Restless night waking up early going out with Murphy for potty break in the yard.....too early to take him for a walk poor dog does not understand it is dark outside..He is going to have to get used to my schedule with his stuff worked in. I am starting it today and I did it yesterday.

Georgia hope that you are enjoying your grandson.

Daisy may you have a most successful day.

Glad you enjoyed your birthday celebration yesterday. That is always fun Georgia.

Daisy way to go with the french fries.

Things are settling down with Murphy I think. We did have a big thunderstorm roll in during my eye appointment. It took a long time with a lot of thunder during the wait to see the doctor.. Then the receptionist was on the line with the computer people and could not even wait on me to make my appointment. I was there at least 5 minutes or more without anyone helping me. So I just got my friend who had taken me and left. I can always make an appointment later should I decide if I am going to go back. The eye lady is using this crazy thing when you read the letters where the letters are projected on a mirror where I cannot see the letters. On a conventional chart I can read down to line 11, so I am going to look for another doctor for my eyes. The first tech that helps her that I saw did not want to listen when I told her that my eyes do not do well with eye puffer to measure my eyes. I told her that I did not do well with that machine. She acted so condensending to me as I know how to do these things as I have done them all my life since the age of 2. What ever happened to customers first?

I will get off my soap box.

Daisy great news on giving the fries the flick. I usually just have one of my husbands plate and that is it.
Gerd is horrid so we do have to watch what we eat.

Patty I hope you can settle everything down soon. I am concerned for you getting stressed trying to settle Murphy down. It seems you are following mostly good steps.

I had my birthday celebrations with friends yesterday and it was so much fun.

Now to get back on track today.

Have a good day/night

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Think that we have the fence problem solved for now. We have gone with him around the fence line and both dogs do not understand why the fence is different! I played ball earlier with him in the yard with his leash on so that I could get him if he tried to make a break....this afternoon he wanted to make a break, however. my friend had enforced all the areas where he was getting out.

Getting ready to go to the eye doctor for my annual checkup.

Tomorrow I go to the nutritionist to see what steps I need to take for my digestion with microscopic colitis and anemia.

Everyone enjoy an amazing evening.

Good morning, I had a successful day yesterday 🌼 I was late coming home from work and he made dinner....hamburgers and French fries! I ate my burger (it was delicious) but skipped the fries . I complained about GERD which is completely the truth. I'm feeling proud doing this 💟
I have grandkids too! They are amazing. Unfortunately none of them live near me but we stay close in touch.
No dogs so I can't contribute to that ! Lol
Hope everyone has an amazing successful day.

Sweet about your grandson.

Murphy wants to go for a walk.....just too early. Do not see it happening as I have to get some things done for him like certain supplies and return some others, So after his microchip he is having go into his crate. Hoping soon that everything will calm down. I want this too work, however, it could get too expensive to continue with everything that I have had to do.

Sounds like you have the fencing under control. Things are happening fast and I see your routine coming back to normal very soon.

My grandson is 5 and he is the son of a dear friend. He calls me nanna and I see him every couple of months. He has grown so much.

Just back from some birthday celebrations. Resting now.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

I was taught how to teach him how to sit and lie down along with a gentle lead for teaching him to walk beside me. I am to work on that until the next lesson which is Friday. I am going to work with him the rest of the week. Next week I will start working on my routine schedule so I can get back stress relieve exercise so extra for him will have to be worked around that. I need to do this for myself as I want to go back to Pilates and Yoga as well. Taking Murphy to the vet again to check on his microchip and learn what I need to do to change it into my name.

We are trying to figure out how to keep both dogs happy and safe, so we are working together as I am paying tor the panels we are going to attach to the metal fencing already there that he gets out of so that we do not take away the extra space for Adam, but make it where Murphy can play out there as well.

Will see how all goes in the next couple of days.

Georgia, I did not know that you had a grandson. That is great that he is coming to see you. Is he grown?

Daisy I hope all is falling in place for you on your journey.

Have a beautiful evening.

Daisy another trick I use is when my husband orders his dessert I say can I have a tiny taste and that seems to make him feel good because it is his way of encouraging me. I get a small nibble to satisfy my sweet tooth and we are all happy.

Tell your husband the weight loss is because you have health issues and need to resolve them so you can be stronger and better for him.

How did Murphy's second training session go?

Today my grandson is coming for a visit and then we are going to friends for lunch. (celebrating my birthday)

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Daisy you can find out just how great the strength that is within you when you challenges like this one comes your way. May you find just how great your own strength can be.

May you be busy at work like you like to be.

Murphy seems to be adjusting well to this last change in his life. He seems to be bonding with me well as he is happy to be on his own. He loves to be with me when I change rooms. Now if we can get the yard situation fixed he will be one happy pup.He has his second trainer lesson today so we will see how that goes as he did so well yesterday.

