It was a good morning to be Cooper!
After meowing at the door relentlessly, the BOY woke up to feed him his breakfast. After scarfing it down, he returned to the door where he continued to meow on and off for about an hour until I finally woke up, opened the door, and returned to bed where Cooper situated himself in the direct path of my arm for a good 15 minutes of love. When the BOY joined us, Cooper entertained by chirping out answers to our questions. And then it was on to breakfast number two (for Cooper) who nibbled on a few salami scraps while the eggs cooked.
He then positioned himself in the perfect place to charge the plate to retrieve the egg + salami mixture he’d been eyeing. After that, there was a little time to hunt his mousey toy before curling up for the first of I’m sure numerous naps. And all of this before 10am : )
Reflections of the Workweek…
It was easy to get myself back into the swing of the workweek. The kindness of my coworkers and patients was remarkable and left me with a strong appreciation for the people I interact with each day.
Getting back into the groove of exercise, that is an entirely different story. Partly because of my cold and also because of the –20 degree weather, I didn’t push it this week. And by push it, I mean, do anything!
Somewhere in the middle is studying. I am going through the motions but my heart is just not in it. The bad news…I am just a few weeks away from my test date. Ugh!
I spent this afternoon studying at Starbucks. 3 Bux beverages later, I swung by Trader Joe’s (where I bumped into one of my best friends and her family). When I got home, the BOY decided he wasn’t feeling great (I think he’s coming down with my cold) and so I made a Trader Joe’s Saturday night dinner : )
Cooper was excited to see the cheese and I think that he even snuck a few bites.
Like I mentioned…it was good to be Cooper today!
