The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, a post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things received, and share news about what is coming up on the blog for the week ahead. To get in on the Sunday funday, see the rules here: Suday Post Meme.
I spent the week writing my backlog of reviews. It was a struggle since these were the books I read in April and May, so I was going back and re-reading large chunks of them. With so many historical romances, and two Alex’s and then two Daphne’s, I started mixing things up. I’m still working on the last couple. I’m also considering joining a new meme as Top Ten Tuesday and Feature Follow Friday both seem to be faltering. I want to finish my current book, Blue Steal, before I start any new posts.
I discovered that all of my audiobooks from Audiobook SYNC I downloaded last summer and earlier this summer are gone. I was sad and then that little voice inside of me that keeps telling me I am turning into a hoarder like both my parents rejoiced and threw cakefetti all over the place.
With shift change last Sunday, The Man took it off and we had almost a full week together. We went on our 2.5 mile walk every night. Baby and Cera loved it, and so did I.
I also noticed something BIG.
I’ve lost weight!
I don’t know how much exactly because I don’t believe in scales (I only ever know my weight when I go to the doctor), but can tell a big difference around my hips and torso. My sweat belt is significantly looser and I’m able to wear some undergarments that I bought back in April that were too small and I was too lazy to return. Now they fit, so I have lost considerable inches around my hips. I’m starting to see results from my Plexus regimen! I didn’t know when I would first notice any changes. This is my second round with Plexus. The first time I didn’t stick to it, and I quit it. I started in mid-May and I am seeing results in the one place I thought I never would. And I really haven’t changed my diet at all. I don’t eat out as frequently as during the school year, and I’ve only had soda about five times all summer. That’s really the only thing that has changed, and it’s minimal. I can’t wait to see how I feel in two more months. YAAAAAAY! If you want to know more about Plexus, I’d love to chat with you about it.
Thursday night took a bad turn. Cera wandered into off and came back to the couch smelling funny. I went into the spare bedroom (Baby’s room, although she doesn’t hang out in there much anymore) and found two huge spots of throw-up on the bed and what I thought was a silver dollar size amount of diarrhea. When I started to clean up, I discovered it wasn’t fecal matter. It was blood. And it was midnight. I got dressed and got Cera ready to go and we drove to The Man’s sector. Cera received an officer escort into the emergency vet clinic. They did x rays to check for blockage, fecal test, and some others. She was dehydrated. We were encouraged to leave her overnight for IV fluids, or we could bring her home under constant monitoring. I wanted to bring her home. We got some meds and ID food. I don’t think Cera understood what was going on; all that registered was DADDY. Like being on a field trip in the middle of the night without Baby to see Daddy in a weird place was normal. I will say he looked pretty damn sexy in his uniform. 🙂 When he left we turned around and looked out the window and waved to him. The front desk girl awwwed.
Emergency Vet visit at 1:30 AM almost an hour away after finding a fairly large amount of blood from Cera. She could have stayed overnight or go home with constant monitoring. She couldn't eat or drink for 4 hours after discharge. Awake for nearly 24 hours now and fading fast. #sistercera #emergencyvet #blood #doglife #booboobelly #dogmom #tiredmom #24hr #onlywater
