Little Additions To Life

So the Little Guys are fast asleep and I’m cooking up the rest of the week’s projects in my head. If you haven’t noticed already, I’ve changed the blog around a tiny bit. I love all things creative and I have always wanted to branch out and actually begin the projects I brainstorm over after the babies are out for the evening.

It’s a new year and you know when you just want to add a little bit to your already amazing life? That’s how I’ve been feeling. Obviously my boys are my passion and being their mom is my favorite. Meeting Judah’s unique needs, his silly-adorable-quirky personality, Jacob’s ever increasing need for knowledge, independence and sweet-heart love, fulfill my life (not to mention having the best friend a girl could ever want with a husband like mine).

So, if I add a Virtual Book Club, a few extra recipe ventures, a bit of fashion and do-it-yourself projects to the mix, it can only add to the fun-crazy life I have.

With yesterday’s out of sync binge over, today evened out to be pretty good. It was warm enough for a little outside time with the babies, during which Jacob went on and on about how Daddy is going to by him a truck (like the one someone parked in front of our yard) but it would only be for him (we’re still working on sharing). It’s looking like The Frat boys will be back in the house across the street; hence the truck parked in front of our yard. Last Summer they filled the weekends with partying and provided Josh and I with great entertainment…into the wee hours of the morning. They moved out sometime last year, apparently one was going on a missions trip with his church (WHAT!?) and the other couldn’t handle the rent alone; So our quiet street was returned to us. I’m hoping the truck appearance means this time around, we’re getting nice helpful neighbors who will haul away our backyard trimmings instead of scattering beer bottles in our yards. Who knows, maybe a church missions trip was just what they needed.

All that to say I’m hoping you’ll enjoy the little additions to my blog and share with me your brainstorming sessions and what brings you joy in life.

Veterinary medicine

Veterinary medicine is the branch of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease, disorder and injury in non-human animals. The scope of veterinary medicine is wide, covering all animal species, both domesticated and wild, with a wide range of conditions which can affect different species.

Veterinary medicine is widely practiced, both with and without professional supervision. Professional care is most often led by a veterinary physician (also known as a vet, veterinary surgeon or veterinarian), but also by paraveterinary workers such as veterinary nurses or technicians. This can be augmented by other paraprofessionals with specific specialisms such as animal physiotherapy or dentistry, and species relevant roles such as farriers.

Veterinary science

Veterinary science helps human health through the monitoring and control of zoonotic disease (infectious disease transmitted from non-human animals to humans), food safety, and indirectly through human applications from basic medical research. They also help to maintain food supply through livestock health monitoring and treatment, and mental health by keeping pets healthy and long living. Veterinary scientists often collaborate with epidemiologists, and other health or natural scientists depending on type of work. Ethically, veterinarians are usually obliged to look after animal welfare.
