First Birthday Party Success

The party turned out great despite the fact that I forgot to put out the sour cream and guacamole. Amsister came to my rescue and helped me out with the cooking and setting up, while Dave and Niknik finished up the decorating. We were a bit late on the schedule, but what do you expect? We live stateside, but we were programmed since before we were born with the Guam-time motto. If the party is scheduled to start at a certain time, you arrive or start the party two hours later.

Tacos, pizza, and fruity nachos. Yum.

We had fun. The kids had fun. The food was good. The company was great. We didn’t get to do all that I wanted, and the company started to depart before we could open the presents, but it was still great.

Despite the success, I’m not doing this again for a long time. It was way too much for one person to handle. I got lucky Ams was there to help me sprint to the finish.

On that note, Mom Auayan likes Ams. She senses that Ams is a good person. I agree. Besides, mom’s never wrong when it comes to first impressions.

Tomorrow is Maeby’s actual birthday. She will have a cake all to herself. It’s a soy chocolate cake. It looks tasty.

Pictures from today and tomorrow will be up soon. Promise.

Cat Fight

cat_fight.jpg

Yesterday Lorelai was running around being crazy while I was putting clothes in the washer. She had just ran right past me when all of a sudden she just started crying. At first I thought she was just being her usual silly self crying for my attention, but she didn’t come looking for me and the crying got louder really quick. The kicker was when there was a long pause. You know the one. The one where the kid is crying so hard that no sound comes out for a few seconds and the only thing you can think about is “Breathe! Please breathe!”. That was my thoughts as I ran around the corner to find out what happened.

Miss Kitty has been a bit cranky lately. Probably because of a hair ball building up inside of her. She’s been running around the apartment like a bat out of hell. Scratching the couches, running through the blinds, and bouncing small toys off the walls. She’s reached out and clawed me a couple of times as I was passing by her.

I didn’t actually see what happened, but I’m thinking the baby ran over to her and she freaked out. In only a second, Miss Kitty defended herself from her attacker. Now she’s got the battle wounds to prove it. Blood smeared all over her face and I couldn’t see exactly where it was coming from. I grabbed her and ran to the bathroom to wash it off. That was when I saw what happened. Her precious little face had been scratched. Her left cheek and around her mouth. She even got her hand scratched.

This brings me to a hard decision. The baby is fine and she is now acting like nothing ever happened. The problem is, every time I see the scratches on her face, I’m not fine. What if it had been an eye? Do I wait around and hope it doesn’t happen? Or do I do something about the cat? What do I do about the cat if I decide to do something?

I refuse to de-claw her because the process is so inhumane. Dave told me that they don’t just pull out her claws, but actually cut off a part of her little toes. Can you imagine getting your finger cut off up to the first knuckle? That’s what they do to de-claw a cat.

So, my choices are to either keep her and hope that she never hurts the baby more than she already has or give her away. I’ve actually been thinking about this for a long time, but I’m having a bit of a problem. Both Dave and Nikisha love Miss Kitty, as do I. Dave refuses to allow me to give her away. So I’m stuck not knowing what to do.

Head Injury

Today Niki got her first injury at school.

She brought home a note explaining what happened, what they did, and how she felt.

“Nikisha fell down while trying to get the ball at kickball. We put ice on Nikisha’s head for 15 to 20 minutes in the clinic. She felt good & wanted to go back to class.” ~ the School Nurse

They included some symptoms to look out for and should said symptoms occur, we should contact her doctor or emergency room physician.

She’s fine, so don’t worry. Just thought I’d share with you all the news.

mind slave.

i feel like a robot. putting on a face, just so no one will worry about me. i try to be happy, it’s slipping. suicide pours into my head and i can’t help it. i’m scared to drive a car by myself because everytime i do i imagine myself flooring it and going head on into a car, or a little off the road into a telephone pole. sometimes i even think about jumping out the door seeing my face grind against the pavement. i don’t want to live anymore. someone save me from myself.

Wishful job hunting

Lately, I’ve been searching the job listings looking for a part time job I can do when Dave’s at home. It’s not just for the money, I hope you know. We need insurance for the girls, which we don’t have because we are no longer getting state assistance. I also have this need to work. I can’t stand NOT working because it makes me antsy. I guess you can call me a workaholic. I’ve ‘officially’ worked since I was 14, which is over 13 years ago, but I’ve been doing odd jobs for family since I was 8. I used to eat up overtime like it was candy and hated when I didn’t get enough.

I’ve also been considering getting a full time job because it’ll help us out more. Problem is, I’d have to put the girls in a daycare because I don’t know anyone who could babysit in-home. I don’t want to hire just some random person to babysit, and I’d have to do some serious researching to find a daycare I can trust. It’s hard to consider and is a very scary subject.

I’ve seen a lot of jobs I might be able to do. I’ve also seen a few jobs I’m PERFECT for. I just found out that Wizards (of the Coast) is hiring a temp Administrative Assistant and they are asking me if I want the job. Problem is, I can’t just apply because if I got the job, I wouldn’t know what to do about my girls.

So, you can see why I’m getting frustrated that I can’t work, right? Anyone want to help me figure this whole thing out.

TO ALL MY GRANDDAUGHTERS

First of all I want you to know that I love you all so very much. I hope I am around when you go on your first date. Preparing for a date can be quite nerve-wracking, even for the most mature of individuals. Here are some guide lines to to help you:

1. MAKE SURE YOU KNOW HIM WELL ENOUGH TO GO ON A DATE WITH HIM

2. Make sure dad & mom like him. If they don’t something is wrong with him. Parents know.

3. Let them know where your going and what time you will be home. Parents, will tell you the time to be home….

4. Don’t be late coming home. Parents get REALLY REALLY worried. If you are going to be late ie flat tire CALL HOME, let them know.

5. Always know if for any reason you need a ride home, phone home. Your parents will pick you up. Know matter what.

6. Where something that is nice. Not to sexy. Sexy clothes give guys wrong ideas.

7. Make sure the place you go, you will enjoy too.

8. Holding hands are okay, only if you want too.

9. If he wants a kiss, only on the cheek. He will respect you more. If not, he is not worth going on a second date.

10. Last but not least, have fun…..

P/S Our family can add to this if they want.

Love, Grandma Auayan
