Deep breaths. :p

I guess I've had a little head start in getting used to the idea it's October, but I hate we're at this end of this year already!
Whoever says "It's only a rabbit" has obviously never loved a rabbit.

Good news here: the weather has finally dropped from the 90s to the 80s and even 70s. When it isn't raining. I went for 1st nature walk of the season this weekend.
Bad news here: It's Season. 3-4 months of tourist madness and horrible drivers, followed by abrupt unemployment for the locals. Sigh.

It's pouring rain here and cold right now If it keeps like this we will definitely have snow before Halloween... so depressing

I'm so exhausted today it's not even funny! I work Monday-Saturday as it is, between my two jobs and on Saturday I got stuck working for 17 hours straight with only a 15 minute lunch :| I've worked long days before, but that was to a whole new level. We were on emerg, at the clinic, and once school starts we aren't usually busy again until Thanksgiving (which is next weekend, in Canada). But I swear anything that could go wrong did, and it was just insanely stressful. The only upside is that my animals missed me, so they were extra lovey the poor rabbits got their dinner 7 hours late and I went straight home and passed out and my cat cuddled up beside me for 10 hours while I was dead to the world.

And now, with only one day off, I'm back at work, at my office job. Everything is quiet here so I'm hoping I can get away with being the walking dead today SHHHH

It's been really cold here too but I don't think we'll get snow... yet!

I like that it's October in the sense of I like fall things- apples, pumpkins, changing leaves, not burning-hot weather. And it means the semester is progressing.

I don't like it because I'm not ready for winter yet!!! Or my sister's wedding :/

I have an HIV/AIDS Education class and we students have to post to a discussion board. I posted one of the early theories of what people thought HIV/AIDS came from when it first occurred in the United States. One of my classmates replied and got angry saying that HIV/AIDS is not only passed by man to man, but to women and children. Uh, I do know that, however, I am just stating what I know and what people had THOUGHT back then. This person is a guy that who knows everything. I sometimes think that he should be a doctor sometimes by how much he knows. I do know that anyone can get AIDS, however the fact that he not only misread my post, but attacked me with EXCLAMATION MARKS in this reply made me pissed. So I asked him if he read my post carefully, because I posted an early theory of how people thought about AIDS, NOT that how that is the only way of transmission.

Sorry, I just needed to vent. People just.. UGHHHHHHHHHHHHH

*pulls hair out!*

Today is my Friday at work and I look forward to it being done and over with. One of the previous Assistant Managers is coming back to work as a Person in Charge (helps out cashiers when they need it)! She is FABULOUS and I cried when she left She is that type of person that takes care of you and you enjoy talking to because they make you feel at home even when you hate work.. LOL! This is the woman that gave me a whole bag of romaine lettuce last summer for Chacha! It was totally not expected!

Oi! Today is the first of October and I didn't even realize it. Silly me for responding in the September chat! xD I really cannot understand Florida weather. It confuses the living day lights out of me. Yesterday it started raining when it was perfectly sunny. And this morning it was so hot I would have thought we were in the middle of August. Not just ten minutes ago it started to get really stormy looking outside and began to pour. I just don't understand it. >.<

ChaCha people like that annoy the living piss out of me. I can have quite a temper sometimes and when people act like that it makes me want to reach over and give them a good smack in the face.

Cinnabun I'm right there with you! That is one of my favorite movies! Tim Burton is mad genius.

AUUGGHHH Peppy is driving me nuts today. I don't know what's gotten into her, but she's on a carpet spree! She's been hopping around my apartment all morning, nose to the ground, looking for bits of carpet to pull out. I woke up at 7am to the sound of carpet being ripped out, and got out of bed to cover the spot. Then 30 seconds later...same thing. After almost an hour of this I was fed up so I took her carrier out, put some hay/water in it, and locked Peppy inside for a couple of hours while I went back to sleep. Kind of felt bad since it's a small space, but she no longer has a cage and it's exam week so I really needed my rest.

Sigh, now she's at it again. Come on silly bunny, it's 2pm and time for you to go take your nap so I can study...please!! They're so frustrating sometimes...

Bosse will hardly ever play with me since he got his condo. He's just chilling in there pretty much all day he gets out for like 5 minutes, gets pets, and then goes either back in, or goes to his little nic cage hidey hut I made for him with leftover cubes. I miss my little buddy (

SkippersMama -- Hahahaha, totally! My boyfriend and friends ALL laugh about what a rabbit freak I am! I can't help it though. I feel like they're so fragile that I just always have to be prepared!! And those Ziplock bags are annoying! We bought some to store all our veggies in too. And ended up just giving up on them... You literally had to pump like 10 minutes straight for like 1 bag.

Svandis -- Awwwww, he'll start to miss you! All 3 of mine were just like that when we built their condo but now they're always banging on their doors to come out. Everyone needs a place to be "theres" and I think that's what they love about it. They never get in trouble in there and can just tear apart whatever they find.

