Where Dani writes about… just about everything!
On Friday, I had the Mirena successfully inserted. You can read more about that over at my parenting blog if you’d like to, since I thought the subjects of birth control and family planning were slightly more suited for that blog. But twenty-four hours into the procedure, I’m happier than I’ve ever been — even though I have to take two 200mg Ibuprofen to deal with the occasional cramps, it’s not that bad and it’s one of the best contraceptive options that I could think of short of finding someone who was willing to tie the tubes of a twenty-four year old. Knowing me, I’m eventually going to want to go that route, but it’s probably going to look much better to my obstetrician if I waited some on making that decision. How ironic that the Mirena lasts five years…
At any rate, I’m going to stop by the bookstore after History of Religions I tomorrow to get the Statistics bundle that they should have in by then. If I can, I’d like to wait on getting the almost obligate TI-84 and see if I can use my current scientific calculator in that class because it’s going to save me money. I’ve had my current scientific calculator for several years now, having gotten it when I was a sophomore in high school and needed it to survive my Pre-AP Algebra II class. Over the years, I’ve gotten so familiar with it that I can do just about anything that needs to be done in a math class on it… so if I’m able to use it for Statistics, this is going to rock. I guess I’ll find out on Tuesday!

I remember the first time I watched the Snapped television show. I could not believe that people actually kill someone they loved and how they almost got away with the crimes. I have been hooked ever since that first show. I watch Snapped on Texas Satellite TV every week. There was this one episode that a man killed his wife in the tub and then called 911. He almost got away with that murder, except later that evening the detective asked his wife if she ever took a shower or bath with her watch on and she said “absolutely not!”. Next day the detective had the forensic doctor to take a closer look at the woman that had been killed and the doctor noticed that there was a bruise around the neck from strangulation. The bruises never showed up until twelve hours later. Previously, the forensic doctor had stated that the cause of death was from natural causes. Needless to say the husband was indicted for murder.
I love watching this show because it tells about true cases and how they are solved.
A Song That You Used To Love But Now Hate
Sorry, but this song did it for me. Remember how I’ve mentioned that I’ve loved most of Kuraki Mai’s work for years? Well, I remember having used to love this song back when I was first getting into her… but for some reason, I don’t like it as much now. It just doesn’t sound like most of her other work, and the melody isn’t upbeat enough for me to make it a point to listen to.
We’ve been feeding our dog Nubz Dental Treats for as long as we’ve had her. Our veterinarian recommended them to us when we took her in for her first check-up after my mother bought her, and I’m glad that we listened to his advice. Not only are they made of easily digestible ingredients, but they also promote healthy gums while simultaneously reducing the buildup of tartar to give your dog fresh breath. The fact that they aren’t made with any extra preservatives, salt or sugar is also nice because that makes them even healthier for dogs! As it is, our bloodhound has always had a slightly finicky stomach — she just can’t handle certain things well. However, she’s never had a problem with Nylabone‘s all-natural dental treats.
Are you interested in getting these dental treats for your dog? You can find great coupons for them in Costco’s monthly coupon books if you’re a Costco member like I am. From August 19th to September 12th, you can find coupons that are worth $3.50! Although you still have plenty of time because that’s almost an entire month, these coupons are only good as long as supplies last. So you should make it a point to clip them and get your dog these treats soon!
Not too long ago, I found out that my boyfriend’s dog is given these dental treats. As a matter of fact, I should have seen it sooner, but I didn’t think to check the bag until just recently. It is interesting to note how much we think alike, isn’t it? Personally, we always keep several bags of them here on hand at my house so we never run low. As far as our dog is concerned, they’re as important to her as her food is! She looks forward to them every morning.
