But I am now at 229.8, and I am officially down a little more than 20 pounds! YAAAAAY!!! (Excited? Me? Naaah...)
In-laws still about, working on closing the house deal, and we are trying to see if they will make the attempt to slow down and rest. Thus far, very, very deaf ears. Perhaps the doctor can
I wouldn't know a thing about that...
As a matter of fact, I have just agreed with Mom that a group we go to on Monday, I am going to give a pass to, as I will be doing things every day this coming week. I just decided that perhaps a day where I don't have to be in a rush to get somewhere, might be a good thing. And I keep getting reports from my CERT group that there is lots of rain coming in, to be alert to the fact we might get called out.
Oh. Uh. Quack?
Not sure what my job skills would be in that area. At least now I have a rain coat, AND a poncho, that when I am out for more than 5 minutes, I am not as wet UNDER the coat as on it. (The stupid coat I have has COTTON thread that wicks the water right to my shoulders on my old coat. I am going to try and spray some stuff to fix on it later, but now I have something that works, so it's not such a hurry. Especially with the weather.)
Rudee was extremely pleased with himself yesterday... He found a deer that he obviously suspected of nefarious doings and chased it the length of our place (I think Husband said that it's a quarter mile? Pretty long, incredibly narrow), and he ran it back to the gate. I was absolutely amazed to see this (small) deer aim it's nose, hit the opening in the gate and plow through, so as to get to the other side. Usually they just jump, but I guess Bambi-ino thought it was quicker. Rudee hasn't figured out how to get through the gate that way, or is too big too, at least I've not seen him try. He waited, and I opened the gate, ZOOOOOM, he was off again.
Ever seen a dog with a tongue as long as he is? My dog proved it was possible. Heavy panting also was heard. (Rudee, not me...) But, he scared off that ne'r do well deer, so he was happy.
The annoying part, this was AFTER my exercise walk. He is SUCH a show off.
But, at least he hasn't found the skunk.
