Pre-Thanksgiving Chatter

A game warden was driving down the road when he came upon a young boy carrying a wild turkey under his arm.

He stopped and asked the boy, “Where did you get that turkey?”

The boy replied, “What turkey?”

The game warden said, “That turkey you are carrying under your arm”.

The boy looks down and said, “well lookee here, a turkey done roosted under my arm!”

The game warden said, “Now look, you know turkey season is closed, so whatever you do to that turkey, I’m going to do to you”.

If you break his leg, I’m gonna break your leg. If you break his wing, I’ll break your arm. Whatever you do to him, I’ll do to you. So what are you gonna do with him?

The little boy said, “I guess I’ll just kiss his ass and let him go!”

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey be plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have never a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Its Beginning to Look alot like Christmas!

To get ahead of the game, and the weather, Jay and I put up all the outside decorations this past weekend. First we had to do our last fall cleanup and then started the unpacking of all the goodies. We checked each strand of lights, checked Mr. Frosty before assembling him, and made sure the spotlights were in place. Here is the first picture with them on. Yes... I said ON. ;)
Its a year where I think we should start early to help cheer people up and get them in the Christmas Spirit. More to come... so send the snow!!!

Lillianna Kaitlin (Lili Kat) - 11/11/2008 5:35

Sean and Heather are the new parents to a little baby girl Lillianna Kaitlin!!!!
Lili was born on Tuesday at around 5:30. Heather started experiencing some headaches and had a Dr appointment anyway, in which the doctor advised her it was time to deliver. Heather has been on maternity leave for the past 10 days already due to preeclampsia, same as she experienced when carrying Lexi. This time, they were prepared. The doctor had already started prepping Lili to grow her lungs faster as a just in case. Good thing they did.
Last I spoke to Sean, they were all doing well and are in Westchester Medical Center.
Once I have more details, I will fill everyone in.
Welcome to the world Lili Kat!

Vet Visit - All Day Event

Well, we went to the vet early yesterday morning to get KC checked out at 8:30.
Our normal vet unfortunately couldn't do any eye pressure testing that is standard on reviewing eye issues. But he advised us to see an optomologist down in Bedford Katonah (which is near Pepsi). I was to make an appointment ASAP. By then it was 9:30, and I needed to be there for a 10o'clock meeting. So I dropped KC off at home and went to work. In the meantime, the vet had already called the optomologist and made an appointment for 12:30. Great! Too bad I was already down here. So I left work at 11:00, drove back home, changed clothes, and drove all the way back. But it was worth it. Dr Mosunic is one of the best in the area. She really knows her stuff. So the evaluation is this : The left eye definitely has some extra pressure that is making the eye kind of buldge out. She gaves us steroid drops to help reduce the pressure. For just the right eye (which is the one that just went blind), she can't tell right now why he's blind. When she looks, there is a small cataract but it shouldn't be causing blindness, so she's afraid it could be pressure as well causing the optic nerve to stretch from the brain and isn't working appropriately or it could be SARDS (Sudden Acquired Retinal Degradation Syndrome), which they really have no explanation for blindness. It is really strange, as I met to other ladies at the vet center who recently went through the same thing with their dogs. So we are not alone. But, all in all, we are hoping the series of eye drops (3 in all), will help reduce the chance that this is permanent. Then it was back home to let KC rest as he's been on the go since 8, and it was now 2. I also had to go out and get all the medications, bringing it back to almost 3:30. Just in time for me to join a few meetings by phone. Phew... LONG DAY. But worth it. I just wish we could have seen this coming to prevent it. Lesson learned as Ace and Makita will now be tested frequently on thier vet visits. KC has another appointment today for blood work to analyze what is or is not effecting him. Tick born illnesses, any bacterial or viral infections, etc. KC will also go back in one week to see how his progress is with Dr Mosunic. Keep you posted and thanks for all the well wishes.

Sad Day

Saturday morning was like any other. Jay and I were up and doing our thing. The dogs were enjoying their breakfast. Around 3, we left to go to Lexi's Birthday party which you can view soon on her blog. We had a great time. When we returned home, everything still seemed normal. By 9pm, I sat down to have some ice cream, which usually means the dogs smothering me for a lick or two. But this time, only Ace and Makita followed. I looked over at KC, and he seemed to not even notice. Earlier in the summer, KC's left eye had gone blind due to cataract issues. There was nothing we could do. But today, as I got closer, I could see the start of this also in his right eye. As I got closer, he didn't react at all. When I touched his nose lightly, he was completely startled by it. KC has gone blind. It has broken Jay and my hearts to have this happen. Especially that quick. We have a vet appt early today to get him checked out and see if there's any hope. In the meantime, we have to coach him to go outside, down the steps, to re-learn how to step down, or step up, and make his way around the house by sound and touch. But all in all, he's still the same dog, now just has to have some extra patience. We'll keep you posted on the vet visit.

First National Spot

Its a happy day!! Jay just found out he got his first National TV spot as a voiceover. :)
Its a quick 4 second tag line for Wrangler Jeans George Strait collection. The commercial is still in production mode but we hope to see it within the next 1-2 months. We will keep everyone posted. We are so excited and I am so proud of him. I can't wait to see what he accomplishes next.

It's Official!

Barack Obama is president-elect of the United States, affirming that "change has come." Lets just hope he follows through on his plans and can bring positive changes to the economy, middle-east conflicts, health care, homeland security and to the GLBT community. If your kids ever ask if they can do something or be something, this is your mark in history that shows.... THEY CAN. Anything is possible.

Voting is our given right, which men have died to keep.
Voting shows our peoples might, so our country won't get into deep.
But there are those who never vote, and constantly seem to complain.
Patriotism they don't promote, and their rights they choose to abstain.
Every vote does really count, to let our officials know.
For their actions they must account, or their ratings will never grow.
So come next election time (TODAY), go cast your vote with pride,
Voting doesn't cost a dime, plus the out come you help decide.

4th Anniversary

It almost feels like yesterday that I picked up Jason to go on our first date. 4 Years ago today. Or in other terms, that's 48 months. That's my current lease! :) That's 1460 days... 87600 minutes... or 5,256,000 seconds. WOW. Now it feels like a long time.
But seriously, the days & months fly by. I don't know if its because our time has been split between different work shifts & half-shared weekends or not, but I'd like to think its because our relationship isn't hard.
Its not work. It luckily, just comes easy. The way it should be.
Yeah, we have our days that we disagree on something, but most of the time that lasts an hour or so and we move on. I am lucky I found him. I thank God he brought him into my life. He's my best friend who shares everything with me, the good the bad and the ugly. And Jason knows he's lucky to have found me. I can say that cause its true :) Love ya sweets!
