If it weren’t for bad luck I’d have absofreakinlutely no luck at all.

We finally got a pet! A cat, actually. You may have read my post before about adopting her. Her name is Maya. She’s beautiful & I adore her. We actually got her from her foster mom on Saturday & she’s been adapting to the Amityville house quite gracefully.

So, at this point you’re sitting there thinking, Brenna, what’s up with the title? Everything sounds totally hunky dory in your world!

Here we go: Apparently, I’m allergic to cats. Wait. Yea. You totally read that right. I’m seriously no joke allergic to my precious new-found buddy. I had no idea, obviously. I’d been around cats my entire childhood & never had any issues. My father in law has a cat currently & I’ve never noticed anything strange around him. But, if Maya starts licking me, I break out. Like, large red itchy bumps. Swelling. Its terrible.

However, we’ve decided to keep her. I’m already in love with her. She’s my snuggle bunny. But if you guys have any suggestions, please do let me know. Also, I’ll take pics of her because I know you guys are dying to see!

You know its time to get a therapist when…

Here are the indications that my week is slowly going downhill:

  • I’ve worn the same pajama pants to take J-Bird to work every morning so far this week.
  • I managed to wash my car on Monday, only to have it covered in mud (from the “parking spot” in my yard) & pollen (because I don’t get a carport like my roommate) on Tuesday.
  • Monday night my left eye randomly started swelling up.
  • The last bullet point lead to me having to wear my 5-year-old glasses all day yesterday (they’re hot pink, as icing on the cake).
  • I haven’t slept in 3 nights. Partly, though, because of the nightly thunderstorms we’ve been having.
  • I literally can’t stop watching episodes of The Walking Dead.
  • I’ve officially tried to convince J-Bird to move to Mexico & Georgia. I don’t know, either.
  • I still haven’t left the bed today. Or showered.
  • Wait, its only Wednesday?

You may not get another post this week,
