Bahaha I've never been fly fishing...i only go fishing with my dad and I make him take the fish off because I don't want my hands to smell like fish!

I remember the last time my sister went with us ( I think she was 11 so I was 8) my dad asked her to hold his hook while he took care of mine and she ended up catching one...as soon as she felt it tug she started crying and ran off! It was great!


...but your catching them to eat...so theyre going to die....and you don't want to hurt em??o_O haha

This may be a graphic description:

I don't want to tear their mouths open, I rather do minimal damage but I cannot because the hook is always really finicky and I end up making it worse. I rather it be done by someone that can take the hook off easily.

7/13/12

Made pork spare ribs (own marinade with sambol olec, ketchup, mustard, worchestershire sauce, and orange marmalade) paired with mashed potatoes (with cayenne and garlic and butter of course :))

It's really good apparently, mom is making all sorts of happy moaning noises bahaha

Today I woke up really late (2pm) cause of staying up being restless last night. Project got approved so I can work on recording the actual presentation now.

My eye is better :) And I'm feeling better despite being sore as EVER. It's hard to get up because my lower back is hurting from exercise :P I didn't hurt it, just worked those muscles and haven't done so since Feb when I was riding!!

My abs aren't sore at all.. I have good abs. Everything else (including my hind end) is though!

Saddle didn't fit Sky.. :( But we're still on the hunt for a good'un.

I start work Monday! And I get a hair cut tomorrow. No clue what I'll be getting done....

Anyway wanted to offer an update.

Hope you're all well :)

I miss Sky like crazy. Family is driving me mental... cannot wait till I can go riding :)

7/14/12

At 11am I got my hair cut :) And Sky got his salt and ate it all! WOO! So happy :)

No word yet about his blood panel or how much the vet visit cost (probably a lot lol...)

I have a question for you all though: If you've ever had blood drawn, does it leave scars?

I had a traumatic experience.. I couldn't bleed and they had to whip out the baby needle and finally it began to pour out (after 4 stabs later :( urgh) but now I have a strange bunch of scars at the drawing site almost a year later. Is that normal???

For future blood drawing, they're going to have to slice me open. Never having that needle and no bleeding experience again.

I start in two days!!! And absolutely no motivation to do any sort of project work today. I have 3 days to turn it in so I'm going to take today off because I am so exhausted from my lack of sleep. Last night I slept really well but only for a short 5 hours since I was up till 3am :/

What else... hmm... I can't stop yawning and my eyes haven't stopped watering (they're sensitive haha) and mom has been talking to her friend on the phone for over 40 mins *sigh*

I'm going to go eat something. I had a piece of leftover steak and cheese pie about... 4 hours ago?

Toodles and take care!

I think getting my blood drawn is so fascinating. I like it, people call me crazy But I've never gotten scars.. I think that's a bit weird.

I haven't been able to fall asleep until after midnight lately, so I'm on my laptop forever :/ No more insomnia! >:(

Yay for two more days, though! Get some sleep for it ;)

They always struggle to draw my blood but the scars generally go after 6 weeks for me.

Cheese pie? Steak? Now I'm really hungry!!

Some people are more prone to scarring than others. I have seen some wicked scars from iv drug users! If I drew your blood Sky I certainly wouldn't have tried four times. How traumatic! If I say so myself, I am quite good at iv and blood drawing. Sadly, it's not a skill all of my co-workers have been able to acquire so easily. I can feel your pain with insomnia as I don't get a good sleep till I am on my days off as I work a 2 day 2 night 12 hr shift rotation. The best thing about it is that I can spend more time off during the week with my horses on this type of schedule.

Yes it was very traumatic. The guy that I was assigned to do it was a big male nurse and he really jabbed the needle in my inner elbow really hard and when I didn't bleed and then a few other people came in and took their turns trying to get blood. It was awful lol. Completely discouraged me.

That sounds so traumatizing about your blood removing fiasco... I had blood drawn once but it was super uneventful, apparently I have monster veins...?
What was Sky getting blood drawn for? I seem to have missed it... :(