May we all have an awesome day.

Thanks for the welcome Georgia and Patty🌼 It is good advice about my husband and pretty close to what I did. He is overall a great guy and a loving husband, but I think he feels threatened somehow about me losing weight and getting healthier. I've tried to talk to him about it but he just makes a joke or changes the subject. I know it is all on me to make this happen and I'm ok with that. I'm beginning to see my own inner strength. 💟

Your river walk sounds wonderful and a great place to walk.

I think that the past couple of weeks have been hard on him, however, now he is in a good place he is relaxing more.He is having so much fun right now!

This afternoon we met my girlfriend with her little dog to go along the river a lot like the Riverwalk in San Antonio. It makes up a lot of the area around the the Guadalupe River. Each year more and more is added. Anyway, we went to the main park where there were a lot of people Murphy became aware of as well as various size dogs, ducks, squirrels and children. He did well the whole time. He did have one dog he growled at in an aggressive manner, but he does that with Adam when he is playing. My girlfriend takes her dog there most everyday, so she knows certain dogs and people, so M. had to take them in for longer than just passing by. There was a place a long the river, where the dogs can get a good drink of water except he was more interested in going swimming than getting a drink. He just went right into the river trying so hard to swim. Learn something new about him every day.

Daisy welcome to the best place you could be for encouragement in groups and with just individuals. I like Georgia's idea of dealing with your husband.

Everyone have a good evening.

Patty I am so glad today was easier than yesterday. Maybe this dog is love deprived and just needs help adjusting to a new loving environment.

Daisy welcome. I have a suggestion when you husband shows you the dessert menu. Encourage him to have what ever he likes and you can read the menu with him but when it comes to ordering stick to your guns. It is very hard.

Back to work today and have gained a bit with this weekends non stop celebrations. Back on track today. Have a good day everyone.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Murphy seems to have settled down now by being all over the house, not needing to be right on top of me, eating his bone, sleeping in my grandmothers chair instead of with me,etc. He is always excited to go outside. Loves to go for walks anytime even if it is just after coming home from a walk like last night when we went on another one with Adam. A man from the park took the time to make friends with him when he found out he had an issue with men, giving him treats, letting him smell him, etc.

Going to try to start my routine as much as possible today. Have a dental appointment soon for my denture adjustment which may help my digestion problem also Feeling good after a good nights sleep.

Sleep well, wake up rested, and enjoy the day to the best of your ability.

I had the iron transfusion at the doctor's surgery. Took about 30 minutes and a couple of days later felt amazing. I have only had one so it lasted about 3 months for me. It varies person to person.

I hope all gets sorted with the dog.

Not planning to do that, however, right now the fence to the yard has to be fixed before I can let him out in it so he has to be supervised on the deck to see if he tries to jump it, etc. I am doing what I need to do even to the point of making him stay in the room with me when I am doing my energy work and it seems to calm him down, so I will be doing this on a regular basis. We did some introductory work today so that she could see more about him. Everything seen to do is linked to a male thing. Supposed to take him to the park twice a day for him to observe the people. I have been taking him on rides so he can observe. Today I went to the post office for the mail leaving him in the car for about 5 minutes and then again to get some water after our session so that he learn that I am coming back as well as get used to the people around him. Seems to be working. I have been taking him on 2-3 walks in the mobile home park, but from now on it will be in the park across the street.

Tomorrow I have a dentist appointment, then to cancel a nail clipping appointment as a friend of mine came and clipped Murphys nails. Now I can make an appointment for his microchip to be put in him.

He just came in here with a bone I had given him earlier when Adam got one.

It has been good for me to walk him as it is good for my foot as I can now put my foot into my sneaker and wear them for awhile. Now to start trying to put all my stuff together with what I need to do for Murphy. At the same time I can work on my health getting myself better. I am already doing better with solid brown BMs. I do feel better with some energy. Trampoline time to begin.

I was going to ask you about the iron transfusion....where did you have to go if not the doctor office? For how long? Every three months or so? I just want to learn so I can be knowledgeable about it when I ask my nutritionist about it.

Have the BEST evening!

Naps and walks with me yesterday. I was tired.

Today Murphy is not settling down at all so that I can do anything. Maybe today the trainer can give me some advice on how to deal with him.How to calm him down some.

I need to go do some things later when the stores have opened....have to leave the little one here.

Cool outside right now even with the sun out.

I need to work on my Satori, just when is the question.

Enjoy a great day!

A cold front (not much of one) came in with some rain.

Murphy did pretty well during the night once I put him right next to me like he would be with his mom. He is getting better adjusted where he accepts I am not leaving him so he lets me go to places in the house. He has one bed he did not destroy so I put it in the computer room and he learning he can come in here with me if he wants. A chair by the window so he can look out the window.

