Feelin’ gooooooood

It seems ever since I posted that I was going to work more on blogging, my life has been super busy. But that always seems to always happen, right? I had a handful of errands to run almost every day of the week and not only that but I felt GOOD. Occasionally something would pop up with my health to which I would get some rest, but the next day I would get up and be productive once again. I was so productive that I began to question it since that rarely happens in my life. Normally because of my fatigue, it can take some time to finally perform a full task. I usually do a little at a time and divide that time up between days. I’m not lazy, the act just exhausts me. So either it’s the nice weather, or the fact that I admitted to the world that I was going to work harder, I am happy that I am getting things done. 🙂

When going on errands (and if the weather is decent), I try to bring Storm with me. Not only does it get her out of the house, but it helps wear her out (hahaha!). She sits in the front passenger seat and quietly waits for me to return. People usually walk by and laugh as she sits like a human just chillin’. If I get an extra burst of energy I will stop by a park so she can get out of the cramped car and check out unfamiliar smells. One day, I stopped a bike trail location that had a bridge and took a couple pictures of her. I want to stop by again in a few months when there is more green showing, center the picture a more to my liking and take off her leash. I’m impressed she did well with these shots as there was a nearby runner she was trying to say hello to.

So yeah that’s it. Nothing exciting happening but getting plenty done. 🙂

 

"Mom, I need to go slobber on that lady before she starts running again!"
“Mom, I need to go slobber on that lady before she starts running again!”

I was scratching her arm for a bit and she started to fall asleep sitting up. Hahaha

Wordless Wednesday – Pouting

I can’t remember the last time I participated in Wordless Wednesday. I’ve been good this week with getting things done online. Not sure why and I won’t question it. 🙂 This picture was the result of me denying to play with Storm when she wanted. I wasn’t feeling well and I told her to go lay down. She went to her bed & sat like this. Someone sure knows how to make a person feel guilty! She is such a little shit. Hahahaha!

We finally have Internet!

Yayyyy! About a week ago, I had a company come and set up my Internet & cable. It’s been fantastic to watch my favorite tv shows again and to watch the news to know what the weather will be like. My mother is relieved that I don’t have to ask her that anymore. 🙂

And the net–it’s fantastic to get things done online at calm pace instead of going to my moms and being a spaz for an hour to do all of my short updates on everything. Most importantly, it’s such a relief to lay in bed on a bad day & use my cell or Kindle without having to worry about using only a certain amount of data. That is definitely a big one.

Storm is loving it here. It’s a very family oriented place, so there are kids always running past our windows with high pitched screams that make me cringe. As a result, Storm always wants to be watching out the window or to be outside. She LOVES kids and is very gentle with them.

That is all for now, I know I have  TONS to catch up on regarding all of you. 🙂 So happy to be “connected” again!

Patience 

Well it seems as though my Episcleritis is flaring again. The other night I rubbed my eyes in bed. Apparently I rubbed them too hard because my right eye was killing me for the rest of the night. The pain was even keeping me from sleeping. 

But even before that, I began to suspect my eye going haywire since I had plenty of eye goobs & my eyes had a secretion that I kept trying to wipe away (different than watery eyes). 

Yesterday morning I woke up to find my right eyelid swollen. Since this is all new to me I have no idea what I am supposed to be doing before it gets too worse. I bought some regular eye drops but am not used to using them yet so I haven’t used them very much. Hmmmm… I suppose I should be taking some Naproxen (aka Aleve) during this time… 

My swollen eyelid did not stop me from getting my baby some treats yesterday. I struggled trying to decide which big name company to go to. I don’t like PetSmart for the reason that they discriminate & will not allow any “bully breeds” attend their daycare (FYI-American Bulldogs are considered a bully breed). I think it is utter bullshit because bully breeds already have a tough enough time with discrimination. So for that reason, I like to shop at Petco. However, I like PetSmart’s toy/treat selection better. 😦 This trip I decided to go with PetSmart. 

I ended up spending much more than planned (usual how it is) but I figured it has been a while since I have spoiled her this much. One item I wanted to make sure to get was a rawhide bone. Yes, I know some of you are against them but it’s a good energy outlet for her on my bad days when I can’t walk/play with her. And yes, I supervise when she is chewing on them. 

I only gave her half of the bone yesterday and set it on the book stand. This morning it took me a couple seconds to figure out why she laid next to the book stand and not me. 

Ahhhhhh food always wins. 🙂
