Dear Diary Saturday...

Okay, so I just spent a long time doing this great update to my blog...only to go to PUBLISH POST and it gave me a fucking error! I am not re-typing it sorry. Here is the condensed version..... Coal from surgery and he did well. He opened his suture and we ended up having to spend more time at the vet with them gluing it and then taping up his whole leg. He was putting weight on it before we left. Dylan and I spent the night sleeping on the floor with him....not much sleeping actually involved.

Friday....went to work absolutely exhausted but accomplished alot. We are in open enrollment and I had to contact more than half my clients, which I did before I left at 11:30. Thank the Goddess for a boss that doesn't mind me leaving early. Stopped and got some grocery shopping done, came home to babysit Coal while Dylan got us dinner. We ended up going to bed really early.

Saturday....I put a turkey in the oven, and then headed over to take my Mom grocery shopping. Came home, made stuffing, rolls, and mashed potatoes and gravy....took half to my folks and then Dylan and I had dinner. He is now crashed out trying to sleep and I am relaxing. Again, Coal is doing marvelous and we think he will be almost totally healed in two weeks....fingers crossed.

Tomorrow....not sure because weather is suppose to be really crappy so I will probably relax.

And big love and hugs to Toni and Rob....only FOUR MORE DAYS LEFT! WOOOOHOOOOOOO!!!!

Dear Diary Thursday...

Yesterday was a really hard day. I spent most of it fighting off tears and then the desire to break things. I have been a recluse this week, not wanting to talk to anyone or leave my house. Today, the clouds have lifted and I am more myself than I have been in a week. Thanks to the help of Toni, I grew up a little more yesterday and she helped me out a lot. Love ya Tonster!

Today is Coal's surgery and I am so worried for him. I know he will be fine, but he made me feel so guilty this morning with not letting him have a big drink of water and breakfast. It will be nice to have this over and done with so we can move on.

The weekend is going to be spent helping out Coal and maybe, just MAYBE, putting up some Christmas lights. I think Sunday I am going to take my Mom out shopping, but then again, I might just chill...who knows.

Dear Diary Wednesday...

Yesterday afternoon totally fell apart for me at work and I ended up going home in a terrible mood. Lunch with a good friend was fabulous and I should have just gone home from there. I ended up going home, putting on my jammies, having dinner with Dylan, reading for a little while, taking sleeping pills and going to bed. I was in no mood for conversation, idle chit chat, nothing. And guess what? I didn't wake up in a better mood, if anything, it is actually worse. Oh, and I checked my horoscope today (like I do every morning) and it talks a lot about how my emotions will be all over the board today....I just need to settle down.

Tomorrow is the big "surgery day" for my baby, Coal. I know he is not the least bit nervous about it (because I haven't told him) but I am worried enough for both of us. I don't know why I am so worried about him having an OP surgery, but I think it has to do with the fact that I don't like ANY surgeries. But it will be good when it is over and done with and he can have a normal doggie life with a knee, better knee.

Gonna try and work on my attitude, as well as my energy level today. I gotta do something!

Dear Diary Tuesday...

My afternoon meeting was cancelled yesterday...YAY! I got to go home at my normal time, stop to see my folks, get home and mow the lawn to get up all the leaves, do a couple of things around the house, have dinner with Dylan, and relax. It was WONDERFUL....right up to the point of going to bed. I had the worst dreams last night and woke up earlier than normal and so I am a bit tired today. Oh well, at least I had a great time yesterday after I got off work!

Today I am meeting a great friend for lunch and doing a bit more X-mas shopping with her. I love meeting this woman because she is always so very down to earth, a lot of fun, and just great energy to be around. Woo hoo for lunch dates!

Tonight, not exactly sure what I will be doing after work. I would like to get a bit more cleaning done and maybe a bit of laundry, but then again, just relaxing with Dylan this evening would be enjoyable as well. He doesn't have any OT tonight, which will be nice as he will be able to get a bit more sleep than he normally does. Choices, choices, choices......

Dear Diary Monday...

Happy Monday!!!!

I can't believe how much I actually got accomplished frightening.

After Dylan awoke, we had dinner and then settled in to watch "Brothers Grimm"....what a horrible movie! The holes in the plot were so huge that you could have drove an elephant through them and the acting was atrocious! It was so bad that I could not wait until the end and almost turned it off a couple of times. I would not suggest this movie AT ALL. Thank gawd we borrowed it and didn't spend money renting it. After that, Dylan and I headed off to bed and watched a little t.v. and then slept until he had to go to work.

Today is going to be a productive day. I have a lot of reports that I just finished getting ready to mail and then I am going to start helping my co-workers get their reports out. I have two conference calls and will actually be here later than normal for one of them. I then plan on heading to my folks house after work and then, depending on if it is still light or not, I will be mowing my backyard to get all the leaves picked up. I also want to keep the backyard as "clean" as possible so that I can watch Coal when he goes outside after the surgery....make sure he had nothing he can get into or gets him excited.

Again, Happy Monday to everyone and I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Dear Diary Sunday...

It was a good day today. I got up after not having slept really well last night and just relaxed in the morning...took a nap and watched some t.v. of shows I had recorded. I then got my fish tank cleaned, my office cleaned and straightened up, and then the whole basement got cleaned and scrubbed. It was nice to take on several projects like that in hopes of getting the "larger picture" completed this week. The "larger picture" is the whole house cleaned by next weekend since I will be spending the next few weeks taking care of my puppy who is going to have knee surgery.

It was also nice having some much needed "energy change" completed in the house. Out with the old, in with the new! There was a lot of residual negativity that I had leftover that I needed to cleanse...and that has been completed. I will even "smudge" my house in the next hour to clean out all the dark corners...gonna make sure nobody has been trying to hide from me!
