Since Last Time…

june14 009I haven’t written a lot bc I haven’t been doing a lot.  This past week has either been crashing, or cleaning like crazy.  I am going to get to see Nicole tomorrow though!  I need to make a bag of all her stuff I have for her… my only goal for today is to do that, and shower!  Weee! lol.

june14 002After my last Humira shot, my Crohn’s has been very bad.  I always tend to fall near the end of when a medicine is supposed to start working, and I am noticing improvement in the sense that I don’t feel so nauseated all the time and weak… and then I do something, and it all comes rushing back lol.

june14 004I find it is also making my POTS symptoms worse… I think my heart rate is okay, but I feel a lot of the symptoms a lot easier, like being tired out easily when standing, and getting really dizzy.  So I’ll keep an eye out for it.  I want to do some research on Humira and see what some of the non common side effects are.  I just want it to work already!  I’m antsy and impatient! lol.

june16 012I don’t know if this has anything to do with my massage, but I pulled a big muscle in my neck, and my lower back area where she worked as well is in pain ALL OF THE TIME.  So I think until I can get myself more built up, I am going to hold off on getting anymore massages just in case!

jhv 001Next month, is my mom and Grams birthdays, and I now know what I want to get each of them.  I already have my sis’ for August, but my Grams moves then, so I’d like to get her a moving gifts, like a nice wreath or something for her front door.  Hard to find ones that aren’t seasonal though!

Alright, Zeus is beside me bathing, so I’m going to give him a brushing before he leaves me for a nap.

Ash,

Father’s Day Weekend

june14 007Not going to be able to see my dad tomorrow for Father’s Day.  I wish I could be there, but I think they’re out and about anyways.  I already gave him his three plants too and he said they are doing well in their newer garden bed.

I had Christine come on Thursday to do my Humira needles.  Only had to do two this time.  I thought I’d need her to do the first one, if not both, but once I got to it, I was fine to do it myself!  Yay!

june14 005Fifa World Champ. is on so I’ve been watching the games like mad.  I don’t like it enough to pay for the station to watch soccer throughout the year (I’m cheap like that lol)  so when it finally comes on at the end of Spring, I watch it like crazy to get my fill!

Yesterday, Nicki took me for my massage at the Wellness Center.  OMG  It was sooo nice!  I’ve never had one before, and it was so relaxing on my back.  I had the girl (Tammi who is kick ass)  work on my lower back where my Fibro.  kills me, and up around my shoulders and neck.  I felt like I had 20 lbs of stress taken off me!  I didn’t even realize how much it was affecting my body, since I hadn’t felt stressed, until after I got out of there.  Definitely want to go back!

beta 007I had helped mom with a little bit of painting at her place… not much since I can’t do dick all it seems, but I am doing little bits every time I go up there.  As a thank you, she got me a bright red Betta 🙂  I got a little tank from a friend Mary, and he is sitting up on my top shelf where I can see him.  I’m going to get the bulb replaced next month so it’s brighter, but I really like him!  And the tank isn’t too small, but small enough, that it will be easy for me to change!

Talk soon!

Ash,

Not So Noble…

I believe, whether it is an organization, a business, whatever it is, it should be done with proper business ethic.  Especially when it comes to dealing with the community, customers, etc.  I have found a rescue, that has deeply disappointed me, to the point where I have to share this story.  Sadly this isn’t the only person having problems with this dog rescue either.

I know a woman, who rescued a dog from Noble Dog Rescue.  Thankfully she has a wonderful home for animals, but no one came to check out her home to make sure it was a safe environment for the animal.  She also was given no information about how she would go about adopting the dog if she so chose to… which she did.  Also no contract to sign.

She has had the dog since before Christmas.  She has spent her own money on the dog’s food, and paid for him to be taken to the groomer, even though the company on their site, claims to pay for all of these things.

After not hearing anything from anyone since she first fostered the dog, she is told out of no where the dog is being taken from her, unless she pays $400 for the adoption fee.  She has already paid that and then some, by feeding and getting the animal groomed, with no help from the organization.  So she refused to pay the adoption price.

She was threatened that the police would come to her home, and take the dog away from her and her son who have grown so attached to this dog, and was horribly disrespectful.  The woman I know was smart, and went to the police herself to find out her rights, and also researched them online.  The woman from the organization said she had a signed contract (even though my friend does not remember ever signing anything) and refused to send a copy of it to my friend to prove that she had done so.

Finally after berating my friend and calling her a mean, disrespectful woman (which is not the case bc my friend read me the conversation from their texts to each other and it was the woman in the organization that was cruel, while my friend tried to stay assertive yet mature in the way she responded) the woman finally has decided to let my friend adopt the dog for half the price.  This was just after flat out refusing to let her having him even for full price just before that.

Another woman who fostered through the company and wanted to adopt, was told that all of the animals were spayed and neutered.  Shortly after receiving the dog.. she gave birth to a litter of puppies!  Then she was told, she would have to pay a fee of $400 for each puppy as well!

I understand no one is perfect, and problems do arise, but companies, organizations, businesses, are supposed to be consistent and on the ball with their clients, and this company is so beyond doing anything that they actually say they do, I would NEVER even only foster a dog through them.  It is so unbusiness like.  They should be ashamed of themselves, and get their act together before fostering or adopting anymore dogs.
