Oh How I Love Fall!

I've enjoyed 2 days of rain on Thursday and Friday and today is sunny and cool. We took both dogs for a walk around the neighborhood and they did well and so did Roger. He has been feeling great and getting used to all the new meds. He has also been in a cooking frenzy and has made some phenomenal suppers this past week.

This evening we're having homemade chicken noodle soup and watching our beloved Cardinals to see if they can stay alive in the playoffs.

Michael has shared with me that he is looking into joining the 116th out of Virginia who will be deploying to Afghanistan within the next few months. I breathe in, I breathe out and put it all in God's hands. I'm enjoying him being here.

To answer some questions from past posts:

No, Debbie, Roger did not have to come home on oxygen. He is doing well. Me and the CPAP are not getting along although I've faithfully worn it every night but last night. I started out with it but woke up with it off. I don't know what happened. I have the Opus mask with the humidifier and I think I had the setting wrong. I felt like I was having a nosebleed the other night and it was just water. I hope I get the hang of this soon.

Whoever asked and I'm sorry I can't remember, read this link and find out all about Flylady.

The girls called and our 14 year old cat named Savannah is on the way to the Bridge. I wish her Godspeed. We adopted her while we were in Richmond and she has always been very independent.

Speaking of independent, our grandcat, Jake, is giving me a run for my money! He is climbing on everything including the 50 gallon fish tank! I open the windows for him and he sits on my sil dodging my Fall decorations and looks outside. I've never been much of a cat person so getting to grow up with Michael's cat Jake has been a learning experience.

Jake and Colin are best buddies and those 6 month olders can really run and play hard. I just love watching them.

Take time out for yourself today and write and let me know what you did for you.

Love to all!
