Hey It’s Jet Here.
(My BFF, Savannah, wrote this reminder, and ahem… I hope she does not mind me borrowing it!) It’s THURSDAY and that means another VBP Blog Hop starts all over again!!
And you know the drill now, right?…just grab the badge and code…put it on your VBP post sometime between today and next Wednesday…and be sure to come back and visit the blue froggy symbol at the bottom of my page. Give him/her a click and enter your VBP post into the linky tool…PAWSOME!!
My young neighbor, Ruby, stopped by this past Saturday night to give us “cuddles”, to check on Mom, and to join us for our evening constitutional. Mom suggested a right route towards Miss Mary Ann’s house, except for crossing the main street to walk parallel to our usual side. We then cross back over at the end of the long block to return to the balance of our weekday morning route.
The paramount (VBP) sniffs on the opposite side of the street derive from a highly scented traffic light pole, and a swath (VBP) of softer grass variety (our native grass is scratchy) which feels like pillows under our paws. Little Miss Twirl and Poo loves to deposit her evening solid waste in this area. I find myself unstoppably drawn to the poofy grass mounds surrounding the soldier straight line of royal palm trees for what Mom and Ruby call Potty 92, 243 and 517!
Anyway, Ruby had custody of Little Miss Straight and Narrow while I walked a different pattern. As I did, Ruby busted out a rap… here’s the “chorus” Mom and I can remember…
Hey… I am Zig Zag Jetty and I’m here to stay, I go back and forth when I walk this way! Cause I’m Zig Zag Jetty and I’m (ok, here’s where we forget!)
I’ll ask Mom to see if Ruby will repeat or recreate her rhymes for Mom to write down. All I can tell you is that they both end up laughing really hard out on the walk. Mom, Little Miss Songbird and I already enjoy Ruby’s regular singing (she’s in Chorus you know) and Mom tells her how talented she is. She often serenades (VBP) us on our walks.
Mom update: She saw her Dr. V for the first follow up… she got an A for following directions and her instincts. Lots more medication planning, tests to do, monitoring to continue – a positive visit and the beginning of a VERY close and FREQUENT relationship with Dr. V!
Thyroid update: Dr. Schaffer gave me an A+ (ok, Mom too) for my 3lb. weight loss, my great test results and said the tiny dose is perfect, keep going!
THANKFUL THURSDAY: Mom: Thank you from the bottom of my heart and G.I. track for your incredible comments to Saturday’s post. I’ve read most of them and will answer more soon. Your feedback helped me immensely (VBP) and the fact you took such care and time to send words of support and understanding, well… that’s precious to me. I took many of your comments to the dr. with me yesterday, so thank you.
I was able to write my Kitchen Counselor newsletter, plan and execute an amazing Diabetic Peer Support Class in the inner city on top of my regular job since Friday. I still need more rest than usual; however, I’m incredibly grateful.
Another great Zig Zag day!
