Yep! It's my birthday! The one day I can have all the cheesecake I want and not regret it. Until tomorrow, anyway.
I keep thinking I'll update this when I can post pictures. I do have pictures, but they're on the computer upstairs. Heaven forbid I sit down up there and post them.
So anyway... There's been Mother's Day, my Dad's birthday, a new dog in the family, falling off the yarn wagon in a big way, finishing up the tiles in the kitchen, and instant gratification in the garden department. Fry is also wearing a splint, not a cast anymore. She had a green tree fracture, which is healing very nicely.
After getting a checkup physical, I've decided not to have one ever again. They're rechecking the mammogram due to a spot that's probably nothing. I wore deodorant, which is a no-no I'd forgotton. Mary reminded me, much to my relief. I suppose I'll have to return all the yarn I bought for knitting in my final days. (Hey, it's an excuse, ok?) The CA-125 came back great, always a concern. The cholesterol didn't. 254 total, so the doctor put me on Chol-B-Gone that very day. I'm sure to take meds as directed, since the diet and exercise is still spotty. The new dog helps, amazingly enough.
New dog? In our/my cat-only world? Alas, yes. We have a dog. The neighbor found him wandering around, couldn't find an owner, so we've got him for now. Probably for forever. He's a beagle/basset mix named Lucky and is a decent dog so far. Fry is on poop patrol and is taking care of him so far. I knew we were keeping him when Hubs bought a fancy-smancy leash instead of the cheapie $4 one. All three of us take him for a walk every evening. Since I've started watching what I eat and exercising, I've gained weight. Of course. NORMAL people diet, exercise, and lose weight. I gain. Isn't that fun? Still, even if there's no changes on the outside or scale, there's changes on the inside with the arteries.
I finally opened my present from Susan! Thank you! I love them! Pictures later, but for now, they're lovely cloth coasters. Just gorgeous and a funny card, too. Also finally, I'm breaking down and using my coffee/espresso station from my parents. I didn't want to use it and mess it up before now. Fry is going to love the cappuchinos, too. We're all coffee drinkers over here. Not a lot, and the youngest get the decaf.
There's an inch to knit on the legwarmers, a sleeve and a half on the cardigan, and I really need to post a picture of the tam. Maybe after dishes, laundry, and a nap. ;)
