Hiya? Just came back from teaching dance a little while ago...Well, I only really technically teach two classes (a mid to intermediate level ballet class and the pointe class both with the same instructor acting as the "main teacher" but he really only coreographs their dances) and assist the rest. It's a good break from the science stuff even though I'm usually found in corners studying between classes.

Stephanie- They don't call us patients for a reason! I understand that doctors are busy (and labs are busy too) but the waiting is killer!

Kelly- Hope the classes you're teaching went well!

Here's the rest of my mom's birthday gift...the box in the owl one does open but I'm not sure what (if anything) I should put in it...

Ashley, please don't get upset with me for not commenting, but I just don't have a clue what to say on halloween stuff since it is not something I celebrate. I'm glad you are enjoying dancing!

Kelly, yay for getting back into dancing! I bet you are great.

The only reason the 3 weeks bothers me is because of my deductible, ins renews 11/1 and I can't afford another 500 deductible. I'd like to get what I can done this month. So far, the antibiotics aren't helping, but it has only been 3 days. The antibiotics are for 2 weeks, if they aren't gone, I may call the doc and explain my situation and see if he can't do something a little faster.

Stephanie- I totally understand and I remembered you don't celebrate Halloween so it's all good! Still, if you have any ideas on what (if anything) I can put in that box I'd appreciate it! It doesn't have to be Halloween related at all...it's just that giving her something with an empty box kinda seems a bit...like meh.

We spent most of the weekend at my mom's house. She seriously needs to get a new computer. I couldn't even bring the laptop as she doensn't have wireless and I didn't feel like crawling under her desk to hook it up.

I have a serious addiction to netflix right now. We just signed up a couple weeks ago and I'm already on season 3 of Grey's Anatomy.

Happy Sunday!

Becky, My Fitness Pal is what I was thinking of. We went through a Netflix addiciton for a while, too. We stopped when they had their big fiasco a year or two ago.

Stetz, I would definitely call the doctor and explain the situation. Hopefully the doc can work with you.

Ashley, does your mom like lotions and soaps? Sometimes you can find sample size ones that you could put in the box (on a bed of tissue paper). Maybe throw in some chapstick or sunscreen?

Alissa, LOL on the cranky pants. I wore mine for the last two days, too.

We had another fun adventure this weekend. At least the adventure part was fun, but the rest was a train wreck. We went to Reno overnight. We hung out at the casino and took in a comedy show. On Saturday we went to nearby Virginia City (an authentic old west silver-mining town) for the Outhouse Races. People created outhouses and raced them. It was hysterical! When we left, the PeePee Hut and the Pot Rod were winning They race again today. We saw the parade, a few races, and then hit up the town sites. Now for the train wreck.....we get a call Friday night from DD. In a nutshell, our Tortie Kitty is sick again. She's peeing blood and spotting, is listless and non responsive. Keep in mind that the last 2 (listless and non responsive) are often typical cat traits. So, we make arrangements for DD to take Kitty to the emergency vet. A few hours later and several $$$, all if fine. Tests are normal, cat is just dehydrated. Crisis averted. We thought. Saturday, we get a call, "Mom.....it was the WRONG CAT" Boo is the one bleeding Are you kidding me????? OMG. DD is half-panicking, but DS1 is now home and says other than spotting (a lot of spotting, however), Boo is fine. It made for a stressful getaway. We got home, the Tortie looks peeved at us, but also well-hydrated, lol! Seriously, she has been sick and she really looks very well now. Boo is a bit cranky, but otherwise seems ok. I think the spotting has stopped. I'll call the vet tomorrow. Thank God we authorized the $$$ to run tests on the Tortie. It would have been devasting had we said "no" because she is 15 and has been ill. I hope this teaches DD to not let emotions get in the way of a thorough investigation job next time.

Hiya? Icky rainy day here...we were supposed to go out looking for things for Halloween costumes (my mom wants to be a classy witch and I want to be the 11th Doctor from "Doctor Who") but my sister's home and she didn't want to do ANYTHING so we're all stuck in the house since my mom doesn't want to do anything without my sister's approval. I'll probably go study or something in a bit so I don't feel like I'm wasting my day.

Becky- Until Netflix started getting all froggy on my iPad, I had a serious Netflix issue...I watched (thinks) "Sherlock" from the BBC, "Doctor Who," "Merlin," "Firefly," "The Dresden Files," and "Robin Hood" from the BBC all on Netflix from start to finish for each series.

Jen- That's a wicked awesome idea! Maybe I'll do that! Sorry about the kitty craziness!

Alissa- Sorry about the cranky pants! Hope you're feeling better today!

