Hidden Treasures

One of the big things that I do each move is to downsize and get rid of a lot of needless junk. I am an extremely sentimental person. I still have a coffee stirrer that I got when I was like seven or eight and we were moving. Don't ask why I kept it. 'cause … Continue reading Hidden Treasures

In Bondage To Numbers

I hesitate to write this post because it’s a topic that I’m very sensitive about. I don’t like talking about it, I don’t like that my friends have to deal with it and I’d completely avoid it if I could. But I can’t. Because it’s an important subject that has to be talked about. *deep … Continue reading In Bondage To Numbers

An Adventure With Dried Limes

A few weeks ago, my grandpa and I were talking about dried limes (and how weird they were) and he ended up sending me a package of them. They are the strangest looking things! They are hard and dark brown. They really don't look like limes anymore. XD (Also sorry about the horrible pictures. I … Continue reading An Adventure With Dried Limes

The Secret of Happiness

I recently read Nobody by Susan Warner. While it is technically in the romance genre, I really enjoyed it because there was a deeper question and theme that wound itself through the whole book – is it possible to buy happiness? Does happiness come from having money, possessions and a social status? I’ve thought about … Continue reading The Secret of Happiness

An Inky Dream

I sit down at my computer to write a post on something that I didn’t think I’d get another chance to write on.

Dreamer has joeys!

I got Inky neutered in May. I made the hard decision that having joeys was putting a strain on Dreamer’s health and that I had to stop. It was a tough decision because I absolutely loved raising joeys and watching the miracle of life unfold right before my eyes. So imagine my surprise when I noticed two little bumps in Dreamer’s pouch that rapidly grew.

Let me be clear on one thing: Ink’s neuter was not unsuccessful. A common myth is that neuters are unsuccessful and because of that the female got pregnant. Females can hold joeys in stasis for up to a year. Dreamer got pregnant right before I had Ink neutered, not afterward.

I watched anxiously as the babies grew larger and…

A World That No Longer Makes Sense

Tonight I came to the conclusion that life doesn’t make sense. I look around at this broken world and I wonder what happened? Where did the joy go? Why is there so much suffering and so little hope to combat it? Why is evil so prevalent and why does good seem so small? Is it … Continue reading A World That No Longer Makes Sense

Random Life Update: June

Where did June go? Man, you guys, this month just flew by. I blinked and the calendar had switched from June to July. It doesn't really feel like summer. It's hot, but it's also been insanely rainy. Some days it feels more like fall! In fact, I'm listening to Christmas music as I write this, … Continue reading Random Life Update: June
