Well it has been a while since I have updated hasn’t it?

I have had the last 4 days off. Friday 11/11/11 was a federal holiday and so I took Turs off as well to make it a mini vacation. I had plans of getting a lot of things done, but didn’t get anything done at all. The rest was nice, but I needed to work on the house.

I just now found out that there is a MYtouch slide 4g. It has been out since July. I am behind the times. Fucking T-Mobile wants cash upfront, and no more partial months shit. Fuckers. So I need to come up with $275 for the phone.

Anyway. Things have started to get really cold here in Oklahoma. I don’t know how I am going to survive when it gets colder and starts to snow.

Oklahoma has been having a lot of earthquakes recently. It is really weird. I have never experienced an earthquake before and never heard of Oklahoma having any either. There was a 5.6 that I felt a week or so ago. I can mark that off my bucket list I guess. I have seen tornadoes, been through hurricaines, blizzards, ice storms, hail storms, 50+ days of 100+ degree tempatures and no rain, and earthquakes.

The kitties are getting along better and better. They have been playing with each other a lot lately, chasing each other around and stuff. Soon they will be best friends. I ahve been working on the toilet training with them. I am in the final stages of it. I have a metal pan in the toilet and have been working on getting them to use it in there. There have been a few times where it hasn’t been in the pan, but I think they are starting to warm up to it. I bought some litter that is suppsoed to be good for training kitties, called cat attract and once I know they are using the pan 100% I will replace it with the septic safe stuff and then start the process of slowly opening a hole in the pan until they are used to sitting on the seat. This has been the dificult process thus far because the pan and area is so small and one of them doesnt ‘understand it fully yet. They are such sweeties and so gentle. They are still a bit skiddish though. That will take some time though I think.

The other day Tammy and I went to the cake wrecks book signing thing. It was fun. I think that Tammy enjoyed it and was suprised at some of the cakes. She hasn’t been to the site yet, so all the cakes were new to her. It got her out of the house and stuff. We also went to the Whole Paycheck as well and I wish it wasn’t so far away because I would be going there instead of the Norman places if I could for my groceries. They have a much bigger selection and they have a deli as well. I wish that Natural Grocers put in a deli. It makes me sad that they didn’t.

Okkkk. So a lot has happened over the last week.

Jewel was in Oklahoma for a funeral of one of her uncles and I took off Sun and Mon to spend itme with her and be with her at the funeral. It was really nice seeing her again and being able to spend time with her even if the occasion was a somber one.

On Sunday after we did the casket viewing thing we went over to the animal shelter. Jewel wanted me to get a little dog for me. I didn’t find any that I liked or thought would fit, so we headed over to the cats and after spending a lot of time there I ended up getting two cats. One is white with brown markings named Ripley, and one is black with white markings named Belladonna. I need to post pictures of them which I will soon. I haven’t been able to get good pictures of them because they don’t understand the word pose. They are really beautiful sweet cats. I think they are going to be good for me and help me with some things. I hope we all get along and stuff.
On Monday was the actual funeral, after the funeral we went to Goprum and had a really good meal. The food was yummy. I am glad that I took the time off for the funeral because I think Jewel really needed me and I was there for her. Her family is not supportive/understanding of her veganism and the fact she saves chickens from death and mistreatment. Pretty typical attitudes for this part of the country for sure.
Tuesday I spent the day relaxing and bonding with the kitties. I also did some cleaning and straightening of the house, something I need to really get done quick with new tenants. Yesterday was a bad day for the kitties. We went to the vet to get checked up and Ripley did not like getting her temperature checked at all. Belladonna has ear mites I have medicine for and they both have a virus from being in the shelter, the OKC shelter crud as the vet put it, which is pretty typical with humans too, so I got some medicine for that too.

Today I was awoken early by dad to go to one of his friends business, one of those extortionware got installed on his assistants computers, and I had to work on getting that removed, I had to leave with the scan still being done, and so I have to go back tomorrow to fix. Also now that I know what it is, when I get home I am going to have another plan of attack in case the bootable av sw I ran didn’t fix. It sucks being away from the kitties, and sidestepping the plans I had for today, but at least I will have a little extra money to have since I need to do an oil change and a couple of other things soon.

Anyway I am tired and ready for bed now. I know I have to go home and do some work before returning tomorrow and doing it all over again.
