Somewhat Offbeat: When OCD Can Be Broken Down To "Oh, Chocolate Death!" If "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" Is Not Careful

"Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" has posted about this before, so this is obviously nothing new. Still, even doing as minimal as baking a chocolate pie (which, despite her CP, "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" can at least relatively do) gets "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" to have her OCD/Anxiety flare up. What especially makes her OCD/Anxiety flare up all the more is when Reilly and/or Camille can be found in the kitchen at the same time as the worried human mother and aunt in question. Worsening matters all the more so is when "Auntie Michelle"/"Mimi" doesn't let her focus and/or keep Reilly and/or Camille out of the kitchen, especially when one or both of them will scour for whatever can be eaten (notwithstanding its edibility).

One can guess, then, what happened tonight. If he or she can't guess, "Auntie Nicole" will give a hint: copious amounts of half-size paper towels and sprays of Mrs. Meyer*s® Clean Day later, cleaning and double checking, and having to scold Camille for trying to scour for anything spilled and cleaner on the floor, "Auntie Nicole" at least cleaned up (hopefully) thoroughly enough (Reilly was upstairs, for which "Momma" is thankful enough, meanwhile). The OCD/Anxiety flare up and unhappiness with the fact that "Mimi" didn't let her focus and keep Camille out of the kitchen is continuing, nonetheless. Meanwhile, a concurrent ADD flareup just began at least a few seconds ago and was affected by the OCD/Anxiety flareup.

If only "Momma" and Reilly had someone else to help them out and frankly weren't still stuck with not-exactly-as-supportive-as-they-could-be "Mom-Mom" and "Auntie Michelle"—despite how much "Auntie Nicole" would miss her furniece and Reilly might miss her cousin—and keeping Reilly away from chocolate, raw eggs, and flour among other puppy-unfriendly ingredients is a significant part of helping "Momma" and Reilly!

#WoofWednesday: More Of "Momma"'/"Auntie Nicole"'s Lifesavers

Meanwhile, Reilly's apparent equivalent of hadibrot harishonah v'shlishit (as she jealously sat on "Mom-Mom"'s lap):

"You shall have no other dogs before me, for I, Reilly the dog, am a jealous dog, visiting the slights of others upon the fur children of those whom provoke me to jealously, but showing affection to thousands, those whom love me and give in to my demands for scritches and belly rubs."


(PS 10 pictures for all of the 10 Dibrot! "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" did not expect that!)












PS "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" removed the videos, forgetting that they included private jokes until now.

An Armed Forces Week Card From Reilly And Camille

PS "Momma" and Reilly particularly wish the Air Force a good day on this Air Force Day during Armed Forces Week--and they have a bit of a special affinity for the Air Force, with the Marines and Army coming in at a close second :-). 

Somewhat To Mostly Offbeat: "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" Means When She Says That...

Reilly and Camille are a main reason why she is alive right now—and, to the chagrin of many, she has said this before. She wonders what would happen to especially Reilly if something ever happened to her, and something almost did happen to her before she got Reilly—she overslept to the point at which she could have died due to starvation due to oversleeping because of a Depression flareup had the flareup become worse than it already had been.

As she's also mentioned before, she missed much of Reilly's first year because of her Depression flareup—not to mention "Auntie Michelle"'s Depression-exacerbating insistence that her apparent "experience" was more important than her reading, talking to pet owners in the neighborhood, &c.. Luckily, Reilly did—as all pre-adult puppies do—need 16-20 hours of sleep per day, and at least "Auntie Michelle" would bring up Reilly to see her in the mornings—so, she got to spend more time with her than she would and could have spent otherwise.Nonetheless, she swore to take a hands-off approach and not help  Miss "Experience" at all once Camille came home, since Miss "Experience" insisted that she knew better than her. She ended up capitulating, anyway, and became a helpful-enough "Auntie Nicole".

She also tried becoming a better "Momma". Then in January of 2016, she began to experience a really-rough time that has gone on in an up-and-down way for more than two years now—and an event that relates to that happened in May and really affected confusion in her that is still affecting her to have draining Depression, OCD/Anxiety, ADD, and other flareups that affect her to too often be—among other things—a bad "Momma" to patient-anyway-though-quite-often-understandably-frustrated Reilly. Meanwhile, Reilly has often reminded her to stay alive when she has reached really-low points and entertained not-so-good thoughts. She also has taught her patience while, for example, she awaits a certain answer for both of their sakes.

So people can keep feeling chagrin when "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" states that she would be dead right now were Reilly and Camille in her life, even though—as has been observed by at least a few people—facts never base themselves on anyone's feelings—including feelings of chagrin.

#FluffyFriday: There Are Cute Barks & Then Barks That (Even Though They'll Be Missed Someday) Are Not So Cute

For example:

  1. Camille's squirrel bark is cute.
  2. The barks that Reilly and Camille bark when someone comes home or a guest comes over may or may not be cute—and the barks are cute if they're the "Where were you?!" and "I've looked forward to seeing you" barks that are accompanied with happy whines and whimpers.
  3. The barks that could cause "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" to fall are not cute. Other barks that are too loud (like the ones that happened a few seconds ago) are not cute, either.

#WoofWednesday: Three Years Ago Today...







By the way, "Auntie Nicole" has yet to see even a picture of Tootsie, although she sees her in both Camille and Camille's maternal sister Shelby (and she's seen Poppie)! "Momma", though, has seen Apple and Oobie-Won (and it's still great that Apple is, like Reilly's "great-great-great-grandmother" Allen was, about two years older than her partner—since Apple was six and Oobie-Won four in 2015, and Reilly's Allen "great-great-grandparents" were born in June 1880 and September 1881, respectively—and that Apple even looks as a canine like Nana Allen did as a human!)

#ToyTuesday (Toys-day? In Any Case, Reilly And Camille Are Spoiled)




Subsequently, Camille aggressively guarded the toys when Reilly wasn't even near her (Yikes!)

#ThrowbackThursday To A #MortifyingMonday When....

"Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" left the front-hallway gate open as she was going to wait for someone whom was coming over that day to come into the house: long story short, it was a bad idea! By the grace of Yehovah, "Mom-Mom" was home that day—since Reilly and Camille probably (ח'ו'ש) would've eaten something dangerous (since especially Reilly was chewing "nasties" such as grass on other lawns out there), been hit by a car, or attacked by a bird or maybe even the big puppy that was being walked by the house at around the same time (since Reilly went over to bark at the big pup, whom actually was just baffled by the small pup barking in his or her face).

Of course, Reilly and Camille ran out there to greet whom was coming over in the first place—which they did as he or she came toward the house—and right after they greeted the person in question, Reilly saw her barking target, got scooped up by "Mom-Mom", and went inside with everyone else.

By the way, that's an example of why Reilly's nicknames include "Brat [albe a lovable brat]", "Stubbornhead", and "Barker"!
