I am still on the job hunt. I have been looking for 2 months now. I just keep trying, knowing that I will find one sooner or later. I’m trying to make the best of a bad situation. Some new jobs have been posted so that is good. Have you experienced job cuts in your areas?
Baby Buster (our dog) is now on bedrest. He was just at the vet recently to have his phenobarbital levels checked. Everything was ok. Then he started twitching the other day. The next day (yesterday) was even worse so we took him to the vet fearing some sort of seizure activity. The good news is that it is not a seizure. The bad news is that it could be a slipped disc or possibly just a pulled muscle. He is apparently having pain in his neck though not severe. Still, to be on the safe side, he has a pain pill now and a muscle relaxer. He is to be on bedrest for 2 weeks. That is the hardest part. He does not like being in the crate but we really have to make sure he doesn’t do any jumping or running. We think he injured himself jumping off of our new bed becasue it is quite high. :(
My sister Cherie is coming out for a visit. She gets here on Sunday! The weather has been great. It should be in the mid 90’s when she gets here. The pool water is just a tiny bit chilly.
We’re starting to really get Timmy ready for his move to CO at the end of the month. I’ve picked up some household items for him here and there and he is sorting through what he wants to take or leave behind. He may have a room mate which is someone he already knows. He is looking for apartments now. I think it would be awesome if the room mate situation works out. It would be great to have a friend to hang out with plus split the costs the first year. He’ll know within the next week or so because at that time he’ll have to start applying for apartments.
I have stopped eating meat recently. It isn’t something I set out to do or have to have willpower to do. It just sort of happened. It started by visiting the PETA site. Oh my goodness that site will make you cry if you go there! It is very extreme. http://www.peta.org/ Now instead of eating meat, I think of it as eating “flesh.” I have lost the taste for even my favorite meats like bacon. I am still eating eggs and dairy though. I would eat fish if I liked it but do not like the taste of it so don’t eat seafood. I have been eating tofu for protein. I’m going to be adding more beans into my diet because I love beans and need the fiber anyhow. The only “challenge” is figuring out how to make the same recipes I used to love using tofu instead of meat. I made tofu nuggets (like chicken nuggets) but the texture wasn’t quite right. I made a lemony bok choy tofu soup that was delicious though. I just have to try it out and see what we like and what we don’t.
I’m not trying to convert Tim into vegetarinism (or anyone else) but he is totally ok with eating more tofu and less meat which is nice. I think vegetarinism is something you have to feel inside you. If you have to force yourself to do it, it seems like it wouldn’t work. Denying yourself something you like to eat is always so hard to do. I probably wouldn’t have even visited the PETA site if I didn’t already have an interest in it. For me, I just lost my taste for meat. I’m not even sure if this will be lasting or not but I don’t want it or miss it right now which is an interesting change in myself because I have always been a meat and potatoes person and I don’t even know any vegetarians.
If you have any good meatless recipes or vegetarian websites please let me know!
I hope all is well with you, readers. Thanks for visiting my blog. I will be doing some more Old Hollywood posts very soon. I’ll be adding more favorite websites and blogs also. I would like to get a professional camera once I start working again. That is on my wishlist. I would love to be able to post my own photos. I’ve been totally inspired by other blogs to start taking more pics. I can’t believe I am up to over 1300 visitors in less than one months time. So fun!!!!! You guys are totally awesome! Thanks for the awesome response to my blog and for some really nice comments!
Love and Hugs and wishing you a wonderful day, FeeFee
