October 31st

Spoopy Halloween, friends! I didn't do anything particularly Halloween-y this year, but tomorrow I'm gonna get my hair done, which is scary, right? I'm just not enjoying the color since I keep saying "cool-toned, please!" and getting warm, even brassy hair. It's not worth the price I'm paying, either. So I'm switching things up!

Cas knocked his entire litter box over into the bathtub today. He's...not really loving the fact that he lives in the bathroom right now. I feel bad for him. Plus he can't clean himself so he's kinda stinky and matted. I trimmed a little of his fur myself but I might see if his vet can actually shave some more off. I did buy some waterless shampoo and cleaning wipes for him though, so he's a little better. His incision is healing well, at least!

October 30th

I hope you all had a good weekend! Brad and I stayed up super late playing Super Monkey Ball 2 and it was really fun. Then the levels got hard and we went to bed. As you do.

Cas is doing pretty well! I have to buy some of those kitty cleaning wipes for him because he's not able to clean himself with his cone on and he smells kinda funky. His shaved tummy is so cute though!

I'm on day two of no lorazepam at all and I'm managing okay! Usually day two or three is when things get wonky, and while I can tell that I'm a little more jumpy than usual, I'm hanging in there. Hopefully the rest of the week will go smoothly as well!

October 29th

Cas got to come home today! Just in time for National Cat Day! He has to wear the cone of shame for two weeks and he hates it, I feel so bad! He's all sleepy, too. 

Brad is playing Super Monkey Ball 2 blind! He's pretty good at it, I'm impressed!

October 28th

Today was such a day! I slept in so much and work was busy and then I had falafel! And now I'm very sleepy but will most likely become less sleepy and then stay up far too late...again...like last night.

I want to try squid ink pasta.

October 27th

Cas went back to the doctor today, and he'll be getting surgery tomorrow, specifically a perineal urethrostomy. I'm worried about him, but I also know he'll be okay. He's a tough little dude.

I just had really sudden, scary vertigo while Brad was here and now I just want to be calm but my anxiety-brain is freaking out. Luckily I don't work until 3:00 tomorrow and it's a short shift, so I can take it slow tonight.

Plus, I've got my goat.

October 26th

Last night was stressful, but today is going better. Cas' drugs have wonky side effects!

I am hungry though! What do I eat?

October 25th

My sweet kitty is back home at last! He looks so much better and I'm so happy. I have to monitor him for awhile and he has to eat special food from now on, but I'm really just glad he's doing well. He's shaved all funny, too! He's got little oven mitts!

October 24th

My shoulder and head still hurt a bunch. I feel like I haven't the biggest knot in my muscles and I'm getting pretty damn tempted to get a massage. Nothing fancy, but I'm really uncomfortable and I need some help.

It's lonely without Cas here. I miss him so much. He's doing okay but I just want him to come home so we can cuddle.

October 23rd

Cas is spending the night in the kitty hospital. He got all blocked up and he was in a bad way, but apparently he's feeling a little better now. I miss him a bunch. Plus I have a horrible headache from sleeping funny. I just wanna cuddle Cas and an ice pack and be cozy.

October 22nd

Today I got a hug from a tiny child in a dinosaur costume and also learned that an electric eel is not actually an eel!

Cas is having tummy troubles so I'm trying to keep him hydrated. Poor baby!

I LOVE MY GOAT SO MUCH

October 21st

I am a sleepy sheepy! Also, speaking of sheep, I GOAT MAIL. Yes indeed, Brad sent me a goat! I love my new goat! I named her Henrietta. She's a brown Nubian goat!

Whooooo's getting excited for MAGFest? THIS GIRL RIGHT HERE.

October 20th

Brad and I just watched Holes! That is such a damn good movie, truly. And one of the best book-to-movie adaptations I've ever seen.

I do miss Cas when I stay the night at Brad's, even if Cas sometimes gets needy at 5 AM. He's so cute though!

October 19th

I didn't even watch the debate tonight. I don't even want to hear Trump speak another word. I was also sleeping through most of it because I was really lethargic earlier. Now it's storming like crazy so I'm just being cozy. I might watch a movie tonight. No work tomorrow or Friday, so I have some down time!

October 18th

Hello friendos! I did a whole lot of nothing today, including completely forgetting that I was going to do laundry. Whoops. My work uniform should be okay for one more wear though...eek!

I am sleepy and I have the coziness kitty on my tummy. Bedtime sounds nice.

October 17th

Work was hard! My legs really hurt! So I'm gonna stay up late watching old Game Grumps videos. Watch out, Endless Ocean.

October 16th

Decreasing my lorazepam again really messed me up today. Good old anxiety and even some derealization. Fun times! Even now I feel really off. I don't like not feeling like myself.

Dear work: Please me easy tomorrow. I could use a gentle day while my body processes its chemical changes. I already have to get up way too early, so...go easy on me!

All things considered, at least Cas is looking especially poofy today.

Saturday, October 15, 2016

October 15th

Work was crazy today! My legs hurt so badly! And I'm sleepy! I'm gonna sleep in so hardcore tomorrow.

