my little baby

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

My dog is sick. I had to take him to the vet today, he tries to go to the bathroom and he cant, so he just strains and pushes, and then as soon as I bring him back inside, he wants me to take him out again.
So, as I always do, today, when I brought him inside, I cleaned him with his little wet wipes and he was bloody.
Freaked me out, so I loaded him in the car and drove to the vet.
They took a sample and checked his stomach. The vet said he isnt constipated because his stomach is soft.
So, he said it could be worms, or it could be a bacterial infection. or some other parasite.
So, they gave me medicine to give him for the next week.
And told me to keep watching him to see if he is able to go or not.
I feel so bad for the little guy, he just lays around like hes so tired.
Makes me think about how humans can complain with pain or whatever is bothering us, and we do alot more than others might want to hear sometimes.
But animals cant tell us what is wrong.
So that was pretty much my whole day. I am tired and havent exercised in days.
I have to really get my butt back in gear.

Talking and/or writing about it is the best thing you can do! Scream it out if you have to. We are here for you anytime. Also, it's very therapeutic to actually speak the words out loud to someone.

Sometimes people can process it better and come up with solutions when they actually say them out loud! Whether writing or talking about it--get it out! Good for you!

sleep? what is that?

Thursday, May 12, 2011

My new favorite salad dressing, Kens French with Applewood smoked bacon.
It is not low cal, its 140 calories for 2 tbsps. But soooo worth it, it is sweet and I love it.
But only occasionally at that calorie range.
Anyway, I decided not to go to the doctor today. I figured that there wasnt a whole lot she could do for me. Prescribe me something for my throat. So, I went to the grocery store and stopped off at the liquor store and picked up some jack daniels and honey for hot toddies.
It was good enough for grandma!!!
haha.....Am planning to take a good hot shower later, maybe fire up the vaporizer and drink a hot toddie before bed, maybe I will finally sleep.
I think since Tuesday I have slept all of about 6 hours.
I dont know what is up with that....last night it was just so hot, I woke up at 230 after about 2 hours of sleep, I got up.
Maybe too much on my mind. It has been 2 weeks today since I got all my medical info turned in to my doctors to submit to the insurance company concerning my approval for surgery.
And, still no answer back. I am worried the cardiologist is going to hold me up.
I have got to get my air conditioner fixed in my car.
Another hot day like today....I cant take too many hot days in that car.
Hope each of you had a nice day, hope the weather is nice where you are and all is well.

tim mcgraw concert, pics and a sore throat

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

I woke up yesterday morning with a scratchy throat, but I put it off as allergies, since the evening before we had mowed the grass and cut weeds, as did my neighbor. So, I assumed it was just that.
But as the evening went on I began to hurt even more. So, going to the Tim McGraw concert last night, of course, yelling and woohooing and shouting and hooping didnt do my throat much good.
And, being out in the cold night air and sprinkling rain, walking to the car after, I am sure only added to it.
So, by the time I got home last night, I knew I was sick. I was aching all over and woke up with a stuffy nose, body aches and sore throat.
I just got over this!
I went and looked at my receipt for when I purchased some cold medicine and it was only March 24th. I thought I was better.
Is my immune system weakened?
How did I get sick again so soon? A good friend of mine who is an RN, told me it sounded like the flu.
So, tomorrow, off I go to the doctor, which I had thought I would be done with until at least June, to get tested for flu and see what I can do to get over this.
But I did have a good time at the concert. If you ever get a chance to see Luke Bryan live, I say go for it.
Tim McGraw was the main attraction of course and he did a great job, but this Luke Bryan guy was fantastic, his band came out playing AC/DC and during the night they played their country songs, blended in with Metallica and even some Lionel Ritchie.
It was a great night.
I only got in a short workout yesterday, and didnt do any today as I felt so bad, althought I have cleaned house and did laundry all does that count for anything?
But we were in the upper section in row M, which meant from the floor we had to walk up 13 very steep steps to our seats and I must have made that climb 4 or 5 times going to the bathroom and for refreshments.
So I am counting that as a "workout" haha.
But, it was a good night.
Although, outside, and we didnt know this until we came out, there was an awful thunder and wind storm hitting the area.
The power did knock at least 2 times inside the arena, but they had back up power and the power never fully went off inside, so we werent even fully aware of what had happened.
The only thing we saw was that the big screens and some of the lighting was messed up for awhile.
But the sound was great, it was booming thundering music and the crowds screams and singing along.
When we got closer to home, we began to see some of the damage, trees and mudslides along the roadway and a roof blown off a drug store in town.
My friend who lives about 3 miles from me still was without power at 5 pm today.
But we were luckier, we didnt lose power and no damage, so that was a blessing.
I am sure hoping I dont have the flu and that maybe it will pass quickly and I can get back to normal, whatever that is.
Hope you all have had a good day. Will add pics my son took a few. Pics are of me and my best friend Pam, my son Jason in the blue shirt, me and my honey Bill in the orange shirts and of course the concert.

i need cca meetings---coca cola anonymous

Friday, May 06, 2011

So, today I got in a pretty good work out, focusing more on strength training, the upper back and arms.
Did a little (but not enough) cardio.
Hoping soon the rain and wind that has been here for so long, will go away and I can finally walk.
It seems when I think its going to be a good day for it, as soon as I step out, the wind gets so bad, I end up running for cover.
But overall, it was a pretty good day, went with honey to his docs appt after he came from work and then went to eat.
Had a chicken club and ok ok, I did have a COKE....
But I cant help it, its my fall from grace.
That monkey on my back...I once blogged about my drug of choice and how my dealer was on every street...waiting for my money, luring me, seducing me the ice cold red can!!!!!!
Hope all of you had a good day and stay out of meanness!!!!

    I cant be any help here....I drink a lot of diet coke/pepsi. I really do...probably unhealthy amounts! I drink it more for the caffiene than anything (dont like coffee). I drink a lot of iced tea too.

I wish I could give it up!

Good luck though

    I used to be the same way about Diet Coke. Addicted to it. The aspartame is proven to slow or prevent weight loss in most people. I eventually switched to regular root beer or ginger ale as a substitute. Eventually I went cold turkey due to wanting to eliminate the calories. Worked so far. Every once in a while I treat myself to a can of root beer but not often. I can still drink the Canadian version of the stuff around here but bought a can a couple of months back down in the USA and literally dumped the entire can out the window as I drove (kept the can for recycling of course). Couldn't stand the taste of it anymore. Far sweeter than the Canadian version of the same brand.

Good luck on getting rid of the evil red menace.

    Hang in there and don't give up....I am formerly the #1 Coca Cola addict. I went "cold turkey" because if Coke was in the house I ignored my water.

So I started on that water and when I reached 10# off, I decided to treat myself as a reward. I almost spit it out. (honestly, I almost cried, too). It was WAAAAAAY to sweet. I actually did not even like it, and didn't drink more than the first sip.

I'm NOT saying it was easy, but our bodies DO adjust and acclamate to new surroundings. Hang in there...drink only water for that snack...give yourself an attainable goal to work for...and treat yourself to a Coke. You may still enjoy it, so just enjoy it...then re-start a new goal. Good luck!
