Puppy Power

So we got a new puppy recently. We rescued her at the animal shelter on Friday. Her name is Sweet Pea. She is an american pit bull/terrier mix. She is almost 8 months old. We have an appointment on Wed for her inital wellness check at the vet.

We have had several accidents but she's getting better about it. She knows if she does wrong, we will be putting her outside so she starts to go for the door. When we bring her in she goes into the kennel until we let her out.

I know it's about getting her trained to go to the door if she needs to go out but it's going to take a while. In the meantime we just have to be patient and understand it's like potty training a toddler. They have accidents as well and eventually get out of that stage.

We were talking about it and have pretty much decided that for our anniversary we will just go to Sea World for the day and come home so we don't have to board her. Then when we get ready to go to Disney in May we will have to sweet talk my parents into watching her or take her to be boarded.

We are going to take her to the park on Friday to see how she does after we get her license tag.

Tomorrow starts the overtime schedule for two weeks. My team is doing it before our normal work hours. Ian's team is after work so I will be getting 3 hours of overtime each day that we share together. So that will be really nice on the paycheck.

We had gotten caught up on our bills thanks to a birthday present from Ian's parents. Then I was out for almost a week and have been grateful for that extra money as it helped get the bills paid with my paycheck being cut in half due to that.

Hopefully there are no more issues for the rest of the year. Keep your fingers crossed for us.

Not much else to say today. I will post a picture tomorrow if I have the time of Sweet Pea.

Time flies By

I can't believe it's already 5:30 on my Sunday now. It seems like the weekends fly by way too fast. Oh well, just have to remember it's 5 quick work days and then you are back at the start of your weekend. =D

Not a whole lot going on with us. We got up and really enjoyed the beautiful weather today. We went for a walk around the track by the Rec center. It's a total of 1.6 miles to complete it and we did the full loop. We are going to try and push it for 2 miles on Wed when we go back. Keep your fingers crossed for us. It took us around 30 mins to do that because I'm still going a bit slower after being sick and resting.

Work is going to be busy again soon which stinks but it does help keep the day busy at work and help the time fly by a little quicker. Before we know it the holidays will be here and then we can take a week off for our anniversary to spend with each other. Woot.

Not much else to report on. Just watching for the discounts to come around so we can book the May trip for our 5k at Disney. Hopefully by the end of this month we might know something. I know at the end of Oct/beg of Nov we can start booking our dining reservations. Yay!

Time to go fix something for dinner. Catch ya'll later!

Update of sorts

So I know I said I would be back on Sunday with an update. However it turns out when you are sick to your stomach all you want to do is lay in bed and sleep.

We still don't know what happened or what caused it but I woke up Thursday morning feeling dizzy and felt sick to my stomach. So we came out to the living room and I sat in my chair and it didn't take long before I was praying to the porcelain God. We set an appointment with the Dr as I didn't want to take any chances. They took a urine sample from me right off to rule out bladder infection. Nope, came back ok. So then they had me lay on the table and she pressed on parts of my tummy and it was very tender around the appendix location. So she had them draw my blood to make sure my blood cell counts were ok. That came back ok, so since I wasn't running a fever, they basically told me I had a stomach virus and to do a liquid diet with sips of water/sprite and to move on to popsicles if my tummy could handle it. Then on Friday I was to do the B.R.A.T diet. Which I did but was feeling ok that evening so we had a little more food then I should have tried, because I woke up Sat sick again to my stomach. So I contacted the Dr back to see if I needed to come back in. However since I wasn't presenting any new signs except for the low grade fever she just told me to go back to the BRAT diet and see how I was after that.

So she extended my return to work notice. I had Ian go pick it up along with some crackers/sprite/and more popsicles.

I have been feeling better since last night and no more episodes so hopefully that is a good sign. We went for a walk this morning to get back on track for me. It felt amazing out there. However I could definitely tell I was out of my training since last Wed. It was hard to walk the mile. It took about 10 mins longer than we had been doing. I felt very winded as well. Hopefully Wed I will be better but we shall wait and see.

The visit with mama and papa faas went really well. We enjoyed having them here and know they had a good time as well. We had a lot of good laughs and moments on the trip.

Not much else to post on right now. Hopefully the work week goes well and I should be back next Sunday with an update.
