Frantic Life

So, I failed my photo challenge. 
There was just no way I could keep up with the frantic rush of the Christmas season, 
the multiple illnesses the Brat Child had, 
my own health issues, 
the dog's ongoing mystery illness, 
the cat's UTI, 
normal life and all its demands,
 taking specific photos 
and blogging. 

So, here are the photos I did take:
 Ok, so I didn't take this, my sister did 
(that's her front and center with me to the left, 
my mom to the right and my daughter in the back), 
and it was taken on Thanksgiving, 
 but it was going to be my photo for "Family".
 This is Bailey getting one of her regular baths with medicated shampoo.
Since August, Bailey has had a mysterious skin issue where she looses her hair
and scratches until she has open sores which then develop into skin infections.
We are on possible diagnosis #3: food allergy. 
I now get her meds at the Pharmacy-
the name reads "Bailey J. dog of Jamie"
 This is Gibbs the cat.
Here he is shown playing dead 
waiting for an unsuspecting Vet Tech to enter the room
so he can attack them.
He went from love bug to rabid jaguar in 6 seconds.
After attacking the tech and me, 
he prowled the room continuously
hissing and growling and swiping at whatever got in his way.
He had a UTI, easy enough to fix with pills.
Ever try to give a rabid jaguar pills?
 This is Gibbs hiding from getting his pills.
He learned to keep the pills in the side of his mouth
so I thought they had been swallowed,
then he's spit them out in the hallway.
Now I crush them up and mix them with canned food.
So far he doesn't suspect.
 A photo from Valley View Farms in Baltimore.
It has every ornament imaginable
even some you can't imagine.
 Christmas Day and the Brat Child with one of his favorite gifts.
 A shot of one of my favorite gifts- the game Quelf.
If you want a night full of hysterical laughing,
play this game.

So those are the photos I managed to snap this month.
Will I manage to do the January Challenge?
Who knows.
I'll make an effort, but I'm not going to make it seem like a chore
or worry about getting it done.

  1. Wow, a lot going on,. I confess to chuckling at your expense at the description of the jaguar who needed pills. I can totally relate. Also, my dog has the same allergy. I've finally put him on no-grain (read: VERY EXPENSIVE) dog food and it has helped a great deal.
