Oh well...

Monday, April 11, 2011

Our old cat died and the kids cried. I will miss him but am glad he went to cat heaven. He had a tumor the size of a golf ball but his health was not good enough to have it removed. He was a loud cat--Siamese talk all the time. He tolerated the kids carrying him around when they were young and never scratched any of them! He was almost 20 years old and walked rather stiffly. I guess he had arthritis. Anyway, this cat was afraid of the vacuum cleaner but not the lawn mower. He loved to ride in the car but screamed bloody murder when we went through the car wash. I only did that once.

On another note, my nutritionist increased my calories to 1700 and although I had a hard time adjusting to eating so much, I am losing weight. I really had my doubts but... if it works I will continue to pig out!

I love spring! I am already planning my garden and can't wait to get my early veggies planted. The flowers are blooming and I was glad to see my Bleeding Heart made it through another winter. Some of the trees have leaves and we mowed the lawn on Sunday afternoon.

My boys are starting to count the number of days before finals! The year is going so quickly!

Well, my goals are to finish sorting all the home school books for the sale, build a new shed, clean the garage, continue to track my food and exercise, go fishing, open the pool in May and swim all summer!

Take care Spark friends. Stay strong!

    Wow...great, ambitious goals! I like the one about opening the pool and swimming all summer. Fun! Enjoy! Sorry to hear of your kitty's so hard to lose a pet. They're just the best things. All 3 of mine are currently within 2 feet of me. I feel like Cathy Doolittle. Hope you have a great TGIF and a great weekend! Spark on! emoticon

    I'm so sorry to hear about your cat! He sounds like he was a great companion. That's funny about the car wash. Wonder why you didn't go back? lol May memories such as that one bring you comfort and happiness. I'm sure he's having a great time in heaven, playing like a kitten again with his health fully restored! Bless you! emoticon emoticon

    I am sorry about your kitty,that is good life for a kitty to live to 20.I refer to animal heaven as Rainbow Bridge.That sounds great on the 1700 calories,it seems like you would feel satisfied and not have hunger pangs,eating this amount.Let us know how that goes for you?I do love Spring myself,if we would get some spring like warmer sunnier weather,I would enjoy it more.The year has in fact has gone so fast,our oldest daughter is finishing her second year of college and her sister will be starting high school in 9th grade next year,Our youngest son will be finishing 6th grade.You also take care and Spark On! emoticon Diana:) emoticon