Having no money is stressful. Yipes.

October 14th

Pretty slow day today. But tomorrow is work, bright and early! I haven't gotten up for work this early since the hotel! Luckily it's not an eight hour shift, anyway. So, off to bed!

Sometimes you go to Sephora to return some things and leave with more stuff than you brought in. Whoops. But I tried the Tatcha silk moisturizer last night and it was absolutely incredible, so I figured I'd get the little discovery set. It gets great reviews, and I already know I love the moisturizer, so...you know. Then I bought some lipstick because I'm a bad person. A bad person with fabulous lipstick.

October 12th

Hi friends! My shift at work tomorrow got canceled so I don't know what to do! I have some things to return to Sephora so I guess...that?

Brad and I just watched The Prince of Egypt! God, that movie is so good. I got chills like 20 times. So beautiful!

An excerpt from my Facebok status from today...

In honor of National Coming Out Day...
As someone who has only dated men, I assumed this meant I had to label myself as straight. However, over the past year I have learned more about and explored my sexuality and identity, and I would like to officially come out and say that I am bisexual.
I have learned so many important things about bisexuality this year and I am so happy to be part of this community. 
Being in a relationship with a man does not make me any less bi. It is simply how things happened, and I am extremely happy in my relationship.
So, to all of my bisexual friends out there, please remember:
Your sexuality is valid even if....
- you’ve only been in relationships with someone of a different gender
- you’ve only been in relationships with someone of the same gender
- you’ve never had sex with a guy
- you’ve never had sex with a girl
- you’ve never had sex at all
- you’re heteroromantic
- you’re homoromantic
- you’re aromantic
- you find yourself preferring one gender over another

Your feelings are valid. Your sexuality is valid. Do not let people shame you or tell you otherwise.

October 10th

Well, phooey. I'm not sure if it's a coincidence or if I've got a little tummy bug, but my dinner tonight didn't sit well with me...again. My other meals today were fine but for whatever reason, not dinner. That was four hours ago and I just had some graham crackers with honey and peanut butter because I was feeling so hungry, and while I don't feel as bad as earlier, I'm still not feeling all the way great. I'm going to try and get some fresh produce and such from the store tomorrow and have a really healthy eating day and see if that sorts things out.

No real plans for tomorrow though so I'm just going to try and get some good rest, stay hydrated and cuddle with Cas.

October 9th

Work was pretty easy today, and Brad and I went for a really pleasant drive afterwards! Unfortunately I'm feeling a bit unwell now...I blame the Dippin' Dots I ate earlier. I love them, but sometimes they just don't agree with me.

I have tomorrow free! What should I do? Adventuuuures!

October 8th

Today was so nice! I got to sleep in, and aside from a bad dream I actually was pretty cozy all night, and slept really soundly! No headache! Brad's bed sorted me out. We watched the latest Bo Burnham special on Netflix last night and it was honestly kind of disappointed, but there were still some good bits.

So, the Renaissance Festival...was super cool. I'd never been to one before, but it was pretty much exactly what I expected. Lots of people selling cool stuff, lots of food, and lots of amazing costumes. I would love a costume of my own, but they're really expensive! But Brad bought me a really lovely circlet so I still felt fancy.

Oh, and I rode a freaking camel. He was so, so soft! I wish I could be his best friend!

October 7th

I'm having a fun evening with Brad! And tomorrow is the Ren Faire! I'm super excited, but also hope my ongoing headache will go away. I think I've been sleeping funny! I gotta get sorted out!

October 6th

Work was much easier today! No mugs!

My head is hurting and my face is itching! And it's warm in here! But I bought a cozy flannel today so all is well.

October 5th

Work was crazy today! I moved like, a hundred mugs! And hardware! Now I am extra sleepy and I ate too much Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I gotta get up early again tomorrow, but hopefully no more mug moving.

Tuesday, October 4, 2016

October 4th

My hair is so fabulous and blonde! I mean, it's been blonde. But now it's more blonde!

I saw some cutie raccoons tonight! I wish I could hang out with them. But I have to get up early tomorrow for work!

October 3rd

Got mah hurr did today! I have to go back tomorrow to get the roots re-toned, but it's not the end of the world. I think after that it'll look fucking amazing.

Cas has a piddle problem. He's starting peeing outside of his box, but only sometimes. And he doesn't pee on the carpet, he pees on...any fabric he can find. Or a box that I got in the mail. So they daybed, some clothes, a paper towel that fell under the table...I don't know what's going on but it's been happening for over a week now. I got him a second litter box and new litter so he's got more options, hopefully that will help. If not we gotta go to the vet and get him checked out!

October 2nd

Well, today didn't go as planned. Bit of a roller coaster really. Mostly petty stuff so I won't go into details (though I did get a hug from an adorable child), but no cat café. I'm bummed out, but I was more bummed out earlier which is why we didn't go in the first place.

I'm gonna watch Zootopia now since it's on Netflix, it looks good, and I feel like my job requires it.

Happy October! Brad and I are going to a cat café tomorrow! Yaaay!
