Day 11 of Dog Walking & Day 10 of No Diet Dr. Pepper

Thursday, September 27, 2012

Still going strong on my two streaks. We went walking again in the evening. It was so nice outside. There was a nice little breeze. We decided to walk around the block this time. Benny was so hyper this evening. He sure gave me a good workout. I was sweating when I got home.

I still think about how great it would be to be able to drink a glass of Diet Dr. Pepper, but there is no way I'm going to give up my streak. I'm drinking a Clear American Lemon flavored Sparkling Water. It's pretty delicious and refreshing.

Today during my breaks from work, I was cleaning the house. I swept, vacuumed, and mopped the floors. Half of this house had to be mopped. I also had to scrub the carpet where there was a leak. Then later in the day I found another wet spot. So I'm keeping my eye on it and I'll probably call my landlord in the morning. I'm hoping it's nothing major.

A couple of days ago, I mentioned my older brother. I found out yesterday that he is coming down here to Georgia from Illinois for a short visit. He got here sometime this morning I believe. I'm hoping that he will reach out and come see me, but I have a feeling that's not going to happen. That makes me sad. Time will tell.

So today has been a little better for me. I haven't been as stressed. I'm trying to learn to accept the changes at work. It isn't easy though. Looking forward to the weekend.

    is it possible for you to call your brother or let the family he is visiting know you would like to speak with him....maybe he is waiting for you to reach out....it might be worth the effort
