I moved Wendle's surgery to Friday so we could be with him the whole weekend. Becca's arm is healing, of course she's whining a lot, but it looks good, swelling is gone, just a shading of a bruise.
I went to my yearly exam today, and the doctor looked it up on the computer for me. This is the LOWEST weight i've been since 2007!!!!!!
I bought 18/20 tops that FIT! I wore size 20 jeans! I'm almost out of PLUS Sizes!!! I am going to go crazy when I fit in a size 16!!! I'd also like to try to get into a 14. That was always my favorite "small" size since middle school. I was in a size 9/10 for a month or two for HS graduation, that would be cool too. I didn't think I could get that size again. We shall see. I'm just going to keep on tracking and see what happens next!

I'm exhausted today. Part is from stress, part is from just needing more sleep with my MS and stuff, and part of it is because the weather is miserable. I can't believe it's snowing! We got a couple of inches. I guess I choose to live in Michigan, so I realize that although it was 45 degrees out this week, it's now cold, windy and snowy.
I'm really looking forward to this summer, a skinnier me in a new bathing suit and SUNSHINE!!!!

Today was such an emotional day. First with the call from the Vet & scheduling surgery. I'm not going to worry about that until Wednesday when we find out what is wrong and how we move forward. Then as I sat there stunned and in tears a call from the school about my daughter hurting her wrist and needing an x-ray. this is the second day this week I left early because of her doing something. this is also month end reporting week, so I'm swamped at work. I could just scream I'm so stressed out.
Today I didn't workout, exercise, or anything more than stretching and meditating. I couldn't find it in myself. I'm going to bed in a few minutes. I didn't do a great job making food choices. I did stay in my limits, but made a few not as healthy choices. I wanted to snack mindlessly on chips, so I ate frozen mixed veggies. So I didn't stop the behavior, but I did make a better choice. I guess that's half way there. Plus I'm aware of it. If I didn't have to stay on the computer and work I would have just exercised. I had to make up for the 3 hours in the Urgent Care and work until 7:30pm.
One other pet peeve I am having. I don't understand people who let their dogs loose to roam. Or those who want to breed their pets for fun. I did not fix my dog until last year. I also did not breed him, and he was never in a situation where he had opportunity. He's never been outside without a human counterpart. I would never chain him outside either. I just choose the breed that fit with our family's personality, lifestyle, and it happened to be a breed we love the looks & personality. I think owning a pet is a privilege, and is a responsibility. Ok, I'll get off my soap box now and go to bed.

Within 20 minutes of each other, I just received two phone calls. One from the vet. The small marble lump we found wednesday has cells that are multiplying and dividing like crazy, and not just one type, numerous making it impossible to determine what kind of lump it is. He's going in for surgery on Wednesday. The school just called, my daughter is being sent home. She also fractured her wrist and needs to go to urgent care. I am doing deep breathing techniques while my report finishes. Once I email that I am leaving to pick up my daughter and bring her to Urgent care. I am emotionally drained at the moment. I'm sick, shaky, quivering. I want to cry so much. The broken bone will heal. The dog may not. We aren't ready to lose our bullmastiff. We just spent 3k on him last year in eye surgery expecting he would live at least 3 more years. We have always bought him the best food, brought him to the vet, pampered and loved him.. He almost died twice already, once because he ate a tube of ointment (the cat knocked off the shelf) and once because he was bitten by a spider when he was on predisone and it became infected and caused a huge ball that had to be drained (on the side of his face). It's been such a rough life for him, it's so not fair. He's the sweetest, gentlest, loving, adorable dog I have ever met. Instead of having a child 7 years ago, we adopted him. I won't have any more kids for a few reasons, so he filled that wanting of a child. my report is done, so I must go. i'll update on my daughter later today.
Ok, I'm back. No broken bone, no fracture. She's ok. I'm a little less stressed. I'm not going to worry about Wendle until we find out whats going on. Thank you for your support!!!

The New (2nd new) water heater is installed. Hot water in 45 minutes, I'm waiting an hour and a half! lol. The sun is out melting the snow away. I fed the birds today and some rather large bird-brains joined in (see picture below) as soon as they left, the crows came, then the squirrels. Busy backyard today. I'm working from home, so I get to watch this. :) It's month end at work, and I finished my first report almost a full day ahead of time! Now to work on #2 & #3. I've already walked the dog for 20 minutes - that was a chore. He decided to wander only a quarter of the property, but that meant wearing huge boots and walking through snow. Nice mini workout. I plan on trying out my new MS workout dvd - I'll do a review on that later. I'm so excited to shower! And do dishes! I'm feeling better today, and I'm going to enjoy this sunshine!
