Restless Sleep

I slept horribly last night. First it took me a good hour to fall asleep when normally I’m quick to fall asleep (10 mins or less most nights). Then every little light change or sound woke me up and I’d have to fight to go back to sleep again. I tossed and turned, woke up with aches and pains. When Master and I switched places as we always do, I felt like I should just stay up; I was that awake. I didn’t of course, I laid on my mat and waited for sleep to take me – 40 mins later.

I can’t explain why I had such a hard time but even now I don’t feel the need to sleep even though I had a poor night of it. Sure that could change, but for me, it’s becoming an increasing issue of restless sleep or unsatisfying sleep. I might have to bring it up with the Dr. on Tuesday.

In Subguide news, I’m considering a podcast of some sort. I think, perhaps I might do the Weekend Reflections as a podcast to start with as that might make it more interesting to readers and attract a new audience. I have other ideas too, but since my follow-through on new things is so slow I think I’ll stick with one thing at a time. So I’m learning about podcasting and what’s required to make it interesting, how long my show might end up being, where to host it and so much more. I’ll have to make intro and outtros eventually which means finding royalty-free music that I like.

I’m also planning on increasing the number of video posts I do to 2 a month. This has taken a lot of planning and the topics might be a little unknown yet but we’ll see. The videos I am producing are getting decent positive reviews and my followers on Youtube are growing so it might be a good next step to increase the amount of content.

Master and I had a three hole day yesterday. For those of you who haven’t followed me long or are new that means he got to use and cum in my mouth, vagina and ass. It had been a good 4 months since the last day. About time I say! It was hot, so hot.

We have 6-8 inches of snow predicted for tonight, which means we are not going anywhere! Going to snuggle in and play some computer games or watch a movie. And no, I probably won’t watch the Superbowl. I’m not a sports fan at all.

I know that a few months ago I had shared that my kitties were visiting the vet so I wanted to give you guys and update on their health. Since I’m a crazy cat lady and adore my babies I’m sure you all want to know how they are! :P

 

Max

Max is now 13. His health is deteriorating slowly. He had early stage Kidney Disease and has been eating special food to help him out. It’s $80 a month to feed him now but worth it if he’s happy. He also is on a Potassium supplement to keep him from vomiting from the low Potassium levels he has. The bare skin on his belly is now mostly gone and he’s stopped over-grooming the area. The vet thought that it was likely related to moving and the agitation with that so we had a pheromone diffuser for 60 days.

Since his oral surgery he’s been back to his old self. I thought he had withdrawn and become cranky because he’s old but turns out I think, and the vet thinks, it was because he was in pain. Longer term followers will remember that he had 2 teeth completely deteriorated and needed removing. He’s lost weight and that has me concerned but the vet doesn’t seem worried yet. He used to be my fat cat, but now he’s skinny. Could be anything causing it but as long as he’s still in healthy limits the vet isn’t going to do anything about it.

So he’ll snuggle and is very talkative when he wants attention. He’ll always be momma’s baby.

Loki

Loki is fat. I’m ashamed that I let him gain so much weight since we adopted him and restricting his diet hasn’t made much change but I remain hopeful. He’s a very healthy kitty and his visit was uneventful. He’s around 9 years old at last guess. He’s so playful and loves his toys. He’ll carry them around with him where ever he’s resting and play with them there. He hates being left alone and even more when we leave the house. He cries. Then when we come back he acts like we’ve been gone forever! He’s definitely a dog-cat and that makes me so happy. I can’t imagine him being in a home where everyone works all day.

The fact that I’ve been away for awhile has nothing to do with the inactivity of my life. No, not at all. Hah.

I always thought that the cost of food at our house was on the high side, but after looking at the USDA Food Plans it appears we are more of a moderate range. We spend about $150 a week on food for the 2 of us. Apparently we could be spending a lot more. But hell, I’d like to be spending under $125 a week so I think I’ll work on that. It shouldn’t be too hard to get there, I hope. Today, as is every Wednesday, is grocery day. I spent right at $150.

