What are you doing today

Posted: 21 May 2015 - 12:24 PM

Hi Roxie :)
Make sure to schedule in more "self" time.
Also, play more. Just giggle and be silly.

Hi LR2015 :)
Hope today rolls by at a slower pace for you.
Good luck and WTG! for your to-do plans for today.

Hi Jess :)
Here's wishing you great success with your plans today! :D
I totally understand the OCD stuff. The more stressed I get the more OCD I become, making me even more stressed. (((hugs)))
WTG! for clearing the table and actually using it to eat at!!! :D

Yesterday was very hectic, with demands pulling me in every different direction. Then I was too wound up to fall asleep at bedtime.
Hoping today I can at least do a few things on my to-do list and possibly even get in some rest.

Hi! to everybody!
Would love to hear you're all alright. :)

Hello :)

Still riding this big wave of OCD symptoms but I'm here and I'm okay. I have several things I want to accomplish today for general house maintenace so I'm hoping that will make me feel good to finish and keep me distracted in the process.

Have a good day everyone!

Hellooooo, Roxie, Tillie, Tatoulia, Diane, Jess, bitsy, Karl, Dave, and others who might be reading.

The last week has been really, really busy. I'm hoping to slow down a bit today. I still haven't caught up on posts from the past week, and I hope to do that today. I also expect to be doing some laundry and doing a little bit of vehicle clear-out (just a little bit).

Drive by iced tea clink, Roxie!

Hugs to all!
Posted: 20 May 2015 - 08:31 AM
I agree that "just a note" would be good to see. Folks? Hellooooooo out there.

LR, Tat and Tillie, it's so good to see your posts. Just a drive by and a coffee clink is heartening to me.

I've been cranky lately and I'm not sure why, but I know it means I need to take care of myself a bit more. :(

It is downright COLD here and that makes me miss my southern home where the weather is mostly wonderful.
Posted: 19 May 2015 - 11:58 AM
Good Morning Everybody! :)

Hi Tatoulia :)
WAY TO GO! and Good Luck! tackling that clutter magnet area! :D
Some places need to be checked frequently to catch the clutter before it takes root.
Study the area, take mental notes and devise a plan of attack.
The best defense is a good offense. ;)

Hi LR2014 :)
Happy to read that you broke up the decluttering tasks with some fun family activities.

Hi Roxie :) "clink"
You accomplished a lot and I especially like reading that all your "new" clothes are put away nicely. :D
Almost all my clothes almost all my life have been and still are "second hand", "hand-me-downs".
I'm what they call a "Second Hand Rose". ;D

Yesterday was chaotic, lots of people to interact with.
Today only one appointment to the local clinic at 1:00pm.
But lots to do around the house.
Need to tidy up a bit around the house.
Need to prepare some real food for myself, been eating too many nibbles since they are convenient.
But then I will have to clean the kitchen, lol.

Everybody take care and write when you can.
"Just-a-note" would be wonderful to see. :)
Posted: 18 May 2015 - 09:02 AM
Coffee clink, Roxie! Wow you got a lot done! I had a unproductive weekend and didn't get my routine maintenance done (sheets changed and washing towels and sheets). The weekend was FULL and I'm exhausted so I'm not mad at myself. Will get caught up today or the next.

I have discovered an area of my home where I just let stuff collect. I had it clear a week ago when the friend came over. I need to make that a no clutter zone. I put my grocery bags,my purse, etc in that spot on the floor, and the items seem to collect more items such as shoes. Now that I see it clearly, I am going to clear it right now, and make a promise that I will check that spot daily.

Glad to hear from LR and would love to hear from Bitsy and Diane and everybody else. Dear Tillie, write when you can.
Posted: 18 May 2015 - 08:50 AM
Hello, Monday, friends. ::clink:: Tillie, how are you holding out? ((T))

LR, Tat, good to see you "report in" as requested. We on the board seem to be in a bit of a lull.

Not sure I mentioned that I hung on hangers and put in the closet my "new to me" Good Will blouses and jeans. Picked up all the alreadly-read books off my bed and moved them along to bro to check if he wished to read them before donating. Moved more papers into the stack on the dresser. Emptied some brown paper bags and put them in one spot to re-use or recycle. Filled in my big medicine box for the week.

I kept losing track of what day it was.

Posted: 17 May 2015 - 01:05 AM
OK, Roxie. I haven't gotten caught up on reading all the posts yet, but I saw your request for reports. Here goes...

