It's Christmas and I keep trying to wrap my head around how the hell that happened. Another year almost done and a new one about to begin. It's scary how fast it comes and goes.

I'm a very lucky person despite all the heartache and depression I have to try and deal with on a day to day basis. I'm in relatively good health, my family is in good health; I have a roof over my head and food to eat on a daily basis. A lot of people around the world don't have that and all I can do right now is just hope that one day something will change for them and pray. I don't know how well that will work, but you have to have hope.

I had a great accomplishment this year; I graduated from high school after years of struggling with it. It's a big weight off my mind and I can now move forward and hopefully get into the program I want to at college.

Like any other year it's had it's ups and downs. This year has been particularly hard on me because I've lost a lot. In February we got news from our former upstairs neighbour that George had passed away. While she lived here George hanged out with us while she was at work and he was such a darling cat. It turns out George was sick from birth (the vets weren't sure with what) and he just wasn't meant to stay here very long. I know he had a great life and was very well loved.

The first huge blow was that I lost my girl, Coda in April. That whole week leading up to us putting her down was just hell, because deep down I knew that she wasn't doing well and it wasn't fair to keep her suffering. It was a heart wrenching decision that we had to make, but it was necessary. I know now she isn't in any pain and is doing well. It was just her time. I love you and I know you're alright.

This past July my other baby, Eowyn went missing. While I know it doesn't look good, I still have to hold out hope for something to happen. I just cannot accept that she may really be gone, it hurts my heart too much to think that. She is my first kitten I ever got and she is a crazy one. But I think all cats are crazy. :P Wherever you are I hope you are well and happy.

And just recently in November Sebastian has now gone missing. Even though he was never technically my cat, he still feels like part of the family. He basically moved in to our place since his mommy moved in next door almost two years ago. I hope he's alright and that he's just gone for a ride (he likes to get in people's cars). The first summer he came to live here he went missing for a month because he hitched a ride in a car and then wandered around a neighbourhood about 10 miles away. Luckily he was fine and someone recognized him from the local paper and he came home. I'm still holding out hope that this is the case again.

Despite my losses in kitties this year there are also some gains. In May [livejournal.com profile] gremmie_goo and I went down to the local shelter to look at kitties and I ended up with a Tinkerbell. Leann had sent me her link on Pet Finder a few weeks before hand and she was still there when we went to visit. When I saw her it just felt right and the rest is history. But there was something I didn't expect when I went to the shelter, I fell in love with two kitties. One they said wouldn't be good in a multiple cat home because he had to be King, so Leann and I plotted to adopt this cat for my dad who was moving into a new apartment in the middle of June. I knew I had to have this cat in my life as well as Tinkerbell, but I don't think we could handle three kitties (well four if you count Sebastian). Long story short the plan backfired and dad adamantly didn't want a kitty, in some ways I get and respect his choice. The loss of Jackson was a hard blow to him and it'll take time before he's ready. With the adoption already approved and paid for all that was left to go get the guy. I was hesitant at first, because I've never had more than two cats my whole life and the prospect of three was a bit daunting, but surprisingly (after a hospital visit and a week off of work for my mum) it all worked out and Moe is now a big (physically and mentally) part of our lives. I honestly couldn't see my life without him. The Gods work in odd ways, but I was obviously meant to have this cat.

This past year I met a great many new friends here on LJ through fandom and other means and I'm greatful for that. I wish all of you the best for the holiday and the coming new year. You all deserve the best and brightest. I wish I could give everyone a present or hugs, but unfortunately it's not really in my budget (being a Barista doesn't pay well, trust me LOL). I've grown closer to some of you over the past year and some have left. You know who you are and I won't say anything except that I hope you're well and happy. Even though fandom can get a bad rap sometimes it really is a remarkable thing how it can bring us together and how we can make true friends in unlikely places. I love you guys!

This Christmas won't be a huge one or a flashy one, but I'm happy with it all the same. I actually get to spend some of Christmas day with my dad which is nice because he got a later shift at his job for that day, so I get Christmas morning with my mum and dad and then mum and I are off to my aunts for Christmas dinner. Boxing day we're having brunch with my other aunt, uncle and cousins from Victoria. I haven't seen my cousins in years, so that'll be fun.

If you don't bother reading this whole entry then that's ok, I just had to get some of it out there. I hope you all have a Merry Christmas, you all deserve it!


This'll be the 5th Christmas using this banner. :D

I've been a bit sad the past few days, money, stress, you know, the usual. But today also marks three months since Eowyn went missing. I kinda am at a loss of what to do; we've put fliers up, ads in the newspaper, been to the shelters and checked with the vets and all that and nothing. I'm still not going to give up, stranger things have happened, it's just hard as time keeps moving forward and you don't have any news.

