Snowmobile Trip

One of Ryan's favorite things to do is to snowmobile. We didn't get to go last year, so this year we booked a trip. We invited family and friends to come, and we set a date. It's very nice because it gives us something to look forward to in December, besides Christmas, that is. The date is December 29, the last Saturday in December. My 2 sisters and their husbands are coming, along with Ryan's twin brother, Devin. I've been snowmobiling twice before, and it is a lot of fun. We're going to Beaver Creek Lodge, up Logan Canyon. Here's hoping for snow!

Fun toy

Our little one loves this toy we bought. It hangs on the door frame with a little mouse suspended on the end. The cat has been playing with it all day, and he's making me laugh. Just thought I'd share his joy with you.

The New Cats

After our kitties died, the Human Society gave us some exchanges good for 6 months. Ryan wanted to get new ones right away to help fill the void, but I was just worried the same thing would happen to other ones. After spending a day bleaching and sanitizing the whole house, we went back Monday night and got two more cats. We steered clear of kitties, because they're so susceptible, but cat's 1 and older should be fine because they've had all their shots. I found one I liked, but none of the other cats got along with it, so we decided we'd have to get two siblings again. We found 2 that would actually come to us and seemed loving, so we got them. They wouldn't come out from under the bed for one night, but since then, they are fine. We love them very much and are enjoying their sweetness and cuddles.

How can men and women communicate better with each other?

I came across this article. I'm sure we can all use some pointers!

My New Job

I finally left the Post Office. I really didn't want to work 72 hours a week during the Holidays again. I found a job just down the street from our new place, and I just finished training. It's at an online foreignexchange broker called Interbank FX. It's an office job, which I wanted, and NORMAL HOURS!! Crazy, I know. I don't think I've ever had a day job in my life. THe sad part is Ryan still works nights. By the time he gets home I'm just going to bed. I really hate that part. He's a supervisor now, so he's back down to the bottom of the bid list. Hopefuly he'll be able to work days sometime. So here I am, alone all weekend....someone help!

Feline Distemper

When Ryan and I adopted our kittens we had to sign a document that informed us of Feline Distemper which is quite common right now. Some of the symptoms are: lethargy, loss of apetite, vomiting, diarrhea...etc. After work yesterday i noticed how they would just lie down all evening. Which is very strange for kittens. I thought they were just tired or something. The little white kitten, I noticed, would end up in different parts of the house lying down, like it couldn't sleep. I noticed that it would just lay by the water dish with his head hanging over, but not drink. I found him lying in the litter box. I thought he was just very tired, and zonked off inside the litter. Ryan came home shortly after that and I showed him. He nudged him trying to wake him up and he didn't move. At this point, I started to worry. He tried to stand him up on his legs, but he wouldn't. He literally had no energy, and it was then that I realized all the cute things I thought he was doing were deadly. We immediately called the vet because I realized that it might have this feline distemper virus. A couple minutes into the phone call the cat twitched, then took his last breath. I have never seen something more sad in my life. I started bawling. The vet said we could either throw him away or take him in and have him cremated. Of course, I didn't want to throw him away, so we went to the vet. We took the black cat too, because now, we're assuming it's affected as well. After a lot of heartache and tests, the cat was indeed infected. We had a couple options. We could either try and heal him, which the vet said hardly any cats survive, and was very expensive, take him home, or have him put down. At this point we could tell he'd already gotten worse, and the likeliness of him surviving was grim. After a long cry and goodbye we gave him to the vet and left.

I can't believe how attached I got to animals we barely had for one day. It's so sad.

Our little ones.....

Ryan and I have been wanting to get a cat for a long time. In our old place we had to pay more, so we decided to wait until we moved. On our date last night we went to the Humane Society of Utah. I hate going there because it makes me so sad. Animals shouldn't be locked up like that. They would all just look so sad! I decided that we'd better do some good and get two. We didn't want to separate any litter, so we got these two gems. We're not sure what to name them yet. Any suggestions? The white one is so much smaller than the black, although they told us they're from the same litter. They're about 14 weeks old, and so lovable, just what we wanted. They're so much fun! They insisted sleeping in our bed last night, and kept Ryan up most the night wanting to be petted. We love our babies!

Happy One Year Anniversary!

Ryan and I had our 1st anniversary yesterday. We've been so busy with our move that it just snuck right up on us. We didn't plan anything, but Ryan just really wanted to go eat some Cafe Rio. Luckily, there's one just down the street from us. We got it to go and enjoyed our evening home together. This year has gone by so fast! It's cool to reminise about all the things we've done so far together. We've both learned so much about each other and ourselves. I love you Ryan!!! Here's a year in review:


Seven Things About Me
