      (Rave) Bought my own website/blog for a year I'll be using it mostly for my own lucid dreaming purposes for now.

      Ewwwww, Wobly... just ewwww
      It's strange, but when I was about 7 years old, I plucked the wings off a fly and cried for hours afterwards. When I was 12 or so, I tore off the butt of a firefly to make myself a glow-in-the-dark ring. I cried for hours after that one too.
      But I have always enjoyed popping ticks. The fatter, the better I found one on my cat, Simon, the other day and squishing it is still satisfying after all there decades

      Grats, Saizaphod. Happy dreaming to you

      Yesterday was a joke. I dropped the girls off at work and made it back home just a little after 1. At 2, my daughter called for me to pick her up. She nearly passed out during a meeting. By 2:30 she was at the ER close to work (needs excuse for work and she figured she probably needed insulin because she'd been without for a few days). Blah. I waited, napped, then waited some more in the car until close to 5:30. Thankfully, her wife got another ride home or I would have had to go back AGAIN.

      Rant: I seriously wondered if I was having a heart attack yesterday. After I dropped the girls off, I was driving home, same 'ole same 'ole: Chill, singing along to the radio. Suddenly it felt like a small child was sitting on my chest. The lower half of my vision seemed to gray and my ears started closing. What the heck? I get chest pain with gas all the time but this was much more intense. I had also been very nauseated the last couple hours. I checked myself: heart rate- normal; stomach- a little bloated but not bad; costochondritis- present but not bad in the least; allergies- allergies? By the time the song was over, the feeling passed, but I was exhausted for the rest of the day.

      Today, I had just a hint of a repeat. The pressure wasn't even a smidge as intense, but still moreso than with usual gas. I did the check again, then noticed my surroundings. It was close to the same area as yesterday, SO- either it was a psychological thing or an altitude thing (or a combination thereof). so now I'm more curious than concerned

      Rave: took a shower with the puppy. He's as big a baby as his mom. I figured I'd get him acclimated early and maybe he'll outgrow it. He's also doing a lot better on his leash... and tonight I'm buying him a collar. He'll outgrow it in no time, but he needs one so he'll stop choking himself.
      Keirra is doing much better with her meds and I finally figured out a better way to give her her antibiotic. I tend to eat cereal for breakfast and I give her my milk from it. I just open the capsule and stir it into the milk. No problem. Issue resolved.

      Rave: With the nicer weather and a puppy to train, I'm getting outside a lot more and I'm actually moving throughout the day lol. I still don't know what to do about proper walks though. The best time for that is 1AM. There are too many 18-wheelers and other cars on the road otherwise.

      I break the wings of butterflies, smear them with honey and feed them to the ants. I win!
      (In general, I enjoy feeding bigger creatures to smaller creatures.)

      You like the irony (or would it be symbolism) of toppling giants for the little guy?

      Other than ticks (fleas, house flies and fruit flies ), I hate killing anything. I always cringe when butterflies get in the path of my car. I can see the large white/black (depending on the year) wooly caterpillars on the road and I even swerve to avoid smooshing them

      Rave: Today has been a great day. No significant aches or pains; slept fairly well last night; good energy day; good mood- almost chipper even lol.
      I went shopping and got the pup his collar, a second leash, treats, a toy, bowls to pour water in when he gets big enough to go on walks with his mom and I.

      Then I found $10. in the middle of an isle while shopping. I looked around to find anyone obvious, but couldn't. Then I was a little giddy about free money. How could I just turn $10. in? Who would even notice, right away, that they lost it or where they lost it?
      I went through self-checkout. Got my sons stuff, rang up mine then noticed a register close to mine. The purchases had been abandoned. Then I wondered if I could just donate the money to the clerk to have the money applied to people who came up short.

      Just then, a young woman went to the register and told the clerk "I lost my $10." Right away, I said: "I have it" and I pulled it out of the middle of my pack (I keep my money in a side pocket). She thanked me and said she would have gotten into a lot of trouble with her boyfriend if she came home without the stuff.
      That brightened my mood too. What are the odds? The store was very busy today. There were at least 6 real registers open and then the cluster of self-checkout registers. That I found the money and then that she and I both ended up at the cluster at around the same time is neat.

      Rave: The pulse checker on the clone phone actually works. After doing some very basic stuff (filling a jug with water; feeding and watering the animals and plants; carrying plants outside; walking to the car twice) my pulse was 121. So, I checked it with my blood pressure cuff. 114/80 pulse of 121. Huh. Very neat that light can actually measure a pulse.

