Happy Birthday, Sylvia. Bitter sweet greetings, but hope that your birthday celebrations were super. I feel for you with your dog...we have had to go through the same thing with animals and it is never easy. They are a part of your family and there is nothing more to say when you lose a family member.
I have been in a funk this week. No weight loss - AGAIN. I have been very good. I have been eating totally OP and only adding 1 fruit one day, 1 starch on alternating days. That was the change that I made for Phase 2. It has brought the weight loss to a complete standstill. I weight in on Friday, and have decided to go back to Phase 1 for a week before we go on holidays. I am certainly hoping that it will kickstart the weight loss once again. I seem to have stalled since I wasn't able to eat for a couple of weeks.
Well, today you can knock me over with a feather. I had a nail appointment last night, and as I was walking out of the door, DH asked me to pick up some ju jubes while I was out. He said that he and Ms Poopy Bum were going to camp out for the night in the family room. She has been banned from the living areas of the house until her 'problem' is under control.
Now you have to understand this man of mine - he didn't grow up with pets or animals, and has basically tolerated the pets that we had while out kids were growing up. When all the kids moved out, he said that he was not going to have another animal in the house - ever. I pestered him for a puppy to keep me company because he travels and is often away for a month or two at a time. He finally conceded, but made sure that I understood the animal is mine. He called the breeder, and pestered the poor man until the puppies were born. We went to see the puppies when they were 5 days old - this involves driving 2 hours each way to the kennels where she was born. Every Friday night from then until we brought her home, he insisted that we go to visit. The first weekend that we had her, we went to visit our daughter and grandkids. Halfway through the weekend, my daughter took me aside and asked me what on earth was wrong with dad. She had never seen him devote so much time to one of the animals....
When I came home from my appointment last night, the 'camping out' tent that we have for the grandkids was set up in the family room, all the blankets were arranged inside, a tv for entertainment and some snacks. They were just waiting for their ju jubes. He slept in the family room in the tent with the dogs. Oh my goodness...
One of our sons was leaving for work at 9:30 last night, and I could see him walking out to his car shaking his head. He probably still hasn't gotten over that one yet. Anyway, it was a nice treat for the puppy.
Got to get to work...well maybe not work. It's coffee time.