I also went to my doctors )

The book store is putting up all their Christmas stuff, while I was walking out of the store they had some of crafts and ornaments on a shelf and some po pourri which smelled like Christmas trees. Oh, it was so good, I just wanted to stand there and inhale.

Hiro seems to be fitting in well although Moe and Tinkerbell can't quite figure out why they can't touch him. Moe was batting at the side of the tank yesterday. *facepalm*

I bought an elephant today.

Balls.

bunnylove: (Heroes - Noooooooooooo!)
Today I got 4 phone calls regarding Eowyn. Good news, right? Not. I put another ad in the paper and I apparently screwed up and put it in the 'for sell' section, so people think I'm selling a cat. Luckily when I phoned the paper to tell them this they said they'd switch categories, but since it was my fault I couldn't get a credit for the ad. Oh, well, at least the mistake was caught early.'

I cannot believe it's October, that is seriously scary, where the hell did September go? I love October so much, it's one of my favourite months. I even went outside and it smelled like October (I'm such an autumn geek). I love this time of year.

Heroes tonight!!! In celebration here are some half naked Peter pics from tonight's eppy: Read more... )

On another Heroes note, does anyone know where I could download get a copy of the Paley Film Festival of the cast that was included with the US DVD's?

fuck.

In regards to my last post. My neighbour (Sebastian's mum) just stopped by to pick up Sebastian and said that she got a call from Ozzy's parents. It's not good. Turns out there are coyotes around and unfortunately Ozzy has succumb to them. One of their neighbours called them and said they found... I won't say it, but yeah, it really doesn't look good.

I'm still not giving up, but I do know (and have always known) that there may be an unhappy outcome to this whole situation. It's a risk you take with having an outdoor cat. If she is gone I just wish I knew so I could mourn and scream and curse things. It's the not knowing that is killing me. The 'what if's' and all that. I still may get her back, there's still hope.

I've locked up Tinkerbell and Moe. Tink is asleep in one of the bottom cupboards of a cabinet and Moe is in a tent mum made him on her bed. My hands are shaking.

hm.

The people who live 4 houses down from us left a flyer in our mailbox saying that their cat, Ozzy, has gone missing.

This be a might unsettlin'.

There have been no reports about coyote sightings in our neighbourhood and the like, so I wonder....

There's a church 4 blocks away from my place and I'm going to go over there in a bit and see if they have a bulletin board that I can put a poster up on.
bunnylove: (GG - Lorelai & Rory)
I just finished watching the Gilmore Girls ep where Rory graduates from Chilton. It always makes me cry and think of my own lack of a high school career. :P

It's September, how the hell did that happen? Labour Day was always a source of sadness and anxiety in my house during my school years. I did not look forward to it at all, but now I can be glad it's here because I get the day off. :P My summer was pretty much nothing, just the same as everything else, so I don't have that 'back to school' anxiety. This is actually the very first September where I am 'free'. I've graduated high school and I don't have that hanging over my head. I did it and I don't have to do it again. It makes me smile. Now all I have to do is figure out how to get into college. This is what I want to do next. My only obsticle (besides getting into the program) is money. I'm not worry about paying for school, Dad always said that he would help out in that area. It's everything else. If I do that program it's three years full time and I would maybe only be able to work a max of 2 days a week, so I have no idea how I'd be able to make a full time income to pay for bills and stuff. The rent sucks up about 95% of my mum's pay cheque each month and the rest is up to me.

Of course I'm not going let that put a damper on my dreams, it'll just take me a bit longer to get in and figure out how mum and I can live. One day (I just hope it's sooner rather than later).

My dad's birthday is tomorrow. Since all of us are working we're going to celebrate on Wednesday. I got him a CD and a gift certificate to a book store since he can't make up his mind what book he wants for his birthday.

I'm going to be posting some autumn themed icons at [livejournal.com profile] bunny_icons later today.

Still nothing about Eowyn....
bunnylove: (Supernatural - Call me!)
Because the idiot that I am, I totally didn't consider calling the Vancouver SPCA. They're down town and Eowyn would have been taken there if she had been found outside of the district that my mum and I live in and not the district shelter. I called and they said they have so many stray cats that they didn't have time to check for me, so I'll have to come down. I'd be down there right now except if she is there I wouldn't be able to take the bus home and I can't afford a cab. The earliest mum or I will be able to get down there is Wednesday. Hopefully we'll get a miracle and she'll be there.
bunnylove: (Flat Kitty)
I want her back so badly.
bunnylove: (Milo - Sunshine)
Small Eowyn update: nothing. Tomorrow will be the three week mark and... I really don't know what to think. I do know I'm not giving up, I'd never give up. I'm going to call the shelter again today to see if anyone has turned in any new cats. Last night I had a good sob fest, it made me feel better, but it still feels like I have this weight in my stomach that won't go away.

