Our old cat died and the kids cried. I will miss him but am glad he went to cat heaven. He had a tumor the size of a golf ball but his health was not good enough to have it removed. He was a loud cat--Siamese talk all the time. He tolerated the kids carrying him around when they were young and never scratched any of them! He was almost 20 years old and walked rather stiffly. I guess he had arthritis. Anyway, this cat was afraid of the vacuum cleaner but not the lawn mower. He loved to ride in the car but screamed bloody murder when we went through the car wash. I only did that once.
On another note, my nutritionist increased my calories to 1700 and although I had a hard time adjusting to eating so much, I am losing weight. I really had my doubts but... if it works I will continue to pig out!
I love spring! I am already planning my garden and can't wait to get my early veggies planted. The flowers are blooming and I was glad to see my Bleeding Heart made it through another winter. Some of the trees have leaves and we mowed the lawn on Sunday afternoon.
My boys are starting to count the number of days before finals! The year is going so quickly!
Well, my goals are to finish sorting all the home school books for the sale, build a new shed, clean the garage, continue to track my food and exercise, go fishing, open the pool in May and swim all summer!
Take care Spark friends. Stay strong!
