Forgive me, its been a little over 2 weeks since my last post. Unless I'm involved in the A/Z challenge, I usually don't like to post more than once a week, so its not unheard to go a bit without blogging, but I guess its time for an update.
Not that I have much to say. Yet I'm sure I'll find a way to say a lot.
I always do. You know me. I can't write short posts for the life of me.
What am I up to? Absolutely nothing. The usual. Work, morning walks, evening walks with Koda, vegging out reading blogs and playing games in the evening.
Is the weather great? Yep, it is. Mid 70s, light breezes, very pleasant.
Is Koda well? Yes, but he is blind. We might not want to say it, we might want to say he's losing his sight, but the reality is, he hardly has any left. He misses popcorn thrown to him by hubby that he used to grab mid air. He bumps into things. He goes into the room smelling for who is in there. Is he still full of life? Yes. He has spunk, he is adapting, he still loves food. So we adapt and work around him.
I froze a few weeks ago giving him his twice a day insulin shots. I had done it faithfully, missing a few, for over 3 years, but had a time a few weeks ago when I didn't do the technique right and he yelped; several shots in a row. I would have the occasional one that he would yelp, but never that many in sequence. I could absolutely not do another shot. So we switched. I hold, hubby shoots, the shot gets done. I find myself less stressful.
I absolutely love reading books on son's tablet. Found a site where I can even download free books to read. I'm encouraging him when he goes out of town in next week to Las Vegas to leave the tablet home. I might even bribe him. But you didn't hear that from me.
I've been writing letters several times a week to a dear friend's family member who got a very long sentence in prison for something they did. Were they guilty? Yes, I think so. Does that still negate the feeling that their families love them and am devastated about what happened? No. Can I write a letter a few times a week and perhaps bring a smile on their face? Yes. Can I pray? Always. Its hard to write a letter to someone in jail. I've written letters to senior citizens. I've written letters to soldiers. But never in this circumstance. I just go with what God puts onto my heart daily. I'm also glad Koda still provides silly stories.
So this is me. What I'm doing, where I'm at. So much more, but that's okay, that's enough for now.