Feeling much better since yesterday when I started eating and drinking things for anemic diet. A good nights sleep also helps.

A friend is coming today to clip Murphys nails as he scratched me when he wanted to come to the front seat which is a no no. He needs to learn the boundaries like these and the fact that I have a life without him while he learning he cannot be part of.

Have an amazing day blossoming in front of you!

Dog parent or human parent - still needs a lot of patience and discipline. You are taking all the right steps to curb his bad habits.

You do do a lot of research just like I do about health issues. We need answers and do not stop till we have them.

Shopping hairdresser and hubby just mowed the lawn. Going out for dinner so going to have a nanny nap for about half an hour.

Hope your day is awesome.

I will ask the nutritionist about iron transfusion. He is out of town until the middle part of next week. I have done research about the foods also before I went shopping earlier today. Been eating and drinking mostly iron related foods and liquids.

Meet with the dog tainer earlier today who said that she thinks she has Chinese Crescent in him along with something else because of his body and structure. Looking at his bites, she said she thinks that it was an extra large dog which might have something to do with why he has a problem with anything bigger than him. We start working with her on Sunday afternoon.....first basic obedience class and working from there on what seems to be his problem(s). I am excited as it will help me also to stop becoming so anxious as do not know what the day will hold. His foster mom said that he did not have any problem with her husband or dad when letting him do it on his own time table. That she thought he was a dog who just bolts from what she has seen with him.

Right now I am keeping him in as he has escaped twice today before we found where we think he got out which my friend will be able to fix on Monday or Tuesday. Fortunately, Adam's parents told me that it was okay to fix the problem which is on their porch, so we are using some material we already have from my deck even though it will be more expensive because of the work involved but it was something that she liked. Just thanking God that she agreed to it. That is why we get along so well as we think about the pets safety first. It is my dog, so I told her I would pay for it.

Until that is done, Murphy is allowed in his crate, in the house, on the deck with supervision until I am sure he can't get out, and in the yard on her leash. She destroyed her harness so I have to get another one. The grace it takes to be a dog parent.

Enjoy your weekend.

I am sorry are suffering anemia too.

I take an iron supplement which has vitamin C in it on a daily basis.
I had an iron transfusion earlier in the year and it lasted about 3 months. I need another soon.

Also I eat red meat a couple of times a week and green beans. Other foods high in iron eg dried beans and lentils are good too but they give me too much gas so I avoid them. Spinach and broccoli and I just research the foods.

I hope you get some answers for you soon. Just about to bake some sweets before I go on my walk. I have a birthday to go to tomorrow and am making a sweet.

Before the nutritionist see me next week he told me to take liver pills as I am anemic too, so much that if I loose a lot more blood I will be in need of a blood transfusion! I have looked up the diet and other things that will help so I can get them today. My homeopathic doctor wants me to do it her way; except I have been trying her way and it has not helped, so now I am doing it this way.

Tired now I know why. It seems like I am getting more so, wished I could do some other things to help myself before seeing him. He is unfortunately out of town.I am going to pull myself out of this. When my friend comes, I am going to go shopping to get some things which I need.

What have you learned from being anemic that you might share?

Have a good day.

He is getting used to people coming and going, but he still is my protector when he is not sure...made friends with the workers working on the deck, so I can leave him out there when he wants to go outside. A friend of mine brought her small chichau to play, so after they played, we walk and then they wanted a drink. Sharing for my dog is not usual, however he shared his water and I gave him a treat because I was sending one home with the other dog. When he was finished he did not try to take it from him. Tomorrow they will finish with it; will paint it later. While I was gone, he tore up his bed, so he only has his blanket and towels.Taking him to see if a trainer can help with some of his behavior. She said that she had worked with many rescue dogs, so she could probably tell me. She is going to evaluate him tomorrow.

Great that he is a routine already - a good night sleep. Well done. He must feel settled in your home.
It will probably take a few months to settle into the perfect routine.

Thank goodness it is Friday. I am ready for my weekend.


Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

We had a good night sleep. He has already been out off the leash in the yuard. So busy running back and forth. Now he is inside whining and barking at something outside that I do see. He does like to look outside, so maybe not that he can get on a chair to see he will be better off.

Cant wait for them to start on the deck, then we will see what happens. His foster mom who I am in touch with sharing with her what he has been doing, says that he can really jump high

Going off later when I put him in his crate until I get back.

Soon I can go back to normal routine I think.

Have a good day.

Wow I was exhausted reading all about Murphy's day. I sure hope you can train him and that all will be well.

Could also be a bit of excitement in his new environment. Hope it works out well for you Patty.

Good to see that he and Adam are getting along.

