Wednesday, August 29, 2018

It was a beautiful day here sunny and the mid 70's, today they are forecasting sunny today and in low to mid 80's. I was hoping to go to the Botanic Gardens today with my youngest son but he said he doesn't want to go because of the combination of free day along with a nice day equals a huge crowd. Plus I wanted to go see stinky the death corpse flower it has a last I heard 3 foot bud and will bloom at any time. So I'm sure that is where the majority of the crowd will be.

We had our internet service disconnected and I am not sure when I will be able to get it back so we are using our phones and we each burned our 10GB data limit in a day and a half. It is impossible during the day to use it, I am able to start using it around 11 pm my time and get around pretty good. This is really going to throw me off my routine. It is 3am my time as I am writing this. I have been getting up around noon to 1 in the afternoon the last couple of days. I was able to finally do a couple of product replacement orders this morning, thankfully.

One of my grandson furbabies is meowing at me telling me that it is time to go to sleep, he is so confused, poor guy! My other 2 grandson furbabies are asleep on my bed. This one though has to cuddle up to me for him to go to sleep. This is him when he was a baby he is almost 2 years old now.

We had a couple of weeks where is has been really hazy from wildfire smoke from California, Washington, Idaho, Montana and Canada. Last week was especially bad as it was bothering me being inside the house so I had to wear my oxygen the whole day. As a result of not being to go on my walks I gained back 5 of the pounds I had lost during my summer challenge. I did do the exercises that I could do inside. My eating is going great! I am using both trackers. I have been able to take walks Monday and Tuesday and I hope that continues tomorrow. It is terrible all the forest loss and loss of wildlife and human lives from these fires and the homes also. I love to get away from city life for a time with mountain getaways on weekends here and there, and I haven't this year.

I am going to make the grandson furbaby happy and get going to bed. Have a great Wednesday everyone! emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like a very interesting life you have with grandchildren and furbabies. My life is my Mom, my oldest daughter, and her husband. We have 3 dogs, one cat and a lizard. I haven't been able to work because of knee problems. I have been having trouble with my eating because of stress and I have put on weight. Can't wait for the challenge to start this Wednesday. Keep pushing forward we will win!
