    Ohhhhhhhh... Finally got a response from the person handling adoptions after texting earlier this morning... she passed my number onto the foster mom who "will probably call today." She took on the blame saying their big fundraiser is next week and she's been busy. I then found out from our friend, who she called as one of our references, that when his cat started meowing during their phone call, she pushed him about adopting a second cat. Don't 🤬 push adoptions on people if you don't have time to process them!!

    Yes, and that's a possiblity - when I called them for my cats records, Ihad to call 3 times before they were actually sent to me. However, the woman running the adoptions told me Wed morning our application was approved and she'd "be in touch". If information was missing, she should have let me know, not leave me hangingfor a few days. I'm going to follow up now, but I have a feeling I'll be backing out at this point.

    Most rescues I come across want employer information and 3 personal references. Which is a hassle, but I get they want to make sure the pet gets take care of. I might take a look at craigslist now...

    It's a nationwide thing, I think. I know they are having one at one of the Chicago shelters. I also know the rescue I'm dealing with now has another event this Saturday because they have enough time to post on the Facebook page everyday... (but not enough time to process my adoption...)

    True, but there are 4 other rescues in the area I can think of off the top of my head, and Im sure there's more that I don't know of. I wouldn't buy, definitely want to rescue from a shelter. Plus, I know two of those rescues house pets at Petsmart and I know for a fact I can walk in, pick one of those cats, and walk out within minutes. I don't feel like this process needs to, or should, take all week.

    Very cute!! When did you go look and when did you get him? Nick and I looked at a cat Sunday and I put in my application online and sent an email Monday morning. I got a text (no call or response to my email) Wednesday morning that my application was approved, but haven't heard anything since. I kind of feel like canceling because why is it taking so long and it's unprofessional to just text and not respond to my email all week... or are my hormones making me impatient and bitchy?

    Yep. It helped for a little bit, but the extra pillows made me feel like I was in a squishy oven. This dumb dog too... Nick worked a month straight, including weekends, so now the dog thinks I'm his person. I've been the one giving him food, water, and letting him out. Now he sleeps on the floor next to my side of the bed. Just what I need, a 150lb, dark shadow laying there to trip me up everytime I try to roll out of bed. And yes, I really have to "roll" around to get in and out of bed now... 🙄

    I'm gonna have words with the next person who jokingly tells me, "enjoy your sleep while you can before the baby gets here!!" I wake up 4-5 times a night to pee, get cramps in my legs all night long, and because I can only sleep on my left or right sides, my hips become pretty sore, so I'm constantly flipping around. Also, I'm always hot now, and am only comfortable when it's 66 or below. People should have been saying, "enjoy your sleep for the first half of pregnancy, cause after that, you're f*ed!!"

    Which is why I only have 3 fish between my two tanks! I wish I'd been able to build my own without it ending up so bulky. The APS stand is pretty sturdy though.

    Halp!! I noticed a bit of water pooling under the wash machine two days ago, and figured it was probably just a loose hose. Nick finally had time to pull it out to take a closer look. The hose looked ok, so he tipped it to check out the bottom. Well, we heard sloshing and about a gallon of dirty grey colored water leaked out, so he set it back down right away. He only lifted the side of it 2-3 inches off the floor, it's not like it was tipped completely on it's side. We're thinking its so old that it just rusted out - theres visible rust on the inside of the lid, around the tub rim, and by the "pour bleach here" corner there's a crack thats rusting as well. Not that we want to be spending to get a new washer, but that's probably what needs to be done, right?
