A soul lost

Well, I moved into my new house 5 weeks ago. It was all good until tonight. Four weeks ago I got a momma cat and her two kittens from my mom. A picture will follow. I named the kittens Juno and Marrock cause they was brother and sister and took care of eachother. Three weeks ago they got sick, I took them to the vet and they got better. Juno was the one sickest. This week they got sick again. Marrock was the sickest this time. I took them to the vet, spent $125 on meds and tests for them and tonight, about an hour ago, Marrock died. I cried, and William is still crying.

Marrock is the darker of the two kittens. He was barely over a pound when he died. So, I found a shoe box, wrapped him up all gentle like and closed the box. I took him outside and burried him under the pines trees in my back yard.

It has been over a decade since I have been in a relationship. A serious one anyway. Probablly even longer and then I met someone. His name is Pat and is a tattoo artist. He is 14 years older than me.

We talked for 3 hours on the phone last night and I dont even like phones. We have so much in common. Everything almost, even down to the way we eat M&M's. Neither of us like brussle sprouts, and we both laugh about the same things. We share similar views about politics and religion and everyday life. We both love storms and the simple things in life. He loves kids and don't have a problem with mine. He even wants one of his own.

He said he hoped I was his girlfriend and I said sure. I really want to make this work. This is what he looks like.

Racoon of a Different color

I have strange critters here. This is a white racoon that makes himseld at home eating my cats food! Still awesome!

Spider Bite

Ok so sometime Saturday night I got bit by a spider. I don't know what kind or anything like that. All I know is that Sunday I got up and my arm was seeping clear fluid from two tiny holes on my forearm.

The spot is about the size of a dime and itches like hell.

Gross ain't it?

Odd looking Skunk

So, the other night I was sitting at the table and looked out the door. I thought I saw a strange cat until the critter turned around. It was a skunk, but nto a normal one. This one is mostly white excapt for a bit of black on his legs and his tail is grey. I know the picture is dark but you can still see it is no normal skunk.


Ok so last time i posted pics of my cat he was just a kitten. Now he is two years old and such a cow.. here are some snap shots of him.

Computer Broke

Oh, and I havent mentioned it yet but on December 15 my computer decided to go on the fritz, December 20 my internet went down. On december 28th I sent my laptop off to be repaired and on the 29th the internet people made it to fix my net. I haven't got my laptop back so have to borrow my mom's husbands til I get mine back.

5. Knit at least 2 Dishcloths/Washcloths a month
6. Clean house every week
7. Keep up with lesson plans

Update on My Car

Ok so the Insurance Claims adjuster came out Friday and looked at my car. He said it would cost about $1189.33 to fix my car. So I am waiting on some guy to call then the claims adjuster will call again and mail me a check so I can fix my car.

On another note, I did get paid on the 30th after being told it would be the 15th before my first check. Woot!

Teenage Drivers...

Well today had to of been the worst day of my life. Two days ago I purchased a brand new car. A 2009 Toyota Corolla. Today, in town, on the way to get soda's (That were on sale $1 a 2 liter)... some young girl, still with her learners permit decided to turn right. I was behind her, she used her blinker, slowed down at the intersection and began to turn.. about half way into it she changed her mind or something then turned back into traffic and there was a screeching of brakes and tires and a awful scraping sound. I tried to stop and turn away from her reentering traffic but I wasn't fast enough. I couldn't go too far due to traffic passing us in the next lane. My passenger side front fender and bumper now has some brand new scratches and dents in it as well as my headlight bracket is broken. My bumper is also pushed up into the fender a bit.

This was the girl's first time in town driving. Her father told the cop exactly what happened and I told him the same. I literally got sick to my stomach about it. Now I have to wait until Monday to call my insurance agent (who is also the other person's agent) and then wait until Monday or Tuesday afternoon for the police report.

And of course all my mom's husband could say was "you shouldn't have been tailgating." As if I had a choice at a traffic light in bumper to bumper traffic.
