Apple Snail Eggs GALORE!

augsblog 005I was able to take my Humira Friday, so thankfully just a day late.  I still have a cough, but finally feel like I am getting better.

Went with Holly today and got my groceries.  FOOD>>>YAY!

Right after she dropped me off, my mom and Grams picked me up.  Went to find this certain gift I want to get for Nick and the damn store was out of the color I needed!  Hopefully they will get more in!

We also went to the pet store.  I was peeking at my apple snail eggs when I got home and noticed up on the hood of the aquarium there were two more batches!  So I took the lid right off just now and boy was I wrong.  There are at least 5 other batches besides the two new ones and the one I already had!  Good thing I got some more blood worms from the pet store!

augsblog 016I also got a really cute couple of things, to harass the guinea pigs with lol.

My mom’s dog Niles has been staying with me a lot lately.  Normally he brings Zeus his cat toys to play and Zeus gives him the look of death, the Niles tries to sniff his bum and Zeus meows and runs away.  Now he cries for Niles at the window when we go out to take him for a pee.  I even caught them sleeping together!  Niles lives with my mom’s two cats August and Addy, and they are NOT afraid of him, and will give him a good swat if he tries to play with them, but now I think he realizes and Zeus, that they won’t hurt each other, Zeus just doesn’t play… he naps like an old cat lol.

augsblog 014I borrowed a book from Adam, when him and Nicole were visiting last, Flowers for Algernon.  My mom said she read it yrs ago, and had seen the movie.  Not too sure what I think of it yet.  It does seem to be getting better.  Basically you’re seeing things from Charlie (the lead character)’s point of view through his progress reports.  He undergoes an operation to make him very smart, after the initial trial was ran on a lab rat named Algernon… so  it’s an interesting idea for a book.  Might try to find the movie when I’m done to watch.

Now that I’m home, I am just waiting for my medicine to be delivered, and getting the girl’s cages, and Zeus’ litter box all dumped and cleaned.  Tomorrow I want to work on the aquarium, since it will be close to that time anyway.  The water receded just enough to drive me nuts and have me convinced that the tank is constantly leaking lol.

Okay, talk soon!



No Humira!

dad's yardsale 001I was supposed to take my Humira today, but I caught a nasty chest cold and can’t risk it making me sicker until I hopefully get a hold of my G. I. tomorrow.  So frustrating when I am trying to get better!  Thankfully the cold didn’t end up being bronchitis where I need an antibiotic, just viral, but my God this thing is fighting me like crazy!  Just pumping the inhaler and Advil to me until it gets better.  

Amanda had her birthday on Friday.  She liked her gift I got her (framed Charlie Hunnam photo from his younger yrs).  We had a yummy yummy dinner at their place.  I’ve been craving Carrie’s potato salad ever since!

My youngest niece finally had Carter my beautiful, perfect great nephew 🙂  Amanda and mom got to meet him, but unfortunately I haven’t yet since I was getting tests done they day she had him, and since I have been sick.  I can’t wait to cuddle and smooch him!!!

dad's yardsale 002My friend Nicole and her man Adam came over to visit.  She’s an amazing artist.  During the time we’ve gotten to become closer friends (used to go to high school together)  she’s finished two paintings.  She brought me prints of them which are AMAZING!  I can’t wait to find the perfect frame for them to hang them up!

Also while they were here, we discovered my apple snails she got me had laid eggs!  The best website for info. on apple snails NEVER seems to load, but I finally found out today that it takes 2-5 weeks for the eggs to hatch.  That was on the 12th… so not quite two weeks yet.  I’m soooo excited! lol.  

Okay going to go take my inhaler again so I can stop breaking my ribs from coughing so much!  


PS  Zeus has either been an absolute DICK during my time sick, chasing me screaming, or a little cuddly handsome staying close, but not right on me.  I just feel bad for the guinea pigs bc I don’t want to get them sick, so I’m only able to coo at them and not handle them unless cleaning them up. BOO 😦  Miss my furry girl’s cuddles!)

Hmmm This is New

They changed the way you write a post… way too fancy for my liking.

nile14 005The GI was good yesterday!  He wants to wait to see me until the end of September, bc I had taken so long for the Humira to start working in me, to see what happens.  If I still feel sick after a week of taking it, he will apply for me to get the needles every week instead of every other.  That I like 🙂  

Susan is going to be taking me to see my Neurologist in September too.  Which is awesome considering how bad my POTS like symptoms have been.  I know… or I think I know that my heart rate and blood pressure are still stable… yet I still have all the symptoms!  I don’t think this illness can ever be fully put in remission!

nile14 008I met up with Blake, the guy who sold me my aquarium, and he is getting out of the hobby, so I got a 25 ft.  Python aquarium vacuum from him.  It didn’t fit my taps, so I used my swagbucks and got a tap  adapter which I’ll have to pick up from the post office tonight. I literally had decided that I was going to have to get rid of my tank.  I adore my fish, but I’m just not well enough for the maintenance, but hopefully with the Python, it will make  it more doable.

Grams got moved last Friday.  I was sicker than a dog so Amanda came over and helped me clean the girls cage and do the dishes for me.  All I seem to want to do lately is sleep.  Thank God for helpful friends and family!

Will write more soon.
