Animal Man

My future husband sure as heck better like animals. Not necessarily love, but I won't settle for someone who merely tolerates animals. I've been around people who "tolerate" animals, usually for the sake of their spouse or kids - my dad, for example, who only ever liked one of the dogs we've owned though he would never admit it. My BIL, who isn't a fan of having pets and is against getting a dog. He doesn't make it a secret that he dislikes pets, and will usually voice his complaints through the occasional joke or remark.

Which is understandable, of course - cats can stink a place up and dogs tear a place up. But were I married to someone like my BIL, those remarks would get on my nerves pretty quick, possibly leaving me bitter toward my spouse. I'm rather hypersensitive about a lot of things and one thing I can't stand is negative remarks. Which, yes, is rather hypocritical of me as I'm always complaining about our dogs. But, then, I'm not a big fan of dogs. I like dogs, but the fewer the better and right now we have five dogs. I'm also a straight up cat person.

So I really hope that whoever I marry really likes animals. My mom says that guys who like animals are rare (most especially guys who like cats). But I've known guys who were not only animal fans but even cat fans. My friend's husband, for example, who had a cat before getting married. Another friend's husband and a guy who went to my church who even had a T-shirt that let you know he liked cats. So they do exist.

Which also makes me wonder if guys today are more animal loving then guys of my dad's or even grandfather's generation. I would like to think so, but it's hard to say. What do you all think?

I finally went to see a doctor! Yay! Okay, a throat, ear and nose or whatever specialist, but still better than nothing. We discussed my current nausea issues, tossed out a couple of possibilities for why I keep feeling like crap. When I told her about the pains in my neck, she checked my neck, said it was a little out of whack and realigned it.

Oh. My. Gosh do I feel better. Better than I have in a long time. There's still a few ache issues but I blame that on the weather (sudden changes in pressure kill me, and living in Kansas during spring-storm time doesn't help.). Today is the first day I haven't felt slightly queasy every two minutes. Does this mean I can write without issues? Man I hope so.

Oh, and for all those who wish they were taller - swallow that wish, it isn't worth it. There are several possibilities for why my neck went out of whack, but sitting at desks not meant for people my height hadn't helped. Now that I know what the problem is, though, and what I can do about it, hopefully I'll be able to keep this from happening again. Blast you vertebra!

And if the queasiness does come back, then it's time to get down and dirty and do a blood test. My mom keeps suggesting thyroid problems since it runs in the family, and because I was losing weight at one point (which I blame on exercise and eating cereal for two meals a day) and the doctor had suggested the same. Hopefully all my woes were the cause of my neck, allergies and weather. But if not... then crap. So far, so good, though ;).
