Feeling a little proud, I was smelling poo, So, in anger I jumped up with my trusty flashlight and went to look under the futon, and lo and behold, Biscuit had used her pee pad!!!
Now this is a small victory, but it has been a good day in her world and in mine.
I had to go to Walmart to buy a new router, and so I was in and out, straight back to electronics and straight out, of course, it took me half an hour to get into the parking lot and find a place to park and almost that long to get back out.
Then I had to stop at the local grocery and that was another super fun experience.
I would not have had to go if Goodys would have taken my payment over the phone, I tried paying online, it kept saying my password was wrong or something.
So I called and they said 15 dollar charge to pay over the phone, I laughed out loud and hung up on them.
So, off to the store to make that payment and came home, took my dad a bottle of leftover early times, left over from making christmas candy, because he is very sick, has an upper respitory infection and wanted to make himself a hot toddy.
Then, home, shower, walked Biscuit outside and she made her business out there as well.
Now, football, the Colts won, YAH HOO.
And, Subway and milk and now to relax.
The only set back to the day really was, I got a letter from my doctors office telling me that they will no longer be able to accept my health insurance, due to a dispute with my carrier, it seems they do not want to start a contract with my doctors offices.
This bugged me, but didnt deter me, I only see her once every 3 months, sans any emergencies, and if I have to pay to see her I will, because I will not leave her and go elsewhere, hopefully they can work the issue out soon and I will be able to have my office visits covered.
Gonna try to stay warm and watch some football and go to bed.
Overall, day 4 of the new year was pretty fair.

I am trying to stick to my plan of being accountable and owning my shortcomings.
So, here it is, the 3rd day of the new month, the new year and I am struggling.
I have not only eaten a kit kat today, but alot of bread.
Bread is worse in my opinion, because I didnt want to buy this bread but I did, knowing it wasnt going to end well.
It is a big loaf of wheat french bread, and while it IS wheat, its also BREAD, and I put butter on it.
I dont know why I am having such an issue saying no to this bread, or saying no to myself walking into the kitchen, opening the loaf, cutting off a thick slice and heating it in the microwave, then spreading the butter on it?????
But whatever the reason, I am.
I havent done well today at all.
It is cold here, super cold, like 8 degrees and I havent been out of the house today.
Also, really, really struggling with training the new puppy.
I have been trying with the pads, and while she does fair, I would say, 70 percent of the time on them pads for peeing, she absolutely WILL NOT go on one to poo!!!
And I am sick sick sick already of cleaning up poo!!!
In the 11 days shes been here, shes gone on the pad, maybe 2 times.
Mostly she goes anywhere she feels like.
No particular part of the room. There are pads down.
Any one have any suggestions?
Someone even suggested kitty litter. She is a very small puppy, and wont get to be more than about 8 or 9 lbs grown, but right now, she is a 1 pound poop machine and mostly what is making me the most angry, is that she goes under the futon and does her business, so that it has to be pulled out and cleaned.
I am really at my wits end.
So there it is, my day, struggling with food, and struggling with poo.

Finally got around to getting my hair cut and colored.
Went to a new stylist and it turned out really good, a little darker than normal, but it looks nice.
What a way to start off a new year, with a new cut and color and to just feel good about oneself.
Had a pretty good day, despite the rain and turning over to snow this evening.
Cold out tonight, will be icy in the morning.
Guess I will stay in.
Had a good day food wise as well, whey protein and more whey protein and Subway.
with the exception of a momentary lapse and a quicky eaten single reese cup!!!!
Reset my nutritional values today and reset my goal date, a short term goal to reach by Feb 12 when I go back to my doc again.
My number one goal in that department is to see my vitamin d slowly climbing the ladder again.
So thats about all I have today, everyone stay warm and safe and healthy.

Today has for some reason seemed like Sunday all day.
Didnt do much today, had a hair appointment, but she ended up rescheduling it, so I went to visit my SIL in the hospital, and shes beginning to feel a little better.
They removed the suction from her chest tube and if her lung stays inflated on its own, they will remove it tomorrow.
She is better and healed from her bowel surgery, but shes been in the hospital 22 days mostly from pneumonia, then the collapsed lung.
She has some infection from the tube, but shes doing alot better.
Then we went and shared a pizza and came home, bathed the new puppy and sat around the rest of the evening, not doing much of anything.
Supposed to get snow tomorrow.
I am really dreading it too, hope we dont get the 4 inches they are calling for, but its not even the snow I dread, but the cold.
We are to see temps in the single digits later in the week and I so dread it.
I cant seem to get warm these days as it is.
Havent had a very eventful New Years day.
Just pretty calm. That part was nice.

So, as of right now, My issues with the bank are resolved, hopefully. Got to keep a close watch over the next week and make sure nothing else goes wrong.
Seriously as soon as I get thru the first week of the year and all my bills are taken out and paid, I am going to switch banks and never deal with these people again.
So, here we are, on the eve.....of a new year.
I have no big plans for a send off to 2013. But I will send it off in some way. and be so happy to see it gone. All my plan is, maybe to cook a healthy dinner and watch the walking dead and stay inside with the honey and the new puppy. and just relax, no loud parties, no alcohol, no deep fried chunks of cheese. Just happiness to have warm house shoes on my feet and a cold bottle of water in my hand. and maybe a late evening walk, its supposed to warm in the 50s today.
I am so hoping this one goes better for me than the last one.
I know its kinda goofy to feel that way about a date, I have never been superstitious or religious, but the number 13 in this past year has brought with it, for me, alot of bad mojo.
Alot of wrong, it was a year ago today, I had been hit full in the face with the total betrayal of a friend I thought I would always have.
It took me up thru the month of April to find out all the details of the back stabbing, I never fully knew, and still dont today why they chose the path they took.
But I am just glad to put it behind me.
It took me along time to realize it was their shortcoming in character, nothing I had done.
Well choosing to be friends and confine in and trust the wrong people I guess, that lesson learned.
So today, I sit here, looking out over the horizon of this new year and for the first time in a long time I have faith and confidence that I can make this year better.
Getting the bank situation lined out before the end of the year has given me new hope.
Maybe just maybe, going into the new year will be an easing in. No big bangs of pain and loss, no big knives to the back or the gut.
And what I look forward to most, is finding myself again, Not the person others made me into this past year, but the person I was in 2012.
The woman determined to live cleaner, less alcohol, less food, more exercise, more insight into who I want to be and how I want to live.
I will take no crap off of anyone this year.
I will not be put down, or dragged down by others who have a bad intention.
I will fully accept my shortcomings and losses and deal with them head on, not sit back and cry and wait for the fall out.
And what else can I do???
Workout, walk, eat healthy, live clean, stay away from alcohol and drama and just live.
That is all I have for today.
