Weekly Check-In

Good Evening, World!!! It is that time of week where I do my weekly check in. When it comes to work, work went okay. My direct supervisor is finally back from being on leave. I am sure happy she is back on leave as she is an awesome supervisor. My temporary supervisor is pretty awesome as well.

So, I took this past Wednesday off for self care. Specifically, I took it off to take Billie to get blood work done for his kidney disease. I got a call back from his vet saying his blood work is now in normal range. It is in normal range because of his kidney food diet he has been eating.

Another reason I took Wednesday off was because I wanted to volunteer at PAWS Cat City. I love volunteering at Cat City. When I volunteer there I get my kitten fix and realize how much work kittens are. As much as I love kittens I am grateful that I get my kitten fix volunteering as they are a lot of work.

As much as having a kitten would be fun, I am glad I have an adult cat. My cat Billie Dean, is an adult cat. In fact he is just around seven and a half years. But then again, Billie’s age is a guesstimate due to him being a rescue. Even though I “rescued” Billie, I feel like he was that one that rescued me.

I do not have much more to say in this particular weekly check-in post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated that you, the reader read my blog. If it wasn’t for you the reader, reading my blog, I wouldn’t be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Awake Too Early on a Saturday Morning

Good Morning, World!!! It is five fifty nine in the morning and I woke up from a not so fun nightmare That is related to PTSD. My cat Billie Dean is laying on my lap as I type this really short blog post as I would like to go back to sleep since it is Saturday morning. As much as I wish I was still asleep I am grateful for my cat, Billie knowing what to do after waking up from a horrific nightmare.

I don’t have much to say in this particular blog post because I want to get back to sleep. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you the reader do read my blog. If it wasn’t for the reader reading my blog, I wouldn’t be writing my blog. Again, from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Grateful for the Weekend

Happy Friday Evening, World!!! I am now off work for the weekend and am grateful to have the time off. On that note my direct supervisor is back from leave and I am more than thrilled that she is back. I am beyond thrilled she is back because she supervises with a style that not only can I learn from her but she can learn from me. I really like the fact that my supervisor is willing to teach me as well as learn from me. Not very many supervisors do that.

Now that the weekend has officially started for me I plan to just sit back really not do much. My weekend will consist of doing art work and listening to podcast. Specifically, the type of art work I will be doing is coloring. Coloring is a form of mindful meditation practice for me. While I color this weekend, I will me listening to a podcast on philosophy. The specific podcast on philosophy that I will be listening to while I color is Philosophize This. I love learning things as I create things.

I don’t have much more to say in this particular blog post except that I am so happy it is the weekend. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you the reader, read my blog. If it wasn’t for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. I hope you all have great weekend. Happy Friday and Peace Out, World!!!

Working From Home Today & My Cat is Helping

Good Afternoon and Happy Friday, World!!! Usually, this time of day, I am working from the offices. Well, today I am working but I am working from home. Of course, my cat, Billie Dean is helping with my work. Actually, it more like Billie giving me snuggles and lap time as I work from home.

Part of the reason why I am working from home is because I did not sleep well last night due to insomnia so I had the option of working from home. I am grateful that I have the ability to work from home today as I was able to take a couple of naps. To be honest with you all, I would rather work in the office than at home as I get more work done when I am in the office than working from home.

As challenging as it is working from home is at times, I am glad its Friday and that I can just put my work computer away. Usually, I would have to take public transportation home from the office so working from today is a good thing. I am just so tired and want to curl up and take a nap with my cat Billie.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you do read my blog. If it was not for you the reader, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Happy Friday and Peace Out, World!!!

Friday Eve (aka Thursday) Ramblings

Happy Friday Eve, World!!! Friday Eve is also known at Thursday or at least it is here on the West Coast of the United State of America. I am really glad that it is Thursday and that I took yesterday (Wednesday) off. As much as I love my job, today was a particularly tough day for me emotionally. The topics my clients discussed with me today, triggered some of my own issues which is to be expected from time to time.

As I write this particular blog, I am sitting in my bed with my cat, Billie Dean laying right next to me. He is purring up a storm and nudging my hand so he can be petted. I love my sweet kitty, Billie as is my best friend and gives me unconditional love.

After, I finish this particular blogs, I will be listening to a podcast on philosophy as I do some art by coloring a coloring book with some swear words in it. Actually, the podcast on philosophy I will be listening to is Philosophize This. Listening to this podcast as I do some art work by coloring, helps me learn. I am grateful for what I am learning about philosophy as I create some art work by coloring.

The weather in Seattle is becoming sucky as it is getting windy and the rain will come shortly. Windy here isn’t exactly as windy as the Santa Anna winds in California and definitely not as strong as a tornado or hurricane. So, the Seattle weather is perfection for listening to a podcast on philosophy as I do art work by coloring.

