The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? Alvin and I are okay. Today is my day to be at the office. I am a bit anxious about leaving Alvin at home even though he will have our friend Gillian coming to check on him, he will still be alone. Much different than his usual routine. This is not the first time that I have had to go to the office but I will admit that each time it gives me more anxiety. He has not quite been himself for the past week. He still eats as much as I give him and would eat more if had the opportunity, drinks lots of water, pees and poops without noticeable pain or anything. It is the sleeping that worries me. He seems to wake up even more than usual. I think the arthritis in his paws is giving him grief. I have been giving him tramadol (pains meds) for the past few days and last night I have him a portion of a Robaxin pill to see if that would help him settle down and sleep. It was lights out a bit later than usual and he was still up at 3:00 and would have been up sooner if I had not coaxed him to lay back down. I will see what the weekend brings and then likely make him an appointment for next week.

Last night my friend Gillian texted me and then when I did not reply, she called. She was in COSTCO and found the Sketcher slip on shoes were on sale for $39.99. Now that is my kind of price. Thankfully we wear the same size of shoes so if they fit her, they would most likely fit me. She wanted to make sure that I still wanted a pair. YES, I said gleefully. So happy especially after my Clark’s fiasco. I am trying to sell the Clarks’ slip ons and so disappointed but oh well. I have new shoes to wear today. Now I just need a pair of runners. I have my eyes on a pair of ADIDAS. Just like them. Never had a pair of them before but I like the look and cleaness of them. Simple but elegant and look so comfy. Gillian came over and we had a Thursday night “drink” which is not a thing but thought I would make it sound that way, lol. We had a great chat while Mr. Alvin laid between us loving the attention as we took turns giving him back rubs.

Almost time to head downstairs so that I can ready my coffee to take and take Mr.Alvin outside for another pee before I leave. My ride was 15 minutes early last time so I want to make sure that I am ready just in case, she is that early again.

Have a wonderful day.

Looks to be nice out there. Was sunny earlier but I see that the sky is beginning to cloud. Oh well, rain is good. I should put the cushions back into the garage from the deck furniture.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

Yup, I did not forget that today is in fact, Friday the 13th day of May, 2022. Yes, it is.
