Personal Information:
I live in Central Wisconsin. I retired from my job as a speech therapist for a local school district in June 2008. Then I worked part time until June 2012. Now I am fully retired. I have been married for 35 years. We only have fur kids. Mostly we've owned dogs but in November 2013 we decided to give a kitty a chance. Tony is quite an experience.

Other Information:
I love to read, cross stitch and crochet. My favorite thing to do is to walk the dogs. My husband was diagnosed with celiac disease in January 2011 so we have had to change the way we cook and eat. For the most part, it has been a positive change. He has other health problems that limit his mobility so I care for him as needed. I also share the care for my aging father and my stepmother who has dementia.

    It's finally broken here a bit. Temps still predicted to be above normal for a while, but nothing like yesterday. I wish I could send it your way, but I'm afraid, if anything, it works in the opposite direction.

    Bear has learned a new trick. I thought I had some kind of leak in my basement, because I kept finding odd water drips on the floor. After the second day they showed up I realized that they led from my dehumidifier, which is an ancient portable unit with a high-sided drip pan on the back. I began to suspect that somehow one of the cats was getting their paws wet in it and tracking water across the basement. My suspicions were confirmed when he hopped onto the couch in the living room the other night and left two paw-sized wet spots on it. I'm not sure how or why it's happening. The drip pan has high sides (about a foot), so he would actually have to stand with his front feed in the pan, in order to get them wet. It's possible that since the water is nice and cold, he's decided it's a refrigerated kitty drinking fountain (yuck!). But whatever the reason, I'm glad the humidity's passed and I'm done with washing the basement floor, so I can unplug the darn thing! I thought that Tony might appreciate this story.

    emoticon emoticon Hi Janet,
    I'm glad she was awake for your time to visit. Amazing.
    I hope the roads will clear for you to go see your dad. Be careful friend.
    Enjoy your Friday and this weekend.
    We might go see the Black Panther. I can't wait.
    Hugs and blessings today,

    Thank you Janet, Change is always what I need and every time I incorporate one of these changes even in a minor way, I find improvement to some degree. Remember when we first attempted to eat the rainbow? Sometimes it seemed so hard to get all the colors in. Now, most days our plates are just naturally more colorful and we don't even have to think about it. LOL

    BTW...you've been missed. Hope all is well. Winter only has about 30 days and then we're kicking it to the curb so we can get out for safe walks again.
