Oh my god I’m so exhausted! I don’t know if it’s I’m not sleeping well or working too hard but I come home dragging. Even too tired to eat most nights (yum, sleep for dinner!) my mind has been wanting to blog but the rest of me just wants to lay in a comatose state until morning. Then, at 3am when the doxies wake me up for their morning potty it’s time to start the day over again. Wash, rinse, repeat.. at least I’m off on Friday. I really need it! Going to hopefully catch up on a lot of things I’ve been neglecting.
I was accepted for another voxbox! Either today or tomorrow I should be getting one that has Calvin Klein products inside. How cool is that? I had so much fun with the last one it’s cool that they really do monitor what their members do and give them opportunities to do other ones. One of my other friends was just notified she was getting one soon, I think a different one though.. they do several a month from what I have seen. They always send you the tracking number on the box that is arriving so you can see where it is. Right now mine is in Illinois. Hurry up voxbox!
My weight loss is doing wonderful! Went to the doctor today for a new bout of hip pain that reared its ugly head about a week and a half ago. Turns out I either strained or partially tore my Sartorius muscle most likely swinging my leg over to get out of bed one of these mornings when I’m half asleep and needing to take the pups out to pee. I absolutely love my doctor, not only is he thorough and listens to his patients’ concerns instead of just going all textbook with zero bedside manner… he takes the time to listen and educate you about what’s going on with you. For instance, I had no idea that the word ‘Sartorius’ comes from early 18th century: modern Latin, from Latin sartor ‘tailor’ (because the muscle is used when adopting a cross-legged position, earlier associated with a tailor’s sewing posture). Pretty cool although the injury itself hurts like hell. So, now I get to figure out a different way to get out of bed. I was given a steroid shot which helped a lot but it’s only temporary if I don’t let it heal. I’m half tempted to bring my yoga ball back to work to use that as my desk ‘chair’. That works wonderful in strengthening the tummy and thigh muscles. My co worker’s rolled over a staple and deflated so I felt weird being the only one up front sitting on a big blue yoga ball so I took it home, but I may bring it back. For those who have never tried exercises on one, I highly recommend trying it! It keeps you constantly aware and in check with your posture and you can really feel the effects after using it for a period of time.
sigh, so… what to post as a picture of the day? While I don’t have anything vintage tonight to share, I do have another collection that I was thinking about bringing out since a lot of time and care was taken in these photos. When I lived overseas I managed a facebook page for the veterinary clinic I was working for at the time. A couple co workers and I agreed that posting pictures of their pets’ really helps boost morale and bring a good name back to the reputation of the military vet clinic. Sadly they generally have a rep of being employed and ran by people who could care less about animals. So many times we’d get snapped at with a ‘well I know YOU don’t care if my dog lives or dies!” I can proudly say that while I was there my team really turned that public opinion completely around. (but then I left, and my team slowly left too and now the place is a hole once again) Long story short though, when I left the facebook page I had created lay dormant then was deleted altogether. The public was told by the incompetent staff that remained that the page was never run by an employee but rather an imposter. Pssh… whatever. I know the truth and those that matter know the truth too. The rest of them can suck it.
So I have lots of pictures saved from my albums that were on there of our communities’ beautiful furbabies. Until I can get more old pictures scanned here are some cute animals. Keep in mind that they are at the VET while these pictures are taken and either just got their vaccinations, a thermometer up their booties or had a microchip implanted (to name a few) aside from all that, look how happy they are! That’s how much we rocked the block when I was in charge, Enjoy the ‘Puparazzi’ pictures and will try to write more tomorrow, Hooah!
