A New YEAR 2023

Good Morning ALL! Well it has been an interesting night and day. So back to yesterday. I went to my Optrometrist and had the pressure test redone and good news to report. The pressure is good so I am good until December 2022. Afterwards I raced over to the Vet to pick up more medication for Mr. Alvin. Before starting testing the Vet wanted to try another medication. This is a liquid which Alvin has to have every three hours and 30 minutes before he eats his meals. The liquid is to be administered via a syringe. Well the first time that I went to give it to him was before his supper and that did not go well. I managed to get most of it down after I had to chase him around the kitchen and under the table. The next dose was scheduled to be administered at 12:30 a.m. (not a good sign). I set the alarm and Mr. Alvin woke up one hour before at 11:30 and then started an up and down night. I gave up after trying to give him a dose for almost one half hour and I was so tired by that time. We laid back down on the sofa and went to sleep and I set the alarm for 6:30 a.m. This actually turned out to be perfect. It took a lot of coaxing but I managed after about 30 minutes to get the next dose down this throat. Then set the alarm for 30 minutes and laid back down. At 7:04 we were up and I laid out his food and then ran upstairs to brush my teeth, wash my face, apply moisturizer and apply my eyebrows before literally jumping into my clothes and then back downstairs. Oh, I turned the computer on so that once I came back up it would be ready to go. Back downstairs, I cleaned up pieces of rice that had been flung around the perimeter of his food bowl. I let him outside and grabbed my coat and put on my boots and followed him outside. I noticed more blood in his now diarrhea. I pray that this new medicine will do the trick and he will be okay without having to have more tests done. But I am not sure at this point. He has such bad gas. He is back on the bland diet. Oh and my eyeglasses are now in ready to be picked up, of course they arrived 2.5 hours after my visit yesterday. Just figures, lol.

I am really late and have to fly. Have a wonderful day.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

P.S. perhaps the missed medicine will work out better as now the next doses will be at 2:30 and 10:30 p.m. – I can work with that. Hope my little trick works for the next dose. Bye.

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 24th day of April, 2014.

YAY, it is Thursday.

How are you this fine morning?

I can see breaks in the somewhat cloudy sky.

It rained here solid for more than 24 hours.

I would say that the ground has been moisturized.

Just like applying a good heavy cream to your face and going to bed.

Mr. Alvin and I decided not to walk in the rain last night and instead just curled up on the sofa and watched of the shows that I record.

Okay, I did do some housework ….. it is hard not to …. just lay around …..

Anyway, it was a glorious evening ….. I am very grateful for it.

What do you do in the evenings?

After supper and clean-up is done.

Perhaps you have children and there is homework and preparation for the next day.

Perhaps you have a spouse and you just spend some time together catching up on the day’s events.

Perhaps you are alone like me with a dog ….. most nights it is a walk together followed by a cup of tea (not for Mr. Alvin, giggling).

Perhaps you are surrounded by family and you might take a few minutes to relax …. ” me time.”

Whatever you may be doing or whomever you might be with ….. just enjoy.

Having a nice evening is preparation for a good night’s sleep and a great tomorrow.

So remember have a great evening ……

I hope that you always remember to make each day the best it can be.

Keep your focus on the great things in your life.

You always get what you give out.

Good thoughts ….. more good thoughts.

You know what I mean.

Have a great day my friends.

Special Hello to: everyone who wants their life to be better ….. it can be …. one thought at a time.

Always, Carol and Alvin
