Mousies! Yay!

So, I thought I'm pretty much a cat person that likes dogs, but on visiting the pet store today (after having the bastards at the pathology place take 5 farking vials of blood from me) I find that I'm also a mouse person! Maybe it was the blood loss, but these guys were just soooo cute! The girl at the pet store pulled one out for me to look at and though i was expecting bitey and vicious, it was actually just playful and sniffy.
Of course I came home with a mating pair of them. I have too much time on my hands right now and the pet store buys them for $2 so I said why not. I got them an adorable little plastic case to live in with a little shoe so they can cuddle up and hide when they need to. Lucky little things got some of my old broccoli for dinner. They seemed happy.

Of course I got a couple of pics of them for whoever wants to see. They are a bit blurry cause my camera does weird shiat in the lighting in my room. They are adorable though... The boy is called Splinter and I'm still trying to think of a name for the girl. The top one is the boy the bottom the girl. As you can see the boy tolerates being picked up. The girl runs...

I also FINALLY got a swiss army knife. I'd wanted one for a long time. This is the one I picked up. It's simple, but This one was a bit out of my price range. I guess the only thing the one I got is missing is the saw. I kinda wanted that. Not sure what I'd use it for though.

Anyway, that's about all I have to talk about right now.
bye!!! hehe

I have never been one to take myself too seriously. I try not to contemplate the past anymore than I really have to other than maybe thinking about my late grandmother or wondering what happened to an old friend.

Fortunately, most of this year has been worth remembering and hopefully interesting enough to blog about. Well, I'm going to do it anyway.

I mean... heck I should be proud. In the course of 6 months I've stopped drinking, stopped smoking, stopped partaking in herbal refreshment (heh heh), cut meat almost entirely out of my diet, started cooking nice things for myself, started at least TRYING to manage my diabetes, got the papers to sign up for college (which I'm going to get some help filling out), fell completely and totally in love, found God again and started reading my bible and praying every day.

Aside from that, I got back in touch with my own beliefs and have started trying my best to live by them. I've tried to save profanity for when I'm really really mad, I stopped trying to dress to impress others, I embraced my own beliefs on love and family again and genuinely began respecting myself more.

Most importantly, thru the help of some of these wonderful people that have come into my life, I realized that there are still good people in the world that don't want to live life for this second. I found that there are still actually young people that bow their heads and pray. There are people that still obey, respect, and try to take care of their mother and father and plan their life around having a family of their own. There are still places in the world where morals haven't completely been flushed down the toilet. Knowing this is good for my heart.

Now if you're an old friend of mine and are reading this, don't think I've become all high and mighty and judgmental. You can still be my friend if you wanna do things I don't. Just don't expect me to come along for the ride. I'm thankful for knowing that just because someone does something bad doesn't make them bad and for the most important bit of knowledge I've picked up... Though I've always heard it, I've never taken it seriously.

FOLLOW YOUR HEART - It will usually lead you in the right direction.

Hope that wasn't a boring pile of crap. I haven't written in a while.
