A Very Bunny Existence

Life with a husband and 3 bunnies.

Long Time, No See, Blog!

OK, I’ve been a terrible blogger.  November and December at school just about did me in.  Between the two months, we have a total of 28 school days (not a standard 38-40).  We also have Parent/Teacher Conferences, a Thanksgiving feast, ten thousand Christmas-related activities to make/complete/wrap, Christmas parties, Christmas program rehearsals, and a multitude of seemingly endless special events.  Thankfully, a two week break was taken for Christmas and I’m feeling a bit refreshed.  January is always nice because we have one three day weekend and all the rest of the month is just normal.  No field trips.  No programs.  No special events.  It’s good.


Anyway, on the bunny front, we’ve had a lot happening.  Way too much to really do a thorough catch up, but here are some highlights:

-Both Junie and Nibbles had bouts of gassy tummies.  Thankfully, with a dose or two of simethicone, they were okay by the next day and we didn’t have to take a trip to the vet.

-All three buns traveled with us over Christmas to my in-laws, about 4 hours away.  The last time we went, Nibbles did pretty well with everything and Junie and Crispin seemed very agitated the whole time.  This time, it was the opposite!  Nibbles would not let me pet him the whole time, while J&C seemed fairly at ease.

-The bunnies were totally spoiled at Christmas!!  We bought them the Living Things Teach ‘N Treat and the large willow “twigloos” found on wag.com.  The twigloos stayed actual twigloos for about 3 days.  After that, they were so chewed apart, they really became a mangled pile of sticks.




Aaaand, the twigloos today:

RIP Twigloos.

-The bunnies were also spoiled by their Grandma and Great-Aunt (hehe).  They had treats, hay boxes, chew toys, grass mats, and the maze/tunnel from binkybunny.com!  We haven’t given them all that yet.  We’re trying to space it out so they have lots of fun things to play with for a long time!

-On New Year’s Day, we celebrated by doing a MASSIVE cleaning of the bunnies’ pen.  We ended up replacing the sheets with indoor/outdoor carpets (the same as J&C have in their run-around area).  We’re hoping it will be much easier to clean.


Mid-clean (notice the bright windows).  Cages completely moved, living room a complete mess.  Bunnies in the office.

Lint Catcher 2When we washed and dried the sheets, we had mounds of hair.

I think that’s plenty for one post.  More coming soon…including video (with my new video camera from the in-laws!), and blog awards.
