I’ve been blogging a lot the past few days. I’m not overly sure why. I guess I just have something to say? Or is that answer too obvious?
We have new pets. Besides the rat.
Let’s talk about the rat. S/he (too early to tell) is a tiny little thing. Roughly the size of a mouse. Another mouth to feed but we love her anyways. She is a sweet little thing. Thomas has rediscovered love. Seeing as how the old men rats want nothing to do with him, I guess new love is a plus.
Fish. Wait. Beginning. Roughly every year the boys get a check from my paternal Grandmother. She sends them about a week after Christmas so that it doesn’t count as Christmas money because she doesn’t celebrate Christmas due to her religion. Whatever, that’s fine. But the check showed up a few days ago. Now there is no real intent for this check. If the boys have a need, we take care of it. If there is no immediate need, we let them have a little fun. This year there are no immediate needs so we went with fun.
Slowly one by one the fish in our tank have been dying. It happens. I blame the angry zebra. We were down to two. The boys were a little disgruntled with this. We all enjoy a tank full of fish. It’s peaceful. So Pat took Tomas to the local pet store and bought some new filters for the fish tanks and three koi. Well, two of them are some weird type of kio that I’m not sure on spelling or pronunciation. The third is an actual koi. It’s about 3 inches long counting tail. They are pretty and hard to kill so we are happy with them. Meanwhile we have a very angry Zebra fish who is use to being the biggest in the tank and picking on all the other fish, who is now the smallest. He is avoiding the kio.
I had that job phone interview today. I’m honestly not sure how it went. I can’t tell over the phone. I was told I’d hear back in a few days so I guess I’m just waiting it out.
The name game is over. We have settled on a name we are both thrilled with. So even if I’m not pregnant, wait roughly 6 months to a year and I will be.
As for the am I aren’t I, I’ll know tomorrow. Blood got drawn today, doctor gets the results in the morning. No call means not pregnant, they will call if I am. I can call them regardless if I get antsy. I’m expecting my cycle to start in the middle of the night (when it always starts) like nothing happened.
It has just been realized by Pat that one of the not a koi, kois is a girl and one is a boy. He didn’t notice one had a smaller tail. I pointed out the difference in asking which one was Max. (Thomas is bound ands determined to name something Max.) So I guess now we know. The actual Koi is Charley, and the snail (they got a snail free) is Charleytoo (not to be confused with Charleytwo). We are now proud members of the fish of the month club which means we get a free fish every month. Which we have enough fish with the koi, but I’m sure we’ll end up with a Charleyalso, Charleymaybe and Charleysometimes one after another because that’s how we go through snails. Which generally since they breed with themselves they are hard to get rid of, but we can’t keep them alive. Yet we have one angry Zebra that is like 4 years old. And a Molly. We lost many Mollies, among other fish, but one of our mated mollies survived to tell many a tale.
