    I am feeling fairly good yet. I love lemon zinger tea though I also enjoy a cup of green tea too. Love having the honey in it. I am a coffee drinker as well though, since my surgery, I have not been enjoying it as much. That and yogurt, especially Greek, have just lost their taste to me.

    Charlie's feet are my nemesis. Charlie is a dog with allergies and they are bad. His allergies come out in his ears, skin and feet. We did allergy shots for several years, give him a prescription medication, feed him a special food and give him several doses of fish oil daily. His ears and skin have become manageable but the feet still give trouble. He gets irritated, starts to lick which causes more irritation and the cycle begins. A two week course of antibiotics, maybe repeated, and soaking help but the older he gets the harder it gets to clear it. Charlie had managed to stay out of the vet's office for four months which is unheard of for him. I think it's because he wasn't being walked so he wasn't going around picking up allergens. Poor guy hates the vet even though they do all they can to make him comfortable. They had mats all around for him so he wouldn't fall and helped me handle him in and out of the exam room and back into the car. So thankful for their kindness.

    Are you celebrating extra much right now? The advent of the new semester and being able to stay home is definitely cause for celebration. emoticon

    OMGosh, that is so funny! I am supposed to be starting everything effective March 1st also!
    Definitely need a virtual party, g.f.
    emoticon Have you explained what the excitement is about to Bear & Tigger? I keep telling Lily, but she just doesn't seem to be getting it! I guess she will when I'm home before starting all my volunteer work.
    Have a great ""relaxing"" day :)

    I know what you mean, I've gone through periods where I just got sick of tracking and stopped for a while, but so far I always come back to it, for the same reason I like to-do lists and Google Calendar - it's easier than trying to keep track in my head. But I'm fairly loose with it - if I eat out or make a complicated recipe, I estimate. And on those days where I can see halfway through that I'm not going to be able to stay in range, I've started going in and upping my range 200 calories for the day. Seems silly, but it works for me psychologically.

    Yes, I'm having lots of issues with mis-information given to me by the ss office. And some pretty important info too! Then, they send back forms to me that they actually gave me the envelope to mail to them in January. I'm going to have to take another day off (and those are very limited right now) to go down and hopefully get a few things fixed. I'm hoping once things are (hopefully) in place correctly, they'll stay that way!

    Hope all your issues get worked out also!

    In once sense...I think we trade one type of BS for another, LOL.
    Hope you and the furry ones are having a great weekend!

    I did step out of the garage a couple of times yesterday to keep an eye on the dogs as they did their business. I did not even go across the street to get the newspaper and mail. I had visitors in the evening and asked one of them to go out and bring it in for me. Too cold and icy for a walk today but I might venture out to the grocery store.