I started cleaning out the shed yesterday and found a dead squirrel. I just kinda screamed and slammed the door. Mum's removed it and so I can continue with the sorting ect.

And now for some happier things:

Untagged J2 dorkiness thanks to [livejournal.com profile] moonilicious:



And new Milo (if anyone can get these un-watermarked that would be awesome):



I think that last one is a new favourite. :)

Thanks, Dot

I got a brand new towel (well the term on the label is body sheet) and as I was unfolding it there was a sticker saying, 'Inspected by Dot Pankey'. I feel safe and secure that my towel was inspected and I can use it without any fear.

I was in a video game mood and thanks to [livejournal.com profile] gremmie_goo's recommendation I rented Okami. Such a gorgeous game, I'm in love. Although I'll probably have to buy it, because at the rate I play video games these days it'll take me a year to finish. Actually maybe longer. I got Kingdom Hearts over 3 years ago and I still haven't finished. :P I'm close though.

Other than that my life lately hasn't been all that sunshine and flowers. I haven't posted about this publicly, but Eowyn's gone missing and it's been almost two weeks now. I'm going to go and hand out some more flyers today, I just hoping something comes of it. Otherwise I'm sure I'll have a nervous breakdown.

In better news I do have lead on a job that I really want. My mum and dad's accountant actually told my mum about it and said I would be perfect for it. My mum faxed my resume over on Friday, but since today is a holiday then I'll probably won't hear anything until at least tomorrow.
bunnylove: (Heroes - Nathan YATTA!)
I'm trying to type this entry with a cat in my face. Eowyn decided it would be nice to cuddle at this moment. <333 *wipes cat drool off the monitor*

The dream fairy that [livejournal.com profile] gremmie_goo gave me seems to be working. The night before last t I had Supernatural dreams and last night I had Heroes dreams. I was Nathan and Peter's sister (like that's going to stop me from getting in their pants LOL) and at one point we went to Starbucks (I prefer to keep work out of my dreams, kthx). Then at some point Sylar showed up and instead of cutting people's heads in two he was doing it to dolls. ???? Alrighty then.

I have to go to the dentist in a little bit. :( I don't hate the dentist, I just hate the taste of everything when the clean your teeth ect.

cut for big font )

LOL Eowyn is totally mauling a roll of paper towel now.

[eta] I just checked the mail and I want to say a big thank you to [livejournal.com profile] boromirslover and [livejournal.com profile] elvensapphire. Thank you so much for the cards guys! It means a lot to me. <333

[eta2] Aww! Adrian and Wifey (even though she looks about 12 there o.O)

Kat spam

[livejournal.com profile] gremmie_goo demanded asked for pictures of the troops, so I obliged.

First, I must say that we've hit a little snag with Moe. He's the type of cat where he'll let you know when he doesn't like something (but aren't all cats like that?). Anyway, mum was just carrying him into the living room and he wanted down so he bit her arm, but he bit her arm so hard that he punctured all the way down to the bone. At first there was just a lot of pain an swearing, but I just talked to mum at work and her wrist is just swelling so much and she cannot make a fist with her hand. She can hardly move her middle and ring finger.

Um, this isn't good. She's trying to see if she can get home early. I don't know if we should take her to the ER or something. I don't know if Moe punctured a tendon or broken the bone or just very badly bruised it. Anyway, mum's not too angry with him, he's under stress, so he's on the defensive as well.

I hope mum will be alright. :\

Ok, now for some piccies. Most of Tinkerbell's came out blurry, why I'm not sure and Moe just sat there and let me take some pictures so I had no problem with him. I took a couple or Eowyn, but they turned out really blurry as well, so sadly she's left out of this spam (even though she's #1 cat here).


Moe.

Today went well on the Tinkerbell front. She's pretty much moved herself in and surprisingly Eowyn won't go near her. I guess because Tink is still weary of her and growls every time she comes near. I thought it would be the other way around.

I let her out this evening and she had a good sniff around the yard. I lost her for about half an hour but we found her again. She did meet her first raccoon, but mum just scooped her up and we brought her right back in. She was curious, which we don't want in that area, so we're taking things slow. She's currently curled up on mum's shoulder.

Now for some pics. I tried to get some of her outside, but none of them turned out decent.

Mum wants to get her a glow and the dark collar because she blends into everything.
bunnylove: (Katherine - Golden)
She's home, mum and I went and picked her up around 4. Right now she's just sniffing around like a mad cat. Eowyn saw her through the carrier and just sniffed and didn't really make anything of it. Tinkerbell is actually the one who is hissing, I don't blame her though. She didn't like me picking her up, she just hissed and growled at me, but I wanted to show her where the box was, so now I'm just leaving her be.

