Whew! I made another one–mostly intact, healthy and still kicking. This year saw challenges with fostering dogs, changes in our health, a financial redirect, more emotional awareness and some character faults I realized and had to learn to deal with (in the I’m-too-old-to-change-now category). Other than deciding that we can no longer do dog fostering anymore there weren’t any surprises or big upheavals. With the health issues there were largely age-related changes and challenges but nothing we haven’t dealt with on one level or another. The rest is incidental really, but issues dealt with nonetheless.
All the dogs are healthy and happy with the exception of Jolie’s issues which we are dealing with as they come. Daisy is still at the sanctuary and no adopters on the horizon yet. She is still happy and enjoying playtimes with her canine friend, Toby. January starts another year of vaccinating all the animals which means more vet trips but hopefully no big surprises.
I’ll start doctors appointments next Monday with a surgical pre-approval with my GP, surgery on the 15th and a dental visit on the 21st. I’ll get to wear a big, ugly black boot for some weeks which I’m sure I will come to hate. I may do some rhinestone decorations with it if I get bored enough. I’ll add that to my To Do list.
Ronnie has added a depth finder to his arsenal of fishing equipment so he’s liable to catch more fish and have more fun in 2015. He’s currently on vacation and enjoying his time at home doing a lot of nothing (I’ve watched more television in the past two weeks than I have in a long time). I asked him today if he’d missed work the past couple of weeks and he said a firm “NO!”. He’s increased his pension savings in the past year so is likely to make retirement an item on his To Do list.
As bad as I hate it (and yet look forward to it), I intend to do the normal-for-everyone-else dieting when Ronnie goes back to work Monday. There’s no sense in even trying to change a habit with him underfoot…and he snacks all day and night. Even when I’m not thinking about food he’s eating something else. Plus the holiday desserts still exist and at times I will partake though not every day. There are still a few things I want to cook before I cut the calories so will try to get those out of my system before the belt-tightening begins.
I have been doing the Technical Preview of Microsoft Windows 10 and until recently found no problems with it. Lately (and several times tonight) it has frozen up and rebooted with no explanation. I don’t like this a bit. Now in the middle of this post I may have to log out and change computers.What a bunch of crap! Guess I’ll close and call it a day………Welcome to 2015.
