A-Weigh We Go

LilySlim Weight loss tickers

I feel like I'm starting to get caught up on my rest little by little.  CME and I were talking last night and I realized that I've kind of been on the go since my surgery; year-end things for my boys, meetings at church, a new grandbaby.  It kind of makes a little more sense that I'm still feeling tired.  CME said, "I didn't have major surgery and I'm tired."  I'm still tired today...but I guess it's normal.

Temps today are going to be record-breaking (near 100).  Makes me just want to sit in the cool house.  However, CME and I went out for a bit to run a couple of errands, one of which was taking the dogs to get their nails trimmed.  For those of you that don't know about our dogs, one is a German Shepherd / Lab mix (~66#) and the other is a Beagle / Rottweiler mix (~88 lbs).  Walking them around the pet store for a while afterward tested my strength for sure.  You'd think I'd take the smaller of the two, but she's a total spaz on a leash which is a lot more work.  The bigger of the two is usually well behaved when out so it was easier...until she saw the kittens.  Then it took all the strength I had to keep her back from the cage.  The other dogs/puppies don't bother her, but when she sees a kitten/cat she is a wild beast!  Regardless, I was still able to control her for the most part.

I need to look at more recipes for the pureed stage.  Variety is going to be key for me...though I have come to really like the cottage cheese/marinara that I've been enjoying.  Have a crockpot meal I'm fixing for the family tomorrow.  I may try pureeing it as the ingredients aren't bad at all.  We'll see.

Needing some scripture about strength and rest...suggestions welcome! ________________________________________________
