If you don't like the sight of blood...

then don't continue reading any further. 

It was not a normal morning. I got Indy and Emerson off to school, went to get back in bed to read my scriptures when I got a text from Indy. He said there was a deer stuck in our neighbor's fence.  I actually thought he meant across the street. Well, he meant our next door neighbor. And the fence is right outside our garage side door. 

It was not a pretty picture. The deer was still alive. It didn't impale itself. It was obviously jumping over the fence but its back leg didn't make it and then its hoof got caught in a rung. It had probably been stuck all night. Poor thing. You could tell it was really tired because it couldn't stand up any longer. I ran inside and called Orem Animal Control. They arrived within about 15 minutes. Obviously they had to put it down. 

Not a fun way to start my day…

Hopefully it snows sooner than later to cover up all that blood.

Eyelashes no more

A new year is a good time to start out fresh right?? I don't know why but I decided to take off my eyelash extensions. Don't get me wrong. I really loved having them most of the time. But, some days, I wanted to pull them all out one by one!! And it wasn't all that fun to keep up with them. The girl who did mine was quite reasonably priced but it usually took 1 1/2-2 hours to get them filled about every month.

It was quite a shock to look in the mirror at first. But,  now---almost 2 weeks later,  it isn't as bad as I thought. I may actually keep them off for a while.