Spent a couple of hours today working once again at that "family home" I've mentioned before. Spent some of that time cleaning, some of the time boxing up things that the family will probably keep, and some of the time tossing a number of items. I spent most of the day, however, attending some very fun family events.

There you have report for the day. Iced tea clinks.
Posted: 16 May 2015 - 06:42 PM
Sending you much love, Tillie.
Posted: 16 May 2015 - 11:29 AM
Good morning everybody :)
HI! to everyone.
My house is a disgusting mess.
Today I plan to clean the bathroom, sweep and wash floors and vacuum the carpet.
Need to wash dishes too.
This will be just the minimum amount of cleaning needed but I will feel better about living here when it's done.
Without any interruptions it should take about three hours, house really is very tiny.

Keep up all the wonderful progress you all have been making.
And even the little things really add up and you should celebrate getting them done too, not just the big major ones. (((hugs)))
Posted: 15 May 2015 - 12:08 PM
HI Everybody! :)

So much happening.
Another surgical procedure, new home therapy, techniques & equipment.
Lots more driving all the way to Reno for appointments.
Also have other kettles on the fire, like two different part time jobs.
And to top it all off I have been sick but have to keep on going anyways.
So, whenever possible, I have been taking care of myself with eating and resting.

Promise to write more consistently once things settle down a little, hopefully that will be soon.

Posted: 15 May 2015 - 09:08 AM
Ollie Ollie, home free. Everybody report in! :)
Posted: 14 May 2015 - 06:23 PM
What a wonderful, full day, Roxie! Congratulations!

Very tired after a long day at work and then walked home. Have concert tickets so will be leaving here in ten minutes. Barely enough time to catch my breath.
Posted: 14 May 2015 - 10:06 AM
Coffee clinks all around. Tat, great to hear from you and that you are progressing. Sounds very good.

Yesterday, bro and I did a lot of cleaning. I vacuumed around the dining room (computer room), cleaned up all the paperwork spread around my chair and on the table (sort of sorted them into manila folders), wiped everything down, picked up some things from the living room, got rid of dead flowers from Mother's Day, cleaned all but the floor in my bathroom. Phew.

Then we had a wonderful visit with three of our girl cousins. It was truly wonderful to see and talk to them. We got pictures and it wasn't until the end of the visit that I got real tired.

Posted: 13 May 2015 - 12:51 PM
Hello everyone!

Roxie, great idea on the notebooks and sheet protectors! It is very heartwarming to see! Glad you are taking such good care of yourself and am pleased that your breathing is good enough to be off the oxygen a little bit.

Tillie, I am peeling the layers of the onion! Remarkable. Someone on here once likened the process to building up muscles to get rid of things -- how it gets easier and easier to de-junque (nod to Roxie) and de clutter once you've built up those mental muscles! The onion provides me with another good visual.

LR wishing you much strength, physically, emotionally and spiritually as you clean out the family home.

I am very happy with my home right now. I find that decisions re what to keep, what to buy and what to get rid of come easily to me now. There are tough moments here and there. But I think now in terms of vacuuming and dusting, because my surfaces are mainly clear. And they are clear because I have space for everything. I treasure my space. So much so that I want more space.

I think of all the different tips I've gotten from everyone here as I go through my house. And I need every one!
Posted: 13 May 2015 - 07:21 AM
Yesterday I went and got a bone scan. Then I got to go spend an hour or so at the local Goodwill and found some nice tops, two pair jeans, and a pile of books.

I also got my brother two notebooks (2") that I can insert the plastic page sheet protectors. Then I'll teach him about putting all receipts, warranties, instructions and such into the sheet protectors (one per object)so that he'll always know where such things are. Works for me at home. I've seen bro searching too many hours for misplaced things. :)

Today our cousins are coming to visit. Not sure how many, but there are four sister cousins in that family and we have not seen them in many years. I hope I can stay awake long enough to visit with them. Before they arrive we have some cleaning up to do.

I ran out of oxygen at the Good Will but handled just being there well (finally)! Didn't get to go to Staples for the Redweld I need for my own junque.

Hugs to all.
Posted: 12 May 2015 - 10:10 AM
Good morning to all. Good to "see" you, Diane!

I am expecting to join some other family members this week to do a lot of cleaning at the "family home" I've mentioned a number of times on chat. Will probably be kind of bitter-sweet to be in that particular location. Decades worth of memories tugging at me. Hmmm . . .