The buns have been going through SOOOO much hay since we limited their pellets. Roughly a pound a day between all 3. LOL. So we were forced to stop buying the small Oxbow bags of hay and had to order the 9 lbs of Orchard Grass. It's hard to figure out how that tiny of an animal can eat soo much! I swear I'm always refilling their hay hangers! We had to hang two on the side of their condos because filling up their litter boxes just wasn't enough anymore.

Peppypoo -- I definitely feel your pain! But lucky for me, they go right back into the cage! If mine were free-roam... *shudders*

Tanlover, they do eat a ton of hay lol my two get the giant bales for horses and i'm always surprised by how fast they go through the purple tub I fill up for them from it. Bottomless pits of hay eating.

I turn 26 this month, ack. I try to read my teenage cousins FB posts and I don't understand half of what they say. I feel old. lol

Hope everybun is doing well this month.

Yay October!! Can't wait for November when I get to pick up my new baby bunny!! I wish I knew for sure that we'll get one so I could start buying a bunch of bunny stuff The breeder was supposed to take some pictures on the weekend but so far I got nothing, I hope she didn't forget


Stickerbunny, we are almost the same age, so you aren't the only senior here  I don't even bother with facebook, or twitter, or smartphones... lol, I just want one of those big button old people dumbphones and for the kids to stay off our lawn!!!


tanlover, it's great that they eat so much hay! I guess there's no way for you to get a bale of hay somewhere? That should be cheaper, I can get one for $7 or so.


Svandis, don't worry, the new will wear off and he'll come out to bug you and get into trouble in no time!

Happy October every one!

Skipper, I'm right there with you about the weather! I was low 80's yesterday so some friends and I spent the day at the springs laying out and swimming in the cool water (constantly 72* and crystal clear for those who don't know!)

I got an interesting text from a friend of mine the other day. She offered me one of her rabbits. We both have zoos in our houses, and she says she has too many mouths and wouldn't mind downsizing. What's interesting is she's offering me the bunny that originally got me into rabbits. I got Tofu because she got to the other one first (mutual friend was offering it up on facebook). I don't know what to do. On one hand I would really love to adopt this little lop eared girl! On another hand I don't know if it's too soon. When I thought of adopting another rabbit I wanted one who was already neutered/spayed and littertrained. This baby is neither. She's still small though.... about the size of a florida avocado, and apparently insanely sweet. Opinions?

In other news I was voted Captain of my roller derby's home team. A very big honor! I am taking a map making class this semester. I thought I would hate it, but now I really want to go and get the most of it because how cool would it be to tell people that I can make maps? lol

Hazel, we'd LOVE if we could get a bale of hay -- but we currently live in a condo complex that doesn't allow animals.  I think we'd have a rather hard time of sneaking in a huge bale of hay along with having a small closet that we keep all the buns stuff in.  We would def have to do some rearranging but if we had ideas on how to sneak it in we would probably do it.  We calculated how much the cost would be on how much they are going through of oat hay (they only have small sizes in Oxbow) and what we buy and it came out to $150 a month, phew.  So the poor buns are being forced to switch back to Orchard Grass which comes in larger sizes with Oxbow (we buy pretty much all of our bunny stuff Oxbow).  My BF turned out to be allergic to Timothy so our buns had to be switched off that too!  Oy Vey.  I wasn't sure how easy it would be either to find barns or places that sell anything besides Timothy but then again... I've never really looked.  I'm from Pittsburgh though so I'm not sure how far we'd even have to drive to find a bale!  

Zoologist -- My opinion is that maybe you should go over and spend some time with the bun AND THEN see what you think!  Sometimes buns and people just CLICK but if not, then I would suggest waiting and finding one that really suits your needs and what you're looking for.  Congrats on being voted Captain!

Stickerbunny, I just turned 24 so I'm not very far behind you guys!  I do the same thing now with the FB posts and I swear I think seniors in high school still look like they're in 7th grade!  

Arghhhh!!  I'm going to go nuts if the BB store doesn't get the I-Clicker in soon!  I'm DYING to start working with my crazy energetic boy bun who is having some behavioral issues!  I've been reading a lot up on it and I'm really excited to start! 


I think it's a sign that I'm getting really old with all these weather things...or maybe I've just been enjoying the little things in life more than usual lately.  I was walking home from work today and really enjoyed the slight breeze and the leaves all over the ground..  And just the other week I was enjoying the thunder storms we kept having (which is strange because I typically have always despised the rain!).

We had snow yesterday. It didn't stick but brrrrrrrr...... >_<
My son will be having his wisdom teeth out on friday and I have a punch biopsy because of an odd mole change on my chest tomorrow. My youngest cat may be in the early stages of CRF and Mimzy still has a 90 degree head tilt...but he seems well within himself regardless.

Other things going on in my family that I won't go into here...just suffice it to say that stress is high.
I'll be glad to be saying goodbye to 2012 in a few months. Going to try to enjoy the remainder of the year regardless. Wishing us all better times ahead! (((((((((Hugs all around)))))))))
