Life Updates And Some Chat

Hi everyone…I felt like writing a post today and thought I would just kind of chat with you all.. 

Happy February! It’s been a busy week so far and it’s only February 2nd but the first week of the month is always busy for me because I do my monthly food shopping and figure what bills need to be paid when and all that good stuff.

This month I got a nice break with the food shopping. Usually I go to Costco one day and stock up on our bulk items for the month like toilet paper and paper towels and then the next day I hit the Walmart and get the food we will use for the month and then the third day I hit the local grocery store and get my produce. I like getting it there because it’s always so fresh. This is a tiring routine for me as I don’t have a lot of energy to begin with but, this month hubby went to the Walmart and did the bulk of the shopping while I did the Costco haul. That was a huge help to me. Then one day this week I”ll go get some produce.

An update on the dogs. Our Toby is still having tummy troubles so today he went to the doctor , they took a sample (use your imagination), and they sent it out to an outside lab. He’s being tested for a lot of different parasites. I hope we get some answers soon so we can get him to feeling better.  Matty, one of my lab mixes has been on a thyroid pill for a couple weeks now since we found out he’s hypothyroid and I think they are making him mean. He’s been super nasty to our other dogs including his brother who is and always has been his best friend. It’s been a lot of fun dealing with that. (yes, that was sarcasm). Matty will go in on the 15th of this month to have his blood run to see where his levels are at and at the same time his biological brother Jake will be tested to see if he’s hypothyroid as well. Fun fun (more sarcasm)

Bailey is holding his own. What more can you expect from a fifteen year old diabetic Lhasa Apso? And last but not least, Sarah is doing just fine. Growing like a weed and turning into a beauty.

Hubby still has a sinus infection and is on round two of antibiotics. I finally got hit with it over the weekend and am headed to the doctor on Wednesday morning. Seems there’s some kind of bug going around that’s causing a sinus infection because many, many people I know have it and it seems to not want to let go.. Crud…

We have had some nice weather here the last two days in South Carolina. 70’s and sunny. I’m still wondering if it’s really February or if I slept through Winter and woke up in Summer because last night I got a mosquito bite on my arm and this morning I almost got stung by a bee.. Hello? February? But ah, this is coming to an end. Wednesday and Thursday we are to have rain and thunder storms and the temps will drop back into the 50’s which, I’m not complaining. I like the cooler weather plus, I am not under six feet of snow so I’ll take it!.

I guess that’s it for tonight. I hope you all had a wonderful day!

  1. Robyn, glad Lou was able to feel good enough to go to the store….I know that has been difficult for him. Sorry you have been sick sure hope it clears up for both of you. Also that they get some answers for Toby and Matty and Jake. It’s same old same old here. It is Thursday and we are expected to get a bunch of rain as well and then get cooler. It has gone up to 78 if you can imagine. I am trying to make healthier choices and exercise and I am struggling a bit. One day yes one day no if you know what I mean. I have to ask God for help he always gives it but sometimes I don’t listen. Just kinda the way I deal with stress food not good. Hope you have a great rest of the week….I always enjoy reading your post or seeing your videos… ya….Debbie


    • Hi Debbie, We have the same weather here today.. in the 70’s, humid and pouring. I TOTALLY understand what you mean. I don’t always listen either and I hate to admit it but usually I don’t listen at all. We all have our vices.. You eat when stressed, I shop when stressed which is not good for me either.. So I understand what you’re saying.. I”ll pray for you and you please pray for me.. Love ya, Robyn XO