I’ll have to really figure out how to cut down the food budget without decreasing the quality of our food. Master likes the good stuff and my special diet foods are hard to get cheap. Maybe some new recipes will be in order. I’ve revived my price book so I can get the better deals and know when I have the better deals.

Next week I have an appointment with a new doctor. I went with an internal medicine MD instead of a family doctor. We’ll see if I feel more respected by the doctor and that they will have the right answers for my issues. It’s time for my thyroid test to make sure it’s behaving. I hate finding new doctors. I’m taking naps every single day in order to function after 4pm and that’s getting annoying! I’m also getting a skin tab removed hopefully. It’s right at my bra strap level on my back so it gets pinched often. ¬†Yeah, I’m sure you all wanted to know that!

Went to a munch yesterday. I’m really hoping that I can make some friends here in the community so that I can stop feeling so isolated. Mingling didn’t really happen till like 30 mins before everyone left though to it was hard to gauge if I made any new acquaintances. One person did contact me for a friend request on FetLife today though so that’s at least one more person I can get to know.

I finished reading the Game of Thrones series. Now I’m just like the rest of the fans that can’t wait for him to publish another book and hopefully he does it before he dies.

Not Dead Yet

I’m just here to say I’m not gone. I’ve been busy with life and enjoying time with Master. It’s been peaceful since Christmas and work has been good. I set the same goals and hope that this year will be the year I achieve them. We’ll see. I’ve not given up yet!

I’ve flown through all 6 Game of Thrones Series in 4 months. Just 400 pages of the last one to go and I’ll be begging the author to get a move on with the series like all the other fans. How many years has it been between books? Six I think?

I’ve got some plans for Subguide and Domguide for this year, and still more for myself. Maybe this will be the year I make a part time wage from the site. I’m closer than I was last year at this time.

I’m also spending a lot of time playing Minecraft. It’s an addiction that I’m happy to say is a fun one. It allows me to be creative and relax. Something that a lot of adults tend to forget these days.

Well, that’s it for now. Just wanted to keep all my loyal readers in the loop. I’ll be back soon. I promise.

While it’s only day 6 in the New Year I feel energized about my choices. I’m in an accountability group that I can feel good in and I’m making small changes so that they will add up over time and not overwhelm me. I think what has killed me before is making huge sweeping food changes when what I really need to do are smaller steps to that goal.

Exercise is also in smaller bites so that I don’t dread the clock. 15 mins seems to be my magic number. If I make all of my workouts 15 mins and just do multiple a day if I can that would be wonderful.

This month’s goals are:

  • 100oz of water per day
  • at least 1 veggie at every meal
  • 90 mins of exercise each week

My long term goal is that magic size 28 that I posted in December. Still hoping for Valentine’s Day. I have 6 inches to lose in my waist and hips to fit into the store’s size chart for that size. We’ll have to see what the next 6 weeks bring. I have confidence I can make a good dent in it and just might squeeze into a 28 by then.

Feeling good and getting healthy is the goal, weight loss is the side effect!

I swear that I’ve not forgotten you dear blog. I think about writing here almost every day, I have things to talk about and always stuff has gone on to share. But other than my wrists being so bad that I’ve not been able to do anything on the computer for any point of time.

But here’s the Christmas update. Bought all of the presents for everyone in my family for $60. I was very happy with the responses I got from my gifts. Everyone loved them :)

Went to Mom’s for Christmas and had a good visit. The kids are getting bigger and more fun to hang around. Mom was less spastic and crazy.

This week Master and I have had a weird bug. We’ve been achy and dizzy and headachy with a bit of congestion. Not flu or a cold but it’s hard to peg down. So, we’ve been laying low.

I’m doing my usual resolutions and we’ll see how far we get on those. More salads, more water, more exercise.