      **EDIT**
      Rave: I keep seeing 2 cool cars around town: One is an orange/yellow SUV that has "Tonka Toy" written on the side. The other is a VW Bug with a wind-up toy decoy thing on it's roof
      I've also seen 2 neat license plates: "NVRLKBK" and "STRDST" Any guesses as to what I think they say?

      Rant: I bought an $8. scale today too. I'm up to 150 pounds again

      Hope your feeling better now Zhaylin. You should probably get checked by a doctor if you felt that bad since checking yourself has limits but its up to you. It could possibly been allergies but I honestly have no idea.

      Reading on I think its great your considerate of small life despite the circle of life but even if we try...some things just have to be squished if you know what I mean...And I hate squishing roaches. Anyways its great that you managed to give the money back to the girl who lost it. Your very kind. The licence plates probably say "Never Look Back" and "Star Dust". Nice ^w^I could be wrong though.

      WOOT WOOT, that's what I think they say too DawnEye. I LOVE those types of license plates.

      And oh yes, I forgot to add those to the list. I guess living where I do has spoiled me but I would rather be locked in a room full of snakes than roaches... ESPECIALLY the flying ones Those are probably the one insect I would kill with fire, then demolish my house over

      Rant-ish: I'm going to have to listen to the puppy cry all day. He's being wormed so he's chained up outside. He does not like that one iota.
      Rants: My back hurts a little. I'm extra sleepy today. My pulse is just over 100 from doing simple things again. I have to stop at Walmart on the way to dropping the girls off at work. Hubby's sending me off for food today (not really a rant, just a meh )

      And now I must rush off. Have a great day everyone

      So the graphics card on my desktop decided it can't handle Children of a Dead Earth for more than five minutes at a time before the monitor feed just cuts off. I get the feeling it was a driver I installed on there awhile back because the graphics card seems to like to check out of a lot of situations; but I can't figure out how to uninstall it. I did a test and the damn thing can't even handle Minecraft for more than half an hour. Graphics card; you suck. Go back to 1992.

      So this got me motivated to check the numerous job applications I sent out to see if I could be making any money this summer and perhaps buy a new graphics card. (Better yet, a new computer.) I only got one response so far; from the local hardware store. They turned me down and the supervisor wrote a lengthy letter about how he was only considering people who would take the job 'seriously' and that I needed 'prior work experience'. What the hell are millennials supposed to get for a first job? Do we have to intern for a few years picking up cigarette butts by the side of the freeway before we are experienced and rounded enough to work as a cashier at a place as prestigious and notable as the local hardware store.

      Adventures in lucidland aren't going any better. My dream recall got really bad and all I can remember are some vague fragments about a really weird and glitchy sonic the hedgehog game. Not even sure where that came from; last time I played a Sonic game I think was about... 11 years ago. I don't know why that bothers me so much; probably because there should be a really nice lucid in its place.

      RRRGH AVATARS STILL AREN'T WORKING HERE?!!?!

      I can't complain about the weather we're having here, though.

      I hope you get your graphics card problem fixed or are able to replace it. I worry about my own machine. I get terrible fps spikes and stuttery lag on 7D2D. But that might just be the game. When the game finally comes out of Alpha, I wonder if my machine will run it at all
      heh, I thought the avatar thing was just me and my wonky machine. Whenever I mouse back to correct a misspelling, my arrow key doesn't take me to the end of the row. I thought that was just Edge (the only thing I can use for DV without getting the weird FB loop). Can anyone else arrow to the end of their sentence?

      Yeah, jobs suck. You need job experience to get a job but a job to get experience

      My sleep has been fairly rough too. Fitbit told me this morning that I average 4hrs and 9min (even though I'm "asleep" for some 8 hours I toss and turn so much that it doesn't count). My recall has been suffering too.

      Rant: My back still hurts It's okay unless I move, so I'm alright for the most part I think I'll try a bengay patch later. It hurts like before I start my period, but that already came this month..... unless not taking my Levothyroxine is going to make it arrive a second time?
      Rant: I'm really meh about taking the Levo. I don't really notice any benefits from taking it. My thyroid levels have remained pretty much the same. I'm cheap and would rather not buy it.

