My Cat...

is going to either put me in the poor house or make MY hair fall out. He has started licking himself so much that he is removing the fur in large spots and then continuing to lick until he has raw, open sores We have changed NOTHING in his environment.... he has just became OCD about his constant licking.

We've taken him to the vet and he suggested triple antibiotic ointment... which apparently is ecstacy for cats b/c he won't quit licking it off.

We bought and made him wear a t-shirt. He stopped licking his neck and made a new sore on each knee. WTF?

My mom is sewing him a pantsuit, lmao... hoping to cover the sores till they heal. Right now he has on an Elizabethan collar and it's working on parts, but not all of his sores. We're going to have to get a bigger one. If the collar doesn't work and I don't see marked improvement this week, he's going to the pound. JUST KIDDING... but I will be taking him back to the vet.

Anyone have any other suggestions?? Seriously, I'm going to have a cat in a turtle neck, long sleeved, onesie pantsuit next week if necessary.

Ice, Ice, Baby.

Yep, my driveway is a solid sheet of ice. I came within an inch of busting my ass of the driveway when I went to get the mail. I'm pretty sure that my free sample of organic cat treats wouldn't have been worth breaking my arm. I'm hoping that I don't have to leave the house until it's actually ice-free.

Then again, I'll probably have to go to work when it's still icy, b/c ice is safer than snow, right?? I mean, you can actually SEE the snow. That makes it scary:)

If it gets bad, I'll take pics of it. We're expecting more than 1/2 inch of accumulation. YIKES!

Back to the grind...

and unfortunately, it's not the bump n' grind kind;) I have let a friend talk me into gyming it at 5a.m. Nope, it's not natural to be sweaty before daylight, but dammit... I need to lose more weight. GRRR! As usual, I have gotten into the happily, fattily, lazily married stage now that B is back home. He has, too... so he plans to run to lose his weight. Yep, one week of running, B will drop his winter fat. 6 weeks of 5 a.m. "body pump" and I will be down 10 lbs, if I'm lucky.

I hope that all of my children are boys so they can be called "stocky", "athletic", hell, even "husky" is better than fat, or my fav: Morbidly Obese. That's such a nice term. So, I'm not storing chicken wings in my bra, but still... I hope to have room to do so here soon!

Goal #1: gym each day through Friday without complaining too terribly much.
Goal #2: Go from there:-D (I'm eyeballing water aerobics)

Good to go!

All went well with my surgery f/u. Doctor says we can start TTC again as soon as my body decides to get back in the game. They said to call if I'm still waiting for my new cycle in three weeks.... ummm, they forgot that I have provera, so I'm planning to start that at the end of January, so that we can conceive a Valentine's Day baby.

Yes, I'm THAT positive today;)

and for those that have followed my story up till now, I got NO answers as to why things turned out the way they did:(

Next time, I'm going to get only good news from day one.

Is my surgery follow-up. Let me just say, if you hear a loud scream, and uncontrollable fit at about 3:30p.m CST, chances are that my DR has told me that they want me to sit it out for the month of Feb. That is not acceptable. We have guaranteed meds coverage until May. That is waayyy too close for comfort. I refuse to give up a month of covered meds.

Anyone have an extra dildo cam lying around that I can rent;) I'm pretty sure I could do injects monitoring without assistance at this point!

Jack Daniels is good. He is a man that knows how to flavor his booze. I am curently enjoying one too many down home punch beverages. I'm finally in a truly good mood for the first time in 2009. Alcoholism isn't looking too bad right about now.

I'm just sayin... Happy weekend, Peeps!

I have sucked BIG time at updates lately. NO good excuse other than life. I'm taking a few big breaths and hoping that the new year brings us joy and less heartache than 2008.

The end of the year was extremely tough for us.... death of loved ones and unfufilled dreams of a living baby never makes it easy to get out of bed. Even so, my tired ass has to go to work so that Barry and I aren't living in a van down by the river. Sadly enough, we'd have even less room, b/c it would have to be living in a Honda Accord down by the low water bridge.

Let's see... I did make some New Year's Resolutions. Didn't we all?

#1. Update my blog more often:)
#2. Continue with the gym and losing weight.
#3. Gain weight while pregnant with a healthy minime or minib.

Hopefully #2 and #3 will cancel each other out.

Oh yeah, I have officially lost my mind. I've decided to possibly get a booth at the local craft fair in May. My mother is making handmade baby items, and I'm helping her and making some decorative wreaths. Barry's is LOVING the craft area... which is actually our dining room table... hot glue strings anyone???
