Last Half 2022 – September

Good Morning ALL! Another hot one on the way. The sky has a smoky appearance to it as I key these words. I have not been keeping up with the weather except for the temperature so I would imagine that there are fires burning somewhere. There is enough wind lately that could blow the smoke from a distance into our overhead sky.

Thankfully it is Saturday. Alvin was up last night several times with diarrhea. Two of those times he was in a hurry to get outside. Nothing like stumbling around in the dark with your phone flashlight trying to pick it up before it hit the ground. Cleaning up diarrhea is not much fun. Sorry for the description but this is my life at the moment. “Shitty as it may be” and honestly it is shitty on so many levels. So another issue to add to the mix. Poor little guy. Today is the last day of the bland diet. I took a chance and gave him two tablespoons of pumpkin with hopes that it would help. Time will tell.

The girls were supposed to come for coffee this morning but I felt it better to cancel and keep Mr. Alvin calm as he gets so excited when there is company. I baked a Cinnamon Pumpkin Banana loaf last night in the heat (it wasn’t as bad as it has been). The loaf turned out to be very good as I tried a little piece last night.

So with the changes at work and with Alvin, I have to think about the future. I guess honestly I had the blinders on in several regards but the time has arrived to get my ducks in a row and figure out what to do. I know this sounds cryptic but I cannot be more specific other than I don’t know what is going to happen with Alvin. I hope that the ultrasound can shed some light. I am trying to remain positive. Also the going back to work. If I could remain working from home for now, it would help but it still would not change some things. Sometimes we just want to live so much in the moment that the future creeps up on us and then we have to make some hard choices/decisions. Life is not always a bowl of cherries. More often than not, it is full of incredible ups and downs. At least mine has been. So over the next couple of weeks, I will put on the thinking cap and get things sorted out and then get to work doing whatever it takes to live this life.

I am quite honestly exhausted and could really use a cup of coffee so I am going to sign off. I hope that you have a wonderful Saturday.

Earlier as I was changing the bedding etc. upstairs, I had gone to close the spare room window and blinds and noticed Bogart on top of the fence between his house and ours. His Mom was outside in the yard so I said hi. Alvin heard and so I scooped him up so that he could see what was going on. This is the life. Nothing fancy but it’s mine.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love, laughter, understanding, gratitude, focus, possibilities and coffee.

Take care.

Always, Carol & Alvin