Hope each day gets better and better.

Sorry. Someone cut a fiber line, so they just fixed a couple of hours ago. Some of these people cannot figure out where there is a line as this happens just too often recently. Its back for now.

Today Murphy was a handful and a half when I tried taking him with me. Peed twice in an office of a friend who had a dog to start of with. Later when I took him to the pet store he was growling at a dog and another owner who tried talking to him. Then after we had checked out and I was trying to put stuff in the car he decided to jump out of the cart because I must be leaving him. When the gate is left open at the top of the deck, Adam will come stand at the glass door wagging his tail. Murphy will charge at him and before he hits the door, he will growl at him. It is funny to watch because Adam just stands there wagging his tail. When they were playing outside Murphy got a hold of Adam's toy and would not let him have it back. Poor Adam would just follow him around as he did not know what to do about it! They walk well together, so I am trying to socialize him with certain people and dogs. From now on I will let him be scared at the house in the crate while I am gone, as I do not have to have this much stress. I am going to look into a trainer to see if some of this behavior can be reversed.

Tomorrow a friend who helps me with odd jobs will come start working on the deck railing so that the little dogs cannot go in and out like they do not. No one will be able to jump to the ground as we are using hog wire to keep them on the deck and allow everyone to see the other side clearly. It is going to be expensive, however, if you use anything else Mr. Murphy will keep on biting it til he gets loose. So just use the wire that will keep him in from the start. Can not wait til it gets finished.

I am tired so I will really sleep well tonight. I cannot wait until Murphy is not afraid so he does not need to be crated all the time. He is doing well with his eating and he trusts me enough so that he is not right on top of me all the time. so we can be in different rooms. He loves to be under my trampoline...when I was trying to bounce a little on it he decided he would jump onto it too and then he laid down right away. Good thing I could stop without falling.

Just one more day of work for you! Yay!

How exciting for you. I am looking forward to hearing all about him.

Happy days ahead.

I did not sleep well. Had an upset stomach and tossed most of the night.

Feeling mostly better this morning just tired.

Rain supposed to be coming over the next few days.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Yes, I am excited. If not for some things I have to do here, I would probably leave sooner just to make sure I know where to go in case I get lost. I think that I have gotten everything for him.

Off to get my teeth cleaned.

Have a good day.

Welcome Murphy to the family. How exciting for you. I pray he is a good dog.

It was divine intervention I think.

May he bring you lots of pleasure.

Long day at work and I have a headache tonight. Am about to take painkillers.

Have a good day.

I have decided Wrangler is too small for being around Adam. I have had my eye on another carine terrier who I want if she is not adopted as she needs a house with another dog to increase her self-esteem. She looks and sounds what I would like. I have not heard from anyone else about the others dogs I looked into. They want you to fill out an application just for asking a question about the rescue dogs, so fue on them as that is ridiculous when there is no picture or information about the dog, just waste of time.

Adam was over here and did not want to leave until he found out what I was doing with all the dog toys and treats. Not until he heard his favorite person next door did he want out. He has gone for walk today.

I do not use the trampoline, except for not more than 1 minute. Not very often either.

Excited about going to pick up Murphy tomorrow to bring her home. Fun buying things and getting ready for him. I was lucky to find a crate on clearance at a good price which was already made up, so all I had to do was to place it in the house. It will be easy to spoil him I guess. It has been awhile since I have had a dog.

Enjoy a fantastic evening.

Just be careful on the trampoline with you ankle. It needs to be cared for until fully healed.

Great names for the dogs.
I wish you success in getting just the right one for you. I hope he will get on with Adam.

Still dark and off on my walk very soon.

Glad you are are back on your routine or nearly there.

Have a fabulous and positive day.

Stayed home by the phone all day as she said that she would call me later, but she got busy failing to call me. I sent an email to see if Murphy was still available. He is and she will call me definitely today. I also have another one I would consider also as I like them both....his name is Wrangler. They are both about the same age and get along with others. When it rains it pours.

Started my old schedule last night getting to bed early being able to sleep til 5. I feel good. I an working on jumping on the trampoline so that my feet get better holding on to the wall and bookcase. Swelling on that foot is gone. Just finished working on my eyes with the light.

Praying that I hear from the nutritionist today so that I can start that also. I am eager to get this show on the road. So much change at one time I am amazed at myself wanting so much change at one time as this has not always been true.

I am working toward going back to the gym soon as I can when I have past several goals toward that end!

Have a great day! I am for sure as she just communicated by email that she would call me on the way to work!

Oh that sounds cute and fun. I hope this is the one for you. Sad about the family pets being killed.

Maybe by now you have had a response.

Made crumbed chicken and a salad for dinner.

