So...I actually started my new 'Plan' today....for reasons I shall soon reveal.
This morning, after dropping my son at work, I came back and had my oats with blueberries, cinnamon and a little dried pineapple. T'was YUMMY ! I'm not working till 5pm so It gives me a chance to have a good healthy lunch too. I went shopping y'day and stocked up on heaps of good healthy meals and snacks. I did have a little problem with the bread. You guys in the US have 'whole wheat' but we dont really have that here in Oz. I asked a baker and was told that 'wholemeal' is pretty much the same, so I went with that.
Now, about y'day........
While I've been absent from Spark People, quite a lot has happened.... most just general life stuff.... a small portion has been health.
But 2 other things happened....
We adopted 2 shelter cats
They are both around 12 to 18 months old...and female. They are also both Tortoiseshell (sp?)
One came from a shelter about an hour from here....and the other... Hubby and I drove 5 hours to pick her up.
I'm VERY much an advocate for non-kill shelters, which is why I chose to adopt rather that shop. I'm part of a group here that wants "Oscars Law" which is trying to abolish puppy farms in Australia. Anyway....thats ANOTHER story..... :)
The one that we drove to pick up, I only saw a picture of her on the shelters website and fell in love. So...to cut a LONG story short... shes here now and very happy.
Lately shes been a little 'funny'....couldnt quite put my finger on it. Now...keep in mind, its illegal here to sell a cat unless its been spayed or neutered. So....my SPAYED female has been acting weird, having some 'toilet' problems and is VERY VERY smoochy.
Y'day I took her to the vet..... one x-ray later.... I'm told shes...
To say I was shocked is an understatement !
How could this happen ???? Shes been 'fixed' !!!!
So, after recovering and talking to my sister, I rang the lady that sold her to me...and (to cut ANOTHER long story short !!!) she will pay for all vet bills I will incur, INCLUDING having her spayed !!
So in a couple of weeks I'm gonna have maybe up to 5 kittens in the house.... I hope all goes well with the birth... I'm a little worried....
I'm actually a little excited ! Little babies in the house....
You can make ALL the plans in the world...but sometimes fate throws a spanner in the works. Lucky I'm a pretty easy going person !!! LOL
So I will keep you all posted on how MY plan goes....and also how Amber goes with her pregnancy. Might even post some pics of the birth !
Have a GREAT day friends !!!!!
