Every once in a while I hit it 100%. I stayed within my food goals like calcium, sodium and other things that I keep track of everyday. I am almost always over on sodium by just a a few points or so everyday. Oh well, I really try to keep that level low and it is compared to a lot of other people I know (taking about my husband and son).
Read some of the Sunday paper and took Phred out for a walk. It was very nice and warm today, with a nice light breeze. So different from the other day when I was walking in a constant 15-16 mph with gusts of 25-50 mph.
Later in the day took Frank out to buy him a new pair of sneakers. We got them on sale at Skechers with tax for just under $40. Dropped him off at the house and then headed over to K-Mart. Why? Well, it seems with some of the construction we have started, we now have a mouse in the house. Only happened one other time over 10 yrs. ago.
Phred the wonder dog is scared of it or them. This is a Jack Russell mix, they are suppose to be rat killers, so why does he run and hide. Oh, I don't know if he really does that, but my husband said he is scared of it! My husband got the scare of his life, by the mouse the other night. He decided to get up and go into his office and play on his computer. The mouse was on his desk and it ran right across his hand. LOL
Funny thing is, the other day I thought I saw something move fast out of the corner of my eye. My first thought was "Oh no, not again", and I didn't say anything because the last time I said we had mice, my family just ignored me for a few days until someone else also saw it or them. So now we have 4 traps around the house, in hopes the little "buggers" will like the dried pumpkins seeds I put in them. The only thing they seem to be eating at the moment is the dog food, again poor Phred is protecting his food. LOL But not in a brave way, he growls and snaps and turns tail, runs back to either my husband or I in the living room. Of course, by the time we get up, the suckers are gone!