Waiting for a foster mom to call me sometime today about a terrier who reminds me of my favorite my aunt and uncle had which were like our cousins. They had a westie (Mr. Chip-mine) and a Scotty(Wee Willie-brother) to begin with. When Wee got older my uncle wanted another one like him, so they got McDuff who belonged to everyone, It still upsets me when I think when my aunt was taking the for a walk at night when a motorcycle came from behind hit all three dogs, killing the first two,

Just wished that she would call soon as I have been waiting since lunch, however, she was nice enough to send me an email letting me know that she had received my request. At least it lets me out of having to play cards for today..Been a relaxing day of rest mostly even though I did get my house back in good shape.

Well, should start hearing from other dog requests, however, I think that I have made my mind up about this one as being my choice. Will keep an open mind til I meet him.

Hope you did not find too much that needed to be done.

I am sure it can be tiring. But it will happen.

I have been busy culling in each room - getting rid of things I have not used in years. I am de cluttering. I have collected way too much stuff over the years and now need to simplify.

Back to work this morning and see what needs to be done there.

Enjoy your day. Ours is going to be quite a hot one again.

Should hear from someone with all the applications I placed and questions I asked the people about the dogs. Most of them want you do an application before you can see the dogs in person. I guess to do a background check on you.

Busy doing applications until really late, so slept in. Must start working on my old schedule of going to bed early and getting up early. Will work on that this week along with starting to do easy exercises. I have been doing some balance ones on half circles that are on the floor and yesterday I tried getting on the trampoline to work on my balance with my foot by holding on to the wall and built in bookcase. Felt good, but am not going to push it too far.

In the 40's during the night, so brought in some of the plants that I thought were too tender to leave outside. Now the sun is out I can put them back outside. To much stuff laying around will have to do some picking up and cleaning up before doing anything else.

Wishing you a great day today.

I have been looking at other dogs that are available making inquiries about them, so we will see. I need to get in contact with the foster of the dog to say no to their coming.

Most of my day was looking a dogs that I might like to see. I will hear something from someone I know with all the inquiries made. I will let you know how it is. I even have my eye on one that is in a nearby town that is kept at a prison there. Really do like this dog.....no cats or children though. Should hear from someone in 24 hours.

Nice and quiet now. Ready to relax.

Enjoy your day.

Oh Patty you do not want a barking dog. Maybe that is why it was in a foster home. My friend got a dog from foster care and it does not like women and bites. Please be patient and find the right dog for you.

Sunny and hot here today. Best season as the humidity has gone and the heat is good.

Have just done the laundry and went for a walk this morning. Feeling good for a change. Soon the housework before we go out for lunch.

2 Finally heard from the foster mom who is going to bring her a week from Monday due to family coming in. I do not know if it will work out as she has some quirks which might not be good in this park. She barks at men constantly, jumps fences, and sometimes just barks. I would like to see her though.

Have already found a couple of other dogs who I am interested in and have asked to know more about them. Will see when I hear from them and what can be arranged. They are from shelters so I will probably have to go to San Antonio.

Slept well and late. Maybe that is good so that I will start feeling less tired. I am building myself up little by little.

Kathy it would be nice if we could each have the season we wanted as our friends had what they wanted. Hopefully it will start to be spring for you and me soon. We are still having some cold weather where I am. I hear birds singing so they are ready for spring too.

Georgia, so glad for you, so that during Christmas season you have a job. Any reports that they will transfer you to another store?

Just got my computer back, so I sent an email to the lady about Goldie to see what the status was of the application and of her. I am eager to hear back from them as I would like to hurry up, meet her, and adopt her. In the past, the lady has been really good at answering my emails, so hopefully I will hear something.

While waiting for my computer I have been busy working in getting the house in top shape so that if they should want to come to see where she will live that it is ready for them at any time. My whole house has been gone over with only some papers still on the computer room floor for organizing.

May everyone have a great weekend with whatever they decide to do.

Already looked at local shelters online for small-medium dogs with no luck. I will give them a chance to respond to my applications, before I try something else. I will also keep looking......

Nice sunny day today that seems to agree with everyone in this town as everyone is smiling and friendly.

Need to put away my items I got while out running errands. It is too late for a nap, but good for resting in the recliner.

Have a sparkling evening.

Everything needs questions and answers these days, I too have found that.

Going to the vet sounds like a great solution. There may be elderly pet owners who cannot look after their pets. You might get lucky....

Enjoy yoga.

Just got home at 3 in the afternoon after a day of errands enjoying my girlfriend. I finally got my new glasses for my eye exam next month.

I will just keep my eye on rescues as I have not heard from anyone who I have sent in an application to. It seems now that you have to fill out an application with your information and answered questions even before you can see if you are interested in that dog. Gone are the easy days when you pick the one you wanted by seeing them and comparing them I guess. I think that I may inquire at the vet who I have used in the past to see if they have any small-medium dogs.

