Today just might very well be the first spring like day. I'm planning on wearing my light spring jacket and enjoying the fresh air. Spring! All too soon the trees will start agreeing that spring is here and will be leafing out. I'll be patient waiting, for now blue skies and a sun peeking out behind a cloud is good enough for me.
On Monday, Miss Holly had her spaying operation and true to her shy self, she just stared at them in recovery refusing to eat or drink. They discharged her informing me that she will be drowsy. The instructions were: no jumping (she jumped.), no running (she ran.) and no licking (guess what - she licked). Oh. my. goodness.
I drove back to the vet for the third time to pick up a soft cone collar only to discover that it was way too big because she is a wee little cat. I tried various other ways to stop her. We ended up say stop it and kept a close eye on her. For 24 hours after discharge she was hyper - then miraculously she crashed and ignored the suture site (internal stitches and then glue).
Holly's doing well now but my anxiety went through the roof and I'm still recovering from my frantic manic worries I conjured up. She's better and I'm better. Phew. My sister listened to me rant and complain and fret - she is awesome.
Can you believe it's been almost six months of me going to the gym and working out with a personal trainer? I know! Joining the gym was one of the best decisions I've ever made for my health. I'm thrilled with how strong I am becoming and how my confidence has improved. I rarely complain (who me?) and I try all the new stuff with a much better attitude.
My salad-a-day goal is going well. I want my meals to reflect the amount of work I'm putting in the gym.
We've been eyeing up the calendar and trying to figure out some trips. How can it be that we are busier now more than ever? I like being busy but those do-nothing days are gone and now I have a do-nothing afternoons instead. I've discovered that you have to schedule in the down time.