      Rave: the B vitamins are definitely working. I put a weeks worth of meds in one of those pill dividers at the start of each week. Last week, my toes were starting to hurt and I couldn't figure out why. I looked in my divider and realized I hadn't taken the B vitamin for 3 days because I forgot to include it.

      Rant: Pepsi Fire is disgusting

      Rant: I'm extra sleepy today.

      Rave: Alien arrives in our theater tonight. I'm trying to talk hubby into seeing it. It's been a long time since I've seen a decent scary movie.

      Has anyone heard from Tommo?

      Rant: I somehow injured (?) my lower front gums. It's sore and swollen. I kept waking up with a finger in my mouth (the salt on my fingers soothes such wounds).
      Rant: I'm being overrun with houseflies. They're just ignoring the fly strip I hung yesterday
      Rant: I can't upload a picture So here's a link https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater Last night was one of my more restful nights of sleep

      Rave: It's the weekend NO taxi service
      Rave: Hubby and I are going to the movies at 3:30
      Rave: My back feels a lot better today, so far.

      Rant: I need new coils... which means I need to take out an advance of $50. to buy them from hubby for $20. I like the e-juice I bought... sort of. It's Lincoln brand "bedrock". I've had it for almost 2 weeks now and the taste is starting to ??? dwindle. I cut it with some Feast of the Undead but I'm almost out of that one ANYHOW The juice is meant for Drippers, I think. It's too thick or something so I go through coils much faster.


      Breakfast time. Have a good day everyone.

      Rant:
      • Had a lot of desserts today.
      Rave:
      • Hung out with old friends two days in a row and visited new restaurants.
      • Loved the conversation and the food in the restaurants I went to.
      Cry:
      • Had a lot of desserts today.
      • Today's my weight check-in date. Trying to lose a few pounds before grad.
      • Been on the job search since February. Still unemployed.

      lol, Crypt. I understand the dessert rant and cry completely1
      Welcome to DV!!!

      Rant: What the heck, pulse? I got out of bed at 9:30 (). I ate a bowl of cereal and some strawberry's with crumbled "cake" and whipped cream. I could feel my pulse racing so checked my BP. BP is good: 121/87 but my pulse... my completely RESTING pulse is 113 I'm going to experiment on myself and take a caffeine pill to see if that slows things down. With this new schedule, I don't need them like I used to. I've rarely taken even one in over a month. I'm curious if my body is like an ADD kid who drinks coffee to go to sleep.

      Rant: I have a pimple cluster on my chin. They wont surface though

      Rant: When I woke this morning, I thought my urethra was going to rupture (nevermind my bladder ) I even dreamed of peeing rofl. In the dream, I was going to stick my butt out a window to pee but was worried that neighbors would see me. Then I was going to use a bowl, but it was too dirty. I don't think I have had to pee that fiercely in a very long time.

      Rave: I slept amazingly last night. I took 1/2 a cyproheptadine as well as a Benadryl. I even had the equivalence of just over 6 hours

      I hope everyone is alive and well.

      **EDIT**
      Most curious. Took that caffeine pill and my pulse dropped to 95. Took a scalding hot shower and it dropped to 94 Now I'm ready for a nap

      Thanks Zhaylin! I appreciate the sympathy That sounds like a delicious morning breakfast you had there. I'm just curious though, wouldn't taking a caffeine pill elevate your resting pulse/heart rate more? I totally understand the pimple situation although mines been much better ever since adding Vitamin C serum to my skincare regimen. I've noticed that my pimple scars fade much faster and makes my face feels much healthier and brighter.

      Rant: Woke up before I had the chance to fully complete my lucid dream goal which was to *cough* make out with one of my crushes (I know, so juvenile but I can't help what my desires were that day ). I got as far as doing reality checks and dream stabilizing methods and even telling my crush about how this was going to pan out. But unfortunately it was cut short after I suddenly found myself drifting out to the sound of someone playing aggressively on their piano. (And then waking up to realize it was a false awakening and then waking up for real.)

      Rave: Haven't tried to lucid dream purposely in a few years (if my estimation is correct, about 3-4 years now) and this morning, I tried WBTB + FILD and it worked like a charm (for the most part).

      Cry: See (Rant). Oh and I did my weekly weight check in and I'm up 0.8lbs. Darn sweet tooth of mine. >.>

      *Edit: I guess the caffeine pill helped! I've never tried those before. Which brand do you use?