Looking forward to hearing more from all of you. Hugs.
Posted: 12 May 2015 - 09:45 AM
Good Morning Everybody! :)

Hi Diane :)
Wonderful to "see" you! :D
Tell us more about what you have been doing around your yard. That always inspires me to get out and do more around here. ;)
Good luck with your list of plans. Hope you cooked something really tasty.

Hi Tatoulia :)
All the kitties say "HI" too.

Decluttering is like peeling an onion, there are layers.
First time around you peel off the top layer and every additional decluttering session you peel off another layer, and so on and so on, until you finally reach a stage where you feel you have "just enough" stuff.
Not too much but everything you truly want and need.
Then to maintain this, once or twice a year look around the rooms, closets, cupboards to see if there are things that you are finished with, have found replacements for, and toss or donate what you no longer want or need.

Finishing up my morning tea and planning to go outside and do some gardening type stuff.
My yard is filled with Humming birds. :D

So wonderful to see you all here. :)
Posted: 11 May 2015 - 01:39 PM
Well, I am equally excited to see posts from Cory and Diane! Truly is a special day.

HELLO CORY! What a treat to hear from you! Thank you for all you have done for us!

HELLO DIANE! I have missed you! I actually thought of you when I was having my friend over. I remember a year ago when you got your new freezer and y our friend came in and sat with you and talked. I have to tell you, other than papers on the coffee table I didn't have anything to worry about. I was relaxed and happy and dint apologize. It does not look like I have too much stuff, but I know I do, and I have plans for it. I am still waiting for my sister to take some things and then I will be able to store the things I must store (winter bedding, for example) and make some more decisions. It was wonderful saying yes and not making excuses. I am so pleased.


Great day with good friends (I'm talking about you)
Posted: 11 May 2015 - 12:58 PM
Hi all, I read through some posts, good to see your thoughts and actions.
I have been obsessed with my rocks, and let the cleaning tasks fly away. Tat, I still have too much stuff too. I feel overwhelmed with the amount of work I need to get done in here, thank goodness it is finally raining, keeps me inside. Happy you had company inside your place Tat. I could not do that today.
Tillie so great you have been consistent on here, good you are handling life so well with all that is going on.
Today I think I will list things I want to get done and see if I can actually get some things done.
Wash dishes, clean counters, cook.
Posted: 11 May 2015 - 10:48 AM

GREAT to "see" you. (((hugs)))
I know you have been so very, very busy.
Good luck and best wishes with your new HOARDERS program.

Just wanted to check in and say Hi to everyone! I have been gone a lot lately filming a ton of new episodes. How is everyone doing? It is great to see all the familiar names on here still :)

Keep up the support for each other!

Oh Tillie I am so glad to hear that. I had read about Marty's plight and was worried. Also glad that twinkles is doing better.

Hot and humid here today, I hated it. Got my sheets changed, took care of brother, had dinner out with mom, boyfriend and brother. Now ready to just lay down and relax. Got two loads of laundry done but essentially a very busy day with no real housework. Was on the move much more than would've liked.

I do, however, find I feel more rested when I do fun things on the weekend. If I just take care of family and relax, I'm not nearly as well rested come Monday.

Have a busy work week ahead and more stuff to do next weekend too. Will eventually find some time to take a day or even half a day off from work to spend with boyfriend. Right now we've been spending good time together with our friends who are visiting but no time just to be us, Will shoot for some time in the coming weeks,
Posted: 10 May 2015 - 04:15 PM
Good news!
Marty (the cat) was dislocated and it corrected it it's self.
Posted: 10 May 2015 - 12:11 PM
Posted: 10 May 2015 - 11:49 AM
Good Morning :)

Hi Tatoulia :)
So HAPPY you had a wonderful time with your friend! :D
Hope you find the time today to get rested up.
That food is too bland smelling. Oatmeal has more appeal to cats. HaHaHa

My plan for today is to rest.
Got the kitchen all clean yesterday, YEA!!! me. :D
But that is all I did get done LOL. ;)
Went out back about sundown to bring in Marty (the cat).
Usually he comes to me but found him laying under a huge sage bush.
Had to crawl under the sage to get him.
Some how he hurt his back left leg and couldn't even stand upright.
Checked him out and the only time he said "oweee" was when I touched his left leg.
Great news is that this morning he is much improved, can stand and limp/hobble about.
His appetite was not affected.
Must just be sprained or something. :D
Will keep him on bed rest and see if he needs to go to the Vet on Monday.