Tomorrow I should be able to relax all day, so I am looking forward to that. I might try going to my yoga class to start doing light exercising. I think that I am ready to start that..

I have never owned a dog. I did have a cat once.

Working full time means the poor animal has no one to play with.

I hope you find one that suits you.

Nice warm days still and looking forward to the cooler weather. Whenever it gets here.

Slept well after an exhausting day yesterday.

More today so we shall see how we go.

Have a good day.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

You might say that I have always had a rescue dog in some way. When I was in grade school the next door boy went to Boy Scout Camp when he came home he had a pup with him. He already had a dog so he was unable to take it so he gave it to us. A big surprise for my dad when he came home from a business trip late at night. When I was married we had one also. When my daughter was small we found a dog roaming around our neighborhood that came to our house. No one claimed him, but when we were walking him a man said that he was his, however, he told us to keep him because he had someone to play with. I will not tie up an animal because he was as he tried to escape from the yard, however, one time we came home to find he had choked to death. The other two dogs I had were from the shelter, and the other one from another dog we rescued. One of the got hurt trying to escape the yard hurting his hip, so later he could not get up and down the stairs so had to put him down because of that, His companion had to be put down also because when they were seperated from each other they would howl until they were together again.

Today is a relaxing day when I slept in, taking it easy until I pick up a girlfriend to run errands, have lunch, go the grocery store, etc.

Really feeling better than I have in recent times....that is why I am taking thing slowly making sure that I am feeling well before I start back getting into my routine. Building my health is my number one priority right now. I am going to start doing so at home building up my reoutine again.

Enjoy a great day.

Oh I understand now. Sounds like a good system for you and for the animal.

Quite exhausted tonight from a hard day's work. So not doing anything but relaxing now.

They keep their dogs in foster homes, so you have to fill out an application which they go over with references listed. Then they put you in contact with the foster family where you can see and meet the dog. Then they come out to check your place out before they let the dog come for a visit to see how things would work out. So there are many times that you get back out; they will even take the dog back should you not be able to keep it. You just do not get back the adoption fee you pay.

I googled the dog you are looking for and seems cute. Good luck.
Make sure you are happy before you collect.

The sun is out and it is a bit overcast. Not too much though.

May wish for you is to be able to have a good night's sleep for this coming week.

Just from the chiropractor where she concentrated on my foot injuries with heat and her little hammer clicker.

In a little while will go for a short walk with Adam.

Am looking at a carin terrier/cockpoo mix puppy who is house, crate, leash and playing with toys trained as well as does not destroy items. She likes most dogs, kids and adults. Is low energy and submissive, has been spayed and started on her shots. Seems like a nice friendly dog, so will fill out an application so I can meet with her with her foster family. She is in a large nearby town.

It certainly is important to have answers to health problems. Half the problem disappears with the knowledge.

Glad the foot has improved greatly and now small steps to better health.

I have not been sleeping well and will try some of my older remedies for that tonight.

Have a great day/night.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

To me my health is important to me. I am only glad that I finally have an answer to why it has seemed I am getting sicker and sicker at times. It makes me MAD that this happened to me because no medical person was knowledgeable about this matter so they just put a band aid on it. I am looking forward to feeling better in the near future....already feeling better because I am relieved that I finally found out what the problem was.

My foot seems to feel better every day. I am doing well in my sandals with the bandage, therefore I am practicing in the house with my regular shoes. I am planning to use my sandals for awhile. I have not yet gone back to exercise as I want to do it slowly so if my foot got hurt that I am not aware of it has plenty of time to recoop. With everything on my plate I have plenty of things to keep busy.

Now that I have time, I need to reevaluate the things that I was doing to see if they still serve me or if I need to change everything around again. I have gotten caught up on my Satori which is one thing that is staying. I think when I am sure that my foot is fine I am going to concentrate on exercise and my diet for now until I feel better. Looking forward to this phase of life.

Nice and cool this early so it could get humid later, however, I like this time of day right now. I have an expected call with my Budda Buddy from Satori later on so I am staying home doing things to not miss her call. Then I will do a lot of things in the afternoon.

Maybe you will have more human traffic today than you did yesterday. Wishing you an eventful day today.

Wow Patty sure sounds like this guy knows what he is talking about. I wish success in healing this issue. I do look forward to hearing all about solutions.

I am sure the right dog will come to you at the right time.

Work was quiet. Tires me out more.

