Headed Home

I've spent the last 4 1/2 days in Fargo and it was awesome to see everyone. It is always bittersweet to have to wrap up the good times and head back to everyday life. I wish there was a way to make everyone just a little closer so I could visit more often. Tomorrow I'm waking up at 5:30 to make my way back to Michigan. I've bought a new suitcase while I've been here and have managed to fill it with lots of presents and goodies!

Turkey Day

I'm in Fargo for Thanksgiving this year, which so far has been really nice. My dad and stepmom flew in to meet halfway and we have been having a fun time seeing old friends and family. I called Mike to check in on how his holiday was and we had the most bizarre conversation. He took the cats with him to his parents house 6 hours away from ours. It was either that, or pay to have someone give Chico a shot twice a day. Today when I called to see how his Thanksgiving was he told me good, but that the cats were starting to get a little "freaked out" everytime they went into a car. Well, I told him they shouldn't be freaked out still, they got there yesterday afternoon. That is true, but apparently he took them to his granparents house for the bit Turkey Day and fed Chico turkey and Henley some roll. This from a man who "hates" the cats...I think not.

Just a few more classes...

I was scheduled to only have one more class, however I have made the decision to add a second major onto my schedule and will have a few more classes to finish. I will now be done with school in June with a double major in business management and marketing. Yeah! The end is near.

Chico Update

Well after a difficult six weeks of insulin injections, special food, glucose monitoring and a whole lot of money, I am happy to announce that Chico's diabetes is under control! Mike and I spent the entire day at home again yesterday checking Chico's glucose levels (which is not fun, if I haven't said so yet...imagine trying to take blood from a tiny little vein in a cat's ear...yeah). After talking with the vet today, she is happy with where he is at and advised us he'll need a check in three months at their office, and if that is still o.k., he won't need to be checked again for a year! It is a huge relief for me. Although we still have to continue his injections, we won't have to bring him in so often for tests, or wonder if he is healthy. He is doing well, and the time, money and effort were worth it. I firmly believe that if you take on the responsibility of an animal, you should take care of whatever it is comes your way to the best of your ability.
