On the road

Wednesday, September 11, 2013

Yesterday I overslept and woke up when I needed to be getting in my car EEEEP! Usually I wake up an hr early even if that means 4 am and leave at 5 just so I can sit down and eat a meal in peace and read what my friends did after 9 pm when I went to bed. Well I had enough time yesterday to brew coffee and get in the car ASAP. I thought, ughhh I guess I gotta go to mcdonalds on my way. My first mcdonalds was not open yet at 5:17 am. 45 miles later in the boonies on route 136 I found an open Mcdonalds. 900 calories later I had breakfast in me. For lunch I could have eaten a builder bar I brought but no I went to IGA in this little town called Bushnell and got a big salad that had turkey and ham on it and eggs and cheese. Oh and I got a cream soda and jelly beans lol I was about to get my period and no control. Made me feel like garbage eating all my meals out. Not really getting too many fruits or veggies in. Not sure Ice berg lettuce has any nutritional value besides being a close family member to water. Point is today will be better! My period has finally come, I have the day off to drag myself around the house. And we cleaned the house last night so I got no chores to do! Besides grocery shop.

Things seems to be moving along with my mom, she was in good spirits yesterday. She has a woman who is really interested in the office. Only sad part is that she is gonna come in and gut it and it's gonna be pretty unrecognizable after she's done. We would hope it would go to someone nice like my dad and his clients would wanna stay. But she kinda seems like the opposite of my dad in that it's a business, just a business. My dad was in it for the animals and was awful at the business end lol That's how I want a vet though! We have all had doctors the opposite of that. You wait 2 weeks to get in with then and they stand in the doorway practically and look at u and say "Yep I will write up 4 prescriptions of various steroids and u can choose which u wanna afford, goodbye". My dad really cared about his clients and always took after hour calls no matter how crappy he felt and knew the ppl had no money. I miss him and I am gonna miss our office, it was a 2nd home.

I hope everyone is doing good, I gotta catch up on blogs!

    I'm so sorry. Your dad was definitely part of that generation of vets that we all wish were still in the majority, the James Herriot types. I completely understand. It's hard to believe that a place that was your second home will one day be just another place of business...it may feel like everything is being erased, but it isn't. Those fuzzy feelings you have of the place will never go away. (((hugs)))

    I hate waking up late. I did it the other day. It throws my entire day off. Morning comes too early.

It seems that every town that has much of anything has a McDonalds. LOL. I have looked at the nutrition info and for fast food McDs often has the best numbers but none of it is healthy. Unfortunately sometimes we all have to eat at these places. 900 calories at these places is not all that bad.

It is sad that your dad's office will change so much. It happened with my mom's and MIL's houses. We sold them and the people that bought them are a mess. They made horrible changes to my MIL's house. And mom's is deteriorating. Take pictures of his office before it is sold. We did that with my MIL's house and my mom's.

Basically your father was special. Most vets, and actually most men, are not like him. It would be wonderful if another man like him moved into his office but the chances of it are slim. emoticon

    I know it's going to be hard to let go. :(

I didn't eat very well yesterday either, but at least I logged it! Have a great weekend!