      Heh, it was likely a fluke. Both caffeine and hot showers are *supposed* to elevate ones pulse. I used to take caffeine pills and fall right to sleep though
      I take "Jet Alert"- 200mg caffeine, sold at Wal-mart.

      This pimple cluster is getting on my last nerve. Seems it might be something called "Cystic Acne"? They're deep and hard and wouldn't surface. I finally popped them though. They drain forever (only when actively squeezing them though). I read, though, that I should just leave them alone lol. I'm putting some antibiotic ointment on it, but I might have to find that serum. I seem to get the cluster once a month to once every few months. Same places too. I'm 43 years old. I didn't have pimples like this when I was a teen

      Glad you had semi-success with your lucid

      Rant: My face is annoying me
      Rant: It's Monday... back to taxiing my kids.
      Rant: The washer completely died.

      Rave: Because the washer died, my daughter and her wife are going to rent-to-own one come Wednesday. I can finally stop going to the laundromat (the washer stopped working for me last year. I have sensitive skin and the washer stopped- what's the word again- agitating (?) the clothes. That's not the word. It didn't beat the clothes enough to get all the soap out.)
      Rant: My pulse is still being a PITA and my back still bothers me off and on.

      Rant: I cannot eat strawberries. My reflux was so bad I was burping vomit for hours the last few days I'd eaten them. I ended up giving the rest to the kids.

      **EDIT**
      BLAH! I ended up taking 2 caffeine pills today. Fell asleep soon after taking the second one. I could not keep my eyes open for anything today.

      Rave: I'm turning 28 next month and I stopped ageing 12 years ago. I do enjoy the shock on people's faces when I tell them my real age.

      @Anju wow I thought you were a good 5 years younger based on pictures, and happy upcoming birthday!

      It has been too long since I've posted here. Let's see. I am a bit sick with a cough and cold at the moment, my brother infected me :/. Last week of semester currently and my exams are coming up, so both a rave and rant I guess. I'm starting to really think I should get a girlfriend, have been a bit lonely recently, hopefully with new classes next semester I might meet someone and not sperg out around them hehe. Reading Jung has been difficult but I am enjoying it, I see a lot of parallels with what I have experienced in my dreams.
      Well that's about all for the moment, I hope everyone is doing well and is striving to achieve something that they think is good I need to work on that.

      This morning, our CEO decided that only Acura, Lexus, Mercedes and Porsche may park out of front of our office building. "Blue collar" vehicles such as Ford, Chevy, Toyota, etc. must park out back because they bring down the image of the company. ...specifically, but without being direct, he is saying that my 4x4 truck ruins the company's image. What a .....

      Lol, Anju. I used to share your humor but my age finally caught up with me lol

      Blair, I'm sick too. I hope you get better soon and that you find someone to share your life with.
      Meh, I tried reading Jung once but I just don't have the attention span for it nowadays lol.

      AnderJ, I would be peeved. What a stuck up jerk.

      Rant: I have been feeling worse and worse since yesterday. I started to leave to pick up the girls at 9PM and I "let one rip" but got much more than I bargained for I successfully duck-walked to the restroom without making a mess all over myself and my clothes. So, I guess that much of it is a rave.

      Today I'm freezing. My head feels warm to the touch but my hands and feet are freezing to the touch. My thermometer says I'm not running a fever though
      I can't get enough sleep. I'm very nauseated. Blah.

      Rave: the girls got a car today. Tomorrow, they'll start driving it to work and back. I have doubts about its ???? usefulness and life. It's only going to cost $1,600. all in all so as long as it doesn't die in a month they can use it as a trade-in.
      I have to drive them back down the road (yes, the dealership is VERY close to home) so they can pay more down and get the temp plates for it. After that, I am FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

      For now though, I guess I'll put away my iPad and take a nap until I have to pick them up.
      Hope everyone is well.

      It's too quiet here again.
      It's good that no one has any rants... but no raves either?

      Rant: I'm headachy today. It's either the weather or sinuses.
      Rave: An awesome site I finally gave a try. Or is it an app? It's in the Windows 10 store called "Cinebox". They have shows and movies. I guess it's pirated stuff, but I don't understand how it can be an official app if it is. But the shows and movies wouldn't be available if it wasn't Hmmm.
      Anyhow... I'm FINALLY, after all these years, starting to watch Grey's Anatomy. I really like it so far.

