Everything's going okay, not perfect but alright. I haven't been to the gym since Tuesday though! I suck. Wednesday I was really sore, and I had homework to do on my lunch break. I was just so sore from Tuesday that I knew I wasn't going to class at night. We ended up taking the kids to the playground so I got some exercise playing on the swings and doing some squats while pushing Spencer up and down on the see-saw! :-D Thursday I skipped a lunch break because Joe had drank too much the night before and I went home to check on the kids (and bring Spencer to work with me) at around 9:15 am. The babysitting service isn't open when I get done work so I didn't have a chance to work out after.
I really had nothing to say to Joe on Thursday after work. I'm just so over his drinking. I pretty much told him yesterday that I'm not going to argue with him when he decides to drink, because I'm sick of that argument and I'm sick of him lying to me about how much he drinks. But I'm going to leave if he starts drinking too much. Honestly, at this point, if he wants to put alcohol before his family then so be it. I cannot make him change. Spencer and I deserve better, and so does his daughter. At this point... I just have no energy to keep up this fight.
Anyway... on Thursday night Charlie had two seizures. Spencer refused to sleep until around 2 am. I called out of work yesterday and Joe took the dog to the vet and I took Spencer (and Chloe) to the doctor. Spencer is now on meds for a double ear infection and pneumonia! My poor baby. Charlie's bloodwork came back fine though he's gained 15 lbs in the past year eating the kids' food! He's still lean, and the vet wasn't too concerned, but we decided we'd try to take him out more for runs. The vet only wants him on meds if the seizures keep happening and are more than once a month or so. I guess seizures are pretty common in adult dogs. :(
We took Chloe to her mom's early yesterday because she had the day off from school (teacher workshops) and her mom didn't have to work. Today I'm hoping to get the porch cleaned up a bit. We have someone interested in coming by to pick up an old 50 inch tv we have that's beeen sitting around since last summer... she might come tomorrow. I also have some homework to do, want to read some more of the book I started last night (Hemlock Grove) and we probably need to go to the grocery store.
