I do that. Occasionally.
A conversation I had on Facebook made me realize I’ve neglected updating in about a million years. Whiiiich of course I remembered, AFTER I had already given them a link to the site. That’s never embarrassing. We haven’t had any recent adventures here at Chez Lotta Pets, but then again, Mom of Lotta Pets hasn’t had a day off in a while. Well. That’s not true, I went to Disney for a week, but despite it being a vacation, still didn’t get to adventure with the pets. Which may have been a good thing, because as much as I adore all of them. I have days I need to not think about medication, chopping cucumbers or if there’s enough chewsticks in the house to keep Uno satisfied.
Summer camp started for my work two weeks ago, so I’ve been a little busy with that, getting into my schedule and trying to not to burn to a crisp every time we go to the pool, which is twice a week and several times for field trips over the next few weeks. Although it doesn’t require me to get up at 5am every morning now, I do have 8 hour days at the park, pool and whatever adventures the kids have planned for them, and I must admit it’s definitely exhausted me and put a bit of a damper on me doing anything of the things I normally do. I get off work in the afternoon tomorrow and I have Sunday off, so I’m hoping to be slightly more productive. Creatively, housework-idly and of course pet care-idly.
I’ve also been battling a sinus infection since Tuesday, it was ugly for a day, now I’m just trying to stop hacking near anyone I like.
It’s been warm around here, to the point of being yucky. and so has the room with all the animals. I have two fans going and most of the lights are off, but I don’t know if it’s helping. The Pigs have been flattened out like little piggy rugs to keep from sweltering, both Evie and Uno seem to have gone into summer hibernation and my tanks have warmed up enough I was greeted to an algae bloom in Winston’s tank. Turned off the heaters until I feel like they aren’t going to boil and I don’t have oddly colored algae crawling all over the glass.
I think the only ones that have been staying reasonably cool are the rabbits. The weathermen have been crying rain for the entire week and although it’s rained, sort of, it hasn’t been the thunderstorm special I was expecting. Plus with the heat, I was afraid they’d get overheated and I wouldn’t be home to prevent them from getting sick, so they’ve had to stay in their indoor hutch. I think it’s time to just get the outdoor hutch and figure out how to stabilize it from The Tank AKA Mystic doesn’t knock it over in her haste to see them. I want them to enjoy the outdoors without risking them getting hurt or overheated. Any of the hutches I’ve looked at have nesting boxes that a few frozen bottles of water won’t cool down.
Regardless of all this chatter, I should get to sleep. Still have to get up for work even if I have the afternoon off. Maybe I’ll end up being more consistent.
Who am I kidding?
P.S. I’m not sure when I’ll get the actual button, but I recently decided to participate in a little blog program in conjunction with a company called Ears of Experience. It’s a Travel Agency that I assume works fairly independently sending people to Disney, which, as you know, is one of the greatest places in the world in my opinion. If you decide to go on a trip, you can get their information from me, just let them know I referred you and it looks like we both benefit. The TA I set this up with is an independent contractor and her little business is called Wonders Dreams and Wishes. I have her card if you need it, just let me know!
