I have a choice. I can either move back in with Jeff, or I can quit my job (so as to access my retirement fund) and maybe end up having to move back in with Jeff anyway. And either way, thanks to a checking account miscalculation, if I don't come up with about $500 before … Continue reading Not Really A Choice
I have a plan that I'm going to try before I decide whether or not to put Nina in a different school. First, I'm going to contact her teacher and propose a weekly reward system. I've already spoken with Nina about it and she's totally on board. The way it will work is like so: … Continue reading A Plan
I just wanted to let everyone know Nyx passed last night at a little after midnight. Thank you so much for your prayers and support.
Jeff came over last night when I called because I thought I was going to need him to take us to the vet so we could put Nyx to sleep. When he got here, he had a strong flashback to Jasmine's death, as had Gab. We cried together and he said he really needed to … Continue reading Fucking Fuckers
The vet thinks Nyx has feline panleukopenia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feline_panleukopenia and http://maxshouse.com/feline_panleukopenia.htm) and that there's a chance she could survive it. All I know is that she hasn't eaten anything of substance since Thursday morning, she's starting to be dehydrated (stopped seeking water on her own last night), she has no energy at all, she's seeking places … Continue reading Prayers for Nyx
I've removed all blankets from Nyx's world - this means, of course, she has to stay away when I'm sleeping, but I have to reprogram this cat. I went to Petsmart to pick-up Feliway, but they didn't have that specific brand, so I picked up another. I did, however, find this cat litter: Cat Attract … Continue reading Nyx Update
I love Nyx - I've had her for 3 weeks now. When I got her, she was about 7 weeks old. I asked if she'd been litter box trained and the answer was no. I read up on box training and got started. Three weeks later, I still have a big problem. I kept her … Continue reading Help! Nyx Has A Problem!
I have several things to write about, but it's been so crazy since I got home I haven't had time to properly get down all the things I want to get down. I'm thinking tomorrow night might be my best opportunity. Kids go home today. I have lots of fun and fabulous plans tonight with … Continue reading Seattle & Stuff
So Jeff has been over a few nights this week. I don't have a car and when I need to run errands, he's helping me out. Additionally, he's been doing Xbox repair, so coming into Tempe has something of a business trip the two times he's done it this week. He picks up the console, … Continue reading Oy
I purposely waited until today to write about this because I was hoping time would give me perspective. I'm not sure it has, but at least I'm not swallowing as much frustration and anger. I'm pretty sure everyone reading this knows that one of the things that most drives me insane about Jeff is his … Continue reading The Events of the Weekend
