    Today has been a long day, and it's not over yet! I woke up at 6 am to feed the cats and never fell back asleep, which is rare for me. I think I was thinking about that term paper and how much I wanted to get it done, so I got up just after 7. After breakfast and whatnot, I started the paper and got... Read more

It is supposed to be at least 20 pages long. I have 21.5 pages written. I don't have much left to do, just rewriting one section that doe... Read more

    I have been way too tired to blog the last couple of days. I fell into a deep sleep upon going to bed both last night and the night before. I'm hoping that my sleep schedule is getting better. I think I am sleeping better overall. I did a sleep study last night. It's the kind that you bring it ... Read more

    Today has been a very exciting day! I woke up at 6 am and couldn't fall back asleep. I thought of some things I wanted to do so I got up. I have been going since then.

    So I was really upset yesterday morning when I weighed myself and it showed that I was up 4 lbs. from Saturday. However, I knew that it probably wasn't accurate as my scale has been all over the place and it's hard to tell what I weigh. At the advice of a Spark friend, I bought and installed a new b...

    I am finishing my day with a bowl of low fat pudding. That has been my go to dessert the last couple of months. I have small snack bowls that are the perfect size for it when I make it. It's great because it's portion controlled and I am unlikely to eat two bowls. I found myself craving pudding last... Read more

    Cookie is slowly adjusting to living here. She still lives in the closet most of the time, but ventures out throughout the day to say hi and eat. She's still a little scared of the other two cats, but she did go up to Felix and sniff him today, and there was no hissing, so that's a good sign. I want... Read more

    All of my SP friends are talking about Halloween, so I better get going. At my church we do trunk or treat, which I love because I get to hand out candy. I am gated in both front and back, so no one can actually get to my door to get candy. I got Peanuts decorations through Oriental Trading Company ... Read more

    I'll make this quick, as I'm falling asleep while I sit here. I had my first Tax Planning class tonight. This is the class I have been really looking forward to. I've always been fascinated by how taxes get done and calculated, even as a kid. I would watch my Dad do our family's taxes and not unders... Read more

    My friend B. and I went to Oak Glen, CA today. It's east of Riverside about 20 miles, up in the hills near the mountains. It was nice and cool there, actually cold in the shade. First, we went for lunch. I had a roast beef sandwich with mashed potatoes. I would have liked a salad, but they didn't ha... Read more

    Well, Cookie is going to be the Queen around here once she settles in. She's taking no guff from Felix and Tang. Any time she sees them she hisses and growls. Tang backs away slowly, but stays close because he is curious about her. Felix hasn't seen her as much and was fascinated by Cookie this afte... Read more

    I slept really bad last night, only about 4 hours, and I am paying for it today. I think it was because I was nervous about driving into LA to pick up the foster kitty, Cookie. I just wanted to get her and get it done. So this morning I headed out and while there was only a little bit of traffic, th... Read more