Learned a lot from my appointment today with the nutritionist who said that from his 30 year experience he was not a doctor, however, he thought he could help me with my main problem of Leaky Gut which was causing me all the problems. Working with him and doing what he recommends could have the problem solved in about 8 weeks. I have decided to work with him as I have heard about him from several friends who use him. He was very honest with me and told me things I could do on my own. I have not always had a good diet, so I would like to work with him. I can tell you more when I find out after my blood test. He even gave me computer websites I could go to for further information. He also told me that all babies have Leaky Gut to start with, but get their mother's good bacterial when they have a natural birth or are breastfeed. I was neither.

I have signed up for a westie to see if I can look for one which I might want. I will hear from them in a couple of days. Meanwhile I was also looking at Cairn Terriers where I saw one which is a mix her name is Goldie because she has brown on part of her with white all over. She looks like she can get in out of a car.

Mostly just an overcast day.

May you have a busy day at work with some relaxation.

I agree if things are meant to be they will be. Clover was meant for New York home.

Your dog will come at the right time.

I am glad you are finding solutions for your issues.

I too love the computer and wish I had had it years ago too.

Back to work today and see what I have missed over last 4 days.

Have a good day.

Her name was Clover, however, she was at a shelter where they take dogs up north where there is a market for dogs looking for homes. I was not able to speak up soon enough, so she will be going to her new forever home up north in New York. I will just keep looking for another one......not one has hooked my heart as I have been looking. That just means it is not time for me yet. I do want a small or medium size dog.

Have my consultation today in a couple of hours. Meanwhile I had gotten some books from Medical Medium who seems to know a lot about food and healing. He had something about colitis being the shingles gene. He also had a part in there saying that you could drink celery juice first thing in the morning on an empty stomach to heal your stomach. We will see as I am taking a diet from a different place which seems to have helped as I am getting formed material.

Again I have used my computer to do research to find a solution to something I needed to know. Wished I had it long ago when I was growing up as my life would have been so much more different.

Enjoy your day.

Pets are such a responsibility but also can be very beneficial to people who live alone. Do you have a name for her?

Good luck. Just finished the laundry and now about to clean a couple of bedrooms before getting ready to leave.

Sorry about your loss.

Just taking it easy this afternoon after getting caught up with Satori. Finally got the good feeling back after missing so much.

Sunny.....just have not been out.....like hermit......sometimes just want to be alone.

I have been wanting a dog as all my friends have one, so over he weekend I found one I want. I put a call into the organization, however, no one will be there til Monday. So hoping to hear from them one way or the other as I called and I emailed my question. It is a small 2 terrier mix adult dog. Just hope I can get her.. That is what I want for me right now.

That is good that the foot is healing. Make sure you wear flat shoes when you go our or ones that are not high. You don't want to strain it.

Lunch was fabulous with too much food and lots of chatter and fun.

Was so very tired after it and glad to go to bed last night.

Have a good day.

I am off to my husband's uncle's funeral today. Busy days.

Each day my foot is better....been walking around the house without the bandage. Preparing for the upcoming week to see if I can walk in some regular shoes.

Slept well, but still sleepy. Hope to find out why I am always tired. Need to make an appointment with my primary doctor for some of the tests.

We had a cold night in the 30's and will get up into the 70-80's.

Excellent that you had a good Greek Easter church service.

We have a similar issue with the refugees from the Middle East. They do not want to follow our laws and are on welfare.

So I am with you on this Patty.

It really is not fair at all.

Today is Greek Easter and I am about to start my cooking.
Busy day ahead.

So I will go for now and get back as I can. xox

Something needs to be done as this country is not like it once was too many people coming over the border from Mexico illegally not waiting like the legal people to become citizens. Now we have sanctuary cities where the people are telling the illegals they can come they commit crimes and kill innocent people. People who are deported come back many many times. California has become a sanctuary state. They are putting illegals above out citizens. We are loosing our culture as these people are coming over here taking our jobs, demanding to become welfare recipants without ever working over here. Many women come over here pregaant to have their babies who are born here to become American citizens. Whole families are over here on welfare which we have to pay for. May come over here however they do not try to become citizens. We have too many gangs over here along with drub dealers. For many years we have not done any thing about the problems. For many years Mexico has done nothing to keep their citizens in their country, they have encouraged them to come here, and then they get mad at us for sending them back. They have much stronger laws than we do about illegals, however, when we try to do something, they do not like it. We are not a third world country, however, we are slowly becoming one as we do not have good immigration laws. Congress the body that makes our laws does nothing to make good laws as right now the governing party does not have enough people to pass laws and the other party refuses to cooperate with us in any fashion at all! I wished there was something that we could do besides a wall....it has just come down to that.

Doing research on what I have microscopic colitis which I have come across people who have it who have reversed it by eating vegan staying away from meat, glutton, dairy, foods you are allergic and sensitive to, etc. From past experience, I know that if you stay away from certain foods for a period of time that you can reintroduce them with better results. One response I read said they had what I have and one problem was malabsorption issues and anemia. More tests for me before I know what steps I need to take like consulting with a nutritionist. At least I know what direction I need to go in now..