      Rant: 7D2D still hasn't released the new Alpha. Starbound still hasn't released their space update. It's hard for me to get into my gaming with those updates "right around the corner". Also, 7D2D has become very glitch lately. I don't know if it's because I have too many different saves or if I just chose bad seed names.
      Rave: Finally got the dryer working after having hubby come over to look. Turns out the breaker was partially thrown

      Oh yeah, it's been a while. After the girls got their "clinker" (car), they went to a rent-to-own store and got a washer and dryer. I hooked things up slightly wrong. Paula looked for a wiki and found what was wrong and wired everything up right but the dryer still wouldn't work. We've been waiting since Thursday for hubby to come over. After I failed, I stepped away and let them do their thing. I never even thought to try the breaker lol. Ah well.

      Humor: One of the little kittens has gunky eyes. Ray (my eldest) cleaned one, but the kitten threw too big a fit when he tried to clean the other. So I pinned it down to clean it. The kitten made quite the ruckus and his mom got concerned and actually nipped me to tell me to leave her baby alone. None of our cats have ever been that protective before. It was endearing and a little funny.

      Yesterday, I took a shower with the calico kitten. She scratched my chest a tiny bit at first but she quickly started to love the shower. When I was finished with her, I set her on a ledge (like a seat) in the shower so I could wash my hair. She just looked up at me and into the spray and seemed to enjoy herself.
      Then I noticed a smell. Kitten diarrhea-ed under herself. I asked her if it was payback for getting her wet I scooped water in my hands and swished it around her to clean up and she didn't even budge. Then I washed her again, , cleaned the shower then wrapped her in a towel.
      She is SO spoiled. She loved the towel even more than the shower. Weird kitten. My cats tolerate showering with me, but I think she's the first that actually thoroughly enjoyed herself.

      The puppy's a rotten monster. He scoops the kittens up and carries them off to play much too roughly with. He got spanked yesterday for it. But his momma's starting to play with him and teaching him boundaries. Her meds have dried up her milk so he's no longer latching on every 2 seconds... which means she's not running away and hiding from him.
      Rave: Her ears look SO much better. The meds are doing an amazing job.

      Hope everyone's alive and well.

      Here's two animals to make you smile:

      Pretty kitty.

      I got walking pneumonia (Because I can walk)Tree pollen storm went astro with the warnig colors up past the orange and red to the blue and purple. prolly where the pneumonia came from..got steroids I never like..nose stuff and Claritin (generic) which I think is the only thing that helped..Dr gave me Rx for them cost 21 dollarinos for 30.. Cost 4.57 for 60 at Walmart.. Took the Rx ones back..
      It won't get warm outside, 68 degrees for the future at best.. bought AC just to filter the pollen in the place..
      All I ever do is eat! (and nap) Too wet to fish, Too lazy to go fishing...
      Too bad for me eh

      Waiting for next months tasks, Maybe I can nap up a couple wings..

      Get better soon Wobly!! It's chilly here today too. Or, at least, in my room it is lol. I keep wanting to turn the temp up but then it'll get too hot. So I guess I'll just put on a long-sleeved shirt
      I never cared for Claritin (generic doesn't work for me so there's no way I'm paying for the named stuff ) Good 'ole Benadryl helps most of my allergy complaints. It does make me sleepy though, which is why I only take it before bed.

      My chest is hurting more frequently. I'm 95% sure it's just gas. I worry about that other 5% though. I see my Dr. next month, so I'll be sure to ask her about it.
      Rant: That pretty kitty is in her death throes She was completely fine. A little diarrhea but nothing extreme. I'm fairly desensitized about cat deaths at this point in time. Loosing her is going to be really tough on my eldest though. He really liked her.

      Rant: I'm back to taxi servicing The girls were driving to work today and the speed dropped to 20mph going up the mountain and it was shaking so much they feared the tires would fly off, so they called me to follow them home. They were halfway to work I got them home... then took them to work.
      They still owe $600. on the car. The man sold it to them with no guarantee but said there was no major problems with it. I'm not sure how they should proceed. I told them to just take it back and eat the $1,000. they've already paid. Paula wants to pay the balance and use it as a trade-in for something better. But who would accept it?

      Rant: My toes have been hurting since Sunday night. We went out to eat with hubby's daughter. The food was very rich and I had a few bites of Cod and Crab something-or-other. I've also been running a little more dehydrated than usual.
      They're still just a 4-6 on the pain/annoyance scale, so it's no intolerable yet. Hopefully, staying hydrated and avoiding bad food will let the Vitamin B do it's thing.

