So I there’s been some radio silence on the blog lately. And I was doing so well for awhile there. I just haven’t been feeling well. I haven’t been up to photographing stuff or doing much in the way of swatches or reviews. The kids are back in school and we’ve been having many appointments at NARA. So it’s been a little busy. We got rid of our old couch. Hopefully soon I’ll find a used leather one to replace it with. Mochi got fixed last Wednesday. She’s been a clingy, meowing mess since. xd She’s meowing constantly. She follows me around with “meow, meow, meow, meow”. Everywhere. Today we went to NARA for family therapy and we were gone about 3 hours. When I got home Mochi was waiting right at the door for me and immediately started meowing and rubbing on me. I took a short Instagram video:

You can’t hear her, but she would meow and I would meow back at her. Also. Dun, dun dun. We are getting a new kitten. The kiddos therapist and I have talked off and on about emotional therapy with a companion pet for them. They’ve really missed Zero. So she gave me a companion pet letter for them. She doesn’t usually do that. People usually just want a letter to avoid paying a deposit. She thinks the kids would do really well with animal therapy.

So anyways. Britton from Haus of Gloi found a mama cat with 3 adorable kittens outside their business location. She posted about them in the HoG facebook group. Immediately I fell in love with the gray kitten. See picture below:

All the kittens

This is his mama:
Mama cat

Isn’t she beautiful? I believe Britton is keeping mama and maybe the orange dude. She named the orange one Tucker. :d We have named the gray kitten Poet. Well the kids named him. He has beautiful green eyes like his mama. Look how cute he is!


Poet is coming home Friday. We are super excited. He’s so sweet. I met him and Britton and Matt and Jen from HoG last Friday. Super nice peoples. The kittens were adorable and so entertaining. xd Loved them.

Also So. Funny story. Some of you have heard already. xd The other day Fumiko was badgering me to trim her bangs. I hate trimming her bangs because we have no hair scissors, it takes forever to make them straight. So I being the brilliant person I am, decided to trim her bangs with the clippers. All was well until she jerked and I shaved off half of her eyebrow. So then I shaved off half the other eyebrow to make them even…. then the next morning Fumiko took my brow trimmers and completely shaved off her brows. Now she says she’s going to keep shaving them off because she doesn’t want brows because I don’t have any… her quote “If you don’t have browns then I don’t have brows!”. Lord. So then I told her I couldn’t grow eyebrows and I actually want nice brows and that apparently makes no difference to her. She is against brows now. We’ll see how long this lasts…

She looks like a cute little alien. xd Will she grow them back or keep removing them? Too bad I can’t steal hers. t.t We also started decorating for halloween at the beginning of September. >.> So excite. We also did crockpot stew, mango cider and pumpkin cookies for Mabon and also did some smudging/prayers at NARA. It was pretty wonderful. I hope everyone else had a blessed Mabon.

This week is crazy for me. I have appointments every day but Monday. I am so tired. Yesterday I saw a sleep specialist and have to go back on the 23rd to spend the night so they can test me. I don’t know how that’s going to go because I have to sleep, but I haven’t been sleeping so that’s why I saw them. Poop. Today I saw an allergy specialist and found out I have Oral Allergy Syndrome. Which explains why I get gut wrenching pain when I eat some foods. So I have a list of things I shouldn’t eat:

  • Alder pollen: almonds, apples, celery, cherries, hazel nuts, peaches, pears, parsley, strawberry, raspberry
  • Birch pollen: almonds, apples, apricots, avocados, bananas,¬†carrots, celery, cherries, chicory,¬†¬†coriander, fennel, fig,¬†hazel nuts, kiwifruit, nectarines, parsley, parsnips, peaches, pears, peppers,plums, potatoes, prunes, soy, strawberries, wheat; Potential: walnuts
  • Grass pollen: fig,¬†melons, tomatoes, oranges, celery, peach¬†
  • Mugwort pollen¬†: carrots, celery, coriander, fennel, parsley, peppers, sunflower
  • Ragweed pollen¬†: banana, cantaloupe, cucumber, green pepper, paprika, sunflower seeds/oil, honeydew, watermelon, zucchini, echinacea, artichoke, dandelions, honey (if bees pollinate from wild flowers),hibiscus or chamomile tea
  • Possible cross-reactions (to any of the above): berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc), citrus (oranges, lemons, etc), grapes, mango, figs, peanut, pineapple, pomegranates, watermelon

Yeah that’s lovely. I also talked to him about Fumiko because she too is allergic to apples and pears and other various foods give her stomach aches. He told me it’s very likely she has the same thing going on. Ugh. Why life? Why? So I am to pull all these things from our diet and slowly add stuff back to see which things we react to. If we react to it then we don’t eat it. He said I may have issues with the whole damn list or just certain things. Lucky me, I can already cross a few things off that I know I can’t eat. This is going to be fun. Tomorrow I have a meeting at NARA to deal with my disability stuff. Woo. My body is protesting everything right now. My bones ache, my muscles burn and have shooting pains, my joints are stiff and hurt and the joints around my fingers and wrist are swollen. My brain is out to lunch. I had little and big dots all over my arms earlier from the allergy test. Dude some of those spots itched and burned like a mofo. It was all I could do not to scratch the crap out of them. d= But hey at least I have some answers. Now if only I could get answers on the rest of my body. *sigh*

Next week I have a doctors appointment, then a home visit that afternoon, then therapy the next day, then therapy for Sascha the day after that. So much for my poor body. At least our brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes and spinach and kale are okay. We just have to do more now. xd I’m so grateful my kids like vegetables and will eat them. And chia seeds they like those. Oh and hummus. Om nom nom. Tonight for dinner we shall have buffalo chicken and broccoli. I found a mild buffalo sauce and the kids are all over it. Fumiko wanted me to buy every bottle on the shelf. Thankfully there was only two. I must go now. My arms are beyond screaming at me right now and are threatening to protest me.
