All Work and No Play...

Well it turns out Taryn lost the baby. She was having problems, and when she went in for an ultrasound, there was no heartbeat. The baby had stopped developing. So she had to have surgery. Even though I am relieved for her in the sense that she wasn't prepared for a baby, I'm also really sad, and worried about her. The same thing happened to Jenna this past summer, and she was devastated. Granted, she and Justin have been trying to have another baby for a while, and that wasn't her first miscarriage. I just know it can sometimes take a while for it to sink in. But Taryn seems to be doing fine. She and Dahmer are apparently still together (ugh) and she says he's been great, but now that they don't have a baby coming, we'll see how long that lasts...

I've been keeping busy with work, but I'm awfully lonely here most of the time. Other than my family, and Bethany, I don't know anybody here, and my job isn't exactly conducive to making friends, which is unfortunate. Somehow I gotta get myself out there and meeting people. Any ideas? Oh yea, I've also adopted a cat, so my transition into full-blown cat lady is finally beginning. Although I must say, I'm not a cat person. I mean I adopted for the right reasons, and Jasper seems to enjoy having some company when I'm gone. His fascination with Hobbes (cat) is infinite. But Hobbes and I haven't really...bonded. And sometimes he's mean to Jasper for no reason, which pisses me off. Like, Jasper will be laying on the bed, minding his own business, then Hobbes will jump up and bite him! For no reason! And then Jasper jumps down cuz he's scared, the big baby. Any of you cat people have experience with this? How long does it take to feel bonded with a cat?? I mean, I love all animals, don't get me wrong, I just feel like I've learned something about myself. And that is that I am not a cat person. But he's mine now and it's not like I'm going to take him back to the shelter just because we haven't totally hit it off. Maybe it will get better with time? ((Sigh))

Well I'm heading to Houston for Thanksgiving this year. I get to meet Dad's new girlfriend. Yay. (Can you sense the sarcasm?) Other than that, I don't really have much news. God, when did my life become so...boring?!

I love reading about your life and the dog and cat things is funny I have one of each and it takes a bit for them to get use to each other maybe a month or two but once they do its a great combination. They will try to bite the other when the want to play (even when the other is sleeping) its really cute.
I have been through the miscarrage thing and it super hard and never goes away but then again my sister has been through it too and she seems to deal better them me. Each is different.
I recently because single too and need help meeting new people! One thing someone told me is just to go everywhere you are invited to because you never know. Even if its work people just go!

Sorry to hear about your friend. She just needs all the support she can get. Keep checking up on her, that's all. If you're lonely and want to catch up with some long distance friends, why not try a skype-movie date? You and your friend start watching a movie at the same time, different locations, and then you can chat and comment throughout over skype. Then you can also stay home and watch the pets! Also, cats take time. Bribe it with catnip and cat treats.
