Good Morning, Wonderful Weekend Wassail Wishers.

First Weekend of 2013!

And we awake to this:
Days to the Season: 312
Days to Christmas Day: 354
And just look how close we are to single digits to Milestone #1, the 300-day Season Window!
Then, the next step is the one quarter Season mark.
Wow!

It was a tad warmer yesterday but still coolish. At least it was dry and sunny.
We are at 31 degrees here, currently.

Hey!
All the Christmas decorations are still up and lit at Crabtree Valley Mall. When I was there yesterday evening, it felt like we were still in the heart of the Christmas Season.
(And what a nice feeling that was to have in January!)

You have a Sensational Saturday, Everyone!

Hello!!

I can't believe Christmas is over!?

Well, I was hoping to not get the Post Christmas blues this year,

So Im still in 'Christmas moode' planning for Christmas 2013
Just ordered some Christmas cards for the exchange this year! =)

So, how is everybody doing here?
I miss you all so much!
Was hoping to catch up here..maybe later today!

Hope YOU have a GREAT Saturday! ♥

A nice day today. Took off work (I am going to make at least part of it up tomorrow) and we went grocery shopping, stopped at the vet for more Lactated Ringers and more needles, and had breakfast at Bob Evans. It was cold but that is how January is SUPPOSED to be here.

Wish is doing well. We bought him different food today and he really seems to like it. Before I feed him though I have to sprinkle this powder on his food which is a phosphorus binder. I guess phosphorus can cause quite a problem with kidney disease. Plus we had to make sure the food was below 20% protein. We put him on canned Science Diet for senior adults, only 4% protein !

I am just so blessed to have him still with me. I know that could all change in a millisecond but I am hoping......

We will have blood work done either at the end of next week or beginning of the next to see how his kidney panel is (BUN, creatinine, etc). I am hoping and praying his BUN is closer to normal (30). It was 129 when he was admitted and 69 when he was discharged.

I put my advent calendars away today and it wasn't too bad. I still have my tree up. That is going to be the tough one.

I know there are many here at MMC who are sick - I am praying you all feel better.

Dawg - A special prayer for poor Snowball.....I HATE when animals get sick - They can't tell you where it hurts, xo.

Seawaters - Hope you are feeling better xo

I have now lost nearly all the weight I set out to. I have lost 20 pounds and just have 2.5 to go !!!!

I hope all have a very Christmassy magic evening and special (((HUGS)))) to:

Ella, Harlowe, Snowball, Gomez, Ophelia, Sidney, Alex, Merlin, Snickers, Victor, Daisy, Diva, Mickey, Palmer, Mouse, Bo, Chico, Meca, Alvin, Charlie, Gary, Bailey, Jerrold, Irving, Martha, Uncle Julio, Missy, Scooby, Sasha, Jacob, Cracker, Bunny B, Penny, Pocket, LuLu, Bear-Bear, Stripey, Holly, Fate Puppy (London,) Buster, Missy, Baby, Santa's Polar Bears, Sangria, O'Malley, Beau, Taz, Zema, Rizzo, Bella, Happy, Sam, Guinness, Holly Noel, Larry SR, Mama, and all furkids everywhere xoxoo




Congrats on the weight loss! That is awesome!
