Quality of Life

Blanca is not ready to be back in the cage.

Today I was all set on writing about making changes that would impact your quality of life and the value in those changes.  Changes which I am attempting to implement.  Then around 5pm, it was time to deal with the rabbits again.  Honestly, I wasn’t prepared for the outcome. Let’s just say it involved nitrile exam gloves, a rifle, 4 rats – I should really call them Rodents of Unusual Size (ROUSs) and a lot of mosquito bites.

Rather than write, I will post a few photos.  After I put my daughter to bed, one will hear the vacuum sloosh and ‘bau’ with a very hard b from a good bottle of wine because tonight the rules of ‘wine interferes with my well needed beauty sleep’ don’t apply.

I do have to say, I am very proud of myself – no cursing out loud today in front of Ruby (at least that I remember and you can’t ask her)…we could be getting somewhere. And all the rabbits are alive and well, if a little traumatized.  And I finally found the other hole in the chicken wire and closed it with nylon ties.  Who wants to visit? It is Hawaii after all.
