Welcome to my Spark home

Welcome to my Spark page. I am 63 years old and a retired speciaI education teacher (non categorical preschool).
My husband and I have a 3 year old rescue beagle named Buster. He is a bundle of energy and makes us laugh. He has eerily similar traits that we saw in our last 2 rescue beagles. He's very sweet and lots of fun for us.
Our daughter, husband and her 3 children (my adorable grandchildren) live about 25 minutes from us. They also have an old rescue beagle. I am so ...

Our son is married to a great woman. They have his rescue beagle (see a pattern in our family?) and her two cats. They live about 10 minutes from us but are looking for a larger place! Hopefully, they won't move too far!
I joined Spark in December 2009 and, like everyone, life has thrown me some curves as well as blessed me in many ways! Although I struggle with consistency, my main struggle seems to always be with exercise. It seems I do fine for awhile and then I get off track. I always go back to the basics but it does get discouraging.
I'm trying to focus on being a healthy me with the energy to have fun with my family!

Reekie had moist stools earlier today but hopefully it will be okay. We are working on it. He still coughs sometimes and get out of breath but that would be part of pneumonia. He is up and down actually. No appetite usually. He is tired of being sick. Hopefully he can ride this out.

With all the work I got done Friday, we were able to rest this weekend and only take care of Reekie and fix meals and clean up after them. And I really only fixed one big meal and we scrounged in the fridge for the others. So we rested and slept a lot and messed with Reekie.

The vet tech asked us how he was doing and never got back to us. I had a couple of questions so I'm irritated. The vet will do the same thing. I know they are busy but why ask if they don't intent to get back to us!

Thanks for the prayers and hugs. We still need them. What are you up to?

Reekie kind of comes and goes. Sometimes he feels better and sometimes he feels worse. His stools are much better now though and there are more of them and they are bigger. He is eating some on his own. Wheezing sometimes and breathing hard sometimes but sometimes he is okay too. The vet tech asked for a condition report but has not gotten back to me.

I didn't have a real bad headache today. My cold is a little better. I got caught up on work today around here. The bathroom was to the point where it was going to be like a public restroom soon. I'm pretty picky about the bathroom and hate dirty bathrooms. I got the floors vacuumed. The cages a better cleaning. A load of laundry done. The dishwasher loaded, run, unloaded, and loaded again. The trash burned, the outdoor feeders full, the compost and recyclables taken out. so we should be okay this weekend. And I plenty of food prepared to eat. We won't have a lot of work to do.

Thanks for the hugs and prayers!