      Rant: My room's a friggin pigsty (sp) but I have no motivation to clean it. I have no motivation to finish my fanny pack... I have no motivation to play my games or read or study or friggin anything. I might just go back to bed, but I'm not sure I'm motivated enough to even do that

      Rant: DV is being SOOOOOOO slow.

      Rant: My toes are not back to a consistent 6/7 on the pain/annoyance scale (when they don't hurt, they're cramping and annoying me to the point I have to pop them which causes pain rofl)

      Rave: I discovered the joys of using an AUX cord and listening to JW podcasts while taxiing.

      Rave? I took 300mg Gabapentin last night before bed. Seems to work okay. My Dr. wanted me to take 200mg at breakfast or to space it if it made me sleepy. Spacing it made me too sleepy or I'd just forget the second dose.
      Ppl take insane doses so 300mg at once is no big deal.
      But sure enough, it knocked my butt out and I didn't need the Benadryl and Cyproheptadine. And I still woke before my alarm

      Have a great day everyone.

      Come on, people. This isn't my blog

      I am very not well. I spent almost all day yesterday in bed. I wasn't sleeping, I was just freezing... and then I was burning up... and then I was freezing

      I also started my period 4 days early yesterday. That explains the total lack of motivation. I mean, yeah, I'm lazy. But when I'm too lazy to game or watch shows something's REALLY not right lol.

      I finally fell asleep at 1:30 AM and woke at 6:30. I had to rush to the restroom, turn on the water at the main (laundry room), wait for the tank to fill, flush, turn the main off, take the puppy outside........ and then I felt as though someone gut punched me, my ears started ringing, my vision started grading at the edges, I felt like passing out. I grabbed my BP machine. Huh... not quite right but not vagal vasal (or is that vise versa?) 129/91 pulse 91.

      I got back under the covers, laid back, took it again: 137/90 pulse 81.
      Alrighty then Figured I may just be hungry then, even though I drank a large strawberry milk before sleeping. I chugged some ice cold Coke. I got on my iPad to google Gabapentin and Benadryl combined but DV came up. Now I'm feeling a bit better. Some pressure in my ears still so if I was to get out of bed, I'd get light-headed again.

      Stupid body or brain, always falling apart.

      I wore my Fitbit around my wrist instead of my ankle last night. I was curious if my sleep results would change. They changed all right! For the worst though, which I was not expecting. From 1:30-6:30, I got the equivalent of 1 1/2 hours of sleep

      Now I'm off to try to get some actual zzzzzz's before taxi service begins.

      Heh, I too spent the morning in the doctors office for pneumonia mostly brought on by the goddam pollen.
      While I was sitting there an aide came out leading a big, old man.He looked confused as if maybe he had suffered a stroke some time in the past..as the aide talked to the receptionist he stood humbly beside her leaning on the counter and blew a tremendous fart so long and loud it sounded like a locomotive rumbling by.. He just looked confused and stumbled to a chair to wait for her and I thought..
      "Oh-God if only I could fart like that I wouldn't even need a doctor"

      ROFL Poor old guy. Sometimes, I wish for his ability too... though, in the secrecy of my bedroom lol.
      I hope you kick pneumonia's butt soon

      Rave: I managed to get a little more sleep but still felt slightly off as I took my daughter to work. I popped a caffeine pill on the way home. I was going to be danged if I spent all day in bed again.
      And, sure enough, I actually had a somewhat productive day. I got a teensy portion of my room cleaned. I also, did indeed, manage to stay out of bed. A tremendous achievement

      Rave: A teensy tiny bug fell from a roll of TP earlier. I caught him from the corner of my eye and searched for him on the floor. I didn't hesitate to pick the little guy up. It was a praying mantis; perhaps as big as the sharpened point of a pencil. I've never seen one so small before. I took him outside to my plant.

      Rant: Yet another kitten is dying I found him in the yard and thought the puppy got ahold of him. I picked the kitten up and he bit the tip of my thumb quite forcefully. I laid him at the edge of some tall grass to be in peace. After informing my kids, so they could stand guard with the other kittens, my eldest told me he had seen the kitten earlier in the day and he looked sickly- that the puppy wasn't to blame.... which means the rest (4) will probably follow suit shortly.

      Rant: While eating with my hubby I had a slight light-headedness attack again. What the heck........ and now I have to get ready to taxi...
