What happened this week?
This week was filled with worrying, stress and emotions. Thuesday we went to a vet with Snickers, our rat. We went to a different vet then we went so far, to see if the differences. It felt off from the moment we stepped inside there, so we got our consult (that vet didn’t tell us anything we didn’t know yet) and then told him we would think about the surgery. It just felt really shady there, the prices where cheap, but that was the only good thing. There didn’t seem to be any other customers and he kept saying that there was a risk our rat wouldn’t survive the surgery, ofcourse there is always a risk, but he kept focussing on this. I kept thinking that maybe he never did surgery on a rat before. We weren’t sure whether to have the surgery or not and what to do, so we thought and talked about that a lot. And then decided to first get some more information from another vet.
Then the next day I e-mailed our previous vet and send them pictures of Snickers. She confirmed it was indeed a tumor and that it probably would be easily removeable. I felt much better after hearing a much more professional opinion. We decided to have the surgery for Snickers and I made an appointment for the surgery next theusday. I just hope everything goes alright next week with the surgery. I can’t stand the thought of losing her.
So I worry about her a lot and haven’t been sleeping well. One day I was really tired and after going to bed early I felt a bit better again. And when I told my mom about Snickers having a tumor one of the first things she asked how expensive a new rat is. Okay so mom is not an animal person, not by any stretch of the imagination, but still that questions was just insensetive. I don’t want a new rat I want our Snickers! Okay so I didn’t answer her question and acted like I didn’t read it.
My sister was doing her birthday part this saturday, she asked me to make peanut butter cups. So I made three times the normal recipe, one portion for ourselves and two portions for her birthday party.
I plan on making peanu butter cups again in a week or two and will feature them as a recipe post on my blog then 🙂

Show loyalty. Be willing to go deep into the gritty underbelly of the world, where the vilest acts of human carnage thrive and seep into your mind like a black poison, consuming every part of you that was once good. Ignore your dark cravings and keep to the most important rule of all: never save the mortals.
This is the life of a Sentinel.
Some call us the toughest angels in the heavens. Unbreakable. But even the strong can break in the face of temptation.
Human females have always been the forbidden fruit for our kind—an enticement I’ve resisted for centuries, until she came along.
Karinna lusts for vengeance.
She wants inside the darkness, where the Fallen own the corrupted streets of Detroit—the perfect bait to take down the biggest crime ring the city has ever known.
I want her. To have her, though, I’ll have to break the rules.
For one taste of the forbidden, I’ll have to commit the most heinous sin of all …
**Not recommended for readers under the age of 18 due to graphic violence, sex and strong language.
The Weather Girl

Turbulence is in their forecast
Summer Raines knows when it’s going to rain. She can feel it. That’s why the local weather girl’s so good at her job. Too bad she couldn’t have foreseen the tumultuous arrival of Travis Lockwood, everybody’s favorite star NFL quarterback. Make that former star NFL quarterback. Sidelined back to Texas after an injury, the golden boy is trying to steal her precious on-air time. Summer is reduced to reporting from…football games. It’s enough to make her quit and become a storm-chaser like her parents. She’s stuck with a career that’s going nowhere and a man who delights in her refusal to be charmed. Falling in love isn’t nearly as easy as predicting the weather.
