I Did A Thing

Okay, we have all seen Pinterest by now. I am sure like me you have all tried and failed at several very interesting Pinterest ideas. Let's be honest with ourselves, they make it look way too easy most of the time. I know I have picked one or two DIY crafts thinking "this will be a piece of cake" and scrapping it half way through because I realized whoever created it on Pinterest was obviously a DIY Home Network Pro.  I could list my Pinterest failures but today I decided to list just one of my successes.

Have any of you seen the play house makeovers? Pinterest has been flooded with them the last few months and I vowed that if I found a used playhouse for the right price (or free) I would snag it and spruce the thing up. Well, my time came. I found a playhouse for cheap that had been collecting dirt, dust and spiders in someones yard for a few years. A neighbor helped me go pick it up and my two day project began.

I paid $40.00 for the playhouse (I tried but could NOT get the person to come down on the price).
I purchased $30.00 in supplies.

Total Spent: 70.00

This particular playhouse brand new is priced at $170.00. (And still ugly brand new).

Here are the before and after photos:

My daughter LOVES it and for a kid that plays outside all the time (seriously, she never wants to play inside) the remodel was worth every single cent.

Hiatus Over & Why I Was Gone So Long

I am going to sum up my hiatus with one adorable picture:

No, I wasn't just distracted by his cuteness. This little dude suffered a terrible spinal injury while being micro-chipped. No one was at fault. The accident was simply a freak accident. Tragic, but rare and totally a freak thing. Surgery was done and I can say he is recovering well. But, his healing process is a long one and I have never worked with or rehabilitated a partially paralyzed animal before. This is a first for me and I am learning so much.  My shelter is so lucky to have such an amazing and talented vet staff.

I also want to thank the human mom of Waverly McTinybeans for all her advice and taking the time to give it. I know she is a super busy lady and I appreciated every tip.

I have spoken to multiple vets, RVT's and watched every youtube video I could find to help give this guy the best physical therapy I am able. He starts acupuncture sessions next week and little by little he makes progress. His left si…

#Writemotivation Week 1 Update

It is that time again! I missed March =(, but I am back with a vengeance for May! Here are my goals for this month:

I have been fostering these two adorable house panthers since they were two weeks old. At around four weeks of age I started to noticed something wrong with the little male's left eye.

I contacted my foster coordinator who had me bring him in so our in house vet could take a look at him. She was a bit baffled at what could be causing it so we tested him for various illnesses/cat diseases and they all came back negative. At four weeks old there isn't a lot we could do except wait and see what happened and how the eye developed. After another week I could tell he didn't seem to have vision in that eye and slowly the entire eye globe started to swell. Well, I woke up last Tuesday morning to this:
The vet had me bring him back in and it was apparent the eye would need to be removed. We did not know if it could be a tumor or glaucoma or what the heck the poor little dude had going on. The only issue was that he was tiny and only 1.5 lbs. Typically it isn't that great to do …
