Good morning ya’ll!
Sarah update: Well I updated on Thursday on why I had been MIA for a bit there, so I’ll try not to repeat too much. Still waiting for the laptop to get fixed, so this is my last day of internet access until work again on Thursday. I have some posts scheduled though, and I’ll try to use my phone a little more to chat with you guys.
I had a follw-up appointment for my wisdom teeth removal on Friday, and dentist said it’s healing just fine and they gave me one of those irrigation syringes so that I can flush food out of the sockets easily. Which is SO GROSS and you probably don’t want to hear anymore about, but I totally cannot wait until these sockets close up completely. I’m paranoid about eating rice or anything tiny that might get stuck in there.
There’s some news about my little sis Amanda and L – they’re moving back home!!! She moved to a city about 1.5 hours away like 3 years ago, and she’s finally realized that it SUCKS there and she misses her family and friends, so she’s coming back by the beginning of May. I’m so excited! It’ll be so nice to see her and L a little more often. And mainly that she’s just leaving the city where she is now, cause it’s so crappy.
Workout stuff is going good. My intervals on the treadmill are now 2 minutes of running and 1.5 to 2 minutes walking, for 20 minutes. If that gets easier this week, then next week I’m going to aim for 2.5 or 3 minutes of running. I need to do more weight stuff though. My upper arm strength is SO WEAK. I just hate doing weights alone. Blah.
My darling Gabby appears to be going through her first heat. Apparently she’s a late bloomer, because according to the internet that usually happens anywhere between 6 months and 10 months old, but she’s a year old now. Anyways, she’s SUPER CRAZY affectionate, and she meows a little more often – not the loud howling I’ve heard people talk about, but just more often. She’s a quiet kitty anyways. She seems a little restless and just keeps walking around the house, and doesn’t really wanna play. Is this all normal-ish? We keep going back and forth on getting her spayed… if this is how her heats are going to be, it’s not annoying. She’s an indoor cat so there’s little to no chance of her getting out and gettin’ some from a male kitty. But the internet tells me she’s less likely to get cancer if we spay her… but some cancer risks aren’t affected if you spay them after their first heat… I JUST DON’T KNOW. I’m thinking about getting her pet insurance, so if she does ever get hurt or sick, it covers like 90% of all the costs… Is this how parents are with their kids? Searching the internet all night trying to figure out what the hell to do? Ugh.
Bookish update: I haven’t been able to finish any books this week. My last couple of weekdays off were busier than I expected, and work has been a little busy and all my downtime was spent online cause I’m internet-starved. I started The Map of Time on Monday and got about 100 pages in, but haven’t had time to read any of it since (what I read was good though). And I’m almost done with Vanity Fair! Only about 140 pages left, and the last discussion for that readalong is on Friday. And of course the last HP discussion for Goblet of Fire is on Friday too. So that’s at least two books I plan to finish this week!
If I can finish The Map of Time too, I’ll either be starting Moloka’i next, or The Iron Jackal. Let’s be honest, probably The Iron Jackal because I’m dying to read it. I don’t know how I’m going to make it to the fall when the fourth book comes out. Have you started the Ketty Jay series yet? Cause you need to.
Okay, I’m off to do some blog readin’ and then some work. Hope everyone is having a good weekend!