Only a little? That's a whole lot of nuts.

DD came home and showed me the ER vet information. The final cost was $190 less than the estimate, and they did find blood in her urinalysis, so all in all, not a wasted trip or cost. But still....

I saw a funny Halloween costume this weekend. An orange jumpsuit with "inmate" written on the back. I thought that would be funny to wear around my office. I think, though, my next costume purchase will be something "Old Western-y." there were a lot of people dressed up yesterday. It would have been fun to dress up, too.

I have the day off today! DS is going to school with DH so I'll be all alone

I made those lemon bars last night. Ashley, I think you asked if they're sour? I would say they are tart and sweet. DS thinks I'm the greatest. mommy. ever. And I just feel real fabulous when I can make something from scratch

That is crazy Jen. I'm glad to hear they are both good. A little cat drama at our house too. So remember how our momma cat got hit by a car. The kids still don't even realize it. Well I thought we just had the one boy left and that was fine. Then one of his sisters started showing back up again she hasn't been around in like 6 months so she we assume she was living at the neighbor's house. That's fine but then yesterday 3 kittens show up. So now instead of one cat we have 5.

Hi girls. sat dh worked overtime. good for the check boring for us. Sun we went to twin falls. I found a couple pairs of jeans ans got dd a cute outfit. I didnt buy any school clothes this year since we were moving. We have managed to find a few things every trip. I got ink for my printer. Im not used to not being able to run into town for ink without driving an hour and a half. We went to costco and made it home with time to head into the hills to go shooting. we bought clay pigeons which was fun for thr kids.

Becky five cats wow. they are all outside cats right?

Jen sounds like a great weekend except for the vet bills. It sounds like it worked out well for the cats anyway.

Alissa I have had a case of the crankys too. I have to say living in this tiny cabin doesn't help.

We love netflix. we stream thru the wii or ps3. dh has a box for streaming here. we dont have any other tv. cable is to expensive for the crud thats always on.

Good morning.

Ashley, I like Jen's idea too. I'd just go with that. I did comment on the owl...he was cute.

Jen...sounds like a fun weekend for sure! Too bad on the cats...I HATE spending money at the vet...but sometimes it is necessary! I'm so glad both of your cats seem to be doing better though!! That port-a-potty racing would be hillarious!

Alissa...hope you're less cranky now. Anything specific or just life?

Becky...I hope you like cats! LOL One good thing, they will probably not miss the dead cat due to 3 new baby kittens...one for each of them to hold! Kind of a nice distraction...if you don't mind the extra cats.

Andrea...that would be a long drive to shop. Will your new house be closer to shops? Anything new on the house front?

I can't use netflix at home b/c my internet connection is too slow to stream...we're barely within the limit of getting DSL, so we're stuck with a tad slower connection, but it is not nearly as slow as satellite...only really slow when your trying to download a big file.

Yesterday we had fun at our church's fall fest. My mom, sister and BIL all came to church then the fall fest. They have food, pony rides, bouncy toys, family tug of war, clowns w/balloon animals, tasting booth, music, and hay ride. It was fun. Especially for Elias. I am planning a fall fest at my house, a friend asked to use my house b/c hers wouldn't really work and I agreed. We're going to do a bonfire and hayride and roast hotdogs/marshmallows and have chili. She wanted it to be halloween/fall themed, but I told her we didn't participate in Halloween, so she said well then it can just be fall

Stetz sounds like a fun church fall festival. Your party sounds fun too. When I was little we didnt celebrate Halloween so we always went to the church fall festival. It sounds like your church goes all out.

No the new house is not closer to stores. We have an albertsons and another grocery store. Its fine for small things but I couldn't afford to buy everything here. This was one of the hard decisions about moving here. When I was growing up we lived in a town very similar to this. Lots of tourists and small shops.

Yes the cats are outside. I don't really mind them. They don't seem real friendly yet.

The fall party at your house sounds fun. I'd love to start having parties like that at our house when the kids get a bit older. But I'd be all for some Halloween stuff too.

We host a Halloween party at our house every year. Our friends bring their kids over, socialize and enjoy refreshments. Then, we go trick or treating as a group. It's the first time I see most of my friends since the summer.

Jen, your weekend sounded fabulous up to the kitty got sick. Poor baby. Hope they are both doing well today.

Alissa, hope you are enjoying your day off.

Stetz, your fall party sounds fabulous. I miss bonfires.

Ugh, I think my upstairs A/C is broke again. I have it on 79 and it's 81 up here. I work nearly every day until I leave for vacation. Why of why, couldn't it have waited until I got back????
