weekly roundup

16 Jun

Here are some tidbits from my week:

* I placed an order for Royal Jelly (as per one of my posts earlier this week) and supposedly it was delivered according to UPS but it and the present we ordered for my father magically went missing.  We are pretty sure the issue was on UPS’s end and not that one of our shady neighbors stole them.  According to the tracking they both happened to be delivered at the same time (even though they were shipped from different companies with different shipping methods).  Luckily the vitamin shoppe agreed to replace the order, haven’t been able to get in contact with the other company as they are closed for the weekend, hopefully they will do the same.  Very frustrating – and I have to try to figure out something else to get my dad for fathers day.

*Haven’t heard back from the state regarding our Dog Foster application, hopefully it won’t be much longer! I had hoped since I’m in the same city as the state department of Agriculture (who processes the application) it would be done in a more timely fashion – apparently not.

*The husband & I gave up cable awhile back to save money (a.k.a I’m cheap) – but to replace it we did opt for netflix and we are able to get HBOGO (thanks mom & her direct tv) on our XBOX.  So I’ve constantly been on the look out for shows to watch from these two sources, the hubs and I have been watching “Psych” together.  I have a harder time finding stuff to watch by myself as most of the stuff I would want to watch he also would want to watch.  I recently finished “Mad Men” (which seriously if you haven’t watched yet then get to it!).  Today I decided to start watching “Boardwalk Empire”, I’m only three episodes in so far but it looks pretty promising.  Anyone have any other shows they might recommend that would be available on Netflix or HBO?

So that’s about it in general type of news – I’ll be doing a post later today regarding some stuff that is infertility related!

we are so small in the scale of it all

So, this isn’t infertility related at all but I still feel the need to share it.  A friend of mine on facebook posted this link and I seriously looked at this thing for like an hour last night, I found it amazing.  I’ve never been that good at science & math, history and English were always my favorite and best subjects in school but still I have always found things related to science (especially Astronomy & Physics) to be incredibly interesting and often-times awe inspiring.  This link is to a scale slider – starting at humans and going down all the way to the smallest (string theory/planck length) to the largest (the observable universe/estimated size of the universe).

crazy dog lady

12 Jun

Yep that’s me.  So yesterday I agreed to sign up to be a foster dog parent.  After agreeing I then had to call my husband at work and inform him that I had signed us up for it, luckily my husband is so calm & kindhearted that it didn’t phase him in the least.  I’ve been on the fence about us doing this for awhile as we have three doggies of our own already, but yesterday I saw a listing for a dog that was scheduled to be killed today if no one was able to pull her from the shelter – so that pretty much made the decision for me.  We will go fill out the paperwork today and she will be boarded for the next week (I offered to pay for it) and then we will get her once our application is approved (which it will be seeing as how we were approved twice already to adopt rescue dogs).

I come from a long line of women who were crazy dog ladies, I guess I’m proud to carry on the tradition!
