Thank you!

Monday, January 13, 2014

I really wanted to thank everyone for all their kind words! I'm trying to thank you individually, but if I miss you, I'm sorry and thank you!

Poppet got a rabies shot today. She did really well at the vet, especially since this particular one doesn't have a separate entrance for dogs and cats. Is it normal for them to sleep afterwards? She seems like she is exhausted. She did have a busy day though, I walked a mile with her, she met my mom, she went to the park and walked another mile or so and met other dogs...

Also, I was very upset when the vet didn't let me go back with her while she got her shot. I didn't want to leave my baby alone while she was getting poked and examined!!! But the vet said the shots are done in the surgery area and they don't let the public there. (I should add that this was the vet at the shelter we rescued her from, we got her medical information and we are going to find a new vet for her. Also, they were so happy to see her, and to see her with us, they said she seemed like she was adjusting to us very well!)

My mom bought me some nail polish (a red one and a pretty light grey one) and a furry winter hat. She also paid for my haircut; I have a pixie and it was grown out all gross. So now I have awesome red nail polish and a super cute short pixie cut and I'm feeling great! lol I know I'm 36 but I love spending time with my mom. She is so awesome and she is always treating me to little things. Best mom ever/

Mom and I ate out twice today, which was a bit of a challenge. I ended up having half a spinach mushroom omelet with extra spinach for breakfast and half a veggie wrap at TOGOs. It was interesting, I haven't eaten out and looked at the calories on the menu for a very long time. Normally I would have gotten chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes for breakfast!

I weighed myself this morning and it was two lbs more than yesterday. I don't think I'll weigh myself again till Friday. Kinda depressing. It's probably all the eating out!

My boys are coming home from their father's tonight and I get them for an entire week. I am so super freaking excited to see them. They haven't met our new dog yet! They are so excited to meet our new family member. They have a very little dog at their dad's. A 50 lbs dog will be so different for them!

    so glad you and the puppy are settling in with each other, it sounds like you guys had a really fun day together! Except for the vet visit, of course! Glad you had a nice day with your mom, too. I love hanging out with my mama!

    Well, this was a great post. Lots of fun / good news. And it always does a mother's heart good to hear an adult child be excited about spending time with mom. (Sorry about the 2 pounds, but way to go for staying positive.) I think your meal choice sound reasonable. What with the exercise, I imagine you'll see results in due time.

    Yes! Very normal for a vet trip / shots to wear them out. Never had a dog that didn't crash afterwards. I was going to suggest you choose another vet, but I think you said you're planning on it already. My vets have always let me stay with the dog for shots ... pretty much anything that isn't too extreme, in fact.

    I'm excited for your boys to meet the dog too. How old are they?
