Dear Diary Friday...

I ended up staying at work kinda late last night and then headed over to my folks house. My Mom has a cat that is acting like he is sick, so I called the vet to see if he would let me pick up a prescription of antibiotics, which he did. I then spent time giving the cat syringes of water, syringes of antibiotics, and shoving food down his throat. He was really unhappy with me when I left him alone, but at least I know he is hydrated and has some food in his tummy. If he is not better within 3 days, he is going to the vet whether he likes it or not.

After that I headed home and took care of my animals and then cleaned up the kitchen and headed to bed. Unfortunately, this medication does not want me to sleep so I tossed and turned for qutie awhile. I think I managed to get about 4 hours of total sleep, which was better than I expected. However, it has made me really drousy this morning so I am sucking down a diet coke to see if it will help.

I am really looking forward to spending some time tonight with good friends. It will be fun to celebrate Rob becoming a U.S. Citizens and just hanging around some really positive energy. Plus, anytime spent at Chet and Shane's HAS to be a fun time....nothing else is allowed!

Tomorrow Dylan and I are doing some more Christmas shopping. I am not really sure what we are going to buy, but it feels good to be picking up a few things every weekend. will either involve me taking my mom grocery shopping or me getting some cleaning done.....I am going to push for cleaning so I can take her shopping on Monday....but we will see what happens!

Dear Diary Thursday....

The doctor's appointment yesterday went wonderful. I have a new PCP and she is the best! We talked through some issues I have been struggling with and she is having me try a new medication for three weeks and if it works, I stay on it...if it doesn't work, then we switch to something else. My favorite part about her is when she said "I won't give up on you.....I don't do that and we will find something that helps you out." How about that for a doctor!

Coal is doing great and I could not be more happy. He has a follow-up appointment next week and then we should be DONE! Woo-hoo!! He has been the best patient in the whole world!

And let's start today with saying....HAPPY SECOND DAY AT BEING A U.S. CITIZEN!

Dear Diary Wednesday...

Okay, I have to admit this.....I hate traffic. There use to be a time in my life where sitting in a car for an hour did not bother me. That apparently has changed. I went to my folks house last night to take them to Costco...approximately at 3:45pm. We headed down the road and got to which it was a traffic jam for no apparent reason forever! It took us from leaving their house to get to Costco over an HOUR! I wanted to pull my hair out. However, once we got there we had a great time and my parent's were a lot of fun to hang out with last night. We then headed home and put away their groceries and I headed home to a nice dinner Dylan had made, took a bath, hit the bed. It was nice to just relax after a long day.

Today is my doctor's appointment. I am a bit nervous, a little timid and scared, but I think it will all come out good for me. This is a new family practioner for me and I am excited about meeting her and FINALLY having a PCP.

Coal is doing really well. He is a total pain in the ass to give pills too, but what do you do! All of the swelling is out of his leg and his incision is turning into a very nice scar. I need to remember to make an appointment for next week to have his check up.

Speaking of next week....can you believe it is almost time for T-Day! HOLY SHITS! I can't believe how quickly this year has gone.

Happy Wednesday!!

Dear Diary Tuesday...

Yesterday ended up being a lot of fun. Toni met me at my nail place and we got our nails done together! She has a gorgeous bronze color on her tips for Vegas/Thanksgiving and it was a lot of fun just hanging out for an hour with her. Plus, her hair looks FANTASTIC!

After that I went home and Dylan went and got us dinner and we got caught up on our TiVo....or as caught up as I could stand before I was too tired and wanted to go to bed.

Today I woke up at 1:00am and just really could not go back to sleep. I tossed and turned for a few hours until my alarm went off. Unfortunately I am now really dragging. I hope to get some energy before my two back to back meetings start this morning or I don't know what will happen!

Tonight I am heading over to the folks house to check on a possibly sick cat, move a safe, and then take my Mom to Costco. Hopefully I won't be so tired that I am cranky with her.

Happy Tuesday!

Dear Diary Monday...

Yesterday I did....NOT A DAMN THING! I got up, put on some loungewear, took Coal for a very small walk and that was it....the entire extent of my Sunday. It was pathetic but at the same time, pretty restful. Oh, and Coal is doing WONDERFUL.....I could not be more pleased with his progress. Dr. Mike is an absolute genius when it comes to knee surgery on dogs.

This week is gonna be a bit busy. Today I am getting my nails done, tomorrow taking my Mom shopping, Wednesday I have a doctor's appointment, Thursday.....I can't remember, and Friday is Rob and Toni's party. Saturday will be spent doing some Christmas shopping and I think on Sunday I will be getting shopping done for Thanksgiving. All in all, I am not doing so much that I am stressed out, but I am still going to be busy.

Happy Monday to everyone!!
