Slow Week

Not much going on at work this week. I just made a life appointment that should put me over the number of policies that I needed to get a bonus and a raise as long as the policies get issued and the people actually show up at 2pm for the appointment. The problem child of the office is on vacation and won't be coming back in till Thursday so the office is quiet and calm and wonderful to be in so far this week.

I recieved the sad news that Norwood's Niche is closing her brick and mortar store but she will be keeping her online store going so that's something at least but it will stop my trips to Rome. I'm going to miss playing with Myrtle when we make the trips up there. I'll be heading over to the S&B at Nease's on Thursday and then to Jana's on Friday and then to Museum Replicas on Saturday so it will be a busy weekend.

DH is calling the cat cardiologist today to make an appointment for Spike. He seems to be having problems breathing and starts to breath open mouthed when he's playing even for just a short time. He's also sleeping a lot. I'm worried about him. The more I think about it, the more that I worry cause he's the one that has a hole in his heart. I've been trying not to think about it but it's weighing on my mind today while I wait to hear when his appointment is.

I also continue to worry about LB(little black). He's the stray we've been feeding. It's getting colder at night now and I worry about him finding a warm place to sleep. We seem to have lost Gimp. I haven't seen him in over two weeks so I guess he's no longer around. I hope that someone took him in and that he's well and happy. We've caught sight of baby black a couple of times since her first appearance but she steers clear of us when LB isn't around. LB is starting to put on some weight now that I've been giving him wet food twice a day along with leaving the dry food out so that's a good sign.

Mom had her appointment with the arthritis specialist yesterday and found out that she doesn't have rumetoid arthritis which was good news. The doc put her on aleve to help with the pain and inflamation and said she should be fine.

Dad has told me that my brother is coming down for Christmas with his wife. She should be around 6 months along by then so I'm not sure if they will actually make it down here or not. When it gets a little closer to time and I know for sure they are coming, I'll go out and buy them presents but I'm not doing it now only to have them not show.

I've decided I'm going to do the Walk to Rivendale after reading Princess's blog about it. I'm gonna start on November 1st though. I've started ording my lunch meals from a place that delivers to me at work and all the meals are low-fat and small proportions to help me lose weight. I've also cut back to 1 soda a week instead of 1 a day. I've always said that I will not diet and I'm not dieting now. I'm just eating and drinking a little healthier and I am going to start walking which will hopefully lead me back into my excersize routine once we move to the house and I have room to lay out on the floor and do the workouts. I don't feel fat yet but I am feeling tired and worn down and I think it's cause of not eating right and excersizing so I'll give it a try for a while and see if I can start to feel better.