Have a wonderful day :)
Posted: 10 May 2015 - 07:34 AM
Hello everyone! Good morning and Happy Mother's Day to all!

Roxie good work! As soon as I get out of bed I'll toast you!

Tillie, what a tough few days with the water well problem. I'm happy about Twinkles. Really funny how no one liked the prescribed wet food! You'd think someone would find it tasty

I spent the day with a friend yesterday. She leaves in a week and I've had such a good time with her. We went antiquing again yesterday and I bought only for my boyfriend. It's been nice having a friend visit who likes to do the same stuff. I used to do a lot of that with my mother but now we can't do it as much.

I am going to try to do something this morning before my brother calls me. I am so tired today and just want to rest up.
Posted: 09 May 2015 - 11:39 AM
Good morning :)

Hi Roxie :)
WAY TO GO!!! for all your accomplishments.
Make sure to take plenty of "me time" resting up.

Hi Samantha :)
Why don't you come down here and share your days activities with us. :D

Think I should clean the bathroom and the floors today.
I don't want to but they are really a mess after all these past days of plumbing work.
But then again, maybe I will wait to make sure there won't be more messes made over the weekend.
Thinking the water leveling doo-dad in the toilet tank has lost it's mind and will need replacing.
I will wash dishes today, have a sink full right now since the water was turned off periodically and I was busy doing plumbing anyways. :D
Twinkles is doing fine. No more pain meds.
Has a healthy appetite, no swelling.
Right now he is napping on the back porch on the cat tree in the sunshine. :)

Take care. Try to schedule in some time to enjoy Springtime. ;)
Posted: 09 May 2015 - 09:43 AM

Not much to say for myself. I ordered finally a part for my nebulizer that I need, and sorted out some papers, kept the MRI appointment, got tired.

I congratulate those who have moved along their task line, hug those who need it, and want to see lots more posting! HUGS
Posted: 09 May 2015 - 12:08 AM
Hi Tatoulia :)

Hi Everybody :)

Been having problems here these last several days.
Problems with our water well.
Water level is down due to drought and our well is very ancient and narrow.
We have water but very little water pressure since the well refills slowly.
This causes the water pump to run overtime to keep up with the demand.
Trying to get things figured out and also working on the well causes sediment to stir up and foul the water lines in the house.
Finally got the toilet water inlet unclogged and it fills the tank again. Yea! for a flushing toilet again!
With everything else going on here I am at the end of my rope.
Would run away and live in the woods but the cats don't want to and I don't want to leave them behind.
Planning to sleep in all day tomorrow, hope life lets me. :D

Take care :)
Posted: 08 May 2015 - 06:55 PM
Thank you for your encouragement and praise and help!

I just logged on to see that Gem has given us an update and she's had her bad situation escalated to worse. I feel sad right now.

What a solid, reliable group we have. This is the most wonderful place to be. Thank you all for sharing so much of your lives.
Posted: 07 May 2015 - 11:59 PM
WAY TO GO! Jess :)
Hope you had good luck finding the perfect recycling bin.
Happy you painted your nails. Bet you look pretty. :D

Hi LR2014 :)
Always nice to "see" you :D

Hi Karl :)
Hope you are doing well and still having fun geocaching and gaming. :D

Twinkles is doing very well.
Refuses to eat the Veterinarian prescribed food so I broke down and fed him " Tasty Treasures", his favorite canned cat food.
Offered all the other cats the prescription canned cat food and none of them will eat it either. HaHaHa
Posted: 07 May 2015 - 11:47 PM
(((HUGS))) Tatoulia :)
Posted: 07 May 2015 - 11:08 PM
Very exciting news, Tatoulia!!! WTG!!
Posted: 07 May 2015 - 09:43 PM
I did it! House wasn't perfect but solid progress and I'm pleased. And I didn't apologize. How's that? In the process I got a big bag together for goodwill. Very pleased.

I am slowly living in a home again. A place where I can feel proud and happy and satisfied. My friend loved my house,and was just so dear.

Much love to Tillie and twinkles and Jess and Samantha and LR and Diane and Bitsy and Roxie. If I left you out please forgive me. The love is there, the memory is not.
Posted: 07 May 2015 - 12:04 PM
Hi Everyone. I'm trying to get house to an acceptable level for my visitor today. I'm staying relaxed and calm. Unfortunately got nothing done last night. I watched a movie then fell asleep. I still have too much stuff. I need to reduce my possessions. Too much/too many. I'm going to have to make more tough decisions soon. But for now, I will put that anxiety to one side and I will continue to clean. I am proud of myself for saying yes when friend said she'd drop by. What a good feeling to say that. I think I can get house to a fairly acceptable level. A year ago I couldn't have done it. Today I can.
Posted: 07 May 2015 - 09:56 AM
One of these days I'll remember to be around when there's a chat.