Her carrier is set up in my room if she wants to go hide and that's about it. :) I hope Eowyn will be ok. I think she will, she has the rule of the house and I'm sure she'll bend Tink to her will. :P Sebastian won't meet her right now, that we want to save for later because he could do anything from ignore her or beat the living snot outta her. And he weighs a good 5-6 pounds more. Luckily we can just send him home if it's problem. XD

No pictures tonight, I think she has enough to deal with without me following her around with the camera.

Ahhhh cats.

Nothing says 'good morning and I love you' better than finding a dead bird in your bed when you wake up. I'm still picking feathers out of my sheets. Poor thing. :\

So it looks like Gilmore Girls has been cancelled. I was really hoping they'd do at least one more season. I wanted to see Luke and Lorelai get married and be happy. ;__; *sigh*

New SPN tonight!!!! *bounce*
bunnylove: (POTC - My Dirt...)
I've been trying to make this entry for the better part of the day, but every time I open up my client I can't think of what to write. I feel as if nothing I say will really convey what I really feel, but I'm sure anyone who has lost a loved one knows what I mean by this.

But what I can say a big heartfelt thank you to everyone for their comments and love in my last post. It really did help, even if I haven't said anything. I just want to be a hermit right now and hopefully take my mind off of things. I keep thinking that she's just asleep in the sun room or on the couch, but then I remember she isn't and it breaks my heart. Mum's been pretty sad all day as well. It'll take a bit for things to sink in really and get used to not seeing her around. It was like that with Jackson when he first left us. I kept thinking he was just over at dad's.

Eowyn, however, has been bouncing around and being a little terror all day. She's sniffed around and sort of made a tour of our place, but otherwise she doesn't seem sad at all. If anything I could almost think she was happy. I think she knew/knows and isn't too upset that she's gone. It's amazing what animals can do and think.

Again, thank you everyone for your kind thoughts and words, it means a lot to me. I may or may not reply, I dunno.

Last night I realized that when we adopted Coda we adopted her in April, so it's kinda odd how things like that work out. We got to have her for almost exactly 6 years.

Guys, if you have any furries please read the following article and the list of pet food that has been recalled:

http://www.menufoods.com/recall/
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/17754681/wid/11915773?GT1=9145

Mum and I were feeding Coda and Eowyn one of the brands on the list, but not everyday. We buy a few brands and one of them was on the list. They seem ok, Eowyn is bouncing around and Coda is still snoozing away 24/7. The only thing that's different is that Coda's taken to peeing outside of her box all the time now. We're keeping an eye on that, but she does seem fine. I poked her and she got annoyed. ^_^

bunnylove: (Supernatural - WTF?!)
She went to pick something up off the floor and it turned out to be a dead mouse. All I heard was this loud scream from the kitchen. At first I thought maybe a raccoon had gotten in.

Now the question is, was it Eowyn or Sebastian who brought it in?
bunnylove: (Supernatural - cracking up)
omg! Hi people. Hi!

My power has been out since about 2 pm. We just got it back on about 15 minutes ago. I was starting to turn into an ice cube. This is the second power outage here in less than a month. First the snow storm of d00m and now the wind storm of d00m. Anyway, I hope it'll stay on now.

I managed to spend $200 today! :D On what? Refills for my crazy pills and the dentist. Isn't giving the doctors money fun? At least my medical will cover my dentist (I have to pay them up front, boo), but what I had to pay for my pills is gone. ;_; Well, at least I won't go nuts for the next 3 months. That's a good thing.

Today I discovered a wonderful, magical and oh so drool worthy store. Open Sundaes. They have some of the most delicious body lotions, bubble baths and what not. They're all candy and yummy flavours. I had to buy some of the Chocolate body butter because it was just too good not to. When mum smelled it she almost ate some. I'm not joking. Guh.

It's kinda hard to type with a cat in your face. Of course Eowyn was all sleepy during the power outage and as soon as the lights go on it's play time. No, it's bed time, you go play with your wheel. Now she's climbing all over my book shelf and knocked over the photo Elijah Wood signed for me. *facepalm*

I have been instructed (again) to pimp [livejournal.com profile] burningxorchids. If you like to debate about different issues or just talk about stuff then go join. Otherwise [livejournal.com profile] burningxflowers will cry.

I am not looking forward to this week of work or next week. It's going to be hell and the book store hours are extended so now we're open earlier and later. On the 23rd we're open from 8am to 12am. It's freaking nuts! At least I open so I can bugger off at 4pm and then just crash. I requested 5 days off over Christmas. I just need a bit of a break and I've got a lot of vacation hours, so I'm going to use some of them.
