Vibrant Love and Worm Poop











































Its been another crazy week behind me. Two days of intense pediatric life support training and testing and then yet another house escapade. This one involved an amazing Internet find. It was looking like one was going to get auctioned off for super cheap. I was ecstatic! This might be the big break I was waiting for! I went to the court house and got a print off. Then I went to a few title companies and checked with a few banks. After driving around sleuthing out this upcoming repo and stopping umpteen places, I finally found out that the secondary mortgage company was planning to bid 97,000 for the property. I wasn't surprised, but still, it was yet another dead end....... At least I learned about the process. I have done nothing but learn real estate since this all began.......



The other escapade involved me with my cell phone in a certain aisle of a local feed store. It seems that our dear sweet Miss Libby......




HAS WORMS!! (horror music imagination please)




My husband said they looked like "earth worms". Frazzled after the intensive testing, the only thing I could think of was to call my dependable "Saphara".... and have her Google W-O-R-M-S. She was not at all thrilled about this proposition........To make matters worse, Super Catman was having grave concerns about his lesson plan for the day and was wanting to dispute certain elements of his lesson plan, namely the hard subjects ;-) Chaos erupted over the line as I stood helplessly and blankly staring at half a dozen "wormers". "Ewww" said Saphara "these are disturbing". "C'mon -I'm standing here and people are starting to avoid me widely!" I begged. Passers by kept their distance as we discussed shapes and color of the parasite in question. When it was all said and done, I bought the combination kind since we couldn't make a definitive diagnosis.
The more I thought about it, the more I kept seeing the awful things in my head. Soon I was applying the concept of the parasitic condition to everything around me......


Real Estate parasites........


emotional parasites in my head.....


parasites in my dogs intestines.....


worms worms worms EVERYWHERE!! UGH!!!


Right underneath my nose they lived and multiplied. Here I had that sweet puppy on my lap kissing her like she was a child and she was full of them - yuck! When we got home my husband said "Here's Libby and company". I was puzzled, then it dawned on me who her company was... UGH!!
Before dawn the next morning, Miss Libby had her first "treatment". Then I sent her outside. From now on she was only allowed to be in her kennel or outdoors. No more laying around the house till this horrid thing had passed. At noon the kids came in to announce that I needed to promptly return her to the pound. There were piles of thick worm infested doo doo where they were attempting to make snow people and they were greatly disturbed. I didn't blame them when I went out to shovel. IT WAS SICK!! Gingerly I scooped some of the "Evidence" into a container to bring to the vet. Later on when we went for a walk, I was horrified to see that alive and well white ugly worms were making their exit from a warm pile of her feces. I thought I might pass out. Scenarios played out in my mind of my glasses falling off into the wormy doodoo along with a host of other horrors. I began to wonder if I would get through this with my sanity intact. Somehow I did......


Despite all those horror movie scenes, GOOD THINGS OCCURRED TOO. The day before my birthday my husband came home with a bouquet of tulips. I admit, I hinted to him that I liked tulips.... I did this rather inconspicuously when I made sure he was in the room and loudly announced "I like tulips". I did it because I do, indeed, like tulips. I like daffodils too. Spring flowers are sweet. I was also thinking that maybe I would save him some money the next time he decided to buy me flowers. He always buys me a dozen roses and spends a fortune on them. Its really really sweet.... and extravagant. Anyhow, when he came in the night before my birthday with a bunch of tulips, it made my night. I smiled and couldn't possibly let go of him. After he finally pried himself away, I went upstairs to put them in a vase. Just when I'd cut the plastic wrap off of them, I heard something behind me. I turned around and there he was again..... with a dozen of the most beautiful, vibrant, orange roses you've ever seen! My heart melted..... It was so so very sweet..... I put the beautiful bouquet of tulips and roses on the table in awe. It was certainly the most beautiful arrangement of flowers I have ever possessed - a "10" on the WOW FACTOR for sure. The next day everyone was gone and working. I was okay with it. That bouquet made me feel special. The day after that, when my birthday was forgotten and over, I was about to head out running with Miss Saphara. My husband stopped me, informing me that he was taking me out for lunch when I got back. Again, it was totally unexpected. He took me out and treated me special. He said we were going to get pizzas for dinner and my party afterward. My daughter was making me a cake. Turned out it was no ordinary cake. On the contrary, no bakery could hold a candle to the extraordinary, elaborate, incredibly dense, decadent, rich chocolate, strawberry and cream cheese magnificence. When my husband wanted too many pizzas ordered, I knew something was up. Turns out he'd even invited our friends to celebrate as a surprise. Selah. What an amazing birthday it turned out to be. As we all sat around that table enjoying the festivities, I couldn't stop looking at that beautiful, vibrant bouquet of delicate tulips interwoven with the strong, brilliant orange roses. It just spoke volumes to me. I smiled, feeling grateful for my husband, and thinking we were something along those lines...........

OH it hard to believe all the problems you've been having finding a house :o( I hope that the perfect house 'lands in your lap' soon. As for the worms, that is gross, poor dog. I've heard of dogs having worms, but never had it with any of mine, thank goodness!
