldn't believe that he was the same cat they had been dealing with all day. 

He loves his mommy. :)

Pour Salt In My Wounds

Don't forget to really rub it in good so it's at it's ultimate level of burn. Seriously....

First our community is terrorized by a out of control fire. Houses have burnt down and 5000 people were evacuated. We watched the mountain burn from our driveway. I think I had my first panic attack Sunday night from the insane stress. 

Second I had my 5th migraine in less than two weeks. Yeah 5! Miserable! Plus I can't get an appointment today to get fixed. Annoying!

Third we just dropped Squid off at the vet. He is getting neutered and declawed. It's terrible. He started hissing the second we walked in the doors. I left him with a blanket that smells like us and he has Mo the Mouse (his cat nip toy).

To Evacuate Or Not To Evacuate

GeoTagged, [N40.50155, E112.00695]

In case you haven't heard yet our community of Herriman Utah is evacuating due to a fire caused by a machine gun training at Camp Williams. We can see the flames from our driveway and deck. We are 3 blocks outside the evacuation line. News officials are saying the boundaries will expand and to be prepared. We have packed a few belongings and are ready to leave our home if we have to.

Three homes are confirmed to have burned down. Pray for them. We are scared and unsure of what is going to happen to our home.

Wednesdays With Squid

Squid is my huge 6 month old kitten. He and I are total BFF's and he follows me around all day long. He enjoys doing laundry-as you can see, a little too much. He could be in a dead sleep across the house and hear me open the dryer and be there in no time. He'll be climbing in and before I know It he is buried. Today he jumped in the washer while it was filling. He flew out of it, turned around, looked at the washer and hissed then stomped off. I was laughing so hard I forgot to put the soap in the washer. I had to rewash everything once I realized.

My silly Squidrow. I enjoy my days with Squid. He makes what would have been a boring day waiting for Steven to get home an exciting and comical day.

Best Sleep-Worst Migraine

I had the best nights sleep last night but the worst migraine ever. I threw up once earlier in the day (a common occurrence when I have a migraine). All day I felt like if I moved my head I would throw up. I dry heaved multiple times when I moved my head. It was miserable.l Tylenol, Excedrin, and Ibuprofen with loads of Diet Coke later I saw no improvement. So finally we get home at 1030 last night after a family dinner and Steven casually tells me we have lortab. Hello!!! It was from when Steven was so sick last year. So I popped a half (I can't handle drugs. They stay with me longer than most people and I have mega effects from them). So like I said I took it and 30 minutes later I felt so much better. My words were slurring but I finally relaxed and the pain subdued.

I had the best lortab induced nights sleep ever. It was great. First night in forever that I didn't dream about work, cleaning the house, running up a hill. It was great.

Wish me luck tonight because I can't do this all the time. I really hate taking drugs-hence the reason I tried Melatonin and sensory relaxation to sleep first.

Can't Sleep

Do you have problems sleeping? I do. I dream about work-every night. It's getting old. I have tried 'white noise' by having a fan going. Melatonin and benadryl don't help. I did sleep better when I watched a movie before bed but Stevie doesn't care for that because then he can't sleep. 

When you can't sleep what do you do? Do your dreams leave you feeling like you have worked your butt off all night?

Superstitious? Yep.

I am very superstitious. I bawled the day we signed for our life insurance. I feel like it's a bad omen. Yes, I understand it is necessary but It freaks me out. When Steven walks out the door I say "love you, be careful, have fun." He could be in the truck pulling out of the drive way but I say it every time no matter what. I go with my gut. If I have a bad feeling we do not ignore my gut! 


So why this sudden blogging of my eccentric behavior...? Because we passed on a 4 day trip this weekend to San Diego due to flying on 9/11. We would have to be on a plane that day. HELLO!!! That is just bad carama! We are rescheduling for October. Sea world will still be awesome in October...right?
Would you fly on 9/11?

My Buddy...And Me!

I'm watching HGTV waiting for the husband to get home. Squid wimped out and fell asleep. He couldn't hang.

Separation Makes You Stronger

I always thought that was a false statement. I thought that if you were apart long enough you would no longer feel for that person. This theory proved correct with ex-boyfriends so I cemented this in my brain as truth. BOY was I wrong!

Steven has been out of town every day for the past 5 days for work. To make matters worse I had to work 5 days straight as well so I missed out on my chance to share a hotel room with him in the evenings. So instead of staying out of town he made the trip back to me every single night. He would kiss me when he came in at midnight and them climb into bed next to me. I then got up and kissed him goodbye on my way to work at 0530. That is a crappy 5 days.

So did I fall out of love? Did I get used to him not being there?


I am completely serious when I say that I cried myself to sleep every night. When we were dating I would sleep at his parents house in my sister-in-laws old bedroom so that I didn't have to leave him at night. So in the past 5+ years we have not slept apart. It broke my heart to go to bed without him next to me.

I get to see my Stevie for more than a goodnight kiss tonight and I am giddy and excited nervous. I missed him so much!

Being apart really did make my love for him stronger. Maybe our love grew stronger or maybe I realized I can't take a single moment with my amazing husband for granted. Being apart made me want to savor every second with him.

So my advice to those of you reading this: Do not take time with your spouse for granted. You never know when that time will end.

Seriously-A year???

Did I really graduate almost a year ago? Have I really been a nurse for a year?? WTF?
