I have had Rosalie, my dad's cat a little over two months. Friday the basement where she's hiding got too cold for her so she started coming upstairs and getting really friendly FINALLY! Saturday I was working with my coworker who recently lost a dog a few months ago. I worked with her daughter too and her daughter was trying to get her mom to take Rosalie. Well she told me Saturday that she finally felt ready to have an animal again. I felt kinda bad since Rosie took 2 months just to come upstairs in my house. What if I moved her again it set her back 2 more months? Oh ya and this woman sews catnip mice for our work and she has no cat lol A cat haven! So I took a chance, I have known Jandi for 1yr+, I knew she loved animals. I took her over to her house on Sunday night and Rosalie just started exploring ASAP. She was sitting on furniture while I was still there and looked right at home. I guess moving from being a clinic cat to being a house cat was hard for her. But seemed like after she got the hang of it, she had it down pat. Plus Jandi's house is so much calmer and quiet than mine. It's hard finding homes for animals who belonged to someone you loved. I don't wanna let him down even in the afterlife. As if I could do any better. I think I found all three cats great homes though and I feel good about all of them.
The office is still up in the air, it's been 5 months almost. If my mom can't sell it by January 1st, she's gonna have to give up. It's just too expensive to keep paying rent with no money coming in. There is a woman interested and she has been coming for months. Bringing contractors, drug reps, equipment sales ppl. She's been to her bank. But then she still wont commit. We are just trying to hold our breath and hope for the best. The owner of the shopping center came in and started tearing the place up getting ready to redo the inside. He threw away all the waiting room chairs, tore and the paneling off the walls, ripped the carpet out of my dads office. I am almost afraid to go see it right now. Kinda like seeing someone after they past, I am not sure I wanna remember the office like this. People die and life goes on like they never existed.
Eating and exercise have been ok. Getting enough steps this time of year, sucks. Yesterday at work I got 5000 steps. Then I came home and painted for 2 hours and shoveled for 40 minutes and still didn't make my steps for the day. Today I am hitting the gym, for sure. I miss my dog walks. Go away 7 inches of snow! Scott made the paper yesterday. They were driving around he must have been the only person crazy enough to be out running in that junk.
I finally got the bedroom finished painting. I needed Scott to take the flat screen off the wall and take down shelves so I could paint behind. Now none of our sheets or anything match the walls. Oh well, maybe in the summer I will care when I don't need to buy huge comforters to match periwinkle walls. I will take a pic when I get things more organized looking. Looks frazzled still.
