I Love My Pack

We have a great pack of dogs right now.  They’ve patiently watched all the rescue dogs come in and go out over the years, and they’re still mellow and sweet and happy on a daily basis.  And spoiled, of course.

Tomorrow I’m going to try to get back into the sewing room….finally!  We started back at the gym last week so I’m going to monogram all our gym towels in case they get lost.  That’s the first project and may be all that gets done since there’s about 10 towels to be done (2 purple -hand and bath, 1 red bath, 7 or 8 white hand).  But I received a purse pattern I’d ordered that I already have the fabric for, so that will be on my agenda, as well as doing some more tote bags then starting on xmas gifts.  No way I could do all that in one day or even 1 week.  But I’ll get a start on it and that’s what matters.

We have been going at least 4 days per week to the gym for the past two weeks.  Since we’re old codgers coming from non-existent fitness levels it’s going to take a while to see any noticeable fitness.  But we’re plugging away and are bound and determined to make it work.  This is the 3rd gym for us in 16 years.  We actually joined this one four years ago when I retired and then neither of us ever went once.  I finally cancelled the membership.  But we’re both retired now so we’re trying it again.  We like it so far.

I think the exercise is helping me get through this bout with depression.  It’s gotten pretty bad; I had to decide if I wanted to stay married or call it a day.  I decided I wouldn’t give up without a fight so that’s the path we’re on.  We decided to move our dogs to a different vet because we’re driving 35 minutes each way to get there and then the same to get home. With Mommas and my sister’s dog it’s even farther (Galveston and Texas City) then to Friendswood and back.  We found a vet close to us that seems to offer the same value of care so we’re trying them out.  All papers turned in to the new one, and the old one has been notified that we’re transitioning out of their practice.  They’re still our friends though.  That’ll not change.

Tomorrow I hope I have sewing pictures to post.  Wish me luck!!!!
