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!!!

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!!!

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.

Happy Caturday

Happy Caturday, World!!! I am spending today at home with my cat, Billie Dean. I was suppose to volunteer later this afternoon however due to unexpected events, Cat City is closing early today. Don’t worry everything is okay and cats are still being adopted.

Anyway, I am sitting here in my chair with Billie laying on armrest as I write this blog post and listening to a podcast. A podcast about philosophy. The philosophy podcast I am listening to is Philosophize This. I really enjoy this podcast. I recommend listening to it. I’ve learned a great deal from Philosophize This and continue to learn a lot as I am listening to it again all the way through from the beginning.

I am looking for other podcast to listen to. I am hoping to listen to podcast about mental health, philosophy, recovery, and mindfulness. Hell, I am looking for a podcast where I can learn something and/or be a better person. If you have any suggestions on what podcast to listen to, don’t hesitate to comment the podcast you recommend.

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.

Weekly Check-In

Good Evening, World!!! I am tired as hell, so I will keep this brief. This week has been a long week or at least that was the case regarding work. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job, it was just a long week.

Despite a long week at work, I ended up in the emergency room yesterday (Friday) evening due to having pain in my right kidney. I thought I had another kidney infection but I do not. I have kidney stones and they hurt like fucking hell but at least it is not another kidney infection.

Even though I didn’t get to bed till midnight last night, I still went for a walk with a friend this morning. It was a good way to get some exercise and catch up with a friend. My friend and I hadn’t hung out since last year before the pandemic so it was to catch up with each other in person.

Not only did I hang out with my friend, I volunteered mid afternoon at PAWS Cat City today. It was nice to be able to volunteer and help cats get new furrever homes. I love volunteering.

I don’t 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 my reader, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Everyday Inspiration; Day 9: Writing and Not Writing

When I got today’s inspiration the two things I initially thought on what I do when I am not writing is work and volunteering. I then realized that do write when I work. I have to write notes regarding clients. It is not my favorite part of the job yet I have been informed that I am really good at it.

As far as volunteering, I don’t write. When I volunteer I help take care of cats. Cats that are up for adoption and all of them really cute. I love volunteering my time helping cats get new homes. Volunteering gives me a sense of community as well as a sense of satisfaction.

Another thing I do when I am not writing is listen to music. I listen to music to help with my mental health as well as to have background noise as I live alone with my cat, Billie Dean. I sometimes dance to the music. When I dance to the music, my cat, Billie gives me this weird look that makes me laugh.

I also listen to podcast when I am not writing. I love listening to podcast. I listen to podcast that can educate me on a topic, I do not know much about. I also listen to some podcast for the entertainment. I love to learn as well as to be entertained.

I do many more things when I do not write but I do not want to bore you with everything. I am grateful that I have the ability to read and write.