Today I've done my morning routine and a load of laundry, already folded and put away. I painted my nails just to feel a bit pretty :) Almost time for my hike.

I've got to get to the grocery store today and I'd also like to buy a recycling bin for the house. Like kitchen trash can size and it will fit in the laundry area off the kitchen and garage.

Kind of a chill day. Wishing everyone well!
Posted: 06 May 2015 - 07:46 PM
A few people were in the chat room at the designated time yesterday, but it seemed that nobody had anything clutter-related to report, so we just had free-format chat.
Posted: 06 May 2015 - 12:47 PM
Tillie, thanks for the update. I'm glad Mr T is doing better and hope the therapy goes well today. Ahh Twinkles. I bet a rest in the sun will be a nice treat.

I am working on getting house acceptable for company tomorrow. My brother took me to goodwill to donate a small table. I bought two beautiful tables at a consignment store last weekend. I had been admiring them and finally bought. They are on either side of my bed and they are gorgeous. One of the tables that used to be next to my bed I will give to my sister and the other one I just donated. I felt a little twinge as I donated it because it is just so sweet. I loved it enough. Probably fifteen years of love.
Posted: 06 May 2015 - 12:13 PM
Good Morning Everybody :)

Hi Tatoulia :)
Happy your Procedure went well and that you took some "me time" afterward too. ;)
Have a wonderful visit with your company. Relax and enjoy it.
(((hugs))) :)

Hi Roxie :)
Medical appointments and tests are so tiring.
Make sure to pamper yourself and rest when you can.

Greatly missing you all who haven't posted in a while. :(
Wishing you all the best. (((hugs)))

Today is the home nurse and physical therapist.
He is walking just fine, great balance, no cane, fast paces.
Actually, much better than before the blood clot and surgery.
Only time he needs PT is when the PT is here and he walks slowly and needs the cane again.
Hoping today he will show him just how well he is really doing.

Twinkles is doing well. Refuses to eat the smushy food and begs for the kibble.
But no dry crunchy kibble for one week.
I think he should be drinking more water, I will continue to push that.
He tried to get Marty (the cat) to play "pat-a-cake" with him this morning. Marty said "no" :(
Maybe after all the home invaders leave I will take him out in the garden for some sun.
He would like that. :)

Gotta go, TTYL
Posted: 06 May 2015 - 10:53 AM
Hi Roxie! Medical appts are draining, aren't they? Thank you for your recent post urging us to get proper screenings. I put off my colonoscopy for a full year after turning 50. I just finally ran out of excuses.

Will be making a cup of tea soon.
Posted: 06 May 2015 - 10:21 AM
Hi, all. I'm just stopping by for a cup of coffee. Not much to report except a lot of upcoming appointments for tests (MRI, bone density, etc.).

Reading with interest and concern all your entries. Love, all
Posted: 05 May 2015 - 07:09 PM
Hello everyone! Poor Twinkles. Poor little thing.

Jess, Good job! You are an inspiration! LR I understood what you meant--please don't doubt yourself! We are all familiar with and beneficiaries of your unending compassion. My brother is very disabled, physically and mentally and emotionally and despite that, he can still be manipulative. I think we all have a little of that in us, and it's good to commiserate and get a little laugh out of our situations. Trust me, when I had a surgical procedure last week (went well) I milked it a little just to avoid having to take care of other people.

BIG NEWS! A family friend is visiting from overseas and we are having dinner Thursday night. She said she'd meet me at my apt (she has never seen it) and instead of making up an excuse, I said, sounds good, here's my address. I figure I have six hours of cleaning to do (no idea where that # comes from). at least my bedroom is up to date/clean and clutter free. I will be busy tonight and tomorrow and the next day, but I can do it! No more making excuses, the time to clean is NOW!

I also have been having some dental work, Jess. (And Twinkles). Had a painful tooth a few weeks back and needed a root canal. That is all finished as of tonight. I wouldn't wish tooth pain on my worst enemy.

