My animals have gotten so high-maintenance I'm thinking about having kids...

Ok...totally kidding. I'm not thinking about having kids but at this rate, why not? I took Macee to the vet yesterday afternoon because she had been itching so badly. We have already been old she has allergies but it was getting out. of. control! My poor baby was scratching so bad that her hair was getting matted. So, I took her the vet when I took Sammie to get her shots. I talked to the vet and Macee got a little steroid shot to make her feel better. But  you'll never believe what it was -- She had a flea! She has never had fleas and my four-year-old Jack Russell has only had them once. So the vet did a check and she only found one flea on her...thank goodness. But she said that that one tiny little flea could be what's been making her itch so bad. 

Look how miserable she was...my poor honey.


So, armed with flea-killing medicine, shampoo and $120 and three shots later, we went  home. Macee crashed for like 3  hours straight and then was back to her pre-flea self. The vet said she was probably so lethargic because she wasn't sleeping all night because was up scratching. 

Seriously?

After the vet drama was over we watched Marley and Me to remind me how much I love my dogs and all the stress and money are so worth it.

I'm sure you all remember that I told you B's cousin was staying with us so we also went to Target to pick up a cake for her birthday last night. Seriously, can you go to Target without spending at least $100? I don't think I've ever done it. But we did get some really cute damask prink plates and napkins for the housewarming party this weekend. Tonight I need to do a little bit more shopping and my dad is going to help me set up some extra tables and chairs outside. We are getting so excited to show everyone our house! I will give you guys a first taste of our little open house as well and I'll finally post some pics of the house either tomorrow or Monday.

I'm getting so excited for Vegas next week! This month has flown by! I can't believe it!

I totally feel your pain! I dropped $145 on one of my cats today and we found out that the flea medicine we used on her can actually cause death! Are you kidding me?! If it can kill my poor cat then why the hell is it being sold! AND it didn't even kill the fleas! Ugh!! What a huge pain in the ass...but their precious little faces make it worth it!