Glad the bad weather has passed you.

An answer to your stomach problems. Excellent - now to treat it.

I am not sure I agree with the wall but you live there and you know better.

I hope there is no violence.

Got mum's shopping done and now to start food preparation for tomorrow. I want my day to be easy and not exhausting.

Nice and pleasant today with the normal autumn weather.

May you have an enormous family Easter celebration. Enjoy.

My foot feels normal today after the whole day. In the past it would hurt halfway thru the day.

Doctor said that I had inflammation in the stomach and colon. Wanted me to take some meds for 3 weeks, however, my homeopathic doctor can take care of that without any bad reactions.

Bad weather all over Texas, however, it looks like we have dodged a bullet as we will not have it bad, just 50-60.

Each year we get so many people from Mexico and North America coming here illegally at this time of year. President Trump cannot get Congress to act, so he has ordered the National Guard from each border state to put that guard on the border to help the Border Patrol until the wall can be built. National Guard is people who enlist to help their state when its security is in question. They will be in the foreground helping out the Border Patrol.

Had nice afternoon.

Slept like a baby and do not remember getting up once. That is one thing I was worried about when starting to taper.....not being able to sleep.

Chores to be done at the house this morning with an appointment this afternoon.

Oh Patty you brought tears to my eyes with your blessing. I lit a candle for you this morning and I am also going to night services and will light another for you.

You are very kind indeed.

The Greek custard pie is very complicated. Thankfully only make it twice a year.

Dear Lord please provide Georgia with a managers job with the company she now works for which is her desire for herself. If this cannot be please open some new doors for her to find an equal job as manager. In your Sons Name. Amen

Late afternoon and my foot is just a little swollen compared to the other days.. Hoping that after these four days of taking it easy that it will get close to normal. I am limiting what I do now that I am caught up.

Have Good Friday services for Easter. Greek Custard Pie sounds good...how do you make it?

I hope your foot heals and I shall pray for that today.
Glad you slept so well.May you complete your tasks as you wish.

My state manager and HR lady came to see me.My store is closing due to poor performance (due to a shopping mall that is half empty of tenants.)

I just pray and ask you to pray that I get a managers position again as I love being organised and I do not think I can do the second fiddle again. Any way I shall trust the Good Lord's judgement.

Today off to church for Good Friday services and then to make the Greek Custard pie and run some errands before night services as well.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

After being on my foot apparently too much, I am taking some time off to baby it again spending the time to get myself together by working toward the future goal when I can start doing normal without any foot problem. All other problems seem to be under control for now.

Ended up in my bed as when the heater came on there was a vibration of blinds that kept me awake. Once in bed I went right to sleep sleeping without waking up til the light woke me up.

I do have things that I need to get done today like getting a birthday card off for my young great-neice whose birthday was a couple of days ago. And a doctor appointment to check in with the people who did my surgery last Friday. I am working on the gas and burping. Monday have one with the group about my food allergies and sensitivities and absorption of necessary foods.

Awake to an awesome day of work and relaxation.

Sometimes we just don't feel like doing things. But we eventually catch them up.

Hope you do too.

Long day and just sitting quietly tonight.


Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Sunny but cool.

Just woke up from a 2 hour nap and I wanted to sleep more.

Since I came home I have had my ace bandage off which seems to help it more as it does seem as sore as the other way. I am spending time my time exercising it to get it to have more strength.....sitting down making my toes and foot go up and down. And walking on the flat floor with my foot. While sitting to go back and forth on the side. all this to help with some of the stiffness since it has not really been used for awhile. Swelling is totally gone at this point.

Worked on my Satori last night watching a previous show and last night show. Will do some more tonight while my foot is getting stronger before trying to do anything out of this world.

After this working on the computer need to get up to clean the kitchen as it is a mess as I have not felt like standing on my feet so much. so far it has been fine. Will see later.

Be joyful with great grace.

My goodness you achieved lots. Tells me your foot is healing.

Had a busy day yesterday with this and that at work.

Rained most of the day and today seems to be clearing beautiful and fine.

Enjoy.

As I have dentures, there are times they have to be readjusted as they start rubbing against parts of my mouth. Today it was determined that it needed to be realigned for my comfort as my jaws have shrunk on the left side.

After my early appointment went grocery shopping, my little health food store, bank, post office and card shop after I checked into my other daily stop. Now home and things put up. Resting my foot as it is still tender.

My girlfriend will be back from her long trip to her uncle's funeral later today.

Much cooler day today with some sun.

Adam spending the day between the two houses sprawled out in the sun when it is out.

Start off very slowly and end the day with a bang!