I do not have much more to talk about in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you the reader do read my blog. If it was not for you the reader, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Not wanting to be a Cranky Bucket at Work

Good Morning, World!!! I am unable to sleep again. I don’t think not going into work isn’t an option at the moment as the clients I have today are struggling with some minor crisis. I need to find someway to get somewhat of a better night of sleep.

One of those ways is to take a sleeping pill but sadly it makes me groggy but at least the grogginess at least goes away with time but not quick enough. I really don’t want to be a cranky bucket at work. I also don’t want to call in sick due to the lack of sleep. I really love my job. My job means the world to me.

On the plus note at least my cat has been extra lovely Dovey with me. Billie Dean is an amazing cat and I love him so much. I may have rescued him but I think he was and is the one doing the rescuing of me. Billie is really a great lap cat and helps me not be a cranky bucket when I have to start work at eight in the morning Seattle time.

I am thinking I might have to take a my sleeping meds so I can get some sleep so I am not a cranky bucket at work. I don’t have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog post. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you do read my blog. If it wasn’t for you the reader for reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart from reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

So Far a Good Day Off with A Goodbye to Dr. B

Good Late Afternoon, World!!! Overall, today has been a good day. I started off the day with having breakfast with some fabulous friends. It is always nice spending time with friends especially when they treat you to a nice meal.

I then took my cat, Billie Dean into his last appointment with Dr. B to get bloodwork done. From what I was told, Billie allowed Dr. B and crew one last belly rub as it will be their last time seeing Billie as sadly Dr. B is going out of business for various reason. I will miss her as Billie’s vet but understand why she is going out of business. On that note I just got a call from Dr. B and Billie’s kidney’s are in the normal range which means the kidney food is doing its job. On the sad note, today was a goodbye to Dr. B from me and Billie since Dr. B is going out of business. Dr. B is the sweetest and most compassionate vet ever. She is just an amazing vet and am sad she is having to go out of business so the goodbye is to Dr. B and her amazing crew.

I did do an extra volunteer shift today since I took the day off from work to take my sweet cat, Billie to the vet. I love volunteering and enjoy getting my kitten fix at PAWS Cat City. As much as I love kittens, I personally wouldn’t want to get one as they are a lot of work which is why I get my kitten fix when I volunteer at Cat City. I love all the cats at Cat City and wish I could be that “crazy cat person” but I don’t have the space nor money to have any more cats.

Now that I am home from everything I’ve done today, I have showered and ready to take it easy. I am planning on reading a book on philosophy as well as listen to a podcast on philosophy. The book I am going to be reading is “The Republic and Other Works” by Plato. I am really enjoying this book. Now as far the podcast I will be listening to is “Philosophize This.” I really enjoy listening to this podcast. I learn so much from it.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you do read my blog. If it wasn’t for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

A Sleepless in Seattle Type of Night

Good Morning, World!!! It is just after three o’clock in the morning here in Seattle. Sadly, I cannot sleep. I am blaming it on insomnia. Insomnia sucks shit. At least I have today off so I can take it easy. Also, my cat, Billie Dean, is keeping me company with laying right beside me at the moment as I type this blog post.

The things that have been keeping me busy tonight since I am unable to sleep is listening to music while I do some art. I am listening to some AC/DC and Guns & Roses as I color. I am coloring a Mandela from a coloring book I bought on Amazon. As much as I am not a fan of buying stuff on Amazon, I am grateful for the coloring book options. For some reason coloring a Mandela while listening to eighty’s rock music is quite soothing. I love AC/DC and Gun & Roses.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post as I want to try to get some sleep. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you the reader read my blog. If it weren’t for you the reader, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Looking Forward to Tomorrow

Hello, World!!! I am looking forward to tomorrow. I have decided to take tomorrow (Wednesday) off. Primarily because my cat, Billie Dean, is getting blood work done from the vet. Tomorrow will be Billie’s last time going to Dr. B because the property is being sold and she sadly can’t find any affordable commercial real estate. So, Billie is getting bloodwork done so we can have more up to date readings on his kidneys. This is so his new vet will have a baseline for the kidneys so he can be treated appropriately.

On that note, I will also be volunteering at PAWS Cat City. I love being able to pick up extra volunteer shifts when I can. I know this sounds weird and/or odd but volunteering at Cat City is a form of self care for me. It’s self care for me because it gives me more purpose in my life. Yes, my work gives me purpose however volunteering gives me even more purpose to my life.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you read my blog. If it wasn’t for you the reader, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Goodnight and Peace Out, World!!!