Tillie, keep your chin up! You are a fabulous caretaker of dear Twinkles. And us. And everyone else.
Posted: 05 May 2015 - 11:18 AM
Hi Jess :)

Making GREAT progress there.
Hope your dental work is doing well and not giving you any grief. (((hugs)))

Hoping I can spend the day at home today.
Lots of little things have been being neglected here.
Twinkles is recovering as expected. Poor baby.
But I have syringes filled with pain medicine that I am to give him orally two times a day, so he can sleep through the next three days.

Posted: 05 May 2015 - 09:14 AM
Thank you for the encouragement everyone :) Feeling a bit better today. I had some dental work yesterday and handled it pretty well. Today I've got a therapy appointment.

I've managed to vacuum the bedrooms and around the hardwood areas. Need to mop/scrub still but I'm happy I started it. Did my morning routine and stripped the beds instead of making them because it's that time of the week.

Cleaned one bathroom, restocked the other.

One foot in front of the other.
Posted: 04 May 2015 - 07:32 PM
Good Evening :)

Been a very busy day.
Twinkles is home from the Veterinary hospital and is recovering nicely.
Stoned out of his gourd with medications and sleeping it off under the bed.
Did a lot of other things today too but nothing fun.
Honeysuckle is blooming now. :)
Looking forward to bedtime.
Posted: 04 May 2015 - 12:57 AM
I understand what you are saying LR2014.
Same here, I would never doubt someone's claims and wish I were always believed too.

Posted: 03 May 2015 - 11:04 PM
As a follow-up to my last post, I just want to be clear about something. I find it very frustrating and discouraging when I am feeling weak, exhausted, and just generally awful physically, and then somebody (especially some family member) implies that I'm exaggerating how badly I feel. (Not saying that that happens often, but it definitely is within my realm of experience.) I never want to downplay another human being's pain, exhaustion, or illness. The situation I described in my post below was a specific one. This very elderly family member would make a big show of feeling bad in front of the therapist, and then seconds (and I do mean seconds) after the therapist gave up and left, the elderly family member would suddenly be all smiles and would offer to jump into the car with me (which at his advanced age was no easy task) in order to run errands with me. What amazing recovery!! (Uh, huh. Right.) Sometimes he truly was tired or in pain when a therapist arrived, but there were times when he clearly was trying to put on a show to get the therapist out the door faster. :(

I wrote this post because I know that there are many people on this site with significant illnesses. I also know that many of us suffer from what I call "invisible" illnesses, such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. Sometimes, people with such illnesses are not believed and are treated as if they are exaggerating their problems. Worse still is when they are treated as if they are imagining their if the problems are all in their heads. I do not ever want to be or to even remotely sound like I am insensitive to the real physical struggles that so many of us here on this board have. Ever.

Lots of hugs to all.
Posted: 03 May 2015 - 04:56 PM
Roxie, Tillie, Jess and LR --GREAT to hear from you all! And thank you for the encouragement.

Tillie, I do think kitty at will be okay. Boyfriend's cat had teeth pulled a few years ago. We fed him cream cheese when he got home and some chopped up turkey, just so he could eat soft things. He was definitely nit himself a day or two after the surgery but then he seemed like a kitten again, it's scary and upsetting but ultimately Twinkles will feel better.

Jess, please don't feel even a minute of guilt--we all suffer and have difficult times and this is the place to be. I sometimes feel guilty when I'm being negative, then I feel guilty when I feel too happy. Ridiculous, let's treat ourselves better than that! Read ing your insight into your struggles helps me to look at my own in a different light. Thank you for that,

Roxie's! Great day at Walmart yesterday! I bet it felt wonderful to be out and about, Thank you for reminding me to use the gratitude list. I trust your intuition and will give it a shot.

LR I am always so happy when you have posted. You are a dear friend.

Have to shower and get ready for dinner now. Will post again later,
Posted: 03 May 2015 - 03:45 PM
Hi Roxie :)
WAY TO GO!!! for finding a cart and getting some shopping done! :D
Yes, after all that exercise, you needed to sleep in and rest up today. (((hugs)))
So happy to hear that you felt up to an hour of shopping! GREAT Progress.
An hour in Walmart exhausts me and when I get back home all I want to do is rest up.

Thank you so very much for telling me about your experience with cats with this problem.
This really makes me feel a lot better about what we have planned for poor Twinkles.
Doc Doug says they all need to go and then the problem will be all gone. No more pain and infections.
He said that many cats still eat kibble after they heal, crunch it with their gums or just swallow it whole, like most cats do anyways.
HaHaHa :)
Only draw back is that without the canine teeth, many cat's tongues tend to stick out. ;P
